my husband and i are being treated for Omnicron. Some of our scripts have been covered. Unfortunately many of these are not. Now we have several that were just phoned in and the total comes to 19.00. We have nothing in our bank accounts, no credit cards and no one here we could possibly get a loan from. The best we could do is wait until Feb 1 but we’re too ill to let it go that long.
We need an oximeter as well to monitor our oxygen levels. If anyone could afford to donate to my fundraiser it would be greatly appreciated. I would also be glad to pay it forward once we are on our feet. None of these scripts are narcotics. These are much needed antibiotics and therapeutics. i hated to even ask but it’s too serious to ignore. Unfortunately i also have a negative 24.00 balance with pay pal due because i broke down and used a debit card that covered other items. i can’t do it again. What concerns me is that as long as that negative balance is there it would take up any donations that might come in. This would have to be taken care of first.
President Trump was no spring chick when he ran for President. Neither was Ronald Reagan. Hillary Clinton wasn’t exactly the fountain of youth either. There’s 2 requirements to run for the oval office. You must be a natural born citizen and at least 35 yr of age. The left tried to use Reagan’s age against him when he ran but he won twice in a landslide. We trust the judgement of the American people to decide if a candidate is fit for the office of President. Set aside the politics of left and right and acknowledge this is how we pick our candidates. The people decide and we vote. Some in the GOP tried to use Reagan’s age against him too. Fortunately, the folks always have the final say. The question is answered for us, when the question is, when is young too young? The President must be at least 35 years of age.
The question of age and cognitive ability came up when Reagan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s after he left office. It’s a legitimate question. We’re going to have to set aside politics to deal with an issue like this. Some of the smartest people we know are older folks. They have life experiences and a gained knowledge you don’t have when you’re younger. it’s why we have age requirements on voting, joining the service, getting married etc. There are advantages to being young as well. I’m not making the case that people are young and dumb or old and wise. What i’m bringing up here is related to holding the office of President and that is the cognitive ability of the person we are going to vote for or the person who is already holding office. You can think a candidate is too old or too young and people have made that argument before; Obama was too young or Reagan was too old.
i remember when people wondered if John F Kennedy was too young. He met the requirements and he was elected President. i remember when people wondered if Ronald Reagan was too old but he met the requirements and he was elected President. Our family were Kennedy Democrats. We never questioned his age.We were devastated when John was assassinated. I supported his younger brother Robert, then he was shot.
When it comes to cognitive issues though it’s not a matter of age or personality. You can think Trump is an obnoxious blowhard with a smart ass attitude. You can despise his personality. You can hate his tweets for whatever reason. i’ll give you that if you’re a liberal and voted against Trump. You can probably come up with a dozen or so reasons he shouldn’t be elected President. However, when it comes to this particular issue of cognitive ability we all have to set aside how we feel about a candidate personally. Yes, even me and i think very highly of the former President.
So i’m not referring to Biden’s or Trump’s age here. IF i saw a mental decline in Trump that was fairly obvious in 2024 i would have to think carefully about his being a viable candidate to run. He doesn’t have to be Einstein to run. Nobody has to be a genius to run for President. It’s not a requirement. Are any of us as sharp at 80 as we are at 40? Probably not. Does it mean we’re mentally incapable? Not necessarily. There are medically recognizable conditions we’re all aware of and it has nothing to do with ideology, party affiliation or politics. We’re not to use arm chair diagnosis to attack any President. What i’m bringing up here are serious issues that we should address regardless of party. If Trump exhibited any of the problems we see in Joe Biden i would raise questions myself. There comes a point where the state of our country is more important than any one individual. i’m not talking about a political difference or differences in ideology. What i am saying is that the left should acknowledge the obvious and at least ask for an assurance that President Biden is not having serious cognitive issues. You put it to rest, i will and if it were Trump i would expect the same.
Look, i don’t have anything against Biden personally. i don’t know the man. I remember him from the Clarence Thomas hearings years ago. Personally, i thought he was very nasty towards Thomas. Maybe that was just the usual partisan politics. I never thought Joe was particularly very sharp or even especially likeable but i didn’t follow him very closely either. At this point i’m rather ambivalent towards Biden. i can’t say as i hate him. i would have written the same thing here about any candidate given the same circumstances and that includes Trump whom i highly respect.
An honest broker would admit we have to take a look at the question and set aside politics.We then wait till the candidate or President is examined by a qualified doctor.
We still can’t believe we got it. We’re not even sure where we got it from. We have a pretty good idea of when we got it. We’re going to make sure we take more vitamins from here out. Word is you can get re-infected. I have no idea why that’s the case. i thought we’d have natural immunity. Evidently we do but you can still get re-infected. I’m sorry but that’s extremely puzzling. Yes, it is very transmissible. We hardly had any outside contacts and here we are.
Thankfully my husband’s aide is allowed to come back Monday. We’re both so tired we spent most of yesterday day sleeping. Hey,it’s winter and we’ve had winter warnings. Nobody is going anywhere anyway. We’ve reached our high temp of 16 F. Last night it went down to 8. Honestly, i feel like sleeping again today. Tired and congested. Husband has the sore throat and he’s just as tired. I don’t feel like we’re on the other side of it yet. We’re inching our way there.
My husband’s fever is gone but his sore throat and my congestion want to hang on. I wish we had an oximeter to keep an eye on our Oxygen levels. We’re a little short of breathe but we have no way of knowing if we should be concerned yet. He sits in the living room in the recliner with his Roku watching comedy shows and science documentaries. i come here to my computer room and listen to news podcasts or jams by the Allman Brothers and/or Stevie Ray Vaughn. What a life.Yes, i do take time out to say my prayers. i wish i took more time out to do that.Sorry to say, i’m too easily distracted.
