Please do say a prayer for our PM, those who are so inclined. He is well-loved here ignore the screeching lefties on Twitter and will not be easily replaced.
Some pigs are more equal, etc. Number 2 son was born on the NHS and I have few complaints about the level of care from the doctors and nurses. Ah, damn. Indeed, we need him. Best to him. Because when this is over, some folks are going to have a great deal of explaining to do. And I think, this time, folks are not going to be forgetful of who was bullshitting us.
D states have more stupid people and more hypochondriacs. We are used to the idea because it has quite often been true that new diseases come from China, and because anyone who has paid any attention whatsoever knows that China cannot or will not deal with an outbreak. I keep telling people who obsess about the idea that the disease crossed over from people eating bats that in China people eat just about anything because over the course of history, they have HAD TO. Chinese governments have treated the common Chinese like livestock for thousands of years, with the consequence that in China the common people are routinely subject to the kind of horrific die-offs that happen to livestock.
Thanx, Sarah! Yeah — look at Gov. No, no, back to coat and tie it was. This is a gross thought but he MIGHT just have a half dozen really wiry chest hairs around his nipples. One of the many things I did not anticipate about this year was some male politician getting called out for nipple show-through.
That is a failing, but an understandable one with minimal blame attached: no one sufficiently accounts for Clown World. So we keep being treated to the spectacle of members of the Political Class behaving like trailer park trash. Hold my beer. The worst is that the Democrats are saying that we have to use Vote by Mail. It is coming through every place. This is the greatest thing I fear.
If it happens there will be little that can be done to stop the Democrats. With this they could have unbeatable majorities in both houses and the President Whoever that might be, it will not be Biden for long. There will also be little chance that a Trump like person could ever win again. OTOH they might become so blatant….
They are so far into Full Panic Mode about the prospect of four more years of Trump that I think blatancy is going to be the order of the day.
They might need a heavy reminder of the vote in NC-9 and advice that Ballot harvesting is a trick working both ways. It is a well known fact that Team Blue never engages in voter manipulation, fraud, or suppression, now or at any time in the past; those are only tactics of Team Red, because right thinking people will never voluntarily vote Team Red.
Which President Trump has been pushing back on hard when brought up by press. I do mean hard. Exceptions should be only deployed military, or hardship cases. Those cards were issued when you registered, in person, to vote.
Well before you can legally vote. All over 30, now. In an area where public transportation is a PIA at best. Why so long? Because the officials had everyone come see how to do it, since they did so few! And free in many cases, otherwise just a small admin fee. Oregon same way.
Had to get 12 year old state id, last minute. Very easy. Terrible, terrible financial burden. I think there may be one person with a lower opinion of Dr. Argument erupts between Fauci, Trump aide over coronavirus drug: report A heated argument broke out in the White House Situation Room over the weekend between Dr. The argument, which Axios reports took place Saturday afternoon, ensued when FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn brought up the topic of hydroxychloroquine, the malaria drug Trump believes could help fight the virus.
And if not, that someone else is given the mantle to run in I rather like Mister Navarro. You do in Canada. Mostly because OrangeManBad from what I can see. Tam finally allowed that MAYBE masks might be useful for the general public, seeing as how minimum 6 foot distancing is difficult on a subway or in an elevator.
Being able to get beyond TDS is essential, too. I can only assume this is because they think Europeans and Chinese are smarter than Canadians, and the UN being the tippety-tip-top of the bureaucratic pyramid, the WHO can do no wrong.
I also assume this is because they can blame the WHO for the fuck-up if it all comes unglued. As un-serious a group of high school cheerleaders and football stars as ever there was. It works in two hours. Thank God for Donald Trump mentioning it. The fall will probably kill ya. But then DadRed has a very, very low tolerance for bureaucrats, one earned the hard way. National media, such that it is, is full of frankly evil lately.
I stopped taking the Gazette and the Post when they were bought by conglomerate that leans heavy left. The local newspaper has been known to do a local story, occasionally. When the Kroger affiliate stopped putting their advert in the Sunday paper, we stopped getting it. This was long before ebooks, but it kind of struck me as a grand, but futile gesture. Hmmm… Number commenter, so no one will read this. As I aged, I saw it more, and it still awes me. Some of the most well-informed, educated, and even those with a ton of practical experiences, can so easily be led to certain behaviors and fears.
