Obamacare: “Repeal/Replace”

There is currently a lot of teeth gnashing, high pitched wailing and panty bunching going on from liberals about the possibility of Obamacare being repealed. Personally, I highly doubt the GOPe will actually do it.

But most of the complaints from the above panty bunching wailers are that they claim the Republicans don’t have a plan to replace Obamacare.

To that, I say, “GREAT!!”

99% of American citizens neither want nor need Obamacare.  For the 1% that does, Medicare/Medicaid can be expanded to include them at a much lower cost and burden to the other 99%.

Any Republican that supports repealing Obamacare should use this food analogy:

Obamacare is a shit sandwich that was delivered to your dining table without being ordered.  Only a few desperate people would eat a shit sandwich.

You didn’t order the shit sandwich

You don’t want to eat the shit sandwich

Why would you send the shit sandwich back to the kitchen and have them send another shit sandwich out?

Time to order a new entrée off menu.

Sunday Afternoon In The Park

I spent Sunday afternoon at the gun range, also known as “my brother’s backyard.”

My brother lives out in the country and one advantage is that your neighbors can have some distance.

In a couple of days when the rest of the beans are harvested, he is going to dump a few logs 200 yards out so we shoot the .223.

I started shooting before my brother set up.

This would be my first 120 rounds:

targets

 

Good, but not great.

That’s why it’s called practice.

I do believe though had this been an actual shooting situation, I would be alive or cooking whatever I shot for dinner.

And after all the practice, we get to have the real fun.  Old style shoot out:

Next time we are going to cheat and shoot from the 2o’ line

 

 

 

Shortage of Carny Workers in America??

A story in the mostly useless Chicago Tribune about pay theft by the employer of some carnival workers:

http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-carnival-workers-wage-theft-0810-biz-20160809-story.html

The part of the story that I was interested in was this:

Two of the plaintiffs are South Africans who were brought in by All Star Amusement on temporary work visas called H-2Bs, meant for hospitality and other nonagricultural seasonal jobs. Like with other temporary work visas, including the high-skill H-1Bs and agricultural H-2As, employers wishing to bring in H-2B workers are supposed to establish that there are not enough U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified and available to do the temporary work and that their wages won’t adversely affect the wages and conditions of U.S. workers.

 

Seriously?? We have to import carnys??

If you don’t think we have a problem with Federal immigration laws……………………..

 

Oh, and off topic, Gary Busey made a good movie called “Carny.”
