Open line and Obama

Posted By on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 7:02 PM

Here's your thread.

UPDATE: Well? Public option on the table still, sorta, kinda, down the line. Kennedy invoked. Threat issued to call down the lying liars.

Personal note: A Repub congressmen from South Carolina, Rep. Joe Wilson, showed his rear by shouting that Obama was a liar when he said his plan wouldn't cover illegal aliens. Joe Wilson was a fraternity brother of mine at Washington and Lee University. Whatever his politics then (he was a Thurmond admirer), he was polite and soft-spoken. But that was 37 years ago.

I wish Obama had called him down more sternly. I sent a note, but it was hard because his site is being slammed. I told him I doubted Gen. Lee would have approved.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
