Quotes of The Day

Quote I

The years teach much which the days never know. Ralph Waldo Emerson


Quote II

I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend. Thomas Jefferson

The obvious question, would he say this today?


Quote III

Does not the gratitude of the dog put to shame any man who is ungrateful to his benefactors? Saint Basil


*****

March 13, 1942. U.S. Army launches K-9 Corps.

In the United States, the practice of training dogs for military purposes was largely abandoned after World War I. When the country entered World War II in December 1941, the American Kennel Association and a group called Dogs for Defense began a movement to mobilize dog owners to donate healthy and capable animals to the Quartermaster Corps of the U.S. Army. Training began in March 1942, and that fall the QMC was given the task of training dogs for the U.S. Navy, Marines and Coast Guard as well.


Ever been stranded? Have you ever dreamed of being stranded? So you find yourself stranded on a deserted island. What one book would you take along?

Outside of the Christian Faith, the Holy Bible has some great stories and is fine literature.


On a similar note, What LP would you save if your house was burning down.

Your humble Cob isn't a collector. So I really don't have one that I would save for the money. Instead imagine yourself on a deserted island with one choice. What LP would you be able to listen to over and over again?


Do bookstore employees get bored? The answer is, YES.

Seems to The ONT they have way too much time on their hands.


Quite the creation. Kick butt rubber-band gun.

The New York court system makes history. Tri-Custody awarded to Three-some.

The threesome was one big happy family for 18 months until Garcia and Dawn Marano decided to become a twosome. They moved out and into a new home in nearby Central Islip in 2008.

Then Michael Marano sued Garcia for custody of their son. Dawn Marano then sued her husband for divorce.

Michael Marano and Garcia agreed to joint custody, but Dawn felt left out. As neither a biological nor adoptive mom to the boy, she had no automatic legal right to custody.

Since 2010 The GOP has campaigned on the Repeal of Obamacare. From 2012 they have passed numerous Repeal Acts knowing full well they would never be passed in the Senate, let alone that the JEF would sign a repeal of his vaunted legislation. One would have thought a serious member or two of the House would have worked with on or two Senators to come up with a Repeal & Replace package the day the Dems were out of power. One would have thought.

Anyway The GOP should have been careful for what they wished for. The American Public gave a big Fuck You to the powers that be this past November. Now they have the chance to govern and they can't. Repeal & Replace Obamacare Period.

Traveling this past week I heard my fair share of talk radio. The GOP Replacement is good, bad or indifferent. Here is one of the best laid out and written analysis's of the GOP House Plan.

Republicans' latest attempt to change Obamacare is nothing more than misdirection. It replaces "subsidies" with "tax credits", continues Medicaid expansion until an election year (when nothing gets done), and keeps the most costly items such as guaranteed issue, community rating, and no pre-existing conditions exclusion in place.


The VA. No amount of money will fix it.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is the largest health care provider in the United States. The V.A. runs more than 1,700 locations, provides care to nine million vets and spends an annual budget of around $200 billion. It runs 163 hospitals and employs more than 200,000 people. By contrast, the next largest health care company employs just over 100,000.


Will the GOP screw up Repeal & Replace so bad that Single Payer is the law of the land? The VA is a perfect example why the damn GOP better get it right. But, The ONT is not holding its breath.


The ONT Musical Interlude

March 13, 1971, Brewer and Shipley entered the US singles chart with 'One Toke Over The Line'. The song, which featured The Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia on steel guitar, peaked at No.10 despite being banned by radio stations for its drug references. Brewer and Shipley maintained that the word "toke" meant "token" as in ticket, hence the line "waitin' downtown at the railway station, one toke over the line."via thisdayinmusic.com

March 13, 2006, The Sex Pistols refused to attend their own induction into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Blondie, Herb Alpert and Black Sabbath were all inducted but the Pistols posted a handwritten note on their website, calling the institution "urine in wine", adding "We're not your monkeys, we're not coming. You're not paying attention" via thisdayinmusic.com


Do you consider mood swings, flying off the handle and jumping to conclusions exercise? If you do, you may be allergic to exercise.

Since this 1979 report, there have been numerous accounts of patients who have had anaphylactic reactions from exercise, including recognizing the link between food and other allergies when combined with exercise- as previously mentioned with food dependent seemingly the most common.

