The Medicaid Gap

Medicaid Gap

A lot of people who have settled in various BLUE states and have through the natural course of life, become sick — become disabled — would love to move back home and closer to the families they once left to migrate toward their dreams and goals. But, disabled and dependent on their state to aid them through their darkest and most vulnerable times, they are trapped in their new homes because their former ones rest in RED states that have refused to accept Medicaid expansion, because black. They cannot leave the Democratic-led states that accept Medicaid funds that keep them taken care of and medicated.

And, millions were never fortunate enough to escape their former homes and only know desperation. Republican-led states that would rather their constituents suffer and die than be helped by a social safety net.

All because a black President offered this life-saving help. Republican Tea-halfwit governors and state legislators would rather their constituents suffer and die in poverty rather than accept help from an administration that dared lead them fronted by a black man.

This video is about the “Medicaid Gap.” It’s about the US states that have leaders who have left their poor and disabled in positions of desperation and suffering rather than accept what in essence is their own citizens’ money to alleviate it.

Clown Car Sputters On. Thanks a Lot, MSNBC

Republican Debate Clowns

The Republican debate spectacle is like crappy homemade porn shot by 7th graders using homeless actors with super-8 cameras. Crappy bing chiba boing boing music at what’s supposed to be a Bach opera. A bunch of Weeble Wobble wooden cartoons trying to be Pinocchio’s bitch and failing at even that.

The kid clown table in the super-loser low poll table (Graham, Santorum, Jindahl, Pataki) was a polling keyword and “OMG, Obama is a crazy man and Hillary is killing us with socialism” BS fearmongering, and not much more needs be said about it. I think it was best summed up with the way CNBC filled the open-air time that would normally have commercials. It was Benny Hill’s theme song on a loop.

Not sure if it was up to mirror the theme of the first half of the “debate,” or a theme song preview of round two. It amazes me anyone watching this travesty is taking a word of the vomit they’re spitting up seriously or god forbid, actually thinks any of these jokes has a chance in a general election. Geez, Pee Wee Herman could dress up in a lace nightie4 and a blue cape and run against their bestest, whitest hope and shame them in a landslide.

Hillary Clinton in Alabama to Call out GOP Governor, Legislature for Jim Crow Activism

Hillary Speaks in Alabama

Hillary Clinton was in Alabama. You are a dedicated servant of the people if you leave the civilized world to brave the neo-Jim Crow confederate South. Alabama has the worst civil rights voting record of any state in the union. And, this isn’t even figuring in their recent decision to close down almost all of the DMV offices anywhere near where African Americans live, so they cannot get the ID’s they now require to cast votes.

Hillary has always had a passion and strong record in support of civil rights and making democracy available to all Americans. She is in Alabama now to call out the State Legislature for their Jim Crow behavior and to raise money not for her Presidential campaign, but for the Alabama Democratic Conference — a group formed in the 1960’s to make sure African Americans were active in their electoral representation — an early massive GOTV campaign.

“It’s hard to believe we are back having this same debate about whether every American gets a chance to vote, This is a blast from the Jim Crow past.” she declared, raising her voice as the cheers grew louder.

George Soros Supports Civil Rights Justice in Louisiana

George SorosThere is a reason the Right Wing despises George Soros and a reason we Democrats on the Left revere him. (Sorry Bernie, you can’t demonize everyone just because they have money.)

Mr. Soros just donated $250K to the Louisiana Safety & Justice SuperPac that is supporting Attorney General candidate James E. Stewart.

Why would Soros do such a thing, and why does it give the Republican party fuel to add to their Soros hate machine? Did you watch last Sunday’s 60 Minutes? Maybe read the article in the New Yorker about Caddo Parish and their extremist Attorney General, Dale Cox (responsible for a travesty murder of an innocent man, Glenn Ford, convicted despite no evidence, saying that “the system did not fail Mr. Ford.”

Good luck, Mr. Stewart. And, may America FINALLY abolish the barbaric death penalty.

Thanks to Steven D’Mused for the video and the quote image.

NRA Crazy Gun Love PSA


The National Rifle Association (NRA) has shown that they are off-the-rails batsh** crazy. They’re not in support of their conned-dry members. They don’t support the 2nd Amendment, as they don’t even know what the 2nd Amendment is for.

Well-REGULATED, ya morons.

MILITIA, ya half-wit wannabe Nazis.

They support gun manufacturers in their drive to sell as much hazardous product as possible to as many people as possible, regardless of the reality that their product is killing hundreds of thousands of American citizens every year.

