What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo first day

"White men are an 'endangered species' in British boardrooms, says Tesco boss… Mr Allan is one of nine white men on Tesco's board of directors." Side-eye. Uh yeah, John. Sure. He then goes on to say white guys will have to work twice as hard. Dear asshole, you're on the board of a company and are paid a significant amount, you should be working 6x as hard as the rest of your employees. Get a grip. (Grokked from Ferrett Steinmetz)

Rep. Steve King drops the mask and goes full-bore white supremacist.

"The AHCA would increase the uninsured population by about 24 million people — which is more people than live in New York state. But the raw numbers obscure the cruelty of the choices. The policy is particularly bad for the old, the sick, and the poor. It is particularly good for the rich, the young, and the healthy." More people will be pushed out of the healthcare market than were added under Obamacare. It will screw over a lot of people with employer based healthcare. And if you're on Medicaid, you're screwed. How screwed, it's $800B in cuts to Medicaid to return only $340B savings over 10 years. (Grokked from Fred Clark)
