Geesh! A guy can’t even take a couple of weeks’ vacation without the country falling apart! As I leave, I’m hearing reports of Donald Trump Junior colluding with the Russians, but not really because it had nothing to do with the campaign, even though he thought at the time that it did, and on the way back I’m hearing the Republicans in congress are ready to finally pass “Better Health Care”, and then they’re not, and then it’s alive, and then it’s dead. What the hell people!?
OK, let’s first tackle the Donny Trump issue. First of all, every lawyer in the country that I’ve heard speak on this subject says that there wasn’t any crime committed. It wasn’t “collusion”, it wasn’t illegal, and it certainly wasn’t “treason” as Tim Kaine wants to point out…more on that in a minute. My question is, why in hell was Donald Trump Jr. even thinking about meeting with a Russian in the first place? I know it was to get dirt on Hillary (or at least that was the premise), but let’s get real here. You don’t pull crap like that and get away unscathed! Not when you’re the son of the candidate!
On to Tim Kaine. What kind of idiot is this guy? He says to a national press grouping that Donald Trump Jr. may have committed treason??? Is he even sane enough to be in congress? Thank God that Hillary didn’t win, because we’d have this snowflake to deal with as the number two guy in charge. I can’t even begin to think that he’s cogent enough to be elected as a US Senator from Virginia! That isn’t helping my view of Virginians by the way!
OK, on to “Better Health Care”. This is a cluster from the word go. First the GOP screams for seven years that they want to repeal Obamacare. Then they start adding the word “replace” to the mix because they realize that in order to repeal it, they need to have both houses, with 60 seats in the Senate, and the presidency. Then when it comes time to actually do something about it, people like Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski and Maine’s Susan Collins decide that even though they voted for repealing Obamacare in 2015, somehow THIS time around they can’t do it. Are you kidding me? Both of them should be facing some rather extreme primary fights when they are up for re-election. And where was the deal making? I thought our president was “The Art of the Deal”? What deals did he try and make? The answer is none. He sat back and said he’d be very disappointed if he didn’t get healthcare fixed. Well, tough bananas. Now you’ve got Bupkis.
I’m beginning to wonder whether the GOP didn’t want to repeal healthcare all along. I’m starting to think that it was some big lie to get majorities in the House and Senate, and to get the White House back. They’re really willing to eat this monstrous abortion of a healthcare plan we’ve been saddled with. And that is too bad…because the GOP is our only option to keep our country from going over the financial cliff. You know what comes next, right? I mean, the next step is for Obamacare to fail, and then for the Democrats to scream that we can’t let that many people die…the government needs to step in and go to a single payer healthcare system. Then we are in the same boat as our poor veterans trying to get medical attention and waiting two years to have a hangnail removed! God save us all!
I think I need to go back on vacation!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
