Harry W I would take that a step further. I would publish the names of our Congressmen who voted for things that later came back to do us great harm. As an example Barney Frank led the charge to make housing available to people who could not afford to make house payments. He did this through pressure and threats to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make these loans and to buy up the loans from banks who knew they were going to fail from the get go. The loans did not meet the normal rules of making bank loans. Is Mr. Frank and others on his committee ever held accountable for their reckless behaviour? No! You can do some research and easily find who were the major players in passing legislation that eventually led to some very bad things to all of us. These people should have their names published and what they voted for and pushed through the voting process. As it is now all we do is name bills after our heroic Congressmen but when they make idiot mistakes it is long forgotten. It is proposed that the new health care bill when passed be named after the 'Lion of the Senate' Edward M. Kennedy. He should better be remembered for Mary Jo Kopechne

Re: Why the Nobel Peace Prize should be awarded to nuclear weapons View Thread
Posted by john h on 10/12/09 at 11:55

About the only ones I pay attention to are in the field of science which is more difficult to politicize. I had forgot about Arafat. He sure did a lot for peace during his lifetime. I wonder how many people he murdered or was responsible for murdering?

Is it not ironic that Alfred Nobel for who the award is named invented dynamite the purveyor of death and destruction? That being so, perhaps Edward Teller, the father of the hydrogen bomb, should have received two such awards. It is not a really long stretch to say that atomic bombs may have done more for peace than anything else since its inception. There have been no world wars only local wars. It ended WWII in only a couple of days and saved millions of American and Japanese lives by not having to invade Japan where the anticipated American losses were put at 1 million. Japan would have lost just as many in an invasion. Had not both Russia and the U.S. had atomic weapons they very well may have entered a shooting war. No one in his right mind would start a nuclear war but in today's world we have a lot of people who look upon death both to themselves and their enemies as an appropriate thing to do. So only time will tell what the real results of atomic bombs will be. We can only be very very happy that Hitler did not get the bomb prior to America or we would all be toast.

China and Canadia --Oil View Thread
Posted by john h on 9/30/09 at 22:09

It is no urban legend that China is on the move to gain some leverage on oil in Canada who happens to be our largest importer of oil. They have purchased a stake in an Alberta Oil Company for drilling in the oil sands. Does this bother you at all?

Published: Sept. 2, 2009 at 3:57 PM

CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 2 (UPI) -- PetroChina's $1.9 billion venture into Alberta's oil sands calls attention to the value of Canada's oil sands but is raising alarm bells about energy security.

Under the deal announced by Athabasca Oil Sands Corp. on Monday, PetroChina will acquire a 60 percent stake in its MacKay River and Dover oil sands projects. It is China's largest venture in Canadian oil sands to date.

Both projects are situated on some 5 billion barrels of yet-to-be-developed bitumen, part of Athabasca's nearly 10 billion barrels of bitumen reserves. Calgary-based Athabasca will continue to operate both projects, which will cost between $15 billion and $20 billion to develop.

Commercial oil could flow by 2014, with an initial production of 35,000 barrels per day and subsequent phases reaching a total 150,000 barrels per day.

The PetroChina-Athabasca deal, expected to close Oct. 31, will bolster Alberta's investment arena, hit by about $100 billion in canceled mining and oil sands projects since last year. Canadian oil sands represent the second-largest oil reserves in the world.

'Given the sheer size of the Canadian oil sands, it's an area that cannot be ignored by China,' said analyst Lanny Pendill with Edward Jones in St. Louis, the Calgary Herald reports.

But Carolyn Bartholomew, chairwoman of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, warns of a growing Chinese presence in America's 'back yard,' the Globe and Mail reports.

She said that state-owned PetroChina is a proxy of Beijing's Communist government and rejects the notion that it operates as any other commercial oil company.

'I think that an acquisition like this should raise national security questions both for the government of Canada and for the government of the United States,' Bartholomew said, calling for a thorough review by Ottawa that would include sensitive national security issues.

However, former U.S. Ambassador to Canada Gordon Giffin said he doesn't expect the Obama administration to oppose PetroChina's investment in the oil sands.

Ottawa has recently added a national security test to its Investment Canada Act, which reviews foreign takeovers above $600 million.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper Tuesday acknowledged that PetroChina's investment in the assets controlled by Athabasca is more controversial than a private sector, foreign investment in Canada would be.

'I will just say that there are laws in place to review foreign investment transactions when they meet a certain threshold and our government has strengthened those reviews by including a clause that allows officials to examine issues of national security,' he said, the Globe and Mail reports.

Athabasca Chairman Bill Gallacher said he was confident that Ottawa would give a green light to the acquisition.

'Whatever customary reviews are required, we're going to follow that path and make sure we have all the fulsome disclosure required to make this project move forward,' he said.

Community Organizer View Thread
Posted by john h on 8/03/09 at 13:15

President Obama often mentioned his job as a Community Organizer on his resume to become President. When I first heard that term my thought was 'Say What?'. Never heard of one even though I lived on the north side of Chicago and most of my friends parents were blue color union workers. How many of you knew or even now know what a Community Organizer is. In Chicago politics it is often a stepping stone into politics. You can read pages upon pages about what one is and does. The term may have actually originated in Chicago.

1940 to 1960

Saul Alinsky, based in Chicago, is credited with originating the term community organizer during this time period. Alinsky wrote Reveille for Radicals, published in 1946, and Rules for Radicals, published in 1971. With these books, Alinsky was the first person in America to codify key strategies and aims of community organizing. He also founded the first national community organizing training network, the Industrial Areas Foundation, now led by one of his former lieutenants, Edward Chambers.[14]

The following quotations from Alinksy's 1946 'Reveille for Radicals' gives a good sense of his perspective on organizing and of his public style of engagement:

A People’s Organization is a conflict group, [and] this must be openly and fully recognized. Its sole reason in coming into being is to wage war against all evils which cause suffering and unhappiness. A People’s Organization is the banding together of large numbers of men and women to fight for those rights which insure a decent way of life. . . .

A People’s Organization is dedicated to an eternal war. It is a war against poverty, misery, delinquency, disease, injustice, hopelessness, despair, and unhappiness. They are basically the same issues for which nations have gone to war in almost every generation. . . . War is not an intellectual debate, and in the war against social evils there are no rules of fair play. . . .

A People’s Organization lives in a world of hard reality. It lives in the midst of smashing forces, dashing struggles, sweeping cross-currents, ripping passions, conflict, confusion, seeming chaos, the hot and the cold, the squalor and the drama, which people prosaically refer to as life and students describe as “society.[15]

He dedicates the book to lucifer.“Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.'

Re: Heel fat pad (atrophy?) View Thread
Posted by Dr. Ed on 7/27/09 at 13:05

The infracalcaneal fat pad consists of live fatty tissue with contained within fibrous septae. An analogy would be to imagine bubble wrap with the cells being filled by a viscous substance. Often the issue is not so much actual atrophy of the fat pad but displacement of the fat pad. If the septae are fractured or disrupted then the shock absorbing characteristics of the fat pad are lessened. The traditional plastic heel cup works not by providing cushioning but by holding the fat together beneath the heel bone. It is an approximately $3.00 item which is worth trying.

There have been numerous attempts at soft tissue augmentation.... silicone injections in the 1960s, collagen injections in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The silicone injections never garnered FDA approval and there was a problem with shifting. Again, it is not just the cushioning but the act of holding the cushioning in place. Edward Chairman, DPM of Philadelphia, in the late 1980's and early 1990's utilized injection of fat obtained via liposuction. The problem that that fat is pulverized abdominal fat which dies off and does not last.
The fat under the heel bone is living tissue which regenerates itself.

Currently, there is a subset of the podiatry profession utilizing cosmetic dermal fillers to add 'padding' beneath boney areas of the feet. For example: http://www.beverlyhillsfootsurgery.com/fat-pad-augmentation/ Such dermal fillers are designed for parts of the body that are not exposed to the types of pressure and strain placed on the tissues on the bottom of the foot so the longevity of the procedure is not long. Some may consider repeated soft tissue augmentation which need be repeated several times per year if their budget permits and they are sufficiently motivated.

The late Sol Balkin, DPM was the standard bearer and lifelong advocate for use of injectable silicone: http://www.podiatrytoday.com/article/9069 It is my understanding that he obtained the product from Great Britain and used it FDA 'off label' for years.

The difference between athletes/entertainers and politicians is the importance of their position. An entertainer or athlete may be blackmailed for their exploits and it doesn't affect the welfare of the people they represent. In Clinton's case as president it had the potential of putting our nation at risk........and let's face it the distraction of the revelation of his relations with Lewinsky did affect his judgments. When a politician involves himself/herself with an affair who knows what they will consent too in order to keep it quiet. Vitter and Spitzer involved themselves with illegal relationships which put their entire office at risk. Edward's wife was battling for her life.......what kind of person would do that? I think once you put your hand on the Bible or other book of faith and swear to uphold the law of the land it's an oath that must be honored. If you can't keep it zipped for the security of the people who put their faith in you then find another job.

Healthcare View Thread
Posted by john h on 6/16/09 at 12:04

Obama is becoming more realistic on health care. He now says that a government competing health care program is no longer a make or break issue. The Health Secretary says it will take some years to cover everyone. We will get a new program but it is unlikely to be a one similar to England or Canada. The opposition to that is already rising up and even Democratic Congressmen are taking notice. Senator Grassley and Dodd are even having civil conversations and agree on a number of things that should be included in a health care bill. The day the President signs the bill do not look for anything sudden to happen. The big problem is how to pay for it. Anyway you look at it the taxpayers ultimately pay for it. Congress cannot create money. I have no problem being taxed in one form or another to pay for those who 'cannot' afford insurance. There are a lot of people such as rich people and young people who can afford insurance but for both good and bad reasons do not buy it. My secretary's husband has worked for Office Depot for 15 years. They offer insurance but the family does not buy it as they think it is to expensive. They are in their 40's. I try to persuade her that it only takes one big health problem to wipe them out but so far I am doing no good. The Secretary of Health further says it may take into Obama's second term for what ever plan emerges to kick in.

Following is from talk with Secretary of Health. A must read:


AP INTERVIEW: Sebelius says coverage to take years
AP


Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius answers questions about AP – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius answers questions about health care during an AP …
By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR and ERICA WERNER, Associated Press Writers Ricardo Alonso-zaldivar And Erica Werner, Associated Press Writers – 1 hr 18 mins ago

WASHINGTON – Covering the uninsured could take several years, even if Congress passes a bill and President Barack Obama signs it into law this fall, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Tuesday.

'Will something probably be phased in? You bet,' Sebelius said in a question-and-answer session with The Associated Press. 'It won't start the day after the bill passes.' It could take until sometime during the next presidential term, which starts in 2013, she said.

A longer phase-in period could make it easier to handle the costs of the bill, which are already prompting second thoughts from some key lawmakers.

Sebelius' comments came after disappointing cost estimates for health care legislation by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. The Congressional Budget Office released estimates that the bill would cost about $1 trillion over 10 years and only cover about one-third of the nearly 50 million uninsured. Budget officials cautioned that these were early estimates of a bill that's only partly written.

Sebelius discounted the importance of the early estimates, while saying the administration wants to keep the cost at about $1 trillion over 10 years, with about two-thirds of that coming from shifting funds from existing health programs like Medicare and Medicaid.

On a separate and equally problematic issue, Sebelius indicated that the shape of new public insurance plan Obama's been pushing isn't a make-or-break issue for the president.

'It's way too early to say 'This is absolutely in, this is absolutely out,'' she said when asked about it. 'I mean, what he's trying to do is get a bill passed.'

While Sebelius said the 'ballpark' cost for providing full coverage seems to be about $1 trillion, the budget office estimates suggested the price tag could get even bigger.

Costs are becoming a big concern for moderate Republicans the administration is hoping to win over.

Indeed, Sen. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, on Tuesday said the process that produced Kennedy's bill is 'broken.'

'We have a fundamental obligation to ensure this legislation does not increase the deficit and, sadly, current congressional health care reform efforts fall woefully short,' Snowe said in a statement. Obama also says he wants the bill to be fully paid for.

Stretching out the length of time for providing benefits under the bill could be one way to deal with the cost crunch.

'One trillion is a big number,' Sebelius acknowledged. 'Frankly, most people have no idea what that means.'

The first step in expanding coverage would be to sign up people who are eligible for existing government programs, such as Medicaid and the State Children's Health Insurance Program. HHS is already working on plans to reduce bureaucratic hassles that discourage families from signing up, even if they are qualified for coverage.

After that, it could take until 2011 or 2012 to set up insurance purchasing pools and start covering the rest of the uninsured. The purchasing pools, called 'exchanges,' would offer a range of private insurance plans as well as a new government option.

I believe senators need to have the intelligence to absorb vast amounts of information, analyze it and make decisions. CK is a graduate of Radcliffe and Columbia Law School, an author, successful fundraiser, a trustee of Concord Academy and a board member of several non-profits. I believe her life and career experience she has the intelligence to be an effective Senator.

Senators must work long hours and dedicate their lives to their office. CK has proven her passion for public service as Director of Strategic Partnerships for the NYC Public Schools.

I think senators should be able to network and communicate in DC. Obviously Carloine Kennedy can do this.

Ideally senators should be excellent communicators. Her prepared speeches are great but her press interviews have been less than stellar.

I think Caroline Kennedy has the intelligence, dedication and connections to serve effectively. She has not earned the political brownie points that others, like Andrew Cuomo, have. Of course he also got his start due to his name and his Kennedy in-laws helped.

Should all senators have long political resumes? Personally I do not think so.
HIllary Clinton did not have her own political resume and despite what one thinks of her style or positions she was a very hard working and extremely effective senator in her first term. I am not a fan but John Edwards went straight from cooperate law to the Senate. Arnold Schwarenegger was elected after a long career as an actor and body builder. ( I think he is a poor leader)

I know nothing of NY politics so I have no idea if CK can hold onto her seat if elected. I think that is an important consideration.

Thank you John H. for your service. A free America is the end result of what our soldiers fight for. Pacifists, on the other hand, believe that a free America is free (we just need to leave those other nations alone and not meddle in their affairs). That is why pacifists are 'social parasites' who take stability, peace, and freedom for granted (and they do this while feeling morally superior to our soldiers who actually pay for these things). Let me find that poem that says what needs to be said:

The Soldier

It is the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It is the soldier, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the soldier,
who salutes the flag,
who serves under the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.

Yes, you'll be hard pressed to find many Republican/McCain supporters in Canada (even way out here in the conservative west).

I think it's mainly because Canadian values and policies are so much more like the Democrats than the Republicans.

We have universal health care, and the world has not ended. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find _any_ Canadian who would trade our system. Yes, if you have a sore knee and need an MRI - you might be waiting a while. But if you have cancer or a life-threatening illness, you'll be taken care of right away. And, you won't have to make a decision whether or not to mortgage your house so that you can have chemo and surgery.

We have not had an abortion law since 1988 (we have NO law in our criminal code regarding abortion now). Technically, a woman could legally obtain an abortion at any time during her pregnancy.

Despite that, women continue to have babies.

I don't know of any woman who has decided late during her pregnancy to run out and have an abortion just because she can. According to studies, abortion rates are actually higher in the US than in Canada - despite the fact that you do have some regulations whereas we have had none for 20 years.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/health/daily/051606/teensex.html


When Obama was running against Clinton and Edwards, they did some polling here and found that if Obama had been running against his opponents here, he would have stomped his opponents 4 to 1 (it wasn't even close).

To be perfectly honest, many of us believe that Obama is having more trouble in the US than he would here as far as public perception simply because he's black. That's not to sugggest that we don't have racists in Canada (we certainly do), but we don't have the same black history that you've experienced. I suspect that stereotypes and negative racial judgements factor heavily in whether or not people could vote for Obama.

