Why? Her album is great. Just not written by her. Diana Ross never wrote a song in her life. Aretha only wrote like 8-10. Gladys never wrote anything either.

It is not the not writing the music that is the issue. It is lying about it. Because here is the deal. Whoever gets writing credit gets the $$$ from the album Read more

The problem in my mother’s case was that she hadn’t even been properly diagnosed before the Medicaid hustle began. She went to the ER on a Monday morning and on Tuesday morning the social worker’s FIRST WORDS to me were “what’s her monthly income?”. It took three ER visits and a stint in rehab (20 days) before I Read more

Obviously I don’t know your specific situation, but as someone who work primarily with elderly people (hospice) often times nursing homes are your only option, unless you are willing to care for your parent yourself. IME 9 times out of 10 if the PT rehab is pushing your mom into long term care, it usually means there Read more

I work at a large disability nonprofit in Tennessee. We opted out of the Medicaid expansion. We were already a horrible state for the disabled community. We have now become even worse. I field calls weekly from people who are quite literally dying. They are dying simply because they don't have money. Do you know what Read more

I had to deal with Medicaid when my elderly mother became disabled. Literally the only thing they were interested in was looting her for everything she had. The hospital “social workers” I dealt with were nothing more than Medicaid shills, mostly concerned about the “assessed value” of her property, her benefits and Read more

Seeing Seth Abramson “distinguish” himself as a Russia conspiracy guy has been hilarious, because prior to this he was noted (and sometimes criticized) in the creative writing community for putting together his own alternative rankings of MFA programs. It’s weird seeing a poet guy, who once lived on MFA blogs I looked Read more

Remember to vote in November. It won’t solve anything, but it’ll at least be a start. We can go from there.

Iowan here. This man’s story is not shocking. The amount of cuts that Reynolds and her predecessor my parents so lovingly termed “Braindead” inflicted on healthcare and everything else are devastating. These companies have done nothing but harm those in their care. Braindead slashed the number of psychiatric beds in Read more

Def don’t rewatch Mrs. Doubtfire. You just feel bad for Sally Fields for hours. Except for the part where she gets to be with Pierce Brosnan.

American Heartland: “You urban, liberal elites just don’t understand rural (read: “real”) Americans”

Me, a progressive who left Kansas for the coasts: “No, we understand rural Americans fine; you’re why we left and hesitate to return. You make it clear that unless we’re white, god-fearing, conservative, and hetero then Read more
