The Case Is Far From Being Closed

Most sane Americans wonder what wonderful things Trump supporters are referring to when they applaud him and say “he’s the best President ever”, “he’s done such great things”, “he’s wonderful” and whatever other kind of bullshit they can blow up the narcissist’s ass.  Of course when you ask them what it is he’s done so great, most can’t even speak.  I have yet to actually get an answer from any SHITHOLE supporter about what he’s done so great.

So what I like to do when they feed SHITHOLE with accolades that just make his SHITHOLE ego even bigger, is put the shoe on the other foot.  Because they, along with SHITHOLE, are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites.

I wonder what they would be saying if it had been any other presidential candidate other than Trump who stood on a stage and told Russia to find his opponent’s 30,000 emails.  What if it had been Obama?  Or should we use someone from their own party such as Bush?  Or Reagan?  Would they have cheered George H. W. Bush on if he called on the Russians to do something against his opponent?  What if it had been any of those presidents who mocked people with disabilities?  Or stated how they liked to grab women by their pussies?  Would SHITHOLE supporters like those candidates just as much as they like SHITHOLE when he said it?  Would SHITHOLE supporters like any other president who caged people seeking asylum?  Would they like any other President who keeps threatening to take away their healthcare or fucked with their taxes so much that they ended up paying the IRS for the first time in their lives?  Would they have liked Obama if he called other Presidents, Senators or other members of Congress names?  Would they have liked any other president if they had called anyone names?

Would they have liked any other President if they had banned Muslims (or people of any other religion) from entering the country, only weeks after taking office?

Would they have liked any other president if they had shut down the government for over a month, causing 800,000 people to go without pay?  Would they have liked any other president if they carried on and on like a spoiled brat about wanting a fucking wall to make it more difficult for people with skin colors he doesn’t like to enter the United States?  I wonder how they would have liked Obama if Congress decided to hire a Special Counsel to investigate his criminal activity.  Oh that’s right.  Obama didn’t have any criminal activity which would cause the hire of a Special Counsel.

The point I’m trying to make is that SHITHOLE “supporters” really aren’t “supporting” anything but their own stupidity.  They are hypocrites in the hole so deep they can’t get out.  And they are stuck.  Because you, me and the lamppost know that if any of the atrocities that SHITHOLE has committed were done by any other President (especially the black one), we wouldn’t stop hearing about it.  And rightfully so.

That’s why SHITHOLE and his supporters will not stop hearing about Robert Muelller, Russian collusion, subpoenas, indictments, how much money SHITHOLE never had, how racist SHITHOLE is, how sexist SHITHOLE is, how much of a criminal SHITHOLE is, the list goes on and on.  McConnell and the rest of the crooked GOP can say “case closed” as much as they want but the case wouldn’t be closed if it were any other president, and with this “president”, the case is far from being closed.

A not exciting but still important post

This post is going to be about something that’s not very exciting, but it’s very important.  It’s something that most of us have, yet most don’t really think about.  Until we need it.  It’s called insurance.

There are countless different kinds of insurance you can have:  auto, home, renters, life, pet, insurance for priceless pieces of jewelry or art (sometimes covered under homeowner’s, but often offered individually), even individual insurance options for body parts.  You name it, you can probably get insurance for it.  With all the different kinds of insurance available out there for just about anything, why is it so many people balk at having health insurance?  Especially our not-so-wonderful “president” and his moronic posse called the GOP.

All but two states require you have auto insurance—New Hampshire and Virginia.  And although it’s not mandatory, you’re still responsible if you cause an accident.  And you’re stupid if you don’t have it.  Not only for yourself but for others.

For most people who have a mortgage on their home or rent an apartment, it’s usually a requirement to have some kind of homeowner’s or renter’s insurance.  It’s stupid if you don’t because insurance is there to protect you.  Even as a liability.  If someone visited your home, fell down your icy stairs and broke their leg or worse, was killed, that’s a liability on you.  If you’re not protected by insurance, good luck.

Life insurance is probably the most overlooked, yet valuable, even affordable, type of insurance.  No, it’s not meant for you directly, but for your family to use indirectly for you in your passing.  Would you expect your family to go into bankruptcy because they couldn’t afford to bury you?  Do you think everything can be paid for with a GoFundMe page?  Please.  That’s relying on others who may or may not come through for you.  Life insurance is a definite.  Just don’t default on your premiums.  Which you shouldn’t with any kind of insurance.  That would just be stupid.

And now, let’s discuss the dreaded health insurance.  Believe it or not, it is actually easier to get health insurance than it is to get life insurance.  With life insurance, you can be turned down because of a pre-existing condition.  But guess what?  With health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, health insurers can no longer charge you more or deny you or your child coverage because of a pre-existing health condition.  They cannot limit benefits for that condition either.  Once you have insurance, they can’t refuse to cover treatment for your pre-existing condition.

But our not-so-wonderful “president” and his moronic posse called the GOP want to change that.  First they just wanted to have it so insurers could deny you if you have a pre-existing condition.  Now they just want EVERYONE to NOT EVEN HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE!  ISN’T THAT WONDERFUL????  There are 30 million Americans who risk losing their health insurance benefits if these assholes get their way.  The lucky ones will be left with paying way more than they are now for much less coverage.

