Frau - re your post on the last thread on Prager v Google.
Surely Google's reticence is because the legal arguments proffered to defend it (that it is fully entitled to censor conservatives) are politically damaging, no?

My main use for the NFL was as background noise when taking a nap Sunday afternoon.

Since Peyton Manning retired and we got Andrew Noluck, who has been out all season with an injury, the Colts are doing terribly and I find I don't care. At all.

In college ball, I went to the Indianapolis branch of IU which of course had no football team. (The satellite campuses act as their own mini-universities so you aren't very connected to the main campus.) Big Ten football is usually average to mediocre, so I never got interested in college ball, either.

Look how many words I wrote to say "don't care." Maybe I could write for ESPN! :-)

anonamon @ 1:30...the Maine media is covering GHWB's butt pinching because they live here all summer and several Maine women have come forward. One of his accusers thought she'd let it go,because maybe he has become a dirty old man,but she decided to say something because she wanted to show her daughter that it doesn't matter the degree of assault,women can't be silent. I agree,because in GHWB's case,he was a butt pincher before he was in a wheelchair. He probably shouldn't be doing photo ops with women standing next to him.

Do you think Mueller would have fired on Manafort had Manafort drawn a weapon against the invaders?

Did anyone in the Lyin' Swine Media ask about Manafort's rights as they covered the aftermath of the melee? You know, was there a search warrant? Did we get to see copies of one if in fact there was one? Or are we to assume the all-powerful "Special Counsel" always dots his t's and crosses his eyes?

OFF TOPIC: Kevlar Kid Health Update:: Scroll on By

Met with the neurosurgeon who performed the spinal operation to rid me of a strep infection to the fourth thoracic vertebrae on August 2 of this year.

Good news all the way around. Images showed that the nexus point of the infection, the vertebrae itself, is completely cleared up.

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being most severe, the debriding that occurred to remove abscess that had soaked into bone was a 6. Although he didn't give me a tolerance number as to how much bone matter was removed, the surgeon said it was significant enough to consider follow-up surgery to reinforce the spine.

But there is significant progress showing regeneration of bone matter in those areas.

Surgeon said that had my musculature been light the amount of pain would have been far less than what I have been experiencing. They had to widen the initial incision in order to effectively move muscle out of the way to work on the affected areas 360 degrees around the vertebrae. There is rib attachment to this particular vertebrae.

I've been cleared without restrictions on all physical activities and exercise within reason for a man of my age. He said heavy lifting is still a no no until February's 6 month mark but that I could begin light weight training to begin regaining muscle mass.

I've lost 60 more pounds since July 29 and am just 25 pounds above my fighting weight of 155.

We're starting the oxycodone weaning on November 1. Shouldn't be too hard to get all off of it. Down to 40 mg daily now. Was near 200 mg at the height of the storm.

Surgeon was clear that they weren't sure about my ability to walk being affected after surgery. He'd advised us after surgery that i could lose it. And that the first 90 days after the operation was the critical window. They were confident after my 45 day consult that I was going to be okay. Now after 90 days they are sure that I'll be walking when I'm 110. ;)

All good. One thing I'm very thankful for besides all of the kind thoughts and prayers from this bunch here on JOM, is the recommendation to take it easy and to act my age during the recovery.

It was sound advice. My stubborn character pushed the envelope enough as it was. But to settle down and refocus my eyes on just exactly who I was seeing in the mirror was a good lesson. Not 18 anymore. Not a bad thing either. More consistency and care for doing the little things right and not leaving any loose ends.

This was a total ambush. Surgeon said it was real bad luck to have strep attack my spine. It's not a common occurrence among adults and when it does happen it usually doesn't require surgery. That in my case the infection incubated and concentrated itself for over a year and showed no symptoms--- he said it was downright spooky. They'd never seen anything like this.

On the other hand, my ayurvedic/Columbia MD doctor who reversed the diabetic complex 18 months ago theorized that I had a severe blockage of energy flow through my chakras. LOL How the hell do you like that?!?!?!

Eastern medicine meets Western medicine.

At any rate, looks like I am gonna be around a while.

Jib, on that NPR retired CEO's book about The Deplorables:

Nice folks, wrongly perceived but not as worldly or intellectual as we are but they know how to shoot a gun, fix a flat tire and fly a flag.

I think that pretty much sums it up.

My dad made sure I knew how to change a tire before I got my driver's license--we changed two in our driveway---and I break my fellow citizens down as to the people who owned a flag before 9/11, and those who had to go buy one.
But I only first shot anything beyond a BB gun five years ago.

