the polling booth / Re: Did you get a flu shot?
« Last post by Jade Sinapu on Today at 11:39:09 am »
Yeah, supposedly, the flu shot is"dead" viruses used to teach the immune system. You get mild symptoms as your immune system reacts,  but then is gone.

Some flu shot nasal sprays are active flu virus. Some people get actual flu from that.

But,  hey,  it's optional. Many reasons to get,  many reasons not to get.

Besides the shot only helps if the strain selected is the one going around, and your immune system actually responded to the shot and got prepared.

I have skipped the shot some years,  and got it some years. So for me is spotty.

I just remember one bad year.....when we couldn't afford health care...

Only once did I get the full blown flu,  and I ran a fever of 103+ for 3 days,  all my joints were swelled,  and I was in extreme pain,  couldn't hold food or water down.  Had to use the restroom every 30 min.    Coughed a lot and sweated like crazy.  That happened when I was 13? Never been the same since.  Now I have arthritis everywhere.  Not sure if it is connected. I was out of commission for 2 weeks.

Ever since that I have tried to get the shots.  Ever since that year I have not had that happen to me again.
My 2 cents.
Will congress hold Saudi Arabia responsible for the death of the newsman in Turkey? Or
will they follow Trump and claim there isn't any proof to put sanctions on them? Trump
is trying to say he has a 109 billion dollare arms deal with them, but in reality it's not
even 15 billion dollars at this time. So his excuse for no sanctions is another lie.

It's under 3 weeks till the midterm election. Trump is doing rallys 4 or 5 times a week. Trump
loves to talk to his supporters. He doesn't want anyone at his rallys who don't support him. fHe
calls them private meetings. So if  someone speaks out against him he wants them thrown out.
He and many GOP congressmen and women try to avoid the voting public for fear they will
have to answer embarrassing questions.

People are already voting in states that allow early voting. Reports are early voting is heavy and
not just republicans. Democrats are out in big numbers as well. This may be a record vote for a
midterm election cycle.

I can get the flu once, or I can get the flu twice... I'll stick with once, thanks. It might be different if I lived with someone who was immuno-comprimised.

I heard reports there is a slick far right crowd trying to recruit young people in
colleges to their way of thinking. Instead of dressing and acting  like angry
thugs, they are showing up in suits and are clean cut. Speaking in young GOP
club meetings where they try to convince others that white is right. So watch
out for them if your in college. There shouldn't be any room for these types
in any political party.

President Trump said "It won't be my fault if the republicans loose the house."
Does this mean that Trump thinks the democrats will win back the house?
Well perhaps the democrats should try hard to prove the case by voting to
kick the GOP out. I am sure Trump would love to blame the democrats
when the economy slows down.

Though Trump claims the economy is doing well because he was elected, but he
hasn't done anything that really helps the economy nationwide. The tax cut was
to help his multi millionaire friends, not the economy. The stock market was
growing under Obama. Jobs were growing under Obama. So as usual the GOP
always takes credit for a improving economy that the democrats work hard to fix.

Each time the democrats take over they have to raise taxes to prevent runaway
deficits caused by GOP tax cuts. Then the GOP trys to win back control by saying
the democrats are raising taxes to help the lazy welfare bums. Instead of trying to
get people off of welfare the GOP turns around and cuts programs for the needy.
So we end up with people living in the streets where some are forced into crime
to survive.

The leader of the GOP controlled senate was asked why deficits are growing. HIs
answer was as expected. "It's due to social programs, like social security and
medicare." Programs the GOP want to destroy.  It was part of their plan when
they passed the big tax cuts to cause deficits so they would have an excuse to
cut social programs.

So if you depend on medicade, medicare, or social security kick the GOP out.
They want people to believe it's to save the economy. Instead it's to help the
millionaires get richer.
