I may have conceded or I just grew tired of discussing Taylor's situation with you. Nothing either you or I believe has much, if any affect on him in all reality.

Enjoy your continued studies of non-dolphin mammalian blow holes (land based). In time you might find some shit.

I see I have piqued your interest, blowholes can be fucked to.

Bill Kristol: Legalizing Pot Is 'Playing With Our Kids' Futures'
Thursday, 31 Jul 2014
By Bill Hoffmann

Continued legalization of marijuana across the United States would be a disaster for the nation, Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard and an ABC News political commentator, told Newsmax TV.

"It's really irresponsible the attitude people have taken towards this, that it's a chic thing … to say we've got to decriminalize some of these drugs,'' Kristol said Wednesday on Newsmax's "The Steve Malzberg Show.

"But it's playing with our kids' futures, really.''

Story continues below video.

Kristol said he served as chief of staff to Secretary of Education William Bennett during the Reagan administration, when Washington launched its ambitious crusade against drugs.

"You looked at the damages being done by the drug epidemic then, and there'll be more drug use if it's legal and if it's cheap. So yeah, I'm very concerned about what's happening.''

Thus far, Colorado and Washington, have legalized the recreational use of marijuana, and Maryland passed a law decriminalizing possession of 10 grams or less. Maryland, New York and Minnesota have also passed legislation for the use of medical pot.

Kristol also weighed in on President Barack Obama's use of executive power and the recent warnings by Democrats that the GOP wants to impeach the commander-in-chief.

"I’m not for impeaching him, no one really is, I guess, at this point,'' Kristol said.

"The conventional wisdom is … it would be an utter political disaster, a horrible mistake."

Kristol said he was surprised that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was one of 11 Republicans who voted along with Democrats in the Senate to keep the president's request for $3.7 billion to help ease the U.S.-Mexico border crisis.

"I would have voted on the other way on that…. Getting this president $3 billion with no strings, basically no legal changes … that doesn't sit well with me,'' he said.

"It's not that we're not spending enough money that's causing this to happen right? So it's crazy for Republicans to go along with that Democratic narrative.''

Who is this idiot? the drug epidemic? the damage that has been done by the war on drugs far exceeds this and what the fuck do kids have to do with legal drugs for adults.

I would be more worried about the climate then drugs with regards to kids futures. They are going to inherit alot of fucking problems.

You are stubborn as I am. I'll allow that your manner of using the quote feature keeps the conversation clear for those who aren't adept at reading ahead. So, as a compromise, I am trying this method of response to you

You win. None of the folks I know or knew before they died of AIDS related illnesses used steroids prior to being infected with HIV as best as I know.

You imply you have inside information with regards to Tbombz. Perhaps you are his doctor? I hope not since if you are, you bordering on violating HIPAA Laws.

I'll admit my personal experience with steroid use is limited. Although I'm currently on HRT and I have taken D-Bol in the past, I only took what my doctors prescribed me. I have not taken mega doses as some folks have done. I may have had hypogonadism since my teenage years as a result of mumps orchitis at 14. I've only been on HRT since for five years. 70 year old men often suffer low test levels just because we are, well, old.

This reply also suggests you have personal information regarding Tbombz.
Yes I do want you to dig up old posts. I'm confident I never told him unsafe sex was a good idea. You are implying otherwise.
Look back at you. Good friends of mine died because of unsafe sexual practices which ended in their becoming infected with HIV and eventually having AIDS, albeit it was awhile ago. As for Taylor's G4P activities, I actually chided him because he was doing this under the guise of being a massage therapist. Legitimate massage therapists would lose their license if they provided happy endings like he was doing.

This is good because I am not impressed, mainly for the reasons I mentioned above. Also you've not really indicated what you have a doctorate in. Unless your specialty has to do with viruses, specifically the treatment of HIV and AIDS and you have medical expertise with HRT and steroid usage, you could just be another quack doctor.

Most people spend about a third of their lives at work. Think about that before you suggest life starts after you get home from work. I am not saying many people don't put on a different face at work, but if they have a mental illness, it eventually shows.

