The relevance of South Carolina State Representative Pat Henegan to the national election

she's a Democrat.

i see all kinds of yard signs for Pat running SR 38 from Rockingham, NC down to Myrtle Beach.  i see very few signs for her opponent or Republicans of any kind, aside from Trump.

and i see a grand total of ONE ( 1 ) Hillary for president sign, and that's a monster 4'x6' sign at a highway intersection.

this is a state which is supposed to be leaning Trump.

and Democrats who are INVESTED in voting for a State legislator ... don't give a damn about about the presidential race?

Hillary is Low Energy and Confused.

i note, with some amusement, that Pat could pass the Paper Bag Test.

Gene Simmons: Racing Traitor or Race of Traitors?

So, back on the Juice question, way back in 2006 Gene Simmons managed to buffalo Tony George and IRL into signing a marketing deal.

Now you have to remember that, being of the Tribe, Simmons has never once in his life expressed any interest in racing.  Not even back in the 70s at the height of his rock n roll days when racing was really crazy and bad ass.

What did IndyCar get for their money?

Well, they got this half assed theme song

And they got Simmons showing up at all of the races and doing his patented ... 'marketing' with the media.

How did that marketing go?

Well, back before SpeedTV became FoxSports1, Dave Despain had a Sunday night show called Wind Tunnel which was a powerhouse in motorsports broadcasting, covering a broad range of racing disciplines.  Simmons did an interview.  In what should have been the middle of the exchange, Gene made a reference to how "filled with American drivers" IndyCar was in relation to CART ... and cited Dan Wheldon as an example of this.

Slight problem:
"Daniel Clive Wheldon was born in Emberton, near Olney, Buckinghamshire, England"

 Dave Despain made the 'error' of pointing out to Simmons that Wheldon wasn't a US citizen ... something anyone would have noticed simply by watching any interview Wheldon had done and noting his accent.

Simmons immediately went off in a rant, accusing Despain ( who hadn't mentioned anything about nationality or 'American' ) of prejudice and haranguing him for Dave's supposed lack  of tolerance for others.

Needless to say, the interview came to a quick close after Simmons had embarrassed the hell out of his IRL clients.

Now, obviously, Gene had been engaging in Lying, Projection and Doubling Down that Vox Day has noted.  It's what you regularly see with deceitful personalities.

I haven't been able to find video of this exchange but you can see a forum thread about this exchange here:

Verdict:  Race of Traitors who betrayed Racing

Leftist Women presidents, what are ya gonna do with them?

well, evidently you impeach them.
On 3 December 2015, impeachment proceedings against Rousseff were officially accepted by the Chamber of Deputies.[5] On 12 May 2016, the Senate of Brazil temporarily suspended President Rousseff's powers and duties for up to six months or until the Senate reaches a verdict: to remove her from office if found guilty or to acquit her from the crimes charged.[6] Vice President Michel Temer assumed her powers and duties as Acting President of Brazil during the suspension.[7][8] On 31 August 2016, the Senate voted 61–20 in favor of impeachment, finding Rousseff guilty of breaking budgetary laws and removing her from office.

Gout Magic

when you get old, cantankerous, obstreperous and decrepit ( like me ), you sometimes start getting some chronic problems.

Gout is one of these issues.  and man oh man, gout is a bitch.

the key issue to remember about gout is that Uric Acid is dropping out of the bloodstream and crystallizing in the joint.  it's the equivalent to having shards of glass in your joint.  yeee-owtch.

so, what can we do about this?  well, you can take a lot of expensive drugs which are very not good for your digestive system over the long term
you can mix up a little of bob's Gout Magic.

what is 'Gout Magic' you ask?

well, you go to the grocery store and get yourself
1 ( one ) fresh pineapple  ( ~$4 at my local store )
1 ( bag ) fresh Navel oranges ( $3.50 )

get yourself on home.

slice off a cross section of the pineapple about 1" to 1 1/2", rind it, core it and cube up the pineapple flesh.  put the pineapple in a ziplock bag and toss it in the fridge.

get yourself one of them there Navel oranges and skin it and section it up.  toss the rest of the Navels in the fridge.

mix the pineapple and orange together ... and eat about half of it.  cover and refrigerate so you can eat the rest the next day.

you can do this every day or you can do it once a week, although the pineapple will start to go off after about a week, so you may as well eat 'Gout Magic' four days a week, just to get your money's worth out of it.

so, what are we doing here, what is the actually efficacious property?  well, first off, the oranges aren't really doing anything.  sure, it's a lot of vitamin C and various other goodies but it's mostly there for the flavor, to relieve the monotony ( you ever notice how many 'o's you need to use to spell that word?  man, i get bored just thinking about it ) of so much pineapple in your diet.  you can mix in anything else you feel like ( peach, blueberries, grapes, etc ), whatever trips your trigger.

protip:  eating whole oranges is great if you have a cold or a lot of phlegm in your throat.  the acidic + high vita-C applied directly to the tissues helps but probably the best effect is simply the long, ropey threads of the orange fruit ... it tends to grab the phlegm and drag it down into your stomach.  you'll notice that simply clearing the phlegm from your throat will produce a great deal of relief.

no, the real thing going on here is in the pineapple and it's a little enzyme called Bromelain.

