My Parasitic Twin Wants to be President – Chapter Three – The Issues

Another month, another chapter. If you need to catch up, here are links to Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. Despite adjusting my medications, I put more words down on paper to create a Chapter 3, this time about campaign issues. Gee, that sounds dry. It was difficult to write about serious issues in a light-hearted way. I’m not sure I succeeded. Regardless, here are some excerpts from a raw, unedited third chapter about issues facing us today.

No, this is not a post with bad spelling about a MAZDA automobile. I know we are all working hard to MAGA – Make America Great Again by attempting to take away each other’s healthcare and giving YUGE tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations, but I’d be happy with taking baby steps in that direction. How about this? I would be happy if something could be done to stop this from happening to my car seat every time I open the car door on a snowy day.

Ranking the Late Night Talk Show Hosts Named Jimmy

#1 – Jimmy Kimmel

Known for his comedy bits and recently for his fight for affordable healthcare for all.

#2 – Johnny Carson

Despite being deceased and not named Jimmy, Carson somehow made the list.

End of list.

Editor’s Note: Jimmy Fallon is not included since he received no votes due to being painfully not entertaining.

Can I get an explanation for this healthcare explanation?

With a Senate healthcare bill vote looming next week, I wanted to make sure I completely understood Donald Trump’s position on pre-existing conditions. I decided to re-read the transcript from the NY Times interview he gave last week. Maybe that would give me some clarity of understanding. Here’s what he had to say.

McConnell’s Unbearable Acts of Kindness

Mitch McConnell has a busy day planned today. He plans to unleash the latest Senate version of Trumpcare onto the unsuspecting American public today. Then he has a variety of other activities planned today like pulling legs off bugs, delivering foreclosure notices to widows, roasting ants with a magnifying glass, pulling scholarships from some area college students, peeing in a public pool, and cutting the ribbon on a new orphanage with workhouse attached, so there’s no daily commute for the kids! How thoughtful! Finally, he plans to meet with representatives from ADAPT, the national group of activists on behalf of people with disabilities. Hey, that last one actually sounds constructive.

Healthcare is Hard

“I have to tell you, it’s an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew that health care could be so complicated.” – Donald Trump in a speech yesterday.

Nope, nobody on earth considered healthcare a complex issue, but after being told that it is, NOW WE DO. On this healthcare issue, Trump reminds me of the college student who doesn’t go to class all semester, but shows up for the final exam, and finds it to be difficult. Yes, that college student may have been me and the reason for the recurring dreams several decades later.

Trump is supposed to reveal details of his healthcare plan today when he addresses Congress. I expect it to be short on details, if any exist at all considering this “surprising” complexity of the whole healthcare issue. I would not be surprised if the basics of his plan could be summed up in this manner …


Thanks to Dr. Nick for putting it in a language even Trump can understand.
