If you think it's a coincidence that there were no Aircraft Carriers at Pearl Harbor when it was attacked, I've got a bridge to sell you.
It was no sneak attack. It was a sacrifial lamb to get us into the war. We do it all the time.

Put down the meth pipe, Flo.

You say a lot of stupid stuff, but let's see some proof of ""TONS of WMD's were confiscated in Iraq, on a daily basis, Patrick.""

Because both Bush and Cheney admitted they were wrong about the WMD's.

More Than 8 Million Have Signed Up For Obamacare,
""Just over 8 million individuals signed up for health insurance via the Obamacare exchanges through April 19, according to an official report from the Department of Health and Human Services that confirms an announcement made by President Barack Obama last month.
During the six-plus months of the first open enrollment period for these marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act, 8.02 million people chose a health plan. Sign-ups surged during March and April, when 3.8 million signed up for private coverage through the exchanges, according to the department's report. That total represents 47 percent of all enrollments.""

You're too gullible for your own good. That number proves nothing. 8 million just sounded credible enough for liberals such as yourself to believe and the rest of us to simply question. 10 million would have been too hard to pull off.

They predicted 7 million and said 8 million. Close enough for the gullible to believe.

How many of those weren't insured or on Medicare before? No mention of that either.

Show me.

You want to buy the official line, be my guest.

American submarines hasd spotted the Japanese Fleet 3 days out. The JApanese maintained radio silence, th eAmerican subs didn't.

""On Sunday, December 7, 1941, Japan launched a sneak attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor, shattering the peace of a beautiful Hawaiian morning and leaving much of the fleet broken and burning. The destruction and death that the Japanese military visited upon Pearl Harbor that day — 18 naval vessels (including eight battleships) sunk or heavily damaged, 188 planes destroyed, over 2,000 servicemen killed — were exacerbated by the fact that American commanders in Hawaii were caught by surprise. But that was not the case in Washington.

Comprehensive research has shown not only that Washington knew in advance of the attack, but that it deliberately withheld its foreknowledge from our commanders in Hawaii in the hope that the "surprise" attack would catapult the U.S. into World War II. Oliver Lyttleton, British Minister of Production, stated in 1944: "Japan was provoked into attacking America at Pearl Harbor. It is a travesty of history to say that America was forced into the war."

Although FDR desired to directly involve the United States in the Second World War, his intentions sharply contradicted his public pronouncements. A pre-war Gallup poll showed 88 percent of Americans opposed U.S. involvement in the European war. Citizens realized that U.S. participation in World War I had not made a better world, and in a 1940 (election-year) speech, Roosevelt typically stated: "I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars."

You buy the bullshit. We haven't gotten into any war by accident or sneak attack.

Palestine existed thousands of years ago. It's Isreal that never existed as a country until they decided to invade Palestine and self-declare the State of Israel. Even today, there are 32 member countries in the United Nations that do not recognize the State of Israel.

Free advice, Carol.
Treat your doctors like you would your mechanic or painter and DEMAND treatment. Truth is NOBODY cares about your husband like you do. You are paying for a service. Demand the best.
Call twenty fkn times an hour if you have too. It is in fact a matter of life or death whether now or later.
Should have said the nurse did call back yesterday. But the wound looks bad again today and we didn't get a call back today.

Have no problem being the squeaky wheel and getting oil when necessary.

Surgeons just aren't in their offices like medical doctors. They're usually in the OR and in the office only a few days a week. Will call our family doctor first and then see an ER physician if we have to.

But are you the dem we all know? Being nice?

They knew the fleet left Japan, but I don't think they knew where it went. I believe they were thinking the Philippines.

let me repeat that.... DO NOT feel guilty about it or it will not be "your" time. you cannot be a good caregiver when you hate what you are doing and yes, that can happen even when taking care of someone you love even more than yourself....(actually, that is the problem, you forget yourself and end up not taking care of yourself so you can do your job...)

It's really not that bad. He stays off the leg as much as possible but can get around. It's more mentally exhausting for me worrying about one of his surgical sites now and the upcoming PET scan. But anytime your routine changes abruptly, it can get a little stressful.

But thanks for caring anyway. Really.

In today's press briefing, Jay Carney was asked about the number of Obamacare premium payments that have been made. In other words, the total number of people actually, factually covered, not including window shoppers and unpaid accounts.
"We dispute their numbers. We don't have hard, concrete numbers, but we dispute them," the press secretary reasonably explained.
The question followed a report from the House Energy Committee on how many enrollees had actually paid for their chosen Obamacare plans. The report stated,“as of April 15, 2014, only 67 percent of individuals and families that had selected a health plan in the federally facilitated marketplace had paid their first month’s premium and therefore completed the enrollment process.” Just one quarter of those who had paid into the system were young people aged 18 to 34 – the group the Obama administration most requires to sign up in order to provide solvency to the failing system. The bulk of those who signed up came from the 35-64 age group.
Carney says this is not data that is traditionally shared with government and emphasizes that the data is coming from "profit-making" companies. Chuck Todd was asking specifically about how many people included in the White House's own reported numbers as successful Obamacare enrollees - the number 8 million that is being touted and bragged about every day - aren't actually covered by insurance at this time, and whether that might change their success line by up to or in excess of one million people.
Carney's answer is that he doesn't know, but also no. They don't have the answer, but they dispute the answer anyone else might have. That's like having your cake and denying it, too.
"John Galt"
I believe you are wrong. The nobama numbers has the numbers. They know more than 1/3 of those who signed up have not paid a dime, they know that less than 25% of the young and healthy have signed up. They just do not want the public to know. Their coming off as ignorant to the facts is better than admitting nobamakare is a disaster. Democrats in tough races know that nobamakare is a disaster and are running from it.

Wanted to take him to the ER tonight to be on the safe side but he insisted on waiting until tomorrow and, hopefully, see our family physician. Surgeon won't be in the office tomorrow.

Doesn't seem that serious yet. Keeping a close eye on it. Thanks though for the advice.
