    I thought that was pretty precise. They have what they consider a long list of grievances. I’m really done with this subject. Please stop dragging it on.

    FDA Calls For Zantac To Be Removed From Market

    I stopped using it when they did the recall.

    Coronavirus Updates

    I’m still convinced we’ve been in a slow rolling coup. The horrible truth is that 40% still don’t care and/or understand. I’ve been terrified.

    Fine, put me on ignore. I’m up to two ignored now, it’s just not worth the stress. I’ve tried to speak as precisely as I can when everyone is on edge and it’s just not working.

    2020 Democratic Primary

    How many times do I have to repeat that I’ll be voting for Biden if he’s the nominee in the general? And with that, you’re really on ignore. Whatever you’re mad about, I didn’t cause it by becoming a Bernie supporter after Castro dropped out. I’m not even going to read the rest of this post...

    I don’t hear him saying he’s going to nationalize or take the decision making process away from hospitals as they exist. Whether that’s good or bad will depend on things we can’t foresee, but it doesn’t create a new federal role.

    How COVID-19 is affecting society

    This made me cry. I just hope he and his colleagues get the help they need and that they are heard.

    I don’t expect the government to develop medical centers or engage in any other kind of hospital nationalization in urban areas. There’s a clinic system providing care to poor urban populations that maybe could be expanded to include a few hospitals in remote places, but I haven’t seen anyone...

    Americans gonna American. It’s certainly awful, but it seems to me that people are either white evangelical voters or so afraid of them that voting for women or POC didn’t seem “realistic.” Castro endorsed Warren and neither one had a chance because Americans still take bigotry for...

    And he should ignore them.

    It’s certainly true that the federal functions we had under Obama need to be restored, but any candidate who is not Trump will be willing to do that. The for-profit system is not centrally managed. In an American context, bailouts and subsidies (including a public insurance option) are much...

    2020 Democratic Primary

    Why is it Bernie’s job to save the down ballot and not Biden’s if he’s such a strong candidate? Having said that, I don’t see how telling late voting states that the primary is over (before it’s over) can do anything but suppress turnout, which helps no one. It’s not 2016. Show me why Biden is...

    2020 Democratic Primary

    We are down to three elderly candidates, any one of whom could *not be here* in November. The only other Dem with any significant delegates is Warren. It’s too soon to tell the Left wing the primary is over. It’s too soon to tell the late voting states the primary is over. Do you Bernie...

    2020 Democratic Primary

    You’re now arguing something that can be quantified, so I expect you to produce a statistic and not just your family experience, because the plural of anecdote is not data. Most of my information about financial barriers to care under current ACA comes from the Commonwealth Fund, which is not...
