The youngest of my three.
She's excited, and I'm excited for her.
Yet it's still so bittersweet.
Where did the time go?
I've just recently heard about this faction. I read up on them a bit more tonight.
It seems to include a lot of Men's Rights Activists who ignore, and dismiss sexism and misogyny.
It also seems to include a lot of young, white men, who dismiss systemic racism. They are the ones who loudly proclaim that "all lives matter" or make claims of "reverse racism".
This is also the group who complain about "political correctness". They are the ones who wonder why they can't use the "n word" or call women w*ores, or c***s, or worse.
Basically, it's a group of bitter, angry, assh*les, who have nothing better to do than troll people.
Here's the deal.
One of the persons running for President of the United States is an accomplished, dedicated, brilliant, funny, experienced, respected, and caring candidate.
The other person is an assclown.
Stop ignoring the differences.
Millions of Americans with severe allergies rely on their EpiPens. When an allergic reaction leads to anaphylactic shock, a shot of epinephrine can literally be the difference between life and death," Clinton said in an emailed statement. "But now, just as parents are about to send kids with severe food and insect allergies back to school, the EpiPen's manufacturer is hiking its price to an all-time high."
"Since there is no apparent justification in this case, I am calling on Mylan to immediately reduce the price of EpiPens," she added.
Although stories about reproductive health and politicization of science have made headlines recently, stories of how these problems are solved are less often told. On August 31, 2005 I resigned my position as assistant commissioner for womens health at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) because the agency was not allowed to make its decisions based on the science or in the best interests of the publics health. While my resignation was widely covered by the media, it would have been a hollow gesture were there not leaders in Congress who stepped in and demanded more accountability from the FDA.
have been working to improve health care for women and families in the United States for nearly 20 years. In 2000, I became the director of womens health for the FDA. I was rather quietly doing my job when the debate began in 2003 over whether or not emergency contraception should be provided over the counter (OTC). As a scientist, I knew the facts showed that this medication, which can be used after a rape or other emergency situations, prevents an unwanted pregnancy. It does not cause an abortion, but can help prevent the need for one. But it only works if used within 72 hours, and sooner is even better. Since it is completely safe, and many women find it impossible to get a doctors appointment within two to three days, making emergency contraception available to women without a prescription was simply the right thing to do. As an FDA employee, I knew it should have been a routine approval within the agency.

there's a party happening in the lounge.
be there, or be square
Like Clinton, Trump has released minimal of information, most notably in the form of a December 2015 letter of a few paragraphs from his personal physician, a gastroenterologist, that described his blood pressure and lab results as "astonishingly excellent" while suggesting a President Trump would be the "healthiest individual ever elected."
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent, found much of that language surprising and, in some cases, almost comically lacking in objective data.
"I don't even know what to make of this letter," he told CNN's Ashleigh Banfield on Tuesday. "Whether you are a doctor or not, that degree of hyperbole and these words being used is very unusual. People don't write like that. ... 'Strength and stamina are extraordinary' -- what does that mean, exactly?"
Neither the Trump campaign nor Dr. Harold Bornstein, his physician, responded to requests for comment.
It's about damn time that someone in the media brought up that ridiculous doctor note that tiny hands forged. Thank you Dr. Sanjay.
Hillary is on the way.
Tuesday night, top Clinton aide Jake Sullivan will appear at a field office opening in Salt Lake City, according to the campaign.
