The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act aka Obama Care is one of the most controversial elements of President Barack Obama's eight years as President of the United States. It's one of the elements that Conservatives hate, but they never seem to have a good reason for the hatred. I can't see why Hospitals or medical Doctors could ever have a hatred for the law. Without the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act being around, impoverished and lower Middle Class patients won't be able to seek health care and therefore an entire cash paying demographic will be gone from a Hospital's financial bottom line. Being a businessman himself, President Elect Donald Trump has to understand and respect that. Or rather, I hope that President Elect Donald Trump understands and respects that. I'm not so sure if that's the case though.
Yeah, Insurance Companies are leading the charge against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act so they could charge more money and not allow health insurance coverage for expensive health care needs. And certain Insurance Companies who are against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are paying President Elect Donald Trump's campaign expenses. And that's the part that worries me. But again, what about the Hospitals. Impoverished and lower Middle Class patients won't be seeking health care at the nearby Hospitals until it's too late without the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Clearly Hospitals are doing better financially because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Just a thought.

Well it's December. It's not the start of Winter, but rather it's the final weeks of Autumn. Still, isn't this the time for snow to fall. Don't get me wrong. I don't get to shovel the driveway. Still, I'd rather that it snow so I don't have to worry about Global Warming. It's weird to be saying that I hope snow falls to assure me that I won't die from Global Warming, but death by Global Warming is of true concern. Environmental regulations imposed upon corporations to prevent Global Warming isn't unnecessary job killing regulations. It's necessary to protect the planet that we live in. Anyway, I'm waiting for it to snow and I'm sure snow will fall sooner or later.

Well, the Gentle Reader and I have made it to December 1, 2016 without incident. I never married nor did I ever produce children. Don't get me wrong, it would be nice to both marry and produce children, but such a thing has yet to occur. I have yet to set up the Christmas Tree. The Christmas Tree will have to be produced from the basement, brought up to the first floor and set up. It's a fake Christmas Tree so it doesn't need to be tossed out and can be reused more than once. Oh yes, Christmas decorations also needs to be set up. Ah yes, so much to do in order for Christmas to begin. And snow. Yes. Snow will need to fall and it still feels like Autumn. Not to worry though because snow will fall. I'm certain of it.

It's unavoidable and it's finally happening. No way to go backwards now because that's impossible. Going forward is the only option. All will be changed. All will be different. Get ready for the huge change because it happens tomorrow. Yes, it's true that tomorrow is December. Tomorrow is the final month for the year 2016. And when next month is over, the year 2016 will be ended forever. When next month is over, the year 2017 will begin. All sorts of fun surprises will be in store for the final month of 2016. Either that or the final month of 2016 will be a month of calm uneventful introspection. Whatever the case may be, the year 2017 is only one month away. I can't wait to see what the year 2017 has in store for the Gentle Reader and myself.

We're getting closer to December. Soon, we'll be further from November. 2016 will soon be in the past. 2017 will soon be the present. Are you ready for Christmas? Are you ready for New Years Day. Both will arrive regardless of your state of preparation. Simply saying that something is set in stone as part of predestination and then doing nothing afterwards isn't enough. You need to get out there and make your perception of reality a solid definite fact. At any rate, if there's something which can only be done on 2016, then you better hurry up because time is running out. Soon, it will be one month to go until 2017. And I'm positive that the year 2017 will be a very exciting year for us all to bear witness to.

It's hard to believe that there's roughly a month left in the year 2016 and then it's all done. Time has sped by much too quickly. Now with the weather getting colder, it's starting to feel like the type of weather that's normally enjoyed when it's getting closer to Christmas time here in Columbus, Ohio. Ok, I'm still wearing light jackets when venturing outside, but that will change when Autumn shifts to Winter in the days to come. Now with Halloween and Thanksgiving done and over with. Soon it will be Christmas and New Years Day before the year 2017 begins. Whatever can only be done in the year 2016, you better get it finished up. Because the year 2016 is getting closer to being concluded regardless of your state of preparation. Time never stands still for those who are unprepared. Time always rewards those who are prepared. And now, it's time to put up the Christmas tree because Christmas time is getting closer.