The Choice
Never in living memory has an election been more critical than the one fast approaching—that’s the quadrennial cliché, as expected as the balloons and the bombast. And yet when has it ever felt so urgently true? When have so many Americans had so clear a sense that a Presidency has—at the levels of competence, vision, and integrity—undermined the country and its ideals?
The incumbent Administration has distinguished itself for the ages. The Presidency of George W. Bush is the worst since Reconstruction, so there is no mystery about why the Republican Party—which has held dominion over the executive branch of the federal government for the past eight years and the legislative branch for most of that time—has little desire to defend its record, domestic or foreign. The only speaker at the Convention in St. Paul who uttered more than a sentence or two in support of the President was his wife, Laura. Meanwhile, the nominee, John McCain, played the part of a vaudeville illusionist, asking to be regarded as an apostle of change after years of embracing the essentials of the Bush agenda with ever-increasing ardor.
The Republican disaster begins at home. Even before taking into account whatever fantastically expensive plan eventually emerges to help rescue the financial system from Wall Street’s long-running pyramid schemes, the economic and fiscal picture is bleak. During the Bush Administration, the national debt, now approaching ten trillion dollars, has nearly doubled. Next year’s federal budget is projected to run a half-trillion-dollar deficit, a precipitous fall from the seven-hundred-billion-dollar surplus that was projected when Bill Clinton left office. Private-sector job creation has been a sixth of what it was under President Clinton. Five million people have fallen into poverty. The number of Americans without health insurance has grown by seven million, while average premiums have nearly doubled. Meanwhile, the principal domestic achievement of the Bush Administration has been to shift the relative burden of taxation from the rich to the rest. For the top one per cent of us, the Bush tax cuts are worth, on average, about a thousand dollars a week; for the bottom fifth, about a dollar and a half. The unfairness will only increase if the painful, yet necessary, effort to rescue the credit markets ends up preventing the rescue of our health-care system, our environment, and our physical, educational, and industrial infrastructure.
At the same time, a hundred and fifty thousand American troops are in Iraq and thirty-three thousand are in Afghanistan. There is still disagreement about the wisdom of overthrowing Saddam Hussein and his horrific regime, but there is no longer the slightest doubt that the Bush Administration manipulated, bullied, and lied the American public into this war and then mismanaged its prosecution in nearly every aspect. The direct costs, besides an expenditure of more than six hundred billion dollars, have included the loss of more than four thousand Americans, the wounding of thirty thousand, the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqis, and the displacement of four and a half million men, women, and children. Only now, after American forces have been fighting for a year longer than they did in the Second World War, is there a glimmer of hope that the conflict in Iraq has entered a stage of fragile stability.
The indirect costs, both of the war in particular and of the Administration’s unilateralist approach to foreign policy in general, have also been immense. The torture of prisoners, authorized at the highest level, has been an ethical and a public-diplomacy catastrophe. At a moment when the global environment, the global economy, and global stability all demand a transition to new sources of energy, the United States has been a global retrograde, wasteful in its consumption and heedless in its policy. Strategically and morally, the Bush Administration has squandered the American capacity to counter the example and the swagger of its rivals. China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and other illiberal states have concluded, each in its own way, that democratic principles and human rights need not be components of a stable, prosperous future. At recent meetings of the United Nations, emboldened despots like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran came to town sneering at our predicament and hailing the “end of the American era.”
The election of 2008 is the first in more than half a century in which no incumbent President or Vice-President is on the ballot. There is, however, an incumbent party, and that party has been lucky enough to find itself, apparently against the wishes of its “base,” with a nominee who evidently disliked George W. Bush before it became fashionable to do so. In South Carolina in 2000, Bush crushed John McCain with a sub-rosa primary campaign of such viciousness that McCain lashed out memorably against Bush’s Christian-right allies. So profound was McCain’s anger that in 2004 he flirted with the possibility of joining the Democratic ticket under John Kerry. Bush, who took office as a “compassionate conservative,” governed immediately as a rightist ideologue. During that first term, McCain bolstered his reputation, sometimes deserved, as a “maverick” willing to work with Democrats on such issues as normalizing relations with Vietnam, campaign-finance reform, and immigration reform. He co-sponsored, with John Edwards and Edward Kennedy, a patients’ bill of rights. In 2001 and 2003, he voted against the Bush tax cuts. With John Kerry, he co-sponsored a bill raising auto-fuel efficiency standards and, with Joseph Lieberman, a cap-and-trade regime on carbon emissions. He was one of a minority of Republicans opposed to unlimited drilling for oil and gas off America’s shores.
Since the 2004 election, however, McCain has moved remorselessly rightward in his quest for the Republican nomination. He paid obeisance to Jerry Falwell and preachers of his ilk. He abandoned immigration reform, eventually coming out against his own bill. Most shocking, McCain, who had repeatedly denounced torture under all circumstances, voted in February against a ban on the very techniques of “enhanced interrogation” that he himself once endured in Vietnam—as long as the torturers were civilians employed by the C.I.A.
On almost every issue, McCain and the Democratic Party’s nominee, Barack Obama, speak the generalized language of “reform,” but only Obama has provided a convincing, rational, and fully developed vision. McCain has abandoned his opposition to the Bush-era tax cuts and has taken up the demagogic call—in the midst of recession and Wall Street calamity, with looming crises in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—for more tax cuts. Bush’s expire in 2011. If McCain, as he has proposed, cuts taxes for corporations and estates, the benefits once more would go disproportionately to the wealthy.
In Washington, the craze for pure market triumphalism is over. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson arrived in town (via Goldman Sachs) a Republican, but it seems that he will leave a Democrat. In other words, he has come to see that the abuses that led to the current financial crisis––not least, excessive speculation on borrowed capital––can be fixed only with government regulation and oversight. McCain, who has never evinced much interest in, or knowledge of, economic questions, has had little of substance to say about the crisis. His most notable gesture of concern—a melodramatic call last month to suspend his campaign and postpone the first Presidential debate until the government bailout plan was ready—soon revealed itself as an empty diversionary tactic.
By contrast, Obama has made a serious study of the mechanics and the history of this economic disaster and of the possibilities of stimulating a recovery. Last March, in New York, in a speech notable for its depth, balance, and foresight, he said, “A complete disdain for pay-as-you-go budgeting, coupled with a generally scornful attitude towards oversight and enforcement, allowed far too many to put short-term gain ahead of long-term consequences.” Obama is committed to reforms that value not only the restoration of stability but also the protection of the vast majority of the population, which did not partake of the fruits of the binge years. He has called for greater and more programmatic regulation of the financial system; the creation of a National Infrastructure Reinvestment Bank, which would help reverse the decay of our roads, bridges, and mass-transit systems, and create millions of jobs; and a major investment in the green-energy sector.
On energy and global warming, Obama offers a set of forceful proposals. He supports a cap-and-trade program to reduce America’s carbon emissions by eighty per cent by 2050—an enormously ambitious goal, but one that many climate scientists say must be met if atmospheric carbon dioxide is to be kept below disastrous levels. Large emitters, like utilities, would acquire carbon allowances, and those which emit less carbon dioxide than their allotment could sell the resulting credits to those which emit more; over time, the available allowances would decline. Significantly, Obama wants to auction off the allowances; this would provide fifteen billion dollars a year for developing alternative-energy sources and creating job-training programs in green technologies. He also wants to raise federal fuel-economy standards and to require that ten per cent of America’s electricity be generated from renewable sources by 2012. Taken together, his proposals represent the most coherent and far-sighted strategy ever offered by a Presidential candidate for reducing the nation’s reliance on fossil fuels.
There was once reason to hope that McCain and Obama would have a sensible debate about energy and climate policy. McCain was one of the first Republicans in the Senate to support federal limits on carbon dioxide, and he has touted his own support for a less ambitious cap-and-trade program as evidence of his independence from the White House. But, as polls showed Americans growing jittery about gasoline prices, McCain apparently found it expedient in this area, too, to shift course. He took a dubious idea—lifting the federal moratorium on offshore oil drilling—and placed it at the very center of his campaign. Opening up America’s coastal waters to drilling would have no impact on gasoline prices in the short term, and, even over the long term, the effect, according to a recent analysis by the Department of Energy, would be “insignificant.” Such inconvenient facts, however, are waved away by a campaign that finally found its voice with the slogan “Drill, baby, drill!”
The contrast between the candidates is even sharper with respect to the third branch of government. A tense equipoise currently prevails among the Justices of the Supreme Court, where four hard-core conservatives face off against four moderate liberals. Anthony M. Kennedy is the swing vote, determining the outcome of case after case.
McCain cites Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito, two reliable conservatives, as models for his own prospective appointments. If he means what he says, and if he replaces even one moderate on the current Supreme Court, then Roe v. Wade will be reversed, and states will again be allowed to impose absolute bans on abortion. McCain’s views have hardened on this issue. In 1999, he said he opposed overturning Roe; by 2006, he was saying that its demise “wouldn’t bother me any”; by 2008, he no longer supported adding rape and incest as exceptions to his party’s platform opposing abortion.
But scrapping Roe—which, after all, would leave states as free to permit abortion as to criminalize it—would be just the beginning. Given the ideological agenda that the existing conservative bloc has pursued, it’s safe to predict that affirmative action of all kinds would likely be outlawed by a McCain Court. Efforts to expand executive power, which, in recent years, certain Justices have nobly tried to resist, would likely increase. Barriers between church and state would fall; executions would soar; legal checks on corporate power would wither—all with just one new conservative nominee on the Court. And the next President is likely to make three appointments.
Obama, who taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago, voted against confirming not only Roberts and Alito but also several unqualified lower-court nominees. As an Illinois state senator, he won the support of prosecutors and police organizations for new protections against convicting the innocent in capital cases. While McCain voted to continue to deny habeas-corpus rights to detainees, perpetuating the Bush Administration’s regime of state-sponsored extra-legal detention, Obama took the opposite side, pushing to restore the right of all U.S.-held prisoners to a hearing. The judicial future would be safe in his care.
In the shorthand of political commentary, the Iraq war seems to leave McCain and Obama roughly even. Opposing it before the invasion, Obama had the prescience to warn of a costly and indefinite occupation and rising anti-American radicalism around the world; supporting it, McCain foresaw none of this. More recently, in early 2007 McCain risked his Presidential prospects on the proposition that five additional combat brigades could salvage a war that by then appeared hopeless. Obama, along with most of the country, had decided that it was time to cut American losses. Neither candidate’s calculations on Iraq have been as cheaply political as McCain’s repeated assertion that Obama values his career over his country; both men based their positions, right or wrong, on judgment and principle.
President Bush’s successor will inherit two wars and the realities of limited resources, flagging popular will, and the dwindling possibilities of what can be achieved by American power. McCain’s views on these subjects range from the simplistic to the unknown. In Iraq, he seeks “victory”—a word that General David Petraeus refuses to use, and one that fundamentally misrepresents the messy, open-ended nature of the conflict. As for Afghanistan, on the rare occasions when McCain mentions it he implies that the surge can be transferred directly from Iraq, which suggests that his grasp of counterinsurgency is not as firm as he insisted it was during the first Presidential debate. McCain always displays more faith in force than interest in its strategic consequences. Unlike Obama, McCain has no political strategy for either war, only the dubious hope that greater security will allow things to work out. Obama has long warned of deterioration along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, and has a considered grasp of its vital importance. His strategy for both Afghanistan and Iraq shows an understanding of the role that internal politics, economics, corruption, and regional diplomacy play in wars where there is no battlefield victory.
Unimaginably painful personal experience taught McCain that war is above all a test of honor: maintain the will to fight on, be prepared to risk everything, and you will prevail. Asked during the first debate to outline “the lessons of Iraq,” McCain said, “I think the lessons of Iraq are very clear: that you cannot have a failed strategy that will then cause you to nearly lose a conflict.” A soldier’s answer––but a statesman must have a broader view of war and peace. The years ahead will demand not only determination but also diplomacy, flexibility, patience, judiciousness, and intellectual engagement. These are no more McCain’s strong suit than the current President’s. Obama, for his part, seems to know that more will be required than willpower and force to extract some advantage from the wreckage of the Bush years.
Obama is also better suited for the task of renewing the bedrock foundations of American influence. An American restoration in foreign affairs will require a commitment not only to international coöperation but also to international institutions that can address global warming, the dislocations of what will likely be a deepening global economic crisis, disease epidemics, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, and other, more traditional security challenges. Many of the Cold War-era vehicles for engagement and negotiation—the United Nations, the World Bank, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty regime, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization—are moribund, tattered, or outdated. Obama has the generational outlook that will be required to revive or reinvent these compacts. He would be the first postwar American President unencumbered by the legacies of either Munich or Vietnam.
The next President must also restore American moral credibility. Closing Guantánamo, banning all torture, and ending the Iraq war as responsibly as possible will provide a start, but only that. The modern Presidency is as much a vehicle for communication as for decision-making, and the relevant audiences are global. Obama has inspired many Americans in part because he holds up a mirror to their own idealism. His election would do no less—and likely more—overseas.
What most distinguishes the candidates, however, is character—and here, contrary to conventional wisdom, Obama is clearly the stronger of the two. Not long ago, Rick Davis, McCain’s campaign manager, said, “This election is not about issues. This election is about a composite view of what people take away from these candidates.” The view that this election is about personalities leaves out policy, complexity, and accountability. Even so, there’s some truth in what Davis said––but it hardly points to the conclusion that he intended.
Echoing Obama, McCain has made “change” one of his campaign mantras. But the change he has actually provided has been in himself, and it is not just a matter of altering his positions. A willingness to pander and even lie has come to define his Presidential campaign and its televised advertisements. A contemptuous duplicity, a meanness, has entered his talk on the stump—so much so that it seems obvious that, in the drive for victory, he is willing to replicate some of the same underhanded methods that defeated him eight years ago in South Carolina.
Perhaps nothing revealed McCain’s cynicism more than his choice of Sarah Palin, the former mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, who had been governor of that state for twenty-one months, as the Republican nominee for Vice-President. In the interviews she has given since her nomination, she has had difficulty uttering coherent unscripted responses about the most basic issues of the day. We are watching a candidate for Vice-President cram for her ongoing exam in elementary domestic and foreign policy. This is funny as a Tina Fey routine on “Saturday Night Live,” but as a vision of the political future it’s deeply unsettling. Palin has no business being the backup to a President of any age, much less to one who is seventy-two and in imperfect health. In choosing her, McCain committed an act of breathtaking heedlessness and irresponsibility. Obama’s choice, Joe Biden, is not without imperfections. His tongue sometimes runs in advance of his mind, providing his own fodder for late-night comedians, but there is no comparison with Palin. His deep experience in foreign affairs, the judiciary, and social policy makes him an assuring and complementary partner for Obama.
The longer the campaign goes on, the more the issues of personality and character have reflected badly on McCain. Unless appearances are very deceiving, he is impulsive, impatient, self-dramatizing, erratic, and a compulsive risk-taker. These qualities may have contributed to his usefulness as a “maverick” senator. But in a President they would be a menace.
By contrast, Obama’s transformative message is accompanied by a sense of pragmatic calm. A tropism for unity is an essential part of his character and of his campaign. It is part of what allowed him to overcome a Democratic opponent who entered the race with tremendous advantages. It is what helped him forge a political career relying both on the liberals of Hyde Park and on the political regulars of downtown Chicago. His policy preferences are distinctly liberal, but he is determined to speak to a broad range of Americans who do not necessarily share his every value or opinion. For some who oppose him, his equanimity even under the ugliest attack seems like hauteur; for some who support him, his reluctance to counterattack in the same vein seems like self-defeating detachment. Yet it is Obama’s temperament—and not McCain’s—that seems appropriate for the office both men seek and for the volatile and dangerous era in which we live. Those who dismiss his centeredness as self-centeredness or his composure as indifference are as wrong as those who mistook Eisenhower’s stolidity for denseness or Lincoln’s humor for lack of seriousness.
Nowadays, almost every politician who thinks about running for President arranges to become an author. Obama’s books are different: he wrote them. “The Audacity of Hope” (2006) is a set of policy disquisitions loosely structured around an account of his freshman year in the United States Senate. Though a campaign manifesto of sorts, it is superior to that genre’s usual blowsy pastiche of ghostwritten speeches. But it is Obama’s first book, “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance” (1995), that offers an unprecedented glimpse into the mind and heart of a potential President. Obama began writing it in his early thirties, before he was a candidate for anything. Not since Theodore Roosevelt has an American politician this close to the pinnacle of power produced such a sustained, highly personal work of literary merit before being definitively swept up by the tides of political ambition.
A Presidential election is not the awarding of a Pulitzer Prize: we elect a politician and, we hope, a statesman, not an author. But Obama’s first book is valuable in the way that it reveals his fundamental attitudes of mind and spirit. “Dreams from My Father” is an illuminating memoir not only in the substance of Obama’s own peculiarly American story but also in the qualities he brings to the telling: a formidable intelligence, emotional empathy, self-reflection, balance, and a remarkable ability to see life and the world through the eyes of people very different from himself. In common with nearly all other senators and governors of his generation, Obama does not count military service as part of his biography. But his life has been full of tests—personal, spiritual, racial, political—that bear on his preparation for great responsibility.
It is perfectly legitimate to call attention, as McCain has done, to Obama’s lack of conventional national and international policymaking experience. We, too, wish he had more of it. But office-holding is not the only kind of experience relevant to the task of leading a wildly variegated nation. Obama’s immersion in diverse human environments (Hawaii’s racial rainbow, Chicago’s racial cauldron, countercultural New York, middle-class Kansas, predominantly Muslim Indonesia), his years of organizing among the poor, his taste of corporate law and his grounding in public-interest and constitutional law—these, too, are experiences. And his books show that he has wrung from them every drop of insight and breadth of perspective they contained.
The exhaustingly, sometimes infuriatingly long campaign of 2008 (and 2007) has had at least one virtue: it has demonstrated that Obama’s intelligence and steady temperament are not just figments of the writer’s craft. He has made mistakes, to be sure. (His failure to accept McCain’s imaginative proposal for a series of unmediated joint appearances was among them.) But, on the whole, his campaign has been marked by patience, planning, discipline, organization, technological proficiency, and strategic astuteness. Obama has often looked two or three moves ahead, relatively impervious to the permanent hysteria of the hourly news cycle and the cable-news shouters. And when crisis has struck, as it did when the divisive antics of his ex-pastor threatened to bring down his campaign, he has proved equal to the moment, rescuing himself with a speech that not only drew the poison but also demonstrated a profound respect for the electorate. Although his opponents have tried to attack him as a man of “mere” words, Obama has returned eloquence to its essential place in American politics. The choice between experience and eloquence is a false one––something that Lincoln, out of office after a single term in Congress, proved in his own campaign of political and national renewal. Obama’s “mere” speeches on everything from the economy and foreign affairs to race have been at the center of his campaign and its success; if he wins, his eloquence will be central to his ability to govern.
We cannot expect one man to heal every wound, to solve every major crisis of policy. So much of the Presidency, as they say, is a matter of waking up in the morning and trying to drink from a fire hydrant. In the quiet of the Oval Office, the noise of immediate demands can be deafening. And yet Obama has precisely the temperament to shut out the noise when necessary and concentrate on the essential. The election of Obama—a man of mixed ethnicity, at once comfortable in the world and utterly representative of twenty-first-century America—would, at a stroke, reverse our country’s image abroad and refresh its spirit at home. His ascendance to the Presidency would be a symbolic culmination of the civil- and voting-rights acts of the nineteen-sixties and the century-long struggles for equality that preceded them. It could not help but say something encouraging, even exhilarating, about the country, about its dedication to tolerance and inclusiveness, about its fidelity, after all, to the values it proclaims in its textbooks. At a moment of economic calamity, international perplexity, political failure, and battered morale, America needs both uplift and realism, both change and steadiness. It needs a leader temperamentally, intellectually, and emotionally attuned to the complexities of our troubled globe. That leader’s name is Barack Obama.

Re: Sarah Palin close to anti-American group? View Thread
Posted by marie:) on 9/08/08 at 14:43

These are all good points John. Palin bores me but some seem to fixated on her. I have no idea why. Let me address some of your questions.

(1) An immediate energy policy for the long run and that includes drilling for oil where ever we can find it. We will need oil for at least 20 more years as we have trillions of dollars invested in things that use oil (cars,planes,trains, factories,etc).

- We also need oil for National Security purposes. Overdrilling could leave us vulnerable. When we turn over land for drilling to an oil company there is no guarantee the oil they pump from our country will remain in the USA. It will be sold on the market to the highest bidder. Some offshore drilling is ok with me as as long as the states are part of the decision making process, all oil drilled here remains here, a swath of land be set aside for the worst case scenario.


http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/08/03/america/campaign.php
A day after Senator Barack Obama said he could support broad energy legislation even though it would permit offshore oil drilling, which he has opposed, an aide to Senator John McCain said Sunday that he too might support such a package.

'My interest is in making sure we've got the kind of comprehensive energy policy that can bring down gas prices,' Obama said in an interview with The Palm Beach Post. 'If, in order to get that passed, we have to compromise in terms of a careful, well-thought-out drilling strategy that was carefully circumscribed to avoid significant environmental damage - I don't want to be so rigid that we can't get something done.' The bipartisan package he referred to would include more subsidies for alternative energy sources.

(2) Increase both nuclear plants and oil refineries.

-There are NO laws preventing the building of new Nuclear Plants. The problem is the expense in maintaining the standards set forth by our nation and yes we need new oil refineries.......same problem. Do we lessen our standards or do we understand that we will have to pay for it?

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/09/05/politics/animal/main4418440.shtml
Last week, in his acceptance speech, Barack Obama explained, 'As President, I will tap our natural gas reserves, invest in clean coal technology, and find ways to safely harness nuclear power.' It was entirely consistent with the line Obama has taken throughout the campaign -- while Edwards took a firm stand against nuclear power, and Clinton was largely agnostic on the subject, Obama always expressed a degree of openness to the idea.

3) Have the smartest people we can find to see what all the alternative energy things will work. Things like solar, wind, geothermal,etc. Some of these may not be able to supply our needs in the final analysis. The things we have the most of are natural gas and coal. It is clear they can and do supply what we need and will play a bigger role in our future energy plan.

http://newsok.com/pickens-plan-gets-through-to-hopefuls/article/3293964
Pickens, who attended the Democratic and Republican conventions, said he took notice when Obama promised to end the U.S. dependence on Middle East oil imports while developing natural gas reserves.

'That was pretty clear to me; I knew where it came from,” Pickens said. 'It came from me.”

http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/newenergy
* Provide short-term relief to American families facing pain at the pump
* Help create five million new jobs by strategically investing $150 billion over the next ten years to catalyze private efforts to build a clean energy future.
* Within 10 years save more oil than we currently import from the Middle East and Venezuela combined.
* Put 1 million Plug-In Hybrid cars -- cars that can get up to 150 miles per gallon -- on the road by 2015, cars that we will work to make sure are built here in America.
* Ensure 10 percent of our electricity comes from renewable sources by 2012, and 25 percent by 2025.
* Implement an economy-wide cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050.

(3) My conclusion and I am no economist is that raising taxes is a wrong move. Others may disagree.

-The only taxes Obama plans on raising are those of our most wealthy. Bubble up economic theory means you and I get large tax reductions.

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2008/09/07/Obama_Middle-class_tax_cuts_a_priority/UPI-99111220828925/
WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama said Sunday the U.S. economy was 'fragile' and he would press for middle-class tax cuts if elected.

Speaking on the ABC News program 'This Week with George Stephanopoulos,' Obama said middle-class tax relief was his 'priority.' He said he might put off allowing President George W. Bush's tax cuts for wealthy Americans to expire because such a move might hurt the economy.

http://www.startribune.com/nation/27986209.html
ob No. 1 for the next president? In the minds of an overwhelming number of Americans, it's fixing what ails the sick economy. What the voters will have to sort out are very different approaches offered by Barack Obama and John McCain.

McCain, borrowing a page from Ronald Reagan and President Bush, would keep tax rates low for higher-income taxpayers and slash rates for corporations, arguing that this is the way to jump-start a lethargic economy and create more jobs.

Obama, focusing on a theme of many past Democratic campaigns, seeks to target his help to the squeezed middle class and address the growing income inequality between rich and poor. He would retain all of the Bush tax cuts for families making less than $250,000 a year, but would do away with Bush's cuts for people making more than that.

(4) Both Mcain and Obama are not that far apart on Iraq.

-Obama has been correct from the start of this debate. McCain is just starting to catch up..or at least Bush is. Both candidates are interested in shifting focus to Afghanestan.

(4) I do not want a English or Canadian type health plan. We have approximately 40 million people uninsured. Many are by choice as they are young and think they do not need it and some are rich and do not need it. The people that want it and need it but cannot afford it should be brought in without totally discarding the system we have. There are surely ways this can be done. I will personally not mind paying more to do this but I do not want Government running Health Care. That would be a disaster.

-Clinton's plan was closer to what Canada has. Obama has been criticized as not doing as much.

http://obama.senate.gov/issues/health_care/

http://www.slate.com/id/2178896/pagenum/all/
At issue is how 'universal' we can expect any health-care reform to be. Obama's plan creates various mechanisms to make both private and public health insurance more readily available. Hillary's plan does the same, but also creates an 'individual mandate' requiring every American to buy health insurance. Obama's plan creates an 'individual mandate' too, but only for children. Otherwise, under Obamacare, citizens would remain free to buy private health insurance or not as they pleased.

5) Come up with a plan to save Social Security as we know it. We only have about 20 years to do this. -Go to his site for a detailed plan. It's very good and addresses your concerns. Link below.

http://www.barackobama.com/issues/socialsecurity/
'We… have an obligation to protect Social Security and ensure that it's a safety net the American people can count on today, tomorrow and forever. Social Security is the cornerstone of the social compact in this country… Coming together to meet this challenge won't be easy… It will take restoring a sense of shared purpose in Washington and across this country. But if you put your trust in me — if you give me 'your hand and your heart' — then that's exactly what I intend to do as your next President.'


(6) Keep or actually increase the strength of our military. There have always been wars and there is no reason to think we will not continue to have wars. Strength trumps everything and this is the NUMBER ONE responsibility of the President.

