Now I have to go back and find something for my husband to watch on Prime or Netflix, etc. He is so spoiled :) -- And, DON'T YOU ALL FORGET TO SIGN DR. ZELENKO'S WHITEHOUSE PETITION ABOUT HIS HCQ PROTOCOL.

Also, my sister sends me threads by Paul Schmehl. Some of them are beautiful and comforting about what we've been going through. She sent me a thread of his today. It surprised me. I'd almost say it shocked me, but that's too strong. Maybe its boldness took me past shock to being delighted and impressed and also wondering, 'what will they do about this?' Anyway, here's the thread: Thread: I just posted this to Nextdoor, but I thought I would put it on Twitter as well. Help for those who want it. I realize that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is an extremely divisive subject. Therefore, I will not allow any comments to this post. For those of you who want access to HCQ and your doctor refuses (as has mine), I want you to know that there are two groups of doctors who will diagnose you or your loved ones using telemedicine and, if indicated, prescribe HCQ and zinc as well as an antibiotic. You are an American. You have the right 2 try a medication if you so desire, & no one, not your neighbors, nor your county health officials, nor your governor, nor the FDA, nor the CDC, nor Dr. Fauci, has the right 2 withhold that medication from you should you choose 2 use it. Here are the links. Be sure to copy and save them, because it's quite possible that this post will be taken down. (It's amazing to me that this is happening in America today, but that's what it has come to.) frontlinemedicaldoctors.com speakwithanmd.com/corsination/ All of these doctors are licensed to practice by their respective governing boards and are competent physicians. Do not let COVID-19 take your loved ones when a cure is readily available and well within most budgets. Too many Americans have died. It’s time to end this.

Here's a link to a petition to the Whitehouse by Dr. Zelenko: Please give the Zelenko Protocol an EUA Created by V.Z. on August 07, 2020 https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/please-give-zelenko-protocol-eua This is his tweet on twitter: "The feedback I’m getting is that there is tremendous suppression going on with this petition. I suggest you copy paste this link in the web browser and then check your email to confirm the petition."https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/please-give-zelenko-protocol-eua I'm way behind, hope this hasn't been posted already, but if it has, good. :)

