When I change orientation from sitting to standing or lying down, it sets off a period of hyperventilation, followed by a hot flash or chill. I cannot tell which. When I sit up,the legs start to swell. Lying down reduces the pressure but, if I have eaten or drunk anything within a couple of hours, lying down triggers a cough and the likely hood of gastric upset. Oh, and I almost forgot, the hyperventilation is associated with a prodigeous production of mucus and phlegm.

All of this is supposed to be a consequence of a leaking heart valve and cardiac disfunction.

Nice vs. Obnoxious

Nice does not get media coverage; obnoxious does. Where does the addiction to attention come from? That it is never satisfied is just a characteristic of addiction. Addiction to abstractions is doubly impervious because abstractions never run out.

The red chest

I went into the guest room to adjust the spread. Turned off the fan. and sat down and cried over having to take leave of the red chest of drawers I salvaged from an abandoned house and refinished some fifty+ years ago. I am not attached to things I acquired; I am attached to things I refashioned with my own hands. I don’t think the children count; always just let them be themselves.

I discovered it is again hard to lift my right leg.

The voting machines

I did not finish my thought the other day. What if, the electronic systems having proved impervious to tampering and manipulation led to the conclusion that their credibility would have to be destroyed? Ergo the relentless attacks on Dominion and Smartmatic. Bad lawyering prevented them from anticipating defamation suits.

The problem withfreespeech is that it loses its immunity when documented.

The U.S. is the Land of Illusion

Start with the designation “AMERICE” which excludes four fifths of the American Continents from consideration.

Then consider “land of the free and home of the brave” where free is a synonym for theft and braves are typically dead.

The Constitution is a minimalist outline for a commercial enterprise. Now, commerce may be more amenable to uncoerced organization than religion, but the official exclusion of religion is interpreted as a privilege and the use of force. What is promised is not kept.

Ammendments reinforce the pattern of illusion, representing prohibitions as rights. Fake News was not invented yesterday.

What did Twain say? “It is best to be shifty in a new country.” Well, the shiftiness continues and swells as the country grows old. And the result is widespread distress.

About those chromosomes

5-alpha-reductase deficiency is a real (albeit rare) condition, in which young women grow a penis during puberty.
Androgen insensitivity syndrome is an intersex condition in which a person who is genetically male is resistant to male hormones . As a result, the person has some or all of the physical traits of a woman, but the genetic makeup of a man.
The SRY gene is involved in male sexual development—without it fetuses can be genetically male (with XY chromosomes) but have a female body. The same is true in females (with XX chromosomes), who can develop a male body without the SRY gene.
XXY males are sterile, with small testes—while women with only one X chromosome (a condition called Turner syndrome) are infertile and don’t go through puberty. Males with two X chromosomes (called Klinefelter syndrome) are taller, with a higher risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis.

Corporations are subsidiaries of the state

Regardless of whether a corporation is organized to make a monetary profit or as acharitable enterprise, by virtue of the state authoriIng and certifying its creation, a corporation is a subsidiary of the state (public) and ipso facto subject to legislative direction and restriction. A corporate body may be recognized as a person, but it is an artificial person, rather than “natural born.”
