At least when middle class and working class Americans start getting screwed because of this tax scam, they know exactly who to blame. No Democrat is tied to this atrocity. This is all on the Republican party.

Most Americans can’t even remember that Republicans took the country into a gov’t shutdown over the Affordable Care Act and that was just a little over 4 years ago. In a year’s time, all they’ll hear is “Democrats voted against tax cuts!” and that will be the history everybody suddenly remembers.

Still recovering. I guess you guys haven’t heard about me coming down with some nasty form of food poisoning on the flight home and winding up having to cancel the last leg of my flight and take a hotel room to recuperate enough to fly back to fish country. Should’ve sent a call out to the NYC lizards to come look me up… if I’d managed to stay conscious for more than about 15 minutes at a stretch. I think I slept 16 hours on Sunday.

If there is a lesson from all of the last whatever years…..There is NO election year. There is NO midterms. There is NOTHING but a non stop information stream from the GOP on how marvelous they are. They are not. The Democrats need to hammer who and what the Republicans are and what they bring/ take from the American people. The propaganda machine of the right never stopped. When the Democratic party and it’s backers realize it is now a 24/7/365 fight to a seat, maybe then we will right this ship. Many people are not tuned in, have no clue. Except for that Fox News AM radio onslaught, they are witless. I could go on for about 2 weeks here, but it never ends. It’s an election cycle that is everyday of every week of every month. That is what the GOP does. Non stop. Unending. Talking points, arm in arm, walking towards that paycheck. Until the Democratic Party supports down ticket and grass roots candidates EVERYWHERE, they will be outnumbered in voice. My 2 cents. We will survive this. We will. At what price remains to be seen. Election season started last century. Learn. IMHO. And when they go low….Knee them in the balls and punch them in the throat.
Just my humble opinion.

Hyderabad was and is, apparently, known as a center of the pearl trade. They have many government-inspected pearl vendors, and my local contacts took us to one that they recommended. It turned out spectacularly, and Mrs. Fish was most delighted with the end result. She won’t hardly take them off but to sleep.

Wow.

I have a sting of pearls, asked & received for my college grad present. Haven’t worn for years, but probably should, they are classic.

And not one of you mention Sarah Sanders. I’m completely blanking that out.

Targetpractice  Dec 19, 2017 • 4:58:59pm

You check out the newsstand and you see frontpage headlines that treat every utterance from Republican as undisputed fact. You pull up news websites and see “balanced” coverage that puts a Republican trying to bang his interns on the same level as a Democrat who once made a sexist remark back in 1980. And when you turn on the TV, you see “liberal” news networks bringing on pro-Trump commentators to tell folks about how Democrats are all a bunch of evil liars trying to overturn the election and stage a coup.

So I totally expect to hear before next November about how any economic downturn is totally the fault of Congressional Democrats and a significant fraction of the public to either buy it…or fall into the “no opinion” part of the pie chart.

There’s just something about pearls when they’re done right. I mean, I see some pearl necklaces and I think, ugh, that’s just gaudy or ostentatious, or it’s overdone with the outfit or the look.

It’s interesting - During the Obama Administration, taxes for the vast majority either went down or stayed the same, but there was a large portion of Americans who were ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that Obama had raised their taxes, even though in the majority of cases he had not.

In the case of this legislation, since most people already believe that it will raise their taxes, I doubt that there’s much the GOP can do to change that impression. And at this point nobody but Trump’s base believes anything he says, so him telling people he will personally lose money will convince pretty much nobody.

Belafon  Dec 19, 2017 • 7:47:39pm

That chart at the top is actually a good starting point for me to talk about my philosophy on life. There are two ways to read it. The first, being pessimistic, is to say “Why didn’t more Democrats run over previous years?” You could read it that way, but, considering the way Republicans ran over the same time period, the Democrats weren’t really out of line.

