So not only do these assholes return the pre-existing conditions, they return some of the worst ones that can be used to deny someone. The GOP really is a shitty party. And it’s all ultimately about giving the rich assholes that keep the GOP a float more tax cuts.

It’s Friday…so some music as a comment. From one of my still favorite bands…

Spirit - 1984

1984
Knockin’ on your door
Will you let it come?
Will you let it run your life?

1984
Knockin’ on your door
Will you let it come?
Will you let it run your life?

Someone will be waiting for you at your door
When you get home tonight
Ah yes, he’s gonna tell you darkness gives you much more
Than you get from the light

Classic plastic guards well they’re your special friend
He sees you every night
Well he call himself the brother but you know it’s no game
You’re never out of his sight

1984
Knockin’ on your door
Will you let it come?
Will you let it run your life?

It’s time you started thinking inside your head
That you should stand up and fight
Oh just where will you be when your freedom is dead
Won’t you listen tonight?

Those classic plastic coppers, they are your special friends
They see you every night
Well they call themselves protection but they know it’s no game
You’re never out of their sight

1984
Knockin’ on your door
Will you let it come?
Will you let it run?

1984
Knockin’ on your door
Will you let it come?
Will you let it run?

Undoubtedly disgusting, but I think the core of Racist Dad’s animus is explained right there in the BuzzFeed article:

She added that her father’s views are especially hurtful because her half-sister on her mom’s side is biracial, so the issue is personal for them.

The usual mix: redneck culture, cheap sexual jealousy, p3nis envy: gets ‘em every time. I’m glad, at least, that Anna got as much online support as she did. Before the trolls descend, anyway….

Why would the GOP think that the CBO/JCT numbers are wrong? Are they going to claim that they got the numbers wrong on the original Obamacare?

Turns out that the costs were lower than they anticipated, but also that the number of people were covered was made lower because the GOP didn’t expand Medicaid in a host of states where expansion would have done the most good.

In other words, the GOP sabotaged Obamacare and then claim that it fails.

Totally understand that and I know they’ll point to how the score was “wrong” on Obamacare. Let’s take that at face value for the moment. If the bill is half as bad as anticipated (relative to CBO scoring), it’s still one of the most horrific pieces of legislation in recent memory. And the odds that the CBO being off by a factor of 2 or more? I’ll go with slim to none and slim just bumped a family from a Delta flight on his way out of town.

Heh. Nice one darthstar.

Maybe Midnight Oil liked them some Spirit and coped some riffs.

Good points, but I’d counter with this - during the Crack Epidemic, we heard about black gangs and superpredators and drivebys. Now, we’re treated to heart-wrenching tearjerkers about the poor white folks who had a decent living until the paper mill/shoe factory/coal mine closed down, and now they have no hope.

Similar situation. Different color of drug user.

It would be horrific, because whereas in California, the geology tends to dampen shaking quickly with distance, back East it tends to propagate it.

Note also that NOBODY here builds in unreinforced masonry, because it shatters and crumbles in an earthquake. Think how much of the area that would be affected by a New Madrid style quake is build of brick.

The entire thrust of Trump and the GOP is sabotage. They want things to fail, claiming that govt can’t do the job - outsource to their cronies, or otherwise cut govt funding, all to create a cycle of sabotage, funding cuts, more sabotage, and gutting safety net programs to fund their tax cuts.

This is a brutal assault on civil rights, liberties, and the underpinnings of the Constitution itself. The GOP is complicit in ignoring the Constitution - Art. 1 Sec. 8 General Welfare clause (though they’ll claim that cutting taxes is for the general welfare, when massively redistributing the nation’s wealth from everyone to the rich.

The GOP isn’t above redistribution of wealth. They just want it flowing to the rich cronies and insiders that have paid their way.

Sadly (or perhaps not so sadly, depending on my mood), those who voted for Trump will be hardest hit by this sabotage and goal.

The thing is we’re really not technically divided by states as so much we are by urban versus rural. Even in predominately Democratic states, you have maybe 5-10 urbanized areas where most of the people live and that are the economic centers of the state and those tend to vote Democratic.

And if Republicans get anywhere near a position of influence to be able to do so, they’ll gerrymander the voting districts to make sure that Democrats have their prospects for a majority minimized, if not near-eliminated. And then dump vast amounts (or vast by local-election standards, anyway) of money into GOP campaigns to make sure things stay that way.

Exactly. That’s how you get states like Virginia that despite being won by Obama twice and Clinton have much more Republicans in both the state legislature and in Congress.

Like a lot of new cars, when I got the Dodge, it came with sattelite radio, and a one year subscription to Sirius XM. It was…okay. Definitely not worth $200 a year subscription, in the car.

