Wooo! Was I watching “WrestleMania,” WWE Wednesday Night “SmackDown,” or the democrat debate?!

adebate 1

adebate 5a

adebate 6

Like WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) superstar “Road Dogg” Jesse James says, “Oh, you didn’t know? You’re a$$ better call somebodyyyyy!”

And the democrats who should’ve “called somebody” were Michael Bloomberg and Amy Klobuchar.

adebate 10

Bloomberg should have called 911 and Klobuchar should have taken a page from “Who wants to be a Millionaire” and “asked the audience” or “phoned a friend!”

adebate 8

According to Mary Anne Marsh [Mary Anne Marsh is a Democrat political analyst and a principal at Dewey Square Group in Boston where she provides strategic counsel for Fortune 100 companies, non-profits and political campaigns.] for Fox News, “In fierce Democratic presidential debate, 1 winner and 5 losers.”

Ms. Marsh’s bio indicates that she is an extremely biased liberal, and I would argue the democrats had no winners in this debate.  The only real winner here was President Trump!

adebate 7

I felt her overall take on the debate, however, was pretty accurate.

“Multibillionaire Michael Bloomberg landed in Las Vegas like a highly anticipated show on the Strip. But when he took to the stage with five competitors for the Democratic presidential nomination Wednesday night, their debate immediately became an Ultimate Fighting Championship [UFC] match.”

“Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., landed the most blows and won the night [This is debatable. I would say she wasn’t really attacked by anyone because none of them feel she is someone to worry about anymore!]. Warren would not be ignored or denied [This means the debate moderators failed to stop her from being a blabber mouth and time hog.] Warren flattened Bloomberg out of the gate using his own words against the former New York City mayor and he never recovered. As a result, voters got to see the real Warren, who was the front-runner last fall. And they saw the real Bloomberg, not the filtered one seen on paid TV ads and in social media.”

Have you realized yet that Ms. Marsh is an Elizabeth Warren fan?

“Warren’s strong performance helped her at a time when she needs it most and hurt Bloomberg so badly that he may not recover.”

This I agree with.  The whole world saw that Michael “The Emperor” Bloomberg has no clothes!  He was unmasked as a fraud, a hack, and not ready for prime time.

In Marsh’s opinion, “There was one winner [Warren] and five losers at the end of the debate – Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont; former Vice President Joe Biden; Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; and Bloomberg, who turned out to be the biggest loser of all.”

“With Bloomberg standing to her right Warren landed a left to the jaw with a shattering exchange using his own words about women against him. She then used his nondisclosure agreements, the stop-and-frisk tactic employed by police primarily against minorities when he was mayor, and his vast fortune estimated at more than $60 billion against him too.”

“Bloomberg’s performance was a disaster. He was not the Bloomberg of his ads in this debate – and that’s now a big problem for him.”

“Warren exposed the real Michael Bloomberg and it was not a pretty picture.”

“It was Warren’s relentless challenge to Bloomberg on a host of issues – including his treatment of women who worked for him and his refusal to release them from nondisclosure agreements – as well as his treatment of people of color with his stop-and-frisk policy.”

“Bloomberg’s attempts to apologize and explain only made the situation worse. His apology came off as more about convenience than sincerity – and that will register with voters too.”

“Finally, Bloomberg also sounded a lot like President Trump when asked about releasing his tax returns, raising issues about his lack of transparency.”

“Sanders, the self-described democratic socialist who represents Vermont was repeatedly questioned about his lack of transparency regarding his medical records, his recent heart attack and the cost of his “Medicare-for-all” plan.”

Mayor Pete “Buttigieg is the leader in delegates at this early stage from his strong finish in Iowa and New Hampshire. He used the debate to land a few blows on Sanders, with whom he’s locked in a delegate fight.”

“The former mayor also hit Klobuchar, who he is competing with for moderate voters…,” and they “… had a number of exchanges in their fight for moderate voters.”

I particularly liked when Mayor Pete referred to Klobuchar’s previous inability to name the president of Mexico, even though she is on trade and immigration committees in the Senate.

Her response was, “Are you mocking me?” and “Are you calling me dumb?” Obviously attempting put Mayor Pete on the defensive while trying to gain some sympathy for herself.

I would say, “If the shoe fits, wear it, Amy!”

Bam!

adebate 2

Former Vice-President “Biden did nothing to help himself. He looked like a tourist in Las Vegas rather than someone who should own the stage.”

Ha!

“Biden did little if anything to reassure voters he’s the best one to take on Trump or stem his slide in the polls. And that’s more bad news for Biden in this race.”

Bloomberg did manage to land a blow on Bernie, however, when he said, “Sanders, the best known socialist over here, happens to be a millionaire with three houses.”

