Protesting In 2016

I was watching various news channels today, and I have come to the conclusion about the people who are protesting, whether it is about Trump, or some other “issue” that they do not agree with today.

So here is what I have noticed. Many of the signs being carried seem to be made professionally, you know like at a printers shop. The protest seem to be during the work week. Do not these people have jobs or are they professional students? Perhaps their job is to be a professional protestor? Why do they feel the need to chant slogans from 50 years ago? For example “What do we want?”. “When do we want it”, “Hey, Hey Ho, Ho (fill in the name or issue you are protesting) has to go.” or this one ,” the people united, will never be divided.”

I have also seen a correlation of news/media cameras to protestors in that when the cameras are on they vocal, when the cameras go away, so do the protestors. Forcing me to ask, why do you need media cameras to make your point? Is this just a way to get attention upon yourself? Do you really need the media cameras to get your point across? Is your “issue” so weak you need to pander to the media and their cameras?

Why do the protesters feel the need to destroy property both public and private? Why do they need to commit battery upon people with whom they disagree or who do not agree with them? I see their behavior and I think that it turns off many people who might agree with them, but because of the way the protesters act, it pushes potential supporters away.

So I see these people acting like they have not one iota of common sense, not one original idea, and I wonder if their parents or grandparents are old dirty hippies from the 60’s who taught them to act in this way. Something that does bother me, is the willingness they have to deprive people of their right of free speech, their right to peacefully assemble, and deny people their right to their own political views free from threat of violence.Occupy Oakland Riot/Protestors

My impression is that many of these protestors are college students, you know supposedly educated people. Yet where did they get the idea that this is the way to protest? Destroying property, hitting people, setting fires. Since when does this become acceptable? Those 3 things are criminal acts. Yet it seems that politicians who have not the guts, backbone, or intelligence, are unable to bring themselves to order their police departments to do their job, and clear the streets for fear that they might look like they support law and order. By the way there was a mayor of Chicago back in 1968 who decided that he knew how to deal with the protestors, and he did. For along time after that (which the MSM and Academia referred to it as “A Police Riot”) there were some protest but it was orderly. People got their issue across. No big deal, they had their say, their way. Not so with the protestors of today. Now it is their way, you have no say.

Speaking of politicians, I have noticed that a larger degree, these protests are usually in Democratic controlled cities and towns. Most of these protestors identify themselves as Democrats or align with the Democrat party. When it is all over who suffers? The citizens of that city or town who did not join in the protest, and for the most part did not want the protestors in their neighborhood acting the fools.

What it comes down to is this, I am tired of the Protestors. Go home ,I, and many other people I know, don’t even care what it is you are protesting any more. Come to my neighborhood and act the fool, and there won’t be people standing by while you act the fool. They will come out and tell you exactly what they think about your protest, and then some.

The Liberal Climate Change Scam Exposed With One Meme

Analytical Economist reports predictions from climate change alarmists go awry so often that at this rate the only way they’ll be able to save themselves from embarrassment is if they make their doomsday predictions so far out in the future that they’ll be dead before we can check them on it.

Here are, in our opinion, the top 10 biggest climate alarmist predictions gone spectacularly wrong:
1.Biologist Paul Ehrlich predicted in the 1970s that: “Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make,” and that “The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.”
2.In January 1970, Life reported, “Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….”
3.In January 2006 Al Gore predicted that we had ten years left before the planet turned into a “total frying pan.” We made it.
4.In 2008, a segment aired on ABC News predicted that NYC would be under water by June 2015.
5.In 1970, ecologist Kenneth E.F. Watt predicted that “If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but 11 degrees colder by the year 2000, This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age.”
would take to put us in an ice age.”
6.In 2008, Al Gore predicted that there is a 75% chance that the entire north polar ice cap would be completely melted within 5-7 years. He at least hedged that prediction by giving himself “75%” certainty.
7.On May 13th 2014 France’s foreign minister said that we only have 500 days to stop “climate chaos.” The recent Paris climate summit met 565 days after his remark.
8.In 2009, National Aeronautics and Space Administration Goddard Space Flight Center head James Wassen warned that Obama only had four years left to save the earth.
9.On the first Earth Day its sponsor warned that “in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”
10.And another Earth Day prediction from Kenneth Watt: “At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.”

