When Galt is ill enough to waste time on a medical visit, Galt wants a physician who knows he is the best and charges accordingly.
Dedication and self-sacrifice are no substitute for competence.
Many of the best physicians are arrogant bastards, but so what?
So were some of the best lead guitarist, lead singers, basses, and drummers. That was what made them great, unfortunately.

Term limits once was one of the battle cries when demanding change and accountability.

Maybe it's time for another movement and risk being called racists again.

Term limits should be at the top of the republican platform in 2016. If they have any kahunas, it will be.

I'm holding out Rand Paul will be at least one future GOP candidate who puts country before party.

It's my guess moderates and independents would also get behind that candidate.

Surveillance video submitted to a court on Tuesday showed a 76-year-old white Milwaukee man fatally shooting his 13-year-old black neighbor in the chest as the teen’s mother watched.

During opening statements in the trial for John Spooner, jurors saw video of 13-year-old Darius Simmons taking the trash bin in from the street on May 31, 2012. Spooner then confronts the teen on a sidewalk between their homes. He points a pistol at the teen, and then at the boy’s mother as she watches from the porch.

Seconds later, he points the gun back at Simmons’ chest and fires. The boy runs away and a second shot misses.
According to The Associated Press, Simmons’ mother, Patricia Larry, testified the jury that Spooner had told her to call 9-1-1 and that he was going to teach the boy a lesson for stealing.

At the time of the shooting, Spooner explained to police that some shotguns and other items had been stolen from his home and he believed Simmons was to blame.

He admitted shooting the teen, but said that he was at a breaking point after having a lung removed due to cancer, losing his wife, being beaten and burglarized.

Rachel Jeantel maintains that Zimmerman was not facing a potentially life-threatening 'bashing,' but simply a 'whoop ass.'" Here's her quote, from Monday night on CNN: "They don't understand, they understand,'Oh, he would just bash, or was kill.' When somebody bash somebody, like, blood people, trust me, in the area I live, that's not bashing. That's just called 'whoop ass.' You just got your ass whooped. That's what it is."

The point that she was making was that it was Zimmerman's fault for not understanding the cultural context in which he was being attacked. Now, those are not Rachel Jeantel's words. She did not say that Zimmerman "didn't understand the cultural context." What she said was that Zimmerman didn't understand that Trayvon Martin didn't want to kill him. He was just doing a little whoop ass, and Zimmerman overreacted.

Yes, and why didn't the prosecution bring this up? Wasn't he also taking anti depressants and xanax?
Adderall at the max daily dose and Temazepam to sleep, perhaps he was taking other prescription meds as well. Uppers to focus and downers to sleep__sound familiar? It's fair to say that George was a fkn mess, once even leaving a job to escape a wage garnishment because he reneged on a credit card settlement.

His friends were all much older than he, what's up with that and how about his pal Frank who appeared on the HLN comedy hour almost nightly since George's arrest? What a fkn piece of work that clown is. He was on the witness list, it was his window that the youth was supposedly peering into. Imagine that racist stooge sworn to tell the truth. If I had that guy's bio I'd haul azz for a foreign country that would honor HLN checks.

The prosecution could have been more aggressive particularly with law enforcement who created all this nonsense by cutting George loose before they ID'd the body. The thin blue line is real.

It is certainly a step forward by the European Union and long over due. Next is to remove illegal Jewish settlers from the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Then, the peace process can begin.
The "peace process" will never begin until the so-called Palestinians and their puppetmasters acknowledge the right of Israel to exist.

You have to look no further than the present administration and the Senate who seem to hate America as much as, if not more than, their fellow radical liberals.

Exactly. And I believe Zimmerman banged his own head on the concrete to get sympathy. When he arrived at the jail, they didn't even have handcuffs on him and there were no wounds on his head.
Who gets to commit murder and no arrest is made? Kerrrist.
What did the police chief say "Oh, it's just little fatty Georgy playing with his gun again and some negro got in his way, no case"?
Why should he have been handcuffed if not under arrest?

Well, yes, all of that was true.
I have to agree with Yeah, you're a compulsive liar.

You don't know Martin attacked Zimmerman.

You don't know Z didn't have his weapon out or had said he was armed (and maybe that's why M invoked Stand Your Ground?)

Z screaming like a little girl says more about him than whatever M was doing.

The only person who knows the answers to these questions is Zimmerman so unless you're sleeping with him or something then, once again, you're FOS.

Well, none of that is true.
And no one knows exactly what happened that night. Except that Martin attacked Zimmerman and not the other way around.
If Zimmerman had the intent to murder Martin right before the police arrived, he would've pulled out his gun before Martin even had time to break his nose and begin beating him so badly Zimmerman could be heard screaming bloody murder himself for help.
Now hush.

You're a genius
Let me ask you and Homer something. And I really want both of you to respond.

What if a black man had noticed a white teenager acting suspicious in his neighborhood, called the police and then tried to keep an eye on his whereabouts before they arrived...and what if an eye witness saw the white teenager straddling the black man and beating him giving the black man a broken nose, lacerations on the back of his head and two black eyes...and what if the black man had screamed for help and, when help didn't arrive, took out his pocketknife and stabbed the white teenager in self defense.

Would you and Homer be embarrassed because we all know you both would have claimed the black man was acting in self defense and your bias would be exposed?
