Health-care, Pharma Bro, UN, New Zealand Elections

 
Not content on failing with health care twice, republicans are trying a third time. Will it pass? Probably not. This bill is even worse. There is no coverage of pre existing conditions and the number of uninsured people goes up from the last bill. Rand Paul wants more cuts, so apparently won't vote for it. There are three people who are additionally unlikely to vote for it, basically the same as last time. This is a bill that doesn't require the filibuster because it's passed in the budget process

Now for a hilarious story I forgot to post last week. No, this is actually not about Orange Buffoon. Martin Shkreli the infamous Phama Bro was sent to jail after requesting a lock of Hillary Clinton's hair on Facebook. I feel like I am writing satire, but I am not, this story is real. He was out on bai but the judge sent him to jail after thinking the post was a threat. To me, this proves rich people aren't that bright, it's his own fault he's unnecessarily sitting in jail. I almost feel bad. No I don't, not at all.

Orange Buffoon went to the UN, made up the country Nambia which doesn't exists, called Kim Jon-Un rocket man and threatened North Korea. I don't have time for this shit. All I will say is if anybody is going to start a war it's Orange Buffoon and George W Bush also had nicknames for leaders like PuDePu for Putin. I am reminded of a joke. Great minds think alike, but idiots also think the same. Two republican presidents, two complete idiots.

New Zealand had an election, the outcome is not great for the left but also not a total disaster, in fact we may still win. It entirely depends on Winston Peters whether he will go left or right. Now he and the Greens hate each other over some petty fucking argument they had years ago. The question is whether they can put aside their differences. Many New Zealand First voters are no fans of National. There's a real chance he will go left. I am not sure what that means for the long term stability because the public mostly hate him. Then again if he does go right he'll probably fuck the government's chances in 2020. I don't know what he'll do. I have ideas that are in limbo until I know what the king maker decides. Of course I prefer left but I have some alternate plans to enact if we get the status quo. Act is also irrelevant either way, they won't be in the next government with any luck. Good riddance to the Maori Party, if you actually represented Maori perhaps I'll be sad, you can fuck off! The Opportunities Party did not get in, absolutely no surprise to anyone that can read polls without going into some delusional conspiracy theory. Actually last thing, the polling was in fact off but surprisingly had a left-wing bias instead of a right-wing bias as the landline conspiracy lunatics would have you believe. At one point close to the election Labour was polling 42-44%, they got 36%, maybe 37% after special votes. This is a massive swing in a week or two. Two conclusions. People should shut the fuck up about polling favouring the right wing, the numbers very clearly state the opposite. Secondly we can't take too much stock in polls, although they were all over the show near the end. You can only look for the trends, percentage wise they don't appear to be accurate weeks out. The last people who should shut the fuck up are the people who say don't worry about votes early on, they're rural and Labour will increase, didn't happen! I have the data points to prove it, and I casually observed the same thing in a previous election. There's absolutely no truth to this assertion. Finally (really this time) if you're a complete moron you would take me seriously when I say shut the fuck up. Don't take my ranting too seriously, I exaggerate my feelings for comedic purposes. Don't get me wrong, you're still incorrect if you're looking at the numbers but maybe you should focus on other things instead of outright false assumptions, OK? Good!

Dreamers

 
The latest drama with Buffoon Of Our Lives is he threatened to deport "dreamers" who are basically people that are undocumented immigrants but have lived in the US since they were very young. Then he didn't after a meeting with leaders from the Democrate side, Then they said a deal was made with the President. Then the President said no deal was made. The reality? He's a complete idiot with no clue what he's doing. There was a story out in which it says he listens to the last person in the room, this is completely consistent with this. The bottom line, this is a side show; it was always about making a deal with the Democrates and the business community is not going to allow a source of cheap labour to be deported. It's noteworthy that he wants to deal with the Democrates with his party can govern alone; but of course some Republicans don't want to govern and want to destroy the government. Obviously go further enough right your ideas are so unpopular you turn toxic and dysfunctional, I believe that I have said this before.

I prefer Days Of Our Lives, Friday's show ended with Wil coming back from the dead. Hell I'm not sure which is more ridiculous; DAYS or the fact Orange Buffoon is president.

