Say it. You know you want to. Nobody will see it here anyway, lol. This thread is for light chat and discussion, questions, deep thoughts and ponderings or what you had for lunch etc. Don't be shy, spill the beans. Hey, that reminds me of another classic thread.



Hmmm    ;D

I can't help thinking of the billions of souls, people; who live each day oblivious to reality and do not know what is happening. I pray for those that are blinded to the glorious gospel of Christ by the god of this world. It really is time to wake up folks. Our children depend on us.


2 Corinthians 4:3-4 KJV - 2 Corinthians 4 King James Version (KJV)
 
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.

3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.


5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

King James Version (KJV)

Ah yes, everyday things to do. I dropped out of society and I don't even drive anymore. I have driven close to 500,000 miles as pizza guy, courier, parts delivery and cruising to smoke a joint and hear my car stereo, lol. I really never worked on cars. Kinda strange for bein' a parts man.

Still workin' on that thing? Sheesh yer a slow mechanic, lol. Just kiddin' brother. How serious is it? You know you're takin' to a wholesale O.E. WD retiree that can get the best price on expensive parts. I give you the contact, shipped to door usually in one day. Don't pay retail !!! Seriously for most hard parts like sensors, electronics, aftermarket name brand parts and/or Original Equipment parts.

Post by: joechan82 on August 04, 2018, 09:58:41 pm
I am at my Mom's house in Maine. Had to turn in the rental car. Dad's old truck needs a radiator, so it is in the shop. Fortunately for me, the mechanic is within walking distance. 
Title: Re: What's on your mind? Chat Thread
Post by: patrick jane on August 04, 2018, 10:31:27 pm
I sold radiators and a/c parts for 8 years. The best at the best price. Autozone and Advance and all the parts stores and dealerships and repair shops bought from us in St. Louis. I'm an expert on radiators. I still know the bosses at the places I worked. I would just give the number and who to ask for and they'd ship it to you. Not all parts but the expensive ones that come up, you should all at least check with me. Again, just like this and TF, I make nothing off getting people the right parts at great prices.

Yeah, I tried to send you a message earlier PJ, i’m Not sure if it sent, also I guess I gotta figure out how to individually quote to directly reply to a post. Anyway, @joechan82 you’re gonna have to run a little faster to get away from me haha, good to see you though

For now guys, we have this chat thread to communicate in. Don't reveal any secret codes though, lol. We can see a lot but first to quote a post IT IS ON TOP OF THE POST YOU ARE QUOTING.  It's not at the bottom right like TF and every other forum in creation. But at the top of the thread pages you can see who is on a thread.

Also from the Home screen at the bottom it shows guests and you can click and see what everybody is looking at. I can get viewers and I do it about 4 or 5 times a day when I pop in here. Let's pray we get a brand new member that none of know.

Guys, check things out but don't really follow through on any big changes but you can do little things if you're confident about it. I made 1Mind an Admin a few days ago and now Joechan. 3 Admins is enough so that with the three of with part time visits her we can figure this place out. I even tried on my phone it was ok. Plus it's a secure site, go figure.

I like learning this stuff and playing around. I can't believe this is free !!! What a country.

Well, actually Joe and I and others got all those people by inviting them. People don't seem to just sign up much. I will be so happy if we get a member here that we don't know. I will treat them so good !!!

Ah, I see. I don’t know of any forum goers anymore other than the TF crowd. I could probably get my brother-in-law in here for the conspiracy aspect, but the aspect of treating him good isn’t as funny to me lol.

Yes we do but that's my little secret, lol. It took me three months at TF to try it and then perfect it. Twitter only lets you send like one per day for each thread. But if I type a small message or anything, even a space or a period, it goes through every time. Twitter don't do much though nor Facebook. Focus on the Google button and it will pick up images of the first post in the thread and you can do it as many times as you want on every thread topic.

I get tired of doing it and it's like a job sometimes but I like it. I only do the Google button 4 or 5 times a day for each thread and I don't mind doing it. I like seeing how many viewers I can get in a 20 minute period. My record here is 69 and at TF 103. I'm not hard to please and call me crazy but I just love doing this all day while listening to educational stuff and posting.

The bonuses are many since I enjoy spreading sound doctrine and the gospel of the grace of God and all that includes plus the truths of conspiracies and the shape of the earth.

The Google +, Facebook and Twitter buttons to click on are ONLY on the first post of each thread. Put images on new thread first posts and add them now if you see any that don't or change one you don't like or if you find a better one. These are all only suggestions as I do it but you guys can to to learn and play around.

I’ll keep all that in mind. I feel like I should make a practice thread so we can all figure out some of the mod stuff here. I’ll be a guinea pig, everybody do me a favor and DON’T accidentally permaban me lol.

I would type my words and watch them post.
I enjoyed other people’s words the most.
Now with sorrow it’s been declared,
   The chat box is in horrible despair!

Patrick didn’t mean to kill it and Joe will bring the repair.
I mean, PJ didn’t will it, but the chat Box is in disrepair.

PJ was quick to use his head, for now we have this chat box thread.

That's correct and thanks for the prayers. 

My mom does live next door (in my home) and I live with my daughter, Megan.  IF my mother can ever get my nephew to leave, I will be moving back over there.  I won't hold my breath over ever being able to move back to my home though.  I would go homeless before I would ever share a home with my nephew.

However, my mom does come over most mornings for coffee and breakfast.

I see you have figured out God is in control.  As your story, I too have experienced things happening that might not naturally have happened.

One day, I was angry at someone and had written a letter (not a good one)and was fixing to print it. Having never had problems with this printer, I was surprised that it would not print my letter. I tried for close to 1 hour trying to fix the printer and finally gave up. For some reason, a notion that I should delete the letter popped into my head. Thinking about it for a while, I finally deleted the letter that evening..The next day, I had to use the printerfor business purposes. To my surprise without any further action on my part, the printer worked perfectly and it has continued to work without fail to this day.

God does work in mysterious ways.

Have a great day Lori.

Yes, they deleted my main channel with 550 subscribers and 175 videos. I have two back up channels but now I can't access those either. They admitted censoring FE and they harass FE channels and conspiracies. The ones they censor are real and true, the other ones they don't mind. You can promote satan worship and get coddled by YT but flat earth, no way because it's true. The government and intelligence agencies decide what's ok or not as always. That will never change. I talked about in your Intro thread too.

Youtube is pretty lame with their censorship.  They tend to censor anything conservative.  Most FE proponents--not all-- tend to fall into the conservative camp.  I believe that is why they are getting censored.

I have a bother-in-law that puts up KJVO material.  That material isn't controversial enough to get censored.  His channel is 13 years old.

I see that the forum has changed its name, since when I first joined the forum. I think that the "new" name is an improvement...


In preparation for Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, all Trump-opponents get banned from Ronpaulforums.com for made up reasons. So on 4 March I was banned for “insults”, which I didn’t...

I’ve been accused of being a “commie” numerous times by the biggest troll there, Swordsmyth, in violation with forum rules, who has made than 61,000 Zionist propaganda posts in less than 3 years, obviously with the support of Ronpaulforums.com: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?541107-Top-Bolivian-coup-plotters-were-School-of-the-Americas-grads-served-as-attach%E9s&p=6891247&viewfull=1#post6891247


At the end of February 2019, Davidicke.com “converted” to a new format, but instead of converting the threads, the old forum was frozen, and a completely “fresh” forum was started: https://social.davidicke.com/

In June 2019, I couldn’t log in to the old forum anymore, with the result that I can’t view threads in “private” sections, find my posts back or use the forum search...
The old forum actually had a huge amount of valuable information, which is impossible to find now.


Another forum where I was once an active member has also disabled members from posting about a year ago: http://madinamerica.com/forums/

I yearn to be with God so much. I don't like this world and how it is. So much evil and suffering and pain. Life goes by so fast and it's over. Even 100 years is short. Just thinking

It does for me. I saw so many different colored flowers, just beautiful. The sun felt great. It was windy but still nice outside. I heard the birds singing. I sat in a gazebo for a little while too.

They have made people here, in this building, too afraid to go outside. Not me though.

I miss living in the country. That's what I'm used to. I come from a family of sharecroppers and farmers.

Things are good here from God's blessings. I feel like I've plateaued again and God has more in mind for me. I want to earn a degree in theological studies and possibly in Social Work and Counseling. I don't believe I can be a Pastor or Preacher but who knows what God knows? I hope you are all well and joyful. I pray that all of your pains and ailments, concerns and worries and sadness flee from all of us here in Jesus' name, amen.

What horrible stories I read...

Chaplain Mark Schmidt’s 25-year-old granddaughter dying.
Lori Bollinger’s son in a motorcycle accident.


Yesterday, I saw a homeless man that I’ve regularly seen since 2015 (I don’t think that he remembers that I was eating with the homeless because my bank accounts had been illegally blocked). I think that the last time I saw him was some 3 weeks ago.

I noticed a shocking change... that one of his legs was amputated.
On my short question “What happened?”, he replied that he couldn’t explain to everybody, because this would make him break down and cry...

I'd like to ask a question for those with medical experience. Last November or December, I went to my regular doctor appointment. Then a nurse took me to a side room and said that they needed to swab me. I asked what for and she said to see if my meds were working. I thought that was strange. I've never had a doctor or nurse ask to swab me for that reason. I said, do I have to? Because I didn't feel right about it and it felt too intrusive. She said, no you don't have to. So I didn't. Is this something that is done to check to see if meds are working? This was right before the CV thing.

I see the doctor at least 8 times a year and never have I been asked for a swab. Sounds strange to me.

After I made my previous post, I remembered that I forgot to add about your recent problems.
In 2014, I suffered 40 separate days of diarrhoea because of food poisoning, always preceded by a fever starting about 3 hours after eating the poisoned food...

I can remember sadistic psychiatrists checking the blood of their patients/victims to check if they were taking the prescribed psychiatric drugs (that only have adverse effects)...

I'm used to having bloodwork done to check Vit. D and B12 levels that have been very low because of cancer and chemo and radiation treatment. But I've never been asked for a swab before this happened to check to see if my meds are working. That was a first and I didn't agree to it.

