Of course the cynic in me predicts a judge ruling that we need to import refugees from the region with hemorrhagic fever because Trump is racist.

It's funny. I completely agree with the NAACP that climate change is a racist thing.

It's the opposite to their statement in that the Climate Con Cult is implicitly racist because they don't want the third world, mostly not white people, to ever have what they have. Cheap power, good medicine, transportation, a chance to better yourself. All are denied by policies of "sustainability free range organic carbon neutral moral superiority". " Can't let those darkies have electricity" is the never spoken but basic attitude of the Con.

After the 3rd or 4th year in a row that I saw California fires on the headlines, I wondered when they were going to start running controlled burns.
Most military bases do them every year.

I bought a house on a couple acres, with a little pasture. The first summer, the old man next door told me my un-mowed pasture was a fire hazard. I felt like an idiot for never thinking of it that way. Luckily I can mow it and don't have to do controlled burns.

What the Greenies often fail to understand, is that the natives in America practiced forest management etc. for centuries before the Vikings landed in Canada.

This despite the worship of Native American Culture, in near total ignorance of it.

The East Coast forests were like parks, with open trails under a nice canopy. That is NOT how those forests grow. It's the hard work of generations, clearing brush for firewood, and setting controlled burns to eliminate the brambles and encourage food plants. You leave Eastern Forest alone, and it's impassible bracken and wild roses, and all manner of thorny, inedible, choking plants.

The West coast is much the same. The Redwood forests were carefully cultivated, a near Rivendell artificial environment, again, hard work, and controlled burns.

Even the East is having issues with fires with the policies of "no human must go near" the Greenies have chosen, sued for, and pushed for.

There are parts of the U.S., especially in certain western desert ecosystems, where the tracks of the settlers wagons are still there. Foot paths not used for 400 years, tire tracks from WW2, all semi-permanently scar the landscape. Some of those lands should be kept "pristine", or left to be alone without tire tracks or occupation. Pretty much the rest of the planet needs to be, not untouched, too late for that, but managed, intelligently, and policies must change to fit new information... and finding that existing policies are wrong.

See Yellowstone Park and Elk. A rolling multi-generational disaster story.

Or just look at the history of fire & mudslides in the People's Republic of California.

East coast, the majority of the thorns and brambles are European imports - natural fencing for crops, farm animals, and to keep predators at bay. We did that to ourselves, by bringing the crap here in the first place.

parts of Nebraska prairie still bear the marks of the wagon trains.

Other parts are sand dune desert, ( largest in NA ) but Nebraskans are stubborn folk, and plant grass on the sand dunes, since the dust bowl days they aren't eager to see again.

You wouldn't know it just driving through, unless the dune broke over the road recently and covered it in 50 feet of sand, but those hills are actually moving downwind.

Europeans are really big on hauling non-native plants all over and changing local ecosystems to grow cash crops.

They aren't the only ones, but they are the most recent wave. ( pretty sure someone complained about the jerks from Carthage ruining stuff )

I could giggle excessively at the Raw Water scam.

I do drink unprocessed spring water when camping and drive twenty plus miles to fill jugs for drinking. We used to use all spring water in camp but now use a filter array and Culligan tank to make the campground's well water ok for showers and cooking. ( we still use spring water for drinking )

Now just so I understand. Probiotic means? Encouraging germs? Closer to feces than normal? I'm behind in the health scam business. Sorry.

Standardized gut bugs? What if you have a custom set?

There has to be variations. Folk who eat spicy food, high milk diets, beef jerky eaters........

Seems like a sales thing to me. CFUs? All the foods mentioned are rotten.... ok, fermented. Not by the blessed yeast that gives us beer, either. Stuff found in French caves?

Let me guess. A multibillion dollar industry and the only people that need it are rare. Like the gluten craze. Next guess.... almost no quality assurance or regulations. A "food supplement" under no medical rules?

I find it difficult to buy this one. I admit decades of fraud and surprisingly few deaths from the Vitamin industry have made me cynical and suspicious. ( when half the supplement isle is empty one day because the grandstanding AG has "discovered" that the stuff in the bottles is sawdust and plastic, not what's on the label, do you blame me? )

Oh, to be sure, the water thing is a scam. A fool and his money are soon parted.

But you can buy probiotic pill over the counter. The good ones have ~10 strains. If youíve ever taken a very strong antibiotic and had the shits for a week, then popped a few of these, you will not doubt their efficacy.

I just don't think the AG has to get involved. Seriously. Be an educated consumer.

True, the companies should advertise what's actually in the product, in the case of allergies...but this is another example of government worrying about stuff that, honestly, isn't their problem. We've got REAL issues in this country today - worry about THOSE. Dedicate your resources (and NY citizens' tax dollars) where they can do some good.

Someone takes the wrong supplement and shits for a week...yea, it sucks, but don't buy that product again. Eventually enough people will stop buying and they'll stop making it, or they'll start making it correctly. God forbid one citizen dies from an allergy traced to improper labeling...and a lawsuit would drain the company that makes the stuff anyway. Problem solved.

