Here in the shiny new CatBox, I’m running late because I slept poorly, overslept, and still feel groggy. I read the results of the Cat Scan. I have a hiatal hernia. I also have two tiny nodes in my left lung (5 mm and 1 mm). I have a routine appt. with my Oncologist to interpret the Cat Scan in 10 days, so I won’t panic until I know I have cause. Tomorrow is a busy WWWendy day, but I’ll try to stay in the saddle, because it’s the last full day of Care2 News.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’s took me 2:44 (average 4:38). To do it, click here. How did you do?
That’s good! Also, Resident Donald Trump, the Tangerine Terrorist, Bought Bitch Moscow Mitch, and many other Republicans should have to pay millions in punitive damages. RESIST!!
From Common Dreams: Disgraced American billionaire and political insider Jeffrey Epstein was reported dead on Saturday morning from an apparent suicide in a New York City jail.
The New York Times reports:
Mr. Epstein hanged himself and his body was found this morning at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan at roughly 7:30.
Manhattan federal prosecutors last month charged Mr. Epstein, 66, with sex trafficking of girls as young as 14, and details of his behavior have been emerging for years.
It makes no sense that Epstein had been removed from suicide watch. I suspect that Epstein’s death may have been a Republicide, not a suicide. He had lots of detailed dirt on a pants-load of super-rich Republican perverts, and he had an incentive to give it up. RESIST!!
From Think Progress: The signature promise of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign was that he would build a massive wall along the nation’s southern border and that not a penny of it would be charged to the American taxpayer. He repeatedly boasted that he would get Mexico to pay for it.
But now that this lie has been all but abandoned, Senate Republicans reportedly plan to divert billions of dollars from health and education to make up the difference.
Roll Call reported on Thursday that Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby (R-AL) has written a Fiscal Year 2020 Labor-HHS-Education spending bill allocation “that is about $5 billion lower than it would have been to provide funding for the wall.” If this proposal gets the 60 votes required for passage in the Senate, it would still need to be negotiated with the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
Shelby has to know this will be shit-canned in conference committee. He’s just grandstanding to make the deplorable Republican Sheeple say BAAA-A-A-A-A!! RESIST!!
