I am so glad you finally came out and said it: The #Syria Mess is #Obama’s fault as “one man” who implemented it. And “One Woman’s” fault who was “his” architect in “his” #StateDepartment: @HillaryClinton. Bravo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
After all, in November 2011, I blew the whistle on “Both of You” And was the first to Expose your #ISIS Camp In #Turkey & Your Preparations for #Syria Operations right after #Libya @HillaryClinton #Obama. Here it is on dated & on Record: newsbud.com/2011/11/21/bfp…
Nothing like a good public confession for the soul. A few more and you may start seeing some soul cleansing.

New Promising #BreastCancer Cure Medicine by Scientists in #Turkey. Did you know: many solid new international #cancer medications are blocked in #USA per #Pharma #Chemotherapy lobby?- - - cumhuriyet.com.tr/1615243 #Cumhuriyet #cumhuriyetgzt
A few months back I met a couple from #Utah #USA in #Turkey who come here (To Turkey) 4 times a year for #Chemo alternative therapy for the wife’s cancer. They said “even with the airline tickets & hotels it is far better , more effective & far cheaper than in #USA.
Isn’t the time to say “NO” & “Enough” When human lives, health & welfare ... are all sacrificed for Big #Pharma #Lobby & #Pharma profits? Just asking.

People who aren't #LGBTQ seem not to know this happens all the time. My wife and I have both been fired for being gay. So has my bestie. I have written numerous news stories about the new trend in firing lesbian teachers who marry. There are no protections for us.
I wrote about the case before #SCOTUS Oct 8 here. ↘️ The Trump DOJ is urging the SCOTUS to rule against #LGBTQ people and for discrimination.
epgn.com/news/national/…
The Trump administration has been pushing discrimination against #LGBTQ people in every area--including the military, #healthcare, education and employment.
The breadth of this cannot be overstated. I have written about two dozen pieces this year alone.

There is a glitch in this: the premise ignores how ineffective and inefficient employer provided #healthcare is in the U.S. model. California needs #SinglePayer / #MedicareForAll to have better #health outcomes.
having the boss pay for #healthcare is absurdly expensive

it's something that @TheDemocrats like to do to our folly

1/6 It's interesting seeing older Americans go into a rage against single-payer #healthcare considering the United States already has a form of single-payer, only an extremely limited, shittier version.
2/6 Boomers complain that they don't want their money to be used to provide other people medical care—that they want their money to go to their own care—but that's *exactly* what they're doing when purchasing private health insurance.
3/6 When you purchase an insurance plan, your money is being collected by that insurance company in order to provide coverage for everyone under their network.

What if I told you that #BigTech and #SocialMedia platforms are manipulating you, steering you toward #Health information that they think is right, rather than letting you evaluate content for yourself?

Commentary by @MaryamHenein (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/google-censors…
Accredited professionals, meanwhile, who stand for #Health freedom and who criticize Big Anything, are losing posting privileges, getting banned, being buried, finding themselves deranked, and getting digitally assassinated.
Content is literally disappearing from the Internet along with our #Health choices.

It sounds conspiratorial because it is. Independent #Journalists and health experts are blowing the whistle. But it’s become a silent one.

1. Yesterday was #SuicidePreventionDay. At the start of the day, I didn't know the risk of #suicide among female #healthcare professionals is 2⃣4⃣% higher than
the national average🇬🇧 [ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulati…]. It's a scary thought.
2. After returning to #medschool and learning of the death of one of our fellow #MedStudents, this #suicide statistic really hits home.

For me #SuicidePreventionDay was a day to reflect on these potentially preventable losses; losses affecting my own family & many others... ⚰️💔
3. Most of us know #MentalHealthMatters, but raising #MentalHealthAwareness isn't always enough. We must all do more to speak up, speak out and check in with others before it's too late for another life...⌛️

👉Suicide is scary, but saving a life is simple: #AskTellSaveALife 🎗️

Doctor-patient relationship is crucial and I wonder if a patient is aware of the hospital’s policy (not the doctor) for a visit time allotment (in minutes).

@Kris_Sacrebleu We should expect a ‘rhyming’ of our mid-19th century era surrounding our Civil War.
The #GOP (POTrump-#Republicans) shall end, leaving a blessed ‘conservative power drought’ lasting about as long as the Lincoln-to-Arthur 24-yr. GOP dominant era; we’ve no time for conservatism.

@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼There will be far too much to prosecute, legislate for, and plan if we are to last another century.
Do NOT expect assassinations. Do expect continued domestic terror and prodding from, . . . wait for it . . . —RUSSIA.
The thing yoking America today, 👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼 as much as slavery once did, is the scourge of #PartyPolitics which bred corporate control via sponsorship; #Democrats thankfully do acknowledge this, so look for the Dems to do the one thing they do best: self-dismantle their own power through #ElectionReform, 👇🏼

This is your official #DemDebate2 night thread. I am just getting settled here, drinking water only because my liver is still recovering from last night, and I turn on CNN and this dude is preaching to the audience about RAAAAACCCISM! I think he's the head of the DNC. #Hectic
I can already tell I'm going to have to risk gastro upset and head for the liquor cabinet. This is going to be a disaster. #PJMDrunkBlog #DemDebate2
@CNN thinks #KristenG thinks she's being beat up on because she called for #Franken to resign. I think she's a loser because she's connected up to her ears with #NXVIM #DemDebate2 #ChildTrafficking #PJMDrunkBlog

Why healthcare is incapable of reducing its own costs:
A tutorial system analysis
#M4A #UHC #healthcare #healthcarecosts @ASlavitt @boltyboy #futurist imaginewhatif.com #healthcaredebate #healthforall
2/26
The health insurance industry's hired guns cry that Medicare For All (or any universal healthcare) would "crash the system" and "destroy healthcare as we know it."

They say that like it's a bad thing.
3/26
They say we should trust them and their cost-cutting efforts to bring all Americans more affordable health care.

We should not trust them, because the system as it is currently structured economically is incapable of reducing costs.

Why?

.@PeteButtigieg's quotes from the debate, a long thread. Divided into differently lengthened segments for your reading delight. #DemDebates #DemDebate2 #TeamPete
"I'm running for president because our country is running out of time. It is even bigger than the emergency of the Trump presidency. Ask yourself how somebody like Donald Trump ever gets within cheating distance of the Oval Office in the first place. 1/5
"It doesn't happen unless America is already in a crisis -- an economy that's not working for everyone, endless war, climate change. We have lived this in my industrial Midwestern hometown. My generation has lived this as long as we have been alive. 2/5

I was bitten by a #tick in 2011 & it utterly destroyed my life.
I contracted E. Chaffeensis, Rickettsia, & what was later found to be #Lyme.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. By then, the bacteria had invaded my spinal cord + brain.

Most deep learning #AI work to date has been supervised. 1. Now we're seeing a trend towards much more unsupervised, aka "self-supervised" (after @ylecun) or weakly supervised.

Four months after the birth of my son Carl, I was diagnosed with ALS. I had coverage, but the insurance company broke their promise. I had to sue them to cover my ventilator. Now I pay $9k per month in medical bills.

Many people have stories like mine. Do you?

#Election2020
