Happy 4th of July — see your ass at work tomorrow

First of all, Happy Birthday United States.  Second, Wednesday holidays stink.   And now today’s 236th Anniversary jackass:

GOP congressional candidate Chris Collins knows health care is expensive these days, but he argues it’s for good reason: People are no longer dying from deadly forms of cancer…

“People now don’t die from prostate cancer, breast cancer and some of the other things,” he told The Batavian in an interview that was flagged Tuesday by City & State NY. Collins was discussing his desire to repeal Obamacare.

This not dying thing comes as pretty good news for the 68,000 people who died from breast or prostate cancer last year.

But maybe what Mr. Collins meant is that those can afford medical care because they have good insurance do not die, you know like people wealthy enough to run for Congress.

Here’s what I would like Mr. Collins, fewer candidates who proclaim they “love America” but do not seem too crazy about “Americans”.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
