Let's be clear in that there were only losers in this race. No matter who won, the average American lost. If you are thrilled Trump won, I have a feeling that support may be short lived when he and worthless Republicans ruin us all. History suggests we are headed for a huge fall with a spin through fascism land. Don't forget, I am a noted expert in this field and see the same signs that happened before the rise of Hitler. Here's how it will begin possibly as soon as Friday.

The inauguration could be a fiasco of epic proportions. In today's day and age though, protesters seem to be pussies who can't be bothered. They certainly didn't show up in any way to support Bernie over she-bitch Hillary, and as a result, we now have King Trump. However, this does feel different and one cannot rule out agents provocateurs sent by people like James O'Keefe or even Trump himself to rile up the crowd versus the idiot left. Chances are high there will be some disruptions, possibly even violent ones if biker gangs repeat the infamous Rolling Stones debacle of 1969 (ask your grandparents). No matter how you slice it, Friday is probably going to go poorly.

And for all of those assholes out there screaming about people protesting, shut the fuck up. We had to deal with eight long years of racist comments made against our president, even questioning his birth long after that horse died. Go back and see the protests that happened after Obama won in 2008. It's very similar. The big difference here is that Obama just continued the status quo which no one wanted. His hope and change was a lie. Thus the rise of Trump.

And unless Republicans screw up royally, which they are almost certainly going to do, Democrats are way out in the wilderness. By losing their base over the last eight years with idiotic policies and identity politics amidst white bashing, they are DOA. Everytime they have had a chance to redeem themselves, the shoot themselves in the foot. Booker and 12 other traitors shot down cheaper drug prices because of the money they are taking from Big Pharma. How well do you think that is going to look down the road?

So the democratic party, for now, is dead. What happens when the GOP screws up too? Will people go back to a party in decline or decide bullets work better? There are ways for the Democrats to survive but it is unlikely they can ever truly change and thus the chances for collapse are all too readily seen,

The GOP is going to kill millions with their health care plan, unless they have some super secret plan that no one on Earth has thought of before, which is, let's face it, impossible. If you think your premiums are high now, they are going to double over the next few years. Health care will be for rich people only which is what the GOP wants. They couldn't care less about the little guy and sooner than later, that fact is going to send many to an early grave. Again, when this happens two things could occur. Democrats could band together and demand a single payer plan to fix everything, which it would, especially if we model it after France's which is one of the best on the planet. This could give them a wedge issue and catapult them back into power. Democrats lost the House in 2010 because of Health care. Republicans lost it in 2006 because of SS. If the Republicans destroy both, they may not make it to ballot box as millions may decide to revolt instead.

Even if the masses don'r riot, a fact I think is of high probability, the chances are also good that the GOP could exploit their power to gain even more. If we start seeing a spat of terrorist attacks soon after the inauguration, or even at it, Trump will clamp down, declare martial law and then we are all screwed. Chances are good that Trump will start a war with someone before the year is up. Whether it's a trade war with China, an all out assault on ISIS (something that should have been done years ago), or a nuclear stand off with North Korea, things are coming to a head. Whenever a society starts falling into these patterns, civilizations change drastically and many times, end violently.

Because we have no adults in power anymore, this world is about to crash into itself. Do not kid yourself that Trump is going to be a great president. Chances are far greater he will be our last president.

Unlike many, I want Trump to work out. Why you ask? Because I like heat and a roof over my head. At this point though, that seems to be a pipe dream as Trump appears to be headed for tyranny and the GOP is full steam ahead with ideas that will end this country. There has been a lot of stuff that has happened over the last week and most of it was covered by a spastic three year old posing as our media system. These guys really suck lately at seeing the forest for the trees.
Image result for trump as president cartoons
Let's start with the report that Russia has blackmail material over Trump. Is that really so hard to believe? The story which the MSM focused on was Trump and his penchant for watersports and for some reason not the fact that the dossier alleged treason on the part of Trump. You'd think that would be the their focus but no it was hardly mentioned. And then there is this: this story is unverified NOT discredited as some outlets have claimed. There is no reason to doubt the story any more than there is to believe it, even if we really want to either way. I really wish we had a media that knew how to do their fucking job anymore. I am tired of being the waterbearer there.

