Make sure you have a couple of hip replacements while you're comatose in the hospital with a terminal case of gangrene...
You wrote all that but didn't answer the intended question?

So I'll ask again.

If you were in the business of cutting costs, a.k.a. Obamacare, would you pay someone to offer "advice" on increasing the costs, a.k.a. end-of-life decisions?

All I complain about is the double standard and the hypocrisy by the left when it comes to Obama's acceleration of drones.

If the same number of innocents were killed in the crossfire under a Bush accelerated drone program, the screaming by the liberal media would be deafening.

But we can hear a pin drop.

Citizens keep building on flood plains, on eroding shorelines, in the path of reoccurring hurricanes, inside of Tornado Alleys, on the sides of hills known for their mudslides......and the American taxpayer keeps on paying for their stupidity while CNN keeps filming their suffering. It sells.
New Orleans sits below sea level and we keep fixing those damned levies and pumps so that the ho's can keep plying their trade on Bourbon Street and the rats don't have to wear Life Vests. New Orleans should have been given back to the fish and the alligators 100 years ago.
Anyone who chooses to live in harm's way should shoulder the exorbitant insurance and Search & Rescue costs or get the hell out.
Except; if you hadn't artificially widened the Mississippi River and deepened it so Governor Huey Long could make a fortune taxing the ship owners every time they came and went up past Baton Rouge and destroyed the natural wetlands , in the process,around New Orleans( the natural wetlands just happened to better protect the city from storm surges then any man-made levees ) you wouldn't be in the climate mess you're in now.

You haven't used Motels in years. Too expensive for someone performing cheap tricks.

Like the time you made love to a Parking Meter for a full hour.

You claim Obama has to read from a teleprompter ,but you're too damn lazy to clean out your ears and listen to what he said . You must be the crazy woman heckler who shouted to President Obama why he won't close Gitmo or explain why three Americans were killed by targeted drone strikes. If she, like you , would have been as tolerant as the President to hear him out then you know that the President agreed with you and patiently had explained both your questions. You'd also know that ,in fact, drone strikes have sharply dropped in the past year as Obama's transition out of Afghanistan for U S troops and the end of the war is completed by the end of the year 2013.( That's the year that you're living in now) But, oh yes, republicans don't like pesky 'facts' getting in the way of their delusional memes.

i'm just so sure no one will ever bring up the fact that she donated to Romney's campaign fund.
not so nonpartisan eh? so why do you think she's in this position? because she thought that the Tea Party was hurting Mitt? or maybe because she was tired of seeing nutjobs spouting far right nonsense about most everything and it was hurting the GOP?
and was it nonpartisan when Bush had nearly every government agency, that could, go after liberals? or am i overstepping by actually remembering past history? bad habit of mine, but i just can't seem to avoid it every time i search for justified comparisons to past administrations. maybe you wingnuts should start pushing for a law to make an internet search with the terms 'Bush did it to' illegal; and those pesky history books will need a Texas style makeover, but hey, a new cause for the right wing nutjobs is always good for FOX ratings.
Haven't found anything that verifies your claims; however, this is from Politico talking about her lawyer.

"Taylor has been involved in several high-profile cases in recent years, including the defense of former IMF President Dominique Strauss-Kahn against criminal assault charges and leading the team that obtained dismissal of claims against former NYSE official and Home Depot co-founder Kenneth Langone, according to the website of his firm, Zuckerman Spaeder.

He has given over $100,000 to Democratic candidates and causes over the years, according to Federal Election Commission records. Taylor donated $57,000 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008 and $10,000 to the Obama Victory Fund 2012 last year."

There is enough blame to go around for past mistakes but, as a good friend of mine once said, the definition of insanity is to keep repeating mistakes while hoping for a better result the next time around.

For one, we DIDN"T HOP anywhere 'over to Libya'--no U S troop deployments in the Libyan civil war to remove Quadhafi--the U S only provided limited air support and Intelligence information to our European allies, the Arab League, U.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

The time has passed for listening patiently to a Community Organizer well known for his falsehoods. Recall when Jason had himself lashed to the mainsail while his shipmates all had wax poured into their ears? It's time for the wax folks. The Siren Song eerily screeching from the mouth of the Magic Negro is something out of a Stephen King novel.

I'm not waiting for "shame on me". I'm outta here and so are millions of other well-meaning Americans. Let the Boy Messiah make a new home for himself in Benghazi - he deserves it.
