Lyrics:

ceilings, plaster
can’t you just make it move faster?
lovely to be sitting here with you you’re kinda cute but it’s

raining, harder
my shoes are now full of water
lovely to be rained on with you it’s kinda cute but it’s

so short
then you’re driving me home
and i don’t want to leave but i have to go
you kiss me in your car and it feels like the start of a movie i’ve seen before
before

bed sheets, no clothes
touch me like nobody else does lovely to just lay here with you
you’re kinda cute and I

would say all of this
but i don’t wanna ruin the moment
lovely to sit between comfort and chaos

but it’s over
then you’re driving me home
and it kind of comes out as i get up to go
you kiss me in your car and it feels like the start of a movie i’ve seen before

but it’s not real
and you don’t exist
and i can’t recall the last time i was kissed
it hits me in the car and it feels like the end of a movie i’ve seen before before

Republicans are so desperate to deny Democrats a win, they’re willing to literally kill people. This is where we’re at: One party will stop at nothing, even murder, to deny their opponents any political success.

A general comment regarding Vote-a-rama: I believe every potential amendment to the Inflation Reduction Act that is beneficial to the country has to be voted down because otherwise the legislation cannot pass through reconciliation but requires 60 votes which it can never get with this Senate.

They are eager to kill people who are minorities or poor, no matter what. Recall that when they were a majority, they tried to repeal the ACA, a commitment they had made to their constituents for years. Their supporters share these objectives.

I see this in the replies talking about Biden rescinding a rule Trump put in place that would have capped insulin rates for some under some situations. Anyone else know about this? policymed.com

re: #7 Belafon

Now we’re up here!

“…As for the claim that Trump’s order would have lowered insulin prices, that’s true, but only for low-income patients of Federally Qualified Health Centers.

FQHCs are community clinics that receive government funding to help vulnerable populations. They’re eligible for government-negotiated discounts on certain drugs, including insulin.

Trump’s order would have prevented FQHCs from charging patients within certain income brackets - those making less than 350% of the federal poverty line - more for insulin than the discounted price paid by the clinic, plus a small administrative fee.

But only about 1 in 11 Americans use FQHCs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Primary Care, the agency that oversees them. In turn, only a fraction of those patients use insulin, and only a portion of those fall below the income threshold to qualify for the proposed discount. So Trump’s order would not have made insulin cheaper for most Americans.”

re: #274 HRH Stanley Sea

Big read for today.

Wow, wow, wow. That’s more like a book than an article, but so well researched and well written. Thanks for sharing it.

A few observations:

Stephen Miller and his wifey come across as the sleazy, creepy horrors that they are.

“Be Best” certainly stuck her neck out to help//

She (Nielsen) says she threatened to resign, and appealed for support to the first lady, Melania Trump, who would place a discouraging hand on her husband’s shoulder when Trump ranted about “turning it back on,” generally while watching Fox News.

And it was a little bit too indulgent of Bethany Christian Services—

Bethany Christian Services Is Fostering Migrant Kids. It Also Has a History of Coercive Adoptions.
Media outlets have largely overlooked the troubling record of Bethany, a well-connected powerhouse of the anti-choice movement, even as reporters have interviewed the agency’s leaders on the plight of migrant kids.

price of insulin…

$9.08 France

while the price of insulin is of some minor interest in France it wouldn’t matter if it were the same as the US, all medication for long term treatment is fully reimbursed by the social security and complementary insurance. In fact you usually don’t even have to pay, you just show the pharmacist your insurance card

Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act will make Biden one of the most legislatively successful presidents of the modern era. We once noted that the mismatch between the size of Biden’s ambitions and his margins in Congress made it seem like he was trying to pass a Rhinoceros through a garden hose. It ended up being more like a pony, but it’s still pretty impressive…”

“That’s a nearly $3.5 trillion agenda. The scope of the issues addressed is notable: the pandemic and its economic fallout, highways, bridges, broadband, rail, manufacturing, science, prescription drug prices, health insurance, climate change, deficit reduction and tax equity.”

“He also expanded NATO, passed a new gun safety law and passed a bill to address the effects of vets exposed to toxic burn pits. Five out of seven of these laws — all but the two biggies, the ARP and IRA — received significant Republican support.”

“There’s not much debate anymore over whether Biden has been a consequential president. In the long run, his first two years may be remembered as akin to LBJ when it comes to moving his agenda through Congress.”

Biden’s successes are a result of being a mature, seasoned leader. A leader who rose to the challenge. A leader who made a difference. A leader who let the process play out, even though it was messy and frustrating.

He understands how the job of president works. He know how to *be* president not just sit in the chair (or the fire truck) and pretend.

He didn’t balk. He didn’t bemoan. He didn’t insult or castigate. He got the job done. And without tweeting every five minutes looking for attention.

Dems have a solid record of results to run on. Republicans only have anger, hatred and lies, plus everything they voted against.

The Ironman - Alaska 2022 competition is in full swing. Started at 0600 this morning with a 2.4 mile swim. Currently most of the competitors are now in the bicycle portion of the event.

The race started this AM in a heavy downpour and its been raining off and on all morning. Current temp is 56F.

I’ve been listening to the local FD/EMT scanner and the wet roads along with the cool temps are causing havoc to the riders. Multiple calls for EMTs and ambulances for multiple crashes, severe injuries, and hypothermia. Some of the injuries sound very serious. We only have 5 full ambulances along with a couple of vans in town. Sounds like only one ambulance has been kept available for other local calls. They also have several “warming buses” for those who my be thinking of quitting.

In admiration of our photon harvesting lizards, my bud shot this hanging an expensive camera out of a small plane and nailed it. That’s Ellison Island. AKA, Lanai.

Lovely shot. Congratulate your friend for me.

Greetings from the gun-grabbing communist hellhole known as Canada! 😛

It’s great to be back after almost 5 years away.

A few observations:

1. Covid is still taken relatively seriously up here. Most people have been actively socially distancing in stores I’ve visited and some businesses are still moving hardcore enforcing masks.

2. I generally feel more relaxed in public because I know my odds of getting randomly shot are so much lower.

3. A lot of Canadians are wondering what the hell is happening in America these days.

No, I live in the world where not one single CO2 capture scheme has ever worked, and even if it does “work” we don’t really know what we’re going to do with the CO2 we capture. We sort of hope that sticking it down old oil wells will keep it “forever”.

Or we could use the replacement energy sources that work.

Some people tell me they’re more “expensive”. When they forget to add the price of destroying the environment to existing energy sources. Lots of bad accountancy out there.

Yes, not the best is good. But nobody has ever shown that CO2 capture is even better than what we have

Don’t forget that the Republicans don’t like government working since that goes against their constant mantra that is not working, is therefore a waste, and thus should be dismembered and gotten rid of.

That this immensely and disproportionally benefits their rich patrons is simply a side effect.

Medicare open enrollment starts October 15. Starting just before that, every supplemental plan in the world will be telling you why you should choose them. Good time to be shopping around.

It’s a good thing that the artist labeled the figure DeSantis, because it doesn’t look a thing like him. That caricature looks more like a three-way blending of Ronald Reagan, Dubya Bush, and Fox news anchor Bret Baier.

The government should just spin up a company to manufacture insulin and other out of patent drugs and provide them at cost, or cost +15%. All the handwriting about limiting how much insurance will for stuff is missing the bigger picture.
