I'm very satisfied with Barack Obama's performance. As a no-party-affiliation voter, I'll be voting for him again in November. He has been exactly what I expected him to be: a competent administrator, who carefully weighs the consequences of his decisions.
I actually like so-called Obamacare. I don't see why insurance companies should be able to refuse to treat pre-existing conditions, or drop you when you get sick. I don't find the individual mandate troubling. The "public option" could be a better solution, but Obamacare is acceptable. The previous insurance and health care payment system was horribly broken. If you never tried to obtain commercial health insurance as an individual under that system, you have no idea how bad it was.
Libya was an impeachable offense? Hm... The tens of thousands of not-dead people in Benghazi, whom Gaddafi didn't slaughter in the streets as he promised, those people might not understand why you would feel that way.
It's one thing for conservatives to be indifferent human suffering. That's basically their brand. But for liberals and progressives to take the same stance... I question what is left of those ideologies when you drain out the compassion. Not all military intervention is inherently wrong.
You know, I really want to like this place. The new location on Broadway is nicely appointed and pretty comfortable. The food is decent for sushi in Tucson, and especially during their happy hour, the prices are reasonable.
But on both our last two visits, a few months apart, there have been significant mistakes, long delays, lost tickets, items we didn't receive but were billed for. The wait staff has always straightened it out, but it's dinner at a restaurant, you know, there shouldn't have to be a reconciliation process.
I hope Sushi Garden gets its act in gear, but that hope is fading.
