An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed landmark health care legislation Saturday night to expand coverage to tens of millions who lack it and place tough new restrictions on the insurance industry. Republican opposition was nearly unanimous.
The 220-215 vote cleared the way for the Senate to begin debate on the issue that has come to overshadow all others in Congress.

Too scared to recognize terrorism
Ignoring facts isn’t sensitive; it is suicidal
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan was declared “not a terrorist” before the facts were out – even before officials were sure whether the attacker was alive or dead. Failing to honestly name a terrorist attack despite the evidence is as destructive and dishonest as leaping to call an attack terrorism without the facts to support that.
Apparently, the claim was based largely on the fact that Maj. Hasan appears to have been a lone gunman. However, terrorism is defined not by the number of people involved, but by the motivations and intentions of the attacker. If reports about him are true, Maj. Hasan clearly was a terrorist.

The conservative group Tea Party Nation plans to hold a rally in Nashville today from 11 a.m. until about 1:30 p.m. at the east side of the Capitol building, voicing opposition to the scheduled health-care vote in Washington this weekend.
Speakers will include conservative talk show hosts and activists, said organizer Judson Phillips.
No elected officials or candidates are scheduled to speak, Phillips said.
The event is expected to draw participants from across the state, with several groups chartering buses to make the trip.
I wonder just how much of the story they cut? Since it’s a “Pink Slip Rally“, you’d think they would have mentioned that little tidbit. I’m fairly sure Judson wouldn’t have left that important info out.
It’s actually been moved across the street to the Capital steps.
The Mr and I were planning on going, but family issues came up and weren’t able. If you are in the vicinity, you’ve still got time to go and make your voice heard!
