PSA: why we need national health defense programmes

Hell Freezes Over: David Brooks Sounds Like A *GASP* Liberal!
Saying that Kapitalism Is Not Perfect!!!! That the GOP must given up ideological correctNeff for populism????
Can there be any doubt that Komrade Party Leader Brooks suffers from some Dangerous Space Alien Parasite that has grasped him by the brain stem!!!! For want of a National Health Defense Programme, poor, poor, poor innocent david is unable to get the special surgery that he needs! So do your part, contact your CongreeCritter and get them to support the National Health Defense Programme, so that innocent children like david brooks will no longer suffer the PERILS of space alien symbiots!

Who owns Political Language?

Yesterday, in what I still consider a Massive And Brutal Main Force Assault of Testosterone Poisoning, one of my dear friends raised the question of whether or not the Agile Programming Groupies could use 'scrum' in their Scrum Development languaging. It should be noted, earthlien, that the diagram in that wiki page seems to suggest that one can hold scrums every 24 hours if that were useful... What I think has also been called a 'daily stand up'.

A part of the discussion that remains operable, is when is it UGLY to co-opt language from one context, for the emotive symbolism. In a lot of places I feel that sports/war rhetoric really comes across as a BAD SATIRE from folks who are trying to use the emotive power of 'take one for the team' rhetoric, when there is no actual effort to be engaged in the process in any 'atheletic or military' manner. Ironically the fact that there is the 'chicken/pig' metaphores in play, I give the Agile folks that mad props for offering a way to deal with 'who is committed how much' in a way that can stand off from all of the flag waving horn blowing of the typical Chinese Human Wave approach to software development.

Death Marches, like bayonet charges, ultimately can have all of the Glam of War Like Activity, with all of the concomitant FiascoIsms.

So what I think I want to be attacking here is another manifestation of the 'argumentum ad hominem', in which all of the emotive language is HURLED 'at the man', in lieu of having any actual rational arguments to present...

In a strictly neoLiberal warmFuzzy frame work the idea of stripping the language of all emotion, so that it contained merely the semantically analysable, and falsifiable, and exportable - would offer one way to think about trying to purge the abuse of language.

But I think what I want to do is make sure folks being the correct emotions to play. The wit and giggliNeff of figuring out who be the chickens, and who are the pigs, offers an emotive, empathetic, approach to the process that i do not want to abandon for mere 'rantionalized propositions'. ( those of course have the big win of being the emotive manifestations of how black holes work... )

IslamoCryptoZionists Threaten White Christian America

Schneller: US demand for settlement freeze is 'extortion'
ZOG! ZOG! Everything is ZOG!!! Don't those Isreali's understand that just because we are pulling our troops out of the major cities, and allowing the Iraqi's a "national gay soverignty pride day", doesn't mean that we mean to give up our Corporate Welfare Settlements in IranqiStani, but that is different, since we are the True Christian Zionists, and Jesus gave us our Settlements.

Why the future tensing?

SadlyNo: Things that must be read to be believed

But since we have watched the american media attack journalists in the field. Is the future tensing here, that Ralph Peters offers, some majikal luxurious attack my the DOD on the Liberal Media Corporate Complexes CONUS??? And when they talk about strengthening the enemy, do they include the defeatists who voted to impeach Clinton as a part of the stabbing our troops in the back meme? Or were they limiting themselves to only the current crop of crazies who do not consider Obama an actual commander in chief in a time of transferring tax liabilities.

But we can trust the banking industry to correctly appraise the warrents they gave the taxPayers

Simon Says: We're Going to Need More Safeguards For Pricing Bank Shares Than 'Trust Us'
But they are big banks, they have smart people, and the Will of the Free Trade in FreeDome!!! so they know about this technical stuff!
Remember Komrades and NonPerKin, is Soviet Kommunist Maxim:
Trust, But Verify
so only Kommunist Red Pinko National Socialista Phallangest would question the backs, thus hurling doubts upon them, since everyone knew that they were all solvent....

So what is big problem with
A forensic examiner found that he had essentially been crucified; he died from asphyxiation after having been hung by his arms, in a hood, and suffering broken ribs.
Sometimes when bringing persons to Jesus these things happen.

Besides, it is not like we were expecting to get actionable intel out of them, we were merely holding them for no apparent reason at all...
