I know veterans who drive over 400 miles, round trip, (still) to see doctors. On what grounds do these loons think their drive to an abortion clinic is unconstitutional? Folks it is a long, long way between towns in the west. Suck it up if you want to kill a baby.
I don't know. FBI is a creative bunch and a finding of an industrial accident wouldn't surprise me.
Talking heads keep talking about the many ways, besides a porous border, that terrorists can come into the US. The point missed is what they bring with them. Besides disease and knives, other items might be Stinger Missiles, anthrax, or dirty bomb nuclear material.
What do we get if Republicans win the Senates? Recall that Republicans gave W a Congress. In return, Republicans gave its base a new entitlement and the greatest growth in government until Obama. The historical record doesn't support Hunter's narrative.
If skeet shooting is a qualification for the Senate then shooting, dressing, and cooking moose should be a qualification for president.

It is worse than nothing. All as you say, but next comes wage inflation. As wages increase it pushes people into higher tax brackets, which results in more hard earned money going to the government to fund their lunacy, such as the shrimp on a treadmill.

According to the Law of Supply and Demand an increase in price, including labor, results in a reduction in demand. The high unemployment rate of low-skilled workers is evidence the minimum wage is too high now. Either politicians understand the simple facts and are cynically pushing this out of unfettered self interest or they are idiots. We are talking about liberals pushing for higher minimum wage, thus ...
Brain burp. He sees his oncologist and gets his tests every 3 months. That is four times a year for a total of eight visits.
Watch for phony statistics shortly. From a friend of mine, who is battling cancer and has back troubles who uses the nearest VA facility that is 250 miles away. He was seeing his primary care physician once a year and his oncologist twice a year. He waited two years for a back surgery that didn't fix his problem. That was pre-VA Scandal. Now, his primary care physician sees him twice a year and his oncologist three times a year. He also gets tests three times a year, but for some reason the VA isn't coordinating his tests with his oncologist. Thus he went from 3 trips a year to the VA to 10 trips per year. I asked about getting this done locally. He told me that part of the VA changes hasn't been implemented yet, but he expected reimbursements to be so low that local medical facilities won't take it. I expect to see greatly improved statistics shortly, and suspect they will be a complete fabrication.

One thought is to constrain Congress from passing laws that favor segments. Better would be to make Washington irrelevant in the lives of Americans. The Founders federal government consumed less than 5% of GDP; the current federal government consumes 25% of GDP and then takes more from the economy with regulations and mandates. The second thing to do is to eliminate the IRS and get to one single tax. Better still would be to make the states the tax collectors and let them fund Washington. Do those things and Washington will be irrelevant.
