White House Surrenders! Victory Declared!

29 Oct
We Surrender - Home | Facebook

It’s Over! Hurrah! The Covid-19 Virus has been defeated even though our government has just announced that “We will not try to control the pandemic!”

From now on we will just treat it like the common ordinary flu with vaccines and medicines and getting better. So there!

Even though the Coronavirus has felled almost 230,000 citizens in 8 months and is 10 times more deadly than the common, ordinary flu virus it can’t win if we just ignore it…

You know, like we do with the common, everyday, ordinary flu! So what if it kills 36,000 Americans each year? Who cares? Do you know any of those 36,000?…probably not. And so what if this new virus kills 360,000 per year? Do you know any of those people either?

“Just get over it!” Says our President! “Don’t let it dominate you!” “It’s all just a big media hoax.”

If we stop testing it, it can’t pass the test now can it? And we won’t have so many cases then will we? And if you do get it and die from it because you were too fat or too asthmatic or too old or too poor or whatever… then that was the real killer wasn’t it? And it really was all your fault wasn’t it?

So stop complaining and take better care of yourself!

Let’s all just ignore it and stop being so frightened and simply declare victory! How can the virus win if we win first?! We can’t both win can we? So there! Take that Coronavirus!

And today The White House science office (when did the White House get a science office?) listed “ending the COVID-19 pandemic” as the top accomplishment of  President Trump’s first term. His TOP accomplishment!…Which he just accomplished! Wow!

And today was also the day when the U.S. set a record for new daily infections! Talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat! Way to go White House Science Department!

Who knew that surrender could lead to such sweet, wonderful victory!?

I mean who knew that victory could lead to such sweet wonderful surrender?

I don’t know what I mean but someone does…

Our very own stable genius, That’s who!

And according to Presidential Advisor, Jared Kushner, President Trump has been “getting the country back from the doctors” in what he called a “negotiated settlement.”

It was such a simple minded idea that it was simply, absolutely brilliant!

We negotiated a settlement with the doctors who agreed to stand down from their all out assault on the American public’s freedom, while our President (AKA The “great negotiator” BTW) stepped in and made peace with the deadly virus by declaring it an enemy that he no longer recognizes.

So it’s all over now folks…Huzzah! (except for The Dying)

Nothing to do from now on but the shopping and the playing and the school going and the work doing and the stock marketing and well, you know…(The Dying)

so just do me a favor will ya?

Don’t die!

And if by chance you do…keep it to yourself… okay?

Why spoil such a good plan?

You’re Welcome!

Hang ‘Em High!

The Salem Witch Trials Targeted Women - Here's Why | Science 2.0

Is this your kind of Democracy? If it is then you should be ashamed of yourself.

Last week President Trump held another rally in Michigan where he downplayed the recent rightwing plot against Governor Gretchen Whitmer to have her kidnapped and killed because of her state lockdown measures aimed at curtailing the coronavirus and saving lives in the state where people are still dying from the poisoned water for profit scheme! (Do Republicans remember that?)

Said our President: “You’ve got to get your governor to open up your state, OK? And get your schools open! Get your schools open! The schools have to be open, right?”  

“Lock her up! Lock her up!” his supporters chanted in response. 

“Lock them all up,” President Trump answered.

And of course his crowd of angry, (P)syco-phantic inquisitors who adore our President as if he were the reincarnated Torquemada made whole in the 21st century, just so they could lasciviously witness the torture and imprisonment of all who disagree, look differently or believe differently than they do, cheered him on.

And yet just Forty minutes later President Trump’s Saturday night rally ended with The President (a most recent survivor of the coronavirus who contracted the disease along with his family and many friends through ALL fault of his own) once again railing against Michigan’s lockdown measures and sparking the crowd to resume the “lock her up” chants…

AS THOUGH THEY WERE ALL PART OF SOME GRAND REENACTMENT OF THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS…A FONDLY REMEMBERED PASSION PLAY OF PSYCHO-SEXUAL JOY BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE!

Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, senior campaign adviser, and woman who doesn’t seem to mind other women being treated like second class citizens later said “He wasn’t doing anything, I don’t think, to provoke people to threaten this woman at all. He was having fun at a Trump rally,” and added “Look, the president was at a rally. It’s a fun, light atmosphere. Of course, he wasn’t doing anything to threaten this woman. That’s ridiculous.”

Sure…it was just all in good fun. What’s more fun than accusing your rivals and competitors and fellow elected officials, Americans all, of being criminals who should be locked up just on your say so, without evidence of a crime or of any wrongdoing whatsoever?

Kamala Harris is nasty! Lock her up! Hillary wrote emails, the contents of which we actually no nothing about! Lock her up! That woman is not someone that I find attractive enough to consider dating. Lock her up! I believe that woman is not a Christian! Lock her up!

That’s America? If that is your idea of America then you should leave because the country you’re pining for is the country(s) that our founding fathers fled from 400 years ago!

You have forgotten what this country stands for and represents to the world…and so has our president. Shame on all who attend rallies that celebrate fear, hate and greed! That is not what greatness is made of… nor has it ever represented nor will it ever represent the power and glory of anything good that ever resided in Heaven or on the Earth…

Don’t Fear the Reaper?

Eczema and Health Insurance | Help with Eczema Prescription Costs

Isn’t it ironic that as our President of the United States is recovering from his recent bought with the Coronavirus at the White House in Washington D.C. receiving the best treatment for his illness that is humanly available to him, his most recent Supreme Court nominee is waiting to be approved and sworn in by a completely partisan Republican Senate majority in their latest best effort to completely destroy and eliminate the Affordable Care Act from U.S. Law?

