The crux of the medical problem is the Pharmaceuticals. After the AMA was invented, pharmaceuticals controlled pricing and “allowable” medicines. Pharmaceuticals are behind the notion of disallowing over the counter herbal remedies. Follow the money! Then you will see why the cost of all things medical, continue to rise, no matter what is done through legislation (which they lobby for themselves). Did you know, 100 years ago you could buy heroine at your local apothecary? Now, we need the AMA to approve what is acceptable.
Natural ingredients are most often preventative in nature which is good. But we need modern medical doctors when the Sh it hits the fan. It's like on sept 12th, 2001. No one woke up and said, "I wish Al Gore was in charge." My beef with the medical industry is that there is too much cya going on. We really need Tort reform.

Anything on a hard drive is always recoverable, but the more important question is Where did she move those emails to?
You could be accused of believing Obama too, if you think she does not have those historical documents stashed away somewhere. Let’s get out best working on this, surreptitiously, like hiring the best hackers there are, or, get them out of jail to do the job.

So Obama doesn’t think the President has the right to issue executive orders where taxes are concerned yet he do so some 20 times while trying to make Obamacare palatable. But, what’s new? He’s a lying liar.
only a king would say something like that and he ALWAYS LIES ALWAYS PERIOD

It’s all very simple; the theaters charge too much to see a movie. As a child I paid 10 cents then a quarter, and on Saturdays, for a dime you could see 30 cartoons. Now, accounting for inflation, I do not believe a quarter translates into $9.50 – 11.00 to see a movie. Theater owners say they have to up their prices on concessions because they do not make enough money off the ticket price to keep open, SOOO concessions are also sky-high. Result? Stream; wait till it comes out on DVD, or fugitaboutit!
10 cent movie? did you have to turn the crank yourself?
I'll bet you saw the original release of Birth of a Nation!
I love 3D but at an Imax theater we're talking around $16.

Most of the great Thespians are those whose lives have never been revealed. For the most part, they are schizophrenic; they do not have or do not know what a normal life is and often seek help in booze or drugs, which only compounds the problem. For some reason, they have suppressed their childhood and created characters they can live as, so as not to face the truth. If a chemical imbalance is present in a persons brain, it can be repaired but a person must be willing to submit to the tests and the treatment. Robin Williams made a choice to commit suicide, BUT was it the real Robin Williams? we don’t know. Who does? Is there anyone out there that knew Robin Williams the man, and not the many faces he gave us during his acting career?

Folks….it goes to show you, wealth, fame and fortune do not satisfy. If you are not saved; if you do not have God in your life, your life is meaningless.

Ya gotta love those hypocrites; estimated cost of tunnels, $2 billion and who knows how much else is spent on other humanitarian aide like missiles and explosives, some in those UN schools, all for a country “just trying to survive”. Good gravy, through the whole gang out of the USA.

Hey, just get a hold of Zukerberg, and Gates and the rest of those silicone valley dweebs who are the ones wanting these illegals, and ship them all there. Besides giving them employment, they also can afford to feed and house them until they actually draw a pay check.

flood insurance (payable to the feds…..like a new tax). People, people people, get a clue. Do nothing and give our country away to drug addled community organizers and their unions, or find a place to stand, and STAND! Just take a step back and look at what this administration is doing ( and I include his appointed cabinet czars). A high school dropout can see the writing on the wall.
May 31, 2014 at 5:21pm
I am as cynical as they come: ALL of the top cabinet officials are there because they want to same America Obama wants. Cloward and Piven reminds us that in order to destroy the current free market capitalistic system, you first have to overwhelm the system so it collapses; then you can declare the need for martial law, a cessation to elections and implement a dictatorship. It is impossible for me to believe Shinseki was in the dark, when Obama RAN on fixing the VA back in ’08. Everyone knew of the mess it was in then; how can anyone now claim to be ignorant of the problems? IRS, DHS, Benghazi, all of the departments buying up all avaiable ammunition and now the BLM is playing a part in taking over private property; the EPA is issuing new rules so current homw owners in Freddie Mack and Fanny Mae will HAVE

Hey Congressman, it doesn’t work that way. You have just demonstrated you are unfaithful to your wife and distrustful to the people who elected you. You FIRST have to reconcile with your wife, then earn the trust back, incrementally, and maybe then the voters will once again support you.
Do you really think all you have to do is promise to be a nice guy, and all is right again? Schmuck!

I am as conservative as they get; so conservative that I have to agree with B. Beckel; this is none of our business. If the USA had an alliance or some sort of pact like NATO to assist and defend this country, we would then be obligated to assist, even militarily, but we have no such compact withe the Ukraine. Sure, there may be global financial repercussions, but that is why we make pacts with other countries, and we haven’t with the Ukraine.
America is not the worlds’ police. If Europe is not concerned with what Russia is doing in Crimea, than why do we get all flustered? Why doesn’t America care about what is going on in the Sudan, or Uganda, or Egypt or Syria? What is Crimea getting all the attention of the liberal news media and even some of the others like The Blaze?
Relax folks, crap happens, and it happens all over the globe.

