Who Owns You?

I believe that once a person is listed as "terminal" there should be no cure or potential cure that is left untried (assuming the patient agrees & signs off on the treatment & signs a VERY limited "tort" agreement). I don't see this as a license for Medical Professionals or Pharma to start practicing voodoo medicine, but if there is a drug out there that truly shows promise, it should not be withheld because the FDA is screwing around with it. This would have the added benefit of providing some human testing in the process. I also think that various "alternative" or "homeopathic" drugs should be available to "terminal" patients. Not for nothing but ... what could it possibly do? Kill them? If I were terminal I would want the choice.

Libertarians Versus Conservatives

I think that it is OK that we remain the World's Primary Military Provider. I also think it is OK that we act as the "International Police Force". I DON'T THINK that we should be doing it for "free". We are going to continue to have a strong volunteer military (BHO will be thrown out sooner or later) and these men and women NEED to have some "real-time" experience. It costs us tremendous amounts of money to keep Our Military and there are many countries out there who are happy to have us around to keep THEM safe (except when they're burning Our Flag). There must be a way to get these people to pay for the luxury of not having their OWN Military because they are hiding under Ours. I can think of several ways to get them to pay us for this service. Guarding their seas against pirates, their shores, their countries COSTS US. I don't want us to become mercenaries (to the highest bidder) but these people should be defraying ... 75 to 90% of Our Costs. This would enable us to continue to have a very high caliber military, continue to afford the new technologies, continue to "project" Our Presence and continue to quell things from getting out of hand. It would also allow us to be available for disater assistance worldwide. No other Police Force in the History of the World has worked for "free" why should we?
Oh wait ... another ignoramus heard from ... I'm sure you were guzzling the "Global Warming" kool-aid when it was being expounded by know-nothing "Climatologists" who have been prove to be A. WRONG and B. LYING and C. Highly Biased. So now you've switched to Guzzling the Gatorade of "Climate Change" or ... "Global ... We Haven't Gotta Clue but There's Money in Them There Bills!". The "original science" used proved to be faulty and deliberately misrepresented. The NEW "Eco-Horror Show" is equally as bad. If you spent a little bit of time doing some of your own research on the subject (assuming you are of sufficient intelligence to do so) you would find that every one of the "proofs" being offered are baseless and skewed. In fact, if you paid attention at all, you would find that after all the facts have been carefully tabulated and weighed that even NOAA has to admit that all these weather "extremes" are actually NOT "Record Setting" in fact, like it or not, all these "extreme weather" events have added up to a pretty mild set of statistics. I think you confuse the various "Weather" channel's desperate attempt to fill their time slots with whatever "news" they can find with some sort of science. The fact that they can broadcast for hours every anomaly makes it all seem like something new and drastic is happening when all that's really happening is that "weather reporters" now have hundreds of new ways to see things that usually went unnoticed. Kind of ... if a tornado occurs and it takes a week to get there to do a report, is it worth having gone? Did it actually happen?
Unfortunately I think if Obama had urged anyone from any other nation to do anything ... they would have rightfully laughed in his face. This president and his secretary of state has made a joke out of Our Country. Between the two of them they have as many "teeth" as my 90 year old grandmother did when her dentures were out. Actually, I think she had more "teeth" than they do even then.
My immediate thought on this topic. 1. The passengers were knocked out or killed with a gas released into the cabin. Easy enough to do using the air filtration system. 2. The jet has been diverted pretty easy to believe since they flew "between" the satellite images and pretty much all the radars ... including naval. 3. The jet was landed somewhere, the people have been removed and have been put into a mass grave somewhere. 4. The jet has been "re-branded" (graphics and numbers removed or outright changed). 5. The jet is either going to be filled with a massive amount of explosives, radioactive materials, biologically nasty stuff, an EMP device, or some version of all of the above ... or just a whole crew of terrorists but that seems unlikely. 6. As the jet will be taking off from an area where it will have no requirement to be screened for "security" or anti-terrorist reasons, the jet will be inserted into regular traffic at a later time and imitate a regular flight and be indistinguishable from every other jetliner out there. 7. As there will be no-one to argue about what is going on the flight will be innocently passing an area "of interest" where it will suddenly divert and go "BOOM!!!" 8. It might not even require a human hand at the helm and might be detonated remotely. Kidnapping and/or Piracy are no longer credible ... we would have heard something days ago. Crashed into the ocean is not credible too much evidence for it being a manipulated flight. Theft of a jet is not credible, too many downsides and hassles and jets are not that expensive. Theft of a jet for duplication by the Chinese ... no reason. They can get any and all of the technology in that jet at any time with a lot less fuss. The only other thing that makes any sense is that the Aliens took the jet away to "probe" the passengers en mass ... anyone want to take up that thought?
