Yeah
I saw that part a couple of days ago, Putting his name in the mix was enough to set CNN off to the races. C Powell was a credible guy, but in 2003 all the bullet proof evidence smelled like crap.

It's "I got mine" (too bad about you)

[In Clance Thomases case it's "I got help through certain government rules" , but now I' m going to pull up the ladder behind me...]

Or a"I'm a self-made (usually) man".
"Nobody gave me a hand out, or help"

So what about your public roads, public schools, public libraries, public utilities, public transportation, improved weather forecasting through Science, NOAA, NASA,
safer foods through Govt food inspection etc, Etc , ETC....

"Taxes are what we pay for a civilized society"

Oh MA

Since I listen to Public Radio I do hear about stuff around our nation, international etc...
But when there was Air America Radio you really got to hear even more dedicated reports and call-ins from affected people in Red States who'd lost this and that help. They covered all the shit happening with Scott Walker among other austerity type Republicans.

Air America was still on I think earlier in Obama's Administration...
and parts of ACA need some tweaking (along w taking over-greedy Health Insurance companies to the woodshed which would stem the steep increase in hci premiums)...

....and omg, callers would tell how they finally were able to get coverage because of the subsidies, or the preexisting
conditions Ban was lifted, etc !?!

If you didn't hear there a report saying that many charities got more $ than usual for fear of what The Republicans are going to do.

Seriously, unless I manage to snag a job with a really good healthcare program, I'm fucked in regards to that. And I could really use it-I've got tooth issues I desperately need to get fixed, and with my family history of diabetes and cancer, it'd be nice to have that just in case something happens there down the line, too, along with general everyday healthcare needs.

But apparently the Republican Party doesn't give a shit about that. They just want to make their base who were ignorant enough to say things like, "Get your government hands off my Medicare" feel good instead.

(I've also heard about people who seem to think the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare are two different things. This is the level of thinking we have to put up with here.)

Of all the backwards things the Republican Party has done/believed in recent years, their stance on the healthcare issue is among the biggest things that pisses me off so much. I don't know how those people sleep at night.

Irving, there are plenty of people esp regarding health care here in The States who didn't vote for Trump, didn't vote for Jill, or Johnson, who are going to be very screwed if the RightWing Repugs & Conservatives are going to get their way.

Let alone Our Planet, Animals & Plants, and us with science held hostage to Human/Climate Change Deniers, or possibly even worse nuclear winter (Dear sweet Life forbid!)

Been warning people here for months
that this was the Federal Republican healthcare firestorm that was going to happen.

Oh, it's going to be an all out assault on the planet, absolutely. All those burdensome regulations on poor business.

All I can do is shrug at this point. I'm a diver, so I'm really going to miss the coral reefs, but I've done what I can do. Stupid people gonna be stupid.

Oh, diving...very cool! Full on tanks and all? Or snorkeling?
Used watch Jacques Costeau's TV show!

If I'm blessed enough get back to The Caribbean in the quieter clear turquoise, teal waters- snorkeling would be my speed!

Shhhh. We're just going to ignore that, 'cause it's Trump and he's a bull in a china shop and he'll get things done for the working class and stuff.

How appropriate was it that there was a Friday the 13th a week before the fire gets lit?

Where does insulting a civil rights hero fall on your scale of racism?

How about calling out a person for straight up being an ass. Man to man. You libs always see things through the skin color paradigm. Your obsessed. It's unhealthy for you future efforts.
