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teeth gnashing, high pitched wailing and panty bunching going on from liberals about the possibility of Obamacare being repealed.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.
A story in the mostly useless Chicago Tribune about pay theft by the employer of some carnival workers:
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.”
“Call for vote on Garland”
“Protecting right to choose”
“Won’t support GOP Presidential candidate”
Kirk has given up any pretense of being a Conservative. Apparently he forgot who got him elected. It wasn’t squishy independents.
I almost fell out of my chair the first time I saw this ad. I was ready for this to be an SNL parody or primary ad by a challenger.
Sorry to tell you this soon to be former Illinois Senator Kirk, you have gone far out of your way to insult your former base and we will not be voting for you again.
It’s a shame that you pay lots of money to consultants that help you make these poor political decisions. Simple fact, you can’t out liberal a liberal. Liberals will always vote for the real liberal.
I recently saw a commercial on television for a remake of the movie “Roots.” This illustrates one of the greatest faults of Hollywood: Lack of originality and creativity. Literally, there must be a hundred thousand great stories that could be made into a movie, but they chose to do a remake.
But, that’s not the issue for today.
There’s at least a generation of people today that did not know there was a fiction book written in the 1970’s that was made into a highly acclaimed television mini-series in 1977. That fiction book was “Roots” by Alex Haley.
Now the really important part is the fact that most of the people that were alive during the “Roots” phenomena, don’t know today that:
1: The book was fiction
2: Alex Haley plagiarized a good portion of the research.
Sadly, many won’t care about that.
I won’t be watching the remake movie so I won’t know how well it will be told that the story is fiction.
But, that won’t matter to the BLM type groups. They will use this film as agi-prop to promote their class/race warfare agenda.
Black people are not excited about voting for an old white dude or an old white hag, so this movie will help get people agitated
Getting tired of the trump drones telling me that if I don’t vote for trump, it’s a vote for hillary and if she gets elected, it’s my fault (yeah, like I have that kind of power!!)
Getting tired of being told I have to choose the lesser of two evils.
Kind of like the choice between a shit sandwich or a shit sandwich with cheese.
I would like to apologize first and foremost to all Conservatives in America.
I would also like to apologize to most all other Americans except trump supporters or Democrat voters.
I am sorry because:
At first, I thought having trump in the Republican race was a good thing because he was free to be able to say things that we all wanted to hear and have as part of a national discussion (like closing the Mexican border). As hard as the Democrats and the MSM (redundancy noted) tried to shame trump into apologizing, he never backed down.
I never really took trump as a serious candidate. I never thought that he would quit or drop out, but I never thought that he would have the success that he currently is having.
He has become an embarrassment, boor, oaf, buffoon and quite frankly, a liberal Democrat candidate. Most of all, he’s become a serious threat to America in that if we do not elect a Conservative this year, we may well have lost America for good. (Yeah, every generation thinks that “this is the end”, but this really could be if we don’t stop and actually reverse the Marxist Obama onslaught that has been foisted upon us.)
I’m not at all sure what I could have done early on, but I am now completely embarrassed to have ever given any tacit support to trump.
Vote Cruz and save America.
