Oh my fark. Azar's opinion isn't even worth printing so I could wipe my ass with it, because my bootyhole deserves better.

"Bootstraps were a typical feature of boots that you could pull on in the act of putting your boots on, but of course bootstraps wouldn't actually help you pull yourself over anything," Zimmer told HuffPost. "If you pulled on them, it would be physically impossible to get yourself over a fence. The original imagery was something very ludicrous, as opposed to what we mean by it today of being a self-made man."

The HHS Secretary can go bootstrap his way to intelligence.

I find it ironic that if I decide that someone's death will economically benefit me and act on that, I get charged with murder.   But if you're a high-ranking member of the administration, then you're just being a noble public servant.

Does he actually not realize the phrase mocks people who claim to be self-made?

Jokes on him, I've already filled one prescription and got another from a different doctor so I'll have plenty of bootstrappy before the hoarding begins.

I had two young men in their early twenties tell me earlier this week, that with their financial and job outlooks, they'd rather bed dead than doing this only available low paying labour job. Smart guys too. I'm over this planet.

'We have to reopen for our health' makes sense when you consider that the Republicans have specific ideas about who 'we' are and thus who they mean by 'our' health.
