War on My Kids

My daughters, my daughters

What have we wrought?

We raised you to be something,

That's what you were taught!

Studied and worked and studied some more

Only to find the ship leaving the shore

Told you could make it if only you tried

Well geuss what, my daughters?

The old ones have lied

We lied and we did it

With smiles on our face

Smug in the knowledge that WE had our place!

Oh how we bragged about all you can be

Disguising the real attribute:

M O N EEE

Money and status and plenty of credit

That's how we did it, and goodness--they let it!

Now when the bills are all ready to pay

You are the ones that must carry the day

Carry the day for those who made the bet

Took all our savings, took what they could get!

Living like princes and duchess and Queens

Leaving the spill to those lower of means

Oh my dear daughters

If only I saw

The loves of my life would be clenched in a claw

Tighter and tighter that steel iron grip

Squeezes your future and bruises your lip

Forced to your knees as you watch them abuse

Realize too late that your rights are a ruse

A ruse to persuade you to just go along

Go take that ole job which they get for a song

And then do remember

If stuck in a rut

To all these old codgers

You're still just a slut

Misogyny Laid Bare

"A time in which women lost the love of their children" and "decided to become selfish, narcissistic, family-destroying whores"

Inhumane Stupidity


"A pregnant 16-year-old in the Dominican Republic died from complications of leukemia, according to CNN. The young woman was forced to wait nearly three weeks to begin chemotherapy to treat her disease as hospital officials initially refused to treat her fearing it could terminate her pregnancy. In the end she lost her life and the pregnancy, and may have died because of the delay in her treatment.

Under an amendment to the Dominican Republic's constitution which declares that "life begins at conception," abortion is banned, effectively for any reason. The girl's leukemia was diagnosed when she was just nine weeks pregnant."

Stand Up For Girls

In Parting

For my part, I blame the oh-so-smarts for telling the lie that "they are all the same".

They are not. If my daughter had only listened, she might not be so surprised that a gvt would dare tell her what to do with her body.


She is in for a very rude awakening. They will tell her what to do in all areas of her life.

My advice?

Think before you listen to the spin-weavers.

Many people in public service are wonderful beyond belief.

      Here you go for those who have trouble comprehending:

      Mainstream dems, and republicans, for that matter, like the status qou better than what Trump or Sanders are offering.

      Is that so hard to understand, or do you think your ideas are so far superior, you can’t fathom how stupid the majority is?

      Trump has a very small mind. Not much he’s interested in, other than making money and golf.

      He doesn’t think big, nor philosophically. He, Kushner, Putin, Saudi Arabia and Netanyahu are deciding for America.

      Anyone who thought he would drain the swamp.... really?

      He’s all about making money, no matter what.

      Thanks for your shortsightedness.

      You all “owned the libs”, tho. Left and right.

      Congrats.

      Remind me to ignore whatever you say from now on. Thank you, and have a good day.

      I’m sure our spooks are very smart, creative and brilliant.

      But so is the KGB (FSB).

      Ole Vlad has made it so he wins either way.

      1. Trump

      2. Sanders

      They’re both a win for him.

      And, as has been sort of happening.......the Republicans Trump people squeezed out of their own party, are joining forces with the Democrats who are being squeezed out by the Sanders gang.

      And Vlad is behind it all. Imo

      Trump party, Our Revolution......both backed by Russia.

      They’ve managed quite well to get a grip on our gvt.

      Someone....a professor somewhere, predicted that America would be sold off to other countries.....each owning a block of states.

      You can be sure Russia and China will be 2 of the owners.

      If Sanders manages to pull this off, get Biden removed.....

      I will once again proclaim,

      Senate dems want bail out to go to those who are laid off, and small businesses.

      I suppose when Netanyahu is done bombing, Jared can build more settlements.....

      The Arab league rejected the deal as well.

      Here’s the truth:

      “It's only those people who have a great deal of money in the market that are doing well. The rest of us working slobs are receiving the same pay while prices go up on everything.“

      That is the truth. And watch our taxes go up along with cuts in social security and Medicare to pay for it.

      “A growing number of GOP senators are now acknowledging that President Donald Trump may have leveraged US military aid to Ukraine in exchange for an announcement of investigations that could help him politically – but they contend that even that conduct does not warrant removal from office or hearing from additional witnesses.

      The party’s indifference seemed liberating. If Trump’s culpability is no longer relevant to his GOP acolytes, then the answer to every question could be effectively the same: “It doesn’t matter.”

      As of this morning, much of the Senate Republican conference has decided the smart move is to simply not care. The more Democrats point to evidence of Trump’s misconduct, the more GOP senators will reply, “So what?”

My dream ticket is Biden/Harris.... but who knows who it will be? I was pretty a-political during Clinton, but certainly he was a kind and jovial president....Didn’t wake up every day spitting nails. This Trump makes me want to change my mind on the second amendment.

      Anyway, I wish he would just go. He’s so busted. And I’m so tired of fighting the same fights year after year after year.

