From Huffington Post:

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

I don't have a mortgage payment for another month, all card payed down, and have a lot of money in the bank/am about to collect rent on top of that. I finally graduated from paycheck to paycheck for the first time in my life.
Just realized that as I was tallying things getting ready to buy a car.. My whole farking life I've struggled working service industry jobs with little stability, I know own the house with a solid career and a future.
Time to see the psychiatrist and get the brain problems figured out. The anxiety and depression should have faded and mostly did, but the anxiety is still physically debilitating at times.

What a weird time to be doing well. I feel shiatty talking about it.

ForlornHope: Taylor Mental: ForlornHope: Taylor Mental: ForlornHope: Taylor Mental: EighthDay: Taylor Mental: He lays on the bed groaning and drooling with his eyes barely open.

I would suggest ask the vet to run blood work based on these symptoms...

Thank you guys. I will ask for another visit and get Larry tested as well.

But there is no harm in giving a cat an IV hydration right? I don't understand why this wasn't done.

unless the cat is dehydrated, adding extra fluids can overtax other systems and add more stress.

Okay. I apologize for being such a worry wart. Thank you for being so patient.

I'm happy to answer any lab work questions that the vet doesn't clarify for you too.

No, you just said basically what the doc said. I'm going to follow your instructions and see how today goes. I have the a/d food, just need to use alternative means of getting it inside him.

Supposed to call vet back Thursday. I'm will ask about testing for Larry then.

I can take photos of how to force feed a cat it it will help and post, just let me know. You can probably find it on YouTube too.


When Larry was a few days old I bottle fed and burped him on my shoulder. Then he'd fall asleep and I'd gently set him in bed to repeat this with his two siblings. He hasn't had a bottle since going on solid foods of course, my has shoulder been his comfort zone daily. He's too heavy to stay up there long without it being painful to me.

But that's what they both need now, to be babied and nursed to relieve their stress.  And I have to learn how to do it out at the lake because for better or worse that's our home now.

So I went to both dollar stores and the grocery store here to look for an eye dropper or something to improvise delivery of this medicine for Taylor and food for both. The nearest thing thing they have is a turkey baster.

I got back to the motel, added a little water to the a/d, mixed it to the consistency of a thick gravy, heated it in the microwave, and put a dab in both their mouths. They turned their heads side to side and generally acted as if it were peanut butter.

Larry gagged a bit and I thought he might throw up. But he swallowed it. He's been laying there on the bed groaning for half an hour, and he audibly farted.

Taylor had heard me working on him and came out from under the bed because if any love is being handed out she always comes to get her share. After putting the a/d her mouth shut went and drank quite a bit of water out of the bowl. So she is definitely improving.

I couldn't find the baby food in chicken flavor. But I did get some chicken pate LF canned food, which they do like unless they get bored with it.

I'm going to keep this routine up with Larry all day until he'll eat on his own.

Also, when I asked the clerk about the eye dropper she said the farm and ranch store have a good selection of bottles and stuff just for this purpose. If I have to I will bottle feed Larry again. He will remember how we do it.

I will update in today's thread later. Thank you everyone :D

hi. Here, 40 yrs as vet tech and now hospital manager.


from your photo of Larry, the white cat correct? He looks ok, just stressed. Cats go mentally inward with change and stress, it can take months for them to come back out. For eating: I would use canned pate style food that you can add a bit of water to. Stir until it's a thick slurry. This is the easiest way to rehydrate a cat. You can also use chicken baby food. The tiny jars that say just chicken, possibly with gravy. Add a bit of water to that. Most cats love it.

Hi y'all!

Got my hair cut today (finally). Wish we'd get more of that rain that the forecasters keep teasing us with, but so far, very little has fallen. Unemployment still has "pending issues" with my account, so I'm "not authorized to receive payment", so I'll be calling them bright and squirrelly tomorrow morning to find out WTF.

Glad to hear that Taylor Mental and his feline companions are doing better.

markoff_cheney - Dude. Bring all the good news, bro. We need it. We need to hear it. Don't feel shiatty talking about how you're NOT doing shiatty anymore! If there's any place to celebrate your achievements with people who aren't going to slam you (sincerely) for it, it's here. I mean, sure, you'll get your balls busted a little, but you know that. And yeah, talk to the doc. Get that brain back in balance, whether it's through talk therapy or chemicals or a combination of the two. You're not alone in that battle, and there's a lot of us that know firsthand what a biatch it is.

