    • March 23, 2015 at 9:41 am

      Thanks for posting, Meta. I do remember all those days leading to the passage of the ACA. I remember the actions of Traitor Joe Lieberman, because of whom, we didn’t have greater coverage. I remember those Blue Dogs, Yellow Dogs, those catholic Dems like Burt Tupac (whatever his name was), Blanche Lincoln, and Mary Landrieu who exhorted certain concessions because of their districts. I didn’t sleep that night because as you recall, this law passed in the night.

      It was because of the ACA that I began to watch C-Span. Our Nancy Pelosi was brilliant. I watched all the debates, the T-baggers’ Hell no moments, or “No you can’t” when they realized that, in spite of their obstruction and death panel languages, the law was “upon them”.

      Oh, I do remember and have fun and found memories.

    Since when a foreigner, a foreign-born was eligible to run for the presidency???

    Ted Cruz announces presidential run

    Hours ahead of an expected Monday morning announcement at Liberty University, Ted Cruz told supporters just after midnight that he was launching a White House bid. “I’m running for president, and I hope to earn your support!” he tweeted. Cruz becomes the first major presidential contender to formally declare himself a 2016 candidate.

      GM NCLB,

      Posted these last night (late east coast time), ICYMI.

      Until Labor Day 2015 is upon us, campaign “coverage” will mostly be about campaign donors and gossip/speculation.

      CBS radio news has the gall to say that the 2016 election is “a little over a year away” in their effort to promote the relevancy of #Campaign2016 now (despite the fact that 20 months is nearly two years away, not a little over a year away).

      Surprisingly, they do mention that Cruz was born in Canada.

  12. March 23, 2015 at 9:50 am

    Good morning everyone. I can’t believe it has been five years since the passing of the ACA. Many of us here worked very hard on getting it passed. I have the framed commemorative law signed by the President and someplace I have leftover postcards amongst my office supplies that I used to send tone Congress.

    Three African leaders have signed an initial deal to end a long-running dispute over the sharing of Nile waters and the building of Africa’s biggest hydroelectric dam, in Ethiopia.

    The leaders of Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan signed the agreement in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.

    Egypt has opposed the Great Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, saying it would worsen its water shortages.

    Ethiopia says the dam will give it a fairer share of Nile waters.

          Some in his home state might feel obliged to query his birthplace. I would assume conscripted students are forbidden to ask anything.

          When I was a student, not even going to class was mandatory. We were treated as intelligent adults, able to decide for ourselves where we should/should not be. I don’t think politicians were even allowed on campus – certainly not to campaign – maybe to open a building or whatever. I would have crawled under the bed or gone on a 5 mile hike rather than listen to someone like Cruz.

          Liberty U is a private institution, probably barely accredited, so they can set whatever rules they see fit — think Catholic schools and their school uniforms, etc.

          I’m gonna be a broken record on this, but MSM has invested too much money in too little news for #Campaign2016. Their clueless editors actually believe that 2008 (first since 1948 when a sitting VP didn’t run for POTUS) set a new standard in actual campaign news. What 2008 campaign did was elevate gossip to the level of news, so now MSM is spending millions to report on campaign donors, gossip and speculation.

          Along with #MarchMadness, Twitter is flooded with this irrelevancy now by MSM, so I’m ignoring most journos on Twitter now. Don’t have a TV, so don’t need to change the channel or click “off.”

    Over at BJ, there ia a regular poster, Richard Mayhew, who is an expert in insurance issues who has written several excellent posts on the ACA.

    Today is no exception as he honors the five year anniversary. Working in the insurance industry myself, a lot of what he posts is familiar to me but he made a comment today that was something I hadn’t thought about, but which is very true. We all hear about the 16.4 million people who have insurance now that didn’t before. Well, here is his take on that:

    Right now, HHS estimates roughly 16.4 million more people have health insurance today than they did on on 3/23/2010. This is an undercount as it neglects trend changes. Before PPACA was signed, the trend was for more people to become uninsured every year. If PPACa was not passed, we’re probably looking at 18 to 20 million more people without health insurance in that counterfactual universe compared to ours.

    http://www.balloon-juice.com/2015/03/23/still-a-big-biden-deal/#comment-5291110

    So, in the real world, it is even more than the 16.4 million. Thanks President Obama.

