The President of the United States thinks health insurance costs $12 per year

Source: Think Progress

Snip


Earlier Wednesday, Trump also said that under the Senate’s (currently non-existent) health care plan, people would have better protections for pre-existing conditions than they did under the Affordable Care Act.


Other comments from Trump’s interview with the Times reveal that the president might not understand what health insurance is.
“Because you are basically saying from the moment the insurance, you’re 21 years old, you start working and you’re paying $12 a year for insurance,” Trump said, “and by the time you’re 70, you get a nice plan. Here’s something where you walk up and say, ‘I want my insurance.’”


The comment has mostly gotten flack for Trump’s comment that health insurance costs just $12 a month, but, at least for some people, he’s not actually wrong. There are people in the United States who are on Medicaid or receive large subsidies under the ACA who pay less than $12 a year for insurance.

any asparagus growers out there? I need advice

All the info I'm finding on line has advice for established beds. I need advice for my first year seedings. I have my bed in and the plants are about 6 inches tall. They keep falling over but seem to be sprouting new growth from the fallen over part. Is this what is supposed to happen?

Should I be propping them up? Should I leave them alone?

North Georgia mystery plant

[URL=.html][IMG][/IMG][/URL]


Greetings from Tucker.

I bought a house in Tucker last fall with a generous amount of fruit trees which is awesome. I even have some nectarines appearing.

Lots of raised beds ready for planting and tons of volunteer strawberries and raspberries Yay!

In all my days gardening I've never done so in this area. My most recent garden before now was in Sedona, AZ so you can imagine my delight in being able to grow some stuff that was never possible in that dry climate and rocky soil.

I won't go in to the ridiculous number of new things I'm trying but suffice it to say, I think I may have overdone my varieties but hey there is no try, only do.

In my yard at the base of several of the fruit trees all in a row, looking like they were planted on purpose by previous owner, is this crazy plant I've never seen before. Its like an iceberg, 90% of it is a thick white (on the inside) carrot shaped roots that are next to impossible to pull out. The roots go quite horizontal and are enormous. They break like a fresh carrot and smell a little bitter. I don't have the guts to try a taste.

It has pretty big (10-12 inch) leaves and little purple flowers. Its definitely a perennial. They all went through a hard hard freeze here at the beginning of the year and bounced back beautifully. They are pretty but the roots are something out of a sci fy movie.

If you cut them off at the top with a weed eater they seem to multiply.

Is it a weed? Is it going to take over my yard like bamboo? How far do the roots go? I'm trying to do a asparagus patch and they are perilously close (okay they are a few trying to catch hold in the patch but I'm getting them out little by little)

It doesn't seem to be setting fruit or vegi. WTF is it? Can I eat it? Can I compost it safely? Should it go straight to the landfill?

Help!









With a Hollywood Writers Strike Looming, Heres What to Know

Source: New York Times


MONICA ALMEIDA / THE NEW YORK TIMES
By BROOKS BARNES
APRIL 17, 2017
LOS ANGELES — The threat of a Hollywood strike is getting real.

On Wednesday, television and movie writers — roughly 12,000, all members of the Writers Guild of America — will begin voting on whether to authorize a walkout. The online vote will end on Monday. If members approve a strike, as they almost certainly will, and no pact with studios has been reached by May 1, fingers will stop typing and picketing will begin the next day.

A strike would have serious implications. When writers walked out a decade ago, the impasse cost the Los Angeles economy an estimated $2.5 billion. As production halted, income dried up not only for writers but also for set decorators, caterers, limo drivers and florists. Fans were not thrilled, either, as television schedules became a sea of reruns.

Longtime Hollywood power players — agents, studio executives, labor lawyers — put the chance at roughly 51 percent. But it changes by the day.

Tempers have cooled (a bit) over the past week, as negotiators for the Writers Guild and an organization that represents studios, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, have made progress on pay increases. But at least one radioactive issue remains unsettled: health care.

Long time Verde Valley residents in need

My good friend Arron Burnett was killed in a motorcycle accident on the Kūihelani Highway in Maui on Friday night.

In addition to the suffering his family is going through they are bearing the burden of making final arrangements with very few resources.

If you have a few extra bucks to spare, I'm making assurances they make it to the right place.
