Busy

So it turns out that full-time work, caring for three children, training for a marathon in February and the holiday season have combined to keep me away from writing.  On the plus side, I finally added an email subscription button on the bottom right so you can not receive emails of the posts I’m not writing.  In case you’re curious on my thoughts on the world, here goes. 

Some kind of health care reform needs to happen even if it’s not perfect.  If we expand coverage now, it will create momentum to further expand coverage in future.  People forget, but civil rights legislation happened in a similar fashion.  The trick will be to do this without turning it into a give away to the big healthcare and pharma companies.

The controversy over the hacked climate change emails is a bullshit controversy.  The denialists picked off thousands of private emails between scientists (illegally I might add, but no one seems to care about that) and have been cherry-picking the ones that look the worst when taken out of context.  There is no fraud, there is no cover up.  The reality is this, there is a lot of money being poured into the denialist camp by large corporations with a vested interest in derailing climate change driven regulation.  That is what is driving this discussion.

Tiger Woods is a loser who happens to be awesome at golf. 

Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale is awesome.

So is this fight scene.

The politicians in Uganda who are trying to make homosexuality punishable by death are subhuman pieces of excrement.  So is their buddy, Rick Warren, who has close ties to the Ugandan ministers promoting the bill and initially refused to condemn it until called on his bullshit by Rachel Maddow.  You want a purpose driven life Rick Warren?  How about you stop being a homophobic douchebag?  That sounds like a great purpose to me.  While you’re at it, how about you stop encouraging you followers to emulate the Hitler Youth?  You’re killing Godwin’s Law.

It’s unlikely I’ll post anything before Christmas so have a Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year.
