A Hate Campaign
Author: BobR    Date: 05/25/2016 14:49:33

The motto of Atlanta, GA is "the city too busy to hate". While that may not always play out in practice, at least they are making an effort to identify a problem and work towards changing it. America has never been a country too busy to hate, although we've made steps over the decades in the right general direction. Certain types of institutional bigotry have been tamped down (made illegal in some cases), although never eliminated.

One of the horrifying aspects of the T-Rump candidacy is how his blatant pandering to the xenophobes, homophobes, and assorted bigots has riled up and - in their minds - legitimized their poisoned point of view. We've seen it bubbling up at T-Rump rallies, with minorities being assaulted by rally attendees. It seems that in general life, the haters are feeling emboldened to let their freak flag fly.

Good Morning.

It's been a couple of weeks since I started this "Monday Night Writing" experiment. I certainly feel far less rushed trying to bash together something meaningful, and it certainly seems like I can devote a few more words than just a framework around the stories I've pulled. What say you all?

Something to Ponder
Author: velveeta jones    Date: 05/22/2016 16:26:07

It's an open blog today. But I want to lay to rest this issue that Mr. Trump is not a multi multi multi Billionaire. I just don't understand why people want to lie; perhaps his honesty is so off putting and refreshing in politics that the media and pundits are shocked and must attack him.

Does TriSec want President Trump?
Author: TriSec    Date: 05/21/2016 11:38:29

Well, no actually.

I'm a big enough student of history to see which way we're going with this. I'd like to think that the electorate is smart enough to see through the demagoguery and make the better selection for America's future, but I'm not convinced that will happen.

It's interesting to me, at least, to ponder what kind of a disaster awaits these United States under a Trump presidency. It's a parlor game at this point, but I wonder what a couple of key things might look like with Mr. Trump in the oval office?

I have no idea what is going on here but I feel the need to go where stuffed bears wander free.

Can we talk... again?
Author: Raine    Date: 05/19/2016 13:29:56

As many people know, I was a Martin O'Malley supporter. I could go on and on as to the reasons why but I am not in the mood to rehash what might have been.

He dropped out of the race before my state's primary. I weighed all of my options for how I was going to vote, and that included crossing the aisle to vote for Marco Rubio to try to prevent Trump from winning in Virginia.

The Ugliness Continues
Author: BobR    Date: 05/18/2016 13:04:11

With the 2016 campaign season still in Primary mode (at least for the Democrats), the stink factor is growing onerous and odorous the closer we get to June. None of the 3 remaining major candidates are clean, which would normally suppress voter turnout. That is unlikely to be the case this time around. Let's take a look at the mess, shall we?

Good Morning.

I've been in the healthcare industry since 1984; I was still in college when I got my first job in the business, doing old-fashioned data entry on a night shift after class.

I've seen many changes to the industry. I've been with companies that don't exist anymore, and worked to merge a few. I was present when the EDI industry was pretty much invented back in '96 by a little bill co-sponsored by the late Senator Kennedy met with approval by a far more functional Congress.

Remember back in 2008, when a young, energized senator from Illinois was running for the Office of the President of the United States?

Remember they called him too inexperienced and naive? Then they called him arrogant and uppity?
