I know the final bill hasn’t passed but I guarantee the Democrats and Obama will get something passed before the end of the month. There are enough Democrats in the House and Senate that they will pass something. They must pass it soon or their constituents might remember how much they screwed us come election […]
Do endorsements by athletes or famous people really improve sales? Tiger’s recent revelations may provide the proof. There is no doubt; Tiger Woods is/was one of the highest paid celebrities for his endorsements. The immediate cancelation of his endorsements should give a very good benchmark to the marketers whether endorsements still pay. I don’t really […]

An open letter to the Tea Party Movement
A favorite axiom in D.C. is the process of law making is like making sausage, not very pretty. During the discussion of Senator Mary Landrieu’s $300 million bribe, one Democrat’s defending her prostitution said, “That’s just the way laws are made.

Senator Mary Landrieu hasn’t said she would vote for the healthcare bill yet, so will she yield to the temptation of $100,000,000 bribe to her state (LA)?

I’m sure the final bill will include a provision (as is included in almost all legal documents) that if any part of the document is found to be illegal or unconstitutional, only that part of the document will be null and void (or some similar legal speak .) That would mean all the rest of the bill would be in force. What would that do to the bill, whether it has a public option or not?
Yes, healthcare needs a tune-up, not a replacement or complete overhaul. Thank God, It looks like the monstrosity they are calling healthcare reform is not going to pass, but it is a shame also. If Congress had just a bit of common sense, they could ‘tune-up’ healthcare and make it affordable to everyone without bankrupting the country!
