Right Wing Round Up

By Jeff Simpson 

In the new era of Reich right wing rule in our country, the insane stories are flowing more than anyone can keep up. 

Here is a quick update of a few you may have missed. 

1.  Now that we know how cool these things are, its time to build a campaign around them! 

WASHINGTON — A Republican candidate for governor in Georgia is giving away a "bump stock," the rapid-fire gun modification linked to the Las Vegas shooting, in a campaign contest to highlight his opposition to new regulation on the devices.
State Sen. Michael Williams, who is positioning himself as the most pro-Donald Trump candidate in a crowded GOP field to succeed term-limited Gov. Nathan Deal, said the contest is a celebration of the Second Amendment.
2.  I know your deathly ill, but I would like to save a few bucks!  

Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) proposed on Friday that hospital emergency rooms should be able to turn patients away to help keep health care costs down.

 3.   Your baby is NOT medically necessary,  now check out my pro-life stance!

A 9-month-old boy with an aggressive brain tumor received a letter from his family’s insurance company explaining that treating the cancer would be too expensive and therefore “not medically necessary.”
‘Dear Connor Richardson,” the letter said, according to The Daily Beast, “As HIP Health Plan of New York, we try hard to provide you with access to quality health care services that meet your needs. When we decide to deny coverage for treatment or service, we want to make sure you know why.”
4.  It was nice of the people on the military base to play "Retreat" to honor Sean Hannitys ratings! 

 As “Retreat” is played, the Army website explains, “Once the bugle sounds, all personnel driving on the installation should stop. Service members and government civilian personnel are encouraged to turn off their vehicles, and, if safe to do so, exit to render the appropriate honors.”Trump is by virtue of his position, the highest-ranking official in the U.S. military and is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed forces.

5.  The Donald called a grieving father and said your check is in the mail. 

  President Trump, in a personal phone call to a grieving military father, offered him $25,000 and said he would direct his staff to establish an online fundraiser for the family, but neither happened, the father said.

6.  Oh, I think that I've found myself a cheerleader.  He is always right there when I need him.  

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) praised President Trump's decision to cut off key subsidies to health insurance companies, saying the move ultimately upheld Congress's constitutional "power of the purse."
"Today’s decision by the Trump administration to end the appeal of that ruling preserves a monumental affirmation of Congress’s authority and the separation of powers," Ryan said in a statement late Thursday.

7.  WMC wants to rule the world.   Kurt Bauer, has controlled the state of WI for the last seven years.  While Scott Walker tells everyone he fights the "big money special interests", he is like a puppet on a string for the people at WMC.   The fact that when Bauer says jump, Scott Walker says how high, has gone to Kurt Bauer's head.  Now he wants to change everything about WI, starting with our license plates.   

 The head of the state’s influential business lobby says Wisconsin should consider scrapping the slogan that has adorned its vehicle license plates since World War II: “America’s Dairyland.”There’s no indication the idea has traction at the state Capitol, and the state’s dairy lobby is opposed. The suggestion by Kurt Bauer, executive director of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce, prods the state and its residents — who affectionately refer to themselves as “Cheeseheads” — to reimagine their identities in the 21st century.

“THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated” Thomas Paine!
