I am happily retired after 35 years of Labor and Delivery nursing. My passions now are two wonderful grandchildren, quilting on my HQ 16, sewing, and going where life takes me with my husband of 28 years. I am primarily conservative with moderate views on a couple social issues.

    And the nurse was the Deputy SG under Obama, so maybe not so partisan after all. And she has a Ph.D, so we should be addressing her as Dr. anyway.

    why would we be surprised that insurance companies only want to pay for generic medications rather than newer, more expensive medications? Most of us are well aware that insurers have been using their equivalent to death panels to limit care for decades now. Some of our "conservative" legislators actually want to roll back regulations on how insurers must treat Americans because they are concerned for those poor companies that might not be obscenely profitable if they are required to pay for care rather than CEO compensation and bonus packages.
    What I meant by my post is that Viagra,or the generic equivalents, or other medications similar to it, are not covered.....and probably in far greater numbers than many people realize. Ditto on other remedies to ED.

    I think some might be surprised at how many insurance companies do not cover Viagra or other problems associated with ED.

    This person is prone to exaggeration. An accusation I've made many times.

    However, I will say that the unveiling of her portrait surely wasn't a diversion tactic on their part. The unveiling was routine. So really wasn't even worth mentioning at all. IMO

    Trump's diversion tactics include trying to put the focus on the Clintons, Obama and to convince people that the media is making up fake stories.

    An accusation that might be some of the time, but certainly not set in stone. I am not a twitter user, but reports, and quotes from those who are, show a definite brouhaha over this portrait.

    I don't think anyone (left,right,middle)really cares about Mrs. Trump's portrait. There are much more pressing things to worry about.

    Exactly. So why the brouhaha and why was it even mentioned here?

    No wonder the WH unveiled Melania's official portrait yesterday. Anything to deflect from the dirt swirling all around.
    Michelle Obama's first official portrait was released on 2-27-2009. Based on that, I would expect the next complaint from the left to be that Melania's is a month overdue.

    I don't necessarily agree with your appraisal. Actually people believe in the idea of controlling illegal immigration, dismantling regulations (especially when it comes to climate change), getting rid of Obamacare, controlling terrorism through restriction of travel and banning refugees, and made the choice for him based on their beliefs.

    As a gay man, I've had to vote many elections for someone that was homophobic, including Obama. But the alternatives weren't acceptable to me, so we toss out the good with the bad. This is what Trump voters did. I can't paint them with such a broad brush because we don't believe in the same agenda, although many of them are dumb as dirt.

    Love your post. And in the general population, are people who are "dumb as dirt". This includes Sanders and HRC supporters also, of course.

    This is so bonkers it is beyond belief. Why would anyone purposely limit yourself from the perspective of over 50% of the population? The insight, education, charm. How insecure do you have to be or Neanderthal? Where does these limitations stop? How different is this from the stone age religious beliefs espousing so many curtailments on others? I've been racking my brain to find another Western society with this level of imbecility from my travels abroad and I'm coming up empty. This has seriously scared me because if the orange one gets impeached, we have this dolt next.

    I see it as a complete and total respect for his marriage and the relationship he has with his wife. He is not limiting himself to the perspective of 50% of the population in any way.....he just chooses to not eat dinner with a woman other than his wife, unless she is also present.

    On the other hand, last night, Justin Trudeau took Ivanka Trump and Nikki Haley to see Come From Away (which is playing on Broadway). The musical highlights the generosity and kindness of Canadians during the grounding of overseas flights in Gander following 9/11.

    I am sure the point was lost Ms. Trump. I first heard about Come From Away while listening to the CBC show, Q, on my local public radio station. The music and story are infectious.

    Canadians, be proud of who you are.
    Why would you think Ivanka didn't "get it?" That is so insulting. The story of Canadians helping in this way is a great one, but it is by no means confined to them. I was witness to a similar kind of kindness that day also....right here in the US of A.

    And we will reduce unemployment by hiring more ICE agents, increasing the military, and hiring into jobs formally held by undocumented workers
    Sounds like a very good start.

    So you are fine with a foreign government having into a major political campaign, as long as votes weren't tampered with?

    Well, it was fine when the Dems in power tried to do the same thing in a number of other countries, including as far back as Ted Kennedy.

    A shadow government?
    Obama is leading it?

    Do you wonder why they won't answer your call or respond to conspiracy crap like this?
    Or maybe you feel like investigating that makes more sense than investigating the relationship between Russia, Putin, and Trump?
    Well, they never answer or if they do, it's a form letter that has nothing to do with the reason I called. So there's that. And yes, there is quite a bit of talk about a shadow government. You can choose to research it or not.

    I think I'll call Senators Cantwell and Murrey to demand they look into what appears to be a shadow goverment, led by Obama. They will not answer my call, or respond either.