I'm a little worried about my doctor appointment next week. Will they make me be tested for Covid 19 if I don't have symptoms? Also I heard that there is a woman who will be sitting in observing or something while I talk to my doctor. I don't know who she is and what her purpose is. Has anyone else had someone sitting in and observing during the appointment? I don't want anything forced on me. I don't think I like the idea of someone else in the room when I'm talking to my doctor because of doctor patient confidentiality.

I've had student people sometimes but that is all and since I don't trust Dr. I wouldn't allow anything else.

They wanted to test me long ago no matter if I had symptoms or not because of how at risk I am...I refused and there wasn't any pressure about it then, of course things change every day so you will just have to let us know if they're not forcing the test on people.

They probably consider me high risk because of my age and weakened immune system from cancer. They tried to swab me already but I refused that. My son has the same doctor that I do and he said that it wasn't a student but someone with some kind of authority.

It looks like "they" are planning some kind of forced medical action against Truthjourney...

In my experience you don't have to agree with somebody being present when you talk "confidentially" to your doctor.
Maybe the best way to deal with this situation is to first ask some questions about the why and who of the other person present. By mail as this is fast and this gives you some sort of "evidence".

You can easily give some reasons for why you want an explanation (you have already posted some reasons in this thread)...

I don't "trust" any of them. I don't think that doctors are "evil" in general, but think that they have been brainwashed by big pharma and don't know the true meaning of what "health care" should be.
Doctors in the past have advised me to look for another doctor if I didn't trust the current one (the last time I spoke to a doctor was in 2015, when I demanded help when the authorities illegally blocked by bank account and I was severely starving).

I do advise you to be careful, and don't seem too inflexible. They can only force medical action on you if you flat-out refuse!
Your biggest "weapon" is to ask questions. Doctors really hate that because it forces them to think about the Hippocratic Oath and that they have the obligation to never harm their patients...

I don't know for sure what's going on and I won't know until I go to my appointment next week. I don't think they are planning some kind of forced medical action. My son said she was in the room when he was talking to the doctor. That is unusual. It hasn't happened with me yet. He didn't seem to be concerned about it. I told him that he needs to be concerned because of doctor patient confidentiality. He is more trusting than I am. Our doctor is a good doctor. The best doctor I've ever had. But I know he's under pressure to follow certain guidelines in order to keep his practice open.

I can't say that I'm not at least a little worried. I mean the way things are going, what are they going to make doctors do? They keep talking about tests and vaccines.

Even if they are planning some kind of forced medical action, which I don't think they are, I'm not the kind of person to force anything on. I might be 63 years old but I can still take up for myself. They didn't get their swab and they're not getting anything else from me other than routine bloodwork which should tell them whatever they need to know.

I've had problems with doctors in the past and for years. They kept telling me that nothing was wrong with me and one internal medicine doctor actually told me that all I needed was to be on antidepressants when in fact I had breast cancer that hadn't been diagnosed yet. He asked me, well, aren't you depressed? I said, how am I supposed to feel when I feel sick all the time. Am I supposed to be all smiley and bubbly? So he wrote a prescription for antidepressants which of course didn't help at all. That's why I wasn't diagnosed till stage 3 when the cancer presented on the skin and could be seen. The doctors could no longer deny that something was going on with me, unless they were blind.

It happens more often than people are aware of especially if a person doesn't have insurance, Medicaid, Medicare and can't pay out of pocket. Also, I've noticed that many doctors don't take women as seriously as they do men. It's almost like they think of women as a different species or something.

Another example, many years ago I was having chest pains so I went to a local ER. The doctor asked me if I was pregnant and having heartburn. Like I can't tell the difference between real chest pains and heartburn. That was insulting. I told the doctor that I can't get pregnant because I had my tubes tied. He said that there was still a chance that I could be pregnant. I wasn't pregnant. And by the way, a woman knows when she's pregnant especially after having three children and I certainly know the difference between heartburn and real chest pains. He basically dismissed me and sent me home. No tests or anything.

I could tell so many stories about how "stupid" drs have been with me.  When I was pregnant with our 3rd, the Dr. said, "yes you are pregnant", the next appointment, "no you are not pregnant" the next appointment "yes you are pregnant", etc. till it was painfully obvious and a few months later I had a baby in my arms.

I was working 40-48 hrs and going to school 19-20 semester hrs. and was getting sick.  I  was not eating or sleeping I went to the Dr. and he said, you are fat and lazy do more and eat less.  I ignored the do more since it was a physically demanding job and I didn't have time to add anything new to my life and said to him, "I literally eat 2 to 3 bites of food a week, how do you want me to cut back on what I eat?" he said, "when you do eat, eat less."  lol went to another Dr. he diagnosed me as borderline anorexic and told me to force myself to eat which worked.

Another time, I went to the Dr. I told them things were getting worse on the meds they gave me.  They called me a liar until things got seriously dangerous as in could die from it and even the ER said so, and the Dr. just called me a liar and insisted I continue treatment as ordered by him.

One more story then I am done so I don't allow it to get me angry...I was pregnant with our first, had a terrible rash that itched me to death.  Dr. gave me a prescription, when I read the warnings it said to NEVER take if pregnant, so I asked the Dr. about it...he responded, "Don't question me, I am the Dr."

Oh and don't forget the Dr. who told me to be quiet, that I was "too ignorant to know my own symptoms" and when my husband tried to talk to him, he told my husband that he was "too ignorant to know my symptoms", that we needed to be quiet so he could tell me what my symptoms were (first visit with that Dr.) and what he was going to do to fix it....how is that for good medical care?  and that is just a few of the examples from my own life.  I don't trust them and don't foresee any time I will.

A doctor who can't determine and make up his mind about whether a woman is pregnant or not. Yeah, that's a stupid doctor.

This reminds me of when I went to the hospital in labor with my third child. I had already signed papers beforehand to get my tubes tied. It was something that I felt that I needed to do for some reason. It was just a feeling I had.

I got to the hospital early that morning. After having two children, I knew something was wrong. All through the pregnancy I was told everything was fine and then I was told that the baby was in position, nothing to worry about. But something was wrong. I told the doctor and the nurses that something was wrong and that I would need a C-section. They wouldn't listen to me. They said, every pregnancy is different. There's nothing wrong. This is normal. The doctor said, "what makes you think that you need a C-section? You don't want that because it's major surgery". I said, "Because I know. It's not exactly what I want. But that's what will have to be done". Of course you know, he's the doctor, he has the degree, so he dismissed what I said. So I'm laying there for hours and hours. Things got worse. The contractions would stop and then start again, off and on. I was just miserable and in horrible pain. Finally much later in the day, almost night, they called in a doctor from another city so I had to wait for him to get there. He walked over to me and checked me and snapped at the nurses, "Get her prepped for surgery right now. Her cervix is closing and the baby is in distress. You let her lay here all day like this"? He was barking out orders like a drill sergeant. I was so thankful that finally a doctor was there who knew what he was doing and listened to me.

So I was given an epidural and taken to the delivery room. At first I was having dry heaves. The doctor was trying to help me relax. He asked me who my favorite news commentator was and I said Walter Cronkite.  :D I guess I was a little light headed. He asked, "Have you ever been to Savannah"? I said, "No". He said, "You should visit there someday. You might like it". I asked, "Is that where you're from"? He smiled and said, "Yes". He walked over to a table and picked up some papers. He said, "I see you've signed papers to have your tubes tied. You're still young. Are you sure you want to do that"? I was in my mid to late twenties. I said, "Yes, I'm sure". He said, "what if you remarry and your husband wants children"? I said, "I won't be getting remarried". He said, "How do you know"? I said, "I just know" and I smiled. And I never remarried even after my husband passed.
So anyway, soon I was holding my baby, my second son. I told him when he was a teenager, "you were hardheaded even before you were born. You had to be forced out. "  :D I remember that doctor's name. He was such a good doctor. The kind of doctor that is few and far between.

I can understand all too well. I've had many bad experiences with doctors and hospital staff. My first mammogram resulted in injury and I had to have surgery. I also had an overdose of radiation by a CT scan. Nobody ever believed me but that did happen and I suffered a lot from it. I believe it was done on purpose. But that's a different story....that I won't go into.

Unfortunately the one issue I had with Dr. not listening was confirmed by another Dr. to be the cause of some of my chronic issues...I mean, when I say things are getting worse on the meds and the ER confirms it, you might want to listen but what do I know, I'm not a Dr. lol right?  I mean heck, I'm even too ignorant to know my own symptoms....okay, I just stepped over the line into anger over some of it, so time to back away and find something amazing in today to be thankful for.

oh don't feel that way, it's just constant pain and severely restricted life due to Dr. who don't listen sometimes wear on me...I'm okay again, just needed to pull away long enough to refocus on how God is using it, not how wrong it was.

It wasn't anything you said. I was going to go into further detail about the radiation overdose but then decided not to so I deleted the post and started over.

So I went to my doctor appointment today. It seems that my son may have been mistaken about who the woman was and why she was there. She was an older woman and she said that she was training to be a nurse practitioner and I have no reason to doubt her word on that. I asked her a few questions. She did speak and act like a doctor so maybe that's why my son thought that she was more than a student or someone in training. But I didn't feel comfortable with her in the room. She was standing in front of me near the wall and she was looking at me and that was a small room. At one point, I told her that my doctor was the best doctor I've ever had and that I had had some bad experiences with doctors in the past. She asked, what about nurse practitioners? I hesitated to answer and then said, well, ….a nurse practitioner misdiagnosed me. I was being honest. I'm sure she wanted an honest answer. So hopefully she will learn something from what I said.

My doctor was asking a lot of questions regarding sheltering in place and if I had  visitors and whether I had been visiting family or friends. He asked how I was getting groceries. Was I going out to a grocery store. I felt like I was being interrogated. That made me uncomfortable and with the woman in the room looking at me, even more so. But I guess he was following guidelines. He's never questioned me like that before. Those were personal questions about my private life. That's the way I felt about that. One of the last things he said was that at some point maybe they will come up with a vaccine that works and I cringed.

I'm surprised that you went to your appointment and didn't insist that the other person wasn't present.
It looks like you handled it well though...

Maybe you should have asked your quack doctor on how a vaccine could ever work on a virus that mutates every year. If a virus mutates every year, the best they could (hypothetically) make is a vaccine that protects against last year's virus strain.
Or maybe you could find a doctor that brings next year's vaccine that protects against this year's virus?!?

