And so it begins...

Congrats to The Vancouver Canucks on winning the Northwest Division Title, and a huge congrats to Henrik Sedin for being the first Canuck to win the Art Ross Trophy for most points in a season.

Way to pWn *both* Crosby AND Ovechkin, Hank!

Playoffs start Thursday against the L.A. Kings.

Well, shit...

I stand corrected in regards to President Obama.

Pell grants and a start on Health Care Reform in one week. There are some kicked Republican asses in DC tonight... all they can do is scream and stomp their feet.

I love it!

Oh, yeah, and remember that whole thing about joining the Green Party? I did... and they took my $35. Seriously, I never got anything from them and my emails went unanswered. Kinda funny, really. That party has a long way to go, apparently. lol.

Oh, well, it's for the best. No need to send money to a political party I guess.

Yeah, this pretty much sums it up, I think.

The Great Thing About the Health Care Law That Has Passed? It Will Save Republican Lives, Too (An Open Letter to Republicans from Michael Moore)

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

To My Fellow Citizens, the Republicans:

Thanks to last night's vote, that child of yours who has had asthma since birth will now be covered after suffering for her first nine years as an American child with a pre-existing condition.

Thanks to last night's vote, that 23-year-old of yours who will be hit one day by a drunk driver and spend six months recovering in the hospital will now not go bankrupt because you will be able to keep him on your insurance policy.

Thanks to last night's vote, after your cancer returns for the third time -- racking up another $200,000 in costs to keep you alive -- your insurance company will have to commit a criminal act if they even think of dropping you from their rolls.

Yes, my Republican friends, even though you have opposed this health care bill, we've made sure it is going to cover you, too, in your time of need. I know you're upset right now. I know you probably think that if you did get wiped out by an illness, or thrown out of your home because of a medical bankruptcy, that you would somehow pull yourself up by your bootstraps and survive. I know that's a comforting story to tell yourself, and if John Wayne were still alive I'm sure he could make that into a movie for you.

But the reality is that these health insurance companies have only one mission: To take as much money from you as they can -- and then work like demons to deny you whatever coverage and help they can should you get sick.

So, when you find yourself suddenly broadsided by a life-threatening illness someday, perhaps you'll thank those pinko-socialist, Canadian-loving Democrats and independents for what they did Sunday evening.

If it's any consolation, the thieves who run the health insurance companies will still get to deny coverage to adults with pre-existing conditions for the next four years. They'll also get to cap an individual's annual health care reimbursements for the next four years. And if they break the pre-existing ban that was passed last night, they'll only be fined $100 a day! And, the best part? The law will require all citizens who aren't poor or old to write a check to a private insurance company. It's truly a banner day for these corporations.

So don't feel too bad. We're a long way from universal health care. Over 15 million Americans will still be uncovered -- and that means about 15,000 will still lose their lives each year because they won't be able to afford to see a doctor or get an operation. But another 30,000 will live. I hope that's ok with you.

If you don't mind, we're now going to get busy trying to improve upon this bill so that all Americans are covered and so the grubby health insurance companies will be put out of business -- because when it comes to helping the sick, no one should ever be allowed to ask the question, "How much money can we save by making this poor bastard suffer?"

Please, my Republican friends, if you can, take a quiet moment away from your AM radio and cable news network this morning and be happy for your country. We're doing better. And we're doing it for you, too.

My Olympic torrent collection has filled 10 dvds already, with enough to prolly fill 2 more.

Holy frak, how did it get out of hand so quickly?
...and suddenly is hits me...

How in the hell am I ever going to enjoy another hockey game after seeing the one Sunday?

I suppose I'll get used to the NHL again, but still.

That was one fuck of a hockey game.

One hockey gold down, one to go!


Congrats to the Canadian Women's Team on their third Gold in a row!





Couldn't contain my inner nine year-old there for a minute.

Space travel is now within easy reach!

Apparently, you can get to Caprica City from the Granville skytrain station.

Who knew?

dude, srsly...

What the fuck is it with all the right-wing trolls on komotv.com?

I swear it's about 99% far-far-far-right wing douchebag over there.

Everytime there's a shooting, within 2 hours there are 1500 comments going "Gee, wonder waht [sic] color THEY was?" usually followed by some genocial statement about "givin the right people guns" and "puttin THEM" in there place".

I mean, what's this shit? http://www.komonews.com/news/national/82078252.html

Yeah, let's put Jesus on our rifle sights... that's not ironic or anything. :/
