Hello readers,

Below is the book people with Lyme Disease need to read for the straight facts from someone who lived it. If you have Lyme, think you do, or know somebody who might, please share this post so others can get a book about this epidemic.

 

Lyme and Punishment: Lost in the Labyrinth of Misdiagnosed Lyme Disease by [Carr, M.S.]

Lyme and Punishment: Lost in the Labyrinth of Misdiagnosed Lyme Disease centers on the story of a once-healthy man. This middle-aged professional had always been a physically tough, reticent man. An outdoorsman, he loves spending time in the dense fortress of pine and birch behind his family home. He’d grown up exploring these woods; in time, he’d lead his own sons on expeditions and teach them how to bushwhack hiking trails, how to find the strongest vine for swinging, how to stick together when night was coming in. Deer ran in herds through the trees; hawks swooped in on prey. Occasionally, a black bear stumbled down to forage food from the trash cans beside the his house. But for this strong, healthy man, the most dangerous creature in the woods turned out to be an insect no bigger than a grain of pepper.

He never noticed the bite of a blacklegged tick. He couldn’t, however, however, ignore the increasingly agonizing repercussions to his body. Dozens of medical specialists ran tests, scanned notes, and suggested the symptoms were “in his head.” None of these doctors ran the right test. Unaware, the man was up against what all misdiagnosed Lyme sufferers face: an out-dated medical protocol (as of this writing nearly set in stone) that treats each one as though he or she were Patient Zero in the Lyme disease epidemic.

This is a book about failure, both the patient’s and the medical establishment’s, raising the questions of whether either deserves compassion or, in the end, to be cured at all. All Lyme victims are random. All must have pondered these questions endlessly. The author certainly did. The present answer is emphatically negative.

This book describes the first hand experiences of one of the early sufferers from this modern day plague. It details the journey through misdiagnosis, and provides some hindsight on how the situation could have been handled better so people with Lyme Disease or who think they have it might identify and act accordingly. It lists some of the pitfalls of misdiagnosis in a very personal way.

The author’s mission, in describing his individual struggle and how he copes with his condition, is to provide a service for other wrongly diagnosed Lyme sufferers and to shed light on the current minimization by the medical establishment’s of the disease’s often wide-ranging symptomatology. Too many Americans will recognize themselves in this short account. Too many others will recognize family members and friends.

The Trilogy is still free as of this moment.

 

If Bernie Sanders wins California, I don’t expect Hillary to get nominated. It’s unbelievable she even made this a race. In the beginning, she had some press conferences and said a bunch of idiotic things, and now she’s gone dark for six months. Meanwhile, Trump gives a full-on-no-holds-barred press conference every five minutes and has yet to say anything truly horrific, in my view. So who is more capable of communication?

Hillary is saying Donald’s should not have the nuclear football. This was deceptive on her part, and this is provable. Contrary to popular belief, the President of the United States cannot wake up, grab the football, and nuke anybody he feels like nuking. There are safeguards. I believe they were put in because Hillary’s husband was deemed unreliable to have military control like that when he was the president and Hillary was his wife. That is all she was.  If she was co-president, why has she never answered for WACO? How about Libya?

Also, let’s talk about the myth that only “uneducated whites” support Trump. I know lots of white doctors and lawyers who all support Trump. I admit, if white people go and just a get a college degree and in the process get supersaturated with white guilt and political correctness, then yes, these mainly unthinking Liberal Arts majors in groupthink conformity will support whatever the corporate media says. They don’t know enough to challenge the prevailing paradigm and have been trained not to admit ignorance. White people with advanced degrees support Trump if they support the USA, but anyway, working class white people have a much better intuitive understanding of economics than Liberals born with silver spoons in their mouths. Bluntly, if you are entitled and feel somebody owes you a living, you are a likely Hillary voter.