My bum is fine. Thanks for your medical concern. If I have a problem with it sometime hence, I already have a doctor I trust. Hope there are no hard feelings.... Roll Eyes

You have conceded all relevant points. I am not his doctor, WTF. My doctorate is in the study of non dolphin mammalian blow holes (land based), I haven't found shit. They keep saying you don't understand what a blowhole is bro, we are on land! I defended my thesis and marine world.

1. Doctor of ass ripping, learn to use the quote feature properly. Being a doctor and all, it can't be that hard for you to figure out.

I used the quote feature in both manners when responding, hence your comment is stupid. Par for course here.

I have a very good idea what wasting syndrome or cachexia are, particularly as it applies to HIV patients. And doctor, just so you know for future reference one doesn't generally suffer cachexia until they have full blown AIDS which Tbombz likely does not at this stage of the disease. As I believe I mentioned before,  I have both friends and family who have HIV. Some died as result of AIDS acquired in the 1980's. I have personally known people with cachexia.

Again, his HG is from steriod abuse. He does not have cachexia. However, being deficient in testosterone will lead to muscle wasting. Now I don't know what drugs he is specifically on but this is again exacerbated by the meds. It's a bad idea, makes sense you would be on the opposing side, to suggest he is fine because his CD4 is at an accetable arbitrary level.  I won't debate anymore of this with you. He will experience wasting, namely of lean tissue. Now if you are talking cachexia from rapidly metabolic cells then we can have a different discussion.

2. At least you can admit this. That's a step in the right direction.

3. Did you ask him or did you simply assume he still doesn't have a job. Regardless, I suspect you might be right, but in all actuality you probably don't really know.
I know.

4. Quit putting words in my mouth or attributing what you think I posted with regards to Tbombz' situation at any given point. I asked for proof. When you can produce that, we can talk.
I can't paraphrase? you want me to dig up old posts? look at what you are arguing for in this thread. He is making another bad decision due to OCD and you are arguing against a doctor about cachexia, which I stated, specifically he did not have (at least in a clinical sense), he will fit the criteria for it however.

5. Yes Christianity still exists. Glad you understand this.

7. There are folks who would disagree with you regarding work and family not being real life. True, my children never suffered mental illness, and for this I am grateful since my aunt was a schizophrenic and some suggest schizophrenia is hereditary. Trust me, when you work with a hundred or more folks, some of them have mental conditions. I also was the district's union chapter president for more than a dozen years. All in all I represented over 1,000 employees. During that time I, witnessed a lot.

Incidentally, you previously alluded to you being a doctor. Am I supposed to be impressed? A doctorate does not guarantee wisdom. I've know a few idiots who had earned doctorates in my time.

Not trying to impress you, I was simply establishing my expertise so I don't have to continue to debate medicine with you. You however, want to continue to debate it. i have seen war on TV, therefore I know. Listen, when people go home from work that's when life starts.

Just so you know, my ass feels just fine. But if I ever have a problem with it, I won't likely be contacting you, Dr. Who.

Ouch. zing. grown man won't bring his sore bum to me

1 & 6. Hypogonadism was recognized as being relatively common early in the HIV epidemic. Low levels of testosterone in HIV-infected men may be associated with a variety of symptoms and signs including weight loss, muscle wasting, low bone mineral density, and decreased libido. Look at the recent photo he posted. Does it look like he suffers weight loss and muscle wasting?

Ok, I will break the news to you, I am a doctor. You have no idea what wasting or cachexia is, he doesn't have it, but that's not the point. His hypogonadism isn't due to HIV so again you are off base. Listen, you can just stop now or I can rip your ass apart. This is what I do.

2. He seems to enjoy golfing with his dad. Looks like an improved relationship to me. Maybe you are a person who can't mend fences.
Possibly, my point still stands

3. I know people who have HIV and who still work. There are also programs Like the AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAP) and State or community assistance programs which help low income people pay for their meds. Medicaid is a government-funded healthcare program that has been designated to provide lower income individuals and families with health insurance. In California, the income requirement for two is $1,743 a month or less.
Ok, he doesn't have a job. Ask him yourself.

