    What a picture!

    It really is eerie! 🙂

      This is what the lakefront here looked like last winter. The damage to the shore from wind and water and bitter cold was enormous. I have the receipts, as they say.

    Does Justice Sotomayor’s Intemperate Rant at Her Colleagues Indicate That She Knows Roe v. Wade Is About to Be Overturned?

    For the first time in my life, I have a strong feeling that the infanticidal regime established by Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and reinforced by a bevy of stupid and strictly results-oriented decisions might be on the verge of repudiation by a clear majority of the Supreme Court.

    Florida Officials Fight Back After White House Cuts Off Lifesaving COVID Treatments

    Early Tuesday Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that without warning the Biden administration cut off lifesaving monoclonal antibody treatments for patients suffering from Wuhan coronavirus. At the time of the announcement 2000 Floridians, the majority of whom are vaccinated, were scheduled to receive the treatment

    Just cause everything gets wierder by the day VShay needed an emotional song for a school thing
    I suggested The Drugs Don’t Work by The Verve
    It is about cancer drugs not working the guy wrote it to his dying grandmother
    I had a mother call and say I was promoting something or other to her credit she phoned me directly and didnt tattle. She didnt want her kid glorifying drugs. I said did you listen to any of the words. Love her she said no i just like my high horse.

  9. Mothy67 says:

    The Verve was underappreciated. They fucked up big by lifting a few lines/chords from The Stones. As if Mick Jagger didn’t steal
    Great song no matter

      Trump messed up big time with this one. I’m sure he’s loyal to the former State spokeswoman, but Robby is pretty settled with wide support. Reminds me of Trump letting in all sorts of swamp creatures in his admin, and not firing obvious ones while there. He definitely has some big blind spots.

    The British Medical Journal (BMJ) is demanding pharmaceutical companies release raw COVID-19 vaccine data. BMJ Editors Peter Doshi, Fiona Godlee, and Kamran Abbasi published an editorial stating that “data should be fully and immediately available for public scrutiny” adding that much of the data from major vaccine manufacturers cannot be accessed because the vaccinations are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

    Did anyone see Tucker’s interview with Rep. Armstrong? Unbelievable what Nancy has the Capitol Police doing since Jan 6. Not surprised, though.

    true statement

  18. taw46 says:

    Justice Breyer to retire.

  19. votermom says:

    Justice Breyer is retiring
    I’m guessing Brandon will nominate the person whose backer puts in the highest bid

    • taw46 says:

      Turley was just on FNC. He said the left has been pushing him to retire so Biden can appoint someone younger to the Court, even putting up billboards calling for his resignation. Turley said that was so disrespectful to the man (but hey, that’s the Dems for you!) Also, he said that Biden had made a pledge to only appoint a black female to the Court. Lol, now the rumors are running wild that it is a way to get rid of Kamala. Although I feel the same about her as I did about Obama, probably too lazy to do that job.

      • lyn5 says:

        Appoint Mooch, Pedo!

      • lyn5 says:

      • lateblum says:

        The fact that Kamala is too lazy – not to mention unserious and not very smart – to do the job, doesn’t mean a thing. The purpose is to get her away from the Oval Office and get someone who actually might be able to do the job when Biden doesn’t run again.

        Of course, that rules out Buttigieg to any *cognitively aware human being.

        And *that rules out Biden.

        • taw46 says:

          Yes, I agree with all of that. But just because those handling Biden want her gone, doesn’t mean Kamala would accept it. I just don’t think she wants any part of the Supreme Court, just the same as Barack not wanting it. They may eventually get her to resign due to “family reasons”, but I don’t think the Court does it for her.

      • lateblum says:

        Shannon Bream just said that Justice Breyer was upset that someone released his decision to retire before he did. Apparently it was so important that democrats all over the nation might have something “positive” to focus on since the presidency and Biden himself are in the toilet.

