Roger’s note: some miscellaneous images.

 

My money’s on Mona.  The further away you are when looking at this, the more interesting it gets.

Sorry for the blurry image, but it is to remind us that almost every industrial nation has had universal health care, in some cases for half a century.  The U.S. to its shame lags behind; and while the fight is on against Trump’s killer amendment to Obamacare, let’s not forget that Obama, by adopting the Romney Republican plan, set back for decades the goal for single payer universal coverage.  What he did was to etch in stone the monopoly over health care to the voracious private health insurance industry.  He didn’t even put universal health on the table when developing the legislation, which is nothing more than an enormous gift to the private insurers.

Here I am at my spiritual political home, the campus of U.C. Berkeley.  I cut my radical teeth here, and I hope that they haven’t lost their bite.  This picture was taken last year in front of Sather Gate.  As an undergraduate on the Student Council, I established the Hyde Park Free Speech area, which served as an embryo for the Free Speech Movement two years hence.
