The Google are coming and pondering the reform marathon…

The Google image is one of those scanner bar code things today.

It’s freakish!

Mmmhmm, a bitch suspects it is a code for the Cylons to get busy.

Pause…consider…continue.

Or maybe it is code for the Google to get busy…maybe there have been Cylon-esque Google-bots living among us just waiting for that scanner code looking thing to be posted on their homepage.

Mercy.

Anyhoo…

After a summer of trifling bullshit, it looks like the opinion polls on health care reform are finally settling down.

Yay.

A bitch would be bitter if this shit didn’t matter so damn much.

Even so, the country is still undecided. A bitch suspects this has a lot to do with the fact that most of the country hasn’t been listening to the facts on health care reform. Most of the masses have been wading through bullshit, so it may appear that the message isn’t being well received but in reality ‘tis the bullshit that’s being rejected.

Sigh.

All this really means is that the fight continues…and this bitch will be phone banking for a while.

So, if you happen to get a call from someone about how real reform includes women’s health care and women can not be worse off after health care reform than we are now it may be this bitch!

Or it may be one of the thousands of other people working hard on this issue.

Real reform is a marathon, not a mad dash…and we’ve got miles yet to go.

But a bitch believes we will get there…

…and hopes that the Cylon Google-bots haven’t gotten there first.

Blink.

I wish I could be as optimistic as you are. I just don't think that the general public will ever be able to see through the crap that's circulating. I *still* hear people talking about death panels and socialized medicine.

It's not Cylons. It's the first sign of The Borg. The Borg Queen is on the way.

Obama is the Locutus of our time. Be afraid... Be very afraid...

PS - We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

ABB,

This comment doesn't relate to the post, but I was wondering if you had any comments related to Mr. Lloyd Marcus. I have been reading a lot of stuff about him lately being so involved on the Right and claiming that there is no racism. Your thoughts?

Where can poorly informed people go to get the real story on what the new plan will entail?

Great question Anon!

There are several bills being worked on that will eventually be merged into one plan, so the answer to that is evolving. But I recommend folks look at the site below for a side-by-side comparison of the current bills...this is the clay from which the final reform will be crafted.

David..
Mr. Marcus is the latest misguided person of color to join the "if I say racism doesn't exist can I play on your kick ball team, PLEASE?!" crew.

Personally, I find little value in denying the existence of a wrong...

... a true patriot works to end the wrong and thus better society.

Thanks for the link to read about the healthcare proposals. I've ignored the death panels, socialism and related ignorance. I wasn't certain myself where the best comprehensive information was found.

Thanks for all you do...

The Google Cylons are right wing spybots that turn over everything said on liberal blogs to Rush Limbaugh Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck so they can deal with you when the NEW RIGHT ORDER is established.
Not really but it does make a good scary Halloween story
