    “Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs.” Thank you President Trump for producing an environment that even Melisa can prosper without the help of ProgressNow Colorado.

    Help! Y and Z are confusing me. Does Y result in an independant comission and Z leave it up to the legislature with modifications? Wiser and better informed minds please comment.

    What’s the Difference Between Trump and a Russian Twitter Troll?

    One’s a 44-year-old accountant who faces five years in prison on federal charges. The other is the president.

    Thank you both! I am a lot better informed now.

    WOTD from Vox: "White House Releases Proof that Socialized Medicine Works."

    The go-to chart lists percentage of seniors with wait-times for an appointment with a specialist for different countries. At the top, 20% of US seniors wait for over a month, while at the bottom, 59% of Canadians are scheduling their appointments out a month.

    The punchline? US Seniors are on Medicare, meaning their appointment wait times are experienced within a socialized insurance system.

    As we all know, in the US if you don't have insurance or don't have money, your wait times are "to die for". If you have a pre-existing condition, well then it depends on whether insurance companies are permitted to deny insurance.

    On the other hand, thanks to Obamacare, if you are on the individual market in a state with a good insurance exchange, then you have access to insurance at a reasonable cost.

    Now that Trump is proudly proclaiming that he is a Nationalist, can it be long before he rebrands the Republican Party to become the Nationalists Arise Zero Immigrants Party? 

    Betcha he'd even invent a snazzy new geometric symbol to sear the party's image into everyone's mind!

    Bannon, Miller, and at least 25% of Americans would rejoice!

      Is her geographic imprecision typical of the rest of her posts? 

      The Google maps version says it is only 388 hours of walking from Tapachula Mexico where the caravan was on Monday to Puerto Vallarta, where the storm is tonight.

    Anybody read in the Colorado Sun and Kyle Clark's Twitter about 61,000 missing ballots in Adams County?