The second, the way I see it, is “It’s awesome that so many Democrats are running.” To me, there’s not much you can do about the past except learn from it. Without a time machine, you can’t change it. So, I tend to put most of my energy on applauding what people are going to be doing. (On the other hand, I sometimes beat myself up for something I did 35 years ago.)

I’m not saying I’m perfect at this, but I just prefer to see what good people are doing as compared to lamenting what they did or did not do, and I’d rather root for the good people than get all depressed of the bad people, even if they temporarily have the upper hand. Evil can only win if good never fights back. Well, people are fighting back now.

From a recent article I received:

A recent Digiconomics report calculating that the global electricity consumption of bitcoin mining would exceed that of the U.S. by July 2019, and of the entire world by November 2020, suggests the cryptocurrency’s use discharges the equivalent of 17.7 million tons of carbon dioxide annually. At the root of this problem is the blockchain technology, the secure ledger of all bitcoin transactions, which relies on solving the SHA-256 hashing algorithm to add a block. The SHA-256 algorithm is by design so difficult that it cannot be solved without brute-force computing, which means the computer must be on continuously. With power consumption rising, bitcoin miners are building ASIC clouds in places where electricity is affordable. “Increasing the energy efficiency of bitcoin SHA-256 mining hardware helps only sublinearly, as improving energy efficiency simply means people can deploy more miners at the same operating cost,” notes the University of Washington’s Michael Taylor.

I don’t think they actually understand but they think that the wealthy donors will compensate for their dismissal of their constituents’ concerns. They believe that a few commercials and the constant propaganda from Fox and Sinclair will persuade their voters to continue to support them because the other side is evil, anti-gun, pro-minority, etc. Others have said that downstream — the voters vote against their own interest as long as there is someone else they can demonize.

And there’s truth to it. We like to tell ourselves that the voters are waking up, that they’re beginning to see the GOP for who they are and will take action. But we have to remember again that all (or at least most) politics are local and everybody tells themselves that it’s not their local/state rep who’s the problem…its everybody else who is the problem. It’s how Congressional incumbents enjoy a better than 90% chance of being reelected, because when the time comes voters decide that they like “their guy” too much to elect “the other guy.”

If there is a lesson from all of the last whatever years…..There is NO election year. There is NO midterms. There is NOTHING but a non stop information stream from the GOP on how marvelous they are. They are not. The Democrats need to hammer who and what the Republicans are and what they bring/ take from the American people. The propaganda machine of the right never stopped. When the Democratic party and it’s backers realize it is now a 24/7/365 fight to a seat, maybe then we will right this ship. Many people are not tuned in, have no clue. Except for that Fox News AM radio onslaught, they are witless. I could go on for about 2 weeks here, but it never ends. It’s an election cycle that is everyday of every week of every month. That is what the GOP does. Non stop. Unending. Talking points, arm in arm, walking towards that paycheck. Until the Democratic Party supports down ticket and grass roots candidates EVERYWHERE, they will be outnumbered in voice. My 2 cents. We will survive this. We will. At what price remains to be seen. Election season started last century. Learn. IMHO. And when they go low….Knee them in the balls and punch them in the throat.
Just my humble opinion.

Remember, the Democrats just won a senate seat in ALABAMA. Sure it was because Moore is a child molester, but that alone wouldn’t have been enough if the national political tide wasn’t flowing in the Democrats favor. If they can win in Alabama, with some of the harshest voter suppression laws on the books, there are huge numbers of nominally Republican leaning races that the Democrats can win.

re: #135 Hecuba’s daughter

Not really temper tantrum — the fact that Democrats were too chicken to run on their accomplishments. We are handicapped by not having our own propaganda network, but we should have run commercials boasting of providing health care to this country.

There was also a bit of “we’ve solved this, let’s move on” rather than taking credit for accomplishments. It sounds like a great altruistic move, but doesn’t work in practice.

But, 2010 was also just the beginning of the great black-man-in-the-White-House backlash.

