    If Sanders has his way, 180 million Americans who currently have private coverage would have it ripped away and be automatically enrolled in public insurance. Kids would be enrolled at birth. Medicare for All doesn’t just offer government health insurance to the needy. It makes private coverage illegal, including the health coverage you get at your job. Employers are prohibited from covering workers, retirees and their families. Sanders’ bill raises a critical question: If you’re seriously ill, will you be able to get the care you need? BernieCare guarantees you hospital care, doctors’ visits, dental and vision care, mental health...

    Laura Ingraham, the radio host and Fox News commentator, is about to become a prime time host on the conservative cable network. Ingraham is expected to take over the 10 p.m. hour on Fox News, according to people who spoke on condition of anonymity. While there may be one or two final details to negotiate, Ingraham has been telling friends that the deal is essentially done, the sources said. Her new show will be part of a broader change to the network's top-rated prime time lineup. Sean Hannity's show, currently at 10 p.m., will move one hour earlier to 9...

    North Dakota's Cara Mund claimed the crown as Miss America 2018 during Sunday night's competition at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. Miss America 2017, Savvy Shields, former Miss Arkansas, placed the crown on the 23-year-old teary-eyed successor's head as the new Miss America accepted applause and cheers from the audience and judges. Miss North Dakota emerged victorious through a series of swimsuit and talent contests, onstage speeches and two rounds of interviews by judges. In one of her onstage interviews, Mund said President Trump, a Republican, was wrong to withdraw the U.S. from the climate accord aimed at reducing greenhouse gas...

    Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge hit his 40th home run of the year Sunday in the fourth inning of the Rangers' Nick Martinez, joining Mark McGwire (1987) as the second player in the history of Major League Baseball to record 40-plus homers as a rookie. In the Yanks' 16-7 victory at Globe Life Park, Judge also became just the fourth Yankee to hit 40 homers in a season in his age-25 season or younger, joining Halll of Famers Mickey Mantle (1956), Joe DiMaggio (1937), Lou Gehrig (1927) and Babe Ruth (1920).

    WASHINGTON -- Stephen Strasburg brought the Nationals to the cusp of clinching the National League East on Sunday afternoon by tossing eight shutout innings in Washington's 3-2 victory over the Phillies at Nationals Park, and the Braves' win over the Marlins hours later pushed Washington into the postseason as the division winner. After the final out was made in Washington, some fans remained in their seats to watch the conclusion of the game in Atlanta on the scoreboard, waiting to see if a celebration was forthcoming. A few Nationals went to the dugout at times to watch, but the team...
  • ObamaCare is making the middle class the new uninsured

    09/07/2017 8:53:15 PM PDT · by TBP · 56 replies
    The Affordable Care Act added millions of mostly poor people to the insurance rolls. But the law is driving premiums so high that middle-class people can no longer afford insurance. Several million are expected to drop coverage in 2018. Under ObamaCare, poor lives matter. Middle-class lives? Not so much. The ACA is actually two laws glued together: a vast Medicaid expansion to cover the poor and a federal takeover of individual insurance markets, previously regulated by states. Since that takeover, individual premiums have more than doubled, and they’re predicted to rise another 25 percent to 35 percent next year. The...

    Her Playbill bio is longer than that of some of her co-stars. Then again, she’s had a helluva life, having narrowly escaped death row. Now, after three years on the road with “Annie,” Macy, a 9-year-old mixed terrier, is making her off-Broadway debut. In “For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday,” which opens Wednesday at Mainstage Theater, she’s billed simply as “a dog.” (Talk about typecasting.) One of her more significant bits of stage business involves gobbling up some dropped cereal. All told, it’s a long way from Oklahoma, where animal trainer Bill Berloni found Macy in December 2009.
  • On taxes and immigration, look to Hungary

    President Trump has called the indecipherable U.S. tax code ” self-destructive.” He has also decided to end the Obama-era program that allows “undocumented” immigrants who came to America as children to gain work permits. Congress would be given six months to replace it. On Jan. 1, the government of Prime Minister Viktor Orban lowered the corporate tax rate from 19 percent to 9 percent, the lowest rate among the 28 member-states of the European Union. By comparison, the United States’ top marginal tax rate is 38.92 percent, just behind Puerto Rico and the United Arab Emirates. In the last seven...

    Hurricane Irma – a Category 5 hurricane – is barreling closer towards Florida’s southern coast. But before it makes landfall this weekend, the storm has been pummeling the Caribbean with gale-force winds, sheets of rain and widespread destruction. One of the causalities has been President Donald Trump’s vacation home, Le Chateau des Palmiers on the island of St. Martin.

    ogether, we’ve swept away many government-created obstacles to our prosperity. In our fight against inflation and high interest rates, we enacted the largest budget cuts ever considered by the Congress. We produced the first real tax cut for working men and women in nearly 20 years. We slowed the pace of federal rule-making. We saw to it our money supply followed a pattern of slow, stable growth. These dramatic changes in economic policy are the dynamic result of millions of individuals coming together, committed to preserving a society where we can each seek our own goals, assured of the freedom...

