Gotta hand it to UK press; Johnson using Trump playbook & *literally being coached by Bannon* & you’re like “Yes. I like this.

Happy 70th birthday to the NHS! I moved to the UK 4 yrs ago after 4 decades using US health care. Was amazed at how easily I registered my family at our local GP. Quality care, free at point of use & £8 for prescriptions?

My oldest son was at daycare next door to Santa Monica College in June 2013 when a man shot & killed 5 people with an AR-15. 2 victims, Carlos & Marcelo Franco, father & daughter were killed a little less than 100’ from my son. Between the Francos & my son (& many other babies & toddlers) was a chain link fence & air. The Francos were shot in their car which then crashed through a short wall surrounding a parking lot.
