Late Afternoon Saturday Conversation Between a Man and a Woman Lying on a Bed*



Woman:

Listen to this. JFK during his presidential campaign wouldn't let Sammy Davis Jr. near him because he had married a white woman and he didn't want the southern segregationists to be offended.  Then later, Sammy Davis Jr. switched parties with Sinatra and embraced Nixon -- can you believe that? Literally hugged him.

Man:

I was never into Sinatra. F*^k Sinatra.

Woman:

I know, but Sammy Davis? 

Man:

F*&k Sammy Davis.

Woman:

Did you hear that in Florida, teachers can be armed inside of elementary schools?

Man:

F*^K Florida.

Woman:

My God. This story about Kelly joining the board of the company that runs those facilities that house unaccompanied minors -- the migrant children thing -- did you hear about that? 

Man:

F*^k John Kelly.

Woman:

I think I'm going to be sick. These might as well be concentration camps! The biggest one is in Florida! They've received and will continue to receive hundreds of millions of dollars in federal contracts! It's taxpayer money! My god! It's like a concentration camp! 200 beds in a room to house the older teenagers! The workers claim that the kids think of it as a "slumber party!" What is this? What is wrong with these people? What is wrong with Kelly?

Man:

F*^ Kelly. F*^k Florida.

Woman:

What is wrong with this country? Between that evil guy from INSYS found guilty for racketeering in the opioid case  -- the same company that derided me and my colleagues at an epilepsy event when we participated on a panel about cannabis medicine -- the same company that is busy pushing opioids and developing a pharmaceutical grade CBD -- and yesterday's 2-hour unsuccessful battle I had with Blue Shield of CA who's decided to deny coverage of Sophie's IVIG until further"review" -- well, my god. 

Man:

Take notes. Write about it.








* The man quoted in this post is the kind of man who almost never uses curse words. The woman quoted consistently rants and raves, peppering her language frequently in those rants with curses.

  2. I said to my husband when I saw the first photographs of kids in cages "There's some politicians lining their pockets with government (our) money from "housing" these kids". Well, now we know one of them by name, John Kelly. I'd be ashamed to be related to him. When I think about these Florida facilities,and the facilities along the border, I think Concentration Camps, just as you did. The politicians and their closest buddies are creating a scheming, moneymaking business from incarcerating migrant men, women and children. In some cases even making money from putting migrant children up for adoption without their parents' knowledge or consent. It all makes me cry.

    How do so many people not care that this is going on right here in America? That makes me cuss and cry. I hadn't seen the "slumber party" bullshit line. That just makes me cuss.

    Now that these big money making schemes for housing migrants are firmly established, I wonder if our votes will ever be able to put the brakes on this greed-driven evildoing.

  4. He's fucking right. And you're right too, they're building concentration camps.

  5. Serious, and yet hilarious at the same time. I totally agree with the Man. That's pretty much my mantra about everything right now.