The group, Orbis, that complied the dossier is an intelligence gathering apparatus, hardly a reliable group to spread misinformation but in the day of Trump anything is possible I guess. The author is in hiding and that is hardly surprising there as there a lot of people who will want this guy dead. When Trump assumes the presidency, it may mean the same for people like me. I will never stop what I do. Come for me at your own peril.

People who knew the author, Christopher Steele, say he is afraid for his life and is not one to post false rumors. As an intelligence gathering group would be obliterated if it was caught peddling fake news, this seems an unlikely scenario. So if that axiom holds true, Trump is guilty of everything being said and means this country is headed for disaster.
Image result for trump as president cartoons
Then Trump picked a fight with John Lewis. Civil rights icon. On MLK weekend. Brilliant. By the way, Lewis' district is NOT a hellhole and a man who literally fought for his rights and cannot be said to be all talk and no action. This bodes badly for his interactions with world leaders as he tweets could start a war.

Trump has also said he wants to change venues for the press room to a larger place outside the White House. His last press conference was a shambles where he packed the room with sycophants to laugh and jeer at his command while ignoring news outlets like CNN which he considered "fake news." Now he says he wants to bring in bloggers and alt news, so instead of CNN we get Alex Jones and replacing MSNBC will by Dan from his mom's basement but loves Trump on his blog. Yeah, that won't suck worse than now. Let the tyranny begin.

However, there are also several reasons why Trump may not survive four years figuratively or literally. His business deals which he has refused to divest fully from may lead to impeachment hearings especially if they become so obvious even the Republicans cannot ignore them. His recent deal to expand his golf course in Scotland is just one example that the Constitution explicitly forbids.

And there is also this: Ryan and his cronies are talking about privatizing SS, Medicare and Medicaid as they also work on destroying the health care system. If any one of these things goes belly up, the blowback will be intense and possibly deadly. Trump has said he wants health care for all. Here, here and I pray he is honest on this. If the GOP does as bad a job as I think they will, health care will end for all of us. When that happens, and thousands start dying, expect bullets to start flying their way when a furious public decides enough is enough.

Historically, the Republicans have destroyed the country everytime they achieved this much power. 1929 and 2007 should be stark reminders that these assholes are really bad at what they do and chances are high that the world is about to end in spectacular fashion. Just remember America, you voted for this.
Image result for trump as president cartoons
Ryan talked about his plan to privatize social security today, a carbon copy repeat of 2005 when they tried the exact same thing to disastrous results. The main reason why democrats gained the House back in 2006 was this talk that was almost 100% unpopular across the board. Whatever your age, race, sex, religion or whatnot was, this idea was anathema to almost everyone. Has anything changed these last 12 years you ask? Nope. Comments sections about this story was 99% negative. If the GOP even attempts to bring this up they stand to lose a landslide election in 2018 regardless. Few are that dumb to vote to make themselves or their children, penniless.

We stand at an abyss, and sorry to piss on the liberals, but Hillary would have been barely better. It was be a different story but the same end of the world scenarios would be playing out. The fact the democrats, 13 of them, turned against the American people because of drug money they get from Big Pharma shows how out of touch they are and why I will NEVER vote for another democrats as long as I live who isn't named Liz Warren or Bernie Sanders or the like. Corporate democrats can fuck off. You can ruin the world on your own dime.
Image result for trump as president cartoons
The world is coming to an end people. If you don't believe me, feel free to open a history book and watch what happens when a society starts to approach it's demise. It's a blueprint for what is about to occur here. I hope I am wrong and Trump becomes the greatest president in history. But the chances for that are slim at best and chances are good a year from now, most of us won't be alive anyway.

These assholes are going to kill us all. Trump wants a health care plan now. The GOP on the other hand, has nothing, because their plan was stolen by Obama and worked about as well as it was ever going to. When the Heritage Foundation is where the idea originated, you know it's a dog long term. So they continue to squabble among themselves, conjuring up images of Nero fiddling as the country burns. This is not going to end well for anyone. Let's see those runner ups in another week rocketing toward the Apocalypse.
Image result for gop health care plans cartoons
10)James O'Keefe- The king of fake news got punked this week when undercover agents caught him on camera trying to hire agent provocateurs to disrupt the Trump rally and then blame liberals for their actions. This is a tactic done for centuries and we're on to you, O'Keefe. His videos have been horrific for the country, destroying ACORN and convincing millions of people of his altered reality. His abortion videos were selectively edited, contrary to what some have claimed and he was the only one arrested for voter fraud when he tried to vote under someone else's name. Nice going schmuck. Drop dead already.

