Yep, it’s my first day as a part-timer at Co. in NorVA, so I have more time to do things like write. And blog.
So he’s taking the phrase “nanny state” literally: Nanny Bloomberg is forcing hospitals to cut back on offering new mothers baby formula. Because the mayor of New York should be doing things like that. It’s the state’s job, don’t you see? And, as a man, he is such an expert on having babies.
Well, duh: The IDF will attack Iran if ordered to do so. Really? This was a controversy? Name a democracy that has had problems with its military carrying out commands. This isn’t Syria, where soldiers are being ordered to murder civilians.
