Biden Erupts

Does this make him a far left radical?
Gotta love them pharmaceutical lobbyists running congress!

Newer versions of insulin retail for between $175 and $300 a vial. Most patients with diabetes need two to three vials per month, and some can require more.

More UN Madness
North Korea is going to chair the World Disarmament Conference
"Yes, the world’s foremost weapons proliferator will preside over the 65-nation World Disarmament Conference, most famous for producing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty back in 1968."

Does anyone take the UN serious anymore?
I sure don't.

Pennsylvania Court- Mail-in Voting Unconstitutional
Pennsylvania court declares state’s mail-in voting law unconstitutional, in win for Republicans
"The state’s Democratic attorney general promised a swift appeal and insisted that the court’s action won’t have an immediate impact on elections this year"

Here's The thing
I do my entire banking and savings accounts online (not in person). File all my taxes online (not in person). Renew my car registration online (not in person). Order my prescriptions, Medicare information and transactions, hospital appointments/records/test results, car/homeowner insurance and charge purchases online. None of these are in person.

Just what makes voting so special that I'd be forced to appear in person?

Toxic Chemical Traced Back To Allentown's Sewage

A number of people might have read our local media's coverage but 'politico' went into much greater detail. For anyone interested I highly recommend reading the following article. It's so much more complete
How a toxic chemical ended up in the drinking water supply for 13 million people
"New Jersey’s largest drinking water supplier discovered a toxic chemical in the river where it gets water for hundreds of thousands of customers, setting off a major search for polluters that led back to a Pennsylvania wastewater treatment plant and a South Jersey company."

The reason for me posting this is to make people aware although water treatment plants process and treat water's hundreds of chemicals, thousands more are not required by the EPA.

Few drinking water treatment plants are not located downstream from other cities waste water treatment facilities. The further downstream one is located the greater chance more chemicals will be introduced into the stream. Meaning not only possible contamination from storm drains, ground runoff or industrial byproducts but as well medicines thousands of people took released by their urine upstream.

I highly recommend people install an osmosis filter in their home. Often times it filters the city water even cleaner then bottled water. Mine has a sediment filter, 2 sizable charcoal filters before it goes into the osmosis membrane. Then into a one gallon storage tank. When I open the separate osmosis tap on my sink the water leaves the tank going through a charcoal filter one last time. I also put a 'Y' connector on it to my refrigerator's water and icemaker line. This also frees up all the plastic bottles I'd otherwise generate. Use reusable stainless thermos bottles instead.

Here's a video I made years ago.

It is estimated that over a 70-year lifespan, a person drinking tap or mineral water will be ingesting about 200 to 300 pounds of rock that their body cannot use.  While most of these microscopic rock minerals will be eliminated from our bodies regularly, some will be stored in our tissues becoming toxic. The primary culprits are calcium salts and over time they can cause gallstones, kidney stones, bone & joint calcification, arthritis, and hardening and blocking our arteries. The presence of other hard metal minerals (some are radioactive!) is suspected to cause other degenerative diseases as well including eye glaucoma, cataracts, hearing loss, emphysema, diabetes, obesity and cancer. These minerals available, especially in "hard" tapwater, are poorly absorbed, or rejected by cellular tissue sites, and, if not evacuated, their presence may cause arterial obstruction, and internal damage.(Dennison 1993, Muehling 1994, Banik 1989)

Distillation systems are comparable in contaminant removal, however since many synthetic chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides and chlorine solutions have boiling points lower than water, these chemicals will vaporize and can be carried over into the product water container actually making the collected purified water even more concentrated in those particular chemicals.

Reverse osmosis is also the only purification system that can remove the majority of dangerous Pharmaceuticals & Drugs from our drinking water. Reverse osmosis removes many contaminants that countertop and faucet carbon filters cannot including viruses, bacteria, pesticides, arsenic, fluoride, drugs, cryptosporidium, mercury, nitrates, microbes, heavy metals, all radioactive materials, and many more.

Meat Loaf's Last Video (Was Removed)

Sorry, it appears the user took down the video. This happens all too often for one reason or another. I wish it wouldn't, but it does.

A Coup In Plain Sight

Basically if Republicans win control of congress in November they plan to impeach Biden by any means possible. Investigate and put members of the January 6th commission in jail. I'm not hearing what they plan to do to help the U.S. but rather how to destroy the Democrats for once and all. Ought to be interesting to see what voters decide in November.

I do know one thing. Depending how things go, the United States will undergo change like we've never seen before.

Today's (So Called) Music Sucks

This proves it.

So even the music corporations are buying up "old" music. Could it just be because people can't dance to the new stuff? Sing-a-long with it? Relate their lives to it in any way? Seems to me no matter how much naked twerking and high tech crap they put into them it can't polish a turd of a song. Tell me these "older" songs don't bring out much more intense happiness and enthusiasm then today's machined beat box garbage. Here's a excellent sampling of why the older tunes will forever remain more popular no matter which country you come from.

That's some damn good stuff!

Now you see why,
Hip hop is slop,
Rap is crap.

Pennsylvania Had Record Year For Gambling Revenue
Pennsylvania set state record for gambling revenue in 2021
"Pennsylvania set another annual record for gambling revenue in the era of online gambling and sports betting, state regulators said, reporting that casinos and other operators won more than $4.7 billion from gamblers in calendar year 2021 in one of the nation's largest commercial casino states."

When all this began back in 2004 (online gambling later added in 2019) we were all promised this was a panacea solution to our ever increasing property taxes. I must have missed something. Anyone see their taxes go down instead of increasing nearly every year since then?

I know a bait and switch when I see one. People usually get jail time instead of being rewarded by getting elected. Not here in Pennsyltucky!

What do you call a lawyer with an IQ below 70?
A politician.

How many politicians does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. They will never allow change, even if it makes the world a brighter place.

A child asked his father "Dad, do politicians ever tell the truth?"
The father answered, "Only when they call each other liars."

On Board A Trident Submarine

The U.S. has 14 armed with 24 ballistic missiles each. They also have a collection of torpedoes as well. These underwater machines run about half as noisy as Chinese subs. Makes me think of them as being space stations beneath the sea. Although much more deadlier. Then again we can't be sure what's up there either, can we?

I'm not sure knowing this makes me feel safer or less so!

Pennsylvania Needs To Change Covid Reporting
How COVID hospitalization reporting will change in New York
"Gov. Kathy Hochul on Monday announced hospitals, beginning Tuesday (01/04), will provide separate numbers on how many people are hospitalized because of COVID-19 and those who were admitted for other reasons, but subsequently tested positive for the virus and may have a mild or asymptomatic case."

Personally I don't give a hoot how many positives there are. These numbers don't reflect what is actually going on. Hats off to the new governor for her questioning the data. Massachusetts will be doing the same. Wish Pennsylvania would too.

Maybe not such a good idea in other ways either.
