Covid long term effects include erectile dysfunction

and testicular vascular damage leading to sterilization.

Heard today on Thom Hartman. Google links available to Forbes, Prevention magazine and Cleveland Clinic.

Posted in GD but here also ...


I am not sure when they disappeared but it’s apparent that the consumer protections no longer exist.

Today I attempted to call Whirlpool to renew the service plan on my refrigerator. The call rang and rang then I got a voice prompt and was put on hold then the call appeared to be answered and was dropped. I called two more times ... the last call someone picked up and I could hear them carrying on a conversation with someone else but they never responded to me on the phone. I eventually hung up. I am resigned to buying a service plan from a non-whirlpool vendor. Their loss.

Mom’s Social Security is deposited to a direct express card from Commenity bank. She also pays life insurance to AIG (the worst...seems there’s been a change of ownership in the past few years). AIG will not accept payment by debit or credit card—only via EFT (electronic funds transfer) which of course requires a bank routing number; or money order or check (ludicrous in this day and age in the middle of a pandemic).
In attempting to get a dedicated checking account with minimal funds set up so that a routing number can be provided to AIG for EFT I’ve run into all kinds of road blocks.

Commenity refuses to provide an account number so EFT is impossible. Reaching a human being there is also impossible—you’re basically put hold for infinity. Without both a routing and account number I can’t redirect mom‘s Social Security check to the dedicated checking account.

Even worse I cannot stop Comenity from getting the social security direct deposit! Social Security requires the routing and account numbers to be provided online to change direct deposits. So basically Commenity is holding her money hostage. And she’s not alone I learned after reading online reviews.

Then there is TX-based AIG who keeps sending threatening letters that her premium, which is current, will be canceled in 4 mos. This is the second time they’ve sent this letter though she’s been paying the policy timely for over a decade. I was just able to have them send a written statement listing all payments thru October and it looks like I will have to again.

I post this for three reasons:
- one: I want the name of the shysters known so that the word can be spread;
- two: I’m sure there are other elderly people being preyed upon and hope that this may help someone to avoid becoming a victim;
- and finally: I wonder if others may have experience or advice.

I abbreviated this but there’s more. Many companies also seem to be using the pandemic as an excuse for shoddy service as well. It sucks. Anybody else seeing this?

So many disreputable companies so little time

So let me get this straight...

We currently have news outlet after news outlet proclaiming or echoing verification that the election was in no way rigged in order to dispute Trump’s unfounded allegations.

We have already learned that Mitch McConnell got more votes in Kentucky than the total population of registered voters EDITED TO ADD: IN CERTAIN COUNTIES there.

How is this not fraud?

The sweeping and absolute statements of zero fraud by the media discount the actual election fraud which did not occur on the Democratic side.

The very source that seeks to invalidate Trump validates all other fraudulent activity— which has a major impact on control of the Senate and Congress going forward.

I call bullshit.

Why are metro area votes being counted last in multiple states?

The fact that this is happening in several red states seems misleading—giving Trump an edge that isn’t really there.

And giving his crazy cult the impression that he won.

Explanation of polling discrepancies

The entire interview is great but the polling topic comes in at around 7:00. #redshift

Kim Foxx won! YES!!

There's no fucking crying in politics.


Remember: Despicable Republicans claim victory even when they lose—like right now ... like in 2000 ...

And their support of their candidates is unwavering even when they murder, cheat and lie.

If you can’t be supportive then you are a liability.

Man up or shut up.
