I think it's worth stating (even if it should be obvious) that there's not much you can do about your genes but you can do something about your lifestyle.

Exactly. Also worth noting, while genetics obvi play a part in lifespan, 2/3 of US adults are overweight or obese....you just can't spin that as genetics.

Glad Gillepsie won in VA.

I mean, Sessions say he didn't meet with Russians at the Mayflower (would be 3rd previously undisclosed meeting) yet there were photos of him and Kislyak from the event. Outside of that his answers were "I don't know", "I can't recall", "I don't feel it's appropriate to share private conversations I had with the President".

There's not much analysis there other than he squirmed his was through a public testimony.

On Gillepsie, I don't know much about him but he's kind of a non-Trumper from what I can tell? Is that right?

Multiple shots fired at Congressional softball practice in Alexandria. Very little info out right now.

Edit: Steve Scalise among those wounded.

If this has anything to do with the travel ban or anything else overtly political, shooter is a fucking idiot. You cannot make martyrs and hope to kill a cause.

"He said the shooter appeared to be a white male but added that "I saw him for a second or two." He said the shooter was behind the third base dugout and didn't say anything.


"The gun was a semiautomatic," Brooks said. "It continued to fire at different people. You can imagine, all the people on the field scatter."

According to Rep Brooks, Rep. Brad Wenstrup of Ohio, who is a doctor, was on scene and was helping tend to the wounded

Also seeing reports that Scalise and the two capitol officers are in stable condition. No word on who else was shot

Woke up to this. Crazy.

From what they're saying, there was someone there who is in the Presidential succession line, so he had a security detail who took the shooter down (and got shot themselves.) Who knows how much worse it could had been if that detail wasn't there and the shooter was able to keep going until police arrived...

Shooter reportedly was wearing running clothes and spoke to Rep Duncan and asked "are those Democrats or Republicans out there practicing?"

Majority Whip. Another congressman was hit as well, along with a few of their security detail- one was shot in the leg and kept battling.

But under this administration, there are more security details going WAY down the chain than in any other administration in the past.

Already tired of hearing the same thing over and over, so I changed it off CNN to local news. Local news is just mirroring Fox News coverage of it. Damnit.

"" Sen. Rand Paul praises Capitol Police: "These guys were real heroes, and without them I think everyone would have been killed." ""

Terrifying stuff.

is softball practice a normal thing for adults to be doing at 7 in the morning? has nothing to do with the shooting but that just struck me as odd

Idk about softball, but I used to have tennis practice at 7am for a few months before I leveled up to a rating that didn't have any morning options.


In the summer in Texas, it's nice to get out there before the sun really heats up the ground/air.

Just trying to promote personal responsibility!

How about the Tax Really Unhealthy MuffintoP Act. TRUMP Act. With a name like that, the Donald is guaranteed to support it.

Pushing an idea that forces "personal responsibility" and punishes the poor is pretty Republican of you tbh

I'm an independent...so I'm allowed to straddle the line ;)

Also, I take issue with your assertion that this will punish the poor. The more shitty, obesity, and cancer causing things you buy, the more you pay. Works the same for the rich and the poor. Also, I've said the money should be used for some combo of 3 things...1) paying for universal coverage or a public option 2) subsidizing healthy foods and 3) health education.

I think universal coverage is the way to go, but find it objectionable that I'd have to pay for others poor choices. Sin tax is an easy way to ensure people pay for their own bad choices...one beer, cigarette, or bon bon at a time.
