Bummer if that thing went off (from the drafts)

Enjoying a day out after the hospital stay last week.

Enjoying a day out after the hospital stay last week.

Ever noticed how many people hang around discussion boards of every description watching for things they can tell other people NEVER to do?

NEVER play with matches! NEVER ride a bicycle with no brakes! NEVER point an acetylene torch at your face when you light it! NEVER try to get inside a tree shredder while it’s running!

I think there must be something about typing a command about never that feels validating, self-affirming. Telling people what they’ll either have better sense than to do anyway, or who will pay no attention and will do it anyway.

And the fact is, it could as easily be said in ways people might listen to because it wasn’t so offensive and presumptuously downtalking. How about, “Sure would be a big bummer for a person to get his hair caught in that fanbelt.” Something along those lines.

About the only response I can think of appropriate to the NEVER command is “NEVER say NEVER!”

====================================================
Hi folks, Jeanne here.  That was from the unpublished drafts files…although it’s still possible that it was published and I just didn’t find it. So if it sounds familiar, let me know and I’ll be more careful pulling things out this way. There are 945 published posts on this blog, so I suppose you could just hit “random” and find something entertaining.

Fact is, Old Jules has an unstable phone line right now and can’t keep a connection long enough for the internet. It’s difficult to talk to him for more than a few minutes, although the breaks in the connection get fairly predictable. There’s a lot of repeating and frustration involved with a five minute conversation. But he did approve my putting up this old draft and an update.

Yes, but how is he, you ask.  Well…he’s not in the hospital. He sounds real good.  He’s got almost zero energy.  Drinking Caisse’s tea. Blood oxygen level normal. Blood pressure fluctuating. Reading a lot, generally staying warm and fed. Trying not to get dehydrated or winded. Although he’s isolated, Gale and his neighbor check on him from time to time and some others of us call him frequently and freak out (me)  if for some reason he doesn’t answer the phone (usually it’s on the charger).
I suspect it was pneumonia that caused things to deteriorate to the point where he went to the hospital. While treating him for that, they found other stuff to alert him about, and he’s tackling those in order of importance as he sees it.
A couple of us are standing by to take care of the cats if he decides to, or needs to, go back in for the rest of the recommended testing. Gale is out of town on a fairly frequent basis, so we are trying to make sure some satisfactory solution is found for them. I would just drive down there and get them, but 800 miles doesn’t allow for him to get them back easily when things settle down, so that’s not the first choice.
So basically, he’s resting a lot and trying to get his energy back, and I’m preoccupied with keeping tabs on him and passing on updates as needed.
When I can keep my head on straight, I’ll see if I can’t pull some posts out of the drafts from time to time, but I think my own blog is on hiatus for now.
Thanks, C.P., for sending the photo from last week.
And thanks again, everyone,  for all your kind thoughts.

Representive democracy, selective breeding and the US Constitution

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a read.

The wise men who framed the US Constitution knew all about how power, wealth and decadence caused every generation of aristocracy, every generation of human being born to power and wealth was weaker, lazier, stupider, more arrogant and shiftless than the previous one. 

They knew, those men writing the Constitution, the time would come when the White House and both houses of the US Congress would be filled with the descendants of black slaves.  Because they recognized the only alpha-males left in some future time would be those same black descendants of slavery.  That was obvious to them.  They knew representative democracy was the only way they could assure that when blacks outnumbered whites they’d be able to bloodlessly emerge as the dominant power.

Of course, they didn’t know about Hispanics and other prolific minorities, but they had the general idea.  It was a tough, courageous decision because all of them were white.  But they knew there’d come a time when their own progeny were a herd of worthless, stupid, lazy followers and worshipers of anything resembling an alpha male, no matter what ethnicity.

History proved them wise.  Football was the first hint the dream of the forefathers was coming true, followed by rap music and population explosions in ethnic ghettos.  The long-awaited takeover of the US government was moving right along in accordance with the plan of the founding fathers.  And concurrently with similar emergence of alpha-types from minorities in other cultural fields.

It’s on the doorstep now.  Finally ethnic minorities will soon be in a position to assume the reins of power, wealth, prosperity and government.

Patriots and believers in representative democracy should be preparing for the victory parades and celebrations.  The sooner a full slate of ethnic minority candidates is offered up in a general election the more rapidly the aspirations of the founding fathers will be fulfilled.

Finally our great nation will once again be run by alpha males and females, same as music and sports.  Rejoice!  Up the [r]evolution!

We white males can finally get back to getting our hands dirty doing the grunt work, stoop-labor and heavy lifting we degenerate betas are best suited for, aside from toadying to alphas.  And white females can try to find open minded alpha ethnics to procreate with without being criticized.

Cheated by Mexicans – Taking what’s rightfully ours

Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places – Johnny Lee 1980

Hi readers. Thanks for coming by.