Fulgencio Batista was the 9th President of Cuba from October 10, 1940 until October 10, 1944 and he had three Prime Minsters serving his government. Jump forward a few years and Fulgencio Batista became the 12th President of Cuba from March 10, 1952 until January 1, 1959. Gonzalo Güell was the fifth and final Prime Minister serving Fulgencio Batista. Fulgencio Batista was a dictator who made life horrible for the Cuban people, but he was the type of dictator who made life tolerable for United States tourism and corporate commerce. So when Fidel Castro took advantage of the frustration of the Cuban citizens, they all rallied to the cause to overthrow Fulgencio Batista causing the friendly to the United States dictator to escape to the Dominican Republic with Gonzalo Güell and thirty-nine other people. Fidel Castro's plan to kill Fulgencio Batista failed.
So who was this Fidel Castro who overthrew friendly to the United States dictator Fulgencio Batista to create a death to the United States dictatorship? Fidel Castro was born in Birán, Holguin Province, Cuba on August 13, 1926. The born out of wedlock son of a wealthy landowning farmer, Fidel Castro became a devout follower of Marxism and Communism at an early age. He formed a hard line Communism army with the intent to overthrow the Cuban Government called the Movement (Later named the 26th of July Movement) and was even thrown in jail in a failed attempt to prevent him from overthrowing the Cuban Government. It wasn't until Fidel Castro and his brother Raul Castro met Communist mercenary Ernesto "Che" Guevara that the Cuban Government finally did fall on January 1, 1959. Ernesto "Che" Guevara would continue to be a part of the Cuban Government until October 3, 1965 when he resigned over the failed attempt to have nuclear weapons installed on Cuban soil. Ernesto "Che" Guevara would then try to establish Communist governments in the Congo and Bolivia when he was captured and killed by the same Bolivian Government that he tried to overthrow on October 9, 1967. Anyway, let's get back to the overthrow of Fulgencio Batista in 1959.
Anselmo Alliegro y Milá was the thirteenth President of Cuba from January 1, 1959 until January 2, 1959. Carlos Manuel Piedra became the fourteenth President of Cuba from January 2, 1959 until January 3, 1959. Manuel Urrutia Lleó became the fifteenth President of Cuba from January 3, 1959 until July 18, 1959. Osvaldo Dorticós Torrado became the sixteenth President of Cuba from July 18, 1959 until December 2, 1976. And through it all, Fidel Castro was the second man in charge of it all as Prime Minister of Cuba from January 1, 1959 until February 24, 2008. Fidel Castro also became the seventeenth President of Cuba from December 2, 1976 until February 24, 2008. On February 24, 2008, Raul Castro, who was part of the Cuban Revolution and was Cuba's first ever Vice President became the eighteenth President of Cuba when Fidel Castro resigned from power due to ill health. Although no longer part of the Cuban Government, he continued to function as Raul Castro's adviser. Fidel Castro died yesterday on November 25, 2016. The Gates of Hell await the arrival of Fidel Castro for all the work he's done to hinder the United States Government. His plan to have nuclear weapons on Cuban Soil almost ended all life on Earth with the Cuban Missile Crises on October 16–28, 1962. The United States Government led by President John F. Kennedy failed to overthrow Fidel Castro with the infamous Bay of Pigs Invasion on April 17–19, 1961. There were many more attempts to assassinate Fidel Castro that also failed. In the end, Fidel Castro died of natural causes and not by invasion, capture nor by assassination. He got tired of waiting for somebody to do him in so he died naturally on his own.

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day and there's plenty of Thanksgiving Day dinner leftovers to compose tonight's dinner. So that's what Mom, my brother Mitchell and I was dining on a few hours ago for dinner. And beyond that was watching a few retro Christmas themed cartoons about Frosty the Snowman on television. And now I'm writing this Internet blog before bedtime and then waking up tomorrow to great the arrival of a brand new day. I'm not sure if there's much Thanksgiving Day leftovers to dine on tomorrow evening except maybe the turkey. But that's something to worry about tomorrow. Today has been a busy day and tomorrow will be even busier and I need to be well rested for it.

I worked at Bob Evans Restaurant for most of the day. When my work shift was done for the day, I returned home. My sister Dani and my brother Mitchell was already there. And from there it was a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner. Then it was a bit of Black Friday shopping before returning home to eat a mixture of chocolate cake and pumpkin pie. And yeah, Black Friday was both chaotic and there was way too much long lines. And there was plenty to eat on Thanksgiving Day. And it was an enjoyable dinner that was enjoyed with relatives. And beyond Thanksgiving Day is Christmas. And it's for the preparation for Christmas that GOD have created Black Friday for us all to enjoy (Or rather, for those with actual money in the wallets to enjoy).

I worked at Bob Evans Restaurant for most of the day. My sister Dani was supposed to pick up my brother Mitchell at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio and have him at Mom's house by the time I returned. However, Dani had to work a shift as an accountant at the Ice Skating Rink where she works and was late to pickup Mitch. Then Dani had to stop by her house to walk the dog because her estranged spouse Jim was out of town with their children. So by the time Dani and Mitch made it to Mom's house, it was close to 11:00 in the evening. So Mom and I ate hamburgers for dinner and saved the Thanksgiving turkey for tomorrow. Tomorrow is a really big day. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day.