-Again go to his site. He's on it.

http://www.barackobama.com/issues/defense/
“Our country's greatest military asset is the men and women who wear the uniform of the United States. When we do send our men and women into harm's way, we must also clearly define the mission, prescribe concrete political and military objectives, seek out advice of our military commanders, evaluate the intelligence, plan accordingly, and ensure that our troops have the resources, support, and equipment they need to protect themselves and fulfill their mission.”

Please feel free to share McCain's side.

Hi Maria!

I sent a link to your blog to a friend of mine who has chronic breast cancer. (like Elizabeth Edwards) She loved your writing like I do. This morning I sent her this quote from Andrew Sullivan. He blogs daily at the Atlantic Monthly's Daily Dish. This quote is from one of his book, Love Undetected, about his experience as a gay, conservative, Catholic man living with AIDS. I think you and others who suffer from tts and pf might like the quote:
'It was like being in a movie theater when something goes wrong in the projector room, and suddenly the film slips, and the images are out of focus and slipping haphazardly beneath the screen, and the light flickers and the figures jump. And you wait for it to be fixed, for the movie to jump back into its space, for the story to go back to itself, for the scenes that have already been lost to be pieced together in retrospect. And you wait and wait. And then it dawns on you that, in fact, the movie will never be fixed, that from now on, this is the movie, and that from now on, you will have to find a way to watch it differently, to adjust your eyes and vision and hearing, to glean from its new disorder an order that you can remember and comprehend.'

Tony you're a colleague, call me David please.

What you've said is very true, finding an unbiased opinion on the subject is difficult. Although Drs. Vaughan and Edwards are offering a package for marketing your spinal decompression practice, they appear to be using reasonable standards and language that would not encourage doctors to commit fraud.

Whether you spend 10K or 100K on a 'spinal decompression' machine, the marketing of that machine is what is landing our fellow DC's in trouble and not the machine itself.

Their battle with ACN is case in point (not that ACN is my favorite cost containment/management group). The insurers have caught onto the sales pitch marketing, inappropriate coding and fees, lack of evidence based protocols and have protected themselves from having to shell out reimbursement for the semantic sleight-of-hand.

Their system costs less than 1K to launch your investment to your prospective patients. Maybe it is not as seductive as the Altadonna ads of the past but at least it isn't going to land you in prison.

Once the hype ends and the prices come down to reality the words 'spinal decompression' will dry up and disappear overnight with traction tables. Isn't spinal decompression a surgical procedure?

Dr. Wedemeyer,

I followed the link you provided to the ChiroWeb.com article. If you look at the email at the end of the article, you will see that Drs. Edwards and Vaughan may have a motive for making the statements they did in their article. Go to their website at www.marketdecompression.com and you will see they are selling a marketing package for the Chattanooga Triton DTS system.

Let me make it clear I am not standing up for any of the 'high priced' spinal decompression companies, but I just don't like it when articles are written with ulterior motives. It is in these Drs interest to down play the cost of decompression systems. The Triton DTS is about one-tenth the cost of some systems.

It's hard to get unbiased opinions in our field. Everyone is out for their own best interest. The Triton DTS is marketed as a traction unit, and thus is billed as a traction therapy.

'The Democratic controlled senate and congress that said if you elect them, gas prices would go down and the border would get fixed lied. '

You know as well as I do that Lieberman is no longer a Democrat and that one of our US Senator's became very ill during this time. We do not have a filibuster proof Senate...........and Republicans love to obstruct the will of the people as well as President Bush with the stroke of the veto pen. So cry all you want but Americans understand exactly who is standing in the way. Newt Gingrich made an attempt to warn Republicans but they have chosen not to listen.

Dr. Ed-

Thank you so much for your reply. No, I have not checked with Dr. Michael McGlamry. My doctor is Dr. Womack of Resurgens. I am meeting with him on Friday to go over my MRIs. He is not pushing for surgery unless it is the absolute last resort, as we have discussed the outcome and recovery as well as recurrence rate. This cryotherapy has peaked my interest. I know that it is successful with other types of tumors (liver, prostrate etc). I am going to mention this to him at our appointment and see what he has heard and/or knows about it. A close family friend of mine, Dr. Edward Russell is a Radiologist with Univ. of Miami. I have sent him the info on it (article with case study that I found) and he said he sees how it is possible, but says the dr would need to be 100% behind and believe in treating my condition fully. I realize this is in the beginning phase, and truly hope that this could be a reality for treating fibromas.

Thank you for Dr. McGlamry's info. I will definitely use him as another opinion if it comes down to surgery and/or alternative methods such as injections. I will also mention this to my dr as well.

Thank you!

Hillary is far from dumb. She's probably told him to stay out of it.

This has certainly been a fascinating election for you to watch, Wendy. We haven't had a race this good for a long time. Marie is perfectly right. For years the Democrats seemed to run no one who could possibly win and this year we had Biden, Edwards, Obama and Richardson, all of whom I liked. It's either feast or famine in this Party.

I keep hearing people say that it's going to be Obama and Clinton or the other way around. That makes no sense. It guarantees it'll be the Republican candidate, even if McCain and Romney drop out and they run Donald Duck. The majority aren't going to run for a black and a woman on the same ticket. I think it'll be Edwards who runs as Vice President but I could be wrong. Maybe he'll hold out for Attorney General or Secretary of State. I imagine he's doing a lot of talking these days because his support could make a huge difference, and more delegates, for somebody. I feel bad for him. It was just the wrong year; he was the mild-mannered white man stuck between a woman and a dynamic black. I refuse to call Hillary dynamic but I will grant you she's smart.

As someone who gets her news from the Boston media, I'm amazed at how well Romney is doing. This morning they said the polls had him running very close to McCain. There's something about the man I don't like. I can't put my finger on it but I never have. I just think he'll say whatever he has to say in order to get elected. Having said that, I like McCain but I don't agree with him about many things.

With my track record, all I know is that the person I like will lose! So I guess I'll run around telling everyone how much I love Hillary Clinton. No............no on who knows me would believe me!

Enjoy the ride, Wendy!

Hi Kathy,

I'm not happy with some of the negative Clinton campaign techniques either. I don't usually pay attention to what is going on during the final month because it always puts me on the defense but it's hard not to pay attention with the media and the Internet. My problem has always been that I like Obama, Edwards and Clitnon. I liked Richardson and Biden alot too so I made the decision to let this all play out and now we are down to Clinton and Obama. I enjoyed last nights debate. I thought it was very civil and they did a good job of explaining the differences between the two of them and also what they have in commons. That was important because that's what we all need to be listening too.......the rest is all just a bunch of phooey. I appreciate your take on the process. :)

I'm not fond of the way McCain has been acting either. He acted smug during the last Republican debate. I guess he has earned that but I don't want smug...........we've had enough of that. Huckabee, Paul and Romney did very well. They kept their composure and tried not to take pot shots. McCain's mouth will get him in trouble if he's the Republican candidate.

And what's this? Coulter saids she will campaign for Clinton if McCain is the Republican candidate.............now that would almost be worth it. Well maybe not. ;)

The Clinton Duo View Thread
Posted by Kathy G on 1/29/08 at 10:52


I have never liked Hillary Clinton. She strikes me as an ambitious person who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. The first day she met Bill Clinton, she came home and told her roommate that she had met the man she was going to marry. Not because she found him sexy or was immediately drawn to him in the normal way but because she 'knew he would go on and become president of the US.' I read it in her autobiography. Or it might have been a biography but I've read it in more than one place.

Unlike me, Hillary, who's two or three years older than I, never thought we'd have a woman president in her lifetime so the closest she'd get to all that power was to marry it. I've always thought we'd have a woman president in my lifetime.

Okay, fast forward to the Clinton presidency. I didn't campaign for Bill the first time around because I worked for Paul Tsongas. I wasn't sure I trusted Bill. Then as his term went on, I discovered that I was beginning to trust him. Long story short (as if I could do that!), I thought the country prospered during the Clinton years. I thought he was smart, charming and a damn good president. I had a sign on my lawn for him the second time around.

I should say I was among those who felt that if he had an affair with Monica, it was no business of mine. I still don't know why that led to a Congressional inquiry. I felt his private life was his own. I did think he was stupid to lie but I still don't see how his affair was anyone's business but his and Hillary's. And Hillary knew he'd been having affairs for years and just turned her head. She wanted the power that she thought only he could give her.

So here we are with Hillary running for president. I still don't like her any more than I ever did. Yes, she's smart and she knows the facts but how would she represent our country if she can't even campaign without sounding condescending? She'd talk down to everyone and all the countries who hate us now would continue to hate us. Let's face it. Part of diplomacy is being a nice person. Hillary isn't nice - not at all.

I've been an Obama supporter almost from the beginning. At first, it was John Edwards I supported but as time went by, I grew tired of his playing it safe and always falling back on the same old speech and message. I like Obama's intelligence and enthusiasm. I like his honesty. I like his plans for this country. I think he's just what the doctor ordered for a war-weary country who is sick of 'scare' politics.' He actually offers hope that we can become a great nation again.

As for Bill? I've totally changed my opinion of him. He's turned out to be a power-hungry, out-of-control, condescending caricature of what he once was. He's running a dirty campaign and he's shown he'll stop at nothing to get his wife elected. I wonder what she's promised him? Attorney General? Chief of Staff?

He's taken the Clinton campaign into the gutter. This race had always transceded race and gender. Now he's decided to remind us that Obama is black with every statement he makes. Odd, here in NH, we all noticed that Obama was black and Hillary was a woman without Bill pointing it out. Obama did pretty well here, didn't he?

What is Clinton thinking? To liken Obama to Jesse Jackson? To call his claim to being against the war a 'fairy tale?' One wonders what kind of lies he's going to tell next. And he's slick, which of course, tells us where the name 'Slick Willy' came from. He throws out these hateful ads for twenty-four hours and then pulls them. He leave them up just long enough for Obama to have to spend a week defending himself; a week in which he could have been talking about the issues. I keep wondering how low he's going to stoop to destroy Obama.

I'm disillusioned. Not so much about politics because the debacle that took place in Florida convinced me that we, the American people, don't choose our president. Someone else does. And at times, I ask myself why I bother to care but I keep going.

I am hoping that the Democratic party is unable to reign Bill Clinton in and I hope it backfires and sends the votes to Obama. If Hillary wins the nomination, I fear what her administration will be like because she will have run a very dirty campaign. As for Bill? It's sad to see the way he's acting but maybe we're seeing the real Bill Clinton for the first time. And I guess I'm not as good a judge of character as I thought I was.

Just call me a very Disillusioned McGovern worker who's begun to see the light. I knew that a certain amount of somewhat unsavory things were part of campaigning but I had no idea how bad it would get in 2008.

PS None of this will stop me from being a bleeding-heart liberal. Just a bleeding-heart liberal who is a lot more cynical than I was before this election.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Jeremy I do not question Shaq being a good man or giving back to the communities. It is a lot easier for people like him and Bill Gates who gives Billions back than most of us to give $1000. I think it is ignored that approximately 1% of wage earners pay over 90% of income taxes. Yet our politicians like to yell about taxing the rich even more. John Edwards gets $1000 haircuts and recently built a 23 room mansion and he to wants to tax 'the rich' more. Seems as 'the rich' and 'big business' and 'big oil' are the evil witches these days.

I still have a hard time visualizing a yearly $250,000.00 gas bill each year but I feel confident he can back it up to the IRS with no problem as they would not just pass over that. Shaq comes from a military family so he probably had some good values taught to him compared to many of our youth. We have several NFL and NBA stars who live in Little Rock and are now retired. All are heavily involved in helping young people in many ways and are as much heroes today as they were when they were stars in the NFL and NBA.

I find your politics (particularly this time around) very, very interesting. We (Canadians) have some very dry, boring, uninspiring people leading our main political parties right now and that translates into real voter apathy.

I didn't get to watch your whole debate last night (Obama, Clinton, Edwards) but from the hourI did see, I personally thought they were all fabulous (I would have a tough time picking which one to nominate).

I suspect most Candians (with most most Candians being fairly liberal in their views) think more like Democrats than Republicans. If I was an American, I'd be a Democrat...and then all my Republican, Evangelical American relatives would have to disown me.

I don't have a dog in this fight so I am keeping an open mind to all running. There are candidates on both sides I find appealing but admit I'm still leaning left. My issues are the economy and all that relates to it, affordable health care with emergency safety net, security/wars, so I am looking very carefully at each candidate.

Haha......that's pretty much the jist of it, I'll add just a couple of notes.

Iowa and New Hampshire have always been the first 2 states to hold a caucus and a primary. It was decided to add 2 more states close to their dates so that we'd get a wider voting population. Iowa is in the North/Midwest and New Hampshire on the East coast. The campaigns bring in alot of money to those states and they really don't want to give it up. Several states applied, including Michigan and from that list South Carolina and Nevada where chosen. One in the South and one in the West. The states that lost moved their dates up without the nod's of the parties. Of course that upset Nevada and South Carolina because they where given the official nod and expect to make money from the campaigns. It really puts the party and the campaigns in a difficult spot.

Because Michigan and Florida moved their primary dates up the DNC punished them by removing their delegates. Only Clinton and Kucinich chose to be on the ballot..........although they got no delegates. Edwards and Obama refrained because they didn't want to upset South Carolina or Nevada.

IMHO I believe it was a mistake to take all of the delegates away. I think they could have punished Michigan by taking one or two delegates but not all.
Michigan is at almost 8% unemployment. Romney is the ONLY candidate who understands what is going on there and has an emergency plan ready to go the day he takes office. McCain had next to nothing to offer so he lost.

It had to happen sooner or later. Hillary and Obama are embroiled in 'race issues' now. Hillary said something to the effect that racial equality came about when Lyndon Johnson signed the civil rights act during his term in office. Obama said these words neglects all the work done by Martin Luther King. Other prominent blacks and whites are now weighing in. Obama is working this for all its worth. John Edwards has even made some comments on the situation. The closer we get to nominating someone the worse the candidates will get using anything and everything to tear down their opponent.

He knew he was going to run for President and the media would pick up on that giant home he built. He could have waited two years and built it or moved into the White House. Edward's should save his money and drop out in my mind. I rather have him than Hillary but I think it is going to be Hillary or Obama. Fred Thompson was asked on Jay Leno the other night who he thought would win the Democratic nomination. He thought Hillary would as she has a big machine behind her. If Barrack had not been in this race Hillary could have waltzed to the nomination. Now she has to deal with a fluent, smart, well spoken African American. Her gender does not trump Obama's being the first black President.

Well, I was right about McCain but wrong about Obama. I listened to NPR a great deal of yesterday and many of the pundits thought it was women over 45 who went for Clinton at the last minute, especially after her infamous 'tearing up' episode in Portsmouth. I think it was people like a friend, my husband and my daughter who all voted for Richardson and Edwards. They said that since Obama had it all sewn up, they wanted to vote for someone who they thought could also do the job. They didn't think enough attention was being paid to these people.

I think a lot of factors played a part, including those I just mentioned. I saw a definite change in Obama, which he admitted himself, in that he believed the pollsters and thought he had already one so he didn't do what people who like him, including me, want him to do and that's get more specific. His website is pretty good but all the voters don't go there. Hillary was explaining how she was going to do the things she was going to do. He needs to get more specific.

It's going to be an exciting election and I'm just glad that the Democrats finally ran some qualified people. Now I have to listen and read to why they think Kerry waited until today to endorse Obama. I think it was so he wouldn't hurt him in NH because a lot of us don't like Kerry and didn't really want to vote for him in the election last year but didn't want to vote for Bush.

My call is that Edwards is aligning himself with Obama and if he doesn't to well himself in the next few primaries, he'll drop out and work for Obama in exchange for a place in the Cabinet.

It's nice to know that it happened again. I put a sign on my lawn and the candidate doesn't stand a chance. I almost didn't do it but there were very few for Obama in my neighborhood. I am the kiss of death. During the actual election, I absolutely will not put a sign on my lawn or wear a button or put a bumper sticker on for the Democratic candidate. Maybe I should reverse it and do the same for the candidate I don't like? Problem is, as diverse as some of his views are from mine, if McCain gets the nomination, I like him. I wouldn't want to jinx him either.

The Iowa caucus is like a board game. It was all about making sure Edwards was not the frontrunner. It's been next to impossible for the second tier candidates to get in with the Dem Leadership. It was simple those supporters just went for the front runner........which happened to be Obama. I believe Obama would have won anyways but he couldn't have done it without the 2nd tier supporters. I was shocked at the polls when they came out because my prediction was a tie or a very narrow win by one or the other.

South Carolina will lean for Hillary...........but if GOBAMA gets them going he may be able to win. Again I think it will be close.

It's really important that Obama got the Culinary Union Workrs endorsement. This group had been leaning towards Edwards and it's a plum with 60,000 members. If Edwards drops out after South Carolina then I think Obama will win Nevada.

Man, typing that 6 bakwards was the hardest one so far!

It's 6:49 PM here in NH and the current polls show McCain ahead of Romney by seven points but I came into the room too late to hear who's in third place. Obama is ahead of Hillary by sixteen points. Poor Edwards is a distant third, the forgotten man. And poor Bill Richardson. And I really think he has a lot to offer. I'd love to see a Democrat who may win the election ask Richardson to be an advisor.

I see many Romney signs but I have to say that for the most part, he was not a popular MA governor around here. And all my friends aren't liberal Democrats. We all just thought he was a little slippery - certainly not someone you'd want to trust with running the country. I think McCain will win but then again earlier I said it would be he and Hillary and it looks like it could be Obama.

Certainly Hillary's breaking down this morning will have some effect but she came around pretty quickly and I'll tell you, for someone so emotionally weary, she was incredibly articulate and recovered very quickly. Was it deliberate so she could 'soften' her image? Only the most cynical among us would think that.

Yup, I think it was orchestrated! Notice no tears fell? Can't mess up that makeup even if it is all waterproof. But I've always told you I was a cynic.

Because I'm firmly established as favoring a particular candidate, I am getting very few political phone calls. But my friend got ten calls yesterday! The last two phone calls I answered (I have caller ID.)were to ask me if I was voting in the Republican campaign! Hey, as I was writing this, I got a call. An ABC poll. One of the questions was would I consider myself a liberal. All you who have been around for a long time would know that answer!

I must say, if I were able, I'd be in the thick of it right now. What an exciting time for us. For once, the Democrats have put forth some decent candidates who could actually win. Back in those days, we had no computers and campaigns were totally different. I think the biggest difference is the Internet.

This is going to be one interesting year and it will be very interesting to see whom we get to post our votes for come November 2008!

It was great to see so many wanting to get involved. A lot of the newcomers were pretty young, some being barely 18 I'd say. Our precinct had 19 total delegates at stake, Obama won 8, Clinton 6, Edwards 5. We here in Iowa are very lucky to get so many opportunities to meet and listen to the candidates because they spend so much time here. On the down side is all the phone calls interrupting a meal time from someone taking a poll or a automated recording. It sure has been quiet since yesterday! The closer it got to Thursday the larger the postcards got in our mailboxes too. The Republicans had a much smaller turnout, not sure of their count, but it had to been less than 100.

New Hampshire will probably make all the difference for Obama. If he moves ahead of Clinton or ties with her I believe he will move forward to the nomination. He may have won Iowa without second tier caucus goers but not by as much and Edwards would have been very close or tied with Obama. As second tier candidates drop out the question will be who will they gravitate to? I think Obama is more likely the choice over Clinton, just because Clinton is not as well received by those voters........especially on the liberal end of the party. Kucinich encouraged his supporters to move into Obama's camp. Why Obama over Edwards? Was it because of Obama's stance on the war in Iraq or because Iowa's Democratic leadership's stubborn support of Edwards shut them out? The race is clearly between Obama and Clinton now.

I think the results on the Democratic side were more about taking Edwards out then a true result. Edwards is solid with the Iowa Democratic leadership............it's been really tough for some of the lower tiered candidates to get any of them to look their way. They love Edwards...............and did not waver. I gather there were some major off the record strategies going on last night. Lower tiered candidate's supporters (those without the 15% required) drifted to the person strongest in the polls to prevent Edwards from a win. Without a solid win in Iowa Edwards is done. Payback. The race is now between Obama and Clinton respectively.

Huckabee is no shock. He appeals to many Midwesterners...........also known as the Bible belt. I'm not sure he can hold it in some other states but good for him last night!!!! :) Huckabee will have to better define and share how he intends to implement his issues on his website.

Shades of the year 2000. Good GOP candidates like Phil Gramm and John MCain were buried by attacks from the Republican blue bloods and establishment types who were determined to annoint the far less qualified George W. Bush as their candidate. This is the same powerful sector of the GOP that placed Bob Dole as the candidate in 1996 after squashing the popular revolt of Gingrich.

All of a sudden that same bunch views Huckabee as a threat. He is for things like the Fair Tax which would take away all of current system of benefits for the power brokers. Huck is now being attacked by Rush, Peggy Noonan, Hugh Hewitt and Ann Coulter who are all establishment Republicans first and conservatives second. Their annointed one is Romney and they will attack anyone who looks like they may threaten Romney's coronation as the GOP nominee. They already have Guiliani's number on social issues and have written off McCain.

