A reminder that $3000 used to be a scary “high deductible” plan that came with that HSA thing.

Also a reminder that premiums doubled due to the provisions that made insurers assume you were high risk

AssocAmerPhys&Surg @AAPSonline
The Hill has it partially right. ACA is a wealth transfer. But it's a transfer from the pockets of the middle class to the bank accounts of insurers. Sure the insurers *might* pay for some care... after your $6000 to $12000 deductible is met. thehill.com/policy/healthc…

Where was that in '10? Oh, right. We had to pass it to see what was in it.

rich

the old lurker question:

i am a current resident in an apartment complex with a lease expiring sometime june 2021. my dad is visiting me currently, and wants to stay in the area for health and personal reasons (friends and family are close to here and he has access to better doctors here than in florida) and we executed a lease on an apartment for him, with me listed as co-applicant, and both applications for him and me were approved. i am now told by the leasing manager they will not rent the apartment because it is "against the rules"? i can't find anything in my lease spelling this out (renting more than one unit in the complex) and if it is "against the rules" why was the application approved?

the location of the apartment is in montgomery county md.

this is a residential lease so might not be your wheelhouse, but any insight you might have would be helpful. you can send anything over to my email address if you prefer to keep it off the board.

and by-and-by my dad fell this afternoon and is in the hospital a few miles from here so any prayers would be appreciated.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

You guys are so full of crap.
It's well known that the dinosaurs were warm blooded and therefore there is no reason that if the lizard people are descendants of the dinosaurs that they couldn't live in Antarctica and tunnel thousands of miles under the sea to battle the zombie hordes. Hey, birds are descendants of dinosaurs; maybe penguins are the lizard people wearing little tuxes!
Regardless, your irrational skepticism is pissing me off.

Captain Hate

Not to belittle Mr. clarice but "understanding the tax code" is a stretch since often differing sections are at odds with each other, the IRS won't give directions they'll be bound by and the answer ends up being what a tax court judge says it is. In that particular case. Does it get more derp state than that?

He probably is up to date on tax court rulings, though...

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

"U.S. District Judge Michael Watson wrote that while Ohio’s signature-matching requirements impose a “moderate" burden on voters" blah blah blah

Well, it is a surmountable problem. I will be an election volunteer this year, working for the County Registrar of Voters. I also took an "Election Observation" training class online with the Election Integrity Project and hope to be an election observer during the election.

One thing I learned about is signature verification.
Our training gave us the rules that the workers should be following (we'll see how closely they follow). But also, we learned that CA is already at 75% mail in ballots.
CA loosened the requirements for in-person voting years ago. So they must have solved the signature verification difficulty a long time ago. Unless they are ignoring signatures.

FINGERS CROSSED FOR A SPEEDY AND FULL RECOVERY, RICH. Is there anything in the lease prohibiting a tenant from renting a second apt in the complex? It sounds as if the problem if that you are a co-applicant. Montgomery County surely has a housing authority you can run this by,

Strzok injecting himself into the Flynn hearing:

Kyle Cheney @kyledcheney
1h
JUST IN: A lawyer for Peter STRZOK says some of the agent's notes recently made ublic by the FLYNN defense team "appear to have been altered," including with at least one handwritten notation that is incorrect >>>

These are the two pages of notes highlighted by Strzok's attorney. One has a handwritten notation of 1/4-5/17.

Another has a notation of 3/28/17. Unclear which is the one with the incorrect date, per Strzok's attorney.


STRZOK's attorney also points out somethign we've been noting recently: The disclosures by the Flynn team appear to violate a court order issued by Sullivan months ago, asking them to stop filing piecemeal documents until the DOJ review is complete.


Also of note: Sullivan granted Strzok's attorney leave to file his letter.

Jimsc thanks for the funny sign about commas a few threads back! Kind of a strange sign for a lumber yard! My parents would roll over in their grave (they share ) if I ever raised a sign of that ilk outside of the store!

DrJ, sorry about your beloved cat. Rich, prayers for your father.

Re the taxes. Big whoop. Why are we all carrying on about what the NYT prints? I heard about it and thought “typical.” Whatever, it’s all within the wonderful tax laws passed by the morons in DC so big yawn. Plus reading about taxes gives me a headache. No offense intended to those who are debating it, but really why do we all get up in arms about the lyin’ NYTs?

Also there was a discussion that went over my head re light or some such. All I can say is I don’t like getting up for work while it is still dark.

One customer commented that she is done with the masks. SIL mentioned that Bill Gates says blah blah blah. I said, “Oh who cares what Bill Gates thinks. Just because he’s a gazillionaire he thinks he can dictate what we should be doing.” SIL said she hates him too, and then the woman says, “ I hate him too!” Best conversation I had all day!

