I want to buy into the hope too. If I give up dreaming of all bold promises because they seem unlikely, what do I dream for? And the nutjobs gaining attention across the fence are a nightmare.

I'm envious of $290 a month for healthcare. Being self-employed the ACA has been critical for me, because I am also diabetic. Those who wish to dismantle the plan, I guess are beneficiaries of employer paid plans that do not discriminate for those with prior conditions.

My insurance costs alone (I opted for lower deductible) are $570 and my other supplies bring my monthly health care costs to almost $800. I discovered in January, when everything is reset, that my insurance has separate deductible minimums for prescriptions (my insulin) than "durable medical equipment" (the replaceable parts for my insulin pump), so I doubled my monthly cost already in January.

I thought this was excessive until I researched and found my percentages to income are pretty average. A terrible average. The cost of arcane rules, paperwork (like sending a bill of $1.87 for my 20% of a lab test) is insanity in action.

Healthcare seems though a monster that cannot be destroyed without an outright nuclear blast. The people most adversely affected have the minimal voices.

Damn, this depresses me. I'd see someone about it, but the costs.....

 

@rushaw Lemme know when you find that strategy!

A lot of resonance with Ben's reflections on presence online. This idea that online me is distinct from me me has always felt a false construct. I am me, period. Ironic too considering Ben's efforts with known to be dealing with questions of his online social presence.

So Ben is there a known to medium gizmo yet? And how do you get the comment thing at the bottom of your posts?

 

I'm hoping there will be a tumblr plugin for @withknown - it seems such a natch!

 

Trying to get more on the @withknown cycle on my silly mashups. Back posted a few classics (IMPB In My Puny Brain) from 2014 at http://klown.cogdogblog.com/

Brilliant idea to focus on audio only for an episode. It's also worthy to watch some maybe not all without audio and focus on the camera work.

For some interesting ideas on relationship of photos and captions I love Errol Morris Liar Liar Pants on Fire http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/07/10/pictures-are-supposed-to-be-worth-a-thousand-words
