My wife is having a total hip joint replaced tomorrow but...

...when we saw Dr. this morning, he told her the option of rescheduling because due to the hospital being full, she would have to go home immediately after the surgery as there were no beds. She told him no, she had already waited a long time to get done and wanted to proceed.
Middle Georgia just continues to drain the gene pool with "No Maskers" because they just don't believe the risk is real.

Could the 14th Amendment stop a 2024 Trump run?

Some Democrats appear to think so.
The Hill reported Friday that at least a dozen lawmakers have been holding meetings and speaking, both publicly and privately, about whether or not it would be possible to use Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to permanently bar Trump from seeking a second term.
The clause bars someone from holding office if they:
Have "previously taken an oath" to "support the constitution," and...
"Engaged in insurrection or rebellion" against the United States
Legal scholars are split on how to implement the provision a controversial task, to say the least. There are currently three ideas floating around Capitol Hill:
1. A simple majority vote in both chambers of Congress that found Trump guilty of fomenting the insurrection would be enough to bar him from public office.
2. A "neutral" fact-finding body would have to determine whether Trump officially engaged in an "insurrection "or "rebellion" a task for either a Congressional panel or federal court.
3. Local election officials could use Section 3 on a state-by-state basis to take Trump's name off their ballots if he were to run again in 2024.
It's unclear how well any of this would work the effort would face a major hurdle at the U.S. Supreme Court, which maintains a conservative majority after Trump appointed three justices to the bench during his four years in office.

I'm sure someone on here knows the answer.

I thought the Attorney General was supposed to give a briefing TODAY of the on going investigation into the insurrection at Congress. Did I get the day wrong? I haven't seen anything about it on the news. Thanks.
