    New D hats being tossed in the ring

    I was bummed, too. I was amazed that it lasted as long as it did. Honestly, how much demand is there for video overviews of ZF(C)?

    I'm not sure. I think Matthews was suggesting something more like Agnew's deal. I suppose that could happen.

    If so he kept it on background. If there is a smoking [sic] gun or two, a deal that lets the country move on quickly and cleanly would be worth a lot.

    All pretty vague and speculative. It doesn't sound to me like he has specific information. He just thinks DJT would be willing to step down to save his kids. ASSUMING, there are cases to answer I presume there could be plea agreements that include resignations.

    New D hats being tossed in the ring

    Here's a nice essay that name-checks some of the fancy thinking about that math thing:

    Teapot Dome? What early 20th century admin was as corrupt as Trump's appears to be?

    Please don't suggest this to MBS.

    Ocasio

    It's a bit of Federalist 10. "Publius" argues that the structure of the union will counter the evils of faction. Sadly, doesn't seem to be working well post 1994.

    ACA struck down

    This is true. Suicide hasn't come into my planning. I was thinking of covering potential direct financial burdens specifically. My take is the ACA is FU but less so, in sum even if not in particular, than the very sorry state of things it modified. There are systems that seem much better to me. I've lived in places with them. The paths from where we are to where we could be if we had the will are not easy even in theory.

    ACA struck down

    I thought mine was a good gamble. It made money sense in all eventualities except the most catastrophic and chronic compared to the ACA plans that I found available to me in my local market. My tastes run to paying cash rather than lay away and simplicity over complexity. So, I'd rather not have a plan where I pay $25 up front for glasses that I can buy outright for a few times that or one that covers an MRI for my tennis elbow. Of course, my numbers and assumptions will differ from others. I think I have an obligation to make sure that I don't become a burden to the community. I had that covered in a way that was better for me but apparently not in a way that the ACA approves of. I am feeling a bit put out by the whole thing so I'm sure my judgment is less disinterested than ideal. Still, I feel that ACA has not been great for me.

    ACA struck down

    Interesting. Thanks. I will look into this more. I did think it was a true statement based on what I've been told by people who are paid to know but I am a long way from a good understanding myself.

    ACA struck down

    Meh, the details matter. Policies with high deductibles were eliminated. Some of those policies were good deals for some people. In big picture terms I think ACA has improved things, but, honestly, for some folks on some margins it hasn't been good. In know in these Manichean times that having a nuanced position is frowned on by everyone but the ACA is a very complicated system that is not wholly good or evil.
