I really admire how the DNC went about preventing Bernie from winning Iowa last night! And hiding Biden falling off the cliff too!
I thought for sure they would blame the Russians but instead they blamed Iowa!
They certainly pulled the red carpet out from under Bernie!
The amazing thing is everybody deep down knows the DNC is out to get Bernie!
The only unknown part of this Dim soap opera is exactly how and when are they going to kill Bernie!
The Iowa Dem vote is hilarious!
Bernie got more votes but had to share them with everyone else!
That is what communism is all about! Sharing!
That way nobody loses! Nobody’s feelings got hurt!
And everyone gets a Participation Trophy!
Dave Note:. I have seen a comment from a doctor saying 25% of coronavirus patients need serious treatment to survive! So your 20% sounds accurate! This what they are really hiding!
Obviously without serious treatment the death toll could be as high as 25%!
Western governments are not saying so but their actions to quarantine for 2 weeks says a lot!
When it comes to the coronavirus what most people are missing is the lack of availability of tests to confirm cases.
Ijt isn’t just China! It also applies to the west too. We have very few test kits available!
That China’s medical system is over whelmed is no surprised. They are so over whelmed that they are simply leaving everyone to their own devices! Just go home and die!
Anyone who dies is automatically cremated no questions asked. Basically if you die outside of a hospital then you are not counted in official death totals.
So we know the official death totals only include those officially confirmed which are greatly limited by the lack of test kits.
I seriously doubt our medical system could cope with such great numbers either.
I am beginning to wonder if Joe Biden is now in political “free fall”?
Since the Ukraine Impeachment hoax is drawing to a close, the Dems no longer need the support of old creepy Joe running around in his “No Malarkey” campaign bus!
I noticed that old Joe is suddenly being asked by the Dem controlled media about the Ukraine. Why ask now after ignoring the Ukraine question for nearly a year?
My prediction:. Old Joe is going to fall like a rock in the next Dem manipulated media polls!
It was nice knowing you Joe!
I am getting great enjoyment watching the DNC trying to to kill Bernie!
They have to kill Bernie because it is in the script.
Right now Bernie is suffering death by a thousand cuts!
But bleeding Bernie seems to be getting stronger!
The DNC script says he should be getting weaker!
Now Hillary is throwing poision darts!
The DNC Is stacking their board with Hillary’s friends!
DNC is changing the rules in the middle of the game!
So when can we expect DNC Bernie kill shots?
Stay tuned to another exciting episode of Bernie refusing to die!
Sorry Bernie, the DNC script says you have to die in the end.
The script writers are never wrong!
Just ask Bugs Bunny!
It was always about the money!
Bosco:. Hey, you are really making some headway with your 2 crow friends!
Your comment about being within pellet gun range reminded me of my experiences with crows!
When young I spent summers on my Grandfather’s farm in southern Ontario since summers up in Labrador were non-existant!
I remember my Grandfather saying he couldn’t get within long 22 range of the crows eating his crops!
Obviously through evolution we have created super crows! All the dumb crows were bred out of existence!
Another creature that we have helped greatly speed up their evolution, is the super coyote!
We never used to have coyotes in southern Ontario. Now they are everywhere including downtown Toronto! (On a side note, there are no longer any ground hogs left!)
It is nothing to now read about some poor old lady losing her fat little pooch on her front lawn to a coyote in broad daylight!
I find it rather amusing watching Hillary always blaming everyone else for her repeated failures.
Using the mirror effect, it is interesting to watch what she says of other people.
What she says of others, says very little about the people she is critical of.
Instead what she does say of others, says much more about what she thinks of herself!
So when she called many Americans “Deplorables”, what she was really saying was she felt deplorable!
I think the reason few Americans seem to like her, is because she projects such a negative image.
Most people seem to prefer positive images.
Dr. D. Rich:. I had an uncle who was a doctor. (Still one in family with another finishing med school so we will be back to 2 soon.)
Once when on a cycling vacation in northern Italy, my uncle complained to another doctor in the cycling group that he was suffering from a new disease that he had recently discovered, called CRS.
A few days later the other doctor couldn’t take it anymore and finally worked up his courage to finally ask what CRS stood for.
My uncle replied. “Can’t Remember Shit!”
Bosco:. One thing I can vouch for personally, is the incredible stupidity of communist beaurocrats!
