Health Care: What YOU Can Do
If you've been following the increasingly manipulated state of discussions on health care lately, you're probably — like some of the inhabitants of La Casa de Los Gatos — alternating between raging furiously and slumping-down-drunk depressed. (Awright all you "clean and sober" AA types, this is obviously not directed at you, and I don't even want to know about how you're dealing with it, OTAY?)
So today we looked around for something we could DO, because, you know, action is always, like, such a fucking terrific antidote to sitting around depressed (or raging manically, for that matter). And lo and behold! NYCEve, whom we've blogged about in the past as a terrific activist on health care issues, has joined forces with the brilliant Jane Hamsher of Firedoglake to Make Things Fucking Happen. Awright! Two powerhouse women, and they're taking names and preparing to kick some (Congresscritter) asses.
This is good. Ass-kicking is something we here at La Casa de Los Gatos indulge in frequently. OK, it's mostly virtual, verbal, and vituperative, but hey. When you only have one working leg, there's only so many ways to adequately boot booty.

So go sign the fucking petition already, and donate to the cause. Jane and Eve are doing the real work, and helping them out with money will make it a tad easier for them to do what they gotta do, on behalf of you, me, and all the others out there (76 per cent of your fellow-citizens, remember) who think the current state of health insurance sucks some seriously wet stinky monkey butt.
And then go read what Donald Sutherland (one of my favourite actors for his intelligence, articulateness, and clarity of thought) has to say about the issue. He's right, yaknow. Max Baucus needs to go, quite frankly. Primary the worthless piece of shit. Out with the fucking Blue Dogs, throw the whole lot of them into the deep end of the pool.
And then go join the Single Payer Voting Bloc.
And then, let Jon Stewart and Barney Frank make you laugh your fucking ass off:

SSSSSAH-NAP!!! Oh, Barney Frank, please gay-marry me, dude. You just rocketed to teh top of my Congresscritter Wiv Coolth list.
Srsly. This is the only way to treat these fucking jerkoffs. Rep. Frank is absolutely right. It's like trying to have an argument with a dining table, talking to them. They're not interested in hearing anything or learning anything, they have absorbed some worthless shit or other from some worthless piece of shit or other, committed it to memory, and swallowed it whole, without question or thought.
At least if she was from another planet, she would display signs of rudimentary intelligence — you know, enough to, for example, design and build something capable of getting her from there to here.
Sorry, Human Race. She's one of ours. Blech. Stumble It!
