Welcome, this is a place called earth and it is good.

An old-school pharmacy hand-delivers drugs to Congress, a little-known perk for the powerful – Stat News

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Very cool very cool. I also want to give a to that lowkey drop of Alzheimer’s second to diabetes.


Citing marijuana ‘overdoses’ in Colorado, Bevin says he will never legalize pot in Kentucky Insider Louisville

“THC content in marijuana is not like it was even a generation ago,” said Bevin. “There are people overdosing based on ingestion of products that are edibles and things. You have that state being sued by at least two of their border states. You have law enforcement people in emergency rooms being overrun by problems. You have homelessness spiking in that state. It has not been good for that state, and states like us would be wise to look at that and realize that’s a sucker’s bet.”

Bevin knows a sucker’s bet when he see’s one. He will not have people over oh-deeing on their marajuana cigarettes or their drug pills just to make sure state employees keep, like, any amount of their promised retirement.

As Joe states, there are some health concerns around the move, but it’s hard to tell whether Big B’s concern-trolling is cynacle or ignorant.

But don’t worry he’s got this pention things figured ou…

Report says Kentucky’s proposed pension ‘reforms’ could make everything worse Herald Leader

From the viewpoint of public employees, the loss of pensions means an end to financially secure retirements, Fornia wrote. Even if state workers and school teachers contribute the maximum sums allowed to their 401(k) account every pay period and enjoy an unbroken string of good fortune in their stock market investments, which seems doubtful, they are likely to run out of money if they survive into their 80s, he wrote.

… In which the KYGOP intends to solve the pension crisis by just cutting everyone loose with a🖕.


TOP TRUMP OFFICIAL JOHN KELLY ORDERED ICE TO PORTRAY IMMIGRANTS AS CRIMINALS TO JUSTIFY RAIDS The Intercept

But while dozens of undocumented immigrants were detained, the administration sought to shape the narrative that “by removing from the streets criminal aliens and other threats to the public, ICE helps improve public safety,” according to statements by the agency.

On February 10, as the raids kicked off, an ICE executive in Washington sent a directive to the agency’s chiefs of staff around the country. “Please put together a white paper covering the three most egregious cases,” for each location, the acting chief of staff of ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations wrote in the email. “If a location has only one egregious case — then include an extra egregious case from another city.”

Since this is the dude ostensibly charged with keeping the WH on the rails, I’m here to offer a friendly reminder that a successful Trump admin is exactly this shit.


It’s hard to be snarky about this extremely real and dangerous stuff, so let’s turn our sites to our large adult sons.

The Land of the Large Adult Son New Yorker

The galaxy of large adult sons contains many constellations, and sons don’t necessarily have to be adults to belong. In November, 2014, the parody Web site Clickhole posted a BuzzFeed-style quiz called “Which One of My Garbage Sons Are You?” “I’ve got some shit boys,” the intro read. “My huge beautiful wife gave me children who think and speak like the toilet. I have four garbage sons: The first son is named Royce, the second son is named Preston, the third son is named Lance and Blake (two names for just one son), and the fourth son is the dreaded Laramie. Which one of my toxic sons are you? Take this quiz to find out!” My result: “You are a real trash mountain of a son who came marching out of my huge beautiful wife on the worst day to ever happen.” I was working at Gawker Media when this quiz was posted, and it derailed all operations for about an hour.

It is said a meme is dead as soon as it is defined by Buzzfeed, but this I say: a meme will live forever when it is a meme discussed at length in the New Yorker and is our beefy boy.


In less bad news, Blade Runner 2049 is super fun and you should see it in the theater.
