U With the Uterus 

Hey! You with the uterus! 

Stop right there!

Drop that insurance card!

Hands in the air!

You suspected pregnancy 

And bought a urine test

Don’t try to pass it off as new— 

The condition pre-exists!

Mammograms and Pap smears

All your women’s needs

You expect them to be covered 

In your health plan? That’s just greed.

Rich old white male politicians 

Won’t vote to subsidize the cost

Of care to keep you healthy here

In America— democracy is lost

Though they all had mothers 

Who birthed them at one time

Do their moms see what happened 

To their Repugnant offspring? It’s a crime.

A tax cut has priority 

Over compassion and ethics

Viagra however— treats a condition 

Which never pre-exists

So, you with the uterus, 

Happy Mothers Day!

Of that uterus, what happens to it— 

By the way, you have no say

Though the senate won’t approve this bill, 

Their version keeps women under attack

Because it’s not orange, no it’s Women 

Women are the GOP’s new black

Trump Tweets on 5/8/2017 / The World Through Orange-Colored Glasses

As is the new normal, when the heat is turned up Trump turns to Twitter. 

Sally Yates testimony yesterday, 8 May 2017, substantiated the damning information we already had. There were no bombshells, just confirmation of what has been previously reported. 

~~~

Trump seems to address those questioning Yates, as if they are following his twitter feed 24/7. They must not have had a signal.

Trump is concerned with how the truth was leaked, rather than the content of the truth that was leaked. 

~~~

Now on record— Sally Yates had warned Trump’s people that Flynn had ties to Russia— 18 days before Trump took action to fire Flynn. 

In answer to the above non-sense, the Obama administration fired Flynn in 2014. Trump had also been personally warned by President Obama prior to Trump’s inauguration that Flynn was a danger to national security.

~~~

Back to surveillance. Unplug the microwaves.

 Trump’s response is always to kill the messenger—attack the source of news media. Like a vulture beaking out the eyes of its pray, Trump pecks Tweets of “Fake News.” 

~~~

News previously leaked by unnamed sources is gradually proving to be true. 

As painfully slow as this investigation is progressing, it will continue. As FBI director Comey stated, the FBI will continue to investigate trumps ties to Russia for as long as it takes. 


Trump cares about how American tax dollars are spent— they’d be better spent on his golf weekends, or keeping his wife in Manhattan.

~~~

Sometimes I think Trump is tweeting entirely for my entertainment, but it is more likely he tweets for his fans— those who only get their information on world events from the orange one himself. Either way, I am entertained.

That wraps up my review of yesterdays tweet storm. Keep those rubber boots and umbrellas ready, because there may be more weather ahead.

Colbert and Free Speech

Free speech is a right we all share

We may joke of ‘president millionaire’

Don’t like what you hear

When a TV host says queer

Then don’t watch Steven Colbert

~~~

Your outrage might be better spent

On world damage we might prevent 

Is it duplicitous

You don’t find unjust

Treason, healthcare, golf,—(taxes misspent)? 

Celebrating the Loss of Healthcare for Millions

It was a day worth celebrating for Republican supporters of the bill repealing healthcare benefits offered in the Affordable Care Act. Their “win,” which if followed by another “win” in the Senate, will result in countless deaths, is a reason to celebrate—for them. The wealthiest country in the free world, it would appear, has the greediest politicians.

Our retribution will come on Election Day. The following members of the House of Representatives who voted yes are up for reelection next year:
*Jason Chaffetz was all smiles as he rolled in to vote yes on the bill that cuts healthcare coverage for millions of taxpayers— after having had his own elective surgery on a preexisting condition—paid for by tax payers. 

The phrase that comes to mind when I think of this attitude toward healthcare is “There but for the grace of God go I.” I live in recognition that others misfortunes could be my own. I understand that my fate is not entirely in my hands. Because I am fortunate to have healthcare today does not guarantee I won’t meet with the adversity of being uninsured tomorrow. 

If you have an excellent healthcare package through your employer, as do I, you may think none of this matters to you. Think again. Many of these stipulations allow employer provided plans to follow suit in what will become the new normal. 

“Deductibles are going to come down. It’s going to be fantastic health care,” Trump said of the Republican-backed American Health Care Act. “Right now Obamacare is failing.” 

