The French Don’t Frack Anymore…

This from Thom Hartmann:

Got it? Why are we letting corporations buy politicians to promote Fracking? (Every governor candidate we interviewed on WSHC thinks they can control the safety of Fracking… and they are happy, it seems, to collect corporate money supporting the process.)

Picked this up from Art.com on Facebook…

Behold: Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” in bacon!

Instructables member and bacon-enthusiast, CopperTwist decided to take a porcine point of view on post-impressionism by recreating Vincent Van Gogh‘s, “The Starry Night” completely in bacon.

My Water’s On Fire Tonight – The Fracking Song…

I think I’ll play this on WSHC tomorrow morning.

I hope some of our Gubernatorial Primary candidates watch this and decide it’s better to come out against fracking than it is to accept corporate fracking money.

The Courts may shut down the Affordable Care Act leaving us healthcare deprived…

E. J. Dionne has a great column this morning: Will the Courts Wreck Health Care?

A quote from the column:

Ken Cuccinelli

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli made a revealing argument against the mandate. He kept referring to health insurance as a “private product.”

    There’s the rub. Health care is anything but a “private product.” The system is replete with cross-subsidies from hospitals, taxpayers and the already insured. There is no law requiring a car dealer to give you a new Lexus if you just walk onto the lot that compares to the statute requiring hospitals to treat you if you show up. We consider health care a largely public good, but we don’t pay for it that way. That’s foolish.
