I wrote this on fb today


Iíve been thinking about the changes this time might bring

Maybe we learn that we donít need so many things

Maybe we learn itís important to make the things we need close by

Maybe we learn to take care of each other and our earth

Maybe we cook and garden more, and get out to experience nature

I hope we take to heart how important it is to have health care and a functioning government

I'm a middle aged white woman born and raised in California

I was Bernie in 2016 for the ideas

Of course I voted for Hillary in the general and was pissed at how she got screwed. I was also thrilled to finally have a woman to vote for that office.

My feeling this time was that Iím tired of old white men being in charge and I wanted a woman.

The double standard applied to our female candidates infuriates me. My own father told me Kamala was too angry. I had to explain to him that sheís tough and women our age had to be to get a little respect in this old manís world.

I love Kamala when sheís kicking ass but my heart belonged to Warren and I voted for her even though it was clear she wasnít going to win.

Now I lean Biden because I think heís a much better manager and thatís what weíre going to need.

My 37 cents, I donít think Iím alone here...

I voted for Warren last week


So I donít feel pressed to make a decision but...

I surprise myself by leaning Biden now when I prefer the ideas of the further left.

The reason is simply that I think he will be a better administrator and has a head start on repairing our relationships around the world.

Iím a pragmatist who also wants an important role for Liz and her plans, please...

That's before my time but...


I remember vividly 2004 when John Kerry was boring and long winded with his complicated ideas. I loved that about him and still do, as my choice below indicates

We were devastated in 2004, letís remember that one too

Dramatically Mathematically Incorrect

Is what Rachel said on Thursday.
I had to run it back and take note.

I love her when sheís containing anger.

Anyone else interested in building with shipping containers?

Our 15 year plan includes retirement and finding a couple acres to build our home with chickens, dogs and serious gardening

Iíve started making sketches for a 3 container camp we can live in for a few years and then later Airbnb.

Has anyone done anything like this?

More:

Incentives for hospitals to go non profit

Amend the ACA to allow people to switch to the PO even if they have other access

A Dem Administration will of course support health care expansion rather than using public resources to fight it in court

I think MFA is the end goal


It seems to be a political loser right now though

I would start with a strong public option aka buy in to Medicare and a strong push on pharmaceutical costs.

Those two would put downward pressure on all premiums and eventually the private companies wonít even want to compete anymore

And there you have it...

Can I say something about health care?


The policy of whoever we nominate really doesnít matter.

The whole thing will have to be hashed out in Congress anyway.

The important thing is theyíre all headed in the right direction.

This is a debate for next year. Itís pointless right now.

Cool! Thanks for sharing


Iíll donate to that and share on Facebook too

Iím working up a theme about how if we can take the senate and the presidency we can have a Medicare option. Something about how if my premium were half Iíd have enough for a car payment. Economic stimulus big time. Suggestions on that are welcome...
