Michael Scott: The Meaningful Character

by Vince

CPC provides a nice run down on the many sides of Michael Scott as he bows out from his show The Office:

No longer is he a figure of anger and frustration, a target for our workplace cynicism.  Instead, his pathetic earnestness has brought out the best in the office.  The workers have learned to be forgiving, patient, and thoughtful.  They participate in each other’s lives, and help each other grow.  They see the good in each other and forgive the bad.  And against all odds, they have formed a loving community, one whose benefits far outweigh moments of awkwardness and inappropriate behavior.  They have learned to make their lives meaningful through relationships.

(thanks, BF!)

Comparing Health Care to Slavery of the Day

by Vince

“With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have realize what that implies. It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery. It means that you’re going to enslave not only me, but the janitor at my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants who work in my office, the nurses. … You have a right to beat down my door with the police, escort me away and force me to take care of you? That’s ultimately what the right to free health care would be,” – Senator Rand Paul.

Some days I like Rand. Today, I feel he is off kilter.

Oh Great of the Day

by Vince

Some news on our toxic relationship with Pakistan and their military:

 Despite mounting pressure from the United States since the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden,Pakistan’s army chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, seems unlikely to respond to American demands to root out other militant leaders, according to people who have met with him in the last 10 days.

While the general does not want to abandon the alliance completely, he is more likely to pursue a strategy of decreasing Pakistan’s reliance on the United States, and continuing to offer just enough cooperation to keep the billions of dollars in American aid flowing, said a confidant of the general who has spoken with him recently.

Mind you, we have provided $20 billion since 2001 (that figure doesn’t include covert aid) to Pakistan. This article is worth a full read; it’s quite interesting.