9)Trump's cabinet picks-  Most of Trump's cabinet seem woefully inadequate for the job. A plethora of billionaires running the show does not inspire confidence in me. We saw Ben Carson wither under questioning by Liz Warren (think how great things would be if it was her going into the White House), Tillman cozy up to Russia and several say very troubling things about China. His pick for Education Secretary has no experience in that field and is a huge proponent of getting rid of public schools for for profit ones instead. Stats show that just like private prisons, they are run pretty poorly with our youth suffering because of it. Even people who voted for him and some high profile pundits are sounding the alarm about this and many think we are on the verge of everything collapsing. Choices matter people. Considering that Trump said today that the One China policy was on the block, we should be very afraid of either a trade war or a real one will happen before the end of the year.

8)Ringling Brothers- I used to love going to the circus as a kid and even went a few years back to Big Apple Circus with my sister and her kids and had a blast. But then elephants were phased out, which I understand, and that led to the end of this 146 year institution. If you get a chance, go see one of the last tours of this spectacle. With today's kids having the attention span of a drunken gorilla, sitting for over two hours was too much. Hell, parents aren't any better.
Image result for gop health care plans cartoons
7)Celebrity Apprentice- Holy God does this show suck without Trump. I don't know what moron is overseeing this train wreck but he/she is either way our of their league or really bad at their job. The jobs the "celebrities" (really who are half these people?) have to do are nothing more than product placement with NO money raising stunts yet which are some of the best ones to watch. The icing on the cake for the this abomination of a TV show is the fucking editing. I have done editing in the past and know that you shouldn't cut away until at least seven or eight seconds have passed for a normal shot. While showing the videos they had prepared for one task, they kept cutting to reaction shots every other second, creating a strobe light effect and making understanding what was going on in the videos impossible. Please cancel this show already, fire the editor and send Arnold back to making shitty movies.

6)Weekend Films- Speaking of shitty movies, this weekend was chock full of disasters. January is always the dumping ground because this is when prestige movies open wide after their Christmas Day release for awards seasons purposes. Not since the disastrous Oct 23-25 weekend of last year have so many films died a painful death. The previous weekend saw Gem and the Holograms and Rock The Casbah compete for lowest grossing picture opening on 200 screens. Gem won that title. Also going under was Witch Hunter and another god awful Paranormal Activity film. This weekend was somehow worse. The only film that did okay was Patriot's Day which I cannot wait to see. Four others did not do as well. Silence and Live By Night did very poorly but let's be honest, both were pet projects by talented directors that never had a chance at a big reception. The subject matter wasn't going to resonate with a mass audience. The other two, Sleepless and the insipid Monster Trucks were dumped here to goose money out of a gullible audience. The one new film that opened big was the Bye Bye Man which is exactly what is going to happen to that film over the next two weeks. It opened big, but word is the film sucks and audiences have punished it with a C score. Next week, this will fall off the map as word of mouth kill it. If you go to the movies, see Hidden Figures playing now or Rouge One. They both rocked. Other than Patriot's Day, ignore the rest.

5)Homeless in Hawaii- Politicians are having a fit that homeless people are using war memorials as places to shit. Here's an easy solution: give the homeless people a home. Studies have shown that giving someone without a home an actual place to live cuts down costs of hospital visits, drug use and a host of other issues this country has roundly ignored for decades. Utah gave all their homeless a place to live and the results have been astounding. Let's do this nation wide and we no longer have to worry about poo bombs at Pearl Harbor.

