Still the party of no

So Republican Paul “See my nipples through my pecs” Ryan has no interest in working with Democrats on health care reform.

The Republicans have been the part of no for so long that their lips can no longer form the yes word unless it relates to screwing the old, the young, the poor and immigrants. Now there’s a ruling party with its collective head up its ass. Maybe they should check for polyps while they’re up there. According to their health care proposals, that’s the only way they’ll ever get a colonoscopy. Continue reading →

Compromise should not be a dirty word

I want to be gleeful over how the current person pretending to be president (CPPP) had his butt handed to him last week courtesy of the Freedom Caucus. But I can’t because ultimately the American people are the losers.

The ACA is a bill that needs tweaking. It’s not perfect. It’s the first step in providing Americans with the guarantee of health care coverage enjoyed by every other first world country on earth, including Mexico. But because the R’s refused to reach across the aisle to work with D’s, they are stuck trying to negotiate with a faction of their Continue reading →

I don’t understand

Why isn’t it a conflict of interest for Orangeman to travel to his hotel every weekend and then charge us to pay for his protection detail that stay at that hotel. If that isn’t a conflict, or at a minimum a questionably immoral thing to… oh wait, now I get why he does it.

Poor Orangeman

He just found out that there are actually bigger bullies than him in DC and he lost to them. Maybe he should go to Mexico where they have universal health care and can find a therapist for him at no charge. Continue reading →

Ick, ick, icky

Am I the only one who suspects that the reason Melania doesn’t live with Orangeman at the White House is because that role is already being filled by Ivanka?  And I mean that in both the personal and political sense.

Ick. Ick. Ick. Continue reading →

Why men should not be leading the world

Because a young man in Australia jumped into a crocodile invested body of water to impress an English girl who was touring his country. When asked if she was special and that’s why he did it, the young man answered that no, she was just a girl. He said this from the hospital where he was taken when a crocodile chomped down on his arm.

He sounds like someone who should be in Orangeman’s cabinet. Continue reading →

What we have is an embarrassment of riches

Writing a weekly column means always worrying about finding a topic for the next one. The horror of staring at a blank document on your computer screen while your mind remains as blank as that document is one of the scariest moments in a writer’s life. Which is why I have finally found something for which to be thankful to the current person pretending to be president (CPPP). As long as he remains in power, he provides an endless supply of topics that need to be addressed. In fact, some might say columnists nowadays are facing an embarrassment of riches.

The more I think about it

The more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. Now I can’t even look frumpy in my own home. And forget about scratching my butt. The TV and microwave and toaster and smoke detector are all taking pictures of me and sending them to some poor soul whose job it is to be bored to death. I feel guilty if I don’t at least attempt to look a little nice for my refrigerator now. I think I’ll just go sit in my bedroom in the dark and revel in knowing that no one can see how messy I Continue reading →