This latest NRA PSA is the cherry on the poison-cake.  Granted, it’s a parody with the brilliant Amy Schumer starring, courtesy Saturday Night Live, but be honest:  You would have believed it was an actual NRA PSA if I didn’t tell you otherwise.  Because this is EXACTLY the king of thing the NRA would use in one of their publicity campaigns.

Hive Bots, The Think Tank Right, and a Post-Primary Reality

Sanders vs ClintonHive Bots, The Think Tank Right, and a Post-Primary Reality

by John S Doe and Steven D’Mused

WASHINGTON, DC — Supporters of the Hillary Clinton for Prez Fam feel it every time the bots do their Bern-it-to-the-ground routine. We all know how base the moves are coming from fellow liberals. Destructive gaming from the clickety-clacks of our progressive bros and sisters stirring up disharmony and chaos at what is likely the most tenuous election cycles since the lead-up to the Civil War.

Troll HunterThe mis and disinformation that Karl Rove’s America Rising PAC distributes like they’re Satan’s publicity firm has fed and propped up the anti-Hillary campaign that’s run concurrently with the Republican Clown Car extravaganza. If you’re a fan of NBC’s the Blacklist, imagine two floors of the Sears Tower filled with seemingly endless cubicles filled with “Troll Hunters” analysts playing cyber ops.

The hive at America Rising (as well as their cousins at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and the Heritage Foundation) spend hundreds of millions of dollars shapes reality like it’s a dark commodity. They utilize software that allows each analyst to manage scores of Twitter and Facebook false-profiles simultaneously. They swarm in super-organized campaigns to influence popular opinion through the social media we’re all loyally addicted to. They have been campaigning hard against Hillary with these techniques for nearing a decade.

Their usurping of the Bernie for President campaign is an important aspect of it. Sanders isn’t more than a pawn on this game board, but he’s become a willing victim to it, poor guy. From the alliance between the ill-intended and ill-fated “Run Warren Run” campaign’s chief exec being hired by SandersCo; to the swarming Libertarian takeover / takedown seasoned through their prior decimation of the Occupy Wall Street movement is their playbook. It’s a surgical strike hidden boldly in plain sight. The right wing neoconservative super-brand is presented as a sequel pulp grindhouse dollar movie follow up to their past cons — their anti-heroes donning deep blue masks to inspire rot from within. America loves sequels and has an abominably short memory.

The Sanders campaign isn’t some right wing conspiracy any more than Trump’s campaign is a Clinton Foundation black op. But, it is targeting low-hanging young progressive idealist fruit and knocking them out the tree with planted false information through a business model that encourages it. Bernie isn’t in collusion with Rove, but his decentralized “organic grassroots” style of poor-man’s campaigning leaves the most fertile soil for this kind of campaign imaginable.

The drones in this conscripted gang of followers is custom-designed to be a cross between the old Naderites that took down Al Gore; and the Tea Party that was reared to be the same breed of activated extreme.

TeabaggersThat’s not to say “Bernie Bots” are Teabaggers. Different kinds of bread, they just rise with the same yeast. Strange, unsavory bedfellow wolves marching in sheep’s clothing. They’re not bad people. They’re just disillusioned progressives. They’re angry that in the Citizens United era of legalized, celebrated bribery, none of the people they trust to elect are fighting for their common good. I understand their angst and distrust.

Even if we don’t know exactly how, we know exactly that they’re being led on a path away from who Hillary Clinton really is by a right wing pied piper. We all know it, but we can’t communicate it in any kind of direct way they will allow themselves at this point to comprehend or allow into their stream of consciousness.

They have to right their own course.

They have to have space. When kids are figuring out where the edges of the box are and testing limits, you don’t crush their efforts. I told everyone I know in the first days of Hillary’s campaign that we shouldn’t answer the Sanders supporters’ slaps with bats to the noggin. We’re liberals — liberated. We’re kind. We’re the good ones. We should just post positive news and clips and historical factoids in homemade info-graphics. Stuff like that. When Hillary wins, we don’t want to have dishonored HER by causing strife in her living room.

The Bear JewI’m not preaching. I’m kind of a Bear Jew kind of negotiator in political forums. (So you know in case you don’t, the Bear Jew is a reference to a character in “Inglorious Bastards” who had a particular argument technique). I’m always reminding myself not to be a mid-brained caveman. Little room for idealism in politics. Treat others as you’d want done, because we’re all of us striving for the same ideals. WE should all take shelter under a safe tent in the storm a’coming.

Hillary will be our next POTUS. Help leave a place at the table for all people. Don’t push anyone away even if it would be pushing back.