    As I said yesterday, I spent almost 5 hours listening to Senator Ron Johnson’s panel discussion on covid-19. The theme of the meeting was “a second opinion”. His co-host was Dr. Peter McCoullough from Baylor University. The other guests on the panel were doctors and scientists who have all been involved with covid some way. Johnson and McCoullough did a good job of giving all of the speakers time to speak, but not more time than was necessary to say their piece, and to keep the speakers using language most lay people could follow without feeling talked down to. In the immediate audience were attorneys representing aggrieved parties, nurses who have treated covid patients, people who have lost relatives, and people who have been injured by the vaccines. They were also allowed to be heard. People from the CDC, FDA, NIH, and pharmaceutical companies were invited but declined. One of the things that jumped out at me was while there were disagreements among the people on the panel, there was a level of collegiality and respect that is so often missing today.

    The panel discussion relied on what Johnson and McCoullough called “four pillars”. They were
    Stop the Spread
    Early Home Treatment
    Last Stage Hospitalization
    Vaccination/Herd Immunity

    In the first segment, the panel talked about what they knew about the virus at the start and how that knowledge was used and misused from the beginning. Who was making those decisions and how the virus became so politicized. The second segment concentrated on what treatments could have been used to treat people at home that were known pretty much from the beginning. Doctors already knew how to treat inflammation and clotting issues, but were kept from doing so. Their estimates of how many people died needlessly were chilling. Off-label drugs like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine got a full hearing. They also remarked there is no hospital in the country that has stepped up and provided a standard of care document as a guideline for treating patients before they are seriously ill enough to need to be hospitalized. Doctors who have published their own guides have been both censored and censured.

    Segment three had two components. One was how poorly many patients were treated medically. The incentives hospitals were given to use the most expensive treatments when cheaper, more effective, and safer alternatives were available. The other component was how inhumanely patients and their families were treated. The stories from the nurses were heartbreaking. There was an intense discussion in this part of the conference on how the pharmaceutical companies are now running our medical system. Doctors are not being allowed to decide how to treat their own patients.

    Segment four was all about the vaccines, how they work, and why they don’t. There was a lot of knowledge about vaccinology on the panel, including Robert Malone. If you’ve never understood how this vaccine is supposed to work and why it hasn’t lived up to expectations, if you watch, you’ll learn a lot about T-cells. One of the panelists asked a question about how the mechanisms works. Malone explained the original mRNA technology was being designed to treat brain cancers. Researchers were trying to find a way to get chemotherapy drugs to pass through the blood/brain barrier. I got a little lost in the woods on this discussion, but the bottom line is we were told the vaccines would remain at the injection site, and that was a major lie from day one. The technology was specifically designed to be able to move cells around our bodies easily. Two of the things the pharma companies didn’t test for deliberately were the long term effects on reproductive systems and on propensity for cancers developing. We already know the T-cells the vaccines stimulate own bodies to create travel to heart muscles.

    The end of the conference gave time to attorneys representing the thousands of servicemen who have been harmed by the vaccines, a scientist who talked about how African-American people’s bodies react differently to the vaccines, a nurse who has been fired for refusing the vaccine, injured people, and a nurse who traveled to NYC at the beginning of the pandemic.

    There was, of course, a lot of details I can’t add without writing a book, but I think I caught the highlights, and I hope I’ve stayed objective. Senator Johnson put together a lot of very knowledgeable people, most of whom have been described as “snake oil salesmen”, but all have impeccable credentials. If anybody else has watched or listened to the discussion, please add what you think I’ve left out. Five hours was a long lecture, and I’m not an auditory learner. I would love to read a transcript, but I don’t think they plan on issuing one.

    Good one:

      ⬆️That is a good one.

      Here’s another…

    • Anthony says:

      My guess is Gorsuck. Gorsuch. Replacing him with another lib = no change whatsoever.

      I’m more curious about what real news is being eclipsed by the MSM wall to wall coverage on thus nothingburger.

      • Anthony says:

        Damn… I meant Garland, not Gorsuch

      • Somebody says:

        No, Garland is too old and too white. Besides he rather enjoys being AG, vindictive and partisan prick that he is.

