    Insurers: Number of Insured Has Climbed by Millions
    Posted at 9:27 a.m. today

    Politico: “A panel of health insurers agreed Tuesday that the number of insured people in the country has climbed by millions, despite arguments by some Republicans that the insured population has declined because of canceled plans.”

    Karen Ignagni, CEO of the trade group America’s Health Insurance Plans said that “the rush of sign-ups late in the Affordable Care Act’s first enrollment period – which ended March 31 – were significantly younger than the earliest enrollees.”

    Paul Ryan Won’t Let Poor People Testify At Hearing About Poverty

    By Bryce Covert April 30, 2014 at 12:30 pm Updated: April 30, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    On Wednesday, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) will hold a hearing on poverty called “A Progress Report on the War on Poverty: Lessons from the Frontlines.” While it will feature three experts, none of them are actually low-income Americans who struggle to get by.

    But that’s not for lack of trying from some poor people themselves. Witnesses to Hunger, an advocacy project that shares the stories of low-income Americans, has tried and failed twice to have some of their members who live in poverty speak at Ryan’s poverty hearings. “When Ryan had his first hearing last July,” Director Mariana Chilton told ThinkProgress, “we wrote to his office to see if we could testify, but they weren’t interested.” While Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) tried to get one of their low-income members to speak, it was too late. They were asked to submit written testimony instead.

    Chilton’s organization stayed in touch with his office and immediately called his press team when they saw the announcement for Wednesday’s hearing. “They said, ‘It’s too late, we’ve already chosen our people.’” There was one slot left to be filled by Democrats, but that went to Marian Wright Edelman, president of the Children’s Defense Fund. “I think Marian Wright Edelman is a great choice,” Chilton said. But “they had a stronger interest in having a more well-known person to testify.” That means that once again, the hearing won’t feature anyone who really is on the frontlines of poverty. “None of the people who are testifying today are currently living in poverty and it’s unclear if they really know what’s going on from the perspective of people living in it,” she said.

    And the written testimonies they submitted will probably do little to impact the conversation. “They’re submitted and they disappear,” Chilton said. Tianna Gaines-Turner sent in a document last year, and this year Barbie Izquierdo has done the same. “If you look at the July hearing for the War on Poverty, you don’t see evidence of Tianna Gaines-Turner’s submitted testimony,” she added. It’s not on the website for the hearing, despite her requests to his office that they include the document, although it has been included on page 64 of the record. Izquierdo’s will probably meet the same fate. “Asking for formal written testimony is a way to let Paul Ryan’s office off the hook,” she said.

    Rep Bennie Thompson to CNN: I meant what I said and said what I meant.
    —————————–
    Rep. Thompson doubles down on racial remarks in interview with CNN’s Dana Bash

    Bash: When you said Clarence Thomas was an “Uncle Tom,” what did you mean by that?

    Thompson: “Well if you look at his decisions on the court, they have been adverse to the minority community, and the people I represent have a real issue with an African American not being sensible to those issues.”

    Bash: Isn’t that a racially charged term?

    Thompson: “For some it is, but to others it’s the truth.”

    Bash: Because looking at that and hearing that kind of language, that certainly wouldn’t be appropriate if it was coming from somebody who was white.

    Thompson: “But I’m black.”

    Bash: That makes it OK?

    Thompson: “I mean, you’re asking me the question, and I’m giving you a response. The people that I represent, for the most part, have a real issue with those decisions–voter ID, affirmative action, Affordable Care Act–all those issues are very important and for someone in the court who’s African American and not sensitive to that is a real problem.”

    —-‘Millionaire’ contestant gives impromptu African dance lesson- -

    – —One Who Wants to be a Millionaire contestant showed off his
    knowledge of African dance moves during the show, and the hilariously embarrassing result has been making its way around social media.

    Earlier this week, Jeff Hunsicker joined the show, and when the
    show’s host Cedric The Entertainer found out he took an African dance class in college, he asked the contestant for a demonstration.

    The Pennsylvania native danced, and even Cedric was unsure of what to do.

    At the conclusion, Cedric jokes that he stuck with the dougie,
    saying, “You were doing African dance, I was doing African-American.”

    While most comments have been applauding Hunsicker for attempting the dance in front of an audience, there is one YouTube user who finds the demonstration offensive.

    Chris Paul fought back tears taking the court for Game 5
    By Matt Moore | NBA writer
    April 30, 2014 12:00 pm ET

    Tuesday’s night’s Game 5 between the Clippers and Warriors was obviously an emotional affair, but especially so for Chris Paul. As head of the NBPA, Paul has been at the forefront of the fallout from Donald Sterling’s comments. He has a son who no doubt asked his father about what everyone on TV is talking about, and the Clippers nearly boycotted Game 4 and would have boycotted Game 5 if Adam Silver hadn’t dropped the hammer with a lifetime ban and a $2.5 million fine.

