Swamp Fox Solution for Healthcare

Posted by Troy on 26th July 2019 in Uncategorized

A lot of people would say that detractors of Obamacare do not offer any solutions.  Here is my solution.

If you are below the poverty level, you are on Medicaid.

We then set up the baseline “government plan.”  This plan covers issues from birth or due to genetic defect that may manifest after birth.  It covers 1 wellness check.  It covers pregnancies.  I covers emergency medical intervention.  What it does not cover are things like cancer, cardiovascular surgery, hip and knee replacements, and other such medical treatments which are very costly.

Cancer and other specialty insurance could be purchased out of pocket.

The government plan is available across state lines.  The plan is subsidized and phased out to make this basic coverage affordable much in the way the exchange insurance works currently.

On the supply-side, We use our immigration policies to poach providers from around the world.  We also create a new class of medical provider that will have very limited training that can do the basics like perform basic tests, handle stitches and other minor proceedures, and make referrals.  This creates a very cost effective first point of contact for those needing medical attention.

This program would affordably provide medical coverage to American citizens.

The Strange Case of Jeremy Jones

Posted by Troy on 25th July 2019 in Uncategorized

Jones is a 22 year-old black male living in Chicago.  He was targeted by a police officer who was convinced Jones was guilty of the murder of a white teen girl.  The officer paid a know criminal to file a tip that Jones was covered in blood the night of the murder.

Jones, fearing life in prison, asked his mother to lie and testify that she was with him the night of the murder.  She refused and told the truth.

After investigating, it was determined that Jones was innocent and that he had been targeted by a crooked cop.  Jones was sentenced, however, to five years in prison on the charge of obstruction of justice for asking his mother to lie.

If you think this is ridiculous, this is what Democrats want to do to Trump.

Long live the Constitution!

Epstein

Posted by Troy on 11th July 2019 in Uncategorized

So this guy trafficked young girls, and got 10 MONTHS in jail and could leave for the day.  That this basically means is that he was protected by very powerful individuals.  I suspect that he videoed or photographed his “friends” and used them as leverage.  What I am unsure of is if the blackmail was the source of his wealth or just a means to protect his own twisted sexual appetite.

Why the Helsinki Summit Ticked Me Off

Posted by Troy on 16th July 2018 in Uncategorized

Or more appropriately, why the coverage of it ticked me off.  What it proved, beyond a shadow of the doubt, is that Trump can’t win with these people.

Just days before meeting with Putin, Rod Rosenstein comes out with a list of indictments against Russians for “meddling in our election.”  Immediately, there are calls for Trump to cancel the meeting, or at the very least, not to meet one on one.  If he cancelled the trip, it would be “proof” that Trump had colluded with Putin.  If he did not meet one on one, it signals weakness to Putin and it also would surely lead to leaks unless that person was beyond reproach–however, anyone that trustworthy for Trump would have been utterly dismissed by the people who demand others be present.  Finally, if he met with Putin one on one, then people would say that Trump was committing treason behind closed doors.  Trump can’t win.

Putin says, “I wanted Trump to win,” and the Left goes nuts.  Ah!  Proof!  Of course, we are supposed to believe that Putin is being honest when he says he wanted Trump to win, but he is lying when he says that Russia didn’t interfere in the election.  Putin’s trustworthiness, as with everything, is determined in relation to if it helps or hurts Trump.  With the media on his side, there’s no way Putin can lose.  No matter what he does or says, the US media will do his dirty work by sowing division in our country.  Meanwhile, Trump can’t win.