This is the same thing that got me to vote for a third party candidate in 2000.

Ron Paul, who is growing in popularity but is very unlikely to get the GOP nod is rumored to be considering a third party run, possibly the Libertarian Party..

If all of this comes to pass, the only thing the Democrats can do to lose is to go too far to the left as they did in 2004. Hillary will have a bit of a hard time trying to convince people that she is not a hard core leftist. Edwards is basically a moderate who has been pandering to the left. He may want to consider going back to being a moderate as there is quite the vacuum in that position. Then there is always Gore...

A new poll of likely Republican caucus participants shows that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has nearly pulled even with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the Iowa frontrunner.

According to the American Research Group poll, taken Nov. 10-14, Romney is supported by 26 percent of likely caucusgoers and Huckabee is backed by 24 percent.

McClellan recounts the 2003 news conference in which he told reporters that aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby were 'not involved' in the leak involving operative Valerie Plame.

'There was one problem. It was not true,' McClellan writes, according to a brief excerpt released Tuesday. 'I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest-ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president's chief of staff and the president himself.'

Do not give up hope. To quote Sen. John Edwards, 'help is on the way.'
Whoops, this is not the politics board.

Seriously, you do not have a difficult condition to treat. Yes, I have provided relief to numerous patients with the right orthotics for this condition. Jeremy will know exactly what to do. It is possible that you may need some additional treatments beyond the orthotics such as cuboid manipulation but Jeremy is affiliated with a group of podiatrists that he can refer you to if that is needed.

I never thought I would see the day when a Republican who's parents are from India would be elected Mayor of New Orleans. If this can happen then anything is possible.

I have sort of handed Hillary the nomination and the electon for that matter but now I am having second thoughts. Hillary has a lot of baggage and Oback has produced a lot of fire which what ever Republican is nominated can use that is if Oback is not the candidate himself. John Edwards has shot himself in the feet so many times he has virtually no chance. His $400 haircuts and new mansion did not help his common man cause.

My letter to my senator who signed the letter:

Dear Senator Mary Landrieu:

I noted that you signed a letter addressed to the CEO of Clear Channel Communication, Inc., Rush Limbaugh's employer in opposition to Rush Limbaugh's comments regarding phony soldiers. Your letter states that Rush's comments was an attacked our troops.

Your assertions and accusations are totally false as there was no attack on our troops, only the phony soldiers who the antiwar movement continue to clammer to give a platform to spout their false claims of war crimes. You and the other senators who signed this letter are on a smear campaign in an attempt to curtail 'free speech' that the radio commentators have.

I am not a listener of Rush Limbaugh; however, I find your letter caused me to do some online research and in doing so, I find what he said did not rise to any attack on our soldiers, but only to the phony soldiers. There have been many 'phony soldiers' in the antiwar movement to include the 'Vietnam Veterans Against The War' that put forth false war crime claims, i.e. testimony in the winter soldiers investigation (See pages 113, 131-134, 136, 144, 559, Stolen Valor, by B.G. Burkett and Glenna Whtley) used by Senator John Kerry in his testimony to the US Congress where in he called the soldiers murders, etc., thus causing the democrat party to force America to abandon South East Asia resulting in millions of lives being lost and our national image being severely tarnished around the world. The false testimony also tarnished those of us who served and died for our country. I see the same phenomena raising its ugly head again.

It is clear Limbaugh was speaking of the phony Army Ranger, Macbeth, who was recently convicted of being a phony soldier and claimed many war crimes.

The democrat party had no problem in attacking one of our Generals and that backfired, now the party is attempting to making up a false allegation to divert or to attempt to obtain cover for that position. There is no comparison with what the democrats did with regard to Moveon.org's attack and what Limbaugh stated.

I urge you to disavow your attach on Mr. Limbaugh in this regard, actually, you should be applauding him for his attack on the phony soldiers. I suggest you do some goggle searches for Phony Soldiers, Wannabes online and you will find several websites that exposing these individuals, many claiming false war crimes. Your signature on the letter only reflects your true ignorance of what is going on within the antiwar movement and an embarrassment to the citizens of Louisiana.

Senate Democrats Condemn Limbaugh's Attack On Our Troops




Washington, DC—Senate Democrats today sent the following letter to Mark P. Mays, CEO of Clear Channel Communications, calling on him to publicly repudiate Rush Limbaugh’s characterization of troops who speak out against the Iraq war as “phony soldiers.” Despite recent Republican comments condemning verbal attacks on our troops, when given the opportunity to join us in signing this letter, not a single one did so.

Below is the text of the letter:

October 2, 2007

Mr. Mark P. Mays
CEO, Clear Channel Communications Inc.
200 East Basse Road
San Antonio, TX 78209

Dear Mr. Mays,

At the time we sign this letter, 3,808 American soldiers have been killed in Iraq, and another 28,009 have been wounded. 160,000 others awoke this morning on foreign sand, far from home, to face the danger and uncertainty of another day at war.

Although Americans of goodwill debate the merits of this war, we can all agree that those who serve with such great courage deserve our deepest respect and gratitude. That is why Rush Limbaugh’s recent characterization of troops who oppose the war as “phony soldiers” is such an outrage.

Our troops are fighting and dying to bring to others the freedoms that many take for granted. It is unconscionable that Mr. Limbaugh would criticize them for exercising the fundamentally American right to free speech. Mr. Limbaugh has made outrageous remarks before, but this affront to our soldiers is beyond the pale.

The military, like any community within the United States, includes members both for and against the war. Senior generals, such as General John Batiste and Paul Eaton, have come out against the war while others have publicly supported it. A December 2006 poll conducted by the Military Times found just 35 percent of service members approved of President Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq, compared to 42 percent who disapproved. From this figure alone, it is clear that Mr. Limbaugh’s insult is directed at thousands of American service members.

Active and retired members of our armed forces have a unique perspective on the war and offer a valuable contribution to our national debate. In August, seven soldiers wrote an op-ed expressing their concern with the current strategy in Iraq. Tragically, since then, two of those seven soldiers have made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq.

Thousands of active troops and veterans were subjected to Mr. Limbaugh’s unpatriotic and indefensible comments on your broadcast. We trust you will agree that not a single one of our sons, daughters, neighbors and friends serving overseas is a “phony soldier.” We call on you to publicly repudiate these comments that call into question their service and sacrifice and to ask Mr. Limbaugh to apologize for his comments.

Sincerely,

Senator Harry Reid, Majority Leader

I don't know why or what it means but it's interesting for sure. And it looks to be a very exciting 08 race. ;) I still have not decided who I support. I think I'll let the masses duke it out.

John Mack, chief executive officer of Morgan Stanley, Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp., and Terry Semel, chairman of Yahoo! Inc., are among some 60 executives writing checks to Democrats such as Senators Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois, a review of U.S. Federal Election Commission records shows.

Murdoch, who donated $25,000 to the Republican National Committee in 2004, has given Clinton $2,300. Semel of Sunnyvale, California-based Yahoo!, who gave $2,000 to Bush in 2004 and $50,000 to the Republican National Committee, has given the maximum, $4,600, to Clinton and $2,300 to Obama.

Through the latest FEC reporting period, the three leading Democrats -- Clinton, Obama and former North Carolina Senator John Edwards -- out-raised the three leading Republicans -- former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and McCain, $145.2 million to $103.3 million.

Re: Hillary Health Care II View Thread
Posted by john h on 9/17/07 at 18:10

Marie: Senator Edwards immediately after hearing of her plan:

Former Senator John Edwards attacked Clinton more directly. 'The cost of [the 1994] failure 14 years ago is not just somebody's political fortune or their scars,' he said, according to The Swamp. 'It's the millions of Americans who have now gone for almost 15 years without health care.'

'I don't believe you can sit down with lobbyists, take their money and cut a deal,' Edwards continued. 'If you defended the system that defeated health care, I don't think you can be the president who brings health care.'

Senator Obama came forward with not so kind words also. I will say this for Hillary she has a lot of guts to lay out a plan which will surely bring criticism from both sides of the isle. She can only gain votes by people who may not have insurance and they typically are not voters. It want be just from Democrats as many Congress men/wome remember what happened when she last tried this and they do not want the public to go crazy over this. I read part of the way to finance this is to repeal the Bush tax cuts, to make companies who do not offer health coverage pay into a national fund, and some other pie in the sky forecast that may or may not work. Some small companies just flat cannot pay for healthcare coverage or they would go bankrupt. I suspect this part of her program would be limited to companies of a certain size. Of course the devil is always in the details and she will start to be questioned over and over about these if she does indeed have details. She may just have a broad outline and is using this to political advantage (she hopes). I need to know more before I make a judgement.

The candidate with whom I score the higest(75%) is Dennis Kucinich. Then I have a complete tie with three candidates: Dodd, Biden and Obama (63%). These are overall scores. Next come Hillary and Edward tied with 60%. Socially, I'm totally in line with Kucinich, Dodd, Biden and Obama at 63%. It's the economics where I most align with Kuchinich at 83% and the others with 67%.

I'd vote for Kucinich or Biden if I thought they stood a chance but they don't. Curently I'm trying to decide between Obama and Edwards. Hillary would only be an option if she were the Democratic candidate because so far, I don't see anyone I'd like better running on the Republican side. My highest score with a Republican was with Giuliani and that's because of social issues and I came out at a total 25%.

This is a great site, Marie. For example, I'll now pay more attention to Chris Dodd. And once again, it shows that once a bleeding heart liberal, always a bleeding heart liberal. They say you become more conservative with age. I wonder what I was like when I was younger???? And to think I not only didn't inhale, I never even tried Pot.

In USA Today this morning Obama is quoted as saying he would immediately move all the troops in Iraq to Afganistan if elected. He also said he would chase the Taliban and other radicals into Pakistan if necessary with or without Pakistan's approval.


Obama might want to reconsider this since about half the population of Pakistan do not like Americans and they happen to be a nuclear power. In the past given a choice between Hillary and Obama I would have taken Obama but if this is his idea of getting the troops out of Iraq then come on down Hillary. Obama's lack of experience is showing. He was also asked if all his Generals gave him some advice on Iraq would he take it. He said he would be President and make the decision himself. Hey Obama how many wars have you fought in lately? Would you also operate on your appendix and remove them yourself. He is starting to scare me more than a little. These words are going to come back and haunt Obama as Hillary is very good at taking notes and knows how to stick a knife into you where it hurts. I hope the Dems come up with someone other than these two front runners as I am frightened of both. John $400 haircut Edwards is starting to look moderate.

Marie do any of us REALLY know who cheated on who? Does it really matter given that a long line of politicians have cheated. Probably a long line of women have also cheated. If we threw all politicians out of office who have cheated probably half of Congress and many of the Presidents would be out on their ear. Is fidelity a prerequisite to hold office? I do not know. How do you know John Edward's is devoted to his wife? No one knows what goes on inside a marriage except those who are living it. I have said over and over that morality which is in the eyes of the beholder is not a matter of being a Democrat or Republican. To try and make it such is is only political in natue. Hillary was long rumored in Little Rock to have had something going on with Vince Foster as they both worked for the Rose Law Firm and went to the Firm's retreat together. She certainly had to know about Bill's doings when he was Governor as everyone in town knew some facts in the case. Then again so what. Voters voted for them both. If you are going to be President I say keep your fooling around out of the White House. If you are a Congressman keep it out of the Capitol. Do not embarrass our nation.

You can spew and make up all the crap you want about Dems. The people of our nation have caught on to the lies and are done with the Republican Party. They want a party that stands up for them and their values............it doesn't matter which party.

If the Republican Party runs on family values the party must come up with better candidates.

Lets see how many of the Democratic candidates in 08 have ditched their wives and replaced them with a younger model......

Chris Dodd has a younger wife but he didn't have a trist with her when he was married.

Clinton's husband cheated on her but I admire the fact she and Bill have worked to keep their marriage together.

Obama is a very lucky man. He hasn't cheated on his wife.

John Edwards is devoted to Elizabeth.

Funny........but none of them are movie stars. All are active in their faith. All have an interest in keeping families together and afloat. Hmmmmmmmmmmm..........I'll stick with our candidates over Republicans.

Now if Republicans can actually support a real moderate who has family values and isn't a movie star or an adultress then you guys might have a shot.

Are you a sheep, sheep dog, or wolf View Thread
Posted by john h on 7/16/07 at 10:32


To: Edwards, Jill (student, UW)
Subject: Sheep, Wolves and Sheepdogs

Miss Edwards, I read of your student activity regarding the proposed
memorial to Col. Greg Boyington, USMC and a Medal of Honor winner. I suspect you will receive a bellyful of angry e-mails from conservative folks like me.

You may be too young to appreciate fully the sacrifices of generations of
servicemen and servicewomen on whose shoulders you and your fellow students
stand. I forgive you for the untutored ways of youth and your naivete. It may
be that you are, simply, a sheep. There's no dishonor in being a sheep as long
as you know and accept what you are.

William J. Bennett, in a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November 24,
1997 said: Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind, gentle,
productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident. We may well be
in the most violent times in history, but violence is still remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people who are not capable of
hurting each other, except by accident or under extreme provocation. They are sheep.

Then there are the wolves and the wolves feed on the sheep without mercy. Do
you believe there are wolves out there who will feed on the flock without mercy?
You better believe it. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

Then there are sheepdogs and I'm a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and
confront the wolf. If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy
productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy
for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf.
But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking
the unchartered path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the
universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.

We know that the sheep live in denial; that is what makes them sheep. They do
not want to believe that there is evil in the world. They can accept the fact that fires can happen, which is why they want fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire alarms and fire exits throughout their kids schools. But many of them are outraged at the idea of putting an armed police officer in their kid's school. Our children are thousands of times more likely to be killed or seriously injured by school violence than fire, but the sheep's only response to the possibility of violence is denial. The idea of someone coming to kill or harm their child is just too hard, and so they chose the path of
denial.

The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He
has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the
sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheep dog who
intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed. The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative democracy or a republic such as ours. Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn't tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports, in camouflage fatigues, holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, Baa. Until the wolf shows up; then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

The students, the victims, at Columbine High School were big, tough high school
students, and under ordinary circumstances they would not have had the time of day for a police officer. They were not bad kids; they just had nothing to say to a cop. When the school was under attack, however, and SWAT teams were clearing the rooms and hallways, the officers had to physically peel those clinging, sobbing kids off of them.

This is how the little lambs feel about their sheepdog when the wolf is at the door. Look at what happened after September 11, 2001 when the wolf pounded hard on the door. Remember how America, more than ever before, felt differently about their law enforcement officers and military personnel? Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a sheepdog; it is just what you choose to be. Also understand that a sheepdog is a funny critter: He is always sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night, and yearning for a righteous battle. That is, the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous battle. The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move to the sound of the guns when needed, right along with the young ones.

Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep pretend the
wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After the attacks on
September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said,
Thank God I wasn't on one of those planes. The sheepdogs, the warriors, said,
Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have
made a difference. You want to be able to make a difference. There is nothing
morally superior about the sheepdog, the warrior, but he does have one real
advantage. Only one. And that is that he is able to survive and thrive in an
environment that destroys 98 percent of the population.

There was research conducted a few years ago with individuals convicted of
violent crimes. These cons were in prison for serious, predatory crimes of
violence: assaults, murders and killing law enforcement officers. The vast majority said that they specifically targeted victims by body language: slumped walk, passive behavior and lack of awareness. They chose their victims like big cats do in Africa, when they select one out of the herd that is least able to protect itself. Some people may be destined to be sheep and others might be genetically primed to be wolves or sheepdogs. But I believe that most people can choose which one they want to be, and I'm proud to say that more and more Americans are choosing to become sheepdogs.

Seven months after the attack on September 11, 2001, Todd Beamer was
honored in his hometown of Cranbury, New Jersey . Todd, as you recall, was the
man on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania who called on his cell phone to alert an
operator from United Airlines about the hijacking. When they learned of the other three passenger planes that had been used as weapons, Todd and the other
passengers confronted the terrorist hijackers. In one hour, a transformation occurred among the passengers, athletes, business people and parents from
sheep to sheepdogs and together they fought the wolves, ultimately saving an
unknown number of lives on the ground.

There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible evil of evil
men. Edmund Burke.

Only the dead have seen the end of war. Plato

Here is the point I like to emphasize, especially to the thousands of police
officers and soldiers I speak to each year. In nature the sheep, real sheep, are born as sheep. Sheepdogs are born that way, and so are wolves. They didn't have a choice.

But you are not a critter. As a human being, you can be whatever you want to be. It is a conscious, moral decision. If you want to be a sheep, then you can be a sheep and that is okay, but you must understand the price you pay. When the wolf comes, you and your loved ones are going to die if there is not a sheepdog there to protect you. If you want to be a wolf, you can be one, but the sheepdogs are going to hunt you down and you will never have rest, safety, trust or love. But if you want to be a sheepdog and walk the warrior's path, then you must make a conscious and moral decision every day to dedicate, equip and prepare yourself to thrive in that toxic, corrosive moment when the wolf comes knocking at the door.

This business of being a sheep or a sheep dog is not a yes-no dichotomy. It is
not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees, a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-sand-sheep and on the other end is the ultimate warrior. Few people exist completely on one end or the other. Most of us live somewhere in between.

Since 9-11 almost everyone in America took a step up that continuum, away from
denial. The sheep took a few steps toward accepting and appreciating their warriors and the warriors started taking their job more seriously. It's ok to be a sheep, but do not kick the sheep dog. Indeed, the sheep dog may just run a little harder, strive to protect a little better and be fully prepared to pay an ultimate price in battle and spirit with the sheep moving from baa to thanks.

We do not call for gifts or freedoms beyond our lot. We just need a small pat on the head, a smile and a thank you to fill the emotional tank which is drained protecting the sheep. And when our number is called by The Almighty, and day
retreats into night, a small prayer before the heavens just may be in order to say thanks for letting you continue to be a sheep. And be grateful for the thousands, millions of American sheepdogs who permit you the freedom to express even bad ideas.

Just because you can cite some examples of those on the right who have been unfaithful to their spouse does not mean that 'conservatives think adultery is okay.' How do you know Edwards and Obama have had no adulterous affairs? Finding a few examples of hypocrisy does not change the fact that abortion goes against the teachings of the Catholic church as well as much of Western religion.

There are those who fail to follow the belief they espouse irrespective of political affiliation. That does not change the fact that conservatism has a tradition of respect for the ethics and morals of the old and new testaments. Liberals, on the other hand, have often taken a view that such traditional religious documents should have little influence on the way we conduct our society. The left did not want the ten commandments in the courthouse, nor prayer in the classroom.

Adultry is a sin in the Catholic church and divorce not allowed. Yet conservatives think adultry is ok.......ok enough that Giuliani and McCain are presidential hopefuls. Both had adultress affairs that led to their divorce. They later married their mistresses. Thompson also had an affair with his now current wife. He's not in the race but he will be. When conservatives paint themselves to be holier then the rest of our population they had better actually be holier. It is this representation that has Americans thinking 'who the heck are these people?' One after another we have seen the ivory tower crumbling. It's not that Dems are better or have better morals it's just that we actually have candidates that do. Clinton (hubby not excused though), Edwards & Obama have not had adultress affairs and have remained loyal to their marriage vows and their spouses..........even at the worst of times.

Today, he finally acknowledged that we have a war on terror but that he would do things differently than Bush, ie. no Guantanamo for one. He ignores the fact the information obtained from the detainees at Guantanamo was a major intelligence victory for the US....the amount of potential terrorism avoided or averted is a piece of information we will find out one day.

'Today, the national Republican party launched a vicious attack at John for asking Americans to speak out to support the troops and end the war.

They actually accused him of profiteering from the war because he's asked for your support and even had the nerve to ask you to pay the cost of a tee shirt. Of course, if the RNC really wants to attack someone for profiteering, they should call Dick Cheney's friends at Halliburton and ask them to return the billions of dollars they've made on a war that Dick Cheney promoted from day one.'

You must be really worried about John Edwards. What you should be worried about is the Republican candidates. There isn't a stand out candidate yet and conservatives are stuck in the 2000 election Internet cycle. That's why Dems are out raising donations and supporters via the Internet.

Mary Lou S -

Forgive me for intruding into your comments to Brandon for a moment but I am also considering prolotherapy and am gathering information. Here is a website that you might want to take a look at:
http://www.prolotherapy.org/

Rick R, another poster on this website, responded to my general question about this procedure not too long ago so you might want to do a message search under his name. He reported that it did not help him for PF, that it was painful and expensive. Another person I know reported that her physician used it for his own parent's back pain with no success. I am considering it for knee problems but am wary because of the inconsistency of the results, the expense and other factors.

As you no doubt know, former US Surgeon General C. Edward Koop, is a great proponent of prolotherapy. He had great success it for his own back and (I think) shoulder pain and also uses it himself on his own patients. There are many other 'testimonials' about successful outcomes. So it's apparently quite a mixed bag.

I hope you find help and healing whatever you decide. If you decide to try prolotherapy, I hope you will report here, as I will do too, if I try it. Best wishes.

