I had a ‘creative’ dream last night. In my dream, I created this beautiful engraved headstone for my parents, both of whom passed away many years ago: It was just ONE gravestone, but it was big enough to cover two graves. On the side, was a stone engravement of my father’s profile. And he was holding in his arms, his wife, my mother. And she was happy, and in love, and young, and cuddled softly in his arms. She was wearing her favorite checkered dress, and her high school saddle shoes. It was them, at the beginning of their love, when their love was fresh and new. Their names were engraved on the right of the stone: the stone replicas of them both…engraved on the left.
This huge headstone was so beautiful in my dream, I woke up and wondered why MORE gravestones of married couples aren’t seen in graveyards. All the graves are separate. Why not make just one gravestone for the couples who mate for life, to be remembered as mates for all eternity? I bet there are many couples that would love that.
I’m sure I had this dream because neither one of my parents got a traditional funeral. My father died first, and my mother donated his body to science. He died of a humongous brain tumor…we thought, naively at the time, that he would go to Washington University and would help the students study brain tumors.
After he died, I put together this big shelving, meant to hold various things…but it was, to me, his headstone. It’s in the kitchen now, holding up bowls and a popcorn machine, and NOW on the very spot where he died, there a statue of King Tut.
That’s my dad’s gravestone. King Tut. I think he would find that amusing.
My mom, also died in our house. She made me promise every day that I would NOT put her name in the papers, nor tell anyone about her death. She too, gave her body to science, hoping it would help someone. Like my father, she too suffered horribly in the last years of her life, paralyzed on one side as was my father. Both with massive damage from hemorrhagic strokes.
The day she died, I was sleeping next to her bed, passed out on the floor, exhausted from the night before. I had been up for over 40 hours trying to suction mucus out of her throat because she had pneumonia.
The nurses would not come.
I remember thinking when they came to take her body away, that there would be no place for me to mourn, and no one to remember her to me. No one knew she died. No one was there to console me, tell me stories about her that only they knew. My husband did the best he could, but now I know that funerals really are a special necessary. To help the people who love them bear the sorrow.
Nevertheless, funerals are too expensive for many now, and I have to wonder…are people cremating and donating because they can’t afford a funeral?
Right above the bed, where my mother died, I put a giant poster of the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany. Whenever I asked her if there was one place she would want to go, she said it would be to Germany to see that Castle. So, I got a big beautiful gold frame, and engraved what I thought would go on her grave, and hung it right above the place that she died, in her King side bed which seemed to engulf her tiny body.
She never had the money to go to Germany, and I didn’t have the money to send her.
Eight months after my mother died, I had a dream, that her body was going into a cremation oven. It was on New Year Eve, 2002, that I had that dream. Her spirit hugged me before she went into that fire, and the love that I felt from her in that dream was bigger than ANY love I’ve ever felt on this earth. It was surreal. I often wonder if my mother’s body had been cremated that night for real, and why emotions in dreams can be so much stronger than in real life.
It was much later that I found out that bodies donated to science can go ANYWHERE. To dental students, to just about anywhere. The thought of my dad getting his teeth pulled out by a bunch of college students, when the real thing they should have been studying was his brain, left me horrified.
And by the way, in case you think that my parents were not religious, nothing could be farther from the truth. God, in our family, was in your heart, and in the sky, and a mystery to all mankind.
Which is why, the day after the dream, my husband and I both bought a Mega Million ticket, in which, we BOTH had the final number as 7, I took it as a sign from my parents who were thanking me for their lovely headstone that I designed in my head. Saying “See…you’re mates too!”
My mother’s King size bed was donated to the Veterans and in its place is my drum set, sitting under her ‘gravestone’ Castle in the sky. I play Gene Kruppa once in a while, because she always said when I played Gene Krupa’s “Sing, Sing, Sing” it put her to sleep.
You can’t do that in a graveyard. Just putting up the drum set alone would take a good 40 minutes.
