After claiming Hillary can't win its been 24 hours and Galt still won't tell us who he favors for president in 2016. Its like going into an ice cream store and when asked which flavor he wants he says "I hate vanilla".
Galt never said that Hillary can't win, and it is premature to identify an opponent when the old lady isn't even a candidate yet....

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.
I know what you're going through with the worry. He'll be fine.

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.

You are the reason they have 'Stolen Valor" laws, to keep people from lying about make believe military service..
It happens a lot with people your age. You look back and everything is distorted. You imagine youthful tales of Brave Ulysses while in reality, you were a Dick Cheney type.
But you sure do lie about letting people die for political coverups.

You also lie about targeting Americans for political reasons like suppressing the vote and Tea Party by abusing power with the IRS Scandal.

You also lie so you can pass legislation: "You can keep your doctor"

You - are the worst element America has seen since her birth.

You - are a disease.

Where did you get that information from? I would like to read it.
They knew the fleet left Japan, but I don't think they knew where it went. I believe they were thinking the Philippines.
If you've gotten to this age without having investigated this, you're not very curious, or more likely heavily invested in the existing belief system.

I won't bother, but there's a lot of stuff available. Look to Congressional testimony by the Commanders at Pearl, where the Gov't admitted it had prior knowledge not passed on. Dig in a bit.

You probably think airplanes brought down the Twin Towers.

So why is it that people who express distrust in Govt, like the Teabags, are so willing to believe every piece of propaganda the Gov't feeds them??

Except when it's Obama in charge.

Can you expolain to us what "shall not be infringed" means in the written English language?
How about providing the text from the Constitution that gives the President the authority to excuse anyone from any law.
Then, you can explain what "he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed" means in the written English language.
Give us the text from the Constitution that authorizes the government to establish boundaries on the land where the First Amendment applies, and outside those boundaries the Frist Amendment doesn't apply.
... this should get us started.
The constitution gives powers to the states and Nevada opted to "forever disclaim all right and title to the unappropriated public lands lying within said territory" and agreed that said land would "be and remain at the sole and entire disposition of the United States."

Aren't you the one who is all for state's rights?

The The Enclave Clause found in the Constitution, Article. I. Section. 8., clause 17:

"[The Congress shall have Power] To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever...OVER ALL PLACES PURCHASED (or disclaimed) BY THE CONSENT OF THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE IN WHICH THE SAME SHALL BE, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings" or in this case the protection of sensitive plants and animals.

Utah State Rep. Ken Ivory, arguing for the Federal government to give up Federal land in Utah argued that there is an estimated $150 trillion in mineral resources “locked up in federal lands” across the West — wealth that is desperately needed by struggling American families in a flailing economy." In other words, he doesn't care about the public lands. He wants to destroy them for profit!! Just like Bundy. It's disgusting.

Doesn't seem that serious yet. Keeping a close eye on it. Thanks though for the advice.
What was the size of the melanoma that's giving him problems? What was the depth?? What was the results of testing the cancer?? Are they certain they got it all??

Melanomas come in different varities, some far more dangerous than others.

Make sure he's not subject to one ot Sarah's "Death Panels".

The way you think, you probably believe Obama called the Doctor and told him not to worry about your hubbee.

You might be right.

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.

Which Historians believe FDR knew in advance
and what is their evidence?

That's not borne out by history. They knew exactly where the Japanese Fleet was. They didn't share the information, proven in Congressional Testimony afterwards. Commanders at Pearl were not warned there was an enormous Japanese task force approaching.
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.

WASHINGTON -- In public, House Republicans show few to no cracks in their anti-Obamacare platform. They say they want the law repealed and -- if they deliver their talking points right -- replaced with a conservative alternative.

The GOP mantra is repeated ad nauseam. And when someone deviates from the script, as House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) did days after the 2012 elections, and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) did last week, they quickly backtrack.
Scratch a bit below the surface, however, and the position that House GOP lawmakers take on the health care law becomes cloudier. On their campaign and congressional websites, in fact, a good number of House Republican lawmakers don't actually advocate for repeal at all. An equally healthy chunk of the GOP caucus say they want to get rid of Obamacare, then add that they support some provisions of the law.

Hoping to gain the perspective of a voter searching for basic information on what his or her congressional representative feels about Obamacare, The Huffington Post examined the health care reform section of the campaign website or congressional website for every House Republican running for reelection this year. We broke down our findings into five categories:
1. Repeal the law.
2. Repeal the law and replace it.
3. Reform the law.
4. Avoiding mentioning the law altogether.

you have no idea how impossible it would be to repeal.

And every day it gets harder. Much of Obamacare has nothing to do with individual healthcare policies. It's the behind the scenes work that can't be dismantled.

More than a few Repugnants have admitted so. But you're a Foxbot, lies are what they feed you, you lap it up.
