2017, A Hell Bound Train Of A Year (Part 8): Republican Words As Windows To Their Souls. Round 2


-by Noah

As I said in the intro of Round 1 on this topic a few days ago, the old saying goes that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Ah, but that presumes that republicans aren’t soulless creatures. Their words and actions indicate otherwise. I mean; can you imagine that any soul or that any soul would want to live in such a spiritually toxic body as that of Paul Ryan or Donald Trump?

For this round, I thought it would be good to deal with the topic of health care, since it was such a driving force behind the psychotic and sociopathic actions of republicans in 2017.

The following quotes are actual words from the mouths of these horrors.

1. Kellyanne Conway, White House Spokescretin:
Those on Medicaid who will lose health insurance can always get jobs.
And what jobs are those Kellyanne? What jobs with benefits? What jobs for people who are so disabled that that is why they are on Medicaid in the first place? This is classic Republican “Let them eat cake” stuff. Or, to put it another way, they’re saying “Let them eat shit.”

Nearly 1 in 5 Americans are on Medicaid. Do the math. Are there really enough jobs to cover that 1 in 5 of 325,000,000 citizens? How many of those jobs Kellyanne and her despicable ilk yap about will provide enough salary to deal with an onslaught of six-figure cancer treatment bills? Oh, and since Medicaid covers two-thirds of our people in nursing homes, please tell me, Kellyanne, what jobs will they be getting? Medicaid also covers 1 out of 3 American children. What jobs do you have planned for them, Kellyanne, even after your psychotic party has done away with child labor laws?

Conway’s statement isn’t just classic republican “fuck all of you” talk. The kind of person who would make such a statement is either so far out of touch that they belong in a home for the insane, or, they are just so filled with contempt for humanity that it was their consciously planned and thought out message to mankind. It also reminds me of Trump’s blissfully moronic Economic Council Director, Gary Cohn stating that a family getting a $1000 tax break could use it to renovate their kitchen or buy a new car. Really, one can remodel a kitchen for only a $1000? And, does that $1000 car come with wheels that turn?

Come to think of it, Kellyanne is already in a home for the insane. It’s called the White House.

2. $enator Chuck Grassley of Iowa:

Here’s Chucky saying he’s going to vote against health care for his fellow Americans even though he sees reasons why that “might” be the wrong thing to do.
I could maybe give you 10 reasons why this bill shouldn’t be considered. But republicans campaigned on this so often that you have a responsibility to carry out what you said in the campaign.
No, Mr. Grasshole. your responsibility is to do what is right for the people who voted for you even if they were stupid enough for you. And, since when has a politician held his or her campaign promises sacred? You are being so extremely disingenuous here that you should get some sort of award. I can think of several forms that award could take.

Obviously Grasshole doesn’t get any of this, and if he did he wouldn’t give a shit anyway. He’s got his health care and we pay for it. For him, as for most of his colleagues, it’s all about doing what is best for his corporate masters who keep him afloat with bribes in the form of “campaign contributions”. Keep in mind that when confronted with the stories about Roy Moore and underage girls, he laughed his head off, right on TV. They don’t come much lower than Chucky.

3. Señor Trumpanzee himself:
Let Obamacare implode.
Back in July, Trump had words, what he would call “the best words” after the $enate, controlled by his Republican Party, dramatically failed to repeal Obamacare, at least temporarily. It was a bitter disappointment for a party that aspires to be a party of mass murderers by taking way the insurance of tens of millions of Americans.

Republicans in Washington have voted over 60 times but they have failed. They’ve managed to hurt Obamacare, aka The Affordable Care Act, many times, often by denying it funding at the state level or removing funding for advertising the availability of the program. Only with their Christmas Tax Scam vote have they dealt it a serious blow. But the July failure was because there were 3 republican senators who were capable of mustering some level of temporary sanity and moral bearing. While the rest of the repug senators in the building fancied themselves as carrying on and building upon the works of people like Charlie Manson or the Zodiac Killer, Senators Collins, McCain, and Murkowski said no to the republican dream of “No Chemo For You.” That the final vote was a stunner is a measure of what republicans are.

Trump didn’t stop. Next he tantrum tweeted is demand:
Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!
And, tweeted some overt threats (his caps, not mine):
If a new Healthcare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!
Señor Trumpanzee’s threat against the insurance companies would sabotage not only Obamacare, but the entire healthcare industry. This is the action of a madman intent on creating as much mayhem and death as he possibly can.

It seems that no amount of American carnage will be enough to satisfy the dreams of the raging Trumpanzee. To top it off, a few days later, in New York, Trump spoke to a confab of New York police and made his implode statement to the cheers of the police. That was especially heinous when one considers that the police Trump was speaking to, like the republican senators who repeatedly vote against Obamacare, enjoy the benefits of government health care, not only for themselves but for their families, for life. So much for the concept of “protect and serve.”

4. Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho:
“No one dies because they don’t have access to healthcare.”
When Labrador said that, it got me to thinking about other things that Republicans believe:
Contraception does not work. No one gets pregnant from not using contraception. Only an aspirin held firmly between the knees is necessary.
No one dies from a gun fired by a mentally ill person
Trump is not a neo-Nazi.
Putin, now that’s a leader and the Russian are our friends!
There’s no need for having a woman on the panel dealing with healthcare.
Some rape is legitimate.
Jesus is coming tomorrow, no, wait, next week, no wait, next month, no wait…
Voter Fraud exists on a wide scale but Election Fraud does not exist at all.
All Syrians are terrorists by their very nature.
There’s such a thing as corn oil so how can a flood of oil in a cornfield be bad? Pipes never leak anyway.
Trump is not mentally ill.
Gay conversion therapy is swell.
Domestic violence should be strictly between one man and one woman.
Republicans need protection from the spells of witches.
There’s no need for a presidential candidate to release their taxes to the public.
Tax cuts beget the tickle down.
Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan.
The fact that reports of Gen. Flynn’s activities have been reported in the news is more important than those activities.
5. Mike Pence, Vice President and Chief Verbal Fellator To Señor Trumpanzee
Every day Obamacare survives is another day America suffers.
Yeah, right. Asshole. No further comment necessary.

And Louis Gomert wasn't even quoted here.

The fact is that most R pols say shit like this all the time. Remember bobdole saying milk was bad for you? newt gingrich? the procession of Baghdad bobs that trump has employed? The Baghdad bobs that cheney/bush had? Donald Rumsfeld and condoLIESa rice? Nixon?

Their voters don't care. They'll vote against the democrat/democrap out of religious piety alone. They don't need anyone who can speak a sentence or even experience a thought. They just won't abide anyone who doesn't hate, fear or practice 13 kinds of greed daily.

Where else in the world could a michelle bachman, sarah palin or anyone quoted herein or mentioned above be elected as a "leader" of a nation? It takes a truly stupid and evil electorate. I ask again... where else.

Now that the Republicans, Grassley and Graham in particular, are doing all they can to criminalize and ruin anyone associated with the Mueller investigation, i.e., Fusion and Steele, they have become Enemy #1 of the American people. Our own government is now our enemy! They are aiming to protect Trump when they know what criminal and dangerous mess he is! Their actions are criminal as well - they are now guilty of obstruction!

Can someone please wake me up from this bad dream?

The Dems had better take back Congress in 2018.

Hone, how will democraps taking back the house (the senate is out of reach since they'd need 75 to overcome the cowardice and fascists baked into that caucus) make any difference?

Do you NOT remember 2006-2010 at all?

It's much more important to remember 2010, 7:05. Obamanation had veto proof Congressional majorities and WASTED the opportunity. The DINO-Whigs did nothing waiting for him to lead. Obamanation waited for the Congress to take the lead. Nothing got done, and the corporatist Republicans grabbed the opportunity to take power. They are about to make the nation pay for our "disturbing lack of faith" in the GOP Force.

Now here is where you (DINO-whig guy/gal) and I differ.

Obamanation, reid and Pelosi were totally sympatico. O may have demurred out of deference to the others or out of cowardice or both. But, correct, he never did "lead" except from behind. Instead he took up the task of normalizing and covering up all the crimes and ills from his predecessors, with special note to bill fucking Clinton. The crash is traceable directly to Clinton and democraps servicing finance with deregs, CFMA and GLBA (interestingly, not even fox nor breitbart bothered to look it up), so obamanation inoculated them by keeping all bank fraudsters out of the spotlight and out of open court. He refused also to enforce the Vienna accords on torture, Sherman and several other tried and tested laws. He refused to act as FDR did to recover, leaving all recovery up to the private sector, which we all know and saw are never up to the task. Instead of investing, he introduced austerity and offered more that was refused by boner.
As for his CIC impostering, he didn't reverse course on any of the evils of cheney and bush. He made them worse, special note on drone killing. And his DOJ never did shit to fix voting, restore voting rights nor push for marriage equality. Quite the opposite, in fact.

And his fake, lobbyist-written ACA was pure theatre to distract us from the fact that it was an insurance bailout and NOT a health CARE bill.

Neither the congressional democraps nor obamanation waited on the other. Neither was ever going to do anything progressive. They were extremely busy cashing checks from the money to make sure of this.

You clearly forget when Obamanation declared that he was waiting for the Congress to bring him a bill he could sign. He could easily have used the Bully Pulpit to raise the pressure on his Party's Congress, but instead he basked in his "cool" Presidential jacket and pretended to do his job.

At 4:14 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I didn't forget. I just ignore what they say. I watch only what they do and refuse to do. All those declarations are simply ambient noise... like the flushing of a toilet.

At 6:25 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

It was indicative of his lack of concern to actually use the power he held. For this I damn him to Hell, and his LIEbury with him.

At 8:03 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

And when he did use the power he had, he used it for further evil (drone murders, for instance).

Until the last 9 months of his second term. He did do some reasonably useful things via EO which trump immediately undid. Trump (or any R who would have won) was able to do this because obamanation failed/refused to install better memes from day 1 and for his failure/refusal to fix the democrat party which led to $hillbillary's fraudulent nomination... and loss.

So... yeah. Draw a straight line from obamanation to trump.
