I overslept this morning, because I’m overtired from the winter heat wave. Starting tomorrow, temperatures will be seasonal for a few days. I can’t wait for the feeling of snuggling under my covers to stay warm. I spoke with my PCP yesterday afternoon. Megan and I agreed to put my fasting labs and routine appointment off for a month, because the end of flu season is running late, it is more virulent than normal, the vaccine missed the target this year, and it’s airborne. It’s not a good idea for me to expose myself with two routine trips to a place where people with flu routinely hang out. I will, however, be going for my annual cancer screening at Casey Eye Institute on Monday. Coverage of the Winter Olympics has started, and I remain a big-time amateur sports fan.

The White House has known about Porter’s predations for over a year, and didn’t care, even when he could not get his security clearance because of them. Republicans tried to keep Porter indefinitely, even after his resignation, but due to publicity and public outcry, today is his last day. It is a dark day for little Donnie Grabatwat, who depends on Porter to help him develop techniques to abuse women, RESIST!!
From The New Yorker: The Pentagon has turned down Donald J. Trump’s request for a grand military parade in Washington, D.C., citing a sudden outbreak of bone spurs that would prevent men and women in uniform from participating.
Harland Dorrinson, a Pentagon spokesman, said that, within an hour of Trump’s request, more than a hundred thousand military personnel complained that they were suffering from acute cases of bone spurs that would make marching in such a parade a painful ordeal.
“In the history of the U.S. military, we have never experienced a bone-spur epidemic of this magnitude,” the spokesman said. “Regrettably, however, we have no choice but to issue thousands of deferments.”
Dang, Andy! That sounds perfectly reasonable to me. I bet the tanks caught bone spurs too! RESIST!!
From Think Progress: Before Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) became chairman in 2015, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence had a reputation for bipartisanship. With the revelation, reported by CBS News on Thursday, that the committee’s Republican majority staff will soon be separated from the Democratic minority staffers on the committee by a wall — literally, a physical barrier separating public officials from each other — members of both parties are saying Nunes has destroyed any spirit of collaboration the committee once enjoyed.
Is there nothing Nunes won’t do to protect America from the truth about his Fuhrer? RESIST!!
