    Someone put it on YouTube (ergo, no ads!).

    Link to Hubris: Selling the Iraq War [44:11]

    Thanks for the three Michael Moore videos.  Loved his Reid impersonation.  I hope ol' Harry saw it.  Or comedians who can imitate that and ridicule him into doing something!

    The only time Obama and the Congress Critters have shown they have any kind of a backbone is standing up to us over health insurance.  They all flat out lied to us and said they didn't have the votes.  Of course they didn't.  Insurance, Medical, and Prescription Corporations bought their votes for a profit-making insurance program that will still screw us over.

    As I understood the polls, the majority of people wanted a not-for-profit single-payer system [like buying into Medicare would accomplish; seniors and disabled people who qualify for Medicare continue to pay Medicare premiums because they're deducted from SSI/SSDI checks before the remainder is deposited in our accounts].  BTW, buying into Medicare would have meant hiring more people right here in the US to handle the extra paperwork.  That many people making a salary would have had an instant impact on the economy..., and taxes.

    "Force" Obama or the Congress Critters to do something?  Yeeeeeeaaaaah.... riiiiiiiiight....

    If they're moral and ethical people, they should be adults who can just "do what's right" automatically without even thinking about it, without being forced or coerced into doing what's best for everyone.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor

      I was looking for that last nite,

      and was going to link to it.

      But couldn't find anything more than a trailer.

      appreciate it.  

      Hubris should be required viewing for any GOP-leaning Deficit Police.

      which means that he doesn't dare upset the gun nuts back home, or he will lose his Senate seat. I think this is also why he caved on the filibuster -- filibuster reform had to die because of the gun legislation that would pass the Senate.

      •  kind of looks like (5+ / 0-)

        he'd rather protect his "seat"

        than protect the children of America.


        As Moore put it:

        And the question I asked Harry Reid; I tweeted him the other night. I said Harry, just so we can save some time, just give me a number. How many kids is [is it going to] take to be massacred before you're going to stand up and fight for what the majority of the people want?

        Just give me a number. 50 more kids? 500? Whatever the number is, just tell me how dead, massacred, dismembered children will it take? Because I know there's a number where you, and everybody else, are going to go that's it. Game over. "NRA, Out! This is our country!" it's going to happen. I wish would happen now.
