The ironies. Liberal "gun-free" utopia of Sweden has no-go zones, grenade attacks, and car bombs. A self-described feminist government that's the rape capital of the world.

OH PLEASE
Differences in laws and statistical reporting, as well as the gender equality and feminism leading to unquestionably greater reporting rates by victims/detection by law enforcement are factors obviously invisible to reactionaries like you and your ilk. This kind of lack of critical thought and analysis is emblematic of the obstinate nature of the far right.
Rape culture is real.
Praise and admiration for Sweden extrapolated out to infer designation as a "utopia" is embarrassingly lacking in subtlety and respect.

There's a shock, Tamby doesn't understand the meaning of the words "subtlety" and "respect".

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reveals their analysis of TrumpCare:

14 million people will lose healthcare in 2018
52 million people would be uninsured in the year 2026

“Uh, no,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said flatly, asked whether he thinks Mexico will foot the bill in an interview with POLITICO Playbook’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer.

Turns out that Trump wasn't just spouting propaganda when he said that he disagreed with the CBO numbers. While the CBO predicted 24 million will lose insurance in 10 years, the analysis by the executive branch predicts 26 million.

That would add up to 8 million more uninsured people than there were in 2009, before the ACA was passed.

VINA DEL MAR, Chile — Here’s what happens when the U.S. pulls out of a major trade deal: New Zealand seizes the opportunity to send more of its milk and cheese to China. Japanese consumers pay less for Australian beef than for American meat. Canadians talk about sending everything from farm products to banking services to Japan and India.
President Donald Trump dumped the 12-nation TPP right after he took office, saying it was a “horrible” deal and blaming it for sucking American jobs abroad. But now other countries are ready to rush into the vacuum the U.S. is leaving behind, negotiating tariff-cutting deals that could eliminate any competitive advantage for U.S. goods.
That phenomenon is on stark display this week in Chile, where more than a dozen Pacific Rim countries are meeting in a beachside hotel to talk about moving on in the post-TPP era. China, not one of the original signers of the TPP, is here looking to cut deals. So are Canada and Mexico. And while the U.S. would normally send a high-ranking trade official to this kind of gathering, the Trump administration, is just sending an envoy from the embassy in Santiago.
Competitors say they have no choice but to take the money U.S. businesses would have earned otherwise.
“We are not trying to take market share from the U.S. It’s more like you are putting money on the table and pushing it towards us,” said Carlo Dade, director of trade and investment policy for the Canada West Foundation, a Calgary-based think tank.
In the long run, U.S. companies could move jobs and factories abroad to take advantage of trade deals that make it cheaper to produce goods in other counties. And U.S. industries, particularly agriculture, could lose billions of dollars a year in export sales.
The White House said its message in Chile this week “will be to underscore the commitment of the Trump administration to engaging actively with all our Asia-Pacific partners and our intention to remain a key member of the Asia-Pacific community.” The Trump White House this week could feel out other countries' appetites for the bilateral trade deals it wants to pursue instead of multi-country pacts.
But that could backfire.
The meeting could instead bring other countries closer to the idea of pursuing an 11-nation deal excluding the U.S. And additional nations could sign on. In addition to China, representatives from South Korea and Colombia, also not TPP members, will be here.
If there is a new deal, U.S. companies eager to take advantage of the potential trading bloc could move operations to Canada, Mexico or other TPP countries, said Dade, who helped write a recent [Only registered users can see links.] showing that U.S. losses from TPP are everyone else’s gains.