So, don’t ask me why I’m telling you all this. It’s just that sometimes, when you have a creative dream…but wait! I just googled ‘coupled gravestones.”
I’m not the only one who had this dream…..darn. I was all ready to go be a stonemason.
You learn something new, every day….I better start saving up now….

Listening to the doomsday whining about the failure of the GOP Obamacare lite, I got to thinking about two men; Reagan and Edison.
But before I remember Ronald Reagan and Thomas Edison today, let me say this:
I think, after hearing about the “failure” of the Trump/Ryan health care repeal failing all day…I’m actually hopeful. It’s a GOOD thing it failed. FINALLY. It’s being debated as all legislation should be. And anybody with a brain knows it. While the cable news networks are all crying that this is the end of the GOP, it’s all nonsense.
Good thing I’m not on TV, I would be saying “Hey, remember, Obama GAVE us this nightmare, do you think we can fix it in a day?”
This should give us hope, not despair. Better a good plan, than one that will cripple us further. Everybody knew, except President Trump and Paul Ryan, that universal health care in America will leave the almost destroyed middle class bearing even more of a burden than they do now. I would LIKE to think that President Trump will see that his wish for universal health care is not what the people voted for. This country is not the America of 2000, the year Trump wrote about his desire for universal health care in his book. I would hope he sees, that even though it’s what he thinks is best, is NOT what America wants. Nor, is it in line with free markets.
So, yes, I’m happy tonight. You can’t fix stupid in a day. Mr. President…WE CAN WAIT.
Every day, I roll my mouse over a mousepad that I bought in Ft. Myers, Florida, in the gift shop at Thomas Edison’s winter home. It’s frayed around the edges, and worn, and yet, it’s one of my favorite things. It has a picture of Edison and the words:
“There is always a way to do it better….find it.”–Thomas Edison
That’s what ‘we the people’ should be demanding of Congress. Hey guys, start over. FIND a better way.
There’s another favorite item of mine, and it’s a book called The Notes. It was a collection of Ronald Reagan’s Private Collection of notes that he kept in his desk, mostly quotes from others that he used to live his life by.
Let me share a few of President’s Reagan’s favorites.
Regardless of theoretical pretensions, socialism is nothing but the application of dictatorial power— Leonard Read
(Universal health care IS socialism.)
The germ of dissolution of our Fed. govt. is in the Fed. Judiciary, an irresponsible body working like gravity, gaining a little today & a little tomorrow, & advancing its noiseless step like a thief over the field of jurisdiction until all shall be usurped from the states & the govt. of all be consolidated into one. –Thomas Jefferson
(9th Circuit Court, Obamacare.)
It will be of little avail to the people who laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood: if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what it will be tomorrow. –Alexander Hamilton
(Obamacare is HOW many pages long? Thousands?)
And last but not least:
A nation can survive its fools & even the ambitious but it cannot survive treason from within. For the traitor appears no traitor: he speaks in an accent familiar to his victims & wears their face & their garments….he rots the soul of the nation. He works secretly & unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city: he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. –Cicero
And so the infection of the ‘deep state’ is now to be feared. But hey! Thomas Edison didn’t give up. And because he didn’t give up to find that better way, the whole world was born anew.
Come on Congress…turn that light back on…go back to work…And Mr. President…
You KNOW….there has GOT to be a better way…FIND IT.
So, what has been the subject on the news since President Trump won the election?
The ‘rumor’ that Donald J. Trump was helped by Russia’s boogeyman, Vladimir Putin, to win the election. Everyone from Lindsey Graham, to John McCain, joined the whole liberal world screaming the accusation…but…
There IS no proof.
None. Nada. Zip. It’s all about destroying President Trump’s gold-plate reputation as a successful businessman who has great kids, a beautiful wife, and the energy of 20 men. His only vice (if you can call it that) is he likes to win.
The old “ruin their reputation” has been a favorite of the Democrats since they came off the plantations. And trying to connect President Trump to Russia is not sticking, but that isn’t stopping them from going full force on it.
