Both parties are guilty of this, all they ever think of is the next fund raiser. Our Fund Raiser In Chief is proof of that.
lamar has the backing of the dem party as well with cross over voting. Same thing that happened with McDaniels. It behooves them to keep him as he votes 62% their way.
Flinn is not known out side Shelby Co, not running much of a campaign. Carr has had little W TN exposure, the few times he's been on this end of the state were RSVP. The last one was open, but not widely known, not even to those on news letter until just hrs before, left no room for people to make plans to go. The rest were night time. So drawing from rural areas in Fayette, Tipton as well as Shelby Co. was not going to happen with Seniors. He did not do a major pitch to the Retired Military community that comprise this 4 county area. He ran a state reps race, in my opinion not a statewide for US Senate race. Yes, he is the better candidate voting record wise. But not getting your message out is not good. lamar is as 62% dem voter. When lamar ran that anti 0'care ad, Carr should have counter with lamar being the1 who voted to let the beast out of committee, thus making it able to become law. That cloture vote let it out. Carr concentrated on Mid to East TN. Memphis is a lost cause to GOP, but the rest of Shelby Co is more conservative. With a Navy base in Millington, TN. That would have drawn the Retired Military to day time campaign stops.
My dad died over 20 yrs ago as a VA Patient. He went faithfully to every appointment. They did chest xrays every 3 months, and "missed" the Lung Cancer until it was past treatment stage. Gave him 6 weeks, sent him home with a Hospice phone number, and that was that. He lived 3 months, actually died of a OD of pain med the hospice people administered. We are starting to see the same incompetence in civie hospitals. Along with Mooch's food for kids meals. I dread to think what will happen with the full implementation of 0'care is put into effect. Lots of invasive questions, they even want to know when you had your last flu shot. Will we be forced to take medicines for health conditions even if we react to the drugs? As hubby is retired Military over 65 on Tricare Life, gov't controls all our medical from meds to test. I have OP, Medicare just restricted bone density testing to every 2 years. Now there is not enough monitoring of the condition. Nor is the base line done soon enough to ward it off. First Bone Density test should be done with First Mammogram as a base line, and repeated as needed by the patient. Not by government's interference between patient and doctor treatment as many women will start to develop bone density issues shortly after menopause. You men are reduced to a PSA every 2 yrs. I don't expect that all the cost be picked up, but there should be a co-pay arrangement for the expensive items like glasses, hearing aids. That really do a big hit job on a Senior's wallet.

Women Ordered to Stop Praying Inside Mall

No one can stop me from quietly bowing my head and silently thanking GOD for what He has provided. That is my 1st Amendment right. And if Muslims can openly pray 5 times a day what is to stop me, I have the same right to challenge it. And if they allow other religions to continue to do so, they can't shut Christians down, that is DISCRIMINATION! Let this mall try this tactic with Muslims. And watch the LAW SUITS FLY!
Meet Express Scripts, with the known fraud how did they get this extremely Lucrative Federal DOD Contract for ALL Senior Retired Military daily meds? With there record of customer service it makes it worse.

You can apply the same to the fact we have not built a new oil refinery since the 70's, yet your population has grown many times over since then. As hubby is Ret Navy over 65, we are both Medicare with it's restrictions and cuts, and Tricare Life, which came with a new DOD MANDATE on daily meds. Use Military Base Dispensary or Express Scripts! Very cumbersome process. Our Base filled meds are refilled out of Pensacola, FL. We live in TN. 5 day wait. ES is 3 weeks first fill, 2 weeks refills. SHOVED into our mail box, NOT SIGNED FOR. We are not talking cheap drugs, those we get at the base, but drugs that for 3 months cost close to $2 K retail. We have children and teens in the neighborhood. Adult meds and kids don't mix well. It is not a wide known factor since this is just since 4/14/14. With neither system guaranteeing that a Dispense As Written script will be that. And I have to inspect my Synthroid each time we fill as it is a DAW script. Every thing is either rationed, generic, or some needed test have been moved to 2 yrs apart, and Nerve Blocks have been rationed to 3 per year. That is bad news for those with severe back pain that Blocks help. Lack of yearly bone density testing hits OP patients hard. We need yearly monitoring. And the first baseline Bone Density should be same as for a Mammogram. Then repeat every 2 yrs unless their is a family history of it. Then it should be yearly just like a Mammo. A lot of the worse OP could be prevented.
Should that not be ocean front property in Death Valley which is a desert? not FL which actually does have beaches. My eldest who is a Type 2 Diabetic, lost his full time, health ins job, and is now is working PT, no health ins. so his Stage 3 cancer Breast stricken wife, can get breast and cervical Medicaid from Indiana, and their 12 year old gets regular Medicaid. BTW he is a US Citizen, and he can't get Medicaid to treat his Type 2 diabetes. If he works more hours she loses her Cancer treatments. This is what the dems and RINOS have done to this country. And for those that say a RINO is the lesser of 2 evils they need to check their voting records. lamar alexander TN votes with the demORATS 62% of the time. Breaking his oath to only run 2 terms is seeking a third, he LOVES the perks so much.
It's that time of the year, SCHOOL, a lot of districts lay off certain school employees, and hire them back a couple of weeks before school is due to open. Then you have this factor ILLEGALS are taking more and more under the table cash jobs. To boost the amount the gov't gives them. While our Veterans, Seniors and our children do with out, and Chickenpox, Measles, Mumps, TB, Scabies, Ebola, MERS, MERSA and Malaria are appearing in these camps. Chicken pox outbreak puts illegal immigrant facility on lockdown http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/jul/30/chicken-pox-illegal-immigrant-facility-lockdown/ Not the photo in the link, that is a grey haired OLD MAN, not a child. http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Texas/2014/07/29/Collect-More-Than-7-2-k-Per-Month-for-Fostering-Adult-Illegal-Aliens Shock: 80% of U.S. population growth is from immigrants, resources being sucked dry http://washingtonexaminer.com/shock-80-of-u.s.-population-growth-is-from-immigrants-resources-being-sucked-dry/article/2551464
It is what the RINOS want. Amnesty Lite, with more money pouring out of our wallets to pay for it. Illegals work under the table for cash. Only taxes they pay are sales taxes. ON their smokes and booze. No taxes on EBT cards.
