1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    maxflinn Tulsi Gabbard 2020.

    Every time a progressive politician goes on to the so-called 'left-wing' media in the US ie, CNN, MSNBC etc to talk about the need for medicare for all he/she is basically ridiculed by the presenters for doing so, and medicare for all is portrayed as a socialist pipe dream by these grotesque people who make millions propagandising for the elites.

    It's the same story when one of these type of politicians goes on to lament US warmongering. These agents of the elites ridicule, and promote war.

    The Washington Post, The New York Times etc. Just as bad.

    All act in the interests of the sick ruling establishment to the detriment of society as a whole.

    Combined they will try to push the corporate, warmongering Democratic candidates for 2020, many of whom claim they want free health care, while ridiculing the ones who genuinely want the progressive policies so badly needed, like Bernie, and Tulsi Gabbard.

    Grotesque, just grotesque.

    I think I'm a bit too old for your points based immigration system, but thanks.

    The key to US healthcare is either be exceptionally wealthy and pay through the nose or be exceptionally poor and get Medicaid. Or perhaps quite old and craft a decent Medicare.
    Anyone else is pretty much SOL unless their employer provides a decent plan and saves you quite a bit. And employers hate paying that.

    US is one of the worst countries in the world for health care, over the whole population.
    Healthcare in the US is a great racket to be in as long as you can sleep at night

    I have been thinking this whole US health care(hah!) thing through, its disgusting, and as I am nearing retirement, my plan is to say screw any health care plan, will not be able to afford it anyway, enjoy what money and time I will have left, and when it gets ridiculous, nothing that good old Smith & Wesson cannot take care of with one shot. And really, I am okay with it.

    ^^ Suggest you look at retiring to Panama, Costa Rica and Ecuador before you blow your head off.
