Guess What the Tylenol Shortage and the

There’s a nationwide shortage of Tylenol and other common pain medications. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of Fentanyl coming in through America’s porous southern border for anyone who wants to get high — or dead.CBS News reported Thursday on our “national shortage” of children’s Tylenol and other medicines have “retailers like CVS, Target and Walgreens” placing strict limits on how much medicine people can buy. Even though companies like Johnson & Johnson are producing new meds “around the clock,” shortages could nevertheless last “into early next year.” One reason for the shortages is a spike in demand caused by the annual flu season, COVID-19, and unusually high RSV and

How is government regulating output? Or is this because we gave away all pharmaceutical responsibilities to our good friends the Chinese? Are there any facilities within the great 48 that can be used to start making these generic medications? Or have regulations sponsored by foreign agents prevented the legal and cost effective production of basic medications?

The CCP is part of the supply chain of incredients that are needed for production of Tylenol. Shortage of Tylenol. CCP. Coincidence? Gibb's rule 39 applies here.

Tylenol's pretty much low dose Fentanyl. Buy Tylenol and take 7 of them.

Not too many years ago, most American pharmaceutical companies had manufacturing operations on Puerto Rico, providing US-made drugs and providing well-paying jobs. In return, the US companies got a tax break, which I believe was removed by the Clinton Regime.

Whoa # 4 - I did discover while having pain from an abscessed tooth at opioid pills wouldn't touch that three extra strength Tylenol helped tremendously. But Seven? You know about Tylenol and liver issues, right?

Are all these stories about “little destructions” just anecdotes of a massive civilization churning through life? Or are they data points that add up to systemic, unmanageable failure? Not that a Tylenol shortage if your child has a bad fever wouldn’t be catastrophic. And not that schmoe is capable of managing anything even if he doesn’t happen to be on vacation at any particular moment.

It is not like there has never been a flu outbreak along with other illnesses at the same time before. There was always plenty of Tylenol or store brand / generic substitutes. Today, Government and media created fearmongering over the newest epidemic sweeping the nation is causing parents to panic. Normally easy to find drugs and medications are now difficult to find. What happened to all of the drug manufacturers? There were plenty a year ago. Are they victims of Biden's Build Back Better policies to assure equity? Make sure that nobody has access to medications!

Tylenol has never worked for me for anything. Ibuprofen, on the other hand, works very well. Thankfully I was able to put in some when I went to Costco. I wish Ketoprofin was still available OTC. That was better than either of them.

Re #4, I hope you were trying to be funny, but it is not. Tylenol is the most dangerous OTC medicine, according to a pharmacist friend. He says that the normal dosage is only 1/8th the fatal dosage. Overdosing on Tylenol like "take 7 of them" is literally suicidal. The toxic effect literally kills your liver and it is "unfixable". I'm not kidding, and you shouldn't give out potentially deadly advice like that.

Re #10, a perfect example of why OTC pain killers have to be tested on each person. I'm the opposite of you, Tylenol and aspirin are very effective for me, and ibuprofen has literally zero effect on me for pain reduction. Ibuprofen works great for my wife, as does both aspirin and Tylenol. I find that naproxin sodium works great for me, too. But tylenol is toxic to the liver in excessive doses. OTC antihistamines are similarly highly variable in effectiveness and side effects on different people. Dimetapp is like a mickey finn for me, but the cheapest generic diphenhydramine is perfect for a runny nose for me. The same pharmacist friend when asked "what's a good antihistamine" chuckled and said "A simple question with no answer. You have to just try them and see, they all work differently on different people."

If memory serves, the children's medications shortage started before the cold/flu season. Warnings by people who pay attention were published, but unfortunately so many people just don't grab the clues that are being given. It isn't just the kids who are hurting, but people with heart conditions who are under orders to take a children's aspirin daily to protect their hearts from further problems are also at risk here. I would not be surprised to find out that part of the ingredients for these medications come from China and other countries who are maybe holding back.

Members of Congress departed Washington on Friday with the group of House Republicans voicing opposition to McCarthy for Speaker showing no signs of wavering, setting up a dramatic Jan. 3 Speaker’s vote — or series of votes — on the first day of the 118th Congress.McCarthy brushed off a question on Friday asking how he plans to lock up support over the holidays, saying he plans to “go home; have a really nice Christmas.” At least five House Republicans have explicitly said or strongly indicated they will not vote for McCarthy to be Speaker, and several others have withheld support for

A federal judge in Florida has refused to throw out criminal charges against Andrew Gillum, disagreeing with the former Democratic gubernatorial nominee’s assertions that he was the victim of selective prosecution because he was a Black candidate for governor. Gillum and a colleague were indicted earlier this year on federal charges including conspiracy, wire fraud and making false statements to FBI agents. Prosecutors said Gillum funneled donations through third parties back to himself for personal use. According to prosecutors, Gillum met with undercover FBI agents posing as developers while he was mayor of Tallahassee and during his campaign for governor. His associates sought donations from the agents, and suggested ways to

After four years of legislative malfeasance by Nancy Pelosi and her Democratic myrmidons, the Republicans will soon have a 222–213 majority in the House of Representatives. It should be obvious to the meanest intelligence that, to accomplish anything useful with such a narrow majority, the House Republican Conference has to close ranks and prepare for a war with a radicalized Democratic minority that will continue its ongoing effort to undermine the will of the voters.

