  1. "A New Jersey-based pharmaceutical company has issued a voluntary recall of its infant liquid ibuprofen. Tris Pharma, Inc says the recalled lots may contain higher concentrations of ibuprofen that could result in permanent renal or kidney damage among babies. A company statement read there is also a 'remote possibility' that infants may experience side effects including nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and diarrhea due to the increased potency." https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6467625/Infant-ibuprofen-recalled-Walmart-CVS-kidney-damage-fears.html "CVS sells the ibuprofen under the label CVS Health, Family Dollar sells it under Family Wellness and Walmart sells it under Equate. A statement from the company says the recalled products have the lot numbers 00717024A from CVS and 00717024A from Family Dollar, both with August 2019 expiration dates. The recalled products from Walmart have lot numbers 00717009A, 00717015A, 00717024A with February 2019, April 2019 and August 2019 expiration dates. The National Drug Code numbers on the recalled packages are 49035-125-23 for Walmart, 59779-925-23 for CVS and 55319-250-23 for Family Dollar."
  2. I agree that her position as an associate Justice will have to be pried from her cold, bare, formaldehyde-filled hands. And probably even then she won't let go...

    RBG hospitalized broken ribs

    As long as she feels fresh and they keep her feeling fresh, it's all good. Bestest freshest. Formaldehyde can do such work on her complexion.

    Politics VOTE!!!!

    I'm really glad that normalcy will return to TV ads--- like lawyer ads, GEICO, Progressive and prescription drugs that include death as a side effect. Feelin' better already.
  6. In the 3-episode preview shown last night where Rosita and somebody else are burying themselves in mud, did anyone notice the walkers saying "where are they?".

    Should we vote?

  8. There's a difference where the land is leased, like Guantanamo, for instance. We are just lessees there. There's probably a map somewhere detailing all US military bases and installations in this planet. Bunch of red dots in all the weirdest places. Most are commonly known. Be they aboveground, underground, or a mix. Remember, until fairly recently Area 51 was officially just a vast expanse of nothingness.

    I just don't get it

    Looking at the bright side, fortunately it was only one guy. Being in a group of those is an experience. There's a reason a group of parrots is called a "pandemonium" and not "soft elevator music".

    Should we vote?

    For questions like that I always consult a trusted sage. Should I go to the supermarket? What should I wear? Will this cream moisturize my nose? I've found that for questions like that it's best to leave it to an expert. After all, opinions are a dime a dozen. So to calculate how many per penny, and similar erudite matters, I rely on the trusted advice of ALF. He's never failed me. But with regards to voting, Thomas the Tank Engine is my go-to-guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V-LCZRyb3c

    Got threatened at work tonight

    Don't hope, know where the blind spots are and avoid them as much as possible. The folks that install them at times it seems like they are in cahoots with those that design the layout of emergency wards. Fwiw, I don't think that that guy remembers you by now. But don't let your guard down (no pun intended) .
  12. Did a little research and thought it over to be more specific. First. Any well-versed immigration lawyer knows to ask a prospective client if he/she/it was born inside a US military base. Not kidding. Second, regarding embassies, the land (territory) belongs to the host country. It is not US territory. Third but not least. In Tampa, Florida there is a piece of land (about 3'x4', 6'x8' ?) that is considered territory of Cuba. The only instance in the US where a foreign country has territorial sovereignty. So technically, a child of American citizens born there could claim dual citizenship. 🙂
  13. I can say this. A very well-esteemed foreign employee at a US military base somewhere out there, started giving birth. Nobody was going to throw her out, she gave birth at the base caringly assisted by US medical personnel. By all accounts, the child was considered a US citizen. Yes, cigars were distributed.
  14. But let us not stop there. Let's take it all the way to the ridiculous. What if Klaatu had given birth while he was here? Was Klaatu Jr. a US citizen? Or what about Sigourney Weaver's favorite alien? Coneheads' kids? The parents were French, weren't they? ETA: I'm sorry. Was that way too much xenophobic?
  15. Heard Judge Napolitano today. He explained that the exclusion only applies to foreign diplomats and heads of state. One problem with that rationale. I've never met a foreign diplomat or head of state that was a 1-year old. That would be tantamount of mixing mayo and ketchup. Sure, it's sweet and pleasant but it's neither mayo nor ketchup. The Congressional Record on the amendment clearly states that birthright does not apply to aliens, among others. So yes, to me the interpretation holds water. On the other hand, Executive Orders define what the policy of the US is regarding a particular matter. Example. "By this Executive Order it is declared that it is the policy of the US Government that situation X presents a clear and present danger and therefore the services of Cook Serve & Clean, Inc. are required to handle it". So go for it, Mr. President. Ultimately the USSC will interpret it. And thank you....
