Health Insurance Subsidies; will Trump-Cut Help?

Your first thoughts for understanding this issue is to know that since Obamacare Subsidies began, Insurance Companies have posted Record Profits?  How does one then make a connection that an already failing insurance market, one that didn’t exist before Obamacare was enacted, one that now insures (overall) less people than it did before Obamacare was enacted and one that has caused an average of 160 percent rise in premiums (some areas as high as 239 percent), one that relies more on Medicare/Medicaid coverage than any single other market-source, is somehow and suddenly capable of success if only the President were to leave the floodgate of Insurance Company Subsidies in place?

NFL and the Expanding Spectacle of Fashionability!

I believe we can all agree that Sport is a good thing for everyone; helps keep the body fit and the mind sharp. Professional sport, on the other hand, is an exhibition, a spectacle if you will and I sincerely doubt folks attend these events with the expectation of being bludgeoned by the improprieties of Athletes.
