Trump appoints Climate Change Overseer

The success and popularity of Dr. Fauci has not gone unnoticed by the White House. Acting as a Pandemic Overseer, Fauci has brought scientific credibility to an administration lacking any shred of it previously. He has routinely sobered up the President's incoherent and blissfully ignorant messaging. Trump has seen modest gains with independent voters, while his base has remained surprisingly tolerant of the onslaught of math and science in the face of this crisis.

Looking to build on this momentum, the White House has appointed a Climate Change Overseer to clean up the anti-science and conspiratorial muck on that front.

Yeah about that Trump coronavirus approval rating

It appears that Great America PAC is running at least one of those polls. They are running ads on Fox News and do a little pitch about how you should vote when you call (vote APPROVE of course).


If only one person holds a set of spiritual beliefs...

...they are certifiably insane.

If a hundred people share the spiritual beliefs, they are a cult.

If two hundred people share the spiritual beliefs, they are a church.

If ten thousand people share the spiritual beliefs, they are a movement.

If a hundred thousand people share the spiritual beliefs, they are a sect.

If a million people share the spiritual beliefs, they are an organized religion.

If billions of people share the spiritual beliefs, those beliefs then become a default position.

The warning here is that there may be no correlation between the above categorization and the validity of the beliefs held. Majority fallacy applies here.

Anyone enjoy a Shamrock Shake today?

I had to fast for eight hours and risk venturing in to my doctor's office at noon for a routine blood test before heading back to work. The weather has been overcast and dreary here. I'd been looking forward to 16 ounces of escapism in the form of a McDonalds Shamrock Shake. I've not had one in decades and don't even remember what they taste like.

Sadly, their ice cream machine was broken.

Connect these two dots to win the General Election

Dot #1 - Trump fired the US Pandemic Response Team in 2018 and cut funding for the CDC (with even deeper cuts proposed)

Dot #2 - A glitch in the coronavirus test rollout slowed the U.S./CDC's response dramatically compared to other affected countries

Trump is trying to connect Dot #2 with Obama, which is absurd. All we have to do is establish strong causality between Dots 1 and 2 and it's all over. Put it on a bumper sticker and POUND POUND POUND it home.
