Yesterday’s attempt to return to blogging did not go well. The site where I share articles for wider distribution can be buggy at times. Yesterday it fought me for an hour t0 upload the articles. Then it failed to deliver the notifications I sent to over 200 people. Later, the electrical outlet for my refrigerator failed. Getting at it took over two hours of hard work, and it turned out to be the only outlet in my unit that does not have an internal circuit breaker. Fortunately my groceries did not spoil. So I’m beginning the day behind the curve.

From YouTube: RWW News: Bryan Fischer Says Indiana’s Law Prevents Discrimination Against Christians
Barf Bag Alert!!
This is an example of the lies that Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christians are being taught about this Republican hate-law.
From Nextgen Climate: Watch and share this video if you think climate change denial is ridiculous!
Were this to be played on the Republican Reichsministry of Propaganda, Faux Noise, the sheeple would accept it as factual.
From NY Times: Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey was indicted on bribery charges on Wednesday in what prosecutors said was a scheme to trade political favors for luxury vacations, golf outings, campaign donations and expensive flights.
The indictment, the first federal bribery charges against a sitting senator in a generation, puts Mr. Menendez’s political future in jeopardy. He faces a possible sentence of 15 years in prison for each of the eight bribery counts.
Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, angrily denied wrongdoing and vowed to fight the charges. “This is not how my career is going to end,” he said at a news conference in Newark, where supporters cheered him. “Today contradicts my public service career and my entire life.”
The federal investigation into Mr. Menendez, 61, was well known, and charges had been expected. But the accusations in the 68-page indictment are much broader and more severe than had been publicly known. The senator was also charged with conspiracy and making false statements.
For the good of the party and the nation, Menendez should step down immediately. That said, I have long thought he should be challenged in the primary, because he acts more like a Republican in other ways too.