I have Medicare now but I pay about $140 a month for it. Folks, we need Potassium in all three forms and it's hard to fin in supplements. I have an excellent video that goes into great detail about potassium and other medical information that predates the Rockefeller takeover of World Medicine and education. I will post the video in this thread later.

I wanted to know exactly who the person was and why they were there and be able to ask them questions. Nobody at my doctor's office told me anything ahead of time. I wouldn't have known that she would be there at all if my son hadn't mentioned it. So I was somewhat prepared for her. I wasn't prepared to be interrogated by my doctor though. It was like seeing a side of him that I've never seen before. I know he doesn't want to lose his practice and has to follow guidelines and he is following it to the letter. I tried to be respectful but I stood my ground.

I wouldn't have been able to discuss a vaccine without getting upset. So I didn't comment on that.

If it comes down to being forced to take the vaccine then I will really cause a scene. No doubt about that.

I'm gonna say this just to have a voice, don't feel like you need to say anything, it's just stirred emotions I haven't had time to process yet.

I just got off the phone with Dr. she wants me to do all this "preventative" stuff (light pressure, no hard sell, otherwise this would be a very different post) but no one, including her, gets that I don't care anymore.  I was hurt so badly by the previous Dr. not listening that I basically have no life...why would I care to postpone that?  Just saying, I don't have a life anyway because Dr.s wanted to play god rather than listen why go through that again and drag out the no life as it is....

Okay rant over, moving on.

thanks, I was pretty much on top of it and got another call from the Dr. to come to the parking lot to do BP even though I have a cuff and have been watching it...just frustrated is all.  Had an opportunity yesterday to council with someone who just got medical news that is troubling her and got to talk with her about how to trust the Lord through it all...good visit with her which always helps.  (clarification...it always helps when God uses me to  comfort and help another)

Thanks for promoting my threads by the way (I already thought that you did something like this, especially after your post in “my” Rwanda/Congo thread).

At one time, I regularly made replies with links to "my" threads on Lawfulpath on Aangirfan (aanirfan.blogspot.com). This made the views rise very high.
I stopped this, when one of my replies was deleted...

Our internet is rigged amongst others by search engines.
There are simply more members on Ronpaulforums.com that guarantee that despite blocking by search engines they still get read.
Starting a thread on RPF on Google and Yahoo blocking my posts certainly got me noticed.

I’m no fan of Ron Paul (I despise just about all “famous” politicians), but there are some genuinely good members posting there.

Here’s an example of an important thread on Ronpaulforums.com. It isn’t a complete success as I tried to trace back the origins of our society (including religion) to Scythia more than 6000 years ago (which was too difficult to pull off).
It has gotten 46,440 views (and counting): http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?511234-Dragon-court

Quote from: patrick jane
I can't tweet this one anymore

You can understand that I'm curious if it are only "my" threads...
I have never been on Twitter or Facebook, so don't got much insight on that.

I had already found out that "strange" things happen...
Google, Yahoo and their ilk "block" my threads/post in the search results. I actually see this as a "good" sign, as I think that they wouldn't if my investigations aren't good.

I collect information that I then copy to Word documents that I have to save somewhere. I used to save these in my personal Hotmail mail account. After my documents were deleted or changed repeatedly, I started saving documents on a USB-stick that I carry with me.

This isn't foolproof either, when I use Word "newer" than Word 2007 (I go to an internet cafe to search the internet), often spaces in the document get deleted, which can make them unreadable.

Another problem is that sometimes an empty file with the same name is copied to my USB instead of the original file.
The following PDF describes CIA’s Pandemic tool that could have been used against me…
See some excerpts.
Quote
(S//NF) Pandemic is a tool which is run as kernel shellcode to install a file system filter driver. The filter will 'replace' a target file with the given payload file when a remote user accesses the file via SMB (read-only, not write). Pandemic will not 'replace' the target file when the target file is opened on the machine Pandemic is running on. The goal of Pandemic is to be installed on a machine where remote users use SMB to download/execute PE files.
(…)
If the remote user goes to copy the targeted PE on the file server to their local machine, and the remote user has a file with the same name as the targeted PE in the destination folder, Windows will ask the user if they wish to replace the file or cancel the copy operation. The issue is the Windows alert box will report that the new file's size being the size of the targeted PE, not the replacement PE.
◦ For example: The targeted file is Pexplorer.exe, size 4.5 MB. The replacement file is NOTEPAD.exe, size 67 KB. If the remote user copies down pexplorer.exe to a local folder with that same file name, Windows will ask the user if they wish to overwrite/cancel the copy. When it does this, it will say that the size of the remote copy is 4.5 MB. However, after the operation is complete, the user will have only downloaded the replacement PE file of size 500 KB.

If user account A on the remote machine is targeted, but user account B on the same machine is not, then the following issue can occur:
◦ User A is running WinHex.exe, the targeted application, directly from the Pandemic File Server (PFS). User A really is running a Trojan'd copy of WinHex.exe. User B logs into the PFS and also directly executes WinHex.exe. User B, while not targeted, will still receive the Trojan'd WinHex.exe. This is because the machine that User A and User B share is caching the file.

I bought some hockey skates online for $89. Bauer - a good brand but I should have gone to a store for a proper fit but more expensive. These will work just fine I hope as I'm not an avid skater. Hockey skates offer much more support for the ankles and feet. I used to skate in 7th and 8th grade with classmates and I remember loving the feeling and it is great exercise. I hope to go to the rink once a week and quit smoking. starting when they open this Fall.

The last time I was skating, as we were leaving, I fell and injured my wrist.  My mother asked if I could bend it, which I could do with much effort.  Since I could bend it, she determined it would be fine.  By the time we got home, I couldn't use it at all...they put a homemade splint on it and a homemade sling and sent me to school the next day.  I went to school that way for a couple of weeks but no one cared to find out why I couldn't use it.  To this day, I often had problems with it...haven't been skating since and wouldn't go again if I could....be safe out there PJ, I don't want to hear about you hurting yourself with your skates...lol ;)

So true, I didn't think of that actually. I probably will fall because it's been so long. I better take baby steps.

I don't mean to criticise you, but it does sound a bit like postponing starting to do some excercise. You bought skates that give you an excuse to wait until fall...
Of course there could be some physical reason (injury) that prevents you from starting right now.

I've been doing some heavy training since May 2019, including fitness, sprinting and jumping.
Most people get lighter when doing sports, I am heavy - more than 100 kg at only 1.85 m in height (6 ft 2).
I used to skate when I was young (hockey skates), which is very common in the Netherlands. It has been years since we could skate on the canals and lakes (the winter of 2013 was a cold one).
I have had injuries, but never from skating.

Here's what you could do to start right now (obviously it's a good thing to do some excercise that you actuall enjoy) - inline skates (skeelers)...
Besides that you can start right now, you can do it when it's warm and it's easier.
I don't think you need protective gear for ice skating (hardly anybody in the Netherlands does), but for inline skating you do (at the very least for your hand and wrist).

Thanks for the tips. Maybe I am putting it off as I thought of this last fall but didn't have the money. I ride my bike around the neighborhood and take walks but not as much as I could or should. I'm 180 pounds and 5' 11" but my breathing is bad - I have COPD and emphysema.

I will wear some leather gloves and jeans with long underwear for cushion, lol.

Did you ever what to say something to someone but there was no one there to talk to...even if you find someone, they couldn't understand and even if they could come close, it would take forever to catch them up on all the things feeding into what you want to say so that it made any sense.  Not only that, but there is nothing that can be done, you just want to say, "I'm hurting, I'm tired, but it is still well with my soul" and have someone have a clue as to why you feel that way right now and share in your tears with understanding?

I absolutely do and I think we all feel that way at times. It is frustrating and you know inside that they won't really get it and understand. It's like only best friends and people that are really close can do this. Even then, many times your closest friends and family can't grasp the whole thing. I have trouble expressing, or putting my thought and what I have learned and know, into words. The right words. It really takes two people that want to understand each other and to "take the necessary time" required.

Angus Beef Burger Recipe | With Mushroom and Onion Reduction


16 minutes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSeOexV8K5k


Today I grilled some Angus Beef burgers with a onion and mushroom reduction. These Angus Beef Burgers are perfect for those who like Angus Beef and mushroom and onions. The Angus beef Burger had a nice Smokey flavor from the Kingsford Hickory Charcoal and a hickory wood chunk. The reduction made it all come together with the edition of the Stella Rosa Black Reserve Wine.

Angus Beef Burger Ingredients:
Angus Beef Burgers
All Purpose Seasoning (Salt, Pepper, Garlic)
Sweet Yellow Onion
White/Sliced Mushrooms
Butter
Worcestershire Sauce
Wine (your choice)
Hamburger Bun

Directions:
Prepare Angus Beef Burgers with SPG on both sides. Prepare grill preheat to 350 degrees. Cook Angus Beef Burgers 4-5 min each side. Place Swiss Cheese on when burgers are near done.

Reduction: Place 2 tbs butter in a pan over medium heat until melted. Place mushrooms in pan and sautee until soft. Place onions in pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper, worcestershire sauce and stir. Then add in wine. Reduce for approximately 10 min. Remove from heat when all liquid has evaporated.

I had an interesting discussion with my doctor this past Tuesday. We were talking about the protesters and the rioting taking place across the country and about cancel culture. He said, do you think they will cancel Christmas? I said probably. We talked about how the protesters are now burning bibles. We both agreed that we're seeing a  satanic spirit with the division, lawlessness, chaos, destruction and death.

I agree tj and it will get worse I believe. There will be massive shortages coming on meat and dairy and fruits and vegetables. 2021 could be horrible here and especially if they steal the election by closing the polls and cheating on the mail in ballots. We can thank the democrats for no second stimulus check too. I was counting on that.

Second stimulus check update: why is there no agreement?
Amid an impasse in negotiations over a coronavirus relief package in the US, Americans' wait for a second stimulus check continues





Americans' wait for a second stimulus check goes on, amid an impasse in negotiations between White House leaders and Democratic congressional chiefs over the United States' next coronavirus relief bill.

No stimulus package expected before September

After two weeks of talks, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows proved unable to agree an outline stimulus package with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) by their self-imposed deadline of 7 August.

Lawmakers in both the House and the Senate have now gone on recess and, as things stand, a bill does not look like being pushed through before September, despite initial suggestions that discussions could be revived earlier this week.

