I’m Dreaming of a White Privilege . . .


First I get suspended from Twitter twice in two days, and now I’m coming down with a cold/flu/plague despite having no face-to-face real life contact with another human being in three days. The postman must have sneezed on my mail.

After my last cold/flu experience when I nearly did an Elvis with Nyquil I threw out all my OTC medications except aspirin and multi-vitamins.

Maybe in the morning I’ll get some whiskey. Better yet, I’ll call my mom and ask her to bring me some of her medicinal “herb”.

I hate being sick.

This is an open thread.

    Guess who?

    As always, the singer’s mom, Tish, accompanied her daughter, also looking demure in all black as she trailed along behind her.

    Answer here.

      So after marketing Miley to old men in the entertainment industry the usual way, do they really think they can market her to women and girls with some sort of fashiony thing? She’s over and forgotten and just another sell out to young girls and women who have been conditioned to not attach to female entertainers.

    Worst dad award goes to this guy – just saw ABC say that 20/20 is going to feature them.

    Apparently, regular American middle class family with a son & daughter until the mom died of breast cancer in 1996. Dad spirals into booze & drugs, loses job, car, home. Kids are honor students & on the swim team. Dad gets brilliant idea of robbing banks. Robs several and gets the even more brilliant idea of using his kids as his gang.

    They get caught, and get this, Dad writes letters to his kids asking them to agree to more jail time so he can get less time.

    He refuses to say he is to blame for the family tragedy or even that he’s a bad dad.
    “I think we can all step up to the plate and accept a spoonful of responsibility,” says Catt, 51, a slim 6-footer. “I’d say we’re all culpable.”
    Beyond that, Catt says he “needs more time to think” before he can explain why he led his family into this nightmare. Speaking to a reporter via telephone and two-way video from jail, he also says he wants fewer than 25 years in prison so that he can make amends to his mom, who is almost 80.

    “But the kids are still young enough,” he says. “They will be able to serve their time and move on.”

    Obama the oblivious
    By Charles Krauthammer, Published: December 12

    In explaining the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, President Obama told Chris Matthews he had discovered that “we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly.”

    An interesting discovery to make after having consigned the vast universe of American medicine, one-sixth of the U.S. economy, to the tender mercies of the agency bureaucrats at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Internal Revenue Service.

    Most people become aware of the hopeless inefficiency of sclerotic government by, oh, age 17 at the department of motor vehicles. Obama’s late discovery is especially remarkable considering that he built his entire political philosophy on the rock of Big Government, on the fervent belief in the state as the very engine of collective action and the ultimate source of national greatness. (Indeed, of individual success as well, as in “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”)

    This blinding revelation of the ponderous incompetence of bureaucratic government came just a few weeks after Obama confessed that “what we’re also discovering is that insurance is complicated to buy.” Another light bulb goes off, this one three years after passing a law designed to force millions of Americans to shop for new health plans via the maze of untried, untested, insecure, unreliable online “exchanges.”
    This discovery joins a long list that includes Obama’s rueful admission that there really are no shovel-ready jobs. That one came after having passed his monstrous $830 billion stimulus on the argument that the weakened economy would be “jump-started” by a massive infusion of shovel-ready jobs. Now known to be fictional.

    Barack Obama is not just late to discover the most elementary workings of government. With alarming regularity, he professes obliviousness to the workings of his own government. He claims, for example, to have known nothing about the IRS targeting scandal, the AP phone records scandal, the NSA tapping of Angela Merkel. And had not a clue that the centerpiece of his signature legislative achievement — the online Obamacare exchange, three years in the making — would fail catastrophically upon launch. Or that Obamacare would cause millions of Americans to lose their private health plans.

    Hence the odd spectacle of a president expressing surprise and disappointment in the federal government — as if he’s not the one running it. Hence the repeated no-one-is-more-upset-than-me posture upon deploring the nonfunctioning Web site, the IRS outrage, the AP intrusions and any number of scandals from which Obama tries to create safe distance by posing as an observer. He gives the impression of a man on a West Wing tour trying out the desk in the Oval Office, only to be told that he is president of the United States.

      Dr. Charles must read this blog 😉 We predicted this before the first term and it’s all come true. While the media was dumpster diving Sarah Palin, America elected an idiot. Could have sure used their help proving us right.

