Carrickfergus - Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem

Liam Clancy does this Irish song up proud and Tommy Makem provides an amusing coda. This is from their 1984 reunion tour when the lads were young and vibrant. (Don't wait for March 17th to hear it.)

Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) vs. Sick Arkansans

Senator Blanche Lincoln says her first loyalties are with the people of Arkansas NOT the insurance industry -- oh yeah? This short video splices Blanche with Arkansans at the free healthcare day -- I hope she sees it and that it inspires primary opposition her insensitivity deserves.

SARAH PALIN BOOK SIGNING - Interviews with Supporters

This is scary -- These folks in Columbus, Ohio, have drunk the koolaide and blindly follow Sarah Palin although they cannot articulate answers on her policies and positions. OMG deliver us from Sarah Palin and her supporters. (I lived in Ohio 14 years and fear for my family still living there.)

Senator Menendez for Health Care Reform and US!

On his Monday show, Thom Hartmann played an excerpt of NJ Senator Menendez speech for Healthcare reform which I found on YouTube. It contrasts the Party of NO with the party of the people that reaches for reform and progress. Let's hope Menendez and the American people win out against the healthcare industry and the Big Business lovers who prefer the status quo. We need a robust public option and so much more -- will we get anything of value after all are hard work for the 47 million uninsured and all those underinsured and weighed down by healthcare costs? Speak up NOW. Call/Write/Talk about it to our legislators, friends, newspapers, talk shows. Healthcare reform now.
