It’s a weird Sunday, because WWWendy came yesterday instead of today. In fact, that makes it feel like Monday. I decided to give myself a treat and ordered a pizza. It should get here in about an hour so I’ll break for lunch before I’m done. Tomorrow please expect no more than a Personal Update or an Open Thread. I have my semi-annual preventive eye cancer screening with Allison, my Ocular Oncological Surgeon. My eyes will be fully dilated, photographed and ultra sounded. The last is like fingernails on a blackboard inside my head. When the torture is over, my vision will be so blurry that I’ll be useless for the rest of the day. It’s an ARGH, but it is necessary. Update: BURP!!

Resembling a local, conservative news site, “The California Republican” is classified on Facebook as a “media/news company” and claims to deliver “the best of US, California, and Central Valley news, sports, and analysis.”
But the website is paid for by Nunes’ campaign committee, according to small print at the bottom of the site.
Hey Asshole! Don’t Californicate California!! RESIST!!
From NY Times: Before his sudden firing last week, the Pentagon official who oversaw military commission trials at Guantánamo Bay was exploring potential plea deals to end the long-delayed prosecution of five suspects in the Sept. 11 attacks, a move that would foreclose the possibility of execution, according to several people familiar with the matter.
No deal was imminent, the people said, but the talks were active and contemplated the defendants — including Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-described architect of the attacks — pleading guilty and probably receiving life sentences. Most of the people spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive deliberations.
At the GOP Gitmo Gulag, nothing short of state sponsored murder will satisfy the Party of Death! RESIST!!
