$600 Billion, But….

$600 Billion Annual Spending

Annually we spend in excess of $600 billion on our military to protect us from foreign invaders at the same time the GOP is not willing to spend $20 billion to keep millions of us from dying of treatable diseases and ailments. I don’t know maybe it is just me but I don’t see an ounce of logic in that fact.  For one thing, we have not been invaded by more than a handful of discontents since 1812.

Yes, I admit that by some fluke in structural design a handful of USA haters managed to kill three thousand or so of us some sixteen years ago , but ten times that number of people will likely die annually because of denial of adequate health care from the proposed TrumpCare lack of funding. I don’t know but this just doesn’t make any sense to me. Somehow or another there seems to be zero empathy, or maybe “brother’s care”  in this fact.

Does anyone but me see the dichotomy between the words of Jesus and current Evangelical actions?

Maybe, its because of my Aspie traits that I just can’t understand this at all.  Maybe I am just too logical in my thoughts?  What do you guys think?

Inside the Loony Bin Beltway – So. So.

Banner- Looney Bin  I have to admit here that I am disengaging from the beltway loony bin more and more as each day passes.  The cable news outlets are now erased from my satellite lists. I now get my network news totally from the PBS Newshour and the Sunday Fareed Sakara program. Yeah, I know he is on cable news but he is really different!  He simply says things others don’t have the courage to say.

So, here goes on what I know about this last week.  Finally, the dark side of Bill O’Rielly has taken him down. He is such a nasty person and now we find that he is also a sexual predator nasty person.  Of course he will get his $25 million golden parachute, hopefully he will use it to buy some small island and we will never see him again.  Hopefully…

I see they are again beating a dead horse with the GOP version of TrumpCare. Even if they can get a few of those holdout radcons to sign on it will never go anywhere in the Senate so let’s not get too worked up about it.

Other than these things it is totally saber rattling inside the beltway as far as I am concerned.  Here we are approaching the 100-day mark of the Trump Administration and virtually nothing has been accomplished. But we all knew that he is pretty much all wind so that is not surprising.  He wants to do taxes next but doesn’t want to show us how he managed to pay zero federal income taxes for the last decade or so.  It is nice to hear even those on the Republican side say that he must show us his taxes before they will support him changing the rules.

Given that so little of anything resembling “meaningful” is happening inside the beltway I don’t know how often I will be making these loony bin reports. We will just play it by ear so to speak. If anyone wants to chime in with their thoughts go at it.. 🙂
