This is a very interesting and slightly depressing take on what the problem with healthcare is. I have always been a little skeptical about southern society, I have always felt the south's hospitality is double speak. The numbers about tax distribution make me a bit sick. I think it is too drastic, but I wonder if proposed how southerners would feel.
A scary quote I hope is not true.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, maybe the thing about Barack Obama that offends the red states most is neither that he is black, nor that he is somehow socialist pink, but that he is very, very "blue" -- a liberal college professor with a foreign-sounding name and lots of overseas fans. According to one poll, nearly half of southerners question whether he can really be the legitimate president.
My aunt just sent a few photos my way from my mom's trip up north. Here are some pics of Aunts and Uncles, one with cousins. The occasion was for my Uncle John's induction into his High School Hall of Fame.
