My Awful Day

This has been an awful day. Yesterday the right side of my body went numb and then at 2:00 am I had my very worst asthma attack. I had an inhaler but no antihistamines but after labored breathing all night I finally got most of it under control about 9:00 am. Then my mom got me antihistamines or Mucinex D and I was ok. Then I went to the walkin clinic about the numbness. They think it was some type of pinched nerve. But I wasn’t in any pain. They ruled out a stroke. I may go for an MRI or Catscan next week if it persists. Now I’m just vegging out on the couch. I need sleep.

Fairness

I just came to the realization that people don’t care about fairness, objectivity, context, history, contrasts, and comparisons. They just want to believe what they are fed from the media, globbing people into two dimensional characterizations of good or bad and projecting their own narrative to each situation that fits thier story. And for the most part people don’t know how set their minds are. It’s easier that way, you don’t have to think. It’s a sad indication of where our culture is heading. In a vaccuum where you just reiterate what you’re told by Big Media, we really are just “amusing ourselves to death”

Rex Tillerson’s Visit To Russia

Trump-Russian theorists are going to have to twist themselves into more contortions as Secretary Of State visits Putin to confront him with evidence that Russia conspired with Assad on the chemical attack on Syrians the other day/ His evidence is backed by US and UK authorities/ It definitely doesn’t fit within the Putin’s puppet theme unless you think they had a post-election lover’s quarrel. I’m not pro-Trump and I still think the airstrike was wrong, but I’m glad to see this insipid Russian bromance blowing up in what can only be called a political witch hunt. I don’t like when either side does it and I especially hate seeing the public manipulated by the media so easily. You might catch one or two bad actors in the web of connect the dots, but you’re not going to get the big enchilada, which is what really is wanted because of impeachment. But this investigation could last for longer than Trump’s whole term. So we’re kind of stuck with him from 2020. Keep your eye on the GOP agenda. Donald Trump is the distraction.

Obama’s intel chief says he knows of no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion

Trump

Shouldn’t this have been all over the front pages of the NYT, WaPo, WSJ and talked about on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, Etc…? Guess this doesn’t fit the media narrative. That narrative is Trump is bad and must be defeated by any means necessary. Slather the public with propaganda then when contradicted, just ignore. People will forget in no time. They have no attention spans.
