Options For Would-Be Tea Party Speaker Daniel "Taliban Dan" Webster Staying In Congress Are Closing

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 hour ago
Daniel Webster has been in the news lately because he's "running" (not really) for House Speaker as the Freedom Caucus/Tea Party candidate. He isn't considered a serious candidate with an actual chance to ever *become* Speaker, just a pawn in the game between the extremists and the mainstream conservative Establishment. But ole "Taliban Dan" is probably happy he's in the news as a potential Speaker rather than as someone who's about to lose his congressional seat. Let's talk about that for a minute. In 2010 Webster was elected in the 8th district in Central Florida. The following y... more »

Trump Has a Two-Front War On His Hands... Jeb And Now Rand Paul

NBC reporter John Harwood sat down with Rand Paul this week and one of the topics was, of course, Donald Trump. Now, keep in mind that the most recent national poll of Republican voters-- from NBC News-- shows Trump leading the field and Paul still, statistically, a third-tier candidate. Trump is at 25% and Paul's at a pitiful 2%, trailing silly characters like Fiorina, Kasich and Huckabee. It must be so galling for Paul, who is trying to campaign on ideas, values, principles and policy solutions he truly believes in, while he sees Trump breezing along with not an honest thought ... more »

The congressman who represents the two most backward counties in South Carolina, Greenville and Spartanburg, is 51 year old fashion-plate Trey Gowdy. Gowdy first came to Congress as a page sponsored by vicious racist Strom Thurmond. It's not clear if he's one of the pages who laid with Mark Foley or not, but Gowdy had fun as a page and decided he wanted to grow up to be a real congressman. He got his chance in 2010 when mainstream conservative Bob Inglis hinted that Climate Change might be real.

Why so many kids today have food allergies? Maybe our tests are the problem

Rich Rifkin at Lexicon Daily - 5 hours ago
Perhaps one reason why there are far more children today diagnosed with food allergies, especially peanut allergies, is that they have symptoms of another ailment, are then tested for food allergies, and they test positively, but it is a poor test. This is exactly what happened in Dallas to “a 15-month-old girl—her stomach, arms and legs swollen and her hands and feet crusted in weeping, yellow scales.” She “was rushed to the emergency room at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.” When eliminating the foods the child had tested allergic to did not clear... more »

"Are There Any Questions?" by Robert Fulghum "Are there any questions?" An offer that comes at the end of college lectures and long meetings.

Like, "Can we leave now?" and "What the hell was this meeting for?" and "Where can I get a drink?"

Medication Prices Soaring—but Maybe Not for Long

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 13 hours ago
In very real terms, the price party may well be over. As pointed out, the pricing game is about tapping tax dollars for as much as can be billed. We may have to suffer a while longer but as this writer points out the best sellers are all coming off patent and prices have been already hugely rolled back. The drug company approach actually makes little sense except as a tax grab. It is certainly not in terms of marketing to a real consumer. Throw all that out and the whole game changes. My point today is that politicians are reacting because they cannot rationalize it all eithe... more »

Scientists Discover That Fasting Triggers Stem Cell Regeneration & Fights Cancer

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 13 hours ago
I personally fast twenty hours at separate intervals during the week. What this does is it allows the small intestine to empty fully while I am sleeping and become dormant. That allows me to not break my fast for the next half day. I can actually go well beyond this but energy will then be noticeably depleted. Yet because the small intestine remains dormant, hunger itself is not obvious. Some energy can be provided with honeyed teas which never get past the stomach. Yes, we all need to engineer fasts into our life routines. Mine certainly works well enough and stresses no... more »

Quantum field theory obeys all postulates of quantum mechanics

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 20 hours ago
*In particular, QFT can't contradict the superposition principle* A beginner who tries to learn quantum field theory, a user named Darkblue, asked a question on the Physics Stack Exchange, Is a single photon always circularly polarized? Darkblue has promoted – and is still promoting – the thesis that only circular polarizations and not linear polarizations may exist for an individual photon. To strengthen his point, he also refers to a (zero-citation) preprint by two crackpots that proposed to experimentally "test" a similar nonsensical claim.

Election results: first thoughts

Boris at The Galloping Beaver - 20 hours ago
1. Ding dong the witch is gone. 2. The immediate legacy of Harper, sworn enemy of all things Liberal (esp. Trudeaus), is to facilitate a majority Liberal government led by the Son of the Father. Ouch. That's Shakespearian political drama Canadian-style if there ever was. 3. The same problem that allowed Harper his 2011 majority also allowed Trudeau's win. FPTP permitted both parties to win

Doctor Who - the new series - a quickie

My views of the latest series of Doctor Who are very mixed. In short I loved the first episode (The Magician's Apprentice), enjoyed the second (The Witch's Familiar) mostly for the sense of connectedness with the past that it engendered, was interested by the third (Under The Lake), tired of the fourth (Before The Flood) and was bored and irritated by the fifth (The Girl Who Died). I will put up reviews and thoughts at some future date, work must take priority over blogging at the moment, but in the meantime one squee moment on The Girl Who Died was The Doctor saying that he was "re... more »

Canada Must Rebuild

Well. It looks like the horrid blue beast is defeated. I would have preferred a Liberal minority, but who knows? We're in for tough economic times and perhaps it's better to let the Liberals face it with a majority and no excuses. I'm a little relieved that I don't have to worry about the Liberals and the NDP disgracing themselves with disconnected horse-trading. By that I mean that with a Liberal minority, Trudeau might have rejected any sort of power-sharing deal with the NDP, governed from the right, and made Mulcair and the NDP decide if they were going to acquiesce or join w... more »

Over a year before before the 9/11 attacks Donald Trump wrote about a potential terror attack at the World Trade Center that he said would be far worse than the bombings that had preceded it years before. In his 2000 book, The America We Deserve, Trump stated that an attack on a major U.S. city was not just a probability, but an inevitability.
