“One of our local small farmers reported that a lodge in our nearby national park canceled a big order. These farmers live on tight margins. It's unfair that the petty Washington fights are doing damage to small businesses while the fat cats continue to get paid.”

Betsy Morrison on Oct 1, 2013 at 20:17:59

“As a small business owner, I agree with you totally. Consumer confidence has been fragile since the Bush Recession and the Republicans are doing everything in their power to shatter what confidence is left. The 4th quarter started today which is the most important quarter for many small businesses. The GOP needs to get a clean CR passed as soon as possible and then they need to extend the debit limit way before the ultimate deadline. The American people are sick of this nonsense & deserve better.”

“Suprisingly, cancer can cause neurological symptoms....maybe they are looking into that. It doesn't mean he has cancer. He's the son of the VP, they are exploring everything I would imagine.

A paraneoplastic syndrome is a disease or symptom that is the consequence of the presence of cancer in the body, but is not due to the local presence of cancer cells.[1] These phenomena are mediated by humoral factors (by hormones or cytokines) excreted by tumor cells or by an immune response against the tumor. Paraneoplastic syndromes are typical among middle aged to older patients, and they most commonly present with cancers of the lung, breast, ovaries or lymphatic system (a lymphoma).[2] Sometimes the symptoms of paraneoplastic syndromes show before the diagnosis of a malignancy, which has been hypothesized to relate to the disease pathogenesis. In this paradigm, tumor cells express tissue-restricted antigens (such as neuronal proteins), triggering an anti-tumor immune response which may be partially or, rarely, completely effective[3] in suppressing tumor growth and symptoms.[4][5] Patients then come to clinical attention when this tumor immune response breaks immune tolerance and begins to attack the normal tissue expressing that (e.g. neuronal) protein.
