In Stevie Williams Own Words

Tiger'll be the last guy I caddie for.

  1. Another one bit the dust--Gingrich, Sanford, Edwards, Kennedy (more than one of them!), too many "evangelical Christian" leaders to count, and on and on and on. Clinton was the only recent adulterer who landed on his feet. Even after looking the country in the eye and lying to us! What is it about Bubba? I still like the guy. I didn't agree with all of his policies, obviously, but I still have a positive attitude overall with his Presidency. You ought to post a blog entry about the charisma of Bubba. It makes no sense but it's for real.

  2. "Bubba, The Presidency That Could Have Been?" Why does it make no sense? You left out David Vitter, who landed back on his feet and probably will be re-elected. It's not that I care what candidates states elect, it's just the hypocrisy that really blows my mind. Of the bunch you mentioned, I think Gingrich was the worst. Leaving his wife while she was in the hospital - despicable. I think he's on wife what 3 or 4 now? Some moral values.

  3. What makes Gingrich so nauseating is that he is the darling of the right. Did you see his latest project "Rediscovering God in America"? I believe in forgiveness, but that doesn't include a public platform to carry the message of conservative values. Same thing with Bristol Palin going on tour to promote abstinence. Ridiculous.

  4. Once again, thanks for your comments Sheila, I enjoy the talk. Yesterday, at the other site where we post, I admit you got me with your 40-50 million uninsured quote being a small problem indeed. I commented right back at you, which I don't think you read or you would probably have commented right back at me. Someimtes after the 3rd or 4th comment here, you miss something I say, (like the one that I hoped your Father was doing well). I hope you read this one.

    Regarding the health care mess, I sum up your position as "No, it's the debt, stupid." Which I would probably come back at you, as I have done numerous times, "No, it's not doing anything about the health care mess, stupid." I don't see you as considering anything I say regarding this as germain because we still have the debt. (In fact, I find the remark, cold) If we can't get each other (me included) to address the other's concerns, then maybe we have nothing more to add about regarding the subject at this time.

    Again, I like your writing and appreciate your comments, but will in the future, refrain on commenting on your position, regarding health care, as it is diametrically opposite mine.

    That said, I didn't know Bristol has been on tour promoting abstinence, rediculous, indeed. I always thought of SP carrying HER child like a trophy from the plane, which always grated on me. In the last number of days, there has been a blistering criticism of her from the right, which I have not reported here. (Because in one point of your pointing out to me, that this is enough with Sarah. For today, anyway!) I have to admit that I find her exchanges with Swartzenagger interesting, though.

  5. To make the finer point, "I always thought of SP carrying HER child like a trophy from the plane, which always grated on me." because of her upfront criticism of the "left-wing" press as not being fair to her and she using her lovely child as a prop. Sorry, not well said above.

  6. The problem with the other forum is that in order to access ongoing threads attached to stories, letters, etc., one has to choose the "archive" button & hunt for the particular forum. Responding back & forth is laborious. I did respond to your healthcare comment, by the way. My comment began something like I don't advocate doing nothing, and then laying out a few ideas for healthcare insurance reform. You misunderstand my position. The debt issue is why I do not support a single payer program. There are steps to take to address the problems without constructing a massive new program. And my comment about the millions of uninsured isn't cold--we will ALL be uninsured when the economy collapses. That is my point.

  7. Well now I really hope you read this because I agree with you! Regarding dj what I sometimes do is either look my comments or the person whose comment I am interested in, and get back to the conversation that way. Kind of the same as yours. Thanks for your response. (dj) When I last checked, you hadn't, I will check again. Sorry for misunderstanding your position, I will try to think more broadly when reading -:) Only through dialogue...or something like that as the saying goes. I completely understand your position as to the single payer plan will cost (I assume you mean taxpayer monies and debt) and agree that not only is it a valid concern, it is in my feeling true. I agree that the biggest concern that I have now is that too little is being done to take the steps necessary, as you say, to address the problems and "bad practices" as I say regarding "delivery" of health care. As I have said, no one can question that the medical attention available in this country is second to none. I still don't see how one can say that delivering health care to 40-50 million people is a small problem indeed as not being cold, but totally agree that we will all be uninsured when the economy collapses, your thinking because the debt will bankrupt us, and my thinking that the cost of uninsured going to the ER for routine, albeit late care, will cause COSTS to become prohibitive. Thank you for pointing this out.
