What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo asks for help, still gets the shaft

So long and thanks for all the fish. "Humpback whales are normally pretty solitary—scientists used to call groups of 10 to 20 'large.' Now they’re congregating in groups of 20 to 200 off the coast of South Africa." (Grokked from Kelly Link)

"A culture of paranoia is consuming the Trump administration, with staffers increasingly preoccupied with perceived enemies — inside their own government… In interviews, nearly a dozen White House aides and federal agency staffers described a litany of suspicions: that rival factions in the administration are trying to embarrass them, that civil servants opposed to President Donald Trump are trying to undermine him, and even that a “deep state” of career military and intelligence officials is out to destroy them… Aides are going to great lengths to protect themselves. They’re turning off work-issued smartphones and putting them in drawers when they arrive home from work out of fear that they could be used to eavesdrop. They’re staying mum in meetings out of concern that their comments could be leaked to the press by foes." You calls may be monitored and recorded for quality control. (Grokked from Kathryn Cramer)

"The Republican plan would block $178 million in Medicaid reimbursements to Planned Parenthood in 2017." Well, if PP is named (or specifically outlined) in the bill, that's a cause for legal action (the Federal Government can neither endorse or prohibit an individual company by law - regulation and implementation however is another thing).