I must add, I found myself in that, to some degree, but also realized what was going on. People respond their their upbringing, to friends, to co-workers, to the media, to television, to Hollywood, to society, and often, they do not see the forest for the trees. Read Nate Shiransky. His books put words to much of my music. Thankfully, I had a relative, a boss, some co-workers, and a couple of friends who thought for themselves.
Appreciate what we come to understand, help where you can, and live life. Though the moniker seems new…. Your last paragraph sounds like psychedelic rock? It can be excused in the new to the blog. At least some of us. I gotta disagree, though— a lot of people do what you observed, but are thinking. They decide who to trust. I noticed that behavior first at ATH, then at some much! Not just people sharing intravenous drugs injectors, not just people enjoying weekends of intercourse with dozens of people, employing an exhaust port as an entry port?
The AIDS every one is at risk thing was so dumb. They already have that idea. Detroit lawmaker credits Trump after taking antimalarial drug to beat coronavirus A Democratic state representative from Detroit credited President Trump for touting a drug she says saved her life from the coronavrius. Whitsett said she learned on Monday she tested positive for COVID but started taking hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug, last Tuesday after she began showing symptoms.
I do thank him for that. On Monday, a doctor in Los Angeles claimed he is seeing viability in the drug after administering it to critically ill patients with the coronavirus.
Detroit has become a hot spot for the nationwide coronavirus outbreak in recent days. More than people in Michigan have died from the virus as of Monday in a state nearing 20, confirmed cases. Endorsement of Trump by a Detroit Democrat constitutes admission against interest and merits a higher probability of fact. Has anybody explained to Dr. F that, in terms of science, we cannot definitively say this world exists? The crux of the issue is not whether the drug is effective, it is whether it is in most cases harmful.
The thing you have to keep in mind when watching a politician is that many of them are the kind of self-important twits who Rand for Student Council in high school, and took it deadly seriously.
These guys know the firms of Dewey, Cheatem and Howe, plus Sueman and Scheister, are salivating over the prospect of class-action coronavirus lawsuits.
And that right there is why the lockdown will never really be lifted. Every business that tries to re-open knows they will be sued, whether by employees or customers.
This is the only reason the lockdown has actually happened in many places. And doctors and dentists I know a couple have been specifically told by their insurances that malpractice insurance will NOT cover lawsuits placed by people claiming to have contracted coronavirus at their place of business. Credentials matter little. Data matters a lot more. See, for example:.
In SOME patients, at least. And I agree entirely that the economic shutdowns are a case of destroying the village in order to save it. Depending on what they are on, they are already deficit in what is being attacked. That is partly what the opposition is touting.
CV19 made their condition worse. Also why the combination works sometimes, and sometimes not. You can also leave information at Dr. Oz is more used to getting his website hammered. Have not heard that counter argument. Good to know. Niece has Lupus. Do not know what treatment she is on.
Do not go to work. Do not go Shopping. Do not send your kids to school or daycare. School would apply if school was in session. They are also in the high risk categories so everyone is keeping the kids healthy. I think though, that I may be a bit more optimistic than you are right now. My take is that this whole thing is ripping off the veil the left has been hiding behind.
Looking forward to the day when baby sister admits that maybe she might have swung too far left. OTOH she might avoid admitting it.
Not to mention what it will do for college …. I would have loved to have waited a year. Which is what nephew was. Families with a toddler being difficult is already frustrated.
Confronting them just gives them a legit target to actually take their frustrations out on. I can relate to being among smallest in class. My birthday is late October. I started school at age 5 cutoff date before November 1. My mom goes full-on Paladin against the screamers. The poor parents have enough to deal with , per her. The poor parents have enough to deal with, per her. Looks innocent. OTOH we all did have experience by then as our youngest maternal cousin was the same way.
Pixie, tiny kitten scaring off big nasty coyote, but standing behind, Pixie is Brutus, a huge oversized grizzled scared Rin Tin Tin. Marshall was more normal, for versions of normal. It was…. We stopped going to Gunther Tooties? She told us our six year old should behave better. He was two and a half. So, in a stroke of brilliance, she left mine behind to be brought out after.
The waitress moved pretty fast to get me mine, but that was the point at which my parents decided that the small kitchen to large dining area was not worth it. Oh, dear. He stopped growing at 13, and apparently, according to him, is stunted, because he started drinking coffee at 10….. They were being ignored when people had lives, but bored and scared people at home keep turning on the news.
Of course, there is a subsidiary definition that applies to press availabilities from conservative politicians, a definition bearing a superficial resemblance to the former definition. I was flipping the fuck out a couple of weeks ago, but being the suspicious and cautious type I just shut up and kept it to myself. As to the government, they were already killing Canada as fast and hard as they possibly could.
