Spin Zone / Re: I have no taste.
« on: July 20, 2024, 12:53:11 PM »
K, so an update on having no smell or taste. It came on gradually last October-November. I tried the covid protocols but now all the docs say it probably wasn’t covid because of the gradual onset. Sometimes docs don’t listen very well. I’ve mentioned it to every medical professional I’ve encountered and they have no idea.

The ENT looked up my nose for polyps and found none. If I’d had them they could have been removed. He’d done that for a patient who was a wine taster by profession.

So his last ditch guess is a tumor (very rare) on my olfactory bulb. He ordered an MRI, which I can’t bring myself to do as it would have contrast and seems like diagnostic overkill.

The only things I can taste are very bitter. I can taste parsley, and really bitter IPA. I can detect sweet and salty. I can smell essential oils (eucalyptus, lemon, peppermint, etc.) but can’t smell the real thing, like grated lemon rind.

I just feel stuck, but like someone somewhere should be able to suss out the cause.

I'll be the bad guy here, so please forgive me....  you want to get a diagnosis but you won't have an MRI.  GET THE MRI...

I'm not going to celebrate anybody dying of pancreatic cancer. But I won't miss her.

My kid has been here for 6 hours. He's already crashed his bike, complained about wallking, and met some other kids.

She’s a pilot?  How did I miss (or forget) that?
She is instrument rated with over 1700 hours.  600 in our C-172 and 1,100 in our Bonanza.  She got her ppl at 53 yrs old and her IR at around 60.  She is 67 now so that 1,700 hours was done in 17 years.
That's why I keep her around.

It’s getting harder and harder to give them the benefit of the doubt.  At best, they are unforgivably incompetent.  I don’t know which is greater; the odds they are that evil or the odds they are that incompetent.  Either way, the lot of them need to be fired.

Agreed. Too incompetent to be real incompetence for me.

I wish I could be like Rush, but I feel like Clay Travis today.

I was pissed at Trump for what he did with DeSantis, and I was one of 20,000 Wisconsin voters who voted for DeSantis in the spring primary.

But fuck these democrats. Fuck the vile left. Fuck Biden. And fuck every liberal I know. Trump must win, and this is war.

A little girl asks her mother, “Mom, how was I born?”

The mother smiles and replied, “Once upon a time, your daddy and I decided to plant a wonderful little seed. Daddy put it in the Earth and I took care of it every single day. After a while the seed started to grow more and more leaves and in a few months it turned into a beautiful healthy plant. So we took the plant, dried it, smoked it, and got so high that we forgot to use a condom.”

Spin Zone / Re: Question for the liberals
« on: July 04, 2024, 05:00:10 AM »
This is what I don't get.  They hate Trump but can't say why.  He is a threat to democracy, he will suspend the Constitution and elections and stay in power, he hates everyone who is not a white male, and on and on.  Yet when I ask for an example of any of these, they revert to insults and fall back on they hate him.  They can never give a specific example of anything remotely pointing to why they hate.

There is one “liberal” (not a woke leftist and that is important) who does and that is Bill Maher. When asked why he hates Donald Trump so much he always says the same thing: Because he didn’t concede the election.  Maher believes that by questioning the 2020 election result Trump was thwarting “democracy” and trying to hold onto power like a dictator.

There are other things he doesn’t like about Trump but all the rest is simply him buying the mainstream media lies about Trump being a far right extremist. Maher’s problem with Trump not graciously conceding is a legitimate point even if you don’t agree with it. Trump did refuse to accept the result. But he didn’t order the military to forcibly prevent Biden from entering the White House so Maher opining he “behaved like a dictator” is bullshit.  Nevertheless he articulates a cogent thought that is his own, unlike most Dem Trump hating zombies.

I heard on the radio this evening that many of the hard (lunatic) left are saying that since the USSC has decided presidents have immunity that senile joe should have President Trump assassinated.

The democrat party has devolved into a bunch of mentally insane, freaks.

https://redstate.com/bobhoge/2024/07/01/bbc-presenters-despicable-tweet-if-i-were-biden-id-hurry-up-and-have-trump-murdered-n2176245

They are fucking stupid idiots. All SCOTUS did was uphold the Constitution and 200 years of convention. NEVER has a president been criminally charged for actions he took while in office, by convention, AND there is a protocol in the Constitution for holding him accountable for allegedly illegal, immoral or unconstitutional acts: It's call impeachment and is up to Congress. 

We can't have all sorts of random local partisan DA's hauling the chief executive or ex chief executive into court.  Our country would be crippled and dead if we allowed that because no one except a total bought and paid for puppet of an oligarchal cabal would ever run for president. Power would be completely and permanently removed from the People.

The left is SO FUCKING STUPID.  The kind of persecution they're heaping on Trump, if legitimized by SCOTUS, would be turned against any left-wing populist politician outsider who dared challenge the Uniparty.  Bernie Sanders for example.  The outsider left is just as vulnerable to that shit as MAGA is. The IRS scandal was not just against conservatives, they also targeted lefties who didn't play ball with the powers that be.

All that being said, SCOTUS should have outlined what official acts are instead of punting it back down to the lower courts. It still remains a bit too open to being abused by partisan courts and doesn't really help Trump that much, but the delay in Trump's cases might help if they can be pushed past the election.

God, the Democrats are so fucking stupid.

SCOTUS killing it today. Chevron was also overturned. This is huge.

P.S. I went over to Democratic Underground to see the liberal meltdown. It's great, but also scary how delusional the left is. Some of them legitimately thought Trump was going to physically attack Biden last night. The mental illness there makes me wish for the return of insane asylums.

Companies need to just stay the hell out of politics. Focus on your product and customer service.  Anything else alienates half of their customers.  And since Tractor Supply has more actually productive people as customers, in their case, being woke pisses off well more than half their customers.

A sailor, soldier, and Marine walk into a bathroom to take a piss.

After finishing up, the soldier washes his hands with lots of soap and water, taking a long time and really scrubbing. He then uses a huge wad of paper towels to dry them off completely. He says to the others, "In the Army, we're very thorough."

The sailor then washes his hands quickly, with a small amount of soap and water, then dries them with a single paper towel. The sailor then brags to the others, "In the Navy, we are very efficient."

The Marine finishes up and walks out without even looking at the sink, soap, or paper towels. He looks at the sailor and soldier and tells them, "In the Marines, we don't piss on our hands."