You're right money is an indicator of primary success but it greatly depends on where the money comes from and exactly 'How many' donated. If 8 people donated a million each that would be nice but if 8 million people donated one dollar each that would mean a landslide in their favor. Mitt Romney seems like a decent enough guy. I wish him the best. I won't vote for him as I don't agree with him on many of the issues but I think he may represent Republicans well. I feel the Republican candidate will be chosen based on who the front runner is for the Democratic Party.

If Clinton wins I think they may go with Giulliani. Although I think she can beat him.

Ed: Somehow in our country it has become evil to be 'big' as in big drug companies, big oil companies, big business. Politicians often use this ploy to demonize someone or some company. Our big drug companies have probably saved more lives than any other entity in the world. They have produced and invented drugs that have wiped out many killer diseases from the planet. It is unlikely a 'small' drug company has the resources to bring a new drug to the market as the current average cost to do this for one drug is $700,000,000.00. We rail and rail about the high cost of drugs but have laws the require drug companies to test, re-test, be sued for billions of dollars, and on and on. We once had diseases such as yellow fever, the plague, diphtheria, polio, killer flu epidemics, and so many others. If the high price of drugs is the cost of this then we all got the bargain of our life. We have probably saved half the people on the planet with the big drug companies. 'Big' is what allows for low prices for nearly all our products. Wallmart is really big because it sells at low prices. We all want low prices and that will come from Big companies not your mom and pop stores. The same goes with agriculture. Big allows for the economies of scale. Most of our millionaire politicians who rail against 'Big' made their money though big companies. Heinz Kerry. The Kennedy's and liquor during prohibition. Edward's though a big law firm. Bush through big oil. These type people speak with a forked tongue when they try to demonize anything that is BIG. America was built on the premises that you could grow as big as you wanted or had the ability to reach. That is the way a free society works. I do not criticize those who have reached the top and have become Big. I had my shot. Why our public buys into this is beyond me. I presume it is class envy which politicians play on. Things go south when government intervenes in the economic process with things such as price controls and the flow of free trade. Politicians thrive on playing off the rich against the poor or middle class.

Obama really does not have much of a record to run on. Great speaker and seems to have a good intellect. Obama's race will be a factor whether we like it or not. His race will both attract voters and drive some away. Edwards would be my choice for a nominee as he does not have much to attack on. Not sure what his foreign policy agenda would be. No Democrat or Republican has a solution for the Middle East when we pull out. Now, nearly every country in the Middle East is saying they are going to build nuclear reactors which is only a short hop to having a nuclear bomb. Can you imagine a nuclear Middle East with multiple countries having the bomb and with a mindset of a suicide bomber? Ten years from now we are going to have some issues to face that will threaten our nation and way of life. We do not have what it takes to face them now but sooner or later we will have no option. We stood by as Hitler gained power and captured most of Europe and almost took down England. Only Pearl Harbor awakened the people. Seems like that is what it will take today.

Irrespective of the labels people are using, the Presidential race of 2008 will come down to a choice between two individual candidates as opposed to a choice between two parties. Polls pairing GOP frontrunners against Dem frontrunners do not make the Dem candidates look so strong. Hillary has a lot of baggage despite the money she will raise. If she is the candidate, I expect an acrimonious election to occur. Obama has closed the gap and overtaken Hillary in recent fundraising but he is essentially a 'feel good' candidate as his track record is very short. Holding himself out as one who is above the politics as usual is just not enough to win the day in the end. The Democrat with a solid platform and who has taken concrete stands on a number of issues, often moderate stances, is John Edwards. I feel that Edwards would be the strongest candidate for the Democrat. Giuliani is not running on ideology; he is running on administrative competence as evidenced by his record of public service. Romney, too, has shown good administrative skills in both business and politics. I don't see how Obama or Hillary could win against Giuliani or Romney; Edwards is a different story.

Sounds like a typical case where the attorney works for a percentage of the settlement and charges the client nothing unless he wins. This would be a reason he would want a lump sum settlement rather than continuing health care that the client wants. The Attorney would get nothing if a case were settled like that. I doubt any insurance company would ever settle for an open ended life time of medical care. I have never heard of such a settlement even when someone is totally and permanently disabled. They would settle for millions as opposed to that. If the attorney feels like he is not going to get a settlement or a small one you can bet he will be putting more of his effort into cases that he feels he can win and preferably win big.

John Edwards (Presidential Candidate) made his millions and millions in class action suits against the tobacco companies. Most all of the class action law suits are put together by attorneys and are for a percentage of the settlement. Tobacco settlements ran into the billions so a lot of attorney like Edwards became multi millionaires.

Inside Bush's prosecutor purge
Why has the administration fired U.S. attorneys with sterling track records? To make room for its political loyalists, critics say, and exert its last shred of control.
By Mark Follman

Feb. 28, 2007 (PIPE) Ever since the Bush administration shocked the legal community by dismissing eight U.S. attorneys in December, Justice Department leaders have vigorously denied that the firings were politically motivated. "I would never, ever make a change in the United States attorney position for political reasons," Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said in Senate testimony in early January. In a Feb. 6 hearing, Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty told lawmakers, "When I hear you talk about the politicizing of the Department of Justice, it's like a knife in my heart."

But at least three of the eight fired attorneys were told by a superior they were being forced to resign to make jobs available for other Bush appointees, according to a former senior Justice Department official knowledgeable about their cases. That stands in contradiction to administration claims that the firings were related either to job performance or policy differences. A fourth U.S. attorney was told by a top Justice Department official that the dismissal in that attorney's case was not necessarily related to job performance. Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney David Iglesias in New Mexico -- who officially steps down from his post on Wednesday, and who says he was never told by superiors about any problems with his work -- plans to go public with documentation of the achievements of his office.

"I never received any indication at all of a problem" regarding performance or policy differences, Iglesias told Salon on Monday. "That only leaves a third option: politics."

Iglesias acknowledged that U.S. attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president and can be dismissed without cause. "But it's really been maddening," he said, that the administration is pointing to job-performance issues to defend the firings. Iglesias, who was appointed by Bush in 2001, noted that his office got a "very positive" evaluation in the Justice Department's own internal ratings system as recently as last fall and that he received a letter from the Executive Office of U.S. Attorneys in January 2006 commending him for his "exemplary leadership in the Department's priority programs," including antiterrorism, community crime prevention and law enforcement coordination.

Iglesias said he was "shocked" by the phone call on Dec. 7 telling him to resign. He added, "I think Americans need to have full confidence that their federal prosecutors are above politics."

Suspicions about the unusual purge of eight U.S. attorneys in December exploded into the open across the legal community and on Capitol Hill after McNulty conceded in Senate testimony on Feb. 6 that the U.S. attorney in Arkansas, Bud Cummins, was pushed out for no reason other than to give someone else a shot at the job. Using a little-noticed provision in the Patriot Act allowing interim appointments, Gonzales gave the post to Timothy Griffin -- who had been both an operative for the Republican National Committee and a deputy to senior White House advisor Karl Rove -- in what many believe was a maneuver to sidestep the traditional Senate confirmation process for U.S. attorneys.

More recently, U.S. attorney Carole Lam, who is best known for nailing corrupt Republican Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham and his partners in crime, was replaced on Feb. 15 by Karen P. Hewitt, who according to a Justice Department press release, "will serve on an interim basis until a United States Attorney is nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate." According to an Op-Ed in Monday's New York Times, Hewitt has a résumé with "almost no criminal law experience" and is a member of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.

While Cummins was first informed of his dismissal last June, it wasn't until Dec. 7 that Michael Battle, a top Justice Department official, informed the rest of the group of U.S. attorneys in phone calls that they would be required to step down. That group included Daniel Bogden in Nevada, Paul Charlton in Arizona, John McKay in Seattle, Carole Lam in San Diego, and David Iglesias in New Mexico -- all of whom had received positive job reviews before they were dismissed and some of whom are viewed by colleagues and law enforcement officials as exceptional leaders. Most of them have said publicly that they were never told of any management or policy problems by their superiors.

According to the former senior Justice Department official, one of the U.S. attorneys in the group was told by Battle on Dec. 7: "It's hard not to think you did something wrong when you get a call like this, but that's not always the case." Two other U.S. attorneys in the group, upon seeking clarification from superiors in Washington, were told by a different top Justice Department official that they were being pushed out to give other Bush appointees their posts. A current senior Justice Department official confirmed that one of those two was Bogden in Nevada.

When asked about those conversations with top officials, Bryan Roehrkasse, a public affairs spokesman for the Justice Department, declined to comment about "specific personnel matters."

Former officials, legal scholars and U.S. lawmakers from both parties have publicly questioned the administration's stated rationale for the firings and have suggested troubling theories about the real reasons for the purge, which experts say is without precedent. Some former Justice Department officials say they believe the administration's moves are a politically driven power grab -- aimed not only at a tighter grip on policy from Washington, but also at creating openings with which to reward their friends and build up a bench of conservative loyalists positioned to serve in powerful posts in future administrations.

"It's really remarkable to have a wholesale removal of an administration's own U.S. attorneys, particularly this deep into the term," said John Kroger, a federal prosecutor under Clinton and Bush who now teaches at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Ore. "Clearly there was a concerted decision made to ask a bunch of them to leave. It suggests a desire to more tightly control policy. With the Democrats in control of Congress, perhaps it's because this is one of the few levers of government they have left."

Many point to the Cummins firing as proof that the administration is lying. "It is simply not believable that these were all performance-based dismissals, and everyone knows it," said a veteran prosecutor who served for a decade in the Justice Department until 2005. He also noted that he found it interesting that half of the posts cleared out are in the Southwest, where immigration is a key issue.

Kroger added that a stint as U.S. attorney is often a springboard to federal judgeships or other prestigious appointments. "Being a U.S. attorney is a huge credential, one a lot of people would like to have," he said. "It certainly looks like they're clearing out spots to reward loyalists in the last two years of the administration."

To support their claim that the dismissals were performance related, Bush officials have pointed to one among the fired U.S. attorneys, Kevin Ryan in San Francisco, who has been widely reported to be a focus of management complaints. The firing of Margaret Chiara in Michigan, the eighth U.S. attorney caught up in the December purge, was not made public until last Friday. To date, no explanation for her dismissal has been provided by Chiara or administration officials, but the former senior Justice Department official confirmed she was asked to resign in December and was in negotiations to stay in her post.

Realistically, federal appointments are never apolitical. But while U.S. attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president, they are traditionally recommended by federal judges and senators from the regions they serve, and are ultimately confirmed by the Senate. But thanks to a change put into the Patriot Act by Pennsylvania Republican Arlen Specter when it was reauthorized in late 2005, Gonzales and the White House gained the power to fill vacancies with interim appointees who can hold office for indefinite terms. Earlier this month, the Senate Judiciary Committee put forth legislation to restore limits for those terms (and thereby congressional vetting for long-term hires), but a full Senate vote on the bill was blocked by Republicans.

Incoming presidents are known to overhaul the corps of U.S. attorneys installed by prior administrations. Upon taking office, both Presidents Clinton and Bush replaced nearly all of the head prosecutors serving in the Justice Department's 94 districts nationwide. But it is rare for even one U.S. attorney to otherwise be dismissed during a president's term -- and in this case, all those dismissed by Bush were his own appointees.

Experts see a continuing pattern that began long ago: A Bush White House seizing greater executive power to the detriment of democratic principle.

"No doubt this is a threat to the independent stature that the Justice Department as an institution has enjoyed over the years," said Sam Buell, an associate professor at Washington University School of Law in St. Louis and a former federal prosecutor under the current President Bush. "It goes against the 'hands off' tradition, which has insulated U.S. attorneys from criticisms of politics influencing their choices and handling of cases. This doesn't look like a decision that's been made in the best interest of law enforcement."

Indeed, several of the fired attorneys had stellar track records. Like Iglesias in New Mexico, Daniel Bogden steps down Wednesday from the helm of a U.S. attorney's office in Nevada that saw unsurpassed achievements in law enforcement during his tenure. In a phone interview Monday, Bogden cited a record number of cases targeting guns, drugs, identity theft and sexual exploitation, among other criminal issues.

"To this day, I've never been told of any deficiencies in my performance or that of my office," Bogden said. "I've never been called by anyone suggesting that I should do something differently on policy, or that I was going against their policy."

In Seattle, John McKay's record as U.S. attorney has left many observers baffled by his dismissal. The raison d'être of the Bush White House is supposed to be the war on terrorism -- and McKay, by many measures, was an invaluable lieutenant in that battle.

McKay was appointed by Bush shortly after terrorists struck the United States on Sept. 11, 2001. Over the next five years, in a major port city and a border region critical for antiterrorist operations, he personally handled high-profile prosecutions, including that of Ahmed Ressam, who had driven across the Canada-U.S. border with plans to bomb Los Angeles International Airport at the turn of the millennium. In 2004, at a time when poor coordination among law enforcement agencies had been judged at least partly to blame for the 9/11 attacks, McKay developed an innovative data-sharing system that continues to be rolled out today in law enforcement offices nationwide.

Just over five months ago, on Sept. 22, 2006, the Justice Department completed a comprehensive evaluation of McKay's office, filled with high marks on both criminal and counterterrorism matters, including McKay's efforts to build greater cooperation among law enforcement agencies in both the United States and Canada. McKay "has been responsible for major advances in a cooperative cross-border effort," the report said. "All involved in these efforts pointed to U.S. Attorney McKay as the individual most responsible for the dramatic increase in cooperation."

"The report says nothing about me with regard to management or policy differences," McKay said in an interview last week. "Counterterrorism was our No. 1 priority, and I put an enormous amount of my personal time into it." He added, "If there were performance issues of any kind, they didn't tell me about it, and to this day I'm unaware of any."

"This is a huge loss," said Gil Kerlikowske, Seattle's chief of police. "I've worked with a lot of U.S. attorneys in my time and John is absolutely at the top of the ladder, not only on issues of terrorism but on law enforcement in general. I can tell you that if they're saying John's dismissal was performance related ... I find that almost inconceivable." Kerlikowske noted that McKay had crucial perspective, having served as a White House fellow at the FBI. "He knew how tough the barriers could be between law enforcement agencies, and he really helped break down those walls with information sharing."

"He was a champion with all the federal law enforcement agencies, but especially with ATF," said Kelvin Crenshaw, a 19-year veteran of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the special agent in charge of the Seattle field office. "He's one of the best U.S. attorneys I've ever worked with."

Administration officials have declined to provide further explanation for any of the attorneys' dismissals, including McKay's. On Feb. 14, McNulty, the deputy attorney general, gave a private briefing to the Senate Judiciary Committee, but afterward, Patty Murray, D-Wash., said, "I heard nothing from Department of Justice officials that changed my mind about John McKay's performance." Other senators who were present concurred with that view, according to a Democratic congressional aide briefed on the closed-door session.

Questions remain about how the Bush administration will seek to fill the newly vacant posts. Some former Justice Department officials say they believe that the administration has since revised its plans to reward political loyalists with the jobs, due to the backlash against the decision to push out Cummins in Arkansas and hand his post to Griffin. Earlier this month, the administration withdrew Griffin's name from consideration for a permanent appointment, though he remains in office indefinitely.

But if other recent appointees are an indication, the administration may be intent on installing conservatives with close ties to the White House. According to a Jan. 26 report by McClatchy Newspapers, since last March the administration has named at least nine U.S. attorneys who fit that profile, most of them hand-picked by Gonzales under the little-noticed provision of the Patriot Act that has since become law. They include Jeff Taylor, previously an aide to both Gonzales and former Attorney General John Ashcroft; Alexander Acosta, a protégé of conservative Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito; and Edward McNally, a former senior associate counsel to President Bush.

And some critics expect that, despite the recent uproar over Cummins and the other attorneys' firings, the Bush White House will continue to find ways to erode the independence of the Justice Department.

"This is an administration that has not hesitated to discard conventional wisdom just because people say it's wrong," said Buell, the former federal prosecutor under Bush. "This is an administration that looks at the landscape and isn't afraid to rewrite the rules and say, 'We're going to do it our own way.'"

I heard some news this morning that happened in December but got little to no coverage at the time. The news item said that in December US Attorney General summarily and without cause removed seven US Attorneys using a little-known provision of the (so-called) 'Patriots Act' enabling him to do this. It was said that there was no performance-based reason for firing any of the seven but that some things are known about the people fired and the replacements he installed. The replacement he put into the position in Arkansas was described as a friend/protege of Karl Rove. The person fired in San Diego had been the lead and strong prosecutor in the corruption and scandal case of Randall Cunningham, and the case is not yet finished - even though Cunningham is down for the count.
The other part of this story is that this new process, used in these Gonzales firings for the first time, enables this kind of peremptory strong-arm tactic without any Congressional oversight at all. Kick out the people prosecuting (not persecuting, larrym, prosecuting) your cronies and put in your pals who won't be so quick to prosecute corruption next time around. I am reading regularly that one historian, pundit and analyst after another is naming this administration as THE most corrupt and debauched in American history. They put robber barons and tea-pot dome crookery to shame.

I also heard that there was a fairly sizable demonstration of the women wearing pink anti-war group (name escapes me at the moment)heckling Hillary Clinton at last month's 'audition' of the Democratic presidential candidates. Other than an anti-war stance, I do not know their politics as a group, but they were protesting Clinton's vote for the war. To hear Clinton say 'we did not know....we did not have the facts....if we knew then what we know now....' is just dishonest. She did know. We ALL knew, for cryin' out loud, and they - Senators - knew more than the rest of us! So she is not telling the truth. Obama did not have to make that vote but he has opposed the invasion from the beginning. Dennis Kucinich, opposed from the beginning. Edwards? - Well, hard to get past a 28,000 square foot house..... who NEEDS a 28,000 sq. ft. house?! Nobody.

Anybody see The Colbert Report (satire, folks, parody.....funny, funny, funny) when he interviews a Ms.?Diane? Deborah? Dickerson, author of 'The End of Blackness' about Obama, about being black, being African-American, being white, etc., etc........ ohmygosh! I was falling off my chair laughing. It was the best illustration of how utterly absurd it has all become that I have ever seen. Catch it if you can.

It is frequently said when a candidate becomes the often butt of jokes on shows like Jay Leno it is the kiss of death for their election chances. I do not know if there are any facts to back this up but lately Bush, Hillary, Edwards, The Mayor of San Francisco and Al Gore have been regulars for Jays nightly humor. Gore has been on Leno I think a couple of times. I have to admit he had a good sense of humor and gave as good as he got.

Last night concerning Hillary: "Hillary said this week that if elected President she will immediately bring the troops home" Jay said "she cannot even keep Bill home how is she going to bring an army home"

Jay quoted a fact that 17 million men have erectile dysfunction. He said if Hillary is elected that will double.

The Mayor of San Francisco has announced that he is going into 4 weeks of rehab. That should solve his problem promptly.

Of course President leads the pack in Leno humor and they have a great guy playing bush who looks very much like him and has his speech and mannerisms down to a tee. I doubt we will ever see Hillary on the Jay Leno show. I guess most of you read about Hillary's boo boo
at a recent press conference. She was asked some sort of question about dealing with bad men. She said something to the effect she had a lot of experience dealing with bad men. Later she had to say she did not mean Bill but if ever there was a Freudian slip that was one and it had traction for about 3 days.

I wonder if Hillary, the President and others who are often made fun of on these shows ever watch them? President Clinton and Monica still has traction on these shows and will probably live on forever. Looking back I still have a laugh about the entire episode. Arkansas. Our former Governor for 10 years in Arkansas has recently announced he has formed a committee to explore his options for running for President. Believe me he will. What you may not believe is that he is from the same town as Bill. Hope, Arkansas. His name is Mike Huckabee. He is really a very bright man and a awesome speaker. He is thought of highly by the Governors and was elected to some high position in the Governors Conference. I have had dinner with him as my boss was a big supporter when he first ran for President. He has made the news this last year by dropping over 100 lb. He has been running in Marathons and I think the last one may have been the NYC marathon. I doubt the country is ready for another President from Hope, Arkansas but get ready to see him in the primaries. I think he will go over well in the primaries but as of now I think Juliani may be the favorite. Polls have him beating Hillary significantly in the state of N.Y.

Bush is a lame duck like all Presidents who are ending their second term in office. The Democrats now control both houses so what is going to happen that is going to effect our lives big time? Are Democrats born with a gene that makes them inherently smarter that Republicans? Are they more moral? Do they arrive on this earth with higher IQ's? Fact is Democrats and Republicans are mere mortals. It is only supporters that label Democrats or Republicans superior and try to place them on some sort of pedestal where they can magically cure all the problems of the U.S. if not the world.