4)The Police- The cops are asking for MORE militarization under Trump and I am inclined to think he will go through with it. If you think living in the inner city is bad now, wait until shock troops are on very corner and black and Hispanic people get harassed daily. So much for Posse Comitatus. If you are black and voted for Trump, congratulations you voted to get rid of your health care and your freedom. Enjoy prison.
Image result for gop health care plans cartoons
3)The FBI- These assholes were in fine form this week. We found out first that for some inane reason the FBI gave the gun back to a guy who would eventually kill 5 and wound dozens more in Ft Lauderdale airport. So let me get this straight. A lunatic comes into your offices claiming the CIA is forcing him to watch ISIS videos and voices in his head are telling him to kill people. He gets committed, let out a few days later and then, wait for it, GIVEN HIS FUCKING GUN BACK! What more do you need to see this guy was a real threat. Then, after a closed door meeting with James Comey and Congress, people left PISSED. They couldn't talk about what they had seen but it was clear they were no happy. Comey is a traitor who should have been fired two seconds after that letter came out derailing Clinton at the last minute. But outgoing President Pussy didn't do that. We are so screwed.

2)Corey Bookey and the Traitorous 13- The democrats cannot seem to realize that their party is in freefall. Every time they try to do anything positive, some greedy corrupt politicians step in the way. This week, they had all the votes they needed to bring down drug prices. But then 13 democrats jumped ship and the bill died. Why did they vote against it? According to their spokespeople, they were worried that defective drugs were come across the border which begs the question where are all the dead Canadians killed by their awful drugs? Oh that's right, they don't exist because drugs coming out of Canada are every bit as safe as the ones here. The fact that Booker gets tons of money from Big Pharma of course had nothing to do with his decision. Here are the rest: Bennet (CO), Booker (NJ), Cantwell (WA), Carper (DE), Casey (PA), Coons (DE), Heinrich (NM), Heitkamp (ND), Menendez (NJ), Murray (WA), Tester (MT) and Warner (VA). This means that those living in NJ, DE or WA have no representation beyond big business. Vote these assholes out of office when they come up and let's get some true progressives in there.The current democratic party is useless. Until we get new blood in there, nothing is going to change.
Image result for gop health care plans cartoons
1)Republicans and health care- Health care destroyed the democratic party. Instead of focusing on jobs, they went right into a death spiral and never recovered. It led to their loss in 2010 and beyond. Unfortunately for the GOP, as they control everything, they have to actually come up with a plan which they 100 % have no idea on what to do. It already causing problems in the ranks as some want a replacement plan now and others foolishly want to kick the can down the road. That is not possible as if they wait too long, companies will pull out of the insurance markets and if they go back to the way things were, prices will soon skyrocket out of control. The media is already showing sick people pleading to live. It will be worse when we start seeing coffins and lots of them. What they want to do is not feasible as keeping costs low while eliminating the mandate is physically impossible. They are the dog that caught the car. Saying no is easy. Doing something that actually works is far, far harder. The best route would be a single payer plan which the GOP has no interest in. So whatever they do cobble together is almost certain to fail and with it, this country. If people start dying in huge numbers, the GOP will fall to infighting and most likely, assassination attempts. When you start playing with people lives and that of their loved ones. getting shot at is inevitable. We are rapidly reaching the end game people where the idiots on both sides of the aisle we have put into office kill us once and for all and we have no one to blame but ourselves. So congratulation GOP you are indeed douchebag of the week.

If you are thrilled Trump and the GOP took over the country, I have a feeling that support will be short lived when they destroy the planet once and for all. It is abundantly clear that way too many people who rely on Obamacare voted for Trump, somehow unaware that they were also voting to put themselves into an early grave. Some true morons thought Obamacare and the ACA were two separate entities and were shocked when they found out otherwise. On Meet The Press this week, Chuck Todd showed three counties where Trump won by mid double digits while anywhere from one quarter to half the population of said town used Obamacare. What do you think will happen when the Republicans fail to live up to their promises about fixing the health care plan, even though they have come up with nothing for eight years? Chaos. Repeal is easy. What comes next however isn't.
Image result for trump cartoons 2017
Recent polls show that the population hates the soaring prices which have come to be an expensive burden upon the middle class. Tack that along with ballooning deductibles and skyrocketing CEO pay and there is a real sense as to why people hate Obamacare, although to be fair, prices would have gone almost as much without it because price controls were never a part of the act. But here's the rub, that same poll showed that the thing the public hates most next is the mandate. How dare they tell me to buy something, Idiot America screams, unaware that we require insurance for a car, why not a person? Plus, without said mandate, health insurance rates will skyrocket as only sick people will be on it. It's like asking for a glass of water that isn't wet.