Even technical majors with only college degrees might “believe” in the Global Warming religion. They have been trained to learn science as fact, and not to question the interpretation of statistics independently. Science is a method, not a fact. You apply the scientific method to facts. There are facts about the environment. However, if these facts are distorted by people who prey on the ignorance of others and all these facts result in is an epic money grab to fuel Marxist principles, isn’t this something a scientist should question? What if the Earth’s temperature cycle is fueled by sunspot activity? Do you seriously think the Sun’s cycles are something we could or should attempt to control somehow?

So, Trump’s questioning the Global warming Cult is not a valid reason not to vote for him.

Personally, it would be best for Hillary to win the Democrat nomination. She can’t win the overall election, and Bernie is building momentum. If this whole thing could be redone, Bernie would have won from the beginning. The press’s protection of her on Hillary’s email espionage ring will backfire. I am starting to think the FBI is genuinely pissed, and even if Obama blocks the prosecution, the FBI will leak this case out to screw up Hillary’s candidacy.  This would come from the top levels ( would have to) and probably involves several intelligence agencies aside from the FBI. Hillary was endangering lives and security by using a Yahoo account to send secrets, and in my view she did it intentionally for payment. So, for her to call Trump dangerous to national security is disingenuous.

Read below to see who pushed and lied us into Libya. This madwoman is a Democrat Neocon. Why do you think Bill Kristol hates Trump and is trying to elect Hillary?  Who is dangerous? Libya is a disaster, and that was Hillary’s pet project. She’s a total asshole.

 

“So three or four of  Obama’s advisers, all women, wanted war against Libya.

We’d like to think that women in power would somehow be less pro-war, but in the Obama administration at least it appears that the bellicosity is worst among Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power. All three are liberal interventionists, and all three seem to believe that when the United States exercises military force it has some profound, moral, life-saving character to it. Far from it. Unless President Obama’s better instincts manage to reign in his warrior women—and happily, there’s a chance of that—the United States could find itself engaged in open war in Libya, and soon. The troika pushed Obama into accepting the demands of neoconservatives, such as Joe Lieberman, John McCain and The Weekly Standard‘s Bill Kristol, along with various other liberal interventionists outside the administration, such as John Kerry. The rode roughshod over the realists in the administration.

The press is full of reports about how Clinton, Rice and Power pushed Obama to war. The New York Times, citing insiders, reports that Obama shifted to intervention in Libya only under pressure from the trio: “The change became possible, though, only after Mrs. Clinton joined Samantha Power, a senior aide at the National Security Council, and Susan Rice, Mr. Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations, who had been pressing the case for military action, according to senior administration officials speaking only on condition of anonymity…”

I keep hearing people say the Bill of Rights is archaic when it comes to The Second Amendment because when it was written people used muskets, so I thought I’d comment on the other rights in that same vein. So, I listed some of them below, and will add my thoughts parenthetically after them. I will make my corrections in red.

Article the third… Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

(P.J.:This archaic little right was devised before the era of social media, when Paul Revere types had to ride around on horseback to get messages to people to congregate at such and such a place and such and such a time. 

Nowadays, what with Twitter etc., flash mobs could literally be formed in minutes.

News back then was printed on printing presses, which were extremely inefficient. This supposed right to freedom of speech was granted before the age of efficient Internet news. You can see the problem here, can’t you?

Also, there weren’t as many people back then, so it was a different time altogether. Nowadays, there’s lots more people, so the right to assemble should be proportionately diluted. The more people, the less chance of peaceful assembly, so this one is an accident waiting to happen. I would suggest “Free Speech Zones”, but we already have those. Also, the right to assemble should be restricted in really important places, like The Supreme Court. Thankfully, this got done today. I for one can’t see what The Bill of Rights has to do with The Supreme Court anyway.

As for the establishment of religion thing, this is tricky. What is a religion anyway? The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods, is one definition. The idea of American Exceptionalism fits this bill. So, if you have a problem with this, you have a problem with America. This part of the supposed right was written when America was really small, hardly a superpower, and not prone to meddling in global events to control them on behalf of Divine Providence. Isn’t Zionism in the purest sense a religion? What would  the Senate and Congress say if asked if they support Zionism? Well, if you said Senate Resolution 498 you would have a partial answer. The list of their votes for Zionism seems endless. So, scratch that clause of the Bill. Huh, I guess you could just scratch the whole pesky Third Article. Moving on.
Article the fourth… A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Muskets back then were single shot and not very accurate, not like today when guns are better. Also, the advent of motorcycles and Twitter means you could have a well regulated and armed biker gang which could flash mob in minutes. So, obviously, this one has to go. I’ve seen lots of movies, and biker gangs make me nervous. This right was for a less efficient time. Dictators would not stand a chance against an armed biker gang. It simply isn’t sporting.

