Bye bye, DU.

I'm headed out west, first to Spearfish Canyon, then Devil's Tower, then four days camping in Yellowstone National Park! The park opens Friday and we'll be there! Then two days in the Grand Tetons. Woo Hoo!!!!

I'll post pics when I return.

Love you all (yes, even Hillary supporters!).

We should tax and tax and tax and tax and tax the 1% ...

... until they're only fabulously wealthy.

I predict that tomorrow in Indiana, Hillary will do substantially better ...

... than the exit polls indicate she should.

The USA only has one fiscal problem: Lack of political will to tax those who have all the money.

Hillary could wrap up the primary next week.

If she'd just quit.

As elders who support Bernie Sanders, we urge today’s youth to rage against the machine, while our opposition tells them they must become cogs. Guess who they respect and listen to?


Thank you H2O Man.


Who do you want to be President?

30 Years? That's hilarious!

Ryan wants to end Obamacare cost protections for sick consumers

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan called on Wednesday for an end to Obamacare's financial protections for people with serious medical conditions, saying these consumers should beplaced in state high-risk pools.

In election-year remarks that could shed light on an expected Republican healthcare alternative, Ryan said existing federal policy that prevents insurers from charging sick people higher rates for health coverage has raised costs for healthy consumers while undermining choice and competition.

The rule, a cornerstone of President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, has been praised by patient advocates for providing access to medical care for people who previously could not afford private health insurance. The Affordable Care Act also bars insurers from excluding coverage for pre-existing conditions.
The magic solution to the problem, according to Ryan and the GOP, is "high risk pools", which simply means separating out the sickest, most expensive people in the country and dumping them into a separate program.

Ryan's plan suggests that insurance companies should only have to cover people who are not sick. Guess that would help with profit margins or something.

Why are we seeing polling places closed as "cost saving measures"? If we can't afford ...

... to educate our children, to heal our sick, to care for our elderly or fair elections, then just what the fuck is it the defense budget is defending???