China could also use the meeting this week to further sideline the TPP in favor of its own agreement, the 16-nation Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, and solidify its newly self-assumed role as the guardian of regional economic integration. But Beijing may have to find a way to to push its own deal while upholding some of the high-standards TPP rules other countries spent so long negotiating.
Meanwhile, U.S. agricultural exporters are already starting to see threats to their global market share.
America’s farm economy is suffering from dropping commodity prices and ballooning supply costs. The TPP represented a major opportunity for cattle ranchers, grain growers and wine producers to get more of their product to Asian markets hungry for well-marbled Texas beef or prized California chardonnay. The American Farm Bureau Federation estimated the deal would have boosted annual net farm income by $4.4 billion.
Dairy exporting powerhouse New Zealand by 2020 is already expecting to have entirely free trade on dairy products with a bloc of 10 Southeast Asian nations, creating an obstacle for U.S. producers to get into those markets.
"We're still paying 10 percent tariffs and their demand for dairy is really taking off," said Darci Vetter, who served as President Barack Obama's chief agricultural trade negotiator. "You want to have the best level of access at the time they start forming relationships with buyers and so the timing on this is critical and we're going to be way behind New Zealand."
New Zealand is also looking to revamp its deal with China and last week set up initial talks for a trade deal with the European Union. Canada, a major exporter of farm commodities and banking and insurance services, this month formally launched consultations on a trade deal with China and has ambitions of doing deals with Japan and India. Australia, a major beef exporter, is poised this year to further push a 10 percent tariff advantage over U.S. beef in Japan as it ramps up a free trade deal with Tokyo.
“This is a competitive game and of course we aren’t going to sit in a hole and do nothing on these non-TPP fronts because everybody is in this game and if you fall behind you are in a competitive disadvantage,” said Tim Groser, New Zealand’s ambassador to the U.S. and the country’s former trade minister.
But even as the political landscape may change across the Asia-Pacific, proponents of a high-standard regional trade deal hope this week will cement some of the trading rules that would have been in the TPP.
The Obama administration made a point of touting the TPP’s labor rules and mandatory environmental protections. The deal was also the first to tackle unfair competition from state-owned enterprises and rules governing digital trade and data flows.
Indeed, a primary goal of the TPP was to force countries with low standards to operate on a level similar to the U.S., which would create less of a competitive disadvantage for U.S. workers and companies.
New Zealand’s Groser, who helped shape the TPP from its infancy, said he didn’t expect this week to produce any dramatic decisions. Countries will still want to give the U.S. “a lot of political space here and a lot of time to reflect on its trade agenda,” he said.
Still, he added, every country will be looking to press its own advantage.
"At the end of the day we’re all economic nationalists," he said. "Our responsibility is to look after our own country’s economic interests."

Do we really count those 26 million with $12,000 deductibles as being insured? It's just another example of Liberals randomly barfing out numbers (Obama bragged about these numbers a lot), calling it 'fact', but the devil is always in the details.

Btw, Obama's job numbers were completely cooked. Obamacare forced many employers to fire FT employees and hire PT employees, so many of those fired FT employees went out and got 2 part time jobs, which gooses the employment numbers.

Then just yesterday I saw some of the "fact checkers" were saying it's a myth that the economy has transitioned from FT employment to PT employment citing BLS numbers that claimed the mix of FT/PT is pretty much unchanged. Turns out that if you work 2 20-hour PT jobs, you count as a FT employee in those numbers. More cooked numbers...thanks Obama for all your propaganda stats!

Yes, 'cause if you get hit by a bus, get brutally gang-raped by a refugee or have a major health issue, a 12k deductible is a drop in the bucket.

Hows that medical weed in Kentucky?

"Kentucky voters elected Matt Bevin as governor in 2015 after he expressed support for medical marijuana on the campaign trail. Bevin acknowledged “there is unequivocal medical evidence” that medical marijuana is beneficial, while his opponent was dismissive.

In 2016, legislators in both the House and Senate introduced medical marijuana legislation, but the bills did not receive serious consideration, and the legislature adjourned without taking action. Fortunately, Sen. Perry Clark (D-Louisville) has introduced SB 57, which would create a medical marijuana program, for consideration in the 2017 legislative session."

I can't imagine dealing with chemo treatments. I really can't imagine dealing with chemo treatments without the help of marijuana.

We know, unequivocally, that this is medicine that will help people. It's cheap to produce. Minimal side effects.

And these elected goons, who are completely aware of these facts, refuse to allow basic treatment for the poor, sick people who elected them. It's so much worse than just bad, inefficient government. It's completely inhumane.
