Trump’s coronavirus presser…

leave a comment »

If you’ll recall,  Democrats were  screaming “racist!!”  only a few weeks ago when Trump made the perfectly sensible decision to reject all direct flights from China,  wisely buying the USA time to put plans into action.  Placing VP Mike Pence in charge of the coronavirus response was smart,  as Pence dealt with a MERS outbreak when he was governor of Indiana.   There is a link to the press conference embedded  in this  piece.   What you may notice is that Trump is sober,  reassuring — egads! — dare I say  “presidential”  in his demeanor.

If you doubt the Democrats are attempting  to weaponize  the virus  against Trump,  watch the coverage this presser receives.   Don’t think  the media  isn’t in on this  —  even the Associated Press  admits that  Democrats are distorting readiness for the virus.   And remember that  “ordinary”  flu kills thousands every year in the US.   Here’s a  handy chart for you.   If you take the necessary steps to prevent getting the flu,  you will be unlikely to come down with the coronavirus either.   I am fortunate — my immune system is so wildly overactive that it makes me miserable much of the year,  but I haven’t had a cold or the flu in decades.  If your system is less robust,  take care of yourself!

Final question:  what will the Left do when a quadrillion million Americans  don’t die  of coronavirus?

Dangerous pizza?

leave a comment »

I have burnt my tongue very slightly on pizza once or twice in my life,  but I have never required an emergency room visit due  to a pizza encounter.   Apparently a fair number of people do each year,  and that’s from immediate injuries,  not just gaining weight.

Ugliness revealed…

leave a comment »

Liberals and progressives have long suffered from a lack of true humor.   They laugh at others,  generally those suffering from misfortune.  If the subject has views they disagree with,  the humor becomes ever more brutal.  I thought His Oneness was a terrible president,  dangerous in his lies and using government agencies to attack his enemies,  but I never wished him dead.   The Left wants Rush  Limbaugh dead  and has no hesitation about saying so, with some not even pretending  it’s wrapped up in a joke.

President  Trump has  tweeted encouragement.   I think Brian Joondeph speaks for all of  us here.   Bear in mind that Limbaugh is a  former smoker,  having quit decades before.   Quitting is no guarantee you’ll avoid cancer,  but it certainly ups the odds,  so why not help yourself?   Of course I say this as a former smoker who was never addicted to nicotine  —  I just put them down one day and never picked them up again.   I hope you do the same.

Along  with Joseph  Farah,  I hope El Rusbo not only beats his lung cancer,  but that he recovers at warp speed and goes on walloping the other side for another 30 or 40 years.   I will  pray for  Rush,  like so many millions of his listeners.  You know you are extremely effective when your enemies are left with nothing but hate and death wishes.  Rush Limbaugh certainly knows this,  just as he knows his fate  is ultimately  in God’s hands,  a position he seems quite comfortable with.

This is too good…

…NOT to be true.   Killing mosquitoes  with a fart  would be a useful talent in some parts of the world!

Ice cream for breakfast!

leave a comment »

`I don’t know if  this story  is true, but what fun if it is!  I can see that something very cold could be a shock to awaken you,  but I can’t find the study,  so I reluctantly throw  in with  the boo-birds. Still,  if you wish to occasionally indulge in such an early morning treat,  do so, but top it with fresh fruit,  like blueberries or sliced peaches.   And remember to brush your teeth!

Something else…

…Pres.Trump won’t get credit for is potentially saving the lives of many thousands of kidney patients waiting for a donated kidney by changing the  regulations covering the process.

There have been long lines and thousands of patients dying since the 1980s.   Any president could have have addressed this.   Trump is the only one who actually did.