The one thing that political parties can do is tank an economy by imposing the wrong taxes or passing laws that restrict business or some other way out scenario. Not much is said about it but we are in the midst of the strongest economies we have ever had. The stock market is at an all time high. The unemployment rate is around 4.5% when most economist consider 7% to be full employment as people are constantly moving from one job to another. I sure remember 16-17% treasury bonds and even at that I was afraid to buy them as we had runaway inflation under Jimmy Carter. More people own their own homes than ever before. Interest rates are running around 5% and inflation has been well under control for some years. All of our politicans are afraid to touch the third rail of Social Security even the Democrats. Hillary has hinted at some sort of health care reforms. That may be ok but not a hair brained idea like she tried to pull behind closed doors when Bill was elected. I am totally unsure of where Hillary will be the nominee or not. She has as many haters as supporters and her views are well known. Obama is a popular guy but with little experience. Edwards I just do not know about. I do know he just built something like a $23 million dollar home on a 100 or so acres of prime land. Made most of his money on the tobacco law suits. If I were running for President and running partly on helping the poor and middle class I think I would have put off that mansion until after the election.

and......

Besides increasing the minimum wage from the current $5.15 an hour, the bill would extend for five years a tax credit for businesses that hire the disadvantaged and provide expensing and depreciation advantages to small firms. The tax breaks would be paid for by closing loopholes on offshore tax shelters, by capping deferred compensation payments to corporate executives and by removing the deductibility of punitive damage payments and fines.

Senators also adopted an amendment that would bar companies that hire illegal immigrants form obtaining federal contracts. That measure was designed to encourage companies to participate in an employee identification program that can weed out undocumented workers.

The leaders understand their job is to protect the new moderates. They will be given the plum spots in committees. So yes I do think so.

The 06 election was about the moderate/swing voter. I explained all of that earlier.

The funniest thing is that while Republicans were counting on Dems to have no strategy for 06 they did. It was quiet and precise. Each vulnerable Republican was matched with a conservative Democrat.........like Rep. Ellsworth in Indiana. He is pro-life, against gay marriage and an active hunter who is pro-second amendment and he was the sheriff. You see when you take away their talking points they have nothing to sell. Senator Casey is pro-life, against gay marriage and pro second amendment. The list goes on and on.

The only liberal of the group is Senator Sherrod Brown and he is no looney left type.

When we look to 08 the 06 election set the stage. If Republicans are smart they will pay attention. Santorum, Allen and Frist are out. Feingold and Kerry are either out or will be.

My prediction
The top 3 Republicans will be McCain, Giulliani and Romney.

"Edwards' stand on trade issues (as opposed to Kerry who was for "free" trade) coupled with a more centrist stand on social issues makes him a strong contender. He was too much a neophyte to have won the Dem nomination in 2004. Now, he has the name recognition, additional years of experience and is a charismatic individual and good campaigner. Additionally, like Clinton, he is a southern Democrat which reinforces his image as a moderate. I think that his political strength could surprise people in 2008.

Bayh, in my opinion, should he be able to move ahead of the big Dem power brokers, may be the strongest candidate the Democrats cold run.

Edwards' stand on trade issues (as opposed to Kerry who was for "free" trade) coupled with a more centrist stand on social issues makes him a strong contender. He was too much a neophyte to have won the Dem nomination in 2004. Now, he has the name recognition, additional years of experience and is a charismatic individual and good campaigner. Additionally, like Clinton, he is a southern Democrat which reinforces his image as a moderate. I think that his political strength could surprise people in 2008.

Kerry has too much "baggage" including his record on trade issues, controversial stands on Vietnam and military issues, not to mention his recent gaffe concerning our servicemen in Iraq. It is hard to see him being able to win a Presidential election for the Democrats.

Gore's environmental record simply does not match his rhetoric. Consider the fact that the Clinton/Gore administration did very little to advance alternative energy during their 8 years in power. I have been a huge fan of alternative energy development since 1973, the Arab oil embargo, not only for environmental reasons but for energy independence and divestment from Middle East oil production. All prior administrations, GOP and Dem did very little in that area. I don't believe that the Democrats need an endorsement from Gore.

Hillary Clinton is too divisive and controversial as a Presidential candidate. She has massive financial support and can afford an image "make over" as well as an expensive PR campaign to change her image and the perception of the public.

Bayh, in my opinion, should he be able to move ahead of the big Dem power brokers, may be the strongest candidate the Democrats cold run. He is a true moderate, charismatic, has no "baggage," and can enunciate clearly the issues of concern to the middle class. He can also allay concerns about Democrats being "soft" on defense and national security.

Obama, despite his "star" quality, does not have the seasoning to be a strong candidate in 2008, somewhat similar to Edwards' situation in 2004. Like Edwards, he would be a strong choice for the VP nomination.

08 Democrat predicitons View Thread
Posted by marie on 11/12/06 at 10:12

My predictions based on the 2 names Dem leadership is discussing and on who is ahead in Iowa. Democratic leadership has a very clear strategy.......as you can see it worked in 06.

The Democratic bid for 08 will focus on the poor, the middle class and national security(including the Iraq war). After that it will be all about fiscal conservative issues. The moderate Democrats seemed to evolve into what the Republicans use to be on that issue.

>Clinton will run and will cozy up to Gov. Vilsack (Iowa)to increase her odds there. The first person Vilsack called before he announced his intention to run in 08 was Clinton. We could be looking at a possible Clinton/Vilsack ticket if their strategy works. Clinton's platform will be "national security" and the "middle class". Right now Clinton is the candidate shield. She can take the heat better then anyone in Washington and it is sooooooooo working. Clinton is considered moderate.

>Obama will stretch it out as long as possible and then endorse one or both of the names being discussed in DC. Great game plan in my opinion. If Dems don't make it in 08 he will be next in line to run in 12. His name will be out there and he he'll have the record. My understanding is that he does intend to run for president but am not sure he'll go for it in 08. Is he looking at a veep spot? I think "yes". Obama is a moderate.

>Gore will not run but will endorse the candidate who has the strongest record on alternative energy and environmental issues. His endorsement will carry weight with the Dems farther to the left.

>Edwards will run and his platform will be "the poor". Edwards has polled ahead of the pack in Iowa. He will will do well in Nevada (labor loves him out there) and his home state of South Carolina during the primaries. Hmmmm.

>Bayh will run and his platforms will be the "middle class" and "national security". Because he was a successful governor before he was a US Senator he'll draw attention. He is running slightly "right" of Hillary and will be the one to watch in New Hampshire. He is the darling of the coveted swing voter.

>Richardson will run. He will focus on his foreign relations back ground. I think we will see him emerge from the pack but won't be able to get in the top three. He is also a moderate that is well loved in New Mexico.

>Vilsack has anounced he will run but I think we're looking at someone who is auditioning for a Veep spot.

>Biden has announced but now that he is the chair of the Foriegn Relations Committee I'm not so sure he will run. He has more power in that position for a longer period of time. He and Lugar are two of the best loved committee chairs in the Senate. Why? Because they are both moderates and believe strongly in bi-partisanship.

>Kerry I'm not sure yet. But his insight from his loss in 04 was on spot. His platform will be a universal healthcare program.

That's my list and I'm sticking to it. ;)

BTW Feingold and Warner are not running.

We asked likely Iowa voters what they'd do in some hypothetical 2008 matchups in the state. The two GOP front-runners, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arizona Sen. John McCain, beat the Democratic front-runners - Clinton, former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards and Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry.

the good news for people like me is that I like both Giuliani and McCain. Not enough to vote for them over Bayh but i like them. Well they are about 6 & 7 on my list. Of course the fun loving ultra super dooper conservative end of the Republican party will not be happy with the results.

They SHOULD worry that people like Carville, Soros, Dean, Pelosi, Kennedy and Franken are NOT hiding under beds. They would be much better off. Instead, Hillary will crush any dem be it Kerry, Edwards etc. for her own selfish needs. This will result in the Dems getting handed another loss for the Whitehouse. Inspite of all the Bush bashing they will still lose. Then there will be another parade of people claiming "stolen election" Unless a dem wins then watch how much silence you hear from the left about stolen elections and disenfranchised voters.

At this point in time the top 5 Dems are : Clinton, Edwards, Warner, Bayh and Kerry. At this time any one of them can get it in 08.

I'm not a Clinton basher. She is a fine politician who has had a great deal of experience fending off verbal abuse from the right. However, that does not transend into electability and that's what we will be seeking in 08.

If I had to choose between the 2 it would be Gore. You're right on Hillary, folks are hot or cold on her. And she has some baggage with Whitewater. I like her just fine although I don't think she's got it to win. I don't believe Gore will run. There just isn't evidence of campaign funding etc.......like going to NH, Iowa and now SC and Nevada.

The top 5 dems are: Clinton, Edwards, Warner, Bayh and Kerry. The dark horse candidates are Gore and Obama. I support and volunteer my efforts for Senator Evan Bayh. My preference would be Bayh on the ticket with any one of those I just listed. Why? Cause he is truely a unifier and any candidate would benefit from having him on their ticket. His foreign relation skills are hard to beat. And he's the only Dem who has the guts to talk about National Security.

Parke-Davis’ Neurontin(R) (gabapentin capsules) significantly reduced chronic neuropathic pain View Thread
Posted by Bryan W. on 3/30/06 at 18:49

The wonder drug for neuropathic pain...Like the type we with TTS get!!! Here is some info from my cyber search of the pain killer! Enjoy a better life...pain free! My Pod said if my nerve rejuvination does not end all of my pain then this would be the one he would perscribe for me! I have to say from what I read it does seem to work and the side effects for most are nil! Esp. good news that it works well in older patients with DPN..........

One study examined the effects of Neurontin on patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), a chronic, often painful condition that affects approximately half of the estimated 1.5 million diabetes patients in Canada. A companion study examined the use of Neurontin in patients suffering from post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN), the chronic neuropathic pain condition that can follow shingles (herpes zoster).

Results of the national, multi-centre DPN study demonstrated that patients suffering from diabetic peripheral neuropathy experienced a significant reduction in pain after treatment with the drug and that 26 percent of those patients treated with Neurontin were pain-free at the end of the trial compared to 15 percent of patients treated with placebo. This difference was statistically significant.

Findings of the national, multi-centre PHN study showed that patients suffering from the condition experienced a statistically significant reduction in average daily pain after treatment with Neurontin. Importantly, almost twice as many patients treated with Neurontin (16 percent) were pain-free versus those treated with placebo (8.8 percent) at the end of the trial. Both studies also showed that patients receiving Neurontin experienced improvement in sleep and overall quality of life.

The PHN study was a multi-centre, randomised, double-blind study conducted over a treatment period of eight weeks and involved 229 PHN patients.

"The results of this trial are particularly encouraging, given the hundreds of thousands of people suffering from this debilitating and extremely painful condition," said R. Norman Harden, M.D., director of the Centre for Pain Studies, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. "Further, the age distribution of patients with PHN includes a disproportionate number of older patients, which is a difficult population to treat."

PHN is a syndrome of often intractable pain following herpes zoster, a condition commonly known as shingles. It is estimated that 10 to 20 percent of Canadians will be affected by herpes zoster in their lifetime. In the majority of patients, the condition is characterised by intense pain that has been described by sufferers as burning, deep aching, tearing and electric shock-like. While the pain tends to fade over a period of time, as many as 15 percent suffer from chronic neuropathic pain that persists beyond the resolution of the herpes zoster rash. Pain that persists for three months after resolution of this rash is commonly defined as PHN. PHN may persist for years in some patients.

The DPN study was a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial conducted over a treatment period of eight weeks involving a total of 165 patients. The patients enrolled had a one to five-year history of pain associated with diabetic neuropathy.

"DPN is a neuropathic condition that is, historically, extremely difficult to treat," said Keith R. Edwards, M.D., director, Neurological Research Centre, Bennington, VT. "This study is one of the largest of its kind in this condition. In patients with DPN, gabapentin substantially reduced neuropathic pain and was well tolerated.

“Further, more significant pain reduction was observed in some patients after only two weeks of treatment. All of these findings combined are clinically important."

DPN is characterised by nerve fibre loss that can result in symptoms ranging from diminished pain and temperature perception, paresthesia (pins and needles) and neuropathic (sharp or burning) pain, to loss of light touch and muscle weakness. Other symptoms include insomnia, anxiety, depression, weight loss and a general decline in quality of life.

"In this study, Neurontin reduced pain and sleep interference associated with the condition and also exhibited positive effects on mood and quality of life," Dr. Edwards said.

Diabetes is a clinical condition that impairs the ability of the body to produce or properly respond to insulin, a hormone essential for life. Type II diabetes, also known as adult onset or non-insulin-dependent diabetes (despite the fact that many require insulin injections) usually occurs in those over 45 and overweight. Type II diabetes affects the majority of the 1.5 million Canadian diabetics and it is estimated that another 750,000 people are undiagnosed. Type I diabetes, also known as juvenile onset or insulin-dependent diabetes usually starts in children or young adults who are slim and affects about 10 per cent of people with diabetes in Canada.

The pain associated with DPN in diabetic patients is, at times, constant, severe and deep, and is frequently associated with mood and sleep disturbances as well as a decline in function. Pain in diabetic patients with DPN affects the feet and ankles most often and, to a lesser extent, the lower extremities above the knees and upper extremities.

Neurontin is indicated as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial seizures with and without secondary generalisation in adults (greater than 12 years old). Neurontin is contraindicated in patients who have demonstrated hypersensitivity to the drug or its ingredients.

The most common adverse events during clinical trials were somnolence (19.3 percent versus 8.7 percent with placebo); dizziness (17.1 percent versus 6.9 percent with placebo); ataxia (12.5 percent versus 5.6 percent with placebo); fatigue (11 percent versus five percent with placebo); nystagmus (8.3 percent versus four percent with placebo); and tremor (6.8 percent versus 3.2 percent with placebo).

***************************************************************************

Neurontin has been studied since 1983 and was approved by the FDA for the control of epilepsy in 1994. Parke-Davis has been successfully conducting long-term clinical trials in doses at 2400-3600mg a day.

In 1996, research for other purposes began appearing and there has been a quiet revolution of patients and doctors finding that Neurontin is helpful in illnesses other than epilepsy. Neurontin being prescribed for disorders other than epilepsy is called "off-label" use.

Neurontin has a growing multitude of medical studies showing it effective for off-label illnesses such as:

* Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD),
* brain injury,
* essential tremors,
* sleep dysfunction,
* Interstitial Cystitis,
* refractory GU tract pain,
* agitation secondary to dementia,
* muscle cramps,
* inflammatory injuries,
* tinnitus
* phantom limb pain
* cocaine dependence
* TMJ,
* neuropathic pain,
* Shoulder-Hand Syndrome,
* hemifacial spasms,
* peripheral neuropathy,
* the pain, nystagmus, and spasticity of Multiple Sclerosis (MS),
* trigeminal neuralgia,
* prophylaxis and for acute migraines,
* for pain secondary to epidural fibrosis,
* acute and postherpetic neuralgia (Shingles),
* acute pain from Herpes Simplex,
* post-operative pain,
* myofascial pain (MPS),
* radiation myelopathy,
* cancer pain
* Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS),
* Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS) (but not its progression),
* Periodic Leg Movement (PLM),
* chronic pain not already mentioned here,
* Bipolar Disorder,
* social phobias,
* somatiform pain with depression,
* mood disorders,
* both situational and clinical depression,

and it was concluded in one study that gabapentin (Neurontin) "represents a novel class of antihyperalgesic agents" (pain medications) and millions of us have proven that.

Dr. Seastrunk, a psychiatrist from Texas, was one of the first doctors who found Neurontin helpful in CFS and FMS and he theorized that is because there is a focal brain injury that Neurontin can minimize. Off-label research now points to the probability that Neurontin decreases Substance P activity and its mechanism may involve activation of the neuronal GABAg1,g2 receptors negatively coupled to voltage-dependent calcium channels, thereby lessening pain signals to the brain.

NOW WHAT DO THE PATIENTS THINK OF IT??????????????

Off-Label Uses: What isn't Neurontin used for? It's the late-20th century's most successful snake oil! Monotherapy Treatment for Epilepsy (used all by its lonesome). Bipolar Disorder - basically useful only if bad anxiety or substance abuse is also present, or nothing else has worked. And then usually only as an add-on med. Migraines. Neuropathic pain. Depression. PTSD. Alcoholism (one study has it working well on mild-to-moderate alcohol withdrawal, another showed it to be insignificant for acute withdrawal). Anxiety (including panic and social phobia, but Parke-Davis' data are suspect, and public speaking). Sleep Disorders. Restless Leg Syndrome/PLMS, MS, Chronic Fatigue. Menopausal Symptoms. Treating HIV/AIDS-related Neuropathy. Phantom Limb Pain. Cocaine Abuse. And probably a bunch of stuff I don't even know about. Sometimes it's quite useful in these applications, sometimes it's prescribed first just because it's an anticonvulsant with a very low side effect profile and doctors are sick and tired of people whining about how medication sensitive they are.



Neurontin's Pros and Cons:

Pros: It has a very low side effect profile. Given that what you take is what works on your brain there are few drug-drug interactions (but they are wacky). Neurontin (gabapentin) is a proven pain reliever that doesn't mess with you as much as the other anticonvulsants do, and works better for non-migraine pain better than most of the others.



Cons: It doesn't work for a lot of people, mostly because of bioavailabilty issues. Because of Parke-Davis' allegedly sleazy marketing practices you can't get samples from your doctor anymore.

Neurontin's side effects:

Typical Side Effects: The usual for anticonvulsants, albeit to a lesser degree for most people. Although at the higher dosages Mouse and I, especially Mouse, experience memory problems. The main problems with Neurontin are dizziness, cloudy thinking, fatigue and klutziness.



Not So Common Side Effects: Edema. Really goofy thinking - one person taking it calls the med, "Morontin." If being treated for bipolar disorder, don't be surprised if it results in hypomania instead of working as a mood stabilizer - as that has been reported in the clinical trials for epilepsy, in at least one of the studies on Neurontin (gabapentin) as a treatment for bipolar, and several times in the online support groups. I haven't found any studies to back this up, but my doctor tells me that at the higher dosages Neurontin (gabapentin) does start to hit the dopamine receptors. The combination of GABA and dopamine may be just the thing for depression, but can get some people really goofy, and not necessarily in a good way.

These may or may not happen to you don't, so don't be surprised one way or the other.



Freaky Rare Side Effects: Taste perversion, abnormal accommodation, libido increased, baby you are coming over to my house right now! I've got plenty of Neurontin on hand!

You aren't going to get these. I promise.




Interesting Stuff Your Doctor Probably Won't Tell You: Neurontin (gabapentin) is a prime example of the Law of Diminishing Returns in that the more you take the less you get. Seriously. It's right there in the PI sheet. "As dose is increased, bioavailability decreases. Bioavailability of gabapentin is approximately 60%, 47%, 34%, 33%, and 27% following 900, 1200, 2400, 3600, and 4800 mg/day given in 3 divided doses, respectively." You can try to squeeze out a little more absorption by taking it with food, but you buy a whopping 14% increase, on average, in the bioavailability. Sometimes every little bit helps.



Neurontin (gabapentin) is basically a neurotransmitter in a pill. Rather, it's close to the neurotransmitter GABA. GABA can't cross the blood-brain barrier. True synthesized GABA would have to be injected straight into your noggin. Sorry to make you cringe. The point is, unlike most psychiatric drugs, what you take in the capsule (or tablet or oral solution) is what more-or-less what works in your brain. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't need your liver to make what really does the job. That means it will play well with practically every other medication there is, right? For us crazies and spazzes, that's right. The only thing we have to be careful with is stuff like Maalox. As a lot of meds cause tummy troubles, a lot of us use OTC remedies like Maalox. Maalox interferes a bit with Neurontin (gabapentin). You just have to wait a couple hours after taking antacids to take Neurontin (gabapentin).

But people who take Neurontin (gabapentin) for pain, and that includes a lot of us crazies, as fibromyalgia is far too common in the bipolar community, Neurontin (gabapentin) has a weird drug-drug interaction with opiates. The opiates make Neurontin (gabapentin) work better, but the Neurontin (gabapentin) makes the opiates less efficient! It's weird, and since Neurontin (gabapentin) isn't really metabolized, who the hell knows what the deal is with that. This is spelled out in the PI sheet, but who reads those, right? When you take Neurontin (gabapentin) along with hydrocodone (a.k.a. Vicodin), it decreases the bioavailability of the hydrocodone by up to 22%! While the bioavailability of Neurontin (gabapentin) is increased by 14%. It's even odder when combined with morphine. As Mouse points out there's an element of timing involved, as the one article on the interaction has morphine administered two hours before the Neurontin (gabapentin). The morphine was unaffected, having pretty much been on its way towards peak plasma, but the Neurontin (gabapentin) bioavailability was increased by a whopping 44%! We have no idea if this effect carries over to the artificial opiods, like Demerol or buprenorphine.

Meanwhile taking naproxen (a.k.a. Aleve) increases Neurontin's bioavailability by 12-15%, while there is no apparent affect on naproxen's bioavailability.






Neurontin's Dosage and How to Take Neurontin: Given all the different things for which Neurontin (gabapentin) is used, I'm not about to cover all the possible dosages. I'm just going to cover the FDA-approved applications in adults and bipolar disorder. For everything else it's between you and your doctor.



For shingles start with 1 300mg dose. On day 2 take your 300mg dose two times a day. On day 3 take it three times a day. Then work your way up as required to a dosage range of 1,800 to 3,600mg a day divided over three to four doses a day.



