    re Undercover with New York Nazis thanks for this link. I skimmed it just now and will have to re-read it later.

    re When did you become radicalized by the U.S. health care non-system? my story is similar. I was working at one of those good-paying STEM jobs [/s] ($8-ish/hr, and not all that long ago either), with benefits ($450/mo health insurance), living in a garage ($250/mo rent), and my out of pocket health care expenses ranged from $200-$500/mo only because I did get some of that “help” from the drug companies.

    that’s also just about the same time that I discovered the mad biologist, who led me to MMT, and I thank you for that, a million times over. I’m actually winning over (darned few) converts irl to thinking of policy (especially health care, but not limited to that) in terms of “the united states government cannot go broke” but it’s a bit of a slog.

    also, THANK YOU for the daily mad biologist trumpisms. (although I don’t think I have enough brain bleach to remove the image I now have of a backing-up taco bowl)
