re: Who else just loves hangovers? - JT
Avoid them with Dihydromyricetin. Research if you want, but felt to be pretty safe and effective for the most part. Available on Amazon. You're welcome....

re: The Clemson fear is making everyone crazy - JT
Ask yourself what the playoff committee wants to see in the end. I feel the answer is they want to make the largest amount of money possible during the playoffs and especially the championship game. I believe they have decided that LSU vs tOSU will be the most interesting, most lucrative matchup. Th...

re: America is the only industrialized nation that does not guarantee health care for all - JT
The first thing you need to do if you want european-style "free" healthcare is to get someone else to bear all the costs for keeping you safe. Then with the money you save by not having to commit to any meaningful level of military spending, you can parcel a little bit of crappy, rationed healthcar...

re: You didn't build that - JT
This is asinine. Everyone in this country enjoys the benefits of roads and bridges and a strong military. Not just the successful. The poor get these exact same "advantages." Ironically, it [i]is[/i] actually the taxes of the successful that in large part finance these things you claim they ...

re: Cecil Collins burst on the scene 20 yrs ago tonight at Miss State - JT
Thanks for posting. I had forgotten all about the run where he lost his shoe. That one's a classic. Seriously though, I think people tend to view his brief tenure through rose colored glasses. Maybe it's because there was so much hope for him and his career was cut short before people could ge...

Seriously, that's not really normal. Especially if you are 35 or over, go get checked out by an ENT to make sure everything's alright back there (no tumors)....

re: Spinoff: The Commonwealth Fund Healthcare 2017 rankings. US basically ranked last - JT
No system is perfect but there is no other country that has better trained doctors overall and better treatment outcomes overall, especially for cancer. And yes, we do a very large percentage of all the world's meaningful medical research. And yes, we do subsidize drug prices for the rest of the w...

[quote]Are you trying to say that the best doctors in the world are found at charity hospitals?[/quote] A large percentage of charity hospitals are tied to medical schools/teaching programs. The care is actually pretty good to outstanding in many such centers. So while it is true that some ch...

re: Macron has a "deplorable" moment, calls 8m Le Pen Voters ‘Hateful Cowards’ - JT
I don't understand why someone would think this is a good strategy. Pretty much every non-jihadist in France does not like seeing little children run over by trucks. To try and tell someone they are wrong for simply expressing that they do not want that kind of thing in their country is stupid but...

re: Allergy shots...are they worth the cost and drive and wait at doctors office? - JT
I second what you are saying. I have seen someone in full-blown anaphylaxis before and the epi pen did basically nothing. Luckily EMS arrived quickly and he ended up doing okay. Anyone downplaying anaphylaxis should be challenged. A severe reaction is a very big deal. And the epipen is not an...

45 million? So including all the illegals to make the number as large as possible? Do you think everyone here is just irretrievably stupid? Do you just enjoy arguing for its own sake? What number of your 45 million were 1. actual citizens and 2. making questionable choices like buying beer and...

re: How can we realistically increase the middle & upper middle class birth rate? - JT
I would say increase the standard deduction to 15k for each child and do away with the AMT to boost the incentive for responsible working people. This by itself would likely have a positive impact. Couple that with restrictions on welfare/giveaways so that benefits will not increase after the fi...
