Piss Ants

I am always fascinated by Piss Ants.

They are so teeny weeny tiny itty bitty and you almost can't see them until they move.
BUT they can sniff out a sugar grain in no time.

Now how in the world can they do that?

Hydroxychloroquine is a prescription drug primarily prescribed to patients that have lupus
and/or arthritis. You may have heard the drug name 'Plaquenil'.

It's mostly an anti-inflammatory drug and a parasite killer/prevention.

Years ago, and even today actually, hydroxychloroquine is prescribed to those going into
areas such as jungles and swamps to prevent malaria. It is also used to treat malaria.

It does not prevent death in people with those diseases, necessarily. At least not those
with lupus.

My niece died of lupus several years ago. She battled it for years but succumbed to it
eventually. She was rather young.

My children's step mother died from lupus also, several years ago. She was in her mid

Lupus is a strange disease, to say the least. They still don't really know what causes it.
But hydroxychloroquine is used for lupus patients and arthritis patients mainly as an
anti inflammatory drug.

India does send hydroxychloroquine to the USA, by the way. As far as I am told, India
has agreed to supply some of their hydroxychloroquine to the USA.

The real problem may not be what you think. The real problem is the recent hoarding
of it. People that take it for lupus, arthritis, or whatever else, may find themselves in
short supply to no supply of it.

That IS the topic.

When the world become so populated that it can't feed it's children,
it's time to stop having so many children.

People do care for the poor and the poor children. There is many
organizations and most thrive on donations. BUT when there is a
huge population of children, it can be daunting to feed them all.

areas of the world.

My sister and I will brave Walmart this coming Tuesday.
Tuesdays 6am to 7am they only allow those 60+ to shop.

I think the older generation should stay home and in their yards
and ok to take walks along as they are very distant from others.

To save the economy, I think all young people under the age of
40, should be allowed to work if they want to. They should of
course wear protective clothing/masks but these folks could work
for the most part, rather safely IF safety is practiced. That is if
they are healthy.

I don't make sense out of your post splat44.

The USA does not send drugs to countries that don't want it.
In fact, a lot of our drugs come from other countries.
That's what 'trade' is about.

In regards to the link you posted, splat44, much of that is
true but it is very biased. President Trump has never said
it will prevent the virus and he has never said everyone
should use it. He said that it may help as a last resort for
some patients.

If you are laying on your death bed dying and with no hope,
wouldn't you try a drug that has the potential to save your
life? I am mighty sure most people would.

In addition, the drug has proven to save some lives. There
have been tests and thus far the tests are positive.

USA Farmers Throwing Away Food » Post #4

Fri Apr 10, 2020 10:44 in General Talk

Employment in America was at record highs since Trump came into office.
The economy was good. I think he will be re-elected but that is me doing
my own thinking.

The problem with food waste is the fact people are not working. Millions
out of work now. Much food is going to waste because companies are
shut down. Restaurants and fast food joints is huge business in the USA.

The farmers grow the food. The companies in the area buy the food.
The food is then trucked out to companies in the various States. The
companies in those States sell to local businesses thru-out the State.

So when restaurants no longer allow indoor dinning, you can see it all
going backwards. You can envision it like a video playing backwards.

That's one huge reason for it.

Then there is processing and manufacturing of foods. Some of these
places have shut down.

Fortunately my kids still have work right now.

My son works at a popular soft drink factory/plant. His wife works
in a school cafeteria. He is still working and even tho the schools
are closed, she works because they still make lunches for home
school delivery.

My daughter has worked at home as a medical transcriptionist for
years. She certainly won't lose her job. She's actually a manager.

My other daughter is a Speech Therapist for a school system.
Altho school is closed, she has online work and does home private
speech therapy.

We're all in the South where it has not had a huge outbreak.....yet.

I don't worry about my kids because they not only have good jobs,
they will always have house and food. This is due to their parents
and where they live.

You take the city, for example New York. It is a breeding ground
for the virus. These folks live ontop of each other. They are also
in the North so what they can grow is very limited and they don't
have the land to grow it. In addition, the average person there,
has no idea how to prepare food, canning food, nor freezing food.

In the South, many of us have large deep freezers. We know how
to freeze foods, can foods, and prepare foods for the long haul.

I have zucchini in my deep freezer that I prepared at the end of
last summer. I make zucchini bread thru-out the year and zucchini
pizza, and use in making soup.

Ask people in New York if they have zucchini in their freezer.

Just Sayin.

Well, the crawl space under the house is mighty large, actually.
It's also rather clean with the plastic type stuff over the ground.
I was thinking I could dig a deep hole and crawl inside, then pull
the plastic over me. TaDa! It wouldn't save me because I'd have
my dog with me and he barks at everything that moves. :(

I like the oatmeal that is loaded with sugar. Only the Walmart
brand of instant brown sugar maple oatmeal. Eat a bowl of that
and you can run around the house skipping.

HaHa. Well I am not near the ocean but I am not too far from a military base.
It's quiet here where I live and rarely do I even hear a helicopter fly over....when
I do it is usually one of those med vac choppers.

Where I lived before moving here, I lived very very near a military munitions plant.
There would be choppers flying in there day and night over my house and/or over
the fields near my house. There would be louse KABOOM'S that would shake the
entire house at times. That base was there for many many years. Then one day
it went KABOOM! super loud. Someone goofed and blew the whole place up.
Several died and they never rebuilt.

Where I live, the biggest threats are earthquake and tornadoes. I live on a fault line.

USA Farmers Throwing Away Food » Post #1

Wed Apr 08, 2020 19:48 in General Talk

Well it is pretty bad when you grow food and then throw it away.

Florida is a high producer of tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, that is ripe this time of
year. Many of those farmers in Florida, sell their produce to restaurants. However,
with the cover-19 virus, fine restaurants are closed and many of the fast food joints
are only getting drive thru traffic and not a lot of that.

So tons and tons of tomatoes, zucchini, lettuce, cabbage is dumped in piles and
then turned over into the ground.

HUGE Waste.

You know, people see the USA as a huge source for most everything and many if
not most people in the USA don't realize how expensive food could get. I've read
posts of people in the USA saying stuff like 'oh there is plenty of supplies, there
is lots of food, if people would stop hoarding, there is lots of food in the USA, we
won't starve here'.

They don't realize the cost it takes to grow food, the work involved, the costly
equipment, not to mention costs to get product to market.....IF there is a market.

I wouldn't call myself a hoarder but I have stocked up enough for myself and for
my dog. It may not be that food isn't there but the thing is, the food could become
very costly. People today, have not lived thru a depression in America. I hope it
doesn't get that bad but one should always be prepared as much as possible.

One can wrap toilet paper around the head also as a face mask , suspect that many have plenty of TP at home these days. :roll:

The way it is going, you'd get mugged, maybe even murdered, just for the
