A Motion to Proceed

I'm in the middle of getting some health insurance right now - $1K per month with a $7k deductible = $17K per year which I'll never use because I'm healthy and have always have been healthy. I've probably payed $500K+ in health insurance over my lifetime and I've never used any of it. None of my children have used it and all of that money has gone somewhere else to someone else. It's been that way ever since I started paying for health insurance which I never would have started doing if it didn't cost so much money to go to hospital (which I've never done) and I didn't want to loose every dime I had to St. Elsewhere. To point out that the government has made a mess of our health care system is obvious but that's just the history we have with "our employer." Perhaps Trump can make it less of a mess.

Enter John McCain - "Let's return to regular order."


Maybe not. They worked on this thing for years to get the piece of crap we've been living with for 7 years (ObamaCare) and yes I mean they, both sides of the isle, put this thing together. Yes, just the Dems vote yea that fateful Christmas Eve night but the GOP was all on board and kept it alive year after year even after they took the House and then the Senate. Today the Senate voted by one tie breaking Pence to "Proceed With Health Care Debate" - are you kidding me? The debate goes on and on and on...

It's all a show. This health care law known as the Affordable Care Act has been a horrible piece of legislation for health and care but a great taxing vehicle hiding behind sanctimonious political preaching. These Republicans need to get it out of the Senate and to reconciliation with the House so they can pass something they call "repeal and replace" so that Tom Price from his HHS throne can start dismantling this monster. That is the horror keeping these Senators from voting for anything - the horror they created because when they wrote this "law" they never thought, in their wildest dreams, that someone like Tom Price could become the Secretary of Health and Human Services. They fear the power of the Administrative State that will not "administrate" the way they intend it to and they don't want to give that power to the executive branch.

Now it's going to happen. The GOP is going to figure out something to pass out of the Senate and then they'll hammer out a law with the House and Trump is going to sign it. Whatever he signs is going to keep the HHS Sec. with all his power intact and ObamaCare will get gutted like a Georgia pig.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