We’ve got all these wars and troops all over the place but what the hell do we ever gain by it? Sheeze. Vietnamese farm fed fish in the grocery stores? Korean made television sets? Afghanistan heroin? Was it worth it? The only worthwhile thing we ever got from Vietnam and Korea were Vietnamese and Korean women who married GIs and improved the US breeding stock. We’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places.

Fact is, with all these recently discovered shale oil deposits recently discovered making us the most oil-rich real estate on the planet, it’s time we corrected an error made in 1848 by our sainted ancestors. When they snagged that little chunk of real estate from Mexico and brought the army home they had no idea about shale oil deposits. They left Mexico with way the hell more land than they needed.

Those Mexicans hadn’t learned their lesson yet about selfishly hoarding so much land they didn’t need and had no rightful claim to. Right here on our doorstep, land they cheated us out of by not telling us about oil shale and what might be under all that land we allowed them to keep. And who knows what other stuff they’ve got under there they aren’t telling us about? Stuff we might need later.

Those troops in Afghanistan aren’t getting us a damned thing except planeloads of heroin. The trouble with that war is that it’s not visionary. It’s too far from home and eventually everything the US gains there will have gone into the veins of a bunch of addicts, aside from a few Swiss bank accounts of politicians and military gurus.

We US citizens are sick of being cheated by Mexico and Mexicans sneaking in here stealing our grunt labor jobs nobody wants, sneaking around having valuable mineral resources they didn’t tell us about last time US troops had to go down there and kick ass.

This time we need to do it right. This time we need to take the whole damned place so’s we don’t have to do it again. Move the US Border Patrol down to Yucatan where it can do some good keeping Guatemala where it belongs.

Making money the old fashioned way

Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read this morning.

I saw a bumper sticker in town yesterday in the parking lot of the last Gibson’s store in existence. 20 year old beat-to-hell pickup with the sticker, “I make money the old fashioned way – I work for it“.

Judging by the truck, I’m guessing he’s probably telling the truth.

Inside the store when I went to pay for my purchase the cashier held the bill up to the light, then used a black felt tip pen on it and squinted at it again. When she decided it was okay I asked whether they get any phonies.

Lots of them.” She shrugged and counted out my change, which I didn’t examine closely. That’s trust.

The fact is there are lots of old fashioned ways to make money. Working has always been the least efficient method, but it’s widely praised by people who have a lot of it by inheritance, politics, graft, bailouts, handouts, subsidies, and prostitution. Someone has to do the grunt work or the whole system of economics falls apart.

Fact is, someone has to ring the cash registers, clean out the sewer lines, change the oil on cars, sit behind desks doing meaningless, boring, dead-end chores all day or it would become downright inconvenient for people who made their money the various other old fashioned ways.

And those hamburger flippers and sewer plant operaters need to be able to find something about it they can construe as a virtue, rather than just being fools and useful zombies drawing lousy pay for essential work to keep things running.

Old Sol: “Just mood swings. It happens. These gender changes don’t help.”

Hi readers. Thanks for coming by for a read.

I’ve got a lot of questions for Old Sol, but I have to take them slowly, easily.

Me: So, what’s the deal on all this Middle East extremism? That seems to be escalating.

Old Sol: Some celestial object deities have a delicate touch, some don’t. I’m more into playing Chopsticks than a piano sonata. I get up on the wrong side of the bed and things happen. French Revolution. Russian Revolution. No harm intended. It just happens.

Me: So all these Muslims and Zionist extremists are fired up because you let one of your moods get away from you?

Old Sol: Partly. Of course, I didn’t tie up some loose ends a while back. I had it on my list to do something decisive so those people weren’t running around thinking they’re Chosen People. But other things came up and it slipped my mind.

Me: But what about those Muslims? That whole thing seems to be on the upswing?

Old Sol: You’ve got to understand. Back then things were chaotic. No sooner got the Roman Gods put to sleep and the Jews scattering than Christians and Muslims popped up and started fighting one another. It isn’t as though putting out fires is all I have to do. I’ve got these other planets, moons, comets, asteroids to keep doing their jobs. And that damned Jupiter.

Me: Jupiter?

Old Sol: I swear, between Jupiter and Saturn it’s a wonder I find time to do anything else. All those moons and rings, posturing and strutting, throwing out magnetic fields from hell to breakfast.

Me: So what are you going to do with the Zionists and Muslims?

Old Sol: They’re just going to have to take care of one another for a while. I’ve got this hormone thing. You people in the US are the new Chosen People, but I think you’d be better off staying out of it. You’re the best I’ve got, and I’d like to see some land left down there people can live on once all the ice melts. Not much chance of that in the Middle East or downwind from the north Pacific.

Me: Thanks for the wakeup call.

