jefferson beauregard sessions iii sez aspirin over opioids for pain relief

TAMPA — U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has drawn jeers for suggesting that people in pain should consider over-the-counter Bufferin instead of opioids.

On Wednesday, Sessions was in Tampa, touting the Trump administration’s efforts to combat drug abuse and trafficking.

This time, he broadened his suggestion to aspirin.

"I am operating on the assumption that this country prescribes too many opioids," Sessions said. "People need to take some aspirin sometimes."

Poo From Monkeys In Florida Carries Herpes Strain That Can Kill Humans

Wildlife officials have called for the removal of the free-roaming rhesus macaque monkeys from Florida after a research found that almost 30 percent of them in the state might be excreting a strain of herpes — herpes B virus or macacine herpesvirus 1 (McHV-1) — that could be life-threatening for humans.

Scientists found that a large number of the rhesus macaques in Silver Springs State Park were not just carrying the virus — which is common in the species — but had the virus in their saliva and other bodily fluids.

The forebears of the macaques, which are native to Asia, were brought to Florida in the 1930s — at a time when the Tarzan craze was prevalent in the state — in a bid to boost tourism.

About 175 monkeys roam freely across the park in Ocala, however, they have also spread to other parts of the state including Sarasota, and Tallahassee city.

Vermonts Only Nuclear Button Measurer Finally Gets the Call

RYEGATE – Although many Americans have expressed concern over the president’s latest controversial tweet, one Vermont business is breathing a sigh of relief as they cater to their first official customer. Gabe Michaels, who started “Lazy Gabe’s Nuclear Button Measurements” in Ryegate over six years ago tells reporters that he is thrilled to be vindicated after all this time.

“They told me it was a stupid idea,” Michaels said early Wednesday morning. “My wife in particular said I was just being lazy, which is why I named the company ‘Lazy Gabe’s.’ But I told her, honey, we only need one customer, and then it’s all worth it. And now we actually have two customers.”

Michaels officially registered the business back in 2011, and offers only one service, the measurement of big red nuclear buttons. According to the company’s website the fee for a button measurement is twenty-five million dollars, and Michaels says he was never worried about the price.

“Heck no, the government’s always paying way too much for stuff. I think the army pays like a million bucks a toilet seat or some such, and all I needed was to measure one button, and then I could retire. I’ve been right here on this couch, waiting for that call, and last night I finally got it. The president himself called me up, and I’m heading down to D.C. this afternoon to measure his button for him. And actually we’ve got two clients now. Some nice Asian lady named Kim something-or-other called me up and asked me to come measure a button in one of them Koreas. Course I’ll be at the White House, so I hired my cousin to do that one. Paying him twelve bucks an hour, minus the cost of the measuring tape.”

FL 2017: Emotional support squirrels, a lawyers flaming pants and other weird news

How weird was the news out of Florida this year? So weird that the popular @_FloridaMan Twitter account apparently gave up trying to keep up with it all in mid-October. He hasn’t tweeted anything to his 387,000 followers since two weeks before Halloween.

But don’t worry. Florida’s largest newspaper has not slacked off on tracking all the wacky and wild news this year. As expected, 2017 produced a bumper crop of the bizarre.


How Did Bob Corker Go from Dead Broke to $69M Net Worth During 11 Years in U.S. Senate?

“How do you increase your net worth by 69 million dollars while you’re working full-time as a Senator?” That’s the question Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi asked about Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) on Friday.

Neither Taibbi nor Rolling Stone are fans of Corker (or of President Trump, Republicans, or conservatism in general). And Rolling Stone has had problems of its own, recently, as has Taibbi.

Nonetheless, Taibbi puts a fine point on what many political watchers across the Volunteer State have been asking for years.

Federal campaign contributions and lobbying data tracker Open Secrets has perhaps the most jaw-dropping illustration of Corker’s rise to wealth.
