About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasky: "I'd rather retire then get a a Covid 19 vaccine"

Source: CNN

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley, in a challenge to the National Football League's new Covid-19 training camp and preseason protocols, tweeted that he'd rather retire than get a vaccine.
"Everyone -- Hi, I'm Cole Beasley and I'm not vaccinated!," he wrote in a post Friday that he called a "Public Service Announcement."

"I will be outside doing what I do," Beasley added. "I'll be out in the public. If your scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period. I may die of covid, but I'd rather die actually living."

The defiant tweet comes on the same week the NFL sent teams a memo highlighting different protocols for vaccinated and unvaccinated.

comment: How does one deal with this total stupidity?..

My guess is these 4 sentences (paragraph 3)

"I will be outside doing what I do," Beasley added. "I'll be out in the public. If your scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period. I may die of covid, but I'd rather die actually living."

Last night I had a problem with an addition I did not realize:..."SALT"

....Five minutes I looked it up and found this answer to the question...Is salt addictive?

Salt is a highly addictive taste. Our brains and bodies are designed to enjoy salt because it's necessary to survival. Over the course of human history, finding salt was difficult, so craving salt was a survival mechanism...

Then I asked this question...Why is salt important? (I found this on the internet...)

Salt plays a crucial role in maintaining human health. It is the main source of sodium and chloride ions in the human diet. Sodium is essential for nerve and muscle function and is involved in the regulation of fluids in the body. Sodium also plays a role in the body's control of blood pressure and volume.

I got a bag of tortilla chips yesterday...and couldn't stop.....Yes, I have had "high blood pressure" and
other problems..far more serious.. I somehow thought I could control that bag of chips. I couldn't....
..........Does that sound familiar?.........No more chips....and I got some pretzels that I might
give away..fresh bags, not opened....And YES>>>>>>>>>

...........................................I LIKE SALT A WHOLE LOT.... YES...I DO...YOU BETCHA!!!...............



The truth will come out about Donald Trump..

Always does on evil people. Sometimes it takes time, and sometimes no time. So, do you know who
exposed the awful truth about Joe Stalin?..It was another Russian boss named ..Nikita Khrushchev
Yes, Stalin had died, so Khrushchev didn't need to worry about repercussions, but the truth came out that Stalin killed hundreds of thousands if not millions of his own people..

Therefore, how will the truth come out about Donald Trump?...My guess is that after the NY Attorney General indicts Trump, we will hear from ..some "insiders" about the crooked things that Donald has gotten away with.

.....Unknown until the insiders tell the story. And it won't be pretty for one reason: Donald Trump thinks
he can get away with anything, and the "insiders" will not let him get away with "nothing"..Trump is out
of power and out of gas. (also out of intelligence)..

...It is that fact that Trump thinks he can get away with anything, that will put him down. Trump hurts
people and some that he has hurt will turn on him, now that he ..."is out of power" Besides there
are a number of Republicans who do not want Trump to be their leader under any circumstances. He is
not the person to lead the party out of its wilderness. Trump does not know what is coming. Most of
us here at Democratic Underground will be glad that he will be totally out of the picture..forever.. And
many honest Republicans will feel exactly the same. And they will be out there getting rid of
Trump forever....(and you don't think this will happen?...No one expected Khrushchev to tell the inside
story about Stalin....And we will hear the inside story of Crook Donald Trump

"Time lost can never be regained--not for love or money" Sydney J. Harris..

Sydney J. Harris was a columnist at the Chicago Sun Times, & Chicago Daily News...I clipped this article from the 80s, date unkown, from the Sun, Times. It makes just as much sense now, as it did then. I would like to share this with you. I believe this is a very special column. (I posted this 2 years ago, time to post again)
______________________________________________________________________________________


"Time lost can never be regained--not for love nor money."

I have always dislike the phrase, Time is money." That is the last thing that time is, for it is irreplaceable, and not all the money in the world can bring it back or halt it or reverse it.

....Actually, time is love. People who are always in a hurry, who have no time for anything except the most important matters, fail to understand the nature and needs of love.

...Many a man in our society imagines that he is "supporting" his family by working long hours, attending innumerable meetings and traveling incessantly. But through his motives may be good, his reasoning is faulty.

...No amount of material goods can serve as an effective substitute for time spent with loved ones. The most "neglected" children are not those of the poor, but those of the rice--or those trying to get there. There are no presents as important as presence.

...We have become victims of time. Our schedules are running us, instead of our running them. While it is true that people in the Middle Ages worked many longer hours than we do, a third of the days in a year were devoted to holidays when families were together.

...Time is love in other ways as well--the time we spend with the old, the infirm, the time a doctor spends with a patient, the time a teacher spends with a student in special needs of help, the time a pastor devotes to the personal needs of his flock. In all these areas, all of us are guilty of being dominated by the clock, of rationing our time so that everyone is "taken care of," but no one is really cared for...............