We have an attending physician with a really unfortunate name. So much so, that the first time I encountered him I thought he was pulling my leg. “No really, what’s your name?” In my previous life there was a guy whose name was virtually lifted from a PA stunt from the movie Porky’s. I used to cringe asking for him on the phone. After a few years somebody finally changed his name on the letterhead to Michael.

dw.com

Last week, the finance ministers of Europe’s five biggest economies — Germany, France, the UK, Spain and Italy — wrote an anxious letter to their American colleague, US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, and copied it to all senior Republican politicians in the Congress and Senate.

The letter’s thrust: The draft US tax bill, if passed as written a week ago, would represent a break with global fair-taxation rules as applied to corporations, and represent a thinly disguised form of trade war.

We can argue that the GOP doesn’t learn from experience, but that’s wrong.

We will survive this. We will. At what price remains to be seen.

This is the million dollar question, isn’t it?

That the US will survive is highly likely… Russia survived the Communists and Germany Hitler… Trump isn’t going to inflict that kind of devastation, barring nuclear war with SK.

But the post-Trump US will be a shallow shell of what your country used to. You are mired in corruption, health & environmental crises, obscurantism, quite unprepared to face the challenges of this new century. My (often repeated) guess is that you’ll evolve into a democrature that will resemble a hybrid between Brazil and Russia. Brazil for the societal aspects, Russia for the military power and paranoia.

This will be very hard (as it already is) on anyone born before 1990; the others won’t have known anything different. The only think that might affect my prediction would be a grassroot groundswell à la FDR — if the 30% that don’t vote suddenly joined the 30% that vote democrats and pushed the last third back under their rocks, but I don’t see it happening. Bread and circuses are too good, propaganda is too omnipresent, to facilitate revolutions. In fact, a civil war would be more likely than a revolution.

I think I know about the accident you’re talking about….it was on Seconds From Disaster or one of those shows. Long story short, the train in question was already a bit behind schedule due to operator error in overshooting a platform earlier in the route; the train driver panicked and tried to make up for lost time. He went too fast going into a curve, which caused the train to derail and it plowed into a building causing several fatalities and numerous injuries.

Forgot to mention before bed last night that I gave my new Instant Pot a workout last night. A bit of stew meat, taters & carrot, along with gravy fixings and the stew button on the side after a saute. Little more than a half hour later, supper.

This really is a cool gadget. I have to learn to cook with it but it’s going to be fun, I think.

I have a small ham someone gave me. I think I’ll try putting it in there, with some tater & carrot as well, put a bit of apple juice over it all & pressure cook for about 30 ~ 35 minutes. Should be a nice little meal & a couple of days of sandwiches.

Thank you Shropshire Slasher. I am grateful for this gadget.

Good morning Lizards,

Watching the local news late yesterday while on the gym treadmill.

This lady comes up with the remote in her hand and asks if it was ok to change the channel. I said sure, change to what? She says FoxNews, I say oh no. She looks at me like I have a bird on my head, I smile back politely to her and say thank you as she tries to find a way to be pissed at me. I think I broke her stereotype of what they tell her a FoxNews hater is.

Hell no to FoxNews, I literally would rather watch anything else on that TV than FoxNews.

Some of you may be scratching your head since I said it was my birthday on Friday night. So in case you don’t know, Teh Juice have 2 birthdays every year! We have a regular, Gregorian calendar birthday which is on our birth certificate, and a Hebrew lunar/solar-adjusted calendar birthday which is the Hebrew date corresponding to the year we were born. These two dates may or may not coincide in other years.

I have a Futura pressure cooker, which is great. Pressure cookers do not have a timer and the pressure can only be adjusted by adjusting the burner flame on the stove.

I also have a slow cooker and a rice steamer.

Should I buy an instant pot? It seems redundant with all the gadgets that I already have, but if it’s so easy to use then maybe I can train Zedushka to have hot meal ready for me when I get home. All he knows how to make are hamburgers and hot dogs.