Yes, our western beaurocrats are incredibly stupid too.
What gives the communists the upper edge is their communist system!
The communist system makes good people look bad!
Saw this first hand working in a Siberian coal mine in 1983!
I haven’t paid too much attention to DC’s political fake Impeachment threatre.
When it comes to having witnesses appear, both sides are playing chicken big time!
Neither side really wants witnesses because it would expose the involvement of both sides in their Ukraine money laundromat!
So far the dumb people seem to be preferring real fake soap operas that they don’t have to take seriously!
Zerosum:. Regarding Canada signing the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement.
You are 100% Correct!
Due to Trudope being in China’s pocket, the bulk of the trade agreement was written by the US and Mexico!
Trudope wanted more Chinese stuff put into Canadian produced cars, the opposite to the US and Mexico!
Trudope boycotted further trade talks per instructions from US speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats, and US Chamber of Commerce.
So the US and Mexico continued bilateral trade talks until reaching an agreement.
Being polite neighbors, Mexico informed Trudope 48 hours before they were going to sign the US-Mexico trade agreement!
Trudope had 2 bad choices created solely of his own making! Sign or be left out!
He signed in 36 hours!
To this day most Canadians have no idea what happened because Trudope controls the media.
Zerosum:. Yes the Chinese can build a hospital in short order.
However you might not be so inspired if you knew how they do it. Basically they conscript every male in the area! My wife saw a message from a local Chinese woman saying her elderly father was being forced to work long hours on building this hospital. When these people can’t continue, they force replacements.
Also diverting enormous resources to building a building does nothing to help fight the spreading virus! It is nothing more than a “Oh, look at the squirrel!” we are doing something even if it is the wrong thing to be doing! Aren’t we great!
Imagine if these same enormous resources where used to help deal with the virus instead what could have been done to help the local people?
Instead of building a new building, how about setting up beds in existing large buildings to immediately help the local people? And direct outside medical personel to staff these temporary emergency hospitals?
No, of course not! That might actually work! That is just too easy!
Let’s continue with the communist party’s 3 monkeys policy!
That Stalin was paranoid about being poisoned is no surprise!
Especially considering what he did to everybody else!
John Day:. Your short parable makes perfect sense!
Your character was merely doing what he/she had been taught since he/she was a kid!
Raul:. Noted your comment about your winter blues.
I was raised in northern Labrador near the tree line. Winters were long (October to May) snow from September to June with few hours of sun. So I know first hand about what the shortage of sun does to one’s body and mind! Everyone from Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia can verify this too!
One thing you never hear about is the use of phototherapy. Specifically UV B light.
I built my own dual 6 foot light fixture to fit neatly behind the bathroom door out of the way and I do a full body 5 minutes every night before I go to bed.
I have been doing this for just over 2 years (3rd winter) now. Since I started the phototherapy, the one thing I have noticed is that I no longer have a craven for sunlight! Of course the main reason I do this is to tame my eczema (dry skin).
When you first start only do 1 minute the first few days. It is like getting a mild sunburn. Look for some slightly pink skin! When you no longer turn pink increase the time exposure. Then increase the time to 2 minutes for a day or two, then 3 minutes, 4 minutes, then 5 minutes. After reaching 5 minutes it then depends upon how you feel whether to keep increasing the time. Your body/mind will tell you how much is enough!
The special UV B light blubs are made by Phillips of Holland. In Canada they cost about $150 for one 6 foot tall bulb. You can get smaller sizes too. Check Phillips website for available sizes and nearest dealer. Commerical units are greatly over priced! All they are, are nothing but glorified ordinary light fixtures!
I made mine for about $400. All you need, in my case, are; eye protection goggles, 2 UVB light bulbs, a timer, an electronic ballast, and 2 pairs of light blub end caps. It helps to be an electrical engineer!
If you don’t want to build you own unit then you should be able to buy shorter light bulbs that should fit an ordinary 4 foot ceiling light fixture. Get one with it’s own on/off pull chain then you don’t need to buy a timer either! Use your phone as a timer instead. In Canada an ordinary 4 foot shop light fixture runs between $25 to $40. I know everything in Europe costs more!
