    Republican senators blocked Democratic legislation on Thursday that sought to provide medical care to rescue workers and residents of New York City who became ill as a result of breathing in toxic fumes, dust and smoke from ground zero.

    there must be something else to this story...

    This actually happened a while ago.

    While this sucks, is anyone really surprised?

    I don't know the make up of the dems to republicans in this vote, but it's looking like this was another thing on the List of Things to Quash to Make Obama Look Bad in 2012.

    Yeah Weiner really went looney on that statement

    but he's completely correct

    legislators have a fiduciary responsibility (even if it can and should not be legally recognized) to their constituency as well as to the nation as a whole, and it ought to preclude them from voting against the interest of the country and against their conscience

    we'll forgive the Representative from one of the boroughs of New York City for getting all hot and bothered over the treatment of 9/11 responders

    This will probably continue to be blocked until Republicans can oust Obama. It's clear they're willing to change stances for no other reason than political posturing so if we end up with a conservative president in 2012 I would look forward to seeing all those win-win pieces of legislation being passed with no resistance

    You don't want Americans rioting because we tend to go way too far. 'Go big or go home' is the riot philosophy in the states.

    One time, I had a friend over to play a bit of Red Alert on my LAN. During the game he said he needed to go to the bathroom, so we paused it. After about 10 minutes of wondering where the hell he went, I get up and go to check on him.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    Gradual, nonviolent change is a lot more preferable than pretty much any alternative. The reason that such shitty politics are going on is because the people want it, because the people don't know any better. Other than educating the people there really isn't anything you can do (aside from getting politically active)

    If you want to try something else to get people to 'do something' I'm all ears
