This old bill could be the secret to affordable universal health care

quote [ In 2006, Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) introduced the AmeriCare Health Care Act. ]

This is the time...Although I don't see the Democrats having the combined guts to do it.

Why Are Millions of Citizens Not Registered to Vote?

quote [ A survey of the civically unengaged finds they lack interest, but outreach opportunities exist ]

1/2 of these people are unreachable and a lot don't have the mental capacity to vote. The other 1/2 are the biggest untapped voting block there is.

It comes down to this...

quote [ Senator Chris Murphy talks with Rachel Maddow about the Republican tactic to try to quickly push their health bill through hoping Americans won't notice, and the importance of public feedback, particularly to persuadable Republicans. ]

It takes three GOP no votes to stop this.
There is one definite no, Two leaning no, and a few worried about their own survival in states where they have taken the medicaid expansion.
It will come to a vote. It will either pass by 1 or lose by 6 to 8.

Another report card in from the pilot programs...and UBI is working as predicted.

quote [ Finnish citizens given universal basic income report lower stress levels and greater incentive to work

Participants receive €560 (£473) every month for two years and do not have to demonstrate that they are actively seeking work ]

This will have no effect on US politics. But it must be gratifying to those who have been pushing this to know... The damn thing works!

Frequency Beer Works, just north of Stockholm, has created a five per cent English bitter in honour of Roy Larner.

quote [ “Like an idiot,” he told The Sun, “I shouted back at them. I thought, ‘I need to take the p*** out of these b******s’.” ]

Sometimes when your drinking beer....shit happens.

I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt

quote [ “I’m growing increasingly concerned that the president will attempt to fire not only Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible obstruction of justice, but also Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who appointed Mueller,"

Sen. Dianne Feinstein ]

I wasn't convinced that there was fire under all this smoke...I am now.

I’ve covered Obamacare since day one. I’ve never seen lying and obstruction like this.

quote [ Congress is hiding the health care bill ]

In a normal world this would be considered political suicide. But since we have entered Bizzaro world I'm not sure about anything anymore ... this still has to be a long walk on a short plank.

Donald Trump’s secret isn’t that he lies. It’s that he crowds out the truth.

quote [ For the bullshitter, however, all these bets are off: he is neither on the side of the true nor on the side of the false. His eye is not on the facts at all, as the eyes of the honest man and of the liar are, except insofar as they may be pertinent to his interest in getting away with what he says. He does not care whether the things he says describe reality correctly. He just picks them out, or makes them up, to suit his purpose ]

Trump is still controlling the media.

Syrian state TV 'claims Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in an airstrike'

quote [ ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has reportedly been killed in Raqqa, Syria ]

Wonder if he is really dead this time. No conformation as of yet.
