“Jan. 6 committee blames Trump for ‘carnage’ at U.S. Capitol.” One person died directly from the riot, hardly carnage. That person was killed by public official/guard. So why don’t they knock the shit off. They are doing it to distract people from the real problems, rampant inflation, gas prices, open borders and crime in our once great cities. As we speak it is spreading to a community near you. When will it end?

Well I am back home from my surgery, It is over 24 hours since the procedure and I feel a lot better, the first 5 to 6 hours were a bitch, I must have walked five miles last night up and down the damn hotel hallway. The folks at Blossom Bariatrics are consummate professionals. They really have the gastric sleeve surgical procedure down pat, not to mention they threw in a hernia repair for good measure. They said I might be able to not only get rid of my blood pressure meds but my omeprazole as well. That would be great. Everybody is nice even the limo drivers, and they are trained and instructed in the basics of the procedure as well, plus they all have BLS and have been trained in what to look for if you are having problems. The have a contract with the Hyatt Hotel in the Silverton compound. It is a very nice hotel, the rooms are large and the bathrooms are very modern and functional. Overall a very good experience. Now lets see the fat melt away.

Why does the FED always want to raise the interest rate to help the economy? Who does it help, certainly not the poor to middle man, because everything we borrow money to purchase costs us more. If you are trying to sell your house, you have to reduce the price so that people can afford it, so you are losing money there as well. The banks and loan companies make out because of the higher interest rates. Right now who has the money? The answer is only the international conglomerates who are surprisingly enough are the ones buying up houses at an accelerated rate, which will only continue as the prices drop. Every time we have a crash in the housing market and people lose their houses, the end result is that fewer and fewer low to middle income people are home owners. Eventually we will return to a feudal society where only the rich and noble born are landowners and the rest of us are renters. If anyone knows their history you know that those times were not very good unless you were noble or wealthy or were the leaders of the organized churches. You may say that this is a simplistic view and could never happen, well my answer to that is who knows. Changes are certainly happening and they are not going to be for the better.

The Fed is wrong, they need to figure out what caused the inflation to begin with. If you want to lower it, increase production of items so that the prices will go down. By increasing the interest rates the only thing you are guaranteed in doing is causing a recession. Increase the production of oil, so the price will go down and the cost of goods will go down as well. Stop spending over the budget, we need to balance it and yes start paying it off. Which means stopping all the foreign bail-outs. Think about it, if we don’t have enough money for our budget and we give money to other countries in aid, we are borrowing that money. Let those countries borrow their own damn money. We can’t take care of the world. Let China suck it up for a while. What have we received for all the money that we have given to these countries? They all hate us. When someone is beholden to you for their very existence, they eventually start to resent you. Case in point, does France really like us? We bailed them out out of two world wars, and yet they barely tolerate us.

True, the profit margin is higher now, but if the price is too high who will buy it. I posted an excerpt from a book I read a little while ago about luxury yachts and taxes. It is one thing to be price gouged for necessary items. You really have no choice, however I choose not to be gouged by luxury item prices. With the Fed increasing interest rates, what does it do to the company who wanted to expand on their fleet of vans or cars, or needed to replace their obsolete fleet of vehicles? How are they going to afford to buy them now? Not only is the price is up, but so is the interest rate for the loans. How many people will be laid off with a recession? Especially now with the country being flooded with cheap labor from third world countries. Biden et.al are not the team to fix the problem. They are trying to destroy the country, not fix it.

So they are going to change the name of Monkey Pox, can anyone say 1984?

People are saying that the drive to change the name of monkey pox to something else is by animal activist. I don’t think the monkeys give a shit. I think they would prefer if we stopped using them as lab animals. We all know they are trying to have it replace covid as the next big pandemic. I think they should wait and try again. They are really stretching this one.

At least we have some information about the formula issue. From Nationalgeographic.com:
“The bacterium behind the baby formula recall, Cronobacter sakazakii, is less well-known than other food-borne pathogens like E. coli or Salmonella, but it can wreak havoc in vulnerable populations like newborns or people with compromised immune systems.
“”When two infants died earlier this year after drinking bacteria-contaminated baby formula produced by Abbot Nutrition, the tragedy sparked a sweeping recall, eventually shutting down the company’s Michigan-based plant. Parents and caregivers—already squeezed by pandemic-related supply chain hiccups—scrambled to feed their babies. The deaths, and the shortage that followed, exposed weaknesses in the food safety system in the United States when pitted against C. sakazakii.
“Fortunately, infection with this “nasty little bug”—which kills between 50 and 80 percent of infected newborns—is relatively rare with just a handful of cases in the U.S. identified per year, says Amy Edwards, a pediatrician and associate medical director for infection control at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Ohio. In the 12 years Edwards has worked in neonatal intensive care, she’s encountered it five to 10 times. “But if you call me and tell me you’ve got a two-month-old whose culture is growing Cronobacter sakazakii, I’ll freak out a little bit,” she says. ‘It scares me more than E. coli does’.
“Despite its comparatively low profile and infection rates, C. sakazakii is common. “It’s in soil and in the environment,” Chapman says. The bacterium has also been detected in homes—including on countertops, air filters, and other surfaces. And although it’s infamously linked to powdered baby formula, now and in the past, the microbe has popped up in everything from fresh produce and herbal teas to sewer water.”

I find it amazing that so many people are defending the right to take a life, that protests are actually springing up around the country. Are they actually realizing what they are doing? The level of brainwashing that has taken place in this country is absolutely amazing. Besides the states that they are protesting in are the ones where nothing has changed.
I also find it amazing that if a pregnant women is killed, the assailant is charged with a double homicide, while that pregnant women can kill the same child with impunity.
This is an excerpt from Nature.com, about the reversal of Roe vs Wade. “Myers has estimated that, within a few months of Roe being overturned, 54% of US women seeking abortions will have to travel farther than they would have previously to reach their nearest abortion provider. For these women, travel distance will increase from about 58 kilometres (36 miles) on average to about 441 kilometres (274 miles) on average.” My heart bleeds, abortions should not be easy to get, they should make you think before you do them. People should should find it harder to get one then to go out and buy a pack of cigarettes. Why do they say that black people are incapable of practicing safe sex and birth control? They keep on mentioning them when it comes to abortions. I find this highly stereotypical and racist. Besides the local health clinics offer free condoms. How easy is that?

Was Francis Hopkinson the one who actually designed the original continental flag? In 1780 the Continental Congress was billed for the Great Seal and the flag of the United States. A bill they never paid. If that is true what an auspicious way for our country to start. We started in debt and now look at us.