I went over and took a look at the Plant Paradox list of foods, both yes and no. Here it is for anyone interested:

http://gundrymd.com/plant-paradox-shopping-list/

My daughter is dropping sugar from her diet, so has purchased non-sugar bread and is eating eggs only for breakfast. I am afraid if I tell her no beans or potatoes she will go into a decline.

I am interested in this diet, however, because I think it will help with my arthritis and dry skin. I am also interested in preventing diabetes, which seems to run in my family. The only drawback is that a lot of the approved groups seem to be more expensive.

narciso

At the tail end of a long thread ostensibly about last name's game, the veteran prosecutors clears up some of the category error in some of the media accounts. Too bad there isn't an organization whose job is to do just that.

sbw

After having read Plant Paradox, and modestly changing my food regimen, I have passed out three other copies to people who might use it:

A Nurse practitioner watching her food intake.
A very senior lady unable to leave her home because of gastric problems.
A ciliac patient with joint pain and weight gain.

Have pointed others to it.

All are very grateful for the pointer, as am I.

rse

KK-I know you can get off the oxycodone at that level. I have told the story tht most pain meds don't work on me and docs will be telling me I must be lying except I'm not. I was on that same 200 mg dose with two of the 80s I think and then breakthrough pain. Doc had already written script for next month that I physically had when she decided maybe I was conning her to get pain meds.

I was so offended that I still had the pain and wasn't lying or abusing anything that I quit taking it cold turkey. Hubby is out of town on business. I didn't quite appreciate that the narcotic not helping with the pain was still going to make me sick to quit taking it cold turkey. By the time that physical withdrawal started I was so mad I told my then 8 year old son he and his sisters could watch as much tv as they wanted that day. That was unusual and told them I needed to be left alone.

rse

I too have read the gundry book and am slowly modifying the diets for me, red, and hubby. It helps that I still have little appetite.

I left out the part where I found the old oxycodone script I had never filled even while I was so sick because it hurt my feelings that I both hurt and was not trusted. When I sold the Lexus 470 I drove for 17 years two years ago and cleaned it out, it was in the middle area between seats where I stored things.

I thought about keeping it as proof that I wasn't kidding. No one should be in a position where they will stop breathing if they get more pain meds or have a stroke if they don't just because this characteristic of about 8% of the population is not better known.

Glad to see the Dorkeyes had two weeks to put their game faces on.

Miss M, for me it was grains (esp brown rice or pasta) with every meal, and lots of chips for snacks. I haven't had any beans or potatoes since I started the Plant Paradox thing, but I've had rice since. (Now my cupboard has no grain). As far as the expensive stuff, I can't get it here (except walnuts). I find my grocery basket is almost all fresh produce with a bit of chicken, and a steak once a month. There is another store nearby that has good fish per a friend, but I haven't tried it yet. I spend less on groceries now.

Now that Amazon has Whole Foods, it seems to me that the plant paradox shopping list is tailor made for them. In fact, I am a little suspicious that A/WF may have paid Grundy to write the book:)

Kevlar Kid

Ya, not too worried to come off the oxy at this level. I went 36 hours without any pain medication to get a bead on the pain level sans oxy. It's definitely less pain than during week 1 post op.

Last week's pain level was a 5. Enough pain to make it more than a little difficult to carry on a conversation with other human beings. 40-50mg makes it possible to sleep through the night (critical to recovery) and to be able to work.

Withdrawal symptoms by the 36th hour felt like a really bad flu.

So coming off by the end of next month will be determined by pain level.

If i get down to level 3 pain (which is what the pain level was on 70 mg of oxy) i'll just go off 100% and take meng da herbs to eliminate the flu symptoms of withdrawal.

I'll supplement the weaning effort with green juice fasts every other day this month.

Good support for the body and lessens withdrawal symptoms. Micronutrients and chloryphyll work their magic.

It was how I came off six years of vicodin for diabetic nerve pain in the feet and hands during the recovery program in Arizona.. cold turkey in six days.... and no symptoms... the pain was a bitch but the 18 months of raw vegan diet has all but quelled the nerve pain.

Weird thing about the spinal surgery, a gift you might say.... the numbness in my feet is G-O-N gon gon gon after 15 years.... it was gone when I woke up from surgery.

Hallelujah.

Circuits are being restored, people. Praise God, surgery and magnesium supplementation.

