To ask the question is to answer it

Why did NBC news sit on evidence discrediting a Kavanaugh accuser for weeks?

Because the Mainstream Media is the propaganda wing of the National Socialist Democrat Worker's Party, and they take their orders from the DNC - which means never ever report on anything that might help the Trump, the GOP or us Normals who live between I-95 and I-5.

To NBC News' credit, their reporting is the entire reason we know about the discrepancies in Swetnick's accounts. It was their October 1st report—during the height of the Kavanaugh sexual misconduct debate—that first revealed that Swetnick would not or could not confirm several of the details she made in a sworn statement to Congress. 
But per the newest story, these are the details NBC News knew for a fact during the Kavanaugh debate, and chose not to report:

I wouldn't read it if you're on blood pressure medication.

Shouldn't the onus be on the people having promiscuous, unprotected sex?

Primary care doctors "not doing enough" to curb STDs, reads the headline.  Uh, nope, sorry.  Who is it deciding to stick Big Jim and the Twins in a hole that thousands of other men have used as a cum dumpster?  Who is deciding to spread their legs for some unknown jackwagon because he looked good in the bar after five drinks?  Is the doctor doing that?

"We know that doctors are not doing enough screening for STDs," said David Harvey, executive director at the National Coalition of STD Directors. The failure to screen routinely "is leading to an explosion in STD rates," he said, adding that cutbacks in funding and a lack of patient awareness about the risks make it worse.


Why don't people try this method:  Keep Your Pants On.

"Oh, but Dave, sex is natural!"  Oddly enough, so is dying from syphilis.  Just because modern society has managed to overcome syphilis in some cases does not overturn the fact that for the greater part of this world's history, rampant promiscuity has normally led to death, or various body parts falling off.  Oh, and by the way, there is now an antibiotic-resistant strain of gonorrhea out there.  So even if you get screened on a daily basis, if you rut like an alleycat in heat, you still might die of a disease who's entire existence could be prevented if people would act like decent people instead of lust-addled monkeys.

On my old motorcycle helmet, I had a sticker that read "Remember when sex was safe, and motorcycles were dangerous?"  Sex today is not safe.  It's never really been safe, but today it a thousand times worse.  Teenagers in high school are popping up with the clap, genital warts, and various other bugs that simply didn't exist in large quantities until the Sexual Revolution.  College students are even worse off.  I swear on my grave, if anything happens to my wife and I'm single again, I'm probably going to swear off sex and become a priest.  I certainly wouldn't go sticking my wang into random females the way modern society demands. 

If you want to know how to avoid catching the clap, or herpes, or any other disease, it's simple.  Don't have sex with lots of random people.  In fact, don't have sex with anyone you're not married to.  And then you won't have to worry about any STD screening.

Went to the doc today

She asked if I had ever had gout before.  I said no, with no family history either.  Did a few x-rays, but nothing came up.  Got a steroid shot and a shot of anti-inflammatories, and that made the foot feel better.  She was of the opinion that it's soft tissue damage and not gout, but if it comes back she'll do a uric acid test.

Oh, and I have plantar fasciitis.  Joy.  That could be a contributing factor.

So it's bicycle for me, at least until the foot is healthy enough to start running again.  And thanks to the new Army fitness test that's rolling out in 2020, it'll be running or nothing.  There are no alternative events so far.  So walking or biking for the test isn't really an option.

Ah well.  Onward to the next thing that crops up.

Yup





Can't argue with a word of that.

*sigh*

The Left wishes to bring about the Endarkenment.

This is probably now the top hot-button issue at Canadian universities - the move to replace ‘European-based knowledge’ as exclusionary, inadequate and subjective, and to replace it in some cases with “indigenous knowledge,” and even something called “indigenous science”… what some might say is superstition or magical beliefs… The idea that “indigenous knowledge” is not to be questioned, that it has value equal to supposedly ‘European’ science… is an incredibly worrisome and strange idea.

I might be less inclined to roll my eyes at this piece of idiocy if the "indigenous knowledge" was advanced enough to encompass such objects as...  the wheel.

I think they managed levers.  But not the wheel.

I didn't expect the legal pot up in Canada to hit them this hard this soon.

I hate getting old

Went running on Saturday.  Just a light run, nothing major.

Sunday, the left foot starts to hurt.  Specifically the joint of the big toe.  Pain, swelling, some light discoloration.

Today I can barely walk on it.

The worst part is that I don't know what I did to screw it up.  If I knew what I did I could avoid doing it in the future, or find a way to fix it.  But I have no clue.  Just pain.

Can't get in to see a doctor until Friday at the latest.  This is going to be a fun week.
