Stock Market Keeps Going Up and Up and Up......

Protectionism will ruin the economy…..
Record close…..after record close……after record close……after record close……after record close.
Everyone hates Donald. You hate him. You family hates him. Your friends hate him. The media hates him.
But……… if you look in your 401K you will notice lots of extra money in there. You don’t need to acknowledge it. Just smile and go back to trashing the Donald. He won’t hold it against you. He has very thick skin.

The Demise Of ObamaCare....

When the obituary is written on Obamacare the death will be blamed on Donald Trump and the Republicans.
That is good news for Barack Obama.
But the reality is Obamacare is actually dying under the weight of its own poor design.

Trump has not done anything yet and companies are fleeing Obamacare. Humana is leaving. United Healthcare has already left in multiple states.
Obama care meant people cannot be turned down for coverage. But health insurance companies have no obligation to take part in Obama care to begin with.
While insurance companies enjoyed the fact that private citizens were forced to buy their products…….They did not appreciate having to actually cover sick people.
Health insurance companies do not want to pay anything (ever) let alone cover the payments for chronically ill people. Turns out it is better to just drop out than do that. So off they head to the exits.
That means less competition and even higher prices. All bad news.
If Obama just did what he said and provided a public option (which would have competed and driven down rates) Obama Care would not currently be in cardiac arrest.
Because Obama care did not fix the underlying problems is why the end is coming soon.
When that happens the Republicans will all get blamed. I am sure that makes Obama very happy.

Obama Set The Bar High.....

Hundreds of people.......HUNDREDS!!!!!!
Let's get everyone all riled up about hundreds of people. (hundreds with an H)
Remember when Barack Obama deported 2.5 million people. Remember that? 2.5 million (million with an M)
Let's do the math. 2.5 million ÷ 8 years ÷ 12 months comes out to 26,041 people a month. Every month.
What Trump is doing is amateur hour compared to what Obama did.
If you dont like people being deported this is an improvement. People should be thrilled.
Yet you would never know the reality by reading the hysteria in the news.
And remember...... when Obama was running 26,000 people out of the country (every month) nobody cared. Nobody. No headlines. No outrage. No protests. NOTHING!!!!!
With Obama it was all love all the time. But enough about that. You get back to being outraged.

US NAVY RUNNING OUT OF JETS...

Year 16 of never ending war + The piece of SH*T F-35, (which has horded all the money and delivered NOTHING of value) = A US Military that can't do the job and is currently in big trouble.
Exactly what I have been telling you over and over and over. We f*cked this up royally and now we are totally screwed.
62% of the Navy's F/A 18s are unable to fly and 53% of the Navy's total air fleet is grounded.
F/A 18 was designed to have a lifespan of roughly 6,000 flight hours.
Today, jets are being stretched to fly between 8,000 and 9,000 hours to fulfill mission expectations as a result of fewer operational aircraft, budget restrictions and delays to the fifth-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
Only a total jack ass would take all the eggs and put them in a single basket. Let's have only one plane for every branch of the military.
We will take all the money and spend all the time on one single plane which totally sucks.
That will end well.

The New Intel Plant....Thanks Donald....

1 New Plant…….7 Billion dollars invested in America ………3000 additional jobs………….Thank you Mr. Trump.
The factory, which will complement two other factories that Intel has in Chandler, Ariz., has been under consideration for several years. But Mr. Krzanich said that the tax cuts and deregulatory policies pushed by Mr. Trump had prompted the company to move forward with its plans.
The new facility will build a new generation of chips with ultra-small circuitry and employ 3,000 additional people at its peak, Intel said. “This factory will produce the most powerful computer chips on the planet,” Mr. Krzanich said.
When he is not pissing everyone off about everything there is to piss people off about he is actually doing what he said……Creating Jobs.

Fukushima Radiation Is Spiking....

Spiking radiation levels at Fukushima......

A single dose of one sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea

5 sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month

a single dose of 10 sieverts would prove fatal within weeks.

The recent reading, described by some experts as “unimaginable”, is far higher than the previous record of 73 sieverts an hour

Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said atmospheric readings as high as 530 sieverts (WOW!!!)  an hour had been recorded inside the containment vessel of reactor No 2

Tepco also said image analysis had revealed a hole in metal grating beneath the same reactor’s pressure vessel. The one-metre-wide hole was probably created by nuclear fuel that melted and then penetrated the vessel

A remote-controlled robot that Tepco intends to send into the No 2 reactor’s containment vessel is designed to withstand exposure to a total of 1,000 sieverts, meaning it would survive for less than two hours before malfunctioning.

Tepco and its network of partner companies at Fukushima Daiichi have yet to identify the location and condition of melted fuel in the three most seriously damaged reactors. (IT HAS ONLY BEEN 6 YEARS.......WHAT IS THE RUSH) Removing it safely represents a challenge unprecedented in the history of nuclear power

Donald bought 90 More F-35's.....Why?

Oh Donald……This is not what you were supposed to do.
You were NOT supposed to buy 90 more planes. You were supposed to cancel the program.
Fine….. you saved some money on the 90 planes. Yippee.
That doesn’t change the fact that the planes suck. From front to back. From top to bottom. These planes are sh*t. They don’t work. They aren’t reliable.
Even if they were reliable (and functioning at 100%) they still suck. They are slow. They are not maneuverable. They have never seen a day in action (ever) nor will they...... because…..say it with me……THEY SUCK.
Stop sinking money into this bottomless pit. Cancel the program and build a new plane that doesn’t suck. Build it with two engines. Build it without all the gimmicks which all don’t work.
