HEALTH CARE-LESS

 

For Tubularsock the ONLY way to go with national health care is the Single-Payer but that won’t happen so the next best thing is Medicare-For-All which is better at cutting costs.

But BETTER YET is to duplicate the exact health plan that Congress has created for itself and use THAT PLAN as our National Health Plan!

Or another way of putting this is that the National Health Plan that is created by Congress would be the SAME health care plan that Congress would HAVE TO adopt for itself.

Pretty simple, right?

But remember BOTH parties get huge sums from pharmaceutical companies and that will remain in play no matter which party “wins”.

And Democraps are not any less susceptible to prostituting themselves for a buck than the Republican’ts.

Obamacare was a compromise which was based to a large extent on Mitt Romney ideas in the Massachusetts State health care plan.

The idea was that you brought everyone into the market and forced insurers to compete for their business by offering higher-quality plans at lower costs, not by separating the healthy from the unwell.

But the Mitch McConnell and John Boehner Republicans decided to turn a complete about-face on ideas they had once supported in order unite against Obama’s plan!

And on top of that ——-They had no viable plan themselves!

As a result a group of GOP Senators voted for a resolution calling the individual mandate unconstitutional.

Fast forward to today.

What you see is the Republican Party driving legislative and judicial efforts to gut protections for people with preexisting conditions that are now the law of the land under Obamacare.

However you see the Republican Party running ads saying that they are committed to protecting people with preexisting conditions.

Say what?

The very Republican officials that are suing to negate preexisting conditions protections are the same Republican officials that are running ads saying that they are COMMITTED to protect preexisting conditions.

Tubularsock would venture to guess that that falls under the definition of LYING.

 

And who is the BESTEST Lier in our Nation?
None other than our Lier In Chief:

Now really, would you expect any less from the Shit-For-Brains-Dump?

Kavanaugh Ethics Scam

Well Tubularsock knows that some of you out there have had to interview for a job sometime in your current life. Right?

And doing that, depending on the position you were attempting to acquire, you had to provide information about your past work experience and perhaps some letters of recommendation showing your past achievements, experience, and character.

And once that was completed you were interviewed and had either been hired or not depending on how well you fit the job culture you wished to enter.

Of course, that was determined by the hiring team and/or boss considering your qualifications.

Pretty common stuff.

How often were you ever hired to do the job AND THEN AFTER you were hired and working at the job, your boss THEN decided to review your past ethics complaints?

You see in normal cases that would have been done BEFORE you got the job.

Well then, you just picked the wrong job!

You see, if you would had gone for being a Justice on the Supreme Court then you would have gotten the job AND THEN your ETHICS would then be looked into by your boss.

Sure it is ass backwards but we are talking government service here NOT A REAL JOB!

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. has, according to a letter made public, has stated that he has been asked by the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit to transfer at least 15 ethics complaints against Kavanaugh to the 10th Circuit, which is based in Denver and covers six states in the western United States.

To transfer complaints to another circuit is how federal courts in recent years have dealt with high-profile ethics cases.

Judges who ask to transfers these types of complaints do so to avoid conflict-of-interest issues.

So Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to be on the Supreme Court of The United of America and is presently working AND NOW they are checking on his ETHICS!

Now you know the idiom, “A country of laws not of men” which is bantered around like it really means something. It falls into that “Rule of Law” bull shit so often held up as some kind of sacred screed as it’s explanation runs on ad nauseam.

Usually being preached by some of the slickest criminals in our very own government!

The biggest setback to this entire “Rule of Law” business is that those with money and societal status have a far better chance of getting AROUND the law than a regular citizen and if you’re poor …….. forget it baby!

But even if you forget the poor little rich frat-choirboy Kavanaugh who is just the current special privileged token to get a job on connections alone and view the entire system that we pride ourselves …………. well, if you believe it, you are deceiving yourself.

Whether you realize it or not WE better duck because it is not only Deborah Ramirez that is getting Kavanaugh’s penis waved in her face! Oh sure it’s ok …….. he’s just drunk ……. just close your eyes.

Oh hell, Mitch McConnell has already kissed it!

 

A KAVANAUGH EXCUSE

 

Well GOD DAMN.

Tubularsock figures that Brett needs ALL the excuses he can get.

Seldom will the political class accept that they may actually be responsible for their own actions.

There is always somebody else to blame!

