The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"I called some people from the city hall who were working in front of the club to help me, I called and they didn't believe it, they thought I was kidding," he added joking that the animal was "a little hot and wanted to swim."
Country club's president, João Luiz Andrade Zevole


Quote II

"The course correction that I've been trying to work on since I left government service is you have to find a way to correct the media," Kash Patel


Quote III

Follow the science? Where’s the science saying the masks have any effect but to give lonely, sexually underutilized lib wine mommies the giddy thrill of pretending they are confronting some perilous peril when they gag their pale, dopey kids and wrap a thong around their talkslots in order to go out in the sunshine and take a walk. Kurt Schlichter


Quote IV

“It is utterly amazing that it's taken so long for the supply chain to rebound after the global economy came to a halt during Covid,” Brian Matas, vice president of market research at IC Insights

Often I am opinionated as I deliver the news and current events of the day. I try not to be preachy. But, I will get behind my bully pulpit and say: I never want to hear any Moron asking on how to get out of jury duty. Everybody is entitled to their day in court. And a jury of peers is not too much to ask for. I have no idea how many people attempted to be removed from the Kyle Rittenhouse jury pool. Hopefully, there are several individuals on that jury which think the prosecuting attorneys are incompetent at best and lying scum bags at worst. And after watching quite a bit of the trial. I think Rittenhouse is not guilty of the charges. Let's hope and pray that the jury votes the same way.


WHOA: Rittenhouse Prosecutor Thomas Binger Aims AR-15 at People in Courtroom, Finger on the Trigger


“That is what provokes this entire incident,” Binger told jurors at some point during his gun-waving close. “When the defendant provokes this incident, he loses the right to self-defense. You cannot claim self-defense against a danger you create.”

No, dumbass, foolhardy idiots waving around weapons without trigger discipline is how you get innocent people killed on accident.

It was just a few weeks ago that Alec Baldwin killed a woman doing almost the exact same thing with a weapon he didn’t know (because he didn’t check) was loaded.

The most important rules of gun safety are:

Every weapon is loaded
Never aim your weapon at something you don’t mean to shoot
Never put your finger on the trigger until you’re ready to shoot
Did Binger personally inspect that AR-15? We may never know. Be we do know that he aimed it at living human beings with his finger squarely on the trigger.

Binger is too stupid and/or ignorant to be anywhere around firearms, and judging by his questionable (at best) courtroom antics, he probably shouldn’t be allowed to practice law, either.

Mariah Carey and MickeyD's. I don't think so.

Mariah Carey, McDonald’s team up to launch ‘free’ 12 day ‘Mariah Menu’ to celebrate Christmas

Wishing you had something to eat while listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” on an endless loop in every store? Well now you can, thanks to “The Mariah Menu” at McDonald’s.

The Christmas promo by McDonald’s features 12 days of deals, set to begin on December 13th. The deals include some giveaways with purchases, including everything from the iconic McDonald’s cheeseburger to soft-baked chocolate chip cookies are part of the giveaways.

Just one of the reasons I don't care to dine at Methodist Churches. Unlike Lutherans they don't know how to make coffee.

KOKOMO, IN—According to sources, local church deacon Bill Billings arrived at 3rd Bible Church early this morning to unlock the doors and make the coffee for the morning fellowship hour. As is his custom, he carefully measured out half a teaspoon of coffee grounds to make a giant vat of coffee.

"This is the way we've always done it," he said to reporters who asked whether he should add a little more grounds to the machine. "The little card taped to the wall has the instructions written clearly. A half teaspoon does the trick."

Sources inside the church claim that the congregation has been using the same tub of Maxwell House coffee since 1997 when it was purchased by Church Secretary Ethel Rutherford, who is now dead.


Lighten up.

Unlike the deceased Sen. John McCain, deceased look alike Sen. John Thune and the Turtle, Sen. Mitch McConnell: Steve Bannon is a fighter and not some rollover GOPe p*$$y.

