Friday, January 22, 2021 – DAY 3 of the Biden-Harris first term
JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS WON THE 2020 ELECTION!

EsOTETvXMAIICaL

“GOOD MORNING AMERICA, HOW ARE YOU?”

11:30am: Well, GOOD MORNING! It’s DAY 3 of the Biden-Harris first term.
TRUMP CAN’T KILL US ALL TODAY! OR TOMORROW! OR EVER!
There is a huge sense of relief knowing there is a sane man with his finger on the Nuclear Football! He won’t kill us on whim, or during a narcissistic psychopathic paranoid episode, or after a drug-fueled night of hookers and blow.
There is a huge sense of relief knowing that there is a Federal Plan to contain the CoronaVirus after ONE YEAR OF GENOCIDE! The GOP Traitors NEVER HAD A PLAN! They sold stock and did shady deals for PPE and respirators, and THE VACCINE!
TOTAL FAILURE THAT COSTS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF US CITIZENS THEIR LIVES!

We spent the night finishing and publishing our previous Blog Post, and setting this Blog Post up. We started just after midnight, then we had a cup of espresso after 6:00am and fell asleep for a few hours. The dogs got fed and went outside. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We drank another cup of espresso, spent an hour on TWITTER sending out “Traitor” memes, and now were recapping the morning. We might be getting hungry….
DRINK COFFEE. DRINK WATER. (It’s a running theme now)

How it started. How it’s going.
Reverend Raphael Warnock was arrested by US Capitol Police
during a peaceful BlackLivesMatter protest in the Senate Building last year.
Today they escorted the Senator from Georgia to his new offices.

The Senate confirmed Lloyd Austin 93-2 as the next Secretary of Defense, making him the first African-American to head the Pentagon. The two “NO” votes were Josh Hawley and Mike Lee.

President Joe Biden signed Executive Orders and just made a fine speech.
Sen Chuck Shumer gave McConnell the finger. The Impeachment Trial will start Tuesday.

Congress reintroduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United.

President Joe Biden nominated Vivek H. Murthy, the surgeon general under President Barack Obama, to be the nation’s new surgeon general. (see below for more about the doctors)

3:15pm: We have HOPE that there will be JUSTICE.

Nancy Pelosi will send the Articles of Impeachment to the Senate on Monday.
THE TRIAL OF DONALD JOHN TRUMP WILL BEGIN ON FEBRUARY 8, 2021.
Senator Chuck Schumer told Mitch McConnell “I’m the Captain now.”

The Trump campaign paid more than $2.7million to persons and firms involved in organizing the Trump January 6th “Stop The Steal” Rally and violent attack on the US Capitol, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

5:50pm: FRIDAY! GOOD SHABBOS!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
We just drank another cup of espresso.
We are watching Dr. Fauci on MSNBC Rachel Maddow’s show.
Dr. Fauci: “I’ve been wanting to come on your show for months and months. You’ve been asking me to come on your show for months and months and it just got blocked. I mean, let’s call it what it is, it just got blocked.”

Not just “refreshing” to hear the TRUTH, it’s such a relief.
NOW THERE IS A PLAN!
NOW THERE IS AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE!
NOW THERE IS SCIENCE AND INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERIENCE!
THERE ARE HEALTH EXPERTS IN CHARGE! (NOT POLITICIANS)
STOPPING THE SPREAD AND CONTAINMENT ARE NOW REAL OBJECTIVES!

410000+ REPORTED US DEATHS as of today. The carnage is nowhere near over!
THESE FEDERAL OFFICIALS AND VICE-PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE MUST BE INVESTIGATED, ARRESTED, AND PROSECUTED! GENOCIDE IS A CRIME!
ALEX AZAR, DEBORAH BIRX, JEROME ADAMS AND ROBERT REDFIELD FAILED!
No Tracking, No Testing, No Plan, No PPE, No Ventilators, No Vaccines, No response.
They allowed the Trump Hydroxycloroquine “Pump and Dump” Con to continue.
They allowed the “Anti-Mask” politics to continue. They supported and lied for Trump.