There are a number of issues behind the failure of the negotiations, but stimulus checks don’t appear to be one of them. Republicans and Democrats agree that another direct payment is needed, and have both proposed a second round of checks that would see those who earn under $99,000 a year given up to $1,200.

Why hasn't a stimulus package been agreed?
Among the notable stumbling blocks that led talks to stall were enhanced unemployment insurance - Democrats wanted to extend a $600 weekly benefits boost until January, but Republicans proposed significantly lowering this figure - and financial aid for state and local governments. Pelosi and Schumer sought $915bn, a sum Mnuchin and Meadows were not prepared to countenance.

USPS emerges as point of huge conflict
Another major source of conflict that has emerged from the negotiations is the United States Postal Service. Ahead of a presidential election in which an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots are expected as Americans avoid in-person voting due to the pandemic, Democrats sought $25bn in funding to help the USPS deal with this likely inundation of postal votes.

However, Trump, who has repeatedly stated his opposition to mail-in votes, claiming they lead to increased electoral fraud, this week indicated to Fox Business that he was against agreeing a package that would facilitate nationwide postal voting. "If we don't make the deal, that means they can't have the money, that means they can't have universal mail-in voting,” he said.

Trump accused of "all-out assault" on the USPS
Trump later sought to soften his remarks, saying he would not veto a relief bill if it included support for the USPS - but Democrats nevertheless accuse the president of trying to disrupt November’s vote by financially strangling the postal service.

Indeed, the new postmaster general, Trump donor Louis DeJoy, has overseen a raft of cut-backs to the USPS since his June appointment, leaving its ability to cope with the election rush in doubt. For example, NPR notes that DeJoy has moved to reduce postal workers' hours, take high-speed mail-sorting machines out of service and remove mailboxes.

In a statement on Friday, Pelosi and Schumer said: "The president, his cronies and Republicans in Congress continue to wage their all-out assault on the Postal Service and its role in ensuring the integrity of the 2020 election."

Pelosi weighs up recalling House over USPS
In the face of the growing USPS crisis, Politico says that Pelosi is considering recalling the House from its summer recess to tackle the issue, in a report confirmed to Reuters by a Democratic congressional aide.

Democratic Representative Carolyn Maloney (NY-12) this week introduced legislation seeking to preserve the USPS' January 2020 level of service until after the Covid-19 pandemic is over, and Reuters has been told by the congressional aide that the House could vote on such a measure.

According to Politico’s report, some Democrats have also suggested an early return from recess could be used to deal with other issues such as unemployment benefits, but have been told that addressing the USPS crisis must be the immediate priority.

I didn't respond yesterday because Sun. is my "sabbath" away from the computer...just something God has laid on my heart.

I talk to people all the time about how others have hurt them.  Sometimes, like it or not, there are people who you just will never be able to get along with.  For those of us who want to Love like Christ Loved that is a hard pill to swallow so to speak.  Sometimes, LOVE is just saying we are not going to talk anymore.  Praying for you.

This weekend we planted about 10 basil starts and propagated another 15 or so...started about 8 lemon trees from cuttings and some other odds and ends...Brian built a planter box railing (well, about 1/7 th of the way done so I will be able to work in those which feels good since I am so limited in what I can do.

Good news -

I have five YT channels but really only three I focus on, the other two are for videos I like and one those is my mom's channel, neither of those two will be monetized.

My channel named patrick jane forums was monetized this morning. I will discuss theology more and politics and conspiracy and try to build an audience. I can only handle one or two channels so I'm giving the third main channel, named Theology Forums to Chaplain Mark.

I already have Theology Forums up to nearly 800 subscribers, (1K is needed) and I have accumulated about 250 watch hours (4,000 is required) so it will take time but I'm on the way.

I never heard of such stuff in my life about God punishing others just for being friends with others I am so sick of the person telling me this ... it's just telling who I can't and can be friends with ...

Hope things get better for you all in here be safe and well stay healthy most of all you all have fun and stay positive and smile ☺ be happy.....
I agree La Shanda, in fact, we are to Love even our enemies, how can we Love if we isolate ourselves from them

My thought of the day is that my hands smell like Basil...just repotted 10 plants and got another 10ish in pots to propagate plus planted spanish lavender seeds, hoping they survive, our son spilled them.
I Just ignored the person and just went my way just now the person says to me myself is the one that made the mistake now as God being as there witness and the person said they didn't do nothing wrong ... what gets me how can someone make a mistake if they don't want to talk to the person .. I know I can't make everyone happy tired of negative remarks from the person so I haven't spoke to the person in three days going on...one thing on this person the person don't know how to take the word no that is for sure right now I am just staying strong doing better working my content more and I Don't have to hear the stuff from that person ... but did read the messages but I Didn't bother to reply at all just moved on ...and that should make others happen cause I know I did the right thing ... glad I have good friend and friends on here as well...to help me as I go ...much thanks to you too as well ....


wow you work so hard So sorry what you had to go  through Lori I do hope they survive as well going to have faith for all this yep I agree even our enemies as well we all should love each other and be friendly ...thanks for your time as well ...wishing you a good day as well be safe and well and stay healthy you and everyone else...
I didn't respond yesterday because Sun. is my "sabbath" away from the computer...just something God has laid on my heart.

I talk to people all the time about how others have hurt them.  Sometimes, like it or not, there are people who you just will never be able to get along with.  For those of us who want to Love like Christ Loved that is a hard pill to swallow so to speak.  Sometimes, LOVE is just saying we are not going to talk anymore.  Praying for you.

This weekend we planted about 10 basil starts and propagated another 15 or so...started about 8 lemon trees from cuttings and some other odds and ends...Brian built a planter box railing (well, about 1/7 th of the way done so I will be able to work in those which feels good since I am so limited in what I can do. 





I have a lot on my mind lately, but I remain positive and I know the holy spirit guides me.
Hope things get better for you as well wishing you all the best on you and your channels your doing good you know that don't you takes time and patience that is all we need is that we can do anything we put our minds into and we can do it alone and together we all can make a difference on what we do... I know I am trying my best you stay safe and well much Love to you too as well hang in there you too smile and keep having a good day as well ... :)


I do have a lot on my mind but I am going to do my best to stay and think positive as well... have a blessing day you all be safe and well and stay healthy....

One of those days when I am tired...so tired to fight to keep going but not really ready to give up...not sure how else to word it.  Looking forward to going "HOME" (heaven) but know that if it was time I wouldn't still be here but just tired of this world and homesick I guess.

Good news -

I have five YT channels but really only three I focus on, the other two are for videos I like and one those is my mom's channel, neither of those two will be monetized.

My channel named patrick jane forums was monetized this morning. I will discuss theology more and politics and conspiracy and try to build an audience. I can only handle one or two channels so I'm giving the third main channel, named Theology Forums to Chaplain Mark.

I already have Theology Forums up to nearly 800 subscribers, (1K is needed) and I have accumulated about 250 watch hours (4,000 is required) so it will take time but I'm on the way.
Theology Forums YT channel is up over 600 hours of watch time already.

you never get over those who you love that are gone from this world.  We have an apple tree in the front yard, given to us when our son died, and every day it reminds me to not grieve like the world, but it never says don't grieve, even Christ grieved...May you have peace and comfort in your memories and in your hope in Christ.

Second stimulus check update: why is there no agreement?
Amid an impasse in negotiations over a coronavirus relief package in the US, Americans' wait for a second stimulus check continues

Americans' wait for a second stimulus check goes on, amid an impasse in negotiations between White House leaders and Democratic congressional chiefs over the United States' next coronavirus relief bill.

No stimulus package expected before September

After two weeks of talks, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows proved unable to agree an outline stimulus package with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) by their self-imposed deadline of 7 August.

Lawmakers in both the House and the Senate have now gone on recess and, as things stand, a bill does not look like being pushed through before September, despite initial suggestions that discussions could be revived earlier this week.

There are a number of issues behind the failure of the negotiations, but stimulus checks don’t appear to be one of them. Republicans and Democrats agree that another direct payment is needed, and have both proposed a second round of checks that would see those who earn under $99,000 a year given up to $1,200.

Why hasn't a stimulus package been agreed?
Among the notable stumbling blocks that led talks to stall were enhanced unemployment insurance - Democrats wanted to extend a $600 weekly benefits boost until January, but Republicans proposed significantly lowering this figure - and financial aid for state and local governments. Pelosi and Schumer sought $915bn, a sum Mnuchin and Meadows were not prepared to countenance.

USPS emerges as point of huge conflict
Another major source of conflict that has emerged from the negotiations is the United States Postal Service. Ahead of a presidential election in which an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots are expected as Americans avoid in-person voting due to the pandemic, Democrats sought $25bn in funding to help the USPS deal with this likely inundation of postal votes.

However, Trump, who has repeatedly stated his opposition to mail-in votes, claiming they lead to increased electoral fraud, this week indicated to Fox Business that he was against agreeing a package that would facilitate nationwide postal voting. "If we don't make the deal, that means they can't have the money, that means they can't have universal mail-in voting,” he said.

Trump accused of "all-out assault" on the USPS
Trump later sought to soften his remarks, saying he would not veto a relief bill if it included support for the USPS - but Democrats nevertheless accuse the president of trying to disrupt November’s vote by financially strangling the postal service.

Indeed, the new postmaster general, Trump donor Louis DeJoy, has overseen a raft of cut-backs to the USPS since his June appointment, leaving its ability to cope with the election rush in doubt. For example, NPR notes that DeJoy has moved to reduce postal workers' hours, take high-speed mail-sorting machines out of service and remove mailboxes.

In a statement on Friday, Pelosi and Schumer said: "The president, his cronies and Republicans in Congress continue to wage their all-out assault on the Postal Service and its role in ensuring the integrity of the 2020 election."

Pelosi weighs up recalling House over USPS
In the face of the growing USPS crisis, Politico says that Pelosi is considering recalling the House from its summer recess to tackle the issue, in a report confirmed to Reuters by a Democratic congressional aide.

Democratic Representative Carolyn Maloney (NY-12) this week introduced legislation seeking to preserve the USPS' January 2020 level of service until after the Covid-19 pandemic is over, and Reuters has been told by the congressional aide that the House could vote on such a measure.