As for the rest of the happenings in the world - fark the Lacquered Yam*, fark Pooty-Tooty-Pay-For-Shooty, fark Yertle, fark Susan Collins' "concern", and fark COVID-19.

Copy pasta from Taylor

Okay, we're back from the vet and once again ensconced in a motel room.  They gave me some special food for both kids and a prescription for Taylor. Dissolve one half a pill in water and administer orally until gone. I was supposed to get a syringe but didn't. Guess I'm going to hunt down an eye dropper.

Doctor said to heat this food before feeding. Just keep an eye on them and call back on Thursday for follow-up instructions.

Had Ray's driver take me there and back, plus a ride to the bank for cash, to the dollar store for a bag of cat litter and box, and by Church's for supper. He charged me  $10 for all that.

I ate, figured out the the remote and watching Katy. Gonna try to catch a few winks cuz I'm beat.

Oh yeah, Taylor ate some of the food and drank water. Larry is at least interested now but I don't see him taking it. We're both in bed and he's getting a belly rub.

Good morning Maddite's.

I slept well last night. Feel much better. But I'm not satisfied with the vet's assessment of Larry and Taylor. He looks like shiat. He hasn't touched his food and has only dabbled in the water dish. He lays on the bed groaning and drooling with his eyes barely open. He's not going to die if he misses a few meals, but he will die if he doesn't get some replacement of body fluids. And the doctor didn't give him any saline. She didn't even ask permission to test him. She appears to be only going on the fact that he's ambulatory and has okay gums.

And I'm having trouble without my PC because my phone is old, Fark mobile loses posts if I tab out and won't let me upload a pic by any method, even a link to cloud storage. I'm feeling frustrated again.

I would grant that I may be over sensitive to changes in these cats behavior due to environmental changes. But this is recent. They were doing okay, running around and playing for weeks after we got here. They ate and drank mostly as usual all the time.

I need ya'll's advice. This community has proven it's love of the fur babies as well as it's support of my venture here not just with empty rhetoric but with greenbacks. I trust you.

My plan is to email the clinic with these concerns and ask that they hydrate both cats. That's actually what the vet tech said they would do when I handed them off at the front door.

I'm feeling like Kira here, that I'm being gaslighted by medical professionals.

It's almost scary how many things that, if he had handled them with any kind of skill, intelligence, or ability, could have basically sealed the election for him by now.  He wouldn't have even had to cheat.

But every time he had an opening, an opportunity, a CHANCE to do the right thing, he has failed to do so.

Cornelis de Gyselaer: Cultured: JulieAzel626: From Huffington Post:

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

Where do I have to move to vote for Tammy Duckworth?

Funny, but the reason Chicago wasn't New York 2: Electric Sickaroo was that JB Pritzker saw what was happening and didn't waffle. There was some....discussion between him and Lori Lightfoot about schools, once Pritzker understood what the objection was, he worked with the city to make sure kids stayed fed.

We still had it rough, but nothing like New York City did, and it was mainly because someone told JB that every day would mean more dead, and he listened.

So, it was merely bad here.

For the record? Florida now has more cases than Illinois. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason this should be true. Florida had far more warning. They saw what happened here, and in NYC.

And yet...

Sarah Jessica Farker: Taylor Mental: She basically thinks there's nothing wrong with Larry, he's simply still adjusting to becoming an outdoor cat after nearly two months.

That sounds like great news to me.

When we got Gray, we did a shiat job introducing him to the household, and Princess ghosted us for weeks at a time for years afterwards. She's still Angry About The Kitten... but at least she hangs around now and will seek me out when I'm outside (well, maybe she likes the weed...)

My point being - it took YEARS for Princess to come back to anything resembling normal.

Larry's a heckin' chonker and he might know if he doesn't have so much fat on him, the hot weather might be a bit more bearable.

And it's exactly what I want to hear, that he's going to be all right, believe me.

When I listed the symptoms of dehydration I saw in Larry Dr. Avery said his gums were a little tacky but not that bad. And she did say "Larry's a big cat." I myself have even said we both need to lose some weight because we're certain at risk of diabetes with our previous environment and lifestyle. And that's exactly what's happening. I have lost most of the beer-belly I arrived here with and my face  is noticeably smaller. Larry has loose skin on his neck and abdomen that sways when he walks, I notice his neck skin is much looser.

