[links] Link salad contemplates the trainwreck of healthcare reform, thanks to MA politics

Dilbert has a difficult conversation — I have in times past had this exact conversation at work. Including the words in question. Language Log gives some analysis.

Scrivener's Error is in fully cry today — I draw your attention to the first item (FBI abuses of the PATRIOT Act — no one could possibly have predicted this!) and the last item (an interesting critique of interesting science fiction criticism).

More on the Christianist idiocy over military rifle scopes — Some Constitutional analysis, among other things.

Speaking of Christianists, more the history of the alleged Haitian pact with the devil cited by the toxic Pat Robertson

Uganda imports anti-gay bigotry from US — Christianism on the hoof, continually persecuting gay and lesbian people on a continent near you.

A Tiny Revolution says it all about the Massachusetts special election — I'll observe for my own part that if this stops healthcare reform, then the GOP strategy of "running out the clock", which they played all last year, will have paid off spectacularly. Meanwhile, the current "best in the world" system will continue to be an eventual death sentence for me personally, with pre-existing condition restrictions and lifetime coverage limitations. So to all my conservative friends opposed to HCR: pray like you've never prayed that you don't get cancer or some other expensive, chronic illness. Liberalism is a side effect of needing something more from society than you can personally give.

?otD: How would you feel about approaching a lifetime coverage limitation in your health insure coverage?