Oh, wait. The deliberate attacks on President Trump had to stop today, because some terrorist mowed down some pedestrians in front of Big Ben. But by the afternoon, after we all got to see the disaster, they went right back at it….as if they couldn’t wait.
How do they take down Republicans? With simple rumors. Tax evasion. Or sexual perversions. They tried both on Donald Trump when he was running for office, but, it didn’t stick. And this won’t stick either.
Why? Because America, knows the con, and is tired of it. Not to mention we seethe at the great hypocrisy that we remember, of major crimes that were committed by the Clintons and the Obamas, and that was…ignored.
Guess what elite rookies? Hate to tell you, but your plan to erase our memories have not worked.
In the book, The 48 Laws of Power, Robert Greene explains how P.T. Barnum once used this tactic on an enemy, Mr. Pearle. Mr. Pearle had bought the Museum that Barnum wanted, right out from under his nose, and that was enough for some P.T. Barnum payback:
Barnum used two different tactics to ruin Peale’s reputation. The first was simple: He sowed doubts about the museum’s stability and solvency. Doubt is a powerful weapon. Once you let it out of the bag with insidious rumors, your opponents are in a horrible dilemma. On the one hand they can deny the rumors, even prove that you have slandered them. But a layer of suspicion will remain: Why are they defending themselves so desperately? Maybe the rumor has some truth to it? If, on the other hand they take the high road and ignore you, the doubts, unrefuted, will be even stronger. If done correctly , the sowing of rumors can so infuriate and unsettle your rivals that in defending themselves they will make numerous mistakes. This is the perfect weapon for those who have no reputation of their own to work from.
Right. See? It’s been around forever, and people have always fallen for it, and today you have cable news stations spreading the ‘rumors’, P.T. Barnum would have loved that.
Saul Slinky taught this attack method to both Hillary and Obama.
The rumor that President Trump won the election because Vladimir Putin rigged it, is just that: a rumor.
BUT…that rumor you heard that Obama went to Fiji (without Michelle) to marry his boyfriend?
That’s one you can believe.
I watched the hearings today on President Trump’s nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and no matter how many law examples the idiotic Democratic Senators cited, in order to trip him up, Judge Gorsuch was so far ahead of them and so much above repute, they were basically silenced into looking like fools if they dared attack him. And he did it all with a smile.
You know me, I have been worried that President Trump might appoint another Roberts, but no…the story Judge Gorsuch tells at the end…convinced me that yes, THIS man is one in million. My heart was struck with emotion when I heard his story for very personal reasons, because I once visited that graveyard in Boston, and for the same reason….searching for my ancestors, searching for America, searching for the profound birth of a great nation by a few courageous leaders of good heart and genius.
I was so overwhelmed at the site of those graves, that I ended up crying at the grave of James Otis, the lawyer who was instrumental in our fight against the Crown. While everybody else was wanting to go to lunch, I was having a profound emotional patriotic breakdown, leaning on the rock that was placed above his grave.
(You would have to know the life of James Otis.)
The tour guide of course, thought I was wacko, but then again, he was pretending to be Ben Franklin.
For Judge Gorsuch to even mention that graveyard to me, was a sign. The sign that the man was a true patriot, and our country would have a chance of not disappearing under some international ‘law’ but it would carry on as what it was always meant to be…
A nation ruled by laws, not men.
At least this Judge will try to see to it.
Anyway, I don’t know where or HOW President Trump found this man, but he is the best of the best, and a true American.
God blessed us with him. And if he doesn’t get confirmed, no doubt lighting will strike the Capitol.
Today’s unprecedented drilling from Congress, of F.B.I. Director, James Comey, was a farce. Basically, it was a staged attack, meant to make President Trump to be a liar, and unfit for the job. And James Comey was up and willing to take part in it..
