Senator Rick Scott is calling on Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo to testify before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, according to a Thursday report.'There is more that the Department of Transportation can and should be doing to help address ongoing supply chain issues related to the pandemic,' Senator Cynthia Lummis told the Washington Examiner.'We're well over a year into this, and I'm concerned that the Biden administration seems more focused on pushing Congress to massively expand the federal bureaucracy rather than using their existing authorities to help American businesses and consumers get back to normal,'

Better off without Butt-gig making things even worse. Government mixing in always worsens the problems. Keep Alfred E. Neuman out of the office.

The Biden Administration does not think there IS a problem. It does not affect them. Us, they do not care about.

I’m guessing to Buttgag getting the job, the title, pay and perks that go along with it were, or are, and end unto itself. I don’t think he was prepared to actually do, or perform the functions of this position.

The butt boys are simply gaming the system and flaunting that they've overcome. God is dead, and homosexuality has won. They took a picture of themselves in the hospital pretending one of them just delivered a baby; then two men take paternity leave to further shake their fists in the face of God. Lying to themselves more than anyone else.

Buttigieg knows as much about transportation as Hunter Biden knows about Ukrainian energy, Chinese investments, and painting. His current position is nothing more than a "thank you" from the powers-that-be for agreeing, along with Warren and Klobuchar, to quit the primary race so as to stop siphoning votes away from Biden and prevent Sanders from winning the nomination.

The problem I see with East Coast and Gulf ports---besides the extra time and fuel---is that china owns a chokehold on the Panama Canal. Many years ago I read of an idea to create a new canal through, IIRC, Nicaragua, using controlled atomic blasts. We could sure use that now.

Joe Biden commemorated police officers who had lost their lives in the line of duty in 2019 and 2020 in a speech at the Capitol building on Saturday. “There’s too much pain. There’s too much loss. There’s too much at stake for your safety and the safety of those you serve,” Biden said at the National Peace Officers’ annual memorial service.There’s also too much interference by politicians for the police to do an effective job. And there’s too little support by Democratic politicians of the police forces that keep their cities from blowing up.There’s a clear disconnect between what Biden was saying

At least, that’s true as long as you are a Democrat, and Kamala Harris illustrated that perfectly yesterday with the release of a law-breaking video. In it, she clearly endorses Terry McAuliffe to be Virginia’s next governor, which is technically allowed for the vice president because she’s exempt from the Hatch Act. Yet, it’s where the video is going to be played that should lead to legal consequences.Of course, the keyword there is “should” because we all know nothing is going to happen here.

After all, Biden spent most of the pandemic-laced campaign in his Delaware basement and his appearances were marked by sparse crowds and signs he had lost more than a step. Yet he flipped five states Hillary Clinton lost in 2016, including Georgia and Arizona, and racked up 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump’s 232.

(snip)According to Dr. Marc Siegel, professor of medicine at NYU Langone Health and a Fox News medical contributor, "Urinary infections are more common in men at older ages, sometimes involving prostate, sometimes not. They can spread rapidly because of a lot of blood flow to the bladder and kidneys and enter the blood stream causing urosepsis."
