A Podcast I Made

I Know, I Know

This is no way to run a blog. Sorry about that. Have been busy with my radio show, my music projects, etc. Trying to come up with a decent podcast, too - and trying to learn how to allow for the podcast I create to actually be heard on line. Will be back shortly.

Soda Tax - I'm All For It.

I'm hating the ads about the possible sales tax on sodas and "fruit" drinks. I'm very much in favor of taxing them. But I'm also in favor of using that tax to subsidize drinks that are actually healthy for you. It should not be cheaper to buy fizzy flavored corn syrup than it is to buy carrot juice. Have you priced carrot juice lately? Carrot Juice is one of the best things for you but for the price of a small bottle you can buy a six pack of crap. Or, even a 12 pack of the cheaper non name brand crap. This is one of the reasons America is in such poor health. It's expensive to eat healthy. It's expensive to drink healthy. It's expensive to get basic human nutrition.

Can we change it? Do we have the will? Where there's a will there's a way. Without a vision... the people perish. Literally.

There are Death Panels Now!

Democrats need to stress that we already HAVE "Death Panels" right now. Insurance Companies RIGHT NOW decide the fates of their "insured" people. They are RIGHT NOW deciding who will live, who will die. They are RIGHT NOW deciding on whether or not to pay for needed operations or not. This is what needs reformed. The ONLY way to reform the industry is to present it with a formidable OPTION, aka ALTERNATIVE that is not based on profit.

The other 'frame' of this health care reform issue, which Democrats are not stressing yet but should be, is that there's absolutely NO reason why America should be 38th in the world when it comes to health & longevity. France is #1 in the world. FRANCE? Republicans hate France! Dems should play into their irrational hatred. We should be BETTER than France and not so far down on the list that we are basically an irrelevant laughing stock.

What's the worse that can happen? Republicans, always more than willing to oppose the Democratic Party at the drop of a dime, start defending France? That'd be hilarious!

ACORN: Obama's Watergate?

Rightwing world is in a tizzy over ACORN, saying it could be Obama's Watergate. Seems to me, since most of them believe Watergate was simply a baseless liberal/Democratic Party hit job against Nixon, it'd probably be natural for them to think of ACORN as a Watergate type situation. They know in their heart of hearts there's nothing behind ACORN. They're just salivating over the idea that something, anything might chip away at Obama's popularity.

So when you hear them talking about how ACORN is Obama's Watergate, they are - whether they know it or not - admitting that the ACORN "scandal" is merely a trumped up, baseless hit job.