If Instant Pot is really easy to use maybe he can be trained on it. He’s intimidated by the pressure cooker, because 40 years ago our next door neighbor came home, saw the pressure cooker on the stove & was like “what’s this jiggling thing?” and BOOM!

The thing I keep reading about the Instant Pot is that you can make things like cake and yogurt in it. I am sure you could in other pressure cookers, but I have no idea how. They have all kinds of inserts for the IP (like a shelf that you can put, for example, a cake pan on…the recipe was for a cheesecake that didn’t crack on top and dry out).

I am debating if I need **another** gadget. And I am also wondering about the longevity of the IP. This pressure cooker I have is at least 10 years old and is still like new.

My pressure cooker is electric, not an on the stove type.

The IP is so easy it’s silly. You literally push a button that says something like cook This or That so training him should be a snap! (Put on glasses, dump this into the pot, turn the handle, push button.}

Greets and saluts from the resistance in the NYC metro area. I’ve been exceptionally busy (and on vacation before that), as the massive tax scam is rammed through a GOP controlled Congress without caring what happens (oh wait, they care - only about the GOP donors and need to give millionaires bigger tax cuts and corporations even more cash for them to dole out to shareholders instead of adding hires or increasing wages).

As the tax experts continue to review this mess, the more we see how this isn’t tax simplification or even rational. It expands loopholes, it adds complexity, and it adds to the tax burdens for many in the middle class.

The only ones guaranteed to benefit are those in the top quintile. The middle quintile has to do math to see if they’re screwed (hint: they are, though many wont realize it right away).

But that’s not even the half of it.

The GOP fucked up because they can’t actually sign this mess this year.

That’s right. If they signed it this year, it’d hit pay-go rules, and that means that it would trigger massive cuts to Medicare and other discretionary programs (aka sequester) because this scam is adding $1.5 trillion to the debt.

So, instead of going back to the drawing board, the GOP will wait to sign it until next year. That way, the sequester doesn’t take hold until after the midterms.

Alternatively, the GOP will simply ignore pay-go and massively add to the debt and attack Medicare/Social Security next year.

GOP delenda est.

Nothing wrong with one of those that is kept clean, maintained (safety valve, seal, etc) properly and used correctly. For someone who is not as good a cook as VB, the Instant Pot is like this but better. The simplicity of many of the recipes, the more fool proof operation, and multi-use options (This gift replaces both my slow cooker & my rice cooker.) make it a good thing for other people. I don’t know if VB would get as much out of it as someone like me though if she can teach her husband how to put a brisket into it and have a hot supper ready when she gets home? Even if only couple of times a month, that might make it worth while.

That’s not a pressure cooker, it’s a bomb. Pressure cookers have timers and electronically controlled temperatures.

Ours doesn’t. It sits on the stove top. Makes great rice, etc.

Trying to get myself riled up over the Tax Bill and failing. I fully expected them to do to this, and, while we’re in a tax bracket that should benefit from the bill (marginally), living in California reduces our projected benefit from about $5K to less than $2K.

Right now, I’m hoping that, in their haste, the Republicans made a grammatical error that they missed, and instead of fucking over Blue States, they actually gave us a better benefit from the bill. Wouldn’t that be sweet?

Dr Lizardo  Dec 20, 2017 • 8:39:54am

OT, but here’s a question to ponder (if you’re a sci-fi fan):

A couple of years back, there was a fan film called Star Trek: Prelude to Axanar; it was a short flick, about 20 minutes long, with pretty decent production values (especially for a fan film). It takes place in the original Star Trek continuity, about 20 years before ST:TOS.

Instead of suing the makers of this fan film, why the hell didn’t Paramount/CBS see this for what it was? A proof of concept, and a pretty solid I’d say. They could’ve made a series, and probably one hell of a series at that, about the four-year Klingon/Federation war.

I’ve seen Star Trek Discovery and it’s……..well, it’s OK in a ‘meh’ sort of way, but to be honest, Prelude to Axanar would’ve worked better. Perhaps what Paramount/CBS should’ve done is given these folks 1) a real production budget, and 2) some degree of creative control, and let them have at it.