Washington, D.C. – A defiant Stephen K. Bannon emerged from the D.C. federal courthouse this afternoon promising to deliver Joe Biden, Merrick Garland, and Nancy Pelosi the “misdemeanor from hell” following his indictment on two counts related to an unconstitutional contempt of Congress charge.


A chilling message? Wasn't that the goal of Totalitarian regimes throughout the ages? Frighten and coerce human behavior?

Lame duck lawmaker Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said Friday that he hopes Stephen Bannon’s indictment for failing to comply with a Jan 6th committee subpoena sends a “chilling message.”

“It sends a really important message to future invited witnesses, future folks that are subpoenaed. You cannot ignore Congress. … I hope it sends a chilling message,” Kinzinger said while on CNN.

Of course the Liverpool bomber's motive was unclear. Downright unfathomable.

A TERRORIST who took a taxi to a hospital carrying a homemade bomb was "from the Middle East and was unknown to MI5".

Armed police swooped on Liverpool Women's Hospital just before 11am yesterday after the blast in a car park.

Well if the suspected terrorist converted to Christianity, he failed.

Liverpool bomb suspect 'converted to Christianity at cathedral he wanted to attack'
Emad Al Swealmeen, 32, who died when an improvised explosive device went off at just before 11am on Remembrance Sunday, reportedly came to the UK from Iraq

This is the first picture of the man suspected of detonating a bomb outside a hospital in Liverpool on Remembrance Sunday.

Emad Al Swealmeen, 32, died when an improvised explosive device went off in a taxi at just before 11am, police believe.

He was named by the authorities on Monday - as it emerged he may have converted to Christianity after arriving in Britain.

Miscalculation? Some sort of escalation? If our armed forces are going to be in the area of Iran Then clarify the situation and they can miscalculate with 72 overweight zit-faced virgins.

The US Department of Defense claims that, on November 11, an Iranian helicopter flew some 25 yards (23 meters) from USS Essex's port (left) side and flew "as low as about 10 feet [(3 meters)] off the surface of the ocean." The chopper is said to have circled the ship three times before departing.
A potentially hazardous situation between Iran and the US was avoided in the Gulf of Oman last Thursday, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby declared in a Monday briefing.

Instead of robbing your students of any privacy or dignity, maybe you should have installed sensitive smoke detectors in the rest rooms. No one is stopping you from using Police Liaison Officers and K9s from checking lockers.

school decided to remove restroom doors in order to get a grip on drug use and other "significant behavioral events" that have already occurred this year, according to a report.

Christina Steele Hantgin, the principal at Austin ISD’s Travis Early College High School, sent a letter to parents explaining her decision while admitting that she could have done a better job communicating her plans, according to CBS Austin.

She said in the letter obtained by the station that there have been behavioral events and "conduct violations" that have occurred inside these restrooms, including about 90% of drug offenses. She said there have been no incidents since taking down these doors. (No stall can be viewed from the hallway outside, another report said.)

Oh that makes all the difference in the world.

A sad story from Ecuador. While they were being rehabilitated and turning their lives around. They lost their lives.

QUITO, Ecuador — A prolonged gun battle between rival gangs inside Ecuador's largest prison early Saturday left at least 68 inmates dead in the latest violence to hit the Litoral Penitentiary, which recently saw the country's worst prison bloodbath.

The fighting lasted for almost eight hours in the lockup in the coastal city of Guayaquil and authorities attributed the fighting to prison gangs linked to international drug cartels. Videos circulating on social media showed bodies, some burned, lying on the ground inside the prison.

Inmates "tried to dynamite a wall to get into pavilion 2 to carry out a massacre. They also burned mattresses to try to to drown (their rivals) in smoke," said Gov. Pablo Arosemena of Guayas province where Guayaquil is located.

Perhaps if they weren't so unconventional and flaky they wouldn't have this issue. HARD TIMES ‘Great Sex Depression’ in US sees record number of young Americans not having sex, study finds

The data reveals young people are having less sex and are less likely to cohabitate with partners, and women are increasingly going without sex for years.

