Drone Near NYC's JFK Airport Spotted By Pilot; FBI And FAA Investigating
NEW YORK -- The FBI and the Federal Aviation Administration said Tuesday they are investigating a pilot's report that he spotted a small unmanned aircraft near Kennedy Airport.
The Alitalia pilot told controllers that he saw the aircraft as he approached the runway at Kennedy at about 1:15 p.m. Monday. The pilot said the aircraft was 4 to 5 miles southeast of the airport and was flying at an altitude of about 1,500 feet.
The FBI said the aircraft was described as black in color and no more than 3 feet wide with four propellers.

Who spends 10k a year on health care? A family of 4. Lets say each individusl goes to the doctor 6 times a year at $100 a pop. We are at $2400. Each visit results in a prescription that cost $100. We are at $4800. I think a couple of family members would need emergency appendectomies to get close to 10k.

Thanks President Obama Administration-
NEW YORK (Reuters)- The Dow Jones Industrial Average surged to a record high on Tuesday, breaking through levels last seen in 2007 as equities jumped 1 percent in a broad rally.
Investors poured money into blue-chip stocks in expectation of more gains amid signs of a strengthening U.S. economy. With the day's advance, the Dow has gained nearly 9 percent so far this year, ahead of the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Index. Ten of the Dow's 30 component stocks reached new 52-week highs on a day when 418 stocks hit new yearly highs on the New York Stock Exchange.
Analysts said Tuesday's advance was linked less to one specific catalyst and more to the same factors that have been driving the rally this year, namely, attractive valuations and liquidity resulting from the U.S. Federal Reserve's easy monetary policies.
"Just because we're testing old highs doesn't necessarily mean the markets are going to capitulate. The underlying fundamentals still remain in place," said Joseph Tanious, global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds in New York.

The program was a failure, very few people tested positive for drugs, all it did was create a hardship for a single mother to have take a few buses to pay for a test that was negative.
It's all b/s
Think there might be a reason why very few didn't test positive? They knew they wouldn't pass so didn't take the test. Duh! I heard the welfare rolls dropped noticeably after the bill passed with an increase in Georgia.

The Ruling Austerity Consensus

There is a consensus among both major political parties on the need for austerity, said Left Business Observer publisher Doug Henwood.“The only controversy among the ruling elite is, just how much and what kind” of austerity. Meanwhile, U.S. organized labor “has no independent politics, and no independent capacity for thought.”

The device known as a "thorasic endograft" has a beginning cost of about $12,000 and since they are not stockpiled, transportation, usually by helicopter, is often necessary if they are available at all. If they are not available the patient usually dies in surgery while the the surgeons scramble to repair the aorta with pieces of femoral artery while trying to maintain blood flow to the kidneys, colon etc.

If the patient doesn't die, the potential expense for survival is extraordinary and then the continuing health maintenance is beyond extraordinary.

But it's nowhere near as expensive as some cancers or certain other ailments brain tumors, and such.

These normal real life ailments can run into the millions of dollars.

And then there are the various accidents that pop up in life that could require surgeries leading to long term care.