Even up to the snarky comment that he couldn’t STAND the Patriots. Tell me, why even mention that personal tidbit of football in front of Congress, if it was not meant to personally attack the President, whose favorite and best buddy,Tom Brady, is the quarterback? I was almost wondering if George W. was up there in the balcony pulling the strings.
There was meaning in that little statement, which he explained, sort of haphazardly, that the reason was due to the fact that they always win.
An attack on Trump, was a subliminal message to ….who? To what? Nobody knows. We can only guess. Patriots fans are not amused.
Here we had an F.B.I. director, saying in no uncertain terms with words and body language, that he found no evidence whatsoever that President Trump was “wiretapped” by Obama.
Right, and my mother was a Iberian monk, who ate wild monkeys for breakfast.
Dear America, remember—-these guys lie. They lie. Recall that NSA director, James Clapper, said that Americans were NOT being spied upon.
What? Do you think that James Comey wouldn’t lie? Or, was the spying done by Britain as Judge Napolitano said, just so they could all deny it?
What does this mean? As my mother would always say: Consider the source. Comey got his lawyer education from that old stomping ground of Obama’s…Chicago University. From there, he went to one of the highest offices in New York, U.S. Attorney General Southern District. Then he went on to State Attorney General….and served under President Bush. After 2005, he went to serve with Lockheed Martine, then he got a job at Columbia Law School, was on the board of the famous drug money-laundering HSBC, and then, lo and behold, Obama made him the director of the FBI, where he treated Hillary’s many crimes…with nothing. Sure, he listed all her crimes, but suggested no punishment.
Today, he told everyone that while ‘leaks’ are serious, he has no intention, of treating them as such.
He went on to say that Putin wanted Trump as President to put more fire on the rumors that Putin and Trump were best buddies.
I don’t know about you, but Comey is just another well placed ace by the establishment (Which I still contend is ruled by the Bushes.) Put him right up there with Justice Roberts and John McCain.
Just like Supreme Court Justice Roberts, who gave us Obamacare to our mortified surprise, James Comey let Trump and the whole country know today that he is keeping the investigations on Russia and Trump…open.
Basically, forever. That was a message to Trump and the patriots that support him: WE rule. Not you.
We CAN and will, destroy you.
If you don’t think that James works for the “establishment” elites of the day, then why did they put this on RIGHT when Judge Neil Gorsuch Borsh was making is wonderful speech to the public? To hurt President Trump…again.
Nothing is left to chance.
One thing is sure, let’s hope there are enough Patriots working for the F.B.I, to keep us safe.
Their director, as far as this nobody is concerned, needs to put the coin in his pocket and go sit in the bleachers.
Will James Comey be the man to bring down President Trump? Well, go ahead and try it.
He should remember…that Patriots…always win.
It’s ridiculous, this “Nobody sees any evidence of wiretapping.” mantra that has spread over Washington like a fine spray of misty crappy fog. President Trump accused ‘President’ Obama of wiretapping him, and to most of America it was pretty clear he did, because the news reported his conversations with the Australian President. What else would you call that?
But oh..OBAMA wouldn’t give that order.
Give me a break. Nobody commits that kind of crime unless he is sure he will be protected at the very top. And Presidents always keep their reputations out of the fray…they always—ALWAYS, do their dirty work through surrogates so to keep their reputations intact. That’s been going on throughout human history.
Sadly, they don’t teach history anymore.
It’s the same with Benghazi. Who really gave the order to stand down? After all the noise and fog, nobody has ever pointed the finger at Obama. Yet, it would be just like him. Even if he didn’t give the order, he was certainly informed, and agreed with it. He went right along with the cover-up, and spreading the story of how nobody should insult Islam, which to me, proves he was the instigator of it all. Reports came out later that he was running guns through Libya to ISIS, and therefore Benghazi had to be buried for “national security” reasons.
Who out there doesn’t believe that Obama considered Donald J. Trump to be a national security threat?
So, why won’t the republicans stand behind President Trump on this? Well…let’s us count the many reasons.