Years prior to this I built a small solarium so I could sit in the sun during the winter months. It was the only way I could afford to go south during the winter months. This didn’t work so well during December or January as that is when we see little sun here in Toronto due to the clouds plus shortest daylight. Just like in Holland! Lots of clouds but no bloody sun!
Anyway Raul, I would give serious consideration to getting yourself a UV B light blub! It doesn’t need to cost you an arm and leg either!
Don’t be like me! It took me 64 years to figure this out!
If you need any help let me know and I will gladly guide you the best I can!
Raul:. These viruses concern people because of their unpredictability.
However, I also have wondered in the grand scheme of life, if such viruses are not also part of life’s ongoing long term success strategy.
What would happen if we didn’t face such viruses? Might we be worst off? thanks for
I have often wondered about the purpose of the common cold.
Someone once told me that there are over 20,000 different cold viruses. I don’t know if this is true or not, but I have probably suffered over at least a 100 colds in my life so far. Maybe 200?
My theory for colds is this nasty pest is somehow necessary to either test or boost my immune system from time to time to be ready to prevent something more serious.
Flu’s and pneumonias probably do the same thing except brutally they cull out the weak the way wolves cull weak and sick deer to keep the herd healthy.
During the winter months I do not go out very often which helps to reduce my exposure to other 2 legged monkeys. I try to remember to wash my hands after ever outing. Those seem to be the only two things within my control.
Meanwhile life goes on.
That people prefer Hollywood’s Soap Operas over Congress’s fake threatre is no surprise at all!
Hollywood produces real fake stuff!
Congress produces fake fake stuff!
Hollywood wants to entertain you! They want to be paid!
Congress wants you to take their fake fake stuff seriously! Congress already has your money!
Dumb people aren’t stupid! They want Hollywood’s real fake stuff so they don’t have take it seriously!
Bosco:. Thanks for your response.
To be honest I had never heard of HHT before! You learn something every day!
Googled it and it looks like you were the unlucky receiptent of a 50% chance of getting a recessive Gene from one of your parents. Likely your luckier siblings didn’t get it?
Well on that genetic lottery issue I can relate also!
I am the lucky receiptent of a 25% chance of receiving a recessive gene from “both” of my parents. Both my brother and sister are fine.
I have what they call Ushers Syndrome. Most people only get RP (retinitis pigmentosa) in the eye. Ushers just means both my eyes and ears are affected (i.e. double bad).
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) causes vision lost in the eye starting with loss of peripheral vision as the eye cells attached to the light receptors in the eye slowly die off and continues inwards towards the center of the eye, creating tunnel vision, until all sight is finally lost (the window closes).
Luckly I have the slowest type of Ushers Syndrome. Most People with Ushers Syndrome are blind and deaf by their twenties. I still have a few degrees of vision left in the center of my eye. This remaining tunnel vision is why I can still read for now but someday that too will close.
In my younger days, I did managed to travel and see the world. Saw 44 of the US states & about 30 countries.
The biggest problem I face right now is the poor resolution of what I am seeing, so often things appear very foggy. Whether I am well rested or tired greatly affects my vision too. Yeah they took my driver’s license away about 15 years ago!
Of course I am as deaf as a bat but surprisingly I can still hear better than my deaf wife. My 23 year old son and 19 year old daughter appear to both be fine.
Basically I got all the crappy stuff genetic wise. In addition to Ushers, I got also got cronic nose bleeds, severe allergies (food & environmental), and severe eczema or dry skin. The allergies caused cronic red rashes/hives all over my body making “itchy” my middle name!
A couple of years ago my brother heard about phototherapy on the radio in Detroit while driving into work at GM. Yeah, he gets to crash cars into the wall as part of his job! But it is a very stressful job.
So I investigated it, it was too expensive, so then I built my own UV B light fixture for $400 and that, after 64 years of living hell, has made my skin behave itself! So I am no longer tortured by red rashes and eczema now. I typically do 5 minutes a night just before going to bed. Too bad I wasn’t able to figure this out long before but then none my doctors or specialists in Toronto could either!
So for that I am very grateful my skin is no longer torturing me every minute that I am awake anymore.
Well, I am glad your move to the coast with it’s increased humidity and likely milder more even temperatures has help you cope better with your HHT. Since it is a cronic condition learning to cope better is all the help that is available. But often we suffer greatly before finding coping solutions.
