In the Belly of the Beast

Since I was forced to step back from the daily fray, I've developed a curious sense of detachment. I don't feel compelled to instantly respond to everything. So I've been thinking and collecting links for the last couple of days. I really am working on a post or two trying to make a coherent narrative out of all this musing, but in the interim, here's a somewhat lengthy video. It took some guts for this old guy to walk through the crowd with this sign. Hate to think what would have happened if he didn't have a police escort.

Guess the protesters want to keep their event ideologically pure. Funny that sounds sort of like Hitler, doesn't it?

What I don't understand is why anyone other than insurance company execs or major stockholders would be so incensed by the idea of a public option? Because their insurance companies might have to get better to compete? Don't they know that without a public option, all those high risk, pre-existing condition people will be forced into THEIR risk pool thus raising their private rates?

oh, and allow me to point out that my word verification is "sombosom"

LOL on the word verify.

I think it's pretty clear they live to piss off liberals. Anything that's associated with reform that might credit Dems, they will be against. Think we played it wrong. We should have asked for the opposite of what we really want. If we were pushing to keep the status quo, they'd be holding signs asking for single payer. :)
