Welcome to Wednezday the median day in the workweek.
Here’z the Gnuz

Trump’s Trip To Asia Is Great If You Like To See U.S. Weak
H/T C&L
Make Amerika Grate (shred us like a sharp loaf of cheddar)…

And

Trump caught tweeting about the wrong mass shooting
H/T Raw Story
Fumbduck Prezidunce obviously keeping a library of insta-tweets to choose from. Sad!

Finally,

GOP targets health mandate in tax reform
H/T The Hill
They need to carve out more money to get this mess fillibuster proof. Only fifteen million or so will stop buying insurance, so that’s OK by them…Amerika the fumbduckable.

It’s Tuesday, so here’z the TuesGnuz…

Trump Blames ‘Generals’ For Telling Him Obama Didn’t Call Family Members
H/T C&L
Always has to blame others for his failures and lies. So, is he lying as he blames others for his bullsh***ing?

And

Trump’s Latest Obamacare Attack Triggers Rate Hikes, Lawsuits, Confusion
H/T TPM
Not just raising rates, but forcing insurers out of the market, huge swaths of people to not be able to afford health insurance, and costing the gummint billions…preziduncial.

Finally,

The 4 steps Republicans have to take to pass tax reform
H/T Vox
Phase 1: before cutting taxes, Republicans need to pass a budget
Phase 2: overcome key policy disagreements
Phase 3: actually go through regular order — or so they say
Phase 4: get this bill through the Senate’s obscure budget rules — which is the really hard part

Let’s have a pool on which phase(s) the Republican’ts will fall on their faces. Perhaps giving HeWhoShouldNotBeNamed a __________ fill in the medical condition you prefer…

Open Thread, let’s try to get through the week with our sanity intact.

‘Calm before the storm’ remark was Trump ‘just trolling all of you’: White House staffer
H/T Raw Story
Yes, HA HA HA!!! I just love it when the man with the football starts joking around about nuking millions of folks and starting WWIII. That’s just Hucking Filarious!!

And

Warning signs emerge in GOP’s tax reform push
H/T The Hill
Whoops, there goes the infighting, squabbling and fundamental gash/chasm between the ubernuts and the just sortanuts factions, screwing the legislative pooch again, and again…ad nauseum. Big Question?
When will Amerikka wake up to these incompetent idiots inability to govern>?

Finally,

Why Privatization Is a Disaster for Any Democratic Society
H/T AlterNet
A well crafted statement on why private health insurance is untenable in a civilzed society. Subtitled “In a totally free market health care system, you must be willing to let some patients die.”

Special Comment: A Nation at War

7/28/2017. The day 46 men and 3 women voted in the middle of the night to take health care away from 16 million United States Citizens.
 
If this were a foreign attack aimed at destroying the lives of 16 million citizens we would have declared it an act of war.
 
And, indeed, it was an act of war: class war. Those 49 people acted to advance the fortunes of the very few at the cost of the lives of the least fortunate among us.
 
This is the kind of war that is being waged by the wealthy against the poor. It is being waged in the middle of the night. It is being waged behind closed doors. Make no mistake about it, they will try again; try again to commit mass murder by depriving the least fortunate among us any access to medical treatment that would save their lives.
 
We are a nation at war.

Daily Gnuz (of the day)

Welcome to Wednesday the Nineteenth of July, in the year 2017

Here’s what’z in the gnuz.

Inside Trump Family’s Turmoil Amid Russia Scandal: Don Jr. Is ‘Miserable’ and Wants ‘These Four Years to Be Over’
h/t People (yeah, I know, please just ignore the noise on the cover about Blac Chyna, etc)
Ahh, Donny Junior, you’re not the only one with that sentiment. BUT! There’s an easy way out! Just have daddy resign, and you can go back to being the total sleazebag you’ve always been, just without all the damnable scrutiny that is routinely applied to those in the First Nepotistic Family!

And

Tax reform becomes a must-win issue for the White House
h/t Politico
Prediction…They’ll have exactly the same failure as the repeal of ACA. Rand Paul will insist on a flat tax, no Republikkin will agree to close loopholes the size of galaxies for their patrons and benefactors in Big (fill in blank here, Pharma, Oil…you call it)

Finally,

Trump: Republicans ‘never discuss how good their healthcare bill is’
h/t The Hill
Agreed, Orangeshitgibbon, the only question remaining would be ‘good for who/m’??? Idiot.

And ONE MORE find o’ the day at Vox!
Trump can’t make a health care deal because he doesn’t understand health care
A terrific treatise on how not to lead the nation in an area
like health care…

Open Thread, enjoy!

It’s Monday Morning (in case you were too hungover to know that), and here’s what’s in the Gnuz!

Trump: Congress wouldn’t ‘dare’ leave without ‘beautiful’ healthcare bill
h/t The Hill
Idiot. The Republican Senators with a wisp of decency, and those who are facing re-election aren’t going to vote for anything that could possibly be approved by the House Conference…Idiot.

And

Trump’s son and top advisers met with a Russian lawyer to try and get dirt on Hillary Clinton
h/t Vox
And here’s the first thread to start unraveling…Motive is everything. And Junior’s big mouth just provided the investigators intent…Congratulations on being as big an idiot as your father.

Finally,

Trump’s cyber tweets cause dismay, confusion
h/t Politico
More evidence that this prezidunce either has onset of Alzheimer’s, or possibly is so compulsive/obsessive that he is unable to function, or has
advisors who are desperately trying to keep him from tweeting conflicting and confusing blobs of crap, or all of the above. Your thoughts?

P.S. fatherbob posted this yesterday, much worth a reposting today. How Trump is passing the baton of world leadership to China and Russia.

The Watering Hole, Tuesday July 22, 2014 – Special Report

The first person I ever knew who had AIDS was a professor of Special Education at Temple University. He died a few months after being assigned to the facility where I was working. He was too weak to teach in the classroom anymore.This was in 1981, when the epidemic was just being discovered. Here we are, 33 years later and perhaps we have now found a cure. Fingers crossed.
