Evolution isn't working fast enough. More dumbasses need to be shot.

Cactus’ are getting smaller

I started my radiation treatments on my lungs today. The process itself is very simple, I just lay there for an hour while the machine rotates around me. The nice thing about this treatment though is that the side effects should be much milder.

Bowel movements are still painful, but not nearly as bad as the past few weeks. The cactus coming out seems smaller, and the pain goes away much faster. The fatigue is still a major factor though. I’m sleeping most of the day and not getting anything done around the house really. I haven’t been to work in over a month now, and probably won’t be back for another couple of weeks.

The scans have been scheduled for next month, and so have the appointments with my oncologists to go over them. The last doctor we see will be the surgeon, so will hopefully have an idea when surgery will take place by the end of next month.

The closer I get to surgery, the more apprehensive I get about it. Having a permanent colostomy bag will be a big lifestyle change. And other than the surgery I had to put my chemo port in, and the colonoscopy right before, I’ve never really had any surgeries.

But, new days are ahead. God has put me on this path for a reason, I’m trusting he will show me one day. It’s been quite rough on the family though. Not only am I stressed, but so is my wife and daughter. My wife especially is feeling overwhelmed. She has to go to work still along with taking care of me. She’s run down, overworked, and stressed out beyond belief. Please pray for her.

Birthing a Cactus

Today was my last day of radiation directed at my groin and the tumor that has been growing there. YAY!

Unfortunately they tell me the next two weeks will be the worst in terms of pain. Ugh!

For the last week and a half every bowel movement feels like a cactus coming out. And since I don’t feel like I have the sphincter control I once did, every urination has me sitting down to defecate as well. Birthing a cactus ten to twelve times a day really sucks.

But, one more part of this horrible journey is done. Next is radiation to my lungs. Mapping is Thursday, but I don’t know exactly when the treatments will start exactly.

One step at a time. It’s the only way to complete this journey. Oh, and cancer sucks donkey schlong!

*yawn* Another day, another idiot

Or rather, several idiots.

According to this article there are a bunch of words that non-black people shouldn’t be using because…

Flatten the Curve — Synova

Remember this: When we began with Covid 19 we were generally told that the goal was to slow the spread, to “flatten the curve”, in order to dribble out covid cases in bits and drabs to reduce the burden on hospitals and staff. Everyone was still going to eventually get it, just not all at…

CDC Seems To Tacitly Admit PCR Tests Can’t Differentiate COVID And Flu — Principia Scientific Intl.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) appears to have tacitly admitted that the near-universally used PCR tests may not be able to differentiate between COVID-19 and common influenza viruses.

CDC Seems To Tacitly Admit PCR Tests Can’t Differentiate COVID And Flu — Principia Scientific Intl.

 

Money Shot!

CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season.

Comment on Vaccines — disturbeddeputy

Found this comment on ‘Waking Up 1984’ Just saw this posted on Facebook! All very true! Out of all the vaccines I have taken in my life: Tetanus, rubella, measles, mumps, polio hep, TB;        Never before have I seen so much confusion over a vaccine that says I have to wear a […]

Good luck should you have any sort of bad reaction to the “vaccine”

The government gave the pharmaceutical companies immunity from adverse side effects, which appear to be greater than 15 years worth of all other vaccine adverse reactions, so if something happens to you they’re not responsible. And the federal government won’t take responsibility either. Your doctor and employer aren’t likely to be held responsible either, as they’re just administering something that was made by someone else.

Personally, I won’t be taking any of the experimental gene therapies nor vaccines that they have approved for emergency use.

  1. I’ve already had the actual disease and survived fine. I likely have better immunity than the talking heads are willing to admit.
  2. I’m not signing up to be anyone’s guinea pig or lab rat. In about five or ten years when they’ve had a chance to look at the long term effects and determined it’s safe I’ll think about it.
    1. The feds can’t be trusted in this. They have a long history of screwing people over for “science”, like the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.
    2. They’ve approved drugs in the past that were worse than the problems being treated. Think thalidomide for morning sickness resulting in severely deformed or dead babies. Or the one my wife took for weight loss, Fen Phen, which resulted in her having a permanent heart murmur.
  3. I’m currently in the midst of a Stage 4 cancer fight. I’m not gonna add any more stress to my already overtaxed immune system.

All the other crap they’re promoting, again, that has been shown not to be effective in limiting the transmission of Covid is nothing more than political gas lighting. We have several studies showing that this virus acts just like all other airborne viruses in that masking doesn’t change the transmission rate. Also, the “delta variant” appears to be so mild in most people they think they have a slight cold or seasonal allergy (because pollen and mold are out and about at the same time).

Having Your Cake, and Eating It, Too!

The US Women’s National Soccer Team filed a lawsuit alleging sex discrimination. The pay differential part of the suit was dismissed, but the Women have appealed.

 

I missed this a couple of months back when it came out (sue me, I was a little preoccupied with beginning my cancer fight) and just came across this video explaining the decision. In short, the women rejected the same offer that the Men’s National Team have, because they wanted different stuff. But having got what they wanted, now they want what the men have, too. They even got paid more than the men from their deal!

 

The more I find out about this team and its players, the less I like it. They don’t like the country they play for, feeling it’s racist, so why are they playing for it? Rapinoe seems like a real piece of work.  Nobody shows up to your games to hear your thoughts on politics. You’re entertainers, not preachers. If you fail to entertain us sufficiently, we quit showing up and you lose your jobs. At this point, I couldn’t care less if their whole league folded, again. They’re all sounding like whiny little spoiled children who didn’t get their ice cream when they asked for cake.

 

Fun With the Oversight Board -Or- better sign up for the newsletter Before I get perma-banned — Monster Hunter Nation

Would you guys do me a favor and share this, because I sure can’t. So I got banned from Facebook again, shocker. I believe this is my 7th or 8th 30 day ban. But this is the first time I got the option to appeal to the not at all Orwellian sounding “Oversight Board”. As…

A Willful Misunderstanding Of Historical Events

This article (There Goes Robert E. Lee) regarding Lee and the changing views of him over the past two centuries makes quite a few good points. And not just about Lee, but also about other people, whom would once have been described as <i>Great Men</i> but would most likely be called <i>old white racists</i> by the Progressives. People like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Winston Churchill.

Much of it comes down to the modern issue of looking at everything through the lens of recent cultural understandings, rather than looking at these men and the events they participated in within the context of their times. I fear that when future historians look back on the late 20th and early 21st century America they will judge us quite harshly for our willful misunderstandings of historical events and the men around them. I cannot blame them if they do.
