remember when I was in Grenada had roommate from Lebanon.  He was a Christian.

when muslims massacred Christians he told me there would be revenge.

there was within from what I recall not long later.

That was one reason he worked hard to get to the US
I looked him up.
he did great a kidney specialist in Pennsylvania

".Yawn."

agree
not holding my breath; whatever comes out before election
MSM will ignore it or have Larry Lib Tribe come on and say this has all been debunked a conspiracy theory or right propaganda from a rogue AG.

or if continues past election
Biden will of course kill it.

"Pres. Trump did not go to rep Lewis' service, I am told and told and told"

in my view he was right not to attend

first Lewis was a fervent militant Democrat always opposed to anything Republican and had TDS trying to impeach Trump from day one

so now Trump should let bygones be bygones and go to honor him at his funeral?

plus of course he would not have been welcomed , if invited at all, criticized for being a hypocrite and had his picture shown all over the media to be butt of the jokes seething anger

and then he would have had to sit through Obama's radical political speech.

https://www.statnews.com/2020/07/31/covid-19-vaccine-amazingly-close-why-am-i-so-worried/

I don't know if risk is "quite likely" as this author states
but it is possible in my view as a nonacademic not specialist primary doctor.

remember swine flu vaccine that causes neurologic disorder called Guillian Barre?

that said I feel Trump's support of a vaccine as soon as possible has unlocked American ingenuity
I would trust a vaccine from China less........

Requirements for Dispensing or Selling Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine in Ohio

July 30, 2020
 
As a result of the feedback received by the medical and patient community and at the request of Governor DeWine, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has withdrawn proposed rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code. Therefore, prohibitions on the prescribing of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in Ohio for the treatment of COVID-19 will not take effect at this time.

 This will allow the Pharmacy Board to reexamine the issue with the assistance of the State Medical Board of Ohio, clinical experts, and other stakeholders to determine appropriate next steps.

Licensees should be aware that emergency rule 4729-5-30.2 is no longer effective and the requirements of that rule, including the inclusion of a diagnosis code on any prescription for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, are no longer applicable.

".My understanding was that he was given 3 months to live 8 months ago, terminal cancer.

Any evidence masks work to stop the spread of viruses?"

I. did not hear that tho I recently read he had advanced colon cancer in ~ 2006 which if true he lived a longer time then I ever heard of with stage 4 colon cancer.

--------

We have used masks forever to stop spread of respiratory virus spread
not new
my opinion is when infectious disease experts all come out and say - don't bother with masks (and now saint fauci - adding goggles)
  it would be foolish to not wear them and recommend them.  Trump was just being a hard ass.

   if for no other reason he would have been smarter to simply say. we need to get the economy moving again but we need to do in safest manner possible - wear masks and keep distance - would that not have been politically far wiser than doing the opposite  berating these potentially life saving measures ?  As for me he looked like a dope for preaching against it, never setting an example by wearing a mask, and some governors going a long with this strategy and now seeing what we are seeing in those areas? 

somehow this virus is spreading from person to person - no coincidence we see beaches full of people and the numbers going up.
until we better understand how this happens ( one person getting and spreading to family members , gastrointestinal spread?) just don't be reckless and carefree about it  -  isn't that what we all expect from a President?

he, and I, and other  supporters of him are all paying the price now in his now reduced prospects
and for the course of this country .

Politics & Religion / GG loves the Chinese
« on: July 27, 2020, 07:00:51 AM »
Doug,

You don't want to read the latest Gilder Report ( yes he is back )

he still a bull on Qualcomm
but also Chinese companies
He is betting against the US and on China

seems convinced some of their technology is better and it is only a matter of time we adopt it . The Chinese will eventually embrace democracy and capitalism
 and we will be mired in climate change identity politics regulation high taxes and the rest

he predicts (probably rightly so) China will blow past us
I would love to see a debate with GG and Gordon Chang:

From wikipedia:

"Collapse of China
Chang has said that the Chinese government would collapse in 2012 and 2016.[7][8] Chang also says that China is a "new dot-com bubble", adding that the rapid growth by China is not supported by various internal factors such as decrease in population growth as well as slowing retail sales.[9] In a separate interview, he remarked that China achieved its 149.2 percent of its current trade surplus with the United States through "lying, cheating, and stealing" and that if China decided to realize its threat that had been expressed since August 2007 to sell its US Treasuries, it would actually hurt its own economy which is reliant on exports to the United States; the economy of the United States would be hurt by a sell-off of Treasuries, causing the United States to buy less from China, which would in turn hurt the Chinese economy.[10]

