Rand Paul, Who Once Called Universal Healthcare ‘Slavery,’ Goes to Canada for Surgery

The Courier-Journal reported that Sen. Paul can expect to pay between $5,000 and $8,000 for the surgery. That’s significantly cheaper than what Paul would pay in the U.S., in which an inpatient hernia procedure costs more than $11,000 on average.

Trump-Kissing

People may be shocked to hear what The Donald has been saying recently.

“They want to start World War III over Syria. Give me a break,” Trump said at the State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City.

Obamacare’s going to be repealed and replaced. Obamacare is a disaster if you look at what’s going on with premiums where they’re up 40, 50, 55 percent,” replied Trump.

Is that even true? Anyone fact checking?

Trump continued, “I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now.

McLibel

DVD: McLibel

The McNightmare is Real

Two London activists go up against the global McMafia in what became the longest trial in British history.

This film should be taught in every grammar school — or at least junior high.

I was ecstatic when I first learned about this film, and I put it at the top of my queue. England has draconian libel laws and the balance is clearly skewed to the one with the bigger pocketbook. In this case the mismatch was so gratuitous and ridiculous, that even if you were a McDonald’s shareholder you’d have to be rooting for Dave and Helen by the end.

The hidden microphone conversations with the capos is hilarious. Some McHonchos flew over to try and force a settlement, while not actually agreeing to anything in exchange. The conversations are revealing of a corporate criminal mindset and disdain for the concept of free speech.

I’m not sure how anyone can eat at the open grease pit, which is the subject of the film, but people do. Perhaps if they saw this film, they wouldn’t.

McLibel’s got a third act, and a twist ending … and that’s all I’ll say.

Will Sicko spark a movement?

July 6, 2007

ALAN MAASS reports on the overwhelming response to Michael Moore’s Sicko–and the potential of a movement to win fundamental change.

Article originally appeared at socialistworker.org.

MICHAEL MOORE’S film Sicko has become a lightning rod for all the anger with the U.S. health care system–and activists who support radical health care reform were on hand to show tens of thousands of people who saw the film what they can do about it.

At sneak previews across the country last month (2007), the red carpet outside the theater wasn’t for preening and paparazzi, but picket lines.
