Vote like life depends on it? NO

Vote BECAUSE your life depends on it.

What do you respect about RBG?

We honor and respect Ruth Bader Ginsburg and we hear of her liberal stances to advance equal justice for all.

We also respect her discipline and persistence in whatever office she was in. Let's remember and teach to our younger friends. There is no great end result without study, contemplation, planning, discipline and hard work.....and all those separate tasks are done many times with no fanfare or support. It is personal dedication that wins.

Medicare does not pay for COVID-19 testing?

I just received a bill from my Blue Cross Medicare carrier regarding my recent Covid test (Negative! YAY!), which listed I pay $15 for the office visit but since they denied payment for the covid test itself, will cost me $64.97. Total I owe= $79.97

I'm over 65 years old, treating for asthma, developed a cough and just traveled cross-country through states with high covid rates. Aren't any or all those concerns worthy of my requesting a covid test?

coin shortage? drop the penny.

It's time to eliminate use of the penny.

For those using credit cards, they pay the full amount of the sale. For those using cash, round down the bill to the nearest nickel.

CPAP vs. face mask

I wonder what the %age of Trump Anti-maskers dutifully wear their CPAP machines every night.

super tornados?

Just a simple question. With the 2 hurricanes approaching the southern US and their counterclockwise rotational winds, would the area between the two of them create super tornados?

Dementia Don

On Morning Joe this morning, Joe laughed at Trump calling Joe Biden 'Slow Joe'. Instead, he said, it's 'Slow Don'.

Instead, 'Dementia Don' is a better name?

Promising treatment for Dupuytren's Contracture.

After years of trying different remedies to slow down the Dupuytren's Contracture of my hands, particularly the left, I finally found something that is working. Serrapeptase capsules!- an enzyme from silkworms.

I have been only using them for 4 weeks and see improvement on the right hand which has much more mild and recent development. But comparing photos I do even see improvement of the left hand which has a head start of 20 years. My hands do not seem tight upon waking up in the morning. While I do not see a decrease in the angle of contraction of the left hand, I have been able to do some stretching excercises. The right hand does not need any stretching.

I understand that 3 capsules (120,000 IU) are the maximum recommended daily dose, but this enzyme also thins the blood and because of body bruising, I had to cut down to 2 capsules. Because of that, I have deleted 80 mg aspirin and Fish Oil Tabs from my diet. I have had no other side effects.

This self-treatment has excited me so much that I have eMailed and sent before and after photo to my Primary Care Physician.

This posting is not a recommendation that you should self-treat with Serrapeptase. It is only my experience.

The next AG should aggressively attack voter suppression.

First place would be limited voting places. The next Attorney General (my choice Glenn Kirschner) should aggressively attack those in authority who suppress voting. No slaps on the hands, no 3 year delay in results.

Any places where lines are longer than 45 minutes will be under federal scrutiny.

Those state attorneys general who do not provide proper voter environments should be arrested for federal felonies.

Rep. Karen Bass for VP?

Congresswoman Karen Bass was just on Morning Joe and is very impressive. Very potentially Presidential.

Side note, totally off topic. I don't care for our Dem. friends so have their moniker listed as Rep. I know it means Representative but subliminally, it could mean Republican, hence confusion.

Instead, should be something like Cong. Karen Bass or what I would really like, MC Karen Bass. MC=Member of Congress