A closer look at the changes the bill provides: 

  • At least 24 million Americans will lose their healthcare. 
  • Slashes Medicaid benefits overall by $880 billion.
  • Lifetime caps on coverage…Insurance offered by employers may also be imposed with a lifetime cap. 
  • Allows states to exclude such benefits as: emergency services, hospitalization, mental health care, preventive care, maternity care, and substance abuse treatment.
  • Insurance rates will be based on health history. States will no longer require insurers to charge the same rates for everyone, regardless of their medical history. The elderly will pay 5X more for their insurance coverage, and cancer patients could be required to pay up to $140,000 annually for insurance. 
  • Preexisting conditions put you into a high-risk pool…and if you’re wondering what is considered a preexisting condition here are a few examples: alzheimer’s, rape, asthma, epilepsy, pregnancy, mental health disorders, diabetes, arthritis, aids, cerebral palsy, paralysis, eating disorders, paraplegia, alcoholism, Parkinson’s disease, strokes, transsexualism, Pneumocystic pneumonia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, organ transplants, Crohn’s disease, congestive heart failure, hepatitis, lupus, coronary disease, kidney failure, (meaning dialysis isn’t covered), etc. 

Those with preexisting mental health issues will be denied healthcare by the same politicians who will make guns accessible to them.

  • Medical underwriting, is back—when you apply for insurance you’ll have to document every condition or ailment you’ve ever had.
  • Ends taxes on corporations by almost $300 billion 
  • Tax cuts of $300 billion given to the wealthiest 2%
  • Big Pharma’s lobbying pays off with hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts – for the industry that charges Americans exponentially higher prices for the same drugs than any other country in the world. 

Supporters of this bill have their own peculiar preexisting condition. They lack the humility that would allow them to understand that no one deserves healthcare more or less than they do. They believe they are entitled to that which they would deny others. These politicians who celebrated yesterday voted to keep ACA benefits for themselves…paid for by taxpayers, many of whom will lose their own coverage. 

Hours after celebrating the first step in the annihilation of America’s healthcare, Trump met with Australia’s Prime Minister and praised their universal healthcare system. 

“I shouldn’t say this to our great gentleman and my friend from Australia, because you have better health care than we do. We’re going to have great health care very soon.” ~Trump 

And now Trump is in NJ golfing for the weekend.

Trump—101 Day Summation—Via Word Association 

These are my expostulations

Of an event beyond imagination

An electoral college upset expectations

Installed thanks to Russian insinuation 

Leading to an arguably rainy inauguration 

Alternate truth— a Trump foundation 

Regardless of his cognitive limitations 

A crowd size yuge— with magnification

Popular vote loss— his preoccupation 

He employs his friends and their relations 

Both Kushners too— immediate integration

Trump commenced his weekly golf vacations

Million dollars a day—Melania’s tabulation

Trump extended family spring Vail infestation

Regardless of tax payers indignation

Worldwide anti Trump demonstrations

First on his list—eliminate banking regulations

Next—a laughable so called negotiation

With big-pharma on prices of medications

Healthcare bill- a promise fluctuation 

Without any diplomatic negotiations

Or foreign leader communication

They must read his daily twitter quotations

He has called obsolete—The United Nations

Put North Korean on notification

WWIII a prognostication

Ended U.S.immigration

Commenced immigrant deportations

The Constitution has seen depreciation 

To distract from Flynn’s capitulation 

He bombed Syria – a fabrication

Followed by Sean Spicer’s clipped summations 

False wire tapping accusations

Tax cuts only for corporations

Emoluments clause—a complication 

Fake charitable donations 

His indisclosed taxes—causing estimations 

Who needs environmental organizations 

Or a planet for future generations

Monthly ego re-fuel— by red hat crowd orations  

Sessions frequent racist exclamations  

Chaffetz emergency surgical declaration

Sarah Palin’s not surprising degradation 

Giuliani crazed agitation

Pence anti-female mastication

Countless ethics violations

Stone, Manafort, Cohen, Paige resignations

Russian hotel bladder assignations

Countless recriminations

Cayman Island fund diversifications 

Tillerson Exon-Mobile-Rosneft consideration 

All under FBI investigation 

Likely impeachment indications

Treason has it’s ramifications 

Is Russia or prison—Trump’s final destination?

A Trumpworthy Tax Plan 

* Warning- this limerick might be offensive to someone somewhere… 

Donald Trump has a new tax plan 

Not quite what he said when he ran 

Sorry SAD! middle class

For your well used crevass

This tax cut is just for THE MAN

~~~Corporate greed is the root of all evil.~~~
