Healthcare Myth Roundup

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

I have written an article about healthcare myths for some time — mostly because other people are doing it for me. Check out Sally Pipes, George Newman, Maggie’s Farm. Also, Dalmia points out the myths about Obama’s specific proposals.

That notorious right wing rag — the New Republic — scolds Obama over his response to the events in Honduras. I must say that I agree. People seem to placing the “will of the people” and “democratically elected leader” over the rule of law and the will of the legislature. It doesn’t matter how popular or democratic this asshole was — what he was doing was illegal. If George Bush had tried to keep himself in office after January, I would hope our military would have arrested his ass.

In the meantime, Obama continues to disappoint, now supporting a UN resolution in favor of Zelaya. Because there’s nothing the UN (and apparently now Obama) like more than an autocrat. Out of curiosity — is the UN condemning Iran?
