    WWII, the real history. Bourbon America/Britain used (Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan) to invade (Russia, China) with the help of collaborators (Lazar Kaganovich, Chiang Kai-shek). (Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China) defeated the invaders, and the collaborators and their progeny were exiled to (Israel/Siberia, HK/Taiwan).

    • threewickets says:

      We did not fight Germany or Japan. That is high-grade Hollywood CIA lying which has miraculously survived for almost a century. 🙂 Today we have managed to install Kaganovich’s Bourbon great-grandson as Ukraine’s king (effectively).

      • Somebody says:

        I wish my FIL and Uncle were still alive. One served as a tail gunner over Europe and Africa, the other as a pilot in the Pacific theater. Trust me neither had any idea they were part of Hollywood central casting🙄 In fact I dare say they’d take exception to that assertion, because it was very real to them. They lost buddies, they took incoming, yep gonna say it was very real for them.

        • threewickets says:

          RIP to them. You guys must have security clearance to troll fake history. Perish the thought. The Greatest Generation, from Prescott and Garbo to Kissinger and Marilyn. They were/are something else. The greatest propaganda tool ever invented by man landed on their laps, and they used it!

        • Swan Spirit says:

          My father was a tail gunner too. I think the flak wound scars in his leg were real.

        • threewickets says:

          We are all security clearance people here. But did we bomb German cities to cover our tracks when our side began losing? Sure. But the war in WWII Europe was in the East. There was no Western Front.

    • helenk3 says:

      My father was in the CBI theater of war. While the British were building the Burma road to get supplies to China, The Americans were building the Ledo Road to join the Burma road. They were supplying China to fight the Japanese. My dad came home on a hospital ship from that hell hole While we were helping China the Chinese were attacking our convoys and killing our soldiers To this day I do not trust China and seeing how the dems seem to have embraced them I am very unhappy with them.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I started liking the Chinese when Trump was President, at least the respect they showed him seemed genuine. I don’t remember that with any other Presidents?

    • DandyTIger says:

      LOL. Someone’s cheese done slide off their cracker.

    • threewickets says:

      As I say, you’re all CIA lifers. Your job is to support the CIA narratives. Most of the US fighting in WWII took place at MGM and KA in Queens. There was no Tora Tora Tora, there was no Saving Private Ryan D-Day. Ask Mike Pompeo.

      Less than 1% who received the vac? I clicked on the Denver link hoping to get more information, nobody’s saying what kind of reaction, could be that fainty thing some people feel as a reaction to any needle. Nah, let’s just stir up the fear 😦

      https://denvergazette.com/news/coronavirus/mass-vaccination-event-at-dicks-sporting-goods-park-shut-down-following-a-number-of-adverse/article_1917616a-9801-11eb-817f-a7833cd7f731.html

      • votermom says:

        yeah – 1700 jabs, 13 adverse events in the 2 hours they were under observation, 2 transported to hospital
        Since I tend to be the weirdo who gets a doctor to exclaim “I have never seen that reaction before!” I think I’m just gonna indefinitely delay any shot at this point.

        • Somebody says:

          2 hour observation? That’s odd, none of the vaccines have a two hour observation period🤔 It’s usually 30 minutes. When I got mine, the county was doing 15 minutes which I thought was odd, since it’s 30 everywhere. On top of that my nurse couldn’t do math, so my timestamp netted a 6 minute observation window🙄

          • DeniseVB says:

            15 minutes here too.

          • lateblum says:

            I just now asked dd#1 how long she was “observed” for negative effects in Seattle. She said there were seats just outside the vaxxing location where they were directed to stay, “until they felt they were safe to go”. No one checked on them and dd left after 6 minutes.

          • DeniseVB says:

            I think the reaction they were monitoring was the deadly one where you stop breathing? My doctor’s practice used several exam rooms with chairs outside within eye shot of the nurse giving the shots, every now and then she’d dismiss the person waiting the longest, no exam. My side effects came 3 days after the 2nd dose of Moderna. Achy and fatigued, no fever, so I popped tylenol and slept for about 24 hours and felt fine ever since. Was told that was my immune system kicking in 🙂

          • helenk3 says:

            Ours was 15 minute and it was carefully timed.

