1. It's funny/sad that only a year ago, EW doing the right thing was mindblowing

 

A politician who spoke the truth, forthrightly, and acted on it.

Now we're all used to it. Hopefully at least now people are shocked by the disturbing behavior of most other politicians.

And, oh, if you could post EW stuff in the EW forum sometimes...

3. A lot more people are likely to see it in GD, Manny.

Speaking for myself, I don't much hang out in any of the "personality" forums.

5. Example of skimming: Medicare overhead 3% vs 30% for private health insur companies

 

And Medicare has a higher patient satisfaction rating than privates too.

6. I've said before

I was born & raised in this country, but it's not the same as the country I was born & raised in.

8. Lot to admire there.

I'm still 'Ready for Hillary' but I like EW a lot too. She's no slouch.

11. K&R

The honest truth, which I'm reminded of every day. No hope for the "American Dream," for our descendent's. Looks like our future will be mass chaos?

12. the Powell Memo went far--from the Baptists to the astrophysicists, nothing was the same

once the corpos felt their hold slipping with Rachel Carson and Operation Ranch Hand

14. That can't possibly be correct!

I'm told that millenials are lazy, self-serving brats intent on instant gratification who would just as rather complain than work hard for their gains...

We were also told to sit down and shut up during the Occupy Movement, by a few on the left as well...

The current situation is a stacked deck. Against US.

Ten years of employment at my current employer, and if I walked tommorrow I'd have nothing to show for it other than 10 years' service and a broken back.

Something's gotta give.

Soon.
