  • San Francisco Board of Supes to put sugar tax before voters

    I thought there was already a FEDERAL tax on sugar.

    I remember years ago reading about how so many of our secular holidays were designed to up the usage of sugar...such as easter candy, halloween candy etc. to fill the federal coffers with $$$.

    I’ll bet if someone searched really well, the info will turn up.

    I will never forget this as long as I live. Thirteen month old ‘’B’’, a little girl, didn’t know she could walk. She had a plastic child’s lawn mower that she held onto every where she went. Now and then she’d pick it up as she walked, but as long as she was holding on to the handle, she thought she was supported.

    One day as she was trucking up and down the hallway, little ‘’L’’ came to visit. He was 16 months old and even then he thought he was a hot shot. He was actually quite the bully for such a young one.

    Miss B was trucking down the hall minding her own business when L decided he wanted that lawn mower. He babbled at her in a very demanding tone of voice and she babbled back in a defiant tone of voice which was definitely a NO! Well, he shoved her and she fell on her butt. He grabbed the mower and headed in the opposite direction. She got up and RAN after him, sans lawnmower, and when she caught up with him, she gave him such a shove that he fell on his butt. All the while, she scolded him at the top of her little voice and I can just imagine what she was saying because none of us could understand a word of it.

    But the body language, the look on her face, and the tone of her voice said it all. L got the msg. He HUMBLY got back on his feet, she grabbed her mower and toddled back down the hall. He trailed her just apologizing as best he could babble.

    From that day forward, that boy NEVER, ever disrespected Miss B again. Miss B is now 19 years old and Mr. L STILL looks at her with respect and kindness. I watched these kids grow up and that youngster never put on a bully act like that again, to anybody.

    Until the day Miss B set that boy strait, he was a monster brat. Some kids just are. I’m also glad that the mothers of the children took it in stride. They recognized what was going on, and since the result was fair and good, they left it alone.

    Yep, it was one of life’s ‘’Kodak Moments’’.

    Sirens Sound in Samaria, for the First Time
    Hamas’s latest salvo of rockets appears to have been aimed at Jerusalem and the Binyamin / Samaria region.

    By Gil Ronen
    First Publish: 7/13/2014, 8:17 PM

    Hamas launched dozens of rockets at Israel over the Sabbath, striking the Judea region south of Jerusalem for the first time - but in areas under Palestinian Authority control. Arabs in Hevron gathered to celebrate the rocket attacks on their Jewish neighbors but instead faced a rocket strike on Hevron itself.

    A salvo was launched at the Jerusalem area in the early evening Saturday, and one rocket exploded in the yard of a home in Arab-controlled Hevron. Another rocket struck Bethlehem, also under PA control, and a third hit near Efrat, not far from Bethlehem.


    I had to chuckle at that one! The irony of it :-P

    When I walk into family dollar, and discover that their prices are HIGHER than the dreaded Wallyworld, guess where I’m NOT going to shop?

    I don’t care if their dishsoap is 2 cents higher, I won’t buy it.

    And what do you do with clothing that won’t wash? Is it reasonable to purchase clothes to wear once and throw it away because the stains won’t wash out?

    I can purchase a bag of potting soil at FD for $3.00, a little bag. Or I can go to wallyworld and purchase a $40 lb bag for $2.98

    I don’t need to pay $5.00 for a potato peeler, only to have the thing come apart and injure my hand so that I have to get stitches...the first time I use it.

    As long as retailers treat their customers like imbeciles, they should expect to see their businesses fail.

    Apparently, another weak spot in the geography is the Sinai. It’s a demilitarized zone and I hear it’s become a haven for terrorists. They can go into gaza from there.

    Both Egypt and Israel have been in a quandry as to how to deal with Sinai. If Egypt were to patrol it, then it becomes a security risk for Israel, and is against the agreement between both countries to have their militarys there. So, both chose to honor that agreement.

    The mess in the middle east is extremely complex, and I’m only just tapping the edges trying to understand the situation there.

    It took someone else to explain to me, some of it. Makes my head spin.

    And the struggle between Jacob and Esau continues. Why? Esau didn’t give a hoot about the birthright. He sold it to Jacob (Jacob is Israel and the inheritance was the land) What Esau wanted was the blessings that went with it! And when he didn’t get those blessings, he was hell bent to kill Jacob (israel). Now he is represented by his descendants who STILL don’t give two hoots about the land, and who STILL want to kill Israel.

    The problem is, when Esau had access to the land, it was dead and barren. It only bloomed when Israel (Jacob) came back home.

