Lucky you live anywhere else: California lawmakers are weighing DOUBLING taxes to pay for a single-payer health care system that would cover all illegal aliens. California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) last Monday proposed a budget that would give all illegal aliens health coverage. In 2019, California extended health coverage to illegals 26 and under. In 2021, California began covering illegals over the age of 55. Now Newsom wants ALL illegals in California to have health coverage, and Californians may see a tax increase of roughly $12,250 per household. Now that would be on top of the $18,114 in STATE tax, then add Federal taxes, the average 70k a year family will be getting just over ½ of the income they earn.
Long weekend in Chicago: 33 shot, 5 dead. In the middle of winter where the average temp has been 43 degrees.
Dear Lord what are they thinking: The 17-year-old boyfriend of a teen girl who was shot and killed in southwest Houston has been released from jail after he was arrested for her murder. Frank Deleon Jr., 17, posted his $250,000 bond Wednesday morning, according to court records. He’s charged with the murder of 15-year-old Diamond Alvarez. Alvarez was outside, walking her dog named “Peanut” when she was found shot 22 times. Repeating, 22 times. Alvarez’s gunshot wounds were consistent with her laying on her back on the ground at the time of her murder. When arrested, a suitcase was found in his room, packed with enough belongings for more than an overnight trip. Information also points to Deleon asked for the meeting with Alvarez. So, he planned the crime, he’s under age so it was an illegal firearm, he shot her while she was on the ground, he shot her 22 times, and was packed to leave town. (Country?) And he gets out on $250k bond? Am I the only one thinking he won’t stick around?
No freakin’ surprise: Biden has spent a quarter of his presidency at his Delaware homes, including half his weekends with just 10 of them at the WH. Why is anybody surprised at this? It’s not like he’s running the country of anything. The biggest question about this, how many people (and who were they) visited him there so. Did they visit him there so there would be no record of the visit? Or was it so they weren’t seen visiting him? Actually, those are important question that should, but probably won ‘t, be answered.
No. No I’m not switching: In Thailand, the demand for crocodile meat has exploded as local consumers are hit by a spike in the price of pork. It’s high in protein, low in fat, and traders say it tastes just like chicken. With Thais looking to crocodile meat as an alternative to pork, crocodile farmers have welcomed the windfall. I’ve eaten “gator tail”, and it didn’t taste like chicken. I guess it’s all in the spices. And yes, you can buy “canned gator tail” from Amazon.
A sad Good-Bye: Legendary Country Music Broadcaster Ralph Emery passed away on Jan. 15 at the age of 88, according to the Country Music Association. Emery’s career spanned over 50 years and saw an induction into the 1989 Country Music Disc Jockey Hall of Fame, as well as an induction into the 2007 Country Music Hall of Fame. Maybe the gods just needed a great MC. He, and his wonderful voice, will be missed.
Looking at “ETSY”: Under “Gifts for Him” they have a “personalized cheese board”. HUH? Oh, it says for “him” not for a “man”. Sorry for the mistake.
Hey, thanks for the prayers. My Brother Dan is sitting, talking, no tubes in him. There is going to be a long rehab time, but he’s on the right track. And he’s tough. Staying in Honolulu this weekend. Enjoy the story and consider the rant.