According to Politico’s report, some Democrats have also suggested an early return from recess could be used to deal with other issues such as unemployment benefits, but have been told that addressing the USPS crisis must be the immediate priority.

I heard that the Democrats are asking not only for coronavirus relief but for additional funding or payment to repair damages made in cities during the riots and I think Trump has a problem with paying for those damages because the riots were allowed to happen by mayors and governors who now expect Trump to approve funding to cover the cost of the damages from riots and it's a very large amount so they're trying to come to an agreement on that but I think that's what is holding it up.

A Thanksgiving Like None Other




The world may look different, but there is still plenty to be grateful for.


Thanksgiving looks a bit different this year. Whether you’re celebrating alone, with a few close family members, over Zoom, or maybe a combination of all three, I’m sure things don’t feel quite the same. I grieve this loss alongside you, and with millions of others. You are not alone.

In my family, and I assume in many of yours, at some point during usual Thanksgiving celebrations, every family member or friend present is invited to share what they are most grateful for on this special holiday. As LifeWay Research recently reported, Americans are most thankful to and for their family, even in this unique year. Of course, I want to assure readers that I too am thankful to and for my family. In this year, I am adding a new item to that standard list. And, this new addition begins with a descent.

What do I mean by descent? Well, if you’re like me, your version of descent might be a lost job, a lost relationship, or a lost graduation. It may be a lost loved one, or the death of a dream, like a small business. This year, we all had plenty to lose. Descent might not just mean the loss itself—it may be sleepless nights, or anxiety-ridden days. It might be a nose-dive straight into self-pity. Descent might be your mental state as a result of these losses.

I am not mature enough in my faith to say plainly and honestly that I am thankful for these losses, or the many sleepless nights that followed. I would love to report that I was a perfect imitation of Job this year, and that I faithfully turned to God after each loss, as Job does, saying:

Quote
Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised (Job 1:20-21).

To be completely honest, I did nothing of the sort, though that is a dream I hope to someday realize. As I’ve been preparing my heart for Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season, I’m starting to see things in a new light.

I firmly believe that this could be the year that changes everything for you, and for me. And for that opportunity, I am determined to be grateful. In my everyday life as it was, back in The Before Times when I could go to the grocery store without a second thought or visit a friend without a mask, it wasn’t hard to tap into spirituality. When I am being blessed abundantly and obviously, praise simply pours out of me. However, when I am confused, isolated, and feeling lost in the world, I have to flex spiritual muscles that I don’t usually like to think about. This is part of what theologian Ron Rolheiser calls the “Spirituality of Descent.” It is the part of our faith that allows us to reckon with the complexity, the losses, and the uncomfortable reality of a world that eagerly awaits the return of Jesus.

In a world of social distancing, unprecedented political division, and a rich harvest to be grateful for. 2020 has forced us to see our failures, as individuals, as communities, and as a society in all kinds of ways. I’ve realized just how easy it is to get wrapped up in what’s going on in my own life, so much that I forget what is happening in the lives of those around me. As a society, this year has forced us to address the racial issues in our country. I would say both of these examples are incredibly good things that have come out of some very, very dark places. As I’ve continued to cling onto God during this present darkness, I’ve been sowing qualities of obedience, patience, empathy, and more. I eagerly await the day of harvest.

If we don’t grapple with the darkness in ourselves, and in the world around us, how can we ever expect to grow? Spiritual maturity doesn’t just happen. It is carefully forged through trials and faithful obedience. In 2020, we’ve all experienced the challenges of a lifetime. In a time where it feels like our opportunities are limited, we do have the opportunity to deepen our relationship with God as we reckon with the complexities of the world around us, and ourselves. As followers of Christ, we need not be afraid of the dark, because we already follow the Light of the World.

I look forward to one day sharing the story of the year that changed everything for me—the year 2020. In a year where so many doors have been closed, I urge you to accept an open invitation into a deeper relationship with Christ.

This year, just as in every other year, God remains faithful. Even more, God is present in our disappointment and failure. He does not shy away from our fear or doubt, but his perfect love does cast out fear. In dry and barren land, he is living water. How are we supposed to believe this testimony if we don’t experience the desert? Let us join in the Communion of the Saints in our trials and on this Thanksgiving as we express our gratefulness to God. We are not the first generation to go through hardships, whether that be political division or a global pandemic. God was faithful then, and he is faithful now. The Pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving were likely a subset of Puritanism and possibly prayed a prayer like this one from The Valley of Vision, which I encourage you to pray as well:

O My God, Thou fairest, greatest, first of all objects, my heart admires, adores, loves thee, for my little vessel is as full as it can be, and I would pour out all that fullness before thee in ceaseless flow.

When I think upon and converse with thee ten thousand delightful thoughts spring up, ten thousand sources of pleasure are unsealed, ten thousand refreshing joys spread over my heart, crowding into every moment of happiness.

I bless thee for the soul thou hast created, for adorning it, for sanctifying it, though it is fixed in barren soil;

for the body thou hast given me, for preserving its strength and vigour, for providing senses to enjoy delights, for the ease and freedom of my limbs, for hands, eyes, ears that do thy bidding;

for thy royal bounty providing my daily support, for a full table and overflowing cup, for appetite, taste, sweetness, for social joys of relatives and friends, for ability to serve others, for a heart that feels sorrows and necessities, for a mind to care for my fellow-men, for opportunities of spreading happiness around, for loved ones in the joys of heaven, for my own expectation of seeing thee clearly.

I love thee above the powers of language to express, for what thou art to thy creatures. Increase my love, O my God, through time and eternity.

The Hebrew calendar was a thirty day year and every so often (in years) they would add so many days... really upsets the apple cart if you ask me.

I had a bad experience yesterday. I had taken a Lyft to go back home after visiting my son. It was cold and I was wearing my long coat. So the Lyft arrives and the first thing I notice is that the windows were down maybe four or five inches before I even got into the car.. I thought that was strange because it was cold. It was a young female driver. So I get in the car and try to be friendly but she was acting unfriendly. There was just that negative vibe I was getting from her but I continued to try to be friendly. We arrive at my home and I say thank you and stay safe. I got out of the car and before I could close the door, she turned around holding a can of Lysol and sprayed it on the exact place where I had been sitting. I closed the door and walked away saying out loud, how rude. I've never had a Lyft driver act that way. I think I know why she was acting that way. I've encountered some other people who acted the same way not with a can of Lysol but not being friendly and giving me dirty looks. The important thing is to keep a cool head and not react or make a scene. I'm an easy going person but not everybody is like that and a situation can get out of hand and even turn violent if someone says or does something to offend another person. I've seen it happen over the smallest of things. I try to avoid confrontations even if I am offended by what someone says or does. The best thing to do is just walk away. Only in extreme situations where I feel that my life is in danger will I react and I will react to defend myself.

I guess she had issues with me for some reason although she doesn't know me at all. It's not good to judge by appearance and make assumptions.

https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2021/january-web-only/wall-street-gamestop-parable-what-if-we-are-all-1-percent.html








In the GameStop Frenzy, What If We’re All the 1 Percent?





Jesus’ economic justice doesn’t mean beating the rich at their own game.


Everybody loves a David and Goliath story. In recent days, millions of aspiring Davids took on one of society’s least favorite Goliaths: Wall Street.

It all started with a Reddit page called WallStreetBets. Many of the 3 million amateur investors involved in the chat room decided to come together to coordinate the purchase of stocks in a handful of companies. By doing so, they generated a massive increase in the value of those companies’ stock. GameStop’s market value, for instance, went from $2 billion to $24 billion in just a few days. While this created an enormous profit margin for individual investors, it also nearly bankrupted a hedge fund that had bet against GameStop by short selling their shares.

By all accounts, many folks involved celebrated both outcomes. “You stand for everything that I hated during [the financial crisis],” one user wrote in an open letter to the hedge funds. “You are a firm who makes money off of exploiting a company and manipulating markets and media to your advantage.” One evangelical pastor even drew on Jesus’ parable about the rich fool (Luke 12:13–21) who used his profits to build a bigger barn to describe what was happening. “Since 2008, it feels like Wall Street has had an overabundant harvest, financed by public money, and rather than share the billions with the less fortunate, they’ve built bigger and bigger barns for themselves.”

I certainly see what he means, especially when we consider the likely economic realities behind the parable. When the rich man tears down his barns to build bigger ones, he probably isn’t creating an enormous rainy-day savings fund. He’s more likely opening the first-century equivalent of a one-man hedge fund. But focusing on the way the parable puts financial Goliaths in the crosshairs may cause us to miss another group targeted by Jesus’ strange story: us.

While the vast majority of farmers in Jesus’ day would have been engaged in some form of subsistence agriculture, large landowners were increasingly profiting off grain speculation. Those who had enough of an agricultural surplus could afford to keep their grain off the market while prices were low. Then, when grain was scarce and people were hungry, they could sell their surplus at a massive profit. Such speculation wreaked havoc on the local economy while allowing the opportunist to profit both financially and socially from the chaos he helped create.

Against this background, Jesus condemns at least two aspects of the rich man’s greed. Not only does the rich man fail to share from his abundance, but he apparently plans to use the economic power his abundance affords him to gain further riches for himself at the expense of his neighbors.

Jesus’ parable offers a warning to those who made ludicrous profits while creating a crisis that devastated the global economy. It’s hard to imagine that the Jesus who characterized a first-century agro-entrepreneur as a malicious fool would overlook the way bank CEOs claimed multimillion-dollar Wall Street bonuses while Main Street burned. Surely the Jesus who sniffed out the money-loving Pharisees’ hypocrisy (Luke 12:1) would have something to say about modern-day financial market manipulation.

But notice why Jesus tells the parable in the first place. A man from the crowd asks Jesus to help him get a share of his inheritance. While we don’t know anything certain about this man’s economic status, we do know that the vast majority of Jesus’ audience faced brutal poverty, the likes of which hardly any American can imagine. Carol Wilson argues that a quarter of the population of Palestine in Jesus’ day was so destitute they were “slowly starving to death,” while another 30 percent hovered “precariously near the edge of subsistence.” Only an elite 3 percent of the population was secure against economic poverty. It’s likely, then, that the man asking for help with his inheritance faced serious economic hardship. It’s certain that most of Jesus’ audience did.

