The answers are easy, but getting to the why and how behind the answer requires a little bit of digging.

Ep. 2: What's in A Name?

2/3/2021
With CMT being inheritable, there are four ways that CMT can be inherited. These four ways are called the inheritance patterns. The inheritance patterns are confusing. The genetic mutations that cause CMT are confusing. There are so many types, each confusingly caused by a different confusing gene mutation. CMT is as confusing as it gets. For all the confusing variability of CMT, there's only a couple of things that don't change—there’s always an exception to the rule and CMT is inherently...

2/25/2020
Roger Stone got shafted, again, over the weekend. Bernie slaughtered everybody in Nevada. Klobuchar will not tolerate her Congressional voting record being talked about.

Impeachment is Normal and Trump is Going To Win

1/31/2020
Impeachment has become the normal thing to do, but they don't want us to know that. Impeaching a president is a hyper-partisan affair. This time, the Dems are too short-sighted to see how they've handed their nemesis his re-election on a golden platter.
