It’s been a few weeks since I penned a column, and lots of things happened since then. Here are some of the items I have been thinking about:
-Democrats and Affordable Care Act (ACA=Obamacare) proponents have been congratulating themselves for the failure of the U.S. House of Representatives to gut the program. Not so fast; the reason that the recall didn’t pass is that those miserable curmudgeons, known as the “Freedom Caucus” didn’t think that throwing 20 million people off health care went far enough. Hairball says he will be back on this issue, and I believe him. Do not count him out. Every time it looks like he is imploding, he manages to come right back. So, Beware!
-Some months ago I wrote a column asking Scotland not to leave the United Kingdom. That was before “Brexit'” or the vote by the U.K. to leave the European Union. Apparently, the British are no smarter than we are here in the USA. It is a stupid move to leave the EU. And now, I am suggesting to Scotland that they revisit that referendum and this time vote to break from the U.K.
-It is uncanny how a few selfish bastards, like Scott Pruitt, Hairball, and their cronies can just simply go and disregard the evidence of global climate change that thousands of scientists and their data have shown to be happening. Going back to coal and other fossil fuels is a big mistake. I can’t actually believe that I’m saying this, but I congratulate the Chinese for having the vision to go ahead with renewable energy to replace coal, gas, and oil.
-Every time Hairball goes to his Florida golf club, we pay millions in costs. Yet, this administration is going to do away with “Meals-on-Wheels” as a cost-saving measure. Why are we allowing this to happen?
-The latest Gallup poll puts Hairball’s popularity at 36 %. I am wondering what the hell that 36 % is thinking. Do they have their head up their… I mean do they have their head in the sand?
-That “Russia thing” is not going to go away. They were a key reason that Hairball won and the truth will come out eventually.