          • votermom says:

            Now that I reread the article, not sure where I read 2 hours – coulda sworn I saw it somewhere though.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I have noticed when that Articles get updated online, they often do not make it clear there have been changes. Old time types place new, updated or corrected info above and leave the original alone.

          • Somebody says:

            Leslie your daughter and I had the same observation period🤣 I was fine and sounds like she was too.

            Hubby and I had ours at a local school. Once you got the vaccine the nurse put your release time on a post-it note that you handed to someone else when you were assigned a chair. When your time was up they called your chair number. You walked to the front there were a couple of nurses standing there that asked if you felt OK, they may have asked specific stuff, can’t remember it was brief. There was a doctor near them at a table, I presume he was there in case someone had issues.

            My kids got their vaccine at the grocery store. They require you to stay for 30 minutes. Publix has chairs in the pharmacy area. Winn Dixie doesn’t make you sit there, but they ask you not to leave the store for 30 minutes.

            My guess the retailers have a longer wait period for CYA purposes.

          • taw46 says:

            My moderna shots were at Winn-Dixie pharmacy. No doctors or nurses present. They asked you to wait 15 minutes and let them know when you were leaving. I was not in their view, so if I had a reaction they would not have known. Unless some grocery shopper saw me and was kind enough to let them know there was a body on the floor.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            “Clean-up in aisle six!”

          • DeniseVB says:

            LOL. Unless it’s double coupon day, they won’t notice either 😉 I had a shingles vac at a Farm Fresh, got dizzy and anxious, so left the waiting area to go outside to get fresh air. Never crossed my mind I was having a reaction, but I never went back for the 2nd shot. This never happened with the Moderna.

      • Mothy67 says:

        It’s all things all the time, but especially covid.
        Lock yourself away from all news for six days and then watch 30 minutes to realize how insanely perverse the media is.
        I knew it was dreadful, but you get so used to it– like the air. Media is toxic.
        My county reports daily totals at 11 am. 500 positives are always listed as including likely. What does that mean? There are pcr test results and “likely” cases. So a person visits a medical pro and is diagnosed without a test. The MD just decides based on what?
        No info on if the 500 are actually sick. Is it mild? How many of those hospitalized have multiple co-morbidities? Any death is tragic, but has to be placed in perspective.
        India’s numbers are escalating, but the deaths are not escalating, thus far, at a corresponding rate.
        Pimples are nuts. Getting tested for no reason. I know of people who try and get tested with every sniffle. Come on man.
        The article yesterday about some high % of people suffering from neurological and mental health disorders 6 months after infection was unadulturated bullshit. Anxiety and depression are not because one had kung flu. It’s because the sky is falling all day every day. There is almost no hard news. It’s covid, kardashian, battered asians, race, race, race.
        Putrid. We can’t know why a 12 year old had so much dispair causing him to jump from the 15th story , but it should cause those selling fear porn to pause and reflect. How much are we responsible for this dark cloud hanging over our youth.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        I wonder? Had they been tested for Antibodies ?

      • jadzia1971 says:

        True, but in most age groups the adverse outcome rate of Covid is similarly low, so I think it’s fair to give the J&J vaccine a longer look.

    • Anthony says:

      They’re doing their best to discredit it because it’s the only one that doesn’t have MRNA. I hate these bastards more and more every day

      • Somebody says:

        You may have a point Anthony. Technically astrazeneca isn’t mrna, but it uses a chimpanzee virus, hence the issues with it.

        J&J uses human adenovirus #26, discovered in 1956. They’ve used it for other vaccine virus vectors. It’s a more traditional vaccine. I don’t know about other areas, but in my area they have found that people are much less skeptical of the J&J, particularly within the minority communities.

        There isn’t a vaccine known to man that doesn’t carry some risk for adverse reaction. It would be very helpful to know what the issues were.

      • lateblum says:

        I think you’re onto something, Anthony. The moment I saw (but not read) the links above, I wondered aloud, “How much have states and the feds, invested into Pfizer or Moderna.” I think Ive become more and more skeptical the longer this goes on. I have nothing to prove or disprove anything. I’m just untrusting of the authorities unless and until they can prove to me, that what they are telling me is truth.
        It turns out, IL governor, JBPritzker has money invested in companies that developed and promote their testing protocol. Guess which testing is used throughout IL? And it is forced on the students at UofIL on a weekly basis.