I also think that the next time a deadly plague brews up in China, whatever government replaces this broken one we have will be a lot faster on the trigger for shutting down air traffic.
We get all sorts of contradictory reports and crazy theories. Fog of war. The hotter the conflict, the more confusing and contradictory reports you get. I wish we could import an ImpSec analyst from Barrayar to teach us how to calculate a decent reliability score on news reports and sources.
I see references to combining chloroquine with azithromycin and references to combining chloroquine with zinc. I definitely agree that nobody really knows anything. So 57 columns, and line items for each day since they started attributing death to Winnie the Flu. As I understand it, cloroquine and zinc are used against the coronavirus as prophylactic or treatment and azithromycin is used against any opportunistic bacterial infections, to prevent pneumonia. Zinc is to support the immune system, and seems to work in some people.
The chloroquine affects cell PH, among other things, which is why it worked as an anti-malarial before malaria got smarter, alas and works against the Flu Manchu.
Well, that and with the economic re-booting there may be a lot of movement to jobs in more sensible less regulatory-minded places. Love to see what the hacks in black make of that. Totally off topic. This has bothered me for a long time and I just figured out why. Regarding doctors; Our system of law has an annoying hole. My Lady got prescribed far too much steroids for far too long.
I wanted to break his knees. And had I both known the circumstances and witnessed it, I would have been somehow looking for Venus in the daytime sky or some such if asked. A large number of people 49, died of pneumonia bacteriological and viral , often due to an opportunistic infection connected to prolonged hospitalization.
At some point, the CDC decided to merge the stats into one measure: flu-associated deaths. So… the CDC has been conflating death by pneumonia by a variety of causes and comorbidities with death by influenza — since at least And it remains an illusion no matter how much they want to give up. There are few things for which folk fight so viciously as the defense of their illusions.
Is there a connection to their oxygen level? Give the very real epidemic, or pandemic, many measures make sense — social distancing, wearing mask, washing hands. The tourism industry would be locked down anyway — no travel or much, much reduced travel , airlines decimated, no hotels, no restaurants. Then — no sports, no concerts, no wedding celebrations,no markets, no conventions….
So, we do indeed hate the mass hysteria and the Government imposed lockdown. Still, given the pandemic a natural catastrophe — most of the effects of the lockdown on the economy would happen anyway, even without Government decrees. Pat Riordan from Bonbeach in south east Melbourne, Australia was driving alone in his car to Red Hill to go mountain biking, for exercise.
I was on my own. In fact, we have several rural counties up here that just went on lock-down, but the county judges and sheriffs were very, very careful to say that it does NOT apply to farmers and ranchers conducting farm and ranch operations, or delivering food and food-on-the-hoof to processors and feeders. If the models were right. Stop being a Vichy. Many Chinese expats and emigrants returned to the home country New Years.
Two weeks later they dispersed, carrying the virus with them. The clusters are all over the world, even when Chinese population is higher in the lower hit place Portugal, vs.
And Denver has a very high Chinese population as do the Springs. High enough we should be mini-NYC. And the county in Georgia with the highest deaths per capita? Not Chinese. Regarding the homeless. I could be wrong but I believe here in San Diego they put them up in hotels which were otherwise empty so they could keep them warm and monitor them. So homeless numbers might be distorted over normal flu seasons.
I definitely advocate for a voluntary approach with no government lockdown decrees. What I said is that a big disruption of the economy was bound to occur anyway. That would be the result of things normal people would do to protect themselves.
The people most at risk are NOT participants in the economy. Look at what Sweden? They never locked down. Just protected the vulnerable. There was never any reason to close the economy or disrupt it in any way. What we had was a panic fanned by the press and groups in Silicon Valley and academia with a history of dubious causes and analyses.
Since they are either directly rich or connected to rich people, perhaps they should pay for the harm they have caused. I learned a number of things while being a faculty member of a well known medical school many, many years ago. Over the years some things may have changed or may have been specific to where I was teaching, but I would wager these items are still valid most everywhere today.
You can quit, you can graduate, and you can die. Failing is not an option. If you fail, then they will make you take the course again. If you fail again, then they will assign you a tutor. At this school, graduate students working on their Ph. At the end of every semester professors would post their grades by student number to maintain anonymity.
Once a medical student, you become protected. There are people at the school whose primary purpose in life is to fix the problems students get into. Whether it is run ins with the law, drugs, failing, emotional breakdowns, or whatever, the students are coddled as though they were Heisman Trophy candidates. Lastly and most importantly, there is one item that can never be forgotten.