People ask him, “Mr. Trump!  What are you going to do about the Crimea?”  Where were these helpful souls in 2014?  You know which President should have done something?  Obama.  You know what multinational organization should have done something?  NATO.  Do you know what either of those did?  NOTHING.  Maybe if they started mobilizing troops and planes to the Ukraine and Crimea in 2014, Putin would have abandoned his plans, but now he occupies the Crimea.  The Crimea is gone.  The only thing that will get it back at this point is a hot war.  The moment came, and Obama chickened out.  NATO/Europe, in their typical fashion, appeased instead of fought.  It is Germany invading Czechoslovakia all over again.  So, if Trump demands it back, Putin’s going to say “No.”  Then what?  I suppose there are two options, Trump goes home looking weak as hell, or he mobilizes the military, gets us into a hot war, and basically starts WWIII (or at the very least allows his critics to call him a warmonger).  Trump can’t win.

Gowdy says in his shrill, annoying voice (I used to be 90/10 with this guy and now I’m down to 60/40 with the stupid crap that comes outta his mouth…) “The first thing Trump needs to do when he gets over there is demand Russia hand over these 12 nationals.”  Okay, to what end?  Putin will say, “No.”  Then what?  Trump looks weak.  This is the same thing that happened when Jeb demanded Trump apologize to his wife.  You never demand something if there is any doubt about getting it.  There’s actually no doubt about this… PUTIN WILL NOT TURN OVER THESE PEOPLE.  So Trump looks weak and gets nothing in return other than elevating Putin and giving his critics more ammo to ridicule him with.  Trump can’t win.

Then everyone says that he should have confronted Putin about the meddling.  Well, that’s great.  The more Trump shouts about Russian meddling, the more he damages his own presidency by basically saying “I was not duly elected!”  To which he was, but perception is everything.  It’s also silly when every country is meddling in pretty much every election.  Obama tried like hell to get Netanyahu defeated in Israel, and that’s our ally!  I mean, I expect enemies to sabotage and backstab, but when friends do it, that’s despicable.  It’s also laughable since Hillary injected herself into the Russian election trying to get Putin defeated.  Or as Chris McDaniel put it, “The democrat stance is that 12 Russians swung the election but that 12 million illegals have no effect whatsoever.”  But again!  To what end?  “You meddled in our election.”  “No, we didn’t.”  I mean, does that just devolve into a “liar liar pants on fire/I know you are but what am I” playground-style fight?  Does Putin get to play the high-road and declare that he had Trump over in good faith and Trump insulted him to his face?   Do we go to war over this or something?  Trump can’t win.

And that’s what ticks me off about the entire thing.  Nothing he could have done would have sufficed.  Everything was a trap one way or another.  Based on this, his Helsinki trip was basically perfect just because it wasn’t an unmitigated disaster.  More and more, the media has become the boy that cried “Hitler!”  75% of the country has stopped listening to them entirely.  The other 25% take their daily dose day after day and get more wound-up and rabid.  This cannot end well.

Long Live the Constitution!

What I hope Trump teaches liberals

Posted by Troy on 26th January 2017 in Uncategorized

Harry Reid got rid of the filibuster because the Republicans got in the way of Obama’s dream.  Now that Trump is President, they decry the lack of the filibuster and want to bring it back.

When President Obama signed executive order after executive order, liberals cheered and defended it because Republicans were getting in the way of Obama’s dream.  Now that Trump is in charge and signing executive order after executive over, they are going nuts with worry and scorn.

Finally, liberals talk about how Trump is Hitler.  Trump will NEVER be Hitler.  Know why?  because Hitler got rid of the guns first.  As long as the Second Amendment stands, there can never be a Hitler in America.

In short, I hope that Trump’s Presidency teaches liberals the wisdom of the Founding Fathers.  There was a reason why they made the system to prevent sweeping change.  There was a reason why the Constitution is concerned with what the government cannot do to you.  There’s a reason why the the Constitution is a document restraining governmental power and protecting the individual’s rights.  It does not empower government.  It restricts government.  It doesn’t tell you what the government will do FOR you, it tells you what the government CAN’T to do to you.

I doubt that they will learn these lessons, but I hope these are the lessons liberals take away from the Trump presidency.  It’s a vain hope, but it’s a hope.

Long Live the Constitution!

