And if you're not sickened that four days after the $700 billion bailout that was supposed to save the economy, they're asking for another bailout, here's something that is guaranteed both to shock and sicken. As reported in yesterday's New York Times, attached to the bailout was a major piece of socialist-type legislation that the left have been trying unsuccessfully to pass for 12 years. It's a law that requires employers and health plans to provide the same coverage for mental health problems as for physical, a law, the Times crows, that will "force sweeping changes in the workplace." The Congress did not debate the measure, and the the media did not tell us that such a radical piece of legislation was being pushed through along with the bailout, which was considered so immediately urgent that no further debate or delay could be allowed. ...Perhaps now liberals/Marxists can get the medical attention they so desperately need. Here is the NY times article. Devvy Kidd informs us that the new legislation has provisions for increased IRS snooping, new carbon tax credits, and even a bailout for Hollywood.
I think I understand what's going on here. The United States has given up fighting terrace directly. We have cleverly adopted the "small but crazy prisoner" strategy: act insane and everyone will be afraid to mess with you.
