Paulie P and the Nation of 12 Year Olds

Listen to the press whinging on and on about Paulie P.  Almost every month since this administration took office, and then weekly more recently, the American media have consistently struck new lows in politics and journalism.

The mainstream media is clearly the obedient lapdog of the political Left.  Nothing new there.  But the complete lack of journalistic curiosity mixed with vindictiveness gets more strident as the Democrat Party staggers toward defeat in November.  The liberal talking heads will say ANYTHING in an attempt to salvage a few candidates from the flames.

Now, I will preface with a statement.  It will be true and sincere.  But it will be treated as if I never said it.  I do hope Paul Pelosi was not permanently injured by his assailant.  I hope he has a full recovery and his assailant rots in prison. Even people who oppose his wife politically say he is a very nice man.  So it is easy to assume he is.

That said…

In an ugly and obvious attempt to exploit this attack on a nice man, the Left and their lapdogs have come out fuming and snarling about complete nonsense.  The most nonsensical would be connecting  this to January 6th.  PLEASE!

So the nudist, drug addled, nut bag who lives on a dilapidated bus, with BLM and rainbow flags, and talks to angels and thought he was Jesus Christ for a year is the long-awaited, racist right wing explosion the Democrats have been warning us about as the upshot of January 6th?  Really?  Does the press think we are really that stupid?  They must think so, because they keep connecting a Mini-riot in DC with this guy in San Francisco.  Pathetic.

And they’ve personalized it as well.  I will single out Eric Swalwell, Phang Phang’s pathetic boyfriend, for specific treatment here, because he is the one who has lied most egregiously about the whole affair.

There are loads of other items as well; sports, decor, Christmas ornaments, accessories.

 


Over the weekend, this ass hat blasted the GOP, specifically the leadership, for not condemning the attack.  This was a lie.  It is a documented lie.  He deserves nothing but scorn from both sides and should have been called out by the MSM for the lie and the insult.

But oh, the media can’t.  Lapdogs, remember?  They pumped up the statement, gave it huge play.

Here are the facts:  Mitch McConnell, upon learning of the incident immediately issued a statement condemning the attack and said what everyone else said, that he is hoping Paulie P recovers quickly. Prayers for the family and all that.  So did a lot of other leading Republicans.

So once again, Swalwell demonstrated what a shallow dunce he clearly is and the media promoted his idiocy.  McConnell’s statements, along with half the GOP, were already on record.

He’s not alone.

The media has accused anyone who ever criticized our shrill and self-serving Speaker of the House as causing, or being happy that, this attack occurred.  This isn’t true, of course.  There isn’t a national or local media outlet of either stripe who hasn’t come out and condemned the assault and wished Paulie well.   No matter, when you are a profession that behaves like a classroom full of 12 year olds, you say what makes you feel good.  You also say anything to hurt those who aren’t in your clique.  That’s how 12 year olds behave.

Besides, there is an election to be won.  Fuck the truth.  Just make up something about how this is part of 1/6!

Then there is the hypocrisy.

I’ll just provide one example.  A few years ago Rand Paul was assaulted in his own yard by a neighbor.  While the Senator was working on his yard, this scumbag went at him at a full gallop and ran him to the ground. Paul suffered six fractured ribs, three completely severed internally.  He would go on to get fluid in his lungs and recovery was very slow. He also lost a piece of his lung.

Now as anyone who has suffered broken, or even severely bruised ribs can tell you, this is a painful experience.  For weeks or months, just getting out of bed is a unique experience.  Rand Paul spit up blood for a year.

Now, what did the Left say about it? Well, MSNBC commentators laughed about it on the air, on the record.  One news babe called it her favorite story.  A columnist said she wished the neighbor would go back and do it again.  Exactly – 12 year olds.

But, the humdinger came from a relative of a politician who tweeted that Rand Paul’s attacker was right to do what he did.  This was Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Christine.  And why shouldn’t she think this way.  Her mother is the embodiment of the middle school mean girl.  Always has been.

So when the entire Right comes out in one voice and condemns the attack on Pelosi, the Left and their lapdogs condemn them for not doing so.  When an assault victim points out the retarded hypocrisy of the Left for their offensive, on the record remarks, HE now is getting blasted by the lapdogs!

