Bette Midler: It’s easier to kill somebody with a gun than to get health insurance

Or maybe abortion reform, Bette?

Some questions will perhaps forever go unanswered by Midler:

According to Midler, that’s because it’s easier than getting health insurance, or something.

Bette Midler: Republicans ‘did everything they could’ to ensure an allied loss in World War II, or something

Bette Midler: Radical right ‘fuming’ that health premiums will decrease 50 percent in New York

  • Blake Waymire

    Interestingly, it’s generally the government’s fault that it’s so hard to get health insurance. Hm…

    • Jay Stevens

      The same is true about guns, so that is a wash.

  • brando

    Because guns are the only thing that cause murder

    • ObamaFail

      You’ll have to excuse Bette Midler. She’s a washed up hack who gives a stupid opinion about things she knows nothing about to try to stay in the public eye.

      • tops116

        You’d think she could form a support group with Cher, Sarah Silverman and so many other entertainment washouts.

    • Rabiddogg

      Midler remembers back in the day when people used their sling shots and and spears. She was a victim of a drive by chariot attack at her sweet 16 party

      • Jill

        Little known fact- Her hit song, “The Wind Beneath My Wings”, was an homage to her old classmate Icarus.

          I guess when his wings melted, that’s when she started bemoaning climate change.

    • tops116

      Tsarnaev brothers use a bomb to kill and maim innocent people? “…Uh, I hope a white guy did it and if not, shut up and call ‘Rolling Stone’ for this cover idea I just got.”
      One Tsarnaev gets shot and then run over? “GUNS ARE EVIL!”

  • ObamaFail

    Well, under Obama and his stupid policies, it’s easier to buy a gun than it is to find a job.

  • URGR82

    Its also easier for Hollywood actresses to make millions while other families and people starve…….to death….toooooo death. Unhorde all your cash and help them! No! I didn’t think so.

    • Damien Johnson

      I know! Notice how the “rich” don’t pay their “fair share”- which, it’s possible that rich folk could pay slightly more but I’m sure my idea of what slightly more means is different from a liberal’s-but this conversation never includes the overpaid celebrities and talking heads they worship.

      • URGR82

        Damien…I would never use “fair share” just because no one can show me the math behind it. You got more so you need to pay me more…that doesn’t work for me especially when no one can say what they/we are paying into. The rich need to pay more into what?…pay more into a government that wastes money….government that spends money on failed programs and hands it out to corruptacrats …..fix waste ans spending and then come to me and ask for more money….

        • Damien Johnson

          I agree, especially with your last sentence.

  • ceemack

    First it was “gun control”.

    Then it was “common-sense regulations”.

    Then it was “gun safety”.

    Now it’s “gun reform”.

    What euphemism will they come up with next?

    • alanstorm

      I’m betting on “extra-special double-secret weapon misuse nullification” or the mellifluous acronym ESDSWMN.

      Should I buy a vowel?

      • Jay Stevens

        I am not sure. I heard a rumor that, along with ammunition, our government is going to start rationing vowels. I mean, how many vowels do you really need?

    • Texan357

      She doesn’t understand that “reform” means stripping all limitations. Immigration “Reform” and Control (LOL) Act (IRCA)? The National Organization for the “Reform” of Marijuana Laws (NORML)?

      Sure. “gun reform.” “Now.”

      • ceemack

        I’ll take some of THAT reform!

      • alanstorm

        Texan, it is not at all clear that she understands anything at all.

      • Jay Stevens

        Works for me. Maybe we can offer a reciprocal deal. We will give them immigration “reform” if they give us gun “reform”.

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Uh, “Climate Chaos”? Oops, wrong soapbox, sorry!

    • tops116

      “Phony scandal.” Oh wait, that’s an accurate description of the Democrats’ soapbox. Never mind.

  • The Penguin

    You mean like late term abortions?

    • TocksNedlog

      ALL abortions.

  • The Penguin

    So.F*cking. Dumb.

  • notenoughtime

    It’s easy to purchase an illegal gun from the subculture that has no reason to purchase health care or provide for any of their basic needs. It’s the rest of us who foot the bill. FYI, Pres. O has made the affordability of healthcare outside of the reach of most hardworking individuals who are self pay. Far too many of us have left the “it’s all your fault” train. It is uncanny, Midler and Joy Behar seem to be one in the same person and together still do not make one intelligent individual.

    • Jay Stevens

      Have you ever seen both in the same room at the same time?