    The word Hamas in Hebrew means ‘violence’.

    So there’s a nutshell version of 5,000 years worth of history.

  • Police kill charging cow who sent officer airborne

    07/09/2014 11:06:44 AM PDT · 44 of 57
    PrairieLady2 to Bigg Red

    On a more serious note..

    That officer is lucky to be alive and uninjured.

    A few months ago a cow attacked a rancher (in the dark), threw him airborn, and the rancher landed on his head and broke his neck. It was a serious injury like the one Christopher Reeves got. The only reason the rancher wasn’t further injured was because his cow dog got the attention of the cow, and kept her away from the rancher.

    This cow was thought to be dead because the area had a serious forest fire just a year prior. Apparently, she managed to escape and got bred. She’d hidden her baby in the hay stack that the rancher was attending and fixing fence around...in the dark, yes. So, he never saw her coming to protect her baby.

    A serious concussion messed up his head for a while, and intensive surgeries repaired the breaks. He’s lucky not only to be alive, but still walking. He has a lot of physical stuff to attend to, and deal with.

    So ya, that officer was lucky that he wasn’t harmed any more than he was.

    Still, the way the story is written is funny.

    I’m sure the dispatcher was laughing like crazy as he/she put out the dispatch...typical humor.

    Watching how being sec. of state dragged her down so badly, I really can’t see her being president of much more than the PTA.

    She may have flown countless hours (causing her blood to stagnate as stated in the article) but so do pilots, and without the ill effects. This woman has health issues which would be taxed beyond reason should she become president. It’s unreasonable of her to expect herself to even hold up for the first two years.

    From my outside perspective, she’s NOT presidential material, and that’s aside from her distasteful politics, which I don’t think would be good for the nation in general.

    There ARE women who make good leaders, but I don’t believe that Hillary Clinton is made from that material.

  • Hospital Tries to Force Mom to Let It Have a Private Talk With Her Daughter About Birth Control

    06/18/2014 5:43:32 AM PDT · 19 of 23
    PrairieLady2 to Sherman Logan

    Having worked in hospitals in the past, I’ve seen first hand how it can be with teens, healthcare and parents. I’ve seen several occasions where the teen was sexually active, didn’t want the parents to know, and was having a health crisis as a result of the sexual activity.

    I’ve seen parents explode at doctors for even asking if the kid was sexually active, and even when it was explained to the parents that it was merely an effort to isolate the possible cause of the health problem, they still were upset and didn’t want to return to the health care facility if Dr. X was on duty.

    It’s understandable that a kid would be embarrassed about a health issue relating to sex since so many educators these days insist that parents shouldn’t be trusted..I’ve seen the manual in print so that point is inarguable with me.

    It’s also understandable that a health facility would want to treat problems related to sexual activity since so many of those health issues can be quite deadly. A bladder infection can destroy kidneys!

    However, ASKING a parent for those few moments with the kid is respectful of both the parent and the child. Taking a moment with the parent alone to explain and educate is a MUCH better approach than to have a policy such as in the OP.

    Some parents DO cherish the ‘intimacy’ of sexually educating their children themselves. As a young girl, I remember those moments with my mom and the bonding which occurred and lasted a lifetime as a result of those talks, and the trust which was built.

    And as a parent, I resented the government’s efforts to impose upon me and my child with regard to such private matters. While I was trying to teach my kids to keep their pants on, the schools were teaching them how to deceive me by going behind my back. Thankfully, I paid attention to my kids so when one of them did become pregnant, “I” approached her and all turned out well. AND, that child who was not aborted, became an educator AND has offspring :) Many lives were saved that day.

    When a thing is ‘’understandable’’ it doesn’t mean it’s acceptable or agreed with. It simply means taking a moment to look objectively at both sides of the issue to see where people are coming from. Because somewhere in the middle lies a solution.

    The most important relationship a kid has are his/her parents. Even when the parents are totally lousy, they are STILL the most important people in that child’s world, for better or for worse. Considering that today’s parents were yesterday’s school kids, it doesn’t make sense that the government would attempt to usurp that relationship. You would think that this generation of parents would be more open to being ‘educated’ about their own kids since they tend to come from such small families themselves and of working parents.

    No teacher or school can even hope to take the place of loving parents, nor should they. Doing so is an exercise in poor judgment, faulty philosophy and is not in the best interest of kids. Tearing families apart weakens the entire nation, leading to the hopeless crisis of social ills and financial woes that are entrenched in our country today.

    It’s a pattern with a purpose, and not a good purpose.