With the only things so far being talked about are HSA's and selling across state lines, neither of which will do much to cut costs which is the number one thing for the Republicans to enact. Considering who is in office, that seems unlikely.  So when they start fiddling with the system, it looks clear they will break it once and for all, only this time they will be 100% responsible for it. The democrats should have enacted a single payer plan but because of assholes like Joe Lieberman, that did not happen. But since they control the whole shebang, they are the ones who have to figure out how not to wreck it once and for all.

Republicans are talking about delaying the inevitable for several years, some even have it past 2020, but Trump in his infinite wisdom wants something now. And here he is not wrong. If the GOP stretches uncertainty out, insurance companies will most likley balk and pull out of all of the exchanges. This will end the system if it occurs as no one will be able to afford insurance at all at that point. And if the Republicans break health care, as the do with everything else they have ever touched, how soon before the pitchforks and torches come out?

The Media will parade dying or families of dead people the GOP literally killed. How well do you think that will play out? Recent polls show that Trump is the driving force in the GOP, not rank and file Republicans. If things go south, voters are more likely going to blame people like Ryan and McCain and not the President. That means they are so screwed when their health care plan goes far worse than Obamacare did. We need a single payer plan and cost controls on drugs. Without either, this system cannot survive.

Rumors have already surfaced that the Russians have Trump with blackmail material, with one salacious rumor being that Trump went all R Kelly on some hookers and there is film of it. That would make for interesting news cast. We now go to this breaking news of our president urinating on several women. Other highlights from today's press conference, which I have yet to watch, also has Trump going off on CNN as "fake news" and saying his sons will take over the business, which is not a blind trust and could lead to eventual impeachment charges. This is what we get to look forward to for the next four years. Fun. You voted for this America. Enjoy.

Sunday, January 8, 2017


All societies are based on mutual trust. When that goes, so does the civilization. Because of religious, corporate and greedy individuals, trust in this nation is long gone. That spells disaster for us. Rome ended when trust was lost. So goes our eventual end thanks to the spineless Democrats, the moronic Republicans, and the pointless media. It is near impossible to know what is what anymore. Science, the media, and our politicians are all either liars or being portrayed as such. When nothing can be believed, our collapse becomes inevitable. Enjoy things while you can people, because this country, along with the planet, is about to experience something not seen in centuries: the end of everything. Let's see those runner ups that prove this Earth is on borrowed time.'
Image result for government lies cartoons
10)Mariah Carey- I HATE this woman. She is a spoiled diva whose best days are long behind her. It recently came out that the reason for her engagement ending was she was spending ridiculous amounts of money every day and she was marrying a billionaire. When a guy with unlimited money thinks you are spending too much, you are spending WAY too much. She was spending 10 grand a day on makeup and hair everyday for God's sake. But New Year's slapped her around when she lost it on live TV and stood around as her vocal track continued behind her proving she is lip syncing. I won't deny she has a great voice. However, her songs suck for the most part and if she is using a side track, maybe's it's time to give it up. Something tells me she can't hit that high range anymore.

9)Conan O'Brian- It has not been a good decade for the red headed comic. I liked his late night show but found his Tonight Show stint unbearable. He was not a good fit for it and the studio agreed firing him four months later and replacing him with Leno again. He was then given a nightly show on TBS but ratings have flatlined there as well. Talk is they will reduce the number of shows to once a week like John Oliver or Sam Bee does. This is a far fall from a man once on the highest rated nightly show of all.