- Obama is black, and they always back down to the race card.
- They WANT to harm President Trump.
- As globalists, protecting the office of the Presidency takes precedent over all others matters. And if the globalists have their men in all the intelligence agencies, they really can tie the President’s hands.
Tom Cotton, the Senate, Ted Cruz…all the globalists are quick to condemn President Trump for suggesting that Obama would have had him wiretapped.
It’s ridiculous. Everybody knows that Obama wrote an executive order that he could not only arrest anybody…any citizen…in the United States that he deemed an enemy, but have him arrested without a trial, in secret, and hold them indefinitely or even ordered to have them killed.
Nobody would know…but the President and a few top people. Even the family of the person would never know.
If that’s not tyranny, I don’t know what else is. A simple wiretap is nothing compared to that power. And yet, did you hear ANY congressman or woman say a word about it?
Maybe one or two. And yet these dweeby Congressmen pontificate about the Constitution whenever they get the chance.
It’s a joke the way some Republicans in Congress and the Democrats still treat us all. Trying to say that President Trump should just apologize to the great Obama.
Ted Cruz was his old self today on Face the Nation…going through all the old—Well Obama did do such and such and such, so he is capable of it, but we have to investigate—and then he smiles.
I’m sorry, I was ready to forgive the man, but no, I can’t.
How stupid do they think we are? We all know that everyone’s phone calls, our emails, etc, are being monitored and yet we are supposed to buy the line that they wouldn’t monitor President Trump’s phone calls?
Like I said, it’s just plain ridiculous how corrupt our government is.
Common sense tells you that Ebony tapped on Ivory so many times, he has a regular symphony of private information.
Forget this ‘constitutional’ crisis outcry…they threw out that great document long ago. And you can’t have a constitution if you don’t have a country. By using our intelligence agencies to attack our President and put the whole country in danger–Obama has committed the worse kind of treason.
In the real world, that’s what it’s called. But then again, as some nobody once said….
The REAL world seems to have left the building a long time ago.
Since Chuck Berry died yesterday, not too far from where I live, I thought it was a good time to tell my two little stories about Chuck, AND Tina Turner, because I ran into them both, even though it was so briefly, When you bump into a star, the star-dust never fades.
Chuck Berry was, an AMAZING man. It wasn’t just his guitar playing or singing, but the fact that he came onto the stage in America when it was thought that a black man couldn’t appeal to white folks. Chuck broke that barrier by writing songs that every teenager no matter what color they were, loved and wanted to dance to. He basically invented American guitar rock and roll.
All the famous musicians that held the stage after him all said, he was one of the reasons they bought a guitar and got into music. John Lennon, Keith Richards….so many of them, all learned at the knee of Berry.
Every band I was in, played Chuck Berry songs at one time or another…and I guess because I was working myself, I never went to see him play much, mostly because he played here a LOT in a little bar called Blueberry Hill, and you just couldn’t get in. I did see him there once, but the club was so small, and hot, it was hard to stand for more than an hour.
There was one thing about Chuck Berry I noticed right away…he adored being adored. He loved the stage. To put it plainly: He was a big ham.
I met him once at the airport here in St. Louis. My best friend Shelly, was flying back to California one afternoon, and I drove her to the airport. She had just gotten on the plane, a 747. In fact, everyone had gotten on that plane except one man. And that man, came across the empty seats, and sat RIGHT down next to me.
Of course, I thought, “So, Chuck Berry is holding up the whole plane because he’s coming over to flirt? LOL.” Yes, I knew him right away.
He did have a reputation as being a real ladies man, so I was a bit nervous. Nevertheless he WAS the great Chuck Berry, and I’m sure he had no idea that he was sitting next to one of the only girl drummers in St. Louis. I wanted to tell him that I too was a musician, but… I didn’t.
He sat down, looked at me with those big eyes and said. “Hi.”
I said, “Hi” back. And then I said, “Mr. Berry, thank you SO much for all the great music you have given us all.”
