“What's the point of having congress, why not just have a dictator. In fact why have a senate and house why not just the house they all are doing the same thing. ”

I find it incredible that these people do not have life insurance from the salaries that they get. And most have enough assetts anyway. Why not introduce an assetts test?”

“And their infrastructure was decimated and we spent years there trying to clean it up as well as losing thousands of men and women on both sides. All for a lie, for as we both know the reasons we went in were fabricated.

That sounds pretty darn good to you?”

“It's fine to be skeptical. What's not fine is to obstruct progress on this issue. Congress needs to man up and support our POTUS and SOS on this issue. Enough of the hyper-partisan obstruction.”

“The Republicans have nothing to offer except obstructionism. And their obstructionism in matters like this borders on the treasonous.”

“Like hunger and disease?”

LeavingSouthCarolina on Nov 24, 2013 at 20:46:20

“Anything you care about God cares much more about, but whereas most humans live 40, 60 or 80 years or more, and are primarily concerned about that God's point of view is much greater. In fact one of the 700 plus things that Jesus taught the woman in the book GOD CALLING and it's sequel was that "Your entire life is but a parenthesis in a sentence in a paragraph on a page of the book of your life. Birth opens the parenthesis, death closes it, then back to real-life history..." Jesus went on to tell her to try to remember that when she was going through times of sorrow or suffering or failure, or even times of joy and success, that it is all just a parenthesis. I envision earth life as a school where we all have lessons to learn (why we are here). They mostly vary but some might be similar. Until we learn them we will be faced with them over and over again. However, God gave us and treasures free will. He is not looking for slaves. He can and has warned us of what is coming. Yes, hunger and disease, the destruction of LA, wars and rumors of war, and more than I have room to write. "Seek Me with all your heart," He said long ago, "and you will find me and I will give you the desires of your heart." There is much much more but you have to want it.”

“Reportedly her health had been failing for a while. That's consistent with continued poisoning, no? Maybe her mother had Munchausen syndrome? Odd that her husband would die an identical death six months later...”

JBS on Nov 24, 2013 at 17:11:15

“It's also consistent with self medication and following some quack "health" regimen calling for high doses of certain minerals that include heavy metals to "prevent dietary imbalances". Even a daily "low dose" aspirin can cause anemia in some persons.

I'm guessing that when the autopsy says drugs, it means over the counter medications, rather than illicit drugs (because they'd list the illicit ones separately).

Anemia is a factor that can increase your risk of developing pneumonia. Her husband's death suggests to me that they were following a common dietary regimen & it killed both of them.

They killed themselves, albeit unintentionally.”
