Singularly the best resource on The Affordable Care Act published to date

This article is lengthy, but it should be a required read for every American of voting age.  It goes into the history of the American medical system, the rise of Medicare, Liberal's past attempts at universal healthcare, the logic behind the "individual mandate" and the historical references to why this could work.

It is not a partisan pontification of why the ACA ("Obamacare") is fantastic and is going to change our history, and it is not a slam against ACA opposition.  It is an unbias approach to explaining why health insurance reform is required in America while addressing the concerns of its opposition.

Virunga National Park is under threat.

Africa’s oldest national park could soon become Africa’s newest oil field.

Drilling for oil may bring pollution, destruction and destabilization to this fragile environment. Please take a minute to sign our pledge and say no to oil exploration in Virunga. http://panda.org/draw_the_line

I wholeheartedly support this idea.

On a similar note:
“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'."  -Isaac Asimov

Because no.  It isn't.

The President just gave one of his better speeches on the health care law and, in the process, hammered Republicans pretty hard, basically calling them crazy.

"I guarantee you this, once the Affordable Care Act is working, Republicans won't be calling it Obamacare."  -President Obama
