Doctor: My Sister Is Laying Eggs. Don’t Worry I’ve Got A Patient In The Next Room Thinks He Is A Pig And A Hot Plate In The Desk

Most of the time the best way to deal with the left is to let them talk. You give them a little time and you get lots of crazy, I mean lots of crazy. When the lefty is a “psychiatrist” it gets even better.

On his radio show Monday, Dr. Drew Pinsky spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee, a Yale psychiatrist warning that President Trump’s “proneness” to violence makes him a danger to the human species.

Dr. Lee said she believes a mental health test should be applied to candidates for the office of President.

In response, Dr. Pinsky offered short psychological profiles of former Presidents like Teddy Roosevelt, well known for violent rhetoric and temperamental bluster, and Abraham Lincoln, who is believed to have suffered from clinical depression.

Based on the psychological sketches provided, Dr. Lee said these former Presidents, both of whom are included on Mt. Rushmore as among the nation’s greatest, would be “concerning” to her.

Dr. Lee has made headlines in recent months by saying the President’s mental health is “a public health emergency” that could result in “the extinction of the human species” and went on to claim “this is not hyperbole. This is the reality.

Why not ? I mean with so much on the line why should voters get to pick the president ?  Especially when qualified physicians don’t think much of the candidates. You do want qualified of course

The Yale University psychology professor who has repeatedly diagnosed President Trump with a “mental impairment” appears to lack a valid license in the State of Connecticut.
State records indicate that Bandy Lee’s “physician/surgeon” license expired in 2015, and her application for reinstatement has been “pending” ever since.

Seems the doctor doesn’t quite make the cut. She does do very well as a diagnostic tool. How people react to her provides a nearly instantaneous read on their understanding  of our system of government and just how little they care for the concept of individual rights.


The French Get It Right

Of course with our recent record the rest of the world may well be preparing educational aid packages to explain where babies come from to us.

France’s most revered actress Catherine Deneuve hit out Tuesday at a new “puritanism” sparked by sexual harassment scandals, declaring that men should be “free to hit on” women.

She was one of around 100 French women writers, performers and academics who wrote an open letter deploring the wave of “denunciations” that has followed claims that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein raped and sexually assaulted women over decades.

They claimed that the “witch-hunt” that has followed threatens sexual freedom.

“Rape is a crime, but trying to seduce someone, even persistently or cack-handedly, is not — nor is men being gentlemanly a macho attack,” said the letter published in the daily Le Monde.

“Men have been punished summarily, forced out of their jobs when all they did was touch someone’s knee or try to steal a kiss,” said the letter, which was also signed by Catherine Millet, author of the hugely explicit 2002 bestseller “The Sexual Life of Catherine M.

I still remember trying to explain to European friends that the country hadn’t gone completely nuts with the Bill Clinton impeachment, going to be a real trick with this one.


Is There Anything The Tax Bill Can’t Do ? ?

Now it’s lowering people’s electricity prices. I sure didn’t see this one coming and the Democrats told me there would be doom.

On the heels of companies dishing bonuses of up to $3,000 to over one million workers due to the anticipated benefit of President Trump’s tax reform victory, several major utilities have announced plans to cut rates in a consumer payback related to the lower taxes.

Energy suppliers like Washington’s Pepco, Baltimore Gas and Light, Pacific Power, Rocky Mountain Power and Commonwealth Edison said they plan to give hundreds of thousands of customers a rate cut due to the tax reform.

The taxpayer advocate group Americans for Tax Reform is pulling together the list of utilities expected to apply for a rate cut as it has for more than 100 major firms planning to pay out bonuses, higher wages and increased benefits due to the expected windfall they plan to receive when corporate taxes are cut.

In one announcement typical of those from the utilities sharing their tax benefits, Pacific Power said, “The benefit of this tax cut should be passed on to our customers – and we will work with our regulators and stakeholders on the best way to do that.”

At this rate I expect it’s going to get rid of bad breath, awkward pauses in conversation, and solve the problem of guests overstaying their welcomes.
