      I know what it has meant for me, in the past, before blessed Obamacare: up to 7 hours on a gurney in the hallway, followed a few weeks later by a bill for $7,000.00. Out of pocket, because a middle-aged woman, self-employed, with pre-existing conditions, COULD NOT EVEN PURCHASE a health care insurance policy. At any price. Oh yeah, I โค Obamacare. The only thing the GOP has done well, naming a brilliant program after a brilliant man!! (and don't they regret it now… HaHaHA!!)

    Our county health department has partnered with the public libraries to hold enrollment events where people who need to sign up for a new policy or change their Obamacare insurance can get free help from a navigator. I made a stack of flyers and have been taking them to Portland’s new pot shops for distribution. Very receptive targets!

    Anyone knows what became of former RNC chair Michael Steele? He’s been MIA for quite some time now…

  8. November 7, 2015 at 9:07 pm

    As he should. If he can’t rely on the spineless Dems (including the current Presidential candidates) to tell the truth about the past 7 years, he has no choice but to go out and do so. Also, that’s probably the only way the Dem voters will actually be motivated enough to go to the polls with him not being on the ballot in 2016.

    Humor as an Effective Tool

    //……………………………

    But over the years, a lot of people have missed how often the President has used humor as a way of challenging his opponents. Some folks – like Edward-Isaac Dovere – seem to just be noticing that we have a Comedian-in-Chief. But I’m here to tell you that it’s been there all along.

    One of the first times I noticed this talent was when President Obama went to Nevada to stump for Harry Reid in 2010 – whose opponent at the time was Sharon Angle.

    Bringing this over with an addition.

    WHEW! Now that that is over*****GO VOLS!****** I can breathe and think about something else. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The Knox County Dems have been having a social on the First Friday of every month for the past 3 or 4 years. It was always at our headquarters and districts would take turns providing the food and serving as โ€˜hosts.โ€™ Sometimes they would be well attended, but usually it was a fairly small group unless we linked it with something else like meet the candidates. In the past year, a different district is hosting each month, finding a restaurant in that district. This month was my district. We got a room at a Mexican restaurant. Did an event noticification on Facebook, sent emails, etc. We only got responses from 25-28 people and a handful of โ€˜maybes.โ€™ Well, guess what? 50+ people and some of them had NEVER been to any eventโ€“the other socials, Truman Day or anything else! Folks mingled and met people from other districts. It was totally awesome!!!!!

    Just wanted to share that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ****Also, talked with one of our district chairs about DWS. He feels like all of us–she needs to go and she needs to go NOW. I said this is the one area that I cannot phathom PO’s thinking. Why hasn’t he replaced her?!?!?! He says maybe he just doesn’t want to create that upheaval in the time he has left. The reason I don’t understand him on this topic: He always thinks long-term and big picture. He wants to preserve his legacy and get as many Dems elected as possible. With her still in place at the DNC, I am fearful of those two things happening or happening to the extent they could if there was a strong leader in that position; someone who has a long-term strategy for developing candidates at all levels, providing the support for them to win, grow the party, etc. Those things are not going to happen with DWS at the DNC. Come on, PO, please replace her!!

        There was always a good chance her rethug underpinnings would take control. I’m frankly disgusted and horrified by her, and asking that she be primaried. But very little hope that will happen. Her father has lots of rwnj buddies who contribute, and also Hawaii’s voters tend to be loyal. Plus the whole vet thing. I’ve written to her multiple times with no reply–clearly she doesn’t need the likes of me.

      Your event sounds great – I gather the restaurant coped with the overload – I’ve been to a few who would have turned folks away.

    • November 7, 2015 at 10:34 pm

      I find it odd that the same people pressuring PBO to get rid of DWS are pressuring PBO supporters to accept HRC as the Dem nominee. The two things are not compatible – HRC absolutely NEEDS DWS to be chair – in order for her to gain the nomination and have a chance at beating the GOP. No other chair would be so committed to getting HRC elected than DWS has been. The minute DWS gets fired, HRC is in trouble. Just letting y’all know this….

