This democrat wants to ask, Why are these guys trying to do this themselves, instead of using experts to write the health plan? I really don't mind that they haven't got it right yet. If they need another four months, so be it. But...in reality they've had years to work on it. And it would work a lot better if we trimmed the military budget. What the reality tells me, is that it's n issue of staffing. The pressure is to move on to other issues. Well, with enough staff, they could work on more than one thing at a time. I think my biggest gripe is that I want creative people in office. You do have to think outside the box. You'd think that the government could create it's own insurance program. And offer the kind of tax incentives to drug manufacturers to keep drug prices down. Priorities. We'll talk about billionaires another time.

Samsung still making digital cameras? Had a fine one about eight years ago. Probably a five meg model. 480 video. But good looking compression. Those older sensors simply got strange after a while. As if too much sun had muddied the color separation. But I have some killer Monument Valley shots from it....

We have no idea of the specifics. However, Hitchcock has bought the rights to the story. It's tentative title is Compression. Justified was already taken. What kind of courts does Japan have? Civil and criminal? Juries?

If you watched the open hearings, or hope to on YouTube, you'll hear the subject of Tillerson, the Russisn oligarchy, and Trump's and Tillerson's joint interest in abandoning NATO. There's ton of stuff to learn more from the questions than just the answers given. Some really bright incisive people on board. Go watch it.

With 72 comments above me, I can't read all of them. But I watched 3 hours of the open hearing tonight. I grokked what Comey and Rogers's couldn't talk about, but I was fascinated by all these intelligent new faces (to me) had to say. I felt the American process was back on it's feet again. I give no one a pass, considering Kobey's mouth influenced the Clinton vote. But I see integrity all over the room. And intelligence. But let's face it, the big shots on Don's team don't think like the rest of us. Exxon smoozing for oil deals, payments, favors, you get the strong feeling that these international players think completely outside of lowly government concerns. they make gigantic power plays with the oligarchy in Russia, a country that hasn't a clue as to the art form of a interdependent relationship with the Ukraine. It's the old KGB mentality. Don't forget these guys used to control what maps looked like, to keep the people from knowing the actual border lines of their own country. The hubris of American industrialists aligns with this type of thinking. The masses are a means to an end. No difference than what a small company thinks of it's one hundred employees.

I hope some of his new work makes it to our ears. My favorite tune if his is It Goes To Show You Never Can Tell. That had to be the catchiest song ever. You know those rockabilly bands that play in public parks in Japan? They will be remembering. Go film them and put it up on YouTube.

Rather see a film that uncovers the relationship with dark energy and the way nature has evolved. Cycles.
Rather see another Tron film. (My favorite IMAX experience)
Rather see an Avatar sequel. Cameron does synthetic better than anyone....
Rather go see Skull Island again next week on six buck Tuesdays.
Rather see another Mad Max.

Money going for more military spending and a wall. Money taken away from agencies that educate the people. It's all as plain as the story in the palm of your hand. For Christ's sake, Trump is it some savior for the middle class. He and his team are nationalist elitists that want to cut access for liberal thinking cultures to American wealth. This is not about saving America, it's about a gigantic power play by men who have no connection to the general population.

The more about Welles you know, the more you love the guy. His later film, F For Fake, is very fresh in style, and the extras on it tell you a lot about a man who would be king played the jester instead. A lot. Get the DVD.

I've already told this story. Trump has a writer with him at one of his homes. Trump points to artwork on the wall in the kid's room, snd tells the writer that Walt Disney himself did it. The writer gives him the big skeptical look, and Trump laughs and says, "Who cares?"
I do hope you grok this.

Strange, when a company would spend less hiring more people for those hours. Maybe because of adding more people to their health plan, and them making copayments is a reason. It's pisspoor management any way you look at it. Let's get some testimony from protected workers.

I wonder what Ernie Kovacs would have done in a skit about Deep State. Don't forget that lobbyists are far more dangerous than bureaucracy. The deep situation holds true for both parties. Trump will dump what bothers him, but the Deep State of the White House kitchen staff will survive. Did Bannon ever serve in the military?
