holy crap!

sometimes i'm just amazed by politicians... namely politicians who happen to be overtaking the american government these days. does this not go against every fiber of your being? red, blue, black, white, whatever?

a new orleans bus driver with intestinal cancer is seeking to continue his chemo while he is in baton rouge awaiting his return home and to his job. because his job currently doesn't exist, his health care coverage runs out at the end of the month. since this is only one of many cases like this resulting from katrina, the senate is attempting to meet the need:

in the senate, a bipartisan bill would open medicaid - the federal program created to serve the needy - for tens of thousands of displaced people like wilson [the guy mentioned above] for up to 10 months. the bush administration opposes that, saying it would create a major new entitlement. (LATimes)

yeah... all i can say is "holy crap!"

Hey, interesting post! I've bookmarked your blog and will be reading it regularly.

By the way, did you hear today that Starbucks' long march into China has breached the Great Wall itself? Tourists will be able to drink cappuccino, frappuccino and other coffee concoctions at one of China's greatest cultural treasures after Starbucks announced it had opened a shop at Badaling. Amazing!

I have a new and used cars web site which you or your readers may find interesting. It pretty much covers new and used cars related stuff.

Keep up the nice work!