      Biden having a Republican as a running mate is a wonderful idea, but of course the person has to be honest and willing to put the voters first. I truly wish he would pick Hillary, then Bill would be there to help in the background. I remember well when he was president, I actually had some cash in my pocket. People crash him, but he was for America not Russia or China, so he liked women, every president liked women, including FDR. I guess this SO CALLED trial is stirring up my political muse, and I feel comfortable here. ( I wonder why lol ) Have a good one. Cheers.

      Nor did Ukraine hack the dnc, nor did Hillary ask them to.

      Biden’s actions with Ukraine were done at the behest of Obama, not himself, and if we are investigating kids getting jobs due to alleged nepotism, you can add Ivanka, Eric, Junior, Jared, Barr’s kid, Guilianis kid, and Toensings kid.

      I see this is going to be a repeat of 2016 on the dem side.....

      A dem is really questioning whether Biden is like Trump? Seriously?

      Is this a dem? I mean it. Justice dems and dems are two different beasts. Progressives and liberals, same.

      I will just say this: Sanders was an Independent, turned dem to run for prez.

      Warren was a Republican turned dem.

      Yes, I know, Hillary was Repub as a teenager.

      But Biden is a lifelong dem who always stuck to his values and beliefs.

      If the left goes on a rampage against Biden, like they did Hillary, you will get a huge blowback.

      You did enough damage the first time.

      Start your own party......or, I have even seen someone suggest dems leave the party it is becoming.

      This whole Susan Sarandon wing is bullshit. “Trump would be better than Hillary”.....

      Leave, then. Don’t Tea party the democrats, like trump did the republicans!

      Well how do you like that....more welfare for rich people. Those who always complain about fellow Americans ALWAYS have their hands out. And those of us who work, and supply your SS payments through our FICA tax, AND they have added a Medicare tax....are about to have OUR SS and Medicare destroyed by the person you put into power.

      And I’m speaking specifically to people here. How dare you complain about others. Look in the mirror you spoiled retirees!

      “Medicare Advantage plans have come under scrutiny for seeking higher payments from the government.

      By Reed Abelson

      Published Dec. 12, 2019

      Updated Dec. 13, 2019, 12:51 a.m. ET

      A government report released Thursday found health insurance companies had combed through patient charts to obtain billions of dollars of additional payments from the federal Medicare program.

      The report, from the federal inspector general’s office, examined payments billed by insurers for those covered by private Medicare Advantage plans, which are increasingly popular and heavily promoted by the Trump administration. The findings showed that insurers were adding on conditions like diabetes and even cancer, reporting that patients were sicker, to receive higher payments from Medicare.

      About 21 million people enrolled in these private plans in 2018, accounting for well over a third of those covered under the federal insurance program for those who are over 65 or have disabilities. Of the $711 billion spent last year on the Medicare program, $210 billion went to Medicare Advantage. Not only has the administration increased allocations for the private plans, it also has permitted them to offer more benefits — like telemedicine visits and transportation for medical appointments — to attract customers.

      Trump officials have heralded the administration’s efforts to expand the private plans as one of its most significant health care achievements. “What works in the Medicare program is Medicare Advantage — because plans are competing on the basis of cost and quality, driving toward value and increasing choice to customers.

      But Medicare Advantage plans have come under intensive scrutiny for their use of additional diagnoses to justify receiving higher payments from the government. The report cited one Medicare estimate that the program distributed $40 billion in overpayments from 2013 and 2016 to plans that included diagnoses that were not supported by a patient’s medical records. The Justice Department has brought several lawsuits against health plans for overbilling the government.”

      “Walsh, who has become a vocal critic of the president, wrote that he voted for Trump in 2016 not because he supported the Republican nominee but because “he wasn’t Hillary Clinton.”

      “But I soon realized that I couldn’t support him because of the danger he poses to the country, especially the division he sows at every chance, culminating a few weeks ago in his ugly, racist attack on four minority congresswomen,” Walsh wrote.

      “The fact is, Mr. Trump is a racial arsonist who encourages bigotry and xenophobia to rouse his base and advance his electoral prospects,” he added.

      Despite originally supporting the president's campaign, Walsh wrote that Trump has made him see “the worst and ugliest iteration of views I expressed for the better part of a decade.”

      In 2016, Walsh wrote that former President Obama “hates Israel” because "he has always been" a Muslim at heart.

      He said at the time that many Republican lawmakers and conservative commentators agree with his assessment of Obama’s religion but are afraid of publicly criticizing it.

      Now, Walsh wrote for the Times that “there's no place in our politics for personal attacks like that, and I regret making them.”

      Funny, 2016 may have been when I was banned for being anti Semitic....even tho I’m not. Just against the occupation of Palestine.

      Always point the finger of blame, never accept responsibility. Money uber alles.

      “According to UN customs data compiled by NISAT, a research group, the United States is by far the largest exporter of military arms to Mexico. The sums are not trivial. The US has exported more than $300 million worth of “military style” weapons to Mexican authorities since the 1960s; more than half of those sales have been since the year 2000. Top exporters following the US are Italy, Belgium, France and Israel, some of the world’s largest manufacturers.

      These firearms include crew-serviced machine guns, assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenade launchers, heavy explosives and related munitions, parts and accessories. However, the US and others also sell vast quantities of “civilian-style” weapons, including shotguns, handguns, and related ammunition.“
