ALL LINKS OPEN A NEW WINDOW!!!

Everybody load up bricks for This Snufagolpolis and guest crazies MARY CHENEY and MARSHA BLACKBURN while DEBBIE WASSEMAN SCHULTZ tries to hold her own against maximum crazies spewing every LIE about the recent health insurance give-away. You know, of course, that this billl CODIFIES health insurance industry practices into law and will FORCE you into one of the bogus health care insurance's "poliicies". Luke Mitchell explains at Harper's (subscription) Understanding Obamacare The story of capture is repeated again and again, in industry after industry, whether it is the agricultural combinations creating an impenetrable system of subsidies, or television and radio broadcasters monopolizing public airwaves for private profit, or the entire financial sector conjuring perilous fortunes from the legislative void. The real battle in Washington is seldom between conservatives and liberals or the right and the left or “red America” and “blue America.” It is nearly always a more local contest, over which politicians will enjoy the privilege of representing the interests of the rich. And so it is with health-care reform. RECAP: FOR PROFIT Medi-Pharma screws us for years and years and now when the SH1T hits the fan Congress gives their blessing to a RIGGED SYSTEM that benefits huge FOR-PROFIT conglomerates instead of PROVIDING HEALTH CARE FOR ALL. This is, in essence, another "capture" move for the for-profit health-care industry. Don't get us started on the next "capture" give-a-ways to the Nuclear Energy or "Clean Coal" industries. Meanwhile Face the Bob gets a matchup with uber-regessive JON KYL against CHUCK SCHUMER. FAKE NEWS gets DEBBBIE STABENOW fighting off regressives KIT BOND and ARLEN SPECTOR. Watch "The Cost of Dying" on 60 Min after football. Next DICK DURBIN, DIANNE FEINSTEIN, KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON and JOE LIEBERMAN engulf Meet the David to push forward this 'BI-PARTISANSHIPPY" bill on how good/bad it is. State of the King has an ALL DEM board selling this piece-o-crap with MICHAEL BENNTER (CO) JEANNE SHAHEEN (NH) & SHERROD BROWN (OH) (Sherrod we had such great "hope" for you). The Brick TeeVee Crew is busy rehabbing a rental suite (painting, cleaning and so forth) AND HIT DEADLINE so, for brevity we repeat last week's progressive stuff. Please support FSTV, PBC, GRITtv, MAX, ANTIWAR RADIO AND OUR REGULARS ANY WAY YOU CAN. NEW! BrickTeeVee welcomes BOB KINCAID from HEADON RADIO for his Wednesday Prayer Meetin'! Bob explains the fervor over tee-shirts from CafePress that advocate DEATH to The President now being sold on Cafe Press. Please give a listen and support HEADON RADIO! Happy Turkey Day!

Liberate the OPR Report h/t emptywheel at FDL: Remember the OPR Report–the one that was due done about 8 months ago? The one that showed how John Yoo’s bad lawyer contributed to torture? Whatever happened to that? The Alliance for Justice and Credo are doing a petition today to pressure Eric Holder to release the report. "For the past five years, while the facts have been concealed, questions about the responsibility of the lawyers who allowed torture have been debated in the court of public opinion while they should be settled in a court of law. Releasing the report is the first step in establishing accountability."Click through to sign the petition. SIGN NOW!
