"The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give." — Philip K. Dick If you want that good feeling that comes from doing things for other folks then you have to pay for it in abuse and misunderstanding. Zora Neale Hurston

Thursday through Friday in the Republican nominee's life was just another chaotic episode which ended today in a Trump Egofest gone wild.  Today's Trump rally was supposed to be an introduction to the Vice Presidential candidate.  But anyone could have predicted, and no one should be shocked that the introduction would be all about The Donald.

Sierra Blanca -- Bernie is a NIMBY but Not a Revolutionary

In 1980 an important law was passed, this law required states to take responsibility for their low-level nuclear waste. It was known as "Low Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act of 1980".  The law itself urged states to cooperate, so states began to form compacts with each other to essentially rent spots to dump low-level radioactive waste.

The Acceptable Woman: Sexism in Progressivism

We've all heard it, many progressive men tell me, "Ahh Elizabeth Warren, I would vote for her". Elizabeth Warren is the election year "Acceptable Woman", even though she isn't running.   Thanks, good to know who the Acceptable Woman is as deemed by mostly white men.

The Eight Page Solution: Bernie Sanders Health Care Scam

Eight pages that is all he has three pages. Eight pages aren't a policy, eight pages are not a plan, eight pages are for Rubes who don't care about the realities and difficulties which make and developing and implementing health care policies that work. 

Sanders biggest problem is that he doesn't really have a plan. He does have an outline of what he wants to do, but no plan, and not one technical detail about how to achieve his "Medicare for All" plan.

How to Get to Single Payer: The Hillary Rodham Clinton Route

Let's talk about Health Care, again, issues that will have to be settled before we can move the nation towards adopting a single payer legislative framework.  What does it take to move America in this direction. 

We are behind, there is no doubt about it, 70+ years behind all the other developed nations systems.  Should we have done something before this? Yes, but we didn't and we have to deal with that in a very realistic manner. We must recognize there are steps that must be taken in order to secure that is the future of our healthcare system.

My Irrelevant Rant: Donald Trump, Debbie Wasserman Schulz, Howard Dean & Me

It all began in July, Donald Trump was on TV continuously, I had a dental appointment coming up. I slept very deeply the night before my appointment and I was dreaming, I mean having a nightmare.  I sat straight up in bed scared to death, because I'd dreamt Donald Trump was my dentist. There he was standing over my face, dye job gone wrong red hair and his his skin was a light cheeto tint, it was disturbing and probably true, but I've never been that close to Donald Trump to say that is absolutely factual. His assistant was everything you would expect of a Trump assistant.

The Case for Hillary Clinton: Health Care Policy Experience

Everyone knows I think Hillary Clinton is Bernie Sanders; equal. But if we were to be very truthful, she is more than his equal, because she has had to fight harder to get here. I'm serious about that, she even had to fight harder to get me.

In 2008, I was not a Hillary fan at all. I was 100% for the President.  I didn't think she proved herself (I was wrong about that). But I chose Obama, and while I am glad that I did, I want to say this, Hillary Clinton is a loyal big d and little d, democrat. She is the equal of every man and woman running, including Bernie Sanders. She has deep experience crafting policy and understands how to get legislation passed.

Magical Karmic Raises are only for Women!

At a women's tech conference Thursday, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft said this:

“It’s not really about asking for a raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raise,” he said to an audience primarily composed of women. "That might be one of the initial 'super powers,' that quite frankly, women (who) don’t ask for a raise have. It’s good karma. It will come back."

Magical Karmic Raises are the best kind of raises, because it tells the world we women in tech are good girls who don't question authority!
