This Is What Talking To You Is Like

You walk through your apartment at night without bothering to turn on the lights. Why should you? You are in familiar territory. But this is the night that you stub your toe on a table, hard. You verbalize to yourself that this jarring, intense pain will subside in sixty seconds. You might even count down to yourself to pass this time more quickly. The next time you get up for a drink in the night, you turn the light on. This is what talking to you feels like.
You go home to visit your parents. It’s relaxing to leave the city and you get a long drive through the suburbs and the country that follows to clear your head. You feel like yourself in your hometown, remembering high school and how simple it was to run around in flip flops kissing boys and singing Bon Jovi songs. You miss this kind of comfort, of feeling at peace with yourself, of knowing who you are and where your roots are. Entering your childhood home, your mom makes a negative comment about your appearance. This is what ta..

GOP health plan could shut out many

Watch Video
NEW YORK — A draft of the House Republicans’ bill to repeal Obamacare would replace its subsidies with less generous tax credits, increase the amount insurers could charge older Americans and effectively eliminate Medicaid for low-income adults.
These provisions could leave a significant share of the 20 million people who gained coverage under Obamacare without insurance. The proposal would go fully into effect in 2020.
“A substantial number of people could lose coverage because it’s no longer affordable,” said Larry Levitt, senior vice president at the non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation.
The draft bill, which was dated two weeks ago and was obtained by CNN Friday, closely follows House Republicans’ previous proposals to repeal Obamacare, though it actually offers somewhat larger tax credits and stronger protections for those with pre-existing conditions. The bill, which was first reported by Politico, has been updated since, but remains in the “same ballpark,” a GOP..

Bergdahl charges stand despite Trump saying he ‘should be shot’

A military judge has ruled against dismissing charges against Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl despite his lawyers’ claim that President Donald Trump violated their client’s due-process rights.
Bergdahl faces charges of desertion and endangering fellow soldiers after he disappeared from his base in Afghanistan in June 2009 and was held in captivity by the Taliban until May 2014.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said Bergdahl “should be shot” for walking off his post. Trump also said that “in the good old days, he would have been executed.”
The White House did not respond immediately to a request for comment Saturday on the judge’s ruling.
After Trump became president, Bergdahl’s lawyers argued the judge should dismiss the charges against their client because of Trump’s comments, contending that it would not be possible for Bergdahl to get a fair trial.
But Army Col. Jeffery Nance wrote Friday that while Trump’s comments were “troubling,” they did not constitute a sufficient due..

Sen. Kaine to crowd at ACA rally: ‘We have to win’

RICHMOND, Va. — The threat of thunderstorms didn’t stop about a hundred people to gather at the Bell Tower at the Capitol for a rally to save Obamacare Saturday.
Indivisible Richmond organized the “March to Save the A.C.A,” but the march portion of the event was canceled due to nearby lightning.
“We must save the health insurance of tens of millions of Americans,” Sen. Tim Kaine told the crowd through a megaphone. “We have to win. We have to win.”

It was a promise of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The Republicans are currently working on a new health plan to do so.
“It would be an absolute catastrophe to take health insurance away from 30 million people who desperately need it,” Sen. Kaine said.
Dr. Suzanne Richmond, a pediatrician in Spotsylvania County, was in the crowd and said about 30 percent of her patients have Obamacare.
“I have a 23-year-old who is carried by her parent’s health care plan with a pre..

Watch Nate Robinson Literally Dribble Through 7-Foot-3 Player’s Legs In NBA D-League

Nate Robinson still is playing basketball in the NBA Development League, and he did something Saturday that normally is reserved for elementary school playgrounds.
He dribbled through another player’s legs. Not just the ball — Robinson and the ball went through another player’s legs.
The other player, Edy Tavares, is 7-foot-3 and came over to trap the 5-foot-9 Robinson, which didn’t go entirely how he planned.
Take a look at Robinson’s ridiculous move.

Robinson, 32, played two games for the New Orleans Pelicans last season but has not seen an NBA court this year.
We sure hope Robinson gets one last shot at the N..
