Olivia Newton John - "Have you never been mellow?"

Bob Fosse, "The Aloof, The Heavyweight, The Big Finish"

If anyone has any tidbits or inside information about these scenes, please share and enjoy:


"If the Dems simply got rid of (fill in the blank with Dem name) then everyone would vote for them."

"fill in the blank with Dem name) is out of touch with every day real Americans who take showers after work."

"fill in the blank with Dem name) represents a liberal, elitist district that looks down upon the values of real Americans."

"fill in the blank with Dem name) wants to raise taxes of real Americans and give your tax dollars to those people that do not want to work and live on handouts."

"fill in the blank with Dem name) is part of the DC establishment and simply cannot relate to a changing world."

Please stop posting pics of Donald Trump's huge ass.

Thank you in advance.

Doggy gets a lawyer to defend him

Dog: "Please talk to my attorney. Thank you."

The Republican health care bill is a test. A very, very, very important test.

What the Republicans truly want to do is go after ALL domestic spending programs. However, most of these programs directly benefit the White, middle and lower classes. Cutting them off will cause serious pain, and may trigger a class revolt, esp. if you cut medicaid and then give tax cuts to billionaires.

If they get this through, this will be the blue print for going after Medicare, Social Security, and mortgage deductions. If they don't pay a political price for kicking the affirmed off of healthcare, then they have carte blanche to do whatever they want.

Will it trigger a class war? Probably not. There's always a racial minority group to blame. See the 2008 housing collapse and how they blamed the C.R.A.:

Going forward, we have to fight for Single Payer

The ACA was a compromise with the Republicans, and that compromise was shoved back in our faces.

So, no more Mr. Nice Guy. Let's go for Single Payer, a simplified straight forward national healthcare plan where everyone pays into it and everyone gets access to health care. Tell the insurance and pharmaceutical companies to go fuck off.

Jesus Christ could be the Dem. House Minority Leader, and the Republicans would shit all over him.

People that's what they do. They play the politics of personal destruction.

We're in the middle of a vicious class war against the middle, working, lower, and poor classes

The GOP is leading the charge in this war, and they're winning by re-framing and conflating the class struggle as a race/gender/environmental/social issues/globalization/xenophobic struggle.

The struggling coal miner is unemployed purely because of environmental issues. The factory worker is laid off purely because of globalization. African Americans and undocumented workers are getting government benefits. The "elites" on the coasts hate your religious beliefs.

So, when Republicans win, what do they do? They pass laws that worsen the class struggle. Massive tax cuts for the wealthy. De-regulation of business. No raise in the min. wage.

The class resentment grows, and then it's back to the re-framing and conflating.

Bottom line is this. Neither the Democratic party NOR BERNIE SANDERS are truly prepared to build a national movement to counter this class struggle. They don't seem to really understand what exactly is going on here. In fact, there is NO major, organized force that can fight back on this class warfare.
