The main news story this week (unless you are a Rafael Nadal fan) is of course the upholding of the constitutionality of President Obama's healthcare plan by the Supreme Court. To most Americans, and practically all non-Americans (who have for years viewed with disbelief the USA's backward system of "healthcare for the rich") this was excellent news.
Of course, the American Right has been frantically campaigning against this extension of medical coverage to more poor people. Take this tasteful little example:
Now that they have lost their fight to keep the USA in the Dark Ages (or postponed it until November....) the Loons are showing themselves to be spectacularly bad losers. The Supreme Court decision....
.... is like the September 11th attacks
.... shows that Chief Justice Roberts's ability to make rational decisions has been affected by his epilepsy
.... is an act of treason to which the correct response is armed insurrection against the U.S. government
.... is a result of threats to Chief Justice Roberts's family
.... is a reason to leave the USA and relocate to Canada (where they've had universal healthcare for more than forty years).
Let's not forget that the man these buffoons all want to replace President Obama from January next year implemented a nearly identical plan in his own state of Massachusetts when he was Governor.
It really is hard to take these people seriously.