To be specifically diagnosed with EIA, you need to have symptoms of anaphylaxis associated with exercise. The cause must also be differentiated from an anaphylactic reaction due to food dependent anaphylaxis or being exposed to an allergen before the workout.

In tonight's Oh For F*ck's Sake segment, it is always darkest before the dawn. Students triggered by an inanimate object.

Carleton University has made the decision to remove the weight scale from their campus gym after a student complained about being "triggered" by the device ... which, presumably, she chose to step on. A sign where the scale once stood explains that the university's choice to remove the scale is “in keeping with current fitness and social trends.”

Or, more accurately, "in keeping with pathetic social justice safe space trends.

Allergic to exercise? Hooked on phonics cheeseburgers? I wish she was afraid of the spork.

33 Snow hasn't started yet here (CT) but is supposed to dump YUGE amounts (3 to 4 inches per hour) starting sometime in the wee hours/early morning. Our SJW Dem mayor (but of course) has had sound trucks roaming around the city most of the afternoon blaring warnings about the coming snowpocalypse/snownado and threatening fines for ignoring parking bans and failure to clear sidewalks after the snow checks its white privilege and leaves town.

The LP I'd take if I were stranded on the proverbial island? Bach's Mass in B Minor.

Yeah, no. I talked to my boss before I left work today and said I'd do my best to be on time tomorrow, but if there was a lot of snow on my driveway in the morning, I might be late. He understood.

The only way that small business will be closed is if there's a power failure. And even I could do filing.

38 Shared this too late in the last thread...

I tried a new coffee place this morning, called Javatini's. (Need a decaf coffee fix and don't want to give Starbucks my money anymore.)

Everything went well... except that there were these two loudmouth older men sitting in the corner with their coffee, going on and on about healthcare and how they can't believe some people don't want the gubmint involved. Thankfully I was trying to actively NOT listen and as a result never heard the names "Trump" or "Obama" or "Bush" or anyone else's name uttered, but it did seem they were trying to have a great liberal compassion-off.

I got out of there with my coffee to go (Irish Cream Latte) and was happy not to have to listen to those guys. Will go back to Javatini's but hope they're not there again next time.

51 The New York court system makes history. Tri-Custody awarded to Three-some.

I'm pretty sure that someone on this site suggested that after lefties got gay marriage they wouldn't stop there, and would go after something such as polygamy. I get the impression that they just like f**king with regular people.

Talk to people who work in schools. More and more kids are a gigantic mess. We as a society are destroying the nuclear family and the results are entirely predictable. My sister works as an aide in an early elementary school, preschool through first grade, and it is common for to be out of control to the point where they have to be restrained, and picked up and carried to the office. It is common for them to strike teachers.

Through the welfare system and the attitude that baby daddies don't have to marry the mothers of their children, we're draining people of any sense of personal responsibility.

76 I bet the great snownado is less than they are hyping

I hope you're right about hype (it's been called "weather porn"), but OTOH yesterday's prediction of 8 to 12 inches for this area was upped this evening to 12 to 24 with maybe some rain mixed in at the end, which adds to the risk of a power outage if the rain freezes on the power lines. This being already a blue state, the last thing we need is more snowflakes, special or otherwise.

I think this is a problem in search of a massive government solution. Clocks should adjust precisely for lat/lon, and depending on the season, minutes after sundown are shorter in duration....and of course longer after sun up, all adjusting automatically so that there are always twelve hours of light, and twelve hours of dark.

The new clocks will obviously be prohibitively expensive, so income adjusted subsidies will be required. People who refuse to purchase the new government approved clocks through government mandated retailers will be forced to pay a 'fine'.

137 Baby Sister Update:

Lots to report, including some really good news.

As expected, today was Joyce's last day for chemo. They've also discontinued the Temador (daily pill), which was expected. She'll continue on the Avastin indefinitely, but that's only every couple of weeks, so much less strain on her and Hubby (and Niece).

On the other hand, her platelet count was low (likely as result of treatment); Hubby hastened to add that it was still "pretty good for end of chemo. Will recheck on Thursday."

Here's the really great news, though: she was able to walk about 5 yards with help - Hubby says that the "best news is that she is able to walk short distances; we'll  investigate local PT at facility rather than at home."

WooHoo!

