Random Thoughts: AHCA and Comey

Please stop giving Stephen Colbert or Donald Trump attention.

Chrome, I like that I can mute a tab, but how about sites have to ask for permission before playing sound?

My first experience with Dark Tower was the Marvel comic adaptation which I enjoyed. I then read the first novel and it was terrible.

I don’t know why so many oppose using magical fairy money to pay for the health care everyone wants.

And the argument still is this garbage fire government needs even more control over health care.

I’m glad caring about the poor doesn’t involve anything more than self-righteously arguing how to spend other people’s money.

The left seem completely disinterested in the people in the middle class who were screwed over by Obamacare.

People’s political opinions tell you less about their character than you think.

We’re going back to the dark days of 2009 when poor sick people were summarily executed.
And the hospitals would charge $3,000 per bullet. What was that all about?

An irresponsible bill made by idiots is being replaced by another irresponsible bill made by idiots and I’m too beaten down to care.

Millions are going to die. Maybe around 3 million a year. Probably all unrelated to whatever bill the idiots in Congress passed, though.

Do people honestly think the bill is going to kill millions? Were millions dying pre-ACA? Are there stats to back that up?

If you want people to listen to concerns about ACA being repealed, you have to stop being complete sociopaths about the people harmed by it.
Obama flat out lied to the middle class and then made their insurance worse and more expensive. That was inexcusable.
If you can’t acknowledge that, people are right to dismiss whatever else you say as just more lies made to manipulate people.

The best way Hillary’s PAC could help the Democrats is for it to fund an underground bunker she could hide in and never be heard from again.

With everyone going to 11 about everything, it’s getting impossible to tell the real dumb bad things from the made up dumb bad things.

We need less freaking out and more world-weary head shaking.

You can tell who’s really are worried about the affects of AHCA because they’re not just rallying around talking points.
So no one.

If you like your preexisting condition, you can keep your preexisting condition.

Never watched Mary Poppins since I was a kid. So the premise is those two kids are awful hellions who scare away nannies?
And I’m not sure what Dick Van Dyke is doing, but I am sure it’s problematic.

A good rule of thumb on partisan issues is those who scream the loudest care the least.

Congratulations to Hillary Clinton for being elected president of France.

Well, my six-year-old daughter is very excited for the Wonder Woman movie. I’m not sure it will be appropriate, though.
I mean, this is the same universe as Ben Affleck’s Punisher in a bat costume.

Yes. Finally completed a draft of a novel that’s been “near complete” for years. Next project: the sequel to Superego.
What I completed is my third novel. My second novel should be coming out later this year, so save up those dollars.

I’m excited to get working on a sequel to Superego. People really liked it, but there are a few flaws I’ve seen pointed out in reviews.
A sequel is a chance for me to build on what I’ve learned and hopefully make something even better.
Rico is a dark character, though. I don’t know why I made the main character of my first novel a psychopath. But hey, it was entertaining.

Superego quite popular on Audible. Feel accomplished that someone can listen to 10 1/2 hours of my writing and consider it a good experience.

Want wife to finally watch Blade Runner, but need to prepare her for it. What’s the non-pejorative way of saying it’s kinda slow and boring.

I was not prepared for Blade Runner when I first saw it as a kid. Was expecting some Star Wars sorta fun scifi adventure.
Same thing happened when I saw 2001 as a kid. Did not understand beginning and ending, but the middle part with the killer AI was fun.

Slow doesn’t always mean boring. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly takes it time. Every episode of Better Call Saul is no rush but riveting.

I don’t get all the bad reviews for Iron Fist. Three episodes in, I’m enjoying it so far.

When telling my kids about space travel, I feel like a character from Mad Max talking about “The Beforetimes, in the Long Long Ago…”
“Perhaps your wise grandmother can tell you of when man landed on the moon.”

Despite all the funding and support Trump gave Comey, Hillary is still at large hiding in the woods somewhere.

I know everyone likes to freak out over everything President Trump does, but let’s give the new FBI director, Vladimir Putin, a chance.

  1. Trump does something stupid
  2. Democrats overreact in an idiotic, partisan way so no one takes them seriously
  3. Repeat

Cost effective thing to do is turn entire city of DC into a prison like from Escape from New York but make sure no elected officials escape.

    A slow-burn modern film noir hardboiled detective movie set in a dark L.A. future.

    Will that work?

    Well, that’s usually what I mean when I say “chick flick”, although for Blade Runner it’s the ABSENCE of dialogue that makes it so.

    Just plug in ear phones; no sound comes out. When you want to listen, listen.

    I’m certainly glad my doctor doesn’t practice medicine the way my legislature legislates. “We will remove this nasty malignant tumor, once we find something equally terrible to replace it with.”

    • “Your choices for surgeon are a woman who keeps getting charged in stabbing murders (but never convicted!), and a guy who’s never done this before, but used to be a butcher, which is basically the same thing.”
      “Can’t I find another surgeon somewhere?”
      “IT’S A BINARY CHOICE!”

      Now, that’s worth being a Straight Line of the Day, right there!

      “We spent all the money for surgical tools and anesthesia on this high-speed gurney to get you to the operating room, where you’ll be met by unDoctor-mented immigrants whose dream was to practice medicine in this country .”

    Just tell her the set design is amazing!

    Which is to movies what ‘great personality’ is to blind dates.

    It “rewards concentration.”

    It is “intellectually challenging.” When she finds it boring, she will be afraid to mention it because it will make her appear too stupid to get it.