And no I’m not just nitpicking absurd predictions made by cranks. A study in the journal Nature Climate Change reviewed 117 climate predictions and found that 97.4% never materialized.

Is it even fair to call it climate “science” at that point?

Obama’s Mental Health

To begin, I will tell you I am not a mental health professional health.  I am just a citizen as you, who has now called into question the mental health of President Obama.  I do not write this as a “hit” piece, but rather as one human beings compassion for another.  With that said, I will begin.

As I see it, I have read about the various statements made by President Obama concerning Republicans, Conservatives, Israel, Islam, America, ISIS, terrorism in general, and Christians, Law Enforcement  There are other subjects of his derision. It used to be for me about those subjects, but over time I noticed a pattern, especially in foreign policy.  It made no sense to me, and often seemed to fly in the face of conventional wisdom.  True America’s enemies have changed, but seemed to increase in number.

I thought about this man who was supposed to bring healing to a divided country, make right the wrongs of others to the benefit of the “little” man.  I have decided that his first election was due to a simple notion.  People voted him because they didn’t want to see themselves as a Racist for not voting for a black man.  The Liberal MSM ran cover for this man running as the first black man to run for President, thus they failed as a whole to properly vet the candidate.  But that is not news-we all know that.  II see a man who has never had a 40 hour a week job.  His credentials were he was a Harvard law grad, and a Community Organizer (in other words he was a professional protester).  He came the world of Racial Grievances, his spiritual life seems to be a jumble of confusion.  When he came upon the National stage, he was sitting in a church that taught Black Liberation Theology by Reverend J. Wright.  When he was younger, he had attended a madras in Indonesia, as his step-father was a practicing Muslim.  There are plenty of articles about his past, I am just touching on the items and ideas that got me thinking about this man.

A couple of months ago it was reported that our European allies had begun questioning Obama’s state of mind behind closed doors.  When that story broke it quickly disappeared from the news headlines, but it got me thinking.  What has been going on behind the scenes to make the Allies question his sanity?  I then noticed that terrorism was truly c0ntinuing to increase around the world.  Obama’s tepid response to anything dealing with Islamic terrorism was often a delayed reaction.  From ISIS being a JV team to any response to Christians being starved and slaughtered in Iraq, to a slow ineffective bombing campaign of ISIS.  No matter the crisis, his response was always slow, and for the most part ineffective.  It seemed like he was being slow and irresolute to buy the terrorist time to complete what they could before he was forced by public opinion to do something.

Then as the public uproar over terrorist acts, and deals with terrorist states started to grow, Obama’s team started to make known the administrations policies were going to be.  Then it became clear that the President could not bring himself to say “Islamic Terrorism”.  Instead we got excuses defending Islam.  Then we saw the Democratic party “debates” where none of the candidates could bring themselves to say “Islamic Terrorism” .  Ok, so this must be an ideological thing.

Then the Paris attacks, and prior to Obama going to Paris he tells us that Climate Change is responsible for terrorism.  Bernie repeats this ludicrous statement during a “debate”.  The Dem party faithful along with the MSM fall into line and agree that the weather is responsible for terrorism.  Then Obama goes to Paris, and while there states that mass shootings only happen in the United States, 130 Parisians would like to disagree but are not able due to them being killed in a terror attack a week prior to this dumb statement.

Then off to Turkey for a G20 summit.  Where tells the world the U.S. will accept Syrian refugees, about 20,000 of them.  When it is pointed out that the Syrian refugees are mostly made up of men of military age and that ISIS is in fact infiltrating Europe, and will try to do the U.S. He responds that Republicans are afraid of women and small children refugees.  Again Republicans state their case that ISIS will mix with refugees to enter into the U.S. to commit acts of terror, just like they did in Europe

The men in the pics below are “refugees” who infiltrated Europe

refugerefuge 3refuge 2refuge 4

 

Then this week, we have a full blown terror attack in San Bernardino.  The attack is suspected by a female and a U.S. born Muslim.  Obama’s response, “It might be “work place” violence”.  Despite the FBI has determined it to be in fact a terror attack, Obama and his administration once again turn on the American people and warn us not to say or do anything that might offend Muslims.  In fact, Obama and his Iranian born Chief of Staff Valerie Jarrett have warned FBI director Comey about the language he was using in describing the investigation and the Muslim connection to it.  If I were Comey I would resign effective tonight, and let this administration wallow in its own schizophrenia.

