My closing thought of the day…..30Dec16
A few years ago IST use to award a special prize, The “Assie” Awards, to the person that made the most stupid comment…past winners have been people like McCain and others….it was discontinued because there was not much participation…..you see I would post the nominees and let my readers vote for the one that was the biggest anal statement of the year.
After much thought and few people wanting to see the awards return I have decided to give it a try again….but this time the name will be changed to the Asshat Award from the original Anal-ocity Award.
I will attempt to award a monthly “Assie” and then those 11 winners will compete for the Annual “Assie”……please during this time if anyone sees or hears something they think would be a winner let me know….if it is used I will give credit to the person and/or blog that turned me onto it.
The monthly winners will be posted on the last day of the month….the month of December will not have a monthly winner so that IST can concentrate on the annual winner.
Since I decided this recently there was NO time for an annual thing so I found what I considered a bonehead statement for the 2016 award…..
2016 Asshat Award
The 2016 winner of the IST “Assie” Award is GOP rep of Michigan, Bill Huizenga…….
Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-Mich.) says there’s “definitely” going to be changes in health care delivery after Republicans repeal the Affordable Care Act, and people are going to need to take more responsibility for the cost of their treatment.
He gave a personal example of how do this: When his 10-year-old son recently fell on the driveway one evening and injured his arm, Huizenga waited until the next day to take him to the doctor because it cost less than bringing him to the emergency room that night.
I believe that the reason this person won the award is damn obvious……
To the honorable Rep. Bill Huizenga…..congrats on your award……and we at IST look forward to your views in 2017….Good luck. (a copy of this post will be emailed to the office of the winner)
Enjoy your weekend.