8)North Korea- Deranged midget Kim Jun Un says he will test fire an ICBM, which will surely have no earth ending possibilities, especially since Orange Hitler will be taking office soon. This is yet another huge failure by W. who was too busy attacking a country with no weapons of mass destruction to notice that a real country with WMD's was becoming an actual threat. Bush helped start the ball rolling on this planet's end. Trump will probably complete it.
Image result for government lies cartoons
7)The MSM- We keep hearing about fake news and how it's ruining everything and then the MSM goes on to repeat stuff that is blatantly false. You can't scream about fake news stories when you are the one's propagating a lot of them. This week, we still hear the Russians hacked the election which, depending on what news you are listening to, it's either true or it isn't. Either way, the government in it's insane desire to end the planet, has decided that national security trumps telling people the facts of a case and hardcore investigative reporters that actually still report the news (even to MSM sources) say they can find zero actual evidence of said hacking beyond the troubling "Trust us. We're telling the truth." Right. WE DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE! 9/11 ended this country. We just didn't know it. And that happened because the media, the government and even the intelligence agencies all lied to get us in a war we never should have been. And then just to solidify this fact, the media has continued to lie for over a decade now. The inflation rate, the unemployment rate and other stats are made up of a whole cloth rather than real information and apparently they think we are too stupid to do the math ourselves, which isn't far from the truth as even the most respected reporter keeps toeing the party line and ignoring the truth.

6)Mitch McConnell- This fucking asshole is one huge piece of shit. If you voted for him, fuck you too. This dick had the balls this week to call out Democrats for even attempting to stall any Supreme Court nominee, which this ass did for almost a year. According to him, the public won't stand for it. Stand for it? I am demanding it! If the Democrats act like the pussies they have been, they are going to get run over. So if they do this, they are done as a political party and a new party will emerge from it's ashes. They are on borrowed time right now.
Image result for government lies cartoons
5)Muslim Terrorists- In just the past 24 hours there have been a spate of attacks across the planet. Besides the usual explosions in Middle East nations where they can't even live peacefully among each other, there was an attack by a guy who was both a psycho AND an ISIS supporter at FT Lauderdale airport and an ISIS attack in Jerusalem that killed four. If we want to stop this we have to accept that maybe the religion is the problem and stomping it out may be our only hope to save the planet. I hate all religions for the most part but no one else is doing this level of harm to the planet. If this was a political movement, it would be banned everywhere. But because it masquerades as a religion, we are forced to accept it. I don't think so. I am not for banning anything but I am running out of ideas how to save the world from this scourge that one day may end us all.

4)Republicans- They had a banner week. On the first day of the new Congress, instead of focusing on anything that matters, the House decided to get rid of the independent ethics committee. This pissed off just about everyone, including the Speaker and the President-elect. After the House was inundated with phone calls by people against this from both sides of the aisle, the plan died quick. It is this reason I am truly thankful that Trump is president and not a Bush or the like. Likewise with Social Security which the Republicans are all set to destroy . When they tried this in 2005, even with the President's backing, they were forced down by colleagues and constituents that hated the idea. It was this that lost them the House in 2006. This could be deja vu all over again as the President is unlikely to go along with it as well as Congress people who want to keep their jobs. If their plan does go through, like their awful health care plan, this country will end and voting for the next set of losers will be the last of our problems.

3)Donald Trump and his Cabinet Picks- His picks so far, let's face it, suck. They are everything he promised not to do. So much for draining the swamp. He's stocking it instead. Worse, none of them have given the Ethics Board anything yet and hearings start next week. This is a HUGE problems and could lead to the removal of several of his picks if conflicts of interests come up later which is why they need to be vetted first. This is unheard of. If Trump doesn't get impeached in his first year, I'll be impressed. He's already on thin ice according to several lawyer, especially with his blind trust that he has yet to set up. His presidency is doomed to fail at this rate.

