If you are factoring in offense and defense , I would argue for Lamont Roland over Darrell Mitchell.
Lamont was a true defensive stopper, and was solid on offense.

I ask you again, what is the basis for this statement?
I realize your opinion is that no one should be treated for any complicated medical condition at Olol.
I have personally treated hundreds of complex cancer patients at Olol, and would put their outcomes against anywhere.

Having worked at almost all the major hospitals in br as a resident, I would tell u this:

If you are really sick or have a unique or speciali...
| Political Talk|| Constitutional congress as a means towards a balanced budget amendment... - tomcatrav on 3/6/13 at 9:11 pm|
You would need 2/3 of the states to call the meeting, and 3/4 to pass anything. Looking at the 2012 election map, it seems unlikely, but possible.
Anybody think this would have a realistic chance of passing an amendment requiring a balanced budget with a surplus to go towards the debt?

Just a few things that might slow your roll p-man:
1. It takes an average of 8-10 yrs to bring a new medicine to market (b/c of trials and waiting on safety and outcomes data). Even if the technology is there (which it won't be) it will take a lot more than 30 yrs for the system to change to that...

Everything you said is data manipulation/transmission etc.
Nothing you said is data acquisition on the scale that would be required of "biosensing technology" in order for it to be useful.
But hey, maybe next week I can ride a hover board to work at the rate you thing technology is growing.
| Political Talk|| re: I'm rich and I hoard wealth - tomcatrav on 2/24/13 at 8:16 pm|
I think you are significantly overestimating the reliability and underestimating the cost of your "bio sensing technology". Currently even simple computerized things like intra-operative nerve monitoring generally require fairly extensive human expertise to provide useful data. (And adds significant...

I feel like its very relevant.
A computer/diagnostic machine would only be as effective as the information that goes into it, and most of the diagnosis is generally made based on history.
A significant number of patients would likely give the computer inaccurate or incomplete information. T...

The tea party tends to have a very strong Christian base has fairly strong views on social issues. (which I agree with, by the way, but those issues lose elections these days)

State has always been strong on the O-line and D-line. It seems to me like Mullen has finally assembled a talented group of skill players, including a pretty good quarterback.