Since 2001 Chang has made predictions that the Chinese government will eventually collapse.[11][12] Shen Dingli, director of the Center for American Studies at Fudan University, wrote that Chang's predictions "collapse his own credibility."[13] John Tamny of RealClearMarkets has criticized Chang's predictions and analyses about China, stating that Chang possesses "limited knowledge of simple economics" and that "Chang’s feel for China has been impressively incorrect for close to twenty years, and if his latest commentary is at all indicative of his grasp of what authors economic growth, Chang’s batting average on the matter of China isn’t about to improve."[3"

https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/07/museums-platform-for-art-not-social-protest/

"My take is that museum staff who want a museum system “founded on an anti-racist, abolitionist, and decolonial ethics of care” don’t really want to work in the art world. They want to protest. They want museums to become advocacy groups for big social issues, but that’s not what an art museum does. These staff belong in community organizing or special-interest lobbying.

What I’m saying is that they need to be canned.

Museums have a specific mission: the care of art and its interpretation and the edification of the public. The people sending out these letters don’t care about art, exhibitions, scholarship, or the public. They don’t care that most people come for contemplation, refreshment, civic pride, arts education, or the love of beauty. They see the museum as a platform for pontification."

Exactly ;  keep your political views private and just do your darn job.

"Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front"

as though they are not free.

same as communism - liberate us so that we can be controlled by a single party - the democrats .

their speak of justice for Floyd is a total con job.

there is something about their self identities that these kids (who apparantly have low self esteem or the other way narcissists ) that they feel the lure to do this.
There is clearly something pathological about all this from a psychiatric point of view
none of it really makes sense .

as for my post above where I posted high school losers I did not mean people who did not go to colleg , i was referring to those who were outcasts in high school.  being a revolutionary makes them feel 'in', part of the group, accepted , justified , self actuation maybe .

perhaps I am off base, perhaps it is simply peer pressure
this is what they hear about in school the social media the cable ......

trying to figure this all out.

for this for decades - since Reagan . 

"every school day and every news day and in every level of government down to the Library Board, every network and every social platform, Liberals and Leftists organize and march forward with their agenda"

we only have influence in  a small fraction of the media
we can scream as loud as we want on our few outlets
the Democrats are in bed with the teachers unions (and the majority of teachers - who like most government workers are Democrats)
the universities are loading up on foreign born minorities and the gays and other woke tribes who are all brainwashed , not with freedom for all, but identity politics

"What is the message?  Economic freedom, not statism, is what lifts people out of poverty and into prosperity. "

unfortunately , Trump , even if he speaks the speak talks the talk , he has along with the Leftists made this all about hiim.
because in his mind it is all about his personal scorecard

frankly I am a total pessimist
   these  people will have to learn the hard way - one day they will really wake up and we will be Venezuela and at least some of them
   will think - what have I wrought.  others like AOC will simply vie to be the inside people who will control the rest of us.
   I just don't see anyway out.

Republicans tried to unify around Trump but he is not the spokes person we thought he might become ( or at least me)
   because every time he speaks half the country only seethes with anger at anything he says.  They don't listen to his words they see HIM.

Addendum :

of course it is not Trumps fault - as there was no one else really

can anyone imagine if we had Romney or McCain or Jeb
they don't fight at all - just play nice and pretend to be gentlemen while we keep getting smashed

Trump as far as I can tell was our best shot.
But his personality got in the way with the people who can vote either way who decide the elections etc.
as for the Left ALL Republicans are Nazis.

praying for miracle in NJ

Could someone like Hawley become our spokesperson - ?

William A. Galston. a Clinton Gore mobster:

"The vice president shouldn’t establish an alternative power center, as Dick Cheney did during George W. Bush’s first term."

yeah right .

"  These considerations should lead Mr. Biden away from mayors and governors, and toward individuals with extensive records of leadership at the national level. Selecting a vice-presidential nominee widely regarded as unready to assume the presidency would be the Biden campaign’s first significant unforced error."

Perhaps - gag - Hillary   :wink:

Who ever it is it won't be a unifier of the nation as Biden claims he wants to be - like all Dems - we want to be bipartisan and uniters - (as long we get as much liberal policies passed thru)