    PrairieLady2 to Ghost of SVR4

    I sure hear that!! The effects of divorce on children and families aren’t always negative. Sometimes they are a huge positive!

    I could hardly restrain myself when my parents divorced when I was a kid. It was such a HUGE relief that I wanted to jump for joy and shout the good news to the entire world. One of my siblings understood and was also glad. Getting a divorce was one of the most RIGHT things my mother ever did.

    Some kids do suffer and struggle, and from what I see in young parents today, there is a huge disconnect between parents and kids. Many parents today don’t even have sense enough to put a hat on a baby in the winter time, and put nothing but receiving blankets on the child in a cold plastic chair. It’s pathetic. And most frequently, don’t know how to set limits on behavior in public.

    Yes, the parents need to be educated but I’m not sure government force is the answer.

    PrairieLady2 to Olog-hai

    I went to the link and a sound bite popped up. The fasting they talked about was not a fast devoid of all food, but a temporary reduction in calories. A person eats normally for 5 days, and then for 2-3 days, they drop their caloric intake to 500 calories per day.

    In my opinion, if done correctly, it can actually be a boost to the system IF on those fasting days a person consumes only vegetables. Nice, garden fresh, organic veggies!

    Do you know how many veggies you’d have to eat before you consume 500 calories worth??? Well, you wouldn’t be hungry during those fast days, and you’d be filling your body with good nutrition, vitamins, minerals instead of corn chips, snickers bars, and soda pop.

    A person’s body couldn’t help but respond in a positive manner with an influx of goodies like that. Add a lot of fresh clean water to that diet, and you flush out garbage, and rehydrate your body.

    Add some vigorous fun play to this, and you have a recipe for good health.
    I think it just depends on how you handle it.

    PrairieLady2 to EternalVigilance; Morgana

    “No person shall be deprived of life without due process of law.”


    I agree with you 100%. While biologically, a ‘’fetus” (latin for ‘little one’) IS a human being, and most sensible people, including children realize this, our government denies it.

    Right from the beginning, the numbers used to attempt to justify abortion (NARL) were lies. The head of NARL admitted it several years later.

    People tried to say that they were concerned about coat-hanger abortions yet if you look at nursing text books from the late 60’s, and you read them along with the annontations, you will find that there might have been 3 deaths due to back alley/or coat hanger abortions. That’s it.

    These abortion clinics don’t want to be associated with hospitals, because they don’t want to be associated with injuries due to abortions. There are more injuries due to legal abortions than there ever were for back alley/illegal abortions.

    Any woman who walks into one of these clinics is literally taking her life into her own hands. You can’t trust what they tell you, you can’t even trust that you’re truly pregnant! And when you are all done, they send you out the back door so that the clients waiting in the waiting room for their turns, don’t see your puffy face from the tears you shed.

    I know this FIRST HAND, not rumor mill.

    If you’re ‘’out there’’ reading this and you know you are hurting from a prior abortion (not everyone is consciously aware of the impact abortion has had on them, subconsciously), there IS help for you. Find a crisis pregnancy center. If they don’t have post abortion counseling, then they know who does and where to refer you. CareNet is one such group which can be found on line for their 800 number. They will help to find a center near you. They aren’t everywhere so there could be other groups, but it’s a good place to start.

    I’m truly glad to see that there are politicians out there who found a loophole around things such as requiring good medical back up. This industry has been hurting women and young girls for a very long time, and it’s time for that to stop.

    I don’t know how you folks handled your sons and daughters as they grew up, or are growing up, but I talked openly with mine. I let them know that if they got pregnant, or got someone pregnant, I would probably be very angry because such a thing is GOING to have an impact on all lives and families concerned, but that I would do all that I could to protect that unborn life, that abortion is NOT the answer. No need for it, you have at least one set of parents who love you, and will stand with you.

    It made all the difference in the world. There are two children who are in this world who otherwise wouldn’t have been. And also, their offspring. My eldest dau. told me later that she was headed for an abortion (was being pushed by her boyfriend) but because I embraced her despite my anger, and she knew I was a tad bit upset...but I literally put my arms around her and reminded her that despite the mistake she’d made with this fella, she was loved and so was her baby...

    You know mom and dad, there’s nobody more precious to your kids than you!

    These kids get brainwashed early on and as they mature in their teen years, they are convinced that you forgot what it was like to fall in love, that you can’t relate to what they think and feel and it’s all hogwash! But they don’t know that, and it’s up to YOU to keep those lines of communication open, even if you don’t like what you hear, at least try to understand their points of view. It makes a huge world of difference.

