If you're going to be having surgery or an extraction the last thing you want to do is mediate with alcohol. Alcohol has a unique property of making bleeding worse and having had five tooth extractions already (4 wisdoms and back molar that was completely rotted) let me assure you, you will bleed. I would suggest ibuprofen for pain management, both before and after--though the oral surgeon is likely to prescribe you an opiate for after.

Really?

I mean, REALLY?

Do you have an example?

This should be hilarious!

Glick comes in and re-posts the same old same old, his like-mindless lick it up once again, and then his 'thinking' gets torn to shreds once again. He disappears again for a few months before rinse and repeat. Rinse and repeat.

He deserves ridicule from the front, the back, or from any other direction.

Sorry for being harsh to you - I'm just in that mode.

You made it interesting around here. Thanks!

You are welcome, and no matter what I think of you I wouldn't go around telling newbies crap about you behind your back. Some people need to grow the F up.

So all the liberals who make ad hom attacks on conservatives are also trolls?
That would make quite a list of liberal trolls.

ETA: I wouldn't call either liberal or conservative mudslingers "trolls." To me, their nastiness seems quite sincere.
The only "troll" on this forum that I know for sure was a troll was the person pretending to be a suicidal teenager, complete with a fake high school name (yes someone called the town to check.)

Scott did not win the Black vote in SC; how difficult is that for you to grasp?

http://www.thestate.com/news/politic...e13900028.html

SCís Scott poised to make history, but not with black votes
I know this might be difficult to grasp, but people do not necessarily vote by skin color. Think about that - amazing, huh?

HorseshXt.

What he said was today it's "states rights" "cutting taxes" and a "hell of a lot more abstract" - that's the GOP.

Pretty lame attempt at obfuscating, dude.

- from your own link -

he rioters were overwhelmingly working-class men, primarily ethnic Irish, resenting particularly that wealthier men, who could afford to pay a $300 (equivalent to $5,766 in 2015) commutation fee to hire a substitute, were spared from the draft.[4]

Racism in one place doesn't excuse it in another, and certainly doesn't come anywhere close to excusing the most vile evil institution of slavery.

And it certainly is no excuse across time. Please point to me an incident of Irish Catholic Democrats in 2016 being racists. I can certainly point that out for the a-hole that's running your Party now.

No, what you do is attempt to craft the most asinine excuses for your tribe's racism. It's not odd; it's your nature - that overstimulated amygdala's xenophobia makes it so.

I did not say that. I am saying that not all Southern Republicans voted for him. Also, I understand that not all Southern Republicans are racist. But there are Southern Republicans that are. You cannot just say that racism is in one party only.

I had a horrible painful tooth infection that ended up with a root canal a few years ago. Before that happened, I was taking pain medications on top of antibiotics and it did a number on my stomach. I had the worst heartburn that I've ever had; so bad that I was afraid that it was a heart attack and I ended up spending the night in a hospital. Fortunately, it all worked out.

I know you'll be glad when this is over! Good luck.

"Weíre leading up to my whole strategy in the deep south in 1980, whichÖthe whole focus group in the south was that blue collar worker. Now thatís important when you tie it back to the racist thing, because he is also the guy who is most threatened by the black, and is also the most prone to be, quote, a racist. And until 1980, and a little bit in 1976, the race issue was how you approached that vote. Plus, the most conservative guy on fiscal matters always got his vote, and the toughest son of a bitch on foreign policy matters got his vote." Ö
Q: But [Reaganís] not going to lose the south if he goes along with what the blacks want on voting rights, is what youíre saying?
A: That should be a thrust of his...

...i.e., that's how Donkey's did it until 1980 (Carter won the South in 1976, after all), not how Republicans did it. Sheesh.

...the dumbest bigots voted for Demorats back then, and they still do. They're just a lot more likely to be Black than Irish Catholics nowadays.

Meanwhile, this is Playdude's original post:

-Nothing to do with racism? The facts of the Federal draft 1863-1865, Irish military participation in the US Military, and the Draft Riots:

http://ouleft.org/wp-content/uploads...il-War-Era.pdf

The draft: pp. 603-605

Irish participation: pp. 606-607 (including footnote 31)

The Draft Riots: pp. 609-610 (including endnote 37)

... Almost all of the people killed by the mob were Blacks. Obviously race had something to do with it. Or maybe he wants to argue with James McPherson and his sources. Thta's fine, but let's see Playdude's sources. Until then, a bunch of misinformed Irish New York City Tammany Hall bigots killed Blacks and burned down a Black orphanage. Sheesh.

It's a fact that white voters in Mississippi and Alabama vote 90% Republican, and black voters in those states vote 90% Democratic. People there vote by race. Further north, in Appalachian and border states, most whites vote Republican too; not in those numbers, but since there are fewer blacks there, they are now some of the most Republican states.

Yes, some southern Republicans will vote for a black Republican, as in SC, and for Ben Carson, etc. But many of seem to have a problem with a black president, in the case of Obama. A black liberal Democrat, seems a bit more of a problem for some whites, than a black Republican or even a white Democrat like the Clintons.

Obama is considered to be a joke by most whites. The majority of whites know that he got to where he's at by being black. It is obvious to me that he has received preferential treatment on account of his race and he was accustomed to getting his way without having to try hard, without having to be persistent, able to scratch and claw his way through adversity and be open to facing major challenges. I associate Obama as being a novelty type president. He represents everything that regular white folks hate about progressives. Progressives are only about advancing people because of their skin tone/race, their gender, their sexual preference or their preference toward advancing more passively natured people.

Yes Alcohol thins the blood. It also harms more organs than the Ibuprofen. That said if you have an infection the best course of action is to get started on antibiotics as quickly as possible. Afterward you'll probably want to drink Kifer to replace your gut fauna.

I've also used buttermilk and yogurt as well after my extractions. The MD gave me some sort of opiate but I didn't get the script filled (well after the first time). A bag of frozen peas worked just as well and didn't get me high.

Of course, and as well all know Eric is never boring, insulting or off-topic.
