I see access to health care as important as access to education. I don't have kids, why are my taxes going to pay for other children's education when they really don't appreciate it and don't do their homework.
Awww heck Tom, that's just the republican in you there. I keep wondering why all those protesters don't get a job myself. Maybe if they had done their homework......
This health care stuff is just all sorts of f'd up. Rates were skyrocketing before the reform crap. That's what made it such a hot thing......gotten worse...blah, blah.
Mr Big is right, bad word, especially to the Republicans. Medicare for all is also too 'socialized'. The problem the Republicans have is that obamacare is a conservative plan that includes coverage for all. For whatever reason, that want to destroy it and have made a promise to replace it with a better plan. They cannot come up with a plan that is as good or better unless it is either socialized or a copy of Obamacare. Rock/hardplace btw, i tend to agree with you here in many ways.

Question. Years ago you would blow air into the incapacitated person. Can't remember the exact ratio but 3-5 to start, 5-10 chest pumps, 2-3 breaths, chest pumps, breaths, and on.
How come the breathing part has gone away? Does getting the heart pumping again take care of that?

I'm not sure why in these discussions I don't hear more anger directed to the insurers/healthcare providers rather than the government.
Trust me, we are pissed at the insurers/healthcare providers. I think the anger is directed at Obamacare because it was shoved down our throats, made a law that you had to have it, took away the free market to go and get it, and passed while no one knew what was really in it.....and they even admitted not knowing what exactly was in it.
Insurance companies going bankrupt and pulling out of market areas? Are you serious? Yes, that is happening. That's pretty telling I think.
I used to have 6 people on my plan years ago. Been down to 4 for quite awhile and pay more than I ever did for 6. Looking like for 3 is going to be the same.

......... Iím not really clued in on the whole partisan in-fighting. Iím only looking at world level......
Dude, that's what so much of this is about in the end and what makes it so hard to sift through and yes, it is hard to pick apart the bs and not come off as if you are defending him. Not sure what to say about "world level" coverage but the stuff I have seen posted here has been very much of the same flavor we have to sift through. The more "nuance" there is in something shoots up a warning flag and makes it a bs alert and harder to swallow as truth at least in my mind.
I wonder the little Biden clip I posted if he is sincere or they are just biding their time and waiting for a meltdown. I kind of think he is sincere but I may just be naÔve.
Can someone take that stupid ass twitter away from him? He really is not doing himself any favors trying to sidestep anything with it at least from what I can see. He seems to be just stepping on mines he has set himself.
Were Comey and him really going back and forth live yesterday? Twitter post, question to Comey about it, answer from Comey, all in real time?
Oh my word. actually picking through the bs really doesn't have to come off as one is defending him. it is so bad and full of it that it needs to be picked apart regardless of what you think of him or not.

I had no clue you could just go out and buy one of those. It was used in PT to rehab my knee/atrophy years ago. Chiro has used one in the past as well with one of my sciatica episodes. One guy had one, the other didn't over a few year stretch and years ago. Once you settle in it's just wonderful. Seemed to help my leg get firing again for sure for the atrophy. Don't think it helped my sciatica overall other than it was bliss while it was going but knowing I can get one now I think I will and won't be limited to a few minutes a time or few a week.

Cool. Will be interesting to see the tweaking mods.
Every time I was out chasing carp and missed a cast last year because the fish was gone by the time I put my paddle down, grabbed my rod, and then loaded the line I thought about you and your "perfect fishing machine..." or (however that exactly went) comment about this thing. That light went off so bright when you said that it is still burning.

Too bad that part ain't a joke.