Bromelain mimics digestive enzymes.  Bromelain mimics digestive enzymes whilst in your bloodstream.  now, back to the active mechanism of Gout, remember that?  it's excess Uric Acid in the bloodstream dropping out of solution and crystallizing.  so what does Bromelain do?  it DISSOLVES existing Uric crystals and helps prevent crystal formation altogether.

now, if you're having a serious Gout attack, sure, go see a doctor and get some heavy duty meds.  the problem with most painkilling remedies ( alcohol, aspirin, tylenol, etc ) is that while they may provide temporary relief they actually tend to increase the load of suspended minerals in the blood stream + acting as a diuretic, thus driving the formation of even MORE Uric Acid crystals.  you can see how this would be a bad thing.

if having a serious attack, give your feet hot epsom salt baths and drink lots of water.  when possible, keep your feet warm, drink lots of water and stay well away from ingesting alcohol and caffeine or sugar.

i suspect that Bromelain may also help with various stones ( kidney / gall bladder / etc ) but i've never been prone to those so i don't know for sure.

PS - two further warnings
1 - do NOT eat a whole bunch of pineapple the first time you try this, it will burn like hell the next day when you take a dump.  it's not something you develop a tolerance for either.  the Bromelain is actually digesting your butt, that's why it hurts.

2 - use FRESH pineapple.  enzymes are proteins and can be damaged by heat.  therefore, canned pineapple ( which is heat treated )  or any other type of heat prepped fruit is going to be drastically less efficacious  than the equivalent amount of fresh fruit.
"Enzyme structures unfold (denature) when heated or exposed to chemical denaturants and this disruption to the structure typically causes a loss of activity."

it is for this same reason that most Castor Oils have very little affect nowadays.  if you want a good Castor oil, it MUST be Cold Pressed with no / little chemical processing.

The Real Hollywood Blacklist

was of non-Communists before the HUAC hearings ever took place.

notice the name John Wayne mentions at the end of this video, Morrie Ryskind:

who was Morrie Ryskind?  a Jew, a Pulitzer Prize winning screenwriter, a composer, a card carrying member of the Socialist Party of America.  what happened to Morrie when he left the Left?  it's obvious enough, he has no, NONE, ZERO Hollywood credits after 1945.  the HUAC Hollywood hearings didn't happen until 1947.

now, Morrie didn't die until 1985.  so, for 40 years we're supposed to believe that no work could be found in Hollywood for an award winning, money making Jew?

and we're supposed to feel sorry for Communists who were supporting the murder of tens of millions of people through their support of Mao and Stalin ... because they had to drive cabs for a couple of years?

Black Knighting: 13 Amendment Constitutional slavery edition

so, if it should ever happen that you find yourself a victim of some sort of felony, i suggest that when it comes to the sentencing phase of the trial that you request that the judge honor your 13th Amendment Right to hold the miscreant as a slave for what would have been the duration of his prison term.

present this as a method to help reduce over crowding in the prisons.
"Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

when the inevitable sputtering and blathering ensues, note that the Constitutional prohibition against "cruel and unusual punishment" was contained in the 8th Amendment and that, thus, the Constitution does not consider Slavery to be either cruel or unusual.
"Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. "

The real Time Travel problem that Skiffy has never resolved?


"What", you ask, "how can Space be a problem for time travel?"

it's pretty straightforward.

the Earth rotates about it's axis.  rotational velocity at the equator is over 1,000mph.  of course, this rotational velocity will decrease as you approach the poles, but even if you were time traveling from a position at one of the poles,

... there are larger issues.

 the Earth orbits the sun at approximately 66,600mph.  if you want to travel one day into the past, you have to also go 1,598,400 miles back along Earth's orbit around the Sun.

... there are larger issues.

speaking of the Sun, it's also moving ( ruh roh ).  well gosh bob, how fast is the Sun moving?  Wikipedia says the Sun is moving ~220 kilometers ... per second.  which is 792,000 kph.  which, for us hick 'Muricans, is a little under a half million miles per hour at 492,126 mph.  if you want to travel one year into the past, you have to go 4,311,023,760 miles back along the Sun's orbit around the core of the Milky Way. did i mention the Milky Way?  oh crap,

... there are larger issues.

  the Milky Way has a velocity relative to the Cosmic Microwave Background of 552 kms.  which is 1,987,200 kph or 1,234,789 mph.   if you travel ten years into the past, the Milky Way has traveled  108,167,516,400 miles.  if you go back 600 years you are more than a Light Year away from where we are today.  yes, that's right, Columbus sailed the ocean blue 524 years ago and almost a Light Year from where we are today.

suddenly, time travel back to the age of the dinosaurs, billions of years ago, seems kind of absurd.  given that this would also involve translating yourself across millions of Light Years of space, orienting yourself to the Milky Way, to the orbital position of the Sun, to the orbital position of the Earth AND referenced properly to the angular position relative to the Earth's core.

otherwise, you'll be sucking the vacuum of space.  which doesn't really give you much opportunity to play with dinosaurs.

obviously, the same Spacial problem applies to any time travel to the future as well.  which points up the absurdity of HG Wells, "The Time Machine".

ps - there is, of course, one way to solve most of these problems:
rehabilitate the Ptolemiac Model
