Dead: Senate Health Care Bill

Don't repeal if you can't replace ...

The latest Republican effort to kill Obamacare died overnight. Two more GOP senators -- Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah -- said they won't support the current Senate bill. For those counting, those are "no" votes No. 3 and No. 4, and since the Republicans could only afford to lose two votes (they have just 52 votes in the Senate), this effort is officially dead. So what happens now? Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate will vote on a bill that would repeal Obamacare -- but wouldn't take effect for two years. That doesn't sit well with President Trump, who made getting rid of Obamacare one of the pillars of his campaign. He tweeted that Republicans should repeal the health law immediately and start over from scratch. Read More

Ellie and the 1950's Phone Booth

Phone booths are time travel devices and this one found me today.

They are used as vehicles to move between realities in The Matrix.

The new Dr. Who is a woman ... (Ellie closing the door and disappearing .... )

From mild mannered psychic El to Time Traveling Superwoman ...
I just missed Superman (Kal-El) but he left me a message in alien code... :: .. ::
"See ya later alligator" ... :: .. :: ... Is that a reptilian joke?

Remember when...

This 1958 Ford Fairlane was parked on the service road to the Belt Parkway.

The past just keeps appearing. Wednesday is High School Reunion #2 in Woodmere, Long Island at my friend Ellie's house.

It was always about the fins and the tail lights.

Those look like my cheerleader pom-poms on the back seat.

This old Chevy pick-up was parked next to me at Home Depot ... I must still be time traveling.
