Maybe they should pay her several million dollars to appear on "The View" to argue the conservative position against the left's favorite loonies, Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O'Donnell.
Probably because, even though some of their storylines drift into leftist territory, their main character, the Tom Selleck police chief, is pretty conservative. I've noticed other shows where the storylines are blatantly leftist are losing viewers, and the ones who try to stay balanced or apolitical have steady viewership. My advice to Hollywood, especially television, is to keep the politics out of the show.
Imagine what the malpractice insurance rates will be if this idea goes through. A doctor decides, based on his best medical judgement and the health information available to him at the time, that Joe Blow can buy a gun. Joe buys a gun and several years later kills someone in anger (or in self-defense). The surviving family of the person killed goes after the doc for malpractice for approving the gun purchase in the first place. Don't think they won't do it. Brilliant idea...not!

Since UNCW is not a particularly high academic institution, there will likely not be a lot of mentally ill -er, disabled - students in Mike's classes. Now, if it was Stanford, Harvard, Yale, MIT or one of the other universities known for having super smart students, the mental illness quotient would go up significantly. I have a relative, a brilliant kid, who went to an Ivy League school. While there he suffered a complete mental breakdown and had to be hospitalized. The docs told us it was not at all unusual for students at that school to have psychotic breaks, but it WAS unusual for family members, especially the parents, to care enough about the kid to show up at the hospital. Once the docs got him stabilized on meds, he went right back to class, finished the four years and graduated. Then he went on to graduate school, where he also graduated. Oddly, while he was able to be successful in a college setting, he seems incapable of working.

Yep! It will definitely go to a black, preferably either a gay black man or a lesbian black woman. No whites need apply, not even if you had a dream once where your grandmother told you your high cheekbones came from some long-ago native American who once had sex with one of your ancestors.

Not only that, but they have gone back to their old, risky, life-threatening behavior EVEN THOUGH, we all know what spreads HIV, we all know there is no cure, we all know that risky behavior is likely to kill them. My gay friends say they enjoy the heightened excitement that anonymous sex with multiple strangers give them, especially when it involves greater risk. Sorry, but that's just crazy.
OF COURSE he's going to accept the results of a stolen election. He stole it! McDaniel should challenge the results in every precinct and find out just how widespread th evoter fraud is in that state. I think he should also run as a write-in candidate in November and see how many votes he can pull away from Cochran. Sure, it will likely mean the Democrat will win, but frankly, in this case, the Republicans deserve to lose.
Actually, it's far easier for a parent to lock up a 17-year-old than an 18-year-old. The problem is then keeping that mentalky ill person, usually a male, locked up after age 18. Once they are 18, they can sign themselves out and there is nothing that parent can do. The docs have to release them once they are stabilized on meds. Of course, once the patient is out of the hospital, they do not have to take the meds anymore. I have a friend whose adult son was suicidal. She took him to the emergency room and, once there, the humiliation he was subjected to because of their "mental illness protocol" was truly frightening. He was stuck in the ER for several days because there was no hospital with a psychiatric bed open. They would not release him to go home with his mom because he admitted when he got there and asked for help that he was suicidal. So he was in limbo, restrained in the ER in a room with an open door and windows in the busiest part of the ER in full view of everyone. Once they found a psychiatric bed halfway across the state, he was treated like a criminal for transport. Once in the hospital they gave him a stronger antidepressant and sent him home.

Yes, it would most likely offend those who think that any display of American patriotism is "jingoistic" and disrespectful of those citizens of all of the nations who have been the victims of our imperialistic foreign policies.