So as a PUBLIC SERVICE, Tubularsock is offering up this perfect holy idea for Brett to use.

We know that Brett or is it Brat, same difference Tubularsock suspects, has an agenda and won’t be a true legal champion of justice. But who counts anyway.

If the guy drinks booze as much as he drank water at the hearing we may not have to worry about his legal opinions because the fucker will be under the bench most of the time.

And with that even temperament and limited lack of control Kavanaugh displayed he’ll be a perfect example of white privilege shinning right out there in front for all to see.

We already have a black sex pervert on the Supreme Court so why not have a white one.

Another example of American fairness.

And last but not least is that if Brett Kavanaugh is appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States of America then the last of the Three Branches of the Government will truly represent the intellectual and cultural level of Walmart America.

Hell, Tubularsock wants to be in the front of the line for the fall sales!

 

AMERICA SCAMMED AGAIN!

As Tubularsock has mentioned before, Donald Trump is the symptom as well as the result of an America that has fallen off the tracks.

Any country that spends its time at war and not at peace is a sick country.

Americans have been willingly led down the primrose path by leaders that really don’t have the general interest of the “people” at heart.

EVERYTHING has been corporatized and that is epitomized by Citizens United!

The very first give away is when something is entitled with the term “Citizens” …… yes, a dead give away!

That ALWAYS means that a real citizen isn’t within a thousand mile radius of the pronouncement.

Now, of course here is a Tubularsock aside: Have you ever wondered what would happen if the poor would form a Corporation?

They could infinitely expand their lifestyle incomes with golden parachutes and fly first class all with smiling politicians bending over backwards with shit eating grins handing out new installments of corporate welfare checks WITHOUT the stigma of getting a hand out from the government!

Rather cool, RIGHT? Or LEFT …….. is there a real difference anymore? Not that Tubularsock has noticed.

Well shit! Another Tubularsock aside! (Can Tubularsock EVER stay on topic?)

Have you noticed that the RIGHT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “left-thinking”, whatever that is, and the LEFT, whatever that is, is ALWAYS being goaded by the fear of “right-thinking”, whatever that is?

But at the same time the power structure continues its agenda, whatever that is, to the point that if you really stop and look at it ………. something is being directed here without our consent.

For example, every time a poll is taken of the general public’s view about the U.S. going to war a resounding number of American citizens say NO TO WAR!

Yet ………. we have been at war THAT WE HAVE CAUSED for the last fifty plus years!

Oh sure, it’s called another name. You know, like a “Police Action”. That was what the Korean War was called AND IT’S NOT OVER YET!

And we always start the wars by propagandizing the citizens with, ….. “THEY attacked us” ….. as in a Vietnamese Gunboat attacked on an American ship in the Gulf of Tonkin. Then off we go blowing the hell out of Vietnam burning to death hundreds of thousands men, women, and children to SAVE AMERICA!

Only to discover that that incident in the Gulf of Tonkin NEVER HAPPENED!

So much for the “FREE PRESS”! Bull shit in, bull shit out!

And NOW those dangerous Vietnamese that threatened America then are now being sold armaments from our military-industrial-complex! God-Fucking-Bless-America!

Or Afghanistan …… why did we attack Afghanistan?

Oh yeah, Tubularsock remembers now, …….. to get bin Laden. And for what? There is still no proof that bin Laden planned 9/11. And before being attacked the Afghan Government said they’d turn bin Laden over to the U.S. if PROOF was provided that bin Laden was guilty.

But it was easier to bomb them than provide PROOF so seventeen years and still no proof, just continuous war.

And it’s good to remember:

9/11 WAS NOT AN INSIDE JOB!

IT WAS AN OUTSOURCED JOB.

THE U.S. ALWAYS OUTSOURCES IT’S TERRORIST ACTIVITIES!

Oh but the American population has forgotten Afghanistan because it’s now Syria ad nauseam. And Syria has DONE NOTHING to the U.S.! Oh well.

And don’t even get into Africa ……….. we are destabilizing Africa BIGLY but most Americans don’t even know we are there with our military.

And the Imbecile In Chief still thinks Africa is a “Bigly” country!

Which brings us back to Citizens United.

Money = votes and those with the most money = control. That is NOT democracy that is plutocracy and that is what Citizens United has created!

If a corporation is a person then ipso facto a person is a corporation! So just maybe the citizens may want to shift their status.