Oh…..and put it on broadcast, in prime time, not on “CBS All Access” or whatever they call it.

re: #298 William Lewis

Nothing wrong with one of those that is kept clean, maintained (safety valve, seal, etc) properly and used correctly. For someone who is not as good a cook as VB, the Instant Pot is like this but better. The simplicity of many of the recipes, the more fool proof operation, and multi-use options (This gift replaces both my slow cooker & my rice cooker.) make it a good thing for other people. I don’t know if VB would get as much out of it as someone like me though if she can teach her husband how to put a brisket into it and have a hot supper ready when she gets home? Even if only couple of times a month, that might make it worth while.

I use my IP almost daily. For instance, last night I got a craving for deviled eggs. Plopped some eggs in the steamer basket, set for 5 minutes. Done! Added bonus, eggs are ALWAYS easy to peel. Making red beans ‘n’ rice with smoked sausage tonight. I also use the saute setting for stuff like sauces and even scrambled eggs. Pot is so easy to clean.

Cons: I do not like the slow cook option in the IP at all. It doesn’t come to heat throughout as well and the bottom tends to burn. I think it’s the stainless insert. Don’t toss your slow cooker. I’ve tried doing cakes and brownies with an insert thingie but have not enjoyed the results. Haven’t tried a cheesecake.

Not sun fun fact: Paramount and CBS actually got so pissed about Axanar that they sued the creators and won.

As a result, there are now draconian restrictions on ST fan films, including that they have no more than two parts with a total combined runtime of 30 minutes or less.

I live in a Blue State, and we take the mortgage interest deduction, the State Income Tax deduction, and the Property Tax deduction. It’s possible that our total tax bill will rise.

If we had a Democratic Administration and Congress, and that tax increase was going to fund expanded Medicaid, or infrastructure spending, or some other useful thing, I’d be okay with my taxes rising a bit. But to have my taxes go up to fund tax cuts for corporations already awash in extra cash, or to reduce the estate tax paid by people who fell out of the right twat, or to transfer more money to those low wage shitholes like West Virginia that don’t pay their own bills? Fuck that noise.

Fair enough; copyright infringement.

Yeah, Discovery is…..well, odd - yeah, the spore drive had me scratching my head as did the tardigrade. Seeing as how Discovery takes place before the events of ST:TOS I gotta wonder…..did the spore drive thingamabob not pan out? Because it sure seems a lot faster than plain ol’ warp drive.

Lubbock makes the Big Time again:

Texas restaurant under fire for ‘racist’ vintage neon sign

A restaurant in Texas is facing backlash after a photo of a sign posted in one of its rooms went viral on social media. The vintage neon sign at Cook’s Garage in Lubbock features a caricature of an African-American man with “Coon Chicken Inn,” written across his teeth. Many are demanding the sign’s removal, calling it racist in comments circulating via social media and Yelp.

According to KCBD, a local MSNBC affiliate in Texas, the issue arose after a person attended a holiday party at Cook’s Garage and later posted a photo of the sign to Facebook. Owners of the restaurant responded to the complaint by writing back: “We did not put this sign up to be derogatory, racist or to offend anyone. This is part of Americana History… just like everything else hung in our collection and buildings.”

Democrats may not like Republicans but they would never sabotage red states for the simple reason of not everyone in a red state being an asshole yourself included and many children too. But as said, liberalism is about making government work for the benefit of citizenry and it doesn’t matter if they’re in a bright blue city or a bright red town in the middle of nowhere.

It’s not on NetFlix here because no one would pay for a CBS subscription if it was. I don’t think the CBS pay service is going to survive. They need several really good exclusive shows to do so, and may fail even then, since people resent needing a new service for a few shows, and will ignore it or torrent it.

