Grayson EXPLODES on GOP: "America doesn't CARE about your feelings" Man On Fire!

Alan Grayson (BIG D-FL08) is my new hero, we need this guy in Congress for years to come!

But first, on to the show, and what a show it is!

Other than that, I have nothing else to say but this.


Teddy would be proud.

"We're Number 37!"

Here is a song celebrating our proud ranking in the World Health Organization's list of world health systems for all the obstructionist hecklers to sing as they continue down the road to total irrelevance. Enjoy!!

Catchy as hell! No 'Youth in Asia' LOL. Love the line about us being a Christian nation. Funny how the most God fearing/family values/protect marriage from the queers while I cheat on my wife/Conservative Christians are the main ones spreading lies, intimidation, carrying guns to town halls, and basically saying "I got mine so why should I care about anyone else". Not very Christian in my book.

Utah Phillips - There is Power In The Union

Happy Labor Day,

Joe Hill's famous song.

Sorry about that whole 40 hour work week thing. Oh, and I must apologize for minimum wage and keeping children out of the mines. I know you must hate getting a fair pay for a fair days work, but most of us go to bed every night thanking those who fought and sometimes died for the world's working people. Union men and women.

Why We Need Government-Run Universal Socialized Health Insurance

Every time I read about a Teabagger ranting about how socialized medicine will destroy this country I think of the VA system. There it is, a huge and vastly important universal healthcare system—government run, single payer and therefore socialist—right here in the brave and privatized United States: The Veterans Affairs hospitals. If you've served in the military, you can go to the VA. If it's within five years of your last active duty service, or you have injuries related to your service, you can go and get healthcare pretty much for free.

Objectively, our present system is a complete and abject failure. Compared to every other industrialized nation, we spend more and get less from our healthcare system. Even for those who claim that the US is exceptional, the VA provides an example of another (and better) way to do things.

Let's recap: the United States spends about twice as much on healthcare as any other developed nation in the world and in return receives just about the worst care. Can someone remind me again why there's even a debate about whether we should put up with this?

Political HumorSpinal Tap Performance

The right-wing fury at town hall meetings over health care and the Republican obstruction of any serious reform in Washington are not just symptoms of a complex debate on an issue packed with powerful special interests; it is a test of whether reality matters in the United States.

The overriding question has become whether the United States – as a representative democracy – is on the verge of losing its sanity.

Health Care Opponent Plays Hardball

This woman is a leader in the permanent accident or illness away from the street and she doesn't even know it! I bet she could tell you who won each season on American Idol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish Lawrence O'Donnell had asked this willfully ignorant moron if she favored repeal of her own right to vote too. After all, the Founding Fathers thought she should have no voice in the political system.

Awesome Wedding Dance Video

If there's one thing we need to end the week, it's a feel-good wedding stunt! And this viral church-aisle dance party should do the trick.

Even the normally hateful YouTube viewership was all over this, and a naysayer was shot down with, "Don't hate just because you can't get someone to look at you let alone marry you." Aww! The happy couple's already appeared on the Today show to contribute a little human interest, which isn't that unusual. But bringing the whole wedding party back tomorrow to do their "routine?" I'm guessing it won't capture the magic.

The war against organic and backyard gardens wages on by big agra who think it's simply irresponsible to not use chemicals and pesticides when growing food for your family. People will simultaneously grow obese and starve to death!

The Latin root "san" means cure, heal and take care of while "telli" is how the Brits refer to the electric living room lie box...So the proper name, 'Santelli", actually seems to mean 'person who will heal television'...Rick, a grateful nation would salute you but our hands are occupied performing dangerous, repetitive and low paid non union factory work.

Is it any wonder that Daily show viewers are more informed than those who get their news from mainstream media?

This land is your land. This land is my land. Again. Finally.

Bruce, Pete Seeger and Seeger's grandson sang one of the classics at the Lincoln Memorial today. Everyone sang along, including Obama:

Pete Seeger has been a courageous, tireless fighter for civil rights and peace all of his life. He was at Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" speech in that place.

Just look at his 89 year old SMILE. It tells the tale.
