A friend of mine who knows that universal healthcare is a high-priority issue for me sent me a link to this article at The Intercept today about the yuge grassroots army supporting Bernie's new MFA bill.
Hillary Clinton is back with a vengeance, and no that is not the big surprise. What did come as a surprise was this nugget from a New Yorker article by a writer Clinton handpicked to tell her story, David Remnick.
Medicare for All is not single payer, so media or politicos using the term single-payer are wrong.
The insurance companies should be jumping at the bit for Medicare for all, a windfall bonanza of new Medigap plans that are profitable; in fact, competition in the Medigap market is fierce and healthy. Imagine 300 million paying the monthly premiums in such a program.
The proposed Medicare for All Act of 2017 is out. I received this email this morning, I'm sure some of you did as well. Interesting that some of the early key co-sponsors are projected candidates for the 2020 election. Another election revolving around the United States of the Free and Brave! health care system.
It only took roughly 18 months, but the Washington Post has decided to allow some facts to get in the way of slandering Bernie supporters.
The excellent article was written by Symone D. Sanders, the former national press secretary for Bernie Sanders.
Hayley Anthony is a transgender woman who helped design a new surgical technique for male to female gender affirmation surgery.
Dr. Jess Ting is director of surgery at the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery at Mount Sinai in New York City.
The World Socialist Web Site drops a load on the NYTs. I copy and pasted quite a bit, but there is a lot more. Go read it and sign the petition for them while you are there.
I called my credit union to ask how to secure my account after the Equifax Data Breach. News to me, they offer an additional level of security for phone call account access.
OK, so it appears the two duopoly political parties are going to make some kind of "compromise" on the health care issue which will include "bailing out" the insurance corporations.
The Maryland bar complaint was brought by Ty Clevenger, a lawyer who has pursued sanctions against Mrs. Clinton and her legal team in several venues and who is also pressing the FBI to release details of its investigation into the former top diplomat.
Earlier this week, Cant Stop The Macedonia Signal posted an essay asking Florida members to check in after hurricane Irma. I suspect we may not hear from all right away as much of Florida experienced power outages. I am a native Floridian, having lived all but the first two years of my life in the state. I take hurricanes very seriously although my home town where I grew up, St. Pete has been spared from a major hit since 1921.
'I Am Done With Being a Candidate.' Hillary Clinton Rules Out Another Campaign
Hillary Clinton says she's ruled out another run for office, but you don't expect her to leave the political stage entirely.
"As an active politician, it's over," Clinton told Jane Pauley in a Sunday interview on CBS Sunday Morning. "I am done with being a candidate. But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake."
Kirsten Gillibrand and Susan Collins have filed an amendment to the NDAA that would delay implementation of the ban on transgender people serving in the military.
Action on the ban would be delayed until at least 60 days after SecDef Mattis finalizes his review and submits a report to Congress, which is expected to take us to spring of 2018.
The acrid smell of smoke still hung in the air from the pitched battle to the east. The struggle, which began over a week ago, continued with one side practicing the "scorched earth" policy we've come to loath.
A Meetup was called to bring together operatives from Area PNW, part of the larger worldwide secret organization Caucus 99%.
Back at the turn of the century, I became active on a forum called Conceptual Guerilla. It was run by Joe Lyles. Joe was a lawyer and in law school had briefly been a Republican. During this time, he was indoctrinated in a training program in which the right conducted operations to control the internet. However, Joe became disillusioned when he saw how much lying and deception was involved and realized that his conservative beliefs were entirely based upon falsehoods.
Clouds of Hypocrisy Surrounding the Storms and Fires
Did you hear T-rump this week in North Dakota? He's glad to have dirty tar sands oil flowing through a pipeline destined to leak. He's thrilled he got us out of the job killing Paris climate agreement. Then in the same speech admits we've had one disastrous hurricane and we're about to have another....and who knew North Dakota could have droughts? It reminds me of the tobacco execs denying that tobacco is addictive

The evidence is overwhelming and undeniable that climate is becoming increasingly variable and intense, and yet the US government will not allow mention of global warming? Talk about heads in the sand. You know they know. They're lying just like the tobacco execs to save their profit (and lose our habitable planet).
We don't have this anymore. It's not the same. Somehow, society changed from progressive racial acceptance and tolerance to apathetic ambivalence.
I think it was disco. I liked the Bee Gees, hell were they talented. But shit, they went too far. We all went too far and now look.
Maybe we'll have another chance.
This is what I liked, this is what I believed. This is what I still believe. It never left me. It never left many of us. It's waiting to be reborn.
I just saw this article about campaign finance and thought I'd share it here (just to put a pebble in your shoe. Oh, and this picture has nothing to do with the story, I just selected a humorous image from the image list ...)
Okay, I lied. I will not wrap up our view to our stellar neighbors in this essay. Because this time we have something special.
So, let’s get Sirius!
Sirius AB (binary star system--8.6 light years away)