Well, I'm off for awhile. I'll quit moaning and trying to disgorge my feelings of helplessness and anger on here -- usually I just read and laugh when one of you witty people says something wise. But, that thing about spectators having to wear masks in hot weather watching a softball game was just TOO much to bear. Had to get it out of my system.
Thank you, swb, I teared up as I read your 5:02. Yes, I think we must push on thru this time, survive, and demand that it never happen again. I keep thinking of being the child of strong parents who went though the depression, WWII (Mother's brother was killed in Germany, Daddy was in the army -- one of Moma's oft-repeated stories was about the rations, how hard it was to get tires, leather shoes, etc. [she saved the last few bits of my unused ration book, I still have it], and everything that generation lived through. Polio -- I've told you all about Donnie, one of my classmates in third grade, who died of polio. The teacher told us about his death one morning, then had the kids in his row of desks and two more rows closest to his side of the room, sit in the other three rows, so we sat, two to a desk for a few days -- probably until the weekend and they could Lysol all of the desks. Now just think about the germs spread in that school room. Of course as an eight year old, I didn't think about that. I just couldn't believe Donnie was dead. I know our parents worried about one of us catching polio, but nothing stopped. No quarantine of 'well' people. No masks. We did see 'newsreels' of people in iron lungs, but life went on. I start to ask ... why did it change? But I know why it changed. People like Bill Ayers, communists, and other radicals slithered into our universities and, at first, silently brainwashed several generations of American youth.
Emotional roller coaster -- that's true, ccgirl. One day I'm confident and positive that Trump is going to win, if not in a landslide, at least comfortably. Then in a few days, I'll just plummet emotionally, thinking that the left outnumbers us and will take over and tax us, steal our IRAs, retirement, savings, and move shiftless aliens into our neighborhoods by turning every house on the market into Section 8 housing. I know I'm supposed to trust in the Lord. About a year ago I commented on one of Yaacov Apelbaum's columns, and he and I exchanged a couple of emails. I had told him I was worried about some sneak who had contacted him purporting to be someone he wasn't and was worried about attracting evil (or words to that effect). Apelbaum's response to me closed with this, and I do try and live like this, but some days it is difficult: "As far as the getting the progressive mob treatment, I’ll defer to Joshua 1:9 "“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; be not frightened, discouraged, or dismayed: for the LORD thy G-d is with you wherever you go.”" There really is nothing else for us, is there -- we must remain strong and filled with courage. Prayer helps. Watering our flowers this morning, I prayed for President Trump, his sons, daughter, and to keep him safe and filled with courage, strength, and intelligence. I hope he feels God's power.
Yes, Extraneous, I saw where that cheat had doctored a chart to make it appear that wearing masks was 'winning the battle' -- I keep thinking of all the old cliches, like -- do they know no shame? But I guess their only emotion is probably anger when they're caught.
Extraneous, I just noticed that I posted an old, 2018, newspaper story about the rehab of birds at the Sutton Aviary Center here. The story I read today was about the Masked Bobwhite, same bird, slightly different story. This time they're flying the chicks out to Arizona. However, I can't find today's story online yet. Anyway, a good program continues at Sutton. It was a sweet story. Anyway, just thought I'd make the correction.
Extraneous, I thought of you this morning (re birds) -- here is a 'feel good' story. It lifted my spirits for awhile today: https://www.examiner-enterprise.com/lifestyle/20180729/sutton-center-saving-rare-quail "Eighty masked bobwhite quail, one of the most endangered birds in North America, are ready to be returned to the wild, thanks to a breeding program at the George Miksch Sutton Avian Research Center just south of Bartlesville. "“We have just hatched our very first chicks, and they will be released on the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge [in Arizona] on Tuesday with foster bobwhite dads,” Sutton Avian Research Center Director of Development Audra Fogle said. “In three weeks, 120 more chicks will be delivered.”" Another story in the newspaper described the baby chicks: 'about as big as a quarter, covered in fuzzy feathers.' Made me smile.
CH: Your 3:30 about CA letting thousands of inmates loose because of the Chinese flu -- if the masks prevent transmission of flu, why don't they just mask up the felons? And leave them incarcerated.
ManTran, 2:50: "Growing up I came out of the hills of MT and lost about half of the 2nd grade to each and every childhood disease sequentially. After that every fall I lost a week to whatever bug rattled past. I had my tonsils out on my 21st BD and pretty much never caught a bug since. Not sure if that was a high correlation, but it fit." I had my tonsils taken out when I was about six years old, didn' really get sick much in grade school, but caught the Hong Kong flu in high school -- seemed like everyone had it. Was really sick. Since then, I've never caught a common cold. My husband, our children, most people I know all catch colds, but I don't -- haven't had one since that flu. I'd like to type the following in tiny letters :) because what I'm about to say might make my miraculous absence of colds seem a little less impressive or interesting, but here goes -- I've had pneumonia twice. Sort of takes the shine off my story of not having colds when you can get pneumonia. ?? But who knows ... I don't. (I've had both of the pneumonia shots -- at different times. Once in hospital when I was checking in to have back surgery, the other when our doctor said I should have the shot.)
Woe is me. I got so upset/depressed today. Our 14-year-old granddaughter's softball team is playing three games today down in Broken Arrow (south of Tulsa). It's 96 degrees, heat index 106. There's a Heat Advisory issued from National Weather Service. The games will all be played outside (naturally). Ordinarily this wouldn't make me upset -- kids/people play in hot weather all summer long here -- however, the message from softball coach was what made me sick. All spectators are to wear masks. Also, maintain social distancing. This is crazy! Masks outside in this heat? What has happened to us? We've all read that masks don't prevent/protect against the Chinese flu. I can remember, even back in my school years, laughing at the people in the story about the emperor's new clothes. How silly, I'd think. How could they live a lie? why did they let social disapproval rule themselves? It made no sense. Would things change if several softball fans keeled over with heat stroke? I doubt it. The high school sports departments would probably smother the news -- just like they're smothering the truth, smothering the parents and fans. Every time I get filled to the brim with the stupidity and evil running amok in our country, the world, I think I can't stand it. I want to make a sign and march up and down the highway running through our town, but I know it wouldn't do any good. I'd keel over. A small notice might make the local news and say 'crazed elderly woman collapses from heat stroke' and nothing would change. I still want to do it. I still want to fight somebody.
Some democrat* bitch is calling for an investigation of Senator James Inhofe, one of the Republicans who'll fight for what he believes in. *They're like roaches, rats, or termites -- they never give up, never quit swarming. https://www.newson6.com/story/5f2bf6f799c9503dfa863cab/oklahoma-democratic-party-calls-for-investigation-of-senator-inhofe-

