GIVE BLOOD...PLAY HOCKEY, YOU SON OF A ZAMBONI!

GIVE BLOOD...PLAY HOCKEY, YOU SON OF A ZAMBONI!

Hey gang!  Bunch of stuff here today, including politics and ice hockey!  Ain’t that a great combo?  The funny thing about it all is that the political talk here today has to do with health care, and if you play hockey the right way, you will eventually need health care.  The other odd bit is that the discussion about health care contained in today’s blog has to do with a hold up over a provision in the current health care reform measure working it’s way through Congress that could put the whole thing “on ice”!  And of course, anyone short of a knuckle-dragging troglodyte knows that hockey is played on frozen pond, or…ice!!!!  But that’s enough of this cyclical karma B.S., on to the rest of the blog!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH CONGRESSMAN BART STUPAK.

THE GOOD CONGRESSMAN, BART STUPAK.

THE GOOD CONGRESSMAN, BART STUPAK.

Thanks to our US Congressman Bart Stupak for taking the time to call us to discuss a measure that has been added to the Health Care Reform package moving through Congress that has to do with public funding for abortions.  The Congressman, who is a pro-life Democrat, is vehemently against an amendment that added this provision, and he is requesting a meeting with the President to call him out on his recent statement before Congress that the Health Care reform measure does not contain any mechanism for public funding of abortions.  To listen to this lively interview with our favorite Menominee Democrat, click “HERE“.
