Superfluous Buns!

There’s a hysterical scene in the Steve Martin film “Father of the Bride” where Steve Martin’s character, George Banks, goes to the supermarket to pick up hot dogs and hot dog buns for dinner.  He freaks out when he’s caught removing four of the buns from the package.  When he’s asked what he’s doing he declares that he’s not paying for something he doesn’t need/want.  He only wants eight hot dogs and eight hot dog buns.

He shouts, “George Banks is saying ‘no’!”

It makes sense.   Although I’m sure there are many of us who do purchase things we don’t need/want, simply because some things automatically come with the things we do need/want, wouldn’t it be nice if we could just pay for what we do need/want?

For example:  you’re in the market to purchase a car.  You don’t need anything fancy:   four wheels and a seat, air/heat, power windows, CD player.  You’re shown two identical cars, same year, same make and model.  But there’s a five-thousand dollar difference.  The less expensive one has everything you need/want in a car:  air/heat, power windows, CD player, great mileage, etc.  It even has extra cup holders and convenient fold-down storage.  The other car has all of that plus a sunroof, DVD player, heated seats, two years of Sirius and OnStar.  While those added amenities are nice, you know you don’t need them, nor would you even probably use them.  And that’s five-thousand more dollars than the original car you’ve been looking at.  The salesman pressures you.  After all, he’s putting in a pool and is relying on the commission from this sale for the down payment.

“Those are great features but I can’t afford the extras,” you tell the salesman.

“Wouldn’t that sunroof be great on hot days?  You won’t have to use the air conditioning, which will save you gas.”

“But it would really do a number on my hair.”

 

If we don’t want something or need something, why the hell should we pay for it?  That’s what I’ve been asking myself regarding ASSHOLE’S wall.  I don’t want it so why the hell should I pay for it?  The Mexicans don’t want it either, so why the hell should THEY pay for it?  And who the hell actually NEEDS it? In fact, it seems that the main person who really needs/wants a fucking wall is ASSHOLE himself.  So maybe HE should pay for it.  He’s got the money.  And anyone who is stupid enough to want to help fund it can pitch in.

There’s no need to threaten the healthcare of Americans simply because ASSHOLE can’t get everyone in Congress on board with the building of a stupid wall.  The fucking wall isn’t going to change a damn thing anyway.  All it’s going to do is make it look like ASSHOLE has actually done something.  If he gets it built maybe he can hide under it when the bomb drops.

Meanwhile, like George Banks, I, along with the majority of Americans are saying “no”.

Killing The Human Race–One Prick At A Time

Apparently GOP Congressman John Shimkus feels that it’s not right that a man should have to pay for pre-natal care.

A few questions come to mind with this prick’s arrogance:

  1.  Were you not born?
  2. If you have a female counterpart who is on your health insurance and lo and behold you get her pregnant, why shouldn’t your health insurance cover the care of the human being you helped create?
  3. Women don’t have limp dicks.  Why should we have to pay for Viagra?
  4. Do you have any idea what it costs to have a baby?  My guess is you don’t.

It’s bad enough that so many involved in this “health insurance game” don’t understand the first thing about health insurance.  We don’t need assholes like this Neanderthal telling us they don’t want to pay for pre-natal care because they don’t use it.

What are they trying to do?  Kill the human race?

Being Human

The bullshit that has occurred in the past two days goes way beyond a matter of religion.

It goes way beyond the matter of “keeping America safe”, “making America great again”, or “making America safe again”.

What has occurred in the past two days is something that has disheartened myself and millions of others, not just in America but around the world.

Our fellow human beings have been hurt.  They have been humiliated, bullied, interrogated, detained for hours, sent back to war-torn places they were escaping from.  You name it.  Our fellow human beings have seen it all in the past forty-eight-plus hours.

Why has it come to this?  Because some ASSHOLE who calls himself “president” didn’t have the decency to think through what may happen to his fellow human beings if he just suddenly signed a document on Friday afternoon and called it a day.  He didn’t have the decency because he doesn’t give a shit about his fellow human beings.  He’s made it quite clear in the nine days he’s been “in office” that it’s all about himself.  And maybe his “administration”, whom he will probably toss under the bus eventually.