Please keep praying for strength and courage for her.

189 Since 2010 The GOP has campaigned on the Repeal of Obamacare. From 2012 they have passed numerous Repeal Acts knowing full well they would never be passed in the Senate, let alone that the JEF would sign a repeal of his vaunted legislation. One would have thought a serious member or two of the House would have worked with on or two Senators to come up with a Repeal Replace package the day the Dems were out of power. One would have thought.

Anyway The GOP should have been careful for what they wished for. The American Public gave a big Fuck You to the powers that be this past November. Now they have the chance to govern and they can't. Repeal Replace Obamacare Period.

++++

They can't. The original Obamacare bill passed with 60 Dem votes in the Senate. Filibuster proof majority. Then Kennedy died. So, the House passed the identical bill and Obama signed it.

Then comes the second bill. House Dems passed a bill that was (allegedly) funding issues only. Senate passed it through the reconciliation process. They no longer had their 60 votes, as Brown replaced Kennedy, but the reconciliation process is not subject to filibuster, so they just needed a simple majority.

With the numbers they have, the GOP has three choices:
1. Do nothing
2. Change the rules in the Senate to eliminate filibusters for legislation
3. Something like what they are doing now.

There are not 50 GOP senators willing to completely ditch the filibuster. There has been talk of eliminating it for SCOTUS nominees if the Dems filibuster Gorsuch, but guys like Hatch, McCain, etc will not go along with eliminating it for legislation.

As I understand it, the GOP's 3 step plan is:
A. Use the reconciliation process to change stuff that is purely funding (that's the bill they are working on now).
B. Have Secretary Price use his power to implement changes in the law where he has discretion (all those place in the law where it says that the "Secretary shall"). I think there's like 1500 different place in Obamacare that uses that language.
C. New additional legislation to repeal. This can only happen if the GOP get more numbers in the Senate in 2018 (or if the Dems come to the table before then in light of the changes in the first two phases - yeah right).

The Conservative Treehouse has been writing on this.

And she has to write all this awfulness down, and she draws a smiley face after the sentence about her cancer. Like she doesnt want the reader to get upset. I cant get it out of my head.

And if her son gets to do this great thing, she may not see him again but she wants him to go anyway

I am 100% in agreement with you on the first paragraph.

I go back and forth on the filibuster, since I think it will come back to bite us in the future. But, as the Dems showed under Reid, they will get rid of it when it really matters.

But, it's a moot point. The numbers simply are not there to get rid of it. I wish we could get rid of humps like McCain, Graham, Collins, Hatch, Murkowski, etc, etc, etc. But, sadly, we are stuck with them.

237 Beethoven's Ninth was "Choral"; Beethoven's Third was "Eroica".

While we're at it, his Sixth was "Pastoral".

238 That list of books is horrible. Where is the Bible, the Lord of the Rings, the Iliad, the Odyssey, Paradise Lost, The Faerie Queen, Canterbury Tales, just about anything by CS Lewis or GK Chesterton? Writing that requires thought, rereading, and stimulates and inspires contemplation and new stories growing out of the original.

I shudder at the vacuity and inadequacy of almost everything included. I wonder if whoever put that list together is embarrassed.

Eroica is the Third Symphony. But it's a damned good choice. The Ninth would be mine, it never gets old. Never.

Plus, with the Ninth you get to daydream about Die Hard.

260 "I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend." -Thomas Jefferson

What a load of horseshit. Jefferson trashed John Adams mercilessly and if it weren't for Adams being the bigger man and writing him in their later years, they never would have reconciled. Oh yeah, Jefferson also sold the woman who raised his children and bore his own child into slavery after his death. Doesn't get colder than that. Not to mention the fact he HAD to sell his book collection to the nascent Library of Congress because his irresponsible broke ass couldn't balance his finances.

At the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War at Appomattox, VA I met a professor from UMASS who, like me, felt warm to Adams and thought Jefferson an eloquent douche. We got shitcanned and talked shit on the ginger for hours. One of my favorite vacation memories ever...

The Senate passed something that said that they needed 67 votes to kill the treaty Obama came up with, not 67 to pass it as the Constitution declares. Since it passed with the 67 votes, they gave Obama the power to negotiate a treaty that the Senate would not have to approve.

