Yesterday's Leftovers

     A Christmas poem from 2009 on health care bill

Also Jay Cost  is back and making sense as he tries to make sure Republican enthusiasm stays whipped up.


SOPA Hearings Bad News for Internet Users

        The best look at the SOPA hearings so far comes from humorist Alexandra Petri in her The Nightmarish SOPA Hearings as she describes all the horrors of letting old men who rarely use let alone have any idea how it works legislate for an industry they don't really understand. Also chipping in with a good look at SOPA is SOPA Hearing Cast Debate as Old Media Against New Media which gets most of the facts you need to know to you in a business like way. Also provides a link to one of the best songs ever

All in all it is a scary idea that the old men in our congress are being convinced that something needs to be done about this when the First Amendment is more than enough to cover this area.