    • Somebody says:

      I wonder if any of the tainted doses we heard about in the news slipped through? They know the lot number they are using in Denver. Wonder where it came from and how it has been stored?

    • DandyTIger says:

      Totally a CIA/Hollywood lie. If you had security clearance you’d know this. OK, I’m still having fun with a certain nut job above.

    New NYC goal, get an orchestra seat, plan the trip ❤

    • elliesmom says:

      Or see it premiered in Boston. 🙂

      • DeniseVB says:

        Glad you saw that, sounds like a fun weekend in the city for you and the kids 😀

        • elliesmom says:

          That was an invitation.

          • elliesmom says:

            The Colonial Theater is wonderfully restored to its former glamour, but as Broadway theaters go, it’s not very big so it would probably be more spectacular to see it NYC. They also use Boston to work out the “kinks” so the shows aren’t always as flawless. But the Colonial is right across the street from the Commons and a short walk to the famous Parker House, the Ritz, and the Four Seasons. My favorite places to stay in the city are the Fairmont or across river at the Charles in Cambridge if I’m spending big bucks, but there are lots of nice boutique places with lower price tags. Boston is a walking city, and the Colonial is right in the middle of everything. The Freedom Trail is right there. I’d invite you to stay with me, but I’m about an hour and a half away since I moved, and that would make a theater night a very late night. But I would love you to come, and I could meet you at the Swan Boats. 😉

          • DeniseVB says:

            Taking the Amtrak to Boston is still on my bucket list and probably the best way to travel for a senile, old stroke survivor. M sees his knee surgeon next month for hopefully a June date with the knife, I bet he’ll be recovered before the Boston run is over? I would love the fancy schmancy hotel experience, I’m long overdue for treating myself, no budget 😀

          • DeniseVB says:

            SMH, I misread my own link. Next summer, NEXT summer, June/July 2022. Nevermind, if M and I aren’t back to normal by then……….oy veyl

          • DeniseVB says:

            OMG, that would be so fun. I think Mahty’s knee surgery on the docket for this summer……always something.

          • elliesmom says:

            When we were in San Francisco, we didn’t stay at the Fairmont, but we went there one night for dinner so we could “leave our hearts there”. ED fell in love with the hotel and was disappointed I hadn’t booked us in there. But the Fairmont is at the top of Telegraph Hill, and the Hyatt is at the base. I thought we’d rather walk down a hill to get back to the hotel when we were tired. The next time we stayed in Boston, I booked us a suite at the Fairmont to atone for my sins. It was hard to get ED to stay anywhere else after that. As classic as the Fairmont is, the Charles is starkly modern. It has a rooftop restaurant that’s mostly glass overlooking the Charles River. I loved to stay there when it was snowing. But I’ve stayed lots of other places in the city that were lovely, too. It was hard to get ED to travel. Easier to get him to move somewhere, but a night or two in Boston was an easy sell. It’s a great weekend getaway city.

      • lateblum says:

        Besides, DeBlasio isn’t mayor of Boston…

    • DandyTIger says:

      Oooh. And I have taken Amtrak to Boston. Really comfy and nice ride. Might have to look into this.

  7. elliesmom says:

    I was doing neighborhood mailbox meet-up yesterday, and someone posited the question, “If you could wake up tomorrow morning anywhere at all, where would you like to be?” I need to think about that a bit, but it reminded me of one of my husband’s mentors. The guy was about to turn 80, and his wife convinced him to finally retire. He had made a small fortune for the company, and the company was looking for a suitable retirement gift. They asked him that same question with the idea of sending him and his wife on a nice vacation. His answer was “I’d wake up as the judge at the Pillsbury Bake-Off”. The company sent them on a transatlantic cruise, but the guys he worked with daily got everyone to bake fancy things, and then they set up a huge (and I mean huge) table and gave him a big box of plastic forks. They had prize ribbons made printed “The Great Send-off Bake-off”. But I have to think about where I’d like to wake up.

      In fact, when my sister got married (in VT), we went to the farmers’ market that morning, and picked several bouquets of springtime garden and wildflowers to make her bridal bouquet and two smaller bunches of flowers for my mother and for me. So lovely.

