Podcast Omega: Single Payer Health Care: An Hour-long Special

The 24th and last podcast of the Broadcaster At-Large series is a special on single-payer health care featuring Dr. Margaret Flowers of Physicians for a National Health Program ( and the Baucus 8. Although the Greater Health Insurance Industry Profits Act of 2010 has been passed, it should not be the final word in health care, so download and distribute this program widely. You will find it on the left sidebar.

I am leaving podcasting to turn my attention to writing a book and seeking better health by not being so angry at world events. (High blood pressure is one of several stress-related ailments I have).  It is very obvious after 11 years in journalism,  that I am not the opinion shaper I had hoped to become. Quite frankly, with little feedback, little other evidence of listenership and only one small donation since I began this podcast series, it is not worth the stress to continue. Bigger than me, e.g. Paul Craig Roberts, have called it quits. No sense my continuing to report to deaf ears. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over yet expecting a different result. Whatever is wrong with me, insanity is NOT one of my problems.

Good luck to those who are choosing to carry on in the face of corporatism, ultra-conservative demagoguery, fear-mongering, racism, homophobia, religious bigotry, militarism, etc. etc. coupled with a lack of will on the part of allegedly progressive public officials to fight  for what they truly believe in. (Yes, Kucinich, Grayson and Sanders, I mean you). The lassitude of most Americans and the often outright obstruction by the lily-livered left at a time when similar economic and political conditions have put people of other countries into the streets until the government fell, is the most disgusting and discouraging part of the struggle.

I have had enough!

Just remember, as you get tossed out of your foreclosed home, or censored and even arrested for speaking out for peace or universal  health care or anything else the elites don't want us to have,  that I was one of the ones who told you early on that 911 was an inside job. We got here from there.