327 264 MH, yup. I posted last night: the GOP just doesn't know how to work as a majority party.
Posted by: qdpsteve at March 13, 2017 11:03 PM (u8kLQ)


If you think about it, the GOP has only had a majority in both the House and Senate for about 10 of the last 60 years, and only about 2 of those years with a GOP President.

Plus, most of the places that the GOP House/Senate members come from are areas that were Democrat controlled. People like to talk about how the GOP controls the South, but it has just been in the last 15 years that they have taken control of those states' legislatures, they were almost always still Dem controlled. That is where the Dems learned how to be the party in the majority.

Morgan Griffith, R-VA, is the one who dug up the Holman Rule to defund government positions. He was the Majority Leader in the Virginia House before running for the congressional seat, and now he's bringing that hammer to DC. He fought to get the GOP in control of the state house, and he was elected when the GOP took back over the US House.

McConnell, McCain, Graham, and the Maine/Alaska bints are used to doing whatever the Dems wanted them to do so that they could get some little scraps of legislation thrown to them by the Dems. The new members are now "Majority" GOP, and they are trying to remind this dickwits that the GOP is now in control, and it's time to do what the GOP voters want, finally.

The book that posited that the purpose of the SIS and later MI-6 was to travel to the top of Mt. Ararat and kill the Genie that lived there in Noah's Ark.

So he'd be completely okay with Christians being enslaved by gay couples for their pretend weddings and stuff.

I'm pretty sure that someone on this site suggested that after
lefties got gay marriage they wouldn't stop there, and would go after
something such as polygamy. I get the impression that they just like
f**king with regular people.


Through the welfare system and the attitude that baby daddies don't
have to marry the mothers of their children, we're draining people of
any sense of personal responsibility.


I've been pushing it for a while, mostly because the left has admitted that gay marriage would be used to push "non-monogamy". And it wasn't going to be some muslim immigrant, but one of these lefty "enlightened" three-somes. I'm honestly surprised that the Obama admin didn't invite some poly family to the WH during LGBT celebrations.

382 #363: Personally, I think the next step is incest. Same-sex incest, to be precise. They've already done so much to separate sex from childbirth, after all.

I've been pointing out for a while now that some states allow first cousins to marry, while other states don't. This is similar to the fact that a few years ago some states allowed gay couples to marry, while others didn't. One of these instances of federalism and states' rights got buffaloed by the Supreme Court, while the other didn't. At some point, someone will point out that that's not fair.

Cousins marrying has not been a cause celebre with the left or anything, but I think with gay marriage already in the bag they'll take a step beyond that. If a pair of brothers or a pair of sisters can't produce children, they'll argue that birth defects are off the table and thus there's no reason to deny a pair of same-sex siblings the romantic love they (totes naturally, and stuff) feel for each other.

You can't forbid people from coupling just because their offspring may be defective. Therefore you can't stand in the way of their marrying the person they loooooove.

401 382 #363: Personally, I think the next step is incest. Same-sex incest, to be precise. They've already done so much to separate sex from childbirth, after all.

I've been pointing out for a while now that some states allow first cousins to marry, while other states don't. This is similar to the fact that a few years ago some states allowed gay couples to marry, while others didn't. One of these instances of federalism and states' rights got buffaloed by the Supreme Court, while the other didn't. At some point, someone will point out that that's not fair.

Cousins marrying has not been a cause celebre with the left or anything, but I think with gay marriage already in the bag they'll take a step beyond that. If a pair of brothers or a pair of sisters can't produce children, they'll argue that birth defects are off the table and thus there's no reason to deny a pair of same-sex siblings the romantic love they (totes naturally, and stuff) feel for each other.

403 from Allan Bloom's Introduction to "The Closing of the American Mind":

"...almost every student entering the university believes . . .that truth is relative....The relativity of truth is not a theoretical insight but a moral postulate....

[this] is revealed by the character of their response when challenged--a combination of disbelief and indignation....

Openness--and the relativism that makes it the only plausible stance in the face of various claims to truth and various ways of life and kinds of human beings--is the great insight of our times....

the point is...not to think at all....the purpose of their education is not to make them scholars but to provide them with...--openness."

There is right and wrong, and everyone-- except people like socipaths-- know what it is.

Homosexuals

know what they are doing is wrong. Pedophiles know what they're doing

is wrong. So do polygamists. And those who sexually abuse animals.

