I’m unsure what your point is. Would it matter if I were a Republican? Would that make the idiocy of the Republican mindset on this any different? Or would my opinion hold more/less merit if I were Independent or Democrat (or any other party)? If you care to know my affiliation, just ask. In the meantime, I offer the following…
There are not many Republicans, even moderate ones, who will say what I have said - that FREE healthcare means NO mandate, that it means NO extra costs to the citizen upon seeking care, and that if it means raising taxes to cover EVERYONE then that is PERFECTLY FINE because it is expected and reasonable. Hell, at this point there aren’t many on ANY side of the aisle who would say the same thing.
The whole purpose of the mandate was to avoid raising taxes - and yet that is exactly the effective method the mandate achieves, which Chief Justice Roberts pointed out, by the way. But everyone’s forgotten that the origination of that mandate was from a Republican think-tank. There’s NOTHING wrong with raising taxes for good social programs like universal healthcare, education assistance, environmental conservation, social welfare, etc. - it’s the bad ones I have a problem with (like pointless wars, bridges to nowhere, corporate welfare, wars for oil, and incentivizing pro-life clinics at the expense of pro-choice ones).
Do I sound more or less like a Republican when I say things like THAT? I do wish people would worry less about whether a person’s RATIONAL point is coming from a conservative or liberal view and focused more on the fact that it was objectively rational.
Less “us vs. them” and more “we’re in this together so let’s just do the right things” and maybe there wouldn’t be botched implementations of what never should have been treated with such politicking in the first place.
That first ep of season two made be sit back, stunned. They came bolting out of the gate with it. But, boy, it really gears up season 2, and look out for season 3. Man. They do an excellent job up to 4. Five is…not bad, but not as tight.
Yeah I am digging S2. Much love for how they did Diaz’s backstory. Also…PeckStein broshipping hardcore and dislike idea of them being more
Sometimes I just get really sad about Bering and Wells.
Still haven’t watched the last 2 episodes means never having to be sad about B&W. Legit.
So Rookie Blue was a bit rough for the first half of S1…but looks like it found its legs with the first ep of S2. Holy shit.
Dunno how big of an outcast it might make me in that fandom, but I think my fav char is Diaz.

Female BAMFs Throughout History
Someone needs to go back and add the names of these amazing women. Remind me to do it if no one else has.
Have a shit ton of things on my mind so spent some time in my Oblivion game while trying to solve some major life issues. Eventually found myself becoming impatient waiting on a vendor NPC to show up so I could sell a bunch of stuff - so impatient that when she finally arrived I just shot her in the face with an arrow and didn’t give a fuck that she died or that all the other NPCs started screaming for the guards.
I fully expected the to be hauled off to jail, but that didn’t happen. I’d forgotten how much time I spent persuading everyone in that building to like me so I could get better vendor prices - and it resulted in them whomping all over the guards for attacking me.
That’s when I began plotting.
I ran over to the mages guild to do the same thing - only this time I shot the guildhall leader during an active quest for her (the active quest marked her “essential” so she can’t die). When the guards arrived I yielded to the guildhall leader, and watched her attack the guards. But then I got to witness the most impressive display of battle-magic this side of an Oblivion gate as every mage in the entire building swarmed to defend her when the guards fought back.
I did this repeatedly for just under an hour until I no longer felt frustrated with life in general. There is no therapy in the world as satisfying as this.
