Re: Trump's 4D chess strategy is winning

No vast conspiracy needed. . . It's just an iteration of the "give them enough rope" theme.

CDB

Have any of you had experience with CDB oil? My hands are hurting nearly all the time now from arthritis, so my ears perked up when I heard that CDB might offer some relief. However, I see nothing on the internet about the mechanism of action, even less about dosage or frequency. Is it something you...

Re: Sophie--Are you okay?

I wonder what kind of electrical back-up would be suitable for an apartment situation. I've got an inverter-type generator that is the size of a piece of carry-on luggage and that weighs about 50 pounds. It is reasonably quiet and literally sips gas because it throttles up and down depending upon th...

Re: The Permanent Mental Health Regime

Here's a question (albeit a little tangential) that I've just been dying to ask: Are there any studies that compare the outcome of cancer patients who go through the standard treatment protocols and those who do nothing? I'm guessing that the data is limited due to the fact that you can't very well ...

Meanwhile, every time you hear of someone being diagnosed with breast cancer via mammogram, you can be sure that they are going through biopsy, resection, chemo and radiation for something that in all likelihood is harmless.
Whoa.

Re: The Permanent Mental Health Regime

So Sophie, would you mind clarifying your point of view specifically with regard to the battery of tests that GPs recommend as patients cross particular ages? (In my case, 40?) I'm not sure exactly what they are: colonoscopy, heart CT, etc? I'd be interested in knowing this, too. Machine Ghost is a...

Re: The Permanent Mental Health Regime

It doesn’t take a scientific study to know that spending some time with a cuddly cat or friendly dog will probably put you in a better mood. That being said, researchers from Washington State University have found objective, physiological evidence that just 10 minutes spent petting a cat or dog wil...

Re: ICE Raids

Even if you could argue, with a straight face, that illegal aliens are entitled to representation in Congress, the principled way of going about the census--as with any issue--is to lay bare the unadulterated facts, which are what they are, and to argue from there what the Constitution says about th...

Okay, I'm wierd. But animal companions are WAY better than sex.

Re: ICE Raids

Octonia, are you maintaining that representatives may be apportioned to persons who are present in the country illegally? I don't see history as supporting that contention since slaves and women at least had a lawful presence.

Re: ICE Raids

I've been meaning to read the court's opinion, but I'm with you--I can't fathom how you can exclude from a census designed to count citizens for purposes of apportioning representatives any mechanism for identifying and counting citizens. But I'm past looking for logic when it comes to these things....