Starting like 2 months before the 1 year expired, and continuing on an almost daily basis since them (2 full years), Sirius sends me emails telling me I’ve scored this FANTASTIC offer!!!

Always exactly the same offer. Always phrased as if this one is somehow different from all the previous offers.

We got a car with SiriusXM, and let the intro deal expire. No worries on our end, but we got an endless stream of emails/mailings saying we’ve got a great deal (some were good, but others were meh).

And there’s almost always a better deal online if you search for the codes.

Hacked records show Bradley Foundation taking its conservative Wisconsin model national

Long a player on the national stage, the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has been quietly using its vast resources to construct state-by-state networks of activist groups to win support for its conservative agenda from coast to coast.

This previously undisclosed effort by the Bradley Foundation was revealed in hundreds of thousands of documents swiped by international hackers from the foundation’s server late last year.

Those internal documents, obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in recent months, show the conservative powerhouse is working to duplicate its success in Wisconsin under Republican Gov. Scott Walker, focusing on such swing states as North Carolina and Colorado.

“You have to take a longer view on some of the things we’re trying to accomplish,” said Bradley Foundation CEO Rick Graber in an interview. “You’re not going to see definitive results every three months. It can take decades.”

My youngest older sister has just taken possession of their new house in Sarasota. It’s on a lake. She posted a picture of the lake, and everyone said ‘Florida has alligators’, till finally she went off on somebody. I mean, like, full F-bomb going off.

Of course, it turns out the person she went off on actually lived in Florida and knew what she was talking about. Not that my sister apologized.

Wheeeeeeeeeeee, happy cinco de mayo Lizards. Otherwise known as Friday after a shitty week. Mmmm margaritas. From the place that does them fantastically strong when you’re walking home and can have a conversation with other adults who are not at all related to you while you drink.

I talked politics on my way home with my mom (not unusual) and my dad (unusual). My dad probably leans moderate Republican (I think I’ve said this before) but is pro-universal healthcare (because of the logical reasons that we’re all fucking paying for it either way) which did surprise me on the topic the last time we talked. (He was giving me the same argument that I used on his parents once, to get them to acknowledge the need for universal healthcare. )

But. So. There’s that. At least one person who leans vaguely Republican (unless my dad has really been hiding his political leanings from me for years which I find unlikely, although possible - he like me is in the very non-confrontational camp, as opposed to my mom) who is anti-the current mess.

Sorry, that’s the level of political analysis the margaritas have granted me. But I feel a hell of a lot better at the moment.

From a leftist perspective, I do get where they are coming from. Punching down to a marginalized community really isn’t cool and the joke only works because it plays off some of the right wing distaste for calling a straight person gay.

On the flipside, I am human and I think that the particular commentary is relatively true, if crudely stated. So. Welcome to humanity.

It might boost resale value but it’s best to roll the cost into an entire roofing job so panels and roof age out around the same time. I really like the solar shingle options Solar City is brining to market.

Yeah, the roof is at the point where it’s probably at most 1/2 of the way into its lifetime so that’s probably a project best left to the next owner. I mean, when your sale timeline is in the next 2-5 years you evaluate shit differently than if you’re going to be in the house for 30 years because yes.

Yay. I just mowed the lawn for the first time this year (it should have been done last week). The 20 year-old Toro 2-stroke sat in the garage since the last time I mowed last fall. I usually try to empty the tank but it sat with half a tank of gas all winter. I topped it off with fresh gas, hit the primer about a dozen times, and it started up (in a cloud of smoke) on the second pull. It took a couple of starts before it kept running, but it was running like a champ after the third start. I know that a 2-stroke is a pollution machine but my yard is small. It only takes half an hour to mow the whole yard.

I’m pretty lucky that anything works for me given the way I ignore maintenance.

Oil leaking from the engine would mean a new car? It’s likely just a bad gasket. Worst case would be a crankshaft seal, but even those shouldn’t be that expensive to replace. Although that may depend on the car. >.<

Actually, it doesn’t take a lot of repair costs to be more than the car is worth. The question is, is the aggregated cost going to be more than a new car? New engine - yes, get a new car. Fifteen things go wrong at once - yes, get a new car. Need to drop $500 for new head gaskets - maybe, probably not.

I adore my car and it has had two unsolicited requests to buy it.

It has also had to have its fuel pump replaced, new brakes, new tires, and now this. Which I should get around to dealing with as soon as I can figure out who the hell can steam clean an engine and then get it back in to be looked at. I’m not sure the AC is working 100% either, as we come into summer, and then there’s the part where it didn’t want to stay running for no clear reason last spring, but didn’t want to reproduce that for the mechanic. Bastard.

