Mandating cheap insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions is basically a form of tax farming. Healthy people are taxed, in the form of an increased premium, to subsidize benefits for the unhealthy. Many people seem to think it's magic free money because it comes out of insurance premiums instead of overt taxes.

Pretty dark humour, in poor taste for most people... but nothing to do with plod.

Those complaining went out of their way to watch it and spread it... if Plod are involved these people (Piers, Abbot, May etc) should be investigated for promoting it and distributing it.

Accidentally heard BBC Radio 4 - half a dozen people on talking about how the Democrats could go about shutting down Trump... *Nothing* about how the Republicans could shut down the Democrats.

Zero balance - just 'goodies' and 'baddies' in the BBC world view... yawn.

Maybe I should post more from here rather than as @pperrin ?

William Hagues 1977 speech set out what a Conservative government needed to do... 40 years on, nothing has changed (at least not for the better!).

Cultural role models.

The west gave its kids many role models for good, decent, honest behaviour - historic, legendary and mythical.

Cultures with less savoury role models are less savoury.

Now progressives are destroying our good role models, destroying our kids and culture.

Pride in your historic past is not nonsense as we keep being told today, it is the root which gave us peaceful civilisation - and is exceptional.

Others can adopt it, bit they have to actively want to do so.

Pro Tip: If you find the federated timeline too full of stuff not for you... you can select a toot you don't want and the mute that user or their whole instance.

Mastodon can be whatever you want it to be!

Now we are ten!

It's early days,. I've followed a bbc-world feed to add something to the federated time line. Zero hedge is rather active! I am still working on some software to bring in some relevant news/rss feeds - want to say anything, go ahead we are all friends here!

If you want dont want to go totally public the 'globe' under the toot input area lets you narrow down who can see what you write!

Tiptaptiptap.... I am writing some code to pull stories from RSS feeds and toot them - news headline kind of stuff, top blogs etc. Good progress being made.

If you want an easy way to toot a webpage you are looking at there is a bookmarklet you can drag to your bookmarks at the end of tis page free-english-people.blogspot.c
