President Makes GOP Tow the Line On Health; Right-Wing Extends Patriot Act

Everybody is talking about the phony health summit tomorrow when the mad trio is again trying to cram down the throats of Republicans the health care reform plan Americans have said over and over they don’t want. If I were not a moderate individual and slow to dramatize, I would say that this, plus CO2 reduction by authoritarian Presidential order, looks like an old -fashioned coup. Ain’t gonna  happen. Don’ worry, and I am not talking about militias composed half of puffy old men. (Those are liberal wet-dreams.) Think about it: How many ways are there to stop quickly an illegitimate take-over of government in this great country?  “CO2 reduction by Presidential order” refers to the EPA’s announced attempt to regulate CO2 emissions. When the President says to jump, the EPA jumps;  that’s the way it’s supposed to be.

In the meantime, hardly anyone is paying attention to what the Senate did, or did not do, today (2/24/10). The Patriot Act, that abominable violation of the Constitution, that massive attack on civil liberties by the unspeakable, right-wing Bush administration, that horror, has been prolonged by the Senate.  Without any change at all. Remember that the party of Obama still has a 50/41 majority in the Senate.

Damn right-wing Republicans!
