Re: “Views: Why the RNC is Supporting Roy Moore

After listening to Democracy Now this morning and the reporting on Roy Moore and his desire to revoke all the constitutional amendments after the first ten (which would take away a woman's right to vote and bring back slavery), his VERY anti-gay ignorant comments, and his absolute prejudice against any religion other than his Christian God, I don't think the GOP should be allowed in politics anymore. Even if you don't believe the children who claim he sexually assaulted them, you can't support a candidate who opposes the very fundamentals of the Constitution. By funding his campaign and endorsing this disgusting excuse for a human being, they have forfeited their right to any moral high ground for eternity and should be reclassified as a terrorist organization. You have no shame.

Re: “Boosters Connect on Hail Mary, Save HSU Football

Not one local media source reported this troubling story in context:

HSU athletic director "Daniel Collen" and his immediate retirement.

Doesn't it occur to anyone that repeatedly reporting HSU scandals as isolated incidents guarantees their recurrence?

Re: “Views: Why the RNC is Supporting Roy Moore

Thats it? No choice? The purpose of a political party is to be in the majority?

Pretty weak thinking there. I thought the purpose of a political party was to facilitate the election of representatives with the same aims and ideals of a voters who belong to a particular party. Sounds like the aims and ideals of the Republican Party is power and nothing more. Aims?! Ideals?! Those be damned. Just let me be in charge!

Re: “Views: Why the RNC is Supporting Roy Moore

Do you even hear yourself? Aside from the documented pedophilia, Moore recently said that the last time America was Great was when we had slaves.

Mr Schutt, I can't make you feel shame if you have none.

Re: “Views: Why the RNC is Supporting Roy Moore

"Just another example of President Trump Making America Great Again by exposing all of the illicit sexual harassment going on within the Democratic Party and Hollywood."

Good lord. The very BEST thing that you can say about Mr. Schutt is that he's lying when he writes this. That he has so little regard for the readers of the Journal, he thinks he can get away with this obvious fantasy. The alternative is that he's so entirely deluded, he actually believes this to be true. If you're a Humboldt County Republican, please ask yourself if Mr. Schutt is the right person to be the local head of your party.

I had no idea there were these sort of people in our local political base.

Mr. Schmitt, Jr: history will look aghast at you and your kind with what youve allowed happen to our great Republic.

Re: “UPDATE: Police Chief Says Missing HSU Student Apparently Died from Fall

Most who follow this story are unaware there is a long list of similar college student disappearance deaths. They rarely have previous symptoms of depression or other psychiatric distress. -- Schools do not warn students about why the office cubicle was created in 1964 when a conflict in the physiology of human sight everyone has was discovered to cause still-believed-harmless panicked episodes of confusion. -- Students can create the "mental break causing design mistake" if they study or use a computer where there is repeating detectable movement nearby in peripheral vision __ That threat-movement in peripheral vision while deeply mentally invested, concentrating, will cause undetectable, failed attempts to visually startle, defined in first-semester psychology as a visual subliminal distraction. The stimulation of the amygdala which creates the surprise of 'movement nearby requiring emergency attention' will begin to color thought and reason. If the usually harmless nonsense hallucinations are of an unsolvable, unbearable outcome for a real or delusional situation a suicide can happen before the episode would spontaneously remit once Subliminal Distraction stops. Students can create longer exposure than in a supervised office. Although there is a multi-billion dollar industry to sell cubicles and Systems Furniture for open-plan prevent the "office worker" mental event, the public, mental health services and research are unaware such a problem does or could exist. There have been several recent cases in the United States and around the world. "Subliminal

The statue should be moved. To McKinleyville. Specifically at the exit gate of the airport parking lot, graciously accepting toll with his right hand.

Re: “A Men's Guide to Surviving a Sexual Harassment Witch Hunt

Inge Berge,
We dont allow personal attacks in our comments section so I've taken yours down. However, the fact that you read this thoughtful critique of the culture that exists around sexual harassment and could only respond by launching a vile, sexist insult at the intelligent, talented writer who authored it says volumes about the need for this type of writing and the courage necessary for women to publish it. In that vein, thanks for contributing. But in the future, please keep your sophomoric, chauvinist insults to yourself. They have no place here.

Re: “UPDATE: Police Chief Says Missing HSU Student Apparently Died from Fall

People reported seeing a girl with a knee scooter walking by herself north on highway 101. She was at the end of her healing process with her ankle so her mobility was probably close to fine.

Re: “Healthcare for All

Feedback from an expert:
On Dec 7, 2017, at 2:44 PM, Kip wrote:

You should tell the reader to look at two documents: The q and a document on SB 562 prepared by Healthy California; and the Lewin Group's analysis of the first "single payer" bill introduced in CA in 2003.

The q and a document on 562 is here . At page 6 you read this question: "Is there a role for Kaiser Permanente and other integrated health systems?" The answer given is: "Yes. Healthy California members can choose to enroll with ... HMOs, including Kaiser Permanente."

The Lewin document is here . It reviews SB 921, the predecessor to 562 introduced by Senator Shiela Kuehl in 2003. 562 is different in some ways from 921, but not in the basic multi-HMO structure that Californians will live under if 562 is enacted. 921 used the same circular, flabby definition of "integrated delivery system" 562 uses, namely:
"Integrated health care delivery system" means a provider organization that meets all of the following criteria:

(1) Is fully integrated operationally and clinically to provide a broad range of health-care services, including preventative care, prenatal and well-baby care, immunizations, screening diagnostics, emergency services, hospital and medical services, surgical services, and ancillary services.

(2) Is compensated using capitation or facility budgets, except for copayments, for the provision of health care services.

Here is how Lewin describes the "single payer" system under 921 in their 2005 report, The Health Care For All Californians Act....
People would have the choice of selecting their own primary provider or being covered through an HMO or other integrated delivery system that would be paid a risk adjusted amount to cover all costs for enrollees. [p 2]

HMO Coverage Option

Beneficiaries would have the option of selecting their own primary provider or enrolling in integrated delivery system models such as Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO). The following would apply:

People are generally assumed to be required to remain in the plan for a year. However, there is a three month trial period in which patients may disenroll for any reason. They may also disenroll at any time if the health plan can not provide needed care. In addition, patients may appeal to the Consumer Advocate (created under the program) for early disenrollment, that would be provided if deemed warranted; and Payments to the plan would be risk-adjusted and calibrated so that enrollment in HMOs is budget neutral to the Act. For example, if the HMO for some reason enrolls a disproportionate share of older people, the amount of money needed to provide the services they require would on average be substantially greater than the cost of care for those who do not join the HMO (who are disproportionately younger). Thus, in this example, we would assume that the payments to the HMO are adjusted to reflect the higher cost of caring for those who enroll in the HMO. Payment adjustments of this type are to avoid either under-funding or over-funding care for HMOs.... [pages 6-7]
It doesn't get much more obvious than this.

I don't agree with everything Lewin says about real and bogus single-payer bills, including what it said about 921. But their characterization of "IDS" as just another word for "HMO" is accurate.

Re: “UPDATE: Police Chief Says Missing HSU Student Apparently Died from Fall

Try Uber? perhaps she took some form of taxi ride there one way. If it was a suicide, its sad that people arent able to reach out. Perhaps the pressure of school and falling behind in grades, on top of the physical ailment couldve been overwhelming to handle. My heart goes out to the family and all who knew her.