When the intentional stupidity of the Left reaches each new low, language become more and more inadequate to address it.  One gropes for a term that might be critical enough of such behavior.  I can’t find the characterization,  Perhaps a better writer might.

I want to think the Left has hit a moral rock-bottom with this episode.  But I am sure they’ll keep digging.

But no matter.  They are losing an election.  They put an idiot in play in Pennsylvania and Stacy Abrams is calling a record turnout in Georgia voter suppression.  So they must keep exploiting the Paulie P thing.

Okay, Lefties, all together now: “IT’S JANUARY 6TH! IT’S JANUARY 6TH!   WHITE SUPREMACY! RUSSIA, RUSSIA RUSSIA!” Good.  That’s a wrap.  Keep repeating that stuff.

The GOP Guarantees Single-Payer Health Care!

Bend Over Sweet Cheeks!  Here It Comes Again!

I warned you.  I told you at least three times that the GOP was setting us up for permanent Obamcare or Single-Payer Health Care.  But you didn’t listen.  Why?  Because I am an unknown.  Or because I don’t drool when President Trump makes a speech.  Or because I don’t care if I or you lose a government give-away.  They are all just excuses to whistle past the graveyard. But no matter.

And so the reaming continues. There have been so many opportunities to truly kill the Beast and we have squandered them all. There are so many people who will see what this article is about and groan, “Oh. Politics.” They’ll smirk and click over to videos kitties playing with toilet paper or some jackass licking a toilet. And they will be entertained.

And that, friends and neighbors, is why the GOP is getting away with the preservation of Obamacare. I am not the only one sounding the claxon, trying to rally resistance to Obamacare and Obamacare lite. You have been warned so many times.

A Look at the Single-Payer Healthcare Scam

Let’s review. As the present Administration came to power, item number one on the agenda was to eliminate the government control of the health insurance industry.   Few remember, because of the endless mantra obediently touted by governing class, the idea was to repeal Obamacare. NOT “repeal and replace”. As soon as you say replace, as a Republican, you are full of shit.

But as soon as people like Paul Ryan (R- WI) added the word “replace”, everyone with two brain cells to rub together knew we were about to get played for chumps. No one listened. You therefor deserve what is about to happen to you.

A few members of Congress, like Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), stood their ground against this and would have been successful in their fight if YOU had been more engaged. If YOU had shared as many of these warnings as you did videos of teenagers lighting farts or riding tricycles off of garage roofs. LOL.

But you didn’t. You are going to watch as the GOP accelerates the disasters Obamacare was certain to cause, paving the way for a single-payer government healthcare system. You are going to watch as everyone but the extremely wealthy and the governing class ends up on low-quality, inefficient healthcare.

Let’s recall that Obamacare was never about improving healthcare in this country. It was about the government taking over the insurance industry as another means of control and extortion over citizens; YOU! It was an intentionally failed model that could not ever be funded enough to survive. The idea was for it to fail and for Dems to declare, “Well, we tried our best. But the system can’t be saved. Now we have to completely eliminate the greedy insurance industry and pay for everyone’s third world healthcare.”

Half the country would have been STUPIDLY grateful. The other would have been looking around, dazed, saying, “What the hell just happened?”

Well, that’s not the way it is working out. As I write this, you are being burned in so many ways it is difficult to list all the con games being played out. But I’ll try.

The Starting Line

Right out of the gate, alarm bells should have been going off the day Ryan and Trump gleefully rolled out the plan that Trump now calls “mean, mean, mean” (he read that on Twitter). From the outset, the starting proposal the GOP was hawking represented 75% of everything Obamacare is! There are no reforms! Let me repeat that. THERE ARE NO REFORMS!

The entire structure is left in place to be entirely reinstated with the next election, or if the GOP decides it needs more of money (baksheesh) from the insurance industry. And while they eliminate mandates, calling that progress, they are accelerating the crash of the whole system. It is Obamacare without the funding. So the inevitable crash is much closer now than before.

When that crash occurs, will politicians suddenly find a sense of honesty and responsibility and say, “Okay we tried government-run insurance and it didn’t work. It’s time to go back to letting the private sector do what it does best”?

Noooooo. The immediate cry from all Dems and the GOP “leaders” will be, “Well, we tried to let a few insurance companies and the government to dominate a sixth of the economy and it didn’t work. The only answer now is for the government to take over the whole healthcare system.”

