  1. Well smarty pants, I wasn't looking at her . . . .
  2. I don't want to discuss it, but considering something that happened to me recently, I disagree.
  3. I remember Barbara Branden supporting the people who were defending their businesses during the LA riots (?) I think. They were using rifles and it sounded like a scene from an Ayn Rand novel. If you owned a business would you defend your property if someone was trying to kill you, burn your building down, or loot your business? I don’t think charges should be filed against a person who is using ‘legitimate and equal,” retaliatory force. Peter
  4. Only if I don't have any Activia yogurt in the fridge. I have mentioned this before, but when I donate my blood at the blood bank, and it is AB pos and supposedly not used for any transfusions except for other AB pos people, they call the local hospital and they come and pick it up, supposedly for babies. I was told this is just BS to get a more frequent, "feel good" donation . . . except . . . I have seen them show up as I am sitting their recuperating from the blood loss. Sometimes it is the same woman who comes and gets it from the hospital and I have been personally thanked. Peter
  5. Cough, cough. You have a nice neck and I need your vaccinated blood to jump start my immune system. Vlad the Vampire. Ugh. That's gross.
  6. Her speech tonight which wasn't long, but still ran a few minutes past 11pm was moving and fulfilling. She is a great first lady.
  7. Merlin wrote: “The count of people wanting a vaccine is probably very large.” Too bad we can’t call on Michael Clarke Duncan (1957–2012) who played John Coffey in "The Green Mile." In my version of the movie John Coffey could breath-out the antibodies to everyone within a mile. Peter Notes: Duncan took security jobs while in Los Angeles while trying to get some acting work in commercials. During this time, he worked as a bodyguard for celebrities Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, and The Notorious B.I.G., all the while doing bit parts in television and films. Wh
  8. Thanks. I missed that key point . . . again. Yet, could that plasma also sub for a vaccine? I think many younger people congregate "to get covid, and what the hell, get over it and never have to worry about it again." What does anyone think about Sweden's herd immunity policy? Is it still a viable alternative, if you are looking at "the big picture" and care about the elderly and infirm but . . . Peter Notes.

  9. RAZORFIST: The New Left, she argued, were reduced to a slathering horde of me-monkeys conditioned to rally around just one social or political cause at once, easily corralled into individual groups for ease of exploitation for fucking votes, endlessly generating political pressure groups and lobbying organizations, demanding unequivocally their cause célèbre takes center stage in the party's platform. end quote Bernie Sander’s hero is Josef Stalin. What a monster. Peter From “Archangel,” pages 67 - 71 by Thomas Harris . . . whenever I find myself thinking about Josef Stalin, I
  10. Merlin quoted: “The evidence for convalescent plasma relies on more than a dozen observational studies and clinical trials that don’t meet the randomized placebo standard.” end quote Keep up the good work but I may sit that test out. I will focus on, and wait for, news of a tested vaccine. I get flu shots from Walgreens or CVS pharmacies usually so when they have it? Here is an interesting quote about relevancy. Peter Near the beginning of Arthur Conan Doyle's “A Study in Scarlet”, Sherlock Holmes, after being told of the Copernican theory and the composition of the solar system, s
  11. From Real Clear Politics. National polls. On August 25, 2016, Hillary Clinton was ahead of President Trump by 6.0 percent. On August 25, 2020 Biden is ahead of President Trump by 7.6 percent. I checked some battleground states and it looks like Biden is currently ahead in all of them but North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, and Iowa. It will be interesting to see if there are changes after the last day of the Republican Convention. Peter Battle for the White House RCP Poll Averages Election 2020 Biden Trump
  12. From Fox News. Donald Trump Jr. warns of ‘silenced majority’ as RNC speakers say freedom, safety on the line in November/ Paul Steinhauser I like the sound of ‘SILENCED MAJORITY.’ In other news I received a chain email from President Trump but he asked me to not “share it,” and I won‘t.
  13. Orating soldiers? I was thinking of Levin, Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. I would not want to debate them. I didn't watch the GOP program tonight because it seemed like it might be boring. And Season one episode four of Grimm was about to come on. I may watch some of the rest of the GOP"s shows, or just the highlights. I thought of a joke and it actually got a laugh. Biden is staying in Rehoboth Beach Delaware tonight. That's about 45 minutes away from where I live. If you are a local and someone asks about Rehoboth you always tell them, "There's a hobo in Rehoboth, so they will know how to
  14. Thanks. This is one area that the Q spoofers could get away with since Q is never identified.
  15. You could play some of the beautiful “Clair de Lune” with that instrument. Claude Debussy (22 August 1862 – 25 March 1918) was a French composer. He is sometimes seen as the first Impressionist composer, although he vigorously rejected the term. He was among the most influential composers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
  16. "I am Spartacus!" I can't tell if that is Barron Trump or not.
  17. How could that guy "take" so many bullets and still resist arrest? It did seem as if he were going for a weapon or trying to drive off. If he continues to survive it will be interesting to see what was in his blood stream. I thought his female companion was justified and brave in her attempt to stop what was going on.
  18. Michael quoted President Trump: “The greatest Election Fraud in our history is about to happen.” Rush Limbaugh plays a lot of those montages of talking pit bulls barking the same tune and it really spotlights how evil and propagandistic they are. He maintains that they either go to the same sites or receive calls or emails telling them what they MUST say that day . . . or lose their place in the “in crowd” or is it the “in crowed?” And they won’t get their dog biscuits either. I like Levin but he gets a bit too, blisteringly mad, as do a few others on Fox or their own radio program
  19. From contact@victory.donaldtrump.com Sun 8/23/2020 11:16 PM What will the Trump administration do in his next term as President? They will create MORE jobs, CUT taxes, PROTECT American jobs The Coronavirus will be ERADICATED America will END its reliance on China and bring back 1 MILLION manufacturing jobs Insurance premiums will be LOWERED, Social Security and Medicare will be protected, prescription drug prices will be CUT, and preexisting conditions will be covered School Choice will be provided to EVERY Child in America We will DRAIN THE SWAMP by passing
  20. Disgusting propaganda? The top three Microsoft stories at 12:05? House vote to block postal, allocate mail funds changes from The New York Times. From The Hill. Pelosi on Trump’s very dangerous FDA attack. From The Washington Post: Trump looks to RNC for campaign reset. Like a pack of wolves, they have not conscious or shame. Peter
  21. Perhaps he is suggesting the FDA doesn't want to make the decision, 'political." Maybe they are political and want him to NOT receive the votes he would have gotten if there had been no covid. Or the Deep State is making it harder for the FDA to do its job so that inaction will affect the vote. Maybe the Deep State want to kill off Trump voters especially older people who may be more susceptible to the virus. I don't think he is saying the FDA is part of the Deep State. yadda yadda yadda.
  22. I tried a test donation just now and it seemed to be going well and it was loading my info as I clicked on each window box. For example it would give me the last four digits of my credit card and if I clicked on it then the whole number was uploaded. But suddenly as I was nearing the end of the process, it started back at the beginning with the amount screen except it now had a comma instead of a decimal point where the amount goes. Peter

      And the new screen has the country of Moldova as my place of residence. Weird. I just tried it again. Maybe I will try it without letting the system prefill my info. Peter

      Peter

      I tiredly tried again and it flipped back to the screen with Moldova as my country but I plowed on and suddenly the amount with a comma switched over to an amount with a decimal point. I deliberated did not prefill the info boxes though hints were offered and my donation went through. Peter

      Thank you, Peter. 

  23. I have tried to do a donation three times and it keeps telling me to try later. Is anyone else having a problem donating? Peter
