    It’s Hell to be Old

    OLD people have problems that you haven’t
    even considered yet!

    An 85-year-old man was requested by his
    Doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical

    The doctor gave the man a jar and said, ‘Take
    this jar home and bring back a semen sample

    The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared
    at the doctor’s office and gave him the jar,
    which was as clean and empty as on the
    previous day.

    The doctor asked what happened and the man
    explained, ‘Well, doc, it’s like this — first I tried
    with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried
    with my left hand, but still nothing.

    Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with
    her right hand, then with her left, still nothing.
    She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in,
    then with her teeth out, still nothing.

    We even called up Arleen, the lady next door
    and she tried too, first with both hands, then an
    armpit, and she even tried squeezin’ it between
    her knees, but still nothing.’

    The doctor was shocked!
    ‘You asked your neighbor?’

    The old man replied,
    ‘Yep, none of us could get the jar open.’

      Iowa Republican caucus members must be a very sad lot. True, they haven’t got much to choose from, but Cruz is actually the most malevolent of the lot.

    if we all took our rights seriously and voted we can do it against the US GOP

      the authors give a good explanation of how PBO neutered the gop on the Paris Climate Agreement;

      Congratulations to France for rising above fear and bigotry. If only we could do the same in this country. PBO said that he has faith in the goodness of Americans and that they would ultimately reject the fear mongering of the right wing presidential candidates. I hope his faith is well placed. We must do everything we can to ensure that it is.

      • December 13, 2015 at 9:34 pm

        This is such fantastic news. I saw a report last week that Le Pen was favored and I just couldn’t believe it given the horrific attack they went through. Thank heavens the French woke up!

        December 13, 2015 at 4:56 pm

        true that Sarcozy’s party doing well is not good at all but at least now, with the Front National defeated, the sane people can breathe a little easier and find a way to marginalize the center right too;

          That’s a very true explanation Linda, thanks for speaking it. Yes, sometimes there are too many dragons to slay at once, which is why we should CELEBRATE the ones we do slay, for a moment, savor the victory then return to working on slaying the others.

  28. December 13, 2015 at 4:58 pm

    Maybe the focus should be on the ammo …. only way you kill a person with an empty gun is to beat them to death with it … and that’s a bit more challenging ….

    So, let’um make, buy & keep all the guns they want, but the moment they make, sell, purchase or use ammo, they’re fully liable for their actions.

      My latest letter to President Obama
      12 December 2015

      Dear President Obama,

      In numerous previous letters and tweets, I’ve attempted to convey the power of liability insurance as an instrument for enforcing the “well regulated” clause in the 2nd Amendment.

      Typically, I’ve coupled guns and ammo in those communications. Obviously, the focus on anyone reading the communications is most likely the guns.

      A few moments ago, I transmitted this tweet to you:

      The reason is simple, without ammunition the only way you can kill someone with a gun is to beat them to death – a substantially larger challenge.

      So, why not focus all Executive Orders, legislative efforts & outreach on requiring any maker, seller, purchaser and/or user of ammunition to carry liability insurance.

      I have full faith in the ability of the insurance industry to create and enforce substantial requirements for any party wanting to make, sell or use ammunition and they’d see it as a new, highly lucrative market because the majority of the folk who own and use guns are responsible citizens.

      It’s long past time to begin enforcing, robustly, the ‘well regulated’ clause. Perhaps by focusing on regulating – via enforcing corporate and personal responsibility – ammunition would prove to be a tractable path to #GunSense in America.

      It should certainly be within your purview to issue an Executive Order requiring any corporation receiving Federal contracts to carry liability insurance for those of their gun or/and ammunition products sold for non-military purposes. Perhaps issuing an initial Executive Order focused on those corporations that manufacture and sell ammunition to non-military vendors would be a good first step – essentially an experiment in which outcomes could be measured to determine effectiveness prior to expanding the Order to include gun manufacturers and sellers.

      Thank you,
      Bob (Our4thEstate on Twitter)

      • December 13, 2015 at 5:38 pm

        Thank you Sir Bobfr liability is the only way that would solve this militarization of civilians, hope lawmakers follow suit just disgusting the stupidity of the electorate in this regard.

        • December 13, 2015 at 5:54 pm

          Thank you very much, okey. I agree.

          Repealing the 2nd Amendment is a non-starter without radical change in our Legislatures – Federal & States.

          Background checks is a nice idea but irrelevant, imho, in a Nation literally drowning in guns and ammunition. Anyone can get a gun and a bunch of ammo in the US – absolutely anyone and a background check will not solve the core problem of how easily illegal gun and ammo sales are conducted, already.

          So, the only path that I consider viable is to institute an insurance regime that touches every sector in the gun and ammo supply chain & consumer – specifically, liability insurance.

          Will it stop the slaughter, quickly. NO

          Will it be effective in significantly reducing the slaughter. IMO, definitely.

          Just imagine what it would be to like to be in a country with several hundred million automobile and truck drivers and ZERO liability restrictions.

          Yes WE Can

    France’s far-right National Front (FN) has failed to win a single region in the second round of elections, exit polls indicate.

    Early results suggest the party has been beaten into third place, despite leading in six of 13 regions in the first round of votes a week ago.

    The polls predict Nicolas Sarkozy’s centre-right Republicans will win most seats ahead of the ruling Socialists.

    Acknowledging defeat, FN leader Marine Le Pen pledged to keep fighting.

    Marine Le Pen stood as a candidate in the northern region of Nord-Pas-de-Calais-Picardie. Her niece Marion Marechal-Le Pen was standing in Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur, in the south.

    After both secured more than 40% of the vote in the first round, the trailing Socialist candidates in those regions pulled out so their voters could support the Republican candidate against the FN for the second round.

    One poll suggested Marine Le Pen had secured 42.5% in the second round in her region, against the centre-right’s 57.5%.


    warning: beeb’s “analyst” in that piece seems to be a rabid le pen fanbot.

    As well as taking blood pressure, checking hearts and asking all sorts of questions about your job and your lifestyle, this doctor is also taking careful note of the state of your home, assessing anything which could be affecting the health of you and your family.

    This is what happens in Cuba and although it might not go down well everywhere, it’s a pro-active approach to healthcare that yields some impressive results.

    In terms of having healthy people, the Cuban health service outperforms other low and medium income countries and in some cases, outperforms much richer ones too.

    Despite spending a fraction of what the United States spends on healthcare (the World Bank reports Cuba spends $431 per head per year compared with $8,553 in the US) Cuba has a lower infant mortality rate than the US and a similar life expectancy.

    So how do they do it, and could other countries, rich and poor, learn from the Cuban example?


    fucking commies.