And hell, it’s cheaper than a sex change!

 

 

ICE TRUMP

Tubularsock has been busy repairing Tubularsock’s Top Floor Corner Office In The Underground Bunker Overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA (see Bunker Tour).

And while repairing dry-rot Tubularsock can not help but think of the Dump Administration and all of the leeches that are hanging on and sucking on Uncle Sam’s tits because those drained swamp folks had to go somewhere!

Like all Administrations there is plenty to go around but what Tubularsock LOVES about Donald is that he fucks you right up front and then tells you that it never happened.

Shrub, Slick Willy and Killery, and Obummer fucked you in secret and you just weren’t aware of it.

But THAT has been the nature of the U.S. Government from it’s beginnings. So the only difference is that the deception of criminality is outright criminality!

And by golly, the Ignoramus In Chief has an outstanding record with ripping people off right in front of them. That was why he bankrupted six businesses as a great businessman!

And just like Dump, he claims only four bankruptcies because as he told reporters from the Washington Post “. . . he counted the first three bankruptcies as just one”.

So with the ability to define six as four is really at the heart of Dump’s ethical temperament. And his base are just dumb enough to believe that that is being good at business. Watch your wallet gang. His base are not the brightest when it comes to believing THE FAT OLD ORANGE CON MAN! (FOOCM)

Oh but that isn’t even the half of it. He leads everyone you have ever known as the most petty little creep and the most insecure little slim ball on record.

HEY! Everyone is good at something!

And all that stems from a FOREIGN mother and a KRAUT father who slipped into the country as aliens. You know the type, no job, little education, no money in the bank and they came to suck off we GOOD WHITE CITIZENS that came a few years before and spoke English!

And even though English wasn’t the native language in North America WE ENGLISH had god on our side …….. SO THERE!

So being a foreign kid born to non-English parents Dump may NOT be able to be President! Has anyone asked to see Donald’s birth certificate?

Tubularsock suspects that Mary took a shit and out came Donnie! Well at least it fits his personality!

And just like alien immigrants do, Dump had a gillion children himself by different women and gave them jobs in the government to suck off we GOOD-HONEST-ENGLISH SPEAKING-REAL-AMERICANS! That’s what!

And Ivanka ISN’T a real American name, nor is Melania for Christ sake and Melania can’t even speak American! Fucking foreigners taking over America!

And now we even have to put up with Melania’s parents who entered America and recently became U.S. citizen using family-based immigration laws leading to “chain migration”!

And as Donald has often said “chain migration” provisions are dangerous for the country because they can lead to terrorism and other types of crime!

Donald should turn his entire family over to the ICE!

Deport the entire Dump family is what Tubularsock says. And separate those Dump family children and put them into Laura Ingraham style “summer-camps” until they can be reunited with their families back where they came from!

America for Americans is what Tubularsock says!

No seriously, it is the ONLY way to make America Fake Again!

 

IRAN–RATHER WALK!

 

Wow! Here’s some shit you need to know.

Rudy Giuliani addressed a rally in Paris Saturday June 30, 2018.

Get this …….. he spoke to a group called the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). These guys are mostly controlled by the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MeK).

Remember the MeK? Come on, you remember.

The MeK was once listed by the U.S. as a terrorist organization. But you know how that wind changes right? Now those same TERRORISTS are our friends.

Tubularsock has a “feeling” that we have been here before. Try Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, even Vietnam for starters. And WE LOST or are still loosing.

But winning is not the point …….. destabilization is the point.

Can you imagine loosing a child because they joined the military to destabilize the world? What a waste. Sure shows how your dead child was just cannon fodder for the machine.

And the regular people of those countries lost big time. Hundreds of thousands of them, DEAD! And the United States of America killed them or had them killed!

FOR WHAT? Rest assured Mr. and Mrs. America is wasn’t for your safety.

Now Rudy Giuliani is their friend!

(An aside about Rudy. Every time I listen to or see Rudy Giuliani, Tubularsock has to wash his hands. The slim that runs off that son-of-a-bitch is intense!)

And MeK is a Marxist-Islamist cult built around the personality of its leader, Maryam Rajavi.

Rudy under direction from Trump are backing a Marxist-Islamist cult? Damn!

“We are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran. . .” Rudy tells the 4000 member crowd.

