Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has revealed he has Asperger's syndrome while appearing on the US comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live (SNL). The 49-year-old told viewers he was "the first person with Asperger's" to host the long-running programme - to loud cheers from the audience. People with Asperger's interpret the environment around them differently to other people. It is thought to be the first time Mr Musk has spoken about his condition. The tech boss was guest hosting the sketch show - a coveted role that has been filled by an array of celebrities since SNL's inception in the 1970s. These include Adele, Chris Rock, Ringo Starr, and Will Ferrell.

Elon Musk has been a fan of the cryptocurrency, Dogecoin. As such, I considered buying some in February, when it was priced at 3.2 cents. As I write this it's priced at 57.9 cents. Yes, I should have listened to Elon Musk.

My asperger's patch comes in every spring. I love the fact that it is a perennial, and I cut the spears and eat them raw, sometimes sauted with garlic and orange juice, and sometimes roasted.

#3, my wife, who has taught Special Education all her life, is betting you wish you could take back your little Asperger's "joke." I'm betting you're proud of it. Which one of us is right?

OK, whatever...we just called them super nerds. One who I went to HS with killed one of my best friends doing a ill advised night passing maneuver on a rural 2 lane road in dense fog when we were in different colleges. My friend had recently married, and both died in the head on crash, and I never even met her. Of course, the super nerd survived and his wealthy mother got the negligent homicide charge erased on her son.

That interesting bit of news aside, I thought Elon held his own quite well against the current cast of no-talents, particularly for a guy of his stature and in his position.

Elon also has a growth known as that woman in the Aquaman movie and of late Johnny Depps abusive girlfriend. Rumor has it that the Aqua girl has been Musk’s extramarital gal pal and he is exerting Twitter force against Johnny Depp’s lawyer as well as any on Youtube who are reporting news on the Aqua girl’s deviance. I used to think Musk would be the way forward cor Space but since he has the same weakness as all men Im a little worried we are all going to pay the price for his subservience to a raging psychotic narcissist. As I asked in other posts, what is going on that we suddenly have a bunch of DoubleYou Aich Oh Are Ees stomping their way through our culture and government??

Earlier today came this story from Politico about a huge spike in violence during Monday between Israeli Defense Forces and Palestinian terrorists operating out of the Gaza Strip, requiring the use of the “Iron Dome” by Israel to intercept rockets fired out of Gaza. Weeks of tensions between Israelis and Palestinians over access to holy sites and the potential eviction of several Palestinian families from east Jerusalem exploded Monday, leaving more than 300 Palestinians hurt, according to media reports. That’s on top of other Palestinians and Israeli security officials hurt in earlier recent clashes. We covered it here, as well. Here are some videos that are being posted on Twitter:

President Joe Biden announced in a speech on Monday that Americans currently receiving unemployment benefits must either take a job that is "suitable" or lose their benefits, encouraging states to reinstate a pre-pandemic policy of requiring people to search for work. "We're going to make it clear that anyone collecting unemployment who is offered a suitable job must take the job or lose their unemployment benefits," Biden said at the White House. According to a White House fact sheet released after the speech, the Department of Labor will "reaffirm longstanding UI [unemployment insurance] requirements" to ensure that states, workers, and employers understand the rules

Yes, my headline is pretty blunt but no more so than this NY Times piece itself. Last week CNN published a story about the progressive push to get Justice Breyer to retire. There’s was one paragraph in that story which I found particularly striking. It noted that the Senate could fall into Republican’s hands “at any moment” because “two members of the Democratic majority are near or just over 80 years old.” In other words, Democrats are one stopped heartbeat away from losing the chance to replace Breyer with a young progressive.

Somehow, the “ok” symbol that has been used for decades by the western world became a symbol of “white power” overnight based on loose claims by hard-leftists trying to find new and exciting things to get angry about. Now, if anyone does it, no matter how innocent the intent, they must be declared the next Hitler and thrown onto the nearest stake to be burned at it. Tesla CEO Elon Musk made the “ok symbol” during a skit on Saturday Night Live. Is Musk a white supremacist?

U.S. regulators on Monday authorized Pfizer and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine for use in children as young as 12, widening the country's inoculation program as vaccination rates have slowed significantly. The vaccine has been available under an emergency use authorization (EUA) to people as young as 16 in the United States. The vaccine makers said they had started the process for full approval for those ages last week. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it was amending the EUA to include the millions of children aged 12 to 15.

The Biden administration is reversing a rule initiated by former President Donald Trump that defined “sex” as biological, in an effort to prevent “discrimination” against transgender people in health care practices, the Department of Health and Human Services announced on Monday. The notice of enforcement, while not a binding federal rule, signals that the federal government will begin interpreting Section 1557 — the non-discrimination provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — to include a ban on discrimination based on sexual identity, rather than simply banning discrimination based on biological sex, as the Trump administration had. The change will likely require that states, which set their own Medicaid

A Texas rancher living north of Eagle Pass discovered five unaccompanied migrant children abandoned by smugglers on their farmland Saturday night. The five small girls, ranging in ages from one to six years old, were led across the Rio Grande River and abandoned the evening before. The human smugglers left them with no food, water, or any adults to care for them throughout the night. The rancher’s wife shot a video when they found the children on Mothers Day Sunday morning. The frustrated woman expressed their displeasure for the dangers the children faced throughout the night and the seriousness of their situation. Temperatures reached 103 degrees on Sunday

The messaging surrounding the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines has been an absolute dumpster fire. We still have Biden administration officials refusing to tell people they can return to normal after getting vaccinated. Then there was the extremely damaging pause on the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, a ridiculous, anti-science move based on blood clots forming in about one out of every million people injected. We still haven’t recovered from that, and it’s clear that the move hurt public perception. Despite that, the media and Democrats have latched onto one group to blame for the lag in vaccine distribution. You see, it’s gotta be those stupid, uneducated Trump voters who are hesitant.

Let’s play that fun Beltway game that’s sweeping the nation — er, or should be. It’s called Guess The Leaker, and Politico’s big lead on Xavier Becerra’s relationship with the White House is a perfect game board. Adam Cancryn reports from two anonymous sources that strains have appeared over Becerra’s sudden conservative turn on immigration. Is this a warning shot from the West Wing, or an attempt to burnish Becerra from inside DHS? Xavier Becerra spent decades urging congressional leaders to support liberalized legal immigration. But he’s sounding a different note as Health secretary, responsible for caring for upwards of 21,000 migrant children.

Joe Biden’s average approval rating is 54 percent. That’s not bad, though it lags behind the 100-day numbers of every post-World War II president except Donald Trump. But our friend Michael Barone looks behind that number and sees worrying signs for Democrats. For one thing, Biden’s 41.6 percent disapproval number is about equal to Trump’s. And Biden’s real numbers may be worse than what the poll average shows because, as The Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter suggests, polls seem to be under-sampling Republican voters.

NEW YORK — The cyberextortion attempt that has forced the shutdown of a vital U.S. pipeline was carried out by a criminal gang known as DarkSide that cultivates a Robin Hood image of stealing from corporations and giving a cut to charity, two people close to the investigation said Sunday. The shutdown, meanwhile, stretched into its third day, with the Biden administration loosening regulations for the transport of petroleum products on highways as part of an “all-hands-on-deck” effort to avoid disruptions in the fuel supply. Experts said that gasoline prices are unlikely to be affected if the pipeline is back to normal in the next few days but