For all you Plant Paradox peeps--- remember to supplement because NONE of those good foods have any magnesium in them--- it's depleted from the soil.

And if one is fond of adult beverages don't forget to supp the vitamin B and D3. Makes an incredible difference in energy level for a non-drinker. For imbibers it makes even more of a difference.

The troops are gettin healthy. I love it!

My problem with the diet as shown is that I cannot get good fish here (we are far from lakes and seacoast) and I really don't like fish, anyway, unless it's breaded and deep fat fried.

Chicken I eat for medicinal purposes, as I raised them when I was a kid and my dad would decide he wanted chicken so he would just go step on one's head, pull the head off, and after it quit flopping around, would pluck it, clean it, and cook it. It's sort of hard to get that memory out of my head, which is why my preferred chicken is Chi-fil-A where it is an anonymous piece breaded and (again) deep fried.

I suppose what I will do first is drop most of the grain products and sugars. I don't think I can do this cold turkey.

If your interested in reading a primary source for nutrition with plenty of scientific debunking of "diet" prescriptions, try "Conscious Eating" by Gabriel Cousens. Dense but well-illustrated and scientifically presented.

------
As for the expense of eating differently I found several things can offset the cost.

1. Meal plan, meal plan, meal plan.

2. Fast periodically. Eat LESS.

3. Support #2

Stop eating at 5pm every day and drink revitalizing liquids for the remainder of the day (water, herbal teas without honey).

Resume food intake at 9am. Limit food consumption to 8 hour window. My food window is 9 to 2pm.

Less time daily digesting food (especially at night and early morning from the "late dinner") lets the liver catch a break--- and one's energy level will gradually escalate.

More energy with less eating---- it does wonder to quell the impulse to eat "to get energy."

Also, less time eating each day gives the body time to redirect enzymes from digestive functions to repair functions to circulatory, nervous, and the regenerative organs.

Fasting 16 to 19 hours a day makes a difference and works wonders.

-Cuts cravings
-Shifts focus on food as entertainment to food as sustenance.

4. Floss the brain.

I was operating on many false premises about food. We each have our own.

Reduce the role of "eating" in one's lifestyle and elevate the role of nutrition.

Support's #2: eat less.

Here were a couple of biggies I had to slay.

I had regrets rooted in self-pity at first.

But when I went down with this spinal deal, I realized what an advantage it was to be in a state of health at 201 lbs versus a "Fat Dumb Happy" state at 367 pounds.

Prolly would not have made it through without the experience of reversing the diabetic complex and learning to eat consciously (not the same as "finding the right diet for me").

Food was celebratory whether there was a celebration or not.

Food was a status symbol.

Gourmet good. Simple was a sign of lack.

For a man in a family line that was just one generation out of poverty this was a big one.

For those who are farther removed from this there is no way to really comprehend the distinction.

It's why affluence can be lethal from a nutritional habits standpoint.

Just a different direction than poverty takes on the matter.

Kevlar Kid,

Those are interesting suggestions, particularly the "food as celebration" aspect. Don't know if I can do that window thing totally, as we have different hours here.

I forget if I told everyone, but my son has moved in with us. He has (FINALLY) broken up with the horrible girlfriend who one would think at his age (late 40's) he could have spotted, but didn't. He is switching careers so is waiting tables now. Tomorrow we will introduce his cat, Edgar, to the 3 dogs. This should be fun.

As far as food, right now this means daughter eats breakfast at 5:30, I eat a bit later, grab a sandwich for lunch (she takes hers) while son sleeps until 9, drinks coffee, then eats at the restaurant when he's working.

I will have to think on this some.

Told my daughter about the Plant Paradox and she said not to bother her until she got totally off sugar. LOL!

I hope they verify that these are the actual records and not a dummy set.

On that NPR "Republican Like Me" book: I haven't looked at it or read about it except what was written here. But it sounds more like a SNL skit than serious endeavor, even if he did discover to his amazement that Repubs aren't secret KKK sympathizers. Did he have any sense of irony, or shame, that someone in his position could be like the guy who wrote Black Like Me? That guy actually did something admirable and courageous, going into a poor black community in the Deep South, living on the street. He likely died as a result. This NPR clown deserves nothing but ridicule IMO.

Federal judge places Fusion GPS bank records under sealed protective order. Will remain confidential.
==================================
So, the PUBLIC won'tn get to see those records, only the Intelligence Committee.

I am underwhelmed by this decision.
