      Good Morning!! The snowpocalypse never materialized in Boston, after we were told to expect up to 14 inches of the white stuff. I know it was bad in some places to the south of us. But not to worry, there’s another snow event coming this weekend. Meteorologist David Epstein explains: I can tell you with […]

    • Tuesday Reads: Spring Has Sprung, Bringing More Snow to the Northeast March 20, 2018
      Good Afternoon!! It’s the first day of Spring, but there’s no Spring weather for my neck of the woods. Happy spring! A fourth nor’easter this month will be landing Wednesday across Southern New England, testing the limits of the Massachusetts psyche when it dumps up to 12-14 inches of snow across the state. Forecasters offered storms […]

      Good Morning Sky Dancers! There were many things to admire about Muhammed Ali. He was tenacious, strategic, clever, and principled.  His invention of the ‘Rope a Dope ‘was tactical brilliance.  A boxer will pretend to be trapped against the ropes but what said boxer is actually doing is  “goading the opponent to throw tiring ineffective punches”. Can […] […]

      Good Morning!! Happy St. Patrick’s Day to those who celebrate it. Judging by his surname, Andrew McCabe is probably part Irish, but he’s most likely spending the day preparing to defend himself against the wannabe tin-pot dictator we’re stuck with thanks to Vladimir Putin and millions of ignorant white people who get their “information” from […]

      Good Afternoon Sky Dancers! Two stories have been haunting me and both deal with Russian Attacks on the West. The first is the ongoing murder and poisonings of folks who have crossed Putin.

Booooo: First Day of February News

The biggest news items this week: I bought a Macbook. Also, Little Isis got a Macbook.  Every time I feel sad or irritated I just look at it or open it and suddenly it all gets better…

Anyway, the other news is that Obama’s shitty Health Care Law was declared unconstitutional.

In ruling against President Obama‘s health care law, federal Judge Roger Vinson used Mr. Obama‘s own position from the 2008 campaign against him, when the then-Illinois senator argued there were other ways to achieve reform short of requiring every American to purchase insurance.

“I note that in 2008, then-Senator Obama supported a health care reform proposal that did not include an individual mandate because he was at that time strongly opposed to the idea, stating that, ‘If a mandate was the solution, we can try that to solve homelessness by mandating everybody to buy a house,’” Judge Vinson wrote in a footnote toward the end of his 78-page ruling Monday.

John Smart is going to have a guest on his show tonight to discuss how this turn of events on Obamacare will affect all of us. Tune in at 6pm pacific (9pm eastern).

Personally, I can’t say I’m unhappy about this. You will remember my reaction when it passed.

All this change! All this hope! I can’t take it! I’m going to spontaneously combust!

The world is going insane, and while normally I like insanity, this is not the good kind. Obama has just passed national RomneyObamacare–a Nixon wet dream originating from the Heritage Foundation in the 1990s in opposition to Hillarycare, and yet lunatic “Tea Partiers” are running around vandalizing the houses of Congressidiots who voted for the heaping pile of shit, screaming that they are “socialists?”

Obama signs an executive order restricting women’s access to abortion, and so called “progressives” and “feminists” are having kool aid induced orgasms as they compare the passage of a Health Insurance Reform Bill that would be better served as toilet paper to the Civil Rights Act? What the fuck?

Well, maybe I’m being unfair. The Bill IS Historic. Historically shitty.

So now what happens? I say we start from scratch. There was nothing progressive about this bill, so this time we don’t just put the public option on the table, we make it the main course. More on this as the story develops and who knows what’s going to happen, but either way, it’s a blow for the Obama Administration, his Health Care Law being his only one of his signature historical accomplishments of historicalness.

Everyone should be keeping a close eye on the Middle East this week too.  Huffington Post has the latest updates:

oday 9:47 AM Sen. John Kerry Calls For Mubarak To Step Down

Writing in the New York Times today, Sen. John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called on Mubarak to step aside. He wrote:

It is not enough for President Mubarak to pledge “fair” elections, as he did on Saturday. The most important step that he can take is to address his nation and declare that neither he nor the son he has been positioning as his successor will run in the presidential election this year. Egyptians have moved beyond his regime, and the best way to avoid unrest turning into upheaval is for President Mubarak to take himself and his family out of the equation.

You can read the entire piece here. Last weekend, Kerry said, “President Mubarak has the opportunity to quell the unrest by guaranteeing that a free and open democratic process will be in place when the time comes to choose the country’s next leader later this year.”

Wonk also has the latest updates at her place, with her wonky self.
