Anything can happen at election time. GWB was re-elected, was he not? Figure that one out. But hell,that's the way it is.
It's why I never make predictions on elections OR the stock market. No one understands the two of them, but you think you do and , well, just look at your prediction record. Yes, the dems will lose one day, maybe in November 2014, maybe in November 2016 or 2018 or 2020. And the stock market WILL some day suffer a serious correction, bound to. But it's about 2 years late now, based on your doomsday predictions.
Eventually, all that you have predicted will come true. Like Jesus who predicted the end of all times. He's 2,000 years late, but hell, it'll surely come some day, thanks no doubt to more and more friendly-user drones carrying nuclear devices, no need to sneak H-bombs in sea containers and have to go through those customs nuisance inspections.
I keep political and economic predictions to myself, as I will not let my sentiments walk all over reality, the way you do. I hope the Dems win in November, of course, but will they? We'll see.
Well, the stock market will correct but we did not know two years ago how long Bernanke would stretch out QE3. We are seven years into the so-called recovery and recessions average every seven years. Most economist think this next recession will be just as bad as the last one as we have never fully recovered because of Obama's progressive agenda.
You Democrats should pray it does not happen just before the November elections as that factor will decide how bad you will lose the midterm election.
But I did noticed you put a question mark after your prediction. Yes, there will always be that unknown factor.but usually midterms swing to the party that is out of power but there are also a lot of other factors which will probably make it a very bad year to be a Democrat.

Facts are facts and sometimes they hurt.
The fact of the matter is that O'Hare Scareport is creating a dead zone for miles and miles around where people no longer want to live and raise happy and healthy families and communities.
They did not move in next to that hell hole. They were there first.
O'Hare is there because of the people, not the other way around.

Fact. Sterling's actions threatened to cost the NBA millions (likely tens of millions)

Fact - the League acted to defend their revenues

Fact - Romper doesn't think it is fair that Sterling accept any consequences because "at least he was honest about how much he doesn't like blacks"

Fact - Romper is even more pathetic than Sterling

How do you get to or leave French Polynesia? By dugout canoes? I hope you do not have a major medical problem that can not be treated where you are because if you do not fly to some place like Sydney Australia to find a world class hospital, why you are just f-ed.

Yep, people were there first. But the GOVERNMENT thought it was more important to build a world class airport so Shitcago could grow. I would rather live near O'Hare than Shitcago's South Side.

Demanding that he be held accountable? No

Stating that he was being held accountable much to the dismay of bigotboy

Bigotboy on the other hand made several posts whining about how unfair it was for a rich bigot to be expected to accept responsibility for themselves

And QE3 has been wittled down the last 3 months now, with no adverse effects. Why?

I agree with your comments on Loose's "location" in French Polynesia. He should be forthright about it. But he doesn't want to, that's his business.

However, I disagree with your comment on medical care over there. French Polynesia is NOT a colony, it is part and parcel of France. All medical care is free to ALL inhabitants and readily available. I understand, if advanced medical care or surgery is not available on the islands,patient will be flown out at gov't cost to nearest facility where it is available. If that's not so, well, I'd gladly take my chances and had you ever visited, you'd know why.

Jacques,
It is in trying times such as these when the sanity of the flying public is callled into question.
If 9/11 didn't get those yo-yo's to stop flying, nothing will until they run out of petrol.

Jacques,
It was not just terrorists who flew those into those planes into buildings full of people, but pilots.
Pilots in training, but pilots none the less.

Again you are saying that there is a recession every seven years. But facts prove you wrong.

The following info shows periods between each recession since 1953:
July 1953- May 1954 (prior recession 3 years 9 months)
August 1957 - April 1958 (3 years 3 months)
April 1960 - February 1961 (2 years)
December 1969- November 1970 (8 years ten months)
November 1973 - March 1975 (3 years)
January 1980 - July 1980 (4 years 10 months)
July 1990 - November 1991 (7 years 8 months)
March 2001 - November 2001 (10 years)
December 2079 - June 2009 (6 years 1 month)

As such, for the last 50 years the periods between recessions ranged anywhere from 2 years to 10 years.

FRENCH POLYNESIA

www.wpro.who.int/countries/pyf/8FRPpro2011_fi...

Excerpt :

3.2 Organization of health services and delivery systems
Both the private and the public health systems deliver curative care.
The hospital system includes five public and four private hospitals, including one for ambulatory treatment and
one for physiotherapy. The public hospitals include: the Main Hospital of French Polynesia (Centre Hospitalier de
Polynésie Française), which is the referral hospital offering emergency services, neurosurgery, oncology and
cardiovascular surgery, including intensive care services; and four hospitals managed by the Health Direction : one
general hospital in the Leeward Islands (Uturoa, Raiatea); one hospital in the Marquesas islands with surgical,
emergency and medical wards (Taioahe, Nuku Hiva); one hospital with a medical ward, an emergency ward and a
long-stay ward in Taravao (Tahiti, Windward Islands); and one hospital with medical and emergency wards in
Moorea (Windward Islands).
Primary health care is also delivered through the private and public systems. The private system is mainly
concentrated on the Windward Islands and the Leeward Islands. However, the number of health professionals
working in the private sector (medical practitioners, nurses, physiotherapists, dentists) whose services are refunded
under the Social Health Insurance scheme, based on agreed fares, is limited. Primary health care is also delivered
through the public sector; 115 public health facilities (dispensaries, medical centres, aid posts) are spread across all
COUNTRY HEALTH INFORMATION PROFILES | 105
archipelagos and are managed by the Health Directorate. On the majority of islands, the public sector is the only
one present, especially in remote and isolated areas.
The whole public health system is under the authority of the Health Directorate, except the Main Hospital of
French Polynesia, which is under the direct authority of the Ministry of Health.
3.3 Health policy, planning and regulatory framework
The latest health plan defining the health policies and priorities of the Ministry of Health was evaluated in 2005 by
the Health Directorate and a number of recommendations were formulated. However, a new health plan has not
yet been prepared.
In terms of planning and regulation of care services, the implementation period for the most recent health
organization scheme has been extended for a further five years, from 2008.
3.4 Health care financing
In 2008, total expenditure on health amounted to US$ 884 million. The government contribution represented
55% of that expenditure, 29% of the country’s total expenditure.
Thanks to a generalized health plan run by social security insurance, the whole population is covered.
The budget for the development of prevention activities comes essentially from the funds for prevention, supplied
by sugar and alcohol taxation, created in 2001. This US$ 13-15 million budget is attributed to prevention activities

I know it is a losing proposition.
But someone has to speak up and lead. So it may as well be me.
