How Deep In the Quicksand ARE We?

Well, the following series of observations, attributed to Donald Trump and chain-emailed, pretty much reduces us to joking about the authoritarian vise we see being built and closing in upon us.

I'm not a big Trump fan but this is pretty good
Trump Explains Dumbo Care

No one can sum it up better than Trump

Let me get this straight . . . 
We're going to be "gifted" with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and

fined if we don't, 
Which purportedly covers at least
ten million more people,
without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
written by a committee whose chairman
says he doesn't understand it,
passed by a Congress that didn't read it but
exempted themselves from it, 
and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes, 
with funding administered by a treasury chief who
didn't pay his taxes, 
for which we'll be taxed for four years before any
benefits take effect
by a government which has 
already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, 
all to be overseen by a surgeon general
who is obese,
and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!
'What the hell could possibly go wrong?'

And what is the Republican Party doing about it? Scheming to elect Mitt Romney to administer this horror show.


  1. Someone named RAND should write a novel about this catastrophe.

  2. Time to dump to dump out all the politicians and start over.

    "Under democracy one party always devotes its chief energies to trying to prove that the other party is unfit to rule - and both commonly succeed, and are right."
