Open Thread | This Is Right: Damar Hamlin IS NOT “A Miracle”

He is a beneficiary of the best healthcare money can buy, and immediate access to it.

Wendy Hasson MD (@WendyHassonMD) tweeted at 1:26 PM on Fri, Jan 06, 2023:
because their pastor describes every medical recovery as a miracle.

Lots of believers suffer prolonged excruciating disease and existential crisis waiting for that miracle because of this misuse of miracle language.

Also, it makes the medical staff’s job a lot harder.

This picture😢😢😢😢
🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿it matters…the kind of healthcare
He is alive because he had access to the best healthcare this country can provide

But, acknowledging this….I did tear up when I saw this tweet:

    The anti-abortion movement is rooted in white supremacy but y’all aren’t ready for that conversation yet…👀

    Prince Harry wasn’t supposed to leave but if you look at it closely, they offered him nothing, not family, not love or understanding, straight up gaslighted him…the whole game was coercion by using money and his security, that’s a blood cult, not a family #Spare

    Still chuckling about the white woman so pressed about Black Girl Magic that she didn’t get it’s a phrase of empowerment. But if any group does have “divination” it would be black women. Die mad about it Klanren.

    “People often speculated that I was clinging to my bachelor life because it was glamorous. Many evenings I’d think if only they knew…. Besides my own laundry, dried on my radiators, I did my own chores, cooking & food shopping..”-Prince Harry Spare

    Before murdering 49 people at Pulse, the shooter used credit cards to buy $26,000 in guns, ammo and body armor in 12 days.

    Card companies are now flagging similar suspicious activity to prevent mass shootings.

    Republicans want those companies PUNISHED.

    It’s actually crazy the amount of abuse Prince Harry gets for literally just standing up for his wife like any real man should do, but yet he’s more spoken about and hated than the sexual predator Prince Andrew who has been allowed back into the royal family.

    In the past, I’ve never heard of a Transportation Secretary be blamed for such issues the way they are blaming Pete relentlessly.

    I’d like to know how he is different from Andy Card, Elaine Chao, Liddy Dole or any other previous secretary. Why is he to individually to blame?

    They campaigned on inflation, border security, and gas prices. And the first bill they pass is…The “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”—requiring health care providers to try to preserve the life of an infant that is born alive during or after an attempted abortion.

    Sen. Feinstein deserves more respect than she’s getting. She should be allowed to announce her retirement before people start making moves & telling people.

    I said what I said.

    I’ve repeatedly said they would never stop at Roe and will go after everything back to Griswold. And if some of you who’ve conceived or plan to via IVF think that’s safe? Mkay. Gifted link so all can read.

    I still miss Underground. Not Sci-Fi, but, still cancelled for the same reasons.
    I still believe those two seasons of Underground should be included in any school curriculum about slavery from Grade 7 on up.

    Ratings wasn’t the issue, ‘Lovecraft Country’ and ‘Watchmen’ didn’t get season two due to unexpected impact and imagery.

    Black sci-fi hits different.

    White America was enthralled and the subject matter was too powerful.

    New: House Republicans moved to pre-emptively kill any investigations against its members, gutting the Office of Congressional Ethics just as it was weighing inquiries into lawmakers who defied subpoenas issued by the Jan. 6 committee. @GuardianUS

    What gets me is that she doesn’t have the self-awareness to be GRATEFUL for the $$ she was able to scan from NBC.

    Just imagining how much confidence it took NBC executives to sell the idea of pushing out Tamron Hall to give Megyn Kelly $69 million.

    Like they sat there and thought about it, and were like, this is the move that’ll take NBC to the next level. And they were serious.

    It should not surprise anyone that Elizabeth Warren is endorsing Katie Porter before any Black woman is able to enter the race for a seat in an institution with no Black women in it. If you saw Warren’s campaign up close in South Carolina like I did, you wouldn’t be surprised.
