Americans More Scared of Clowns than Climate Change

According to a poll conducted by Chapman University, 42 per cent of Americans are afraid of clowns, whereas only 32 per cent are afraid of climate change.

They’re also more scared of terrorist attacks (41 per cent), gun rights infringement (38 per cent), family members dying (38 per cent), economic collapse (37 per cent), Obamacare (36 per cent), and biological warfare (35 per cent).

Well, I for one, refuse to be afraid of clowns, so there’s that.


Berkeley Protesters Demand ‘Spaces of Color,’ Block White Students from Passing Through

Students at the UC Berkeley campus are holding protests, calling for “safe spaces” for transgendered people and “spaces of color” at the university. The protesters were caught on video harassing white students and preventing them from crossing a bridge that receives heavy foot traffic, only allowing for students of color to pass.

The protesters also wound up making their way to the student store and disrupting other students who were studying in the Student Union.

Berkeley has already discussed plans to convert the campus’s Andres Castro Arms co-op into a “Person of Color theme house” by this fall semester. And in what may be seen as a regression from the progress this nation has made since the dark days of segregation in this country, black and minority students appear to have successfully convinced the UC school system to consider building separate housing for black students on some of its campuses.

I’m sorry. The older African American folks need to step in here. It is time for them to be heard. Because it was them who fought to end segregation and they fought like Hell. They went through things these kids could never imagine, all to be included in a society that so desperately wanted them separate. They wanted to be a part of America. They wanted to be functional and meaningful members of society. And they wanted to make sure they and their children had all the same advantages of anyone else in America. And through blood, sweat, and tears, they succeeded!

And now their grandchildren are fighting to re-segregate, to undo everything they fought so hard for.

Is no one seeing this? People see this stuff and still want to vote for Hillary to we can have more of the same. Another four to eight years of this and this country will be so divided it will take generations to reunite it. It isn’t just African Americans. Every definable group is trying to segregate from every other. Blacks from whites. Women from men. Gays from straights. Liberals from conservatives. We can’t even seem to be friends with people in different political parties. And you want more of this?!

This is one of the biggest threats to our country, and you want more of it. If we separate everyone from everyone else, this isn’t a country anymore! And we can’t function as one if no one wants anything to do with anyone outside of their box. Get out of your damn box, mingle with each other, learn something, and for God’s sake, learn to get along! And stop voting for extremists!


Terminally Ill Woman’s Insurance Company Will Pay for Her Assisted Suicide, But Not for Chemo

The Washington Times reported that the California Assisted-suicide law prompted an insurance company to deny coverage to a terminally ill California woman.

Bradford Richardson, from the Washington Times reported that Stephanie Packer, a wife and mother of four who was diagnosed with a terminal form of scleroderma, said that her insurance company initially indicated it would pay for her to switch to a different chemotherapy drug based on the recommendation of her doctors but shortly after the California assisted suicide law went into effect, her insurance company denied her treatment.

Richardson reported Packer as saying:

“And when the law was passed, it was a week later I received a letter in the mail saying they were going to deny coverage for the chemotherapy that we were asking for,”

She said she called her insurance company to find out why her coverage had been denied. On the call, she also asked whether suicide pills were covered under her plan.

“And she says, ‘Yes, we do provide that to our patients, and you would only have to pay $1.20 for the medication,’”Mrs. Packer said.

This is disturbing beyond words.

I will say this. Assisted suicide is not an option where I live. And when my father was diagnosed with brain cancer (for those who don’t know, my father was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme in 2014 and he passed away in April 2016) his claim was also denied for chemotherapy and radiation. He was on Medicare with a supplemental insurance, although I am not 100% sure who he had that insurance with.My parents ended up having to apply for a grant that would only pay a portion of the cost of the chemo and radiation. They got the grant, but lost it when the hospital basically just stopped administering treatment in hopes of forcing the VA to take over (it was, basically, because my father was a pain in the ass as the disease progressed, and they didn’t want to deal with him anymore; this was told to us in kinder terms).

People keep telling me this is what Obamacare is here to solve. But considering he was on Medicare and Obamacare was already active law, I highly doubt the government is suddenly going to help pay for cancer treatments of terminally ill old people so they can get a little more time and maybe some quality of life, which my father ended up not having either of.

This woman… look, I know the illness is terminal. But this woman obviously wants whatever time she has left. To me, that isn’t a waste of money. A lot of people with terminal illnesses have gone on to live long lives. Young, old, it shouldn’t matter. These are human beings. I honestly don’t care if someone with a terminal illness wants to end their life. I can understand it completely, and I would be lying if I said I was against it. If the person is of sound mind and this is what they want, then fine, give them suicide pills (my father should have not qualified if it had been option here, since he was not of sound mind). But if they want their time… give them that time!

I am not, however, going to blame this law for the denial of her treatment. As I said, my father’s was denied as well, and assisted suicide is not an option here. I don’t know many folks who had insurance grant payment for chemo and radiation on terminal illnesses. Does that suck? Hell yes it does. I think it should be granted for people who want that time.


Consider This Your Weekly Chuckle…

But Ann Wurtzburger is a money-grubbing seahag, so the reason she’s suing KFC for $20 million is because the bucket of chicken she bought for $20 was only half full of chicken.

If you’re thinking, “Could she not have simply gone back to the KFC and asked them to fill the bucket up?” then congratulations.  You’re a normal human being.

But Ann Wurtzburger isn’t.  She said, about her ordeal:

“I came home and said, ‘Where’s the chicken?’ I thought I was going to have a couple of meals. They’re showing a bucket that’s overflowing with chicken. You get half a bucket! That’s false advertising, and it doesn’t feed the whole family. They’re small pieces!”

Ann Wurtzburger told the New York Post that KFC offered her $70 worth of gift certificates, but she sent them back, because she says this is about “the principle of the matter.”  She went on:

“Sometimes you gotta hit people where they feel the hurt. For me, a corporation like that – would be in the pocketbook.”

I am thinking this one will get thrown out. And if it doesn’t, it may be time to reevaluate our legal system. This is a frivolous lawsuit if I ever saw one.

Besides… it’s a bucket of chicken. Did you not look inside the bucket before you left with it?!


Electoral College Q&A: What happens if no one obtains a majority (270) of electors?

The Constitution provides two ways that a candidate may be elected President: First, he or she can obtain a majority of electors during the meetings of the Electoral College. There are currently 538 electors, so it takes 270 electors to win an election in this way. This is how we are used to seeing Presidents elected!

But what if no one gets a majority? If no candidate obtains at least 270 electors, then the Constitution provides a back-up election procedure: an election in the House of Representatives. This secondary election process is commonly referred to as the House contingent election.

The last time we held a House contingent election was after the 1824 election, so it’s been a while!

Secret Service Endorses Donald Trump?


Source: BOMBSHELL: Secret Service Endorses Donald Trump!

Please note: I cannot confirm that this is legit. I just spent some time on their Twitter account, where this apparently came from, and this tweet is not available. There is also no information on their website about an official endorsement of Donald Trump or any other candidate. So take this for what it is worth. Just letting you know since it is getting picked up by a lot of sites.

Full Speech: Donald Trump in Gettysburg, PA 10/22/16

Since the media didn’t give it much time, since he didn’t fart into the mic or something.
