Stephen Colbert Reveals President Trump’s Obamacare Replacement Strategy: The Plan Is No Plan (Video)

‘Brevity is the soul of wit’… and he is evidently witless.

Hahahaaa! Gotta laugh to keep from crying. If we lose the Affordable Healthcare we have, guess what we get in its place. No, seriously, guess. Because I don’t know. I’m hoping maybe you (or somebody, like the current administration) might. In the meantime, who wants a free ‘mermogerm’ though?

On healthcare, not only doesn’t Trump have a plan. He doesn’t have a plan TO MAKE a plan.
– The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Yeah, but bet your pockets he plans to be on Twitter tonight (and every night)!

Politics: President Donald Trump Promised To Protect The Sick And Poor, To Give Them A ‘Better Deal’… And He Is Not… At All (Video)

Wow. Still hard to believe that we elected a U.S. President in much the same way we elected a class president in grade school – the guy that promised spaghetti and pizza for lunch and two recesses every day won… because we bought the lies. But when we did not get more pizza and play time, we lived. This VOX clip illustrates how, with Donald Trump as the ‘head of the class’ as President, many of us might suffer and DIE.

So… What folks hate about Obamacare (The Affordable Care Act) is exactly what Trumpcare (The ‘Higher Cost Care’ Act) will allow MORE of??? That’s not what ANYONE voted for, is it? IS IT?!

Just watch. It’ll make you wanna say, “I can’t…” until you realize ‘you have to’ (because the ‘Yes We Can’ guy is gone).

Science Can Tell You How And When You Will Die (Video)

Science, statistics, and lifestyle can help predict how you will die!

Wow. So… Soften the subject with some cornball music why don’cha… Well, by now you know that death is a fact of life for us all. Not one we choose to focus on a lot, in fact, even when ‘your time’ comes you probably want it to happen unexpectedly, fast, and painlessly… but not for a long time yet. But is that how it will likely go? Turns out that science can let you know.

(Did you know that the macabre topic of mortality is studied by more than just researchers and medical doctors? How about insurance companies and government agencies like the Social Security Administration. Actually, SSA has a document actually called an Actuarial Life Table.)

‘The Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Makes Fun Of His Very Serious Emergency Room Experience (Video)

So, the host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, had to have an emergency appendectomy just days ago. See his comical recount of what was a f#cked up emergency room experience. Besides the ‘waiting room’ shot, this was my fav quip from the above clip: Asked for more info to fill out endless forms while in excruciating (near blackout) pain, Trevor responds,

“What more information do you need, other than the fact that I’m dying?”

Ever a political hot topic in the U.S., many always bring up the fact the MANY nations abroad provide free/better healthcare than America’s. But you may have wondered if folks from other countries say U.S. healthcare is better somehow. Well, let’s hear from someone who has now experienced both.

Play the clip. Laugh through the pain. Welcome back, Noah. Get better soon.

Wesley Warren, Jr. – The Man With The 132-Pound Scrotum (Video)

Think you got the biggest balls? Not really, unless you are one of a relative few affected with Wesley Warren, Jr.’s affliction. Watch the above video in which Warren talks about how it was living with the affliction and how he ended up with a mega-swollen, mega-uncomfortable 132-pound scrotum in the first place. After the jump: at least one thing you want to know… How’s Warren’s sex life?

This is a strange story to be certain; but it is also a sad commentary on the lack of access to healthcare in the U.S., according to Warren.