In one finding, the report's authors note that sexlessness is more likely among single people living alone, not those who are married or living with a partner.

Only five percent of married people surveyed reported they've gone without sex this year.

However, fewer adults are living with their partners: the number of adults in live-in relationships has dropped from 40% to 32% since 2011.

Married couples are more likely to be sexually active, but as Millennial and Gen Z Americans delay marriage, the number of sexless individuals grows

British singer, actress, and composer Petula Clark, who had the 1961 UK No.1 single 'Sailor', and the 1967 UK No.1 single 'This Is My Song', plus over 15 other UK Top 40 singles. She scored the 1965 US No.1 'Downtown', becoming the first UK female singer to score a No.1 single in the US. In America, Clark was dubbed "the First Lady of the British Invasion". via thisdayinmusic.com

On this day: 15 Nov 2016
American jazz and blues pianist, singer, and songwriter Mose Allison died aged 89. He became notable for playing a unique mix of blues and modern jazz. His music influenced many blues and rock artists, including Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Tom Waits, the Yardbirds, John Mayall, J. J. Cale, the Who (who made ‘Young Man Blues’ a staple of their live performances and is featured on their Live At Leeds album). via thisdayinmusic.com

If it sounds too good to be true, that's because it is. Genius Award Winner.


A Michigan woman pleaded guilty Friday to trying to hire someone to kill her husband last year through what turned out to be a fake murder-for-hire website called "Rent-A-Hitman," according to reports.

Wendy Lynn Wein, 52, of South Rockford, completed a service request on the site last year saying she wanted her ex-husband dead because he stole money from her and she preferred "not going to jail," according to FOX 2 Detroit and Rolling Stone magazine.

The owner of the fake website immediately contacted state police, who sent an undercover detective posing as a hitman to meet with Wein, FOX 2 reported.

If you have a loved one who suffers from Parkinson's Disease you understand how devastating it is. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

In an unexpected discovery, Georgetown University Medical Center researchers have identified what appears to be a significant vascular defect in patients with moderately severe Parkinson's disease. The finding could help explain an earlier outcome of the same study, in which the drug nilotinib was able to halt motor and non-motor (cognition and quality of life) decline in the long term.


The researchers say their finding, detailed in a study published November 12, 2021, in Neurology Genetics, suggests that blood vessel walls called the blood brain barrier, which normally act as a crucial filter to protect the brain against toxins as well as allow passage of nutrients to nourish it, doesn't work correctly in some Parkinson's patients: It prohibits toxins from leaving the brain and inhibits nutrients such as glucose from entering. Perhaps even more damaging, the dysfunctional barrier allows inflammatory cells and molecules from the body to enter and damage the brain.

43 The sad thing is, when a cop pulls you over for expired tags, he'll shout at you to put your hands out of the window. He'll tell you not to move, to keep your hands where he can see and if you happen to flinch the wrong way, he'll shoot you full of holes. And the government will claim you should have complied.

But if a child rapist shouts "I'm gonna kill you" and goes for your gun, the government will claim the child rapist is not a real threat and you shouldn't defend yourself.

Juxtapose the government position on Kyle Rittenhouse versus the cop that murdered Daniel Shaver. Shaver's murderer cop never served a day and got reinstated to the force just long enough to get a $2500 a month pension. For murdering a guy laying down crying in fear, that's the penalty.

62 The US Department of Defense claims that, on November 11, an Iranian helicopter flew some 25 yards (23 meters) from USS Essex's port (left) side and flew "as low as about 10 feet [(3 meters)] off the surface of the ocean." The chopper is said to have circled the ship three times before departing. How close is close enough to cause the Skipper to act to defend his ship? Good God man - what have we become?

That chain's gonna wrap to center at the rotor mast, and just tear the livin' shit outta the swashplate and pitch links, all in about 1/500th second. Nary a shot fired, not even a targeting radar emitting so much as a single photon.