Alex Azar Jr., the politician, attorney and former pharmaceutical executive, who served as Secretary of Health and Human Services, resigned in disgrace on January 12th.
Deborah Birx retired today. She is no longer part of the Government COVID-19 team.
1. She lied.
2. She amplified Trump’s lies. SHE REPEATED TRUMP’S LIES.
3. She presided over 410,000+ DEAD AMERICANS. GENOCIDE.
3. She PRAISED Trump while he killed us and lied.
US Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams resigned after receiving President (elect) Joe Biden’s request early Wednesday. And dozens of Trump health department appointees also resigned.
Robert Redfiled resigned yesterday and is under investigation for destroying e-mail…..
Stephen Hahn the Trump Commissioner of Food and Drugs, head of the Food and Drug Administration, also resigned. Janet Woodcock was named Acting Commissioner of the FDA by President Joe Biden on January 20, 2021

And Mike Pence. Pence knew. He covered it up for Trump. He lied for Trump. HE IS GUILTY!
FOUR HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND HUMAN BEINGS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE DEAD!

– Trump tried to extort foreign leaders into smearing President Joe Biden – He was Impeached by Congress twice for the Ukraine scandal. And he tried and used the same type of “Quid Pro Quo” with Turkey, other countries in the Middle East, and other foreign leaders.
– Trump tried to sabotage the United States Postal Service with Louis DeJoy and the Board of Governors and interfere with the 2020 election and stop mail-in voting during a pandemic.
– After losing the 2020 election, Trump attempted a coup at the DOJ to overturn the results with two chairs of the Federalist Society practice groups: John Eastman and Jeffrey Clark.
– When that failed, Trump incited a violent attack on the US Capitol that killed a US Capitol Police Officer (and 3 Trump insurrectionists), and an attempted coup against Congress to interfere with the counting of the Electoral College Votes, Murder VP Pence and Members of Congress. Trump watched it on television from The White House.

Baseball Hall of Famer Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron passed away today at the age of 86.
He stomped on the Terra! And he was always humble.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

The (Milwaukee and) Atlanta Braves’ “Hammering Hank” the “home run king” broke Babe Ruth’s record for most career Home Runs on April 8, 1974, “going yard” for #715 on a pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Al Downing. Hank Aaron still holds the record for runs batted in with 2,297 and total base hits with 6,856.
On August 1, 1982, Aaron was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush.
He was inducted as a Georgia Trustee by the Georgia Historical Society in 2010.

He was 86. The Atlanta Braves said Aaron died peacefully in his sleep. No cause of death was given. (AP Photo, File)


So, I posted this a year ago…..
And little did I know,
we wouldn’t leave the house again, or go and see a show,
we wouldn’t be eating’ out, or hanging with our friends,
just staying home and dining in, the boredom never ends.
And I just wrote a little poem that I will share with you,
and hope that someday very soon this will again be true:

Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other – love one another – support everyone*.
Peace and Love! ❤️

A Trip To The EMERGENCY ROOM!

TWO WEEKS AGO:

JUNE 19, 2017 2:00am
A Trip To The EMERGENCY ROOM!
(Not the kind of traveling you want to do)

So how’s your Sunday night going? We had a a fun Father’s Day BBQ Party and then I fell asleep early around 10pm. I woke up at midnight and went online and then did some other late night work in the home office. Around 1:30am I felt a strange (not normal) pain in my chest and 10 minutes later it hadn’t gone away. I took a Bayer aspirin and then had to make a serious decision about my health.

17309131_1852391144787443_1747713814228109722_n

Chest pain (not normal) so a trip to the ER: better safe than dead.
Didn’t want to take any chance that it might be something very serious, so we made the call and got dressed, and drove over to the hospital.

The drive over was excruciating and there was a lot of anxiety and stress along the way.

Not exactly Dr. Kubler-Ross’ “Anger, Denial, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance”, but there was a little bit of soul-searching and “what if?” thinking in that 20 minute car ride.

NOTE: No, I did not drive myself to the hospital. I was lucky enough to have someone available at 1:30 in the morning to drive me to the ER. BIG Thanks for the ride! And they know who they are! I’m also very grateful to have pretty good medical coverage. THANKS OBAMA!

So, the ER Waiting Room was not very busy on Sunday night. There were some other people waiting as I checked in, most noticeably a woman who interupted the guy checking me in because a catheter was stuck and she had to go!

Medical card, ID and method of payment please? My health insurance will cover most of the costs, but there was a big deductible/co-payment required and most likely another bill later. I was taken into a small exam room for an EKG and Blood Pressure/vital sign evaluation (with the door open, because there was only one tech on duty at ER Reception), given my ID wristband, and then I was returned to the Waiting Room.

