Yo Laura

If that Health Care bill passes, your parents will never be able to afford a nursing home.
And we will not be able to afford it either. We need health insurance and it's going to be devastatingly expensive.

Seeing as you and they believe that family is the most important thing in the world,
And that everyone should be personally responsible for their behavior,
And you all voted for Trump-

You should probably start saving most of your money for their nursing care.
Or start remodeling that big bedroom in your house.
I'm serious.

I have voted for subsidized health care my entire life.
I will not let your diabetic brother go bankrupt because you wanted to humiliate some liberals.
We got the old folks a place to live.  And we would have facilitated their transition to long term care.
But if that's not going to happen- and money gets tight-  I have no intention of ever being your father's personal nursemaid.
Never.  That's y'all's retrograde paradigm.

Elections Have Consequences.  That's what you keep telling everyone.
Prepare for Impact.
It's time to put your money where your mouth is.

Our friend Gina has been interviewed for Sleep Review Magazine.

Food as Therapy for Narcolepsy Patients
“I hit ketosis in seven days and it was like a fire was lit inside of me,” says Dennis, referring to a metabolic state characterized by raised levels of ketone bodies in the body tissues. “I was awake, I was cognizant, and it was such a huge difference from what I’ve felt before.”

ICYMI:  This is the video of her presentation at the NN conference.
I was there.  It's my favorite memory.

When the terrorist is Muslim we emphasize ideology and when he's white we emphasize psychology,

It's about biology.   Bacteriology.  Immunology.  Neurology.

A Mexican Town Is Giving Americans Something Donald Trump Can’t: Affordable Dental Care
Trump’s anti-Mexican rhetoric doesn’t worry the 600 dentists in Los Algodones or the US “dental refugees” they treat, many of whom voted for Trump. “We’re helping the United States take care of the people they are not able to.”
Yeah, this shit is fractally annoying.
All the Olds who move down here at retirement do this.
They have put off dental care all their lives.  So they go to Mexico and get their entire mouths renovated.  And introduce lots of bacteria into their bloodstreams.   And then a few months later they have heart attacks and Medicare pays for a shitload of stents and a decade or two of follow up cardiac care.

See the Vortex.

This is Why

Because all of history has been spent fighting against "Evil".

Endotoxin is the real enemy within all of us.

We need to fight Infection.

Exactly

The insurance lobby knows exactly what's in the bill, but you don't.

Various Sciencey Links

Why Food Smells So Good When it’s Browning
A complex chemical reaction called the Maillard Reaction is responsible

Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50 

The brain detects disease in others even before it breaks out

Stress Induces Endotoxemia and Low-Grade Inflammation by Increasing Barrier Permeability

Type of sugar may treat atherosclerosis

Viral infections decrease muscle health, cause other collateral damage

Major flaws in US drugs with 'accelerated' approval, research suggests
Major flaws have been identified in the fast tracking of some drugs available to the American public without any stringent clinical evidence of their benefits.

edit, one more:
Autism risk linked to fever during pregnancy
Prenatal exposure to maternal fever during the second trimester raised odds of autism spectrum disorder by 40 percent.

Mmmmmm. More evidence of maternal infection....

This is Why

I have been contemplating suicide since 1977.
Not constantly, but you know, every time I got really sick.   Which sometimes lasted long stretches.

I have always had a plan.   How I was going to do it.
When I was young, it was drugs.  Overdosing.
When I was in Seattle, it was CO2.   Die in my garage.  Or jump off one of the many bridges.

When I moved here to Arizona I realized I could eat a bunch of Jack in the Box tacos and pass out in my car on a hot day.   Sleep to death.

These days I think I can just put on my "Nasty Woman" T-shirt and go down to the CircleK and wait for a Trumper to shoot me.

And So it Goes

Yeah, liberals buy guns and get infections and all righteous too.  

This man just shot at some senators playing baseball.
Everything is going to get really bad now.
All the sick, impulsive men in America have just found their excuse to do whatever the hell they please.

Wide-Faced Men More Aggressive

A swollen neck/face is a symptom of parotid gland infection.

He shows symptoms of tooth and nasal infections as well. 
Not to mention the insulin resistance.

A fine assortment of rage triggers.

Shakespeare Knew

“Men willingly believe what they wish to believe.”
-Julius Ceasar

Science says so too.

Why Old Men Hate Science

The weaker sex? Science that shows women are stronger than men 
When it comes to longevity, surviving illness and coping with trauma, one gender comes out on top.

Yes, this is because women's immune systems react less to bacterial infection.

The Bottom Line

Sharia Law in America isn't real.

You know what is real?

Men with head infections and delusions and access to powerful weapons.




Update: Oh Good Grief... Mercy Mercy Mercy...
A neo-Nazi with explosives and a framed photo of Timothy McVeigh is not a threat, judge rules
Federal officials found out about Russell after his roommate, a former neo-Nazi who is believed to have converted to Islam, admitted killing two other roommates.
I'm just gonna guess there was a lot of empty chip bags and soda cans in that apartment too.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure one decent dentist could have prevented this bullshit.

All I need to know

The GOP don't want mentally ill people to be able to get treatment.
But they do want them to be able to buy guns.

Speaking of Old White Men...

...with long term head infections (parotid gland, left cheek, has been swollen for years)-

Sen. John McCain’s bizarre questioning of Comey

Yeah, that's my Senior Senator.
Apparently the medical professionals in my state are finally concerned.

But of course...

Oh, this explains so much.
Can't believe I didn't think of it...

Low-level drinking during pregnancy influences babies' facial development 
"We know that alcohol use in pregnancy contributes to how the face is formed in the womb, said one of the study's lead authors, Evi Muggli. "We found when analysing the detailed images in our study, that any alcohol in pregnancy, even low amounts can subtly influence facial development."

State of the Insanity

My husband's company is laying off 1100 people.
There is a good chance he will be fired next week.
And there's a possibility the Obamacare repeal will get passed too.

He's a 49yo diabetic.  (Lost his pancreas function after a very powerful antibiotic regimen.)
He's the most obsessively responsible person I have ever met.
Nonetheless, we are fucked.

But we have a new puppy.
So there's that.


Archer.  Sterling Archer.  LOL.
