Don't let the jokes and posting style fool ya....this man is intelligent, experienced and level headed. He likes to have fun and joke around. He's in my 'brother' group of members here.

I'll bet that tommy is alot better off for his relationship with weed, physically, mentally, spiritually then if he had not used it most of his life. Economically, it was his life.

IDK - Tommy was to be the voice of the head hyena in the cartoon The Lion King. Tommy had taken his family to Disney Land but "SECURITY" made him turn his T-shirt supporting marijuana inside out while in the park.
He dropped the part and has never done a Disney Production since.

I don't care about Disney just the serious amount of coin Tommy lost out on.

Quoted by Colonel Walter E. Kurtz in Apocalypse Now (One of my all-time favorite movies and based upon the book Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad, one of my favorite books).

I try to live my life by the words of Rudyard Kipling's "IF":

...If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: .....

... If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:...

... If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son! "

When these fail blow their shit away. Take as many of "THEM" out before "THEY" take you out. JMO / YMMV
As for the Notorious RBG and her imminent demise:

Do we have spreadsheet or list with the predictions?

I want to get in on the action, but I want my own square in the pool.

darn we should have done this sooner....well no time like the present. What was that called? I think it was called the death pool and it was a betting thig by sumnabitches that could afford it.

Yes I remember reading about it and it was supposed to be all hush hush BUT there were glimpse's like a fart in a crowd, you knew it was happening but just could not put your finger on it conspiracy stuff. Red Switch? hell I guess I forgot. I know it was red something though.

Maybe not out the woods so quickly with this last treatment.

"Siegel, a doctor and professor of medicine who provides medical analysis for Fox, noted that the type of radiation Ginsburg received recently is a new and especially intense form of treatment. "It's having some very promising results, though it has more side-effects," he said.

Ginsburg likely received that type of radiation because an operation was too difficult, Siegel said."


Sounds more like last ditch trial effort. There most likely won't be a second option for treatment if this doesn't work since if radiation doesn't work you have cooked things and will have run out of options unlike surgery or chemo etc.

Are you thinking about that Clint Eastwood movie, ‘The Dead Pool?’ That was a good one. Everybody was running around with a list of people they thought had the most chance of ending up dead first, or dead that year. Johnny Squares ended up dead in his rock and roll trailer and Dirty Harry was sent to the scene, to figure it all out. Love Dirty Harry movies. Got the whole set.

Wouldnt it be ironic if an unanticipated consequence of Trump getting "Right to Try" passed was that RBG lived another 10 years?

This "pool" we we talking about is it "when" she dies or when they "tell us" she dies?

Face it they can hide it for a few months to help position themselves long after she is room temp and still making "decisions" on the bench.

It was sometning I used to read @ abeldanger which was why one needed a decoder ring. I think it was caked red switch. hell never ever should have smoked pot.....stupid short term vs long term memory. Yeah I can't remember the red thing because it is in the memory banks of short term but I sure pulled the dead pool shit out of the long term, yeah and I kind of remember the movie also.

Right to try anything you'd like, to simply stay alive...new medical procedures, new drugs, etc...
Gotcha.

They passed a law that allows people with terminal conditions to try experimental medicines/treatments by simply signing a waiver that indemnifies the doctors/pharmaceutical companies from any liabilities that may result from said "treatments"...

In layman's terms - they made it legal for Big Pharma to use humans as guinea pigs in their experiments. Some of those will work out well...others not so much...

Better yet, she is a .gov employee and they can bill her insurer whatever they want!

Walt is calling Christmas, so I'll take the over.
As for the Notorious RBG and her imminent demise:

Yeah, I'll take a square also.

Also I watched a interview, (PBS I think) with Thomas and his wife back before the 2016 elections. He stated that he wanted to retire and do some traveling w/his wife. Then Scalia was murdered and he held off. Then another, forgot his name that submitted his retirement. Now Thomas is in a box. He will no doubt stay through 2020, but after that who knows.

For sure there will be some black mud flying when RGB dies. What a mess this country is in.

About RGB's radiation treatment. The device is called the Cybre-Knife. It can pinpoint rads right to the cancer, no scatter, but it does destroy the tissue it needs to penetrate to the cancer.

But cancer has a life of its own. I underwent that treatment for a spot of cancer on my left lung a couple of years ago. I can't be operated on because of many reasons, so Cybre-Knife was the only option. The follow up looked real good and I didn't start having problems until last month. A CT Scan showed a large mass in the lower portion on the left lung. Rather than going through the process again, (It wasn't very much fun) the Doc at my request in treating me with a super antibiotic that will probably kill me anyway. But this was the road I chose. I have no fear or anxiety about dying. My Lord created me, and he can press the recall button anytime he chooses.

is it not true that the precedent has now been set, and if they keep rbg on ice until after nov, they then are in the last year of a presidency and the choice waits until after the election?

sure it is not carved in stone, but nonetheless, surely we can all hear the wailing prior to that time

Agreed, I thought that was a really dumb move by McConnell. Payback is a bitch.

Short memory...

Dont forget they tried to pack the court by offing Scalia so Obama could get Garland in his seat...McConnell blocked that from happening...
