So what is wrong with pay to play? Well simply, people expect returns on their investments. When they pay to play, they expect outsized returns. The people that end up paying for those outsized returns are the taxpayer.
These are things the media does not say. They treat pay to play as a victimless crime.
Bubba don’t think so.
Put together a panel to propose a national health plan. Let them propose a plan. Then put it on the ballot, and let the nation vote on it.
Typically it takes a war and total devastation to enact national health care. Maybe we can make it less painful. It would probably take a national sales tax? Could probably be able to vote on how to pay for it too.
Bubba be curious on what the better plan is.
Lower corporate taxes to make America competitive with other nations. This will keep jobs and wages here. Also bring more money in from overseas.
Increase capital gains taxes to a greater rate than income tax. This will reduce the excess riches of the rich. Also help reduce the deficit.
Bubba be watching Trumps tax plan.
Donald made some obtuse tweet about Huma Abedin, and her silly husband Anthony. As usual the tweet is just to stir the kettle. The media jumped right on it, and that’s how I came to hear about it. I find Huma a rather intriguing person. Mysterious and exotic, she is a close aid to Hillary. Born in the United States, she was raised in Saudi Arabia. Then when she returned to the United States she soon became part of the Clinton team. I actually view Huma as the woman behind the woman. I am sure there is a good book or two in the Huma Abedin story.
Huma had a most fairytale wedding to rising political star Anthony, look it up if you have free time. Weddings do not get any better, as far as lavishness goes. Not sure who paid for it, but it was the political event of the year. Sad it ended up as it did, but I have to wonder if it was a marriage of convenience. Just part of the show.
People being people there has to be some emotional repercussions, could be actual heartbreak of broken love. Or simply sadness from the loss of a charade. In any rate, it is much more complex than a silly tweet.
The news cycle has already moved on, however I think this is a sad story of broken dreams deep within the Clinton camp. The ramifications will not be subtle.
Some people say that Donald Trump does not like M&M‘s. Actually a lot of people, and the press say that Donald doesn’t like M&M’s. Well they are wrong Donald loves M&M’s. He just didn’t like the M&M’s with nuts in them. You can not tell if a M&M has a nut in it by its color. It is actually hard to tell if a M&M has a nut in it. So the easiest way to avoid the nuts is to avoid M&M’s. However M&M’s are so good and yummy. So trying to avoid a nasty MS-13 nut, or a dangerous jihadist nut whilst enjoying M&M’s is actually rather difficult. We are smart people, we should be able to enjoy M&M’s while avoiding the nuts.
Full disclosure, I enjoy M&M’s and am allergic to nuts.
When Donald J Trump crosses the undefined line of civility, his staff, his party, his supporters, the media, and even his family will raise objections. Amazingly enough, he listens.
When Hillary Rodham Clinton crosses that same line of undefined civility, well not much happens. Hillary has surrounded herself with servile dogs. Her party cowers in fear. Her staff support her every whim. Even her supporters nod in acquiescence. The press, unconscionably, ignore the danger. As they believe it is for the common good.
A man of reason, or a woman with unrestrained power? I may exaggerate slightly, but really, what can explain the vicious attacks on a mans supporters without outcry?
So the Trump campaign loves me so much they gave me this hat. Unsurprisingly it is a Great Hat. Of course it is made in the USA, like more stuff should be. The first thing I discovered is that it is a great convertible hat. It does not blow off my head. I think it’s a bit deeper than most hats. Maybe because it has two lines of type. So it firmly hangs onto my head. If I were to choose a Trump hat I would have chosen a red hat because I like Red. However the wise people of the Trump campaign decided to give me a white hat. Maybe because they think I am a good guy? Good guys wear white hats, or so I have been told. Of course they may have just run out of more desirable red hats. So now I have a good guy mentality. It is a bit hard to do because the hat is so white, I have to be careful to not get dirt and grease on it. But all in all, I am happy to be a good guy in a white hat that stays on my head when I drive the convertible.
An unexpected side effect is the reactions of people to the hat. I have always been a peaceful type of guy and have never reacted strongly to what people wear. I have been known to complement people that wear Hawaiian shirts though. So I was not surprised when I received complements on the hat. When I get a compliment, if I am able I will give the person a bumper sticker or a yard sign. The unexpected reactions were of people that I consider my friends, they would not let me wear my hat. I’m actually quite hurt by that. It is a good hat, free, made in the USA, does not blow off my head, keeps the sun out of my eyes, and makes me feel like a good guy. They hate it. What is wrong with my friends?
Maybe if the type on the hat was printed in a mirror image they would not be able to understand it. Not that I see anything wrong with what the hat says. I think America is great, one of my favorite sayings is “Life Is Good”. It’s they that do not like my hat who complain about our country. At least that is my perception. The again is for them, it is the same as saying, Make America Great For Everybody.
