There's A New Varietal Of W(h)ine From Team Hill

I'm really not savvy enough to figure out how to do a screen capture on this mo-chine. However, there's a theme running around the interwebz today from the Hill People that, to paraphrase, "If it weren't for those damn Independents, we would have killed in Michigan!". So, the Big Tent folks are now scurrying to advocate closed primaries in every state from here on out.

Constructive Criticism for Hillary

Markos has stolen a page from Ronald Reagan and promulgated an 11th Commandment for Democrats. Reagan's 11th Commandment was, "thou shalt not speak ill of any other Republican." In the case of Markos it's "thou shalt not criticize Hillary Clinton." He did leave a little wiggle room, however -- constructive criticism is allowed. Even though this isn't the Daily Hillary I take Markos's admonition against gratuitous anti-Hillaryism

From The Guardian: "Bernie Sanders beats Hillary Clinton in stunning Michigan primary upset"

Bernie Wins Michigan in Big Upset



From The Guardian:

Vermont senator had trailed in polls by more than 20 points but opposition to free trade and growing African American support won votes in rust-belt state

Bernie Sanders pulled off his biggest win of the Democratic presidential race on Tuesday, defeating Hillary Clinton in the Michigan primary on a night which also confirmed strong anti-establishment support for Donald Trump in the battle for the Republican nomination.

In an industrial state hit hard by the decline of manufacturing, the Vermont senator’s consistent opposition to free trade deals appears to have been a decisive factor, but he also showed signs of weakening Clinton’s dominance among African American voters.


Pharmacological management of transgender patients

Meghan Ross, Senior Associate Editor of Pharmacy Times, has written a call for Pharmacists to educate themselves on the "unique needs" of transgender patients: 5 Ways Pharmacists Can Help Transgender Patients

Transgender patients have unique health needs, but few health care professionals have received adequate training on how to best care for these patients.


Bryan Bishop, PharmD, BCPS, clinical assistant professor at the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, recently wrote about pharmacotherapy considerations in the management of transgender patients in Pharmacotherapy.

Not being a peruser of that no-doubt fine journal, I'm glad Ms. Ross is.

Hellraisers Journal: Eugene Debs for the Appeal to Reason on the Crime Against Patrick Quinlan

While there is a lower class, I am in it,
while there is a criminal element, I am of it,
and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.

From the Appeal to Reason: Comrade Debs on the Judicial Crime Against Pat Quinlan

The incarceration of Pat Quinlan, one of the leaders of the Paterson Silk Strike of 1913, continues and is declared a judicial crime in no uncertain terms by Eugene Debs in the latest edition of the Appeal:

Go Michigan!

Whomever you support in the primary, it’s difficult to deny that there is a correlation between turnout and results thus far. Where turnout has been better than 2008, Sanders wins. Where turnout has dropped less than 20%, Sanders usually wins. When turnout has dropped more than 20% Clinton always wins. This table shows the relationship between turnout and results thus far:

I'm Here, I'm the Queen, and I Call It

So how lucky can you little bloggers be that I have arrived at your little blog?

And how can I proclaim myself Queen?

I call it.

I am bringing back the age-old most primal power play in the book.

I encountered it as a child and frankly haven't found anything more ubiquitous in our grand culture.

I shall give an example.

I was probably around 7 or so, and my brother was around 13. We were playing Monopoly and I was winning.