Now I have to wonder, about how Obama is faring under the fact that he has become a reverse barometer.  Everything he says turns out to be wrong, and backfires upon him and his policies.  It almost seems that whatever course he decides upon is incorrect, and has devastating results.  I wonder if reality is starting to crush his fantasy world and he cannot face it, so he just continues this irrational course of action.  Refusing to see that his Presidency is teetering on the brink of failure, and he willfully refuses to see the world as it really is.  I would like to hear from a mental health professional as to what they think is going on inside Obama world.

I am of the opinion that this country cannot wait till the next general election.  I think that  the President is starting to show signs of coming unglued, and the country cannot have leader who is coming apart mentally when the world is on fire from US to Africa to Europe to the Middle East.

A Little Bit About Contra Radio Network

ME2

 

Sometime ago, like in 2013, I was writing this blog and it came to me that I could do the same thing but in a different format, so I did my due diligence.  I came across this site called Blog Talk Radio.  I thought perfect.  I have a blog and now I want to do internet radio.  I announced my intention on this blog, and the response was less than enthusiastic.  No problem, I will do it anyway.  After all there are others doing internet radio, why can’t I.

Easier said than done.  First I had to come with a name for my show.  Buy some extra equipment and learn how to use it.  SO the idea sat there for almost a year.  Finally in June 2014 I decided to do it.  I pre recorded my first show, and asked friends for an eval.  Most were honest,  and that was what I really wanted.  Soon after I decided to “go live”.  Complete with call in number into my “studio”,  and I advertised it on my facebook page.  Nothing really came of it for some time, yet I kept at it.  Today, I have an average of 2100 listeners a month, and over 23,000 downloads of my show as a podcast.

I am humbled that anyone on the planet would really want to hear what I have to say.  I also let my listeners know that I am grateful for their time to listen to me.  After all, they can listen to any podcast they want, there are literally thousands of them to choose from.

Some of my listeners have become internet friends, especially Kirk from Southern California.  He likes my show so much he has donated his graphic design talent to Contra Radio Network and helped me get and design my new website .  The radio show can be heard on Tunein.com or iTunes, as well as on the website.

I also added an RSS feed on this blog to update every time a new episode is published.  Anyway just wanted to update the blog since it has been awhile since I posted anything.  So, yes I am still here!!

The Only 4 Antibiotics You’ll Need when SHTF

 

By Dr. S. Flint March 4, 2015 12:32

clip_image002

The most important thing you should know about antibiotics!

Never expect a doctor to phone-in a prescription for an antibiotic without seeing you first. Why? To ensure your illness is in fact a bacterial infection, as viruses do not respond to antibiotics.

For example Influenza is a virus infection – this is why your doctor will never prescribe you antibiotics for this.

Knowing the difference between a viral and bacterial illness may save you time and money. Here are four tips to help you determine when an illness could be viral or bacterial. Take this advice only when you can’t see a doctor (when SHTF):

  1. Location: A viral illness typically causes wide-spread symptoms. A bacteria usually causes site-specific symptoms, such as those involving the sinuses, throat, or chest.
  2. Phlegm color: A virus may produce clear or cloudy mucous, if any. A bacterial illness typically causes colored phlegm (green, yellow, bloody or brown-tinged).
  3. Duration of illness: Most viral illnesses last 2 to 10 days. A bacterial illness commonly will last longer than 10 days.
  4. Fever. A viral infection may or may not cause a fever. A bacterial illness notoriously causes a fever (normal body temperature is 98.6, a fever is considered greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit).

If you are diagnosed with a bacterial illness, typical antibiotic treatment is 10 to 14 days.

