Obama vowed to press ahead with implementing his law, and reiterated that the health insurance market needs reforming to guarantee stable health insurance coverage. "I make no apologies for us taking this on," he said. "Because somebody sooner or later had to do it."
"It took a hundred years for us to even get to the point where we could start talking about and implementing a law to make sure everybody's got health insurance, and my pledge to the American people is, is that we're going to solve the problems that are there, we're going to get it right, and the Affordable Care Act is going to work for the American people," Obama said.It's because the world has heard this fatal conceit before; Of course, many months and years must pass before the new social class, a class heretofore oppressed and crushed by want and ignorance, can get accustomed to the new situation, can take account of everything, regulate its work and produce its own organizers.
'Trust me, I know better than you do what you need.'--Hugo Nicolas Vladimir Obama.
Which brings us to a new book by Paul R. Gregory; Women of the Gulag: Portraits of Five Remarkable Lives.
Capturing the fear, paranoia, and unbearable hardships that were the hallmarks of Stalin’s Great Terror, Gregory relates the stories of these five women–from different social strata and regions–in vivid prose, from their pre-Gulag lives, through their struggles to survive in the repressive atmosphere of the late 1930s and early 1940s, to the difficulties facing the four who survived as they adjusted to life after the Gulag.We note the publication of this small bit of history, along with the release of another movie about Hitler's Germany; The Book Thief. Funny that Hollywood is still cranking out films about a tyranny that was crushed in 1945, but rarely finds time for stories like those in Paul Gregory's book. Stories that are much more relevant as long as the Castros, Maduros, Kims still rule.
