It is hard to qualify for Medicaid as an adult in Missouri. Childless adults aren't eligible for coverage through the state's program -- dubbed MO HealthNet -- at all, and parents can't make more than 21% of the federal poverty level: $5,400 in 2021 for a family of three. That was all set to change on July 1 because of a constitutional amendment voters approved last summer that made Missouri the 38th state to expand Medicaid coverage through the Affordable Care Act. read more

The GOP Response to Biden's Rescue Act Is a Massive Gift to Wealthy Heirs read more

Carlson, who is effectively the face of Fox and hosts the top show on the right-wing channel, ridiculed President Joe Biden Tuesday for saying that the US military had created uniforms to fit women properly, created maternity flight suits for those who are pregnant, and updated requirements for hairstyles.

"So we've got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits," Carlson snarked. "Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It's a mockery of the US military." read more

This is the documentary I watched.

Most of it was at the US McMurdo station which seems quite large. If you saw the clips of the cafeteria during dinner service you'd have thought it was at some normal US university during winter.

Fascinating documentary and the parts that I found amazing were when during the blackest part winter people would step outside (when the weather wasn't a gale) and see the stars and aurora. I can't even begin to imagine what that would look like. I'm sure it's also small compensation for the rest of the winter you're there LOL

One other thing that amazed me was during a particularly nasty storm they pulled people into the more robust buildings until it passed. When they went back to some of the dorms after the storm was over they were basically solid blocks of snow on the inside because the wind was so strong it pushed it into every available weak crack or spot that wasn't sealed completely.

You've never seen artwork that blew your mind? Or are you simply not a fan of abstract art?

The latter.


Saw this at an exhibit in the Houston Museum of Art. I'm 90% sure it was this one.

It was on the opposite wall of a gallery as you turned the corner from the hall. I stopped dead in my tracks because she looked so real while clearly a painting because of the background.

Same with wine reviews. And cigars. Pretty much everything.


Up to a point.

There are differences in wine, cigars ect in taste and quality.

But up to a point.

I rarely spend more than $12-15 for a bottle of wine. I haven't really found bottles more expensive than that to be worth the extra cost.

Funny you should mention it, though.


Another Netflix documentary unveiling a sham. Best part of this one is when at the end these two pompous tool bags are sharing this special wine that's supposedly the best of the best. A sommelier tasting it throws it away and immediately tells them it's fake.

Pompous tool bags wasted more than a grand on a fake bottle. It was hilarious.
