Melanie Trump wore this jacket on the way to see her husband's baby detention centers in Texas, switched jackets while visiting, and wore this jacket again when she got of the plane, in DC. BTW, it was 105F in McAllen, TX today.

Of course, Fatass said she was referring to the media. Yeah...right. The whole Trump clan are effing sociopaths!!!! mad

The FDA has approved the first medical marijuana-based drug, which destroys the DEA's justification for keeping marijuana a Class I drug.

FDA Approves Medical Marijuana Drug

This is a CBD compound given to children with two different epilepsy diseases to reduce seizures. I think we are beginning to see the end of marijuana prohibition here. Next I think will be Sativex, approved in 21 countries to reduce muscle spasms in MS and pain in cancer patients. This is 50:50 THC and CBD.

I bought Sam from hemp-oil dog treats for his epilepsy. He has grand mal seizures. I really haven't noticed difference.

Two years ago I stopped giving him Frontline. I didn't want to believe it, and his neurologist assured me there was no connection, but Sam would have a seizure within 72hrs of me giving him a monthly dosage.

I stopped giving him any flea medication for over a year, the last time he got a dosage was in Portland in July 2016, then he got a bad infestation in January 2018, and his doctor here in the Puget Sound, put him on Revolution. Revolution is for pregnant dogs and puppies. He seems to tolerate that a lot better. His seizures are pretty infrequent since I took him off of Frontline.

Every human and probably every dog responds differently to some drugs. There are alternatives to medicating your dog for fleas. You can do environmental controls like vacuuming every day that wipe out fleas pretty quickly. We are just lazy, so we do it the easy way.

Speaking about unconventional medicine, lots of articles about Lyme Disease and chronic post-treatment Lyme Disease in the news. It seems about 5% of those treated with standard antibiotic treatment for Lyme Disease still have it. It may be impossible to find it in their blood and they may show no Lyme antibodies, but if you give uninfected ticks their blood, the ticks develop active Lyme bacteria in their guts! The standard tests for Lyme have a huge false negative and false positive result, so they are pretty much worthless. I really think the tick infection test is probably more accurate.

The Lyme bacteria screws with the immune system, which explains all the autoimmune diseases it mimics and why the tests tend to be so bad. But far worse, even victims identified by the CDC-approved test are assumed by the medical establishment to have psychosomatic symptoms, and medical boards discipline doctors who try to treat victims with post-antibiotic symptoms.

My wife is probably one of them. She was working as a Veterinary Pathologist in Indiana many years back and may have been exposed. She had an antibody screen years ago and had most but not all of the right antibodies for Lyme. Treated with doxycycline for a month. Even years later, she still has symptoms that have been diagnosed as undifferentiated connective tissue disease, which is a title they use when they can't figure it out. Also a Celiac-like abdominal syndrome, but again not really Celiac disease.

You know what she does for it? Quinine water and wormwood tablets. These pre-antibiotic treatments for malaria actually work pretty well for whatever she has. (Note that somebody got the Nobel Prize for Medicine last year for showing wormwood (artemisia) works against malaria.)

Last night's Real Time was the most depressing show I've ever seen. It all started when Michael Moore came on.
