Aaahhhhhhhh

The weather broke. It is actually cool this evening. We are not sweltering. Hurray.

And because everyone else is posting it and talking about it, here is that great clip of Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank giving a righteous smack-down to some mouth-breathing idiot at a recent town meeting. If Designing Women's Virginia Sugarbaker were a snarky gay Congressman, she'd be Barney Frank. No shit.



I only wish I was that quick on my feet. Damn.

For the record, if you have the knowledge and tools to cure people of their suffering, you should do that.

If you withhold those tools and knowledge until you are paid exorbitant amounts of money, you should be prosecuted for extortion.

Period.

My opinion on health care. You got a different one? Write about it in your blog.

I love and adore Barney Frank! More Dem's need to speak up to these extreme rightwingers like he did. A Constructive debate with the extremist's is not possible.

Hope you are doing well, been awhile since I have been around the interntets. ;)

Amen. That goes for the legal profession, too.

What we really need is a gift economy so that those of us with skills can feed, clothe, shelter, and otherwise care for ourselves while freely giving said gifts.