However,

no one wants to feel bad about themselves. If we make these deviant

behaviors normal, and force people to "accept" them. these people do not

feel bad about these behaviors. They no longer feel bad. They are no

longer guilty. They feel better about doing things that they know are

morally wrong, and no longer have to deal with their feelings.

It's all about making them feel good about their deviant behavior.

My 2¢ on the suppositional scenario...

• Book

All good little church-raised chilluns gotta say "Bible," o'course, but I'm afraid I'd need a huge, annotated study version - There are parts of the OT I've never actually explored.

But, then, I think of Lord of the Rings - entertaining and uplifting. And long.

But, maybe, the complete works of Shakespeare? That would help pass the days leaning against that one palm tree.

• LP (to play on solar-powered record player)

Can I have an iPod full of the SCOAMF's greatest speeches? Ha ha (urp) just joking.

That old "Environments" ambient album with sounds of the surf.

569 "As an example, let's look at Islam.

They have generations of inbreeding between first cousins."

Pakistanis in particular. In the England of the 21st century, you have 15 year old girls - British citizens - who are shipped back to Pakistan to forcibly marry some first cousins that they have never met. They wait in Pakistan until the bride turns 16, and the husband gets admitted to England, because he is married to a British citizen.

The British government does nothing about this, of course.

Medical data suggests that while British Pakistanis are responsible for 3 per cent of all births in Britain, they accounted for 30 per cent of British children born with a genetic illness.

576 I think my county has the most craft breweries in the country. I really enjoy their stuff, and visiting different places. I know a lot more about wine and wine-making than brewing, so I'm learning the "hard" way, by tasting.


Just as with wine travel, prefer the smaller places, avoid the places that are on the tourism circuit, and always avoid "events" (well, except 2nd Amendment night last year at a very good brewery/distillery near one of our gyms, where most of the brews are named after firearms, too).


Overall it can be a very nice package. Parking no issue (like in the old days), as they're mostly in industrial/commercial parks. Great variety in styles and brews. Informal atmosphere (very little hipster b.s., actually, it's mainstream). Dog-friendly for our friends who like to bring their pooches. Friendly and informative staff who often are also the brewers, so, edumucation. Food trucks that can be outstanding.


Not eating out that much for a while, for no particular reason, but a few brew-pubs are among the best and most reliable in the non-ethnic restaurant category. Just ate at one Saturday after the Blue Angels' show.

588 *unstatic*

I had "politeness" beaten into my head since I was born.

-English
-Polite
-Listen
-Watch
-Defer
-Fight

Those were the Proper Steps to get what I've gotten.

My Father told me to "defer" until you know you're right. Then you fight tooth-and-nail to get what you need. Not what you want, but what you deserve.

The internet seems to be a different atmosphere than I grew-up in.

I still expect polite people, (especially The Horde), to do polite things.

Am I wrong?

Wishing someone a "Good Night" isn't beyond the pale, or so I presumed.

I am NOT special and the people I've stood-up in front of have let me know that in spades. I am not a comedian, yet I have hosted many live audiences.

Feedback is immediate.

Perhaps I am searching for too much and I can appreciate that. I am a little "needy". (Read :"selfish".)

I watched people leave and others asking, "Is 'X' still here?"

I immediately started wishing others a "Good Night", so as to reduce the confusion. Perhaps that is solely "my thing".

I'm not asking for The World. That is beyond my grasp. What I am asking for is a bit of politeness.

I'll get The World tomorrow. Tonight, I'm simply asking for some consideration.

-Your Friendly Neighborhood Slapweasel.

P.S.: My Prayer List is upstairs, but if you ask The Horde will pray for you.

597 pain meds, in moderation, help speed healing.

trying to "power" through the pain, or what have you, actually retards healing.

of course, taking the pain meds to excess defeats the whole process, but that's a different issue.

of course docs who under prescribe are as bad, if not worse, as those who over prescribe, and it doesn't help to have quacks who refuse to stay current on the current best practices on pain management.

there are a lot of options between hurting and stoned, but a lot of providers don't avail themselves of them

The dirty little secret. From Nov. 5, 2015. I'm sure the drug deaths have climbed even higher (pun intended).

http://preview.tinyurl.com/huk8yz9

"Drug overdose deaths are the leading cause of injury death in the United States, ahead of motor vehicle deaths and firearms (deaths)," the Drug Enforcement Agency announced on Wednesday.