Make no mistake about it. Judge Amy Coney Barrett has been nominated for the Supreme Court of the United States because President Trump and Senate republicans are 100% sure that she will vote to overturn the Roe v. Wade decision on abortion rights, eliminate LGBT rights and same sex marriage and declare the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional and thereby eliminate the healthcare access that had been made available to millions of Americans in 2010.

They are in a hurry to have Judge Barrett confirmed because, should President Trump and the republicans win or lose the election, come November 3rd of this year, all of their dreams to take away the hard earned rights of “UnGodly Americans” can still come true.

While they continue to enjoy tax payer funded healthcare of their own: The absolute best access to doctors and drugs that our tax payer money has to offer.

Meanwhile, The President says that we, the people, should not fear Covid-19, better known as the coronavirus. In fact he suggests that we get it, like he did, and then get over it, like he is doing. “Don’t let it dominate you!” Says our President. “Don’t be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it. We have the best medical equipment. We have the best medicines, all developed recently,.”

That is if you are still eligible for that wonderful medical care after his new Supreme Court Justice helps to take it away come this November… following the election…of course! Why would he do it before the election? Duh.

But not to worry. Don’t fear the reaper! If you are lucky like our septuagenarian president you might feel better than ever after you’ve had the virus! You might even feel 20 years younger like he says he does now… Or there is a small chance that you may suffer from an insignificant…death!

So far only 218,000 Americans or about 1,000 Americans a day since March of this year have had the adverse reaction to Covid-19…as in an untimely death. Insignificant is the President’s word, not mine because that is what he called those deaths during one of his presidential pep rallies. That sure got his adoring crowd laughing and applauding.

And when he brought out a color coded chart to explain that if we didn’t count the “blue” states (we have red and blue states now) then hardly anyone has died from the Coronavirus! I guess, because people who live in blue states are extra insignificant? Even the Republicans too!? (those would be the red people living in the blue states)

I guess that if you didn’t vote for President Trump and/or you live in a state that didn’t give him the Electoral College votes he wanted in the last election then you can just die and go to hell…and apparently take everyone else who lives in that state along with you. (He’s an equal opportunity hater?)

But If the President is reelected and serves another 4 years, at 365,000 Coronavirus deaths per year, that would only be 1,825,000 Americans felled by the virus… and that would only be .5 percent of the 330 million Americans that we now have which is about as insignificant as the interest I get from the bank for the money I keep there.

So as far as Capitalism is concerned I guess we have to admit that we really don’t matter very much to our president and to our government since money rules and helping people drools…and as always the rich will get richer while the poor get sicker.

So I guess we should all just pretend that the Coronavirus is cancer or heart disease or obesity or whatever and go out there and live our lives with or without our masks. Maybe we’ll die from the virus…maybe we won’t, but it’s now 3rd on the list of things that kill us American’s the most…and you will die eventually anyway… so WTF?

And that’s the official policy of Our President, The White House and our United States’ government…not just something I’m making up…and if you’re waiting for a vaccine you might just want to move to a Red state and become a Republican (if you aren’t already in one or already are one) and get your instant immunity, and “heard mentality”…and don’t worry Democrats, I hear it rubs off on blue people too!

May God help us, Everyone!

Another Royal Scam

Big Pharma is Restructuring: 3 Key Causes

After unilaterally terminating Social Security’s dedicated funding for government workers for the rest of the year, President Trump is now raiding Medicare’s trust fund to pay to send letters to senior citizens before the election, promising them a $200 pharmacy gift card.

The President campaigned in 2016 on the promise that he would take on Big Pharma and protect Social Security and Medicare, but he has done neither of those two things. Rather he has done exactly the opposite while still claiming to keep his promises.

The President’s plan to send out $200 senior drug discount cards to 33 million senior citizens in the United States will cost tax payers (Not the President or his campaign) 6.6 billion dollars. And all of that money will come from the Medicare Trust Fund…which of course is money that you and your employers have already put there… on your behalf…for you.

That’s strike two for those of us who are already retired or who are about to retire. Billions of dollars are now being removed from the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds by our President and without the proper Congressional authorization needed to do so.

Medicare’s main trust fund, the Hospital Insurance fund, also known as Part A of Medicare – was already in financial trouble before the pandemic hit and the ongoing recession created by the Covid-19 crisis is squeezing the program from both ends.

And a recent projection from James Capretta, a senior advisor at the Bipartisan Policy Center and a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, found that the program could run low on funds by 2023. “So the next president, says Mr. Capretta, will have about two years to figure out what to do.”

And our President has promised to continue these economic programs (or is it economic pogroms?) should he be reelected this November, but of course, even if he loses, you can count on the remaining Republicans in Congress claiming that our now diminished trust funds are two more reasons for privatizing and ending Social Security and Medicare.

So instead of taking on the big pharmaceutical companies and skyrocketing medical costs in an effort to lower the costs of medications and hospitalizations in the U.S., President Trump is raiding Medicare and Social Security and taking our money to use for his own political purposes, in the hopes that neither you nor I nor anyone else will know the difference.

And he is also about to break a famous Republican promise by nominating and confirming a Supreme Court Justice during an election year (In 2016 The Republicans promised never to let this happen)…(ever!) And that Supreme Court Justice will join 5 others who will most likely strike down The Affordable Care Act (after the election…of course) leaving no Healthcare program to take its place.

Using public promises and public trust funds to fund private campaigns and private desires while undermining decades old and revered social health, medical and anti-poverty programs to the point of destruction? That is definitely not Socialism. That’s for sure.

I would call it Anti-Socialism…wouldn’t you?

And outright lying, cheating and stealing comes to mind too.