...
...Children of course at the most injured by our obsessive delusion that time is money. Fathers will spend weeks alienated from their children, and imagine that an afternoon's fishing experience or trip to the zoo makes up for this neglect.

..It would be more realistic to turn the proverb around and say, "money is time"-- that the best thing that money can do for you is buy the time to demonstrate your love by your company, your interest, your concern and your pleasure.

...Of course, I recognize that there are millions of broken families where this is hard or impossible, and that millions of mothers with young children must work in order to meet the families bills. But I wonder how many of these might still be together if the father had not put his job before his parental responsibilities. If the mother had not gone to work for reasons other than financial need..

...Time is love, above all else. It is the most precious commodity in the world, and should be lavished on those we care about the most about When it is not, retribution is swift and certain and there is no turning back the clock.......(end of column)

Why Solitaire Should be Required in All Public Schools.....K through 12 in the U.S.A.

This type of ..."Solitaire" Has 4 Rows at the Top of the Game For the Aces..(see right below)

The across the top room for 4 Aces. As Aces come up, they are placed in one of 4 Rows..

..........row 1 ............. .......row 2 . .............row 3 . ........row 4
_____________ _______________. . ______________ . ______________

And then,...7 More Rows are below for all cards..........Below is an example:


_______ _______ ________ _______ _______ _______ ___________

cards ..... ..cards ..... cards ....cards .......cards ....cards ...cards


The game goes on until the player WINS........OR ........LOSES......Then the player plays it
again and again and again..........................................

A Good Grammar School Teacher could teach this game in a few days...AND...after a few days
everyone learns to play this game..If you play the game once, and get the hang of it, you will
play it again, and again, and again, and again..............Once learned, the game is easy to play,
and the computer shuffles the cards and sets up the game............................

...........................And the game is often played again and again and again...............................

NOW..................WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LEARNING THIS GAME.???????????????

.....................THE PURPOSE IS TO TEACH AND IMPORTANT LIFE ABILITY.......................
.....................IN ORDER TO LIVE A HEALTHY & PRODUCTIVE LIFE.................................

.......... ............ WE ALL..........NEED ..........PATIENCE!.............................

......................THAT IS THE ABILITY TO LIVE WITH A PROBLEM AND NOT SOLVE IT IMMEDIATELY!!!!

....................... LEARNING HOW TO PLAY THIS KIND OF SOLITAIRE............................

......................................... TEACHES........PATIENCE !!!!!......

__________________________________________________________________________________
. Once a person learns this game, most of us do not forget it......
...................And, you can play on the computer, or play with real cards. It doesn't matter..
..................Here is the most important point about playing this game:.......
A player only wins about 1 in 7 of all games...If you play this form of solitaire...you learn to
be patient with yourself, and, THEN YOU ALSO LEARN TO BE PATIENT WITH OTHERS..

______________________________________________________________________________
.PEOPLE THESE DAYS ARE ALWAYS RUSHING TO EVERYWHERE...HERE AND THERE...
OFTEN TAKING SOME TIME, BRINGS MUCH BETTER RESULTS.....DRIVING A CAR
WAY OVER THE SPEED LIMIT IS AN EXAMPLE...AND RUSHING THROUGH THE STORE
IN A HURRY IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE.......IN BOTH CASES MISTAKES MIGHT BE
MADE THAT COULD EASILY BE AVOIDED IF WE SLOWED DOWN AND TOOK
TIME TO ACCOMPLISH A TASK.


IF, this is not clear, (and perhaps this is not explained clearly) other lessons be found on the internet, or you could learn this game
from a friend who knows how to play
..Yes, I believe this is worth learning....

Please think about this one and give it a chance to settle in your mind.
Yes, ...... all comments are acceptable:
Yes, "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly......and of course, The VERY VERY, UGLY

One simple fact about Joe Biden...He is someone we can all be proud of..

...Joe has had lots of experience in government and life. All kinds of experiences, some very good and some very bad. Joe is very kind, very intelligent, articulate, not overbearing, not new, works well with others, and knows what to do where & when. To have Joe Biden represent the United States of America as our leader makes us proud to be part of this country. This is the exact opposite that the last leader did for our country. He embarrassed us.

..To see Joe represent all of us, makes me feel proud and happy..We now have a leader who is respected by the entire world. We don't have to explain his background, how he got elected, where he comes from and this and that. He is recognized all over the world as an outstanding leader. (that is before he became President of the U.S.A.)

...We have had this before about 68 years ago in 1952. An American leader named Dwight David Eisenhower was already recognized when he became President of the U.S.A. as a great leader, and we were all proud of him and his previous history when he became President. While Joe's history is totally different, he is already recognized as an outstanding leader of the U.S.A., and I am very proud that he is our President today.
