    Flynn should have watched this

    Just a little reminder.  I always find it funny that the police themselves are advised not to talk to the police.  The truth will come out - they don't need your 0.02, PARTICULARLY if you're innocent.

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/13/politics/bernie-sanders-medicare-for-all-plan-details/index.html Personally, I suspect something like this is inevitable. I'm glad to see it's actually out on the table so it can be thrashed out.
