A preexisting condition spells the death of a snow person TrumpCare couldn’t help …

Some deaths happen slowly and are hard to watch. But like car wrecks, you can’t avert your eyes.

Can such needless deaths be avoided? Congress is in the midst of determining just that.


What follows below is a sequence of highly graphic, unretouched photos that chronicle the agonizingly slow death of a snow person in the aftermath of Charlotte’s recent snow event.

Warning: If you are easily upset at grisly images of death, TURN AWAY NOW.

Could she/he (their name, F–sty, has been intentionally omitted from this article until next of kin have been notified) have benefitted from TrumpCare? Only Republicans know. (The victim’s preexisting condition – global warming-itis – was reportedly to be excluded from coverage.) Like the average American, snow people are likely to be subjected to substantially higher insurance rates/coverage unavailability than what they experienced under SantaCare.

If you’re concerned about the exclusion of global warming as a preexisting condition, immediately write your Congressman or Senator. As for the snow people, ask Santa to include the pro-TrumpCare legislators on his permanent and irrevocable ‘naughty’ list for this year.

About Dave Bradley (260 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