    The moral fundamental is man’s right in his labor. This is variously stated. It is sometimes called “the right of property.” It is sometimes masked in the command, “Thou shalt not steal.” It is the other man’s right in his property that makes stealing a crime. When a man has earned his bread, he has a right to that bread. If another steals it, he does more than steal bread; he invades a sacred human right. If we cannot produce, we cannot have — but some say if we produce it is only for the capitalists. Capitalists who become such...
  • How union thugs get a free pass

    The recent acquittal of four Boston Teamsters charged with attempting to extort the producers of the popular “Top Chef” television show is the latest illustration of a loophole in federal law that permits organized labor to engage in acts of extortion that would be illegal if anyone else tried it. Since a 1973 Supreme Court decision exempted union extortion and racketeering actions from the Hobbs Act, so long as the object being extorted constituted a legitimate union objective, union thugs have been getting a free pass on violence and threats such as what occurred in June 2014. Perhaps inspired by...
  • Antifa Supporters Cry Over Trevor Noah’s Daily Show Segment Mocking Antifa

    The Daily Caller ^ | 09/01/2017 | Ian Miles Cheong
    The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah described the far-left extremist movement Antifa as “Vegan ISIS” Thursday night, among a host of other jokes and insults rebuking the group of violent anarchists. Noah’s jokes follow the establishment media’s change in stance towards the extremist movement, which earned widespread ire following violence in Berkeley last weekend. During the protest, random onlookers, conservatives, and journalists were assaulted by gangs of black-clad “anti-fascists.” The group even went after a comedian dressed as a popcorn vendor, deeming him a capitalist. Naturally, members of Antifa and their left-wing sympathizers did not take Noah’s jokes lightly. From accusations...
  • ‘Great Comet,’ Broadway hit shuttered by political correctness, delivers final performance

    When skygazers looked up at the Great Comet at the turn of the 19th century, some saw it as a dire omen of Napoleon’s invasion of Russia and other events of catastrophic proportion. Today, the Great Comet presages a different sort of threat — the one posed to art by political correctness. “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812,” the Broadway hit based on a 70-page excerpt of Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” delivered an emotional final performance Sunday to a packed crowd at the Imperial Theatre. The decline became evident when Josh Groban, the singer-songwriter who played Count...
  • “d”

    Ricochet ^ | Pat Sajak
    On this Labor Day my thoughts are with a laborer I wish I had taken the time to know better: For much of my life, I carried an extra letter with me. It was a “d.” My name was Patrick Sajdak, S-a-j-d-a-k. It was pronounced as it is today (SAY-JACK), but that silent letter baffled teachers. They inevitably struggled with my name, and my fellow students enjoyed teasing me with the results of those struggles. The pronunciation difficulties followed me through school, the Army and into my adult years. I hated that “d.” When I began to work in television,...
  • This is why all union dues should be voluntary

    Post of New York ^ | September 3, 2017 | 9:37pm | Updated | By Mark Mix
    The basic case for right-to-work is simple: Forcing workers to pay money to a union they don’t support is wrong. This is why polling consistently shows that Americans overwhelmingly support right-to-work, including strong majorities of independent, Republican and Democratic voters. There are other reasons to support right-to-work, too. Workplace freedom is an economic engine, with private-sector job creation rates in right-to-work states double those in forced-unionism states between 2006 and 2016. Plus, right-to-work laws make union officials more accountable to rank-and-file members. Without right-to-work, employees must pay up or be fired. With voluntary dues, workers can withhold financial support from...
  • Nikki Haley: Kim Jong-un is ‘begging for war’; U.N. diplomats call for more sanctions

    North Korea’s leader is “begging for war,” the U.S. ambassador said Monday at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council, as members called for punishing the country with even stronger sanctions for its powerful nuclear test. Ambassador Nikki Haley said the U.S. would look at countries doing business with the North and planned to circulate a resolution this week with the goal of getting it approved Sept. 11. “Enough is enough. War is never something the United States wants. We don’t want it now. But our country’s patience is not unlimited,” Haley said. “The United States will look at...

    CTE is a degenerative brain disease confirmable only after death, and often caused by repeated blows to the head that knock the brain against the skull. The cumulative impacts of hundreds of supposedly minor blows can have the cumulative effect of many concussions. The New York Times recently reported Stanford researchers’ data showing “that one college offensive lineman sustained 62 of these hits in a single game. Each one came with an average force on the player’s head equivalent to what you would see if he had driven his car into a brick wall at 30 mph.” Boston University researchers...

    But the Clinton e-mail scandal, like Clinton herself, won’t go away. It remains a blot on the legacy of the Obama administration, the Justice Department and the FBI, and now comes fresh evidence that the investigation that cleared her was a total sham. The revelation from the Senate Judiciary Committee that J. Edgar Comey drafted his statement exonerating her about two months before FBI agents interviewed Clinton or 16 other witnesses confirms suspicions that the probe was neither honest nor thorough. When the outcome is decided long before the investigation is over, the result can’t be trusted. There is only...

    These 10 rules will help you make emotions work for you, instead of against you. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify emotions (in both yourself and others), to recognize the powerful effects of those emotions, and to use that information to inform and guide behavior. It begins with learning how emotions work, but it goes much further. Specifically, how do you start putting that knowledge into practice? If you'd like to make emotions work for you, instead of against you, pay attention to the following "10 commandments." I. THOU SHALT PONDER THY FEELINGS.