    Don’t let your kids suffer infertility, or infections, or perforated uteruses, depression, inability to enter into intimate relationships, eating disorders, drug use, bulimia/anorexia, depression, grief, suicide, or death (abortion injuries) just because deception says that getting rid of the ‘’problem’’ is a ‘final solution’. It’s not. It’s a lie that catches up at some point. It may be 10 years down the road that it owns you, but at some point, it WILL, and a person might not even associate that past abortion with the disruptions in life they suffer.

    Morgana, I’m glad that you continue to post this kind of information. Blessings to you!

    If the purpose of the order was to educate police officers regarding islam, such an education can take place during an inservice at the station.

    For Christians and Jews alike, being present at the place of worship during services, IS to participate in those services. Unless the police are there in an official capacity..ie to keep the peace or make arrests, then the officer was right to protest.

    That poor woman. The pain is incredible, and risk of infection high. I hope and pray she heals well.

    Adding my prayers for a fast and uneventful recovery.

    Unfortunately, injuries are a hazard of the trade. It’s never a case of ‘’if’’ but always a case of ‘’when’’. I hope she bounces back mentally/emotionally without any leftovers.

    Gotta jump back on the horse!

    My biggest problem with GB was the enactment of the Patriot Act.

    Although it’s also obvious that the act had been penned long before it was implemented, the fact that it was gave license to the joker we have in office today.

  • Bad news: you probably have herpes and don't know it

    One of my children got “herpes” in her eye as a child, also. She had a terrible cold anyway, and then she was poked in the eye with a stick, which broke her cornea. Thru the process of crying as a result of the injury, she rubbed her eye and transferred the virus to her eye.

    It cost thousands of dollars to treat her over the years. One tiny vial of ‘viroptic’ cost $60 dollars at the time.

    Eventually, she needed a cornea transplant. If she breaks out in a coldsore infection, which she does when under severe stress, or over sun exposure, the treated eye will hurt.

    She uses L-lysine on a regular basis to ward off the cold sore attacks, and she swears by it.

    She got the coldsores from ME when she was only a year and a half old. I didn’t know that it was transferrable. Neither did my mom when she gave it to me as an infant.

    Some people are much more suseptible to it than others. My oldest child doesn’t have it and I kissed on her, too. The youngest two have it, but the middle one is the worst.

    As an adult, learning that it was contagious caused behavior changes for me. It’s rare for me to break out, but when I do, I avoid kissing others, and make sure my hands are very clean very often. I’ve found that antifungals help me a ton. I can use athletes foot type creams, or even vaginal yeast type creams like monistat, and it will kill a coldsore even before it’s fully broken out. They go away in a few days rather than a couple of weeks.

    I don’t know why it works, but it does. My doctor doesn’t know why it works, but it does. It relieves the itching immediately, relieves the pain, and it begins to heal.

    I tried the L-lysine and it does nothing for me. Guess it depends on a person’s system.

    It’s a huge relief NOT to have to worry about this beastly disease on the other end!

  • Love it or Hate it: Where Do You Come Down on Kale, Beets, Okra, Brussels Sprouts and Cilantro?

    I hate fresh cilantro. It’s nasty. But, I grow it in my garden because I do like it dried. The flavor changes once it’s dried, and then it becomes usable in some mexican dishes.

    Brussels sprouts...fresh only. Otherwise, they are very bitter to me, and I don’t like bitter.

    Beets..love them!

    Okra...depends on the cook. But I absolutely love the plant itself, and the flower it makes is beautiful!

    Funny, but the only thing I hear about regarding Jews and Russia is that Jews are now being treated better than ever there (i.e., better than the czars or commies) - so I doubt it’s the Russians behind the flyer, most likely it’s the NAZI-style people that took over the country.

    You mean they aren’t being gassed or roasted in ovens yet? /s

    Regardless of whose doing it, it’s wrong.

  • Judge rules flashing headlights is free speech in Oregon case

    Anytime I see headlights flashing, I slow down. I generally don’t mind the stated speed limits, but what I don’t know is whether or not there is danger of some sort, ahead.

    The warning could be police ahead, or icy roads, or large puddles, an oil slick, an accident...And I appreciate those warnings. They’ve saved my hide in situations where I could have been injured if I’d not been warned.

    Some of these cops have a stick up their butts with a fragile ego the size of Texas, and the toughness of a soap bubble. Gigantic egos tell me a LOT about people.

    Something like this may have made a difference, as well. It sure explains a lot. In any event, it’s really interesting.
