The attached/link is a clear, brief & quite erudite look at the status of  ACA/"ObamaCare" as of today.  With out the hyperbole (though surely it deserves some...) this report simply points out the facts & the obvious conclusions from same.  It is good that all know these facts - whether a
supporter or still in doubt; so we can reach reasonable opinions and be able to discuss same with relations, friends or associates in a literate way.  I highly recommend you check it out & hope you also SHARE it with friends.

If the 1% can't fathom any other reason for greater equality & protecting the environment - the prophetic words of the World Bank boss should rouse their concern!  He warns of the coming strife & upheaval we will experience if something doesn't change.  Check it out and do SHARE!

Check out Robert Reich's clear & concise comments on the Court's latest wrong-headed dismantling of campaign finance reform.  As usual the former Labor Secretary tabs it just right and illustrates how the more & more money the 1% pours unabated into these political cofers the more favors - tax cuts, subsidies, deregulation and access they get & the more the 99% pay - in tax, loss of protections and erosion of our Country's safety nets for Seniors, kids, the poor, disabled & disenfranchised...  Reich deserves much credit & respect for sounding a much needed clarion call.

Mike Barnes posted a nice piece on my dad - his life and passing, in Hollywood Reporter tonight.  Its a fairly inclusive & a very respectful article and while he concentrates on dad's film credits, he also covered many of dad's other accomplishments:  His big band era orchestra; founding the nation's first TV magazine/log.  Also covered some of his directing credits, in TV productions & commercials...even touched on his Hollywood High & Loyola U. schooling, as well as his service and being wounded in WWII. 

Thought you might like to check it out.

         EXPLOSIVE WALKER E-MAILS - SURPRISE? - NOT!

Seems E-mails are about to expose another GOP Governor.  This one, unlike the popular Jersey Chris Christie - already safely reelected, Wisconsin's Scott Walker is facing a tough reelection campaign.  And Walker has no reservoir of good will; having barely survived an impeachment vote, and already in for a battle royal to save his Governorship.  Along with hopes of launching himself into the 2016 Presidential picture, Walker didn't need the added negatives the E-mails represent.    Check what's coming & do SHARE!

Check out this pretty good response to a litany of false GOP premises...
and SHARE!
When you’re like me, and I’m assuming there are quite a few, sometimes you hit a point where you can no longer sugarcoat your political arguments.  As you hear the same asinine statements constantly repeated, you just hit a point where you want to stand up and say, “Look you babbling buffoon, let me spell …

Have you seen this video take on Ryan & his House GOP cohorts proposed budget - that virtually destroys Americans safety net.  Especially hurtful for seniors; gutting medicare & leaving them responsible for 68% of health care costs...  Yet providing a huge windfall for those who least need it - the very wealthiest Americans!
Check it out - and pass it on/SHARE!