I’m willing to sink money into this car, but within reason.

re: #299 Skip Intro

I guess he couldn’t get the French Comey to announce Macron was the subject of an investigation.

A BBC piece on the Macron hacking flap brought up an interesting point:

The campaign said that genuine files were mixed up with fake ones in order to confuse people.

Some anonymous hacker posts a ton of documents on some anonymous website somewhere: how DO you tell what is real and what is fake? Myself, I would guess that you can’t, and that the credibility of some (most? all?) of these unauthorized document dumps ought to be highly, if not fatally compromised.
Of course (and I’m thinking back to the release of the hacked DNC stuff during our own campaign last year) the hacked documents are often mind-numbingly prosaic/boring/uninformative: it’s usually the fact of the “hacking” that gets media interest: but I wonder how long it will be before the novelty wears off….?

re: #285 The Vicious Babushka

This is how it really works. Most people get/got their healthcare through their employer, so they have no reason to go into the wonderful “free” market themselves. But then they get older.

Maybe they get laid off. Maybe they can’t find another job with healthcare. Maybe by then they’ve seen a doctor or two for this or that.

Bingo! You now have pre-existing conditions! Maybe you broke a bone, had surgery, or take a pill for hypertension. You win again! You are now uninsurable. All this winning!

Sure the smart thing would be to buy health insurance when you’re young and have no medical record. But who’s going to do that if their insurance is “free” from their employer, especially since they’re probably not making the big bucks yet and have other things they have to spend money on, like food, rent, and transportation.

Of course one way that would help ease the cost of personal medical insurance would be if it was deductible, dollar for dollar, from your taxes. But of course it isn’t.

Having had to pay for my own insurance for around 20 years I do know something about how the whole foul system worked up till the ACA, and I know exactly how it’s going work again once the GOP gets its way.

Think any members of congress have their own personal policies? Of course not.

We just expected it to blow up at some point but it never left us stranded. I’m lucky I never got pulled over because of the clouds coming out of the exhaust pipe.

good fucking grief.

Have people really forgotten all the stories about people who did have health insurance then, when a catastrophic illness popped up, were dropped by their insurers for having made a “false” statement of their application.

For those of you who never had the privilege of buying your own policy pre ACA, you are required to give a full medical history going back to childhood. What doctors did you see, for what reason? What are the names, addresses, and phone numbers? What medications did they prescribe?

My Blue Shield of CA application was nearly 30 pages long. I was rejected literally in the next day’s mail, so the first thing they look for are red flags. Once you’re turned down by one company you are required to tell every other company you apply to about it. They then turn you down too.

re: #153 Blind Frog Belly White

Like a lot of new cars, when I got the Dodge, it came with sattelite radio, and a one year subscription to Sirius XM. It was…okay. Definitely not worth $200 a year subscription, in the car.

Starting like 2 months before the 1 year expired, and continuing on an almost daily basis since them (2 full years), Sirius sends me emails telling me I’ve scored this FANTASTIC offer!!!

Always exactly the same offer. Always phrased as if this one is somehow different from all the previous offers.

I’m curious how many people this works on.

NEVER subscribe to Sirius, or resubscribe, without calling them and telling them you plan to cancel because it’s just not worth it. With a little finesse, you’ll get a much better rate, plus they’ll normally drop the “royalty fee” that they’ve started tacking on.

re: #298 stpaulbear

Yay. I just mowed the lawn for the first time this year (it should have been done last week). The 20 year-old Toro 2-stroke sat in the garage since the last time I mowed last fall. I usually try to empty the tank but it sat with half a tank of gas all winter. I topped it off with fresh gas, hit the primer about a dozen times, and it started up (in a cloud of smoke) on the second pull. It took a couple of starts before it kept running, but it was running like a champ after the third start. I know that a 2-stroke is a pollution machine but my yard is small. It only takes half an hour to mow the whole yard.

I’m pretty lucky that anything works for me given the way I ignore maintenance.

My mowing job is a thirty-seven hour one. Over and over. But fun.

re: #295 Backwoods_Sleuth

so, @ReaganBattalion somehow believes that everyone who gets cancer never ever had health insurance until after they got cancer?

good fucking grief.

Everyone who ever got adult-onset epilepsy didn’t take care of themselves or didn’t have insurance.

(Epilepsy gets you thrown off both health and life insurance. For now the VA has me covered but I have to save money to die.)

I had to make an emergency run into town - needed to photocopy my passport and drivers license for my state water operator license (proof of citizenship and age). The copier at the village public library died. Thirty-two mile round trip for a photocopy… .
