Welcome To the Banana Republic of America

We really dodged a bullet when John McCain did not get elected president. And shame on the rest of them.

The seven Senators who voted against this bill are:

Coburn (R-OK)
Harkin (D-IA)
Lee (R-UT)
Merkley (D-OR)
Paul (R-KY)
Sanders (I-VT)
Wyden (D-OR)

    Hey Greg,

    Comedy Central videos aren’t available outside of the USA, just so’s you knows.

    @Crommunist – Yeah, it’s a pain whenever I try to point these videos out to my Canadian friend (not sure why Comedy Central has to split the video streams out).

    The main Canadian website is http://watch.thecomedynetwork.ca/the-daily-show-with-jon-stewart – the episode was 12/7/11 (last night)…the first segment is being referenced if you don’t want to watch the whole episode.

    I’m outside the US and could see it fine…

    It may depend on the country–the link worked for me in Ecuador.

    What a frightening country the US is becoming.

  5. Greg Laden says:

    I know, and it’s a shame. The great nation of Canadia is the second biggest reader of my blog. I have no idea why they are not visible there.

    America sure behaves like a banana republic, but it cannot really be one as it does not grow bananas.
