Out d'Coup | GOP Senate Health Bill 1.1; Battle for the Net; Police Tear Gas Anti-Fascists in VA; Harrisburg Police and Surveillance; #PABudget mess; PASSHE report; Teleportation; and, Mars Housing
Senator Turtle, aka Mitch McConnell, prepares to introduce GOP Healthcare Bill 1.1 today. Medicaid cuts remain. Dangles dollars in an attempt to pass the new version - exactly in the way we said he would. Joe Scarborough of Morning Joe leaves the Republican Party to media fanfare. But who really cares? FCC looks to end net neutrality. Over 100,000 websites, activists, and organizations stage an online protest in defense of a free and open internet. G20 protests say that another world is not only possible, it’s necessary. “Ninja Turtle” riot police tear gas anti-KKK protesters in Charlottesville, VA. 23 people were arrested. As it turns out, police made house calls ahead of the protest showing either that they really care or that our surveillance state has gotten WAY out of hand.
Harrisburg police inadvertently admit that they are sharing and consulting with state surveillance center - so-called “fusion centers.” Our little slice of Big Brother right here in the Keystone state. Gov. Wolf allows a hollow budget to go into effect. PA State lawmakers decide a revenue package is not really urgent. They try one sneak attack against Medicaid before they went off to enjoy their summer. Long-awaited consultant report on the future of PASSHE - Pennsylvania’s 14 public universities. What will this mean for the future of public higher education in the state? A second PA Senate review is due December 1.
In space news, beam me up, Scotty, except in Chinese. Chinese scientists successfully teleport photon to a satellite in orbit. NASA awards $200,000 for Mars housing. Huge advances in the use of recycled materials in construction. Imagine if we had the will to do it here. Fittingly, Pizza Boy releases Flying Laser Beams. Sean says, Rye Me a River. Gollum reads Trump. All that and more on today’s show.
