Confession: Sometimes when I'm scrolling through photos of my glass work I come across things I cant believe that I made.

The right’s anti-healthcare jubilee! Why they can’t quit the Obamacare obsession via @Salon #hatefulrightwing
"...At least four Supreme Court justices are part-time or full-time inhabitants of the alternate conservative reality, and they have demonstrated a hostility toward Obamacare and a willingness to bend their own legal reasoning in the service of tearing the law down. It’s still unlikely that Halbig would be upheld by the Supreme Court, but if the conservatives on the court were to pull it off, the decision would throw millions of Americans’ personal lives into disorder and create chaos in 36 states. And the right would be okay with that, so long as Obamacare gets hurt. ..." - WarLord
The right’s anti-healthcare jubilee! Why they can’t quit the Obamacare obsession via @Salon
"...The unseemly side to all this celebrating is the fact that these conservatives are, in effect, throwing a party over a judicial ruling that would strip millions of people of their health coverage. “The next time Republicans are wondering why so many people think their party is cruel and uncaring and will gladly crush the lives of ordinary people if it means gaining some momentary partisan advantage, they might think back to this case,” wrote Paul Waldman in the American Prospect. ..." - WarLord
My Bohemian Great Grandfather arrived in America to escape religious persecution before there was an Ellis Island He traveled to St Louis sponsored by their Bohemian Society thence to Manley, Iowa. My grandfather was a year and a half old when they left Bremer Harbor and yet born on the train trip between New York City and St Louis #anchorbaby
I've been here all my life but all ALL of my antecedents are from umm "elsewhere". I want to sincerely thank Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, and the rest of Right Wing assholes for not inventing time travel to go back and "fortify" that particular border #wherewouldIbe - WarLord

Right-wing obstruction could have been fought: An ineffective and gutless presidency’s legacy is failure via @Salon
"... In point of fact, there were plenty of things Obama’s Democrats could have done that might have put the right out of business once and for all—for example, by responding more aggressively to the Great Recession or by pounding relentlessly on the theme of middle-class economic distress. Acknowledging this possibility, however, has always been difficult for consensus-minded Democrats, and I suspect that in the official recounting of the Obama era, this troublesome possibility will disappear entirely ..." - WarLord
"... My own preference would be to let that disillusionment run, to let it guide the entire design of the Obama museum. Disillusionment is, after all, a far more representative emotion of our times than Beltway satisfaction over the stability of some imaginary “center.” So why not memorialize it? My suggestion to the designers of the complex: That the Obama Presidential Library be designed as a kind of cenotaph, a mausoleum of hope ..." - WarLord

You never saw President Obama at a rally for job dignity at MacDonald's or Walmart Never speaking for $15 dollars an hour wages for the disposable class of workers. You saw him meet and greet Waltons and the great Satan of worker exploitation Jeff Bezos but never a word for the McDonald and Walmart unionizing campaigns. He wasn't a progressive or a liberal, he was a product of Harvard and writing a book to pay his student loans..... - WarLord
I fell at the hospital coming out of the infusion center after my Mg IV. Classic "no warning" IBM drop - One minute I'm next I'm down! Luckily I was on carpet, nothing damaged but my dignity. First drop in a while. I tend to think that's worse, just when you think you can depend on your legs, they betray you again Oh well I AM still walking...

am lucky . I watched the "get up" video posted on The Myositis Association website with my Alexander Teacher than we "gamed" ways I could use to gain my feet that fit my physical ability.

Monday afternoon I'm at Endoscopy Center to have my Gastro Doc scope me. We are at a crossroads. After multiple bowel resections the connection of my small and large bowel is suspect. Is there inflammation, maybe microbe spill from large bowel maybe scar tissue is restricting flow... Lots of questions Answers? Not so much. I don't clean out well...
I don't clean out well So today is liquids only and enemas in the morning Hopefully he can see enough to make us some better choices going forward. The very good news: Doc is a good guy with a caring heart He has my confidence and trust and THATis most of the battle well that and a whole crap load of Prednisone - WarLord

