Health Care Should Help us In Rural America

Whoever replaces Alex Azar should take a team and set up shop at these types of free medical events in poor areas of the country and explain to these folks that us Democrats are trying our hardest to make sure that they and their families are able to get decent healthcare but are being stymied by their local Repukes. We let them paint us as coming to take their guns, force them to have abortions, and ending Christmas--when in reality the Repukes take them for granted and allow this squalor to continue.

The central Appalachian area that includes eastern Kentucky, southern West Virginia and western Virginia has long been one of the sickest and poorest regions in the country. More recently, it has been ravaged by the decline of coal mining.

But Virginia was among 19 states that chose not to expand Medicaid as part of the Affordable Care Act. Many states cited the cost, even though Washington pledged to pick up nearly the entire expense. An expansion in Virginia would have covered an additional 400,000 people.

Kantsos voted for Donald Trump last fall in the hope that he could shake up Washington. She said the president needs to concentrate more on his job and less on Twitter.

Sutherland supported Trump, too, and said he thinks the president deserves more time. But Sutherland, who comes to the clinic for dental work and medicine, wishes lawmakers understood how hard life can be in Appalachia. Last year, he said, he walked 30 miles (50 kilometers) to the Wise clinic because he had no car; it took more than seven hours. Others have it bad, too.


Delaware adjusts to having a President

I can attest to the significant changes during the transition period....I go to Lewes all the time but live in Wilmington, about 6 miles from his home. The main road I use on a daily basis is Rt. 141 and I've been blocked by motorcades about 3 times so far and I often see them gathering along the road, so I guess I've also had several near-misses. But I will take it!

In his eight years as vice president, Joe Biden notoriously urged his Secret Service detail to keep a distance while in Delaware — not typical for the man first in line for presidential succession.

He traveled to Wilmington as much as three times a week, making life difficult for agents, according to some reports.

He may not be able to dictate those same rules now. Just weeks away from becoming the leader of the free world, it's unclear if he will have this luxury as president.


Event in Gettysburg

I'm not going to watch it, but with all the paranormal activity in the area I was thinking that it would be cool if some sort of portal to Hell opened up and a bunch of Confederate traitors reached up and pulled 45 & Rudy in. If that happens, I'll watch the highlights later in the evening


Brees kept playing with 5 broken ribs!

3 from the week before and 2 in the last game. I cannot imagine---he is one tough dude!

I broke several ribs when I fell off a ladder while painting. I finished painting, put the ladder in the basement, then sat on the couch. Eventually, the pain became unbearable and I knew something was up. By the time I got to the ER, I was a miserable wretch.


Remarkably, Brees stayed in the game for the final eight minutes of the first half Sunday after absorbing a big hit by 49ers defensive tackle Kentavius Street -- finishing one touchdown drive, then completing five passes on another TD drive. He was unable to continue in the second half, though.

A source told Werder that Brees broke two ribs on his right side during the first half of the 49ers game -- and that doctors believe those fractures may have punctured his lung, creating a pneumothorax. Doctors also discovered three fractured ribs on Brees' left side, which are believed to have occurred a week earlier in a 38-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The concession speech we deserve


Flashback to President Elect Trump's Press Conference (SNL)



Could we blast music to flush out the dictator?

The US military has used that tactic in the past, with positive results. What music would he hate the most?

In deference to diplomatic protocol, U.S. forces did not enter the embassy. But they did concoct a plan to smoke out Noriega, who died Monday at the age of 83. The plan involved music, mostly heavy metal and rock, with a few ballads thrown in. It was blasted on loud speakers, at deafening volumes, around the clock.


Will White House go full Chinese Embassy on us?

Would not surprise me....

The Onion: Trump Disappointed in Supporters

Pacing slowly back and forth as he delivered his words, President Donald Trump reportedly told a room full of his supporters, “You have disappointed me” Wednesday while strapping on a gas mask.