Prosecutors tried to railroad a kid with dummied evidence, 'witnesses' that had no clue, were useless as the prosecution hadn't done a sit-down, chit-shat, before trial to get their stories aligned. Was very pleased that the 12 of us in the juror box all saw right through it. Do the duty. It could be anyone that they bring to trial. Posted by: Robert17 at November 15, 2021 10:15 PM (tpXPJ)

I had the same experience. Young black man (Navy veteran) driving a pimped up car at night in the wrong neighborhood ON HIS WAY HOME FROM WORK, was pulled over by constable's deputy at the end of his shift who had written no tickets, after illegal search the deputy found a baggie with a small amount of weed, and the young man was arrested. Lost his job. He insisted on going to trial rather than pleading to possession (would have been deferred sentence, probably with a few months' probation). It took us about 10 minutes of deliberation to find him not guilty. The judge afterward, in the jury room, told us we reached the right result.

The Essex is a small LHD - landing helicopter dock - a little bit bigger than the LPD - Landing Platform Dock - that I was on - it is equipped with the Phalanx anti-air gun that is quite capable of shooting this aircraft down. It should have been engaged as that is what it was designed for.

142 The US Department of Defense claims that, on November 11, an Iranian helicopter flew some 25 yards (23 meters) from USS Essex's port (left) side and flew "as low as about 10 feet [(3 meters)] off the surface of the ocean." The chopper is said to have circled the ship three times before departing.

How close is close enough to cause the Skipper to act to defend his ship? Good God man - what have we become?

If they shot it out of the sky, it would hit the drink before its pilot could get a radio message off that they were under fire.

"Hello Iran? U.S. Navy here. We saw one of your choppers go down. Jesus nut came off, the rotor blades flew off, and it all went in the drink about 6 miles east of our position."

The OOD would have had this contact on radar, would have requested vampire or not from the CIO, who also most likely was in CIC at the time. A release of their SM1 or Phalanx system would have been requested from the CIO (he has the coordinates) who is in direct contact with the CO. Given the go, the OOD would have directed WEPs to act on the CIO's directed coordinates and the fucking turkey would have fallen...but the CO blocked the CIO from given the green and the vampire was allowed to fly by...where that order to stand down falls entirely upon the CO or/and the Comdesron Commander is my guess..

Posted by: tcn in AK, Hail to the Thief at November 15, 2021 10:34 PM (r9FP4)

I had it when I was ten at a friends house. I guess it is odd I remember that. I can't say the first time I had ice cream or any other desert. I just always liked the stuff for some reason. The tapioca are these little pearls. The pudding is like boba teas, but with pudding.

Posted by: Boswell at November 15, 2021 10:35 PM (5iUNf)

BTW most likely...no wait, absolutely sure that the CO was on deck based upon standard call orders from the OOD and coordinating fire or issuing stand down from the deck that time the target fly within WEPs circle of engagement.

Sad to think that is the way it went down - but more than likely the CO got those orders to not engage from his Comdesron.

247 In today's Morning Rant, OregonMuse said:


Just as the jury was being led out, the prosecution said, "oh, by the the way, in addition to 'A' and 'B' I want you to also consider charges 'C, 'D', 'E', 'F', and 'G' as well." I was shocked that nobody protested what seemed to me to be an obviously sleazy end run around due process. Because if anyone is charged with a crime, they ought to be allowed to rebut the charge, or at least defend themselves. But this tactic short-circuits any possible defense.


I've been on a grand jury in DC twice, and there's a wrinkle to this in DC. As a creature of the federal government, the Fifth Amendment injunction that "No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury" applies. For whatever reason, this clause has not been incorporated against the states like most of the rest of the Bill of Rights, so Florida and Wisconsin can allow what OregonMuse described.

