trump(s) - post presidency

Republicans should call that bluff. Starting a political party is nigh on impossible these days, particularly if you're a day-trader like Trump with no real commitment to anything other than self-aggrandizement. Nonsense; I’m sure his political party will be every bit as successful as his foray int...

Republicans Behaving Badly

Imagine my surprise to read that leading Republican senate warhawk Tom Cotton may have exaggerated his military record, claiming to be an "Army Ranger" in Iraq and Afghanistan. He graduated from the Ranger school, but that's not at all the same thing as being an actual Army Ranger in a spe...

Madison Cawthorn RWNJ in the Congress

So his main qualification for being a member of Congress is, he went to a third-tier college for one semester and then dropped out. And he's a right-wing nutcase. Cawthorn didn't go to any ordinary third-tier university. He went to Patrick Henry College, which is designed for fundamentalists who ho...

Cringeworthy Advertisements

fartypants.jpg Why does that look like a shoop? I'm reasonably certain that polite society in the 1930s to 1950s would not have condoned the frequent use of the word "fart" or related terms in an advertisement. It reminds me of this one, which is fun but definitely bogus: https://2.bp.blo...

Treating chronic pain

Hello. Speaking of treating chronic pain, I am having R hip replacement surgery on Thursday 1-21. I cannot take Naproxyn which is the only pain killer that works for me. Probably will come home from surgery with opioids. I went through this with my L hip 10 years ago, which turned out very very wel...

I think Dominion has a defamation case. (Not sure if it's just slander per se or also libel. Libel has to involve a "permanence" of the medium of defamation.) I think the damages may be excessive but that can be resolved by an ad damnum motion. I would guess $50 million is in the ballpark...