All dressed up and no place to go. Chernobyl ghost town 2008

The USSR was gearing up for the May Day celebration and Chernobyl was all decorated, even a Farris wheel. Then Chernobyl nuke blew. Even though it was a miniscule event compared to the one in Japan, it’s a ghost town today. Has been a ghost town since April 27, 1986.

Lots of pages and photos of a 2008 visit:

Witch doctors as an alternative to everything else

Hi readers. Thanks for coming by.

20 years ago I quit going to doctors because they never told me anything I wanted to hear. So I bought some books about vitamin and mineral approaches to staying healthy, learned about a number of other non-mainstream alternatives including diet, exercize, and metaphysical healing techniques. Considering my age I’m one hell of a lot healthier today than I was when I was going to physicians and letting them tell me all the ways I was likely to die and what I needed to let them cut off or out to keep me living.

I’m not trying to sell you on the idea you ought to follow this route. Although, if the docs have given up on you and sent you home to die you might find a pleasant surprise waiting for you if you should look into it.

But I’m writing this to tell you about something Jeanne came across and passed on to me.

http://serrapeptasefor.me/the-role-of-natural-enzymes-called-serrapeptase-in-scar-tissue/

The Role Of Natural Enzymes Called Serrapeptase in Scar Tissue

Scar TissueNatural enzymes are beneficial to our body because they eliminate and prevent fibrosis which is also known as scar tissue. As we get older, fibrosis becomes one of the main factors of sudden death. During our 20′s, the production of enzymes in the body start to reduce and by the time we reach the age of 40, the enzyme level becomes too low. As a matter of fact, those who are suffering from cystic fibrosis do not produce natural enzymes anymore, making their bodies weaker and less immune to sickness. This will eventually result to the formation of scar tissue and the shrinking of the lungs. Children with this type of disease will not be able to withstand the side effects thus will die before they even turn 20 years old.
If the enzyme production will continue to diminish, the body will not be able to control the abundant deposits of fibrin from simple wounds such as cuts and scratch. This will penetrate inside the blood vessels and the internal organs which can develop into deadly illnesses like fibrocystic breast disease, adhesions, uterine fibroids and endometriosis. Both men and women are affected with this condition although studies show that the female species are more prone. Women develop arterial sclerotic plaque that invades the body system and makes the organs reduce in size. Over time, the organs will stop functioning while the patient suffers from pain and visible scars.
The only way to control the scar tissue formation is to replace the lost enzymes. Doing so is useful to avoid the issues related to the absence of natural enzymes and abundance of fibrin. Studies have also proven that the addition of enzymes in the body system can actually reverse the harsh effects of fibrosis. Old scars are unbelievably gone after natural enzymes are added into the body. Scar tissues from pulmonary fibrosis, surgical wounds, kidney fibrosis, and even the nasty keloids will be gone. Although medical practitioners from Asia and Europe have been using this method to their patients for more than a decade already, doctors from the US are just starting to discover its benefits.
Serrapeptase scar tissue and nattokinase are some of the best natural enzymes for the removal of scar tissues. On the other hand, if you are looking for the most effective defense against pancreatic cancer tumors, Chymotrypsin and pancreatin are considered as the best option.
Serrapeptase is also an ultra powerful enzyme which can only be found from a group of bacteria present in the silkworm’s intestines. This bacterium is called Serratia Marcescens E1. It enables the full development of the silkworm by dissolving its cocoon. In addition, Serratia also reduces the scar tissue by healing and improving the inflammation on the skin.
As the healing process is going on, Serrapeptase aids in digesting the dead tissue while the living tissues are preserved. Serrapeptase is also beneficial in dissolving unwanted scar tissues namely blood clots, cysts, fibrosis, and anterial plaque. Sinusitis is another illness which can be cured by Serrapeptase scar tissue. It is used as an anti-inflammatory agent against excessive mucous secretion, fibrocystic breasts, and varicose veins. Most importantly, scientists believe that Serrapeptase scar tissue plays an essential role in protecting the body against cancer cells and layers of tumors. It fights cancer by strengthening the immune system.
In conclusion, Serrapeptase scar tissue is not only effective to patients of lung diseases but it is also beneficial in clearing out the cancer cells within the body. Removing those dead tissues is a big help for our bodies to cope with numerous diseases. Natural healing process is crucial because it has better results than artificial treatment methods.

Stuff sounds as though it has some potential for some of the things I live with. Such as a goozle half-high with scar tissue from stomach acid reflux used to try to bleed me dry before Prilosec came along. Maybe even high blood pressure. I’m going to try it. So’s Jeanne, because of the scar tissue giving her fits recovering from the broken wrist and surgery a couple of months ago.

If you’re interested enough to want to know what people who’ve used it thought about it, and what they used it in hopes of helping, Amazon Customer Reviews might be a good place to start.

But hell, if you’d rather go to a doctor by all means, do it. He’s convinced he’s got all the answersand this isn’t one of them.
