Why we need Obamacare

by TexDemAtty

Recently, I left a job with employer provided insurance to venture out on my own.  And the health insurance nightmare has shown why we need Obamacare.

Dick Morris can suck it

by TexDemAtty

Years ago I admired Dick Morris.  And now, well, over the squiggle of Morris' morals.

Health Insurance makes us Captives

by TexDemAtty

I have employer health insurance.  And it has made me a captive to a job I hate.  Our system of insurance ties us to jobs solely because our system mandates it.  More after the fold.

OT: What to name my son

by TexDemAtty

Ok, not overtly political diary.  I have a son on the way.  Looking for a name.  Ideally some sort of political and literary connection.  Been pounding my head on a wall, so I thought I would come for advice to those whose opinion I trust.  Anyone have any ideas?

UPDATE:  Thanks for all the suggestions everyone.  My fiancee and I discussed a number of the names today.  No decision yet, but we still have time.

Discuss

Thousands upon thousands of political analysts of all political stripes have and will analyze, pick apart, discuss, and argue about the debt deal.  And there will be thousands of divergent opinions.  Here's mine: we do not know what this deal will do.  No one does.  No one can.

Poll

Do you know, for certain, the effect of the debt deal?

Ok, that is it.  That is enough.  No more will I sit here I read them.  The GBCW diaries are just plain offensive to anyone who has ever written an actual GBCW letter or, more accurately, a suicide note.  Someone who has written an actual, goodbye letter or note to loved ones.  So, kindly, if you think the community needs to know why you are leaving and want to cast it as GBCW, please STFU.  Too many people write real GBCW letters every day, and the "bye DailyKos" diaries here just diminish those.

No threats of violence

by TexDemAtty

I have read many a diary and/or comment that, on one level or another, amounted to a call to violence.

It is never appropriate to advocate violence.  Never.

This may make me a bastard

I seem like a bastard.  I may be a bastard.  Fair enough, YMMV.  But, this is what I think of Libya.

MoJo question

by TexDemAtty

I am wondering about the new MoJo system.  And I doubt I am the only one.  So, follow me to the depths below the fold to my question.

OK, good god, really?

by TexDemAtty

I, like many, have been following the Wisconsin (revolt? situation? protest?) with great interest. And watching how the similar states (FL, OH, etc.) are treading in light of the same.  And, I am simply incredulous.

What I have to ask is how anyone could support the Republican position?  I mean, ok, good god, really?

What the Hell are the republican leaders thinking?

Walker must lose

by TexDemAtty

This idea has been touched upon (or discussed) in various other diaries.  That said, a central post is a good idea.  To asses other discussion here are these diaries can be read via: http://www.dailykos.com/...

I highly recommend you do so.  And then post below.