Hllary Clinton, disasters

 
Hillary Clinton released a new book titled What happened? Well you lost to what should have been the easiest candidate to beat ever. That's what happened. Of course she blames Bernie and Russia etc blah blah blah. She claims her aides were making her pander to progressives and told her not to alienate them. First she didn't do a very good job. Second, yeah Hillary in order to win elections you need your side to vote for you. Your aides were right. If you were a little more convincing instead of going after Republicans (who by the way have hated you for years, really smart strategy that) perhaps you would have been president. Instead I'm reporting on how much of a moron Orange Buffoon is. Thank you Hillary, thank you very much! Now take your millions of dollars, and go hide in a cave. (or probably a mansion)

Two more disasters happened or are about to an earthquake in Mexico and hurricane Irma. They should name a hurricane after the president just to see his reaction. Harvey hit Texas and oil refineries, Irma will hit America's retirement village: Florida and old people watch the climate change denying channel Fox News. There is a sad irony to this, and it is important not to take glee in people's houses possibly being destroyed, not even Rush Limbaugh's right after he called Hurricanes hoaxes. I have nothing more to add as I commented on this last week. I'll just say this his is sadly ironic and urgent action needs to be taken.

Trans in military, Hurricane Harvey

 
Orange Buffoon banned trans people from the military. About a month ago he announced it via Twitter without any process behind it. A few weeks later he signed an executive order making it official. There's no schedule for removing existing trans people but it will probably be done. Buffoon cited health care costs as the reason but the military spends three times more on Viagra. Also we have covered that the Pentagon wastes tens of billions per year, they can't even account for some of the money. Orange Buffoon is simply being horrible, there is no valid reason to do this. Additionally it costs $96,000 to train and recruit a new soldier, there is 10,000 trans people in the army, do the math on that. Finally when he was called to fight in Vietnam he didn't go and went to sex parties instead, he called getting STDs his own personal Vietnam, he has absolutely no creditability when It comes to who is serving.

Hurricane Harvey has practically destroyed parts of Texas. The scenes there have been not been pretty, at least 15 people died, entire communities destroyed. I knew instinctively that sending the president to the area was a very bad idea, he did his usual buffoonish thing. Progressives are talking about climate change. The time for action on that was 20 years ago. However while future actions will not prevent the probable countless devastating storms coming it will stop a bad situation from becoming even worse. The world needs to take action on this. Luckily most of the world are not climate change deniers like the US Republicans and are taking this seriously. However we need to consider climate change a current threat and be concerned about what comes next. Probably best to move to the middle of the land unless the area get things like tornadoes or earthquakes.

The absurdity of the Afghanistan war

 
The US is putting more troops in Afghanistan, 15,000 in total. At one time there was over 100,000. If they can't win with that, why would they be able to win with a fraction of that? The Afghanistan war is a lost cause, they should abort and should have aborted a decade ago. I worked out the Afghanistan war has been going on half my life. 16 years. You know what they say 17th years the charm. The best solution would be to work with the Taliban to stabilized the country; trying to defeat them hasn't worked. Actually I heard an amazing story this week that the Taliban did actually surrender in 2001 but the Bush Administration was too incompetent to register it. The surrender ceased when the US wouldn't stop attacking. This sounded unbelievable, until I remembered that they had Osama Bin Laden cornered in 2001 but Donald Rumsfield didn't send in the troops and he got away. If all this is true you are right to question whether this utter incompetence was deliberate or whether the Bush Administration had shit for brains. Remember also that George W Bush was also warned about a possible terrorist attack several months before 9/11 on vacation and told the people to go home. When right wingers get involved in foreign policy, they tend to fuck it up. To an extent this also includes Obama, but at least he was competent enough to get Bin Laden. I personally just generally assume people in power are incompetent at their job. Really, is there any clearer proof than the US election last year? In conclusion I regret not buying stocks in defense contractors after the election, the war machine rolls on.

