Clarice Feldman

Glad you are on the mend,TM..By all accounts this flu strain is a doozy--Use Purell and sani wipes a lot every time you are out of the house. Be scrupulous about it.

Another great "Pieces', Clarice. TM, maybe baking soda will help. :)

Happy to hear you are on the mend, Mr Maguire.

Regarding Fitzgerald as MSU hired lawyer, looks like he's engaging in a modified limited hangout. I had to look up the term after seeing it used on Instapundit to describe the FBI's withholding most of the Strzok and Page lost texts. We need a Raiders of the Lost Texts adventure.

Good morning, jongerens!

Marvelous encaptulation of where we are and where we (may?) are headed, Clarice.

Went to bed with a big smile on my heart from GUS'S JOM Juke Box last night.

If you read Beestet's link a 7:28 there is a lot of flu avoidance and treatment advice that will be familar to anyone who has read this blog the last year. I do D3, Magnesium, Iodine and Selenium. Now I am thinking about using a large glass of bicarbonate of soda to wash it all down with:)

So far, very lucky to not catch it but have caught a cold earlier in the season. Nothing debilitating but it sucked.

Thanks TM!

Cathy f--condolences, and thanks to you for reminding us to cherish this day; each other.


from Insty:

“It takes time for the economy to recover the costs of excessive regulatory compliance and to redirect capital to productive uses, so the gains seen during Trump’s first year are likely attributable in significant part to the expectations generated by his slashing the red tape. The full impact of the deregulation is still to be felt.”

Wonderful Pieces - as usual, Clarice!

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Glad you are on the mend, Mr. McGuire!

I didn't get a flu shot, but as I understand it, this year's strain is not stopped by it much, maybe 10%.

I posted a map on the last thread saying 11 states had closed schools because of the flu epidemic.

My [;a is avoiding public places as much as possible (not hard when you aren't driving), washing my hands constantly, and taking lots of vitamins.

I still remember getting the swine flu when I was finishing finals while in college. My son was about 5 and had to fend for himself most of the day, because I was as sick as I have ever been. I still remember how much my body ached.

Jack is Back!

As a favor to all who may be tempted to follow Drudge's link to the article in the Slimes about Trump's SOTU speech, just read the first paragraph and you can imagine where the rest of the story is headed:

"President Trump has spent his first year in office breaking every rule of presidential communication, conducting policymaking and diplomacy by Twitter and eschewing the careful, subdued tones of most presidents in favor of no-holds-barred attacks on his adversaries and allies alike."

Unlike Clarice's Pieces, I stopped right there.

Leftists hate war movies:

http://victorygirlsblog.com/leftist-writer-says-patriotic-war-movies-just-masculine-nonsense-video/


However, the good news is that patriotic films about brave men facing long odds are pretty popular among American audiences. I guess it’s because they’re just knuckle-dragging rubes who aren’t fully woke. Or perhaps Americans know that they “sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” And they’re thankful for them.

Isn't there a Jewish prayer "Thank you for not making me a woman, slave, Gentile" ??

Thank you Lord, for not making me a Leftist.
Such a miserable people!

Instapundit links to this bit of inconvenient truth: "... in 1975, leftist Dems went to great lengths to keep Vietnamese refugees (even orphans) out of the United States. The Democrat complaints in 1975 appeared to center on the fact that the refugees were escaping communism, an ideology, analysts say, liberals did not find that objectionable."

Btw, I forgot to mention this yesterday but the latest baby killing billboard I saw, in as black an area as Saint Margaret Sanger would deem appropriate, was "Abortion is a conversation".

In trying to scan previous thread and catch up I saw Senator Lankford's name a couple of times.

I am so disappointed in him. I emailed him several times last summer asking him to support President Trump and demand this Russian probe be axed, a new healthcare initiative, and stand up to Dem's obstruction.

I received email telling me it was disturbing that Russians had interfered in our election and it must be investigated. I WAS FLOORED.

I keep receiving emails from him. Last one was about his immigration scheme. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED in his representation of voters. (Though there are large groups of liberals in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. Wouldn't be surprised if there are several blue counties in next election. Some silly woman went to that "pussy" march last year from our small suburb and the local paper ran a big piece on it applauding her activism -- though, they never mentioned the "pussy" part. Idiots!!)

anonamom,

Thanks for the information. I need to go to the grocery today so will stay far away from people as much as possible.

It can't be avoided as we are low on everything. Will get the ingredients for the immuno-tea while there.

