Musings about politics, my day, my family and whatever else catches my fancy.
I am all with you on this Darlene, I wish that the sad passing of Ted Kennedy would energize the democratic party to push for the health care that is needed and stop trying to please the ignorant conservatives who do not understand, or are not willing to understand what is at stake. This is a terrible loss for the country as he was such a force in defending the middle class and the little guy, even if some of them don’t fully appreciate what he achieved for them.
Excellent points and examples you stress, Darlene. We surely will miss the bipartisan efforts he fostered.
*Vagabonde - If only the Blue Dogs could see it our way we wouldn't need the obstructionist Republicans to pass a good health care reform bill. Sometimes bi-partisanship isn't possible.*Joared - Even Teddy couldn't sway the Republicans this time. They are so intent on destroying Obama so they can win more Congressional seats next election.
Darlene-Excellent post. I wish I could be as free on my blog, and I live in "Kennedy Country". I am hoping against hope that they can get this done and do so with a public option.Keep it up!
Good post, kiddo! With people like you around maybe the torch isn't out :)Keep up the good work and posts!Together we stand.
Thank you for following Take This Tune. I look forward to you participating.NOw, may the Kennedy passing mean that health care of all passes.
*FBF - Thank you for visiting and for your nice comment. I hope you will return. I won't stop until the last gasp.*Looking To the Stars - Good point - together we stand.*Jamie - We will slough on to try to get it passed.Thank you for your visit; I hope you will return.
I really enjoyed hearing Teddy in that video Darlene...thanks for posting it. He will be missed....in many ways. I hope his hard word won't go for naught.
*Joy - Ted was so incredible that there will never be another like him. If only the Democrats will go it alone and pass a good bill it will honor all of his hard work. Ted fought for universal health care for 40 years and the Repubs say Obama is rushing it through. What a farce!!
This was such a good post, kiddo. I had to come back and read it again :)
Hi Darlene, something nice awaits you on my blog, passed on to me by D. in Devon here.. http://60goingon16.typepad.com/ I look forward to yours if you've the inclination. HugsP.
Ted Kennedy was living proof that we're all a mixture of good and bad.
I find it funny that they are now using his death as the excuse to vote no on health care refrom. They say well Kennedy was the only Dem willing to compromise to get this done and if he were here we could sit down and have an honest debate. He was here and had been pushing for this reform for most of his 40 years in the senate and with little or no help from the conservatives. He has voted already and it should be that bill that the dems get behind and make the RIGHT demonize this now passed American hero. Great post.
*Looking to the Stars - Thank you.*Lady Luz - Thank you. Rest assured I will stop by today. I' so excited!*Rinkly Rimes - Yes, no one is perfect and we all have made mistakes we regret.*Michael Chapman, R.N. - Thank you for your visit to my hodgepodge. I hope you will come back. It is ironic, isn't it, how the naysayers can twist things around. I think some religious conservatives would hate Jesus if he were preaching today. After all, his teachings were certainly more Democratic than the stance of the Repubs.
I came back to this post because I just read a new blog and the responses he got, from anonymous comments, were exactly like what you said – religious people without a clue. The blogger “Georgia Mountains and Beyond” was saying that two GA legislators want to introduce a bill to stop health care reform in Ga should it pass in Congress. Can you believe it? I am not surprised though since Georgia rated one of the worst states in education – there are so many ignorant masses in it. Take a look at this blog: http://georgiamountainsandbeyond.blogspot.com/. He also has a clip on Letterman that is good.
