Back in January and February I fell on the ice - hard - and I jammed my hip. The trauma cut off the blood supply to the femoral head and I have avascular necrosis. The femoral head is disintegrating. I have to have a hip replacement, no ifs ands or buts.
This morning I got a cortisone shot in my hip. I cannot believe I immediately feel so much better. I'll get the hip replacement this fall. When the cortisone wears off I'll be miserable again.
Has anyone gone through this and can anybody tell me how long the relief from the shot lasts?
Thanks in advance.
...completely deranged, dangerous, out of control, violence-rousing, riot-inciting, coup-staging seditionist, and if they say yes they need to keep asking them WHY.
This is just before the 4th of July weekend. We get time to think about the ideals this country was founded on (and which are being tattered right now by the SCOTUS) and the fact that a former president staged a coup to steal an election, wanted his VP dead, assaulted a SS agent, throws things against the wall in temper tantrums, etc.
And I don't think this is the peak.
But we get to think about the 4th of July and THIS WHOLLY incompetent, criminal unfit, insane motherfucker. What a fucking contrast.
Because everything he does is a fucking crime.
Trump SPAC faces grand jury investigation
The company, known as Digital World Acquisition Corp., revealed the subpoenas in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing dated June 24 and warned they could materially delay, materially impede, or prevent consummation of the deal. If the combination goes through, Trumps business could gain access to more than $1 billion committed by investors.
The grand jury is at least the third investigative entity to scrutinize Trumps special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) deal, after the SEC and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority opened investigations of their own.
Kelly's office immediately pushed back on Johnson's claim, saying: "Senator Johnson's statements about Representative Kelly are patently false."
"Mr. Kelly has not spoken to Sen. Johnson for the better part of a decade, and he has no knowledge of the claims Mr. Johnson is making related to the 2020 election."
On Thursday, Johnson said Troupis contacted him by text message on the morning of Jan. 6, 2021, to get a document on "Wisconsin electors" to Pence.
Johnson said he then introduced the attorney to his chief of staff by text message to handle the request. He said he did not know what the document was or intended to accomplish.
In a story by conservative reporter John Solomon and shared by Johnson on Thursday, Solomon reported Kelly also called Troupis to get elector documents to Pence that morning through Johnson.
Enough bashing each other for what SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED. Revisiting 2016 or the stolen SCOTUS seat or the fucking Jill Stein voters is not going to make our lives any better this day.
What can we do NOW?
Have you written letters to your congresspeople? Made calls? Sent money for abortion travel? Attended a protest?
No? What the fuck are you waiting for, someone else to do the work for you? If you want to save America, then let's get to work.
We need EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US to be engaged and furious and to do whatever we can. Whining about the past won't do a damn thing.
Tell me what you've done.
I've written my Senators and I've donated money for abortion funds. Tell me what you've done.

Here's an example letter:
Codifying abortion access through federal legislation is one of our last options to protect pregnant women. Last September, the House passed the Womens Health Protection Act (H.R. 3755), which creates legal protections for both abortion providers and abortion care patients at the federal level. The bill safeguards access to abortion nationwide by preventing restrictions such as six-week bans, mandatory delay periods, biased anti-choice abortion counseling, and medically unnecessary ultrasounds.
It is now time for the Senate to act. Nobody should face forced birth. The rights to privacy and bodily autonomy are fundamental in a free and fair society. I demand that Senator YOUR SENATOR supports and immediately passes a filibuster carve-out and H.R. 3755.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Every time this illegitimate SCOTUS comes out with another horrifying ruling I think of RBG, but especially today.
She thought abortion should have been decided on a different case, and based on equal protection, or sex discrimination, not privacy, because she said that basing it on equal protection wouldn't allow it to be overturned. Basing it only on privacy wasn't as strong a foundation. She said that only women become pregnant, so discrimination on that basis is a violation of equality.
The government is ... protecting the record by involving the Court in the process of addressing a potential conflict before it undermines a proceeding and a defendants right to competent and conflict-free representation, prosecutors wrote Wednesday.
The unusual request follows media reports that Powells nonprofit organization, Defending the Republic, has used some of the millions of dollars it has raised through spreading conspiracy theories about the 2020 election to pay legal fees for Oath Keepers members facing trial. According to BuzzFeed and Mother Jones articles cited in the filing, four defendants including Stewart Rhodes, who founded the self-styled militia group have taken funds from Powells organization.
All four are accused of obstructing Congresss counting of electoral college votes on Jan. 6, 2021; Rhodes and two others are accused of engaging in a seditious conspiracy against the United States.
The subpoena for the chairman, David Shafer, represents a significant step because he played a central role in organizing the fake slate of electors from Georgia and coordinated the effort with the Trump campaign.

Smells like conspiracy.