Such is the struggle of life!
Bosco::. Hope your nose is doing O.K. Can relate!
I commented yesterday about my nose’s experiences!
Raul:. Isn’t it strange that Britain’s worst criminals still have a basic sense of injustice! Doesn’t say much for justice does it!!
Bosco::. I can relate to your nose bleed problems.
When I was a kid, I lived up in northern Labrador where the winters are long and the air cold and very dry. I had blood vessels too close to the surface of my nose, so I suffered constant nose bleeds for no reason at all. The doctors said there was nothing they could do for me until I grew up.
My nose bleeds were so bad that my Mother, a nurse, would pack my nose with 5 foot long narrow strips of cotton coated with vasoline just to stop the bleeding! They stayed there for days before being removed.
When I was 19, studying electrical engineering in Toronto, my uncle, a doctor gave me a referral to a nose specialist.
I remember that visit very well! The doctor used the medical equivalent of an electrical soldering gun to burn the skin over the blood vessels! I got to smell my own burning flesh!
Then after I recovered from that surgery (felt more like a butchering job!), I stopped having so many nose bleeds! Those that I did have stopped as quickly as they started!
Now I was a free man, no longer burdened by constant fear of sudden nose bleeds!
I did several follow ups every 5 years or so where the doctor did quick 10 second touch ups using a Q-tip dipped in a mild acid on any trouble spots.
Now 45 years later, I remain basically free of nose bleeds and remain forever grateful to that doctor for improving my quality of life!
Bosco, from what you say, I guess lasers have replaced soldering guns and acid Q-tips!
I hope you are able to achieve the success that I have experienced. Best wishes!
V. Arnold:. Sadly we are in the exponential stage. The numbers will get worse before they get better.
Raul:. Your don’t insult the jury comment, reminds me of my dear Father.
My Father served in a jury for a murder trial. Oddly both the defendant’s lawyer and prosecutor had agreed beforehand the defendant had committed the murder, so the jury’s only decision was it manslaughter or second degree.
The trial started Monday morning after jury selection. During a break, for unknown reasons, the judge let slip he was looking forward to go fishing the coming weekend.
Thursday morning the procecutor and defense nicely wrapped up their arguments. For the jury reaching a verdict would be quick.
Rather than have the jury begin deliberations right away, the judge dismissed the jury for the day!
By doing this, the judge manipulated the his court schedule so he wouldn’t have to start a new trial Friday morning and could get an early start to go fishing.
My Father, an engineer, was decidedly angered about his valueable time being needlessly wasted.
Friday morning the jury met for what they and the judge thought would be a quick easy verdict since the murder case was not complicated.
Well, my Father was so pissed at the judge that he hung the jury 11 – 1 all day Friday!
This forced the judge to order the jury to reconvene Saturday morning to continue their deliberations.
Saturday morning came and the jury quickly reached a 12 – 0 verdict in less than 5 minutes!
The judge was royally pissed! Not only did he not get to leave early Friday morning to go fishing, he had been forced to cancel his fishing plans so he could work Saturday!
Yes, the judge knew exactly who the trouble maker was! An engineer!
The funny thing is this type of behavior was so unlike my Father! I still shake my head in disbelief that he would ever have done such a thing! But then again the judge had pissed my Father off! I think my Father was rather proud of this!
Schiff had 3 plates of spaghetti.
Not knowing what to do with them, natuarally being who he is, he threw them at the wall to see if any of the spaghetti would stick.
Sadly all of the spaghetti slid down the wall onto the floor.
Now the walls and floors of Schiff’s House are a steaming mess!
Schiff now wants the Senate to clean up his mess!
Warren has lately been playing with matches. She recently tried burning Bernie!
Bernie has been burning red hot. Warren felt the Bern!
Warren is now cooling off! It doesn’t pay to play with matches!
Now that Bernie is red hot, Hillary is trying to cool down the Bern!
Maybe Bernie doesn’t want to get burned like he got burned the first time!
Once burnt, twice shy?
Bernie was only meant to put on a good show to entertain the masses for Hillary in 2016.
Nice cottage you got there, Bernie!
Maybe Bernie is putting on too good a show in 2020?
Where is old sleepy creepy Joe when you need him?
But Hillary still owns all the super delegates!
So, no worries, mate!
