Here is how to save a fortune in prescription drug costs. It DOES work.

By now most everyone knows that drug prices can vary widely even in the same area.

I have to take a prescribed drug that costs anywhere from $250 to $600.00 per month, for 30 pills, depending on where in town I buy it.

$850 to $1220 for 90 days.

And I have NO drug insurance.

Last month I got 30 day generic supply for 21.49.
and a 90 day supply at another store for 35.00

I used a online coupon from goodrx.com
Just printed it out and much to my surprise 2 different pharmacies accepted it.

Tomorrow I refill the 30 day script for 21.49.

Goodrx is not the only source for cheap drugs.

rxoutreach.org also can get me the drug ( via mail) for the same cheap prices. I have not tried them yet,
they are approved by the VIPPS Accredited Pharmacy list

rxoutreach.org requires some information, like income, you can punch that in the landing page to see if you qualify, before giving them any other info.
Their income limits are fairly high, so most people should qualify.

Using these coupons are sometimes cheaper than any insurance co-pay or deductible.
You may want to plug in your meds and see what the coupon price is.
You may find putting in your location gives a better price, but you can use the coupon without entering your zip code.

Trump In Collapse As Campaign Cancels Ads In Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina

The Trump campaign is showing signs of complete collapse as Donald Trump has abruptly canceled ad buys in the vital swing states of Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina.

Maggie Haberman of The New York Times tweeted:

Trump campaign is canceling hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising in Fla, NC, OH, possibly other states, per two buying sources.
ó Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) October 7, 2016

Only campaigns with money problems or that are losing cancel ads in swing states weeks before election day. A presidential campaign that wants to win doesnít do this. The ad cancellations in all three states are extremely odd because Trump is running within 5 points of Hillary Clinton in each of them.

Map Of All The WiFi Passwords At Airports Around The World

The map is updated frequently, so the chances are that most are correct. If you're planning a trip soon, just click on the airport of your choice on the map below to see all your options.
The map will give you specific directions on where to sit to best access the Wi-Fi connection. Many of the connections listed are for frequent flier lounges, but even us lowly peasants can access them if we know the password. It'll also give you useful hints on how to get around paywalls and extend free limited time WiFi indefinitely.


Seriously, what is with these guys in this Trump photo?

Does Trump only want to hire bald guys, to make his hair look good?
Why are there so many Republican guys doing the Voldemort chrome dome look? Is it a sign of a secret society?

The Atlantic has endorsed only three presidential candidates in 159 years.

Abraham Lincoln (1860) and Lyndon B. Johnson (1964) were the first two.

Here is what they say about the 3rd.

Today, our position is similar to the one in which The Atlanticís editors found themselves in 1964. We are impressed by many of the qualities of the Democratic Partyís nominee for president, even as we are exasperated by others, but we are mainly concerned with the Republican Partyís nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency.

These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazineís founding, to endorse a candidate for president. Hillary Rodham Clinton has more than earned, through her service to the country as first lady, as a senator from New York, and as secretary of state, the right to be taken seriously as a White House contender. She has flaws (some legitimately troubling, some exaggerated by her opponents), but she is among the most prepared candidates ever to seek the presidency. We are confident that she understands the role of the United States in the world; we have no doubt that she will apply herself assiduously to the problems confronting this country; and she has demonstrated an aptitude for analysis and hard work.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, has no record of public service and no qualifications for public office. His affect is that of an infomercial huckster; he traffics in conspiracy theories and racist invective; he is appallingly sexist; he is erratic, secretive, and xenophobic; he expresses admiration for authoritarian rulers, and evinces authoritarian tendencies himself. He is easily goaded, a poor quality for someone seeking control of Americaís nuclear arsenal. He is an enemy of fact-based discourse; he is ignorant of, and indifferent to, the Constitution; he appears not to read.

Authorities refuse to act after group of boys from Arkansas High torture baby goat.

Now there is a petition to get authorities to act.
and good news, the goat has been rescued from its abusive owner.

On September 10, 2016 a group of boys from Fayetteville Arkansas High school rented a baby goat from a friend of theirs for $10.
The goat, Grace, was rented as entertainment for their party. Videos surfaced of one boy holding Grace while another boy smashed a full can of beer on her head to bust it open, and then chugged the beer. The others cheered on. Another video shows them around a table in the back yard talking about renting her for $10 as she cowered in a corner. Several students have reported that the next day at school, several of the boys bragged about how they dragged her with a rope, held her down and forced her to drink beer and eat cigarettes until she started convulsing.

A rescue in New Jersey was able to get the baby goat:
Grace was immediately seen by our vet, who said she was emaciated. She has scratches in both eyes causing them to ooze down both sides of her face, she is coughing, sneezing, wheezing and has an upper respiratory infection. She is covered in lice and in very poor condition. She is scared and traumatized.

More information at the link ( Change.org) and a petition to get authorities to act, to teach these kids animal abuse and torture is NOT ok.

btw...I found this on the Twitter site of Alan Cumming (Eli Gold, on the Good Wife)

Trump has invested as much as $1 million in the company building the Dakota Access Pipeline,

Trump has deep financial and personnel ties to the pipeline, which would transport nearly 500,000 barrels of fracked oil per day from North Dakota to Illinois. The pipeline threatens the water supply and sacred lands of the Standing Rock Sioux, who have joined with dozens of tribes and other groups to stop the project.

While much of Trumpís finances remain a mystery, he did have to file a financial disclosure form when he declared his candidacy for president (despite his claims, this is not the same and does not provide the same level of transparency as a tax return). This disclosure form shows significant investments in the fossil fuel industry, and two of the fossil fuel companies Trump holds stock in are directly funding the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Trump disclosed between $500,000 and $1 million in investments in the primary builder of the pipeline, Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners. He also disclosed $50,000 to $100,000 in investments in Phillips 66, which would own one-quarter of the Dakota Access Pipeline once completed.

oil billionaire Harold Hamm......
Hamm is Trumpís energy adviser, campaign surrogate, and the CEO of the largest fracking company in the country, Continental Resources. Heís made billions of dollars drilling and fracking for oil in North Dakota, and it would be Continentalís oil that would flow through the Dakota Access Pipeline if completed.


Hamm sounds like Trump's Cheney.