        This past week the office building gang were, after not saying much of anything for months, whining about how things are going in the swamp. Short version, it would be worse with PT. And they were all Even more dejected than than they were for four years of PT. I can only conclude things are not going the way they envisioned.

  15. Somebody says:

    Heads up, finally some information about the adverse effects from the J&J vaccine in Denver. CBS-4 out of Denver has a report, sorry don’t know how to do links on my phone. Maybe someone can find and link it.

    11 people had either nausea or dizziness, out of an abundance of caution they stopped giving the vaccine.

    As I reported my daughter had nausea, but not immediately after getting the vaccine. These people had immediate symptoms from what I gather.

    • Miranda says:

      I’m not sure how much of that was effect or nerves. I just had mine, and sitting around waiting to see if you have symptoms can trigger hypochondria. “Am I having anaphylactic shock RIGHT NOW?” I felt a little nausea, but was pretty sure it was nerves and it’s cleared up. I was also double-masked in the facility, and I felt better after pulling the bottom mask down so I had sufficient air.
      FTR, my arm is a little sore at the moment, and I took some ibuprofin. No desire for brains as yet 🙂

      • lyn5 says:

        When my sister received the second shot, she had a fever and put thermometers in every orifice.

        • Miranda says:

          I know a couple of people who had fevers after shot 2 and took advil and slept. There was apparently trouble at another site doing J&J, but I didn’t see any problems where I got mine.

          • Somebody says:

            Another site in NC?

            I’m curious if any of the tainted batches made it our of Maryland before the problem was discovered, especially if there were issues in NC as well as CO. Certainly something that warrants watching, because so far the J&J has been fairly adverse event free. I know one man had what appeared to be an SJS reaction with skin peeling. Two people died fairly close to getting the vaccine, those were being looked into. One of them I don’t think had anything to do with the vaccine, but the other one sure seemed like it might have.

            Aside from those and the 11 people that reported nausea and dizziness in CO, I’ve not heard of any other adverse effects aside from the expected side effects.

          • Somebody says:

            Very interesting, they don’t say what issues the people had other than they were consistent with expected reactions and yet shut the site down???

            Another item of interest in the linked article, the vaccines at that site were handled by an “intermediary”, they don’t give any details on that. They specifically say Duke was going ahead with mass vaccinations and that Duke’s supply was not handled by an intermediary.

          • Miranda says:

            Apparently, they halted at the site where I got mine after I was done. Oh, well. I still feel fine, and if something goes horribly wrong later, a good time was had by all.

          • Somebody says:

            I’m beginning to think Anthony is correct with his suspicions.

            Think about it, except for once in California they haven’t shut down the administration of the other two vaccines and we know there have been people with severe adverse reactions including death.

            Now two states shut down J&J in as many days and all we hear is nausea? Couple that with the factory mishap. J&J is getting a lot of bad press all of the sudden🤔

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            Well that and when you have thousands gong in and out, and human nature being what it is, I would not be surprised there if people perhaps seeing someone having a reaction causes them to be more likely to speak up than they would in a smaller setting.

          • Somebody says:

            By the by Miranda, not sure when you took your ibuprofen, but if you got your vaccine at 1:30pm your side effects are going to hit in the middle of the night.

            Try to time it so you take a hefty dose, prescription strength is 600 to 800mg, that’s your target. Try to take it right before bedtime if you can, it should last 6 to 8 hours. You may not feel so well when you wake up in the morning, so have ibuprofen handy. You’ve already cleared your schedule, just setlle down in front of the TV and rest. About lunchtime or shortly after you’ll probably be feeling better. You may be like your husband and mine and not have any issues, I certainly hope that’s the case😉

    HONEY: Is this ancient medicinal food the key to fighting deadly drug-resistant infections?

    Exotic honey can be used as a powerful alternative when treating one of the deadliest infections in the U.S. today. A report published in the International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents confirms that exotic honey can battle antibiotic-resistant infections, like Clostridium difficile. Interestingly, C.difficile is caused by an overdose of antibiotics.

