Amon, my cardiologist warned me excessive alcohol chocolate or caffeine could all push me into atrial fibrillation; I am the same age as daddy and that’s likely what happened.

I always knew I had an occasional arrhythmia. When I was getting a DOT physical the doctor said he wanted to hook me up for an EKG. I don't remember the specifics but the results didn't alarm him. I'd never heard that about alcohol.

It makes me wonder about that old joke. When you give a drunk coffee you wind up with a wide awake drunk.

He sat on his dead ass for over a year, instead of resubmitting the bill that passed multiple times previously before the Rat vetoed it, then came up with this pile of crap that was barely acceptable before McRINO vetoed it and there was no time to redo it. Hard work cutting that Gas Chamber supplied prime rib.

So far, the best part has been Tim Cook telling President Trump that "every high school graduate should know how to code."

After people getting banned on Twitter for telling reporters to "learn to code" when they were whining about layoffs (because that is what they said about laid-off factory workers and coal miners), I found it hilarious.

This is infuriating.
The country is being run for the benefit of illegals and with contempt for the citizens.

"Including the citizenship question on the 2020 Census is fundamentally counterproductive to the goal of obtaining accurate citizenship data about the public."

Maybe we should invade and repair those countries so they don't need feel a need to leave. Like, what used to happen in the bad old United Fruit days.

DNC is stupid. I once saw a survey where over 10% of Fox viewers are Dems and 30% independents. The 30% is a number you cannot avoid.

I suppose I should defend my 5 AM idea about daddy's comments. We should certainly do something simple now, then wait a bit and ask if they'd like to hear some of what he wrote.

Maybe someone could compile the nice things said about him (leave out our shock), esp. by those who met him, and a list of our names.

I am not so quick to blame Irish dissidents on that. Why would Irish guys put those Irish heart stamps on those packages?

I bet it's Muslims trying to deflect blame. The English are predisposed to blame Irish and go out of their way to excuse Muslims.

"other than tax legislation"

Much of which sunsets in 2026 and that fact has to enter the business and personal financial planners well in advance.

anonamom

I'm no expert, but he clearly had control over his drinking, to never drink at home or in violation of the constraints of his job. More important, I suspect he engaged in a bit of joking hyperbole. For example, on Sunday when he posted here about being "two sheets to the wind" at the bar with me and Peter, we were on our first beer, or maybe not even. Similar to his comments about Jodi, I suspect.

Jimmy k, got that, and have always assumed it. As one could say about me as well. Except the part about Jodi.

My point here people--we are older than we were last year. These electrolyte imbalances and arrhythmias do NOT mean you are a lying in the gutter, drinking out of a brown paper bag alcoholic.
It's intrinsic to the compound that makes drinking so pleasant for so many of us. ETOH.

Take care of yourselves.

https://archive.fo/EPYR9

Can this possibly be legal? Somebody apparently thinks so, because copies of the Mueller report are being offered for sale online right now, and according to the pre-order announcement the release date is going to be “March 26”. As a former attorney, I have no idea how anyone can legally do this. As I have documented previously, when Mueller is done with his report he is supposed to submit it to Attorney General William Barr, and then it will be up to Barr to determine how much of the report, if any, will be made available to the public. I suppose that it is possible that Barr has already agreed to release the full report to the public at the end of this month, but I find it difficult to believe that it would have been kept so quiet. To me, something is not right about all of this.

Earlier today, I was shocked to hear that the Mueller Report was being offered for sale online, and so I decided to check it out for myself.

And sure enough, you can find it listed on Amazon.com for $9.37 right here. “Robert S. Mueller III” is listed as an author, “Special Counsel’s Office U.S. Department of Justice” is listed as an author, and the listing tells us that the introduction will be written by attorney Alan Dershowitz.

MissMarple2

anonamm,

Where do you get that magnesium water (if I remember correctly what you said this morning)?

I quit drinking gin because I noticed I was getting heart races occasionally. I take a medication for that because years ago I wound up in the ER when one wouldn't stop and that is when I found out my BP was so high.

I am concerned about electrolytes because I take 4 meds for BP and heart rate, and I often feel like I am getting dehydrated even though I drink water a lot.

Anonamom:
Good advice as always.

Hi Soylent!

The networks are increasingly irrelevant when it comes to political events. I like to get everything through YouTube, either directly from the White House channel or through RSBN.

Either way though, the DNC is risking pissing off perfectly normal voters who they will desperately need in 2020.

cathyf

...of course I post on the dead thread...

I'm not so sure that the emergency declaration vote isn't canny politics. If enough Republicans say that they will vote with the dems, but only enough to give them 51 votes, then this forces the dem senators -- all of them -- to vote against border security, and in favor of terrorism and drug and human trafficking. Those votes can be used to bludgeon them in the election. And, since they DON'T have the votes to override the veto, no-harm-no-foul on actually promoting invasion/terrorism/trafficking. The Republican senators are Rand Paul, who won't be hurt because Texas admires a man of principles as long as he's not hurting them, and the Dope Sisters are just dopey. This is standard legislative politics -- on close votes, once you have enough votes to win, you let a few of your guys vote the other way to help the individual lawmakers with the voters at home, but with the understanding that if you need him to switch to your side he will. (This is the job of the House and Senate Whips of each party -- counting the votes and calling for the vote at the right time.)

This is similar to the Republicans scheduling a vote on the Green New Deal. Force the dems to actually vote for the thing rather than just talk.

I'm far behind, but I just wanted to mention that via Peter I'm in touch with the first officer Tim who had the misfortune of finding daddy in the hotel room. He had been in touch with Barbara, daddy's wife, and had relayed that she'd like to hear from Jim_NJ about daddy's last day.

Since I didn't know how to make that happen at the moment, I told him by e-mail a bit of what I knew based on daddy's last post (forgive me, quoting from part of it that described his NYC tour with Jim_NJ), and he was very touched, and said if anyone wants to reach out to him, he'd be happy to communicate. He said he is "close to getting home," and plans to speak with daddy's family tomorrow. And in particular, Jim_NJ, if there's some way for me to get you his contact info, or vice-versa, he'd like to hear from you.

I wonder if it could have been an artery at the back of heart. They don't show up easily unless you do the whole nuclear tread mill with dye test. My husband had one of these "widow makers" and it was completely unknown to us until he felt a small twinge and we insisted on tests, which the Drs. did not recommend at first. The EKG was normal and just fine. The Dr. said if not for the dye treadmill, it would never have been detected and it would have blown one day.

Ex - I think it is understandable that everyone is trying to figure out what might have happened. This was totally out of the blue and as Buckeye just posted, pilots are routinely tested.

Years ago we had a Delta pilot, age 59, who returned home from a flight, felt like he was getting a cold, lay down for a nap and never woke up. (massive heart attack after passing his physical 3 weeks prior.) There were no other warning signs for him, either.

Everyone is trying to process this and I think we are all in shock as well as sad.
