I could not agree more with your assertions ^
This also gives the sheeple time to learn the truth.
I am assuming this is a reference from Micheal Savage? I listen to the good doctor any time the opportunity presents itself.
I'm just in an optomistic mood right now. We're still in deep trouble, and this mood will pass. I agree we are in deep trouble, but the current events and the light being shone on the creatures gives me great hope, and I don't know about this mood passing away. I don't recall who said it on the radio today, but they made mention of the politicians this time waking a sleeping giant.

Obscene profits? Who are you to decide this? I don't like the salaries pro athletes get but I would not be in favor of limiting or taxing them more. We are after all a free market economy. And what do you rake in? What if someone making 10K thinks your income is obscene and a group of politicians agree and say let's limit or take away ol' Mono's income?
I think if the libs want to limit income we start with theirs. pelosi, feinstein, reid, durbin, kennedy.............they forfiet their income first.......and i might give the thought a nano-second of my time.
Concerning the health care / mandatory end of life counseling:
I found 2 contradictory links so I am downloading the bill. Give me some time and I will try to provide a definitive answer.
