I had an appointment to see a urologist who shared an office with several other doctors.
Spoiler Alert: Although I agree with the premise of this well written article, the author suggests a Majority Leader to replace McConnell. I agree that he must be replaced, but not with someone who has a Conservative Review Liberty Score of ‘F’ (59%). If the Senate decides to go to the trouble of replacing the dirtbag McConnell, why do it with another “moderate?”
from Conservative Review:
In a not-so-subtle chess move late last week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., sent a signal to his rank-and-file that the time is coming to capitulate to Democrats on health care reform. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., did not hesitate to exploit the weakness (emphasis mine):
It’s encouraging that Sen. McConnell today acknowledged that the issues with the exchanges are fixable, and opened the door to bipartisan solutions to improve our health care system. As we’ve said time and time again, Democrats are eager to work with Republicans to stabilize the markets and improve the law.
Mystery Solved: Now We Know Why Comey Did Nothing About Hillary
No wonder former FBI Director James Comey refused to press charges last summer against Hillary Clinton for her egregious security breaches: It turns out, he may have been guilty of the same thing.
As the inside-the-beltway political publication The Hill reported, more than half of the memos FBI Director James Comey wrote after having spoken to President Trump about the Russia investigation contained classified information. The Hill cites as its sources “officials familiar with the documents.”
Not surprisingly, perhaps, Trump on Monday morning tweeted out an angry response: “James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!”
We’ve all had a moment where an extra pair of hands would have been incredibly useful, but who has ever wondered what they could do with just an extra thumb? London-based designer Danielle Clode not only wondered, but went on to build one. Her 3D-printed, foot-controlled, Third Thumb offers an insight into how prosthetics can do more than just replace disabled limbs, but actually extend our natural abilities.

From Federal, to States and municipalities, there are an almost immeasurable amount of laws. So many that no one could possibly know them all, much less keep track of them.
What we do know is the phrase, ignorantia legis neminem excusat. Okay – maybe we don’t all know Latin – but we have heard the English translation – Ignorance of Law Excuses No One. It’s legalese that means a person who is unaware of a law may not escape liability for violating that law merely because one was unaware of its existence. In other words – if a law says some action (or inaction) is a crime and you commit it, you’re guilty. The principle is also one of the first that students learn in law school. It’s pretty simple and pretty straight forward.
There are things throughout history that one can point to and say, “That changed everything.” Things like electricity, indoor plumbing and gunpowder.
Then there are others we can point to as simply upgrades or improvements to the original design. Things like fuel injection, the self-contained rifle cartridge or “Hot Shots! Part Deux.”
Sorry about the technical glitch folks. Had some issues I needed to take care of with my server, but I’m back up.
Information is power when a soldier is enveloped by the fog of war. Precisely locating the positions of both friends and foes is key for a mission to roll out both smoothly and without avoidable casualties. The US Army has just revealed its latest innovation, a head-up display system for soldiers called “Tactical Augmented Reality,” or TAR.
In the great days of the British Empire, a new commanding officer was sent to a South African bush outpost to relieve the retiring colonel. After welcoming his replacement and showing the usual courtesies (gin and tonic, cucumber sandwiches, etc.) which protocol decreed, the retiring colonel said, “You must meet my Adjutant, Captain Smithers, he’s my right-hand man and is really the strength of this office. His talent is simply boundless.”
Smithers was summoned and introduced to the new CO, who was surprised to meet a hunchback, one-eyed, toothless, hairless, scabbed and pockmarked specimen of humanity, a particularly unattractive man less than three feet tall.
