I switched from Sling to Playstation Vue.

I like vue quite a bit from the start...more channels, sports, local news and my disabled sister-in-law could watch Good Morning America on the day it first aired (Hulu next day). But now they have added a grid...it took some work to figure out how it worked and there probably is stuff I don't know still, but I love it. You can go back days and watch shows you missed or just decided to look back for the hell of it. You can go forward and for seems like weeks and add movies. I added all the Christmas movies.You add shows with a + sign and then they are recorded...no limit either like sling for the DVR...and I have had less technical issues than Sling...although Sling had improved. And the added all three Hall Mark Channels. I love the mystery channel. It also turned out cheaper than Sling for what I wanted and way cheaper than cable.

GOP tax plan could bring big New Year's surprises/First of all it will be implemented on Jan. 1st.

"American taxpayers may get a jolt on New Year’s Day when new tax rules — including some sudden tax increases — take effect just days after Republicans hope to pass their overhaul and have it signed into law.

In an effort to juice the economy with tax cuts ahead of the midterm elections, the GOP is planning a Jan. 1 start date for its sweeping rewrite of the code.

But along with Republicans' much-advertised cuts in business and individual taxes, there would be tax increases as well, some of which have been barely debated.

Some people who sell their homes may find they owe thousands more in taxes; investors could pay more when they sell stocks; and undocumented immigrants could find themselves cut off from a popular child tax credit Republicans plan to expand.

Fringe benefits for workers such as subway passes and help with moving expenses will
likely no longer be deductible, which might prompt companies to drop them.

Vote NO on issue 2 in Ohio...it is written by rich ass pharmacy guy to swindle people.

It will make some drugs unavailable to folks on Medicaid and Medicare...as well as the ACA...it will increase the price of drugs tremendously for those with work insurance or some other form of private insurance.

Also...VOTE THE D, VOTE THE D, VOTE THE D, VOTE THE D, as if your life depends on it because it does.

Primary Error: Donna Brazile Mixed Up Two Different Clinton-DNC Agreements

Donna Brazile got it wrong period end of story...It is a pernicious conspiracy theory that the 16 primary was stolen. It was not.

"Donna Brazile reopened 2016 Democratic primary wounds yesterday by publishing a portion of her new book, Hacks: The Inside Story Of The Break Ins And Breakdowns at POLITICO. Although the usual suspects leaped on her claims that Hillary Clinton “control[ed] the party’s finances, strategy, and all the money raised” in a 2015 document, by the evening it became clear that Brazile had misrepresented the reality.

There is absolutely nothing in the Clinton campaign’s 2015 Joint Fundraising Agreement that gave her any such “control” — not even in the draft version of that document hacked by Russian intelligence and published by WikiLeaks.

Whereas Brazile claimed that Clinton wanted to “wield control of [DNC] operations” in 2015, she never assumed any such powers until June of 2016, when the primary race was over and she was the official nominee. As Brazile acknowledges, it is absolutely normal for the nominee to take control of the party apparatus at that point."
