   Suejeanne posted on Main Page The Lobby  with being reminded again about what good buddies the Bushes and the Clintons are - and how Bill Clinton is the "brother from another mother" - hyuk, hyuk, hyuk - I wish they would all go on the Jerry Springer show and do a paternity test and settle it once and for all.

   Suejeanne posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hi, fellow L-Dotters on "The Connection" -
I hope that someone knows of the e-mail address for writing to RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel -

My mother received a phone call recently from the RNC - they told her that she had pledged to send $100.00 which she did not do, because she has been upset with the way the RNC has failed to pull everyone together to help President Trump.

Then during that phone conversation, she was switched over to someone else when she asked to speak to a supervisor and she thought they had gotten that corrected (while she also told them why ).

Today, my mother received a letter from Chairwoman McDaniel - asking about that "pledge" again of $100 - that, plus the content of the letter itself, talking about how we have to win in 2018 and what the Democrats are doing:

"The Democrats have the liberal media and liberal professors in every college campus in America adding new voters to their party consistently throughout the year. We have to make sure we keep up the pace with them to ultimately win future elections such as the 2018 midterms!"

Mrs. McDaniel, WE won the 2016 election in a big way - across the board - no thanks to your uncle, Mitt and a myriad of other so-called Republicans and conservatives -

My mother wanted to write a letter to let them know she is not sending $100.00 - first of all, she told that assistant she wasn't going to do so, then she gets this stupid letter - so hell can freeze over before she will ever send another dollar to the RNC -

the RNC is useless . . . for example, why do they let John McCain continue to run for Senate? Why don't they ever have anyone to replace him? What has he ever done for Arizona? Big military hero but he is apparently unashamed that the Phoenix VA is one of the worst.

Don't tell us about what all the liberal professors do to help the Democratic Party - at least they stick together, Republicans run around and hide like a bunch of scared little bunny rabbits.

   Allsogreat  I certainly hope she sends them nothing. The RNC / Republicans are the do nothing party. Our elitist Republicans are ineffectual because they want to be ineffectual. Even though they now control our Government, they're still allowing the Dumacrats to run things. Almost insisting on it. Why, because the Dumacrats are doing exactly what the Republican want.....and they get no blame for the mess we're in. They, the Republicans, want us dependent on Big Brother for every thing just as the Dumacrats do. Congress and a few of the late presidents have so fragmented our society, that now, we cannot amass a dissenting group large enough to oppose them.

   Namma  I just received one of those letters. I took a marker, crossed off donation sums, and wrote all over the letter on how the RNC did not really support Trump and they don't now. Also said they should get rid of McCain Ryan and McConnell and all the other rhinos. When they do I will support the RNC. Until then my donation goes directly to the candidate of my choice. The best part is I put my letter into the pre-paid envelope and put it into the mail. Don't know if anyone of importance sees the reply, but the RNC has to pay for the letter. I have my family doing the same thing. I also never pledge anything over the phone. They say I did I know they are lying. It's maddening when they do under handed things like this.

   Suejeanne posted on Health & Diet  B-150 for Bursitis
Black Cherry Juice for Gout
Apple Cider Vinegar for middle-of-the-night leg cramps
Bob's Red Mill Ground Flax Seed for personal issues (or non-issues, as the case may be )

Hi, everyone - just thought I would give some health tips in case you have any of these things plaguing you and aren't able to get in to the doctor right away -

B-150 complex for bursitis

They have these at GNC and other vitamin stores (I go to GNC and stock up when they have BOGO )

you want to be sure to get B-150's - not B-50's, not even B-100's (though they might help in a pinch ) B-150's are a B-complex tablet that have the entire spectrum of the B-vitamins. Take ONE in the morning and ONE at night (like 6 am and 6 pm ) - drink lots of water all day and when you take the tablet - do this for four days and stop for a few days - resume and do again for 4 days if the bursitis didn't go away in the first round (it might even go away on the third day of the first round, but complete the round ). Don't overdo and take more than 1 twice a day

Bursitis means irritation of the bursa - it's part of the sympathetic nervous system - you might feel it in your shoulder blade area or anywhere along the path of the bursa, down to your forearm, perhaps it bothers you more when you do some little kind of movement or it really bothers you when you are in really cold air-conditioning - you find yourself squeezing your arm, trying to make the ache go away - maybe you haven't found out from your doctor yet that it is bursitis and when it hits you for the first time, you feel like you could have ten different dreadful awful things going on. Then you find out it is bursitis which is no big deal in itself but over time, it isn't good for your stomach and overall health to be taking a bunch of aspirin or Feldene - I know for myself that nothing really took the pain down and I did not want to get into pain pills -

maybe the first time you get it, you left the window open or somehow got a chill on your back or shoulder the night before, walking the dog - maybe when you were younger, you pulled something in that same arm/shoulder and when the weather turns cold, and there you are - so, get some nice hot packs too, wear a sweater and maybe try the B-150's

Black Cherry Juice for Gout

RW Knudsen makes "Just Black Cherry Juice" which was pretty good, available at most grocery stores, Whole Foods, Sprouts - but there is also Langer's, I believe - and perhaps others -

Of course you need to go to your doctor and get the proper medicine to treat the gout but if you just woke up this morning

   Suejeanne  with the unmistakable symptoms of a gout flareup and you can't get into the doctor's office until tomorrow - or later - have someone run to the store and get some black cherry juice for you - it seems to take the horrible flaring pain out - then you need to go on a proper diet where you watch out for foods which cause the purines to build up in your system, then those crystals form and get jammed up in places like your big toe - women can get gout as well, after menopause -

Apple Cider Vinegar for middle-of-the-night leg cramps - about a tablespoon in a big glass of water

Bob's Red Mill Ground Flax Seed - I just get the less expensive one - $2.49 as opposed to about $5.49 for organic - about a 1/4 cup added to a half cup of Fiber One every morning at the same time (with milk added or water if you don't have any milk on hand ) - gradually, things will be jake - much better IMHO than Miralax or other things like that which I have seen my loved ones/friends try - such things seem to be a snare and a delusion because eventually they have some other effect and there you are back to square one again, or worse.

