Current the Mexican and the Black person who voted for Trump did so because you liberals are so racists that you identify everyone by their race and sex.

That Mexican and Black person like the rest of us are sick of racial politics. They just want to be Americans, we all just want to be Americans. You liberal need to stop identifying everyone by race and sex.

"'my mother, a physician, returned from China in the late 1970s with pictures of a woman undergoing surgery for removal of a large (think grapefruit size) abdominal tumor with no more anesthesia than acupuncture administered as sort of epidural.'

I don't believe that for one second."

I'm not going to give you the response that came to mind in lieu of letting you explain that comment. Three possibilities here from my perspective:

1. My mother was faked out by her Chinese colleagues (academic physicians) who were secretly using anesthetic drugs, or were themselves duped. 2. I'm a liar (in which case you know what I think) 3. My mother was a liar (in which case you can add the horse you rode in on).

"@Fun A pie in the face okay with you?"

Would it be a shoo fly pie? Or maybe an apple pan dowdy? The kind that make my hips rise up, and my pecker say "howdy."

(Apologies to Dinah Shore).

"Acupuncture is widely documented as effective in good studies"

Systematic reviews of high-quality rigorous studies do not support your conclusion.

"my mother, a physician, returned from China in the late 1970s with pictures of a woman undergoing surgery for removal of a large (think grapefruit size) abdominal tumor with no more anesthesia than acupuncture administered as sort of epidural."

I don't believe that for one second.

"There is some evidence that acupuncture can provide some short-term pain relief, although sham acupuncture (having an untrained individual just poke you wherever, or at non- acupuncture points) provides the same effect, but even then it's probably placebo."

Normally I'm with you on the health BS front (magnets, crystals, copper bracelets etc.) but I think you're way off base here. Acupuncture is widely documented as effective in good studies, as are the efficacy of the related TENS and MicroTENS (Transdermal Electro-Neural Stimulation) units. I haven't looked in quite a while but, last I did the prevailing explanation in Western science was called the "gating theory". The concept was that pain signals traveling along neural pathways were overwhelmed or phased out by induced electrical signals running counter current.

Acupuncture first caught my attention when my mother, a physician, returned from China in the late 1970s with pictures of a woman undergoing surgery for removal of a large (think grapefruit size) abdominal tumor with no more anesthesia than acupuncture administered as sort of epidural. It certainly seemed to be well in excess of what someone could expect from a placebo effect.
