Please Pass The Soma

So many passionately expressed their outrage back in September when the repeal of Obamacare was very real…and failed…thanks to those passionate voices.

Here’s the rub, the Republican Tax Bill — now all but assured passage by the Senate — includes a powerful provision that removes the Individual Mandate to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), effectively starving Obamacare — and will have a very similar effect on the lives of Americans as a straight repeal — increases in premiums for everyone and reduce coverage to affordable healthcare for millions who need it most.

I understand that taxes are messy and there’s so much wrong with this bill (including screwing over Polar Bears) — but I’m surprised by how many folks are sidelining this time around.

Is it fatigue..you know…it just doesn’t matter? You changed your mind about the need for affordable healthcare? You like the tax bill? Magical Thinking? Waiting for the overtime victory that’s snatched out of the jaws of certain defeat? You’re tired seeing these silly political posts and want more cat photos? Done.

I really don’t know.

Oh, well…I guess its time to embrace our new Kleptocracy, Corporatocracy or Oligarchy…you choose.

Please pass the Soma.

The Jesus and Mary Chain Play the Palace Theatre

I’m a huge fan of the Palace Theatre – Great Show Tonight. St. Paul

Palace Theatre is as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.

This part is a bit hazy. The Jesus and Mary Chain.
