    No Mitt, you wouldn’t.

    You are a compromising weasel RINO. You would have gotten government involved on all levels to impose your method of “fixing” everything rather than just letting things be. You may not have treated the office of the Presidency as your launching pad into your personal playground, but you would not have respected the Constitution anymore than Obama has.

    Probably the most effective president this country has ever had was William Harrison who served 32 days before he died and was critically ill during his brief tenure in office.

    Because doctors make mistakes. Because it is wise to get a second or third opinion particularly if the disease is serious or the treatment recommended is potentially dangerous. Because doctors can not possibly keep up with the literature. Because some doctors graduated at the bottom of their class. Because the patient is ultimately in complete control over their treatment plan.

    That’s why.

    Proton beam therapy is NOT an alternative treatment. It is an experimental treatment. There is a huge difference.

    An alternative treatment in medicine involves a therapy that has not been sufficiently tested in double blind studies and peer reviewed. It includes things like herbal medicine, acupuncture, and homeopathy.

    Proton beam treatments have become standard practice for many tumors. Indeed, the Mayo Clinic is about to open up a national cancer center using proton beam therapy. The treatment is in its early stages, though, as a recently new technology. But it has had great success thus far for certain tumor types particularly those in hard to access locations.

    At least Snooky has great hooters.

    It’s taken her this long to determine the poll results and run phrasing past focus groups.

    There are several things that determine the value of a signature. They are:

    • The stature and historical importance of the signer.
    • The nature and history of the document on which the signature is located.
    • The clarity of the signature and condition of the document.
    • The number of authenticated examples of the signature in circulation.
    • The demand for the signature given the number of people collecting that person or articles of an event.

    For example, one would think that an authenticated signature of Babe Ruth would bring a small fortune. And it would if he were stingy with his autograph. But Ruth signed anything that was put in front of him at any time. So the value of his signature is significantly less than what would would think it should be. His cut signature can be had for perhaps $300 to $500 dollars. But put it on a game-used baseball and you’re talking $25,000 and up.

    With Obama the situation changes somewhat due to the autopen. I suspect most of the items he signs are with autopen. So the possession of an actual signature might eventually be a good find and worth some money even though there will be tons of “signed” stuff out there. And since he didn’t go on a book tour, a signed copy of his book might be worth some money one day — if it is his actual signature. That might be one example of where a personally signed book is worth more than just a sig. If it’s personalized, you can be fairly certain that the signature is real and not autopen.

    “Everything in the Human body is ‘soft tissue’ except the skeleton and teeth.”

    I beg to differ, Monk. You forgot one body part….

    We live in a world of white supremacy?!?

    Then how did the two most powerful people in the United States — the President and Attorney General — make it to that status as black men?

    How is it that 20 percent of all government workers are black when their percentage on the population is 14.2%?

    Further, if white supremacy really was the in force, the country would be lily white with some 44 million blacks on their way back to sub-Sarahan Africa.

    Now I am certain that the officer did no wrong. Anytime you get Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton AND Spike Lee on the same side of an issue it confirms their position is completely in error.

    At least you can now be fashionable while robbing a convenience store.

    What is that word I am trying to think of…..

    Nattering itch? No, that’s when you have to scratch.

    Evil witch? Uh uh. Possibly true, but she’s not clothed properly.

    Painful stitch? Perhaps? Nope, no thorn in any ones side here.

    Hmmmm….just missing the right letter here. I Believe I’d Better Behave Before I Bother the Broad.

    They already have that. It’s called Chuck E. Cheese. Avoid at all costs.

    Don’t ever forget that the Crusades were a defensive reaction to the attempted violent Islamic takeover of western society. It’s time for another Crusade. Kill them all this time.

    I would have done the exact same thing as Psaki with one exception. I would have acknowledged the crash up front, then indicated that the subject would be discussed last. That way all the other information needed to be stated could have been and an extended discussion of the crash could then ensue.

    Gives a whole new meaning to the term road kill.

    New York City is comprised of five boroughs: Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and Brooklyn.

    Where things get interesting is on the county level. Each borough of New York City is its own county. New York = Manhattan, Richmond = Staten Island, Kings = Brooklyn, and Bronx and Queens named the same. The county entities have very little political power.

    Yes, lede. That is the spelling of the journalism industry. It is also spelled lead, but that is the secondary variant. It dates back to when type was manually set. That type was made out of lead, so the printing industry adopted the spelling lede to differentiate between the two different uses, each with different pronunciations.

    Israel needs to reclaim the territory it won in the war — al of the Sinai, all of the West Bank, and all of the Golan – then deport all muslims beyond those borders. Any that won’t leave need to be shot. Finally, if any nation attempts incursion into Israel, wipe them off the face of the planet.

    I never have liked Rickles either. And it isn’t that I lack a sense of humor. I just do not like it when a specific individual is picked on for no particular reason beyond elevating the humor quotient of a comedian. Make fun of a group or a creed or a company or political party, fine. But mocking a specific individual — especially if it involves a physical characteristic that is beyond the control of that individual — is just mean.

    Everything Joan Rivers does is mean. She has built her career on it. She is vile as is her daughter.

    By the way, next time you are at a bookstore, pick up her new book and read the first page. You will be stunned at what she wrote. She didn’t just mock Christianity, she mocked Christ.
