    The democrats GreatWhite Hope ain’t doing too well.

    The Killers have started their speaking tour. Sitting about a mile apart form each other on the stage, talking to an arena that appears to be at least half empty.

    The theme of their tour is that Trump is an immoral greedy SOB who doesn’t care about America or Americans. Such irony..

    The shrinking Hillary had her obligatory coughing jag. Bill found 3 dates in the audience. A goat. a llama and buzzard.

    Question for Czarina and/or Tundra because fo their medical knowledge. Hillary seems to be collapsing, her body structure from her shoulder to her hips is almost curling in on itself. Could this be a medical condition?

    My guess is that the devil whom she worship is eating her alive.

    The Bill and Hillary show! Power couple kick off 13-city paid speaking tour in CANADA where bank executive lobbed questions at them in half-empty arena, as they accuse Trump of being part of a Saudi ‘cover-up’

      A lack of exercise or muscle weakness can cause tightness in the hips, which makes the upper body to pitch forward.

    • The Tundra PA says:

      Given her age, it’s nearly certain that she has osteoarthritis with an attendant kyphosis (“dowager’s hump”). But I also firmly believe, as Dr. Ted Noel has documented extensively, that she has Parkinson’s Disease, and has had it for over a decade. Later-stage Parkinson’s requires bracing the upper back to prevent pitching forward. And her documented “seizure” type moments are the side effects of levodopa, the drug used to treat Parkinson’s. Also her campaign team’s utter lack of concern when she fell over and was pitched in the van like a side of beef at the 2016 commemoration of Sept. 11th. They knew exactly what was going on, and what to do about it; so they took her to Chelsea’s condo, not to an ER.

      He did a number of 5-minute podcasts before the 2016 election on various aspects of Hilary’s health which can be found here:

        Thanks Tundra!

        They knew exactly what was going on, and what to do about it; so they took her to Chelsea’s condo, not to an ER.

        I heard a secret service agent say this exact thing that this was a normal occurrence for Hillary or they would have b-lined to the designated ER.

        Maybe she will collapse in on herself and disappear. The day can’t come soon enough.

      Hillary looks collapsed. Is she noticibly shorter? Two years ago she was wearing a body brace. I have a friend whose spine collapsed, & she went from 5’11” to 5’5″ in one year. She’s a rcovering alcoholic, was taking meds for osteoporosis but stopped, and does not have Pakinsons. This collapse might also explain Hillary coughing. When the esophagus is curved or displaced there can be an increase in gastroesophageal reflux which irritates the vocal cords. I find her voice to be clear and strong, not that of a typical Parkinsons patient unless she or he actively and daily completes a vocal execise program to maintain a loud, strong voice. The suggestion that she has had Deep Brain Stimulation placed surgically to reduce symptoms doesn’t fit with my experience, which is that voice and speech get worse while limb and body movements get smoother after DBS.

        I tried comparing pictures of her standing next to Bill from 20 years ago to today and I don’t think she is noticeably shorter. Hillary’s boozing is well known and I am pretty sure that there are credible reports that she is an alcoholic.

        She reminds me of Ruth Ginsburg like she could just curl in on herself and roll away.

        Osteoporosis would explain the wrist braces and foot braces.

        Thank you Czarina πŸ™‚ !

    Quick report on report. They absolutely agree…no add, adhd, autism. Possible sensory issues so they recommend OT also. Will do 2 OT evals….med dr and theirs. Does not qualify for iep. Behavior inconsistencies out of classroom. And smart. They liked him a lot.Deficiencies in math and a couple minor places appear to be either he just doesnt want to do it or age related. Working on it.
    Still will have outburst in class but waiti g for ot referral.
    His teacher in her eval made him sound like a drooling moron. They even said they dont see that. Needs more structured socialization.
    The school REALLY REALLY wanted an iep diagnosis.
    For now, I did a silent “yes” to myself.

        Our insurance covers a psychologist assessment, which was 4 hours. Her assessment generally met the same scoring profile as the public school district. They both recommend ot. I also saw a lcswmft who said she did not see extreme behavior.

          If you are satisfied with the results, go with the occupational therapy, & keep doing all the great things you are doing at home. Everyone does not get the most out of standard school programs, b/c everyone does not fit or cannot be wedged in. Good teachers can make a huge difference; teachers who do the minimum or have no imagination will try to get the kid out of their classrooms or will make the kid miserable. If it works for you, volunteer at the school so you are visible & appreciated, and give lots of praise for what anyone there does well: the “more flies with honey” principle.

      I have said this for years, and I stand by it. Teachers, as is human nature in any demanding profession, want to teach the easy kids, no behavior problem kids who sit and read quietly and do every assignment perfectly. I don’t blame them, but it cannot happen.

      Just because a child is harder to teach, or learns differently does not mean they should be harrassed and treated as different. In my son’s case, he was diagnosed with ADHD, and he did have specific problems.

      Other children just don’t fit the cookie cutter mold that schools have for kids. Often that is good. I’ll give you a personal example.

      I was that perfect child, partly from intelligence and disposition, and partly from fear and severe lack of self confidence due to my home life. I didn’t have enough childhood – what is the word- joy, exuberance, hope, you pick one, to act out. As I grew older and was increasingly recognized as the “smart kid” that became my reason for existence and I was competitive about it. I was the valedictorain at graduation, went on to do quite well in college, although I stopped just short of graduating.

      My husband was awful in school, hated every minute of it. When we were in high school together I read an essay he wrote about his life. I will never forget it. It started out “I was a happy little boy until I went to school.”

      He barely graduated, not because of intelligence, but I suspect the same issues my son had. We went to a technical high school where he studied welding. His father taught him a lot about mechanics, welding, pipe fitting, and more, and he went on to teach himself hydraulics, and electrical stuff as well.

      When he was 26 years old he went to his boss, the owner of the shipyard he works at, and told him he wanted to redesign the hydraulic system on the boats they were building. He convinced his boss that the salesman, who had an engineering degree, had put in a lot of unneccessary parts to pad his commission. His boss had confidence in him, over the strenuous objections of the sales rep who told him the boat would never steer.

      That boat performed better in steering and maneuvering than any previous one and the pilots were thrilled.

      The point of this story is this. I was the scholar and just about any parent would have been more proud of me. I can usually learn most things someone else thinks up.

      My husband can think up creative things outside the box. He is a problem solver with extraordinary skill at tackling something in a new way, a way that almost everyone else says will never work. His boss recognized that invaluable skill in him when he was very young, and he has brought many projects to my husband over the years that were either supposed to be impossible, or prohibitively expensive.

      The best thinkers are very often not the best students. Always put thinking ahead of report cards and teacher’s happiness.

      I realize I described two severe ends of the scale of learning, but you see the point of it, I am sure.

        Yes I do. And having guidance and wisdom from other sources with real experience is extremely valuable and appreciated. The school could still have him leave but at least I know he isnt incapable of l earning.

          I suspect quite the opposite. I’d bet he’s capable of learning more, and differently, than schools are prepared to teach.

          When we worked one on one with my son I would do it slowly and methodically. He never did well with me. My husband did it rapid and in very challenging ways and he was happy and usually did well. My husband tried to tell me I was boring him to death. He was right.

            I was told he wont do so hot in soccer or tball bc its too slow paced by his p.e. teacher. Maybe youre on to something. I also teach him in a way that is indirect to help him learn more than 1 thing at a time and it frequently works better. I really want to see what ot can do….

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