And he said, “You’re welcome.”
He was very polite. We talked a bit, about my friend on the plane, and why he was going to California, and then he left.
Okay. I could have said more. I missed my opportunity, but I had known many musicians that had played with him at one time or anther, because he would hire anyone. Nobody ever had to learn his songs, everybody knew them all by heart.
Now, to Tina. Tina Turner got her start here in St. Louis too. And I was there, standing right outside the door of the Imperial Club, when Tina got on stage to sing with Ike’s band.
I was just a kid, and I wasn’t allowed to go into the bar. I was there with my brother, who was there to give something to somebody, but I do remember, seeing this wild haired woman SCREAMING on stage and I thought she was…well…I thought she was damn crazy.
I said something to my brother who said, “That’s Tina Tuner, that’s just how she sings. She’s trying to get in Ike’s band.”
“Trying” is an understatement. Tina Turner was like a F5 tornado on stage.
I don’t know how long ago this video was made, but Tina looks a bit too calm here. I did see Tina years later with the Stones, and she had backup dancers and her dance routines alone made Mick Jagger look …boring. Yes, Tina Tuner blew Mick Jagger off the stage in my opinion.
Mick’s big lips just couldn’t compete with Tina’s big thighs.
Now, watch this video…Chuck forgets the words…and to stay in the spotlight he does all his Chuck Berry ‘moves.’ He just goes on and entertains…and that comes from playing bars every night of the week, six days a week, which is what Berry did. He gave his heart out every night and everyone loved him for it.
St. Louis gave the world two very great entertainers. Both were black, and I’ve NEVER heard a white person anywhere say one thing against either one of them. Never. Ever. Racists that we all are told we are.
Chuck Berry’s American spirits was felt all over the world. And probably somewhere tonight, Chuck’s spirit is whispering into some woman’s ear before he takes that final 747 to the sky….he’s saying, “My ding a ling…” No…just kidding. I’m just kidding. I hate that song.
Anyway…..Roll Over Beethoven. Make room for Chuck. We’re going to miss him.
Ahhh…the Irish. We love them. We love their parades and their tempers, and most of all, how drunk they get on St. Patty’s Day.
I played so many St. Patty’s Days in bars as a singer/band person, that now, you would have to PAY me to go out drinking on St. Patty’s Day.
I do miss giving the Irish drunks in the crowd the mike, to see who could sing “Danny Boy” the best. Nothing to me was more entertaining than watching drunks climb over their comatose friends on the floor, staggering with their beers spilling out onto the stage, as they smile and sing words they had NO clue as to the meaning of.
It’s almost as fun as watching Hillary Clinton stumble into a parked car.
One time, on St. Patty’s Day, I sang “Danny Boy” in a pub, and some really drunk Irish guy loved it. He stood right in front of me while I sang and swore that I was an angel from Killarny. And then at the end of the night, upon request, when I sang it again, he SWORE I botched it, and was about to throw his beer down and drag me clear to Dublin and throw me to his mother, who would have made me eat a rotten potato.
Luckily, I got out the back door.
That’s typical of the Irish. They start out loving the world, and then by the end of the night, they want to beat it up.
You gotta love em’.
Here in the Midwest, there are more drunks out on St. Patty’s Day than New Year’s Eve. Why? Because it’s a LOT cheaper to get drunk on St. Patty’s day. Has been for years.
Tomorrow, in lots of American cities, there will be parades and lasses in green dresses, and green beer and green popcorn, and corn beef, and on a lucky charm note, we know that CNN won’t dare complain about all these white people dancing around in green, because Obama is part Irish. Really. It’s true. On his mother’s side. (Someone tell Oprah.)
Today on the radio, I heard some bombastic ambassador of Ireland make a big speech about the ‘immigrants’ from Ireland and how when they first came to this country, they were treated like pigs. Trying to make the connection between the Irish and the Muslims.
