General Discussion, Wednesday, March 1, 2023

On March 1, 1971, a bomb exploded in the U.S. Capitol. Now that’s real insurrection!

Nobody was injured, although the bomb caused about $300,000 in damages to the building. A group calling itself the Weather Underground claimed credit for the bombing, which was done in protest of the ongoing U.S.-supported Laos invasion.

Weather Underground. Hey – wasn’t that the organization that Obama’s buddy Bill Ayers belonged to?

    Rare Painting Once Traded for a Grilled Cheese in the 1970s Sells for $272,548
    July 20, 2022 – By Julia Diddy –

    This epic fable of food, art, and fate began in Canada at an Ontario restaurant called The Villa in the early 1970s. Irene and her husband Tony, the owners of the restaurant at the time, struck up a friendship with local artist John Kinnear and his wife, Audrey.

    Afternoon All. Expected more snow, but it never came. Suns out even though it is mostly white overcast. Just got my electric bill for last month and it was $98. I am so grateful, but really surprised it is that low.

    I am back to looking for another apartment, something closer to my kids. There isn’t really much within my budget, but I will keep looking. At least I am now on the waiting list for the place I wanted to begin with. And, if the weather ever settles down, I want to get down there to check the place out. The lady I have been riding to church with fell Monday and hurt her back. We had planned on taking a tour. of this town so I could get more familiar with where things are. Now that is on hold.

    Oh, well, life goes on. Hope you are all well.

    Ok. I feel the same way she does about both the federal government and illegal aliens and the coddling of same. However…..if her children sleep on the train tracks and get run over by a train, is she going to sue the train people?

    If her children play on the freeway and get run over by rush hour traffic, is she going to sue the county/state for allowing rush hour traffic to driver over 10mph?

    If her children, at a young age, get into the Tide (before there had to be “pods”, for crying out loud), is she going to sue Tide?

    There need to be, apparently, signs all over everywhere that say, “Don’t eat fentanyl.”

    And no, I did not watch the video. I’m just really OVER the idea and the deep, deep conviction that no one is ever individually responsible for anything anymore.

    The only way I would ever be killed by fentanyl is if a semi-truck loaded to the max with fentanyl were to take a corner too fast on Hwy 99, in the lane right next to me, tip over on to my old car and smush me.

    The foundational reasons for all the fentanyl deaths have more to do with individual choices than they do with the illegal aliens.

    I mentioned it a couple weeks ago, I think: there’s a big sign along I-5 between here and Portland that says, in big black block letters, ‘YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR NOXIOUS WEEDS”. Maybe the fentanyl signs could say, “YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO AVOID EATING FENTANYL”.

    End of rant.

      Several months ago as I was leaving the doctor’s office I encountered a man on crutches, and as we both had obvious ankle problems, we had a Sam all conversation, as people do.

      He looked to be about fifty maybe, strong, and appeared to be fit, and very healthy. He had suffered a very bad break two weeks before, from his description worse than mine. He said they were giving him only over the counter medication for pain, and he was desperate.

      They were limiting my pain medications strictly two years ago when I had my surgery, and they gave me less and less with each following surgery on my knees. I got by with a lot less than even what they gave me because I hate pain meds and I can usually get by on less than what’s prescribed. But when I broke that ankle if they hadn’t given me narcotics for a couple of months I honestly don’t know how I would have made it.

      So now, I think of that man, and others, and I pray for them and hope their pain is very short term.

      My point is this. There are many people you can read about who have had their very needed pain medication cut off because of addicts and out of control narcotics addictions. I’ve read about people who have lived for a long time with horrible pain, and they have a close relationship with healthcare professionals who worked with them to make the pain bearable. Suddenly the federal government made their medication disappear.

      Why is it that normal people usually have to pay the big cost of screwed up decisions in a percentage of the population and the government thinks it is okay, always okay, to punish the innocent and try to protect the dumbasses?

        Yeah–overlapping issues. Pain medication, per se, no matter how strong it is–yup, I’m all for that. It is needed.

        I react badly to people who are not among those you describe (including the pain you have experienced), but are among those who are forever excusing what they themselves have done and don’t like the consequences. Even then, of course, I may do well to extend mercy. Some days I do it better than others.

        There is no reason in my thought, either, to punish the innocent to protect the dumbasses. None whatsoever. I didn’t intend for that idea to be part of my rant; and, of course, that’s exactly why I need to watch my mouth and my fingers when I rant.

        Same as with legal gun owners. I had the same experience with my broken kneecap. Exactly 2 days pain meds, then – zip. Even when I was in the ER there was some doped up woman running around in there buck naked, high on God knows what. But people like US pay for it – your broken whatever be damned we gotta make sure no extra drugs get out of here. Another interesting example is nurses/attendants stealing pain meds. My DH and I had that happen with his neck surgery. His day nurse was pocketing them – I watched her (and later reported it to his doctor, who didn’t seem to give a damn, nor did he replace the medication.) Stupid bastards, all.
