Re: The Electoral College Was Designed To Prevent Trump. You Can Make This Happen.

Kocolicious ·
I think the most troubling is how some electoral colleges are forced to vote for the state's choice. For example if the electoral college is a red state that favors Trump, it is expected to vote for Trump. And visa versa-making it unfair for individual voting. Although Obama recommended Clinton concede early when it was clear Trump was winning, that move was extremely pre-mature as we see now. It is my hope that Clinton readdresses the vote count in those rust states that appears to be a...

I say that there should be a recount, especially in "red" and "rust belt" states, and in states that committed the most likely, illegal, purging of voter registrations, or and that "lost" ballots, etc., and in ALL states where the voting machines were switching votes from Clinton to votes for Trump. There should also be a serious investigation into Russian hacking interference. I really find it odd that Hillary would throw in the towel, give up so easily, especially against an opponent that...

I agree. We are supposed to be such an advance country and there is talk about Russia hacking the votes and those that you have mentioned. I wonder why no one was on the money in terms of professionalism, accuracy and fairness. They had enough time to ensure that the ballots, polls and such were in perfect order. I still feel this was a set up. But!

Actually, don't you think that the individual mandate is really no different than having to have car insurance (which in and of itself is an individual mandate); where it would be unfair for one or some to drive around without insurance, and when they are in an accident the person/people with insurance have to pay for that person's lack of insurance?

Ok is this issue about having health care insurance OR having access to good health care??? For me definitely about access to good health care at an affordable rate. Will we get that if we are made to carry health insurance?? What are the initiatives to recruit students to become good doctors and care about their patients??

Well, that's been the case for pretty much everybody I know ... one story said that insurance premiums have gone up by 30% yearly over the past 5 years for a lot of people!!! And, of course, with that comes a decrease in the services that are provided. Considering that many of the changes that will actually affect premiums, payments, services and quality have not gone into effect yet .... and won't for another two years ... whether or not health care will be more or less expensive than it is...

I'm not a fan of the individual mandate, but before we continue debate on which way is right how about some accountability? If a person can afford it but doesn't want to opt in and they get sick, then sin loy. I think everyone agrees that something needed to be done other than the usual congressional hot air, but we will have to see if this was the right decision ofr not. From what I've read, it is estimated that if nothing was done then cost were expected to nearly double by 2016.

I love my prez....lord knows I do. But! I'm gonna have to come to his defense on this. Cuz my thinking is....folks care MORE about their cars than their own bodies. And you can always get a new car....but not a new body. And if a person wants to drive a car, he/she must register that car, have insurance to drive that car and have current tags. Now we would make sure those things get done for our cars, but we don't wanna pay health care for ourselves. Folks call it tax, others can it fees.

Re: Dirty Tactic To Take Away Employee Rights

Last Thursday, Michigan legislators passed one of the most anti-worker pieces of legislation the state has ever seen — a so-called Right to Work bill. It jeopardizes the livelihoods of working families throughout the state, particularly families of color. After the legislature meets for a final vote, Governor Rick Snyder will decide this week whether to sign the bill into law. We need you to stand with our brothers and sisters in Michigan by urging the Governor to veto the legislation.

“We can’t keep bending the Fourth Amendment to the resources of law enforcement,” Sotomayor said . “Particularly when this stop is not incidental to the purpose of the stop. It’s purely to help the police get more criminals, yes. But then the Fourth Amendment becomes a useless piece of paper.” --I love Justice Sotormayor....she understands the situation that people of color are in.

Incongruous that he need converse at all with a creepy carnival sideshow freak. Lewis responded to a marginal tabloid clown tactically brought to high office by racist cavemen - while sort of radicals were conned by their own ignorance plus (seen the PsyOps coming?) fake news designed to dissuade people from voting for Clinton, fake news sent in droves - to multiple demographics - from Trump’s agents all across social media.
