Oh God, I hope people don’t see this and think it’s doctors in the US who are the cause of this. Clueless dolts are gonna assume it’s for golf and cars or whatever, when it’s insurance companies, Big Pharma and privatized hospitals.And $7k less to have a babby here in Germany? Damn, WTF am I waiting for?
BRB, getting knocked up!

It amazes me that most Americans don’t seem to know this. Romneycare has resulted in coverage of 98 percent of the citizens of Massachusetts. Only about one percent of small businesses opt out. The idea that it’s a states rights thing has been blown away by the Supremes. That Mitt is running against his own successful health care plan is proof of the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Republican platform. The Republican party stands for nothing other than keeping taxes low on rich people.

And continued oppression of women and minorities. Don’t forget that…it’s kind of important.

My 50-year-old brother died suddenly on Thursday, August 9, 2012.

My mother, who lives with me and my family due to health reasons, was speaking to him on the phone a few hours before he died. He had slipped and fallen in the shower earlier that morning and was in a lot of…

Nothing will irritate your right-wing friends more than sharing this post. Bonus: It’s 100% factual.

Since when do right-wingers care about things like facts?

Rachel Maddow explains what the hell ‘Fast and Furious’ is all about

Maddow explains how the GOP smear campaign being waged by Darrell Issa started with a conspiracy theory from Alabama militiaman (read: right-wing terrorist) Michael Vanderboegh. Vanderboegh is best-known for advocating vandalism against the HQs of Democratic politicians nationwide in retaliation for the passage of the Affordable Care Act:

“Operation Fast and Furious” was a plan begun under the Bush administration that intentionally allowed unauthorized guns to be sold with the intention of following those guns and seeing if they would lead to Mexican drug cartels.

“Whatever you think of that style of law enforcement program, whatever you may think of the George W. Bush administration for beginning it or the Obama administration for continuing it,” said Rachel, “To this militia blogger guy, to the ‘Break their windows, break them NOW’ guy, this got re-imagined as a conspiracy to eliminate the Second Amendment.”

And of course, whenever right wingers think their gun ownership rights may be threatened, they tend to go full-tilt-boogie batshit cuckoo crazy, which is exactly what has happened.

“If it doesn’t sound like it makes sense,” warned Maddow, “It’s because it doesn’t make sense.”
