Y’all Even the Cover Band Quit

January 16, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I am kinda tickled to be the one to let you know that even the Bruce Springsteen cover band has quit the Trump inauguration.

The B-Street band pulled out.

Wanna know why?

“We felt that we had to make it known that we didn’t want to seem disrespectful, in any way, shape or form, to Bruce and his music and his band,” Forte says. “I don’t want to upset them. We owe everything to him and our gratitude and respect to the band is imperative above all else. It became clear to us that this wasn’t working and we just had to do what we thought was the right thing to do and that was to pull out.”

Okay, so maybe Clint Eastwood and Gary Busey can quickly form a band.  Otherwise, there’s not going to be much dancing at the balls.

 

Filling the Swamp

January 16, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

Well, well, well, Trump’s choice for Director of Health and Human Services seems to be one of the bigger alligators in the swamp.  And, damn, that animal is plenty hungry.

Price, as a congressman, purchases shares in a company that makes stuff of hip replacement operations, Zimmer Biomet.

Less than a week after the transaction, the Georgia Republican congressman introduced the HIP Act, legislation that would have delayed until 2018 a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services regulation that industry analysts warned would significantly hurt Zimmer Biomet financially once fully implemented.

Not only that but …

The Wall Street Journal reported last month that he traded roughly $300,000 in shares over the past four years in health companies while pursuing legislation that could impact them.

And then because alligators have really big appetites, Price needed more money so he sent a letter to CMS asking for a delay for the implementation of the new policy. And then …

Two days after the letter, Zimmer Biomet’s PAC cut Price’s reelection committee a check worth $1,000, according to campaign finance filings.

Three months after he introduced the bill, the company’s PAC cut Price’s campaign committee another $1,000 check, according to records.

Bless Trump’s heart, he had to look really hard to find a Republican congressvarmint with that big an appetite for self-enrichment.

His hearing starts Wednesday and if the Democrats don’t walk out of there with a new pair of alligator boots, I’ll be very disappointed.

Price wants to reform Medicare, y’all.  Under his plan, from now on, you don’t get health care until you send Price $1,000.  In return, he’ll send you a gift card for $100 to pay for your medical expenses.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Mike Pence: Clueless in DeeCee

There’s this right here breaking news today.

 

 

And far more likely, there’s no contact between the Trump campaign and Mike Pence.

Fix It, Daddy

So I think we have a slight problem.

There’s a tiff between Congressman John Lewis and alleged President-Elect Donald Trump.

Reince Priebus says the whole thing is just awful and it needs fixing.

Reince Priebus tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Obama should “step up” and “call it what it is – it’s wrong what is happening, it’s wrong how some of these Democrats are treating President-elect Trump.”

So, Reince needs Obama’s help?  Yeah, I am certain that Trump can count on President Obama to help him with this illegitimate president thing.  After all, Donald Trump personally gave President Obama a whole lot of experience with that.

So I heard that the Ringling Brothers, Barnum, and Bailey’s Circus is closing down after 168 years.  They knew they couldn’t compete with the Trump administration.

Thanks to Carl for the heads up.

It is a sad day indeed when our alleged president-elect shows far more respect to Putin than he does to Congressman John Lewis, the conscious of the congress.

Yesterday, John Lewis said that he did not consider Donald Trump to be a legitimate president.  You know, the same thing Donald Trump said about Barack Obama for eight years.

In the wee hours of this morning, Trump responded …

 

 

He’s gonna burn in hell, y’all.  A gold star mom and dad, Meryl Streep, and now John Lewis on the weekend of Martin Luther King Day….

 

 

Look, even if you think he’s a legitimate president, you have to admit that’s he’s a sumbitch.

Thanks to Bubba for the heads up, by slamming his coffee mug on the table so hard this morning that there’s coffee splatter on the ceiling.
