Have you ever been on top of the Empire State Building?  They say you can see for 20 miles in each direction.  At a radius of 20 miles that means your total view from that center would be roughly 1256 square miles….  You probably are looking at 5 million people….

Imagine all those people without insurance. unable to go get care.. unable to go to an emergency room, unable to get medical care and dying from colds, coughs, infections that could cheaply and easily be fixed, but aren’t.

The reason is some Republican states have denied them insurance.  Insurance they would be entitled to if, and it is a big if, if they had lived in a Democratic state with Democratic legislatures and Democratic governors…. They would be well. They would be covered…

But they aren’t … They aren’t for one reason.  To spite the black man who ran the Affordable Health Care through Congress and signed it into law… 

It is not expensive.  The Affordable Health Care saves money.  Money that could be used to build bridges. build roads, augment schools… There is so much good that money could do…  but it isn’t coming into those Republican states….  and their citizens are not being covered to spite the black man…. (It is mostly the South, and Midwest, where Blacks are an extreme minority)…. 

So call Rick Jensen today at WDEL.  He needs some company up there alone on his soapbox harranguing the outrage, outrage that 30 veterans died because they couldn’t get healthcare.  Ask him why he doesn’t care about 5 million denied healthcare by his friends the Republicans? 

(Liz, are you ok? Haven’t heard you for a while)….

Seriously … if the Veteran’s debacle is a real tragedy, the fact that we have Republicans in positions of power in our state legislatures must be 166,000 times more of a tragedy…..

So… call in… Say… Why aren’t you talking about the real tragedy…. 5 million people without Health Insurance, denied to them by Republicans and Republicans alone?

Are you two- faced?  or what…

Yeah…. the number is 302- 478- 9335   or 478- WDEL  in case you forget the number….  Greg will answer and you will say you want to speak to Rick about the Veterans scandal, and ask you question….

It would be fun, if all of you could do so?  Don’t take up too much time. Let others call in too…..

Delaware’s finest performing Full of Bees… The great…. Todd Chappelle

Coupled with Rick Jensen’s comment on 9 million new immigrants, we are in the middle of a beesy weekend of puns… I predict…..

Mine? The new state logo above in my Title… (You’re very welcome….. 🙂 )

Ok…. one more then….

=========

You get up every morning
From the sound of your alarm clock’s warning
Then leave at 8:15 to go into the city…

You see sinage smilin’ down
Warnin’ bees swarmin” all around…
And marshmellow-like foam gumming up all the highways….

And if your lane’s lucky and on time
You can get to work by nine….
And start your slaving job to carry your own load…

But if you ever get annoyed
Just think of being self-employed
Cause us apiarist just dip up honey all day

(Till ‘they’ call…(ringtone) saying…. Hey! Do you know anything about…. bees?)

Then I’ll be
Takin’ care of beesness, every day
Takin’ care of beesness, in every way
I’ll been takin’ care of beesness, it’s all mine
Takin’ care of beesness while working overtime

(Work it out)

If it were easy being an apiary-ist
And your face could contort like a Drew Carey-ist
And you would squeal when stung, like a newborn colt

But if your windows are rolled down,
Warning. You’ll never make into town,
Unless you can sprint super fast like a Hussein Bolt.

But chances are that you’ll go far
With windows rolled tight up in your car….
But with traffic you might not make it into town…..

So if you’re stuck in traffic,
Don’t do anything that is graphic…
Just sit calmly and look at things from afar….

Tell your boss it’s not your fault….
95 is one big, huge car lot
If that if he fires you, Governor Markell with him will be annoyed…..

Cause you’ll been sittin’
Takin’ care of beesness, every day
Takin’ care of beesness, every way
You’ve been takin’ care of beesness, it’s all mine
Takin’ care of beesness, and working overtime
Take good care of beesness
When I’m away, every day whoo

Remember you get up every morning
From the sound of your alarm clock’s warning
Then leave at 8:15 to go into the city…

You see the sinage smilin’ down
With bees still swarmin’ ’round…
And marshmellow-like foam gumming up all the highways….

Frightened people pushin’, people shovin’
Performing their last rites and their last lovin’
Just praying they make it alive into the city…..

But, if you ever get annoyed
Consider me, I’m self-employed
Then respect what I have to do all day

*While you’re slavin’ ) I’ll be….
Takin’ care of beesness …every day
Takin’ care of beesness ….every way
I’ll bee taking care of beesness, …they’s all mine
Takin’ care of beesness and working overtime ….

Takin’ care of beesness
Takin’ care of beesness
Takin’ care of beesness
Takin’ care of beesness
Takin’ care of beesness

(Not as good as Todd’s but it is a try… nevertheless…. )

Hey, anybody got a buzz?

On Rick Jensen today this occurred.   Ask him for the podcast… More later….

They don’t say they are Koch ads.  And they don’t say anything really… Just moan and groan about nothing….

One of the statements being made by a senior women, is “and they promised us we could keep our own insurance, well you know how that goes.”

Whoa, Back up old lady. The fact is, that you can keep your own insurance if you wish.  Not only was that extended originally, but it was extended again.  If you want your crappy piss poor insurance policy, you can keep your crappy piss poor insurance policy, even though it gouges you in they eye and pays nothing if you go blind.

Those type of policies should be illegal…   The only reason they aren’t, is because in order to fill the spirit of a promise, they are grandfathered into existence despite the fact they hurt everyone who has them…. Hopefully those people will grow some brains and get a cheaper policy that covers them far better… But if they are adamant in their stupidity, well, a promise is a promise.  They can keep them….

 

But what is funny, it that this old senior woman,  jumps into minimum wage….   Raising the minimum wage will hurt women …..

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Even demented old seniors in nursing homes know that making $10.10 for every hour in a forty hour week, is better than making $7.25 dollars an hour in a forty hour week… It doesn’t matter if you are a man, or a woman… It is $2.85 dollars an hour better or $114 dollars a week, better, or $456 dollars a month better….

That will hurt women the Koch Brothers say….

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

The only thing stupider than a Koch Brother is someone who actually believes them…..

Hello. Rick Jensen?

 

If Delaware has 11,000 workers making at or below minimum wage, and all of those theoritically were given a $450 monthly raise,  the spending power of the Delaware economy would jump $5 million dollars a month…

If the Koch’s owned half the wealth, that means this awesome  jump in the economy is $2.5 million a month out of their own pocket….  No wonder they are throwing $6,000 at WDEL to try to trick you into calling for NOT improving our economy.

If you liked Ronald Reagan, you need to switch to the Democratic Party, now!

Now, if only Rick Jensen was as smart as you are….  😦

What's The Filibuster Frequency, Kenneth?

A visual reminder for our friends on the other side, exactly why this privilege is being lifted. To the uninitiated, a filibuster is defined as “the stoppage of the accomplishment of something”. If you’ve wondered why Congress is doing nothing, this chart clearly explains why. This afternoon, listen to Rick Jensen cry great big crocodile tears (boo,hoo,hoo) from 1:00 to 3:00 this afternoon (11/21/13) on WDEL. Then if you’re listening Kenneth, stay tune to that frequency of 1150am….. for beer.