4. If you have proof I cheered him on or encouraged him to sell his ass, post it. I don't believe I ever said such a thing.
You say nothing wrong with his exploration when it was a clear psychotic break, mania induced bad decisions. You say this as a milestone in his life, encouraged him to explore etc. He wasn't himself, he was high and having a really hard time, good job.

5. News flash! Presently a large majority of Americans -- 77% of the adult population -- identify with a Christian religion. Christians believe in Christ. Finding Jesus still exists.
Oh I am aware it exists, it came to my front door the other day.

7. If you prefer to be "real" by your definition by criticizing others instead of encouraging through positive reinforcement, that is fine. It is not a philosophy I agree with.  My wife and I raised two children using positive reinforcement. They both lead productive and successful lives. I also supervised nearly 100 people where I worked. Most were good employees and a benefit to the organization.

Who are you Stephen Covey? work and real life are two different things. If a person is making terrible life decisions with grave consequences positive reinforcement is the absolute LAST thing you use. It's consequence aka the truth, reality. The other point is that you don;t have sick kids. Taylor was a sick kid, read his history, stealing, drugging, depression etc... disease is real, your work isn't, you can't call in sick with HIV, nor OCD, ADHD etc

I would ask you how your ass feels after that but it would probably backfire.

9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getbig Athletes, Tbombz wants training advice on: July 27, 2014, 03:24:49 PM

You clearly like to fabricate things. I suspect HRT is not part of the currently doctor prescribed regime for HIV treatment. He hardly looks like he is wasting away. Normally steroids are prescribed to patients who need to build themselves up.

First, you say I suspect, why don't you look at the treatment for a hypogonadal patient with HIV, ya he looks bloated and terrible, like someone who is on a cocktail of retrovirals,NRTI's and whatever other cocktail they can think of. He looks absolutely horrible. Open your fucking eyes

Obviously if he is golfing with his dad, he's mended fences with at least some of his family. Families are often very forgiving.

For one, you think playing a game of golf means he mended fences? was his father even mad? pure conjecture.

You don't know that he is still unemployed. Perhaps he's working on his education as he planned to do.
Oh he is unemployed, I guarentee it. I can deduce that from his situation, namely the cost of his drugs.

I have never advised anyone to have unsafe sex and I never will. Where did you ever get this from? Oh that's right, you imagined it in your little pea brain.
You were cheering him on as he was in a meth induced meltdown, nothing wrong with selling your ass for money?

Lot's of people find Jesus and accept him as their savior. It's not my thing, but it's not a bad thing either. If it works for him and he feels he's a better person as a result, who am I to argue with this.
Exactly, sit back and let the fucking bronze age thinking guide him.

Unless you are a doctor, more specifically, Taylor's doctor, it is you that seems to be spewing bullshit here.

I am and I don't need to be his doctor to tell him not to come off medication without discussing his complex issues. For one he has mental health issues. The effects of going into a hypogonadal state on catecholamines/adrenal hormones will make this worse. 

Rather than being negative, I prefer to encourage people by being as supportive as possible whenever possible.

I don't, I like to critically appraise each situation, truth matters, not everything in life is positive and this new age guru shit of being optimistic is absurd. Begin skeptical, showing some pessimism goes a long way perhaps you should learn to not just giggle and smile hoping for ass pics as a kid self destructs. "What a nice bunny suit". I also think I am being real, not negative.

It does appear that there is a slow in warming and that it's probably just a mistake by Al Gore.

They are basically claiming the water goes up and down! ever hear of a tide? or even a wave? 1cm! lol

"The research team estimated that areas of the ocean near the Philippines and northeast Australia are being raised by about 1 centimeter per year due to anthropogenic warming, which can increase the intensity of severe weather. “When water starts piling up there and typhoon-like storms are traveling over higher sea levels, it can be a bad situation, - See more at:"

Then there's this. They are saying we are in earth's 6th mass extinction event. Who cares? Do honey bears pay taxes?

Then there's the massive drop in food that's coming.