Hillary to the rescue in round 2!
Kung-Flu:. A Bad Dream. Imagine if you were put in charge of spreading the Kung-Flu virus as far and wide and in the shortest time possible.
By picking China as your starting point you start with one great asset, communists. They come by the 3 monkeys naturally thus greatly helping to spread the Kung-Flu virus without any effort on your part.
So far you have successfully spread the Kung-Flu virus to all corners of the world without doing anything!.
Now you are presented with the greatest yearly migration of people in the world!
During Chinese New Year, over 400 million people are expected to travel, an unbelievable gift toward helping you to spread the Kung-Flu virus beyond even your wildest dreams!
So far you haven’t yet lifted a finger! You are still thinking about what you need to do to fulfill your job successfully! Well congratulations, you are going to get a gold star or something!
P.S. At this point I would advise you not to do anything! Quit while you are ahead! Anything you ydo, mightI actually slow down the spread of Kung-Flu virus!
Wake up! Wake up! You were just having a nightmare!
V.Arnold:. It is simply the power of compounding!
The only variables are the timing between compounding (i.e. the time interval between catching the virus and becoming infectious) and how many people you infect.
With 400 million Chinese traveling this week, what better conditions could you ask for to spread this virus far and wide?
Raul:. China’s health care system reflects it’s ridgid communist past. The communists promised free health care for all.
However implementing such a massive and “expensive” scheme suddenly required training new health care workers.
The only way to produce the required number of needed health care workers and “keep costs down” was to reduce the standards of what was called a doctor! The same for nurses! Pay was kept at levels similar to average workers!
The fallicy of this system is self evident! Why would any bright person to go to all the trouble of working extra hard in school to excell, then take on more years of schooling just to be a lowly paid doctor?
Now let this disfunctional system fester for 7 decades and what do you think you get? A functioning system?
I worked for 6 months in a Siberian coal mine back in 1983.
A co-worker and room mate, Ken, suddenly developed accute appendicitus and was operated upon that very night. Everything went fine according to Ken, an experienced 3rd world traveler. They gave him the best of what they had.
However the regional health authority, not trusting the locals, none-the-less sent out one of their doctors to check up on Ken to make sure everything was O.K. I remember Ken joking about this!
This illustrates a key point. Even the real good Russian doctors did not think very highly of their community health care doctors!
I suspect many of China’s so called comminity doctors are not trained to the level of what we call nurses. Their best doctors all reside in the big cities just like our doctors do!
One of the take a ways I learned about communists, is they do not like anyone rocking their boat! Trust me I rocked their boat many times!
Who knew that you could create so much oil out of thin air?
Merely moving the decimal point to the right is all the effort that was required!
The Fed knew!
Bosco::. Nice picture of puppets! Looks like maybe Jimmy or Clark?
As for Trump appearing, I believe Obama paved the way with his “Change You Can Believe In” slogan. He failed to deliver any change except to further insitutionalize the corruption, a Chicago style!
Obama was the critical ingredient. Without Obama there could never have been a Trump.
So voters voted for Trump, a disruptor! The status quo is being burnt to the ground daily as we speak!
Now voters have “Change They Can Believe In”, New York style!
Bosco:. You bring up a good point about the kids!
Dam if I can get my kids or my wife to turn off any lights! They seem to think they exist only to be turned on!
Now about recycling! I get shit from my entire family because I won’t throw out good stuff! A button falls off a shirt! No, it is too much trouble to sew on a new button! It is so much easier to just go out and buy a new shirt!
Look I can turn this still good stuff into other useful good stuff! No, No. We can’t have this shit around my house! It clutters up the house and collects dust!
What is wrong with turning my neighbor’s broken Ikea furniture into new furniture or a shelf? And turning my neighbor’s dead battery lawn mower into a regular electric lawn mower? Replacing my neighbor’s burnt out weed whacker motor with another’s used motor? And about that chain saw?
However, I can not hold a candle to what my parents did! Both were children of the depression. Nothing went to waste! I pale in comparison to them!
So as each succeeding generation arrives, they seem to become ever more wasteful!
Maybe this climate shit is just a way to soothe everyone’s feelings about the throw-away world we now live in!
Greta, as Lenin said, is a “useful idiot”!