Late on Wednesday evening following Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's address to a joint session of Congress, members of the United States Senate were back to squabbling over the 4,155-page, $1.7 trillion omnibus bill being forced by Democrats with assistance from some Republicans such as Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky — and the massive bill might be in deep trouble. In a stroke of genius, Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah decided to try and attach an amendment to the monstrous omnibus that would extend Title 42 expulsion authority that was set to expire this week.

Of the several unwelcome revelations in the past six years, the most politically significant is that liberalism as a political philosophy is dead. Oh, there may still be some individuals who identify with it, but for the most part they are old, retired, or cowed into silence by the howling mobs of progressives, the “woke,” and the identitarian left. And how do we know this? We know it by the collapse of colleges and universities as places of open debate and inquiry. And we know it by the abandonment of any kind of honest and principled journalism by the vast majority of the legacy and social media.  CORRECTION*

Political disagreements were not on the menu at Il Postino on the Upper East Side, where Andrew Cuomo and Kellyanne Conway dined together Monday night. The disgraced former governor sat with the ex-political adviser for one of his biggest rivals — former President Donald Trump. Cuomo, a Democrat, and Conway, a Republican, were photographed leaving the Italian restaurant on 61st Street after 10 p.m. The former gov did not comment on the relevance of the dinner as he got into his car. He waved to Conway as they parted ways. The unlikely pair had been at the center of political power just two years ago.

For the past two years, the corporate media have earnestly assured us that, for the first time in history, we were blessed with an immaculate election in 2020. It was, we are told, unsullied by unsavory practices once thought endemic to politics. Unaccountably, however, many voters remain uncomfortable with certain curious aspects of that election. The most recent indication of this can be found in a new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll that plumbed public opinion on the so-called Twitter Files.

Imagine if Donald Trump had released this as his “major announcement” rather than his NFT trading cards. Or at least before his attempt to fundraise off of MAGA on social media. This might not qualify as a “major announcement,” but at least it would have been taken much more seriously. Instead, the Trump campaign didn’t even “announce” this. They gave it as an exclusive to Jack Posobiec a couple of hours after Trump’s NFT launch on Truth Social. The strategic fumble is unfortunate, as this actually addresses real issues in play rather than just Trump’s compulsion for self-promotion:

Our intelligence apparatus — or “the deep state,” in former President Donald Trump’s words — has meddled in two presidential elections acting on behalf of the Democratic Party. Instead of reporting on it, the mainstream media have served as willing pawns of these bureaucratic actors to amplify misinformation. Congress has done nothing about it. And no one in any federal agency has been held accountable. How can this happen in a country that prides itself on its “free and fair” elections?

2023 tax credits for EVs will boost their appeal 26 replies

Starting Jan. 1, many Americans will qualify for a tax credit of up to $7,500 for buying an electric vehicle. The credit, part of changes enacted in the Inflation Reduction Act, is designed to spur EV sales and reduce greenhouse emissions. But a complex web of requirements, including where vehicles and batteries must be manufactured to qualify, is casting doubt on whether anyone can receive the full $7,500 credit next year. For at least the first two months of 2023, though, a delay in the Treasury Department’s rules for the new benefit will likely make the full credit temporarily available to consumers who meet certain income and price limits.

When the 2020 presidential campaign was lurching into gear three years ago, former Vice President Joe Biden had led in the polls for months. Still, everyone kind of assumed he was a placeholder, a former office-holder with high name recognition whose campaign would nevertheless go the way of his two previous presidential bids, meaning nowhere. He was dull as dishwater compared to many of the others vying for the nomination, and nobody had ever really considered him presidential timber. As the campaign took off, other candidates were winning in the early states even as Biden still led in national polls.

This is either a bizarre coincidence or evidence that a Narrative™ decree has gone out. (No, I don’t think there are actual decrees…mostly). Yesterday I wrote a piece about Scientific American’s rather odd republishing through tweet of an article originally published in 2020. In it, the author argued that the medical establishment and our society as a whole stigmatizes obesity because Black women are the most obese demographic in America. People can be “healthy at any size,” and focusing on obesity as a health problem is racist. Now one day later Time Magazine is promoting an article that argues that exercise has White supremacist roots.

Tolerance is a good thing in most aspects of life. But when it comes to the immune system, artificially juicing up the body to create antibodies with long-term tolerance to a pathogen is a recipe for disaster. Amid thousands of papers on COVID and the vaccines, a new German paper published in Science Immunology should be the headline story this week. Although the subject matter is very dense, the implication of it is that the Pfizer shots (and possibly other mRNA spike protein shots) caused the immune system to misfire, thereby creating an endless feedback loop of viral immune escape, perpetuating the pandemic in the macro,

In another Lucy and Charlie Brown football scenario, the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act that they claimed would help Americans and not raise taxes on anyone making under $400,000 a year could reportedly cost taxpayers in excess of $20 billion in new taxes.
