Hat tip: Self Evident Truths
One of the myths perpetuated by macro-evolutionists (in addition to insisting that the concept is false and that those crazy creationists came up with the idea) is that so much depends on evolution. Click the link to read how bogus those claims are. Really, folks, you don’t have to believe the molecules-to-man / elephants / caterpillar-butterfly / etc. version to be able to make antibiotics.
In case you missed it, definitely spend a couple minutes on What on honest President would say, the video by Robert Reich. It is one of those pesky videos that highlights how a current Obama health care plan supporter said the opposite things a couple years back.
Thank you so much for coming this afternoon. I’m so glad to see you, and I would like to be president. Let me tell you a few things on health care. Look, we have the only health-care system in the world that is designed to avoid sick people. [laughter] That’s true, and what I’m going to do is I am going to try to reorganize it to be more amenable to treating sick people. But that means you–particularly you young people, particularly you young, healthy people–you’re going to have to pay more. [applause] Thank you.
And by the way, we are going to have to–if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive, so we’re going to let you die. [applause]
Also, I’m going to use the bargaining leverage of the federal government in terms of Medicare, Medicaid–we already have a lot of bargaining leverage–to force drug companies and insurance companies and medical suppliers to reduce their costs. But that means less innovation, and that means less new products and less new drugs on the market, which means you are probably not going to live that much longer than your parents. [applause] Thank you.”

Reich took a long time to create some sort of spin once the video surfaced, but his attempted rebuttal was weak.
Don’t be fooled: Abortion is in the health care plan. Leaders who tells you otherwise are lying. Those who believe it are naive.
I don’t watch Glenn Beck, but thought we should check up on the impact of the boycott against him:
+ Maddow 9pm
+ Olbermann 10pm
+ Maddow 11pm
+ 109,000 other people
= Glenn Beck at 5pm
It must just be his time slot.