It is this primarily poor audience that Jesus warns about the need to “guard themselves against all kinds of greed.” Jesus’ anti-greed parable wasn’t only a warning for the super-rich. It was also a warning about the kind of financial insatiability that Jesus believed even the poor could get caught up in.

As best I can tell, the WallStreetBets folks got involved because they wanted to make money quickly. One of the most popular trading platforms, Robinhood, advertised their services as allowing “people like us” to trade “just like the big guys.” So while these investors’ actions put the squeeze on a hedge fund, their market manipulation also sought to create quick, substantial profits for themselves.

I’m not sure that’s all necessarily sinful. But when we wield the parable of the rich fool as a weapon against the super-rich, we risk missing the way Jesus offered it as a challenge to folks like us.

The danger here is much bigger than this week’s stock market story. The danger is that in the face of a deeply dysfunctional economic system and corruption by the super-rich, middle-class American Christians forget that in global and historical terms, we are the 1 percent.

Every single investor in GameStop lives a life of unimaginable comfort and wealth compared to the vast majority of those Jesus warned about their greed. Most of us are richer than the fictitious rich fool in terms of life expectancy, health, and luxury items. Economically speaking, compared to the typical first-century Jesus-follower, we are kings and pharaohs living lives of unimaginable security and ease. Yet middle-class Christians consistently read Jesus’ warning about the wealthy as applying to somebody else. We, the richest people who have ever lived, read ourselves in the role of the peasant and find somebody further up the economic ladder to play the part of the fool.

We all do this. We talk about being “poor college students” while attending schools that cost enough to feed entire villages in the global south. Pastors and professors like me regularly remind people “we sure don’t do it for the money,” even though the money gives us some of the highest standards of living experienced in human history.

As that Robinhood advertisement makes clear, we often criticize the large-scale behavior of the “big guys” while imitating it in our own economic practices. For years, Christian economist Bob Goudzwaard has warned about the ways that financial markets have gotten out of hand, with devastating effects on the “real economy” at home and abroad. While I wouldn’t claim that all hedge funds are intrinsically immoral, aspects of our contemporary financial markets, like aspects of the grain market in Jesus’ day, demand prophetic confrontation.

But we shouldn’t confuse fighting for a better seat at the blackjack table with confronting an economy addicted to gambling. That’s especially true when either gambler’s loss can wreak havoc on the lives of others. After all, it’s not just Wall Street financiers who invest in hedge funds; pension funds, like the ones that fund the retirements of school teachers and firefighters, do too. We ignore the ways we are the rich fools at our own moral and spiritual peril and at our neighbors’ expense.

Jesus doesn’t tell his flock to beat the rich fool at his own game. He invites them to live an economic life free from greed or fear, storing up treasure in heaven by giving generously to the poor (Luke 12:33).

Such kingdom investments include charity to the destitute, but, as Brian Fikkert, Robby Holt, and I argue in Practicing the King’s Economy, it also includes orienting the whole of one’s economic life toward love of God and love of neighbor.

If we want to invest in Jesus’ kingdom, I suspect there are better ways than squeezing hedge funds. We could invest in black and brown business with the help of lending platforms like WeFunder and Kiva. We could invest our money and social connections in organizations that help the economically poor build wealth through education or homeownership. We could creatively protest some of the dysfunctions of our economic system while remembering that Jesus’ parable is a warning for us as much as it is for financial professionals.

Blade
The main reason is that my oldest son got a puppy about a year ago and I became very attached to him like he was my own dog. Then my oldest son had to move and the place he's moving to doesn't allow pets. So he had to give up the dog. Although a family member agreed to take him, I was crushed. I couldn't take him because I'm only allowed one pet and I have a cat. I just worry about the effect this is going to have on Charlie, the dog. The separation anxiety, the feeling of abandonment etc. The problems adjusting to a new home. And will he be properly taken care of. Will he be safe. It's just heartbreaking.

Satanism being pushed to the youth to normalize it. This is the time in which we live.

Lil Nas X's 'Satan Shoe' — made with one drop of human blood — sold out in under a minute, bringing in nearly $700,000

Singer Lil Nas X's "Satan Shoe" — made with one drop of human blood — sold out in under a minute, the company told Insider.

Brooklyn-based startup MSCHF released the shoe on March 26, and said each one individually numbered 666 pairs would contain 60cc ink and one drop of human blood. The company released the 666 shoes for $1,018 each, as a nod to the Bible verse Luke 10:18: "So He told them, 'I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.'"

MSCHF co-founder Daniel Greenberg confirmed the shoe sold out in under a minute, but did not reveal whether the release was the company's most profitable. At the listed price, the release adds up to nearly $700,000 in sales.

The shoe knocks off the Nike Air Max 97, but Nike had no involvement in the shoe.

"We do not have a relationship with Little Nas X or MSCHF. Nike did not design or release these shoes, and we do not endorse them," Nike said in a statement to The New York Times.

Greenberg told the Times six team members gave up blood to go into the collaboration with Lil Nas X.

Insider's Paige Leskin previously reported MSCHF has gone viral for selling unusual items like a $10 toaster bath bomb, an app for making stock investments based on astrological signs, and Nike sneakers filled with Holy Water.

MSCHF, co-founded in 2016 by former BuzzFeed employee Gabriel Whaley, received $11.5 million in funding as of January 2020. The company's Push Party app said it has a valuation of $200 million following an undisclosed deal with the venture capital firm Founders Fund.

Nike sues over Lil Nas X 'Satan Shoes' with human blood in soles

Nike filed a federal trademark infringement lawsuit Monday against the company that released a controversial customized version of its sneakers in collaboration with the rapper Lil Nas X.

The release of the Satan Shoes coincides with Lil Nas X's latest single, "Montero (Call Me By Your Name)," and its accompanying music video. In the video, Lil Nas X is seduced out of what appears to be the Garden of Eden, falls into hell and gives the devil a lap dance.

good for you...I tried to wear a mask and had what was called a near anaphylaxis reaction...my dr. responded, you should wear a mask no matter, but I understand!  Seriously, go ahead and have an anaphylaxis reaction it is better than not wearing a mask...guess who blew off the Dr. advice?  lol

My heart goes out to you. I can't imagine how hard that is for you. So his attitude was that you should wear a mask no matter if it caused anaphylaxis reaction. That's life threatening. That doctor has no business being a doctor. You do what is best for you and you did.

My doctor also said to me amid his tirade and he got loud and argumentative, that I wouldn't be able to attend parties with people who have been vaccinated. I said that's fine, I don't go to parties. As if I'm worrying about not attending parties. That's what he thinks I'm worried about? That was what he thought would persuade me? He asked if I had anxiety about Covid. I said no, that's not what I have anxiety about. I have anxiety about other things which I didn't mention. He wouldn't understand anyway. And I don't respond very well to bully tactics.

Because of Dr.s that didn't listen (yes the pulmonary Dr. confirms this) I can't go anywhere without risking my health...literally.  I haven't been in a story for years because of what they did to me....my husband refuses to go to the Dr. because he watched what they did to me by not listening when I told them things were getting worse....now they have a friend of mine on the same med...all I can do is warn her, pray, and advised her how we kept off of it the last time I was in the hospital.

In the hospital the last time, they wanted to put me back on it, we tried to explain and they ignored what we said, finally I said, "You took an oath to do no harm"...that is all it took, suddenly I didn't need that med again, another would do fine...oh and a procedure they wanted to do was no longer necessary, funny how that works...stay strong!

I heard that doctors are well compensated for prescribing certain drugs to patients by the makers or sellers of those drugs, those companies. I don't know if this is true but I'm inclined to believe it. I heard a story about a six year old girl who was prescribed an antidepressant that caused suicidal tendencies and she hung herself.. I can't remember the name of the drug but it was one by Pfizer who had a fake company take the fall for it when they were sued. Many veterans are prescribed drugs that cause suicidal tendencies. That worsens their already present thoughts about suicide and many of them suffer from PTSD.

It's good that you have such a loving and supportive husband.  :)

I still don't understand why my doctor went off on me that way. It was like he took it personally. He has always listened to me and respected my wishes but for some reason he just lost it when I said that I didn't want to take the Covid shot. That wasn't the first time he has asked me about it. I have explained why I didn't want to take it several times. It wasn't like him to react that way. I wonder if he is under pressure to get his patients vaccinated and if that affects his practice in some way.

Sorry to hear about your friend. Those drugs are especially hard on young children and teenagers.

My heart goes out to you. I can't imagine how hard that is for you. So his attitude was that you should wear a mask no matter if it caused anaphylaxis reaction. That's life threatening. That doctor has no business being a doctor. You do what is best for you and you did.

My doctor also said to me amid his tirade and he got loud and argumentative, that I wouldn't be able to attend parties with people who have been vaccinated. I said that's fine, I don't go to parties. As if I'm worrying about not attending parties. That's what he thinks I'm worried about? That was what he thought would persuade me? He asked if I had anxiety about Covid. I said no, that's not what I have anxiety about. I have anxiety about other things which I didn't mention. He wouldn't understand anyway. And I don't respond very well to bully tactics.
Because of Dr.s that didn't listen (yes the pulmonary Dr. confirms this) I can't go anywhere without risking my health...literally.  I haven't been in a story for years because of what they did to me....my husband refuses to go to the Dr. because he watched what they did to me by not listening when I told them things were getting worse....now they have a friend of mine on the same med...all I can do is warn her, pray, and advised her how we kept off of it the last time I was in the hospital.

In the hospital the last time, they wanted to put me back on it, we tried to explain and they ignored what we said, finally I said, "You took an oath to do no harm"...that is all it took, suddenly I didn't need that med again, another would do fine...oh and a procedure they wanted to do was no longer necessary, funny how that works...stay strong!
Because of the fact that my doctor is becoming more confrontational, I'm considering video doctor visits/face chat or zoom or whatever they use instead of in person. My oldest son has done that so I don't see why I can't do the same thing.

