as watered down as a beer in a Utah bar, but it's something. A start.

The health care reform bill may be, as a friend of mine just said, as watered down as a beer in a Utah bar, but it's something. A start. I am glad that the screaming naysayers don't have all the control all the time. only, say, 95%.....

How to tell Steve Lynch what you think of his plan to vote against the health-insurance bill 2

Draft Harmony Wu for the 9th Congressional District

Harmony Wu is seriously considering a run to represent the 9th Congressional District in the US House of Representatives. Like many of us, she has become frustrated with Congressman Steve Lynch's lack of commitment to progressive issues, especially health care reform. Please help progressive democrats collect signatures for Harmony Wu's nomination papers this weekend!

http://tinyurl.com/DraftWu

For those of you who don't know her, Harmony is a Needham mother of two who took it upon herself to coordinate Needham for the Obama campaign, and shocked everyone in the state with what she was able to deliver. Since then, she has been an inspired and passionate volunteer political organizer. She has led the charge for health care organizing in Lynch's district, mobilizing hundreds of people to call and visit Lynch's office in support of reform. Out of frustration, she has decided to consider a run against him both to show that there is passionate support for health care reform, and to hopefully remove him from office if he votes No.

So, what can we do?

What's your credit card company charging you now?

[float=right]IMAGE(http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk143/nfsagan/credit-card.png)[/float]
President Obama signed the Credit CARD Act of 2009 into law May 22, 2009, following passage days earlier in the Senate and the House. The requirements are being phased in. The first batch took effect Aug. 20, 2009, and the majority of provisions started Feb. 22, 2010, while some begin in August and December 2010. Now is a good time to look at your statement and see what your credit card company is charging you on your balance.

Congresscritters successfully negotiated the delayed implementation schedule to allow credit card companies to structure their business so that they could continue to make the profits they had made in the past, despite the new regulations.

Scott "Zoolander" Brown digs pink leather shorts

Like so many politicians who have presented themselves as folk heroes, Scott Brown is a lot more complicated. He’s a real estate lawyer with a dozen years in the Massachusetts State Legislature — not exactly a career politician, but not an outsider either — and two spacious homes, one on a leafy cul-de-sac in the Boston suburb of Wrentham, Mass., the other about four blocks from the Atlantic in Rye, N.H. He’s indisputably self-made and indeed something of a he-man, but with a background that’s part Horatio Alger, part Zoolander.

British High Court Finds US Guilty of Torturing Binyam Mohamed

Jim White correctly concludes "Barack Obama and Eric Holder now are required to act."

A decision of a British High Court certainly would qualify as "reasonable ground to believe" that CIDT [cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment] has occurred in the case of Binyam Mohamed and that it was at the hands of "United States authorities".

It's All They Know

I know you're not supposed to say that the American people are stupid, so I won't. but can we at least say they have been brainwashed to the point of being intellectually crippled?

Half of Americans (50%) believe government should do less to regulate business. The rest are divided between saying things are about right (23%) and that the government should regulate more (24%). The majority (57%) are worried that there will be too much government regulation of business.

That is an epic failure of liberal politics. You can't blame them, if nobody ever told them otherwise.

Sen Scott Brown and his GOP base: wrongly informed slightly unhinged

The majority that elected Sen. Scott Brown was comprised of his Republican base and in smaller numbers unaffiliated independents and Democrats. It did not take too many independents and Democrats to vote Republican in this bluest of blue states to elect a Republican as our junior senator. Who are these republicans and what do they believe? A poll came out today that questioned Republicans about their beliefs on a why variety of fact and opinion. The results are quite shocking.
