Obamacare-Hatin' Sheriff Wants You To Pay His Medical Bills For Him, Because He Ain't Got No Obamacare


Former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack is the man who proposed using women as human shields at the Bundy Ranch last year. As you might expect, he's an older "gentleman," and he does not care for Obummercare. Pity that, since both he and his wife are recovering from serious illnesses, and they're learning firsthand just how painful medically induced bankruptcy can be. Unfortunately, Sheriff Mack's principles simply will not allow him to save tons of money and also maybe his own life and that of his wife by enrolling in an ACA-approved plan. So, like any self-reliant rugged individualist, he is begging people to give him money. Talking Points Memo tells us more.

The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care.

"Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance," reads a note on Mack's personal website. [...] "It is difficult and humbling to say that we need your help, but we do."

Gee, we know some people who are self-employed, and thus couldn't buy insurance for love or money. Then this weird thing happened: the United States Congress passed a bill mandating that insurance companies had to sell insurance to all comers, even self-employed ones, even if they had pre-existing conditions, and the president signed it into law! Huh.

Here, we can see the sinister genius of the Affordable Care Act at work. The Dusky-Hued Kenyan Usurper won't even need to death-panel Sheriff Mack and his wife, since he's already death-paneled their willingness to work. However, it's not clear why Sheriff Mack can't just suck it up and go find a job while he's recovering from a heart attack — Yr Wonket was under the impression that hardworking Real Americans like Sheriff Mack could handle their health insurance just fine without the help of jack-booted bureau-thugs from Washington.

Gosh, if only there were a law that gave subsidies to people like Sheriff and Mrs. Mack, so they could buy health insurance from a private-sector insurer and thus protect both their physical health and their precious f*cking principles...

Oh wait! That law does exist, and it is called Obamacare, and if Sheriff Mack could summon the testicular fortitude to climb down from his high horse, it might actually, literally save his life. Still, we wish Sheriff Mack luck with crowdfunding his medical treatments, because if Tea Partiers actually believe the things they say, it might be difficult to elicit their sympathies.

What do you think, Wonketeers? Will Tea Partiers step up and prove that charity starts at home? Or will they go Full Drago on Sheriff and Mrs. Mack in an attempt to teach them a valuable (read: fatal) lesson about Personal Responsibility? It is Yr Wonket's sincere hope that both Macks make swift and speedy recoveries. It is also our sincere hope that these old, cranky people will change their minds, admit they were wrong, and live a more empathetic life.

We are not holding our breath on that one, because have you ever met an old person who lives in Arizona? Still, we encourage you to kill Sheriff Mack with kindness: here's a link to his GoFundMe page. Drop him $5 and a note reminding him what a shithead he's been regarding access to affordable health care.

Robbin Young. Fair use so we can all see the boob picture she sent to her 12 true loves.

Robbin Young starred in the Roger Moore masterpiece For Your Eyes Only as the seventh female lead, "Girl in Flower Shop." She also starred in a bunch of Playboys, and the DM's of a humble Romanian hacker who stole her heart. But he was not a humble Romanian hacker, he was 12 Russian military intelligence officers in a trench coat. And now Young has shared those DMs and pictures of her buzzies with the Sun, because that's the one that's fookin' classy.

See how she loved! See how Guccifer ghosted her ass! See how she loves him (them) still! See how she was all up in Seth Rich and shit! (We think Young's judgment might not be awesome.) Also she wrote this "erotic poem," and we're going to need you to read it.

And now it is time for your weekly reminder that in the Trump era, FUCKING APESHIT OUTRAGE WORKS.

On Monday, Donald Trump, the transactional president who for some godforsaken reason sees Vladimir Putin has his one true father, discussed making an Art Of The Deal with Russia that involved letting Robert Mueller interrogate the Russian spies who hacked America in 2016 (with Russian supervision, of course, in Russia) in exchange for sending Putin whichever American citizens hurt Putin's poor fragile butthurt pansy-ass feelings the past several years. One of Putin's targets is Michael McFaul, the former ambassador to Russia, whom Putin just hates. Hillary Clinton isn't on the official list yet, but give it a few weeks.

On Wednesday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders looked at reporters and told them Trump's people were considering the idea, but hadn't decided yet, because it's so hard for the Trump administration to decide how many treasons to do per week.

But hooray! The White House has decided that, after literally every American with a patriotic bone in his or her body said, "THE FUCK YOU SAY," they will not send Americans to Putin's gulag after all. The Washington Post reports:

The White House announced Trump's opposition Thursday as the Senate prepared to vote on a resolution telling the president not to honor Putin's request, which would have exposed former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul, among others, to Russian questioning.

"It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

Oh my fucking Lord, Shuckabee, did you really type that Putin's offer was "sincere," or did Donald grab the statement after you finished with it and add those words in illiterate Sharpie in the margins, along with "DOES NOT MEAN PUTIN IS NOT MY BEST FRIEND" and "NO COLLUSION"?

By the way, that resolution passed the Senate with flying colors:

WOMP WOMP, Trump! Sorry American freedom and democracy stepped all over your dick again! Guarantee it's gonna happen again! Go fuck yourself! Enjoy the 48 Big Macs you have for dinner tonight! Don't talk directly into the soccer ball Putin gave you, 'less you want it to talk back to you in Russian!

OK post over.
