    There's a local business here in northern Michigan that makes fertilizer from manure. My grandma taught me a long time ago that horse manure makes the garden grow. She was right.

    Mark Esper on 60 min bragging about his conspiratorial insubordination, coordinated with Mark Milley, to contradict the orders of a sitting president.

    They are fully aware that they pulled off a coup, which is exactly why they have been accusing regular Americans of attempting a coup.

    And absolutely nothing will happen to him, while the 1/6 "Insurrectionists" rot in jail. This is a third-world country.

    There are a few things going on here. First, a lot of old people died from COVID. We know this from the death certs and death claims filed for final expense insurance.

    For the younger crowd? It seems like a combination of things. Substance abuse/overdose is a big one. Some of it seems to be a bunch of unhealthy young Americans whose bodies couldn't handle COVID. And, some of it seems to be folks not getting medical treatment they need for diabetes, cancer treatments, and other things which could be managed or prevented. They were scared out of the doctor's office or ER by the 24/7 fear porn caused by the media (can you charge news anchors with murder?). Here is the rest of what Davison (One America) said that somehow never got reported by conservative news outlets:

    "CDC data indicates that 65% of 3Q excess deaths can be directly attributed to COVID. Our own claims data is consistent with that as well. Based on the data and our analysis, we believe that a significant portion of the remaining excess deaths are driven by deferred medical care and individuals who recover from COVID but later die from the toll COVID has taken on their bodies."


    Maybe the elephant in the room is that, unfortunately, there are a lot of weak, fat, sick, or otherwise unhealthy Americans who cannot tolerate a small (let along a large) disturbance in their "normal" life. Something else on the horizon is that heart-related problems are still the # killer in the U.S., and those numbers are not decreasing. If I recall correctly, even among teenagers, it represents something like 3% of deaths.

    Doc: “Did you use contraception?”

    Woman: “No”

    Doc: “Did you ask him to wear a condom or pull out?”

    Woman: “No”

    Doc: “Were you raped?”

    Woman: “No”

    Doc: Abortion denied. Next time you really want an unwrapped dick, keep your legs closed and your asshole open. Good day to you”.


    How often would a conversation like this realistically happen? Maybe I'm way off base here, but don't most women who don't want kids use some sort of birth control? And, the abortion is for unintentional pregnancy after the first line or 2 of defenses fails? I saw some statistic recently that 90%+ of abortions are done due to social or economic reasons (i.e. the woman doesn't want and/or cannot afford to raise a child). The remaining percentage if for health reasons of one kind or another, including the health and welfare of the woman. I don't know if that's true or not, but imagine the consequences of having a child you don't want and cannot afford: 1) Automatic increases in welfare spending to take care of said child and the expansion of the (literal) nanny state (since when did conservatives become socialists?), 2) Permanent psychological damage and resentment of having a child you don't want and can't afford to raise and; 3) the severe psychological (and possibly physical) damage to the unwanted child.

    Somehow, this results in some sort of social good?

    It doesn't need to happen in such a brusque fashion, but the issue is agency, no? How do you teach that?

    I don't particularly care about the abortion debate, but I would hazard a guess that 90 percent of humans born throughout our history fall into this category.

    I would like to know how many of the younger patients that died of "COVID" also had a history of vaping and/or smoking. I bet it's high.

    Also, here's a thought to add to the conspiracy theories...
    Another reason the dems pushed the vax so hard (besides control, power, etc) is because Trump is responsible for the vax. It was made during his watch and he made it possible.
    They know it is shit.
    When he announces he is running again, the facts start to come out about how bad it really is (it's starting to trickle in now, ie, JJ vax not recommended).
    Then they blame Trump for all of the problems (We trusted him! He lied to us! He is responsible for this vaccine that is hurting so many people, blah blah)
    Long shot? maybe, but I don't put anything past these fuckers.

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I received three absentee ballots just prior to the 2020 election.

    I have never requested an absentee ballot.

    One was in my name, one was in my 3rd daughter's name who has never lived in the county where I reside now, and the third ballot simply said something like "we think you might have someone in your home who needs an absentee ballot."
