    Happy Sunday everyone. Thinking of all those in the military who have lost loved ones, who are on active duty and in harm’s way today. May all be filled with a sense of peace, love and joy in some measure according to what they need.

    As crazy as this may sound, I’m not worried about Trump pressing the nuclear button. I don’t think the generals would allow such a calamity to take place. I think that there’s a tacit agreement between them to ignore Trump if he chooses to launch a first strike nuclear attack. Conversely, if Bush (yes I’m taking Iraq into account), Obama, or both Clintons would have ever found themselves in that situation, I think the generals would not have stood in there way simply because the generals would not have had any questions about their sanity.

        Original series in 1966: A Black woman, a bi-racial alien, a Russian (when we were in the midst of the Cold War), a Japanese pilot (only a generation from Pearl Harbor) and white folks fro the South, the Mid-west, and Scotland made up the cast. The shows featured all of the problems that we were, and sadly this are, grappling with today: racism, gender equality, weapons of mass destruction, etc. Amazing how so many racist want a whites only, white male dominated future when that shit barely exists today. They can take their racial anxiety, which is really the fear that they will be treated as they have treated the rest of us, and shove it up their rear ends.

      I hope the IC can put this together before irrevocable damage is done.

      Putin installs his puppet Trump, Trump does his bidding like clockwork.

      The GOP-controlled congress sits back and complies. Because of kompromat? Maybe, but also because they want the GOP prez in the White House to greenlight their destructive policies.

      It’s a race to see which of them can be taken out by the investigation before they do more damage.

    Angela Merkel has suggested Germany and Europe can no longer rely on the US under Donald Trump.

    Speaking at a campaign event held in a Bavarian beer tent, the German Chancellor emphasised the need for friendly relations with the US, Britain and Russia, but added: “We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands.”

    Ms Merkel said that as the traditional western alliance is threatened by the new US presidency and Brexit, “the times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over, as I have experienced in the past few days.”

    BY BACKING SAUDI ARABIA’S VISION OF THE MIDDLE EAST, TRUMP MAY BE SOWING THE SEEDS OF CONFLICT.

    Analysts say tensions that erupted just days after his speech were likely a consequence of his visit to Riyad.

      Affordable does not equate to quality. GOP “healthcare” will take us back to times when you don’t know what you have (or don’t have) until you need it.

      Ryan is trying to okie-dole people with his lies. We have to not just pay attention to what they say, but also what they *don’t* say.

      • May 29, 2017 at 5:27 am

        Indeed. As an insurance agent, with most of my clients on Covered CA (the CA Exchange), there’s even more that the CBO didn’t say, and should have.

        You don’t take 23MILLION+ customers away from a business and expect that business to do business as usual going forward. IFPs (individual & Family Plans) are mostly what the CBO was talking about, however, group (large & small) will be affected as well.

        Premiums will skyrocket. ALL OF THEM. To the point, Group premiums will become so cost-prohibitive, employers won’t be able to offer it as a benefit.

        This bill is the perfect way to take ALL health insurance away from everyone.

        How can the GOP not see that leaves the entire country in danger of a biological attack? Do they think their money will shield them? Viruses and bacteria don’t care how much is in your bank account.

        A large population with no access to healthcare is a giant National Security risk. Pretty sure Putin understand that, even though Paul Ryan is too stupid to understand how all insurance works.

        23 MILLION is beyond an understatement. It will be exponentially worse than before the ACA. And it was HORRID then.

        • May 29, 2017 at 6:45 am

          Of course they think their money will shield them. This goes beyond healthcare. They think they are shielded from gun violence so have no qualms about opposing common sense gun laws. They will have no problem paying for their children’s education so they create/gut bills that would make college more affordable; promote vouchers that would allow private/charter schools to be more selective, depriving education to those that need the most help. They don’t worry about feeding their families so food stamps are unnecessary.

          They are working to eliminate programs that they themselves may have used in the past because they want to limit access to the American Dream…I got it but I don’t want you to have it.

          It angers me to watch Paul Ryan, not just lying, but having a look of glee because of a so-called “win”. It’s okay for the 1% to make their millions and billions off the sweat of the working class and to profit off the needs (and wants) of poor and middle income Americans. But it’s outrageous — some of them consider it theft — to expect them to pay their fair share in taxes or to supplement costs to help provide for and take care of those in need…the same people they USE and ABUSE day in and day out to maintain their lifestyles.

      • May 31, 2017 at 7:31 pm

        Exactly. Rates are going to skyrocket to the point no one, not even employer groups, will be able to afford total shit care, let alone quality care.

    Cornered rats are so vicious that a pack of them can take down bigger animals. No matter the current noise about Jared, speculation about what Flynn may be telling the feds, and the shit show foreign trip, these people are not going to go down soon or easily. While we are waiting/hoping for justice t be meted out in a hopefully, timely fashion, we need to run for office, support others who do, register new voters, and get all of the to the polls for every election everywhere. We cannot rescue and perfect our nation if we do not have a seat at the table and a majority. Our people are running to do something, not to be something so I know that in the end, we will prevail. Insist, resist, and persist is the work of years.
