Barack Obama, our next President

A Nobel Prize and Millions of Dollars?
In his speech, dubbed, "Earth Has A Fever," Al Gore referred to a prediction by U.S. climate scientist Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic's summer ice could "completely disappear" by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions.
He went on to say that "scientists reported with unprecedented alarm that the North Polar icecap is, in their words,'falling off a cliff.' One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years."
Maslowski himself told members of the American Geophysical Union the same year that the Arctic's summer ice could completely disappear within the decade.
"If anything, our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer... is already too conservative," he said.
Fast-forward to the present day.
Satellite photos of the Arctic taken by NASA in August 2012 and August 2013 show a 60 percent increase in the polar ice sheet, more than half the size of Europe, despite "realistic" predictions by climate scientists six years ago that the North Pole would be completely melted by now.
So basically due to Al Gore's due diligence and getting the word out he saved the Arctic icecap from melting away? Sweet.

By the way, the military is one place where screw-ups are punished. Most likely the commanding officer and possibly others under him will see the end of their military careers.

NON-EMERGENCY TREATMENT
Does your hospital bill the patients and seek judgment against them when they fail to pay, or just not bother?
Foreclose on their homes and/or cars if necessary.
now how are you going to do that if they don't give their correct name and a social security number? How do you think illegals get treated? because they do. No one should ever give their social security number to a hospital anyway--4 million stolen last month in Chicago area from an Advocate Hospital, they just walked in and stole the computers with all the information.

so what did Advocate do? they sent out a letter. Now who is going to pay for all these stolen identities?

Just a note about living wills. If you sign one be sure to give one to your doctor and your lawyer. Also be sure to specify who is to make medical decisions on your behalf. Once you become incompacitated, your next of kin is responsible for making decisions for you. One more thing, be sure to give a copy of your living will to the hospital EVERY time you are admitted because most hospitals will only honor it for that one admission.
A family physician will keep it in your chart. You can give it to your lawyer as well but as long as it's in your medical records, your wishes will be respected nowadays about life and death.

I remember when it wasn't like that. Very hard on the families and people who worked in hospitals like myself. Dead people on machines and physicians and families not knowing whether or not to unplug them and let them die in peace.

Very controversial at one time. The solution seemed pretty simple - a Living Will. Like most problems have an easy solution with just a little common sense, but it up and died a long time ago in this country and someone unplugged the respirator.

No AR15, just handguns. Why does a military facility have "security guards" instead of competent security?

Balancing the federal budget requires many hard decisions, including cutting all programs not legally mandated.
Bah as soon as another Republican becomes president all this 'Balancing the federal budget' talk from aholes like you will go right out the window. And don't tell me you were a lone voice in the wilderness when Bush was president, especially when you voted for him the 2nd time. Let's face it, you're full of crap. Oh, have a nice day.

Even though I disgree w/abortion as a means of ANY sort of "birth control" (as that really is another area-more along dire action for desperate circumstances) because scientifically, fetus's are mutants until around 23 weeks.
And there's really nothing "holy" or good at all about rape, incest, one nighter non committed type of stuff, or ay other type of ignorance in the similar realms.
Because as far as that goes--Life is life, be it moth, a snake, a puppy, a spider or whatever.
Why one ounce of PREVENTION is worth a pund of cure is STILL absolutely the BEST, and most RESPONSIBLE method.
Agree 100% with your last sentence.

Which is what we should be spending the money on - educating about the reality of abortion using public service ads to sway public opinion and make abortion a societal taboo - like smoking.