      Back in 2013, I got stung by a bee on my lower leg while I was mowing the lawn. The area immediately swelled up and a huge blister, the size of an egg showed up shortly after and it hurt like hell, so the next day I went to urgent care because it was really bothering me. It was diagnosed as a venous ulcer and they sent me to the wound clinic at the local hospital.
      The wound clinic cleaned the area, then used bee honey and bee pollen on the area and put my leg in a soft cast from knee to ankle. I had to return every week for the next five weeks so they could remove the cast, clean, apply bee honey/pollen and recast until it completely healed.

    Is anyone else following along with the Chauvin trial in Minneapolis? The trial is 9 days into the prosecution’s case. If you’re only seeing that side reported, then things don’t look great for Chauvin, but on cross examination, his lawyer is a real Perry Mason. He’s turning the prosecution’s witnesses into defense witnesses. He’s even said he plans to call a couple of prosecution witnesses back to the stand to testify for the defense. At first I thought the Milwaukee policemen who are testifying for the prosecution were contemptible, bur now I suspect they knew they could be more helpful to Chauvin if they appeared to be in agreement wth the prosecution. Like Marlene Dietrich in “The Witness for the Prosecution”.

    I think Minneapolis, and some other cities, too, are going to burn no matter what the verdict is. If he’s acquitted or the jury is hung, it will be from anger. If Chauvin is found guilty, then they’ll burn in celebration. While as a juror, I would be concerned for my own safety and the safety of my family, I wouldn’t be worred whether there will be riots or not. I would just assume it’s going to happen no matter how I voted. The msm is pumping up the crowds to believe Chauvin is losing the case big time. If they’re watching the trial, they must know that’s not true. I think they’re deliberately setting things for a massive riot.

        Except for The Five – when I remember and feel like turning the tv on – I watch very little news. Mostly, I watch the local tv station for news. And I’ve gone back to listening to the classical music radio station nearly full time until some of the weekly evening shows come on tv. And those are usually old series that I never saw when they aired the first time.. I think my bp appreciates the music.

    • lateblum says:

      Agreed, em. I just had this same conversation with dd this morning.

  19. Mothy67 says:

    What do you think of the doormen being fired for not assisting the woman who was attacked outside a NY building? Perhaps they are cowards and should be shunned from society, but is being a total asswipe cause for termination? Is it even legal to terminate for not helping? Can one be fired for a lack of humanity? I was more disturbed by the casual way the one guy closed the door than the failure to assist. There could be a valid fear that the guy was crazed and maybe armed. He just watches for a few blows. My impression is they are garbage, but I wonder about the legality of firing.

    • lateblum says:

      In this climate, you get fired for not helping or fired for helping. It happens both ways. I think the business fired the men because their *not* helping reflected badly on the the business itself.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Reminds me of the Seinfeld finale when they threw them all in jail for breaking the town’s Good Samaritan Law for laughing at and not helping a mugging victim.

        • elliesmom says:

          I never really got that one. Good Samaritan laws protect people who do stop to help from being sued by the people they help. You can’t be sued if you don’t help. At one time I had an EMT license, which meant I wasn’t covered by GS laws, and if I loused up helping someone, I could have been sued, Most companies cover their employees with malpractice insurance, but if you aren’t covered by them, you need to buy your own. It’s very expensive. I turned my license in for a Red Cross certification when it expired to avoid needing insurance. My scouts’ parents loved having me be on the camping trips, and I bandaged up a lot of cuts and scrapes, but not until my license expired. If I known, I would have taken the course, but not the exam. i never had plans to get a job as an EMT.

    Medical update, saw radiologist yesterday and surgeon today. My issues from over the weekend have receded, but not disappeared. I’ve gone from “superstar” recovery patient to “superdud” 😕

    I had a string of doctors examine me, seems this complicates everything. I’m not a candidate for more surgery because of radiation it would delay my treatment too long. Bonus, seems I won’t be a candidate after radiation either. Extra bonus this issue puts me at higher risk for complications, but damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead😳

    I now need several more tests, including a mapping of some of my internal organs. So my schedule just got busier, oh and they added another doctor to follow me, so I’ll have 3 specialists I see weekly. Despite my schedule, when I’m not seeing doctors or getting tests I’m back to bed rest. I guess I’ll slowly turn into Jabba the Hutt🙄

    Chemo and radiation start on 4-26, my son and Melania Trump’s BD. It looks like 5 to 6 weeks barring any nasty surprises on the MRI. They say I’ll fly through the first 3 weeks, after that it will get more difficult with each passing day. Gosh something to look forward too🥴 I should be back to normal about a month after treatment, but now I’ll have these other issues to deal with.