I would love ASSHOLE to use what little brains he has and put himself into the place of the human beings he hurt with his “ban”.  I would love him to experience the fear of being a woman arriving at JFK to visit her surgeon husband only to be told that she cannot enter the United States.  I wonder how he’d feel being the eighty-something-year-old gentleman in a wheelchair who was interrogated for hours.  Or if he had been someone waiting for a loved one to arrive, only to learn that they had been told to return to where they came from.  I would love for him to consider all of that.  But I know he never would because that’s not how sociopathic narcissists think.

As I always say, everything happens for a reason.  At this moment the “reason” is to bring fellow human beings together in solidarity against hate and discrimination.  There are more of us than there are of them.

Karma and We The People will catch up with ASSHOLE.  He may not know the Constitution, The Geneva Convention or the United States Refugee Act but that’s no excuse for violating them.  It is, however, great grounds for impeachment.

If He Doesn’t Like You, Boycott HIM!

We all know that journalists have a job to inform the public of things happening in the world.  That’s what they do.

From yesterday’s fiasco of a “press conference” in which ASSHOLE didn’t act much like a human being, I guess it would be safe to say that he doesn’t like journalists of any kind.  Especially when they ask him questions he doesn’t like.

Journalists have very important things to cover for the public domain.  They don’t need to be wasting their time on some lying whiny narcissistic ASSHOLE when there are way more important things to cover.  Like moss growing on trees.

So to journalists and general members of the press, even camera crews, here is what I propose:  BOYCOTT ASSHOLE.  Completely.  BOYCOTT his “inauguration”.  Nobody’s going to watch it anyway so why waste your time covering it?

BOYCOTT any press conferences he may have (which shouldn’t be many; he prefers to hide behind Twitter). BOYCOTT the State of the Union addresses he may have (still wondering if he knows he’s supposed to have these). For any event where you would normally interview ASSHOLE or photograph him, BOYCOTT it.  Better yet: IGNORE him COMPLETELY!  Narcissists HATE that!

Seriously.  All the news outlets should get together and do this.  Newspapers included.  BOYCOTT anything and everything that has to do with ASSHOLE, sit back and enjoy the laughs.

Repeal this!

Although the Affordable Care Act does not affect me as much as it may affect others, I still need to express how I feel about its possible repeal.

You know why most of Congress hates ACA?  Because they didn’t create it.  It bothers them (most of them are Republicans) that a Democrat came up with a way for everyone in his country to have health insurance and they didn’t.

To even consider doing away with part of or all of healthcare coverage for Americans is selfish.  Yet that is what Congress is on the verge of doing.  As I write this Jackass Ryan is holding a Town Hall meeting during which he has stated that they will repeal and replace Obamacare at the same time.  That’s what they all keep saying but yet, as with ASSHOLE, they never tell you how they plan on doing it.  Considering it took years to create Obamacare and get it up and running, to come up with something of an equal or greater quality could take a while.  And if they come up with some cracker jack two-bit healthcare offer?  Good luck in getting that passed.  That’s if they come up with anything at all.  Because like ASSHOLE, they have no plan.  Meanwhile who suffers?  We do.

One of my biggest fears is their doing away with the acceptance of people with pre-existing conditions.  I’m diabetic, my husband has Multiple Sclerosis and my daughter has Asperger’s.  Guess where we are if suddenly we lose our job(s) causing us to lose our insurance?  Not in a good place, that’s for certain.

And if ASSHOLE had his way, the entire ACA would be abolished with no intention of a replacement plan.  That’s because he doesn’t care about anyone but himself.  He talks a lot, says very little and what he says you can’t believe.  If there is anything that is “fake”, it’s him.  So if he tells  you he’s going to keep this part and that part of ACA, don’t count on it.  We all know how “trustworthy” ASSHOLE is.  He could care less if all Americans had health insurance.

So, if this does happen, if the entire ACA is done away with, here is what I’m going to suggest to everyone in America who will lose their health insurance:  when you need medical care of any kind, send your bills to ASSHOLE at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,Washington DC 20050.  ASSHOLE has enough money.  He’ll take care of ALL THE BILLS, since it was his great idea to take away your health insurance!  Make copies of the bills because if ASSHOLE refuses the bills you can send them to Jackass Ryan at Capital Hill.  Shit, if somebody has to pay your medical bills it may as well be the pricks with all the money who took your health insurance away.
