    Electing Grimes would be a disaster for the Commonwealth of Kentucky and the Senate.

    But she is absolutely correct about one thing: no one has the right to know how she voted in any election. That is the one public policy transaction no politician or anyone else is not on the record about.

    Agreed. But that support does not come from meditative repose gazing at stars. It comes from God and anytime someone substitutes anything for God I have a problem with that.

    We are tonight 21 days out from Duncan’s first visit to the emergency room and his subsequent discharge. If the CDC is correct in maintaining that the incubation period is at most 21 days, then anyone who was in contact with him at the first visit is in the clear.

    He was readmitted on 28 September. That represents the last contact non-medical personnel had with him. That 21 day maximum incubation period runs out this Friday, the 17th. So far no one from that group of friends, relatives or neighbors has fallen ill.

    He died on the 8th of October and was cremated the next day. The 21 day window after his death extends the alleged danger period out to the 30th or so. One person so far that was exposed during that second window of hospitalization has fallen ill.

    Given the number of people exposed at the initial hospital visit and his subsequent three day stay in that apartment, if does not seem like Ebola is very easy to contract since no one from those two large and completely unprotected groups has fallen ill.

    I read the text. but did not watch the video. And unless the video adds something significant to the text, all I can say is that Beck has become an idiot.

    I don’t need a tent in the wilderness under the stars to feel peace. All I need is Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who dwells within me. With God, I am at peace in the greatest of maelstroms, trials, and tribulations this world can throw at me.

    Several times I have been to the edge of death and back with no sense of anxiety at all. Countless other times I could have been at that precipice. I think of such anytime I pass a major auto accident and realize that I was one red light or one slow driver ahead of me from being involved in it.

    God takes care of me even in protecting me against my own stupidity when I don’t fully think things through before I act.

    No matter what the financial conditions may be, I am always secure in knowing that even if I lost everything, it simply does not matter in the long run. God will always provide my basic needs as long as I obey His will.

    And how do I know His will? It’s all right there in the Bible should anyone care to see for themselves.

    The heavens God created are beautiful and magnificent to experience under crystal clear and dark skies, but they are just a reminder of God Himself and have nothing to do with us except to remind us of God and His infinite glory and power.

    Do you know what you call a fly without wings? A walk.

    There is not a single thing in any image or text that is worth anywhere near $23,000. I would be hard pressed to assign experiential value even at 23 hundred.

    Some folks here noted that the hospital probably turned him away initially because he was a foreign national without health insurance. He actually most likely had insurance.

    Liberia has a robust health insurance industry for those who have the means to purchase it. Given that this guy flew to the US it indicates he probably did not live in a bush hut, but had the means to purchase insurance. And Liberia is rapidly moving to a system similar to our Medicare for all its citizens.

  • October 2, 2014 at 1:33am

    Yes it is. Liberia was settled by freed slaves starting in the early 1800s. A huge influx of immigrants made there way there during the balance of that century. Many of them had Anglican names, often taken from their slavemasters.

    There are two different name systems in Liberia. One being the old nativist tribal structure which resembles what is more thought to be African names and the new repatriated name system which is indistinguishable from American names.

    I mean, you do realize that the former president of Liberia was names Charles Taylor, right?

    Why? Did I say I would do it? Hardly not. Violence is a young man’s game. But if it starts, I would not shed a tear having watched hundreds of videos just like this one over the years.

  • September 25, 2014 at 5:34am

    I really hope that. Far too many so-called officers have become a law unto themselves. They kill, they storm, they beat, they lie, they abuse innocent people. Then they get away with it. From the video this idiot clearly appears to be one of those people who have no business existing in rational society.

    The day is coming very soon when people are tired of the Thin Blue Line protecting its psychopaths and will take matters into their own hands.

    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.
