The second wave will be the repeal of odumbocare (even the leftist phags on this site know that's going to happen), followed by baruck leaving office in total disgrace as a failure......

"There is a tremendous amount happening at the national level. There’s better surveillance. There’s more investments in research. There’s explorations of new drug-approval pathways. There’s all of these actions happening at a large level.... You have to have active government involvement, and I think there is that."

from your same link: Another reality is there’s not much money to be made in making new antibiotics, so we saw a lot of drug companies who left the field of antibiotic development because of this combination of factors, that it was getting really hard to discover, to develop new antibiotics, and you don’t make a lot of money in selling these drugs, so the market really wasn’t there.

…… You say you can’t make much money. I guess our society took it for granted that antibiotics were relatively cheap compared to chronic-disease drugs, but also isn’t there some economic calculations in these companies as well? Pressures on them? I don’t think they pulled out because they just don’t care anymore, right?

…Infections are not that common compared to other types of conditions like high blood pressure or high cholesterol. It’s a reality that many of the drug companies left this market because of financial realities that are placed on them. These are companies that are for-profit companies, and like you said, they have to answer to people. They have to develop drugs that will make money, and that’s not an antibiotic.

CGI and we said we'd do it for 119, and not it's gonna cost 2000...

"CGI is not a creative free spirit from Jersey City with an impressive mastery of Twitter, but a Canadian corporate behemoth. Indeed, CGI is so Canadian their name is French: Conseillers en Gestion et Informatique. Their most famous government project was for the Canadian Firearms Registry. The registry was estimated to cost in total $119 million, which would be offset by $117 million in fees. That’s a net cost of $2 million. Instead, by 2004 the CBC (Canada’s PBS) was reporting costs of some $2 billion — or a thousand times more expensive."

It's just a guess but I would say that being a "former" General isn't all that easy for some people. I imagine he is pretty vain and probably spoke loudly because he enjoys the attention name dropping accords him.

Oh Canada, gun registering, and CGIs estimates were a bit off...

"...That works out to almost $300 per gun — or somewhat higher than the original estimate for processing a firearm registration of $4.60. Of those $300 gun registrations, Canada’s auditor general reported to parliament that much of the information was either duplicated or wrong in respect to basic information such as names and addresses."

are you stoopid?

"...the skyrocketing cost of the federal gun registry. Auditor General Sheila Fraser has revealed that computer problems and other overruns could propel the project's cost to taxpayers from an original estimate of $2 million to more than $1 billion. Gun-control opponents are saying "I told you so." And even some Liberal MPs are alleging ministerial incompetence and calling for heads to roll."

So anyway, I was watching O'Reilly the other night when he was talking about the University of Colorado banning certain costumes for Halloween because they weren't considered politically correct.

As he and Greg Gutfeld bantered the topic around, I kept saying to O'Reilly, "Tell everyone to wear those exact costumes, O'Reilly...c'mon...say it...just say it...tell everyone in Colorado to wear those same costumes - dress up like Indians and cowboys and wear a sombrero."

And you know what? Not two minutes later, O'Reilly said, "I'd dress up like Pocahontas if I were out there." And then, "Everyone dress up like Pocahontas and wear a sombrero."

That's because we're on the same wavelength. I know. Uncanny. But it's happened before.

"Cheney: Republicans need to look to new generation
Associated Press
By KEN THOMAS 9 hours ago

WASHINGTON (AP)— Dick Cheney said Sunday that Republicans need to look to a new generation of leaders as the party deals with poor approval ratings following the government shutdown.

The former vice president said Republicans have faced challenges before and it's healthy for the party to work to rebuild.

The GOP "got whipped" in the 2012 presidential campaign, when President Barack Obama won re-election over Mitt Romney, and the party needs to build its base of supporters and find "first-class" candidates and turn to a new generation of leaders, Cheney told ABC's "This Week."

"It's not the first time we have had to go down this road and it's basically, I think, healthy for the party to be brought up short, say, OK, now it's time to go to work," Cheney said.

He predicted that his daughter, Liz Cheney, would win her Senate primary challenge against Republican Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming next year. The former vice president said it was "simply not true" that he and Enzi were "fishing buddies," and asserted that Enzi has received the vast majority of his campaign funds from Washington-based political action committees.

"Washington is not going to elect the next senator from Wyoming. The people of Wyoming will elect that senator," Cheney said. He said his daughter's campaign is "going full speed. She's going to win."

Asked to name a prominent Republican who can attract Democrats and independent voters, Cheney said he was "not going to predict or endorse anybody. We've got a long way to go to the next presidential election."..."

Juan Williams Accuses Republicans Of 'Empty Rhetoric' On Obamacare

Fox News analyst Juan Williams hit out at Republicans on Sunday over their opposition to Obamacare.

Williams appeared on a "Fox News Sunday" panel. He responded to Chris Wallace's charge that some Americans are losing their health insurance plans under Obamacare.

"I get the sense that people on the Republican side are enjoying this moment, but this is empty rhetoric," Williams said. He added that some plans are being cancelled because they do not meet Obamacare standards, but that those affected have received offers "for better packages at lower costs with more benefits."

"This is not the apocalypse," Williams added.