Screw these leaches. Mickey D’s ought to just close down, and reopen as Ronnies Place or something else, and re-start the magic. $10.00 dollars to flip a hamburger is not only insane, but soon, people will stop going there since they can get personal service at the sit-down restaurant of their choice, with personal attention and a better atmosphere than people demanding a better wage but not offering any sort of service for that cost which is passed onto the consumer. Now they are arguing for unpaid overtime.
As for me?….even the buffet at the Chinese restaurant is a better deal.
I am getting a little fed up with Ms. Anne Coulter. She is so hot and heavy for Christie and the establishment, she thinks she has come to some sort of an epiphany. Wake up girl, you are starting to look like the also ran in a 2 horse race.
Wow. I love it when people resort to name calling instead of arguing back with facts.
Resorting to name calling and gossiping means you have NO FACTS to back anything up with.
Good job. You MUST be a liberal.

“we will suspend preparatory meetings for the G8 summit” take that Vladimir! What a joke. And this message was no doubt carried by someone at the high level discussions TO the President cause he wasn’t there.
Look, I am sorry about the Ukraine, and sorry about Egypt and sorry about Syria etc, etc but if Europe is not concerned, America needs to keep its nose out of their business. If we has some sort of alliance or agreement to come to a country’s aid, well that’s a different story. But we have no such agreement with the Ukraine. Part of growing up is the need to defend yourself: the Ukraine elected a Russian leaning President so they get what they asked for. If they choose to protest their own election results and the people, then it is up to them to do something about it.
America is not a global police force to be used as anyone sees fit to use it. End of story!!
Zorch: The militant Left does not want to assume the burden of leadership. They prefer to let old KGB Putin take on that role. The radical , international minded / UN Democrats who now control the Democrat Party think American imperialism needs to be punished and apologized for. Am sure Putin will see no need to apologize for Russian imperialism !
Unfortunately we do have an agreement with the Ukraine specifically to defend them from Russia. Clinton signed that agreement in the 90s. I don't know if the Ukrainians have brought that up yet in their talks with Kerry.

Folks, get yourself a copy of “The Kindergarden in Eden, What Modern Liberals Think”. This author, Evan Sayet, wrote a quite succinct work on what is going on in our schools, and this country because of those students of over 40 years, who are now “leaders” and “academics” who are directing our country, and the way they are accomplishing their “get rid of God and Science” agenda in order to “restore” the thinking of all Americans. This is a paper back that can be read in a short day and it will almost scare you to know how you have been complicit in the Liberalizing of America, almost because you cannot help to think any other way, nor can you find the capacity to redirect your thinking to save yourself. It tells why you cannot have an intelligent conversation with these people who see people who disagree with them as the enemy of what they are trying to achieve. They are Professors, News Media Pundits, school teachers and pre-K teachers, who have successfully “brainwashed” our kids.
Their greatest achievement is that those of you who see what I’ve written as offensive, are the “Foot Soldiers” of their agenda, and you CANNOT
February 20, 2014 at 8:42am
Miss Coulter, I believe you just made yourself, irrelevant. It was surprising you were supporting Christie, but now we see your true colors; you are an establishment crony. The idea you would call Tea Party candidates “shysters” is appalling. You obviously do not want to see this country restored or attempted to be restored. On its current trajectory, the Progressives (D’s and R’s alike) will turn us into a Socialist country. You should be questioning why no current Republican is challenging Obama’s abuse of the Constitution, instead you go on television and rant about what you call “shysters”. You my dear lady, disgust me.
February 20, 2014 at 8:27am
kickagrandma and others like her: you are the people who give Christianity a bad name. There isn’t an ounce of Biblical truth in what you believe. It is all “make me feel good” stuff. And quicksdraw is more to the point: where is the message for the rest of the world about Jesus and where you will spend eternity? Besides, “I kiss my guardian angle thingy every day” and as a reward for worshiping idols, God let me get a glimpse of Heaven along with some of my dead relatives: WHAT?! At least the Jew hating, cheating perverted drunk of a husband, Mel Gibson, made a movie for us. But neither case assures me these men are followers of Jesus Christ.
I suppose your " make me feel good " beliefs consist of sittin around with anti 2A folks tryin to dis arm the American people ! This is as futile as your rant about religion!

Ah yes, unions. I once was a very good union rep. (won 75% of my grievances and even one was worth over $1 million dollars). But, history is just that. It tells following generations what was, and why: child labor, long hours, no overtime pay, no benefits etc. That has all changed and it no longer requires unions to get corporations to come to some sort of agreement with its employees. We have all learned we need each other. Unions are no longer needed. Most companies have things like Employee action committees or some variation of that, to bring concerns to management and a forum to discuss grievances etc. We no longer have to threaten to shut down a plant to get what we want, and we no longer cater to the laziest of us at the expense of the rest of us (isn’t that communism). Nor do we limit an individual to a pay increase that every one else gets, no matter how hard some work or how non-productive others are. Communism/Marxism/ Socialism equals Utopianism; it is absolutely unattainable. Why? Because of greed. There will always be someone who wants more, even if he has to take it from another. Even the Elite want more. Look, show me a Socialist/Communist state today that works. There is none; they will always fail. They may work for 2 or 3 generations, but there will always come the day of reckoning; that system runs out of money, out of the payers. Cuba is a perfect example, and now Venezuela. Unions are the back bone for totalitarianism, and it doesn’t work. Good for TN.
