But the "shout 'em down, shut it down" mentality of the baggers showing up to these meetings isn't conducive to that kind of talk from anyone. Instead we get hysterical (in every sense of the word) tales of mandatory sex changes, taxpaid abortions for trannies, and your grandmama and mine, out on the ice floe. Other than making alot of people laugh (which is good for the system, they say) and really stressing out others (the Glenn Beck crowd, mostly), this kinda talk isn't doing much for improving medical care.: DISSENTING JUSTICE: Fighting "Tyranny" in the Bible Belt


(Thought I'd try this "backstage pass" style, today... Rather than saving it all up till the end of the day, I'll update both the post itself and the "time posted," live, as it happens. It'll all look the same tomorrow, but be more timely, today...)

Not sure I liked it any better, and may've even liked it less. Tune in tomorrow, to see what I do...
