Top 10 Things Guaranteed To Happen If Trump Is Elected

Posted on

1. He will say, on camera, “Mr. Obama … you’re fired!” then will mug for the camera for at least 37 minutes.

2. We will have a competitor for the worst reality show ever: “Can’t Stump the Trump!”, a “filmed live yet edited for content” type of show in which Mr. Trump walks around Washington, D.C., asking people if they know who he is and, on a scale of nine to ten, how much they love him. They will then be allowed to ask Mr. Trump one question, which he will answer immediately. John Dickerson will be listed in the credits as “Fact Checker,” but will not actually be allowed to fulfill the duties of this position.

3. He will refer to his Vice President as “The Apprentice”

4. The Grant Memorial, National Mall, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial and the WWII Memorial will all be moved in order to make way for the Presidential Fairway. Anything hit into any of the museums along the way is considered “out of bounds” and may result in a two-stroke penalty.

5. Ted Nugent, American Medal of Freedom winner, will play the National Anthem every morning at 6:30 a.m. from the steps of the Capitol building, just before airing his new public access radio show, “I Hate Everything About Jew.” Sarah Palin will be hired to dance “seductively” during Nugent’s performance.

6. President Trump’s first Supreme Court appointee will be “This guy I know. He got me a great deal on some land in Scotland. They love me over there, you know. Sure, they had to change plans for some wind turbans or something, but hey – a deal is a deal!” If you correct Mr. Trump for his use of “wind turbans” instead of “wind turbines,” he will ask why you hate America.

7. The ACA is repealed, and The Bornstein Scale of Good Healthcare is rolled out immediately. Named after Trump’s personal physician, Harold Bornstein, who is immediately installed as the new Surgeon General, the Bornstein Scale of Good Healthcare is based on pre-treatment triage. Classifications include, “Astonishingly excellent,” “Bestest health ever in the history of the whole world,” “You may wanna see a doctor about that,” and, “Well, we don’t have a death panel, but if we did …”

8. Trump will streamline a new process for immigration and citizenship, but it may only be used by his personal tailor so the President can finally wear suits that are made in America.

9. All Super Bowl Halftime entertainment will be provided by monster trucks and people on motorcycles jumping through flaming hoops. If one of them crashes and dies, free Papa Johns pizza for the entire country the next day. (Limit one pizza per household.)

10. President Trump, after a three-day bender holed up in his hotel in Las Vegas, decides to prove his point. He then proceeds to shoot people in the street, immediately followed by asking the next-closest person if they still love him.

You all take care of each other and have a good day.

Clyde’s Rulebook

Posted on

While I think Bill Maher is a jerk to many of his guests, he does make some good points sometimes. I just wish he wasn’t so smug about it, maybe then I could watch his show without hoping he gets hit by a bus on his way out of the studio. But the one thing I will take away from his show is the “New Rules” segment. Except I’m making them into my own rules. Break one of these rules … I don’t know. You might get fined, like one of those traffic cameras that sends you a ticket in the mail. I might talk about you here and tell people you’re an a-hole. Or – and this is the worst thing I can think of – I just won’t like you. I won’t respect you, I won’t listen to anything you have to say. You will be, for all intents and purposes, a non-entity to me. You will be to me what regular citizens are to members of Congress (ba-dum-tish!).

Alright, let’s get down to it.

Rep. John Lewis & Sen. Bernie Sanders

Rep. John Lewis & Sen. Bernie Sanders

Yesterday, I talked about how we need to look at the source of our news because if you don’t, you might just get bamboozled. The next thing you need to ask is: “How deep should I look? Just because a source is or seems reputable does that mean I should listen to them?” Well, that part’s up to you.

And today, the news cycle gave us a perfect example of this. Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) spoke out in favor of Hillary Clinton, and mentioning – some say attacking, but that’s what we’re going to get into – Bernie Sanders, saying (and I won’t use quotes here because the quotes news sources use vary) that he never saw or met Bernie Sanders during the Civil Rights protests of the 1960’s.

The internet is making us stupid

Posted on

I’ve probably said all this before, and to be honest, I’ll probably say it all again. But here it goes.

The internet is making us stupid.

“But the internet is a great learning tool! It makes the world a smaller place, bringing us closer to a global community!”

Well, you know how when you were in school there was always that one kid that would remind the teacher if she forgot to assign homework? Well, those people are on the internet, too.

There’s No Money In A Cure

Posted on

Different individuals relate to different causes, especially in terms of diseases and the like. Sure, nobody wants everyone to get sick, but people who’ve had a relative die from breast cancer may donate more money to finding a cure for breast cancer than they would, say, a cure for heart disease. One article I read (dated 2011) states that between grants and donations, breast cancer alone receives more than $6 billion dollars annually. That’s a whole lot of money.

You may be expecting me to follow up that little tidbit with the question of, “Where does the money go?” Well, that’s not what I’m asking. What I am asking is, “Why haven’t we found a cure yet?”

That’s easy. You don’t make money from a cure. You make money from treatments.

I was going to reply to Jerry’s post about coal, but decided that my response was too detailed, so I’m going to write my own (and I’m stealing Jerry’s title).
