Not to get too far off the path, but yesterday Liz Warren came out against single payer.
The Democratic Party establishment has now officially given up on Medicare for all once again.
Maybe we should just start lobbying republicans to support MFA. After all, it looks like we would sooner change their minds than get the Third Way to.

Also not exactly on point, but it’s hard to keep good news to yourself in times like these.
There’s the possibility that us weed smokers have an upper hand on this virus. Jimmy Dore just dropped a vid about the subject, didn’t view it because of having to sign-in to a google account (I refuse to do this), but judging by the comment section, it’s very positive. Those with an account on YT might want to check it out.

Hats off to Dr. Gaffney, his un-wavered support for EIM4A is second to none.

Dark money is part of the gubmit’s dark new deal being crafted to land us in a new dark age.

Recall the last dark age lasted several centuries…just what the oligarchs want !

There will be no M4A. We’ll be fighting the lies of Harris, Booker, and BootieJudge for a generation.

Wonder What the price was for Liz?

After after all, they’ve wiped out Bernie, and apparently feel they have enough ‘Blue No Matter Who’ stooges on board, so - back to Status Quo, and a return to Wall Street ‘Normal’.
They’ve weathered another Progressive Storm. THe seas are calm once again

And while you’re at it - also off topic - the Dore / Ratigan Covid discussions are excellent and worth the time. There are five 1+ hr discussions so far

Yes, I linked (as best as we can now days) one of the Dore/Ratigan vids yesterday about the Fed pushing for a peoples bailout.

I’ll wager the price is/was the VP slot, which I’ll bet she was offered prior to Super Tuesday.

“Wonder what the price was for Liz?”

No telling, but would love to see Biden “punch down” at Liz on MSM and deny the position, like he did to Stacey Abrams. Can’t think of a fake progressive that deserves it more.

Just imagine if there had not been a pandemic that helped crash the economy. While Joe slept and drooled down his chin, Trump would be re elected easily.
In no reasonable world would a president like Trump stand a snowballs chance at Beezebubs barbecue of getting re elected. But now, I just don’t know.

AHA is not for healthcare but “wealthcare”, obviously.

FYI that piece JD did about Marijuana preventing Covid-19 is in the May 21 show
Biden’s Meaningless “Task Forces”!

It starts at about 36:37

But the entire show is worth listening to ! Dore is hitting on ALL cylinders these days. Hes a better source for what’s going on than Miller, Hartman, HP, RS, DU, Sparks, etc, etc, etc

BTW here’s the source article from IBT
~https://www.ibtimes.com/coronavirus-treatment-cannabis-enzymes-could-help-block-gateway-covid-19-study-2979422

  • A Canadian study claimed CBD opens a new avenue toward treating COVID-19 by preventing the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to bind with human cells
  • This finding seems to indicate medical cannabis products could become a safe adjunct therapy for the treatment of COVID-19

Reserve a room now in the Coronavirus hotel of your choice, while the current level of care is being reduced and capped. Ever wonder why republicans never even bother to oppose M4A? Mostly because they already have it by current legislation. For-profit hospitals are still part of the minority, and still pay taxes which is one of two major differences, the other is how they spend their funding.

Total Number of All U.S. Hospitals 6,146

Number of U.S. Community 5,189
Number of Nongovernment Not-for-Profit Community Hospitals 2,937
Number of Investor-Owned (For-Profit) Community Hospitals 1,296
Number of State and Local Government Community Hospitals 965
Number of Federal Government Hospitals 209
Number of Nonfederal Psychiatric Hospitals 616

The 401Ks of the Mod-Dems, or Conser-Dems, who are from the get-to-work-from-home crowd could care less about the less lucky. Which is 45-50% of the working class still employed. " Essential workers " in the food, service and hospitality sectors are like " sooo last week ", or soon will be. 40 million people, and their dependents, will just have to get along as best they can.
" Cocooning " is back and it will going gangbusters in the next decade. Medical housecalls for the wealthy are back; can you dig it, daddy-o? Soon it will be private hospitals, too. Subsidized to the hilt, of course.
Delivery of the best, to the best ( richest ) is where we’re headed. The rest can eat cake from a dumpster.
Breaking the back of the rich requires removing their spines, down to and right about at wallet level. Nothing else will work.

Been a consumer for over 50 years, and it’s never been legal.

Can’t think of a better way to expire.

Yeah I’m at 45 year mark, with a past conviction for growing, it would be nice not to have to worry about it though.