Then the go and look at the stats of the water based on the systems we use. The sea-level raise isn't even possible without intervention, the sea's natural variability isn't within the found range apparently. Math smath

"The minimum anthropogenic sea level trend (MASLT) contributes to the observed sea level rise more than 50% in New York, Baltimore, San Diego, Marseille and Mumbai. A MASLT is about 1 mm/yr in global sea level reconstructions that is more than half of the total observed sea level trend during the XXth century."

In all seriosuness, I appreciate your advice many moons ago.  I think not taking drugs was the right course.  The people I know who are on them have really suffered.  It's a cart/horse thing of course but they're in a bad way all the time.  Hard to imagine a worse result without the pharma.

12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getbig Athletes, Tbombz wants training advice on: July 27, 2014, 05:05:30 AM
Tbombz starts a thread asking for training advice and out come all the clowns who have nothing of value to post. Seems some of you are mired in the muck and will never rise above it. Tbombz on the other hand, seems to be doing pretty well lately.

My advice is to go to a physical therapist for your back. They can not only help you strengthen it, they will teach you movements/exercises so that you can maintain a healthy back. One correction from someone else's post, most back pain is not caused by kidney failure. Chances are, you are just having back trouble. Another thing you might try to not only help with your back but it could even improve your golf game, is yoga. It takes a lot of concentration to learn and do yoga moves just like it takes a lot of concentration to be really on your game on the course.

It's great that you and your dad have this sport in common. Seems like you've mended some fences.

Ya he is doing really well, he alienated his family, embarrased them, contracted aids, doesn't work and now is stopping medications without doctors permission etc are you high or something? or just deflecting from your terrible advice which appears to have given him a potential fatal infection.

Some of us talk the truth, not this bullshit you are spewing. The fucking kid is a mess, he always has been, abusing drugs, stealing etc he needs real fucking advice, help obviously. He was living out of a car recently. Keep propping him up with bullshit, great job. How about you give him the truth?

For example, you dont' even mention that he is following his own medical advice (stopping HRT etc) obviously without his doctor's knowlege, just another stupid decision in a long line. For jesus? test for jesus? what about the other drugs? his delusion is killing him and you seem to be egging him on. He has made little to no good choices in his life from my perspective. I have known him from the start.

Good idea Taylor stop a drug that you might need because you again fucked yourself up on drugs (steriods), and now are making another stupid decision. Despite my fucking trolling I actually wish he would take some fucking sane advice. Taylor. You have HIV. you also have hypogonadism, most likely secondary. It makes no fucking sense for you to stop it, especially in light of potential wasting that could occur, which as you know (you don't because you are clueless) can occur and you can even have a chacexia.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Armed Dr saves coworkers after psych patient kills caseworker on: July 26, 2014, 10:24:43 AM
Nah, I think it's ok to be honest about stuff.  Everyone has feelings that range from the pink & fuzzy to the bloodsoaked.  Not saying we should act on them but the unnatural thing is to believe you're supposed to think and feel only within bookends.  I don't accept that.  It leads a lot of people to become convinced there's something wrong about themselves when there isn't.  Good for the pharmaceutical business but not so good for the actual mental health thing imo. 

So yeah, that and more depending on what criteria of diagnoses are applied.  We all are.  If I'm being honest tho, most of these maladies seem to have at their core someone operating out of a self interested agenda without the counterbalance of empathy.  I don't really have an agenda.  I quite enjoy not wanting anything from people.  I enjoy even more people who don't want anything from me. Feels like freedom.  Well, except for business relationships where I'm as mercenary as they come.  Otherwise I got empathy out the ass.  Unless I'm angry, but that's ok.  That's what angry means.  Your empathy goes and you want to conk the other guy on the head.  It's a good thing we have that.

Accepting one's self is one of the great benefits of being hopelessly self absorbed.  The basic problem with people today is that they aren't more like I am.

never mind psychopath

Utter crap.  I have worked in the housing projects in New Orleans as well as doing social work in the worst part of San Francisco.  I've lived in very violent neighborhoods and I've never carried a gun, nor do I want one.  I have had people threaten me plenty of times.  I'm just not so scared of it all that I'm going to change my life and start carrying a gun around with me everytime I do to a movie or go to get a cup of coffee at dunkin donuts.  When that happens, you've lost.

