Other known successful treatments include a good night's sleep, finally breaking 100 in golf or 200 in bowling, or having your mother-in-law leave after living with you for six months.
P.S. One beer will cure an anxiety attack.
Bummer! Thanks a lot for reminding me! Now I am really down, may go outside and step on a bug just out of meanness and frustration.
“As disgusting as it is to watch the death culters around here try to justify euthanasia, its even more disgusting to see them justify butchering someone for spare body parts. I have a feeling that just a few weeks ago none of them would have objected to cutting open Jesse Ramirez.”
We’re getting more and more like China, except we don’t use political prisoners (yet), just the ill. We should do all we can to stop this. I cringe to think what would happen if Hillary ever became president.
"One beer will cure an anxiety attack."
I assume you are trying to be funny here, but as a recovering alcoholic who suffers terribly from a clinical anxiety disorder and panic attacks, I don't find this remark humorous at all. One beer does not "cure" my anxiety. I should know; I spent 25 years or so trying that particular "cure" over and over again. Perhaps you did not mean to be offensive, or perhaps you simply don't know any better, but ridiculing mental illness is no less offensive than ridiculing any other disability. From what I have read on this thread, I would have expected better.
Same here. However, exposing the death cult trolls on FR for what they really are does wonders!
I hope you find peace. If I may suggest as much, you can learn to be kinder to yourself if you relax and be friendlier toward others. There is nothing to be scared of here.
Not to worry. I just read a joke that’s kind of funny, unless you happen to be allergic to peanuts. I heard a rumor that T’wit is allergic to peanuts. (Ok, I made that rumor up.) So I’ll defend your honor by telling a peanut joke, and T’wit can be indignantly offended.
A man walks into a bar - he sits down and orders a drink. The barman gives him his drink, accompanied by a bowl of peanuts. To his surprise, a voice comes from the peanut bowl. “You look great tonight!” it said, “You really look fantastic... and that aftershave is just wonderful!”
The man is obviously a little confused, but tries to ignore it. Realizing he has no cigarettes he wanders over to the cigarette machine. After inserting his money, another voice emits from the machine. “You’re a TOTAL WANKER... My God you STINK... Do you know, you’re almost AS UGLY AS YOUR MOTHER!”
By now, the man is extremely perplexed. He turns to the barman for an explanation. “Ah yes sir,” the barman responds, “The peanuts are complimentary, but the cigarette machine is out of order.”
But OK, if you insist, I'm offended!
Yeah, peanuts, huh? Heh heh. Now I know...
I laughed at the one beer thing. One beer would never have done me anything other than look for the next beer. But different folks react differently. Twenty two years ago, I nearly croaked from alcohol toxity, was in intensive care for three days. I haven’t taken a drink since, but it doesn’t bother me at all. We have a full bar for those who drink, and my wife has wine with meals.
But a mutual friend of many years ago stopped the same time as I and has spent her life until now “not drinking”. Every day is a battle with her. She could not handle visiting with us and seeing dust covered bottles here and there.
I am easily offended though, just don’t know what about. But I will know it if I see it. To be safe, just don’t make lutefisk jokes, or if you do, make sure they are good ones.
I get hit a lot.
Silveira was able to evade a DSS social worker for months. Despite repeated attempts, the case worker was never able to observe Jayla in the home, said DSS spokeswoman Denise Monteiro.
In the face of the allegations, Silveiras friends and family stood by her yesterday. I dont think shes guilty of anything, said her best friend, Lena DaSilva. She loves her kids.
Nicholas Tonti-Filippini, the ethicist who chaired the working committee that drafted the new guidelines, says although voluntary, they should help prevent any instance here of the legal bunfight that occurred in 2005 over the fate of US woman Terri Schiavo, in a persistent vegetative state since 1990.
Her case was dragged through the US courts, and even Congress, amid a bitter dispute between her husband and her Catholic parents over whether her feeding tube should be removed. Her parents had claimed there was still a slight hope she might improve, but she was allowed to die in March 2005 after the Supreme Court refused to intervene. An autopsy later showed her brain had shrunk markedly, and no recovery could have occurred.
