Where's KELVIN MACE? missing since 7/2016

Dear Admins and fellow DUers.

I hope it's ok to post this here.

A good friend and popular DU poster, Kelvin Mace told me that his acct was suspended back in 2016.
He has requested to know when the suspension will be lifted, and has been waiting since 7/2016 for a reply.

He has been a popular poster at DU, with very interesting and often viral posts.

Kelvin Mace did major work in North Carolina to get a verified voting law passed, the work and
the movement would not have succeeded without his help.

Please advise when when his acct can be reactivated.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

Hillary Clinton forces target Bush donors

Clinton backers are calling Bush donors and telling them she "represents their values"

One person close to Clinton said supporters of the former secretary of state drew up a list of Wall Street donors who supported Jeb Bush and other unsuccessful Republican candidates months ago but wanted to wait until Trump locked down the nomination before beginning to make the calls.
...
“There's nothing that will hurt her more with the Bernie Sanders/Bill De Blasio/Elizabeth Warren wing of the party than aligning herself with Wall Street,” said GOP donor Gregory Slayton.
But those risks are apparently outweighed by the need for money.

QUESTIONS ABOUT OBAMACARE? ME TOO - So I made a call today

GOT QUESTIONS ABOUT OBAMACARE? ME TOO. so I made a call today.

The gov now has a call center open 24X7 (800-318-2596) to answer your questions about the Affordable Care Act also called "Obamacare". And a website http://www.healthcare.gov
I made a call and also did some research online. You might find this interesting.

It took about 10 minutes for the call representative to answer two questions:

1) does owning property impact your rates (if you own a home or land, will you have to pay more for insurance)?
and
2) if I have a pre-existing condition or have been treated for an illness, will I have to pay more for insurance?

The answer to #1 was No.
The answer to #2 was No.

Here's from govt website with more on answer #2:
Starting in 2014, being sick won't keep you from getting health coverage. An insurance company can't turn you down or charge you more because of your condition.
https://www.healthcare.gov/what-if-i-have-a-pre-existing-health-condition/


I didn't ask about how age would impact the insurance premium, but when you go to www.healthcare.gov it does ask your age.

There's a calculator at the site to see how much you would pay for insurance after any subsidies.

For example: a single person making only $21,000 and not qualified for medicaid, that person might pay about $97 a month for a silver plan. Might be tough for the average person to come up with that $97.

Calculate your premium and subsidies:
http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/


Here are the percentages of health care costs you pay for each type of plan.


Bronze plan: 40%
Silver plan: 30%
Gold plan: 20%
Platinum plan: 10% of your health care costs.
(The higher the out of pocket the lower the premium)

Stop The War in Syria! Send This Video to Congress

If Congress votes yes on attacking Syria, they are playing Russian Roulette with the entire world.
Congress knows that 91% of people polled are opposed to a war on Syria, that the top brass in the military doesn't support it.

Yet we know that Congress doesn't care about that. Congress doesn't represent us.
But Congress' own sense of self preservation should stop them from starting this war and possibly WWIII

Stop The War in Syria! Send This Video to Congress



note this video has been viewed almost 120,000 times. Lets triple that.
Send it to your congressman, share it with your friends.

7 Shocking WikiLeaks Revelations
Round 1 of Cablegate, Julian Assange's big reveal.

November 29, 2010 |

1. We’ve been secretly bombing Yemen.

2. U.S. uses diplomats as spies. Speaking of Clinton... she ordered diplomats to spy on government officials at the UN, gathering such info as credit card and frequent flyer numbers, computer passwords...and DNA

3. U.S. uses Guantanamo Bay prisoners as bargaining chips.

4. China’s been hacking our systems since 2002.

5. Afghanistan is corruption Disneyland. OK, no big surprise there, but it is interesting that Ahmad Zia Massoud was caught traveling to the UAE with $52 million in cash. After being detained by the DEA, he "was ultimately allowed to keep [the money

6. Iran might have long-range missiles. Practically the entire Middle East has urged the U.S

7. Putin and Berlusconi's close relationship causes alarm. "Alpha dog" Vladimir Putin and Italian partier/prime-minister Silvio Berlusconi have forged a close relationship, potentially involving shady business deals.

About the allegations made against Julian Assange:

There are no rape charges. Julian has invited Sweden to question him in the UK and Sweden refused. He answered allegations once and then Sweden dropped it, and he left Sweden.

Ironically the UK protected one of the world's worst war criminals , Pinochet from extradition, yet won't protect Julian from extradition to a country where there is no bail, trials are secret, and where Julian hasn't even been charged.

Mission Accomplished - Exxon to Drill 20 Oil Wells in Iraq

Some of us said this was the reason all along. Sad.

"Private Empire": Author Steve Coll on the State-Like Powers, Influence of Oil Giant ExxonMobil




JUAN GONZÁLEZ: We turn now to look at one of the largest and most powerful corporations in the country: ExxonMobil. In the hour it takes for this show to broadcast, ExxonMobil will earn almost $5 million in profit. Last week, the corporate giant reported that it had earned nine-and-a-half billion dollars in profits in the first three months of this year, or almost $104 million per day.

Earlier this week, ExxonMobil signed a contract with the Iraqi Drilling Company in Basra to drill 20 oil wells in one of world’s largest undeveloped fields with recoverable oil reserves. Iraq is expected to be the world’s biggest source of new oil supplies over the next few years after signing contracts for big development projects with major oil companies.
