Teh Squeaky Wheel
Off to Mama and PapaK’s in a bit for a fun-filled day of garage-cleaning frivolity; whee!
And on the way home, I suppose I ought to stop and vote in the GOP U.S. Senate runoff but really and truly don’t give a shit any more. Given what a criminal enterprise our government clearly is, it’s pretty much equivalent to expressing an opinion over whether Carmine the Kneecapper or Ice Pick Salvatore should be the one coming by every week to collect the protection money.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa! Enjoy your day of garage cleaning. Just channel your inner Jonathan Winters as you pick up each item -- I’m sure they’ll kick you out in no time!
CleaningK, SiL and I did a pretty good job on the ClanK Ancestral Compound’s auto terminus.
Emptied everything out save for the gun safe and a work bench BetterHalfK had previously done yeoman’s work on, swept, pressure washed, created a sizable junk pile, carried lots of stuff to a nearby storage shed and put the balance back into a now very clean and capacious garage.
We’re pooped…but Mama and PapaK (who was our able superintendent) were pleased with the results.
Coming up soon… the attic!!1!

Heh. Thanks, man.
Or, for a blues riff:
Makes sense to me:
“We reach this conclusion, frankly, with reluctance. At least until states that wish to can set up Exchanges, our ruling will likely have significant consequences both for the millions of individuals receiving tax credits through federal Exchanges and for health insurance markets more broadly. But, high as those stakes are, the principle of legislative supremacy that guides us is higher still. Within constitutional limits, Congress is supreme in matters of policy, and the consequence of that supremacy is that our duty when interpreting a statute is to ascertain the meaning of the words of the statute duly enacted through the formal legislative process. This limited role serves democratic interests by ensuring that policy is made by elected, politically accountable representatives, not by appointed, life-tenured judges.”
