Animal’s Daily Random Notes From the News

Nothing really catches my eye in particular this early Thursday morning, so here are some random tidbits from the news – well, some random tidbits followed by one rather larger…  bit.  Enjoy.

John Stossel reminds us we not only have the right to bear arms, but also to print them.  He also exposes some of the more hysterical pronouncements of those who would try to put the toothpaste back in the tube.

President Trump:  Troll-In-Chief.  It is funny, how he does this; every time some major event is in the works, he issues a tweet, or gives a presser, makes some outrageous statement, and the Democrats and the legacy media scream “squirrel!” and run off in every direction.

Beta O’Rourke, the Irish Tortilla, steps on his crank again.

If you aren’t reading the Glibertarians morning and evening links, you should be.

Is a reckoning in store for the Democrats in Congress?  The New English Review’s Conrad Black thinks so.  I think he has a few good points.

What may well have been the first molecule has been spotted in space.  I minored in chemistry in college way back when, but never heard of a helium hydride ion (HeH+).  Go figure.

When iguanas are outlawed, only outlaws will have iguanas.  ‘Nuff said.

Scientists Restore Some Function In The Brains Of Dead Pigs. I wonder if they might be able to restore some function in the brains of Congress?  Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr was unavailable for comment.

It turns out that when you die, you might know it.  Relevant excerpt:

Top medical experts have forever been at loggerheads over what happens when humans die, with anecdotal evidence of bright lights and flashes reported by people who have ‘come back’ being the cause of much debate.

However, a new study suggests your consciousness carries on functioning after your heart stops beating and your body movements fail.

This means you are essentially ‘trapped’ inside your dead body with your brain still working, if only for a short time.

Honestly, I find that…  horrifying.  I sure hope they’re wrong.

Out on a limb.

Finally, the big bit:  The (redacted) Mueller report should be released today.  My prediction:  Democrats and some Republicans will insist on seeing the unredacted report.  If they get that, they’ll insist on seeing the original source material.  If they get that, they’ll insist on interviewing all the witnesses.  And the kabuki drama that is the Russiagate “investigation” will go on, and on, and on.

On that pessimistic note, we return you to your Thursday, already in progress.