Nazis, Steve Bannon

 
So Orange Buffoon can't adequately call out neo nazis and white supremacists. Everyone else is outraged; that's not interesting. At the beginning of the presidency I said that I believe that he had a self destructive trait in his personally. Nothing has proven me wrong. The obsession he has with calling both sides even is part of his self destructive personality. Any competent person and someone who isn't self destructive would have no problem adequately calling out white supremacists and neo nazis. It's a problem for him because he's both incompetent and self destructive. Yes it's true that the now fired Steve Bannon may have had a hand in his response, but the fact is Buffoon could not do the absolute minimum the situation required; this shows utter incompetence.

Bannon has been fired from the whitehouse; finally some good news. Steve recently did an interview where he claimed to be in charged. I don't know if he was fired because of that, or the obvious fact that he was a horrible strategist that lead the administration down a shit hole. Whatever the reason; this is good news. The question is if a new strategist can turn this administration around. I am firmly in the no camp. Again Buffoon seems entirely self destructive. With the Russia investigation and now probable trolling from Bannon's deplorable propaganda outlet, this will not get better. He openly fights with morning TV show hosts, he will probably do the same with Bannon. If a fire requires water to be put out he's there pouring petrol all over it. He has no ability to defuse situations; he only makes them worse.

With Bannon gone Buffoon really has very limited friends. The people who work for him don't respect him and are constantly leaking how incompetent he is. He has fucked off both the Senate and House leaders, the Attorney General and probably countless others. Business leaders are fleeing; the manufacturing council and strategic policy forum both have shut down. Once you lose rich people and the establishment, you're on borrowed time. Especially if you're not popular. I said from the beginning that he will be impeached or resign. The ducks are almost in a row.

North Korea, Charlottesville

 
Orange Buffoon threatened North Korea with "Fire and fury like the world has never seen". Everybody has blown this out of proportion. Let me explain. North Korea has a history of empty threats. When they threaten places like Guam we shouldn't take them seriously; other presidents didn't and nothing happened. They do this to make noise and for their own propaganda purposes. I have maintained from the beginning that they are very unlikely to attack, hopefully they know if they do it will be game over for the government. The difference today is we should probably ignore the US president too. EVERYTHING WITH THE PRESIDENT HAS TO BE THE BIGGEST EVER! He has size issues, we get it. Taking him at face value is a mistake. He talks shit the majority of the time. Other more rational people at the whitehouse (as rational as right wingers can be) say there is no threat and they are not going in. Unless this changes there is no need to panic.

Charlottesville, tragedy occurred out of a confederate statue removal protest. A helicopter crash, very unfortunate. One piece of violence that happened and was no accident was a radical right winger trying to run over counter protesters. Violence for a political or ideological cause has a name: terrorism. Most groups have their fundamentalists and moderates, not just muslims. I don't want to dwell on this point, I am sure other pundits are not shutting up about this. All I will stress is that it is important to try and encourage moderation in religious ideologies no matter if it is Muslim, Christian, or something else. You don't encourage moderation by calling them all terrorists, or calling them stupid. If you still do this; you are part of the problem.

The Confederation wanted to keep slavery. If you are claiming heritage for the reasons to keep the statutes up please know what your heritage is. There is a case to made for ignorance. African Americans simply don't want statutes of people up that were hell bent on keeping their race as slaves. This is really what this issue boils down to. If you really feel strongly about either side a sensible course of action would be petitioning the government. If you truly live in a democracy, the majority should rule. Personally I am not a fan of tradition for tradition sake (actually I really have no time for people that think tradition should dictate our lives, assess ideas on merit) so therefore I would probably side with African Americans.

Buffoon, Diana

 
Buffoon Of Our Lives update
Shaun Spicer OUT after objecting to Buffoon hiring Anthony Scaramucci
Anthony Scaramucci is IN, WRONG GONE! He only lasted ten days. Only purpose appeared to fire Ryan Prebis.
Ryan Prebis, obviously is gone. He was the Chief Of Staff. He was replaced by a General. Ryan came from the RNC and was seen as an more establishment figure.
Scaramucci was the shortest serving Communication Director in history. There's speculation that Buffoon thought he was stealing the limelight and that is why he was fired. However Scaramucci also said "I am not like Steve Bannon, I don't try to suck my own cock" I suspect saying that about a top adviser to Buffoon was a mistake. Scaramucci was also critical of Buffoon in now deleted tweets. Whoever was behind the firing wouldn't have had a tough time convincing Orange Buffoon to do it.