Exactly right. The thing that attracted me to the TEA Party right from the beginning was that they often "vetted" Democrats over Republicans where the democrat was MORE in line with their thought process. I don't care if the candidate for ANY office is a 3-eyed green and purple entity from ... JUPITER as long as they can LEGALLY get on the ballot and will HONESTLY pursue the running of the Government THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN (and hopefully, in the process, TRASH entire books full of Illegally Written and otherwise Unenforceable Laws ... and Eliminate hundreds of Illegal "Government Agencies")
If the TEA Party vetted candidates can "fix" the Republican Party ... can actually CHANGE the direction of the Republican Party to a party Of, For and By "We the People" rather than Of, For and By "Big Business" then that would be EXCELLENT. The Democrats are for a form of Socialism by the Government and the current Republicans are for a "slower" turn to Socialism by the Business Establishment. This Nation was not fought for by Socialists. This Nation was not fought for by Businesses. This Nation was NOT founded to further either of these two extremes. This Nation is OF The People, BY The People and FOR The People. It is NOT to Support the People but to give the People a place where they have all the SAME OPPORTUNITIES to achieve OR fail on the strength of their individual merits. The TEA "Party" may not be the "ne plus ultra" political thought process BUT it is A LOT closer to being FOR The People than anything we have at the moment.
Both Republicans and Democrats are damaging Our Nation and have been doing so for several years. Today, we finally have begun to try to separate "republicans" from RINO's. The TEA Party is not a political party and is not trying to be a political party. They are trying to inject conservative values into BOTH parties although the Democrat Party is obviously a much tougher "nut to crack". RINO's are crying because the TEA Party candidates are forcing them to ... at least ... pretend to be more conservative. The TEA Party candidates are brand new, very junior Representatives and Senators and are, by their very presence, forcing issues to be carefully looked at due to their refusal to agree to lousy policies being floated by both the Democrats and the Republicans. This is what many of us voted them IN for. This is what many of us WANT them to do. The Government is trying to completely run away from the US Citizenry in terms of being responsible to them. They cry that the TEA Party is stopping them and try to make out that they are doing something WRONG. Contrarily, those of us who voted these men and women into place realize that they are doing something completely RIGHT. We must continue to support these people with everything we can ... regardless of what it is. We MUST get more of these people into place. The TEA Party "vetted" candidates are a NEW Phenomenon and they have proven to be much more powerful than most of us would have dared to believe.
Yeah ... no joke there. The GOP has GOT to stop with offering RINO's as an ... COUGH! HACK! ... "Alternative" to anything. They are two sides of the SAME COIN.
Actually I agree with Corbett. Romney AND McCain were & are "evil" perhaps they themselves do not see themselves as such but they are nevertheless. I voted for BOTH of these jerks because I was afraid of EXACTLY what Obama is doing ... although I did not perceive the depths of his BS. If McCain or Romney had "won" we would have lost even more than we have. This would be due to a "softer" more ... a-hem! ... "conservative seeming" slide into the morass that BOTH of Our Established Political Parties are leading us to. Obama, his Administration and his Policies have ... hopefully ... fully awakened the Conservatives and the Independents and all those who truly UNDERSTAND where we were numbly heading and NOW are recoiling in horror. It is sad to say but perhaps AND ONLY PERHAPS Obama and his Garbage have helped to bring US to OUR senses.
Oh ... well ... you're right ... except ... They AREN'T pansies! (wellll ... not in THIS instance) They are following the lead of the Dem/Prog/Lib/Socialists ON PURPOSE!!! The GOP is as happy with this as are the Democrats. That is why the GOP has got to be replaced, repaired or torn out "root and branch" and made anew. I am hoping November sees a huge influx of Hunting Licenses for RINO's and D' Rats!!! I am even willing to accept "No Bag Limits" and Poachers would be Welcome Too!