Boom!

adebate 3

The truth hurts, right, Bernie?

The truth hurts in general for all of these democrat candidates.

And that’s the truth!

Wham!

adebate 4

I’m actually looking forward to the next democrat debate.

I’m sure Mini-Mike Bloomberg can’t say the same!

Is it really a “right” to have crappy health care?

I suppose technically it is.

It seems that “Medicare for all” is all the rage among democrats.

medicare 3

If you listen to the democrat presidential candidates, you would think that people without health care was a national crisis.

Have you ever seen anyone turned away from an emergency room, insurance or not?

In addition to that…, the truth is:

90% of Americans are covered by some sort of health care plan (Private plans, private plans through employers, VA, Medicare…, even Obamacare!

5% choose not to be covered by a health care plan.

That leaves only 5% that are truly without health care coverage.

Most of the democrat presidential candidates rally around the cry that, “Health care is a human right!”

The truth is the democrats are “fake news.”

medicare 7

The truth is the democrats don’t care about anyone’s rights.

The truth is the democrats really don’t care if you have health care coverage or not.

medicare 1

The truth is the democrats want government to take over the health care system because the truth is they want the government to take over everything!

So…, let’s get this straight.

In order to make sure that the 5% who don’t have coverage get coverage:

… the democrats want to destroy the current system that 90% of us are using?

…the democrats want the 2.7 million people who currently work in the insurance industry to lose their jobs?

…the democrats expect all of us, who do pay taxes, to pay considerably more taxes to fund their socialized and nationalized health care fiasco?

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know is soooo efficient and customer oriented?

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know is soooo cost effective?  We’ve all heard about the bargains the Pentagon has gotten on their $435 hammers and their $640 toilet seats!  Get ready for the $50 Q-tip!

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know are doing such a good job in regards to immigration laws, in regards to handling the abortion issue, in regards to funding social security, in regards to homelessness, in regards to city, state and federal debt, in regards to crime and violence, in regards to illegal drugs and drug abuse.  Well…, you get the idea.

… the democrats are willing to turn over the administration of everyone’s health care insurance to the government, whom we all know will be abused and wasteful.  Can you imagine the current Medicare system abuse times ten?!

Times 20?!!

Times 30?!!!

President Trump believes, and I believe, that a more intelligent, “holistic” plan for improving the health care system would include adding a “safety net” system for the 5% without health care, laws making insurance processing easier, more transparent, and more user friendly, programs aimed at making medications more affordable, laws to address excessive medical liability awards, covering pre-existing conditions, and finding ways to make health insurance coverage more competitive…, as opposed to just lazily dumping the whole thing onto the government’s lap and living with whatever they deem is acceptable for us.

According to Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN, “Medicare, which has been around since 1965, is the government-run health insurance program that covers all Americans 65 and older and is funded by taxpayers. A portion taken out of our paychecks for Social Security goes toward Medicare to cover most services like hospital stays and doctors’ visits.”

What did people do prior to 1965?  The American people didn’t pay any federal income taxes prior to 1913 either.  How did we and the country survive?  Seriously…, I’m asking?

“People on Medicare can also choose to get additional coverage from Medicare-approved private insurers to cover other services such as dental, vision and prescription drugs.”

“Our health care system could best be described as a hybrid. About half the money comes from the private sector: people who have private insurance through their employers or who are self-insured. The other half is from the public sector: federal, state and local governments paying into Medicare and Medicaid.”

Most proposed “Medicare for all” plans would provide fairly comprehensive coverage, as Medicare does now, all with no copays, premiums or deductibles, they say.

Herein lies the rub.

The democrats call it “free” health care with “no copays, premiums or deductibles,” but we all know nothing is “free.”

These politicians are so generous with OUR money!

I’m sure the increase in our taxes would more than equal our copays, premiums and deductibles, as we would not only be covering our own costs, but all of those who don’t pay any taxes as well.

medicare 2

As with most other democrat schemes, it’s a good deal for those accustomed to living off of government handouts, and that’s about it.

medicare 9

Of course, the extremely wealthy and most politicians would be exempt from this system, designed for the rest of us peons, just as in the case of Obamacare.

Why are about half of the American people willing to accept a crappy health care system, while the elites just go on living their elite lifestyles?

Because about half of us are either too ignorant to know any better, gullible enough to believe the socialist fairy tales they tell us, too lazy to care either way, or we’re originally from a country where we’re used to this type of treatment, so this is totally acceptable and familiar, and we’re just happy to be here.

medicare 10

It’s difficult combating the waves of liberal misinformation when the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” acts as a co-conspirator rather than a “watch dog” for the American people.

medicare 5

Remember…, stay thirsty my friends, but don’t drink the liberal Kool-Aide!