Why I want Trump to Win

Posted by Troy on 26th October 2016 in Uncategorized

Amy Schumer shamed a Trump supporter on stage for not being able to say why he was voting for Trump.  She didn’t accept, “Hillary’s a felon” as a valid reason.  Of course, you are supposed to have a reason to be FOR a candidate than just be opposed to another.  Although, I truly hazard that no Hillary supporter could actually give you a real reason past some vague, “First woman president… she’d make women equal… something something…dark side…something something…complete.”  But I will play her game.

First, I don’t believe the allegations.  I have my reason for not believing the allocations, but let’s just baseline that.  However, even if true, the other option is Bill Clinton that most definitely abused women.  I also truly believe he raped a woman based on her testimony.  You can say “That was Bill, not Hillary,” but let me ask you…If your husband raped a woman, would you DESTROY the woman he raped?  Hillary did.  So she’s kinda one step below dog shit in my book.

Here’s the thing: I believe Trump loves America.  His entire life he has spoken with great love of the country and great anger at the foolishness of our leaders.  This has not changed.  I also believe that he is a deal maker.  I believe that he will bring sides together, try to work out a deal where the main goal is accomplished, but where both parties can walk away satisfied (this is the heart of commerce, of which he has been a part of his entire life).  Also, I love the man’s energy and dogged determination.  Anyone else would have rolled over and died by now, but he just keeps fighting and fighting.  I guarantee you, if Hillary did his schedule, she’d drop dead.  I believe that Trump can win people over with his ideas and with the fact that he will actually work to broker deals which are mutually beneficial which, hopefully, will move our country back on the right path.

Here’s the other thing: Hillary will NEVER unify us.  She cannot win people over.  She has trashed: Trump supporters, rednecks, Bernie supporters, Catholics, Latinos, Blacks, and a whole host of other groups in these emails.  She flat hates at least 60% of this country.  As such, she cannot be a leader.  She will have to be a commander.  She will not view us as a nation to be unified.  She will view us as different types of livestock to be pitted against one another to accomplish her goals.  If she wins, she will come into office hating 60% of us and 40% of us hating her.  And there is nothing she can do to change their minds.  She is a proven liar and the most unlikeable person to ever run for office.

This is the contrast between the two candidates, and this is why I want Trump to win.

Long Live the Constitution!

No more…Mr. Nice Guy…No more…Mr. cl-he-hean!

#ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

#boom!

Oh my God.  Someone cut the Donald LOOSE!!!!!

Trump brought the truth tonight.  He was slamming her over and over and over again.  The debate moderators tried to save her…tried to attack him.  There were so many one-side “questions,” which were only meant to hurt Trump and had absolutely NO basis in what’s actually important for the country.  The ENTIRE 90 minutes, was Trump DESTROYING her against all of these obstacles.  HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOOM!

Long Live the Constitution!

Fox News Republican Debate

Posted by Troy on 28th January 2016 in Uncategorized

Without a doubt, this was the best debate.  It was nice to focus on the policy without the moderators making everything all about Trump.

Donald Trump – Turns out he was the big winner of the night.  Assuming that he maintains the support of 1/3rd of the people,   His followers are very loyal, so it is going to be hard for someone to take support away from him.  The big worry tonight was that Cruz would make use of Trump’s absence to demolish him.  Instead, Ted overplayed his hand and fell flat.  The only danger of the night resolved, Trump won.

Ted Cruz – He had a golden opportunity, and started off well.  But then he started complaining about how everyone was out to get him.  He came across as whiney and weak.  He attempted to turn it into a joke at Trump’s expense, and it fell flat.  This is very much like Jeb’s demand for Trump’s apology.  I don’t think it’s fatal, but it ruined what could have been a very good night.  He made a very good recovery on the immigration question.  He did a good job on ethanol in a state that makes a lot of money on ethanol.

