"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I am a fan of Thom Hartmann. I think he is the most intelligence voice on the radio. He endorsed one of my books years ago because I also honored his writing. So what I want this blog to be about is not a critique of Thom but an encouragement for him to change a policy he seems to have in which he ignores, dismisses, avoids or refutes any opportunity to dialogue about the overwhelming facts about 9/11 and the absurd conclusions about it from the official commission.
If this is true, it's very disheartening!
Sadly, few in the liberal or progressive media even want to talk about Israel’s recent murderous attack on the humanitarian aid ships - certainly not Thom. Amy Goodman is an (the only?) exception. She recently showed clips of a video smuggled out by one of the members of the flotilla showing an Israeli trooper pumping 4 bullets into the head of a wounded activist lying prostrate and helpless at his feet. The victim may have been the young man who held U.S. citizenship.
Hi Thom, Right after hosting Thanksgiving dinner last November, I had severe pain in my left arm and shoulder and couldn't raise my arm without pain. My orthopedic doctor diagnosed a frozen shoulder after taking exrays (which didn't show any arthritis). He said there was nothing to do but he "reassured" me he had never seen it last longer than a year. I called a chiropractor who said, with a lot of confidence, that he could take care of it. I was skeptical but went to see him the next day. He used some kind of machine that felt like a heavy tapping on my
I was diagnosed with a frozen shoulder (adhesive capulitis) several years ago. I was told the symptoms usually resolve themselves after 12-18 months, but the pain and limited use of my left arm really restricted my activities. I opted for treatment.
was listening to your lament about your shoulder and felt I might be able to offer a few ways to get some relief.
1. Don't get too loaded up on NSAID's. All these do is mask pain and add scar tissue to an injury if there is one.
2. Warm soak in a whirlpool preceded by a ice pack on the are that hurts worst. Idea is to flush out the bad stuff and that what this promotes. An hour is more than enough to do some good.
3. Massage by a well trained therapist can help get the range of motion back and maybe help to determine exctly what the issue is.