Remember what Rambo said...."I've always thought the best weapon was the mind".  Have we learned nothing from Rambo?Huh

no, if everyone had a gun no one would shoot anyone. Obviously a suicidal maniac is going to think twice about shooting people if they have guns right? I mean he is logical and rational in that moment. I am sure more guns would have detered him.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Armed Dr saves coworkers after psych patient kills caseworker on: July 26, 2014, 07:27:03 AM

LOL @ thinking cops are professesionals with guns.

Dude. Great majority of cops shoot once a year to qualify with their duty weapon. I know 6 cops as acquaintances and friends. They don't shoot recreationally.

On the other hand, myself included, I shoot every 2-3 weeks at a range with a few dozen people 150-200 rounds each time. Who's more proficient with a weapon?

They are required to regulalry train with firearms. Europe is a continent by the way. Like Africa or North America which includes other countries.

How many people do what you do? less then 1% I would say. Still doesn't make a sane argument. A doctor is in a position of stress already, surgeons etc. " Doc theres a scramble outside, grab your glock", "be a hero". If a stray bullet killed a sick child we wouldn't be having this conversation. The idea that if everyone is armed shit like this wouldn't happen is also absurd. The exact opposite is in fact true.

I can understand hunting rifles, or using them at the range for fun, but carrying one around? shooting another human with it? I am sure this guy is messed up from this situation, killing someone, namely someone who maybe has lost control of their actions must be tough. The guy was sick obviously, carrying a gun and executing patients is the second line of the hippocratic oath.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Armed Dr saves coworkers after psych patient kills caseworker on: July 26, 2014, 07:07:43 AM

So, you concede that this particular situation was ideal, but I'm still uncertain if you would have preferred the doctor not been armed.

I'm not seeking a blanket statement/response, but unfortunately, that is all we tend to get from both hardcore gun-nutters and anti-gun libs. You can only examine these kinds of situations on an individual basis. There is no ONE universal answer.

I would agree there is no universal answer, however, there isn't one for anything, thus logical due dilligence to prevent MOST issues is the best approximation. Chaos is out there,is out there. It can't be bargained with! It can't be reasoned with! It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Armed Dr saves coworkers after psych patient kills caseworker on: July 25, 2014, 05:27:14 PM

Would you have preferred that the "doctor" in this particular situation been unarmed?

What do you suspect the consequences would have been in that instance?

why are you quoting doctor?

Would I have preferred? it's not my preference for doctors to be armed no. it is not my preference for doctors to use discretion of force in these situations, most of which no doctor will ever see. This is a blight, a rare occurrence, in this situation it was ideal.

I wouldn't be mad at the doctor but this is just another fucking issue is more guns right? if everyone had a gun this stuff wouldn't happen right? I bet you accidents with handguns are more common then mass murders, if so, how can you logically conclude that more untrained professionals handling guns would reduce overall death?

security is needed, not the wild west.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Armed Dr saves coworkers after psych patient kills caseworker on: July 25, 2014, 04:07:35 PM

bet the national news doesn't hype this story like all the other mass shootings...

unfortunately the Dr will probably get in trouble for being armed at work even though it prevented a mass tragedy

I dont't want a fucking doctor acting as a cop, firearms and that shit should be left to professionals, ie security. If you think giving civilians guns to use at the workplace is smart you're stupid.

It's not needed in Heaven because there is an infinite supply of resources and nobody has to work to earn anything.  There is no need to share anything with anyone because there is no needy.

Jesus was all about giving everything up and helping others, he talked about rich people being unable to get to heaven due to missing the point of life. I mean if there is a bigger life/existence ahead of us you think you guys would be more jesus like. I don't think you guys really believe, there is still doubt there, the doubt that this is all made up, that a group of men made up a story and that gripped europe then the world.

I mean the only aggressive act in the bible in which Jesus is involved is regarding the rich.