Cool map. I was looking at the Columbia drainage last year a little and didn't realize it was so damn big itself without the Snake. Even bigger looking now. It is a delicate operation. Peak runoff downstream is or can be a month ahead of upstream. Even if not that many miles between really. Spring weather, which is unpredictable kind of has the last say I think. Cool, warm, wet, dry. I and others I know scratch our heads some years. Last time there was this much or similar snow pack they waited too long to release so when they did have to, the downstream tributaries, uncontrollable by dams, were also at peak which just made a mess of the whole thing at least up in my neighborhood. Most of the dams for the Snake, or at least upstream of Treasure Valley are for irrigation and power generation is secondary if hydro is even there so reservoir storage and outflows are what's in mind. Farmers rule the release. Canal companies, etc. At least how I understand it and see how flows fluctuate through the year. Recreation has some input but really just kind of brushed to the side it seems as the water for crops does rule. The dams I am familiar with that generate power as their main use have reservoirs that are pretty constant and stable through the year for the most part and not wildly fluctuating like the water storage for irrigation reservoirs. So tough to get good fish habitat for such fluctuating reservoirs. Where some may spawn could be dry the next year or after they spawn. Bugs lay their eggs in the water then it's dry, all sorts but some do flourish and do rather well depending on the species. Just put Pike or Kokanee everywhere.......

Your snow pack upstream, at least in the entire Snake River drainage is epic. They are starting to empty already to make room. I don't think there is enough room for it either. I was quite surprised to see how full some stuff was a couple weeks ago and that they had waited so long to start increasing flows to make room.

Yesterday or today I think.
I got to like Biden actually.
I wondered if that was what they were after the whole time?
Bunch of dummys.
The 155 divisions of Trump widgets with each widget bringing in.....$really, really, lots, of, money.
I wonder how complicated all that is?
I wonder if there is good stuff there?
She also uses the British variant of behavior (behaviour) which leads me to suspect that the story is just total fiction.
but....I like it when I hear "behavior" in a Brit tongue....

........ If you watched that video you heard the story of an atheist Muslim.......
Is that like a Mexican Jew? Nigerian Buddhist? Hmmm, an atheist Muslim, a preacher, and a rabbi walk into a bar........
Boy, Penn has lost some weight, huh. He's such an interesting guy.
I wonder what Teller thinks?

The complaining is an embarrassment as well as the stupid tweets. The coverage has fueled the complaining which has fueled the tweets. It's jsut a stupid ass circle happening.
It is odd how the media has died off a little this week in regards to Boris and Natasha and all that horseshit that just kept getting fanned but doesn't really seem to have much going on with it. Who knows, maybe there will be but I wonder if there is something to Trump calling them out. Twitter might not have been the best place to shout "obama bugged me" but he did (maybe it was??), he called them out. Not that Obama ordered a wiretap on Trump or Trump tower so to say but.......if they were investigating interference in the election (dnc or Podesta hacks, etc) well, Trump and the GOP were part of the election, right? If they trying to find shit out..........they going to cover all the bases, right? I kind of doubt and also hope that Obama didn't "I want Trump tower bugged" and that IF it is true it is just part of that process, but I guess it starts and/or ends with him.
I guess Trump hasn't talked to the press all week....that's fine but anything regarding Russia (and Trump) has also seemed to kind of quieted down as well rather than been heated up. Kind of odd I think. Rather interesting as well to say the least.
I got no clue. Wait and see.......as with all of it.
I sure wish that alinsky guy could go away. he was mentioned a few years ago along with that book and I looked him up.........oh man.
I have always wondered how people could call Trump stupid or dumb or some of that other stuff. Same with Obama....
sex videos for blackmail? really? I just don't see how those could have stayed under wraps still if there were. just ain't no way. If there are......there some dead people out there already and not from Trump. Keeping that under wraps.....someone would have wanted to spill something like that already for any number of reasons as someone wanting to hold them back.

Damn. I'm usually pretty good at killing threads on the Zone. But I couldn't kill this one, not even with an A-10 Warthog video. BRRRRRRRRRRTTTTTT!!!!!
Hell, we got warthogs, that stupid ass honey badger, creature from black lagoon messing shit up, A10 and Pono agreeing (i have too...at times.......shhhhhhhh), Creek explaining he's drunk all the time, pdx quips, stoney saying no mas, stuff referred to from just about any media outlet you can think of and just all sorts and in the end really pretty civil and real tho it has had it's moments. Lots of good stuff here all over.
I ran across this today. I gotta post it somewhere........it's going here. Damn if it don't look like something he should have done.
back to your regularly scheduled show.
