Conservative Values

Let me be one of the first to condemn the actions and reactions of some on the right to the passage of the healthcare reform act(s).  The shattering of windows and threats of violence against anyone involved (especially the President) are acts of treason against this country and the conservative movement.  Those actions do much more harm than good.  Stop it!  You get no support, only scorn, from the vast majority of republicans, libertarians, and conservatives.  Grow up.

When a poker tourney gets raided, the players hope it is the police.

That has never been more clearly illustrated than at the EPT Germany.  Check this article by MSNBC:

Robbers made off with the prize pool of over a million dollars.  I’m sure my friends in the poker media are already far ahead of me and MSNBC already. 

When the raid happens, if the raiders are the police, the players usually face loss of the money in the game and a ticket.  If the raiders are robbers, people can be killed.  I’d take the police every time.

US Gov’t Poisoned Citizens?

I found this story very interesting in light of the current debate over health care in this US.

Zealots of every stripe are very dangerous.