These are just my tips, given in the spirit of Merry Christmas - I am not a medical doctor and I did not stay at a Holiday Inn Express - just wanted to share things that might make things better for someone out there.

   Suejeanne  about the B-150's for bursitis - just wanted to emphasize that if the bursitis goes away in the first round, then don't do a second round. You might have another flare-up down the road someday and you will have the B-150's on hand (you were out shoveling snow when you were supposed to let the kid down the street do it )

   Suejeanne posted on Main Page The Lobby  Saw on the Drudge Report that Google Maps has "Trump Tower" as "Dump Tower" - so, went on Google Maps and entered the correction (if you have not done that before, find the location you want to correct on the map, click it and then enter the name/location ("Trump Tower" ) then down below, indicate what the mistake was ("Dump Tower" ). If anyone else would like to do that as well, go to Google Maps for Midtown Manhattan - Trump Tower is on 5th between 56th and 57th Streets )

   Suejeanne posted on Main Page The Lobby  Affordable Care Act 2.0

This is what I would like to see: an implementation of the ideas Donald Trump shared about how to improve our nation’s health insurance system by making it more competitive, such as “removing the lines around the states” –

and agreeing all around, that the basic idea of making health more affordable is essentially what many people originally hoped Obamacare would be, that it would be not be a negative drain on the economy, actually making things worse overall –

let's put away the past approach and have no more of "we will have to pass it before we can read it" - that is not acceptable! But let's waste no time or energy in drawing lines in the sand against each other, let's just remove those lines around the states and do the other things that can be done to make the original concept workable

let’s not throw out the baby with the bath water, let’s rework the implementation -
the idea of making health care more affordable is beautiful and in our free-market system when competition is healthy, too, we all benefit –

it is a matter of HOW you implement it and doing it on the basis of a free market system is what will benefit more people than a socialistic approach –

let it be unencumbered by a socialistic agenda – socialistic is retrograde – free market is what is truly “progressive”, if we could use that word in a new way -

repeal the way the Affordable Care Act is implemented

replace it with Affordable Care Act 2.0 which implements the free market approach and makes it easier for groups/employers to offer health care

restore the original idea on which everyone can agree on – that people in catastrophic situations need help and that there has to a way to help those who cannot help themselves –

and pre-existing conditions need to be handled, too –

“Christian charity” is from the heart, merciful, for all who need it - helping those who cannot help themselves, putting yourself in the other guy’s shoes, bread cast upon waters . . . “there but for the grace of God go I”

and of course, make sure our veterans are NEVER put in harm’s way when they return home and have to deal with the VA

keep it simple

it doesn’t have to be known anymore as Obamacare nor does it have to be called Trumpcare –

just – simply – Affordable Care!

   Kono  If you can figure out how to pull off more universal coverage without eliminating individual liberty, I'm listening. But the moment you make others responsible for paying my health insurance premiums, you also give them the right to tell me I can't drink a soda for lunch. Or the right to tell me I have to make achieving 120/80 BP a primary focus in my life. And I might have different priorities in what "pursuit of happiness" means to me.

   Suejeanne posted on Nostalgia  I went on here to ask out loud about bayberry candles - I wonder if anyone knows of a catalog nowadays where one can order these - my Mother used to always have them at Christmas time - a dear friend used to always send them to her - where can one buy real, made in America, bayberry candles - the pillar type (shorter pillar, about 5 to 6 inches high, about 3 inches in diameter ) - not in a glass jar, not anything except that beautiful shade of green we remember - thank you in advance!

   Suejeanne posted on Main Page The Lobby  Now the "Deseret News" has come out with an editorial, strongly suggesting that Donald J. Trump should resign his candidacy - notwithstanding that millions of Americans voted for him in the primaries above all the other candidates -

so, basically, if Donald J. Trump is not our Republican candidate and November 8th is approaching pretty quickly, is the "Deseret News" all right with Hillary Clinton being elected?

When the "Deseret News" was founded way back in 1850, they made "Truth and Liberty" their motto -

well, I think they have forgotten their wonderful motto and have lost their way -

because with Hillary, we already know that truth is non-existent and if she becomes President, liberty will go away as well -

   Balogreene  My Representative has said she will write in Pence. As if that would take the vote away from Hillary. Interestingly, Most of her Facebook replies are withdrawing support. She took over from an unabashed conservative (Frank Wolfe ), who would have stood with Trump, to beat Hillary.

   Suejeanne posted on Main Page The Lobby  just saw that NBC said they are not going to fire Billy Bush

why not?

wasn't he even worse in that he was engaged in sexual harassment of TWO co-workers?

what is the workplace policy of NBC regarding sexual harassment?

I feel pretty sure that many of my fellow L-Dotters who have had jobs in the years since the Anita Hill accusations have attended "workshops" in their workplaces on this issue - they have a film, maybe two, showing various examples -

you get a workbook or handbook on the company policy - you sign a form confirming that you have been given all of the information and know the guidelines/penalties for not adhering to the policy -

so, we have seen all the upheaval at Fox News over Roger Ailes - what in the world is going on over at NBC that they allow Billy Bush to emerge unscathed?