It isn’t on Netflix in the US, even though Netflix funded it. Since I pay for Netflix there is no way I will pay for a CBS subscription as well and pay for the damn series twice. Also, I was unimpressed with the first freebie episode.

Wow; I didn’t know that. Yeah, it’s available on Netflix here in Europe.

If it’s any consolation, there’s no Godzilla films on Netflix Europe, which is exceedingly sad.

I am actually a little surprised they picked it up for a second season. I didn’t expect enough people to shell out the cash for cbs all access to justify it. In general SciFi shows have pretty high production costs. I certainly wasn’t impressed enough by the free episode to justify another monthly subscription.

It’s on Space here (like SyFy). I don’t pay extra for it. I wouldn’t.

I have a Futura pressure cooker, which is great. Pressure cookers do not have a timer and the pressure can only be adjusted by adjusting the burner flame on the stove.

I also have a slow cooker and a rice steamer.

Should I buy an instant pot?

The current electric pressure cookers (mine is actually a Cosori) also can cook rice and slow cook, so you could save some space by getting rid of the other devices. I mostly use mine for soup and stew, and it really is good and fast.

It’s not on NetFlix here because no one would pay for a CBS subscription if it was. I don’t think the CBS pay service is going to survive. They need several really good exclusive shows to do so, and may fail even then, since people resent needing a new service for a few shows, and will ignore it or torrent it.

They should have continued Person of Interest. That would have brought in subscribers. But they kilt it. They kilt it dead.

2) Even if we manage to get this, it’s almost only a matter of time before the electorate gets its usual amnesia, pretends Dems are to blame for all ills yet again and give the GOP insurmountable majorities again to fix ‘the Democrat’s problems’.

The problem with jumping on the restaurant for displaying what is a true piece of Americana jumps to the argument that many people responded to about the confederate statues. Put them up somewhere that is not public land. This is private property and they are displaying what is real history; unlike a confederate statue that was placed to advance racism.

As SK notes, putting in context in their restaurant with other racist signs would add historical relevance over just having it displayed. They may or may not (most probably not) be tonedeaf. Their business will suffer if enough people get annoyed, but that is their lot. 1A is what it is. Maybe they will take the complaints to heart and do something more appropriate with their historical objects. But, it’s Lubbox, so probably not.

We have an attending physician with a really unfortunate name. So much so, that the first time I encountered him I thought he was pulling my leg. “No really, what’s your name?” In my previous life there was a guy whose name was virtually lifted from a PA stunt from the movie Porky’s. I used to cringe asking for him on the phone. After a few years somebody finally changed his name on the letterhead to Michael.

re: #423 Colère Tueur de Lapin

The problem with jumping on the restaurant for displaying what is a true piece of Americana jumps to the argument that many people responded to about the confederate statues. Put them up somewhere that is not public land. This is private property and they are displaying what is real history; unlike a confederate statue that was placed to advance racism.

As SK notes, putting in context in their restaurant with other racist signs would add historical relevance over just having it displayed. They may or may not (most probably not) be tonedeaf. Their business will suffer if enough people get annoyed, but that is their lot. 1A is what it is. Maybe they will take the complaints to heart and do something more appropriate with their historical objects. But, it’s Lubbox, so probably not.

Yep, the place is probably full of people congratulating the owners for defying “political correctness.” it is not just Lubbock, it is on the south edge of Lubbock, with miles and miles of recently built mcmansions between it and anything resembling a diverse or integrated neighborhood. It is one of most heavily Republican areas in the country (90-95%, for real). The nearby zip code has the highest percentage of concealed carry holders in Texas. When I lived in Lubbock, I lived in Tech Terrace, the (mostly) upscale neighborhood near the Texas Tech campus. Anything south of Loop 289 (3 miles away and about 7 from the restaurant) was basically enemy territory.

Just the individual mandate. It’s not entirely clear how this will play out in the marketplace since the mandate never really brought as many people in as it was supposed to because the penalty was never really big enough. This will probably result in some insurers leaving the exchanges next year though. Also, those announcements will be happening about a month before the 2018 midterms so all the blame will fall directly on the GOP.

