Random Thoughts: The ACHA and Milkshake Duck

I hope little girls see the Wonder Woman movie and realize they can be anything they want to be. Except ghostbusters.

The Dems make a pretty good argument that Trump is terrible. They don’t have a good argument that they’re better.

“We’ll stop the ACHA!”
“You think we’d reveal our bill if there remained a chance of you affecting its outcome? We passed it 35 minutes ago.”

Would help the WH spokespeople explain away Trump’s statements if they could say, “You have to remember, the president is kind of a dummy.”

“But he implied he had tapes of Comey.”
“There’s a simple explanation for that: Trump’s an idiot who should not be taken seriously.”
And then everyone would just sort of nod and say, “That makes sense. He does seem like an idiot.” And the scandal is gone.

Is there anyone saying how bad Trumpcare will be who didn’t squander all their credibility saying how great Obamacare would be?

BEFORE: “Obamacare means lower premiums and you get to keep your doctor.”
NOW: “Repealing Obamacare will kill people!”
Whatever, liars.

“Planned Parenthood does a lot of other things than abortion” always reminds me of “The Civil War wasn’t just about slavery.” Yes, but no.
If PP did all it currently does except abortion, neither Republicans nor Democrats would care about it. Public wouldn’t have heard of it.
Pretending opposition to PP is anything other than opposition to abortion or support is something other than support of abortion is silly.
In a free country, people who don’t like abortion wouldn’t need to have their money associated with it.
And in a free country, people who like abortion could voluntarily raise all the money they want for abortions.
But no one likes a free country. We like partisan footballs.
So says me, Frank J. Fleming, the only reasonable person observing politics. You can praise me for my wisdom now.

When Obama jumps in the debate, I think “There’s that sociopath who ruined my health insurance and wants me to thank him.”

Was… was Johnny Depp comparing Trump to President Lincoln?

Writing sequel to Superego is not going as fast as hoped. I only have a little spare time each day for it. Still, I’d guess you’ll see it before Game of Thrones book 6.

How do you determine what a living wage is? Do you pay someone less and less until he dies?

“The Republicans are going to kill millions of people!!!”
“Eh… still rather them than the Democrats.”

For all those yelling about it, if the AHCA passes, do you have plans to try and save the thousands (millions?) who are going to die?

I don’t agree with the left that if someone’s labor is worth less than $15 an hour then it should be illegal for that person to get a job.

The suggested retail price for SNES Classic is $80 and the suggested eBay price is $400.

Pretty hard to tell what’s going on with health care, but at least you can be certain that no one on either side is telling you the truth.

Capitalism is a system that will give you everything you ever wanted as long as you can be okay with someone else having a lot more.

So are we supposed to pretend to not notice the huge differential between the men’s leagues and women’s leagues in sports?

I was disturbed to find out about Milkshake Duck’s racism. But I’m also disturbed by how quickly and viciously people turned on him.
Yes racism is bad. But we’re all bad. We all have awful flaws. There is beauty and ugliness in us. We all drink milkshakes and are racists.
And isn’t the most problematic thing of all placing yourself on a pedestal above someone else? Or above a milkshake drinking duck?
I don’t like the path we’re on. It’s a path along which the trains get ever smaller. Far enough along, we’ll be in tiny train world.

I don’t think we have enough guns in this country until we have enough for every man, woman, and child to dual-wield.

It would be nice if either George W. Bush or Barack Obama wrote “Being a U.S. President for Dummies.” I know who I’d buy it for.

The great thing about having three kids is now I can put up weekly child rankings to motivate them.

So single-payer is the theory that everything will be all puppies and sunshine if Trump just had more control over health care.

    So let me get this straight. Before 2010 millions of people died. After 2010 we had millions of additional people alive who would have been dead just years before. If a repeal passes millions of people will begin dropping like flies again. And the proof of this is…?

    That’s funny, I was thinking of writing a book about Obama called “Dummies Being a U.S. President”!
