There’s much to ponder

I was thinking; If Leftists don’t believe in biological gender then why do they march for women’s rights?

I was thinking; If women do the same job for less money, why do companies hire men to do the same job for more money?

I was thinking; Since only 11 million people have ObamaCare, how will 24 million people die if it is repealed? Will an additional 13 million people be randomly shot?

I was thinking; We should stop calling them all “Entitlements.” Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC, ad nausea, are not Entitlements. They are taxpayer-funded handouts and shouldn’t be called Entitlements at all. But Social Security and Veterans Benefits are Entitlements because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

01515-thinking-cap-ideas-vectorI was thinking; If you rob a bank in a Sanctuary City, is it illegal, or is it just an Undocumented Withdrawal?

I was thinking; After the London “Lone Wolf” terrorist attack, government officials arrested at least eight other “Lone Wolves” who had conspired with the original “Lone Wolf” in planning the “Lone Wolf” attack.

Why do they tell us even though all involved are Mohammedans, you can be assured that the “Lone Wolf” attack has nothing at all to do with Islam, just like the other 1,000-plus “Lone Wolf” attacks by Mohammedans, are completely unassociated with Islam?

I was thinking; Why is each ISIS attack now a reaction to Trump policies, but all ISIS attacks during Obama’s term were due to Climate Change and a plea for jobs?

I was thinking; If Mohammedans want to run away from a Mohammedan country, does that mean they are Islamophobic?

I was thinking; If Democrats don’t want foreigners involved in our elections, why do they think it’s all right for illegals to vote?

I was thinking; Is the DNC is mad at Russia because it “thinks” they are trying to manipulate our elections, or because Russia is exposing that the DNC is manipulating our elections?

I was thinking; How did the Russians get Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC to steal the Primary from Bernie Sanders? How did Russia get Donna Brazile to leak debate questions to Hillary Clinton in advance of the debates?

I was thinking; Why is it that Democrats think Super Delegates are fine, but they have a problem with the Electoral College?

I was thinking; If Donald Trump deleted all of his emails, wiped his server with Bleachbit and destroyed all of his phones with a hammer, would the Mainstream Media suddenly lose all interest in the story and declare him innocent?

I was thinking; If Hillary’s speeches cost $250,000 an hour, how come no one shows up to her free speeches?

I was thinking; If you don’t want the FBI involved in elections, don’t nominate someone who’s being investigated by the FBI.

(Note: I did not write the above. I found it in the comment section of an online news website. It was left by someone who uses the moniker Brokemexifornia. But he says he did not write it either. Someone emailed it to him. So it’s anonymous.

(The only significant editing I did was to change Muslim to my preferred term, Mohammedan, and to change Liberal to Leftist. I use Mohammedan because it galls PC people, and I use Leftist instead of Liberal because it’s accurate.

(The sole bone I have to pick with the piece is the common claim that Social Security payments are simply the return of money paid into the account by the recipient during his working life. This is true for some people. Those who live a long time after retirement and/or retired early like me, often are getting handouts in their latter years, i.e. welfare.)

  1. I agree, that was very thoughty. The answers to the ponderables, in my mind, all have to do with the intelligence level and the nervous systems of the voters who believe. We just jumped a line from Medicare by signing up with a “concierge doctor.” He has been our primary for a number of years, and he decided that the multi-practitioner service he has been a part of would eventually kill him before he could collect those retirement entitlements before he would get there with a roster of 2,000 patients. So he’s going solo with a sign-up agreement with 200 of his patients, first come, first served. This was done for his benefit but will also be for our benefit because primary-care doctors north of the border are going the way of the dodo. Medicare has made some of their carefully thought out (sarcasm) changes to its benefits that will make it mandatory for patients to get a referral to see a specialist from a primary. No referral, no claims paid by Medicare.

    One has to be quick to grab a primary-care physician because they will become fewer and further apart, choosing specialties over primary care. Current practices are full to the overflow and Medicare insurance is undesirable to the new doctors. The concierge practice charges a flat annual fee for all you can “eat” and there will be no insurance claims. So we give up the entitlement to that from Medicare, but all other services currently acceptable will be paid (x-rays, lab tests, scans) by Medicare. We can call him anytime day or night. He will see us in case of an emergency admission (a car wreck, for instance) and he will make a house call in some cases. I like it.

    1. Carole: When I read about U.S. healthcare, I thank my lucky stars that I got out of there in the nick of time, if you can call 18 years ago the nick of time.

      Interesting concept that concierge thing. If your doctor gets 200 sign-ups, for instance, he can pull in $200,000 a year by charging each patient $1,000 a year, $83 a month. From what I’ve heard, lots of Americans pay that and far more for coverage via ObamaCare. Clever. And win-win. I like it.

      1. This doctor has made his fortune, I’m guessing, so he’s willing to take primary care back to the old days and no Medicare paperwork. He was a magna cum laude graduate and has a Phi Beta Kappa key so I’d say he studied this process plenty before he made this move. And he’s still young enough that he won’t retire real soon.

    That one above was by far the funniest.

    I wish some enterprising news reporter (I know, oxymoron) would grab that list and start asking those questions to people on camera. It’d be hysterical to watch.

    And I’ll add one:
    I was thinking: if Rod Rosenstein is a key witness in the various investigations going on, why hasn’t he recused himself? Seems like a conflict of interest.

  3. I’ll agree with you that there’s a difference between leftists and liberals. The Democratic Party of Schumer, Pelosi, and Clinton is no more the party of FDR than the Republicans are the party of Lincoln.

  4. As I started reading your piece, I was immediately brought to remember how Andy Rooney (RIP) viewed the world. I wonder how he would be handling today’s political deluge of material. Then again, logic and civil discussion are absent and have been for a while.
