A couple of facts for the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare hater in your life

In yesterday's core segment of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver dug into the talking points Republicans have for discussing the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Let me repeat that: he didn't dig into the actual bill to repeal it, or the bill that would replace the ACA, but the talking points Republicans use to rile up support for the repeal.

As usual, it's an interesting piece that shows just how much Republicans hate the poor, the sick, and those in need.

Watch it and make up your own mind about whether it's a good idea to repeal it.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee: "Those Are Real People: Veterans & Refugees Edition"

My admiration of Samantha Bee and her team behind Full Frontal is no secret.

This recent video highlights the hypocrisy by politicians, large parts of the infotainment industry, and political pundits that is trying to pit the needs of veterans of the U.S. military against helping refugees from Syria and other war-torn places around the globe.

It also shows the side of the U.S.A. that reminds me why it was called the land of the free and it fills me with hope.

This is the side of America, that the U.S. people must keep from being destroyed by the white supremacists, racists, anti-semites, islamophobes, and criminals that Trump—who lost the popular vote—is drawing into the White House out of the swamps he vowed to drain, and the dark crevices in hell that even the devil won't look into.
