A move to open up competition in drugs wold have been one of the few things in Obamacare worth having. It was not to be as big pharma bought off Obama and Democratic senators to keep it from happening.
An amendment to open up competition in drug pricing was narrowly defeated in the Senate Vote-a-Rama last night, but that defeat was not binding by any means.
More importantly, Trump’s Drug-Price Stance Puts Pharma on Notice.
F.Y.I...In the photo...The water is only a few feet deep... Almaden is tiny...You could almost have a kegger party and fill it with piss...
Prices should be listed ...Rats per square foot...or even better Cockroaches per square inch...
Same should apply to San Francisco...
In 2006, Barack Obama famously said that “we are no longer just a Christian nation“, and after the last eight years that is now more true than ever. The Pew Research Center has just released a major report entitled “How America Changed During Barack Obama’s Presidency“, and what struck me the most about the report was the fact that it showed that the United States became a lot less Christian while Obama was in the White House. Of course this trend did not begin under Obama, but it seems to have accelerated during his presidency.
In particular, the percentage of Americans that have no religion at all is really growing rapidly. According to the report, “nones” now make up nearly a fourth of our entire population…

NASA has released a graphic showing a rip in the fabric of the sun, so to speak, that is leaking solar radiation through a hole in its surface.
This is sending a bombardment of particles towards earth that could interfere with the electric grid and disrupt any technologies that are electromagnetic based.
The experts aren’t expecting a major storm this time – with only a G2 warning issued for the current onset of unusual solar activity. This will be enough only to heighten the aurora borealis effects and test the real world resilience of satellites and other sensitive equipment.
Here’s what it looks like:
It’s always unnerving to learn that there was a giant hunk of space rock flying so close to the Earth you almost needed to duck.
Like the asteroid that did a fly-by at just half the distance between the Earth and the moon on Monday of this week.
Unlike the movie Armageddon, we may not have enough warning for Bruce Willis and friends to get on a rocket and go blow it up before it hits us.
