Jacques,
Certainly the ER's occasionally see drug OD"s from time to time, but compared to the ravages of alcohol abuse it is an infrequent visitor.
Been there, done that. I would know, I work'd in a level I trauma center.
I always liked working second shift, 3-11.
You see a lot of crazy stuff on that watch.

Girl friend is working tonight so I stopped by McDonald's as they have a chicken wing special. The one I go to (occationally) has mostly a black staff and tonight I told the clerk my new Obama joke by simply asking him if he had heard any new good Obama jokes and he said "no". To which I replied, "I haven't either. All the Obama jokes I hear are too scary"!
He then went on a rant how Obama has done nothing to put any money in his pocket, etc. I have noticed this several times lately, the people who you would think love Obama, are very disillusioned.. It think you Libtards need to wake up!

"So, if only the tuned-in rich insiders reach presidential promise, is it not better to elect the smartest and the brightest, as establishment-committed they may be? That would be Hillary or Biden."
Biden is smart? Are you sure we are on the same planet Jacques? Biden is Dan Quayle smart. As for Barry, we've been told he is smart, but he refuses to let anyone see any of his school records. My guess is he is average at best. He even told us he is lazy from his own lips. Hillary has more private sector experience then Barry, who had none, and she is smart and ruthless. Don't forget she told us that there were WMD's in Iraq, supported regime change, and voted for military intervention. She also accomplished nothing of significance as our Secretary of State besides burning a boat load of carbon emissions on government jets. The only reason the Keystone Pipeline has not been approved is because Warren Buffet has a stranglehold on carting that oil across the country on his train set and continues to buy off the administration. Under a republican administration we would be calling that crony capitalism, but with Barry in charge it's just good politics. The bailouts started under the Bush Administration. Barry broke the law screwing the bond holders in that deal and totally got away with it. Ten years from now our country will still have over 30 million uninsured according to the CBO, so what exactly did he improve? So far, more Americans have lost their existing coverage then previously uninsured have obtained it. Barry was declared liar of the year by politico over the fiasco the democrats created. As for unemployment, if you only consider the U3 rate, then you're not looking at the whole picture. Gas is $3.75 a gallon right now, food prices are through the roof, our currency is losing buying power, but hey, the rich just keep getting richer so all is cool and we keep getting the best politicians that money can buy. What a country!

He's a talk show host "loose", with a show based on political commentary and opinion. Credible or not, he is the top of the mountain in that industry and is more responsible then anybody else in expanding the AM Talk format into national syndication over the last twenty plus years. You're just jealous of his success. Who's next on your hit parade of people you hate?

He's never listened to him Rogue so he's unable to give you an honest answer to that question. "loose" only listens to those he agrees with and then repeats the talking points ad nauseam. If he's been told your opinions differ from his beliefs, then he hates you and attacks you.

Continuing:

“Under the longstanding English common-law principle of jus soli, persons born within the territory of the sovereign (other than children of enemy aliens or foreign diplomats) are citizens from birth. Thus, those persons born within the United States are "natural born citizens" and eligible to be President. Much less certain, however, is whether children born abroad of United States citizens are "natural born citizens" eligible to serve as President ..."---- Edwin Meese, et al, THE HERITAGE GUIDE TO THE CONSTITUTION (2005)[Edwin Meese was Ronald Reagan’s attorney general, and the Heritage Foundation is a well-known Conservative organization.]

"Some birthers imagine that there is a difference between being a “citizen by birth” or a “native citizen” on the one hand and a “natural born” citizen on the other.“Eccentric” is too kind a word for this notion, which is either daft or dishonest. All three terms are identical in meaning."---The Wall Street Journal ( http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297... )

Ankeny v. Governor of Indiana (Indiana 2008 – Appellate Court) ruling:“Based upon the language of Article II, Section 1, Clause 4 and the guidance provided by Wong Kim Ark, we conclude that persons born within the borders of the United States are “natural born Citizens” for Article II, Section 1 purposes, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.”

Tisdale v. Obama (Virginia federal court 2012) ruling:“It is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens.”

