The impending gun game by executive order? I think the President will wake up this weekend...look at the numbers and grasp that half of all Democrats are lined up to oppose massive changes. So you will see only two executive orders: (1) no ammo clips to hold more than 10 bullets to be sold across America, and (2) mandatory background checks on every single sale. Problems? Well....no state law or county law folks have to enforce this, and I doubt if the Feds really have much of a manpower situation to enforce it either. Considering how many large ammo clips already exist in America....most everyone has at least two or three, and that's good enough to make it through the next four years. Yeah, the neat thing about a Presidential order is that the next guy can just openly declare all executive orders between 2008 and 2016 to be null and void, ending this quietly in 2017.
About every four weeks....Mayor Bloomberg of New York City gets himself in the news for another sweeping change. He wants to fix it so that hospitals can issue no more than a three-day supply of big-time pain-killers (Vicodin or OxyContin or Percocet). This would prevent folks from getting overdosed on pain-killers.....or at least the mayor believes that. What happens if you are still in pain? Well...another visit to the doctor. Again in pain? Another visit to the doctor. So in one month....you could rack up nine visits to some doctor. In New York....figure at least $75 a visit....to get each prescription. Man, you'd really rack up some great profits for a two-minute consultation deal like this.
Shocking news from MSNBC....Supreme Court Judge Clarence Thomas doesn't represent blacks. Well...with only one token black on MSNBC, it doesn't actually represent blacks either. And Latinos? Don't even bring that up.
The flu mess is coming up to a peak point. The odd thing....in roughly nine days is that around 600k folks will show up in DC for the Presidential swearing-in. You can figure at least 3k of them have the flu in some degree, and this forced episode will make them sicker than what they were (figure real hospital time for those guys after they get home), but they will infect at least 60k of the participants throughout the day. So the real peak....might come at the end of January. And who knows....even the President might get sick and end up missing the State-of-the-Union speech deal.