    But with Drake’s song, “Trophies,” blaring in the background, the weary Clippers ran out to a roaring standing ovation from a packed house that nearly brought Paul to tears.

    “I’m an emotional person,” Paul said. “So running out for warm-ups, it took everything not to break down. That is something I will never forget forever.”

    Pa. judge won’t reconsider voter ID ruling
    By Amy Worden, Inquirer Harrisburg Bureau

    A Commonwealth Court judge on Monday denied the Corbett administration’s request to reconsider his ruling overturning the state’s two-year-old voter identification law.

    In a 29-page decision, Judge Bernard L. McGinley said the law requiring Pennsylvania voters to produce photo ID at the polls failed “to provide liberal access to compliant photo ID” and, as a result, disenfranchised voters.

    “The evidence showed the voter ID provisions at issue deprive numerous electors of their fundamental right to vote, so vital to our democracy,” wrote McGinley, who struck down the law in January.

    Throughout the exchange, Karl continually pressed Carney to admit that the talking points developed by the intelligence committee (which were the subject of the emails that Karl faked) were actually formulated by the White House for political purposes, and at one point, toward the end, tried to get Carney to “correct the record” on how many words the White House suggested be changed.

    “Jon, when it comes to correcting the record,” Carney said, pausing to shoot Karl a look, “we could get into that,” (a pretty clear reference to Karl’s Benghazi “emails”), then added “The fact is, those talking points were, as the Deputy Director of the CIA testified before Congress, as he has talked to the press about, on Benghazi, were created by the CIA.”

    —– -By now, everyone has made some kind of statement of comment about soon-to-be former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s lifetime suspension from the NBA.Generally, people within the league and around the country feel that NBA Commissioner Adam Silver made the right and just decision to ban Sterling from the sport due to his racist comments. Of course, we’ve had some conservatives who now feel that Sterling was setup by his former mistress and Magic Johnson to pave the way for Magic to buy the Clippers.

    While the Sterling ‘trutherism’ is pretty far out there, former Republican Congressman and now right-wing pundit Allen West decided to go even further down the rabbit hole on Wednesday. On his personal website, West wrote a blog post where he somehow found a way to shoehorn Benghazi and hatred for Obama into a discussion about Donald Sterling’s racism. West said that we know more about Sterling’s racism than we know about what happened in Benghazi or with the IRS. He also wanted to know why there wasn’t more outrage over Kerry’s apartheid comments.

    I need to buy some living room furniture. I’m not to big on seating, so a nice size sofa and maybe an accent chair or 2 a tv stand or something for my 51inch tv. I also an 2nd bedroom set, and a dining room set.

    But…I’d like to NOT spend much money doing so…lol.

    Yeah, I’m being cheap.

    Any ideas, help a sista out.

    • Ellie Hass

      Ikea, Restoration Hardware outlet, Macy’s furniture outlet or Crate and barrel outlet if there are any near you. They offer deep markdowns on good furniture.

      • Aquagranny911

        I love Ikea! We have to go a long way to get there but they are easily off the highway when we go to visit familia. I’ve never bought furniture but love all their little accessories. The few times I have been there I have always bought some little something, usually kitchen gadgets.

        • Ellie Hass

          Ikea has shaken off their image of catering to college students. Their furniture is solid these days, and if you like modern/contemporary, it’s the place to go for affordable pieces, instead of breaking bank for similar stuff at DWR.

    • jds09

      You can find some very gently used stuff on Craigslist.

    • Aquagranny911

      Thrift store…the high end ones…Ricos change furniture like they change clothes. You can often get really excellent stuff at bargain prices especially around the end of the month when the store wants to reduce inventory. A lot of those places will even deliver for a small fee. Buy your beds regular retail, watch for sales.

      • rikyrah

        I don’t know about furniture, but my sister swears by the thrift stores in the ‘better’ neighborhoods. People poo poo her about the gas she spends, but my sister did her research, and knows when all the sale days are and she always comes back with good stuff that she didn’t spend anything for.

        so, if they’re that way with clothes, I’d tend to agree with AG about furniture

        • Aquagranny911

          Oh yeah! Sis & I both have some designer labels in our closets at bargain prices from places like that, some came with the original price tags still on.

          I have a great couch & love seat that I got from one of those stores for one quarter I would have had to pay from a regular furniture store. They came from some rico’s vacay house up in the mountains & were hardly sat on, lol. Ricos buy expensive but they get bored easily & they dump!