I'm off for awhile. But, it just popped into my mind (subconscious must be working), narciso, from reading here on jom, it seems several people on here haven't received your emails, so why don't you post excerpts of your manuscript on your blog -- maybe the first chapter? I'm guessing you're looking for beta readers? That way you'd have several. Anyway, that's just a suggestion on how to get around glitch in email delivery.

I'm going to repost Miss Marple's link to Greg Jarrett's article about Rice: https://thegreggjarrett.com/susan-rice-lied-about-benghazi-she-also-lied-under-oath-about-knowledge-of-fbis-russia-collusion-investigation/ "In conclusion, RCI lays out clearly: Comey told Rice “about Crossfire Hurricane within weeks of the investigation’s launch. Yet she told the House Intelligence Committee under oath that ‘I think it’s important for everybody to understand: We were not informed by Director Comey or the Attorney General that there was an active investigation of anybody in the Trump orbit.”" If she is the VP nominee, will the American people (democratic voters, independents) care that she prevaricates? I doubt it.

No, narciso, as of yesterday I hadn't received it. (I checked after I read that note.) I will go look right now.

Susan Rice, the Human Lightning Rod. "Rice sees corona virus and racism as dual global pandemics. "What Rice lacks in political experience, supporters say, she makes up for in other ways." "“My interest, in all candor, is that Joe Biden be elected president with a partner he thinks can help him win and govern,” she said. “If he thinks I'm the person to best help him do that, I would salute with pride and contribute in every way I can.” "She added: “This is not about me. I did not run for anything with my own personal ambitions. I have always been about serving our country, trying to do the best for our country. That’s my motivation."" She wants it, she really wants it.

I agree, Miss Marple. Reading that tweet irritated me. If it was meant to be witty, it wasn't. If it was simply sarcasm, it missed its mark and failed. In fact, it was drivel. Iowahawk use to be amusing, now he's simply Iowahack.

I've avoided the news as much as I can -- avoided yesterday's hearings, but I went back to the other thread to catch up a little bit and clicked on Rocco's link to Jim Jordan's Peaceful Protest youtube. I discovered I couldn't watch past 5:55 of the video. The riot scenes were bad enough, but looking at AG Barr's face made my heart hurt -- his expression said so much. I also kept thinking, where have all of these evil people come from, have they lived among us, seething with frustration, hatred, envy, and rage, with masks on their faces? Their lust for destruction, looting, and rioting is primal. Who birthed and raised these people? Where do we go from here?

yes, Extraneous, on the London taxi drivers and their navigating skills. I often discussed it with them. When we moved there I can remember thinking, I'll always be lost (mainly because of a couple of movies I'd seen), and at first I was intimidated, but I was determined to know my way around. I loved the maps. We had a big book of London area maps. The tube maps helped too -- as far as learning a direction. I got so I could drive just about anywhere in the city -- not so much south past Wimbledon and on. I could drive down there, but didn't know my way around the streets in Wimbledon. We stabled a horse at a stable a block or two north of Bayswater Road, Hyde Park. Our children went to school in St. John's Wood, we lived in Kensington, so I studied the map and found a back way, used Ladbroke Grove then east past Portobello Road and then on up behind Maida Vale. I drove up to Hampstead a lot, also Golders Green. Drove west out into the countryside to Fulmer (took riding lessons out there). Anyway, I've always loved reading maps and learning my way around. Hopefully it stimulated my hippocampus. Wonder if yoga does? I know I'm not going to start running -- I've had an arrhythmia since my teens, and it just kicks up a fuss over running, plus swimming. I can swim on my side and back, but breast stroke and crawl are tough because of breathing in rhythm.
