Let's play Welfare Mad Libs!

Give it a go:

There's still a deeply ingrained culture of entitlement preposition plural noun. It's a mindset plural noun will have to work harder at changing as they come to grips with their failures, and as they face more scrutiny after accepting government help.

If you're stuck in Reaganomics/Third Way/Compassionate Conservatism/Post-partisan thinking, you might have answered "among," "welfare recipients," and "those who prefer leisure over work."

But now, some are finally starting to understand who are the really "entitled" people in America, the ultimate welfare kings and queens:

There's still a deeply ingrained culture of entitlement at financial companies. It's a mindset banks will have to work harder at changing as they come to grips with their failures, and as they face more scrutiny after accepting government help.

With apologies to the people who make the real Mad Libs.

the FL tasering of the student taught the public, whether people knew it or not. They said, perhaps subconsciously, I'd be more careful than that dude, even if they thought he "deserved" what he got. And, with the first thought, the powers that be got you where they want you. Cowed, thinking once, twice, three times before acting in any way which might attract the might and terror of the state.

The indiscriminate use of power is being used over and over to reinforce the fear of the State.

Bill Moyer's Journal had a great show on Friday, and in the second segment, one of the women, (not positive, but think it is Patricia Williams in light tan--unless the woman in tan is Melissa Harrris-Lacewell...) was talking about the Founding Fathers' putting in the Constitution the right to not testify against oneself and pointed out that "torture" comes from the Latin "to twist"; in other words, to maltreat the person's body to make them say whatever the torturer wants them to say. This is an extension of Habeas Corpus, which required the State to account for any persons--their bodies--it took into its custody. Made the basis for the Bill of Rights and Habeas very concrete and graphic.

Our Founding Fathers were very aware of what the State could do to persons in its custody and how it could make them testify against themselves and others. BushCo felt those were powers it wanted for itself and acted on that desire.

As always, rebrooadcast here in the NYC area early Sunday evening and available on the Journal web site. Transcripts there come out in a few days.

I am swamped with real life issues and health care blogging will be light until Monday.

Many many many thanks to all who contributed, and many thanks to all who read my health care blogging.

Please, someone else jump in and do some health care blogging until I can return to this.