        Biden has promised an AA woman. Ketanji Brown Jackson, another highly partisan judge. She AA and only 50. Obama appointed her as a district judge in DC in 2013. She let swamp creatures slide, but put Manafort in solitary while he awaited trial, etc. She somehow managed to get assigned all the Trumpsters and was tough on all of them. Biden slid her onto the DC appeals to replace Garland when he was confirmed as AG. For a bit of extra swampiness, her husband’s twin brother is Paul Ryan’s BIL. She’s Harvard educated, editor of their law review, etc.

    What bothers me about covid is what we didn’t learn because orange man bad. I had the talk with my PCP. He pushed hard sort of for me get the jab. I have never had a sick day that didn’t involve 80 proof. I declined the shot. There isnt enough enough info about an mrna for me to feel comfortable with my heart. It is a lot of fake. I cant find answers on transplants and mrna. I read stuff where an mrna could perhaps attack foreign stuff. I have teflon and pig valves. According to my Russian anesthesia guy I am the oldest person with pig valves alive. I got mine in 1970. They according to google can last 12 years. Oops I am 55.
    I repeat I have never had a cold. I got hundreds of transfusions as a kid. Is it possible that I gained profound immunity from everyone who gave me blood? I am not a scientist. I don’t get how a new drug like an mrna work. I had questions. There are no answers. I dont won’t to be experiment. Let me be. Should I get kung flu let me die. I am not ready to perish for Fauci. No. Not yesterday. Not today. Not Tomorrow.

  29. jadzia1971 says:

    Oops, left today’s comment downstairs. Sudden pain in my left jaw and can’t bring the back upper and lower teeth on that side together. Haven’t been in an accident and don’t grind my teeth as far as I know. Could it be dislocated? I’m afraid to seek medical attention in light of… well, you know.

    It hurts like a bitch. And my ears hurt like I’m on an airplane, which is weird. No, I DON’T want to try to put the jaw back in place myself.

    • lateblum says:

      Do you have a good dentist?

      • jadzia1971 says:

        I do. He is an hour from here, but I actually have two appointments in his city tomorrow morning.

        Unfortunately, it takes three months to get in for an appointment. You know why I chose him? Because he’s young and his practice is brand-new and that’s why I can get in for an appointment in ONLY three months: every dentist in my city, it’s a year-long wait.

        My ex’s dad is a retired dentist, so I sent an SOS to the ex to ask his dad what I should do. There must be some kind of emergency resources, right?

        • taw46 says:

          Don’t they see patients in emergencies? Most doctors/dentists will do that. I would stop by his office tomorrow.

          • lateblum says:

            What taw said. The could say they can’t see you, but they might surprise you and walk you into an examination room.

    • lateblum says:

      Also, could it be TMJ? I hope this gets resolved quickly. (((Hugs)))

      • jadzia1971 says:

        That is what Dr. Google says, but to the best of my knowledge, I don’t grind my teeth!

      • Somebody says:

        Trigeminal neuralgia? That usually comes and goes, but not always.

        Do you have anything for pain? Have you tried warm or cold compresses? How about NSAID? Do you have a crown or filling that may have dislodged? You said your ear feels like you’ve been on a plane, does your ear hurt? Could be something connected to your ear or sinuses. Try a dentist or an ENT.

        I hope whatever it is can be easily resolved, ((hugs)).

    • lyn5 says:

      Could be muscle spasms and your jaw bone popped out?

    • votermom says:

      Jadzia, that sounds awful.
      If you can, tilt your head upwards a little bit (as if looking at someone taller than you) and drop your jaw as if in a yawn. Then try and close your mouth.

      • swanspirit says:

        What medications for pain have you tried? If you aren’t allergic, try ibuprofen at the maximum dose, 800mg, to alleviate the pain, and to relax muscles around the jaw, so if there is displacement, it can relax and slip back into place.

    There are some wonderful photos online of the snowfall in Athens, Greece two days ago. They had at least 2 feet of snow. Beautiful!

    • taw46 says:

      • lateblum says:

        That second photo is breathtaking. I’ve never been to Greece. My kids have, though. Is that second photo a pic of the Acropolis?