I was about to say a few choice Irish words when I heard this, because there is no WAY you can compare an Irish American to a Muslim American. The Irish melted into our country just fine. So fine in fact, we celebrate them every year.
The moon will have to explode before Americans celebrate “Mohammed Day”. Can’t see it happening anytime soon.
This, “Irish” are like Muslims argument invites…..rather choice words like the ones spoken above. (I’m going to memorize a few of these.)
And by the way, in case you wondered, Amfortas is a very proper gentlemen of the English— descendant of Knights, (Who sometimes reads me) and he HATES the Irish, and from his point of view, he should.
So…Sorry my dear friend, Amfortas. This love of the Irish only happens in America.
Turn to your Bible, and forgive us…and realize, that we celebrate St. Patty’s Day only because–it’s simply too much fun.
Blame it on the state of our meaningless drunken affections. We’re just dancin’ away with the fairies, trolling in the lime, and waiting for St. Patty to clear out the snakes in Washington.
And dear amfortas….if you see St. Patty, tell him to hurry….the grass is almost green.
Yes…not many people know what I am about to tell you. If you have been wondering WHY President Donald J. Trump is pushing for Paul Ryan’s horrible Obamacare ‘repeal’ that is actually just a twist on the old one, then sit down. Really. Sit down.
I was laying down when I read this. Good thing too. Not much in my bed to throw but a few pillows.
Remember I told you that I actually READ Trump’s books? Yep. From his own mouth, or pen…or brain:
From Trump: The America We Deserve– page 206 and 207:
The healthcare bureaucrats are depriving Americans of care in order to keep costs down. Medical care is so expensive, in fact, that millions of Americans have no health insurance at all.
Working out the detailed plans will take time. But the goal should be clear: Our people are our greatest asset. We must take care of our own. We must have universal health care.
Sure, this was published 16 years ago, around the time Obama was hanging out with his buddy in the gay bars of Chicago. (Now he is hanging out in the gay islands of Fiji, no I’m not jealous, no…) but I really don’t think Trump has changed his mind on this. Think about it, he has always ONLY said,
“Obamacare is a disaster, we are going to repeal and REPLACE it.”
So, Obama was right. He mocked us all when he said that the Affordable Care Act was, and would remain, the LAW OF THE LAND.
Now, I know that some of you around the rest of the world love the universal health care that your country provides for you…but those of us here in the United States, who are old enough to remember….do remember that once upon a time America had not only the best, but the most affordable health care in the world, and we were hoping that repeal meant….going back to that wonderful system.
But no…it’s clear to this Nobody, that’s not going to happen.
Trump will never call it universal health care now. He’s not stupid. So, WHY is he doing this?
Here’s what goes on in my little nobody mind:
FIRST FACT: The Fortune 500 companies do NOT want to have to supply their employees with medical insurance. It’s a cost they’d rather have the government-run, like they do in the socialist countries.
SECOND FACT: President Trump needs those Fortune 500 companies to help him bring HIS big vision for America into fruition. And besides, he truly doesn’t want anybody to not get help when they are sick.
THIRD FACT: There are so many people NOT working in this country, that over 93 millions people who don’t have jobs, need something. Add to that the millions of illegals and ‘refugees’ who need care…you have a BIG problem.
FOURTH FACT: The government destroyed the fine system we had in the first place.
How? Presidents of both parties kept messing with it. And now, we are overwhelmed with MILLIONS of illegals who are sucking our system dry.
Why do we have so many illegals?
Globalization. Thank the Rockefeller Rinos’. Thank Daddy Bush. Thank his son.
Wait Joyanna! You didn’t blame the man who passed it in the FIRST place.
Well, here’s where my little Nobody mind Wonders…
Could it be, that the global men who run this world, decided that having a BLACK man pass universal health care would work? Remember, there was only ONE man who stood against it in Congress: Ted Cruz.
Strange, don’t you think? Where WERE all those little GOP ducks?
