Cuz, y'know, it helps me think

August 17, 2009

So, apparently public debate about health care is ... intimidating somehow, because more and more folks are showing up to town hall meetings with guns.

From the Arizona Republic:

A man, who decided not to give his name, was walking around the pro-health care reform rally at 3rd and Washington streets, with a pistol on his hip, and an AR-15 (a semi-automatic assault rifle) on a strap over his shoulder.

"Because I can do it," he said when asked why he was armed. "In Arizona, I still have some freedoms."

Two police officers were staying very close to the man.

I suppose this man needs to demonstrate that he has "some freedoms" because it's so unnerving and menacing to discuss ... health care.

Short Description: 
The Powers that Be have ensured that our health remains for sale.

In what will surely one day be known as a case study in the downfall of our Republic, the Congress and -- presumably -- the President are poised to enact health care 'reform' legislation that won't allow us to opt into a Medicare-style single-payer plan. In related news, the for-profit health care industry has spent about $1.5 million per day on Capitol Hill over the past several weeks to make sure that we never have that option.

The score? Plutocrats 587, People 0.

How do we change the national conversation about war and peace? Also: Update on health care reform legislation

program date: 
Wed, 07/22/2009

Seven months into a new administration and the nation still finds itself embroiled in two Asian wars. Many Americans would have difficulty explaining how the Obama administration's conduct of these wars differs from the last administration's. They're certainly not being helped by policymakers and pundits who are working overtime to marginalize arguments for American withdrawal from the region. With the economy now people's foremost concern, how does the peace movement change the national conversation about war and peace?