Purpura v. Obama (New Jersey 2012) ruling:“No court, federal, state or administrative, has accepted the challengers’ position that Mr. Obama is not a “natural born Citizen” due to the acknowledged fact that his father was born in Kenya and was a British citizen by virtue of the then applicable British Nationality Act. Nor has the fact that Obama had, or may have had, dual citizenship at the time of his birth and thereafter been held to deny him the status of natural born. It is unnecessary to reinvent the wheel here.… The petitioners’ legal position on this issue, however well intentioned, has no merit in law. Thus, accepting for the point of this issue that Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii, he is a ‘natural born Citizen’ regardless of the status of his father.”

Allen v. Obama (Arizona 2012) ruling:“Most importantly, Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent in construing the United States Constitution, Arizona v. Jay J. Garfield Bldg. Co., 39 Ariz. 45, 54, 3 P.2d 983, 986(1931), and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President.… Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1874), does not hold otherwise.”

Farrar (et al.) v. Obama (Georgia 2012) ruling:“In 2009, the Indiana Court of Appeals (“Indiana Court”) addressed facts and issues similar to those before this court.[Ankeny] v. Governor, 916 N.E.2d (Ind. Ct. App. 2009).… The Indiana Court rejected the argument that Mr. Obama was ineligible, stating that children born within the United States are natural born citizens, regardless of the citizenship of their parents.… This Court finds the decision and analysis of [Ankeny] persuasive.”

And on October 1, 2012, the US Supreme Court turned down an appeal of the last of the rulings shown above, the Farrar case, which had ruled that "children born within the United States are natural born citizens, regardless of the citizenship of their parents." By rejecting the appeal, the US Supreme Court allowed the ruling of the lower court to STAND.

For Obskeptic, Scrutiny, Ellen :
I agree and disagree on Obama.
GWB was a total disaster in domestic & foreign policy. He singlehandedly near-bankrupted the U.S. waged 2 losing wars that cost the country over 6000 lives, countless maimed and cost over $3 trillion.. He turned friends into foes and enemies into greater enemies.*********
And you have repeatedly been unable to articulate exactly what BUSH did to cause the economic problems. In fact, Obama is soooo stupid he can not seem to fix what ever Bush screwed up.
How may of our soldiers have died since Obama entered the White House? Did HE not say HE would get us out of those places? Close GITMO in his first year?!?
And it is Obama who has embolden our enemies as they know they can buffalo Obama. And our friends know they can NOT count on us any more!!!

Excuse me for not being hip on terms Jacques, but I don't know what "dixit" means. I'm not sure how you gathered that I was for the war in Iraq from my post, but for the record I despise war. It is the ultimate failure in rational human behavior. Unfortunately history demonstrates that at times it is necessary, so I am for having the strongest and most advanced military of all countries, because without it freedom and liberty is very difficult to defend. My response to 9/11 would have been a careful investigation of who was responsible, and then quickly destroy them wherever they were hiding. Invading a country and nation building is stupid and imperialistic.
And that's precisely why GWB invaded Afghanistan thanksto the strong military that you so espouse and got his ass whipped, to be followed by Iraq for more ass whipping. Why Afghanistan? To kill Bin Laden who, in your very words, "was responsible". Only think is, GWB failed and Obama the "wuss" finished the job for him.

Please google "dixit". It's a common term often found in publications like Time magazine, The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and NY Times.

P.S.: Oh,and 16 of the 18 9/11 terrorists were Saudi. GWB invaded the wrong country, then had their prince at the Texas White House a couple of days after, followed by the exodus of all important Saudis from the U.S. BY AIR even though all civilian flights were prohibited. Hmmm.

P.P.S.: Hmmm - what're you gonna do with your sophisticated armaments against dedicated fanatical suicide bombers and roadside bombs?

Good point, Rogue, except Obama's not running in 2016. Oh, and if he did run (he's not allowed, did you know?- I'm asking as you keep writing how blacks are disillusioned and how Obama is down in the polls - why? HE'S NOT RUNNING IN 2016). For sure, the black vote would drop from 92 to 91%. 1 peercentage point, not 1%.
