ANOTHER GREAT REPUBLICAN HEALTH CARE DEBACLE

Both the Republican House and the Republican Congress came up with totally unacceptable replacements for ObamaCare and both bills got defeated.  After promising to stay here and work until they got a good bill passed, Congress ducked out of their solemn obligations and took a month-long recess anyway.  When they got back home, they got lambasted by constituents who want some action.  
Well, they're now back at it again with yet another dog and pony show.  A new bill picking up support from Senators, the Cassidy-Graham plan, would:



  • ·        Take the money being wasted on ObamaCare and redistribute it to the states for THEM to waste on ObamaCare      
  • ·   Raise costs by 20% within a year and eliminate subsidies for consumers

  • ·   Leave an estimated 15 million uninsured by 2018, and 32 million uninsured by 2027

  • ·   Cut Medicaid deeply over the next few years

As dumb as they look, they must certainly know that this is not going to fly either.  It obviously is a ploy to make Americans THINK Republicans in Congress tried to do something, but these devoted members of the establishment have no intention of ever allowing Donald Trump to win anything of significance on his agenda.   
  

Remember them come November of 2018.

FIRE MNUCHIN

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin requested a U.S. military aircraft to take him and his new wife on a honeymoon trip to Europe.  When confronted, the story was that he needed secure communications while on that trip.  Well, that certainly makes sense to me; what concerns me is that he didn't go on to say something like, "So I'm paying for the aircraft."  

Yeah, it appears to be a thinly-veiled excuse to get the government to pay for a honeymoon, doesn't it?   Well, after the request came to light and the stink started to percolate, they found some other way to give Mnuchin secure communications and he didn't need the military aircraft.  

This is exactly the bullshit that we Americans are sick and tired of, and why we elected Trump in the first place.  Here you have the Secretary of the Treasury, the guy in charge of all our federal dollars, out there using our federal dollars for his own personal gain.   Not only is it against the law, it's corrupt and unethical.  In short, he's a would-be thief. 

I actually like the guy and the job he seems to be doing and it pains me to say this:  Either Trump must fire the bum... or Trump must admit that he, himself, is part of the swamp that needs to be drained. 

Let's stop this flagrant abuse of the citizen peasants.

THESE UGLY AMERICANS MAKE ME SO SICK...

Dozens of abandoned dogs have been found in Florida, chained by their owners to trees. 

Surely, anyone knows that those poor dogs have been sentenced to death by drowning, with not even the slightest chance of escape from their certain fate.  

Why didn't their heartless owners at least have the  humanity in them to pull out their guns and shoot them?  

The next words that come to mind are: "Does anybody want to buy some fetus body parts?" 

Just how sick can we get?

CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS PROVE THEMSELVES TO BE IRRELEVANT

And Trump has made that abundantly clear.  

They'd better get their acts in gear or they're going to be on the outside looking in come November of 2018.  

The only way to make themselves relevant and to avoid a debacle that is most surely to come, is to start listening to and standing up for the American people.  

Otherwise, they'll have nobody to blame but themselves.

GO FIGURE

Right after returning from a very long vacation and leaving the budget, tax reform, healthcare, the debt ceiling and other things behind, Congress now has the unmitigated gall to say they probably won't have time to deal with everything that has to be dealt with this year.

DEAL WITH NORTH KOREA BEFORE IT'S TOO DAMNED LATE

North Korea has evidently conducted a test of a a hydrogen bomb; at least, they say so and our government seems to be accepting it.  

Just step back and take a look at what the North Korean midget has managed to accomplish in just the past few years: (1) test and start a stockpile of what is estimated to be 60 nukes; (2) test and start a stockpile of ICBMs; (3) launch at least two military satellites into space; (4) miniaturize at least one of those nukes so it can be placed on an ICBM and reach far into the United States; and (5) develop and test a hydrogen bomb.  

What's more ominous is that China appears to have been the source for many, if not all, of the materials necessary to put all of this together.  And, it's all come while China says it will get the runt to back off while they turn at least a blind eye to the progress being made.  It makes you wonder Kim Jong Un is a runt... or actually a grunt for the Chinese regime. 

And, who is dumb enough to think that the midget won't sell this technology to Iran, Syria or even ISIS?  After all, with all of this economic pressure we are putting on North Korea, they have every incentive to get money by any means necessary. 

I've said over and over again in my blogs that it'll be a cold day in hell before China stops supporting the North Korean despot.  The prima facie evidence for this is that trade between China and North Korea has actually gone up by leaps and bounds while the Chinese profess to be joining the international community in economic sanctions against their grunt.  

Consider this statement: With all of the pieces put in place, what is the midget going to do with all of this capability?  Is he going to sit on it, use it, sell it... or all of these?  

My guess is that Kim is figuring we won't dare strike; China has said they will not back North Korea unless we strike first.  So, the despotic kid figures he already has us looking down the wrong end of a barrel.  

We've simply got to stop playing along with this song-and-dance routine and stop the damned music before it's too late.  If we don't, we'll have nobody to blame but ourselves.

DESTINED TO FAIL

There's a five-year-old boy who decided to help people in Texas by opening a lemonade stand and donating the income to those in need.  Texans.  As of yesterday, he'd raised $400.  

Of course, you know that the liberals, the left-wing media and the holier-than-thou bureaucrats are not going to allow this good news to stand.  So, you have to ask: (1) Does he have a business license? (2) Does he have a health permit? (3) Does he have a sales tax number? (4) Is he withholding the required amount from his revenues to pay his taxes with? (5) Is he in compliance with child labor laws?  (6) Is the home where he's manufacturing the lemonade zoned accordingly?  (7) Is he a racist?

KATHY GRIFFIN GOES TOTALLY AROUND THE BEND

Kathy Griffin has retracted any and all apologies she made for publicly displaying a severed head representing Donald Trump.  As a matter of fact, she now blames you for it.  

Griffin abruptly canceled a years-long friendship with Anderson Cooper last week, because he came out against her outrageous stunt.  Now, she says the outrage is your fault.  

When doing an interview in Australia recently, she was asked if the stunt wasn't tasteless.  Griffin exploded: “You’re full of crap!  

“I am no longer sorry. The whole outrage was B.S.,” she insisted.  "The whole thing got so blown out of proportion.”  She then when on to whine about the unfairness of it all.  “I lost everybody. I had Chelsea Clinton tweeting against me. I had friends, like Debra Messing from ‘Will and Grace,’ tweeting against me.”  

This poor, sad excuse for a human being belongs in a mental ward... in Venezuela.