I order a lot of things from Walmart online. Walmart at least here will deliver perishables too through the grocery section

I heard that doctors are well compensated for prescribing certain drugs to patients by the makers or sellers of those drugs, those companies. I don't know if this is true but I'm inclined to believe it. I heard a story about a six year old girl who was prescribed an antidepressant that caused suicidal tendencies and she hung herself.. I can't remember the name of the drug but it was one by Pfizer who had a fake company take the fall for it when they were sued. Many veterans are prescribed drugs that cause suicidal tendencies. That worsens their already present thoughts about suicide and many of them suffer from PTSD.
For a year now, I have been doing "tele" dr. visits, our doc now is insisting on a office visit and my husband said he would go to bat with me over this because of the chemical reactions I have to all the chemicals they use for covid.  The last time I was in the office, my BP spiked because I got chemicals on my hand from touching something that had been wiped down...antihistamine brought it back down...she still freaks and all but accuses me of lying about what caused it.  So I welcome my husband's stepping in and saying, "NO MORE"

We have a young friend they put on antidepressants like the one you were talking about...she drove to a hospital and shot herself in the parking lot and even the dr.s all said it was med induced suicide attempt...it is so out of control!!!!  Anything I can treat at home I will anything I can't will go untreated or will closely be scrutinized by what the drs want to do anymore.
It's good that you have such a loving and supportive husband.  :)

I still don't understand why my doctor went off on me that way. It was like he took it personally. He has always listened to me and respected my wishes but for some reason he just lost it when I said that I didn't want to take the Covid shot. That wasn't the first time he has asked me about it. I have explained why I didn't want to take it several times. It wasn't like him to react that way. I wonder if he is under pressure to get his patients vaccinated and if that affects his practice in some way.

Sorry to hear about your friend. Those drugs are especially hard on young children and teenagers.
I talked to my friend last night, well technically I listened to her vent but she just had a dr. appointment for an ongoing problem, instead of addressing the problem, (could be very serious) the Dr. ignored the problem to push for her to get the vaccination...her refusal left her without help for her problem.  I am giving her the best knowledge I have gained from herbs because something has to happen but I fear it isn't enough so much prayer that God will show us some answers even if it is a different Dr. but I don't know if that will help, from what I gather, all the dr.s are going this direction.

Having been in the Medical field, I guess I just don't understand how the Dr.s and Medical personnel think these days. They keep pushing this vaccine like it is going to keep you from getting it, yet the exact reverse is true. A News story circulated about a nursing home employee had Covid-19 and gave it to all the vaccinated residents.

Are the they so arrogant these days they forget GOD gives them any healing knowledge they might have.


Only the Lord can keep you from getting Covid-19.

stay safe. Lori.  my prayers are with you.

So many doctors are acting like tyrants with this EXPERIMENTAL Covid vaccine trying to force people to take it and trying to scare them. I'm not a lab rat and I'm too old to be scared anymore.

I've been seeing so many people doing the masonic hand sign every time I turn around. I see it in the news pictures, in videos that people make, in movies, in interviews, everywhere. Do these people get points for doing that or are they sending a message to their masonic brothers? I've never seen so many people doing that before as I have this year.

I had a doctor appointment this past Thursday. I was dreading it because I expected him to go off on me again about the vaccine as he's done several times before. But I was surprised that he didn't do that this time. I guess he finally got the message that I won't be bullied into taking an experimental vaccine.

The lastest I have heard on the vaccine is that they are just now testing it on fetus, newborns, women who just had babies, etc.

That men are reporting impotency and low sperm count

and that 1/2 of Dr. in the US won't take it or push it because of the research they have seen.

It would be pretty scary without God...glad you stuck to your guns.  I myself am having health issues again (well recurring flare ups) and I refuse to go to the Dr. again because I am too tired of fighting all the chemicals, lack of listening, etc.

They are such fearmongers. How many people have died from the flu? Why is it that we don't hear much about the flu deaths anymore? When those numbers are added up, it would be more than those who supposedly died of Covid.

I recently heard that Biden has approved people going door to door to try to convince the people who haven't been vaccinated to take the shot. Supposedly to educate people about Covid as if people haven't already heard enough about it.

I don't blame you for not wanting to go to a doctor. You have to do what's best for you. .

Yeah, I head that one too.

I could die from it but I talked to my husband, mother and youngest and they all get why I am making the decision I am and not a one of them is arguing about it.  My son said, I would like you around a while longer, but I get it.  He then talked about how bad medical care really is and how they took my life from me already, why give them more.

Dying on God's time is what you and everyone will do...If it is not Covid-19 then it will be something else. I have no problem with people if they make the decision to get the vaccine. That is their decision but it seems many that take the vaccine want everybody else to take it to increase their chances of not getting it...Then why take it?

Lori...This post is not about you but I believe you will make the right decision for you and your family.

Been a rough day here.  Not physically mind you, but more in the way of frustrations.   I thought I had an appointment but got there to find out I didn't.  Later the Doctor calls and apologizes for accidentally double-booking and making the decision I was in better shape and could wait till Monday but forgetting to call or text to tell me.  The upside is the Lord blessed me with being in decent health to be able to be delayed. 
Then my wife gets a call and they have decided to do a procedure on her right lung to help it get kick-started again after her heart surgery.  She has been emotional as it was, today was even more so.
On top of that, I had a priest friend that is also a published author review my rough draft of my preface and first chapter for help and critique.  Ugh, it was so bad almost made me walk away.

Lastly, I told what I assumed would be a supportive friend that I will be ordained in a reformed catholic church in Sept and immediately was lectured on all the evils of Catholics and how they are not even Christian.  No questions are discussed and they ended it by saying never talk to me again as long as I am a Satan worshiper.   Wow just wow.   Even though my doctorate and my education are squarely from the protestant side of Christianity and my viewpoints while moderate to liberal, I did not think it warranted that reaction.  Even more so since this reformed Catholic Church is more like the Church this person attends.

I guess this is my day to be tested more than normal to see how I react.  So far I think I am dealing but dang.

and I thought I had bad days.  p.s. there will be "overcomers" from each of the seven churches that Jesus wrote a letter to and todays Catholic Church is represented by one of them.

Hope all goes well with your better half and maybe the faulty appointment was on purpose by the man upstairs, giving you time with her.

After our son died (at least 2 of our other kids best friend) each of the kids faced another trauma and it has pushed them each in different directions because of their pain and anger...to make matters worse, we were doing the best we could to help them through it all while we were accused of killing him because we believe in the trinity and other, family members reduced him to his cash worth.  And that is all I will say in public about it.  My kids need lots of prayer but instead, if anything is said on the forums it usually is an accusation of something we did wrong when teaching them about God, and not the traumas that they blamed God for.

Where we lived before this, we didn't have enough sun to grow grass.  But we did grow some pretty cool kids even if they are running right now. :D
Where are they running to?  :D
They are running from God, and sometimes themselves and those that Love them most on this earth.
Oh okay. Well, my kids know they can't run from me.  :D

They can't run from God either. They might try. But they won't get very far.

I've been watching a lot of near death experiences videos. The ones that I find the most interesting and amazing really are the ones that atheists have, or should I say former atheist because after having that experience, they are no longer atheist.

Good morning...we are in Ohio but you were close.  I went to college for a couple of years in IN and I have a sister that lives there now.  It is raining here all week which is not helping us get things ready for winter...argh.  We are trying to get 100 lavender plants in the ground not to mention some roses...a green house built, and some other odd jobs so we are prepared for winter.  We harvested cattails already but soon we will have more harvesting to do and add on to put together so that we can sell stuff with the goal of self supporting missions.  Brian's new schedule allows him to do on line teaching on Mon. so we are getting that started as well.  Too much to do, not enough time to get it done and last night our son (who still lives with us) hurt his shoulder at work....lol more lessons in learning to truth God in all that we do and say.

How about you?

Well, I fell in the house a few weeks ago and cracked a rib so it's very painful to breath, cough, sleep and move but it's getting better slowly. There's nothing they can do except wrap you. I have a gate in my doorway to keep one cat from coming in my room/office, but my cat jumps over it with no trouble, it's good exercise for her, lol. The other cat won't jump over, so at night I was headed to the bathroom and caught my foot on the gate and fell.


Good deal for Brian, and what are cat tails for? Can you eat them? Sounds like y'all stay real busy there so that's good. I hope your son heals quickly.

Ouch! I hurt just thinking about it....our cat is outdoors but the dog is another story.  He is a Bernese Mountain Dog I guess you would say he is a rescue though that is a different story.  Sweet dog but Bernese are fond of pushing on people to get attention.  The problem with Bear is that he doesn't think anything about pushing on people but he wouldn't push open a darn door if the house was burning down around him, lol he would just sit there and cry till you opened the door and waited for him to go through it....

These cattail we are going to use in arrangements for fall and sell to florists for the same.  You can eat them.  They say that if you find cattails you will find everything you need to survive.  They can be used as batting for warmth, we plan on making temporary (till lumber prices come down) roof for the porch.  They can be used as medicine and the slimy stuff (when you strip outer leaves off) is good for cuts, etc.  WE have a swamp in the back of the house and Brain estimates there is about  1/4 acre of cat tails.  We started out looking into growing and selling cut flowers but are slowly moving toward more herbs for when everything falls apart.  In fact, I am getting ready to help Brian plant some flowers that since says is 94:5 percent effective at repelling mosquitoes.  The idea is mosquito repellant bouquets for like a picnic table or something like that...this plant also has healing qualities.

It's on my mind but nobody is pressuring me . . . . Yet. I think all of the people who got the shots and will get more as "booster" will want and expect every single human on earth to take the same crap they did. It's a mentality of "if I had to take them I want everyone else to also." We will be guilted, shamed, pressured and the forced to get the shots.

Doesn't your doctor pressure you?

My doctor told me after not being able to scare or force me to take it, don't come crying to me when you get Covid. My respect for him dropped.

I'm not a lab rat for an experimental vaccine. And I'm not going to play vaccine roulette. Doesn't it take like eight years for a vaccine to pass tests and to get approved? Maybe someone here with medical knowledge can answer that.

My doctor started wanting to charge me for blood work since I am on Medicare now. I was on Medicaid before and they were free, so I stopped going. The last time I was there I told her I won't get the shots. She didn't pressure me one bit, but that was 10 months ago.

My niece just said she was worried she had Covid because she had a runny nose and a slight headache. Seriously? I have allergies so I have a runny nose often and as for a headache, I have migraines and sinus headaches often too. If I went to the ER every time I had a runny nose or a slight headache, I'd be there almost every day. People are overreacting.

I am so over the covid nonsense...because of the "cleaning" protocol, I can't even go to the ER when my throat is swelling shut and threatening to take my life because the chemicals would only escalate the already dangerous situation...it's time to get over it!  Sorry for the rant.

