about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
I am fucked in the head
Now that’s not a judgement call
but you will judge me anyway
because that’s what people do
they look at someone else and instantly ascertain
the differences or defects
in order to inflate the self
and keep their own mental state floating a little longer down the stream
which becomes a river
and cavalcades with the rest of humanity down the highway of civilization
bumping up and abutting against the discombobulated masses
like hard fragile marbles
glaring at one another
while the hermetically sealed humans all project their frustrations
about the insanity of modern living
upon the other
who can be labeled beneath your assumed level of sanity
who can be pinned to a category and not seen as a soul
those drunks who always hang outside the liquor store
that manager who is an asshole to his employees
is suffering equally as much as the subset of employees who have to work 3 jobs to make ends meet
which is not making excuses for assholes and derelects
I’m just saying that there is always more to see than the obvious
and if you seek to define than you really are obsessed with confirmation bias
because definitions are weak and fungible
People use words in different ways all the time
They say “hear” when they mean “understand”
They use the word “see” when they mean the word “grasp”
and so on
Which makes you wonder
what exactly is human communication when we use words in different ways
and view the world as a microcosm of our self-justification?

This speech was NOT Presidential
It was confused, legally ambiguous and sprinkled with propaganda talking points.
These people are so clueless that they don't realize when they say something that completely destroys their credibility. Trump's children are all involved in various monetary schemes, just listen to the first 20 seconds of this video. Then watch as the inimitable Brian Tyler Cohen completely lays out the facts and utterly hoists these people on the petard of their own hypocrisy.
This is the same Kevin McCarthy who opened his mouth 3 years ago.
KIEV, Ukraine — A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump," McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016, exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy's assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

The differences between Viruses & Bacteria
Saturday, 7 March 2020 at 14h 40m 58s
This shit blows me away within the first 2 minutes. 90% of our genes are the result of bacterial and viral invasions. This is back in August 2017, just so you know that it's not pandemic spew from the recent coronavirus.
At around timestamp 2:00
What makes us different [from monkeys and apes] is the bacteria and viruses ... that live in us. And you can actually show when humans evolved from the great apes because the bacteria actually changed ... The bacteria made us rather than our genes made us.

Dr. Gundry on the coronavirus
Dr. Gundry discusses the gut biome as the first line of defense against viruses, and mentions how "sugar, or anything - like bread - that turns into sugar" has the most deleterious affects on our bodies natural immune system.
At the timestamp of 17:00 Dr. Gundy answers the question, "How can you support your immune system so that you are less susceptible to the virus?"
Make sure you have an abundance of Vitamin D3. The University of California San Diego says the RDA is 10,000 IU. Dr. Gundry himself takes 150,000 IU a day for 3 days whenever he feels like he has flu-ish symptoms.
Based upon research from Linus Pauling, and anecdotal experience's from Dr. Gundry's practice : Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C or timed-released Vitamin C capsules or the 500mg chewable Vitamin C tablets
Sunlight is the best way to generate Vitamin D, at least a half-hour each day.
By the way, orange juice is the worst way to get vitamin C because the sugar competes with the Vitamin C in uptake by the cells. Bell Peppers, Broccoli, artichokes, and Sauerkraut are better sources of Vitamin C.