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at November 15, 2021 10:49 PM (kBuGL)

249 Anyhoo, we also encountered lesser includeds in some of our cases. The thing is, because of the requirement for an indictment, the law was written so that that felony A would require that the prosecution prove a, b, c, and d, while the lesser included B would require that the prosecution prove a, b, and c. If we indicted on felony A, we wouldn't have to vote on felony B on the same facts, and the trial jury could then choose to convict on A or on B; however, if we only indicted on felony B, the trial jury could only convict on B and couldn't consider A. That notion of lesser included seems somewhat sensible.

Gren Zavi tells us that mankind has violated the laws of nature by reproducing more than any other species. He tells us that mankind's population growth must be managed, because humankind must learn to inhabit the universe in harmony with nature. He tells us that the death of four billion people was merely expiation for our past sins against nature."

297 If they're all out of presidential-scented candles, that's next on the list.

You can combine the trans fiction with a Fauci votive candle.

Ego, my name is Fauci:

He's not going anywhere.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's top infectious disease expert who's provided reassurance to many Americans during the pandemic, says he won't quit until the country gets past COVID-19.

"I'm the head of an institute that actually played the major role in the development of the vaccines that have saved now millions of lives from COVID-19," he told CBS' "Face the Nation" in an interview that aired Sunday. "I'm the director of the institute that has now been very important in the basic research in leading to the drugs that will now have an important impact in the treatment of COVID-19. That's what I do.

"So, I'm going to keep doing that until this COVID-19 outbreak is in the rearview mirror, regardless of what anybody says about me, or wants to lie and create crazy fabrications because of political motivations," concluded Fauci, the chief White House medical adviser and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

304 "What documents does Trump not want the Jan. 6 House panel to see?" as the USA Today's Breathless headline goes tonight...well, let me see, according to the USA report it might be:

"Of the 763 pages in which Trump asserted privilege, 629 are talking points prepared for the press secretary and 43 include presidential schedules, appointments, activity logs, call logs, among other documents, according to the filing from the National Archives."

Yeah, so...there it is. Left unanswered is why the Jan 6th House Committee wants to see them. That reason is not up to scrutiny, and one might guess that it is just because they wish to edit those talking points and present them to the public as favorable to Democrats. In other words, its all for political purposes.

344 I'm getting the idea of a building backlash and even the solidarity of the medical community in masks, hand sanitizer, and other such Covid theater is wearing thin at least in this particular red area. Due to close family members requiring medical attention of advance age; I have been around both hospitals, clinics, nursing home, rehab hospital, etc. Hand sanitizer stations sit unused and lonely, mask protocols are haphazard, checkin in is now prefunctory with temperature stations, and so on.

In my case, I had Covid early this year and it took awhile to feel better. Most people around where I am seem to be recognizing that natural immunity suffices now. Have only ran into one Covid Karen and even the cardiology docs appear less than enthusiastic about the need for booster shots for my elderly charges despite both charges wanting them for some damn fool reason.

Far too many people of a certain age spend their time watching those damn TV commercials to get vaxxed and believe that they are fact. I can't stand to have a TV on when I am not watching entertainment only. Haven't got news that way about 15-20 years now.

374 4 conditions need to be present to create Mass-Formation

1) There needs to a lot of socially isolated people or people who experience a lack of social bond 2) People who experience a lack of 'sense making'. Unable to come to sensible conclusions. 3) There is a lot of Free-Floating Anxiety (FFA). Free-Floating because there's nothing to connect their anxiety to. No focal point. Unable to identify what's causing and so no way to deal with it. 4) There's also a lot of Free-Floating Psychological-Discontent. People may experience their daily lives as lacking any purpose or meaning

Free-Floating Anxiety is the most painful psychological phenomena to experience and leads to panic attacks. In this state of unfocused anxiety the mind tries to connect it's anxiety to something, an "Object of Anxiety". The next piece of the puzzled is a strategy to deal with this Object of Anxiety.

So when these pre-conditions are highly present within a population and then the media provide a narrative which indicates a focal-point for this anxiety while at the same time describing a strategy to deal with this object of anxiety then all the anxiety connects to this object of anxiety.