For epilepsy Parke-Davis recommends you start right out with the therapeutic dosage of 900mg a day, divided over 3 300mg doses. What the hell? This is an add-on medication folks, how about a little titration? My advice is to follow the schedule for shingles. Give your body a chance to get used to this stuff. The effective therapeutic range is 900 to 2,400mg a day, in doses taken three to four times a day. You shouldn't let 12 hours pass between doses.



For bipolar, remember everything is off-label, experimental and, frankly, Neurontin (gabapentin) is not a first-line bipolar medication. Follow the schedule for shingles, although you may allow yourself twice as long to get used to the med - two days at each dosage. Don't expect to feel much until you get to 900mg a day. Like epilepsy, once you get up to 900mg a day, don't let more than 12 hours pass between each dose. If you don't feel anything by the time you get up to 1800mg a day, just give up. If Neurontin (gabapentin) is doing something for you, that's one thing, but if it's not doing anything at all, don't just throw more at it.



Parke-Davis is all about taking it three times a day. My experience, my doctor's and the various studies I've looked at indicate that mileage always varies. There has even been one study on taking Neurontin (gabapentin) three or four times a day. I found that taking it four times a day works better for me than three times a day.



As for how much you can take, the sky is the limit. There is no known lethal dosage for Neurontin (gabapentin). The tablets are more likely to be a choking hazard than the risk of poisoning yourself from several bottles of the stuff. However, between the diminishing returns of bioavailability and the side effects of getting all that stuff in you it's just a pointless exercise to be taking megadosages of Neurontin (gabapentin). The real harm of a lot of Neurontin, from a psychiatric standpoint, is that it gets in the way of taking the right medications. If it works for you, fine. But if Neurontin (gabapentin) isn't doing squat at the normal therapeutic range, just give up and move on.





Days to Reach a Steady State: Two days after you're taking it at least three times a day.

When you're fully saturated with the medication and less prone to peaks and valleys of effects. You still might have peaks of effect after taking many meds, but with a lot of the meds you'll have fewer valleys after this point. In theory anyway.



How Long Neurontin Takes to Work: It should start to do something for you a couple days after you reach 900mg a day. But because of the whole bioavailability issue it may not be until you're somewhere in the range of 900-1800mg a day, presuming it will do anything at all for you.



Neurontin's Half-Life & Average Time to Clear Out of Your System: 5-7 hours. It's out of your system in 2 days.

How to Stop Taking Neurontin: Your doctor should be recommending that you reduce your dosage by 100-300mg a day every two days, 5-7 hour half-life, if not more slowly than that.

Like any anticonvulsant, if you've been taking Neurontin (gabapentin) for more than a couple months and you're up to or above 900mg a day you just can't stop cold turkey if you're not at the therapeutic dosage for another anticonvulsant that you know works for you, otherwise you risk partial-complex, absence seizures or even tonic-clonic grand mals, despite your never having had a seizure disorder before! The risk is worse if you're taking a lithium variant, and/or any antidepressant, especially Wellbutrin (bupropion hydrochloride). Anyone with a history of a seizure disorder who needs to stop taking an anticonvulsant cold turkey needs to be discussing that with two neurologists and not getting your information from some stupid web site. Get off your computer and start making appointments!

If you've worked your way up to a particular dosage, it's usually best to spend this many days at the next lowest dosage before going down the next lowest dosage before that and so forth. This is the least sucky way to avoid problems when stopping any psychiatric medication. Presuming you have the option of slowly tapering off them.




Comments: Be sure to read the section on anticonvulsants if you haven't done so already.

Approved by the FDA to treat epilepsy in December 1993 Neurontin (gabapentin) is the weakest of the semi-official mood stabilizers, but it works for me! Yet I am a known freak. Neurontin's main problem is in the digestive tract, and that is allegedly going to be solved with the new and improved version, pregabalin, which might be on the market by the time you read this. As you can see from the data above, Neurontin's bioavailability tends to be an issue as you take more of it. I've seen other figures indicating even lower bioavailability of Neurontin (gabapentin). Maybe it's because Neurontin (gabapentin) pretty much bypasses your liver and gets to your brain through the L-amino acid pathways. Thus because Mouse and I are total freaks with food allergies and quite sensitive to those sorts of things, we probably get way more Neurontin (gabapentin) absorption than most people. This is just a wild-ass guess on our parts.

Neurontin (gabapentin) has helped Mouse with her restless leg syndrome, and may be providing her with some mood stabilization.

The whole question comes up, is Neurontin (gabapentin) worth a damn as a mood stabilizer? Well it certainly shouldn't be used first without some good reason, such as a comorbid chronic pain ailment or partial onset seizures. Basically the existing data show that Neurontin (gabapentin) isn't that good of a mood stabilizer. At least, not if other stuff seems to work. However, if nothing else is working, adding Neurontin to the mix can sometimes help, although apparently not if rapid cycling is involved. It has helped me. How can I tell? First I tried to see what life would be like without Neurontin (gabapentin). Boy was that a bad time. Since then I switched from 300mg four times a day to 400mg three times a day, and found it to be less effective. If I missed a dose I was more susceptible to breakthrough hypomanias or depressions. At 400mg four times a day my memory is a bit worse, but if I forget a dose (which is now more likely since my memory is worse; like, duh) I don't have a breakthrough event. The reports at Remedy Find and on the bipolar support groups follow the studies - generally useless for most people, but the one missing piece or the one drug that worked when all else failed for a small number of people.
Neurontin (gabapentin) can also be effective in treating panic/anxiety disorders. It's not as good as the benzodiazepines or the antipsychotics in that regard, but if you're not able to tolerate any medication from either of those classes, Neurontin (gabapentin) is certainly better than nothing. I've found it most helpful in dealing with my agoraphobia. It doesn't do squat for Mouse's anxiety. Like people in the one study referenced, Mouse found Neurontin (gabapentin) to aggravate her OCD.

It did start to work on my epilepsy once I got up to the 900mg a day level. Mouse told me the absence seizures were fewer (but they didn't vanish completely until Topamax (topiramate) was added to the cocktail) and the partial-complex events also decreased in frequency and severity. Again it took the addition of Topamax (topiramate) to finally deal with all of my epileptic symptoms. But Neurontin (gabapentin) is quite the helpful medication for me.

As for all the pain stuff, it has helped Mouse with her fibromyalgia, with both the pain and the quality of her sleep, but she hits a wall of side effects. Above 1,200mg a day her memory becomes too bad for her to function. At 1,200mg a day Neurontin (gabapentin) helps a lot, but it could help more were it not for the memory issues. Other people we know taking it for chronic pain have reported a mixed bag of results, some positive some where nothing happened. The people posting at Remedy Find report along similar lines, with a few noting intolerable side effects.

Additionally Neurontin (gabapentin) has been studied and used for things like agitation in dementia patients, cocaine dependency and cravings, and alcohol withdrawal.

It all comes down to being literally able to stomach this stuff. Neurontin (gabapentin) is an effective medication for some people, a worthless sugar pill for others, and an evil source of side effects for a small unfortunate few. The real problem seems to have been Parke-Davis' allegedly sleazy marketing practices, which prevented people from getting the correct medications and has led to an anti-anticonvulsant backlash. They took a good thing and oversold it, screwing it up for everyone else. Expect the backlash to be worse now that Pfizer has settled for over 400 million dollars.

Now the Pfizer has acquired Parke-Davis and Neurontin (gabapentin) is to be superseded by pregablin, who knows what things will be like? Will pregablin be used for as many off-label applications? Will it be more or even less effective in some applications? Neurontin (gabapentin) will still be on the market, but things will be different after 2003.

Like other anticonvulsants, Neurontin (gabapentin) carries the rare but possible risk for aplastic anemia. Mouse had to deal with it when trying Lamictal (lamotrigine), and we know one person who had to stop taking Tegretol (carbamazepine USP) because of it. So if you see lots of weird bruises that you can't explain, see your doctor immediately!

Unfortunately, the injections of fat into the heel have not been proven to provide any long term relief. The fat breaks down quickly and does not provide relief. This was attempted by Dr. Edward Chairman in Philadelphia many years ago and was unsucessful. The only doctor that I'm aware of in the US that is presently injecting silicone is Dr. Sol Balkin in California. He injects silicone under high pressure areas below metatarsals, but I don't believe he's injecting it to replace fat in the heels, but it may be worth contacting him. Dr. Levine in NY is performing "cosmetic" foot procedures, so I'm not sure she's the right choice.

Elbow connected to foot bone? View Thread
Posted by Dorothy on 9/08/05 at 01:17

I recall some past discussions here relating elbow problems to PF and AT. This appeared on CNN's webpage FYI:

NEW YORK-The U.S. Open is in full swing, yet the top pros seem immune to the most common affliction in the game-tennis elbow.

That should tell us something. Maybe the pros escape tennis elbow because they hit the ball properly. Maybe we just never see the ones with tennis elbow, because they drop out. Maybe the ones who make it to center court have superior genes.

Whatever the reason, it's of little solace to the multitudes.

On every other level, many passionate tennis players are already nursing sore elbows from the summer season, and more are right behind them. Few who play frequently escape tennis elbow at one time or another, or so it seems.

When distress turns to agony, tennis usually stops, and many players find that unacceptable. So scores of therapies filling thousands of pages of the medical literature vie for their attention. Do any of them work?

Five Cochrane reviews and a new meta-analysis and systematic review conclude, essentially, that we don't know whether most of the treatments for lateral elbow pain produce a benefit.

This may come as a surprise to some patients - and doctors - but is old news to others who have run through a gamut of therapies with little to show for it.

A recent reading of the literature suggests that athletes may simply have to let nature take its course. Few treatments improve on the natural history (six to 24 months, on average), and few fare better than placebo.

This doesn't necessarily mean that physicians and patients should do nothing. In arguably the best randomized, controlled trial, testing a "wait-and-see" strategy against more-active interventions, players who gave their arms a sabbatical also received an education on the ergonomics of tennis and popped analgesics when they felt the need.

In the long run, this wait-and-see strategy provided virtually the same results as a highly structured - and undoubtedly expensive and time-consuming - physical therapy regimen that included deep-friction massage, stretching, and strengthening.

The same study showed that there was a clear short-term advantage for patients who received corticosteroid injections, but the benefit fizzled out within six weeks.

Though physical therapy was associated with the best long-term outcomes, wrote Nynke Smidt, Ph.D., and colleagues from the Vrij University in The Netherlands, "Whether or not the surplus value of physiotherapy is worth the additional resources needed for treatment is debatable."

Here, in a nutshell, is what the vast literature on tennis elbow tells us:

Most common treatments for lateral elbow pain lack scientific support.

There is some evidence of short-term benefit from steroid injections and topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. The evidence in favor of manipulation and exercise appears weaker.

For long-term benefit, there is evidence that a physical therapy regimen combining ultrasound, deep-friction massage, and exercise is beneficial.

A wait-and-see approach (relative rest with ergonomic advice and analgesics as needed) provides long-term benefits comparable to a combination physical therapy regimen and will often suffice.

There is insufficient or conflicting evidence to support the efficacy of oral NSAIDs, iontophoresis, orthotic devices, taping, ultrasound, acupuncture, or surgery.

There is evidence that extracorporeal shock wave therapy is not effective.

New studies with more rigorous research methods are needed. As W. Ben Kibler, M.D., long-time medical consultant to the Association of Tennis Professionals and Women's Tennis Association, once commented, "The amount of proposed solutions to a given problem is inversely proportional to the amount of true knowledge on the subject."

Tennis elbow is generally considered an overload injury of the common extensor muscles at the lateral humeral epicondyle. Despite the common view that it represents an inflammatory tendinitis (and is frequently referred to as lateral epicondylitis), experts now agree it is mostly a degenerative tendinopathy, or tendinosis.


The condition afflicts some 1% to 3% of adults, but its prevalence among tennis players (and many workers) is considerably higher. Half of the players scattered around any tennis club will have submitted to elbow pain at some point in their careers, and 75% to 80% of those episodes will have been chalked up to tennis elbow.


This thumbnail sketch of the most-studied therapies summarizes the results of five Cochrane Collaboration reviews, a new systematic review and meta-analysis in the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM), and the randomized controlled trial by Dr. Smidt and colleagues.


Steroid injections. In the trial by Dr. Smidt and colleagues, steroid injections (maximum of three) were significantly more effective at six weeks than either physical therapy or a wait-and-see approach. But by 52 weeks the success rate for the steroid group had dropped sharply. The authors suggest that patients in the steroid group might have returned to tennis too soon. "Patients might not have followed the advice given by their family doctor, and might have overtaxed their elbow after receiving an injection," they note.

Physical therapy. The combination of ultrasound, deep-friction massage, and exercise is remarkably successful over the long term. As the success rate for steroid injections declined after six weeks in Dr. Smidt's trial, it rose in equally dramatic fashion for the physical therapy and wait-and-see groups (to 91% and 83%, respectively, at one year).

Wait and see. In the long-term results of the trial by Dr. Smidt and colleagues, a wait-and-see strategy - rest, ergonomic advice and analgesics - had virtually the same chance of success as a physical therapy regimen or steroid injections. "In view of our results," concluded Dr. Smidt's group, "we have no reason to believe that awaiting spontaneous recovery will not be adequate treatment for patients with a short duration of symptoms at presentation."

Exercise. According to the new BJSM review, a single study suggests that stretches combined with isometric and isotonic exercise may provide short-term pain relief.

Manipulation. Trials of "adequate methodological quality are lacking," say the BJSM reviewers. Evidence of immediate, short-term benefit from elbow manipulation requires further study.

Acupuncture. After looking at four small trials of acupuncture, Cochrane reviewers concluded that there was insufficient evidence to either support or refute the therapy. The BJSM reviewers say there is "some evidence" of benefit at two to eight weeks, but the trials suffer from key methodological deficits.

NSAIDs. A Cochrane review looked at 14 trials. In the short term, topical NSAIDs were significantly more effective than placebo for up to four weeks. The value of oral NSAIDs was unclear. There was some evidence that corticosteroid injections were superior to oral NSAIDs. "More randomized trials are needed," the reviewers concluded.

Electromagnetic field therapy and iontophoresis. Poor-quality studies make it difficult to draw conclusions, say the BJSM authors. One small trial of adequate methodological quality reported no advantage of electromagnetic field therapy over placebo. The effectiveness of using electrical current to deliver medication to soft tissue (iontophoresis) is unclear, they say: There is no evidence that corticosteroid iontophoresis is better than saline placebo, and for NSAID ionization the evidence is contradictory.

Orthotics. Though the use of elbow braces and other orthotics abounds, the evidence to support them is weak. Results of two higher-quality trials are conflicting and make it impossible to draw firm conclusions, say the BJSM reviewers. A 2002 Cochrane review of five small trials came to the same conclusion.

Taping. One high-quality trial found that taping helps, but no more than a placebo.

Ultrasound and phonophoresis. Five trials found ultrasound (with or without hydrocortisone gel phonophoresis) no better than placebo. Given the methodological quality of the studies, say the BJSM authors, "there is insufficient evidence to either support or refute its use."

Laser. In their meta-analysis of pooled data, the BJSM reviewers found "no evidence of effect over that of a placebo intervention, in either the short or long term."

Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT). A 2002 Cochrane review of two trials found conflicting results and called for more research. Since then, evidence from two newer randomized controlled trials indicates that there is "no added benefit of ESWT over that of placebo," according to the BJSM authors.

Surgery. Cochrane authors could not find a single controlled trial of surgery for lateral elbow pain. "Without a control group, it is not possible to draw conclusions about the value of this modality of treatment," they concluded. "It is an unproven treatment modality."

Given the range of therapeutic options and the relatively weak evidence to support them, sports medicine experts naturally employ a wide array of strategies.


Many patients prefer a short-term approach, says Edward G. McFarland, M.D., director of adult orthopedics at Johns Hopkins.


"Most studies show that the injection groups are better than placebo or no treatment at six weeks or so," he says. "For many people that is what they want. Their elbow is killing them and they want it better. While long-term outcomes are helpful, short-term results should not be discounted. Most patients are not eager to hear 'wait it out' - or they wouldn't be seeing us. So I disagree with the long-term result concept - most of us live in the here and now."


Dr. Kibler, medical director of the Lexington Clinic Sports Medicine Center in Kentucky, spends much of his time teasing out the biomechanical factors that might account for the injury (grip, stroke, equipment, playing time), correcting them, and then devising rehabilitation strategies to overcome deficits in the kinetic chain (frequently inflexibility in the forearm extensor muscles, back, and trunk, and weakness of the posterior shoulder muscles).


He says he rarely employs steroid injections. "I find no reason for injections, given the downside of tendon injury and no proven long-term benefit. I will give some non-narcotic pain medicine if there is enough pain - but usually there is not."


In addition, he believes some players profit from surgery. "I do think that surgical correction does work well in selected groups who have failed conservative treatment," he says.


Dr. McFarland and Dr. Kibler - and virtually every other expert on upper extremity pain in athletes - agree that better studies are badly needed.

Interesting aside re: Hurricane Katrina View Thread
Posted by Kathy G on 9/07/05 at 16:06

The state of MA had Camp Edwards on Cape Cod prepared to take several hundred (It may be thousand. I'm not thinking very clearly right now.) evacuees from the storm. They decided they didn't want to come.

While some in the North apparently feel a bit insulted, I quite understand how they must feel. They would be totally out of their element. I can only personalize it and think how I would feel if someone down South offered to let me stay down there. I wouldn't feel comfortable. I'm a born and bred Northerner; the farthest south I've ever been was Virginia and that was briefly. The only Blacks I know can be counted on one hand and the farthest they've come from is the Boston area. One of the families I'm friendly with was born in this town. We don't pay any attention to the fact that they're Black because they don't pay any attention to the fact that we're White. It's actually kind of the way we all wish the whole country would be but we're just a microcosm, like many Northern towns.

Here we're asking these people to abandon their home and their culture. At least if they go to a southern state, they'll be with Southerners. They'd be cold in the North and trying to understand our strange dialect. Our food would be different. Not only that; it's one thing to evacuate to a neighboring state, it's another to evacuate to what would seem like a world away. They'd really wonder if they would lose any claim to their homes.

I went to the doctor for cortisone shots in my neck today, thus if I'm less coherent than usual, we can blame it on the drugs I'm taking for the pain. Afterward, I went to the Mall and saw where Filene's, a large department store was matching any donation made, dollar for dollar, and giving the money to the Red Cross. You didn't even have to make a purchase. I thought that was great and thus finally gave my donation, after trying to decide if another charity would be better.

My daughter works with a lady who comes from Mississippi and she says that we should be donating to faith-based charities but I have to think that the Red Cross is going to help someone. I don't know - maybe an atheist! I shouldn't jest, I know, but it's so hard to know to whom to give your money.

I have no doubt that tonight there will be all kinds of talk radio criticism but I for one, totally understand why none of the Southerners wanted to venture so far from their homes, even if they are destroyed. Home is home.

Elyse,
There was and perhaps still is some health care fraud that exists. Its not just in Podiatry but here is one that surfaced quite a while ago. The unfortunate thing is todays Pods. sometimes still pay the price for those that took advantage of the system because people remember it.

"Billing frauds A $2,600 toenail
Another form of fraud that has become prevalent under discounted fee-for-service managed care is upcoding÷claiming for a service with a higher reimbursement than the service actually performed. Instead of a small toenail fee, one podiatrist claimed a $2,600 foot operation for each nursing home patient. Most upcoding is not this blatant and easy to detect".

It's important to remember is that Health Care Fraud didn't just happen in the field of Podiatry it became a big business in many different areas of medicine.

"Health care fraud and abuse exist on many levels," says Edward Hopkins, health care lawyer at Steel Hector & Davis in West Palm Beach, Fla.

"Level one is fundamental theft. There is a great deal more of that than we'd like to believe. It starts with people entering a program such as Medicare with the intent from day one of fleecing the system for as much as possible until they are caught or decide they have enough. Here in south Florida, we have observed several forms of this. A durable medical equipment supplier buys a list of Medicare members and patients and fabricates claims. It can make millions in twelve to fifteen months. We're probably only talking about one-tenth of one percent of practitioners÷but they are draining a lot of money out of the health care system."

Sooner or later I think they get caught.

"help is on the way" View Thread
Posted by Eddie Davis on 3/12/05 at 12:08

To quote John Edwards campaign slogan, "help is on the way."
Another year and two new ESWT machines being approved. I have long predicted that this modality will proliferate and be a household word. More machines, more competitiom = lower fees for patients, more availablity for patients.
We can cure better than 90% conservatively already with good PF treatment and even better yet, with a self-eductaed patient (why sites like this are important). Now we will increase ESWT availability. ESWT cures about 85 to 90%. So the heel pain "epidemic" will be non-existent in 5 to 10 years. This is the beginning of the end for plantar fasciitis.

