What A Boehner

By The Reverend Published: October 31, 2009

John Boehner (R-OH), like the FOX "news" network, often practices the ancient mysterious art of "making sh*t up." That's what he did this morning in the above video clip.

Disloyal Opposition

By The Reverend Published: October 30, 2009

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY)
Sen. Christopher Bond (R-MO)
Sen. Jim Bunning (R-KY)
Sen. Thomas Coburn (R-OK)
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX)
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Sen. Michael Enzi (R-WY)
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT)
Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK)
Sen. Jefferson Sessions (R-AL)
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)
Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS)

Those are the Republican senators who voted against cloture on a bill extending unemployment benefits. Apparently, those Republicans do not care too much about the plight of those who are unemployed and whose unemployment insurance checks have run out. And why would they care? Most of those senators are wealthy. Why would they be in a hurry to help unemployed Americans?

Vote No On Ohio Initiatives

By The Reverend Published: October 28, 2009

Next Tuesday Ohio voters will decide the outcome of three statewide initiatives. The Reverend's recommendation is for Ohio voters to vote "no" on all three.

Issue 1 is, I think, a symbolic initiative, a feel-good intitiative which proposes to give Ohio servicepeople, especially those who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, up to a $1000 bonus as a symbol of Ohio's appreciation for their service.

Opt-Out? Why?

By The Reverend Published: October 27, 2009

I've been busy. Normal daily blogging will continue tomorrow. Here's something quick on yesterday's health reform news-front.

Surprisingly, to me at least, the health reform bill to be introduced in the Senate will include a public option.....

Ain't That Tough Enough?

By The Reverend Published: October 22, 2009

The Fabulous Thunderbirds, one of my favorite contemporary blues groups, made the song my blog title rips off famous back in the 90's. I entitle my post with it today because of the schizophrenic messages coming from conservative and Villager voices over the 10-months-in-office President Obama.

Here's what I mean.

Duplicitous Blue Dogs

By The Reverend Published: October 15, 2009

Democratic representatives Jane Harmon and Loretta Sanchez, both of California, and both self-labeled Blue Dog Democrats, have come out strongly in favor of a public option insurance provision in the final health care reform bill. Good for them.

If you've noticed, Blue Dogs are the darlings of corrupt mainstream media,...oddly though,.... only when Democratics hold power in Congress. Often the media gasbags, themselves pawns of big corporate interests, refer to the opposition of the Mighty Blue Dogs as the Genuinely-Serious concern of great patriots who serve only to resolutely stand watch over our tax dollars.

Joementum Rides His High Horse Again

By The Reverend Published: October 14, 2009

There is no more self-satisifed, arrogant, repellent fellow in Congress than Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT). As a Democrat, he couldn't get his nose up George W. Bush's derriere far enough. Lieberman, like all totally discredited neo-conservatives, not only cheered every bloody move by Bush/Cheney in Iraq, but encouraged the Terror Twins to attack Iran as well.

Health Care Reform Debate: Just Starting

By The Reverend Published: October 13, 2009

I've purposely avoided writing very much about the alleged debate allegedly going on over health care reform. As I see it, up til now, we haven't been debating anything. However, now with President Max Baucus' (D-MT) immaculately-conceived version of health reform coming up for a vote today in his Senate Finance Committee, we're getting closer to starting the real debate. What we've had up til now has been the equivalency of a pre-game cheerleader dance routine......something to look at and divert our attention but having nothing, really, to do with the "game."

Worth noting is how Village conventional wisdom on health care reform legislation instantly coagulated around President Max Baucus' Finance Committee bill. You would never know that there are FOUR other congressional health reform versions to be considered, all of which, by the way, include a strong public option alternative.

The Nobel Peace Prize

By The Reverend Published: October 10, 2009

I must say that I really haven't been surprised by the response of conservatives and Village-whore media to President Obama's winning of the Nobel Peace Prize yesterday. From the start of his presidency it has been made clear that the main objective of Obama's instant-opposition has been to see Obama "fail." Winning a prestigious award is not "failing".....or is it?

For today's conservatives, Democrats have no legitimate right to govern, even when elected by a wide margin.

The Insane Gang-Rape Clown Posse

By The Reverend Published: October 8, 2009

Republicans don't take too kindly to trial lawyers. Not lawyers, as such....but "trial" lawyers. To hear conservatives and Republicans talk the way they do about them-there "trial" lawyers, you might be led to believe that, whoever they are, trial lawyers are just slightly less dangerous to our nation than al-Qaeda members.

One recent example of this we-hate-trial-lawyers craze has been the dropping of the occasional "tort reform" bomb during health care reform discussions. Though it has been clearly shown by neutral data compilers that medical malpractice lawsuits only account for somewhere between 1% and 3% of our total national health care costs.....Republicans, when they have offered anything at all, have always raised the idea of limiting, capping what those trial lawyers can win for their crippled, butchered or dead clients.

Uniquely Exceptional Quagmire

By The Reverend Published: October 7, 2009

The United States is a uniquely exceptional country in the world and always has been. Take the former Soviet Union as an example of how superior the US. is. The Soviets were silly enough to allow communist authoritarians to rule over them. The U.S., on the other hand, is a much more advanced society in which only corporate oligarchs can be our authoritarian rulers. The U.S. is a Christian nation and the former Soviets were only godless atheists bound for hell.

Exceptionally Imbecilic

Yesterday, the House voted 258-163 to approve a non-binding recommendation prohibiting the transfer of detainees from Guantanamo to the U.S. for trial or imprisonment. 88 Democrats voted with the majority.

Here's the typical defense for continuing, indefinitely, American offshore gulags.....
