New courthouse could be a catalyst in our town
Voters had their chance in 2007...
Why can't anyone start a civil, intelligent discussion online anymore?
Me, too! Missed it!
I thought using the Mayor's picture vs. one of "land" was odd, too. But, yes, is good news. Finally!
Perhaps you all missed a crucial point of her letter. As she wrote, "The “treatment” being advocated has not been approved by the FDA, has had no legitimate testing, and the medication is being used off-label, meaning used for purpose for which it was not approved." It has been widely reported that this is a completely unproven method to use to halt an abortion. So, it IS reckless to have "more information" if the information is - as in this case - completely unproven.
Anything that helps these kids feel pride in themselves and what they are doing is worth it in my opinion. Small price to pay for them to become adults with self-esteem.
"Pocket change?" Seriously?!
A person with a chronic illness cannot receive care that "corrects" the problem because it is a chronic illness/disease! It goes on & on & on & on...until that person dies.
And "competition in the industry has produced the very best cutting edge medical technologies" is useless, unless a person with a chronic disease has an endless supply of funds.
Don't try to tell me a pre-existing condition is irrelevant when it is a chronic illness. You obviously have no personal experience with it.
Thanks for the voice of sanity & reason, Ken and Chuck. Sure is hard to find people who get it. Unless one has a pre-existing condition that carries potentially high health care costs, they never will understand. It is very frustrating and extremely stressful (which is really great for someone with a chronic illness...!) to deal with insurance companies & doctors, and the pharmacies (who are stuck jumping through hoops!).
Perhaps you should all "grow up" and - whatever your leanings - have a real discussion for a change.
"McClure told Gartner that no one was in danger of being shot accidentally or hit by a stray pellet because he knew exactly where the round was going."
Seriously?! He missed twice, so how can he say he knew where it was going?
Pat, am in total agreement with your comments. McClure should not be a law enforcement officer. He's dangerous. 40 hours suspension?! What a joke.