I will discuss further in a separate post. Thank you for your perspective, and thank you for your donation. I know you guys sincerely care.

Developments in the Russian Appeasement Scandal, proxy murder chapter:
The talking points came out throughout the day yesterday, and they are:
1. NYT published leaked info to an ongoing investigation, destroying the investigation's momentum.
2. NYT didn't do enough legwork to establish all the facts, so they got stuff wrong.
3. President Trump wasn't informed, because the intelligence is still being verified.
4. NYT is purposefully publishing lies/hoax/disinfo in an attempt to make Trump look bad.

Alright, so looking at the above, it frankly is a salad shooter of bullshiat that not only doesn't jive with what we know so far but isn't internally consistent either.

If there's an ongoing investigation, how is it a hoax? If it's an ongoing investigation, why has it taken over a year to not yet be able to establish any veracity to its claim? If it's important enough to be over a year's worth of investigation, why had Trump not yet been informed? If the NYT's information was cultivated from illegal leaks, how is it solely their fault and not the leaker(s)' fault? How can the story be simultaneously a serious and ongoing investigation and a manufactured trifling? How can the investigation be damaged with the public's knowledge? Are international bad guys gonna now hide their tracks? Would good guys in the administration be unable to give details to intelligence now?

The administration's response comes off as righteous indignation when you consider their statements in a vacuum, but when you lay out everything together, bullshiat salad.

That sounds like great news to me.

When we got Gray, we did a shiat job introducing him to the household, and Princess ghosted us for weeks at a time for years afterwards. She's still Angry About The Kitten... but at least she hangs around now and will seek me out when I'm outside (well, maybe she likes the weed...)

My point being - it took YEARS for Princess to come back to anything resembling normal.

Larry's a heckin' chonker and he might know if he doesn't have so much fat on him, the hot weather might be a bit more bearable.

I've actually done a couple of PDQ Bach pieces with choirs in the past. It's surprisingly difficult to deliberately perform bad music.

Cultured: JulieAzel626: From Huffington Post:

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

badtrotsky013: ski9600: brachiopod: Cornelis de Gyselaer: Mrs Kees passed her Mega final!!!

Now all that is left is the Fed board exam

Great news! Congratulations!

I'm not sure what the Mega final is, but Yeah, good job!@

Also, I've been listening to a lot of Grateful Dead music for the last 3 years or so.  Back when I used to go to some concerts and all of that stuff beginning in the early '80's I wasn't able to have access to the repertoire or any of the history of the GD in books and stuff.  Anyway, sitting here today just listening to a concert from 1979 and they're playing Row Jimmie, after El Paso and I really don't see what all of this music has to do with the whole culture.
I guess they had long hair, and could do some big jams that were groovy but mostly it's traditional songs, blues, and country and western.

I think if I was a cop in the hall back then, I would have thought this stuff sounds pretty good!  Kinda shuffling my feet and trying not to draw attention.

I totally had a deadhead period. I didn't like them that much I was more into Dylan. My crew were all deadheads though and we had great times. It's kinda hard to like the dead when you don't like live recordings all that much.


I was listening to a concert from New Orleans in 1971 last week.  I think it was the night they got busted and the famous Truckin' is written about.
Anyway, they had a PA failure that couldn't be resolved quickly and came out and played acoustic to 3,500 people.  So cool, the show must go on!

Hey, I had to look at beetle pictures.

Which is bullsh*t. Real beetles don't look like that. You think that artist didn't scrub a bunch of feces off of that bug before he photographed it?

That "artist" is portraying beetles in an unrealistic light, causing other beetles to feel bad about themselves.

Thank you guys. I will ask for another visit and get Larry tested as well.

But there is no harm in giving a cat an IV hydration right? I don't understand why this wasn't done.

unless the cat is dehydrated, adding extra fluids can overtax other systems and add more stress.

Okay. I apologize for being such a worry wart. Thank you for being so patient.

I'm happy to answer any lab work questions that the vet doesn't clarify for you too.

No, you just said basically what the doc said. I'm going to follow your instructions and see how today goes. I have the a/d food, just need to use alternative means of getting it inside him.