If brainwaves can reliably control mechanisms why have we not seen more than demos in past 40 years?
Because Silicon Valley is invested in mechanical pointers anf a breakthrough making much of current software (apps) obsolete is not wanted . - WarLord
In forty years, we've managed to take brainwave-controlled mechanisms from a simple on-off state change which required the mental control of a master yogi to operate and turn them into slightly more complex control systems which require the mental control of a reasonably-skilled yogi. But really, I don't think thought control will replace physical unless or until we crack the brain's OS :-) - Slippy: Potato Croquette
The American Century is over: How our country went down in a blaze of shame via @Salon
"... Among the biggest beneficiaries of the current American economic system are not entrepreneurs or innovators, but parasites who owe their wealth to rigged markets or government subsidies. The “parasite load” in the U.S. economy includes many in the financial industry who expect that the federal government will socialize their losses but let them keep their profits — profits taxed at low rates, or hidden from taxation altogether. Other parasitic special interests include the predatory monopolies of America’s health care sector — the pharma industry, which charges Americans far more for the same drugs than it is allowed to charge in Canada, Europe or Asia; physicians, who tend to be paid much more in the U.S. than in other countries with comparable health outcomes; and price-gouging hospitals. Much of America’s higher education industry, too, is riddled with parasites, including bankers who profit from lifelong debt serfdom by Americans who take out student loans and empire-building university administrators who fund personal entourages with public and private money. ..." - WarLord
"... Apart from a revival of oil and gas production in the U.S., the economy’s main area of comparative strength has been technological innovation. The rise of self-driving vehicles and the “internet of things” are promising developments. But these mostly involve the extension of existing information technology to new sectors. The American tech economy has been living on intellectual... more... - WarLord
",,, The U.S. is facing a triple crisis — a crisis of foreign policy, a crisis of economics and a crisis of democracy. The American republic has renewed and rebuilt itself during even greater crises in the past, and can do so again. But the first step is to drop the happy talk and chest-thumping and flag-waving and be honest with ourselves about the severity of the problems confronting us. ,,," - WarLord

But don't get us wrong, the main goal of this trip (successful or not) is to have fun! Hopefully we will inspire others to think beyond their comfort zone and do something they can tell their grandkids about!" ..." - WarLord

From Salon's comments: @That__guy Actually, as a liberal I'd like to wish a Happy 4th of July to Mitt and Sarah's overseas bank accounts. I'd like to wish wish a happy 4th of July to Todd Palin and the other members in his secessionist from America movement. I'd like to wish a happy 4th of July to Donald Trump's made in China dress shirts. I'd...
...I'd like to wish a happy 4th of July to the two owners of Fox News, Australian born Rupert Murduch and Riyadh, Saudi Arabian born Al-Waleed bin Talal. But most of all I'd like to wish a happy 4th of July to Canadian born Ted Cruz. And Happy 4th of July to Israel born Jesus Christ. MUR-CA!!!!!! - WarLord

Here's the deal with me:
I'm a hyper, happy, always look on the bright side, workaholic, who loves to laugh, have a fun time, drink snooty Belgian beer, and knows dick about wine. I swear like a sailor on shore leave and have a thick NYC accent. I could eat pizza or a bacon cheeseburger every day and be quite happy. I will always think my ass and hips and thighs are too big and will perpetually be "on a diet." I like being silly before I fall asleep and first thing when I wake. I am mostly nocturnal and do enjoy sleeping in very late on Sundays. I love football and hockey. I'm addicted to yarn and often come home with it. I will cry any time I see a stray cat or dog and I get very grouchy when I'm hungry or tired. I hate talking on the phone, but love getting/sending text messages. I think the Who and the Kinks are the best bands ever and that the Rolling Stones are overrated. I will go to every record store in NYC to hunt down that Sweet Things 7 inch on vinyl and will listen to the same record over and over... more... - Mary Carmen

Quick Question out of the Hobby Lobby thing: If I'm an employer who doesn't believe in Christmas/Easter, can I now make my employees work those days without penalty rates?
Christmas is a federal holiday, so no. - Heather
But doesn't that holiday now infringe on a Corporation's religious freedom? - Johnny from iPhone
The Hobby Lobby ruling never touched the First Amendment and never gave official, legal, religious rights to corporations. The ruling was that it was an extension of Religious Freedom Restoration Act which "aimed at preventing laws that substantially burden a person's free exercise of their religion." It basically made it so that privately held corporations are now lumped in with religious organizations when it comes to being exempt from paying for health plans that pay for contraception. - Chris Topher
The ruling will ultimately stretch to allow any number of awful things that a corporation might do in the name of the owners "religious" so yes a devout religious person could refuse to pay overtime to workers on a holiday that heir particular religion does not recognize they could aloe refuse blood transfusions and antibiotics and any number of treatment they do not "believe" - WarLord
There are other cases coming along that address the broader scope of this, but as of now it's "just" about denying women access to health care. I think they limited it they way they did so that it only looks like a women's reproductive health issue, because that's not enough to get upset about. - Heather
Warlord, blood transfusions were specifically mentioned in the decision and that this ruling in no way extends to those procedures, nor would it. - Chris Topher
Chris ys I read it BUT I'd only offer the arc of SCOTUS DOMA ruling to tell you that EVERYTHING is in play including blood transfusions and paid overtime and every god damn thing that can be mashed into a religious object ton - WarLord
Precedence. - Johnny
Easter has never been a Holiday where I work. - Janet
That's a good point, Janet. I'm pretty sure Easter is not considered a holiday at a lot of places. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
