Let's talk about you and your health for a change.
You've either eaten healthy your entire life, excercised every single day and have no family history of chronic diseases or you're just too young for your bad choices and medical hereditary to catch up to you.
I'm guessing it's the latter. Most people always think they're healthy as a horse until around the age of 50 or 55.
How old are you? 49?
I didn't come here making stupid comments about how second hand smoke is not a health hazard.

I never smoked. I'm a few years younger than your guess. My work requires me to be fit, so I do get plenty of exercise, drink in moderation, and do not eat suger. Sugar is a poison, whether you have diabetes or not. It is the primary cause of obesity and diabetes in America. Including yours.

For one with all the health issues you have, you sure are ignorant about the damage you're doing to yourself.

Instead of following common medical advice, you pretend eating sugar and smoking cigarettes is not a problem. To top it off, you spend much time attempting to prove that your bad habits are not a danger to your health and your families health.

I hope your daughter doesn't smoke, you probably did her enough damage by your smoking as she grew up.

Which is likely why you pretend second hand smoke is harmless, because you can't face up to the damage you've done to others in your household with your smoking.

Which is why you end up in hospital after abusing your body.

I feel sorry for you, Carol. You are seriously in denial, on so many levels.

I'm glad you chose to get off your fatazz and run off.

Had I not arrived, I expect you'd be here arguing with Sonic and Lily all day.

They're much gentler on you than I am.

I note you couldn't refute one of my sources, even as I took your attack on the EPA apart, piece by piece.

This was interesting to note:
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, which tracks party representation in the country’s 50 state governments, Democrats now control all three bases of power — the governorship and both houses of the state legislature — in 14 states and Republicans in 23, with only 12 states sharing power. Nebraska’s unicameral legislature is considered nonpartisan.

Deal with what? A president who doesn't listen to the people? A president who won't let a good crisis to go to waste? A president who dismisses half the population and those who represent them?
Never.

The last one to do that was Reagan!!

Unfortunately, republicans were pulled into the "social issue smoke screen to cover-up for failed policies" ruse this time around.
And a few felt so strongly about protecting the unborn, they put their foots in their mouths.
Unfortunately, it goes further that that. What people like Akin and Mourdock were taught in church was a deliberate falsehood generated to sustain the position of opposition to abortion under all circumstances. Their problem was uncritical acceptance of everything they heard from the preacher.

Among things liberals will say this year is former President Bill Clinton had balanced budgets and ran a surplus, which he gave to former President George W. Bush when he took office.

Neither is true. Mr. Clinton never balanced a budget — ever — during his eight years in office and never ran a surplus!

Giving details, Jeff Dunetz, writing at biggovernment.com in October 2011, says the federal government has two types of debt — public debt and intra-government debt.

Public debt, he said, comprises “securities held by investors outside the federal government, including that held by investors, the Federal Reserve System and foreign, state and local governments. Intra-government debt comprises Treasury securities held in accounts administered by the federal government, such as the Social Security Trust Fund.”

The annual federal government budget deficit, or surplus, is the cash difference between government receipts and spending, said Mr. Dunetz, which at that time ignored intra-governmental transfers,“a trick as intra-governmental debt needs to be repaid just like the publicly held debt.” Using a table of U.S. Treasury figures, he explained how Clinton claimed a surplus in three out of his last four years.

Figures in the table showed that in FY1997 (each fiscal year ends on Sept. 30 of that year), public debt was $3.789667 trillion. No surplus was claimed.

In FY1998, public debt was $3.733864 trillion and surplus claimed was $69.2 billion.

In FY1999, public debt was $3.636104 trillion and surplus claimed was $122.7 billion.

In FY2000, public debt was $3.405303 trillion and surplus claimed was $230 billion.

In FY2001, public debt was $3.339310 trillion. No surplus was claimed.

Noting all the figures included public debt but not intra-governmental debt, Mr. Dunetz said what the Clinton administration did was similar to paying one charge card by using another card but ignoring the fact that it was exceeding its limit and was months overdue in payment. In other words, the administration was using one charge card to pay its debt on another card, all the while immersing itself in more and more debt.

Well, people get killed for spying.
And who knows the minds of The Israeli's ( Generals ) really don't trust anybody. Should they?
Should we? Why is Obama so trusting of Putin? Big mistake.
They are Irans closest ally. And Iran doesn't like us much.
Even less when they get their NUKE!
Great Henry Kissinger quote, btw.
PS And if Israel or any other Nation intercepted our transmissions which conflicted with fact and truth, we'd fire and kill too, ally or not.

F ing hilarious, another idiot. We'll stop the "spying" when we stop the billions in aid, ok? Israel owes it's very existence to the US, I'd say a little gratitude was in order.
