Yesterday my Ocular Oncologist's lead technician and head nurse both called in sick. Therefore, I did not get my appointment until after my ride home was scheduled and did not get home from my 11:00 AM appointment until after 4:00 PM. The good news is that the eye is healing well. There was no apparent shrinking of the tumor, but none is expected yet. We'll know if it was successful in six months. The bad news is that there is very little we can do to correct my horrible vision until after my six month evaluation, I'm 20/30+ in my left eye and 20/300 in my right. In addition I have cataracts in both an d gave pronounced double vision I'm getting a late start, because I tried to nap after breakfast. Store to Door is taking this week off, so I'm got my grocery delivery from Safeway.com. I got everything put away. I'm very pooped. Tomorrow I have PT with Courtney. I'm still on light duty, but I trust she'll find some minor tortures. Please expect no more than a personal update tomorrow. For the record, I have nothing to cover the murder of two more innocent black men by police. First, everything I would say is being said already. Second, I just can't wrap myself around how many there have been without screaming.

Today's took me 3:02 (average 4:44). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From Daily Kos: Don Christy is a self-described “patriot” and took it upon himself to join the 4th of July parade of vehicles in the Sheridan, Indiana. Wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and a blonde wig, Christy shocked parade-goers with a doll meant to look like President Obama in a toilet with the words “Lying-African” underneath. From the IndyStar:
"I'm not a Democrat. I'm not a Republican," Christy said. "I'm a patriot."
Christy said he is tired of political correctness and was just trying to be funny. The display was not intended to be racist, he said. Christy agreed that others have a right to be offended, just as he has the right to express his views.
"I apologize to anyone I offended, which would be a total liberal. I have my right to say things," Christy said. "Isn't that what the Fourth of July's about? Freedom.”
As noted by the large Trump signs on top of the golf car, Christy is a big fan of the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. He’s just tired of all this gosh-darned political correctness these days!
Bull!! If this Racist Republican isn't one, then why is he goose stepping with the presumptive rectum of the Republican Party?
From NY Times: On July 28, 2002, roughly eight months before the American-led invasion of Iraq, Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain sent President George W. Bush a personal note that alarmed some of Mr. Blair’s top national security aides — and was greeted with relief in Washington.
“I will be with you, whatever,” Mr. Blair wrote, in what appeared to be a blanket promise of British support if the United States went to war to topple Saddam Hussein, the Iraqi leader. Getting rid of Mr. Hussein was “the right thing to do,” Mr. Blair wrote, predicting that “his departure would free up the region.”
Fourteen years later, Mr. Blair’s pledge was revealed publicly on Wednesday as part of a voluminous, seven-year official investigation into how and why Britain went to war in Iraq.
The main conclusions in the report, by the independent Iraq Inquiry Committee, were familiar: that Britain, like the United States, used flawed intelligence to justify the invasion, that Iraq posed no immediate national security threat, that the allies acted militarily before all diplomatic options had been exhausted and that there was a lack of planning for what would happen once Mr. Hussein was removed.
There was a reason we called Blair "Bush's poodle". Both and more should be imprisoned for life.
From Alternet: Longtime Fox News host Gretchen Carlson shocked the media world on Wednesday by filing a sexual harassment lawsuit against her former boss, CEO Roger Ailes.
In her suit against Ailes, she also alleged that she faced a hostile work environment from many of her male colleagues including former Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy. Looking back on some choice clips of Carlson, we can see signs that she was sending out secret cries for help for years.
Barf Bag Alert!!
I can't help but believe that, after all the years of legs, cleavage, and batting her eyes like an obedient Republican bimbo, she had to know why she was hired. I'm not defending Faux Noise sexism. I abhor it, but she was clearly prostituting herself on camera for so long, that to cry foul at this point is hypocritical.