  6. Hmmmm. Mailman sneezing on the mail. I had not thought of it- but thinking about it now it makes sense. How many hands has the mail gone through before it actually gets to us? The person stuffing the envelope, the mailroom at the office, probably multiple people at the post office, FedEx, UPS, Amazon- wherever.
    Have to get a can of Lysol and spray all the mail before touching.

    Use a humidifier – it will help with some of your symptoms. Mine says it only needs to be filled every 49 hours – wrong as I’ve been refilling every 12 hours. Awfully dry here in downtown Wisconsin. My cold/flu is in the 7th day – finally beginning to feel better but still hacking and blowing nose. Don’t blame me as I didn’t send you any snail mail and I don’t think that my germs can penetrate the web yet. Get well soon. Egg nog and rum help with sleep.

    FWIW there is an herbal product called Kan Jang. It’s made in Sweden, they have pretty strict regulations so you don’t have to worry about the quality or weird stuff being in it. (I can expound on that if you desire my sister worked for the FDA) It’s also been put through some tests in Europe comparing it with anti-viral medicines and performed very well. It’s based on parts of a Chinese formula called Kan Jang……based on the parts scientifically proven to work. There is information out there on the web about it, you don’t have to take my word.

    I’ve used this product and I promise you it WORKS! If you take at the first sign of a cold coming on it stops it in its tracks. I’ve only needed to use it twice in the past few years, but it worked both times. My daughter used it once she had the same result. That’s not to say it would work on every virus, I’m sure there are some that it has no effect on but the common cold it does seem to work for.

    The only place you can buy it is online at a place called iherb. I buy it/hoard it and keep it on hand. It has a shelf life of about two years. Maybe you can blow some of your recycle money on a few boxes???

    There is a similar product available here in the states by the name of Kold Kare. It doesn’t have the exact same formula, isn’t as strong and isn’t as effective. Although some people say they’ve had good results with it.

    My final tiny piece of advice would be if you can manage to get out, get yourself a bottle of sambucus at a health food store. Sambucus is elderberry syrup. Elderberry has anti-viral properties and in some studies has been shown to shorten and lessen a cold. Its main claim to fame was that doctors found that many southerners escaped terrible flu epidemics in the early 1900’s or they had a milder case. Studies found elderberry commonly used by many southerners to be the reason. Once again there is a lot of information on the web about elderberry you don’t have to take my word for it. Also, it’s the best tasting “medicine” you’ll ever take! There should be dosages on the bottle for using it as a preventative or dosage when you actually have a cold or flu.

    Always wash your hands after opening the mail!! Same goes for after you unpack stuff from the store, did the clerk that put your cans on the shelf by chance have a cold? Always wash your hands or sanitize them and wash or wipe down anything you can. Always carry hand sanitizer with you everywhere you go, some viruses can take a week or more to show themselves after you’ve been exposed. You could also put some hand sanitizer near wherever you generally put your mail. I have hand sanitizers mounted on the wall by every exterior door in my house, also in my kitchen and bathrooms…….but I’m a bit of a germaphobe after my daugher’s bout with leukemia………OK I’m a big germaphobe.

      I am treating my cold with microwave burritos, potato chips and diet pepsi.

    • gxm17 says:

      I just looked it up. Kan Jang is a blend of andrographis and sambucus. That’s a great combination. Think I’ll order some!

      • Somebody says:

        Andrographis, I couldn’t remember exactly what was in it when I posted this earlier. I know you can get andrographis now, but when I originally looked for it I coudln’t find any…..but stumbled on the Kan Jang.

        As far as the Kan Jang gxm I think you’ll be pleased with it. My family has been very satisfied.

  13. Somebody says:

    You can buy Boiron Coldcalm or Oscillococcinum anywhere, my grocery store carries them. Any drug store would carry them, probably Wal-Mart too. Boiron makes pretty good products and I know lots of people that swear by Oscillococcinum.

    Combine whichever one of the Boiron products you think you need with sambucus and that should get you over your cold in short order. Although again I think Kan Jang is superior, the Boiron products are widely available and many people swear by them.

    Megyn Kelly absent from show post Santa, Jesus segment

    The night after Fox News’s Megyn Kelly asserted that both Santa Claus and Jesus Christ were white, Kelly was nowhere to be found for Thursday’s “The Kelly File.”

    Despite Bill O’Reilly leading in with “Ms. Megyn is next” at the end of his show, Martha MacCallum filled in for Kelly with no explanation, tweeting several hours before the 9 p.m. show that she would be stepping in.

