FALL SESSION 2019



BLOG POST #3,291 AT THE AICP-END



367 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2020



IF Liz should win the Democratic Party’s 2020 nomination, Trump could win a 50 state landslide the likes of which, will destroy their party…
Kula, HI 96790, 11-04-2019 Monday:  Welcome to a week of spiritual aloha, a grand time in which, you and I will commune on politics and whatever else pops up.  Given how things are and have been for the past three years, I believe politics will be all we discuss because what else is there other than to wish the Washington Nationals a big congratulations and a warm, island-style hug complete with leis and the keys to Maui for their impressive World Series victory last week.   
No sooner did poor Donald Trump win clearance from the Russian collusion investigation as run by that aged fossil, Robert S. Mueller III[i], the devious Democrats sought to embroil the commander-in-chief in a new conspiracy theory, one in which, he sought Ukrainian aid in investigating an already flawed and corrupt individual, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son, Hunter[ii], someone who was in league with the Ukrainians in the drive to amass a vast fortune all because of his illustrious surname. 
I will admit there have been times when I have been down in the dumps and been depressed over yet another thing President Trump has supposedly said or done when I knew in my heart and mind that he most likely had done or said NOTHING wrong.  I mean, why would he what with the constant scrutiny he gets around the clock?  It is as if he must undergo a pelvic exam by someone like Adam Schiff[iii] every single day he’s in office.  Wow.  What a thought.  Time for a new doctor- I would not want a troll like Schiff looking up my hoo-hoo.  
Ah, well, it is what it is.  We can change our doctors, especially our ‘box docs’ but it takes a bit more work to rid ourselves of the likes of Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, flabby Jerry Nadler, and boy oh boy oh boy, people like Mazie Hirono who is a continual embarrassment to our state although she seems to have gone silent since being unable to get rid of Justice Brett Kavanaugh. 
Unfortunately, neither of Hawaii’s senators are up for reelection in 2020, neither Crazy Mazie or silent Brian Schatz[iv] (although we sure wish the heck they were because a Republican comeback in the state is on the horizon).  You see, warm, loving people like those living in the nation’s 50th state can put up only so long with angry, aggressive hateful people like Sen. Hirono[v].  That woman is evil and she sure as heck needs to go. 
Eric and I have no doubt that the Democrats are going to suffer in next year’s elections.  I mean, how can they not?  When someone as loony as Sen. Elizabeth Warren, she the proud- but phony- ‘Cherokee princess’ releases an insane plan as to HOW she plans to pay for Medicare for All and people in her own party begin jeering her, you know they are in trouble. 
Sen. Warren says her plan will sneak in under the $52 TRILLION the federal government estimates such a plan will cost for a decade.  She acts as though somehow that is a bargain?  I do not normally swear or cuss but the first thing I thought when I heard it was “WTF?”  The federal budget per year comes nowhere near that were we to add it up for 10 years and figure some appreciation into our calculations. 
What makes it even worse is that the $52 TRILLION figure is for Medicare for All ALONE.  That number does not include the other things the federal budget must pay for, whether Social Security, the national defense, education, infrastructure and other items that are extremely important. 
Not to worry says, Sen. Liz Warren.  We are going to force everyone we deem to be evil and ‘enemies of the state’ to fork over the dough.  Jacob Pramuk (thank you) at CNBC provides the following figures (please see References):
1.      Employer Medicare Contribution: $8.8 trillion.  (We are already getting soaked in out payouts for our workers that another increase could very well break the backs of not only just Hawaiian employers but the entire country’s).
2.      Taxes on individuals (supposedly the wealthy): $1.15 trillion.
a.      Eliminate tax breaks for medical expenses: $250 billion.
3.      Taxes on financial firms (based on a 1/10th percent tax on financial transactions): $800 billion.
a.      Fees on the 40 largest banks: $100 billion.
4.      Taxes on large corporations: $1.25 trillion.
a.      Taxes on overseas corporation earnings at 35 percent: $1.65 trillion.
5.      Taxes on the top 1 percent of wealthy individuals (the evil rich): $3 trillion.
6.      Better tax enforcement (meaning the IRS is going to crush EVERYONE): $2.3 trillion.
7.      Immigration reform: $400 billion.
8.      Elimination of the overseas contingency fund (so-called Pentagon ‘slush fund’: $800 billion.
9.      Total: $20.5 TRILLION[vi].
This brings in $20.5 TRILLION so we still need to come up with another $31.5 TRILLION to get the ball rolling on this steaming pile of hog crap and the promise that taxes will not increase for the middle class is a pile of fecal matter, too, because the wealthy and the corporations will bolt the country to friendlier environs, i.e., Panama, the Caribbean, and China, which will leave you, me, and everyone else paying for a disaster that will destroy our country.
Thanks, Liz, thanks.  I hope you don’t win the nomination but if you should, Trump could win all fifty states and perhaps some that don’t yet know exist like the other seven that genius, Barack Obama, mentioned back in 2008. 
Wow.  Amazing.  See you tomorrow.

[i] Bob Mueller did clear President Trump on colluding with Russia although now in a variety of online articles such as < https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/29/us/politics/mueller-special-counsel.html>, he swears he didn’t.  Come on Bob, go back to the rest home and STFU. Editor’s note.
[ii] IF anyone has colluded with foreign powers, it is this father and son duo who seem to have amassed a fortune by doing backroom deals with the Ukrainians and the Chinese.  Shame on them.
[iii] Imagine if this lolo was a gynecologist, what woman would ever feel secure lying in the stirrups and having this facsimile of man looking between her legs and feeling her up?  I am telling you, the only time this loser gets his rocks off is when he is in the shower thinking about what a ‘hero’ he is going to be when he impeaches and gets Trump thrown out of office.  Yes, I am talking stink about this bum.
[iv] Brian Schatz comes up for re-election in 2022 while Crazy Lizzie comes up in 2024- if she isn’t in the White House by then.
[v] Sen. Hirono does not have the popularity she once had in the islands.  Everyone thinks she is a spiteful, hateful, b***h and that they hope we have a better choice when she comes up for re-election.  You and me both.
[vi] Sen. Warren swears she has a math doctoral student working on her numbers but we all recall that Pres. Barack Obama had all manner of people willing to lie for him so they could stuff Obamacare down our throats.
[vii] By the time all was said and done, President Obama cost his party more than 1,500 seats around the nation thanks to the unpopularity of his failed policies.  






























































































FEATURED ALBUM OF THE DAY:









Argent released their tertiary effort, “All Together Now,” on July 18, 1972 and featured the same lineup as their first two efforts: Rod Argent (all keyboards/vocals), Russ Ballard (guitars/vocals), Jim Rodford (bass/vocals), and Bob Henrit (drums and percussion).  The album was their best to date with the big radio hit, “Hold Your head Up.”  Fans were delighted when the album came out as it demonstrated the potential of an up-and-coming band, one that would be a constant touring group throughout the 1970s.  We hope you will consider listening to this one and adding it to your growing collection of classic rock music as both the band and the record are superb.
