This from an RN on Twitter, seems like sound advice. Don’t know that I need it, but you never know and I will be seventy-six next week—albeit with no underlying illnesses:
“Things you should *actually* buy ahead of time (Erm, not sure what the obsession with toilet paper is?): Kleenex, Acetaminophen (Tylenol) in 350 mg tablets, Ibuprofen (Advil) in 200 mg tablets, Mucinex, Robitussin or DayQuil/NyQuil, whatever your cough medicine of choice is.”
And for self-treatment advice:
“For symptom management, use the meds I mentioned. For a fever over 101, alternate Tylenol and Advil so you’re taking a dose of one or the other every 3 hours. Use both cough suppressants and expectorants (most cough meds have both). Drink a ton, hydrate hydrate. Rest lots.”
No ER visit unless none of this works.

“To revise and extend the Gipper’s remarks, the DNC-MSM’s view of the economy can be summed up in a few short phrases: if it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it. And if people like it — ban it.”
The exact opposite of what Trump has done and is doing. And the economy roars and all boats are lifted.
Space X’s Elon Musk celebrated the Feb. 6. 2018, first flight of its Falcon Heavy rocket by launching a cherry-red Tesla roadster with a space-suited mannequin driver into solar orbit. Video low-orbit view here.
“The Tesla will likely make quite a few laps around the sun before its deep-space adventure comes to an end. An orbit-modeling study performed last year predicted that the space car will eventually slam into either Venus or Earth, probably within the next few tens of millions of years.”
When you’re filthy rich you can do anything, obviously. Even evade the environmental wackos who might have held this up. Too late, guys, the roadster is now about 226 million miles away. And probably a wreck.

“Democrats are now the party of the rich! Not all kinds of rich people, of course. Mostly so-called ‘creative class’ types in the coastal regions, in tech, finance, and entertainment. People who make things out of raw materials—not so much.”
Because those people have turned Republican. They’re why Trump won and may go on winning this year and in 2020. And may be joined by Trump-backed Tea Party types as the establishment GOP is defeated. Because the working class get out and vote, while the coastal “rich” often can’t be bothered.
