Time for Californians to Take a Stand!

In Healthcare, In My Opinion..., Politics, Trump Apocalypse on May 5, 2017 at 1:09 pm


As Californians, we always moan that we can’t effect change because we live in a blue state. Well, yesterday, the seven remaining Republican Representatives from the great state of California voted to accept a health care bill that will undermine the health and well-being of Californians. We CAN do something about that. Please consider voting these seven Republicans out of office the next time they come up for election (June and November 2018). They obviously are not serving their constituency. They were in such a hurry to pass their healthcare bill that they didn’t bother to find out what their proposed bill would cost to taxpayers. They don’t seem to care that their new bill will remove millions of needy people from the healthcare rolls. It’s time to fight back.

Here are the name and districts:

Jeff Denham – California 10th District

David Valadao – California 21st District

Steve Knight – California 25th District

Ed Royce – California 39th District

Mimi Walters – California 45th District

Dana Rohrbacher – California 48th District

Darrell Issa – California 49th District

If you are a Republican, you should be ashamed of your representatives. If you are a Democrat,  please get out and vote to remove these self-serving politicians out of office. We need representatives that care more about their constituents than they do about voting the party line.

Remember, these representatives are up for election in June and November 2018. Rise up and vote them out of office!


Sarah, I Think I Love You!

In Healthcare, In My Opinion..., Random Thoughts, Sarah Palin on August 12, 2009 at 9:14 pm

sarahYes, I have an unnatural attraction to Sarah Palin. Try as I might, she’s a bit like a car crash; I don’t want to look, but I can’t help myself. I was hoping that she’d disappear after she “passed” the governorship to her Lt. Governor in order to save the State of Alaska. What was I thinking? Even if she wanted to stay out of the spotlight I don’t think she could. The press loves her. America loves her. And, dare I admit it, I love her!

I know, I know, I’m a bit of a liberal democrat. I really was in physical pain watching the Bush administration for eight years. And during the final days of the 2008 elections, I burst several veins yelling at the TV when Sarah or John spoke or were “interviewed.” But over the past few months, I’ve been fascinated by the spectacle that is Sarah Palin. She’s like a drug. I listen to her speeches or read her Facebook/Twitter entries and wonder what goes on in her head. Does she really mean what she’s saying? Does she even understand what she’s staying? Does she write this stuff or is someone holding her brain hostage?