2)The Hateful Chicago Four- Four black thugs beat up a mentally challenged white guy this week, filmed it all and streamed it live on Facebook, not even hiding heir faces. These people should be executed on live TV and see how they like it. The fact that not only was this an attack on a weaker person, he was white and they went off about his race. So much for black people not being racist as this video destroyed that argument. It also further proves that BLM is making people into terrorists by setting forth an agenda of white resentment that is found in ALL black society. I hate to break to them but black resentment was not present in all white societies. After this video however, I am not so sure. Race relations are at an all time low and black people are responsible here. White people aren't behind your problems. It's either black people making your own life hard or society rules which you refuse to even try to change or accept. Stop killing each other. Study how the Japanese overcame bias to become accepted members of society. Mirror it exactly and watch your problems disappear.
Image result for government lies cartoons
1)The Truth- The Truth is an outdated notion apparently. It doesn't seem to matter to the press, to the government, to science or to anyone for that matter. It is impossible to know what is what anymore. Climate change sure seems real but people cannot even decide on the thickness of Arctic ice which should be a definable thing. Math is not subjective. Did the Russians hack us? I have no clue. Every time I think I can say with some degree of certainty, some other factor comes in that makes me question every thing I thought I knew. This is killing us. When facts are in question, society ends. Nobody trusts anyone or anything anymore and not without good reason. Everyone is out for themselves, everyone is a crook and nothing is to be believed at face value. I have worked for many a company where the pay you think you are getting isn't even close to what you will actually make. Trying to fix a problem some company made can be frustrating to say the least, not to mention time consuming and expensive. The press, which should be the one thing that always says the truth, has been severely lacking for decades now, since corporations took over all of the media and drove it down to six. This country has let monopolies flourish for decades and it has been every bit the disaster we were always warned it would be. The reason we don't have better broadband with sky high rates is because we have no competition, and whenever some comes up, the courts crush it. as happened recently with a service that would have cut cable costs by half was destroyed by the Supreme Court. The government doesn't try to hide their lies as their numbers for unemployment and inflation are provably wrong, while the press mirrors everything they say as gospel. The truth is no longer around. And because of that, we have years at best, months more likely before this whole house of cards comes falling down. With Republicans at the helm, this is certain to get worse quicker. So live life while you can because, the end is coming. And we all are to blame. Congratulations truth, you are over and indeed we are all douchebag of the week.

Brexit confirmed that idiocy has gone global. Leaving the EU was beyond stupid with what will eventually destroy the country of England when they realize that separating yourself from a global economy is foolish and self defeating. Are there parts of the EU Charter that suck? Yes. But rather than fix the parts that blow, they went the usual route which is to throw the baby out with the bathwater. We are about to do the same thing here with health care.

First off, to 99% of those reading this out there, I can safely say you know jack shit as to how insurance works. I do, having being licensed to sell health insurance in several states as well as coming from a family whose many relatives all work in the field, including my father who was a high level executive as such companies as Aetna, Liberty Mutal and ACE. On top of that, my health is quite poor so I have had the misfortune of having to use the health care system and all the problems that it entails. My experience has been that in selling insurance, almost everyone I ever talked with had no concept as to HOW insurance works. Likewise, with my knowledge of the health care system, I can testify as to how it doesn't work.

Many of you hate the mandate. If you are one of said individuals, congratulations, you're a card carrying idiot. Without that mandate, which ALL insurance world wide needs to survive, there would be NO health care. Healthy individuals even out the costs for the sick. If there are no healthy people in the system and only sick people get insurance, premiums will be thousands a month. With no subsidies, as the GOP is going to kill that by months end, no one will be able to afford insurance who isn't super rich. The GOP is discovering quickly that since they have no plan other than some truly terrible ideas that will not work, they are up a creek without a paddle.

So far, this is the GOP plan. Don't get sick. And if you do, die early. They have championed HSA's which are poor at best and require someone to have disposable income to even use. They also want to sell insurance across state lines,which will do little to fix costs. Other than possibility of extending high risk pools at the state level, which will be hampered by previous tries which have all been woefully underfunded, they have nothing that will fix what American's want which is less red tape and cheaper plans. The GOP plan so far will not only not accomplish this, it may send premiums skyrocketing far greater than the failure that Obamacare has been. The main reason for skyrocketing plans has less to do with Obamacare and everything to do with CEO pay which has doubled in ten years. Tell me that isn't a reason for premiums going up!

This is why Obamacare may not be going anywhere fast. Until they come up with a replacement plan, Obamacare is here to stay. If they are truly suicidal, the Republicans will go back to the old way of things, while keeping things like staying on your parents insurance until the age of 26 and preventing companies from denying insurance to those with pre-existing conditions. This will drive up costs beyond words and no one will have affordable insurance anymore. When 30 million people lose their health insurance and people start dying because of it, get ready for riots, political assassinations and chaos. When parents start losing their children because the Republicans are dickwads, expect bullets to start flying their way.

