This is NOT a joke. This, alas, is very, very real.

A sitting U.S. Senator is going to Canada to get an hernia operation done!

The implications are horrendous. U.S. hospitals and doctors are NOT good enough. WOW.

Now remember, he is a doctor. Wow. So, he should know. WOW.

Canada? Yes, Canada?

Plus, he is not going there to get it done free or on the cheap — though it is way less expensive in Canada than here.

I really am in shock. This is not good. The last thing we need right now.

Cricket, Afghan Cricket At That, Gets Talked About On The Floor Of The U.S. Senate — Today, Thanks To Rand Paul.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE. Rand Paul used a variant of this slide, from his “Waste Report”, on the Senate Floor.

As some of you know, I am a political and news junkie. So, I have been intrigued by Senator Rand Paul’s (R-Kentucky) attempts to do a filibuster of sorts, on the floor of the U.S. Senate, to force another U.S. Government Shutdown at midnight.

It is not getting the wall-to-wall TV coverage it deserves.

I happen to catch a snippet of it on CNN around 6pm.

Rand Paul (of the busted ribs) was talking about cricket, Afghan cricket and this supposed televised cricket league.

His contention is that this is a waste in that most Afghans do not have TV. I am not sure that is true. Yes, of course, there will be many, many rurals areas without TV but there are also large urban centers.

Plus, cricket in Afghanistan is thriving and is, understandably, a source of great pride. So, in this instance Rand Paul might be doing an disservice and injustice to Afghans — in particular the cricket fans.
