Another Stupid Political Move

The first thing that went through my head when I saw this was “grow up.” The person named is a candidate for Chief of police. I have no clue if the campaign did this or a supporter but seeing there is no derogatory comments, I would say it was a supporter.

Somebody thought it was funny to show a movie seen of a cop pointing a gun and saying to vote! (or what, your going to shoot me?) Hello! This is a Chief of police campaign, does this mean they support police brutality? If I come to this town should I be worried about intimidation from the police for just stopping there to buy something? Why are old movie about the south and dirty sheriffs keep coming to mind?

I’m tired of really stupid campaigns for an office. As a conservative all I want is the facts. I’m an adult, I can take the information I have obtained and make a reasonable assessment of a person. But when I see thing like this all I can think is “They’re taking the campaign as a joke.” Then I think, “are they taking the job as a joke too?”

If the campaign is serous about this election I would suggest: that you denounce this type of rhetoric.

Let all people know you don’t support this type of campaigning. In other words, take the high road.
Or to make my statement more simple, your running for Chief, would you let your officers do this? Because this is an embarrassment to you and the office your trying to obtain.

As a news reporter, if I needed a story for the day. I would eat you for breakfast over this picture and be much harsher than I am in this commentary. Don’t become my “story of the day.”

**Update** This picture came from The assistant Chief of police for Starke, Florida, Major Barry Warren Facebook page.

Are You Losing Your Obamacare Insurance

Here’s an article written by Breitbart that shows what most likely will happen to Obamacare in 2018. Now you know the reason why the President is pushing to repeal it and the Senate said “no.”

It has been reported that 1,332 counties in America will only have one health insurer on the Obamacare exchanges, according to a new study from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The CMS also reported that 40 counties do not have any health insurers on the Obamacare exchanges. 

The CMS reported, “The map currently shows that nationwide 40 counties are projected to have no issurers, meaning that Americans in these counties could be without coverage on the Exchanges in 2018. It’s also projected that 1,332 counties—over 40 percent of counties nationwide—could only have one issuer in 2018.”

“This could represent more than 2.3 million Exchange participants that will only have one choice and may not be able to receive the coverage they need,” the agency added.

At least 27,660 Americans live in counties that the CMS projected will not have any health coverage on the Obamacare marketplaces next year.

The CMS estimated that average Obamacare marketplace insurance premiums increased by 21.6 percent between 2016 and 2017. The agency also suggested that the health insurer participation dropped by more than a third since its peak in 2015, two years after the Obamacare exchanges opened.

After Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) voted to keep Obamacare last week, President Donald Trump suggested that he should let Obamacare implode to force Democrats and Republicans to compromise on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Dangerous and Boring

Milo Yiannopoulos’s book is forgettable by every reasonable standard of literary merit.

Milo may be a dying star. By his own actions and not by his haters.

Milo Yiannopoulos just self published a book about his life and from what I’m seeing it doesn’t reveal anything new or exciting.

Grant it, I did not read it, but reading the comments about the book and knowing that most self written books are basically repeating everything the news has reported about a person, it will be nothing new or shocking.

Milo is a very good self-promoter. He changes his spots to work with what is current. Last I heard he’s pushing a speaking type company to get conservative/libertarians in colleges for lectures. Why? Mainly because the tracks he’s on are coming to an end and he knows it plus to generate revenue for himself and his business.

Looking at this with a common sense outlook, let’s look at some simple facts:

He’s gay and conservative: Who cares. He’s push this fact to the point that everybody knows it and are tired of it. We really don’t care who or whom you have slept with.

He’s not a reporter: He’s a commentator, a promoter, a modern day P.T. Barnum.

He’s very difficult to contact to get an interview about his book: Most publishers and writers would kill to get an interview to push their books regardless with who will give them an interview. Milo is a very good promoter, he does things to get himself noticed but not an interview. He doesn’t want an interview. Because it would force him to admit his book is just a review of what the media has reported about him for years.

He has a website that just repost stories other first reported: Which there is nothing wrong with that. His site simplifies the story and get’s to the point of the story without the commentaries added. We do the same thing.

This book does not feature any passage of sparkling wisdom, because he’s not much of a writer. It will not contain any particularly interesting outlooks, because he has never indicated that he has had any.

Conclusion:

The benefits of using the Breitbart name (whom he worked for) are coming to an end. When a person writes a book about their life, that usually means a chapter in a life is ending. If it wasn’t ending, he would have published dirt on people to keep the saga going.

The Trump coat tail that he rode have disappeared. He has to create a new avenue for himself.

Most likely he’ll pushed the book until September, push lecture tour at colleges and do things that create a shock value. But that will become a norm after a short time and he will be forced to change.

I wouldn’t be shocked if he goes full conservative and drops the gay card. He’s a good speaker, even entertaining. One thing for sure, his light is not as bright as it once was.
