Three Sheets Survives Soju

14 Sep

Vodpod videos no longer available.

My wife – who has been a smart drinker and still a Korean since the first day I met here – reminds me to tell the world, that most Koreans drink slowly. The first lesson I learned was, that one should eat while drinking – one shot, one bite. But, don’t let the topic fool you, this is a high-quality production. My only quibble is, that Three Sheets host Zane Lamprey didn’t stray from Seoul and those damn northerners.!

The anger directed at Alabama Republican Senator Richard Shelby’s seemingly successful bid to divert Federal stimulus funds from commercial aeronautic development to the costly public development of a questionable stopgap program is bitter.

If Shelby disagrees with the Augustine Commission’s report and recommendation, uses political power to force Ares I into flight testing and production, and then crews are killed which fly on it, will be Senator Shelby be held accountable?

The Kernel of the Health Care Problem

20 Jun

Let’s be real about what kind of fight health care reform has become.

BILL MOYERS: Wait a minute. The folks who are fighting for single-payer out there say it is feasible if only Congress would look at the economics of it.

ROBERT REICH: Well, a lot of things are feasible if Congress looks at the economics of them. But politically, no, unfortunately and I’m a big single-payer fan. Unfortunately, we cannot get there from here because the political forces are just too strong against single-payer.
