So far, 2016 has not been kind to Your Humble Scribe. January was the Retinal Vein Occlusion; February debuted My First Kidney Stone.
Yay. Let us not ever do that again.
We have, however, learned that I am still a lightweight when it comes to narcotics. 0.5 mg of dihydromorphinone via IV puts me right to sleep.
Hopefully we're getting all the medical stuff out of the way early in the year.
In other news, Judge Antonin Scalia has Passed On. Since Judge Scalia was 79, had a bad heart, and had spent the previous day hunting quail in West Texas ... this is not a surprise.
The surprise, though, was the political donnybrook that immediately broke out. Whoo. Looked a lot like jackals fighting over the corpse of a lion.
And while both sides did absolutely nothing to bring honour upon themselves, I have to say that the level of hypocrisy shown by the Democrats has been awe-inspiring.
And by "awe-inspiring" I mean they managed to gob-smack me on two different levels.
First: Listen, guys. You can't bawl like a kicked pup when the other team does unto you what you've already done unto them. Sauce for the goose really is sauce for the gander. Suck it up.
Second: I've never seen the Democrat philosophy regarding the Constitution so clearly displayed. When it comes to gun control, or immigration, or a Supreme Court nomination by a Republican president, the Constitution is "out-dated", and should be considered a "living document" that provides "guidelines" for government.
Yet, when it comes to this, the Constitution is a "sacred document" which should be "followed to the last jot and tittle".
It's one or the other, children. Make up your tiny little minds.
I'm off to the retina doctor. See y'all around.