Marco Rubio – Good showing for the Senator.  He came across as positive and earnest.  Rand savaged him early.  Rand is Rubio’s counterpoint.  Liberty vs Security.  And like all such discussions, it turns out that security is merely an illusion and falls apart when Liberty is talking.  He does a good job of trying to deny he supported amnesty considering how many clips show that he pretty much supports amnesty.  He is doing a good job of brining energy to his message.  That’s going to help him.

Ben Carson – Fantastic opening for Ben Carson.  He is speaking with a resolute tone of voice, and his message of Truth resonates as all messages of Truth does.  He gets so little screen time.  He gives great answers!  Loved his answer about 1 in 10 being a terrorist coming into your home.  Carson did a great job with the hardest question of the night regarding Putin invading Baltic states.  I think he had the most striking closing statement.

Jeb Bush – He is a statist.  He wants expanded war powers.  He also wants to bring Puerto Rico into the union, which is Krazi!  Why on Earth would we bring in an economic unpowered house full of crime?  He is chained to his past record, and that’s not a good record to be on.  I like how he dumps on Rubio on amnesty when he like amnesty.  Here’s the truth.  If you “give a path to citizenship,” the Democrats will attempt to “acceletrate the process.”  It will be a “one time thing” that will happen the NEXT time we have millions of “undocumented workers.”  If he thinks he would be Clinton, he is delusional.  Nothing would motivate Democrats more than running against Bush.

Rand Paul – He makes great arguments.  It is a shame that his presentation is so low-energy.  He did some great work regarding “criminal reform.”  He had a lot of good points.  He did a great job on the abortion question.  I do believe he is the only one that could balance the budget.

Chris Christie – It annoys me that he always sounds pretty good even though I believe that he is an imperial scumbag that would take a lot of vacations and have Bruce Springsteen to the White House.  Really good answer on Planned Parenthood.  That really gains him some ground.  I will say that he gets a bad rap on Bridge-gate.  He fired the people.  As such, I believe him.  This is the key principal difference between him and Obama with his scandals.

John Kasich – He seems to be speaking in platitudes tonight.  I think it’s because no one likes his plans.  Great…government equals charity…this is why I don’t like him.  Did Bret listen to Kasich at all on the Iran question?  Weird.  I mean…he is boring, but that is Bret’s only job, isn’t it?

Long Live the Constitution!

Tom’s Diner

Posted by Troy on 21st January 2016 in Uncategorized

A lot of people hate this song, but if you listen to the lyrics, it really is a beautiful and awesome song.  I highly recommend you listen to the acapella version:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzE-VTYOqxU

I am sitting
In the morning
At the diner
On the corner

I am waiting
At the counter
For the man
To pour the coffee

And he fills it
Only halfway
And before
I even argue

He is looking
Out the window
At somebody
Coming in

“It is always
Nice to see you”
Says the man
Behind the counter

To the woman
Who has come in
She is shaking
Her umbrella

And I look
The other way
As they are kissing
Their hellos

I’m pretending
Not to see them
Instead
I pour the milk

I open
Up the paper
There’s a story
Of an actor

Who had died
While he was drinking
It was no one
I had heard of

And I’m turning
To the horoscope
And looking
For the funnies

When I’m feeling
Someone watching me
And so
I raise my head

There’s a woman
On the outside
Looking inside
Does she see me?

