The problem with Medicare/Medicaid for all is that the service is no better. This allows nursing homes and hospitals to hire bottom of the barrel staff to take care of patients. The food is atrocious. The doctors can't even communicate properly in English because they are imported from over seas. Most of the nurses and CNAs are there for a paycheck and couldn't care less for patients needs. In NY, there's no proper patient staff rations. You're lucky if you get to see your nurse or aide one in a 12 hour shift. Most hospitals hire rent-a-nurse (think: rent a cop = mall security) who hardly know how to wrap a bandage. Most current nurses are coming out of prison or the welfare lines and are "given" their certifications.

My friend from Montreal, Quebec, Canada waits for months before she can see her doctor once. If you have a serious illness, you're left to wait in a nursing home until a slot opens. Most times, you're going to die before your slot opens.

Medicaid/Medicare-for-all is not a cure all. As an American I can go to Toronto to a doctor but I have to buy "Traveler's insurance" to offset the $450 I have to pay before my Medicaid kicks in. Otherwise, If I want o see a doctor NOW, I have to pay serious cash money to get in before all the Canadians on their "social medicine" program.

Right now, I am waiting for my drugs to kick in and then I do my own medical treatment, even though I have a nurse and I'm in a hospital in the state of NY.

That's Medicaid/Medicare-for-all. It's a sucker's bet.

People, this is why gun control won't work.

1. If you back ground check every one, no one would pass. Everyone has some kind of issue.

2. What's to say we take the guns away and then we'd have machetes, knives, cars, airplanes, lawn mowers, etc, etc, to add to the ban list. It's just not feasible.

3. Let's say we enact gun control laws. It's up to the states. States have no money. Feds have no money. Who will enforce the laws? It's the same principal behind why the southern wall will never work. Too much money, not enough trained personnel. Any who, in 30 years, when the Baby Boomers and Gen X passed away, the Millennials will tear it down.

4. Even if we enforced gun control laws, that doesn't account for all the arsenals buried in the woods and swamps that the po-po know about. This is going to go by the way of the Prohibition of the early 20's. People still drank Moonshine, and smuggled alcohol from Canada. Who's to say instead of drugs, cartels start smuggling weapons into America?

5. Criminals still have their arsenals hidden that we don't know about.

6. Before we ever see Gun Control Laws, no one will ever vote to repeal Second Amendment; the right to keep and bear arms. Even if we did, there would be so much litigation that by the time the dust settles, our great grandchildren won't see it.

7. And lastly, who the hell is going to abide by the repeal of the Second Amendment? no one. Blacksmithing will become a thing; new weapons will be milled just like alcohol was -- in back woods all over the country.

Demonize Americans because they have guns and you created a new batch of criminals that need to be housed, fed, clothed, given free medicine, etc, etc, etc and hire personnel to guard them.

Who's going to pay for all that mess?

YOU.

Gun control is a political point with no solution.

Please, I am not saying you need to believe in Jesus. That's up to you.
But I am writing this to show you the HYPOCRISY and the difference in Trump Christianity/Evangelicals and followers of Christ.

The latter do what (or try to the bible says. Action speaks louder than words is based on biblical principals. It's in the book of James.

The bible says in Matthew 7:21 - 23,

21 "Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 son that day many will say to me, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' 23 And then will I declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'

Basically, actions speak louder than words. Basically, Jesus says, if you're My followers, you have faith in Me, you believe in Me, why don't you do what I have taught you? Why haven't you put into action what I taught you?

Luke 6:4 says, And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say

Again, Jesus asks, if you call Me your Lord, why do you act like you don't know Me?

And, lastly in Luke 13: 22-30, it says,

22Then Jesus traveled throughout the towns and villages, teaching as He made His way toward Jerusalem. 23"Lord," someone asked Him, "will only a few people be saved?"

Jesus answered, 24"Make every effort to enter through the narrow door. For many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. 25After the master of the house gets up and shuts the door, you will stand outside knocking and saying, Lord, open the door for us.'

But he will reply, I do not know where you are from.'

26Then you will say, We ate and drank with you, and you taught in our streets.'

27And he will answer, I tell you, I do not know where you are from. Depart from me, all you evildoers.'

28There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves are thrown out. 29People will come from east and west and north and south, and will recline at the table in the kingdom of God. 30And indeed, some who are last will be first, and some who are first will be last."

Basically, it says, "Jesus, didn't we chill with You chill with you at church, didn't we eat fried chicken and had a fish fry after Sunday services? Yeah, but you didn't follow anything I taught you. You're not My students. I don't know you."

Jesus taught be kind to strangers, fed the hungry... even take care of he home I gave you. Isn't Earth our home? Jesus told us to be environmentally conscious.

It's in the Bible.

He also taught that people will choose between two "gods," manna (money) or Him.

So, evangelicals, who are you following, MONEY or JESUS?

Sorry for being long in the tooth.

Israelis don't give a hamburger what is the global opinion about Israel. Jews think they are the Chosen ones of God and that's it. Whether YOU, She-neh-neh, or Barney Fife believes it makes no never mind to them. Israel is your friend only until they are done using you.

I say this because I was married to a non practicing Jew until 1997. She taught me everything I needed to know about Israel. They are ready to take Israel's entire population underground in case of an all out war against Israel. You think Trump is a nationalist? Nope. Israel is the true nationalist. Either you are a Jew or you're not a Jew. The former will be allowed into the country and the being the latter will get you a swift kick in the arse.
HOWEVER, as Americans, if someone wants to destroy America, what would we do?

We would do what we did 18 years ago when we were attacked. We paused politics and we came together as Americans. We cannot fault anyone because when we were attacked by the Japanese at Pearl Harbor, we came together as Americans and stopped the war with one bomb. And we released a 2nd atomic bomb because of poor electromagnetic communications. By the time we received a Japanese surrender, we had already dropped on Nagasaki.

When Japan surrendered, the bombing stopped. Americans were ready to wipe out a nation if needed to preserve America.

And we wouldn't give one hamburger about global foreign policy if America's existence was in danger.

And that's the two sides of the coin, folks.

We need to mind our business (unless Russia gets involved through backwater channels) and let Israel and the Arab world duke it out. When the dust settles, we'll see who really is the big dog of the yard?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

#MAGA

Do you feel like you're winning now? Do you still feel like Trump's your messiah? Your "Ubermensch?

He told all of you he was going to grab you ------- by the ----- and YOU STILL VOTED FOR TRUMP!

Not only did he grab your -----, he stuck his Cheetos orange pinkie up your ---! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

This is going to effect mostly the red states like West Virginia, etc. Blue states have their state environmental laws established and to hell with Trump because we get nothing from the Feds anyway.
