I did the same thing two years ago. Heart palpitations, shortness of breath etc. I sat in the waiting room for 5 hrs after being triaged. Hell by that time I was feeling better and was about to leave. A nurse came running out and stopped me. I had multiple blood clots in both lungs and the right side of my heart had Read more

I’m sure this is something that can be fixed with just the smallest of tweaks to our existing system. And if not, we’ll try again with another small tweak ten years further on.  Because, truly, what’s a life when profits and executive compensation hang in the balance?!

Harris wasn’t The One, but she was the one candidate who had probably the clearest path to the nomination and the broadest coalition of support in the race. It’s really weird that people want to blame the fact that it didn’t translate into an actual victory on “Kamala is a Cop.” I mean, the vast majority of people Read more
