A response to fireworks idiocy,

in this case the deceased who set off a mortar on his head:
What a terrible shame.
He should have at least lingered long enough to realize how stupid that was.

Well, that didn't take long.  Made comment on Bookface about Obamacare prices going up(again), and got a 'Obamacare saved me!  When you trash Obamacare, what I hear is that you think I should have died for your politics.'

Really?  Pointing out the huge mess this is means 'I think you should have died?'  

I notice the people saying crap like this have no sympathy for all the people getting screwed in this('If you like your plan, you can keep it!'   'My plan will save you $2500/year!'   Etc.)  Oh no, "I say it saved me, so screw everyone else" is just fine.

When someone uses something like this as a serious criticism, and thinks it has merit, it tells you all you need to know:
...I was once criticized for using the expression “true north.” It reflected my Nordo-centrism, my critic said, and my insensitivity to people who live in the Southern Hemisphere. Of course, no such thing had ever crossed my mind, but that points to the problem. ...
Yeah.  Because lost people and navigators in the southern hemisphere don't use north as a reference or something.

Ann Coulter had a book signing, and a bunch of illegal aliens(and activists) showed up and caused some difficulty.  The response:
“You have to understand,” Coulter told Breitbart News, “screaming and defacing things is how Latin Americans express disagreement. At least as long as they were destroying books and screaming in a book store, they weren’t molesting any 4-year-olds.”

Speaking of,
Open-borders advocates typecast every bit as much as does Trump, likewise adducing anecdote in lieu of hard data. If one listens to the exaggerations of Trump, he implies that the majority of arrivals from Mexico are criminally minded. But if one listens to La Raza Inc. or Rep. Gutierrez, illegal aliens seem to be all dreamers. The truth is that impoverished and most indigenous peoples from central Mexico and Central America are neither saints nor sinners, but as a rule arrive without legality, a high school diploma, money, or English, and by needs are quite willing to ignore immigration law both when arriving — and steadily thereafter. (The vast majority — over 80% — from last year’s border surge skipped their required subsequent immigration hearings.)

Obamacare. Being a medical professional; I try to get uninsured folks signed up for insurance through the obamacare networks. (our hospital is sick and tired of medically caring for the "selfpays") Fat chance of that! That strata of protoplasm are too lazy to even investigate this type of insurance. Just last night I could have gotten insurance for a fella for $506 dollars a month AND he could have gotten a subsidy of $500 per month for the insurance. Yep, folks this genetic twit only had to pay the price of a pack of cigarettes and he could have been insured. Did he take the "opportunity of a life time"???? NOPE. Too lazy, he'll think about it, can't see the reason for it (seeing as how the hospital is caring for me without insurance).
Wonder what is going to happen when the ice cream is all gone?

We're going to find out, sooner or later. Probably sooner.

I didn't have a fireworks moment for my salvation. I had a falling in love with Jesus in Sunday school when I was a very young child. See the link below for more info.