The Medicaid Misdirection

First there is no reason to talk about Medicaid and health insurance in the same breath. Medicaid isn’t insurance. It is one of a long list of government goodies given to the needy and far more of the not-so-needy.

And while using Medicaid as a shill issue in this argument, the GOP is going to increase Medicaid spending at just a slightly lower rate than the Dems intended to. Right now, a family of four making $98,400 qualifies for free government healthcare under Medicaid. And the GOP will grow this number. So while we see the battle over Medicaid “cuts” unfold around the wider Obamacare argument, remember that there are no cuts. There are increases every year for as far as the eye can see.

The Medicaid argument is a shiny object sideshow.

Yet Another Bailout

Part of the GOP package is, incredibly, A BAILOUT! A GODDAMN BAILOUT! They are going to GIVE billions to the companies that colluded in the creation of this monstrosity and even though the fix was in for them (in most cases these companies are protected by the government from completion) they STILL lost money.

Do we tell them, “Sorry. We rigged the game entirely in your favor. But no matter how many illegal presidential fiats Obama came out with to help you further, you still lost money. You made a terrible deal. Your losses are your fault and the fault of the corrupt politicians in the previous congress and administration”?

No! The GOP is going to make them whole AND THEN continue to support them in this failed program. There is no provision in this bill to allow all insurance companies sell quality health insurance without artificial restrictions.   If you can remember back to the old days of 2016, this was one of the flagship benefits the GOP was saying would come out of their “reforms”. Even when people like Jordan and Paul and I point this out, the GOP simply refuses to even address it.

But of course you don’t remember that. If you know anything of politics it is that the Russians did something, somewhere and that it must have been bad. We don’t know what that is, but it must have been something. That’s about the extent of what the present “politically aware” citizen remembers.

In the last go-round, when Trump was working every day to chisel votes out of the Freedom Caucus to support the plann that is now “mean, mean, mean”, some said their would be a part 2 and 3 of the reforms. The executive branch would just declare more reforms. They didn’t say that open competition would be part of part 2 and 3. So you know as well as I do, it is not going to happen. AGAIN, you are getting it right up the ass while you pose for funny pictures on Snapchat.

Is anyone bothered by the fact that the original flim-flam was kept alive by such illegal activity?!

Tort Reform

Does a single person reading this remember tort reform? Another major plank of the Obamacare repeal was to include tort reform; an end to jackpot justice. That is among the things that make the end-user costs in the real healthcare industry so expensive. Tort reform never survived the Trump’s entry into the race. It was never mentioned after mid-year 2015. Why? BECA– USE IT WASN’T IN THE DONALD’S TWITTER FEED!!!!

 Another Red Herring: Pre-existing Conditions

This line of BS is two-fold. First, we have the people who earn at more than four times the level of poverty (remember: family of four $98,400/yr). That family could have comfortably afforded the pre-Obamacare premiums for health insurance. But many didn’t bother. When such folks suddenly find the mom or dad, or more tragically, one of the kids is seriously ill or injured, they start scrounging around for insurance or demanding “somebody” pay for the coverage. After all, how can they get coverage now? They have a pre-existing condition!

Obamacare validates such irresponsibility. It demands, without any effort on the part of recipients, that every nick, cut, sniffle and cancer by covered by the government. (Let’s not pretend that Aetna covering them is Aetna’s decision. They will cover because they are a corrupt arm of the government now.)

Then there is the same family who had coverage through their employer, also a happenstance of government involvement in health insurance in the 60s and 70’s. Employers were given tax incentives to insure employees with companies chosen as winners by the government. The insurance companies were required to cover more and more minor things. And so the Beast was born.

But now, the head of household loses his job. And he does have a sick spouse or kid. But since he is insured through his job, and the next employer has nothing but disincentive to insure him, there must be a mandate! And the Beast grows.

 The ONLY correct fix to our healthcare problem right now it to return the entire system, on a date certain, to the insurance industry. They know how to write real policies based on real risk. The cost of insurance would plummet. People could afford to pay for stitches and common colds and lice, etc. out of pocket. They would pay a reasonable premium to cover catastrophic illness and injury.

