      (MANDOS POST MANDOS POST MANDOS POST MANDOS POST) In a weird twist of fate, American liberals and (some) leftists are finding themselves in the non-traditional position of standing in the “hawk” corner, while (some) American conservatives under Trump are in the position of wanting to cut deals with so-called traditional enemies of the USA.  Whether […] […]

The Horror, The Horror

Good job on calling your local GOP asshole, everyone. We have a temporary reprieve until after the July 4th holiday. During that time, McConnell and his obscenely wealthy donors, will apply the thumbscrews to Susan Collins, Dean Heller and a couple other holdouts. Will they turn before the rest of the country figures out what the hell is in this bill? Because if what I heard last night is any indication, the average working class American is shocked and royally pissed off that the Republicans are planning to deprive children of health insurance just because their parents don’t work for a company that can cover them. 

That sentiment is going to spread among anyone who is not a 27 year old white male who presumably will never get sick or injured while he’s driving over the speed limit and weaving between cars on the New Jersey turnpike. 

Shock, horror, dismay, a deep sense of betrayal. 

Yup. 

And if Donald Trump signs that bill or tries to strong arm Senators to pass The Law Governing the Whipping of Poor Sick Children, people are  not going to love him. No they are not.

Of course, he will blame them for being too stupid to be rich, which will bring a whole new set of people who will not love him. And probably a tweet storm. 

But in any case, we have a week. Don’t let up. Spread the word. 

*******************************

The new job is working out nicely. The work is analytical and technical. It appeals to the girl geek in me. Call me Gigi. I’m not forced to dress up every morning and there’s a coffee shop around the corner that makes latte just the way I like it with plenty of hot foamy skim milk. The salary will never make me rich but I can live on it. All in all, it’s the best job I’ve had since my site closed in 2011. 

Time to save up for the next layoff. 😉
