On the Russia/Crimera issue: So this is how democracy dies – with thunderous applause. I’ve listened to mommy rant over Putin being a communist for years, and I’m inclined to agree with her. Methinks the world’s found its next tyrant. And Russia says they can obliterate us? Yea, let me tell you two things: first, everybody wants to obliterate the U.S. and second, everybody can obliterate everybody else. Yes, the world will die by fire next time – and we’ll probably set it in some pissing match over borders or votes or structures of government! Silly humans …
On the missing plane –It’s weird and I understand why it’s important to find it. But we forget that we know one thing for sure: the plane is down. There’s absolutely no way it’s still in the air somewhere. Maybe the pilots took it down on purpose. Maybe they were taken over by bad guys and landed somewhere not nice. Maybe they crashed. Maybe they flew into a parallel universe and are on another Earth saying “what the hell?!” But I don’t think the report mommy found last night about it safely landing on the moon is right. Um, no. I think we can count alien abduction or interstellar flight out. But hey, maybe I’m wrong. Keep an eye on the International Space Station. Who knows? We might find it orbiting Uranus. J
Ok, sorry. I know it’s a serious situation. It’s just that the whole “it’s on the moon!” thing is so ridiculous that I couldn’t resist. And now, moving on.
On the 2025 mission to Mars. People are actually signing up for a death sentence, eh? Because Mars is as dead as Adam and Eve, you know. But we want to find out what’s out there, and we’re going eventually, so why not? Well, I have a theory - why force the applicants for the first death watch mission make the horrible decision to leave behind family, home, and Earth forever? Send the criminals on the mission. I mean, death row inmates die anyway, right, and the people on this mission can never come back because they might get some heebie-geebie alien disease? So pack the criminals up and ship them off. Let that be the repayment of their debt to society. If that works, we may send the politicians next.
On Obamacare. Why isn’t anybody addressing the issue at the source: does medical care really need to cost as much as it does? Why are we justifying inflated prices by forcing insurance? Ask the manufacturers why they need to advertise pills for bipolar depression, herpes, and mating rituals. Ask if it really costs two hundred dollars to mix antihistamines and decongestants (geeze its sinus pills, not crystal meth!). Ask doctors if it looking at ears, eyes, and throats with a scope really troubles them worth charging $125 for the 5 minutes it took to do it. Everybody else has to justify their profit margin (except the oil industry). Make the medical industry do it too. Seems to me we’re going at this all backwards. Justifying high medical costs with forced insurance is like wiping before you poop. Of course, people keep telling mommy and me that we just don’t get it on this one, so go on squawking.
On the economy. It sucks. Seems Obama’s insidious plot to destroy the middle class is right on target. I remember the guy on the news a few years back that said “I need work instead of welfare because I stay out of trouble when I work.” Yea, so do most people. We need more jobs. We need tax breaks for hard workers. We need to penalize the big $$$ corporations bilking us to line their coffers. We need raises! We need for prices to go down and salaries to go up, because having it the other way around isn’t working. This isn’t King Solomon’s empire, folks, its America.
So see, I’m not just a prissy little lady. I do pay attention to what’s going on. And that, folks, is the way I see it. Stay tuned for more “Chatter with Chloe” later.
That’s all today. Take care, and have a great week!