For those on the message boards stop talking about how conservatives are all assholes for voting for Trump and how 'libtards" are morons. Neither side is right about anything anymore and calling each other names is pointless. Is Obamacare great? Hell no. But it was a step in the right direction and now the backward leaning Republicans are trying to kill all health care and with it, this country. If Republicans don't take costs into control, the public is going to kill them and so far, they have ignored that part completely. If they start going too far, CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE! Just this week, the House had to back down killing their ethics probes because, as Trump accurately said, we have bigger fish to fry. This happened because the Congress was inundated with calls telling them this was too far and they backed down. I have a feeling this is going to happen more and more, when Trump starts going up against his own party.

I said it in a previous column but here it is again: Thank God Trump is president and not some other Republican because they would be raping this country blind and there would be nothing to do to stop it. The American people voted for this by putting back into office all the people in Congress who caused this mess. There were other choices you know and most of you went right back to the morons who never should have been re-elected. This is why we need some sort of civics test so that idiots who do not know how government works to not be able to vote anymore. I have a feeling that more Democrats than Republicans would fail, but if that happened, so be it, Read a fucking book once in a while America that doesn't have pictures in it.

Health care is failing and it is doing so because morons refuse to learn how it is handled. The same can be said for our justice system, the war on drugs, and a million other things that no longer work as they are supposed to. The Republicans are right that drastic changes are needed. I just fear that the changes they are making will kill us all.

There are choppy waters ahead for the GOP. When the Democrats had all the power back in 2008 they bickered so much among themselves that nothing got accomplished. Republicans appear to be doing the same. Establishment Republicans are saying they have a "mandate" which is odd as they lost the popular vote for almost three million. This has caused them to go hog wild and appear to be trying to destroy every safety net this country has. However, Trump is going to govern as a populist whether they like or not and that means a bitter fight between the Congress and the Trump administration. He hasn't even taken office and he has already had a positive effect on the corrupt Congress.

Yesterday, The House decided they were going to scrap the independent Ethics Committee and instead have the House self investigate which never works ever anywhere. They were all proud and patting themselves on the back as Democrats spit venom at them. Then, they got a most unlikely ally, Donald Trump, who publicly said he hated the idea as well as Paul Ryan who voted against it too. With so much opposition, the House quietly backed down today, a stunning reversal which already showed a Congress already guilty of massive, unpopular overreach. This is how they wanted to start the new session?

We have also heard how the GOP Congress want to gut entitlement programs, a sure fire third rail topic that will have their own constituents calling for their heads. Just last week, Mike Pence said once again that the Trump administration will have no part in doing anything that affects entitlements, which again will lead to a bitter fight between Trump and the rest of the Republicans. Trump will NOT be doing anything that unpopular, it's not in his DNA, so what are Republicans going to do when Trump sides with the Democrats and proceeds to veto bills like this. Plus, Trump has said time and time again he wants to fix the country with a huge infrastructure bill (an actual good idea) and building the wall, neither of which senior leaders seem to want to have anything to do with. This could lead to all sorts of problems with Trump butting heads non stop with people telling him no. Something tells me he isn't going to like that and if he has strong enough support, especially from his less stable supporters, dissent may be deadly, if not at least political suicide. Ryan is hardly that popular within Trump supporter ranks and if he fights too hard against his policies, he may pay in the next election. There is also the possibility that some may even take it to more lethal extremes.

The GOP is talking about vouchers for Medicare, block grants for Medicaid, utterly destroying the health care system, food stamp cuts/elimination (with some states probably passing laws what kind of food can be bought with food stamps), ending public education and a host of other things that Trump is not guaranteed to go along with, unlike say someone like Jeb Bush or Scott Walker who would have rubber stamped all of this. Scary as this sounds, we could be in even worse trouble if a different Republican other than Trump would have won.

The problem with Trump isn't so much economic fears but international ones. His tweets, the latest being a slam against deranged midget Kim Jun Un, could start a war, especially if it's aimed at someone as unstable as Kim. Twitter roasted him mercilessly for being an idiot and that his tweets may kill us all. But at least we have some protection against a power mad GOP, hell bent on ending this world.
