For the sake of of context , in over 30 yrs in medicine I have never seen an article that explains how to care for diabetics during Jewish fasting holidays of during Christmas or Easter:

http://www.mdedge.com/ccjm/article/136661/diabetes/diabetes-control-during-ramadan-fasting

"A diabetic patient who develops signs or symptoms of hypoglycemia during Ramadan fasting should break the fast to avoid serious complications."

If we can ease the rules of Islam, maybe we can also relax the call to kill all infidels.

Don't repeal-replace Obamacare? 330 million people will lose their healthcare!

Real and Replace - CBO!

If you like your Bankrupt Country, you can keep your Bankrupt Country.

CBO is Wrong - As Always!

Crafty said sound bite, not bumper sticker.
Today's headline says 'House GOPís health bill would leave 23 million more uninsured, CBO says'
Political show host asks generic Republican lawmaker to respond.  We write the answer...
-------------------------------------------

CBO is wrong.  This is a false choice.  The wrongly named Affordable Care Act is falling on its own weight, losing insurers, losing choices, losing states, accelerating costs, losing people and losing money.  CBO has consistently overestimated ACA enrollment and underestimated its costs.*  You can't make a 10 year comparison to something that won't last 10 months.

The Republican bill scored by CBO is one part of a 3 part plan.  It can't be meaningfully 'scored' by itself.  If that was the whole plan, we would vote against it too.

Any people 'losing' healthcare are doing so by choice as a result of repealing the admittedly unconstitutional individual mandate.  (They put it through the Supreme Court as a tax.) In reality, the simplification of plans, removal of artificial minimums in coverage, removal of penalties, and introduction of more competition and choices will make more insurance and better healthcare available to all.

Is Japan Prepared for the 2020 Olympics? At least one bomb expert think the answer is no.

Explosive Ordinance Disposal is a complex matter involving intelligence, law enforcement, military, technology, history, and much courage and diligence.

A vital aspect of high-level EOD work is intelligence sharing and building relationships with other EOD around the world. This is important for many reasons. For instance there are 'migratory' routes for enemy bomb making techniques.

We know what when a new type of device starts to be used a place A, in a matter of months it will start being used at place B, and within a year or two at C, D, E, F....

This intelligence is vital for numerous reasons. Firstly, it helps map the organizations and their cooperation levels, which helps with targeting the enemy. Secondly, when EOD at place A start seeing a new type of device, all those EOD at B, C, D, E, F...need to know about it because it will soon show up in their operations. And there are other reasons for close cooperation.

Thailand is very good at sharing information. In fact, a US Army officer just told me that they just hosted more Thai EOD in Hawaii. Also, US military works closely with Thais and will be here again this year at Raven's Challenge (biggest EOD event in the world -- organized by a close friend). Also present will be Malaysians, Indonesians, Israelis, and much more.

But no Japanese.

Japanese are refusing to participate in crucial cross-pollination. We are on the edge of the 2020 Olympics.

Japanese EOD need to be out here on the cutting edge.

Many peoples' lives will depend on Japanese EOD in 2020. This will be more than embarrassing if people are blown up in the 2020 Olympics by IED types such as those out of Philippines or South Thailand.

This is serious business. If Japan does not get serious about it, expect this to hit the big time news.

The federal government can't do VA healthcare right, how can they do it for the whole country? Let California do single payer, and watch the collapse.


Correct, but politically inadequate.

How about:

a) Of course the number goes up--that  is what happens when purchase is not compelled by law;

b) CBO must use the numbers given it-- hence "non-partisan"  rolleyes  Here the numbers assume Obamacare levels across the time frame (10 years?) when Obamacare is insolvent now (e.g. rates have doubled since inception in 2013-- project that forward etc etc) 

Also, note that apparently because the CBO says the House bill reduces the deficit, it remains eligible for reconciliation (i.e. majority, not 60 votes)

Pretty horrific. It is crucial that parents talk with their children early and often about the very real and very serious dangers related to technology that we commonly take for granted. Juveniles that stupidly take a picture of themselves have ended up with felony level adult convictions and lifetime offender registration requirements. The internet is forever, and sometime the legal consequences of a moment of adolescent stupidity are as well.

Manchester Suicide Bomber Named: Gary "The Garester" Eddington
Nah just fuckin wit ya, it's Salman Abedi, and the keening cries warning against #Backlash! have begun.

Question: Why is there never a warning about Backlash before the suspect is named?

Answer: Because if the suspect turns out to be one of the few the media can claim are "right wing" (Nazis, etc.), then the media does not warn against backlash, but actively crusades in favor of it.

If this guy turned out to be anything that could be plausibly mischaracterized as right wing -- tweeted in favor of Brexit, etc. -- the media would be blaming this right now on Donald Trump and his supporters, and demanding they take accountability for their hatred.

But, it's not, so the media set down its "Backlash is Good and Necessary" script and picked up its "Backlash is Bad" script.


Born in Manchester in 1994, the second youngest of four children his parents were Libyan refugees who came to the UK to escape the Gaddafi regime.
His parents were both born in Libya but appear to have emigrated to London before moving to the Fallowfield area of south Manchester where they have lived for at least ten years.

Here's a very common claim:

Salman Abedi was born and raised in this country do NOT blame this tragedy on the refugee status of his parents.

Yes, but a large, large number of terrorists are in fact second-generation sons of immigrant families. Think of the Tsarnaevs, and many, many others.

That's a fact -- and it is also a fact that had the first generation not been admitted, the second generation could not have murdered the population that welcomed them.

One can see how this happens. Young men (in particular) have outsized egos and enjoy heroic narratives they can pretend to be a part of. They also tend to be easy targets for Identity Politics/Racist messaging and conspiracy theories, puffing themselves up as heroes fighting against the Jews/Blacks/Whites/Muslims/Christians/Whoever.

We see this pattern again and again as the second generation of immigrant families, searching for some kind of identity, purpose, and "heroic" role for themselves, picks up the mantle of intense and dangerous hyper-ethnocism their parents may have been fleeing in the first place.

A CNN analyst has already claimed it's actually a right-wing "false flag" attack:

CNN is always screaming about the craziness of conservative conspiracy theories -- but they are warmly receptive to conspiracy theories emanating from their fellow hardcore progressive agitators.

Meanwhile, the same prog toads that shriek that we must not "normalize" Trump are now counseling that we must normalize Islamic terror:



This only goes to prove that we must Impeach Trump Immediately, obviously -- as I'm told was the talking point on CNN and MSNBC last night, as both networks chose to ignore the Manchester attack and only occasionally run a chyron about it. (A commenter tells me my source is wrong and that CNN did cover it, some. Obviously, though, I was being a bit hyperbolic in my original claim.)

I'll Ride With You Update: The "invent false stories to change the narrative" script has been deployed already.