And much of the crowd was bought and payed for by the organizers. A large portion of the crowd were refugees and young eastern Europeans who had been bused in to attend the rally in return for a weekend trip to Paris.(The Guardian 6/30/18)

Damn the price some people will endure to get to Paris. Tubularsock would have done that! “Yeah MeK!, NOW, can I go and see The Louvre?”

Giuliani continued with, “The mullahs must go, the ayatollah must go, and they must be replaced by a democratic government which Madam Rajavi represents!

“Freedom is right around the corner … Next year I want to have this convention in Tehran!”

And then Rudy let the cat out of the bag, the current wave of protests in Iran are being orchestrated from outside the country! Wonder if anyone bothered to ask the Iranians?

“Those protests are not happening spontaneously,” Giuliani said. “They are happening because of many of our people in Albania [which hosts an MeK compound] and many of our people here and throughout the world.”

So is Rudy saying “our people” because Rudy is a Marxist-Islamist cult member?

And that is how the U.S. worked the overthrow in the Ukraine by joining with the fascists
to bring the country down. The majority of the people wanted to side with Russia NOT the U.S.

In fact, the U.S. put up 5 BILLION dollars to overthrow Ukraine.

Now what do you think the U.S. (that is YOU, taxpayer) is putting up to attempt the overthrow Iran?

AND FOR WHAT?

JUST HOW WILL IT BENEFIT YOU?

Well, figure in the cost of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and then go out and look at your pot holed streets and broken bridges and the 21 TRILLION DOLLARS that the Pentagon has lost track of ……. hey, it’s got to be someplace!

No, don’t bother to check your own bank account to find it. For sure it’s not there!

Trust Tubularsock on that!

Now before anyone gets all upset about just how “dangerous” Iran is to the U.S. Tubularsock is willing to concede this idea.

Lets put Giuliani, John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, Newt Gingrich in a jeep with each with a M-16 and let them charge the boarder.

 

 

Seriously, Tubularsock will back them from his top floor corner office overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA!

VICTORY IS OURS!

 

LOCK THE CHILDREN UP, NOW!

Lets get something straight ……….. taking children from their parents after crossing the border seeking asylum is against EVERYTHING this country has ever stood for and yet Jeff Sessions, John Kelly and Dumbtrump and those Republican’ts that support them are breaking the LAW OF HUMAN DECENCY. (AGAIN!)

White House chief of staff John Kelly told NPR’s John Burnett earlier this month that “the children will be taken care of — put into foster care or whatever”.

AND YET 1500 children that were taken into custody ARE UNACCOUNTED FOR and nobody knows where they are or where they were sent!

WHAT THE FUCK?

Is this country THAT DYSFUNCTIONAL?

The U.S. is obligated to accept asylum-seekers under U.S. and international law if they can show a “credible fear” of persecution or torture.

There IS NO LAW that “. . . even remotely requires the separation of children (from their parents), and we filed a recent lawsuit arguing, in fact, that the Constitution prohibits this policy.” (According to the ACLU.)

The practice of putting children “. . . into foster care or whatever” was something that was being done when children arrived at our boarders UNACCOMPANIED but was not intended to be used for children who arrived with their parents.

That policy was CREATED by Sessions and OrangeDump NOT the Democraps!

Of course, OrangeDump is out there on his soap box blaming the Democraps but this time it is just not true. Pretty much like all things OrangeDump says. But who even counts anymore?

In an interview with NPR in May, White House chief of staff John Kelly described family separation as a “tough deterrent.” And that is from a guy who lost his own son so you’d think he’d have a better understanding and compassion for the loss of a child. But no, he doesn’t seem to get it no matter how often he visits his son’s grave in Arlington Cemetery.

Hey John, you may want to ask your wife about a loss of a son. Just another “tough deterrent” …… right John?

Like Tubularsock has said before and will repeat ad nauseam, the reason so many Latin Americans are fleeing for protection from their countries is because of the destructive U.S. foreign policies toward Latin America which have been going on for years.

Those policies have lead to the causes of a massive exodus from Latin America and according to government data shows that most of the children traveling alone and families traveling together from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, are fleeing drug cartels, gang violence and domestic abuse. As well as the dictators the U.S. installed while “influencing” their elections.

 

But COMPASSION is not one of Jeff Sessions and Dumps strong suits. Perhaps due to poor potty training in their formative years.

Holding in shit for that many years can cause a continuous flow in pseudo-adulthood.
