“Unlikely bedfellows.” Heh. Some days you can’t tell the tops from the bottoms. Though most days I feel like anyone outside the Beltway or the Koch brothers’ sphere of influence is pretty much a bottom.
Surprised the mortal shit out of me, it did. I was working and didn’t have time to pay close attention — and probably won’t for about three weeks — but my initial reaction was, “Hmm. Seems like another attempt to paint Obama even deeper into the tax-and-spend corner.”
I fully expected the decision (by 9 people who already have Govt. health care) to go the other way too. What’s next? Good roads and a new national bike race here? Hope you house situation is getting better !
Doug, every time the Supremes gather to hand down their wisdom I picture Tom Waits as the emperor in the Colosseum, giving a big thumbs down to some poor shlub. Whenever they do something approximating the right thing I start looking for the man behind the curtain.
What, oh what, would that great windbag do in Canada? What with their socialized medicine, higher taxes and love of hockey. I guess he could live in BC where they love plaid. Or maybe Quebec where the French are revered for whatever it is that the French are known for (besides Freedumb Fries of course).
Tickle me amazed that the SCOTUS went outside the box for the first time in a few years. Joy, oh joy!
I’m sure Rush would be welcomed with open arms by Prime Minister Harper, he of very red neck and narrow mind. Harper claims to be a Canadian citizen, but he must have surely been windswept from Texas. The latest move here “Up North” is to close addictions facilities because of budget restraints, while introducing a massive Crime Bill to construct more prisons (crime is at a 20 year low, BTW).
Hope the best for you and yours with the fires, OG. I saw some footage on the news last night, and it looks scary as hell.
Our Italian friends were puzzled when we mentioned the healthcare law being upheld….they still can not understand how the hell the supposedly richest, most civilized country on earth has NOT had this for decades….but you know what my wife says….
