Get Your Dunkin Monday

Oh Monday why are you here already? It was a pretty chill and awesome weekend for the lady and I we enjoyed one too many a margarita in the city. We celebrated a friends birthday, we rocked out some mean dishes in the kitchen and did like one million sit ups. Okay scratch that last part, but we were close. It is a short week wit the upcoming holiday. Can we say Thanksgiving? Or is there a war on that too? I am looking forward to it as nothing sounds better right now than stuffing and turkey with some gravy. Yummmmmyyy!

Here are your highlights:

Senate votes to begin debate Health Care Reform, but what is bothering is no one in the media is asking tough questions of the Senators who intend to block the public option. It would be nice to know the "why."

I'm not sure what to make of it. Michelle Malkin (and others) are suggesting the trials of 9/11 and Gitmo detainees would turn into a "platform to bash America." Does she think they are going in front of Judge Judy?

For your Christmas tree, Controllerments

Sen. Lamar Alexander makes the Republican argument against Medicaid, "it's ghetto".

Christian leaders unite on political issues, conservative Christian, Catholic and Evangelical church leaders and banding together to protest against abortion, stem cell research and same-sex marriages. The return of the Christian Right is a very real concern, it used to have direct access to George W's administration , (who often referenced a divine purpose) now they want it back and they have the means to put pressure on the current administration. But what I don't understand is how and why they are threatening to cut off the poor, if they don't get what they doesn't sit right. Are the three pressing issues of our time abortion, stem cell research and same-sex marriage? Fighting teh gay is more important than poverty, and providing social services? Disheartening.