  • Aquagranny911

    Is anybody besides me starting to get really irritated with Israel & their supporters here? It really pissed me off when they got all over Sec Kerry for saying that Israel was in danger of becoming an “apartheid nation” if they did not come to a reasonable agreement with the Palistinians. Apartheid is the Afrikaans word for “segregation.” Isn’t that exactly what Israel is doing to any peoples they don’t want in their country & that they don’t want to share?

    I know very little about the Middle East but it seems to me that if everyone & his misbegotten half brother can use “slavery of African Americans” as an analogy for having to tie his own shoes then Sec Kerry should be able to call “apartheid” when he sees real segregation happening.

    I guess that what I am asking is why are some words like “holocaust” & “apartheid” so scared but “slavery” & “Jim Crow” can be used by any dipdong with a mouth & an anus to complain about something?

    Kerry was right! Even Bishop Tutu said so!

    My two pesos….rant over, for now…

      Hello POU. AG, I was a bit peeved with SOS Kerry walking that back. Apartheid means “apart”. He’d better toughen up and stand by his words. And this is exactly what Israel is doing, and they can just spare me the feigned gasps at a word which most, if not all of the RW supported under their god Rea-gun !

      • Aquagranny911

        I forgave Sec Kerry. In many ways he is a diplomat who must chew over every word before he spits it out. He spoke truth! He “walked back” because he supports our Prez & peace in the ME. That is his primary goal.

        The venue where he was speaking was not supposed to be “public” but WE KNOW that PBO’s critics would follow any of his people into a restroom to make sure they were peeing “right!”

They want a “war” because in their sad heads they are under some sort of oppression. These are white folks that need to be institutionalized.

    • Aquagranny911

      CC, I think by now that they are totally infiltrated by FBI, AFT and all the rest of that alphabet soup dudes. They have their names, locations etc if they didn’t already have them. They probably took selfies.

      PBO is not going to allow another Waco or Ruby Ridge. These nut buckets all want a “range war” a la the 1800′s west. PBO ain’t gonna give them that.

      If it gets to be a big enough problem for Nevada then local LEO’s will have to handle it or the Governor of Nevada could actually call out the National Guard for this.

      I don’t think that will happen. These guys are going to run out of food & I doubt Bundy wants them eating his cows. Also in a few weeks temps there will be will over 100+ & climbing. No fun camping in the desert in the summer.

      • crazycanuck

        Hope you are right AG

        • Aquagranny911

          Remember Seal Team 6 & Bin Laudin…just saying. PBO will let the locals handle it until they can’t & they cry real loud for mercy & federal help.

    - – –Paul Ryan Met With the Congressional Black Caucus—They Mostly Disagreed. – - – -
    – – - -The Congressional Black Caucus got the meeting it wanted with House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, who met with the bulk of the caucus Wednesday in the wake of his “inner city” poverty comments.

    CBC members had offered the invitation after voicing their offense to the comments Ryan made last month on Bill Bennett’s influential Morning in America radio show.He spoke of a “tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working, and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.” One member called it a “thinly-veiled racial attack.” Ryan later said he was “inarticulate” in making those comments.

    Ryan thanked the CBC for inviting him to its meeting and called it the beginning of an ongoing conversation about poverty. “We had an engaging and productive discussion,” he said in a statement following the meeting.
    - – - –SNIP – -

    “We had a very respectful and cordial conversation,” CBC Chairwoman Marcia Fudge said. But they agreed on almost nothing, policy-wise. Ryan’s latest budget, opposed by CBC members, trims the budget by more than $5 trillion in cuts, and includes steep cuts to programs like Medicaid and food stamps.

    “The only point of agreement that we really had is that we both believe we have unduly isolated the poor in this country and we need to find some policies that correct that situation,” Fudge said.

    - – -Today, as part of the third anniversary of Joining Forces, the First Lady and Dr. Biden announced that the Council on Foundations will lead the philanthropic community in establishing the Veterans Philanthropy Exchange, which will be an enduring forum for donors to communicate and share best practices about supporting the veteran and military communities.

    “We’ve got to show our veterans and military families that our
    country is there for them not just while they’re in uniform, but for the
    long haul,” said the First Lady.

    The First Lady announced that the philanthropic community is pledging more than $100 million over the next five years to support veterans and military families. These commitments will fund organizations that support service members, veterans, survivors, and their families. The First Lady also called upon more donors to join this effort in order to fully support all those nonprofits and community groups that do such wonderful work for the military and veteran communities every day.

    The announcement signaled the launch of the Philanthropy — Joining Forces Impact Pledge, a new commitment to bring support to service members, veterans, and military family causes over five years.
