Post Card From the Edge – Health Care Reform

You may have gathered from reading my posts (Thank you so much for coming back) that I listen to a lot of talk radio.  A recurring theme that I have noticed lately is when the host “goes to the phones” to talk to callers.  Many have been asking about what to do next.  They have attended protests, called their elected officials, they e-mail, they get frustrated.  A local host (Glen Meakem) made a suggestion recently that is a great idea.

Rush To Judgement

A while back I posted Divided We Fail, which outlined my theory that politicians want a divided country so they can “rule” with impunity.  I am sorry about the quotes, but I cannot bring myself to call what politicians do as ruling or leadership.  I have to use the quotation marks to signify my dirision at their efforts.

In the last few days and weeks, there seems to be another campaign, primarily by the President and his followers to provide a distraction.  The willing mainstream media made a big deal about how President Obama had a secret meeting with “leading” conservatives in the media.  Unfortunately, the meeting was not so secret and the meeting did not include the most conservative voices.
