Professionals?

Imagine being protested against simply by association. That’s what First Lady Melania Trump went through on Wednesday morning. Because she’s married to the worst man to ever walk the planet, Melania will never get a fair shake. From Mass Live:

First Lady Melania Trump’s visit to Boston Medical Center on Wednesday sparked a sharp rebuke of President Donald Trump’s administration as more than 100 sign-toting staff members marched out of the building to argue the president’s policies on immigration and health care stood in stark contrast to the hospital’s core values of empathy and diversity.

Many doctors, nurses and students said they were not directly protesting Mrs. Trump, and some welcomed the attention to the hospital’s infant and opioid programs. But they were concerned the visit, part of the First Lady’s “Be Best” campaign focused drug abuse and cyberbullying, sent the wrong message to the hospital’s patients, many of whom are low-income and immigrants.

Midwife Cecilia Girard noted, “We have a commitment to our patients, to the migrant population. For me, ‘be best’ is to love our patients and take care of them and respect them. We feel this administration is very disrespectful of our population, putting children and women in cages, they are divisive. I don’t want my patients to think I support the policies of President Trump.

President Trump compared wife Melania to former First Lady Jackie Kennedy. He also gave her a new nickname that lefties don’t care for, too much.

American Music Icon Dead at 72; Was Set to Tour This Summer

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Mask Mandates Coming Back to Capitol Hill After CDC Switcheroo

This isn’t likely to go over well with some lawmakers.

Published

on

With the “delta” variant now raging in some parts of the country, and breakthrough infections of vaccinated individuals continuing to be reported, the CDC has made a stark decision, stating that even vaccinated folks should be wearing a mask when they are indoors or in parts of the country with high COVID transmission rates. This has now prompted the House of Representatives to bring back a previously criticized policy themselves. Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan said late Tuesday that the House of Representatives is reinstating its mask mandate – and therefore the threat of fines to members who don’t comply – following updated guidance from the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the delta variant of the coronavirus. The White House also appears to be going back to mandated masks. A White House press representative was seen Tuesday swapping a sign saying people are required to wear masks if unvaccinated with another saying masks are required regardless of vaccination status. Monahan didn’t leave much room for interpretation. “For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan said in a letter sent to congressional staffers. The move will almost certainly see pushback from the far right side of the aisle, where the mandating of masks has been a very unpopular policy, and a point of contention in almost every arena in which it has been implemented.
