In April we met a couple where the fellow was waiting for a lung, had the "Bird Fanciers Lung" version of pulmonary fibrosis. Last Tuesday, saw him working out in rehab, three months past transplant, looked and did great. Friday night we had dinner with them and some other folks, two of whom are six months post transplant, another who is waiting the call, like I am. Pretty encouraging. Of course, you don't get to meet those who didn't make it. ~Bob

unions protesting outside their place of employment. They do it all the time...and
sometimes it is pretty nasty. But I have never seen the level of hatred and the
horrible invectives shouted at Cosmo customers as they entered the hotel.

VIDEO: Flashback to June: Obama Lied About NSA Collection of Email Information on Americans.
Excerpt: Given this administration’s proclivity for using the arms of the government to attack those who question, from Tea Party groups to journalists, this can give one pause. So how do they get away with this, since the “F” in FISA is supposed to mean “Foreign”, that this type of surveillance is supposed to be limited to foreigners, and not Americans? It depends on what “is” means… As is noted in the following video, many of the servers containing the lists are located oversees. So when the servers transfer that information to the people in the

Excerpt: It is a well-known fact that the al-Qaeda handbook urges its followers to exploit the West's liberal legal system to sow discord, and the legal actions brought against the military in the past two years have certainly had the effect of damaging the morale of our service men and women who, quite apart from accepting the risks involved in undertaking combat operations, must now face the prospect of having to justify their actions before a court of law. No wonder Ministers are cautious about committing ground forces to military action.
A debt-ceiling hiccup on the way to a 21st-century American world order. By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard
Excerpt: We can all agree that this is no way for an AAA country [like the

affairs, but looking around the world I cannot see a single country of global
importance that runs its affairs well. (In case you cite Germany, let me say
that Germany is being rather badly run, for reasons that will become clear
within a decade, when the verdict is delivered on its failure to fashion a
coherent energy policy, and on its handling of Europe North-South currency
crisis, and indeed on its chronic inability to balance its external accounts,
and its abysmal real wage growth for the last decade.) USA
UK: What's fuelling the food bank frenzy? The hunger for publicity of anti-poverty groups. By Brendon O'Neill
Excerpt: Today’s food banks are not fuelled by the needs of the poor so much as by the needs of charities and campaigners. I think the main beneficiaries of the fashion for opening food banks, and for press-releasing these openings to every media outlet in the land, are the poverty industry rather than the poor. The poverty industry is made up of those campaigners who depend, for their very existence, on the idea that there exist hordes of helpless, hapless poor folk – and so the more these campaigners can fuel that idea, the better.

Obamacare seeks to segregate patients, doctors by race
Excerpt: “Research suggests that health care providers’ diagnostic and treatment decisions, as well as their feelings about patients, are influenced by patients’ race or ethnicity,” the CAP report reads. “Several studies have shown that racial concordance is substantially and positively related to patient satisfaction.”… Ultimately, these taxpayer-funded grants would provide scholarships and loan forgiveness for minorities so they could provide healthcare services exclusively to their own race or ethnicity.
As Worries Over the Power Grid Rise, a Drill Will Simulate a Knockout Blow
Excerpt: One goal of the drill, called GridEx II, is to explore how governments would react as the loss of the grid crippled the supply chain for everyday necessities….Preparation for the November drill comes as Congress is debating laws that could impose new standards to protect the grid from cyberattacks, but many in the industry, some of whom would like such rules, doubt that they can pass. The drill is also being planned as conferences, studies and even works of fiction are raising near-apocalyptic visions of catastrophes involving the grid.

The Art of the Impossible: The strategy to repeal Obamacare by winning serial elections is not even a Hail Mary pass.
Excerpt: Politics, Jonah aptly observes, is the art of the possible, and McConnell had “no good options” when he led the GOP cave-in to all of President Obama’s demands — a decision that, McConnell insists, was not in any way influenced by the tidy $3 billion earmark thrown in for one of his pet Kentucky boondoggles. I agree that we must be realistic about what was achievable in the Obamacare battle. … Aren’t we also obliged to be realistic about the options available to the Republicans who took seriously their campaign promises to do everything within their power — which includes their constitutional power of the purse — to stop Obamacare?

Lessons from the Shutdown
Excerpt: Well, the “government shutdown” is finally over. If you were like me, you were probably wondering how the government can be considered “shut down” if the NSA is still spying on us, the IRS is still auditing us, and the President hadn’t been kicked out of HIS house (which, if you will remember, also sits on federal land). All in all, the shutdown was not nearly as destructive as we had heard it would be. (Makes my point. Regime discriminated. Regime threw elderly whites out of the homes they owned on
Lake Mead but allowed black POTUS and FLOTUS to
remain in White House, which they do NOT own, but on federal property. --Barb)
Excerpt: These attacks are especially troubling considering their timing ahead of a massive joint power grid drill scheduled for next month to include theU.S.,
Canada and Mexico. The GridEx II grid security exercise set
for November 13-14 will involve FBI antiterrorism units, National Guard,
thousands of utility workers and business executives, as well as government
officials from all three nations to simulate widespread grid takedown
scenarios. More troubling is a sudden talking point shift to the
vulnerability of the U.S. power grid by multiple government officials,
including outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who
recently issued an ‘open letter’ to her
successor warning that a cyber or physical event that takes out
the power grid will occur — stating that it is not a question of
"if" but "when".

scientists yet don’t know how to save them. Moose populations across swaths of

unprecedented rate, imperiling fragile ecosystems and putting the moose tourism
industry on edge, the New York Times reported. But though scientists have a
long list of culprits – disease; climate change; over-hunting – it’s not clear
just what is causing moose to die in droves. (So the big game hunters kill

BREAST IRONING: Girls ‘have chests flattened out’ to disguise the onset of puberty

CEA asks CERC to expedite tightening of power grids' frequency. Move comes against the backdrop of the govt working on integrating Southern electricity Grid with rest of the country.
Excerpt: "It has been felt that before synchronisation of NEW grid and SR (Southern Regional) grid, it would be desirable to narrow down the operating frequency band so as to reduce requirement of balancing power," Central Electricity Authority (CEA) said in a recent communication to CERC. CEA is the apex planning body for the power sector while Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC) is the sectoral regulator….

Excerpt: Can Barack Hussein Obama ever get out in front and lead, without tripping over himself? Just as he poisoned the well with Republicans by ramming through a wasteful stimulus bill, poisoned it further with ramming Obamacare down America's throat, Obama has again sparked a new political war with his pick for the next Secretary of Homeland Security. As Obama plots to grant amnesty to 30 million illegal Mexicans you would think he would at least put up a good front and nominate someone for Homeland Security who would espouse to be a "border hawk". Quite the contrary; Obama has trotted out Jeh Johnson, White House insider, and lawyer specializing in liberal social reform.

initially pleaded guilty to raping an 11-year-old girl, but later tried to change his plea to “not guilty” at his sentencing

preferred black men, Carrasquillo decided to take “revenge” on black people
by getting high on cocaine and PCP and brutally raping the 11-year-old “in
every way imaginable.”
