Bombastic Loudmouths

Calling for a bipartisan health care plan to replace Obamacare, Senator John McCain urged his senate colleagues to stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, TV and the internet.  Commonsense tells me that the sentiments expressed by  Senator McCain  on the floor of the U.S. Senate were long overdue.

Unfortunately, commonsense also tells me that  the American political system is badly broken when it takes a diagnosis of terminal brain cancer to bring an old man to his senses and  finally call for bipartisan solutions to the nation’s problems. Hopefully,  the talking heads on radio, TV and the internet, as well as Senator McCain’s senate colleagues, were listening carefully.

Good Day. Better Days lie ahead

Hope and Change

After the Democrats suffered sweeping election losses at the federal, state and local level across the country in the midterm elections in 2010 and 2014, the promise of ‘hope and change’ finally arrived in 2016 as the Republicans continued to make gains across the country, taking control of the U.S. Congress and the Presidency in the process. While some Democrats may see no hope,  commonsense tells me that the vast majority of Americans who represent the  working-class backbone of the nation, including a lot of life-long democrats, are very hopeful that things will improve under Republican leadership.

Commonsense tells me that if there is not clear evidence of such improvement soon, the voters will again exercise their power to block  unwise  policies  of the party in power like they did is 2010  when the Democrats  overreached  by enacting the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act without a single supporting Republican vote.  Commonsense also tells me that the political nonsense will soon stop as a long overdue return to bipartisan governance takes hold over the next eight years  when elected officials at last come to realize  that the voters will not tolerate anything less anymore.

Better Days are coming to America.

Twisted Logic in American Government

              After an exhaustive explanation of why the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was unconstitutional, the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, writing for the majority,  decided  that Obama care was constitutional after all as a tax. After an exhaustive explanation of the evidence showing that the presumptive Democrat Nominee for President of the United States of America, while serving as Secretary of State,  was extremely careless in handling classified emails in violation of at least one federal criminal statute the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation decided that no reasonable prosecutor would bring criminal charges based on that evidence.  Both decisions defy logic and commonsense and demonstrate a cowardly lack of integrity at the highest levels of the American government.

          It is now up to the American people to decide whether to change the American government. The decision begins with the Presidential Election in November 2016. Commonsense tells me that the vast majority of American citizens want to change things. Commonsense also tells me that too many American voters, dependent on the status quo,  will not allow change, unless the vast majority of American citizens who want to do the right thing actually turn out to vote in November, 2016. It just might happen.

          Good Day on this sad Day for the rule of law in America.

Lefty or Righty ?

          A good friend of mine, Jimmy K_________,  lost his left arm….it matters not how or why. We all call him Lefty. I wonder why we call JImmy K Lefty.  Why not call him Righty?  Commonsense tells me that Righty is as good a moniker as Lefty! So why do we call Jimmy K Lefty? Think about it…is there no answer to this imponderable?

          Just one more imponderable in this crazy world in which we live in 2016….but stay tuned, things are about to get better on another Day soon to arrive, I hope and trust!

Another Inconvenient Truth for Obamacare

          It seems that Professor Gruber has revealed yet another inconvenient truth , as if the list attached to  the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act  (a/k/a Obamacare) was not already long enough.

          Commonsense tells me that this  time  is different  because  Professor Gruber, in his arrogant exuberance, has  unmasked   the utter contempt for the American voter and the true character of the current occupant of the Whitehouse.  The political stage is now set for the demise of Obamacare  in the next congress, if the U.S. Supreeme Court does not deal the death blow sooner in King v. Burwell to be decided by July 2015.

          The administration of the 44th President of the United States of America is now effectively over.  Professor Gruber has unwittingly provided the incentive for American voters  to complete the job, started two weeks ago,  of righting the ship of state,  in the national elections in 2016.

          Good Day!

ObamaCare and Ben Carson

Ever since Dr. Ben Carson first spoke about the Affordable Health Care Act (a/k/a ObamaCare),  with the 44th President of the United States of America sitting at his right hand,   at the National Prayer Breakfast, I took notice.  Dr. Carson’s remarks  made commonsense then. This initial impression was confirmed as I listened to Dr. Ben Carson’s latest remarks on ObamaCare aired on the Mike Huckabee Show last weekend.

Americans of whatever political persuasion with any modicum of commonsense  should readily agree that ObamaCare is fatally flawed and must be repealed by the next Congress of the United States of America.

Good Day!
