I Had No Idea

Did you know that Michele Bachmann makes stuff up? Type me surprised.

It is really quite sobering what has happened. From 100% of our economy was private prior to September of 2008, but as of Tuesday, the federal government has now taken ownership or control of 51% of the private economy.
Honest to FSM, she is either really fucking stupid, or she is really just that craven. I am not sure which scares me the most.

More Things I Wish I Had Said

This time from Blue Girl:

Matt Yglesias has been calling it the Affordable Care Act all week, and that sounds good - make the republicans who swear they will repeal it if the American people give them back the majority run on repealing the Affordable Care Act. The Democrats couldn't ask for better optics when the election gets cranking this fall.

But in the end, I am a snarky blogger, and Joe Biden named it for us. If you think about it, it's obvious...

Teddy Roosevelt had the Square Deal.

FDR had the New Deal.

Obama gave us the Big Fucking Deal.

I really think the magnitude of the passing of the Affordable Care Act has yet to truly hit most Americans. Further, I believe a year from now most Republican politicians will be crying in their beers as the polls signal an even greater fall from power for the Greed Over People party.

The End Of Cancer

By way of Slashdot comes this amazing story:

The 70-nanometer attack bots--made with two polymers and a protein that attaches to the cancerous cell's surface--carry a piece of RNA called small-interfering RNA (siRNA), which deactivates the production of a protein, starving the malign cell to death. Once it has delivered its lethal blow, the nanoparticle breaks down into tiny pieces that get eliminated by the body in the urine.
The ex-nuclear power naval service member in me is cheering loud and often for this affirmation of the benefits of science. Of course, I await with bated breath the fundamentalist harpies screech about the End Of The World.

MB over at BBWW:

I think if someone had showed up with a laser pointer in the House gallery and pointed it at the wall, we could have distracted the entire Republican caucus throughout the entire debate.

Politics is the control of wealth and power. You are being conditioned to condemn politics as petty and boring, thus granting all the more control to the powers that be. You are either a part of the problem or a part of the solution. The choice is yours.