      Thanks guys, I’ll be OK. I’m a big girl, getting bigger by the day in fact🙄

      Speaking of getting bigger, early on they warned me that I may have sudden weight loss from the chemo. Me being me, I was like how much weight loss? Silver lining incoming😁 When they finalize my treatment plan and go over it with me, I find out I’m going to get high dose steroids as part of the plan.

      You should have seen their faces when I exclaimed “Wait, what? I’m getting the fat chemo? You promised me weight loss, now I’m getting steroids? I’m getting the fat chemo? This is bullshit!” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Then they tell me I may experience mood swings. I know that, my daughter had high dose decadron. So for good measure I smile broadly and tell them “You haven’t seen a bitch until you put me on steroids, sucks to be you” 🤣🤣🤣🤣 OMG, they were wide eyed🤣🤣🤣

      Only the two PA’s get my humor, one is with oncology the other with radiation. Those two get me, we cut up all the time. In fact today the PA saw me and said, “You just had to snag the Miss April spot, you diva you!” 🤣 Went over everyone else’s head.

      I told you all about my snarky comment when redneck granny questioned me about what “kind of pictures I was having” that required me to strip from head to toe when I was waiting to get my MRI. I told her it was a centerfold spread I was Miss January. Word got back to my oncologist office apparently. Clearly they all heard about my bitchy little comment, but only the PA sought me out and asked me about it. She thought it was hilarious.

      Flash forward, I have a very rare cancer so they like to take actual pictures😳 lots of them. My surgery was in February, prior to surgery and immediately following, pictures, pictures, pictures. So the joke was, now you’re Miss February. Then my re-checks were in March…..congratulations you’re Miss March too, time for another photo shoot. Got a photo shoot today too🤪 hence the Miss April comment.

      As long as I stay on the positive side of the ledger and kick this cancer’s ass, they can take all the pictures they want😉

      Truly I’m OK, annoyed with this latest wrinkle. Concerned as I should be, but also ready to put this behind me.

      Oh and did I mention I’m now getting the fat chemo🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 Pro-tip, don’t annoy me during May, I might get nasty🤗 If I do, I apologize in advance to everyone except the trolls😉

        It turns out when it comes to cancer, laughter really is good medicine. We participated in a study when my son was going through treatment, and patients who kept their sense of humor and had families who laughed with them tolerated chemo and radiation better, spent fewer days in the hospital, and returned to a normal life faster after recovery. It didn’t cure cancer, but it made the experience more tolerable.

        I still say Cancer doesn’t stand a chance… you even turned it into a Calendar gig. Poor fucking Cancer has no idea how bad this is gonna get before it’s over…

        My mom had a similar reaction to chemo: “Wait, this is like a diet that will actually work?”

        Spoiler alert: She recovered and went on to live for many years after the Year of Cancer.

      Oh shoot, Somebody. I am sorry this is dragging out. At least it sounds as though they know what they’re doing. I just hope it doesn’t take too much out of you. I’m sending prayers your way. I wish it could be over yesterday. But your family at home and your family here are all here for you. 😘💕💕💕

      Mental health plays a role in the immune system. And even many of those who’s up till had jobs were under extra stress and had their support and social systems gutted. . Many worried with the risk of highly exposed work such a health and grocery store workers , people coping with trying to work from home often in jobs where this had not been the norm and hoping they will not lose the job, dealing with kids not going to school and trying patch together lessons from school systems that were not well prepared for such a drastic change, worrying about elderly parents they could not visit out of state , dealing with family members in, or potentially being admitted, to health facilities with staggering infection rates and questionable care. . . .and people are surprised those able to reclaim part of their lives sooner are doing better . . . Geez Louise.

    Prince Philip has died at 99. He and Queen Elizabeth were married over 70 years. While their children have been the subjects of numerous scandals, as people in the perpetual spotlight go, the two of them have done pretty well at keeping their dignity intact. While his passing may bring a public spectacle or two, I hope the Queen is given an opportunity to grieve privately.
