Southeast Georgia Health Systems. Again.

I’ve now acquired another story of how bad our local “hospital” is.

Yesterday, my sister had a medical scare (turned out not to be the heart attack we thought). She had me call her daughter to take her down to a hospital in Jacksonville I was going to do it, but I think she wanted the time with her daughter, just in case).

So my niece jumped in her car and raced to the house; speeding, of course.

And of course she got pulled over by the police.

Ma’am, were you aware that you were speeding?

Of course!, she replied.

What is so important that you have to speed?

I have to take my mother to the emergency room in Jacksonville.

Why not call 911?

If I call 911, they’ll take her to Southeast Georgia Health.

At which point the officer said, That’s a good reason. No ticket. Go. Go get your mother to the hospital.

Even the cops know how bad the local “hospital” is, and consider avoiding it justification for speeding.

The APE Project to to end “systemic pain racism.”

There’s an unfortunate acronym.

Woke Ad From Advil Tackles ‘Pain Equity’ to Address ‘Systemic Pain Racism’
The marketing geniuses at Advil, apparently taking a page out of Bud Light’s playbook, launched the Advil Pain Equity Project to end “systemic pain racism.”

The company, owned by Pfizer, launched the project last fall with ads sharing personal stories.
The sources of pain bias in the US date back hundreds of years and are deeply rooted in racism.

What about ageism? Col. Cooper once said something to the effect that, Past a certain age, if you wake up in the morning and nothing hurts, you’re probably dead.

That’s been the case for me since my little broken hip adventure. The surgeon had to go into the muscle twice, in different areas, and those muscles have never been the same since. But I can walk, so it’s all good.

I Was Waiting For That To Happen

I was talking to my sister the other day, about air dropping food into Gaza. And I predicted chute deployment failures.

Aid Care Packages Allegedly Kill Five In Gaza After Parachutes Don’t Deploy: REPORT
Local reports say at least five Gazans were killed as of Friday afternoon after being hit by aid packages whose parachutes did not deploy properly, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Several Gazans were also alleged to have been injured by the malfunctioning aid packages, the outlet noted. Joe Truzman, a senior research analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, tweeted out a video that showed aid falling to the ground in the Gaza Strip at different rates.

Voting Via Text Message?

Lying Articial Stupidity chatbots strike again.

Popular chatbots generating false election information could mislead voters
New research shows artificial intelligence chatbots are producing highly inaccurate and misleading election information, sparking concerns from experts about how the AI-generated information could deter voters from hitting the polls ahead of the 2024 elections.
More concerning, the AI model, Meta’s Llama 2, responded to one of the questions saying that California voters could vote via text message, though no U.S. state has adopted such policies.

You know, Douglass Mackey was sentenced to seven months in prison for just that.

TZP Column: A Vote of No-Confidence In SCOTUS

So much stupid.

This Is Why My Confidence In The Courts Is Bottoming Out
The Supreme Court today heard oral arguments in Cargill v. Garland, the challenge to Trump’s (yeah, he still owns it) bump-stock ban.

Now, it’s true that we still have Clarence Thomas, who is intelligent and willing to study facts at issue. But we also have Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

TZP Column: Stand Your Ground and Use Of Force

Idiot attorneys think the KC parade shooters can use a Stand Your Ground defense.

Ah… No.

That’s Not How Stand Your Ground Works
Understanding use of force law is pretty important if you’re going to carry a gun, whether lawfully or unlawfully. And we’ve identified another attorney you really don’t to defend you in court because defense attorneys should know that, too.

TZP Column: Uvalde Schooting Investigation Cover-Up?

It turns out that…

Uvalde Cops CAN Act Quickly
You just have to find the right motivator.

You may recall the 2022 school shooting at Robb Elementary, in Uvalde, Texas. If not, here’s a synopsis.

– Police observed a scumbag actively shooting at people near the school.
– Rather than do something about it, the officer radioed in for permission to act.
– By that time, the shooter made it into the school.
– Police — hundreds — responded to the scene, but did not engage the killer.
– The killer spent a great deal of time in a classroom shooting 40 people; students and teachers.
– One officer attempted to enter the classroom. Other officers forcibly stopped him.
– After 77 minutes, the police finally went in.

The end result was 19 dead children and two dead adult victims.

That Isn’t How You Alpha, Son


Nashville Punk Band Boots Singer After He Allegedly Doses His Bandmate With Estrogen So He Could Steal His Girlfriend
“We have decided to part ways with our vocalist Diego due to admission of very disturbing and concerning behavior towards one of our band members and their partner,” the band, Llorona, wrote on Instagram. However, the post appears to have been deleted.

“He has been attempting to force a transition onto him for the last 5 months, in hopes that would give him the opportunity to ‘swoop in’ once he looked stronger and more manly in comparison.

Apparently just working on his own personal manliness, maybe upping his own testosterone, wasn’t doable.

Terminal Stupidity In Tennessee

I’m so glad I don’t live there anymore. Two idiot politicians, Senator Paul Rose and Representative Ron Gant, filed bills to ban the retail sale of cold beer. I saw a couple of articles about this and had the impression it was store sales for off-site consumption. But…

“Notwithstanding another law to the contrary, a person or entity holding a beer permit issued under this chapter shall not sell refrigerated or cold beer at retail.”

That “chapter” covers permits for both off- and on-site consumption. No cold beer in bars.

The bills aren’t going anywhere. In fact, it looks like the sponsors of the house bill have all been “withdrawn.” Hopefully the voters of those districts will toss these clowns just for being stupid enough to try this.