I was then called by a nurse and led into the working area of the ER. There wasn’t a clean room, so she had me lay on a cart in the hall, and then she turned me over to another nurse and went on dinner break. The second nurse stuck an IV needle in my arm and drew blood for testing. The ER Doctor on duty came and evaluated me, asked me questions, got information from my computerized files and decided which tests to run.

19665568_1875383955821495_2342670075677988596_n

2:15am (see the picture above) Emergency Room at the hospital, evaluated and laying on a gurney cart in the hallway waiting for the exam room to be cleaned. Waiting for test results. My EKG and vitals are ok, but I’m still having the chest pain. The second nurse left me laying on the gurney cart in the hall and when the first nurse came back from her dinner break, she apologized and finally moved me to a clean room about a half hour later

19732363_1875384029154821_7054587357051182136_n

After a short rolling trip, I moved from the gurney cart to a bed in a private ER exam room. They put on the automatic Blood Pressure machine and vital signs monitor, put me on an IV drip, gave me some drugs and an oxygen feed while I waited for test results.

3:16am In a room now being monitored…
waiting for the shift change and X-rays. vital signs good

NOTE: Modern Medicine and Technology is amazing! No need to go to the X-ray room, the machine and the technician come right to you! The guy wheeled in a portable X-ray cart and took a chest shot without me having to get up and/or move.

Everything was fine. All my vital signs and both EKGs were normal, the X-ray and the tests didn’t show anything to worry about. I was able to post to facebook and called my ride and sent them home, knowing it would be hours while the enzyme test was run.

The Doctor on Duty came back and followed up and then I waited. Another Nurse Technician came in and took more blood and gave me some more drugs intravenously. The pain in my chest finally began to go away.

So I used my iPhone to keep busy, but reception was terrible.
So I just deleted a bunch of emails and then tried to rest.

I got a bed (that wasn’t plugged in) when they moved me to the private exam room. It was just really uncomfortable with the IV in one arm and the automatic BP cuff on the other. Also the vital sign monitor was clamped to my index finger and there was a cable attached and it was attached to a digital display (that would “ping” if and when my heart rate dropped). And every so often, the automatic BP cuff would inflate around my arm to the point of almost pain just to remind me that I was .

Don’t like hospitals and waiting sucks. Tried to sleep, but there was too much noise. Finally told them I just wanted to go home. I’m supposed to do a “stress test” but everything else was pretty normal. No explanation for the chest pain, so I’m going home because everything here got really busy after 7am

 

6+ hours and I just want to go home now. No news is good news I guess. They’re running more tests and I’m just getting annoyed with the machine that goes “ping”

19702342_1875383965821494_742480103389851688_n

The Machine that goes “PING!”

That thing sucks! It was the worst part of the visit.

Everything was okay (with just a few exceptions) until the 7am shift and I was handling it really well. After the shift change, they got busy and had a critical patient in another room, so everything else (like the other patients) got lower priority for attention.

I went home because I wanted to and because it was getting too stressful at the ER. I wanted to rest but the heart monitor kept beeping, there was too much noise in the hall, and it was really uncomfortable laying on the gurney with the IV in one arm, the automatic blood pressure cuff on the other and the heart rate monitor taped to my index finger. Decided I can follow up later with the stress test.

They gave me the bill, took my credit card payment and also made me sign a “released against Doctor’s order” waiver. My ride came and picked me up and drove me home.

11:22am

Home again. Feeling okay. After 8 hours in the ER, the next day is a beautiful day!

Thanks again everyone! All the tests came back clean and we are feeling fine. We didn’t want to chance whatever it was that was causing the pain, so we made a trip to the ER to be safe. We are so lucky to be able to get good urgent care! Don’t mess around and get checked out if you’re having a health problem!

NOTE: The royal “we” as in Me (and my shadow)

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU! Thanks to everyone for your concern, kind thoughts, good advice and words of wisdom! I am home and I feel okay. I had some chest pain at 1:30am this morning and had to go and get checked out (better to be safe). So 9 hours, 2 EKGs, a little medication and a chest x-ray later, we are a huge co-pay poorer and everything appears fine. My vital signs are excellent and nothing appears to be wrong. Big thanks to all the folks (Doctors, nurses, techs and staff) at the emergency room and special thanks goes out (to you know who you are) for getting me there and picking me up! So, all is well and we will be “takin’ easy for all you sinners” today.

