Another outcome of GA 06...

I suspect Handel's victory slightly emboldened the Senate Leadership to release an "All or Nothing at All" anti ACA Health Bill to the public...clearly McConnell & Ryan don't fear consequences at the polls in 2018.  Make no mistake this is a bad bill that will deny healthcare to millions, force those who do have it to pay more for less coverage.  Nothing drives this save a nigh autistic devotion to the twin conservative myths of rugged individualism & small government...but the "debate" (if I can call it that) is largely driven chimerical ideological notions. A lot of people may well end up suffering intensely and needlessly because the leadership of this country can't deviate from their fixed hysterical notions about public policy, to the point where they literally deny there is any "debate"  at all to say nothing of grounds for compromise.
I don't know what else to tell any of you, the wrong people have too much power and are deaf to discussion, under these circumstances saving some radical alteration in the composition of congress likely the ACA will be repealed and a veritable "health care recession" will fall upon the American People...
And when it does, this blog will be a loud loud voice for high taxes and a single payer system, we may as well "go for broke" if this thing works out as I think it will.

A note on GA -06

I wanna take a moment to reach past all the gloaters and social media bullies and pay unashamed tribute to the democrats of Georgia's Sixth Congressional District, they fought this thing down to the last ballot, the last voter, maybe they didn't win but they sure as shit were not defeated last night.  I've passed thru a few heartbreakers of my own and it must be special disappointment to come so close in such a challenging district.
All I can advise is, Don't Listen to the Haters, they are all as useful as tits are to a bull, The Just always sleep easier when they know they have executed their Duty Come What May.

Mirror Imaging the Tactics of Your Opponents....

Especially when you have imputed vast and imaginary powers to said opponents, is almost always a bad idea and complete confession of impotence.

Hence James Hodgkinson shoots up a collection of GOP Congresspersons practicing for a Baseball Game and some Jobber in London tries to drive his car thru from Muslims exiting a Mosque.

It almost never works, especially when you consider the motives which are usually driven by rage, reaction formation, suppressed envy etc.

Thought for the Day

Forgive me if this is repetitive:
"We must be Equal to Our Times".

I do not expect our national nightmare to end any time soon, in fact in many ways things will get worse before they get better.  Nonetheless our progeny are depending on us to stand the watch with all the vigilance of FDR's Myrmidions or Abraham Lincoln's Dauntless Legions.  We live in a Free Republic, Republics are inherently self regenerating therefore we are collectively responsible for our own safety and our own betterment.

Jeff Sessions' Testamony Amounted to...

"I Probably Did Nothing Wrong, But If I Did, Then I Don't Remember It".

Is it me or does this entire vile rabble exude the sheer pathetic terror of miscreants with something very serious to hide?

"We. Are all Targets Now"

And we have been so, for a very long time despite a pathological refusal to admit the truth. THAT is my big takeaway from today's shooting in Virginia. We've saturated our society with firearms and poured motivational vitriol into the ears of every twitchy weirdo from The Aleutians Islands to Cutler Harbor. Its a wonder this doesn't happen more often...oh wait IT DOES.
Congress ducked and ran like rats in a firestorm when one of their own Gabby Giffords got plugged in the head, they did less than nothing when Sandy Hook was turned into a pre teen graveyard...and it'll do nothing now believe me.
I'm repeating myself ad nauseum but the problem has become so widespread that I don't think any congressional action at all will even begin to resolve it. Like cowards we've waited too long and now we reap the whirlwind...whats the answer? Not sure, maybe we need to start building bulletproof redoubts in our homes or something.
Meanwhile succor to the victims....

If Trump's reciprocal summit with Theresa May in London

is suddenly "in doubt" it can only stand as a defacto admission that the PM's coalition stands on ver shaky ground indeed.
Hell I think a few good belligerent tweets from the So Called US President and May's Government could well fall.  I don't think Corbyn et al, want Theresa May's government to fall anytime soon, I suspect they'd like the country to get alittle rest from all these election whilst May and her Ministers get worked over well and thoroughly.
But Trump could upset that timetable, at the very least he could RUIN the Brexit Negotiations beyond hope of recovery, Theresa May already has so little work with, the wrong tweet from Donnie could compel her to "Sue for Peace" from the EU.
Hence the current indecision about Trump-in-London....
