The temptation is, of course, to try to find the flames behind the massive smoke coming off of the Trump-Russian connections, relations and mis-steps in the court of public opinion (like we are doing right now); but remember, the Mueller machine is slowly grinding away. I think we are seeing more sausage than in a more normal investigation, for myriad reasons, but if Mueller can prove collusion, or worse, then non-disclosure of meetings like this are greasing the skids of public opinion for the next step after the investigation.

I'm having a tough time clinging to Hanlon's Razor when Trump as an unwitting/dimwitted Manchurian (Moscow?) Candidate continues to pick up steam in light of yet another irregularity as it pertains to Trump and Russia.
just like Clinton and Lynch they were talking golf and the grandkids.

Recent studies have found that many additives, particularly artificial sweeteners, are correlated with weight gain. Many sources; the crap in these foods makes you crave more of them much like the additives in cigarettes that weren't in those 40 years ago.

Eat 1800 calories per day of pizza, chips and soft drinks then switch to that same calorie count of fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats and you will see a difference. Not dramatic, but 3-5 pounds per year over time is significant. Not to mention the decreased chance you will grow into type 2 diabetes...

He told me 60-70% of the doctors in the Tampa area will not take a Medicare supplement offered on the Market Place Exchange because the rate they pay for an office visit is far less than their costs.

Yup just have to love a government plan. Now even more will be losing their doctor.
Ummm...it's not a government plan. It's commercial insurance and was selected by the consumer. They chose the cheapest one and got the worst coverage.

This from Healthcare.gov.

"Can I get a Marketplace plan in addition to Medicare?

No. It’s against the law for someone who knows that you have Medicare to sell or issue you a Marketplace policy. This is true even if you have only Medicare Part A or only Part B.
If you want coverage designed to supplement Medicare, you can find out more about Medigap policies.You can also learn about other Medicare options, like Medicare Advantage Plans.For prescription drug coverage, you can buy a Medicare Part D drug plan."

Seems your Dr is an idiot or you have a reading comprehension problem.

Ok, first, the pizza debate is different. That doesn't have to do with foods processed vs not processed. But the real difference would be in the number of times you would eat. You would need to eat a ton more times in the day, and that helps your metabolism.

As for the sweetners, you are right, there was correlation. But that research is simply correlation, not cause and effect. Many people using those sweetners are already overweight. There are a lot more studies that show the health benefits of these . Our problem is how much of the bad stuff we eat. If people had 1 slice of pizza it's not a big deal. When you have 4 with coke then a burger for dinner, much bigger.

The senate did it! They were able to come with an even worse plan than the house.

32 million would become uninsured under the Senate plan.

Kushner to testify in a closed setting with the Senate Intelligence committee on Monday. Trump Jr and Manafort to testify Wednesday to the Senate Judiciary committee in an open session. Not expecting any a-ha moments, but with Trump Jr not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, he's liable to spill something out that he shouldn't have said. And then being under oath, he will be subject to perjury charges. He can't just brush it off and say "that's everything". He's not testifying to Sean Hannity this time.
