Big Dan's Big News Aug 18, 2009

If the public option for health care folds, it's the Democrats' fault (with a hat-tip to the GOP), and it's even possibly on purpose: they have the majority to do it! Are you watching the "two faces of the same party", as they say? Democrats & Republicans? Right before your eyes, in Real Time? Both parties representing the wealthy, corporations, and the military industrial complex...AND NOT US???

The Republicans are a lost cause, but Democrats were voted in by America for single payer or at least the public option. The Democrats & Republicans: BAD & WORSE!!!

As the corporate media misdirects focus on brown shirt-like disruptions at the town halls, the real "death panels" --- the corporate profiteers and their bought-and-paid-for politicians --- hammered out a pseudo-reform package that will perpetuate a corrupt, dysfunctional and deadly health care system which kills more than 18,000 Americans each year simply because they can't afford coverage and countless more when carriers refuse to authorize vital, life-saving procedures...

“You Do Not Cut Deals with the System that Has to Be Replaced”: Ralph Nader on Secret White House Agreements with the Drug Industry, August 14...NOT ON THE LIBERAL MEDIA!!!

Wing-Nut Mobs Provide Cover for Obama/Baucus Health Care Betrayal. Must-see video of Ralph Nader's spot-on analysis...

The Obama administration admitted last week it promised to oppose proposals to let the government negotiate drug prices and extract additional savings from drug companies. In return, drug companies reportedly pledged to reduce costs by up to $80 billion. The White House has tried to back off the reported agreements, but the drug industry says it expects the White House to uphold its pledge. We speak to former presidential candidate and longtime consumer advocate Ralph Nader.

Strong Turnout, No Shouting at Vermont Town Meetings on Health Care (VIDEO)

Where are all the anti-war/anti-torture protesters you ask? NOT on the corporate-controlled "news" (the so-called "liberal media"), and they're being arrested. They won't even cover the arrests, because it would bring attention to the protests! ...but rightwingers can bring guns to Obama Town Hall meetings, and they get all the TV coverage in the world: In California four anti-torture activists were arrested at the University of California, Berkeley during a protest calling for the school to fire former Justice Department attorney John Yoo. Shouting “war criminal” protesters confronted Yoo as he entered a classroom Monday at UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law. Yoo is teaching a course this semester on civil law.

You're a "patriot", if you bring a gun to an Obama protest. You're "arrested" when you peacefully protest someone from the Bush administration...STILL!!!

So, you still get arrested for protesting someone from the Bush administration, but you can bring automatic weapons and guns to Obama Town Hall protests! Maybe the Yoo protesters should bring guns, and they won't be arrested! Could you imagine, if people brought guns and automatic weapons to Bush protests during the Bush administration years? WTF???

2. NOT on TV: Four John Yoo (Bush administration torture lawyer) protesters WITHOUT GUNS arrested!

This is truly amazing and a sign of the times about the "liberal media" (that's not liberal): after being covered by all the major networks, internet news site "The Daily Beast" digs deeper into a Florida double murder and connects it to the Mexican Mafia as an execution-style double-murder...AFTER the major "news" networks drop it after covering it as a simple/random murder!!! The death of TV investigative journalism is being proven over and over and over again. An internet news site acts like real journalists and outs the real story: it was a contract hit!!!

Investigators have linked Mexican organized crime to the murders of the parents of 17, reveals Rick Outzen, perhaps answering the case's riddle: Why was a Florida couple shot at home execution-style?