Someone walks into our country, hates us and all we stand for, and flies a plane into a skyscraper.

Where do YOU think we should focus AG / government / enforcement dollars and resources?

Consumers - take some responsibility. Do some research. Take control of your own life.

I'm still waiting for "accountability" to be removed from Webster's...

Ever since Teddy Roosevelt we've had consumer protection laws. Certainly there have been excesses in enforcement and regulation, and I'd agree with you on most of those, I'd bet.

And I'm no fan of the NY AG. Quite the contrary. But if Walmart is selling people bottles marked "water" it better damn not have a lot of fecal matter. If the bottle is marked Vitamin D and it has dried pea dust and peanut flakes, then that's a crime. And going after criminals is actually the AG's job. So... credit where credit is due, Good Job! you rotten jerk.

Hey, I'm not going to lie about him to bring him down. I'm going to tell the truth about what a wanker he is. And in this, one, limited, possibly accidental case, he did good. ; )

So, my cynicism is a bit unwarranted? Probiotics can actually be of benefit in certain limited circumstances? Something other than Yogurt can fix the antibiotic trots? Nice. So, like the Gluten Craze, there IS some good to the stuff for a tiny fraction of the population, and it's not 100% scam?

Maybe I'll go buy a bottle of Vitamin D, last years pimped miracle cure, and see if it helps with SAD.

I used to be a Vitamin C fan. What I found was I didn't get colds when taking a gram a day. But the day I skipped, I got a cold. So I figured that the artificially high levels, and a sudden drop in them, were just as much a health problem as low levels could be. ( there is no doubt that lack of C is bad. Well proven over a century ) I don't megadose on C anymore, and I get colds in the normal numbers for someone as exposed as I am to them. ( no scurvy, either, thank you )

Hoot, being able to buy it over the counter isn't the issue. The whole aisle is full of them. ( the one I have to wait in at Walmart to pick up prescriptions )

And "fixed me up after a week" isn't very good science. "fixed me up in 2 days & last time it took a week" is better.

Not that I expect a double blind out of anecdotal testimony. : ) and I'm not doubting you. Don't get me wrong. Probiotics were just a buzzword to me.

And I'm not opposed to holistic health ideas.

I have issues with Some Chiropractors that say that alignment of the chakras means you don't need polio vaccine. And actresses that insist vaccination is an alien plot to put mind control chemicals in your system. Idiots. ( the mind control is from satellites! See the movie Red, with Bruce Willis... it's great )

I do have friends that love how chiropractors help their back problems. And I don't mock aligning your chakras... usually. I just don't buy that meditation will prevent measles. Cancer, maybe.

The pro-probiotic article I linked to above mentions the brain-gut connection and that's good science.

I have personal experience with meditation/feedback techniques that show the mind can control the body much more than most people think.

I'm not completely closed minded. I do try to use a filter.

Pat, you misread what I wrote. Shits for a week. Then the probiotics.

You also don't seem to understand how our digestive systems work. We need gut bacteria to digest food properly. That's not a homeopathic marketing gimmick. When you take antibiotics, especially very strong ones, the little buggers die off. Those probiotic pills contain replacement bacteria. They're not vitamins. Or sawdust.

~And "fixed me up after a week" isn't very good science

Interesting quote. I didn't write it. You do know how quotes work, right?

Oh I get it.

It was the supplement aisle with the vitamins and probiotics that got more than half the stock pulled because it wasn't vitamins or probiotics. The bottles ( or at least the ones sent for testing in NY ) had junk in them. Not what was on the label. Criminal fraud. Dangerous, uncaring who dies or is harmed, criminal negligence. Pure only in greed and evil.

Was anyone killed? Not that I know of. But who would know? Some lady dies from an allergy, no one is going to test her shelves and find out her ginko biloba bottle has lawn clippings and expired ground peanuts in place of the supposedly healthy herbs she expected and paid good money for. ( and the grass/peanut crud probably wouldn't be that bad for me to eat. After all, you're talking up the joys of taking bacteria pills. )

Even without callous criminal fraud ( and accidental death in the commission of a felony is murder ) most of the supplement aisle is useless junk anyway. You don't need, most people don't, any of that stuff.

Some few do benefit. Either because of poor diet or disease, some of the stuff that would do you or I no good at all, will help someone else. Other bottles are pure myth useless to anyone, except the sellers, and some herb based supplements, if they are actually in the bottles, are bad for humans, period. Luckily a small dose of poison daily often gets dealt with by your liver & kidneys with no lasting harm. ( & some real medicines like Tylenol can kill you with an overdose, or like Advil, slowly damage your liver...... or not, depending on your individual genetics and lifetime dosage...... and maybe astrological sign ; ) )

How quotes work? Good point. What button on this keyboard gives me the symbol for hypocritical argument dialog made up to prove a point? Or do I just sign it 'Aesquire-d' to show my political justification for making it up? ; )
