The White House stopped federal payments, called cost sharing reductions as part of the Obama administrations Affordable Healthcare.  According to some insurance providers, the decision has destabilized the insurance industry with one company saying increases for 2018 is slated to go up from a projected 8 percent to 41 percent. 

The extreme increases will hurt consumers on both sides.  However, some states are making changes to mitigate the hikes the unpaid amount will ultimately be covered by taxpayers. 

For those people who do not qualify for state aid, would be required to pay the full increase amount.  For a guy worth $3.8 billion, no big deal, but for most Americans its bad.

Good Ole America --She never Fails to Incite

America the Inciteful

Roy, Utah, is the latest location in which a racist, who says he is not a racist has posted something stupid.  Kade Rogers a former Marine is exercising his first amendment rights by posting a divisive sign on his garage door. 

His neighbors don’t like it and are saying that it is offensive despite the complaints he insists on keeping the sign up.  Of course he is a Trump supporter, and has written on the sign “Make America great Again, Purge and Purify.” 

Rogers is cowardly playing the sign off by saying its Halloween and it has nothing to do with race.  But, wait, that’s not all!  How many times have you heard this one, "I kind of knew it was going to happen (controversy) but it's my right, it's not racist. I'm not meaning to be racist, in no way, in fact, I have a black friend. His name is Isaac." 

Cliché?

Columbus is said to have discovered America, a boast that has led to controversy and rightly so.  Europeans have traditionally celebrated this man’s voyage to the Americas, when in fact he was completely lost and served to single handedly kill millions of Native Americans in the process. 

We talk about genocide of Jewish people which was wrong and of others which was wrong, but this voyage caused the end for 50 million indigenous people in this hemisphere.   Europeans introduced small pox a disease ravaged the natives and cleared the land for others to move in and take over.  It’s a process that has been successful worldwide.

It was something I thought I could trust him with because he had a portfolio. I was wrong.”

Loss of Sense of smell points to Dementia

Fish Stink

Scribe:  Lucy Osbourne

Email:  lucy@thethinkering.com

 

Can you smell peppermint?  Researchers from the university of Chicago Medical Center says along with sleeplessness, mental confusion and mood swings the inability to smell is another symptom of deadly dementia. 

3000 people were examined between the ages of 57 to 85, testing their ability to smell, fish, rose, leather, orange and peppermint.  78 percent of subjects named at least four out of five scents, 14 percent could have distinguished at least three, and five percent could recognize two, with just two percent only able to identify one smell. 

The rub is of those people who could only distinguish just one smell, after five years were all diagnosed with dementia.  Scientist say the sense of smell is directly linked to brain function and general health.