      DWS is a symptom of everything that is WRONG with the Democratic party. She is not the cause. The Dems lost in 2010 – DWS was not the chair at that time. Al Gore and John Kerry both lost the Presidency to this loser GWB…DWS was not the chair. PBO probably appointed her because there was no other Dem willing to do the job. His hands were tied. And for a while she did okay – the Dems did well in 2012 (with PBO on the ballot) and 2013 (with PBO’s coalition still activated for the Dem candidates). But 2014 and 2015 were a different matter – because the DNC was more invested in the protecting the 2016 Presidential candidate – i.e., HRC, and using the midterm to test her popularity among voters than defending PBO and bringing out his coalition.

    It will be next to impossible for PBO to let DW Schultz go at this stage now that we are into the election season but I plan to appeal to Valerie Jarrett, David Plouffe and David Axelrod every chance I get to get her to engage in a 50 state strategy that nationalizes this campaign. People don’t know that we are the party of the people because she doesn’t bother to educate them.

    My request to TOD is that you retweet these suggestions so that they can get high visibility

      Also, as I stated above – DWS is key to HRC’s nomination in the Dem primaries and shot at the Presidency. Do people realize that if PBO fires DWS, HRC will almost surely lose the nomination and then PBO will face immense and undeserved backlash?

    For this evening’s entertainment, here’s video footage of an apparent US naval missile test over the Los Angeles area (unclear where video was shot, but the videographer mentions the 405 freeway and The [San Fernando] Valley.

    NSFW language.

    Link to SDUnionTrib article says light was visible in AZ and NV. Think I may have been outside at this time, but didn’t see because my patio is northfacing.

    Here’s (UK RWNJ tabloid) Daily Mail article on the tests being conducted this week.

The nattering nabobs of the teevee media predicted a huge win for our own religious nutbags party of modi today morning just when the counting started for a state election. .Wwithin 3 hours, they had been pied with the opposition (collection of local parties) actually are winning the election in about 140 to 150 out 243 seats – the same margin the teevee idjits were predicting for modi’s party just 3 hours back. All the exit “polls” (which are banned during the 5 phases of election) predicted a bjp, (modi’s party) win or a very close, it’s a toss-up result. They all have eggs on their faces now.

    LOL. This is a dish against bjp which was literally campaigning with cows on their posters.

    modi’s luster (an ass kissing media buffed one, no less) has lost its sheen rather quickly in the last six months. The voters gave him and his party a massive mandate about 18 months back and they completely fucked it up with petty politics and fueling hindustic jingoism.

    @TodaysChanakya tweets: We sincerely apologise all our friends & well wishers for not able to predict Bihar. Congratulations to the winning alliance.

    Today’s Chanakya exit poll predicted the widest margin of win for the BJP alliance, forecasting just 83 seats for the Mahagatbandhan and 155 for the BJP plus allies.

    And the results are exact opposite of what this ‘pollster’ predicted.

      Good Evening Amk

      Are you happy or not so happy with these results?

      The โ€˜grand allianceโ€™ of JD(U), RJD and Congress on Sunday won 31 out of 39 seats, results for which were declared, in a clear indication of its marching ahead of the BJP-led NDA in Bihar elections.

      The NDA won eight of the 39 seats, with the BJP alone getting six seats and its allies LJP and HAM(S) one each.
      The JD(U) has bagged 15 seats and is ahead in 56 seats, while its alliance partner RJD won 11 and is leading in 69 constituencies. The Congress is leading in 20.

      The BJP is leading 48, LJP in two, RLSP two and HAM(S) one.

        The final count is likely to be around 178-180 to 58-59 against bjp. I am kinda happy that bjp lost rather than the ‘grand alliance’ won. Since modi was elected with a huge mandate about 18 months back, his party, instead concentrating on the governance issues they had campaigned on and won, back to its religious politics and incitement against muslims, christians and other minorities. Especially, the last 6 to 7 months have been horrible with the level of vile rhetoric spewed by his party against muslims that was not seen in India before.

        The development agenda he was proposing was going nowhere for want of clear cut goals and specifics. His rhetoric didn’t transform into policies and some of cabinet ministers were outright obnoxious when press and people started questioning his governance. There is plenty of internal bickering in his own party with many pissed off sidelined political heavyweights waiting for hi scalp. Though this was a state election, modi injected himself into the picture in a big way, he did over two dozen rallies in the state which no other PM has done before, and now the pundtwits are rightly claiming it is a clear cut mandate against him. This is a warning shot from the voters and hopefully he and his party won’t go the extreme right, as they are wont to, taking a totally wrong message from the voters. Otherwise, they will be kicked out enmasse in the next election.