- combating the “media machine’ - the outright lying and way more subtle spin. this also goes to press conferences and press releases - following up, calling out, challenging and holding congresscritters to some semblance of the truth

- pig ignorant and happy about it (mostly) rural republicans

- clearly recognizing and identifying our “market” is with african americans (women!) , other minorities, and cities (urban / suburban). are there enough votes to turn a red state (or district) blue? what about that “every zip code” or district level approach?

I think the individual mandate’s importance was always overrated in actual practice.

That way, they’d go without insurance until they needed it, and then pile on when they’re sick and insurers can’t deny them, leading to a death spiral. In practice, people value security a lot and routinely overinsure themselves. It needs to be reinstated, but it’s not the end of Obamacare.

Koch head “fashion” design

This mode of dress seems to be common casual attire for the rich and filthy and apparently has been for a long time. Many years ago. I happened to meet one of the Amway co-founders at a decadent resort in Puerto Rico (I was there doing survey work on beach erosion). Two things struck me as odd about him: He had not one but two huge and obviously armed bodyguards with him and he was wearing a pair of trousers that were bright red on one side, the left I think, and bright yellow on the other. He looked like a clown. As for the 2 heavies, I didn’t know much about Amway at the time and thought it was strange that a detergent bigwig would need that kind of close protection.
I mean “filthy” literally by the way. A lot of these clowns make a point of not bathing regularly, as though this and their outrageous fashion choices were an attempt to rub the peasants’ noses in the fact that the “chosen” just do not have the same rules as everyone else. There are some zillionaire exceptions, of course. Mark Cuban dresses casually but is always perfectly turned out, and Nick Hanauer is notably businesslike.

One effect of the mandate was that it got people on the exchanges, where many of them found out they qualified for low, subsidized premiums or Medicaid. Now many of those people won’t go to the exchanges (especially since Trump is trying to keep them from even knowing when the enrollment window is), so they won’t get enrolled into affordable insurance. The Republicans are primarily screwing their own voters, because premiums will rise for people who make too much money to be subsidized, especially in rural areas. People who qualify for subsidies or Medicaid and get on the exchanges will do fine.

1) Who knows if/when we’ll get a Congress that will actually allow this, knowing the GOP’s penchant for intractable obstruction, and the media’s willingness to pretend it’s SOP when they scream bloody murder about one single Dem filibuster.

2) Even if we manage to get this, it’s almost only a matter of time before the electorate gets its usual amnesia, pretends Dems are to blame for all ills yet again and give the GOP insurmountable majorities again to fix ‘the Democrat’s problems’. Because that’s how it always seem to fucking work in this fucking country.

1. We have to keep up the fight through 2020 at a minimum.
2. We just need to solve the problems and not worry how people we can’t control will act.

A lot of rich people have more security than they need because they think it makes them look important. It’s also handy if you like to drink too much and do stupid shit, to keep press and even police at arm’s length.

It is true that after the Democrats have power and fix some of the problems the GOP creates, the GOP will regain power again to do more damage. But some progress sets in, as much as the GOP hates it. For example, they failed to repeal Obamacare, which will continue to insure millions of sick and low income Americans, and they will fail in their attempts to reform gut Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid because with their Senate majority reduced to 51, they just don’t have the votes (and probably didn’t even before Jones’ victory).

re: #536 Big Beautiful Door

One thing I will say though is that the phone calls have been relentless.Also, places like WalMart and Costco have actual humans parked at the front of stores to help people sign up. I’m in GA, and this was in place back in September. So there are people who took advantage of the help offered. Gives me a bit of hope.

Now all our plutocrats need to do is polish up the cloning and consciousness-downloading tech and they’ll be set like Pharaohs.

A Tennessee couple welcomed a baby girl who grew from an embryo that had been frozen for 24 years

24? Already too old for Roy Moore.