No she does not
Really see me
Cause she sees
Her own reflection

And I’m trying
Not to notice
That she’s hitching
Up her skirt

And while she’s
Straightening her stockings
Her hair
Has gotten wet

Oh, this rain
It will continue
Through the morning
As I’m listening

To the bells
Of the cathedral
I am thinking
Of your voice…

And of the midnight picnic
Once upon a time
Before the rain began…

I finish up my coffee
It’s time to catch the train

The take: She’s having her breakfast at a diner and not getting the care and attention due to her as a customer because this girl comes in that the guy at the counter is into.  Might I add, the girl shakes her umbrella which is really inconsiderate to everyone else by getting water everywhere.  She turns away so that she doesn’t have to see their exchange of affections.  The news has a story about some actor who died drinking.  Why do we care?  Why is the news full of this tripe?  It’s unimportant.  She’s trying to distract herself with other meaningless drivel.  She feels someone watching her and looks up.  She wonders if the girl outside sees her, but the girl outside is wrapped up in herself and is only seeing her own reflection.  While trying to make herself more presentable in her vanity, the girl gets her hair wet, making her look worse.  The talk about rain is just a statement of depression.  This rain, this depression, is going to last forever.  Then the church bells ring, which stands for a wedding that never happened.  She slows her voice and trails off, lost in a thought about her past love’s voice…and a midnight picnic long before the depression began…but it’s time to go to work so she finishes up the coffee and goes to catch the train because life doesn’t stop or care about her depression.  No one notices her.  Hell, she can’t even get the bare minimum as a paying customer…but life goes on…

Long Live the Constitution!

Republican Debate Fox Business

Posted by Troy on 10th November 2015 in Uncategorized

Fox Business really showed how it’s done.   A great debate.  Very well moderated.  No theatrics.  Very informative.  A+ Fox Business.  Can’t wait to see the Democratic debate on Fox Business.  HA HA HA…

Okay, let’s do the same format as before.

From the biggest loser to the biggest winners:

John Kasich showed his true colors.  He believes that government is the answer.  Free enterprise is all well and good until things get rough, then it’s up to the government to step in and save the day.  He’s toast.

Jeb Bush needed to shine, and he didn’t.  He’s gone.

Carly Fiorina needed to shine and she didn’t.  Also, Rand Paul took her to task over Russia in the Middle East and showed her up.  She didn’t do bad, and I would love to see her debate Hillary Clinton, but she didn’t do anything to help herself.  The fact that she lacks a magnetic personality also hurts her.

Donald Trump finally had someone slap him down.  Rand Paul took him to task over the Asian trade agreement and embarrassed him.  You can tell how bad it was by the way Trump did not lash back.  He knew it was a mistake and wanted the moment to pass.  It wasn’t a bad night overall for him, but it was a weaker performance that previous ones.  However, no one up there understands marketing the way he does.  He stays on message.  Whenever he talks about the future, it is GLORIOUS!  Vote for him, and America is going to be super awesome!!!!  Seriously, an election is just marketing, and he understands marking better than anyone else out there.  Do NOT count him out.

Ted Cruz had a solid performance with a couple of hiccups.  Nothing major, but not perfect.  He’s solid as a Constitutional hawk.  He will be the candidate that wants Constitutional constraints domestically while still allowing for “flexibility” in using the military for foreign policy without declaration of war.

Marco Rubio was a big winner.  He had a solid performance.  He got owned by Rand Paul at one point.  Still, he was a big winner because Bush and Kasich are losers.  Rubio will be the establishment’s guy in the end.  However, the establishment vote only represents 24% of the votes.  This is less than Trump and on par with Carson.  If I look at the remaining people, I don’t think they are going to go to Rubio. Rubio was a darling of the Tea Party.  He got to Washington and sold out.  Tea Party types assume that, once you do that, you will flip-flop whenever needed.  The only way he wins the primary is if the Super-PACs manage to convince Republican voters that only a moderate Latino could beat Hillary, and that is going to be the unspoken messaging for him.

Carson was a winner because he maintained his calm persona.  He spoke with such hope.  He gave good answers.  And he is just the most likable human being I’ve ever seen.

The biggest winner tonight was Rand Paul.  He showed everyone up and proved he is the only one that really has an interest in fixing the budget (regardless of what Kasich says…anyone for bailouts is for national debt).  He also did a great job advancing libertarianism and shaping the debate.  He will not be moving up in the polls to the upper tiers, but he did a great job of showing why he is relevant and why libertarianism is relevant.

Long Live the Constitution