Article the fifth… No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

There are a lot more soldiers now then back then. They might need someplace to live at some point. This right was written when America didn’t have much of a standing army, but now it’s pretty big. So, this right too is outdated. When it was written, America wasn’t the Divine Policeman of the world. So, scratch this one too.

Article the sixth… The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

When this was written, computers and phones were not even invented, so the need for the government to do a warrant-less search of your emails and phone calls was not anticipated, of course.

Searching your car at  mandatory checkpoints or stop and frisk points is okay too. They didn’t have cars back then, and The Founding Fathers would technically have been considered terrorists if they had lost, so they can’t really judge how we fight terrorism.

Secure in your person was written in an age when the drug war was not so critical. So, warrant-less searches and seizures at airports are also fine, since I can guarantee you airplanes did not exist in 1776. Drugs did, but chemistry was worse, so the good ones hadn’t even been invented. So much for Article the Sixth…
Article the seventh… No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

This one is negotiable, since there are a lot more public dangers now than there used to be when this was written. Let’s just say war requires a declaration, but “public danger” can cover a lot of ground. I can work with this one, as long as the media is in control. Since I took care of that above in the Third Article, I’m fairly cool with this one…for now.

Article the eighth… In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

The trouble with this one is people watch all these TV shows about CSI Miami and all of that, and they all think their case is special because of this. Let me break it to you gently–if you have a public defender, you aren’t special. Also, an impartial jury kind of implies juries can decide law, not just guilt. People are really dumb now compared to 1776, so scratch Article 8.

Article the ninth… In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

People are dumber now, so I don’t trust juries. In 1776, a juror would have been a hard working farmer type. Not now. So, scratch this one too.

Article the tenth… Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

People back in 1776 were not ruthless enough because people were nicer back then. Times have changed. Break out the water boards and prison rape to make people flip to state’s evidence. Also, if somebody in a Mercedes gets pulled over and has their effects searched in a warrantless search and a joint turns up, they obviously bought their Mercedes and their house with the proceeds of pot dealing, so the state should be able to seize the car at the very least, and also the house and bank account. Fighting the case will drain their money anyway, unless they get a public defender.

Mercedes cars were not even invented in 1776. If they had been, I’m sure Thomas Jefferson would have been seizing them left and right. They are really cool cars.

Article the eleventh… The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

If all these people have the right to free speech and to bear arms, they might criticize and resist the doctrines of American Exceptionalism, political correctness, and Global Warming. None of this stuff was invented in 1776. I think Karl Marx invented them later on. So 11 has to go.

Article the twelfth… The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The problem here is new stuff gets invented all the time, by default this will result in new powers getting reserved to the people and states and will result in a weakening of the Federal Government and an inevitable weakening in the state prescribed religion of American Exceptionalism and Divine Global Policemanism. In 1776, new stuff didn’t get invented as fast because technology was less. So it look like 12 hasn’t stood up to Time very well either.

So, that pretty much wraps it up for The Bill of Rights. It is unfortunate The Founders were so limited in their imagination. If only they had been able to anticipate every little technological innovation, they would have been embarrassed to write all of that irrelevant, outdated gibberish.

If you read this, thanks for playing. If you like, you can get two free zombie apocalyptic adventure books this weekend, Zombie World Order and Dead To Rights. Check Saturday morning, they should be free by then.

update-whoops, looks like I set the books to be free on Aug 30 and 31, so Sunday and Monday. Sorry ’bout that.

On Memorial day, the complete Zombie World Order Trilogy will be free on Amazon.

