“I'll take my chances. The odds of that happening .000008. I can live with that. I have a 100 times more likelihood of a shark attack, and I am constantly in the ocean. Pray for the inmates souls.....they are going to need it.”
“Fall to Russia? Are you awake? The part of the Ukraine that "fell to Russia" (that's right, I used the past tense) was long ago colonized by Russia with ethnic Russians who don't mind Putin running things for them. We aren't going to do a damn thing about it because the European Union won't allow it. They know who controls the valves on the oil they get and where it comes from. Clue: it isn't the US. We could not produce enough oil to replace the Russians if we wanted to. Even if we did, there is no pipeline to deliver it. This squabble is already over. Get used to it.”
“The last time I was spoken to like that my mother was trying to give me another spoonful of Pablum. Now that I think about it, that's what she was trying to do, wasn't it?
Am I the only one who has noticed that over the years that this "plan" the Republicans keep talking about has never taken any substantive form? Does anyone else besides me think it's about time they trotted it out?”
“Non recovery? Stock market is pretty high the last time I looked. The deficit is lower than when Obama took office. Keep up the tea party line, keep saying it over and over, "There is no recovery. There is no recovery. There is no recovery." I think you have crossed the line from incredulity to idiocy.”
“Just had my gall bladder out yesterday and was talking to the nurse about health care before my operation. I have noticed since my medicare kicked in that it is like private insurance in that they "dissallow" some charges. If I had no insurance, I would be charged the full amount. The reason they do that, I was told, is that it's all part of a constant negotiation where the health care system charges high fees knowing that they won't get it all but when they do, it helps take care of those who either can't or won't pay. I'm pretty sure that this guy figures he has a dog in any fight over how the funds are to be distributed.”

“I don't buy it. If you had your gall bladder taken out you would be resting and be in a lot, of pain. Unless your all doped up.”

“there should be a reason why they disallow the charges. and if the bill comes from the hospital or laboratory or ur doctor's office...... u must ask (not anybody) only you must ask your insurance the reason and not where the bill come from.......i have seen bills brought in by patients in our office. they don't say much why the insurance didn't pay them. had some of the patients didn't come to our office they could have been fooled by those who is sending you bills.”

“Yes, and the government can negotiate for lower drug costs. My mother's drug costs dropped substantially.”
“Actually congress tried to avoid this issure by passing stopgap measure, it sits on Harry Reids desk with 3 other bills he refused to allow a vote on and Obama vowed to veto it anyway. This is all on the Democrats and their dear leader.”
“No, there were a lot of cruder and more unpleasant ways he could have said it. He even left the door open for her to return to the family's good graces at the end with the only qualifier being that she "find" her heart.”
“I am a biker. I ride a Harley, not a stinking rice burner like these posers and I would have run over them too. The difference is that I would have backed up and got some more.”

“I hear you. I'm not a biker but back in college I rode on the back of my boyfriend's bike pretty much everywhere and while it was fun and free and felt great, I was always aware of the vulnerable position we were in. It's smart to show courtesy on the road whether you're a biker, a bicyclist, a pedestrian or in a car.”
“There will be "boots on the ground" they gave him an out when they said no troops on the ground "for the purpose of combat operations".
That leaves the door wide open for "military advisors" who will simply be there to advise the opposition. Of course their hands won't be tied if they are attacked.
If they are attacked, we would naturaly have to rescue them using all means at hand.
Viet Nam was begun with military advisors.
Here we go again folks.”

“Unfortunately you are right. Most people trust the govenment to oversee the drug manufacturers as much as they trust their preachers to tell them what gods will is. The governments only interest in drugs doesn't go much beyond the ones they have made illegal. There is a lot of money in the incarceration business.”

“The pharmaceutic industry has no interest in curing diseases. It would put them out of business. That doesn't mean that all medicines are ineffective.”

“I agree with that. However, most people don't know, and aren't interested in finding out, how dangerous vaccines are, how damaging they are to the immune system, all the diseases and injuries they cause, or what is in them!”

“Did you actually do any research before you made this remark? I did and there IS a book called Sirach! It was not accepted by the reformists but is a part of the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox teachings.
One of the reasons I don't accept any of it is that it is all made up by people so far in antiquity no one can confront them.”

“Yes, it is Apocryphal. But there is no such verse in it. I enjoyed the joke.”
