Listening to NPR Madam Secretary Clinton speaking on the North Koreans and the ghost ship filled with Nuclear "goodies" for sale and the supposed tunnel that they are building into Burma how the desperate Lil Kim may be cash strapped so he is trying to drum up business with the walled in dictator of Burma as they prefer to call it Myanmar. It made me think that something has to be done over there. She, Madam Secretary said that she is in Thailand to help facilitate talks to encourage a cooperative strategy to quell the threat. She said she felt good about the direction they are going and progress was being made. It was so much hoo haw politico speak. I was for a brief moment missing Doofus Bush and his Texan straight talk. Look we have to do something. Lil Kim is shooting off rockets threatening nuclear war and bullying South Korea as he starves his people. We then have the Burmese gang holed up inside the huge walled fortress starving those people whilst they sit on a mountain of precious stones and apparently lots of cash What's to be done? Apparently not much...according to Madam secretary. It seems since we are in a pile of trouble here our influence has waned some over there.
I think Ang Suu Kyi is lucky to be alive and will never be free. They will probably murder her before she ever steps outside a free woman. I think South Korea will have to bomb Lil Kim and his Afro out of the water. Lets face it they have the biggest interest to oust the maniac. Provided China doesn't shore North Koreans up with military help,one never can tell which way China goes. Meanwhile we have health care which is limping it's way to some sort of resolution. Do we really believe those commercials against one pay or universal? People are you buying the fear factor and do you want to have big business in the doctors office with you? Change is that bad? It seems to all boil down to what is familiar and like the syndrome called "Stockholm" maybe we in America are too stupid and scared to try something new like Health care for all. Seems sad and scary to think that big insurance will once again stop America from getting something that should be a basic right...health care.
There is a ship out in the Pacific filled with Nuclear crap for sale. How come Japan or China are not stopping them? Why is it always us?
One gorgeous bit of good news I heard this morning made me smile. The horrid outdated piece of scrap metal called the F22 was halted. Someone in office is doing a good job. That was a tragedy just waiting to happen anything that can come down because of a few raindrops does not belong in the defense arsenal. 1.2 billions saved.
So lets take that money and put it into our Health care...we need it people, please say yes.
Vote universal coverage for all.
