Most doctors want universal health care

More than half of U.S. doctors now favor switching to a national health care plan and fewer than a third oppose the idea, according to a survey that came out today.

Filling in on 104.3 MYfm

I’ll be filling in on 104.3 MYfm Friday night and Saturday morning. I’ll be doing the usual syndicated Saturday Night 80’s show as well. See you on the radio!

Expelled

There’s a propaganda film called “Expelled” currently making the rounds that attempts to dress up creationism in “intelligent design” garb in order to pass as some kind of science, and attempts to link any and everyone who doesn’t buy creationism with Hitler, Stalin and the Holocaust.

And it’s shamelessly hosted by Ben Stein, who is Jewish. Does he really believe this crap?

Here’s a review of the film when they trotted this pablum out to a friendly audience in Orlando FL: Link

Coincidentally, the Longwood mega-church where they showed it is a church I used to attend in the early 90s. I wonder how many of my former friends are still there… and if they really think I had a hand in the murder of six million Jews, or supported Hitler and Stalin simply because I don’t accept creationism.

A question I’d love to ask, if they’d stop screeching at me for being Satan in human form, is which religious creation fable should we teach in science class? After all, there are many, and if they’re really interested in “intellectual openness,” they’ve got to make room for other religions’ origin myths too, not just the Judeo-Christian one.

Another question: If they’re really interested in a “fair hearing for opposing ‘scientific’ views,” will they allow biologists to teach evolution in their Sunday schools if we must allow religious pundits and preachers to teach creationsim in our science classes?

Somehow I think not, being that we’re all mass murderers aiming to drink the blood of Christian babies or something.

She wasn’t lying!

Her “misstatement” that she made nine or ten times, the one she attributes to “sleep deprivation” (even though she says she’s more qualified to answer that pesky telephone at 3am, and hopefully wouldn’t “misspeak” into it), turns out to maybe be true after all! I think this video — obviously NOT tampered with in any way, certainly NOT faked — proves that maybe Hillary was telling the truth.

Judge for yourself!

Hillary threatening Democratic majority in the House

Hillary is now endangering the Democratic Party’s majority in the House, all in the name of destroying a candidate who had the audacity of challenging Hillary’s “entitlement” to the nomination.

From AmericaBlog:

As you know, Hillary got her top donors to threaten to pull to pull their support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). Basically, 20 top donors wrote Speaker Pelosi and told her that if she doesn’t publicly endorse Hillary’s effort to steal Obama’s elected delegates, they may pull their money from the DCCC. Make no mistake, Hillary was behind yesterday’s letter threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Your top donors don’t make a public move like that against our more important elected official in the House without Hillary’s approval (and most likely, Hillary’s coordination).

The thing is, Hillary has now moved beyond endangering our race for the White House. She’s now risking our House Majority.

Hillary is hurting herself

Hillary’s negative campaigning is biting her in the ass. Her approval numbers have plummeted.

As expected, one of the two major Democratic candidates saw a downturn in the latest NBC/WSJ poll, but it’s not the candidate that you think. Hillary Clinton is sporting the lowest personal ratings of the campaign. Moreover, her 37 percent positive rating is the lowest the NBC/WSJ poll has recorded since March 2001, two months after she was elected to the U.S. Senate from New York.

Sleep deprivation

It would appear that the Wright controversy (and Hillary’s very transparent attempt to re-ignite it today) has not had any long term damaging effect on Obama.

Also today, Clinton gave an excuse for her “misstatement” about her Bosnia trip — she was “sleep deprived.” Sleep deprived? For someone who wants us to think she’s more qualified to answer the phone at 3am? Really? Sleep deprived?

If she was sleep deprived, she must have been sleep deprived since December.
Haven’t we already had 8 years of mealy-mouth excuses and half-truths and embellishments and lies? Isn’t it time for a change?
