LEO was alone

He did what he was supposed to do. He called for backup. If a LEO is alone when a man reaches under the seat, he can't just start searching the car.

So many people in the South refuse to admit that these are statues of traitors to the U.S.

Choice Plus works for me.

I live 2 1/2 hours from the Fayetteville NC VA hospital and its new clinic. I live 1 1/2 hours away from the Wilmington VA clinic. There is a clinic near me in Jacksonville, but all it is, is primary care, psych and blood work. I am 74 years old and need a lot of tests and specialists. So far this year, Choice Plus has found me a local eye doctor, neurologist, sleep apnea specialist and dermatologist. I did have to go to a non-VA hospital in Wilmington for a heart catherterization and the Wilmington VA for an MRI. I have not had to go to Fayetteville for over 2 years. I know that Congress is never going to increase the VA budget enough for them to hire the 40,000 health care providers it needs.

"A country is not a company" Paul Krugman.

Trump does not know anything about running a country. He probably still doesn't know that there are three branches of government and they are equal. He needs to learn that the President is not the CEO and Congress is not his board of directors. If he doesn't learn how to govern effectively soon, the Democrats will take back the Senate and maybe the House of Representatives. Then what is he going to do?

Is Ivanka willing to share?

China and North Korea

Will someone get it through Trump's head that China and North Korea have a treaty to aid one another militarily? If we attack North Korea without China's approval, say goodbye to South Korea. Any further actions on our part and say hello to WWIII. At least we won't have to worry about a draft.

LEO Holding Weapon on occupant of vehicle.

This article does not include the video of the LEO. The LEO is holding the weapon correctly with his trigger finger pointing down the barrel, not on the trigger. He held his weapon on the passenger for 9 minutes until backup came. The incident ended peacefully, it wasn't until later that the occupants of the vehicle decided to make more out of it than what happened.

I am not sure it is even a hint.

In 2005, at the age of 62, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Within 3 years, I could not control my arms or legs and none of the L-Dopa drugs helped. In 2008, a new neurologist put me on Rasagiline and within a couple of months, all I had were small tremors in my hands. I am still that way. Now a new neurologist is telling me that I do not have Parkinson's Disease.

I wrote the above to show how hard it is to diagnose Parkinson's Disease. In fact it is almost impossible with neurologists testing for every other disease they can think of.

First, a study of 62 people is meaningless. And second, do they all really have Parkinson's Disease? I do hope that it will be helpful for patients in the future.

As I said before, all I have are tremors in my hands. Unfortunately, the article is correct about brain cells dying. I dictated this to my loving wife. She fixed the grammar.

In Monterey CA

I was stationed at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey CA when the earthquake hit Alaska. The surfers were on their boards waiting for the first waves. When they saw them, I have never seen surfers paddling into shore that fast before or since. No one stayed out to catch those waves, even the 8-10 foot ones.