375 If a large segment of people are willing to follow this strategy to deal with this object of anxiety no matter the cost, then in a second step people start a collective & heroic battle with this Object of Anxiety and in that way a new kind of social bond emerges & with that a new kind of "sense making" or purpose. Suddenly life is all directed towards battling this Object of Anxiety. This creates new sense of connectedness with others in the Mass-Formation.

378 351 Sharon,
Someone made the point somewheres around here that doctors used to be problem solvers and more or less in started in small practices focused on care. Now, since Obamacare consolidated the industry, we get doctors focused on checklists. Not quite true on specialists still, but I have seen enough of them due to medical issues over the years on a repeated basis to avoid or drop the checklist types. Checklist types like vaxxes for some reason, perhaps compensation?

Fortunately one elderly relative with oncoming dementia issues just changed docs due to a retirement to a former ER (still moonlights there) doctor as her primary care. He told her to cool her jets on the booster as she is really homebound and at small risk.

Don't really matter today.

So he plugs in all my data( I exercise, healthy diet, low blood pressure etc) and expects he will come up with a covincing statistic. Instead there is only a 3% difference in risk, 14% to 10%.

419 Sharon, you went off the script. If you can break through the scripted response, some docs will surprise you.

Had some issues advocating for another elderly relative as the nephrologist wanted to simply blame the hospitalization on acute kidney injury instead of what caused it. I found some bloodwork for the patient just before the big Covid lockdown that had been overlooked.

The gent actually had MGUS (precursor to amylodosis and myeloma) and a bad enough case that the resident hematologist then got involved with some biopsies and we are investigating treatments for it along with the alleged idiopathic neuropathy that had been plaguing him for years prior. So fingers crossed, we probably may have found the reason for his kidney injury. The cardiologist kept prescribing lasix which got the gent's electrolytes out of balance and he had a non-diagnosed sinus infection was throwing a lot of deformed white blood cells at it which stopped up the kidneys. Went from normal bloodwork in one month to requiring hospitalization as the gent did not know when and where he was.

438 Whig, had my annual checkup today with a new doctor. One of the hazards of being a little over 29 is that doctors tend to retire.
-------

My Doc of 20+ years retired when O'care came in. I do not blame him. Problem is, by then, we were actual first-name acquaintances. Half of the rare visits were spent chewing the fat about people we both know, and interests we both have. If I had a complaint, he *listened*... not just diagnostically, but to *me*.

The new Doc, AKA 'Doogie Howser' is probably competent, but hears selectively. It's as though he is running through diagnoses and trying to fit one to the patient. I often feel that I should pat him on his head and say, 'You're not listening'.

To him, I'm just another complaining old guy.

440 Good show. Statins have lowered my bad but not raised the good. Haven't found a way to do it.

Posted by: Braenyard

If you want to try a cheap way to raise HDL (good cholestrol), Niacin supplements can do it but get the allegedly non flushing type.

Start low with the supplements and consult a doctor before doing it but it will raise your HDL. The risk is that you take too much and flush which is unpleasant and not life threatening. I did that while on statins and got a good ole full on flushing incident. Feels like a bad sunburn and lasts about 20-30 minutes or so. Food high in Niacin are a better bet.

442 296 Do they pay you to be on a Grand Jury?

My job continued to pay my salary while I was on jury duty, so I wasn't paid anything. The daily payment for people who weren't being paid by their job was something like $30/day, which violated the federal minimum wage, much less the inflated DC minimum wage. (Once again, laws for thee and not for me.) There was also a travel "reimbursement" that was something like $3/day. I did receive those checks, but didn't cash them because I was worried I'd have to keep receipts for the IRS if I did.

Well, from what she is saying she is supposed to be an android. That covers a lot of sins.

Honestly, the problem I have is that they cannot seem to portray an adult man-woman relationship of any kind in a modern entertainment property at all. Not anything with true emotion whatsoever.