This has happened to me a large number of times, but being a mere Ph. A classic example of this occurred when a friend of mine was telling me about his wife who vomited after every meal. Sometimes it was immediate and other times it would take an hour or two before she started vomiting. She had a hiatal hernia repair, but that accomplished nothing and after 20 years of doctors, specialists, endless testing, etc.
I convinced my friend to cook her her favorite dish using olive oil as the only fat and, after she ate it, she did not vomit. We worked together to come up with other recipes that contained only olive oil as the sole fat and her vomiting has ceased completely. That was around six months ago and she is now able to tolerate other fats in limited amounts on occasion and her health has improved remarkably. Her attitude has also improved as has their marriage.
One would think that some doctor would think to ask about diet and such, but none did. Is it any wonder why a leading cause of death in this country is medical error? Imagine the incompetence of a physician who is well below average. Some places, completely. That depressing and scary. I feel as if I should wear a full suit of medieval armor on my next visit to the doctor. Say, lemme look at yer credentials and grade records with my portable electron microscope.
I programmed. Ever tried coding while in pain? Or under the influence … well not me, under the influence for me is code for nighty-night, I have no tolerance for pain or muscle relaxants.
We both ultimately ended up with scans to determine what was going on. Nothing found. They wanted to do back surgery. Would have meant 6 to 8 months of no work, minimum. Someone, non-medical, suggested a Chiropractor. Hubby, when he first started, had to go twice a day, 3 times a week to keep things aligned, as muscle memory kept pulling things out of wack. For about 6 months. I go in. Chiropractor breaks things loose. Still sore, but I can move. Only had to go back once in less than a week because I felt it lock back up.

She documents how the Nazis studied the racial systems in America to plan their out-cast of the Jews; she discusses why the cruel logic of caste requires that there be a bottom rung for those in the middle to measure themselves against; she writes about the surprising health costs of caste, in depression and life expectancy, and the effects of this hierarchy on our culture and politics.
Finally, she points forward to ways America can move beyond the artificial and destructive separations of human divisions, toward hope in our common humanity. Sean Hannity. America is great for a reason. Built on principles of freedom, rugged individualism, and self-sufficiency, no country has ever accumulated more power and wealth, abused it less, or used that power more to advance the human condition.
And yet, as America blossomed, leftwing radicalism and resentment festered beneath the surface, threatening to undermine democracy first in the sixties and now—more insidiously than ever—in the form of social justice warriors, the deep state, and compromised institutions like academia and the mainstream media.
Our fate if we succumb to a Democratic victory in ? A big step toward full-blown socialism along with the economic dysfunction and social strife that are its hallmarks. With radical Democrats demanding the Green New Deal, socialized medicine, abortion on demand, open borders, abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and an end to free speech, our great nation will be fundamentally transformed beyond recognition.

Ruler of the Night. David Morrell. The notorious Opium-Eater returns in the sensational climax to David Morrell's acclaimed Victorian mystery trilogy. The railway has irrevocably altered English society, effectively changing geography and fueling the industrial revolution by shortening distances between cities: a whole day's journey can now be covered in a matter of hours. People marvel at their new freedom.
But train travel brings new dangers as well, with England's first death by train recorded on the very first day of railway operations in Twenty-five years later, England's first train murder occurs, paralyzing London with the unthinkable when a gentleman is stabbed to death in a safely locked first-class passenger compartment. In the next compartment, the brilliant opium-eater Thomas De Quincey and his quick-witted daughter, Emily, discover the homicide in a most gruesome manner.
Key witnesses and also resourceful sleuths, they join forces with their allies in Scotland Yard, Detective Ryan and his partner-in-training, Becker, to pursue the killer back into the fogbound streets of London, where other baffling murders occur. Ultimately, De Quincey must confront two ruthless adversaries: this terrifying enemy, and his own opium addiction which endangers his life and his tormented soul.
Ruler of the Night is a riveting blend of fact and fiction which, like master storyteller David Morrell's previous De Quincey novels, "evokes Victorian London with such finesse that you'll hear the hooves clattering on cobblestones, the racket of dustmen, and the shrill calls of vendors" Entertainment Weekly.
Keith R. Following the surprise resignation of Federation President Min Zife after the disastrous Tezwa affair, Nan Bacco of Cestus III has won a hotly contested election to become the new chief executive of over one hundred fifty planetary civilizations and their colonies.
