I just now revisited the Web page for scheduling a phone appointment.
It says "Mountain Time", not "Mountain Standard Time".  Selecting an
icon adjacent to that displays a tooltip that explains the indicated
time zone.  The tooltip says: "The time zone is based on your computer
system's clock."  You can view all that at

I then launched Microsoft's Data and Time window.  It says that my time
zone is "(UTC-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada)".  You can view that at

President Trump demands loyalty to himself from Republican members
of Congress.  I always thought that members of Congress -- House

United States.  In any case, they all swore an oath of office
to be loyal to the Constitution.
