Eagle@bellsouth.net (J. Hugh Sullivan): Jul 15 06:15PM

...sometimes know as the unAffordableCA.
 
Senate: move to the left on Medicaid cuts and taxes, i.e., pass
something, Dumbos (the GoP elephant).
 
Smelling a liberal fart is better than shovelling liberal shit. A fart
doesn't last long - liberal shit is eternal.
 
Then by Executive Order or any legal means, whether ethical or not,
undo the move to the left. IOW bypass the left leaning GoPers.
 
Tell me why it wouldn't work - I don't give the north end of a south
bound rat whether you like it.

Because the ONLY legal means to undo it would be to pass
another law. If the only way the moderates will support the
initial bill is by changing something for them it's stupid to
expect them to vote to remove it later.

Well, both parties have been justifying their pet spending or tax cuts by cutting medicare reimbursements a couple of years down the line, then when the time comes they always pass a bill delaying the cuts.
 
This does seem to be McConnell's strategy this time... reassure each side that the parts of the latest bill that they don't like will be repealed or delayed in the future.

And the moderates are (rightly) refusing to believe
him.

I worked in 3 different departments (9 years) before moving to an
office (26 years).
 
The three were open areas and I had absolutely no problem with it. I
never conducted private business during working hours during that
time. I think that's the way it should be for non-manager types. IOW I
walked in those shoes.
 
People in the bullpen needed to pass paperwork almost constantly for
more than half the month. Cubicles hamper that and you often have to
guess where people are.
 
Once you have people reporting to you the situation changes. You are
responsible for the success of the entire group, not just for
yourself. With that comes an office and other privileges - and the
occasional need for privacy when discussing with your staff. Plus, why
should I have to walk through a maze to speak to one of the staff.

I worked in open spaces with programmers many times.
It is good.
Cubes and closed door offices are also good.
 
Saw a movie where the open space had stripes on the floor
marking where cube walls would be and transgressing the
stripes got the transgressor yelled at.
 
30 years. Do you not have the option of an office with
a door that closes?

>Paper?
 
I retired in 28 Feb 1987.
 
Programmers wanted you to do it their way at that time and I refused.
Shortly before I retired they became sophisticated enough to program
the way we needed it. The conversion began shortly before I left and
required a year or more to complete.
 
Example: There was a complex job we did manually. When the computers
were programmed to do the job, of course they were much faster than I
was. BUT I did the job faster if you start when it went to Data
Processing and ended when it was returned complete. Key punch and
waiting time was slow - I was not.
 
A MENSA friend programmed a TRS80 Model III to do the same thing about
that time. The Company needed IBM and Bendix. Everybody is on the
server now.

1. win at least one house in 2018
2. start issuing uncomfortable oversight subpeonas
3. explain to him privately that if he sees the light on single payer, this embarrassing Russia stuff can be back burnered
 
alternate 3:
 
3a. In an attempt to get the Russia dogs called off, Trumps sees the light on single payer
3b. In attempt to salvage his reputation as a deal maker who can get things done, Trump sees the light on single payer after the GOP repeatedly fails to repeal and replace obamacare, or they do and it's crazy unpopular
 
bottom line: GOP riding high now, but they may find the drawbacks of electing a president with no real principles except "win" and "get something done". Liberal Dems from the 1990s say hi.

Here is how the Antarctic glacier works.
Snow falls on Antarctica.
Snow compresses.
Gravity draws the ice to the sea.
Ice flakes off.
We call these flakes icebergs.

I'm tired of the LEDSEVERYWHERE trend.
 
It was one thing when all the car folks started following BMW's lead. Now, everything I own has an LED. We were out shopping today when my son noticed a camping hammock with LEDs in the outer seam.
