In The News: The Democrats have voted cloture and that allows them to send the Heath Reform bill to debate, perhaps even on Christmas eve. When they come back from holiday recess it will go to conference committee and perhaps, by the time the State of the Union address occurs it will get out of conference and onto the floor.

But no matter what...

"Despite efforts to increase the number of physicians in rural and other underserved areas, shortages persist. Twenty-two counties, mostly in West Texas and the Panhandle, were without a doctor as of October, and more than two dozen counties listed one physician, according to a Star-Telegram analysis of state licensing records."

President Obama flew into Copenhagen over the weekend where the Climate Conference ended with a weak agreement containing no 'enforcement tools'.

In Yemen, a country totally incapable of defending itself, US launched 'Cruise' missiles fired by remote control drones kill 120 civilians, even as we repatriate four Guantanamo detainees there.

That's our boy! In Afghanistan, 'president' Karzai names his new cabinet... For the most part either tribal relatives or Opium warlords

Oh yeah... Da Buffalo has one last piece of news on the international diplomacy front:

As some have observed, I've been following the Sea Shepherd Antarctic campaign.
(partly because I have most of the necessary skill sets and wish I was younger, and there)

The news this morning?

Japan does not recognize the Australian Antarctic Territorial claim.

Those words were spoken to the radio operator at Australia's Antarctic Mawson’s Hut base by the skipper of the Japanese Whaling vessel Shonan Maru No. 2...

And you thought America was the only imperially oriented nation left on the planet...

Read all about it at Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's site.

[After the commentary Bob Rivers laments "Didn't I Get This Last Year" but Bob Humbug & The Double-Wide Blues Review REALLY get it down (and get down) with "I Love To Hate Christmas"]