In 2013, the most recent year for which data is available, 46,471 people in the United States died from drug overdoses, and more than half of those deaths were caused by prescription painkillers and heroin.

That compares with the 35,369 who died in motor vehicle crashes and 33,636 who died from firearms, as tallied by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

599 My broken arm was "over and done" in six weeks without another hospital visit.

I took the cast off myself, without paying another $600 for an "Office Visit".

What made me leery of the drugs was the fact that I was willing to make-up an excuse to get more Vicodin.

I didn't, but I wanted to.

My buddy called me after he snapped his achilles tendon and told me that he thought he was being "over-medicated" and I agreed with him.

That shit is dangerous.

610 Goodnight (or not) to Slapweasel.

RE: pain meds-

I wish I could get something to use periodically; I'm going to ask my doctor. Broke my humerus at the growth plate at 12, and lately it's been really hurting on occasion, a few times so I can't sleep easily. Also broke a leg and had a four inch plate that got removed a year later. It also sometimes acts up, and I get a Charlie horse in my arch. Sore and stiff for days.

It's only been pretty bad (wishing I had more than Tylenol) about three (?) times a month, maybe four. I had pills left over from a procedure last year and I milked them until Feb. (The cold weather and shoveling hasn't helped with the shoulder.) I've heard from friends that doctors have been reluctant to prescribe them, even for stuff you wouldn't think would be an issue.

Something stronger for those bad nights so I can fall asleep more easily would be nice though. =| Codeine makes me sick and at best I can take ibuprofen in very limited amount before my ulcer acts up, so I generally don't even chance it.

I guess I don't get the allure of taking too many. When I broke my leg and was in excruciating pain, taking the recommended amount made me so dizzy I almost vomited. Are there that many people who want to be so separated from what's going on in life? Heard about a former member of Three Doors Down (I think), who killed someone whilst under the influence, he had prescriptions for over 100 pills at a time!

615 I've had two ruptured lumbar disks, ten years apart. Prescribed Vicodin after the surgeries both times. Took one or two pills, that was enough. I credit the doctors who did such a good job that post-op pain wasn't unbearable. Plus, the post-op pain was orders of magnitude less than the pre-op pain, so I figured I could hack it. Also pre-op (second time), I was given gabepentin (something like that). Only took it once or twice... That stuff messed with my mind worse than Vicodin.

Posted by: Average Guy at March 14, 2017 03:23 AM (LMcFk)

616 I will say it is sometimes handed out too easily; friend got morphine for a minor procedure. My mom was on it (morphine) at the end of her life for cancer that had spread throughout her abdomen, and she needed it. That shit is fucked up.

I was visiting her, (she lived out of state), and we went over one morning. She was kind of... weird. Said she had had a dream where she was positive she woke up but she hadn't. She kept waking up in the dream, in her room, where she was sleeping, but it wasn't reality, and there were dark overtones.

One night she was bad and her friend, a former nurse, gave her a shot of morphine in her port. It was practically instantaneous - her eyes got glassy and weird, almost inhuman. Scared the shit out of me.

That's for the standard edition. Standard comes with Word, Excel, Power Point, Outlook. If you need MS Access, their db program, you need the pro edition.

Ebay is better than Craigslist for that kind of thing. The seller in this listing has a 99.5% positive rating, with over 1000 votes. If I was looking for a legit copy, I'd go with this.

Libre Office is pretty good as well, but the interface just isn't quite a polished and there are occasional inconsistencies when you are trying to exchange files with someone who uses MS.

The messed up thing was, after a while it didn't help too much my mom said.

Well, I can definitely speak for the musician. If a musician is in it for the power and the glory then that in itself becomes a drug, and when it becomes routine you need something "bigger". Its a hard thing to explain. It never bit me, because the huge sound of the amps, the whole viking aspect of being a metal guitar player was enough. Others not so much, they get hooked on the power, and they start to feel invincible. In a nutshell, people treat them like gods and they start to believe.

As far as others go, maybe life sucks too much and they just want to escape.

And, you would be wrong. My husband has DDD, which means his lower three lumbar disks are toast. The bones rest on bones, and you can imagine what that does to the nerves.

