#Woke

Saw this gem on Facebook the other day:


The caption tries to use Moana as hateful man-bashing propaganda, but the comments section on the original post is full of people - both men and women - pointing out how asinine and fundamentally bigoted that anti-male take on the film is:


Seeing so many people fighting back against that type of prejudice makes my heart happy <3

If someone tells you that Medicare For All (i.e. single-payer health care ) is "too expensive", they are either ignorant, or selling you bullshit.


"Bernie's single-payer bill will cost us $32 trillion!!!!"

You'll hear that number a lot. What it doesn't tell you is that the alternative - our current health care system - would cost $49 trillion over the same 10-year period.

Or as The Washington Post's Paul Waldman put it in the linked article above, complaining about the cost is "the single dumbest response to single payer that you could possibly come up with".

"But how will Sanders PAY for single payer??"

(sung to the tune of Jingle Bells)

"OHHHH
Tax the rich
Tax the rich
Tax the fucking rich
Oh what fun
It is to tax
To tax those greedy pricks"

Sometimes the truth hurts....
