politics


Yesterday, mominbox’s phone rang.  I handed the unit to her and heard a couple of words seemingly like request for money.  Mominbox was trying to protest that she didn’t give donations on the phone and I put out my hand towards the phone.  Mominbox noted the gesture and said that the caller was to speak with me.  (Ahem…) Good evening, how can I help?  The female voice on the other end started reading the script of how the Republican National Committee was a big supporter of President Trump and they were wanting $100 donation to help with their efforts of outreach.  I reached into my hat and pulled out “abortion”.  “Umm, why should I send money to a group who takes my money and supports abortion?”  The caller tried to say there was a difference between the legislative efforts and their need to get my money to encourage younger voters to vote Republican.  I persisted.   You want me to support a group who has taken my money and given it to an agency known to murder babies and sell their body parts against the law.  The caller tried to finish reading her script in the middle of which I posited that this phone number was to be placed on the “do not call” list.  I got no assurance that would be done, but was smiling when the phone clicked.

Please join me.  Other issues I could have used would be immigration, TSA, Obammacare, horrific rules applied to military, lack of a budget, etc.  In other words, the field is wide open.

Former Hillary Clinton Employee Arrested On Treason Charges

There are a couple notable examples from the Vietnam era who should have been tried and executed, but one became a presidential candidate and the other made movies.

Building a house the old fashioned way.

I wish I could argue that this guy is wrong.

This is one for the strong stomachs and a bit of fuel to spur anger towards the congress critters who keep removing our money and giving to this monster.

I wish the bulk of the judiciary behaved in this fashion.  We should have more advocates for criminals silenced when they behave stupidly.  For those who want to argue that he was a defense attorney and the criminal needed defense, let me ask the following – wasn’t the trial the location where the truth was to be presented and justice administered accordingly?  It never was to be a location for the most practiced lawyers to have felons escape justice.  That desire for truth is now missing.

There is a reason.

There is also a reason I read blogs and avoid the idiot box propaganda news.  This is just one example.  There are more out there than I would wish to consider, or waste my time trying to find.

Dear sir: Thank you for your reply.  There is an absence in it I noted.  No where did I detect any desire to remove government control on healthcare.  That is what I am asking.  The origin of health care insurance was government price controls on labor and the market looked to find another way to attract and reward good labor.  That is the origin of insurance in healthcare.  Government interference was the impetus.  More or different government interference won’t fix it.  Better programs aren’t the answer.  Freedom combined with responsibility is.  Reign in the trial lawyers and make people responsible for their own health care decisions.  When people have to pay for what they get, the market changes.  People receiving something paid for by someone else is socialism and a detriment to decent society.  This includes welfare, but that is a topic for another letter.

At this point, I reiterate the topic of my original letter.  I am seeking the removal of obammacare, not it’s replacement.  I am asking for government out of healthcare, not simply changed strings on we marionettes.  I know it’s an uphill battle as it requires government to actually give up power to the people and government is loathe to do so.  I also note that those elected officials know we the people desire removal of obammacare as there were several votes last year – during the election – with that as the topic.  Interesting that now we have a president who will sign such a bill and none has been presented.  Those actions are screaming louder than anything I could ever write. The Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites who present bills in an election year in accord with the desires of the voters who are subsequently ignored after the election.  Again: government out of healthcare.  Period.

I contacted my representative using the form supplied on their website and submitted the following:

It has come to my attention that there is a simply worded bill presented in committee to do the job we have been wanting done.  It says to stop obammacare and return to what existed prior to that time.  Simple.  Effective.  I am requesting you, as my representative, support this bill.  I am aware of several bills being passed last year.  I believe the number was about 7.  They were show votes as the previous president was not going to sign such a piece of legislation.  Now we have a president who would sign and it’s time to send him a bill.  I have read this bill and fully support it.  I am asking others to contact their representatives as well.  The Republican presence was increased in the past elections for exactly this purpose.  We want intrusive government out of our lives.  We don’t want a substituted intrusion.  To illustrate: I don’t want to excise stomach cancer and replace it with liver cancer.  If a house is on fire, you extinguish the fire, you don’t replace the fire.  Thank you

Please contact your representative.  Use the zipcode box in the upper right corner.  There will be a couple of picture identify boxes to prove you have a pulse.

Get ahold of your congress critters now.  Now.  NOW!!!

There is finally a bill in committee to repeal obammacare.  It will be soon apparent who was on the repeal bandwagon for only votes.

Here’s one possibility:

Dear sir:

Last year, there were several votes to repeal obammacare.  They were show votes as there was not a chance that the president at that time would sign the bill.  Now there is.  A bill is now presented in committee by Rep Mo Brooks that contains the reason you have been sent to Washington as our representative.  It states to repeal obammacare plain and simple.  That’s what we want.   That is why we increased the Republican representation – to stop this atrocity on the American people.  I am counting on your assistance in moving this piece of legislation forward to remove this anchor.  Thank you.
