Attorney General Considers Outside Counsel To Investigate Torture

Please listen to this excellent piece by Rachel Maddow about torture and President Obama's hesitancy to prosecute it. If we are going to restore America's integrity, we must follow the law. Like it or not, President Obama, we must look back so we can look forward to a better future. See this and call the White House 202-456-1111.

We Should Be Able to Use Waterboarding? Senator Lieberman!

Lieberman lacks ethics and information if he believes that waterboarding isn't really torture and can work. When I see such interviews I gain some solace for Senator Al Gore's having had his presidential election stolen. We would have had Lieberman a heartbeat away from the presidency!!

Sen.Sanders: Private Health Care Companies are NOT about Supplying Healthcare

Senator Bernie Sanders has this right. Insurance companies are about profit, not healthcare. They deny needed services and put road blocks in the way of those they purport to serve. We must get the profit motive out of healthcare. Make a living, yes, but not a killing!
"The function of healthcare is not to make insurance companies rich. It's to provide the best quality healthcare at the lowest possible price to all of our people." -- Senator Bernie Sanders, on Thom Hartmann, 03/27/09
