When will Amerikka wake up to these incompetent idiots inability to govern>?

Why Privatization Is a Disaster for Any Democratic Society

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.”

HWSNBN faces political danger in visit to Puerto Rico
H/T Politico
No shiess, Sherlock. Hopefully he takes a quick helicopter ride and gets the hell out of there before opening his mouth and swallowing his entire leg.

And

HWSNBN : ‘What happened in Las Vegas is in many ways a miracle’
H/T The Hill
Yes, the miracle of semi-automatic assault rifles, where, in a rapid sequence, a small metal pin strikes a shell casing with a small charge of gunpowder, accelerating a lethal projectile out a grooved barrel, and injecting another round into the firing chamber with the resulting gas, … what a mucking firacle.

Finally,

Lawmakers can’t do anything about mass shootings without politicizing them. Here’s why it’s okay to politicize mass shootings.
H/T Vox
Excellent rebuttal to the spurious argument that we should not do anything except weep and gnash our teeth…

Open Thread, rip it up. The 2nd amendment that is…

9 Reasons Trump’s Tax Plan Will Hurt You
H/T AlterNet
Please use these to inform the muddled masses who are going to claim we’d be better off with HWSNBN’s tax ‘reform’ package
(HWSNBN = He Who Should Not Be Named — The sitting president. I am using this moniker, cause he is thrilled every time he sees his name..)

And

Shooting At Las Vegas Music Festival Kills 50, Wounds More Than 200
H/T TPM
Gun control, Schmun control, just offer coneffingdolences and go back to business as usual. No chance of effecting restrictions on lunatics owning weapons of mass murder…This is our Amurikka today.

Finally,

Puerto Rico is all our worst fears about HWSNBN coming real

G’day Maytes! Here’s the Gnuz for Froidaye

San Juan mayor hits back at Elaine Duke: ‘This is not a good news story. This is a people are dying story.’
H/T Politico
Shows you how completely removed from reality Drumpf and his minions find themselves. If they could, actually find anything that is..

And

Distrust of Senate grows within GOP
H/T The Hill
Yes, those few R-Sen folks who are realizing the damage the proposed legislation would do to their constituents should cause the rest of the R’s to question what they are doing. But not. And the next link from the hill is tangential to this.

Finally,

GOP, drop the partisanship if you want to fix health care
H/T Again, the Hill
Seems like only McCain is left in the group that recognizes that negotiation and compromise has value in the art of governance.

What every American needs to know about Puerto Rico’s hurricane disaster
H/T Vox
U.S. Citizens, pretty much abandoned by their country. And der prezidunce fixated on how much money they owe? Six days in, he says “This is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean,” he said on Tuesday. “And it’s a big ocean; it’s a very big ocean. And we’re doing a really good job.” WTF>?
Eight days later most of the island with no power, water, food, etc. Today, he finally waives the restrictions to allow vessels to deliver aid.
Heckuva job Drumphy!

And

Cohn: ‘The wealthy are not getting a tax cut’
H/T Politico

They haven’t posted the brackets yet…Then we’ll find out how screwed we are…

Finally,

Finally,

Last-ditch repeal bill appears dead
H/T The Hill
Once again, a small handful of ‘principled’ Republican Senators jam up the efforts of the majority party to screw the American people. Now they’ll just have to suffer with health care insurance for the next few years…pity.

Open Thread, enjoy one peace at a time.