Now about green solar panels. Adult solar panels don’t produce enough energy to produce baby solar panels! And if they somehow did manage to produce a baby solar panel, the baby would die anyway, not able to produce enough energy to live. Besides the parent solar panels would die before being able to raise their baby!
About those green wind turbines. Adult wind turbines don’t produce enough energy to produce baby wind turbines! And if they somehow did manage to produce a baby wind turbine, the baby would be born still born! It is just as well because, by that time, the parent wind turbines would be in the local landfill anyways.
You see, green energy takes more energy to produce, than it can ever produce! This is of course not sustainable! That is why it needs to be publically subsidized by the poor so the rich can get richer!
Oh, yes, you are wondering about the life expectancy of green energy! Short! Actually very short!
On a side note, last week my 23 year old son, a wind turbine technician, said all of the wind turbines were shutdown last week due to the freezing rain on the blades and towers. They can not go near them because of the risk of falling ice. I don’t expect they will be running this week either. We will have to wait for a warm sunny spell above freezing to melt the ice. It is January, when the sun never shines.
Those green wind turbine blades do not last forever but need to be periodically replaced (7 years ?) and sent to the landfill. Same for the old green solar panels. You were born to die! Offer to the dump you go!
It is a very good thing, for the social good, that green energy doesn’t have to produce and raise offspring!
Greta, did I forget to tell you that you are a total idiot? Lenin was too kind.
Yup! Trust the plan! Justice is coming! Any day now!
I also have 100 acres of consolidated moose pasture (deep swamp) for sale if you want to save the world!
Oh, by the way Greta, my daughter wants to know how you can afford to travel, first class, all over the world while she can’t?
Yes, Greta, how nice that daddy and the UN are even writing all your social comments for you! I guess being a totally “useful idiot” does have it’s advantages! Lenin would so love you!
Also very nice to be able to travel on an unlimited UN environmental expense account!
Don’t worry, I won’t spoil it for you by telling my daughter how you can afford to trave!l and why she can’t!
Nice picture of real people!
Reality is being in a Tesla, on auto pilot, as it races to bang the rear of a sexy parked red fire truck!
After reading all the above comments, I get it!
The world is going to hell, or the world is already in hell!
Cave men also thought the world was hell too! Fears of sabre tooth tigers comes to mind!
The American deep state is currently in shock that President Trump just blew their joint money laundromat with Iran all to pieces!
They are deeply upset that President Trump blew Obama’s little “understanding with Iran” all to hell!
They are even more upset about President Trump not tipping them off before hand!
The deep state started this mess in the ME. President Trump is just finishing it for them! But just not in the manner that they had expected!
The deep staters should have let the President play golf over the holidays instead of stirring the pot in the ME!
The deep state has forgotten President Trump has had military training!
Dr. D:. Your comment about Mark Carney and “straight up Soviet Central Planning” brings back a umemory of a hilarious interview with the Director of Soviet Central Planning!
After the usual glorious BS from the Director, he invites the camera to walk with him into the department where central planning actually takes place. The camera then follows the Director into a room full of desks but no people! The Director then says maybe they are all attending a meeting that nobody told me about!
Yes I saw first hand how well central planning worked during my 6 months of working in a Siberian coal mine back in 1983!
Since there was plenty of toilet paper in Moscow, there had to be plenty in Siberia too!
When available, the quality of Russian toilet paper, is what put the Russian soldiers in the fighting mood to defeat the Germans in WW2!
Well as for being the “best-educated Constitutional Scholar” president, Obama sure went out of his way to distain and disrepect the said Canonnstitution.
As the world turns, the said Constitution is slowly but surely putting Obama in it’s cross hairs.
The Constitution already has put Obama’s crowning glory, the demise of Obamacare in it’s sights over severability.
The said Constitution may yet put Obama himself, in it cross hairs.
Obama may finally learn respect for the Constitution, something he forgot to learn while at Harvard.
Ims:. I am surprised that you don’t think jobs are very important to people. Most people like to have jobs.
You sound just like all those communists I met in Siberia back in 1983! That place was a hell hole!
I would be only too happy to give you the address so you can move there!
O.K. about this global warming thingy.
I live in cold Canada.
I have been waiting for global warming to arrive for over 40 years now.
Look, I am getting bloody tired of waiting for global warming to arrive.
I want global warming now!