I agree. I'm so over it too.

I can't even remember the last time I went to the ER. Maybe six or seven years ago. It takes a lot to make me go to the ER. Certainly more than a cough, headache, runny nose and a fever.

Of course back then all those years ago, none of the doctors took me seriously and said nothing was wrong with me when in fact I had cancer and felt very sick. So I had to keep pushing myself even though my strength felt like it had left my body. I had to keep working. I had to gather all the strength I could muster to make it through those days. Those doctors said all I needed was antidepressants and I would feel better. Quacks. Every one of them. I'll never forget that.

Go ahead and rant. I plan to until this Covid fearmongering ends.

They're going to be putting me on Medicare in Feb. when I turn 65. I suppose it's going to be harder for me to pay for tests, doctor visits, prescriptions etc. It's already hard to pay for those things.

When you have a Dr. that tells you you are too ignorant to know your own symptoms and then proceeds to tell your husband he is too ignorant to know my symptoms too, to be quiet and let him tell me my symptoms and what He is going do for them it's out of control to say the least.  Of course this is the same Dr. who told me that my anaphylaxis hadn't killed me yet so don't worry about it.

He was a referral from the Dr. that put me on meds and refused to listen when it was making things worse which caused the severe MCS and the myofascial pain disease that I suffer with on a on stop basis. (and yes, another Dr. confirmed that was the cause.

Or the Dr. that told me I was fat and lazy and needed to cut back on what I was eating when I was literally eating 2-3 BITES of food a week.  Oh the stories keep going...better to stop here...I've reached a limit that is for sure.

I know the feeling very well when doctors won't listen to you and take you seriously. My family doctor is now not taking me seriously. I'm having more and more problems with my feet, ankles, and toes swelling along with redness. They won't answer the phone so I sent him an email about a week ago explaining the swelling and redness. I haven't heard from him. When the swelling first started a while back, he prescribed lasix but that's not helping anymore. It's gradually gotten worse over time. Now I can only wear bedroom shoes.

There are certain prescriptions that my doctor put me on but I don't take them because I know from past experience that those drugs make things worse and cause more problems for me.

yikes, I went into the hospital for swelling...they wanted to do everything but deal with it, eventually they did deal with it and I lost 70 lbs of water...praying for you.

the problems with this med are "hidden" and hard to find but as things got worse, I was able to dig enough to find them since I then knew what I was looking for.  I read all that I could find but none of it confessed to how bad it was.  When I was pregnant with our first child, I had a severe rash and itch, the Dr. gave me a prescription the warning said not to use if pregnant.  I called the Dr. and asked him about it and he said, "I am the Dr. you will NOT question me"...I didn't use it. Duh

The other one they love is that it's all in your head...or your just depressed...I still can't get anyone to even give me Tylenol (medical people) for my chronic non stop pain that often reaches 10 level,  Of course when I was in the hospital they gave me morpheme for another procedure and it didn't touch the pain but they won't even talk about it.  I watched a video on the ailment (which btw the only thing they will do is give me a name for it) and they say that the pain is about 10 times worse than typical muscle or joint pain.  That is just the facts of what is involved...so no help controlling the pain, no help correcting the issue, their meds escalated it to this level and all they want to do is give me a name (which I already have since it is textbook) for the condition....I am not only tired of covid but beyond tired of Dr.s!!!!

May you be strengthened in both the flesh and in wisdom to know what God's will and purpose is and in that find relief and healing.

yikes, I went into the hospital for swelling...they wanted to do everything but deal with it, eventually they did deal with it and I lost 70 lbs of water...praying for you.
The pain and swelling was bad today and the redness is not going away. I bought some Epsom salt to soak my feet and see if that helps.
I think it has to do with blood circulation.

Quote
the problems with this med are "hidden" and hard to find but as things got worse, I was able to dig enough to find them since I then knew what I was looking for.  I read all that I could find but none of it confessed to how bad it was.  When I was pregnant with our first child, I had a severe rash and itch, the Dr. gave me a prescription the warning said not to use if pregnant.  I called the Dr. and asked him about it and he said, "I am the Dr. you will NOT question me"...I didn't use it. Duh
I understand. A doctor put me on a drug years ago that I knew nothing about. It caused problems for me. I looked up the side effects online and I was astonished to find out that drug caused suicidal tendencies. So I stopped taking it right away. The doctor of course didn't tell me that. He didn't warn me about the side effects. And I'd like to know, why in the world a doctor would prescribe a drug that caused suicidal tendencies in the first place.

After I had the mastectomy, the doctor put me on a drug, can't remember the name of it right now, but I looked it up online. It causes seizures. So I stopped taking it. That was all I needed, a new problem to deal with, seizures.  ::)

No, the doctors don't want to be questioned about anything. Because they have the degrees and everything. They think a person is too stupid to know what is going on with their own body. I guess those doctors would have let me die from cancer had it not been that the cancer eventually presented itself so that it could actually be seen. Only then did they take me seriously. I guess if they couldn't see it then it didn't exist.

Quote
The other one they love is that it's all in your head...or your just depressed...
I know. That's why they wanted to put me on antidepressants. As if antidepressants cure cancer.  ::) They just totally disregarded me. They wouldn't listen to a word I said.

I still can't get anyone to even give me Tylenol (medical people) for my chronic non stop pain that often reaches 10 level,  Of course when I was in the hospital they gave me morpheme for another procedure and it didn't touch the pain but they won't even talk about it.  I watched a video on the ailment (which btw the only thing they will do is give me a name for it) and they say that the pain is about 10 times worse than typical muscle or joint pain.  That is just the facts of what is involved...so no help controlling the pain, no help correcting the issue, their meds escalated it to this level and all they want to do is give me a name (which I already have since it is textbook) for the condition....I am not only tired of covid but beyond tired of Dr.s!!!!

May you be strengthened in both the flesh and in wisdom to know what God's will and purpose is and in that find relief and healing.
Sorry you have to live with so much pain. So do I. There are some things that we just have to live with the best we can. Especially when doctors won't listen to us and take us seriously. Just so everyone understands, I know there are good doctors out there but they are few and far between. I thought I had found a good doctor but I was wrong. I'm referring to family doctors for the most part. The ones who see you on a regular basis.

There was a specialist that I was finally able to make an appointment with in the early 2000's. I don't remember which doctor gave the referral. It took me over a year to do that because I had to apply for medical aid and then wait to be approved. I had already gone to several doctors but had gotten nowhere with them. They told me there was no problem with my neck. So finally this specialist, an orthopedic doctor, scheduled an MRI. He said the results showed that I had degenerative disk disease. That several of the disks were hollow and turned on each other which was the cause of the pain. So he was a good doctor who made the right diagnosis. I should give him credit for that. And years later, Social Security sent me to their own doctor who said the same thing that the orthopedic doctor said and said that it was a disability.

I hope and pray the same for you. That you may be strengthened in the flesh and in wisdom to know what God's will and purpose is and find relief and healing.

I see from my last post that this has been going on for about a month. I'm having fevers more often. There is still swelling and redness and pain in my feet and lower legs and just overall feeling bad. This is the second round of antibiotics. It doesn't seem to be getting better. Maybe this antibiotic isn't strong enough. I don't know.

I'm not really scared but I am concerned. Because this can go into the lymph nodes and bloodstream and if it does it can be life threatening. I have full faith and trust in the LORD and I know that my life is in His hands and He will take me when He is ready to do that. So I'm not worried about that. I haven't felt this bad since I had cancer so that is a little hard to take but I can do it.

How do you feel about trying Thieves essential oil?  It could be made into a lotion and put on your feet and legs as well a breathed in....just a thought.

Someone just told me that I'm disrespectful, selfish, and manipulative. Well, I guess there's a first time for everything. And this is the first time in my entire life that anybody has said that about me. I'm not going to let it bother me. If that's what they think of me then that's their choice. Words only hurt if you give permission and I don't give permission.

Thieves oil is for infections.  The story goes that during the plague, there was a group of thieves (four) that would steal from the dead bodies but never got sick.  When they were captured, they were given their freedom in exchange for their secret to not getting sick.  The secret was a blend of essential oils that combats, bacteria, virus, fungus, etc.

If you want something for pain, try wild lettuce.  It is said to have the strength of opiates without any side effects, it is something i take everyday.

I'm better.  The last major hit I took to my health set me back 7 years and I am still trying to get back to that point so we can move forward.  So better but not good.  Thanks for asking.

I appreciate the suggestion and I called the health food store but they aren't open right now because of the pandemic. I left a message and hopefully they will call back soon.

I get most of my supplements from online, Piping Rock, Life Extension is also a good online place.  Amazon has organic wild lettuce tincture available from Hawaii which I have used in the past.

thanks blade. they don't answer the phone at his office so I've been calling and emailing him. I sent him an email today saying that this infection isn't getting much better and that maybe I need an antibiotic with a broader reach, thanks to your suggestion.

Ok thanks. I'll look into that when I have extra money.

Well, my doctor didn't reply or respond with a phone call to my email but what else is new.

My doctor has put me on another antibiotic, not the same one I was taking.

My son was visiting yesterday and he didn't like the way my feet and legs looked. I didn't know till afterwards but he somehow got in touch with my doctor  and today a new antibiotic was delivered. I'll see how it goes and if it doesn't heal soon, I'm going to urgent care where bloodwork can be done. I should have already done that. I've put it off too long. Although I see improvement but after two rounds of antibiotic, I would expect to see a whole lot more improvement.

Thank you PJ. I'm really getting tired of this infection.

I remember that my daughter had an infection and took so many rounds of antibiotics. It never got better no matter how strong the antibiotic was supposed to be. ....That's just what this reminds me of that's all.

My doctor could have arranged for me to come in and he could have done bloodwork but he didn't do that. He just let it continue. And didn't respond to my calls and emails.

I don't want to sound like I don't appreciate that there has been improvement and no fevers with the second round of antibiotics. I'm just frustrated with the way my doctor is handling this. I know he could do more if only he wanted to.

Well, I guess I was wrong about the fevers having stopped. I had fever yesterday and today. I'm not sure why exactly. The fevers had stopped when I was taking Keflex. But when my doctor changed the antibiotic that I'm taking now, the fevers have come back.