A person is no longer considered contagious once on an antibiotic for 24 hours and any fever has been resolved. (Source – Dr. Linda Petter)

If your symptoms do not resolve, or if at any time you develop a severe headache or neck pain, persistent nausea / vomiting or a fever, be sure to see a doctor promptly.

What Antibiotics to Stockpile

No antibiotic is effective against every type of microbe. Certain ones will kill aerobic bacteria, others are used for anaerobic bacteria, still others are effective against resistant strains, and certain people are allergic to or intolerant of various antibiotics.

Instead of buying 10 types of antibiotics (many having similar substances) you should consider 4-5 with totally different actions, so if the bacteria is resistant to one of them, you have 4 totally different “solutions” to try.

This, of course, only if you don’t have access to a clinic where they can test the bacterial resistance to these antibiotics first.

For example if you took Amoxicillin with no effect, there is no need to try other penicillin based antibiotics (Carbenicillin, Cloxacillin, Flucloxacillin, Oxacillin, Methicillin an so on) so you can exclude a wide range.

But the antibiotics listed bellow should work for most bacterial diseases, including Most Common Biological Weapons (like Anthrax – 90% mortality without treatment in the first 3-6 days).

The 4 Antibiotics You’ll Need

clip_image004

1. Amoxicillin

Amoxicillin is a penicillin antibiotic used to treat many different types of infection caused by bacteria, such as tonsillitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and infections of the ear, nose or throat.

Amoxicillin is also sometimes used together with another antibiotic called clarithromycin – the second one – to treat stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori infection.

Update – at the suggestion of Dr. M (comment area): Augmenting is also a very good option. It’s basically an upgraded amoxicillin (contains amoxicillin + clavulanate potassium) but with increased (mild) side-effects: stomach discomfort with mild cramping and diarrhea. I know it’s OK for most of people. I personally tried it 2 times and I had the bad luck of happening to me.

2. Clarithromycin

Clarithromycin is a macrolide antibiotic. It fights bacteria in your body.

Clarithromycin is used to treat many different types of bacterial infections affecting the skin and respiratory system. If the bacteria seems to be resistant to Amoxicillin, this is the next best thing one should try when SHTF.

Contains Erythromycin and can be substituted with. Don’t take both antibiotics at the same time.

Update – at the suggestion of Dr. M (comment area):  Zithromax (also a macrolide antibiotic) is a very good (better in many ways) substitute for Clarithromycin. But it is less active against Helicobacter pylori.

3. Ciprofloxacin

Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic in a group of drugs called fluoroquinolones.

Ciprofloxacin is useful for anthrax, urinary tract and prostate infections, diverticulitis and many forms of pneumonia and bronchitis.

4. Metronidazole

clip_image007

Metronidazole belongs to a class of antibiotics known as nitroimidazoles.

Metronidazole is used to treat parasitic and bacterial infections including Giardia infections of the small intestine, colon infections, liver abscess, vaginal infections (not yeast), fungating wounds, intra-abdominal infections, lung abscess and gingivitis.

How to store antibiotics?

Every antibiotic has its own particular decay rate, as proteins (oligopeptides) are subject to hydrolyzation, the main form of attack (heat and moisture are the enemy).

So, if you plan on long term storage, the individual foil packs are the best choice. Then pack them in sealed containers with dessicants to be sure.

For how long is it still safe to take antibiotics after the expiration date?

clip_image008

The American Medical Association (AMA) conducted a study and concluded that the actual shelf life of some products is longer than the labeled expiration date.

Manufacturers put expiration dates on for marketing, rather than scientific, reasons,” said Mr. Flaherty, a formal pharmacist at the FDA. “It’s not profitable for them to have products on a shelf for 10 years. They want turnover.”

With time, most antibiotics simply become less effective.

So maybe the question should be “for how long these antibiotics are expected to still have effects?”

Amoxicillin (tablets) – 5 years after the expiration date;

Clarithromycin and Doxycycline (tablets) – 5 years after the expiration date;

Ciprofloxacin (tablets) – 10 years after the expiration date;

Metronidazole (tablets) – 3 years after expiration date;

I hope you found this information useful. This is a guest post from Dr. S. Flint.