I re-formatted it based on the Cyberwitch’s instructions (see links). I have a better organized and hyper-linked table of contents.

Without getting into it. I amy lose the rights to promote for free om Amazon at some point, so if you want to read well crafted Zombie apocalyptic fiction for free, tomorrow would be a good day to add this book to your electronic library.

Although sometimes my giveaways do pretty well, I am a little hurt at the tepid response to the QUICK AND THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD giveaway. Let me note I have corrected the heck out of the book since I first put it up in early May. Fixing it after the fact has become an unavoidable part of my process for reasons I have gotten into already on this blog.

 

ZOMBIE WORLD ORDER TRILOGY

QUICK AND THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD (SMASHWORDS)

QUICK AND THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD (AMAZON)

 

My vampire romance book will be free on Amazon this weekend.

I re-edited it for some formatting and auto correct errors.

It’s about 40,000 words. I edited it quite a bit.

With both my books, the underlying idea is horror myths have a basis in the human experience. We have all known vampires and zombies, they were just not literally vampires and zombies.

If you download it and you are on Goodreads, add it here:

QUICK AND THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD

On January 23, 1911,  Fitzhugh Coyle Goldsborough shot David Graham Philips six times in Gramercy  Park, Manhattan, outside the Princeton Club. Then Goldsborough shot himself in the head. Both men died from the injuries.

Philips features prominently in the book mentioned in my last post, THE MUCKRAKERS. He started out as a reporter, went to editor, wrote a novel, quit and became an investigative journalist after he could live off the royalties from his book.

He wrote a series of really inflammatory articles about corruption in the U.S. Senate. Before him, state legislators would select senators for a six year term. Phillis was responsible for the 17th Amendment of The Constitution, which forced senators to be duly elected, not chosen. Phillips basically unseated 20 out of the 24 senators he despised most.

A literary badass. He could even be forgiven for his bow tie. After all the enemies he must have made, he wound up getting shot by someone who supposedly thought Phillips had lampooned his family in one of his books. Below I pasted three photos. One of Phillips, the second the movie portrayal of his literary character who offended Goldsborough, and last, the murderer himself.

Phillips was murdered pre-Internet, and pre-Zombie World Order blog, so I am going to question his death as being quite suspicious. I owe Phillips this for trying to make the world a better place.

To start, let’s look at John Hinckley Junior, the man who supposedly shot Ronald Reagan for Jodi Foster. Reagan was coming out of a speech to The Teamsters when the puny Hinckley managed to break through the Secret Service. This also resulted in a long standing gun control meme when one of Reagan’s people got shot pretty badly as well.

Who had the motive for killing Reagan? George Herbert Bush, CIA spook, failed and resentful presidential candidate, and change agent for The New World Order. Also, a family friend of the Hinckleys, if you want to believe everything you read. I’ve had my fill of the Bush Crime syndicate. I do not believe Hinckley shot Reagan because of a movie called Taxi driver, though I enjoyed the film immensely.

I am reminded of another book about an assassin, I HEAR YOU PAINT HOUSES. This is a confessional style book from one of the world’s great mob hitmen. Basically, he said if someone was too big to kill by anyone sane, they would find a nut. Joe Colombo was the example. What black guy in his right mind would shoot the top guy at Italian Pride Day in he middle of Central Park and think he would get away with it?  Some nut.

Jared Loughner. Some nut who killed a federal judge. Why? Oh, he was a nut. There is an endless list of nuts killing famous and hard to hit people.

There are some occult implications to Goldsborough. He was born on 1331 K Street Northwest, Washington, D.C, on 13th Street. K being next to M Street, another 13. He was fond of forming pentagrams from his own name, and if Garbo’s character in the picture below indicates anything, Phillips portrayed her as having some occult influences. Satanic bloodline much?

If this shooting had happened today, there would have been a lot of people wondering about it. True, there are simply crazy people, but what if these people were being guided? Could someone have been feeding Goldsborough’s paranoia  about Phillips? Phillips changed the Constitution. He stepped on some toes. Maybe History should take a pause and have another look-see before we throw him to the nuts?