    Kelly’s segment was widely panned by news organizations, bloggers and late-night comedians. Some, like The Washington Post’s Max Fisher took a factual approach to the story, interviewing religious scholars about the long debate over the race of Jesus. Others pointed to the segment’s apparent contradiction to Kelly’s assertion on Monday night during an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” that she’s a “straight news anchor.”

    And of course, the late-night comedians had a field day with Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Conan O’Brien all using the segment as fodder for jokes.

    We’ve reached out to Fox News for comment and will update this post.


    Update 9:55 a.m.:

    TVNewser reports that Megyn Kelly was out sick Thursday night and will address her Santa and Jesus comments on Friday night’s show. On Monday’s Leno appearance, Kelly mentioned she wouldn’t shake hands with Simon Cowell before the show because she had a bad cold.

    President Selfie as written about by John Kass in today’s Chicago Tribune:


      • leslie says:

        Sorry, I did not know that it is behind a subscription wall.
        I won’t reprint anything, but he does say that Bronco is all about himself. Whether it is at the Mandela Memorial or in the prison cell where Mandela was held, on the bus that Rosa Parks rode – it is always about Bronco. What Kass says he’d like to see are selfies from before the 2008 elections. Like when he looked at the house with Tony Rezko, the man who got it for him, or when he voted “present” all those times in the IL senate. Or selfies with Gov Blagojevich or Mayor Daley or Ayers and other well known and not so nice “bosses” in Illinois.
        He then mentions that if Mandela were such an idol of Bronco’s, he might try to emulate what Mr Mandela might do or at least try to measure up in some way to what Mandela stands for in the eyes of the world.
        Would that be too much? Why, yes, yes it would.(not Kass – my thought) We don’t call bronco 404 for nuthin’.

  28. What karma looks like. Money quote:

    It is not lost on many of the professionals that they are exactly the sort of people – liberal, concerned with social justice – who supported the Obama health plan in the first place. Ms. Meinwald, the lawyer, said she was a lifelong Democrat who still supported better health care for all, but had she known what was in store for her, she would have voted for Mitt Romney.

      • Lulu says:

        My favorite part of the article is “But while those policies, by and large, had been canceled because they did not meet the law’s requirements for minimum coverage, many of the New York policies being canceled meet and often exceed the standards, brokers say. The rationale for disqualifying those policies, said Larry Levitt, a health policy expert at the Kaiser Family Foundation, was to prevent associations from selling insurance to healthy members who are needed to keep the new health exchanges financially viable.”…..”Siphoning those people, Mr. Levitt said, would leave the pool of health exchange customers “smaller and disproportionately sicker,” and would drive up rates.”

        LOL. Some of these “Obama people” had insurance that was too GOOD. They were cancelled to shore up the exchanges to prevent a death spiral. They now are going to have shit insurance. They will not be able to access the top hospitals or providers they are used to unless they shell out for it. Poor little “Obama people”. No pity as this is what they expressly voted for. Fuck ’em.

      We should all be at the point NO ONE should trust Obama’s adminstration. None of these new awakenings should surprise us and we should call them on it, then forgive their kool aid hangovers. Dear Gawd, does “Liar of the Year” not give them a clue????

    Just got notice of *another* 10% increase in my BCBS monthly health insurance premium — that’s 3 years in a row (i.e., since 2010) and that’s not even counting the fact that my deductible & copays DOUBLED. So I’m paying more for less — which is what ALWAYS HAPPENS WHEN THE FEDS GET INVOLVED IN SHIT.

    Fuck Obamacare.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Mine has gone up around 200% so far, and benefits have been reduced. A lot. And that’s with a grandfathered policy. Since all grandfathered policies go away next year, I’m sure it will be fun seeing another 100 to 200% increase on top of that. But you know, lactate services will be a treat.

      • Somebody says:

        I guess we’re lucky that ours “only” went up 60%, but benefits have been reduced a lot. Co-pays have doubled except for a GP visit those didn’t quite double. Out of pocket percentage for everything went up 50%, per person deductible more than doubled and catastrophic went up 50%.

        However we do have less expensive mental health and substance abuse coverage…….that we don’t need. We also now have coverage for fertility treatment so I guess we could decide to raise another family in retirement, that is if donated eggs are covered. I wonder if we have lactation coverage too, since you do Dandy…….if not I’m so J!