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU! Thanks Again! Came home and went to bed, woke up and had some food, feel fine with just a little residual pain and a slight headache. Was outside with the dogs for a little bit, but it’s too hot for humans (and pups) again today in the valley…. and it’s only Monday.

Glad to be alive.
Thinking of all my friends with serious health problems!
BE WELL! If you have a health problem, SEE A DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY!

Monday, December 8th, 1941

On December 8th, 1941, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the United States Congress declared war on Japan.

“December 7th, 1941, A Date Which Will Live in Infamy”

Within six months, five battleships and two cruisers were patched and sent to shipyards in Pearl Harbor and on the U.S. mainland for extensive repair. USS Oklahoma, was raised, never repaired and capsized while under tow to the mainland in 1947. USS Arizona and the target ship USS Utah were too heavily damaged for salvage and much of their armament and equipment was removed and used aboard other vessels. Today, the two ships remain where they were sunk, with USS Arizona becoming a war memorial.

Throughout World War II, Pearl Harbor was frequently used in American propaganda:

One further consequence of the attack on Pearl Harbor and its aftermath (notably the Niihau Incident) was that more than 110,000 Japanese American residents and citizens on the west coast were relocated to interior internment camps. In Hawaii, where 150000+ Japanese Americans composed over a third of the population, only 1200 to 1800 were interned in high-security camps such as Sand Island at the mouth of Honolulu harbor and Kilauea Military Camp.

Today, the USS Arizona Memorial on the island of Oahu honors the dead. Visitors to the memorial reach it via boats from the naval base at Pearl Harbor. The memorial was designed by Alfred Preis, and has a sagging center but strong and vigorous ends, expressing “initial defeat and ultimate victory” and it commemorates all the lives lost on December 7, 1941 (both American and Japanese).

USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor

Ceremonies are held annually at Pearl Harbor and although December 7 is known as Pearl Harbor Day, it is not a federal holiday in the United States. The USS Missouri, the last U.S. Navy battleship ever built, where the war ended on September 2, 1945, is now a museum ship moored near the USS Arizona memorial.

The attack on Pearl Harbor, without a declaration of war and without explicit warning, was judged by the Tokyo Trials to be a war crime.

TravelAlert-614x201

The Brussels Airport and Metro are CLOSED due to a Terrorist Bombing!

More than thirty-four people have been killed and 212 injured, after explosions struck Brussels during the Tuesday morning rush hour. Two bomb blasts hit the “Great Hall” Departures Hall of Brussels-National Zaventem International Airport (BRU) and another exploded in Maelbeek Metro Station. Belgium has issued a Level 4 alert, denoting “serious and imminent attack”: the Airport and Metro are closed and the city and the border with France is currently locked down.

These are the Suspects in the Brussels Airport Terror Attack

Brussels-National Airport is an international airport 6 NM northeast of Brussels, the capital of Belgium. In 2015, more than 23 million passengers arrived or departed at Brussels Airport, making it the 21st busiest airport in Europe.

From the Brussels Airport website: http://www.brusselsairport.be/en/

Brussels Airport extends its deepest sympathy to the friends and relatives of the victims of the explosions in the departures hall earlier this morning. At 8am two explosions occurred in the departures hall. The emergency and rescue services are on the scene and are offering the necessary assistance. All flights at Brussels Airport today are cancelled. Passengers are requested to contact their airline for further instructions.

The airport authorities are asking to avoid the surroundings of the airport.
Questions about family or friends at the airport? Call (0032) (0)2/753 73 00

All flights have been diverted.
The airport will remain closed Wednesday March 23.

UPDATE: 2 suitcase bombs exploded in Brussels attacks and a 3rd failed to detonate.
Belgium’s Prime Minister Charles Michel and federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw held a press conference on the attacks in Brussels. Van Leeuw confirmed two of the three men seen in the surveillance photo at the airport are “likely” (deceased) suicide bombers and authorities are actively looking for the third man photographed.
Major cities across the United States have increased security at transit hubs in wake of the attacks in Belgium. The Department of Homeland Security will also announce additional federal plans to tighten security.