I think it is one reason modern media is so passionless and sterile when it comes down to it. Romance/lust/desire launched a thousand ships and every dude who read Homer wondered what Helen looked like (and how her rack rated.) They did not argue that it 'could' not happen- they understood on a fundamental level that it was something that could happen.

Calling a 14th AF pilot a Flying Tiger if there were any of the original AVG still alive would start a fight.

The 14th AF Association started to call themselves Flying Tigers in the 1960s since Chenault was their commander. But the truth is, all three pursuit squadrons of the AVG were disbanded and on 4 July 1942 the three fighter squadrons of the 23rd FG of the China Air Task Force stood up with less than ten pilots of the original AVG in their ranks.

462 Posted by: Mike Hammer, To him, I'm just another complaining old guy.

Mike, I have come to the conclusion that a lot of docs nowadays dismiss patients that do not conform to the script.

I had to fight over two weeks to get doctors to consider something other than the old guy overdosed on lasix even when a prior ignored bloodtest before the shutdown indicated something going on. They ignored his sinus infection despite cat and mri imaging of the head and the Radiologist report showed both sinus blocked when he was hospitalized and then one sinus blocked throughout the rest of his stay. The hospital despite my pleading daily never sent an ENT to consult. Took him out to an ENT from the rival hospital system and used that other hospital's imaging to instantly figure out it was an untreated sinus infection. Treated it and the old gent went back to himself within a week. Turns out he could not tolerate his CPAP with the sinus infection so could not sleep.

On the mend now in a rehab skilled nursing facility.

464 BTW, in DC, serving on a local grand jury (the federal grand jury was an entirely different beast) was a commitment. First, understand that there's no voir dire, so once you've been selected, you're going to serve. You might be able to make a case for deferral, but that just means that you serve a few months later. Second, understand that the grand jury doesn't hear just one case; on my first grand jury, we conducted business on over 200 cases. You either served for 3 days/week for 8 weeks or 5 days/week for 5 weeks, with at least 2 recall days after the main service to wrap up business. (The "at least" there is important; on my second stint, we had a third recall day because the court decided our jury needed to handle a particular case that couldn't be handled on the previous recalls.)

465 I'm guessing we'll see lots of terrorist "convert to christianity" for cover. I know in the Muslim religion you're allowed to lie if it's for the greater good of following their teachings, so i wouldn't be surprised if they can go through the conversion process, while essentially crossing their fingers, and it would still be kosher with Islam. If they essentially think Christianity is a fake religion there isn't much of a breaking of rules to then pretend to join them.

472 Could be that you don't absorb niacin very well or some other genetic issue. You could try more eggs as egg yolks are high in HDL regardless of what paid research by cereal companies said.

However, I do think that inflammation is going to turn out to be a big predictor of future health rather than specifically cholesterol levels.

Apparently, Insty has a link tonight where they found that Parkinsons was affected by some vascular damage in the brain that permitted inflammatory proteins to cross the blood brain barrier. They might find more examples if they look where a leaky gut or a leaky blood brain barrier can result in some bad problems.

I have actually a good relationship with the physician's assistant that worked under my previous PCP for years and he now has a new doc 'supervising' him.

He takes time, listens, and coordinates care with my other specialists. Does the routine stuff that I need and I can get an appt. for issues that require antibiotics like a sinus infection. He has been in the area for awhile and can give me reference to other docs such as a good urologist if needed.

You can also talk to a specialist and ask them (if they have been practicing for awhile) who might be a good PCP.

496 As for modern "romance", part of the problem is that the left has convinced women that they shouldn't try to make a man happy. They've promoted a selfish, money- and status-obsessed lifestyle and denigrated having a family. And they've medicated women out the wazoo - antidepressants and BC, both of which frequently reduce libido (which, and I shouldn't have to point this out, will make you unhappy. Sex is very important. Being asexual should be considered a sign of physiological or psychological issues, not an orientation). So you have millions of bitter, miserable women who hate men. How are you going to write a romance about and for those women?

