I just was over checking the Obamacare calculator for a woman I just met

who has no insurance. I put in "Obamacare calculator' and the first few sites that say they are part of "Obamacare" wanted to know if the person had cancer, mental illness, Diabetes, Liver disease and other things and even if you were pregnant"

Can they add on extra costs for these things? Because I think if you go through the exchanges they don't ask you anything except if you smoke

I thought those things do not matter anymore!!! I finally found the Keiser Family calculator and that was helpful.

One of the started 'You yearly income' at $29.000.

It pisses me off that these companies are the first ones when you get to a google page about the AHC. I wish Google would take notice and put the actually government's page first

What happened to the first several episodes of "The Following" on Netflix?

I found season 3 but it started at a later episode. Now I just checked and season 3 is not there!


I've found it online a couple places but you have to pay for it. I'm already paying for Netflix which is where I watched the first 2 seasons!

Anyone know?

My conservative brother told me at dinner last night that the civil

war was a war of aggression against the south. I tend to get excited and he stayed cool and collected so I was the one that lost.

Any good pages that explain why the war was because of slavery and something to debunk what he said? He said his wife always said that but she is from N. Carolina

Thanks in advance

I have to paint the top of the shower. Can I use spray enamel?

I had to paint on little strip on top of the windows and I swear I get paint all over the place. It is like a held the full paint brush and did a hip hop dance all over the place!

So I have this enamel paint and I thought it would be a lot less messier.


A cool informative video about systemic racism. I learned things.

It is on Facebook and I don't know how else to link it.


His Holiness The Dalai Lama is under attack by extremist sect.


Its followers believe it can help them achieve serenity, but Buddhism itself is under assault from a toxic campaign against its spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, that, it is alleged, is being encouraged by the Chinese authorities.

The International Shugden Community, followers of a 300-year-old Buddhist sect, plans a series of protests against the exiled Tibetan leader before his visit to Britain this month, a week before he turns 80. ISC members have in the past disseminated images depicting the guru as a pig. They have described him as a “Muslim masquerading as a Buddhist” and compared him with Hitler. Now they plan to demonstrate when the Dalai Lama appears in Aldershot this month at a ceremony to remember victims of the Nepal earthquake. He is also reported to be appearing at the Glastonbury festival in a fortnight.

The UK protests are being organised by the New Kadampa Tradition, which emerged in the 1990s and now has nearly 50 centres in the UK promoting Shugden practices. In preparation for his visit, the ISC and its supporters have inundated Twitter with tens of thousands of anti- Dalai Lama tweets that have caused offence to mainstream Buddhists.

And concise video that explains why black Americans are not successful as whites

And explains all sort of other racial targeting that continues to this day.

This needs to be spread around.


If you haven't called your rep yet about fast track here is a simple way to do it

You don't even have to talk to anyone. (I think they have a robo caller do it for you)

It is the AFL-CIO https://actionnetwork.org/forms/tell-your-representative-vote-no-on-fast-track?sp_ref=126779013.48.14200.o.1.2&tag=c2c

Teen pregnancies way down in Hawaii after the stopped teaching abstinence


It's obvious but I'm glad there is an actual study to show the abstinent cheerleaders that their ideas are absurd.

This video seems like it has to be a hoax. It was on Fox and now going

all over the net. Apparently a 14 week old fetus, (or 3.5 month) is clapping its hands in the womb. It looks like the arms are way to long for a fetus of this age.
