So in other words, it started under Obama, though frankly it started under Bush, if not sooner. Obama just helped. One of the problems with removing DeJoy is one of Obama’s appointments is a big supporter.

But with ICU bed availability at 8%, that has been stopped. Adding more pressure to Idaho’s healthcare system.
A lot of things to unpack here. A couple: One can only imagine how bad things would be with an illness that had even a 10 or 20 percent fatality rate. Or some major disaster. For profit healthcare has no interest in having lots of excess…[Read more]

The people running this country don’t care about its citizens anymore than they did their supporters in Afghanistan. We are just here to have our labor and whatever little wealth extracted for their benefit. Discarded and left to die.
Just like the British Islands were from the Vikings.

Run a blue berry farm and after picking I asked what % of their crop they lost and they estimated at least a third which agreed with my range of 25-50%.