Supposed to call vet back Thursday. I'm will ask about testing for Larry then.

hi. Here, 40 yrs as vet tech and now hospital manager.

from your photo of Larry, the white cat correct? He looks ok, just stressed. Cats go mentally inward with change and stress, it can take months for them to come back out. For eating: I would use canned pate style food that you can add a bit of water to. Stir until it's a thick slurry. This is the easiest way to rehydrate a cat. You can also use chicken baby food. The tiny jars that say just chicken, possibly with gravy. Add a bit of water to that. Most cats love it.

Then that is today's plan, go get those items and nurse him all day. Thank you hope!

you can also ask the vets office if they have a/d food. It is for recovery patients, but has a great consistency for hand feeding. Having a couple cans on hand my be handy.

That's exactly what they gave me. I was gonna post a pic of it, their invoice and Larry but can't.

I've figured out Trump's end game!  It came to me in the night:

He needs an honorable way out.  So ideally for him would be surviving some close call health event or assassination attempt, but being too ill to continue.  Nobody would fault him for having to withdraw after something like that.  And it would give him sympathy which might shield him from those nasty demoncrat prosecutors.

Now, surviving assassinations is a risky thing to go through and difficult to pull off, so that leaves him with a health scare.  Maybe a fake heart attack or brain tumor.  Cancer?  Everybody hates cancer!  Something that can't be verified from the outside.

If only he knew some unscrupulous doctors to help with his scheme.

I don't know. I need to get some sleep.

In floor speech on Russian bounties and Trump's knowledge of intel, Sen. Duckworth says "ignorance isn't exculpatory."

"'No one told me' is not an excuse for a commander in chief...it is in fact a confession of incompetence," she adds.

"He's had time to call Joe Biden names, however....not once in the past 72 hours has he found time to express outrage that American service members are dead," Duckworth says.

"Not responding here is a response in its own way."

Duckworth accuses Trump of making it "more likely that more spouses will be widowed and more moms and dads turned into gold star parents."

"How dare he still call himself the commander in chief?"

We've got Kamala and DiFi.  I *wish* we had Duckworth instead of DiFi, but whatever...

I've got Richard Burr and Thom Tillis. Trade ya!


And I have one of the July 4th Moscow traitors.  The other covered up the lies justifying the Iraq war and has no real residence in the state.

Face it: most of us have shiate Senators.

I figured that there's got to be a new band nerds in the group that would appreciate it. I've played that recording for a few musical friends and seen them lose it completely when the bagpipes kick in.

I've actually done a couple of PDQ Bach pieces with choirs in the past. It's surprisingly difficult to deliberately perform bad music.

It looks like Peter Schicklele has posted a lot of his earlier pieces on YouTube.

All music is worth posting. Except the Shags. Do not google the Shags. Do not go to you tube and listen to the Shags. I have warned you.

Google GG Allin instead

Make sure that you get a live show

/Narrator: um no

My musical crew played as GG Allin's back up band. Notice I did NOT mention him at any point.

I hope they had hazmat suits


They were called the Farking Shiat Biscuits. Of course that is the not how that was spelled. They were like The Butthole Surfers. Had the crazy ass front man like Gabby. I imagine they can be found on you tube with our without GG.

"A new strain of flu that has the potential to become pandemic has been identified in China by scientists. It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say." Researchers concerned it could mutate so that it can spread easily.

Squid_for_Brains: There is this perfectly WTF monument to the boll weevil in Alabama...
[Fark user image 425x705]
I can't say plopping an actual weevil on top of a neoclassical monument is a stunning artistic choice. In fact I laugh my ass off every time I see this thing.

I also laughed my ass off. Thank you for that.  :)

Significant reporting from @kwelkernbc @carolelee on "White power" RT Sunday:
The video remained on Trump's account bc WH officials couldn't reach him to ask him to delete it, two officials said. The president was at his golf club in VA and had put his phone down, officials said.

I'd recommend the "Unbegun Symphony" and "Quodlibet For Small Orchestra" which are a couple of Pr Schickele's "own" pieces.

James Carville thinks Trump is more likely to drop out rather than run for reelection and win.


How's he going to spin that?  He can't say it's his health, after all his lies about that.  He can't spin it as "I'm not popular", because of his idiot lies.  He can't spin it as "I got everything done", since there's a global pandemic, a recession, and nothing of his promises has been accomplished.

So unless he's going to run away saying "I'll go, but you can't prosecute me anywhere", it ain't happening.