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Florida Rep. Patrick Murphy will announce his campaign Monday to seek the Senate seat expected to be left vacant by Marco Rubio’s likely presidential bid.

    The second-term Democrat — who won national exposure and the affection of many in his own party when he unseated firebrand tea party Rep. Allen West in 2012 — confirmed his candidacy to The Associated Press, making him the first to formalize a bid for the seat.

    We can’t even get the media to cover PBO events or police news conference on the killings of unarmed black men without interrupting them and talking over them, yet they are covering Ted Cruz live ……

    I am not watching…..

    • March 23, 2015 at 11:26 am

      The media is only interested in controversies, scandals, and presidential campaigns. Policy, governing, problem solving ? They find those things BORING.

      They want to have fun. They want “scoops”, and they want gossip.

      Because covering that is EASY. No work necessary. Not too much reading.

      Another important fact: they are privileged people. They have big salaries, wine and dine in Georgetown, party with political staff. They live a pretty insulate life. They don’t have any real understanding of what life is for the majority of americans. They know that “some” people have a difficult time, but they see that from their glass houses and they don’t GET IT. And THEY DON’T REALLY CARE.

      So they don’t judge politicians by the ideas they propose or their preoccupation for the well being of fellow americans. No. They judge politicians by their ability to play the game of politics. They’re much more interested by the power plays of the republican party than they are concerned by the radicalization of that party and the short and long term consequences for America.

      And lastly: since “politics” are their only focus, they are not impressed with honesty, integrity, intellectual brilliance, hard work, unselfishness, caring for others. If they were focussing on CHARACTER AND SUBSTANCE, they would have much more respect for President Obama, DESPITE the fact that they’re disappointed the President doesn’t flatter their ego. And boy, their coverage of this administration would be a lot more fair.

      I’m not against the principle that every voter should be identified. The problem is that if a government asks that, it has to make it EASY for people to obtain the necessary documents. And FREE.

      If you don’t do that, you just create disfranchisement of a whole lot of people. For example people of color, immigrants… who vote in majority for democrats.

      We all know that’s the objective of the republicans right now, don’t we ?

      If we look at history, no majority ever accepts to lose its status without fighting it. And the republican party has become the vehicle for that fight. Racial anxiety doesn’t originate only from the “black president”. It comes from the demographic changes. They “want their country back”, don’t they ? Many people have talked about the “cold civil war”; I think it’s a good way to portray the situation.

      I’m concerned that for the next decade, the tensions will continue to rise and the republican party will continue to exploit those tensions. Nothing good can come out of this. Especially in a country where access to guns is so easy.

      In the long term though, America will adapt. All people of good will will fight as hard as the haters. And the “third reconstruction” will fail.

    Good Morning Chips, Danny and TOD Family!! I found this in Liberal America and wanted to paste it here but it looks to long, well not really too long, but I think Chips should decide since it is quiet long. Being a white person myself and having lived, marched and protested 60’s,& 70’s There is this Poem I read this morning called. “My people: white people” written by Dana Kaiser-Davidson. I wanted to paste here. I have lived.the life of White privilege for more years than I care to share here.. but I will say I lived through the George Wallace years, The Selma years, and worked also with Cesar Chavez head of National Farm Workers Association dedicated his life to improving the treatment, pay and working conditions for farm workers. I have marched and protested in Alabama, Texas, California & Mississippi Almost been jailed and also was threatened with putting my kids in detention if I did not go home and stop protesting in Mississippi (only had 2 at that time ). Scary time. In Texas, even in 1963 they would not allow people of Color, Spanish, or orientals to sit anywhere except in the balcony of the theaters. Many of you are very familiar with all the restrictions placed on people of color because, like me, you lived it. Although I was born and raised in Alabama, lived upper middle class I would say, fortunately my parents and grandparents were kind and compassionate people and raised me to always respect others despite color of skin, religion, etc. My grandmother was Cherokee, married to Irish the other side was Irish. I wont go on with my history except to say no matter what trouble I could get into, I could very easily get out of, because I am fair skinned & green eyed. Just an example of that is once I had a car wreck in Texas heading to work. The roads there get very slippery when lightly wet by rain. I was in a hurry,might have been kinda speeding, maybe..and the car starting skidding, short story is I skidded into a government fence, busted it and broke a telephone pole in half. I called my friend who was at the time District Attorney, later District Judge and ask him to help. When I went to court the judge ask did anyone see this accident? I said No. He said case dismissed! I went hope glad I did not have to pay for all that.
    Since I have moved to Georgia. I have been called many names and you know I am sure what they are because I try to treat everyone equal and fair. In 72. when i moved here, it was worse than now. Since 2008 I have worked wth Democrats for Barack Obama. Last 4 years I was the ONLY white person in our group that showed up for meetings. I was Secretary, on the finance committee and other assigned duty’s lol Now more are showing up since Hillary will be running, they think. I don’t know why I am telling all this today other than I read this poem and wanted to paste it here. I’m not apologizing for being white, but do believe if I were any other color I would be DEAD. Since I cant keep my mouth shut when I see a wrong done to anyone. If I may I will now add the poem:

  42. March 23, 2015 at 11:08 am

    My people: white people” written by Dana Kaiser-Davidson.

    My people: white people
    Truth be told “we” never were a people, fragments of cultures that bought into privilege
    called whiteness, the invisible word
    I remember 10th grade family history project being more concerned about my place in the human race
    Bypassed cultural legacy for oneness, WE are all one my white people said
    Not a color thing, just people.

    My people: white people, Land of independent nuclear families
    Smothering ideals of perfection, Bottled up resentments, Blistering silences
    No such thing as mistakes or getting messy
    We keep quiet to our own addictions, then blame people of color for all things called bad
    poverty, drugs abuse, domestic violence, molestation……. perceived as isolated problems that white people are free from.

    My people: white people
    We say we are not racist, yet we are raised in a racist society
    Pass on stereotypes of what we think people of color are really like to our children
    We are fed half-truths and lies in history books
    We sit silently while children are made into puppets on T.V color
    White children learn diversity through Disney’s Pocahontas and Aladdin
    Stereotypes that my grandparents taught me filtered my own perceptions
    My people we have been hurt to think this separation does not chain our minds and hurt our souls

    As I mind my mind with forgiveness, I let go of shame for my own people
    I’ve deemed myself better than
    I’ve acted out the lies I’ve been told, believing I was never racist
    I sat in silence, guilt immobilized my mind
    Held my own spirit captive
    ego chatter categorized good and bad white people

    Heaven on earth looks like oneness
    With my own people
    What is the use of pretending I am not like those white people
    Who latch onto other cultures in order to cope with fragmented family histories

    My people
    From Irish, Scottish, English, German and unknown descent
    Carried legacies of hurts with them
    Pulled up from bootstraps laced in shoes stained in blood of slavery and genocide

    My people: white people
    Let’s love the hurts of forgotten legacies into wholeness
    Let’s forgive our forefathers and mothers as we forgive ourselves for the violence, silence, shame and separation that internalized racial superiority has caused
    For living in comfortable bubbles of safety
    For believing we were never racist
    Lets educate ourselves and other white people to histories ignored instead of asking people of color to be our teachers or explain the hurts they have faced

    My people: white people
    I vow to love you arms wide open as I love my baby niece
    All white people no matter what you’ve said, done, kept silent in the name of privilege
    You are good people
    It’s time to mourn the hurts we’ve afflicted as a people
    It’s time to grieve our separation from our own indigenous heritages
    each cultural legacy dropped in the name of survival

    It’s time to love our peoples, love ourselves
    consciously awaken from our legacy of racial smog
    Into awareness of our white privileges and culture
    Let us create pride in our people
    birthed in freedom, shared power, prosperity and tangible oneness with all people
    My people: white people, the spiritual revolution is calling you.

    there is nothing so awesome as having a science loving and science embracing President. If folks don’t get out and vote we will not be so lucky in 2016. I cannot see any repub pushing science in the White House, ever.
