Trump and Golf

When we point out that Trump is playing a lot of golf (as we did on Sunday), the point isn’t that he should only be either sitting at a desk making presidential decisions or asleep. The point is that Trump himself, piggy-backing on the anti-Barack-Obama Republican rhetoric of the past eight years, repeatedly insisted that — unlike Obama — he wasn’t going to spend time playing golf if he was elected president.

Is Trump just tired of being president and wants to put his son in law, Jared Kushner, in charge? What do we need Trump as president for then, anyway? He can just go play golf and get admired at Mar-A-Lago. 

I guess we're just a banana republic now.

What does HB311 mean? Is it in response to the recent Exxon anti-slapp case? 

U.S. judge finds that Aetna deceived the public about its reasons for quitting Obamacare

Aetna claimed this summer that it was pulling out of all but four of the 15 states where it was providing Obamacare individual insurance because of a business decision — it was simply losing too much money on the Obamacare exchanges.

Now a federal judge has ruled that that was a rank falsehood. In fact, says Judge John D. Bates, Aetna made its decision at least partially in response to a federal antitrust lawsuit blocking its proposed $34-billion merger with Humana. Aetna threatened federal officials with the pullout before the lawsuit was filed, and followed through on its threat once it was filed. Bates made the observations in the course of a ruling he issued Monday blocking the merger.

Aetna executives had moved heaven and earth to conceal their decision-making process from the court, in part by discussing the matter on the phone rather than in emails, and by shielding what did get put in writing with the cloak of attorney-client privilege, a practice Bates found came close to “malfeasance.”
