In the news -- Wed April 16

I know for a while that I have been sparse with blog posts and visiting blogs.  I hope this is the beginning of the easing of my pain.  I finally was able to see the rheumatologist after waiting five months and so far I know I have fibromyalgia.  Soon I will find out whether the blood tests showed anything else.  Now I am on an anti-inflammatory, a strong one, which seems to be helping out a bit.  Between that and nerve damage from endo my pain has been so extreme over the past year that I am praying I will be able to get the fibro under control.

Onto the news...

In an article in The Daily Mail Edward Lucas makes the case why he believes the Ukraine crisis could be the starting point for WWIII.  That historians will look back and mark this as the starting point for WWIII.  It could be.  I wonder if the turmoil in the Ukraine is being blown out of proportion.  Is Putin really so power hungry to continue on taking over more lands to reestablish a new U.S.S.R.  A priest said that Putin is the most dangerous man right now.  That could be debatable IMO.  Do you think that Putin is the most dangerous leader at the present time?

His target is our inability to work with allies in defence against common threats. The profoundly depressing fact is that the events of the past few months, as Russia has annexed the Crimea and ­suppressed opposition in Ukraine, have shown the West to be divided, humiliated and powerless in the face of these land grabs.We are soon to face a bleak choice. We can chose to surrender any responsibility we have to protect Ukraine and the Baltic states — almost certainly Putin’s next target — from further Russian incursion. Or we can mount a last-ditch attempt to deter Russia from furthering its imperial ambitions.

According to this article FBI counterterrorism agents are making special visits to gun shops in South Carolina  to look for "suspicious purchases" and anyone mentioning big government.  You know because according to the federal government anyone who doesn't sing the praises of big government is considered "dangerous."  People for limited common sense government just might be so "dangerous" to want to stop all the money Congress spends on frills, useless programs, and bribes used to pass bills.  Of all the gall we conservatives want to make sure taxpayer money is allocated responsibly.  How dare!  Ya know why would we want to reduce the budget deficit? Or reduce the debt?  This isn't surprising since conservatives, pro-lifers, and Veterans have been targets since being labeled "right-wing extremists" by the Dept. of Homeland Security in 09'.  The FBI agents in South Carolina have classified "paying with cash" and "purchasing long guns" as "suspicious purchases."  As you can see the federal government just likes to make our lives as much of a living hell as possible.  The Obama government trying to make something out of nothing, bothering average citizens who enjoy taking advantage of rights accorded to them by the second amendment.

Here is an ad from Matt Rosendale, a congressional candidate in Montana.

Bravo! Totally love the ad!!

During his general audience today in St. Peter's Square Pope Francis stopped in his open-air car to greet a group of fifth graders from Perugia.  The students gave the Pope a t-shirt.  Then Pope Francis asked if anyone wanted to take a ride with him and the students shouted "Me! Me! Me!"  Pope Francis picked two students to ride with him and they hopped aboard.  Cool!!

Try guaifenesin (Mucinex) for the fibro.

There's many more articles about the guaifenesin protocol. These will just get you started.

I did it back when it was harder than hell to get guaifenesin and it helped a lot.

Thank you very much Adrienne. Looked at one link and will look at the other tomorrow as well as research more on guaifenesin protocol. Wishing you and yours many blessings on this Holy Week.