503 Mrs. Peel, if you have a cardiologist, ask them.

They are bearing the brunt of seeing people with post Covid and post vaxx related problems right now. At the hospital where I have been tending sick relatives, the Cardiac wing is totally full and there is a shortage of heart monitors including a patient waiting for heart surgery. Large new hospital too.

Believe me, I totally understand, both about VA issues and also about medical care right now. What I do say is that if you do have cancer, at least some places may not require a jab simply because of the risk factor if you are receiving immuno suppressives. Dunno if you have already have Covid but natural immunity evidence from prior infection is starting to get traction at the national level instead of shots.

If your house member is a turd regarding local office staffing then go to either Senator's staff.

Your call to Tricare versus a congressional staffer--well the processors of claims know where the money comes from.

535 529 Romeo13, not necessarily, Feinstein used to be on some Vet committees, try calling her local staff. Even if your congress critter is a dem, to some degree they are running scared due to the jungle primary.

BTW, the caseworker normally do not care whether or not you vote blue or red (at least in the recent near past) but every satisfied case results usually in more votes for the pol that helped them. Averages about 5 percent boost overall for votes for a congress critter with good caseworkers. Al D'Amato survived in NY for a long time because of excellent constituent service. Lindsay Graham has done likewise as he inherited Strom's staff that did the same boost for Strom.

541 ON coof tests, antibody test is relatively easy and will tell if you were exposed to it (or had the vaxx) in the relatively recent past. A more specific test involves the memory cells. The FDA has approved a T-Cell test for Covid infection in March of this year. B cell tests could also do that but unaware of an FDA approved test which could make insurance coverage of such test dicey.

Both T and B cells are involved with long term resistance against covid rather than simply antibodies.

At least you broke into a relative's house. It would have been really awkward if the house was owned by complete strangers. That is pretty funny story, how does one paint a few hundred square feet and not notice such things as the paint is wrong. But it does.

584 The upstairs has all of the original old trim that had been painted several times and needed to be stripped. That was not a fun job.

585 I look at that wall in that photo up top and my first thought is "entropy": that retaining wall is going to break apart and fall forward and all its parts will be returned to nature.

586 Hmm, my 1st thought was 'what a cool bridge.' Great workmanship.

587 I guess it is more of a retaining wall

589 That top picture made me think of Robert Frost's poem "The Road Less Traveled" illustrated by Frank Frazetta.

592 I know I don't comment here often, at the least to thank you all for making this place special for me, but Petula Clark compelled me to. Well not really, it was MH's blurb about here that did it. Thanks for that MH. I never realized just how special she is. You didn't mention her signature song Downtown, which I couldn't recall but I felt it was missing so I looked it up. Lo and behold in the search, I also found out that she had hit singles in German, French, Italian, and Spanish. Not her English songs being hits in those countries but she sang them in those languages. Amazing, she actually went to the 'trouble' to do that for fans in those countries, and while I haven't followed through, I suspect she actually knew the languages.

Again, thanks for instigating me to learn that about Petula Clark, for causing me to listen to Downtown and YT, and most of all thanks for brightening my day, every day.

Here's Petula singing Downtown in German:

593 I have the dress uniform from a WWII 14th AF flying tiger turned hump pilot who became a test pilot after the war. It's pretty cool, has bullion patches.

Wow, that's a lot of patches.

594 I am amazed by Ohikhobo's remedy. I Have had herpes for over 6 years with frequent outbreaks. Sometimes I average 2-3 times per month. Before one breakout could end, the next would begin. Nothing has helped me. I came online in search for a possible way to see how I can fight this virus so I found Ohikhobo here online after seeing a lot of testimonies of how he cured herpes and other diseases with natural herbs so I decided to give it a try I only took his remedy for two weeks and I was completely cured. I recommend Ohikhobo's remedy to anyone suffering from herpes that wants to be completely cured too.
