- Grabbing The Left By It's Pussy

My bro is exhausted. His numbers from the bone marrow transplant look great so technically he's healthy, but he's being given a fistful of drugs for anti-rejection and immunity enhancement, and his diet is severely restricted to prevent him accidentally acquiring any bacteria through his digestion that his body might not be ready to fight off. The diet is the big thing. He's basically on baby food. Boiled and pureed food only. And since his taste buds were destroyed during the chemo-related mucositis, everything he eats tastes like paste. If he could just get enough calories I'm sure he'd feel better, but overall his travel down this long road is going well.

He hasn't been following the news so I tried to tell him how the Trump administration is going after week one, and I didn't know where to begin. Muslim immigration? Check. The Wall? Check. Regulatory Reform? Check. Gutting the EPA? Check. Obama EO revocation? Check. He came out of his corner and hit so fast and so hard, that the left quite literally doesn't know where to protest. and even on that front, though they are getting increasingly violent, the inaugural protesters are being charged under Felony Rioting, and could end up with 15 years in jail. when we get a pro-life, pro 2A SCOTUS nominee tomorrow (and it looks like we will) it will be hard to remember which campaign promises he hasn't done something about.

It's almost enough to make you think that Hillary wasn't actually elected President after all.

I'm a little disappointed that Congress hasn't moved the Concealed Carry Reciprocity to the front of the line, but then I get to thinking about it and I realize, the guy was inaugurated 10 days ago. This is 10 days worth of Trump - and that's easily worth three months of any other Washington layabout.

Show me a few sullen looking black bloc guys being hustled off to prison to be violated by the boys in cell block B, and I'll be downright giddy.

BTDT on the transplant. Six months before he'll really feel human again, and there's still a way to go after that. Patience, grasshopper...

Well wishes and a rapid recovery to your brother. No tastebuds and baby food for weeks or months has got to be rough. -Muzz
