KER Politics – Mon 22 Jul, 2019

Are Conservatives terrible human beings because they have no empathy for anyone else? What do you think?

Conservatives not only donate more to charity than other groups. We are as a whole a group that not only rolls up our sleeves and reaches for our checkbooks more than most others.

Brian Moynihan of Bank America had some great things to say about the U.S. Economy and where interest rates should go in the future, but in terms of his thoughts on directing the Banks’ investments, we think that he is all wet!

    I personally do not take flu shots. That is a choice, rightly or wrongly, based on my understanding of the mutations of the influensa virus

    There is, however, a two shot dosage available, which is supposed to give substantial immunity against pneumonia.
    I chose to take those injections. (My arm was sore for several days.)

    I cannot remember when I was last sick. Either my memory is failing, or I have not been sick in the last 40 + years.

      Everybody with any power knows the whole class of Ruling Elites is completely corrupt, by definition: to secure power in the U.S., you have to sell your soul to the Devil, one way or the other.

      Like all Ruling Elites, America’s Elites are absolutely confident in their power:this is hubris taken to new heights.

      That the citizenry could finally have enough of their corrupt, self-serving Overlords does not seem in the realm of possibility to the Protected Few.There’s always a way to lawyer-up and plea-bargain for a wrist-slap, a way to bend another “patriot” (barf), a way to offer a bribe cloaked as a plum position in a philanthro-capitalist NGO (non-governmental organization), and so on.

      The possibility that moral outrage could spark a revolt seems improbable in such a distracted culture, but consider the chart below: even the most distracted, fragmented tribe of the peasantry eventually notices that they’re not in the top 1%, or the top 0.1%, and that the Ruling Elites have overseen an unprecedented concentration of wealth and power into the hands of the few at the expense of the many:

        Our Ruling Elites have no idea how many of us already want to see them all in prison jumpsuits, and they also have no idea how fast the moral revulsion with their corrupt “leadership” might spread. Scanning the distracted, consumerist rabble from the great heights of their wealth and power, they reckon the capacity for moral outrage is limited, leaving them safe from any domestic crusade.

          They also trust that the citizenry can be further fragmented, further distracted, and so they will continue to be invulnerable. Or worst case scenario, a few especially venal villains will need to be sacrificed, and then all will return to the bliss of Neofeudal exploitation.

          But they may have misread the American citizenry, just as they’ve misread history.

    Big Al, go to youtube.com and enter “Reverse pneumonia in 3 hours”
    Dr. Andrew Saul will tell you in 4 minutes how you can reverse pneumonia tonight
    and save yourself a visit to the doctor. Good luck.

      I did not watch all of Dr. Saul youtube video, because I felt it was flawed.
      He did not , while talking about large intake of vitamin C, discuss the form of vitamin C being used.
      Since the human uptake is highly dependent on the form, I considered his advice significantly lacking in specificity.

      If vitamin C is useful in fighting Pneumonia, I can guarantee that Liposomal Vitamin C is more effective.
      Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin, so it has a harder time getting around the cell membranes, which are made up of fatty acids. Liposomal Vitamin C is much more effectively utilized.

    understand both Omar and Talib will be going at U.S. tax-payer’s expense on a visit to Israel. Although these describe the purpose of their trip as informational, I am sure it is for the purpose of incitement of Palestinians. It will be interesting to see how Israel treats these congress-critters.

    I always thought STENA was Swedish owned, so I don’t understand why the tanker was carrying a British flag.
    I also don’t understand Theresa May’s lack of condemnation of the seizure. What a pathetic Prime Minister she has been.