        • taw46 says:

          Yes, the Parthenon on the Acropolis. I have been to Greece about 12 times, I love it. Always going into Athens, but visiting many islands. We were very lucky on our first trip, we met someone from Athens. So every time we traveled there, we saw him and his friends and they took us all around Athens. I haven’t been in years, that was something I did in the 80s and 90s.

          • lateblum says:

            How wonderful for you! My son used to lead kayaking trips in Greece. He and dd#1 each went there in h.s. I got to send them and pick them up at the airport. lol

          • taw46 says:

            No fair, you should have gone with them! I was lucky, I worked for an airline and the tickets to Europe were cheap for us. That’s why I made so many trips.

    For real the gayest man in history beat the transgender on Jeopardy with easiest final question ever. What country ends in the letter h in English. She/he didn’t even have an answer. Are you kidding me. I have watched her run because I wanted to get a sense of who she is. I was intrigued that she/he processed questions. A lot of Jeopardy has the answer in the clue. I am usually to slow. She paused and got all the answers. I enjoyed trying to figure out how she figured out. What country ends in the letter H. For real. I feel like I was duped by watching her. Is it a stretch to think a game show would play woke. She was beaten by a gay guy wearing outlandish glasses. Like not even Sex in the City fashion. He was screaming gay. What r the odds a 40 day winner could not come up with Bangladesh. I even thought as the music played and they wrote answers this is too easy must be a trick. Nope Bangladesh. Look me in the eye and tell me a person who made it 40 days on the most competitive game show didn’t get the easiest question like EVER. The guy who beat her was so gay. I was watching with my mom who dislikes homos. She mostly stays silent cause well I am gay and we have the brat. She had to say this guy is too much. I don’t argue anymore. I also couldn’t argue. I had no issue with this, from my perspective, but this man was trumpeting who he is. I am fine with that but but but but. I have no idea

    • swanspirit says:

      My best guess, was, that Schneider thought of Bangladesh, but then dismissed it, as not being in the top ten most populated. I loved the little guy who won. He is at least authentic.

    A web site in India will sell you the drugs to fight covid. I followed the link from Instagram. Amoxidrops for my kitties are made in India. Some of my medicated eye drops were made in India.

      • lyn5 says:

        The United States should have given everyone kits like this. Mexico City did test and treat– up to 75% avoided hospitalization.

        • lyn5 says:

          Detail: Fifty thousand people in Mexico City were given treatment kits and up to 75 percent avoided hospitalization.

        • lyn5 says:

          Won’t send it to the United States. A prescription is needed. Grrrrr.

        • taw46 says:

          I will never forget when the left fought against treatment, starting with hydroxychloroquine. All because they hated Trump. They didn’t care if people died, still don’t.

          • lyn5 says:

            I hate them all. Half a million people didn’t have to die.

          • elliesmom says:

            I don’t think it had as much to do with Trump as we’ve been led to believe.

          • lateblum says:

            Somebody, my comment ⬇️ about my family was in response to taw, not to your comment doubting the generalization that the rejection of HCQ was a reaction to Trump. It is merely my own personal story, nothing else. 💕

          • lateblum says:

            My BIL immediately called me a “Trump apologist” when I naively asked him what he thought about using HCQ (when my dtr was sick in the ltc facility with covid). He also stopped speaking to me and (I think) blocked my sister from receiving emails from me for nearly 2 years. He still screens her emails “so she doesn’t have to deal with the spam that she receives”. This was my first birthday that they called me since January 2020.
            I remain heartbroken and shocked that they so hated anyone that they would discount the possibility of saving lives and sever ties with family (me). I think my mother would be so shocked if she were alive.

          • lyn5 says:

            That’s so sad, lateblum.

          • Follow the money. Big Pharma makes boocoo scuteros off the not-vaccines, not so much off the old drugs. Big Pharma wants everybody to get 3-4 shots of not-vaccines. Even little kids. They have immunity from lawsuits so there will be no downside for them.
