Confused Asteroid Sprouts Tails… Six of Them!

Record High Warming Gases in Atmosphere: Earth Losing Race Against Time — All those “facts” and “data” are just liberal lies. Any false witness borne by FOX News or your Republican party has far more truthiness than anything in reality which conflicts with the conservative narrative.

Detroit woman shot after apparently approaching home for helpPolice are investigating whether a 19-year-old Detroit woman who was shot and killed on the front porch of a home was simply looking for help after a car crash. Yep. Definitely all safer with guns. And thanks to NRA-sponsored “stand your ground” laws, in many states the cold-blooded killing of a random stranger is consequence-free! Your Republican party: enabling the murder of 30,000 other people every year so you can keep your guns.

Rand Paul's (staffers') plagiarism — Remember, kids, we vote Republican because as any conservative can tell you, liberals and Democrats have no ethics. As long as you understand that, problems like this don’t really matter.

I will be arriving at the convention in the mid- to late afternoon, due to medical and legal appointments today. I'm booked for dinner tonight, but will otherwise be around tomorrow and Sunday to the degree my physical energy and GI issues permit. Sunday afternoon, I'll be joining many other writers at the Powell's Authorfest over at the Cedar Hills store.

See some, all or none of you there.