The docs all say he's too young to have fusion, so, meds. He takes Kadian, which is time-release morphine, and then he also takes morphine for the break through pain that flares up. Still, some days he cannot get out of his chair. Without the meds, he cannot even think, let alone move.

Is he addicted? Probably, but you would never know it. He functions quite highly right up until he cannot.

There are no other solutions, or we would have taken those paths. He won't die from the pain, nor from the morphine. He won't become addicted to heroin, or any other street drug. He will continue to provide for his family and pray that we all end up in heaven.

It is easy to judge when you aren't in the crosshairs.

Then they had him on morphine, then methadone to wean him from the fentanyl.

After he was hospitalized for the final time (lung cancer), he was unable to take pills, and the patches weren't even touching the pain.

Took forever for both VA and Scott & White to come up with a game plan to manage the pain.

At the end, he barely had the strength to push the button on his pump.

I'm thankful that he wasn't in pain.

629 ..."Is he addicted? Probably, but you would never know it. He functions quite highly right up until he cannot.

There are no other solutions, or we would have taken those paths. He won't die from the pain, nor from the morphine. He won't become addicted to heroin, or any other street drug. He will continue to provide for his family and pray that we all end up in heaven.

It is easy to judge when you aren't in the crosshairs.

But this is the reason that those with much lesser injuries should not be prescribed with such opiates.

That sort of pain is not "human". It is WELL beyond the pale.

It is what that sort of medication was made for.

there is a spectrum of pain, and a spectrum of treatment options, each with it's pluses and minuses.

further more, there is a variety of disease states that require pain management, and all patients are unique, so one size does NOT fit all.

treatment has to be customized for each patient, or you will fail to properly treat a certain percentage of the total.

there are NO simple answers.

You are full of shit.

Just because a drug can be abused does not mean that it can be responsibly prescribed - in appropriate doses - for pain management. If it is a problem for you to take, fine, don't take it. But that is no reason a doctor, in consultation with his patient, shouldn't use whatever drug if that is what is best for the patient.

I've had Vicodin prescribed to me on 2 separate occasions, and have had no issues with it. I still have most of the pills from the last time sitting in a drawer because my pain cleared up long before the pills ran out. They will sit there in that drawer until they expire, unless something happens where I need to manage the pain.

Thing is, doctor are already under extreme scrutiny from the feds regarding their prescription practices. It is already a highly regulated undertaking. Doctors can be reluctant to prescribe necessary pain management drugs because of fear that they will come under additional scrutiny if their records show lots of prescriptions for those kinds of meds.

I don't want to be in a position where a doctor won't write a script for pain killers because he is too worried that some people would like to see him get his license yanked.

666 With my heart condition and propensity to have blood clots, if I go to the ER, I tell the nurse(s), "I'm here to scam the heparin." Always gets a chuckle. I also think it lets them know I am here for a real reason, not a frequent flyer looking for pain drugs, which they see all too often. I've turned down pain meds in the hospital, telling the nurse(s) that if and when I need it, I'll let them know. I am of the firm belief that in saying that, should I need something, I'll get it because I didn't take it when offered. When my ICD went off 7 times in 13 hours, I didn't need pain meds but I did need something to calm me down so I could sleep as I was so scared my device would go off again I was too tense to sleep. But that's just me. As stated above, everybody is different. It's why I hate the 'one size fits all' pain treatment that will become prevalent should 404Care remain or, God forbid, we ever get to single payer/national health care. I also think the government going after doctors who prescribe pain meds on a patient by patient basis is ludicrous but I'm fine going after the pain script mill 'doctors'.

Actually, passing it was the easiest part. The pain was momentary and not really that bad. The high of seeing the stone finally out was sweeter than anything else.

(I'll admit it, I showed it to people. I still have it around here somewhere.)

The thing about kidney stones is that it kind of resets your pain scale. I tore a ligament in my shoulder in college and it was sunshine, puppy dog tails and rainbows compared to that.

By the time it gets to your dick, it's no longer so much of a problem. At least that was my experience. I had kidney stones only once, but the part that hurts is when they are up inside you, scratching their way through the internal plumbing.

It only stopped around 5-6 times during that 8 months. The stones only really hurt when they block the ureter and the urine backs up into the kidney, causing them to swell and unleashing the pain.