Other than the grocery, I am following rse's "do not leave the house" prescription.

The Infamous Ignatz

The way Trump negotiates with the toddlers in congress like Schumer is the way a parent deals with a petulant child.
Pop says "get ready for bed in a half hour, sonny" whereupon sonny, believing he is participating in a relationship of equals opens negotiations by petitioning for an hour instead.
At which point pop lowers his paper, looks at sonny and says "ok, 15 minutes instead".
By the time sonny-boy has negotiated himself into zero time AND being grounded he might realize he doesn’t really have any power in the relationship, but I'm doubtful Schmucky is as self aware as our hypothetical sonny.

They do it with "awards" too. Leftist groups give a leftist an award & the press write it up as some great thing.

I loaded up on that immune lemonade stuff (used stevia to sweeten it, not honey) before we were locked up in airplanes for a total of 12 hours this past week, and we are not sick (yet).

We also did zinc lozenges when boarding--a favorite preventative/abortant for viruses here.

We REALLY loved the nasal zinc Zicam used to sell, before those stupid people who didn't follow directions snorted it and burned out their olfactory nerves and ruined it for the rest of us. Have some custom made stuff in the fridge, but it doesn't travel.

Same here anonamom about that Zicam spray. The orange lozenges they make seem to be somewhat effective.

The #meetoos are on the rampage with their claims of toxic masculinity.The dean of UC Irvine came out defending snowflakismo yesterday. Remember, UCI is also one of the most anti-Semitic campuses in the country.
Notice the correlation between snowflakismo and hard core Marxism. Revolutionary violence meets butthurt.

And how anyone could portray the Chabadniks as conspirators is beyond me.

As to the phony at the Guggenheim, the art world today is probably the most perverted, evil bunch of bloodsuckers in history. Must have been coincidence, but Charlton Heston was on in The Agony & the Ecstasy last night. Towards the very end, the actor playing Raphael says something along the lines that artists are whore who have to suck up to the rich and powerful to feed their addiction to creating art.

Now we have a subgroup of curators, dealers, and hangers on who determine what is art and what is not, mainly paid for by foundations that are completely removed from the founders original intent. Spending OPM on golden toilets is not, I think, what Peggy Guggenheim had in mind.

A friend of mine was represented by Larry Gagosian back in the early 80's, and noted that Gagosian was Basquiat's heroin connection, trading H for art. That's about the level of the whole bunch.

I'm even tired of SEEING the word "Dreamers". That is a marketing word made up by the Dem party to get amnesty for illegals.
No "Dreamer Law" has ever been passed in Congress.

The Hill - "“DREAM Act,” ... is an acronym for “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act.”
The Democrats have been trying unsuccessfully to get a DREAM Act passed for 16 years."

USA Today - "DREAMers got their name from the DREAM Act, a bill that has been proposed in Congress since 2001, but never passed,"


Even when the Dems had the House, the Senate (with 60 votes so they could win a filibuster) & the Presidency....they did not pass a "Dreamer Law". They could have done ANYTHING they wanted then (2008-2010).

DACA was just an illegal EO signed in 2012. An unconstitutional temporary bandaid measure.

When the word DREAMer is used, that is just playing along with Democrat propaganda.

I don't know why this is such a difficult concept to grasp. Politicians lose perspective by being in office too long; it applies across the board and not just Ryan. Both parties are guilty of it; after Newt engineered the 1994 Republican congressional takeover with the Contract With America, the first bit of backsliding was on term limits by the usual suspects. This is why people don't trust politicians and the skepticism is well founded.

CH, speaking of long time politicians, had Crazy Dennis Bern vindicated in his refusal to sell Cleveland Light to Alan Buchmann's favorite client?

It's not just politicians. It happens in the private sector, too. The difference is that there is external pressure in the private sector, and companies lose customers when their employees and executives lose perspective, and if they don't self-correct, the generally go out of business.

I wonder if it has occurred to the Dems they screwed the perro on this Dreamy tack Barry put them on.
With Reagan they got a fairly general amnesty.
This time, by trying to tug on the heartstrings regarding these tiny little 35 year old tots, they have essentially tossed every other illegal under the bus.
They have made 500-1,500,000 bearded tikes the moral hill upon which they'll die, which leaves all those other things, like chain migration, the lottery and the millions of other non-dreamy illegals already here, that matter far more as bargaining chips they essentially have to give up to rescue the moral dilemma of our times.
I think they're starting to get it but...it's kinda too late at this point.