The tsunami in Mamallapuram View Thread
Posted by Julie on 2/06/05 at 11:44


Some of you may remember my talking about the part of the coast of southern India where I have spent time on several occasions. Mamallapuram is a small town/cum resort with several; fishing villages scattered along the beaches (on which I took my first barefoot walk four years ago, marking the start of my recovery from PF). I have been wondering ever since the tsunami how Mamallapuram had fared, whether it had been badly hit or not (I assumed it had, as it is just 40 miles south of Madras/Channai which was very badly hit) and today I finally hit on the right question to ask google: how did the tsunami affect Mamallapuram?

The first site that appeared was this:

http://www.beezone.com/edwardo/PeterM/Tusami/Tsunami.html

If you are interested, please have a look. It is a full report by a man who was there, and photographed the whole thing. The report of the tsunami itself is preceded by a description, with a series of beautiful pictures of the fishing people and their boats and nets - all destroyed by the wave. Reading this was heartbreaking for me, but I thought some of you might like to have a look at it.

Re: Sciatica View Thread
Posted by Kathy G on 1/15/05 at 09:12


Wendy,

It sure sounds like siatica to me. Mine starts in my lower back and buttock and goes down the inside of my leg but the doctors have commented that it's more common for it to go down the back of the leg. I like to be unusal. My big toe hurts when it's inflamed, too. And it's very different from muscle pain, it really burns.

My first attack of sciatica came in the middle of the night. I was nineteen years old and scheduled for allergy testing the next morning and got about two hours of sleep. I remember I was such a zombie and my back hurt so much the day of the testing that the intradermal tests didn't bother me at all.

When it acts up,I take muscle relaxants and pain killers and it usually lasts only a few days. Stretching and heat will help it, too. Driving absolutely kills me when it's hurting. Too much driving will trigger it off, too. On one of our trips to Prince Edward Island, I was in the throes of an attack and it was a fourteen hour drive. We divided it up into two days but it was a very painful two days. All I could take was tylenol because I couldn't take anything that would make me groggy while driving. Made a long trip seem even longer.

Hope you find something that will help you with it. My chiropractor can sometimes help me but not like in the old days, when my osteopath really could alleviate it.

Oh, Dr. Singleton is loacted in Watuaga, Texas...about 45 minutes from Dallas. I feel so lucky to have found him.
Please keep me posted if you wish on what you decide to do. I think it is important for all of us to communicate as we all can compare notes and maybe even help one another through it all. Having support through all of it I think is one of the most important factors.

Re: Our flu shot discussion was unnecessary, wasn't it? View Thread
Posted by john h on 10/25/04 at 12:47

Dorothy: I have no particular problem with John Edwards. I do have a problem with our legal system as it has evolved over the years. Even in my life time. It has not been many years ago that you would never see an Attorney advertise in the papers or on TV seeking clients to sue someone. To encourage someone to sue they advertise if you do not win you do not pay. This clearly will attract numerous people to sue even if they do not have a good case. The lawyers now are so specialized they advertse that they specialize in suing trucking companies, medical malpractice, birth problems,hospitsls and on and on. These attorneys will now take around 1/3 of any award. The cost to the public is enormous and often hidden. Even when the person being sued is not liable the cost of defending yourself is built into the cost of what ever product or service is provided. Doctors practice defensive medicine often ordering procedures that are unnecessary. Having worked in the over the road truck business I can tell you that liability insurance for an over the road tractor is so enormous that many small operators are driven out of business and the cost of all the products they deliver is passed on to the consumer. I would guess that liability insurance for one over the road tractor to be on the order of $3000-$5000 per year with a large deduct. If you are running a 1000 tractors like J.B. Hunt you can see it is very expensive It is ofter less expensive for defendants to settle rather than fight these lawsuits. Trial Lawyers defend thier practices with enormous contributions to political paries. Many of our Congressment and Senators are Lawyers so it is difficult to get any change through our Congress. I think everyone has the right to sue when wronged and should be compensated accordingly. The problem comes largely with punitive awards not the awards from actual damages. Results from the way we deal with these lawsuits is fewer Doctors in high risk specialities, higher medical cost, higher product cost for almost any product due to product liability insurance and trasportation liability insurance cost. The current shortage of flu vaccine is largely the result of no American producers (one actually) as the liability of producing this vaccine makes it unprofitable to enter the business. Ten years ago my company was sued for $10 million dollars for what I would consider a frivolous lawsuit. I knew the man well who sued us and he told me that my company was a large northern company and a southern jury would come down on his side. We of course had to defend ourselves and counter sued. Five years later after many depositions, investigations, etc we went to trial. The trial lasted 4 days and the jury came back with no fault on either side. Our legal expenses for my company was approximately $300,000. His were approximately the same. He was forced into bankruptcy. His lawyer who led him to believe he could win was $300,000 richer as was ours. We really need some sort of tort reform in this country as it is out of control and getting more so every day. Tort reform does not mean we are preventing people from suing and being compensated for their real damages.I personally know 4-5 lawyers who have become millionaires overnight. One good $20 million dollar winning lawsuit and yor are home free. How much did that lady receive who sued McDonalds for having coffee that was to hot and she burned herself when she spilled it in the car?

You wrote: "Edwards pocketed an enormous amount of money as a young trial lawyer..."
Is this a crime? Are you as offended by Cheney's "pocketing enormous amounts of money"? How about the Bush family? Does it really offend you more that Edwards "pocketed enormous amounts of money" for providing a legal outcome for a person whose life was destroyed by negligence, for example, than you might be offended that greedy rich men pocket enormous amounts of money while sending your sons and my daughters off to be maimed and die for their profits and their fathers and their corporate interests and those of their pals?
And all of the wealth of the Heinz family: they have done a lot of good with it, just in Pittsburgh alone. Garry Trudeau, who knew Bush in college, said he was mean and petty and small-minded - (close approximation of the quote) - just the kind of guy(s) and their "gals" who would find all lawsuits that benefit the underdog "frivolous" and those that benefit them and their kind, suitable.
Do you think trial lawyers of any age should not be paid well for fighting - and winning- against all the corporate power in the world?
What exactly IS a frivolous lawsuit? Can you actually cite one that is both frivolous AND actually went through to its completion where a greedy, nasty plaintiff won enormous amounts of money for oh, say, being disemboweled? (see the link that John H. provided)
I suspect that when you or your father or any of your family members really need a lawyer in life, you would crave a lawyer like Edwards who knows how to win for you - and you might be even be so lucky as to get one with a heart, in the process!

John H. - did you read the attorney's commentary/essay in the Law link that you provided? He said that, in fact, awards had actually declined - declined! (You wrote: "Not protection from a normal lawsuit but the enormous awards for pain and suffering or to punish the party being sued")

That attorney said that Edwards actually has a reputation of advocacy for personal responsibility.

And when it comes to "punish the party being sued", what is wrong with that if the party being sued has done acts punishable? Do you feel, similarly, that criminals should be exempt from punishment if they have been convicted of wrongdoing?

One of the cases cited, the girl who suffered the horrible, horrible damage when she was sucked into the drain - and there had been other similar complaints about that manufacturer - what do you think should happen? That the parents of that disemboweled girl should say, "Oh, well....these things happen..."!!!
What would YOU do if any of these things happened to you or your loved ones? I can tell you that I have personally had TWO events in my life in which I could easily have joined a class action lawsuit and won lots. Those who joined - and they did so rightly and completely justifiably - did win lots. I have no regrets, but neither do I think in the slightest that those plaintiffs had anything to do with driving up medical costs, driving doctors out of the medical business or with any diminished integrity. The myth of huge settlements for outrageous suits is just that: myth. Even on the occasions when a jury has awarded a huge settlement, they rarely hold up and a plaintiff rarely ends up with the awards that are so widely reported! Propaganda - and people increasingly are not buying it. I will assume that you are not talking about, and I certainly am not talking about, those cases of outright con artists, whether doctors, insurance companies,manufacturers or consumers/patients.

Where can I find information about John Edward's participation in frivolous lawsuits targeting pharmaceutical companies in the 80's? My father forwarded an interesting email which states that Edwards pocketed an enormous amount of money as a young trial lawyer. These lawsuits have forced many companies from producing the flu vaccine here in America. Interestingly enough, after doing some research on 'Google' (80's flu vaccine Edwards) the main story had been pulled from their website - freerepublic.com (10/22/2004.)

Chiron is NOT a British company. It is an AMERICAN company. Chiron Corporation is an Emoryville, California company with manufacturing facilities in several countries; flu vaccine is only one of its products.

The lawsuits in the 80's were not due to people contracting the flu after having received flu vaccinations; they were due to a number of people having DIED as a result of receiving the flu vaccine. I cannot find any evidence citing John Edwards as being involved in any of these lawsuits.

The posting about "Flu Vaccine Shortage" which calls Chiron a British company, falsely reporting John Edwards as winning a $5 million award for a man contracting the flu, is an "Urban Legend" being circulated on the internet. If John Edwards had, in fact, been involved in this it would have been broadcast from the treetops weeks ago by his opponents. One can check out John Edwards' cases on findlaw.com.

Having received this story by email, I set out to research its accuracy...thus the above information. Searching (and learning that is is way off base and full of inaccuracies) is what linked me to this site.

I don't have heel spurs, but know people who do and I know it is really a painful problem. I hope all of you guys find relief!

I don't anything about the flu aspect of your post, but I am going to take strong objection to your characterization of Mr. Edwards or of any lawyer as an "ambulance chaser". Maybe some are of that ilk, but there are unscrupulous individuals in ANY and ALL professions, trades, walks of life. I always want to tell the stories that I know of personally of horrendous, horrible, terrifying, things that were done to some good friends and/or family members by doctors. They are absolutely chilling. Some "ambulance chaser" lawyers made the absolutely, unquestionably, undoubtedly responsible doctors be held accountable. I think the mindless bashing of attorneys, used so manipulatively and disingenuously by certain political figures, needs to stop. Doctors and hospital personnel are not without flaw anymore than lawyers are. Who is the first person YOU would call if you needed help in a legal situation?
WebMD is running a most interesting series about racketeering and criminal rings and counterfeit drugs - where? - right here in the good old USofA - largely Florida. The sick and dying people who were provided these drugs - which, by the way, netted some 59 MILLION dollars to doctors, accomplices, and pondscum - let's see - what should they do? Turn the other cheek? Say, well, mistakes - they happen... What most of them did was call a lawyer and sue for punitive damages and for reimbursement for drug charges. Do you really think THAT is ambulance chasing?? US Big Pharma is not some sort of poor underdog here. It is huge and it is hugely profitable and it wields entirely too much power and influence and it is far, far, far from beatification status! And, by the way, if you do not KNOW that what you are ascribing to Mr. Edwards is true, you should not be writing it!

How the vaccine works:

Influenza vaccine is produced by growing the virus in eggs. The virus is killed and processed to create the vaccine, which is given by injection under the skin. The body then produces antibodies to the virus over the next two to four weeks. If the immunized person then comes into contact with the influenza virus, the antibodies attack and kill the virus before it has a chance to cause infection. The vaccine contains the 3 most likely strains to be active during the "flu season".

Why the shortage:

Almost half of the nation's flu vaccine will not be delivered this year. Chiron, a major manufacturer of flu vaccine, will not be distributing any influenza vaccine this flu season. Chiron was to make 46-48 million doses vaccine for the United States. Chiron is a British company. Recently British health officials stopped Chiron from distributing and making the vaccine when inspectors found unsanitary conditions in the labs. Some lots of the vaccine were recalled and destroyed.

Why is our vaccine made in the UK and not the US?

The major pharmaceutical companies in the US provided almost 90% of the nations flu vaccine at one time. They did this despite a very low profit margin for the product. Basically, they were doing us a favor. In the late 80's a man from North Carolina who had received the vaccine got the flu. The strain he caught was one of the strains in that years vaccine made by a US company. What did he do? He sued and he won. He was awarded almost $5 million! After that case was appealed and lost, most US pharmaceutical companies stopped making the vaccine. The liability out weighed the profit margin. Since UK and Canadian laws prohibit such frivolous law suits UK and Canadian companies began selling the vaccine in the US.

By the way...the lawyer that represented the man in the flu shot law suit was a young ambulance chaser by the name of John Edwards. IS THIS TRUE?

How right you are ED. I think it was in the 80's when a number of people died from the flu vaccine and the good old trial lawyers stepped in and as a result we only have a few manufactures left and I assume they are all in other countries. I will be closely following Merck to see just how they will survive the Vioxx lawsuits. Somehow this country has to get control of the punitive awards being won against companies that serve the public good. If Merck were to go under how is that going to help society. We pass out $10-$20 million punitive awards like there is no end to money and then we harp about health care cost. Typical liability insurance for a Doctor (not a GYN or Anathesiaologist) is over $100,000 per year with a big deductable. How much does this add to our office visit? Doctors have to practice defensive medicine meaning you will get a lot more procedures than is necessary and their are many other hidden cost that go into our tort laws and awards. John Edwards made around $35 million as his take in suing companies (think it may have been tobacco companies). I talked to a Vet who opted out of Medical School because of the insurance problems. It is now harder to get in Vet school than medical school. Can you sue a Doctor in England or Canada where they have a state run medical system? Of course in this country you cannot sue the federal government.

Oh, I despise bats! The first year we went to Prince Edward Island, we rented a house, sight unseen. Actually, we knew very little about PEI now that I think of it. We were just young and stupid.

The house was an A-frame that had been a tourist office and had been moved to the location, which was beautiful. The house was most definitely not beautiful but we figured we could rough it. The first night was fine but the next night, I awakened to something brushing my face. A bat! I was not happy.

The next day, my husband went over to a nearby house of a nice, friendly fellow with whom we had been talking the prior day. He let my husband borrow his 22 (I think that's what it was; I know nothing about guns.) Anyhow, the bat must have been sick because he was hanging in my daughter's room during the day. He got the little creature and we thought all was well. (She and my son were out of the house and knew nothing about the bat. Actually my son, who was twelve, would have loved the whole adventure!)

That night, I awakened to at least ten bats flying around the house. That was it! We packed up and headed for home but not before hearing from another neighbor that we were the third family to leave the house on account of bats. I did some negotiating with the none-too-happy owner, who happened to come from NH, and got back part of our rent since she knew there were bats in the house.

The next year, we rented a great house with no bats and continued to vacation there for about five years. A lovely area!

Yes, I know bats are good for the environment and if I were a good person, I'd have a bat house. I do my part by recycling and driving high-mileage cars. Bats may be misunderstood but they are horrible creatures!

I hope you get him, Marie!

The tarsal tunnel does need to be released if the problem with the tendons is on the inside of the ankle, between the inside ankle bone and heel so a tarsal tunnel release could be performed incident to the other procedures as a means of access -- good point. The probelm can be scar tissue that could concievably lead to a tarsal tunnel entrapment where there was none before. Neurontin would be used for a nerve tyoe pain which could involve burning or tingling. Absence of its effectiveness on you sheds further doubt on true TTS existing.

I have had very few cases of FHL tenosynovitis or FDL tenosynovitis which did not resolve conservatively so the times I have had to do surgery was infrequent but helpful. I would certainly consider a second opinion to see if you have other options.

Thanks for being here to provide valuable info.

I'm sure you know my situation based on the 100 posts i've produced over the last maonth. FHL/FDL TEnosynovitis-10 months I tried the first ray cut out for about 2 weeks with not even a slight difference. I also have been on 600mg of NEURONTIN as a test to see if nerve is involved and i truly do not notice any relief. Should i increase the dosage to even a higher level of neurontin or maybe try an NSAID instead?

Questions

1. What has been your experience in practicing podiatry with patients symptoms from with FHL/FDL Tenosynovitis? What were the main symptoms and location of pain? Was surgeery ever performed by you for this and how did it turn out for the majority of people?


2. If a tenosynovectomy of fhl tendons (debridement) is done does the tarsal tunnel have to be released to get at this area?

3. IS neurontin maninly used for BURNING TYPE NERVE PAIN?

injury to heel View Thread

A few days ago, my husband jumped into an inground concrete pool hitting his left heel on the bottom. Since then, he has not been able to walk on that foot because he has pain when applying pressure to that heel. He is also swollen below and forward of the ankle bone mostly on the inner side and some on the outer side of the foot. There is discoloration in the swollen areas. He finally went to the emergency room on day 3 and they took an x-ray. They said they didn't see anything, but perhaps there is a hairline fracture that isn't visible due to the swelling. They suggested he see an orthopedist if the pain and swelling continue after a week.

Since he's a diabetic I'm a little worried about the wait and see attitude. Someone mentioned this could also be plantar fasciitis.

Are his symptoms in line with fracture or tendon/ligament injury? What would be the difference in symptoms?
Should we wait and see if this gets better with just rest?
Is there a difference because he's diabetic?

I use quite a bit of topicals. Topical ibuprofen is mass produced and, as such, has widespread availability at a reasonable price. To get something different we need to use a compounding pharmacy. I would consider ketoprofen 10% cream. You could add to that, an existing product called lidoderm patches which is lidocaine (numbing medicine) that is in a patch that you apply to the area. It does not penetrate very deep but even the little bit that gets in helps.

Again, you have a problem that has, most likely, a biomechanical cause so try to find a practitioner who can understand this and get the right orthotic to you.

John:

Actually my first full name is "Eddie," not Edward. My son is Edward.

Thank you for localizing the pain in this post -- it is more specific so easier to give advice. The problem is in an area of proximity to the post tibial nerve so ESWT does not sound like an option. Actually, the questions you have really need to be reserved for your surgeon as much will depend on his technique and experience so it is not easy to do this for him. I can try to generalize though.

The potential complication that would bother me the most is to actually create a tarsal tunnel syndrome where none now exists. I would consider that to be one of the worst case scenarios. Formation of excessive scar tissue can be a problem and my inclination would be to get you into aggressive physical therapy fairly early to help prevent that. It is this same scar tissue that can place pressure on the nearby nerve to cause a tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Success rate is a bit hard to come up with becuase this procedure is not done in large numbers. I would definitely ask your surgeon how mamy he/she has done.

Recovery: again quite a bit of variabilty but I would have you in a U-shaped splint, partial weight bearing for 2 weeks followed up with a CAM walker (removable cast) for an addtional 2 to 3 weeks. One reason for the removable walker is to allow the therapist accees to the area.

One reason that surgery is not that common is that conservative treatment does cure most individuals. You appear very interested in the surgical treatent but the chance of treating you coonservatively and sucessfully is fairly good.

Clark 49%, Bush 40%: Stunning Zogby Blind Bio Results Turbo Charge Draft Wesley Clark Effort; Pledges Reach $800,000
(Washington, DC), August 26, 2003- DraftWesleyClark.com, the national campaign to draft former General Wesley Clark for President, has experienced an explosion in traffic and energy in the wake of its release of stunning results from a Zogby poll commissioned by the group. Using a “blind bio” approach, the poll showed General Clark defeating all current Democratic candidates, and beating President Bush 49.4% to 40.2%. (see www.DraftWesleyClark.com/poll.htm for full results)

“Clearly, these stunning poll results have unleashed an entirely new wave of enthusiasm for a Clark candidacy,” said John Hlinko, co-founder of the effort. “DraftWesleyClark.com already had the second most traffic of all the Presidential candidate sites – but yesterday we had our most traffic ever. The combination of these poll results and our performance in the ‘modem primary’ clearly shows the depth of popular support for General Clark.”

The campaign also announced that pledges to its “General Fund” – pledges of support made by supporters to a potential Clark candidacy -- had reached $800,000. It has set a goal to reach $1,000,000 by Labor Day.

DraftWesleyClark.com released the results of the poll yesterday, live on C-SPAN. They were presented as part of an overall report by political analyst and former professor, Chris Kofinis, Ph.D.

The poll was commissioned by DraftWesleyClark.com, and conducted by John Zogby, one of the nation’s most prominent and respected pollsters. In an effort to best assess the potential for a Clark candidacy, given that he is not yet a declared candidate, the poll included several “blind bio” questions. For these, subjects polled were given biographical descriptions of the candidates, rather than actual names. All questions and bios were screened and approved by John Zogby for fairness and objectivity.

Among the findings:

· “Too Late?” – 84.1% of likely Democratic primary voters say it is not too late for a new entrant into the race to win their support;
· “Military/National Security” – 73.5% of all likely voters rate military/national security experience as “very” or “somewhat” important for a presidential candidate;
· “Clark vs. Dems” -- Clark comes in first in a blind-bio match-up versus six key Democratic candidates (Dean, Kerry, Edwards, Lieberman, Gephardt, Edwards, and Graham);
· “Clark vs. Bush” -- Clark wins 49.4% to 40.2% in a blind-bio match-up versus President Bush among a national poll of likely voters;
· Even when the poll question referred solely to candidate names (no bio information), Clark jumped to 5th place (4.9%) nationally among likely Democratic primary voters – despite his low name recognition, and the fact that he has not spent a dime.

“These Zogby poll results suggest that the race for the Democratic nomination is wide open, and that likely primary voters are definitely open to another candidate entering the race,” said Dr. Kofinis. “Further, the poll results tell us that Clark has the qualities to compete against the elite of the Democratic field, and to challenge and potentially defeat President Bush in 2004.”
