Am I the only one noticing a kind of trendlet towards companies looking to "inspire" legislation that causes people to become "customers" forcibly? Y'know, like any number of baby car seat laws that specify a certain kind/rating of seat, or the Massachusetts Miracle?

And, talk about shameless -- why am I not surprised that [Edwards would] try and make some political hay out of his wife's breast cancer? Of course, I recall that being one of your "hipper" diseases these days, along with Restless Leg Syndrome, Acid Reflux and UBS With Constipation:


TIPTON, Iowa - Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards said on Sunday that his universal health care proposal would require that Americans go to the doctor for preventive care.

...Edwards, who has been criticized by some for calling on Americans to be willing to give up their SUVs while driving one, acknowledged Sunday that he owns a Ford Escape hybrid SUV, purchased within the year, and a Chrysler Pacificia, which he said he has had for years.

" trendlet towards companies looking to "inspire" legislation that causes people to become "customers" forcibly?"

don't buy from one corp
u buy from another

unless the dollars by force spent
on required shit would otherwise
be voluntarily donated
to a worthy collection plate
----- imagine in search of a worthy collection plate
now there's a mission from hell----

sorry but i don't see the diff between profits going here or profits going there
either spot and the seekers will duly scoop em

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
