      She lives in a patriarchy that needs one more rubber stamp to run the table.

      Gore Vidal's United States of Amnesia is about to have a rerun, maybe.

      I don't think she should show up. Given, she'll always have trouble getting a job, and this is a mean spirited country today, being an intelligent, life time traumatized woman, she knows better and is trying to be patriotic, as she sees it.

      She passed a lie detector test, but so what.

      If not Mr. K., they'll find another patrician to take his place. This guy has become a known quantity, and there is no doubt what he's up to, so the only solution is to deal with this Court. Vote. Take over Congress. Impeach the bums.

          I wonder if these patriots would like what they see in the America they fought and died for. Trump and his lackeys have dishonored their legacy and have discarded everything they fought for.

              The GOP spent decades and billions destroying truth, trust, honor, competence and the gift to civilization of our heritage, never perfect but always better possibles.

              The time is now, the gauntlet is on the field, the races are tight but very winnable. We can take out the trash, end this madness.

              Don’t got into your pocket to find petty cash, look back on all the tax benefits all the favors all the gifts you have been graced and consider what it has cost us all now and future generations, put some back and let’s find a bettter way, together

                  If a person, say like me mocks religion, is it because like me, they are concerned with the power and faults of faith? or is because they are finding the cracks in the current political divide and pressing on open sores.

                  How about speech, fake news, healthcare, football knees, mommy state, welfare, urban culture, Christian values, Coke v Pepsi.

                  The right is willing to open up their core ideology to new principles and traditions as the partisan climate dictates, the left is more willing to diversify with people not partisanship.

                  The bots claim their territory- in the divide.

                  Am I wrong it thinking 'let they have it' we are so far away from conversation, it's not important. The country is at stake, if you personally want a dialog or debate about religion or culture or pork rinds v rap you can find one. What's important now is picking a side, can we at long last recognize there is no fair review of subjects, no evaluation on wide scale no weighing of facts.

                  This time, our time is about, as my favorite number 6 "The Prisoner" used to say:

                  "WHAT SIDE ARE YOU ON?"

                      Cartoon Roundup

                      Selected from POLITICO




                      NOTE: There were a couple of cartoons on POLITICO today that I did not include because I felt they trivialized sexual assault in general and the Kavanaugh controversy in particular. They struck me as tone deaf in the same way as the "joke" by Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) about Ruth Bader Ginsburg having been groped by Abraham Lincoln.

                          It's interesting how you mention the French Plan. If I may, allow me to describe the way it is done in Israel. There has been a system of HMO's that began in Mandatory days by the Social-Political organization of the Yishuv, the Jews of the Mandate. You paid a subscriber fee, and in turn you received the medical services. By the time the State was established there was an infrastructure that included clinics and hospitals that served the population of the Mandate. Once the State was established, the "political" side was loath to give up their regular income, and continued to maintain the HMOs , and received government subsidies to assist it. You were a member of on the "funds", and each fund had its own rules.

                          To move from one to the other was never easy, but there were those that did. Indeed, membership in one, or the other was one of ways the Labor Party kept people "loyal", after a fashion, and continued to be in power for over thirty years. It was one of those systems, where someone that was a member of "the other HMO" knew that his turn in the line in the Employment Bureau would not net him the "better positions", and in some cases, kept them form getting promotions at the workplace. Gradually, the Histadrut, the General Labor Union, revealed "leaks", its banks were found to be less than honest, subscriber contributions were used to promote the Labor Party during elections and other "interesting" features. It came to a head when one of leading figures in Bank HaPoalim, the financial institution that kept the Labor Party afloat committed suicide after he was alleged to have embezzled funds.

                          The fate to the "independent" aka government subsidized HMOs was sealed when the Likud, the opposition finally changed the system. All the HMO's were fully supported by the government by a taxation. You could move from one plan to the other without any penalties. It did result in some surcharges and co-pays that didn't exist previously, but hardly anything that was costly. In addition, it opened the possibility for the HMOs to proved Alternative Medical Services, such Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, and other forms of Complimentary Medical Services, Dental services, too, that were never covered by any HMO, ever.

                          Literally, all the medical services, Conventional, and Complimentary were covered by all the HMOs. Except for the very specific and special services, most medical costs are quite reasonable. I say, that I had both cataracts removed in a local hospital by the best specialist in the region at the cost, in dollars $US 25. I was treated for a heart procedure, for . . . $US 5. The other day, I was called in for an eye examination that I had been neglecting for a number of years, which cost me nothing at all. Granted the Complimentary Medical Services to cost something, but hardly as expensive as the same treatments would cost in the States--figure that a package of treatments that include Acupuncture, Tui Na (a Chinese from of Medical Massage), Naturopathy, Homeopathy, twenty or so in a package that costs $US 300, and the payments can be spread out over six months.

                          National Health in the States is possible, only if people stopped blathering away about "Socialized Medicine", and sat down and looking at the facts before them.

                          Apple Has Paid $22 Billion In Irish Back Taxes - Ireland Doesn't Want It.

                              It's not everyday you see the likes of this.

                              Ireland's government has collected almost $22 billion in back taxes from Apple, but it is putting the money in escrow as it fights a legal battle that would allow it to give the money back.

                              Needless to say, (but I'm going to anyway) Paschal Donohue is not the most popular politician in Ireland at the moment.
