Yep. Self aid and buddy care basics. Stent for drainage/inflation might have worked too. Body of a pen (heck, a rolled up dollar bill will do) works. Depends on circumstances but a lung shot is definitely survivable.
They even covered this in the movie “Three Kings.”

First of all, the relatinship between solar outpur and climate change on the planets is factual, well documented, and consistent with everything we know about physics and the “hard” sciences (those that follow the rules of strong intference and the scientific method). That having been said, the faith system of “Anthropogenic Climate Change” falls far short of “hard science” on a few key areas:
1. The very definition of “the temperatur of the earth” and associated metrics (surface readings from airports mainly) are bogus. Yeah, bogus.
2. While CO2 levels and “aggregate surface temps” are indeed correlated, the funny thing is CO2 levels LAG the changes in temperatures. Huh. So the “cause” happens AFTER the “effect?” Go figure. (The earths climate is a complex adaptive system. CO2 sequestration and release cycles are real. They are an EFFECT or response to increased insolation).
3. The contribution of human activity to CO2 (and other “greenhouse gasses” [sic]) is not even accurarely measurable.
4. Even with all the bogosity in points 1-3, the plain fact is the data doesn’t even show a statistically significant level of warming in any case.
Sooooooooo . . . . as a REAL scientist (one not receiving promotion, tenure, or research payola to support ACC theories) the hwole thing looks like a huge scam.
Very similar to the “ozone thinning” scam run by DuPont and the Sierra Club a few years back.

Regulations. Still mostly legal but price went sky high.
 June 25, 2016 at 2:32pm
10 years ago any citizen could buy a comfortable, light weight, Level III full upper body vest system for about $400. By mail order, no less.
Any geniuses out there want to guess why this IS NO LONGER LEGAL IN AMERICA?
Too pathetic for words. You donated nothing, yet you feel the need to criticize the fact that this selfless man helped buy these two admirable and wonderful creatures of God a house. You epitomize what is wrong with this country and should be ashamed of yourself; truly sad.
Real estate is an investment. In fact, it is one of the least volatile; real estate generally appreciates. It is quite possible that the savings in utilities and repairs at the newer home could offset an increase in taxes.

Finally, an accurate headline.
YES, the CNN staff are indeed REVOLTING.

The British were net PROVIDERS to the EU. Scotland and Ireland were net TAKERS.
Of course they will secede. They cannot stand on their own like the Brits can. Expect Germany to bail next. Germany and the British were carrying the load for the EU welfare state since the beginning.
 June 25, 2016 at 8:09am
What a stupid – and I use the word advisedly – stupid perspective.
How “the EU” feels about it is a minor issue.
How the Obama administration chooses to punish the brits is way more important. Our Boy King WILL punish them.
Also- much more important how Russia, India, and China will react. Economically, this is the time to BUY UK. Go LONG on UK (well, no, not Scottish; they are a welfare state scrambling to get back into the EU) companies RIGHT NOW before the fund managers take all the profit out of this opportunity.
The good news is the skinny Marxist's reign of terror is close to it's merciful conclusion and hopefully we'll get the bust of Churchill returned.

Nobody even tries to do “journalism” any more. Way too many obvious questions unanswered. The most obvious one is “what is the family doing with all the public assistance (EBT, SNAP, etc) they are eligible for?” Are they not eligible for the thousands per month of direct and indirect payments? Why is the “mom” not working? Where is the money from the SS Disability payments going?
Look, only millenial obliviots are unaware that in the vast majority of cases, “hunger” (true hunger, not the DNC/CPUSA definition) is a lifestyle choice in America since the 1970s.
The greatest health threats to the “poor” in the USA are Obesity and drug use. Also, globally our “poor” occupy the third quintile of wealth among ALL PEOPLE. Our “poor” have more wealth than half the residents of this planet.
All of that aside . . . Okay, I get it, the guys a “musician” but what a total waste of the capital raised. “We’re gonna buy you a new house.” Double-F’ing-Face Palm.
BUY THE YOUNG MAN AN EDUCATION (private high school followed by trade school; something of value) FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! A “nice house?” YGBSM.
Exactly!! I couldn't figure out why no one was asking any questions. I thought the whole thing was great at first. But $213,000+?? That money could not only help Chauncey's family, but so many others too. If it comes back that his mom isn't truly disabled, that's a huge kick in the face to people struggling with health issues.

Just like Fast and Furious.
We want to take the rights of citizens to arm themselves taken away.
We make up a lie that bad guys (el narcotraficos or jihadis) can get easy access to guns.
So now we must push illegal guns illegally into the hands of those for whom it is illegal to buy guns.
“Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!” The bad guys got guns. So now we must take away guns from the good guys.

ISANA (Islamic State in North America) is the arm I’m worried about.
June 21, 2016 at 6:47am
The militia will need to take out Google in the very near future . . .
 June 21, 2016 at 6:45am
Indeed. “Well Regulated” in the vernacular of the 1770s meant “organized, trained and equipped for its intended purpose.”
Well regulated farmhold, well regulated sailing vessel, well regulated militia . . . All refer to an organization with the proper resources and conducted in an efficient manner.
“In order to be able to form an effective, efficient militia, the right of every citizen to keep, carry, and train with military weapons appropriate for infantry operations shall not be infringed.”

Once agian, these Blaze “contributors” do nothing to “contribute” other than repeat the same slanted DNC/CPUSA/OFA “fax machined talking points” with ZERO investigation or intellectual curiosity. As other posters have pointed out the so-called Snopes “refutation” was crap; the original CPRC research was indeed valid and has been challenged – but not by any facutla refutation, just the same slanted agitprop opinion this Blaze “contributor” repeats without question.
Apparently 5 minutes on the internet is too much work for such a superior, high-minded “journalist” . . .
 June 20, 2016 at 7:34pm
Please Don’t Feed The Trolls.
Giving in to a bully just encourages them.
 June 20, 2016 at 7:33pm
Bullies do not want the weak to be their equal.
Sociofascists (“progressives”) are bullies.
They themselves however are inherently unable to see their own evil, so they must project it on others.
It has always been, and always will be so.
 June 20, 2016 at 7:31pm
Truth is the criteria.
Biasedness is bull hockey.
He is biased . . . Yes . . . To the truth.
Those who oppose him are biased toward a lie or lies.
 June 20, 2016 at 6:16pm
From being given 135 points on the SATs (it’s called “cultural norming”and yes it is a FACT) to preferential treatment for hiring (“fully qualified and black” beats “best qualified”- it’s THE LAW) to geing paid $1.35 per dollar than equally qualified individuals- just for skin color- BLACK PRIVILEGE is REAL.
That doesn’t even scratch the surface of the cultural biases at work inherent in our society that requires excusing all kinds of bad behavior, public and/or private based on skin color. Those are just the “institutionalized” racism that favors people of color today.
Only a total obliviot would claim not to see the real issue- and it isn’t “white privilege.” Au contraire mon frere.
 June 19, 2016 at 7:52pm
Like we cheer at a baseball game when the opposing pitcher gives up a ton of runs and the coach goes out to the mound . . . “Leave Him In!”
If Fauxcahontas thinks she is being in any way EFFECTIVE in her criticisms. . . “Bless Her Heart.”
LEAVE HER IN!

Also- when the Obama administratin redefined “mass shootings” as 4 or more people shot, the number of “mass shootings” went through the roof.
Drive bys. 90% of so-called “mass shooting events” are gang on gang violence. The administration, as usual, has to change the way things are defined and measured in order to sell their narrative.