Tonight i’m going to help husband make cabbage soup. Not one of my favorites but he loves it. The first few days i could have eaten the wallpaper off the wall but i have no appetite today; nothing sounds good. I could stand to lose about 20 lb. anyway. Reminds me of when Covid first hit our shores and they were saying how obese people were vulnerable. I was thinking to myself at the time how that’s most of the population of the United States. Oddly my husband and i don’t do fast foods and we don’t eat out. They have a lot of great family owned Italian restaurants here too, maybe 2 fast food chains;i think that’s DQ and Burger King. We live in a borough. The other fast food chains are miles away. We’re on a fixed income. Inflation has hit hard but it’s still cheaper to eat in than out. We’re not missing anything we didn’t do anyway. It’s like doing a boycott of a company we never used in the first place.
Speak of the devil-last night we had a very brief loss of our internet connection. i was sure that was it and our service was over. i’m still waiting for them to shut us down but the outage had to be due to the weather. If our service stays on for the next few days we’ll be fine until we can make a minimum payment. If it doesn’t we have a big issue. We wouldn’t be able to catch up the balance due. I couldn’t stand the loss of connection with the outside world. It would be the end of the blog, email and Dan Bongino as well as our phone service.
That brings me to the fundraiser update for today.
When it ends in 6 days,it ends. i’m not going to try it again. When the upgrade here runs out, it runs out. i’ve managed to make the payment for nearly 3 yrs. We were considering doing a you tube channel and monetizing it to see if we could raise the money to keep the upgrade here but there’s so many you tube channels out there covering the same topics i don’t think we would add anything more worthwhile.i don’t have a team to work with or sources to provide info. :The best i can do is research the internet and try to find topics that aren’t covered 50 ways to Sunday already. i won’t lie; the blogs i follow in the WP reader do a fantastic job of covering the stories that matter to all of us. i usually only write my own analysis/opinion when something gets me so hopped up i can’t let it go. I’ll tell you what, Pelosi’s for the children’s speech is in that category. Did you hear that one? God help us if she’s speaker again. She has plenty of cash on hand to retire on but she seems to prefer power to money. Her district is a disgrace. Why do people keep electing her?
I plan to have more focus on the 22 elections when the time comes. When 24 rolls around,God willing i’m still here, we’re going to support the re-election of President Trump 100% and 24/7.
Well folks, i need to rest for awhile. Here’s hoping to a better day 6. You stay safe yourselves. We don’t have to be paranoid and fearful. We can use common sense and good judgement. IMHO the best thing we can do is stay healthy enough to keep the immune system doing its job. I’ll be back for an update tonight. As long as the internet stays on, i’ll be around. Any questions, feel free to ask. i’m no doctor though. i’ll be glad to tell you what i know from the experience but as always i will add that you talk to your own pcp for your particular situation.
We all know Joe Biden did not campaign. The Biden campaign had an arrangement with the media. They worked very well together. The media fed his lunch bucket image to the public while his campaign lived and died by the lid.
Everyone who knew Joe over the years had a good idea of what he was REALLY like. Joe is one nasty man. i watched him in action as he tried to destroy the appointment of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. The playbook back then was no different than the playbook they use today. They found someone to accuse him of sexual harassment. She vanished after the hearings of course. This should have been a momentous occasion for Thomas and his family. Here is Thomas in his own words that day.
Joe called a reporter an sob.Steve Doocy of Fox News to be exact. Joe would never talk like that! Really? What’s this?
They don’t call him Quid Pro Joe for nothing. Didn’t they impeach Trump for an ALLEGATION of a quid pro quo with the Ukraine? It’s a good example of accusing the other party of what you are doing. The Democrats have done it over and over.
Don’t believe your lying ears? Didn’t Joe tell everyone he was going to raise taxes? Didn’t Joe say he was going to shut down the oil industry? Didn’t Joe say he was going to open the borders to a flood of illegals? Was anyone listening?
Joe shut down OUR pipelines as soon as he took office. They contribute to climate change. They’re bad for the environment. He lets Putin open his pipeline to Germany and makes Europe dependent on that Russian oil. It’s not going to contribute to climate change because it’s Russia? The liberals fall for this stuff all the time. They can’t figure it out?
Joe was a good guy back when too. He was well known for his honesty, right?
The NY Times ran the headline, Biden Admits Plagiarism in School But Says It Was Not ‘Malevolent’. Joe was well known for his fabricated stories too aka LIES. Not hyperbole, not exaggerations, not braggadocio, LIES. Did you look into this?
You voted for Biden? Not too happy with the choice?
You can thank the media for lying to you. I would also like to thank you for not paying attention when he was telling you exactly who he was.
When he was absent from the campaign trail and hid out that should have been a red flag. Pres Trump was out, hands on,busting his butt on the campaign trail all the time. Anyone shocked Biden takes off for Delaware all the time and rarely gives pressers?
Type in Joe Biden and Ice Cream on You Tube. This is how the media covers for Joe. I’m sorry but this isn’t helping our country through the crises we face and feeding the people propaganda and lies for news doesn’t change reality.
Joe wasn’t involved with his son’s shady business dealings. He managed to buy all these homes/mansions on his Senate and VP salary.
Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
i don’t want to leave out how Biden said he knew nothing about his son’s business dealings when he was campaigning.
That’s right,you might not know about these shady dealings. Twitter would not allow any information about Hunter and the laptop to be revealed. The media hid it. We knew though. We read the stories. We saw the pictures. It pays to know who you’re voting for.