  • Garth Haycock

    It’s good to see that Ms. Midler agrees that Obamacare is disaster.

    Bette Midler: Still ugly as a mud fence. Still dumber than a sack of hammers.

    • CatHerder

      Point for the mud fence reference.

    • alanstorm

      A sack of hammers, or a box of rocks? The distinction, is CRITICAL, dammit…

      • GaryTheBrave

        Which weighs more, a 10 lb box of rocks or a ten-pound sack of hammers?

        • Clete Torres


        • Jay Stevens

          The box of rocks. Everyone knows that boxes weigh more than bags.

          • GaryTheBrave

            Not the one I’m married to.

      • erehwon

        Around here, it’s a bag full of hammer *handles*. We don’t even credit them with whole hammers.

  • CDUB

    Actually, anyone can get health insurance. Pre-Barry Care, you would buy it privately if you were self employed, part time or your company didn’t offer it.

    Post Barry Care, all ya’ll all gonna pay! Taxes, fines, fees whatever, especially you 20 somethin’s that don’t want or need it…… Enjoy!!

    And leave my guns out of it you old, tired, hagged out Biddy.

    • tops116

      “all ya’ll all gonna pay”

      Unless you’re a Congressional Democrat or Obama himself. For “some reason,” they deemed themselves not good enough for the legislation they deemed worthy of us.

      • CDUB

        Correct……. mostly star struck low info voters are going to be in for a world of hurt next year! While my plan will suffer, ain’t nothin’ like what is coming their way………. Oh the looks on their little commie faces will be priceless…

  • CombatDiver

    It’s also easier to kill a baby in the womb than it is to get health insurance. Wonder why that is?

  • 2ifbyT

    This woman is so stupid.

  • TugboatPhil

    Under Obama, it’s much easier for a Mexican drug gang to get an American gun in Mexico than it is for a US citizen serving the President to get assistance in Libya while being attacked by Al Qaeda.

    • CatHerder

      And the beat-down goes on…

  • BoscoBolt

    Skull full of mush.

  • Jeremy

    Hey Bette Midler-

    You are stupid
    Everyone with common sense.

  • TocksNedlog

    What’s so different about today?

    Taking a life in America has been easier ever since 1972.

  • waterytart

    Well Bette, a gun is cheaper……..and, I’d rather have the ability to avail myself of the “final solution” as opposed to death panels choosing it for me, thank you very kindly.

  • mijo136

    So one involves pulling a trigger and the other involves filling out some paperwork. What’s your effing point!

    Bette: “Doin’ stuff iz hard!”

    • tops116

      To be fair, we’re all going to be saying that when Obamacare kicks in and get a pile of forums. Too bad we can’t mark that exempt box the way Congressional Democrats did.

  • Snarky D

    It’s easier to plug my ears than listen to Bette Middler’s obnoxious rambling.

  • John Smith

    Idiot hag.

  • Snarky D

    It’s easier to get an abortion than a concealed carry permit.

  • TDS

    Let’s see.

    Approximately 10% of the population was un/under-insured, which caused us to get Obamacare.
    So, by Bette’s logic, over 90% of the population has killed someone with a gun.
    Holy crap!

    • tops116

      “So, by Bette’s logic, over 90% of the population has killed someone with a gun.”

      You mean in America overall or just Chicago?

      • TDS

        According to her, ALL of America…
        But I DO see your point.

  • nickdqwk

    What a Sl*tb*g

  • missyree68

    Bette is just vapid and speaks without a clue as to what she is talking about. Give the thinking people a break and hang up your keyboard and pad. Take a nap.

  • PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Or kill someone with a car. Or a heroin overdose. Hey! Maybe heroin should be illegal!


  • el_polacko

    so was michelle malkin beaten with a bette midler record as a child or what ? can one day go by without this obsession with midler’s every tweet ??

  • tops116

    “Do you find it odd that in America today, it’s easier to take a life than to get health insurance?”

    Welcome to Obamacare, Bette.

  • MLCross

    In Bette’s defense, she really did have a nice set of sweater kittens at one point.
    Yeah, no, that’s all I got.

  • Right Wired

    Sorry Bette, we all can’t put a 6’4″ criminal on the ground with our faces like you can.

  • AZWarrior

    It is also easier to mix cement that to get a face-lift. Duh!

  • Jay Stevens

    Bette Midler: “It’s easier to kill somebody with a gun than to get health insurance”

    True, but the police generally regard that as an overreaction and an example of poor social skills.

  • TocksNedlog

    You don’t know, Bette!
