Comment on obamacare….

*

“Let me get this straight. We were “gifted” with a health care plan we were forced to purchase and “taxed” if we didn’t, written by a committee whose chairman said he didn’t understand it, declared deficit neutral by a CBO that only underestimated SS and Medicare costs by about 100 trillion dollars, give or take a few trillion, passed by a Congress that never read it but exempted themselves from it, gaveled into law by a Speaker who stated “we have to pass the damn thing to find out what’s in it”, signed into law by a President who smoked, supported by a first diet guru with a derriere the size of a battleship beam, exclaimed to be a big friggin deal by a sleepy VP with Attention Deficit Disorder and a really bad plug job, considered to be such a great plan by the unions that hundreds of them supported it, then promptly applied for and were granted exemptions from it, enforced by an Attorney General with a terrible case of amnesia, policed by 16,000 new IRS agents who were “here to help you”, with funding administered by a Treasury Secretary who “forgot” to pay his taxes, overseen by a Surgeon General who’s obese, and financed by a country that’s broke. What could have possibly gone wrong?”

(This is an opinion about obamacare…composed by someone signed on as madashe11. Yes indeed….I think this pretty much sums it up.)

Walters over the dam

Image result for barbara walters cartoons

 

Barbara Walters, on one of her 20/20 broadcasts, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan several years before the Afghan conflict.  She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.

The ultra-liberal Ms. Walters, seeking proof the Afghani women were repressed, approached one of the Afghani women and asked, ‘Why do you now seem content with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?’

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, “Land mines.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Road to Mars

Explanation: What’s that light at the end of the road? Mars. This is a good month to point out Mars to your friends and family because our neighboring planet will not only be its brightest in 15 years, it will be visible for much of night. During this month, Mars will be about 180 degrees around from the Sun, and near the closest it ever gets to planet Earth. In terms of orbits, Mars is also nearing the closest point to the Sun in its elliptical orbit, just as Earth moves nearly between it and the Sun — an alignment known as perihelic opposition. In terms of viewing, orange Mars will rise in the east just as the Sun sets in the west, on the opposite side of the sky. Mars will climb in the sky during the night, reach its highest near midnight, and then set in the west just as the Sun begins to rise in the east. The red planet was captured setting beyond a stretch of road in Arches National Park in mid-May near Moab, Utah, USA.

Turbulence and a Cowboy

Image result for pic of a sexy cowboy

A plane passed through a severe storm. The turbulence was awful, and things went from bad to worse when one wing was struck by lightning.

One woman lost it completely. She stood up in the front of the plane and screamed, ‘I’m too young to die!’  Then she yelled, ‘If I’m going to die, I want my last minutes on earth to be memorable! Is there anyone on this plane who can make me feel like a WOMAN?’

For a moment, there was silence. Everyone stared at the desperate woman in the front of the plane. 

Then the cowboy from Texas stood up in the rear of the plane.

He was handsome, tall, well built, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes. Slowly, he started to walk up the aisle, unbuttoning his shirt as he went, one button at a time. No one moved. He removed his shirt. Muscles rippled across his chest.

She gasped…

Then, he spoke…

‘Iron this — and then get me a beer.’
