Merry Christmas!

So, after all the thrashing and banging and cheap theater, the next one-time stimulus check will be a whopping-ass means-tested $600. For all the people who are sick and dying of COVID19, who are about to lose their jobs and homes, SIX HUNDRED DAMN DOLLARS.

Mind you, they practically broke their goddamn necks to approve a $740bn war budget, but for everybody out here sick, dying, unemployed, homeless…? SIX HUNDRED DAMN DOLLARS.

Luckily, we all have plenty of “understanding” to pay for our rent, groceries, utilities and COVID19 shots.

Pelosivirus

By mike flugennockFriday - February 28th, 2020Categories: 2020 Election, Health Care, Party Animals, coronavirus

I’m going to just come right out and say it: fuck Nancy Pelosi straight to Hell.

People all over the world are getting sick — many dying — from coronavirus, and now that we’ve got some cases in the US, Capitol Hill is finally getting off its rich, bloated ass and taking a whack at doing something about a response. In classic Pelosi fashion, the House Speaker babbled about making a vaccine “affordable”. AFFORDABLE.

Never mind that many Americans may die simply because they can’t afford to be tested, let alone vaccinated; the typical response from Queen Nancy is some tepid blathering about making a vaccine “affordable”, whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean. If the goddamn vaccine is going to be developed with tax money, then it should be free.

Say it with me, kids: fuck “affordable”; make it FREE.

End of the Trail

By mike flugennockWednesday - December 11th, 2019Categories: 2020 Election, Health Care, Party Animals, elections

Looks like the Liz “I Have A Plan” Warren campaign has really hit the skids since introducing her convoluted, Rube Goldberg-style fake-ass Medicare For All plan. Anybody who knows shinola from that other stuff knows what real Medicare For All looks like, and Warren’s mess isn’t it.

And needless to say, that whole claiming Native American ancestry thing hasn’t exactly done wonders for her, either.
