Hello, Thom!
Concerning bioethics, I would like to suggest that you interview Lori B Andrews, author of The Clone Age. She is a paternity lawyer who deals with a lot of invitro cases, as well as cases which concerning the copyrighting of genetic codes. In her book, she outlines how invitro fertilization has been controlled by the wealthy, right wing anglo-saxons, while receiving subsidies to pay for related birth defects and "Frankenstein" science.

I suggested on Face Book , that the Teabagger movement should go for broke on the gimmicks. Sarah Palin should wear a cape and tights, along with her acolytes, and they could act like superheros, with the battle cry being "Teabaggers Assemble", or "Look, a Liberal...Tag 'em and bag 'em!"

As far as human rights, we need to demand that Siegelman be set free, and this should be put to the teabaggers to prove his guilt.

Also, in regards to human rights, we now have missionairies who are being held on bogus charges in a Haiti prison. We should demand US intervention and call for their immediate release. The parents of the children involved, made claims that they willingly offered their children to the missionairies, yet the Haitian government is holding them on human trafficking charges. We should stop all support to Haiti, pending release of the missionairies.

"We have always known that self-interest was bad morals; we now know that it is bad economics." ~President Franklin D. Roosevelt

In regards to Terri Carlson...Is she hot?

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

The problem with her method is that there is no guarantee that anyone will have insurance for long, under our current system which requires us to pay what the insurance companies tell us to, without oversight.

Will Democrats Filibuster Neil Gorsuch?

After months of talking about "resistance", Senate Democrats finally appear to be putting their money where their mouth is.

After days of testimony, Senate Democrats have seen enough of Neil Gorsuch - enough to know that they're going to try to filibuster him.

Chuck Schumer made that very clear during a speech yesterday on the senate floor.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