Associate Professor John Olver, director of rehabilitation at Melbourne's Epworth Hospital, said brain injury patients were slow to recover and needed better access to physio services that were not predicated on quick results.
"We have had patients in nursing homes who have come back for some reason or other, and because someone realises they show small signs of improvement they end up back in mainstream rehab, and have been able to get out of those nursing homes.''
That certainly gets Monica Blackstock's support. "I would like to see more help available for people like Brendan, rather than being in nursing homes. Being in a family environment, with familiar things around them, is far better for them.
in upholding the federal partial-birth abortion ban, the court did defer to Congress, but not in the ordinary sense of allowing legislators to make a choice between competing values such as women's liberty and fetal life.
Instead, it elevated the medical judgment of members of Congress above that of doctors, including the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists, which held that the banned procedure was sometimes the safest way to terminate a particular pregnancy.
That was a strange choice. As the Terry Schiavo case showed, Congress is not very good at playing doctor in politically charged areas.
Lives of father and daughter intertwined until the end Richard and Anita Lynne Tebbs died within two days of each other
WASHINGTON COUNTY - Family members say Anita Lynne Tebbs' bond with her father, Richard Tebbs Sr., was so strong that it was evident to anyone who knew them.
Abortion has been numbered among the liberal causes of modern politics. Abortion is identified with women's rights just as the Civil Rights Movement was identified with equal rights for African Americans and other minorities. But is abortion really a liberal cause? A careful examination of the history of the abortion rights movement would shock even the most ardent defender of a woman's right to choose. The founders of the movement were in fact racists who despised the poor and who were searching for a way to prevent colored races from reproducing. Rather than defending the rights of the poorest of the poor, which is the tradition of liberalism, the founders advocated abortion as a means of eliminating the poor; especially Blacks, Jews, Slavs, and Italians. And rather than desiring to help the poor through welfare programs, they wanted to eliminate all charities and government aid. Today, most liberals would be shocked to know of this racist heritage. Not only is the founding of the abortion rights movement anti-liberal, but it may have been an attempt to promote racial genocide.
July 5, 2007 (pop.org) - President George W. Bush has done much good for the pro-life movement. His judicial appointments, especially to the Supreme Court, have strengthened the cause of Life. He has made good on his promises to veto anti-life legislation, and we have no doubt that he will continue to do so. Bush generally listens when strong pro-life leaders like Representative Chris Smith and Senator Sam Brownback speak. There is no question but that Bush is fairly conservative where matters of traditional morality are concerned.
At the same time, as time runs out on his presidency, we ask the question: Has Bush done all that could be expected for the cause of Life?
Ronald Reagan, to whom all modern presidents are compared, had the ability to galvanize people. The "great communicator" forged what became known as the "Reagan Coalition"--an alliance of traditional-minded Republicans and Democrats, who were united in part by the cause of Life. This coalition has now splintered on the issues of war, immigration, and the proper role of government. The Life issues have been the big losers.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States. These words, spoken in the East Room of the White House, lifted people to their feet in anticipation of the historic gathering of a presidential veto. Although the excitement of the event focused on President Bush, he intended for the spotlight to spill onto some others in the room. Those of us in the audience (including the staff of CWA) soon found out that people sprinkled on stage and in the audience provided the powerful argument to support Bushs veto of the embryonic stem cell research funding bill.
Douglas Rice was one of them.
LOS ANGELES, July 6, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A pro-life youth organization held a sit-in demonstration today outside the campaign offices of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, not only to protest her radical support for abortion, but to train future leaders of the pro-life movement.
"Hillary has a radical pro-abortion agenda. Our generation has seen enough women hurt and enough children killed, and we are not going to support a candidate who stands for the killing of unborn children and the scarring of women and families," Kortney Blythe, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, told LifeSiteNews.com.
Uff da. I don't know any lutefisk jokes. I am still working on fish boils. I don't know if they are to eat or to cure.
Drink plenty of cod liver oil. Your boils will clear right up.