The ONLY correct fix deals with the recent expansion of Medicaid separately. But that must be dealt with. If you say that the expansion isn’t rife with corruption and waste, I’ll call you out as a liar.

It would be infinitely cheaper to cover pre-existing and high-risk patients by simple block grants to states or hospitals. The cost involved would be miniscule compared to running the Beast we have now. And it would not require 2700 pages of legislation and 30,000 pages of regulation to oversee. And people making 400% over the poverty line could easily afford REAL insurance.

And there you have it. 1658 words wasted. And that was just this post. Then you have my past posts. There are writers you never heard of saying the same things who also wasted their time. But never mind. You just go back to binge-watching zombie shows on Netflix. Or convince yourself that you can’t do anything to change things because you have to plan for your daughter’s prom or get the kids to little league.

Or you can use the cool, I’m-so-disassociated bullshit lines. You know the ones. “Oh, there all the same.” “Nothing will change.” “You can’t do anything about it.” Dude, you are so deep.

The only reason that is true is because the politicians have no fear of you. They have you so cowed and they are so certain that you won’t stand up; they just give the illusion of working for you. But this Obamacare debacle, along with every other bill passed in the last 30 years, proves that they NEVER work for you. And they know they can get away with it.

You can be dead certain of two things: The Beltway LOVES Trump. Anything they say about him, good or bad is window dressing. He is so easily played and used. And, the only thing the Dems love more than the present Obamacare-lite bill about to be passed is the single payer, government medical care that it will SOON lead to.

And it will happen because you thought electing a semi-articulate, showboat window licker was going to solve all your problems. Ryan was the problem and still is.

Chumps!

Will the Smelly Cheese Stand Alone?

It’s been an interesting day for political wonks.

For starters, we lost one of the few adults on the GOP side today. Rand Paul is a level-headed, honest man. He will not abandon a principal for tawdry gain. I have a lot of respect for the guy. Sadly, as I said here before, he never employed the concepts I espoused early in my magnificent political primer to find the ear and keep the attention of the voter. Sadder, those evoking the basics only found at the beginning of the book and don’t go beyond that, end up looking stupid.

Ah, well. Our loss is Kentucky’s continued good fortune.

Biff Tannen…ur, uh, sorry, make that Trump… is accusing the Cruz campaign of fraud for spreading rumors and using dubious flyers to win Iowa. This coming from the man who has adult males, living in their mom’s basements across the country, worried that Cruz is Canadian.

Howdy Dootie has left the race and is endorsing Rubio. Tonight FB and Twitter will be aflame with posts from the same pajama boys mentioned above saying that Santorum, Rubio and FOX News are plotting to take over the world. Break out the foil hats.

Today it was stated by the Senate Intelligence committee that the 22 emails withheld by the State Department contained methods, operations and sources and were highly classified. Their compromise endangers national security and people. Thanks, Mrs. BJ Bill! (There is a running history of the sleaze bags antics, dealing only with her illegal server, not her dozens of other sordid activities, here. And there is much more to come. Stay tuned!)

Everybody now wants a piece of Rubio. Okay. That’s fair. It’s politics, right? And there is plenty to go after. He is a member of the Mitch McConnell wing of the Democratic Party. But it does demonstrate, once again, how childishly frightened these people are of Biff..er, that is…the Donald.

I have to send these candidates more books. The clearest point I can make on the subject is this: If you attack Trump, he will counter. His poll numbers may or may not rise as a result. But while you are pounding away at him and he is tweeting like a 12 year-old girl, your numbers will skyrocket. All you have to do is maintain the adult argument in a loud and insistent fashion and the sky’s the limit. And, of course, always include a comparison of yourself versus BJ Bill’s “wife” at every opportunity.

Those who think they will attack low-hanging fruit and then it will be just “me and Trump” are too clever by a half. So long as the rest of the field attacks the rest of the field, it will be just Trump standing in the end. It is time to show the country what a schmuck this guy really is.

And I’ll say it again, no one wants to see Trump become the real thing more than I do. I would love to see him suddenly start communicating like a man who KNOWS what the hell he is talking about. I would love to see him say ANYTHING of which retarded Twitter feeds were not the source.

But so far he is just an expensive suit under a stupid Flock of Seagulls hairstyle.
