“Konstantin Kisin tells a powerful story about his Grandmother, Soviet forced labour camps and Joseph Stalin which serves as a warning about the cost of not questioning authority.”

I agree…And just for the record…so much of the same corruption and inhumanity, has existed in U.S. politics for most of our history…

…Let’s not wear rose colored glasses.

However insane it may initially seem…there exists justification, in creating a counterbalance.

Thing is…this was just empowering one monster, to take on another monster.

Socialist structures are not the problem…

…Predators being in charge, holding power…That Is The Problem!

“Daily oral dosing of vitamin D3 using 5000 TO 50,000 international units a day in long-term hospitalized patients:

Insights from a seven year experience

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30611908/

Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio

Vitamin D3 is a hormone produced in the skin,

in amounts estimated up to 25,000 international units (IUs) a day,

by the action of UVB radiation

Vitamin D deficiency is common,

lack of adequate sun exposure to the skin,

vitamin D is present in very few food sources.

Deficiency is strongly linked to increased risk for a multitude of diseases,

several of which have historically been shown to improve dramatically with either adequate UVB exposure to the skin,

or to oral supplementation with vitamin D.

These diseases include

Asthma, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, rickets and tuberculosis.

All patients in our hospital have been routinely screened on admission for vitamin D deficiency since July 2011

Offered supplementation to either correct or prevent deficiency

We have admitted over 4,700 patients

(vast majority agreed to supplementation)

5000 or 10,000 IUs/day.

125 micrograms or 250 micrograms

Due to disease concerns,

A few agreed to 20,000 to 50,000 IUs/day.

500 micrograms to 1, 250 micrograms (1.25mg)

There have been no cases of vitamin D3 induced hypercalcemia,

or any adverse events attributable to vitamin D3

Three patients with psoriasis

Marked clinical improvement using 20,000 to 50,000 IUs/day

Analysis of 418 inpatients on D3

Long enough to develop 25OHD3 blood levels less than 74.4 ng/ml,

showed a mean 25OHD3 level of 118.9 ng/ml

(range from 74.4 to 384.8 ng/ml)

Average serum calcium level in the vit D group of 418

9.6  mg/dl

Range of 8.6 to 10.7

(Normal 8.5 to 10.5)

Average serum calcium level in the non vit D group of 777

Mean 25OHD3 level of 27.1 ng/ml

9.5 mg/dl

Range of 8.4 to 10.7

Parathyroid hormone levels

A hormone released in response to low calcium levels

D3 users, 24.2 pg/ml

Non D3 users, 30.2 pg/ml

In summary

Long-term supplementation with vitamin D3 in doses ranging from 5000 to 50,000 IUs/day appears to be safe.

Conclusion

Daily oral intake of vitamin D3 ranging from 5000 IU/d to 60,000 IU/d for several years was well tolerated and safe,

in both our patients and staff.

The mean 25OHD blood levels in our patients appear to take around 12 months to plateau on 5000 IU/d and 10,000 IU/d.

The average 25OHD values

Patients taking 10,000 IU/d at 12 months = 96 ng/ml

Then retested at 16 months = 97 ng/ml

Currently considered upper limit of normal, 100 ng/ml

Elon Musk SHUTS DOWN Interviewer Over ‘CONSPIRACY THEORIES’ On Twitter: ‘They’re TRUE’…

“Briahna Joy Gray and Robby Soave discuss Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s recent interview with CNBC. #weapons #nationalism”

What I know about Elons’ “free speech liberation on twitter”…is that it looks to be nothing more than re-introducing a whole lot of right wing voices [including the crazy ones] back onto twitter…

…It does not appear to be concerned with the actual Principles of Free Speech, in practice.

…I await any opportunity to retract this statement…but twitter has failed to give me anything to go on, thus far.

BREAKING: Prince Harry & Meghan In ‘NEAR CATASTROPHIC’ Car Chase With Paparazzi…

“Briahna Joy Gray and Robby Soave react to news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were involved in a car chase. #RoyalFamily #HarryAndMeghan”

…Oh, the “woes and catastrophies” of the wealthy and powerful…


Pictures Of Harry And Meghan “Near Catastrophic” Car Chase Removed From UK Websites:

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were involved in a “near catastrophic” car chase while being followed by paparazzi in New York, the couple’s spokesperson said.

They were in the city on Tuesday with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, for an event at which the duchess received an award.

The three of them are said to have been subjected to a “relentless pursuit” involving half a dozen blacked out vehicles.

In a statement on Wednesday, a spokesperson for Harry and Meghan said: “Last night, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Ms Ragland were involved in a near catastrophic car chase at the hands of a ring of highly aggressive paparazzi.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD officers.

“While being a public figure comes with a level of interest from the public, it should never come at the cost of anyone’s safety.

“Dissemination of these images, given the ways in which they were obtained, encourages a highly intrusive practice that is dangerous to all in involved.”

It is understood that Harry, Meghan and Ms Ragland were staying at a private residence and did not want to compromise the security of their friend’s home.”

Of course…it’s not fair Harry was born into this scrutiny and expectations…Nor is it fair he was handed a life of luxury, just for being born…Nor is it fair…nor is it fair…nor is it fair…

Meghan sought wealth and being a public personality as a career…

When so much of the world is struggling just to survive…I just…

…This “news” is vapid hyperbolic nonsense…

A few wealthy, powerful people with charmed lives got annoyed, and over dramatized the situation…

…That is the true summary here…It’s trash tabloid content.

Greatest Wealth Transfer In HISTORY Saw Rich Get RICHER Over Pandemic: Analysis…

Date: May 17, 2023

01) LINK


“Briahna Joy Gray and Liz Wolfe discuss the transfer of wealth the United States is reportedly facing. #transportation #electricity”

I’m not a foaming at the mouth anti capitalist…

…However…This is precisely why it is so insane, to allow a sliver of the population to “own” the bulk of national wealth…and it should never be allowed to happen.

“Wealth Flight”…”Capital Flight”…whatever you want to call it…They should not even have the ability to do this in the first place.

People amassing that amount of capital off of a population…and then just leaving with it…taking it to an entirely different country?…Screw those fucking assholes.

Also, this allows them to politically throw their own weight around, buy politicians and dictate national policy…Again…Screw Those Fucking AssHoles…

A massive chunk of “their” wealth [probably 80% or more] needs to be seized, and redistributed among the population.

We need a serious leveling of the field, across the population of citizens…We can start by abolishing billionaires…Nobody has a right to that money and lifestyle…Nobody personally earned that kind of money and lifestyle.

Personal wealth should be capped at probably something like 10 million dollars…maybe 5 million dollars…and that money should not be allowed to make investment income for the individual, once it hits its cap…Hence, giving some sort of incentive to keep working and stay productive.

…Of course…before anyone gets bothered by that…this takes into account that there would be robust social services in place [paid for by the surplus of business profits], which even the millionaires could partake in.

All people should have clothing, shelter, food, water and health care, at the very least…That so many people are being deprived of these basic human needs, is a crime against the population.

So much of this is happening, because the national wealth has been consolidated and denied to the overwhelming majority of individuals.

Again…I’m not a foaming at the mouth anti-capitalist…But I quit being a capitalist long ago, because I recognize what unrestrained capitalism has done to us…It has fucked us up, and probably destroyed us as a nation.

You want to strike out on your own with your own, little business?…Wonderful!…More power to you!…I support individuals filling niches, and finding meaning in their work…what you might call “micro capitalism”…

…But I have no stomach left, for rampant capitalism steamrolling everything and everyone.

If this is what we are going to end up with…then Fuck Capitalism!