Schweikart on the Texas student vote which I can personally guarantee ain't materializing this year. This hurts Texas Dems bigtime and not just in statewide races.

My UT workplace was a polling location in 2018 and I believe easily recorded more votes for Beto than any single polling place in the state. If that's possible to check I'd love to know the numbers.

Looks like my dad will be discharged tomorrow. Could have been today, but they need to set him up at home with oxygen and a hospital-type bed to allow him to be semi-reclined. Hopefully that's all temporary.

Via Althouse, Sean Ono Lennon risking disinheritance:

Sean Ono Lennon @seanonolennon

Sincere and earnest question I don’t know answer to: Is there truly anything illegal or unconstitutional about either him nominating a judge for SCOTUS just before election, or him not paying a lot of taxes while essentially bankrupt? I can’t find real evidence. Please explain.

Not sure where his brains came from, I guess regression to the mean.

GUS

Jim nj, I wonder what his EXISTENTIAL CRISIS was.

Porchlight

Sean Lennon is quite the dude. He's been on this train for a long time. I never thought I'd see the day. If he votes I bet it's for Trump.

jimmyk

Oops, spoke to soon about my dad being discharged. He's still having significant oxygen issues, so they have to get that figured out.

Pinandpuller

If Brad Parscale was day drinking Coors Lights I’m going to have to back the blue on this one.

Porchlight

jimmyk, I'd add that John Lennon and Yoko Ono were/are quite intelligent, even if they didn't always put it to critical thinking use. Family Ties effect.

Some people say Lennon was fairly conservative or at least reactionary in the years before he died, and maybe even supported Reagan. Idk. He was such a jerk, I disregarded anything that came out of his mouth.

Porchlight

Ouch, Pin. ;)

Pinandpuller

GUS

You know, we can rule out Nadler eating something that disagreed with him because he didn’t try to murder it.

Porchlight

Thanks for the update on your dad, jimmyk. Hope they can get it sorted out.

Jane

OL.

After watching Tucker, I’m falling into your abyss. Hopefully Laura can pull me out.

jimmyk

Porch, yes, I remember that now about Lennon maybe supporting Reagan, though I don't know if that was ever confirmed. I was half-kidding with the "brains" remark as I'm sure they both are/were fairly intelligent, but not always putting it to good use. It's good to see Sean using his brains.

GUS

As virtually everyone here knows. I loves me some BEATLES. I'm not in love with any of the members. I liked McCartney and his style MOAR, but I recognized how great John Lennon was in many ways, including the most under rated RHYTHEM guitarist in history. However. He and Joko were drug addled nuts.

SEAN HAS A NET WORTH OF $200,000,000.00
Definitely FUCK YOU MONEY.

GUS

Pin, I think the FUZZ took down Parscale, because he's black.

GUS

Jane, there is more to come. No one is changing their mind about TRUMP to vote for a DEMENTED CORRUPT PERV who couldn't raise his own kid right, in fact aided and abetted corruption with CHINA and UKRAINE.
We are in the openings of a civil war. The MEDIA is all in on the criminals.

Is it a fifty five plus complex rich, but that shouldnt pose a problem

Porchlight

Yes, Sean definitely has fuck you money, GUS. I'm sure that makes his freethinking less onerous. But knowing nutballs are always out there...and his dad's fate...that's not nothing.

I gravitate more toward McCartney's work as I age. Post-Beatles Lennon is total crap IMO. Harrison and Ringo each showed notable genius here and there in their solo work. But McCartney is the musical master.

It's hopeless sorting their political opinions. The thought that Lennon might have had some sense is comforting. Ringo also seems like a pretty down-to-earth guy. McCartney, totally foolish in that department.

Since the Dakota and Trump International are practically next door to each other in NYC terms, I've come to associate them with each other. LOL.

I’ve been busy. Staying quiet here.

Thanks. We’re trying to decide on purchasing an existing facility or property and build new. It’s been almost 3 years of headaches.

Porchlight

Hear you Gentlejim. My church also faced the same dilemma. I wasn't on the vestry then but I increasingly feel that their choice (building new, but on a comparatively remote property not visible from a major road) was not the correct one to grow the church.

Thank you Porch. I was dismayed to find McCartney is as self absorbed and liberal as he is, but I try very hard not to let the interfere with my love of his music DURING and AFTER the FAB 4.
I actually had this discussion with MRS yesterday on a wee road trip. We listened to a lot BEATLES.
In fact my wife and I have played (piano guitar) and sang at all of our siblings weddings.
I actually played "Til there was you" on the altar just before she came down the aisle at our wedding. Of course I sang as well.

A lot of Lennon's was tripe too but a couple were passable.