Meanwhile a Grand Jury has been established for the Buffoon/Russia investigation. This means that it isn't going away anytime soon and they can uncover more evidence with this procedure. They have hired a lawyer that specializes in money laundering, bribery and corruption. You don't leave your well paid private sector job for something irrelevant. Tick tock, tick tock.

Buffoon's approval is now down to 33%, perfect time to go on a 17 day vacation. What's the difference? He isn't accomplishing much on the job anyway. According to a magazine he called the Whitehouse a dump. Sounds like he doesn't want to be president, lucky for him he probably will be removed from office eventually.

It is so bad that psychologists have lifted their own gag rule which prevented psychologists from commenting on people that they haven't examined. The fact that Orange Buffoon may have a personality disorder isn't revolutionary information but it is quite telling that psychologists feel so strongly they modified their own ethics rules.

There was a news alert on TV2 about Princess Diana's love life. What the fuck? Firstly she has been dead for 20 years. This is not news! It reminds me of a headline on CNN "Breaking news: The Titanic sunk 100 years ago today". I don't care about Diana's love life. I can think of nothing that is less relevant. I hate stories about Diana, it was the three years of constant coverage after her death that will forever haunt me. I was young, I didn't know her. It was just 3 years of the media going on about someone I had no interest in, and still have no interest in. Are people really interested in her love life at this point? Does it really deserve a TV news alert? There seems to be a resurgence of stories about her. When will it end? Seriously, I'm asking! Some want her to be left alone; she was harassed by the media during her life. Nothing has changed. The media needs to stop its unhealthy obsession with this woman. I really don't think she would want to be used for ratings and to sell papers. Either way, Diana is long gone, there doesn't need to be another news story about her, ever. Yes, I am triggered by stories of Diana. The outright excessive media coverage when she died will forever haunt me and probably has something to do with why I can't stand news media.

Health-care, Linkin Park

 
I avoided talking about health care updates because I just need assumed the bill would die. The bill is now dead. How brilliant am I? With the Democrates shift to the right this allowed the Republicans to be populated by fringe right wingers. Their ideas are unpopular and incompatible with the moderates in swing states. They're pretty much the headless chicken party; flapping around accomplishing nothing. The Koch Brothers are also to blame for funding the Tea Party in 2010. They may be able to pass tax reform but much else.

Chester Bennington is dead at 41. I am just covering this because Linkin Park were my favourite rock band, particularly their earlier stuff. 41 is too young to die. He took his own life, I don't know if I have already said this but famous people could do with mental health treatment rather than yes men. This is the reason I say being famous can decrease your life span. I am grateful to have seen Linkin Park in 2013, I do regret being preoccupied with trying to keep my ex. This is also why I say see singers while you can. You never know when they might go. He had some other problems such as child abuse and substance abuse. Fame didn't help at the end of the day. You can be a famous rock star, but in the end it doesn't even matter.

Eric met with foreigners regarding the campaign

 
So it turns out Eric Buffoon met with someone associated with Russia to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. I don't care what you're personal feelings are, the fact is this is illegal. I don't care about right wingers; I expect them to live in lala land. I have said before that there are a bunch of left wingers that claim that there's nothing to the russia story including people I frequently watch. It is getting to the point of denialism at this point. The mental gymnastics are becoming absurd. Here's an idea: If you don't want to talk about Russia, don't talk about russia. Left-wing russia gate truthers are sounding like republicans. Apparently most people have particular issues that they go crazy on.

The meeting was illegal, foreign entities are not allowed to give anything of value to the campaign. The fact that nothing was given is not relevant legally. Sting operations work for this reason. If he showed intent; he can theoretically be prosecuted. Saying "I love it" in response to someone saying they have damaging information on Hillary Clinton shows intent. I say theoretically be prosecuted because his father is the president. The entire Buffoon ship would need to sink before that happens, could be possible though!

People are calling Eric the equivalent of the Godfather's stupid son that brings everything down. I have a problem with this. I don't think there's a stupid son in comparison to Buffoon Senior; there may be a slightly more stupid son. Orange Buffoon is a low bar for intelligence. A little person couldn't limbo under it. Einstein said stupidity was infinite, he's probably right.
