I slept better last night, even though the pain has not diminished.  I'm not sure what or how much I'll be publishing tomorrow, because Wendy is coming to deodorize the TomCat and help with several other needed tasks.

From YouTube (Media Matters Channel): Why aren't news outlets talking about climate change?

 

On the other hand, climate change might have a positive side, if Mar-a-Lago sinks when Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten is there.

From NY Times: The Heritage Foundation, a powerful conservative think tank that played a significant role in shaping President Trump’s cabinet and tilting it far to the right, is expected to replace its leader, the former South Carolina senator and Tea Party leader Jim DeMint.

The anticipated shake-up, which was confirmed by two people with knowledge of the fraught internal dynamics, comes at an inopportune time for the group, with several major pieces of conservative legislation on the agenda in Congress. The budget, a tax overhaul and health care are all issues that Heritage has tried to influence, with varying degrees of success.

A spokesman for the foundation did not return a request for comment.

Mr. DeMint’s abrupt ouster, described by people as a “coup” against him, was the result of a larger debate among conservative donors who fund the group. One of its board members is Rebekah Mercer, a reclusive donor who has helped propel the White House chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, in his effort to dismantle aspects of the political establishment.

It appears that a mere KKK supporter is no longer extreme enough for Heritage Foundation. :Look for am Alt-Right Nazi replacement.

I still feel horrid, but the new meds must be starting to help, because I slept three hours last night.  I'm going back to bed, but even half dead I can't resist Keith and Sam.  Hugs!  RESIST!!

In the last few days, I’ve shared a couple really troubling articles, so I guess I owe you the next bad news in a more enjoyable format.  What better choice couls there be for that in Samantha Bee.  She even found a former judge that Fuhrer Drumpfenfarten might take on a Russian hotel games tour, before appointing him to SCROTUS (Republican Constitutional VD).

If Rump Dump Rectum wants to make a deal on health care, let him propose Medicare for All. Don’t hold your breath!

No Republican should ever get to run unopposed, especially not Pussy Grabber, Jr.!!

Enjoy the chuckle.  Then…

I’m still way south of healthy, but I want to try to post normally for a day.  I know I won’t be able to do so tomorrow, because Wendy is coming a day and a half early to de-stink the TomCat, before she goes to Colorado.  Wednesday is up in the air, as it’s a grocery delivery day.  The pain is still quite severe, but it hurts as much or more in bed, as it does here.

From Washington Post: REP. PETER DEFAZIO (D-Ore.) has a long record of clever legislative proposals for financing infrastructure. His latest, announced Wednesday, is to increase the federal gas tax by up to 1.5 cents per year, with proceeds going to pay interest on an annual surface transportation bond issue of $17 billion through 2030. It would be the first hike in the gas tax, currently 18.4 cents per gallon, since 1993. The resulting dollars would pay for a 30 percent increase in spending from the Highway Trust Fund, above what’s currently planned.

Oregon leads the way. Of course it’s too rational for Republicans to pass. RESIST!!

I’m still sick, but my body demands a couple upright hours.  This is my only article today.  Congrats and kudos to Lona and the Netherlands for remaining a socially democratic republic.  I hope that one day, the US will become one.  In the meantime, I wonder of the Fuhrer will put Geert to work in the Rectum Reich.

From The New Yorker: At a press conference on Tuesday morning, Ben Carson, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, told reporters that people who are pushed out of windows are “extremely lucky” because they get “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fly through the air.”

“Ever since the dawn of civilization, mankind has been enchanted by the dream of flight,” Carson said. “People who get pushed out of windows get to realize that cherished dream.”

“That’s what makes America a great country,” he continued. “People are pushed out of windows every day here.”

Sorry Andy. I don’t believe you. The link between getting pushed out a window and the brief similarity between falling and flight is far too great an intellectual hurdle for Braindead Ben. RESIST!!
