    • Trump’s Policy on NAFTA is Mostly Correct
      Yeah, I know, Trump is wrong on everything. But I agree with Thomas Walkom on NAFTA. The bottom line is that what Trump wants is what the left should want, and if it doesn’t, it isn’t the economic left. And Trudeau’s pretty face and lovely abs don’t change that. Trump wants to: raise the minimum […]

Victory #nobannonday

BiFF gave me the good news. He’s watching the news so I don’t have to.

The NYTimes says he was pushed out by chief of staff John Kelly. But I kinda suspected he was time boxed. Bannon is not now or ever will be an aristocrat like the kind Trump wants to surround himself. Trump wants to be loved and if he’s not getting that, heads will roll. It was only a time before our self-described modern day Thomas Cromwell met this fate.

The king has no loyalty and Bannon was a particularly bad and evil Cromwell.

Circa Regna Tonat.

Catastrophe avoided. For now.

Friday: hot and steamy

It’s like a sauna out there.

I woke up almost an hour late. I missed my alarm. Both of them. Then I managed to get EVERY red light. Yep, this morning has a “dragging my ass and running behind” feeling to it.

But it’s Friday. Last day of MS product training. Sooooo, there’s that.

Thought about the Stones Start Me Up but that one doesn’t work as well as this one to wake me up:

If you’ve ever had a sick kid who needed constant medical care, you’ll understand the outrage and frustration that the state of Florida caused parents and physicians when over 13000 kids were booted from the CMS Medicaid program. Some kids with diabetes couldn’t get treated. Can you even imagine having to worry about your kid’s insulin? Or cleft palate surgery? Or psychiatric meds?

The parents are suing the state. I hope they win.

I’m livid. The know how difficult it is to pay for insurance for a seriously ill child. This is tragic and greedy.
