BOSTON -- Republican Sen. Scott Brown has apologized for suggesting Democratic rival Elizabeth Warren used paid actors in political ads defending her legal work in an asbestos lawsuit.

Asked how Warren got family members of asbestos victims to appear in her ads, Brown told the Taunton Daily Gazette on Wednesday that he'd heard they might be paid actors and called people who appear in his ads "regular folks."

Warren condemned the remarks, saying Brown had reached "a new low" and calling his remarks "shameful."

Brown later apologized in a statement, saying he was wrong to have jumped to those conclusions.

A woman who appears in one of the Warren ads, Virginia Jackson, says she was offended by Brown's initial remarks. Her husband died in 1990 of mesothelioma, a cancer linked to asbestos.

<quoted text>There is no such thing as preventative care. The problem is that, we're not preventing anything. We're screening for disease, which means we're often catching it sooner, and therefore, hopefully, sometimes, nipping it in the bud. Getting tested isn't prevention. Getting a negative result isn't prevention. It's getting tested.
But we shouldn't fool ourselves. None of the screening tests actually prevent disease.
Yes, disease is better stopped earlier than later, without a doubt. But it's not prevention. It's slowing or stopping disease.
If there were a truly preventive service, it would be worth billions of dollars. We don't have anything like that yet. The only things we know -- by extensive research -- that prevent or delay disease are behaviors that we ourselves must do. We're using the wrong word and putting too much emphasis -- and possibly too much money -- on the concept of prevention -- especially since it isn't prevention at all.

The bottom line: Adopting a lifestyle that has been proven to help prevent disease? Yes. Americans like you think there is a magic pill to cure a disease-I am assuming you are the same ones that voted for O'bama-and now are buying more of his bull shit. Free of charge, of course.:)
What medical degree have you confirmed? Mittens seems to think the Emergency Room should be the new "Doc in a Box." And you will be in the line of entitled complainers when you have to wait more than 15 minutes to see the physician for your neck pain rated at 10 out of 10 than you've had for two weeks. Oh, and that doctor you see? He will be an international fourth year resident because there are not enough student loans or incentives available for American students to attend medical school. Unless, of course, you are lucky enough to come under my care. Looking forward to treating you. I have a pocket full of Kentucky Jelly just for your exam....

There is a reason they say all these diseases run in the family, it isn't so. It is because of the same behavior-99% of the time.

Q: Did Barack and Michelle Obama “surrender” their law licenses to avoid ethics charges?

A: No. A court official confirms that no public disciplinary proceeding has ever been brought against either of them, contrary to a false Internet rumor. By voluntarily inactivating their licenses, they avoid a requirement to take continuing education classes and pay hundreds of dollars in annual fees. Both could practice law again if they chose to do so.

At least you'll see a doctor.

Lucky for them, huh?

Except we both know it'll be a year or two of appearing on The View, Letterman, and whatever colleges and universities are dumb enough to pay the exorbitant fee to hear The One and wifey whine about how the U.S. is still much too racist.

Oh, and Michelle will no longer be proud of her country.

Oh yes, business as usual:

Six people were arrested Wednesday morning at a north central Illinois plant run by Bain Capital-owned Sensata Technologies, where 170 workers are set to lose their jobs by the end of the year.

The closing of the Sensata plant has turned into an unlikely presidential campaign issue, as the lost manufacturing jobs will be relocated to China. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney helped found Bain Capital, and several workers from Sensata have pleaded with the former Massachusetts governor to intervene at the private equity firm and prevent the offshoring of their jobs, so far without success.

According to 99 Uniting, a progressive group involved with several Sensata employees, the arrestees Wednesday included the mother of a current Sensata worker, as well as a former Sensata worker and her son, all of whom had taken part in a sit-in inside the plant. The Freeport, Ill., police department confirmed to The Huffington Post that six people were arrested in all.

The arrestees had come to the plant to present a manager with a petition regarding the severance packages of soon-to-be-laid-off workers, according to Tom Gaulrapp, who's set to lose his job on Nov. 5. Gaulrapp said they weren't able to meet with a manager, so they refused to leave and sat in the lobby. The police soon arrived.

Coal Miners Take Obama to Task over False Advertising

Ohio coal miners are mad, and they aren't going to take it any more. What's got them spun up? Barack Obama. In a press conference held Friday, miners working for the American Energy Corp. told Obama to stop the "absolute lies" regarding their participation in a Romney campaign event.

As reported by The Intelligencer, miners at the press conference said they were there to "express their opposition to Obama's energy and environmental policies, which they believe threaten their jobs."
