and yeah there are better ways of doing it. I remember hearing the French system is the best system of healthcare in the world ... although America has the number one response time. So at least we're number one in that respect.
The other thing is that this should never have been a Right vs Left thing but those damn Republicans just didn't want to stop. They had to make it a them vs an Obama thing.
I thought for sure that this would be voted down, but it made it through by a 5 to 4 vote and the deciding factor came from a Justice who was appointed in by a Republican who was suppose to turn down the healthcare but shocked everybody by voting for it. Maybe there is some hope for these wacky Republicans afterall.
Any scientist who isn't willing to kill for science isn't really a scientist at all.
Oh and before you ask, no, I'm not a Republican. I probably would have voted for Obama last election.
Damn this looks epic!

Ultimate Marvel did have the 2nd Ghost Rider/Vengeance as the President, so your regards as democrats being horribly inept villains is pretty funnily true. Also oh please, Dante's Inferno is nothing more than a middle aged man's frusfration on the social class system and not getting over his childhood love. Read the bible if you wanna talk about Hell.
Maaan, Batman Incorporated #2 was a wonderful origin tale for Talia al Ghul, seeing Ras' al Ghul again was nice too, not to mention him finally being proud of his daughter. Talia's crazy face and Bruce's shock at child making was hilarious, but this panel just steals the show:
Dark Knight #10 begins Hurwitz's run, while good, it still shows how you got people simply making villains more "extreme", because it's hip and cool, heh. :/ Teen Titans (and Superboy while we're at it) are back to being good fun, nomore of that Culling stuff! Me like!
Action Comics #11 preview! Batman & Superman! Superman's new Identity!

Holy cow, Saga #1 is great. I'm definitely jumping on board.
Of course, I've gotta make sure to read it at home and not at work. I'm glad my boss wasn't around yesterday, because I was not expecting so many alien boobies to appear on my screen.
Anyways, what really stood out to me about this book was the dialogue. Bendis gets a lot of attention for his realistic dialogue, but this issue reminds me that BKV is the true master. My favorite line:
The setting has me hooked as well. This universe is like the result of a threesome between Star Wars, Dungeons & Dragons, and Grant Morrison. I can't get enough of it.You'll never have sex with me again if I defecate on you. Unless you're into that. (Please don't be into that.)
Without a doubt, I'm buying issue #2 the next time I find $2 to spare.
Nowadays, the definitions of right-wing and left-wing have had so many meanings, they've pretty much lost all meaning. It seems to mean different things to different people. I'm from the UK and so I'm not even entirely sure what Republican means. If you're a Republican does that mean your right-winged? I thought right wing VS left wing had something to do with intelligence and/or creative thinking. Or it was to do with mannerisms. It all seems so strange to be. Is a left winged person a liberal or something? What the hell does that mean? That they're anti-government? That they're hippies? I really have no idea what Americans are on about when they talk about right wing and left wing in politics. Does it actually mean anything?
Guardians of the Galaxy 2014 almost confirmed now. I'm giddy like a child right now.
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
"Right-wing" = conservative, generally associated with the center-right Republican party. Proponents of small government, lassiez-faire economics, aggressive foreign policy, and traditional Judeo-Christian social stances. Typically characterized as Nazis, racists, and old rich white guys.
"Left-wing" = liberal, generally associated with the center-left Democratic party. Proponents of government-run social programs, blended economy, less aggressive foreign policy, and secular social policies. Typically characterized as hippies, Socialists, and young rich white guys.
Unfortunately, with only two parties to choose from, there's not much of a middle ground, so politics are especially divisive. There's a single line in the sand, and you kinda have to pick a side.
Kinda sucks. Gotta wait until Tuesday to get Spider-Men #2 cause my comic shop doesn't usually get comics until around that time...
Also, I read ASM #688, and it seems like I'm missing A LOT of story. I came into ASM around #665. I am SO out of the loop right now. xD
My uncle once told me something I will never forget for the rest of my life..."Thwip Thwip."

I had a dream last night that I watched a trailer for "X-Men: First Class 2." My disappointment upon awakening was awful.

I don't know a lot about Obama. But when he first came into power, he said it was the people in Afghanastsn that were the real victims. Not us. This is completely true and I'm both glad and pleasantly surprised to hear him say that. I heard he's corrupt. But how is he anymore corrupt than any other political leader? He seems alright to me.
