Obamacare made the ER situation worse. It's tough to find a doctor when you're on Medicaid.

Sunday’s execution-style slayings of two Las Vegas police officers are part of a rising trend of violence against peace officers by right-wing extremists. The Anti-Defamation League said in a press release on Monday that adherents to right-wing ideologies are waging a “de facto war” against police.

“The two police officers who lost their lives are only the latest in a series of casualties in a de facto war being waged against police by right-wing extremists, including both anti-government extremists and white supremacists,” said Mark Pitcavage, ADL Director of Investigative Research.

He continued,“Some extremists have deliberately targeted police, while others have responded violently when meeting police in unplanned encounters. The killings are not the effort of a concerted campaign, but rather a series of independent attacks and clashes stemming from right-wing ideologies.”

You're right, posts don't disappear.
How about we review some of your 'brilliance' in understanding a posters geographic location? Or we could start with your claim that Obama has ¨mended¨ my country? Does your ¨moderate republican¨ definition of mended mean the creation of more government dependents?
And finally, what would a leftist be without accusing someone of posting the old reliable ¨racist nonsense?¨
You're brilliant, alright. A brilliantly dishonest coward who is paranoid and delusional.

Iraqi Militants Seize Government Headquarters In Mosul

""Islamic militants overran much of Iraq's second-largest city of Mosul on Tuesday, seizing the governor's headquarters and rampaging through police stations, military bases and the airport as security forces collapsed and abandoned their posts. Gunmen cruised through neighborhoods, waving black banners while residents fled.

The assault was a heavy defeat for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in the face of a widening insurgency by a breakaway al-Qaida group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The group has been advancing in both Iraq and neighboring Syria, capturing territory in what appears to be a campaign to set up a militant enclave straddling the border.

Earlier this year, Islamic State took control another Iraqi city, Fallujah, in the west of the country, and government forces have been unable to take it back. The far larger Mosul is an even more strategic prize. The city and surrounding Ninevah province are a major export route for Iraqi oil and a gateway to Syria.

In a sign of the weight of the blow, al-Maliki pressed parliament to declare a state of emergency that would grant him greater power, saying the public and government must unite "to confront this vicious attack, which will spare no Iraqi." The parliament speaker called the rout a "disaster by any standard."

Regaining Mosul poses a daunting challenge for the Shiite prime minister. The city has a Sunni Muslim majority and many in the community are already deeply embittered against his Shiite-led government. During the nearly nine-year American presence in the country, Mosul was a major stronghold for al-Qaida and U.S. and Iraqi forces carried out repeated offensives there, regaining a semblance of control but never routing the insurgents entirely.""

So much for Bush's dream of bring American style Democracy to Iraq.

He was warned..........

President Bush today portrayed the war in Iraq as the latest front in the "global democratic revolution" led by the United States. The revolution under former president Ronald Reagan freed the people of Soviet-dominated Europe, he declared, and is destined now to liberate the Middle East as well.

Rather, he put the war in a broader context of the "2,500-year old story of democracy," in the same tradition as the "military and moral" American commitments to restoring democracy to post-War Germany, to protecting Greece from Communism during the Cold War and combating communist domination in Latin America, Europe and Asia, including, he said explicitly, Vietnam.

The nations of the Middle East, he said, are no less entitled to freedom from "despotism" than all the nations liberated in the past. He congratulated the Islamic nations he believes are making at least some progress towards democracy, mentioning Bahrain, Oman, Morocco, Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait and Yemen. And he praised the governments of Egypt, which said "should show the way toward democracy in the Middle East," and Saudi Arabia, which he said is "taking first steps toward reform, including a plan for gradual introduction of elections."

Bush also said "the demand for democracy is strong and broad" in Iran, adding, "The regime in Tehran must heed the democratic demands of the Iranian people or lose its last claim to legitimacy."

and many of you morons believed him. That's why you're so angry now.

Speaking of the illegals and their education. Why not teach them they broke American law when they crossed the border? Teach them when they break the law there is a price to be paid. Teach them there is punishment for illegal acts. The punishment should be expulsion.

Is there a point of any kind you want to make?

Was it the doctor shortage, maybe? Or, something else?

What part of the article do you have a problem with? One tiny sentence that has very little significance with the overall theme of the article. Could that be it?

Something I'd thought possible for a long time.
( Phys.org )—A NASA scientist based at Ames Research Center has compiled a checklist of habitability possibilities for planets or other bodies in the solar system or beyond. In his paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Christopher McKay outlines ways that life could be possible on other planets, moons, or even other bodies.
Research here on Earth, McKay notes, has led to findings that show that life can exist under what would previously have been considered impossible environmental conditions. Thus, it seems logical that what we define as the conditions possible for life existing in other places should expand as well. Not all life forms need the same requirements as most of the life we see around us, some can survive or even thrive in very extreme conditions.
He notes that some types of microorganisms, for example, have been found to live in environments that are consistently well below freezing or well above the boiling point. Thus, it would not make sense to rule out a planet simply because it's too cold or too hot.
He also notes that not all life forms require as much water as was once thought. Some algae, for instance has been found living inside of rocks, where very, very little water is available. Not unlike the water that is trapped in rocks on the moon, as just one example.
The need for light or some other form of energy source might have been overstated as well. Creatures have been found living in the sea, for example, at depths almost beyond where sunlight can penetrate. Might that mean that some planets have been wrongly excluded as possible life holders, simply because they are too far away from their star? No one knows, but perhaps we should start including more of them on our list of possibilities.
There's also the problem of radiation—too much of course and life should not be able to survive—but what about those microbes that have been found living inside of nuclear reactors? Perhaps we've been too narrowly focused in this respect as well.
And finally, being creatures that need a lot of oxygen to survive, it would seem only natural that we would expect other habitable worlds to have it as well. But research has shown that it too isn't always necessary and is sometimes even fatal to some forms of life, such as a type of bacteria living in soil. Nitrogen, on the other hand seems to be far more critical. Perhaps it should be one of our primary clues.
In short, McKay is reminding us that we maybe ought to be more careful in what we exclude when looking for life elsewhere, perhaps now more so than before as our technology improves to the point where we might finally have what we need to actually prove that life does exist out there, somewhere—even if it's in a form we never might have imagined was possible before.
It is important to differentiate between conditions where Life can begin and conditions where Life can evolve.

Just because microbes here on Earth have been found living inside of Nuclear Reactors doesn't necessarily mean that Life can *begin* on a planet bathed in radioactivity. Life on Earth is all about adaptability - Darwin's survival of the fittest - but adaptability has nothing to do with conditions necessary for abiogenesis. A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step but, without legs, a "journey" needs redefinition.

All that McKay speaks of is speculation - an educated one, surely - but still speculation.

None of which is new. This sort of speculation has been written about forever.