I don't know what you mean by that last sentence. You can't outlaw addiction. I mean, you can try... that's what we have now. It doesn't work. Imprisoning people for becoming addicted to drugs just causes more pain. Not to mention that all our prisons are rife with drug use anyway. Hell, half the time, it's the CO's smuggling the stuff in.

People get all up on their moral high horse about how they have to protect people from drugs, and then the advocate policies that tear those very people's lives apart. How is someone who has a problem with coke going to be helped by having a felony conviction for drug use, spending some time in the slammer... He comes out, if he had a woman when he went in, she is probably gone. No job, no home. And now he gets to try to put his life back together with all that on his back.

Please, stop trying to help those people. You are not.

695 They give you Oxycontin through a tiny tube in your thigh when you have knee replacement surgery, but only while you are in the hospital. After that, they give some pretty good stuff, but they won't let you abuse it.

Wise doctor once told me to not be a martyr immediately after a surgery, as that could extend the length of recovery. I've always found that if I use that philosophy the first 24-48 hours, I need much less pain medication after that.

I'm watching an "explosive" interview of Tom Cotton by ginger lawn gnome Chuck Todd and so far Cotton has only given reasoned, measured responses. Still waiting for him to throw chairs and pull a knife, which would be my go-to response.

'Mornin' rons and ettes.

Ahhh, the miracle of modern chemistry.

Mom might weigh 100 pounds. She has bone spurs on her spine. Her pain management 'doctor' has her on 80 mg of ocycontin, then the ocycodone, and valium. For 18 years. He should be not be prescribing drugs to a dog.

In other news, addictive behavior is just that and should be identified, if possible, in advance. Heroin users can be weaned off the stuff. Same for the lesser drugs. My opinion.

In other news, its farqing cold outside here in N. Indiana. And I do not like it. I need to make warm oatmeal for our hens. Several have gone on strike.

721 Morning, all. Snow just starting here in northern MA. We're supposed to get about 12-18 inches, possibly mixed with rain and sleet, which will make it a stone-cold bitch to get rid of with a snowblower. I was hoping I wouldn't have to come in to work, but hospitals never close.

I would much rather be back in my big, soft, warm bed at Stately Poppins Manor, curled up with a handwarmer such as this:

724 I passed the opp to buy a snow shovel for five bucks yesterday. Its march, I said to myself. The snow will melt!

I packed one in my car. According to the weather reports, the height of the storm will be from 9am to 4pm (!), so, depending on when I can leave, the plows crossing our parking lot may have blocked me in and I'll need to dig out to get home to start the snowblower to get into my driveway.

This is going to be a terrible day.

I would love to do that. I'm trying to find something good to read at the moment, but almost all of the new books I've bought have turned out to be less interesting than I imagined.

If anybody here is a true crime buff, there's a new book out about the Thalia Massie case called A Death in the Islands. Massie was a Navy wife stationed in Hawaii in 1931 when she claimed she was raped by a gang of natives. Eventually, her husband took matters into his own hands and one of the accused ended up dead. The husband then got Clarence Darrow to defend him:

733 She loved every minute of it, and laughed in his face as he cried in the corner and wept for just one moment of them together. He was a jibbering crying fool, incapable of what he did wrong as I took his woman into a world that had never been known before, and that is why dinosaurs went extinct.

741 I have a story I told about how I got my name, it's the second find on a google search.

Posted by: wickedpinto at March 14, 2017 07:06 AM (CIpNU)

742 As an aside, I'm trying to convince my fiance' who HAS done cosplay in the past, to dress up like Psylocke from X-Men Apocalypse. I AM Captain America, so it will just be fair trade I think, but she asked me, "Why not Storm? Storms an Omega Mutant" I then schooled her on the leveling of mutants that there are really only 3 cat 5 mutants in the marvel universe, Xavier, Magneto and Phoenix, until they started playing with the powers of the children like David (Legion) and cable and so on. Hell Quicksilver is cat 5 in my opinion but in the RPG rules he's 4.

BUT I still want my fiance' and as soon as I can make it wife, to dress up as psylocke.

Oh, I also said that the woman who plays the new storm sucks. she said, "she barely existed in the movie how do you know?" I said, "little tits." Because that's how I roll.