Before you say “but I don’t have a pre-existing condition”, ask yourself if you are human.  If you ARE human, which I assume anyone reading this would be, then, guess what?  You DO have a pre-existing condition.  You may not have arthritis now, but chances are you will.  You may not have any one of countless kinds of cancers, diseases, ailments, mystery illnesses, but there’s a very strong chance you will.  If you are female and are planning on having children, there’s a very good chance you’ll have a pre-existing condition called “pregnancy”.  If you have children, you should KNOW there’s going to be some kind of pre-existing condition/need for medical care somewhere along the line.  I could go on and on.

Before you say “but I don’t want to have to pay for health insurance”, ask yourself why not?  You pay for auto insurance, don’t you?  Possibly homeowners or renter’s? Maybe even pet insurance?  You don’t squawk at paying for any of that, do you?  And you’re probably paying a hell of a lot more for the pet insurance than you would be for health insurance.  If you’re not paying for any kind of insurance, you either need to stop ripping someone off or get a life.  Or both.

The fact that these assholes are even CONSIDERING doing this to Americans should tell EVERY AMERICAN exactly what these assholes think of you.  THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU.  They really don’t.  They didn’t two years ago when they tried to take our insurance away and they still don’t.  It’s sickening to know this is what they think of us.  Our own government dislikes its own citizens so much they want to kill them.  Because taking away health insurance for millions will exactly cause that to happen.

If The Tables Were Turned

What if the tables were turned?

What if the country of Mexico said they were sick of Americans visiting their resorts in Cancun, Acapulco and Tijuana?  What if they said they were sick of college kids driving down from San Diego for spring break?  What if they said they don’t want any Americans working in their country?  What if President Obrador declared he was building a wall to keep Americans out?  Although that wouldn’t prevent anyone from flying to Mexico or arriving by water.

What if the country of Canada said they were sick of Americans living in America and working in Canada?  What if they said they were sick of Americans immigrating to Canada?  What if they said they were sick of Americans visiting their country, spending their American dollars in such cheesy touristy places such as Niagara Falls?  What if Prime Minister Trudeau decided to build a wall to keep Americans out?  Although it wouldn’t prevent anyone from flying to Canada or arriving by water.

I wonder how Americans would feel if either of these scenarios happened.  I’d bet the majority of us would be angry at the fact that either or both of our bordering countries would want to keep us out of their countries.  By building a wall.  Even worse.  They would want Americans to pay for it.

A wall does nothing.  People can go under it.  They can go around it.  They can go over it.  It’s not that people coming to America bothers SHITHOLE.  It’s the color of the people’s skin that are coming to America is what bothers the racist motherfucker.  If people in the Mexican caravans were blonde and blue-eyed, he could give two fucks.  And shit, if they were Russian, he’d fucking adopt them.

Could you imagine what SHITHOLE would be doing right now if he had been “president” when 9/11 happened?  My God, he’d probably be planning to place a great dome over America so nobody could get in or out.  As if that would be feasible.  But that’s how delusional SHITHOLE is.  Hence, his “great” idea of a “wall”.

The thought of a wall has become a metaphor.  A figurative wall that SHITHOLE has built around himself for protection from America and all those who are investigating him.  And there are lots of investigations.  For very good reason.

I can guarantee SHITHOLE this much.  Between his wall shit and his SHIT DOWN shit, if he even makes it to 2020, (which I doubt he’ll even make it through 2019), I know of at least 800,000 people who won’t be voting for him.  Those 800,000 people know a lot of other people.  So do the math.  Having a SHIT DOWN a year before an election year was not a very wise thing to do.  Then again, SHITHOLE is not very wise.

You’ll Need Me Before I Need You

I’m sure in most of our working lives we’ve encountered that one particular co-worker who is the ultimate pain in the ass.

You know the one.  They tell constant annoying jokes.  Slurp their coffee to no end.  Complain about everything from the air temperature to how much work they have to do.

Then there is the one who doesn’t know how to do anything.  That’s my co-worker.

It amazes me how this woman has survived in this job for as long as she has.  It’s possible that she’s always relied on someone else to get her through.  I don’t know.  All I do know is that in the six years I’ve known her, I’ve had to show her everything from how to order office supplies to how to print mailing labels.  Simple, everyday tasks that any administrative assistant would know how to do.  This woman practically needs instructions on how to wipe her ass.

And when I’ve created job aids for her to follow in learning a new procedure about something, it’s pointless because she either doesn’t follow the job aid or loses it.  Then I’m stuck trying to train her all over again.  Did I mention she’s been in this position longer than I have?  Yeah, to know her you’d think just the opposite.  And she wonders why everyone comes to me for answers to problems.

One day I counted all the times she asked me questions.  She had asked me ten questions by ten o’clock.  And she doesn’t come in until nine.  That’s another issue I have with this woman.  She seems to think that the regular 7:30 to 4:00 work schedule doesn’t apply to her.  She rolls in around nine o’clock, usually after nine, and leaves at four.  Sometimes on Friday she’ll “sneak out” ten minutes early to get her hair done.  Yet the supervisor lets her get away with it and she gets paid for the entire shift.  Not very fair if you ask me.  And against company policy.  And she seems to think that because she’s been there for twenty-five years she can have any Friday off that she wants.  With only a day’s notice.  Then she bitches if I ask for a Friday off and she can’t have it.  I actually love when she has a day off because I feel like I can actually get some work done without being bombarded with questions.

All I know is that if I up and quit or died tomorrow she’d be up shit’s creek without a paddle.  And she’d deserve it.
