I will actually give you a speech made up entirely--almost at the spur of the moment, of what a candidate for president would say if that candidate did not care about becoming president.
In other words, this is what the truth is, and a candidate will never say, but what candidates should say if we were in a kind of democracy where citizens were honored in terms of their practice of citizenship, and they were educated in terms of what the issues were, and they could separate myth from reality in terms of what candidates would tell them:
"Thank you so much for coming this afternoon. I'm so glad to see you, and I would like to be president.
Let me tell you a few things on health care.
Look, we have the only health-care system in the world that is designed to avoid sick people. [laughter] That's true, and what I'm going to do is I am going to try to reorganize it to be more amenable to treating sick people.
But that means you--particularly you young people, particularly you young, healthy people--you're going to have to pay more. [applause] Thank you.
"And by the way, we are going to have to--if you're very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It's too expensive, so we're going to let you die. [applause]
"Also, I'm going to use the bargaining leverage of the federal government in terms of Medicare, Medicaid--we already have a lot of bargaining leverage--to force drug companies and insurance companies and medical suppliers to reduce their costs.
But that means less innovation, and that means less new products and less new drugs on the market, which means you are probably not going to live that much longer than your parents. [applause]
Thank you."


Formerly Feckless Republicans learning to sell sex on a troop train.

First of all, some of you people need to stop yelling at me.

Especially the few of you thin skinned, unforgiving, left wing twits with the well earned inferiority complexes, ... ... ... ... ... ... and my telephone number.

You know who you are !!!

You have my word of honor that I will restore all the former examples of Republican fecklessness from the old site in their entirety ...... plus.

This transfer has been a big job, and no, I'm not deliberately attacking Democrats and promoting Republicans in and effort to personally destroy Barack Obama, his administration, family and anyone else he ever had a fond thought for.

You know me well enough to know, that my contempt for the political class is universal.

I simply reposted on those Silly Little Democrats first.

  They are in power after all.

As for the changed title, it is my strongly held opinion that the Republicans have found a little feck.

Which of course makes them Fecking Republicans.

I did it because you would have anyway.
