Carrie Prejean Attempts Speech

Carrie Prejean, former Miss California and gay marriage hater, spoke to the Values Voters Summit today. I watched a tape of this speech and I have to wonder, how could anyone not fall asleep during it. She sounds like she is trying very hard to formulate every word. I had to wonder if her reading skills were impaired or she was just so used to answering pageant questions with a halting deliberate style that is supposed to look like you are thinking.

She is the best they could do? Boy the conservative movement is in such big trouble. First they rally round Sarah Palin, the brain dead former beauty queen and former governor of Alaska and now this air head. Why are there no brilliant women in the conservative movement? Guess they are too smart to buy the right wing crap.

Bill O'Reilly Back Public Option For Health Insurance

Once again I am taken aback! Now Bill O'Reilly is coming out in favor of a "public option" to private health insurance? OMG!

Insurance Company Gets Justice - Fined $10 Million For Revoking HIV+ Teens Insurance

It's about time we took a good long look at the health insurance companies in this country. I guess the South Carolina Supreme Court feels the same way. Today they ordered Assurant (formerly called Fortis) to pay $10 million for revoking the insurance policy of a 17-year-old college student after he tested positive for HIV.

This kind of behavior goes on all the time in the insurance world and it's high time it stopped. Health insurance companies are blood suckers who prey on healthy Americans and deny coverage to those who are sick. Pretty sweet business huh?

Imagine opening a casino where the only bets you could make were "long shots". That's the kind of odds these guys want. If there is a remote chance you are going to ever get sick, they will turn you down and if you do get sick while insured they will try every trick in the book to deny coverage.

Next time you hear one of those talk show liars saying we have the best health care system in the world, send them to this story and let them backpedal their way out of it. We need national health care NOW!

Baucus Is An Idiot And A Whore! (Metaphorically Speaking)

After getting seven figures from health insurance lobbyists, Max Baucus has trotted out his crappy bill and it stinks to high heaven. It is exactly what I was afraid of, a bill that mandates everyone must buy insurance and gives all that money to insurance companies. What a f*%king surprise?!?

This whole process is a huge gaff for the Senate and especially for Mas Baucus. He needs to toss this crap out and just propose a single payer government controlled system. It works in just about every other industrialized country, why not here? Well because we have a multi-billion dollar insurance cabal running Congress. Oy Vey!

Atlanta Police Raid Details Offer Troubling Allegations

The police department released the details of complaints filed against the Atlanta Police after the raid on the Eagle Bar. The specifics are troubling to say the least.

The similarities between this outrage and the raid on the Rainbow Lounge in Ft. Worth are stunning. It seems the police were having fun as they abused patrons and made them lie face down on the floor for up to an hour. Some say they were kicked in the ribs, and one offered this quote by police in his formal complaint:
"Then I heard laughing and giggling and saying this is more fun than raiding niggers with crack. They also told us to shut the fuck up unless we were spoken too [sic]."
Southern Voice has more.

OMG I Agree WIth The Grand Mufti!

What a week, first I agreed with George W about Sarah Palin's lack of experience and now I am on board with the Grand Mufti of Egypt.. Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa declared it was OK for women to wear trousers, but stretch pants were unacceptable. Boy isn't that the truth!

Now let me hear those complaints!

Max Baucus Is An Idiot

Strong headline? Yup, but true. Look at the facts. He spent weeks negotiating with Republicans and watering down a health care bill until it had no public option and just about everything the GOP wanted and they still won't sign on. Of course they won't, they are Republicans! Their mission is to keep things the same, thus the name conservatives.

Max Baucus is cowed by their antics and has let the GOP screw any chances of a meaningful health care bill and for what? NOTHING! The Democratic party has control of Congress yet they are afraid to act like it. If that isn't idiotic, I don't know what is.

Truth About Insurance Companies - The Real Death Panels

Video From The Million Moron March

After watching this video I understand Al Qaeda disbanded. They figured , "why bother?" The level of ignorance is astounding.

OMG! I Agree With George W. Bush?

In a new tell all book about the behind-the-scenes goings on in the Bush White House, former speech writer Matt Latimer details a quote from "W". He is speaking about Sarah Palin when he was told she was the VP choice for McCain.
"This woman is being put into a position she is not even remotely prepared for,” he said. “She hasn’t spent one day on the national level. Neither has her family. Let’s wait and see how she looks five days out.”
I couldn't agree more. Palin was the least competent choice McCain could have made and she might have lost him the election with any "thinking conservatives" and I use that term rarely.

Now It's The Catholics!

First it was the Mormons who funded the huge effort in California to defeat equal marriage rights for LGBT people, now it's the Catholics. The same church that brought your pedophile priests is pumping millions into Maine to throw the election against equality.

Anonymous Tip Prompted Atlanta Eagle Raid

OK, it is the semi official word that teh raid on the Atlanta Eagle was because of an anonymous tip to the Mayor's office. Funny that they would send 10 police cars and 15 officers for a single anonymous tip. So if this isn't harassment, then annonymous tips about straight bars should bring similar results.

Thanks to Dan Savage for postin the Atlanta Mayors address and email as well as a list of straight bars here.

Mayor Shirley Franklin
Tel: 404.330.6100
Fax: 404.658.6893

Come on folks, the mayor of Atlant is standing by waiting for your tips!