What if these men that run the global network of power in the world thought that the quickest way to get the United States on the global-no-borders-world government-platform, was to put someone in who could actually manage to get it through?
Obama came out of nowhere. As FDR said, nothing in politics is a coincidence.
So, as much as I truly am a big fan of our President, and I tell myself this system is now SO entrenched, and so many elites fighting against him, all he can really do is get rid of the tax…I still feel terrible. On THIS subject, we might be royally screwed. Unless of course, President Trump starts backing Rand Paul’s plans:
So, Mister President: Here’s a nobody suggestion—-
If you MUST have universal health care, than for the American people’s sake, do one more thing.
Write an executive order that says, whatever health care law Congress passes, THEY have to abide by it too. That way, they will have to write a good one.
I’d like to leave my pillows sitting lovely on my bed.
I’ve got a brand new computer, a brand new keyboard, a brand new book called “Windows 10 for Dummies” (over 8,459,34 pages) and like most new things, I’m going every other minute…WTF did I do?
For instance, I just found out that you can have two desktops, each with two different apps floating around the bottom, and the book said to put the weather app in one desktop and the mail app in the OTHER desktop. Cool. I did that. Not that I would EVER need two desktops, but then again, Bill Clinton didn’t really need Monica now did he?
Then it said to move the weather app from Desktop two, over to Desktop one, and it would be great. So, I tried it, and low and behold, the whole weather app disappeared.
Take about panic. My weather app is more accurate than the National Weather service, who said they truly knew last weekend that the blizzard petered out, but somebody in high power, decided to strand all those poor people in airports. Not their fault.
I’m sure, the order came from John McCain.
Thank god the weather app came back after I restarted the computer. When in doubt, just restart…unless of course you have some sinister John McCain operative trying to wreak your hard drive. I purposely blamed John McCain because today, I got over 20 calls from the same guy who, when I answered, just breathed heavily in Farsi.
As we ALL know, you cannot blame a Muslim for anything, least Allah comes down and decides to take your weather app.
So, now you know…I’m computer retarded, and I blame that on Thomas Edison, who thought memorizing things was stupid, and if you wanted to know something, you should just look it up. And that’s how he tortured his kids. He made THEM look up everything for him.
I can’t tell you how much I missed this past…how long was I gone? No matter.
John McCain needs to find a hobby, like, cleaning up those admirals who held big parties with prostitutes and….wasting the taxpayers money.
No doubt, he was there.
Can you tell I’ve been festering about McCain?
Okay. Enough. The good news is I’ll be trying to post, more, although I’m short on pictures…don’t ask. Long story.
Here’s the only one I have.
The bad news is this new keyboard feels like it needs to be oiled. It has buttons on it that evidently edit film, cook bacon, and bring you coffee.
I do have some opinions about Obamacare TWO rollout–tomorrow.
I must say, it’s good to be back.
My main computer has crashed.
Not sure when I will be back.
It is, what it is. It was a really good blog too that I was writing. I went to Youtube to get a video, and that was it. Some lady came on my screen and said that If I turned the computer OFF my hard drive would be destroyed.
She wasn’t lying.
I hope you check back here time to time…
In the meantime, I’m off to gather my senses.
Love to all,
Pretty cool this Handle robot. But Bill Gates says he should pay taxes.
Well then, you might ask yourself, why doesn’t Bill Gates computers pay taxes?
Just think, in the near future you could probably buy one of these “Handle’s” for $100,000 and scare your neighbors.
What I wanna know is…can it swim and cook?
And if it pays taxes, will it be allowed to vote?
I’m pretty excited about this…this year’s solar eclipse is going RIGHT by my house. And THEN, in just 7 more years, ANOTHER one will be going right by my house.
How lucky can you get?
So, IF you read that I have committed suicide within the next 7 years, –be rest assured and say to yourself, “She was MURDERED, by the deep state, because Joyanna would never have missed that second eclipse.
You ARE..my witness to that true statement.
I’m a big kid when it comes to these things. How about you?
