About Me

“History says, Don’t hope On this side of the grave, But then, once in a lifetime The longed-for tidal wave Of justice can rise up, And hope and history rhyme”

Hubs signed the papers on a new job yesterday!!!! And we paid our daughters tuition. Thank God.

He had two good offers in the end. We were unemployed for 22 days (second offer came in on Saturday). I don't know how people survive months or even (in my brother's case almost two years) of unemployment. I felt embarrassed that I whined about it when so many have it so much worse. The new job pays more than the one he lost. We will move to Cleveland as an hour is just too long to commute long term. The job is in Cuyahoga Heights if any DU'ers can recommend a good neighborhood or suburb, I would love to have some advice. We go up to Cleveland quite often and really like the city.

Hubs got a job offer today...a good one...about three hours away...means a move,

but no we will not have to live in my sister's basement! There may be another coming in tomorrow...he was told he didn't get one job he applied for yesterday so we were bummed...three interviews...and no job. But today, I am doing the happy dance!

Before-tackling-single-payer-save save Obamacare By E.J. Dionne Jr.

"The latest repeal bill is an offering from Republican Sens. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (La.) that would tear apart the existing system and replace it with block grants to the states. Block grants — flows of money for broad purposes with few strings attached — are a patented way to evade hard policy choices. All the tough decisions are kicked down to state capitals, usually with too little money to achieve the ends the block grant is supposed to realize...Because Graham and Cassidy are civil interlocutors and have sounded more reasonable than many of their Republican colleagues in talking about health care, there is an unexamined assumption that their proposal must be more sensible than other approaches to repeal...in certain respects, it’s even worse than earlier repeal measures, which at least kept some of the structure of Obamacare’s subsidies in place. This bill would simply blow them up.Before supporters of universal health coverage get all wrapped up debating a single-payer system, they need to focus on a dire threat to the Affordable Care Act likely to come up for a vote in the Senate before the end of the month."

We need to save the ACA and stop talking about a bill which is essentially an ACA repeal bill.

Republicans make new push to repeal Obamacare...this is really awful.

People kicked off of Medicaid and millions left with nothing in the coming years...Why are we even talking about single payer? If we lose the ACA...we will never achieve universal health care. Thousands will die...in light of this new repeal effort which may succeed, we have to ask ourselves was now the best time to introduce single payer?


For All who didn't support Hillary Clinton in the general...who complained about her on various

websites and maybe even at the end voted for her grudgingly after turning others against her or perhaps voted for Stein...consider DACA and the suffering that will happen. You helped bring this about. But don't you know the parties are the same? (Sarcasm) Shame on you...oh and fuck Sarandon, Stein and Turner (no longer a Democrat as she has offered to support GOP candidates). Enjoy your privilege.
