Don't worry about Ted Cruz ever becoming your president. Just look at him. He was the kind of kid who got jammed into his locker over and over, and was voted "biggest brown-noser" in his high school yearbook. Yesterday and today, he was brown-nosing the Tea Party idiots with his idiotically long speech that was not a "Mr. Smith" filibuster.
Personally, I'm not really sure the ACA will work. The probable premiums released by the exec today seem kind of high to me. Really, we need single payer — and Obama, as we've observed, is not on board.
How happy I am with Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff! She basically ripped Our President a new asshole.
I recently finished Mark Leibovich's "This Town," a book that helps you understand how it doesn't much matter who allegedly is "in control," but how the "Club" remains in control no matter what you think.
I guess the NSA will have to find ways to invade our privacy without leaving tracks. Fuck them all. Fuck the NSA, fuck Obama, and viva Dilma!
As you know, I couldn't care less whether or not Iran gets the bomb. Being of a certain age, I tend to believe in MAD (mutually assured destruction). If the Iranians are willing to limit their nuclear enrichment programs to ease the US led sanctions that are destroying their economy and their currency, that's fine too, of course.
US officials like to say that "humanitarian" goods like medicines are not blocked, but that's actually not true. Since Iran has little or no access to foreign currencies now, it is unable to buy such goods abroad.
