Democrats about to make history

I'm too superstitious to celebrate before the final vote but it looks like the Democratic party is going to pull it off and pass health care reform. The bill isn't that great, the process was and continues to be incredibly ugly but the achievement is worthy of applause. This was not an easy victory. It's good to see the Democrats finally stand up to the Republicans and do something. And good for them to see they can do it.

Nancy Pelosi has been a rock in this cesspool of simpering GOP stupidity and deceit. She really doesn't get enough credit for the work she does and neither does our President. I'm told he made 92 phone calls in this last push.

Granted the bill is not perfect, but there were lot of competing interests to balance; don't see how we could have done much better in this climate. It's still the biggest social program in decades and it's a place to start. This is just the first step in a long process. I think President Obama did his share of the work. He has my deep graditude and mad props to all the Dems that got it done. Yeah, even Rahm. [White House photo-Pete Souza]

I'm more worried than ever. Threats against the president continue to become more numerous and the Palm Beach County Gun show was jam packed with people stocking up on ammunition and some were talking revolution.

I was saying to someone the other day -- that I'm the result of a hundred generations who knew when it was time to get out and I'm starting to get that old feeling.

It is concerning Fogg. The hardcore crazies are melting down. The death threats on Twitter and FB are getting worse. The rudeness is at epic levels. But I'd like to think most of these guys are all hat and no cattle though. I don't think they would really hit the streets.
