Vitamin D3 Cold Remedy

Sophie posted a couple months ago that when she feels a cold coming on she takes 10,000 IU of vitamin D3, and it seems to stop the cold cold. I've been waiting since then for a cold to come on. It finally did a couple days ago with the beginnings of a sore throat and my head feeling weird - congeste...

Re: Inflation

I had to buy a tool at Lowes this morning. The guy who helped me find it was shaking his head, because OSB board that recently sold for $8 each just got marked up to $50 each. That's insane. The price of new homes must be skyrocketing, which will make the price of used homes do the same.

Re: Inflation

My favorite home repair was not too long ago: the dishwasher quit making heat. It turned out that the problem was the connection between the control board and the heater, and the "by the book" repair was an expensive new control board. The actual fix was to put $.00001 of solder to connect the wire...

Re: Healthcare Workers Should Be Forced To Be Vaccinated

That last point about health care workers reporting bad side effects is clearly worse than crying Fire in a crowded theater and therefore should not be protected speech and should be criminalized.

It felt good to write that sentence. Now I can see why Democratism is becoming so popular.

Re: Why I Became a Democrat

If that was a "ravishing of democracy," I'd say you have a pretty low bar for what a ravishing is. Did they find a single fire arm or bomb on any one of those silly protesters? I'd bet good money that the whole Capitol invasion thing was allowed to happen by the powers that be so that they can crack...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

There's plenty of stories of medicines rushed to production that have caused more problems than they solved. Even our resident physician, Sophie, said that she wouldn't have gotten the vaccine unless her employer pushed her into it. I'm certainly in no rush to get it. Call me a Karen if you like. I ...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

So, just as any rational person suspected, the exact things that Trump was excoriated for by the media, if done by Biden get a mild hand slap.

No wonder Trump called them fake news. That's probably his biggest achievement is exposing fake news for what it really is.

Yes at least we don't have those mean tweets to deal with any longer. And isn't it so much more pleasant now that the media has a president who doesn't deserve to be treated so negatively all the time? At least we don't have to read the negative headlines all the time.

Re: Political Humor and Satire

Democrats don't understand simple economics. Why should they? They never had to run a business. Small business owners wouldn't be voting Democrat anyway, so why should the Democrats worry about them (other than the fact that they make up a large part of our economy). Our country has become a farce.
