    doomsday -“On the Vaccine Inserts (which no parent is ever shown) it says can cause Death, Seizures, Encephalitis, AUTISM, etc.”

    Do you know why the Gov. requires the pamplet to write this? It’s because of Quacks that the Gov. listened to. As a matter of fact, the Gov. is always listening to these Quacks!
    They pushed the Gov. to water down the Pertussis Vaccine.
    From the AAP:
    “The study, “Comparative Effectiveness of Acellular Versus Whole-Cell Pertussis Vaccines in Teenagers,” in the June 2013 issue of Pediatrics (published online May 20) looked at individuals born between 1994 and 1999 who received four pertussis-containing vaccines in the first two years of life. Some individuals received DTwP, and others received DTaP. The authors found that during a 2009 and 2010 pertussis outbreak, those teenagers who received DTaP had a six times higher risk of contracting pertussis due to waning immunity compared to those who received DTwP. Among teenagers who received DTaP, receipt of the Tdap booster did not overcome the advantage in protection from pertussis associated with previously receiving DTwP vaccines. The authors conclude that that research into developing new pertussis vaccines with improved accuracy is warranted!”

    Jackk -” If a us citizen is born outside the US to US parents, he needs to go to US agencies and show documentation to get his US citizenship. There are none for Obama”

    Obama’s mother took the easy way out – when she came back from Kenya – she told a newspaper that she had a son in Hawaii.

    “What is written by a person to promote themselves and make money is not proof of anything.
    It is known that Trump lied and inflated what he owned to the Forbes so that they would put him on the richest Americans list. ”

    Now Trump exaggerated so people would do business with him.
    What purpose would Obama lie?!? He could have written – born in the US, but his black Roots are from Kenya!

    “Letter: Obama’s words may have created birther movement
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    PUBLISHED: January 28, 2017 at 8:12 pm | UPDATED: April 20, 2018 at 5:21 am
    Donald Trump has been excoriated for his interest in the Barack Obama birther movement most recently in the E-R though it coincidentally resulted in Obama releasing his long form Hawaiian birth certificate.
    I have no means to prove or disprove Obama was born in Hawaii. I do believe Obama himself planted the seeds of the “birther” movement.

    Fact: In 1990: Obama was elected the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, a student publication featuring analysis of important legal matters. The review’s student yearbook includes a biography of Obama, stating “born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.”

    Fact: In 1991: Obama hired a literary agency, Acton & Dystel, to help promote sales of his upcoming book, “Dreams of My Father.” The agency published a promotional booklet listing its 90 client/authors, including Obama. His biography states “born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.””

    No one said he wasn’t an American. It’s no big deal to become an American citizen. Nowadays you can become one without speaking the English language.
    There are laws in this country about who is eligible to become the President. Obama doesn’t qualify!

    “Corsi has a book questioning Obama’s birthplace coming out next month.”

    A lot of questions on Obama’s birth certificate were debunked.
    But this one is proof that the birth certificate he produced is a forgery:

    In the birth certificate it states:
    “Kenya, East Africa”
    At that time it was the Colony and Protectorate of Kenya, but it was also referred to as Kenya.

    Now the official name was “British East Africa Protectorate”.
    It was called East Africa Protectorate or (also known as British East Africa),
    NOT just East Africa!!!

    Jackk -“Obama is clearly not a Muslim and clearly was born in Hawaii.”

    He might be Not a muslim, but he likes them over Jews!
    This is a fact – how he treated Israel & he’s friends with the Nation of Islam.

    From The Guardian: A muslim writer says – A third of Americans thought Obama was a Muslim.
    As far as born in the US – I doubt it! This is where the left pulled the wool over American eyes!
    From PolitiFact:
    “When we contacted Trump’s organization, Michael Cohen, his political aide, referred us to Jerome R. Corsi, author of The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, which makes a case against Obama, calling him a political extremist who associates with radicals and has disturbing connections to Islam. (PolitiFact found the book was riddled with errors). In a brief telephone interview with PolitiFact, Corsi said he has spoken to Trump and that the statement about Obama’s grandmother was, in fact, based on her taped conversation with McRae. Corsi pointed us toward an article he wrote for the conservative WorldNetDaily, in which he says that he spoke to two unnamed Kenyans familiar with Sarah Obama’s dialect, and that they claimed she was clear in saying that she witnessed Obama’s birth in Kenya. Futhermore, Corsi said they told him it appeared her later efforts to recant appeared to be heavily coached by those around her. Corsi has a book questioning Obama’s birthplace coming out next month.”

    TOP -“Rescuers decided to go ahead with the hazardous operation on Sunday because of fears of rising waters.”

    They are trying to get them out through the front. So far 4-6 have been rescued.

    From USAToday:
    “If rescuers know where the boys are, can’t a drill be used to open a hole from above and hoist the boys out?
    The spot where the boys and their coach are is about a half-mile down, through mostly solid rock. The mountain terrain above the cave is heavy jungle, with few access roads.
    Forrest Wilson, the chief diving officer for the National Cave Rescue Commission and who has 50 years of cave diving experience, including several rescues, said drilling into the cave from above is not impossible. But the maps of the cave are not accurate enough to get a good fix on exactly where to drill.
    “It will take a long time to drill through a half a kilometer of cave,” Wilson said. “I don’t think there’s time”

    IMHO, They should have started to go this way! Anyways, even though they didn’t, they should have started to do it as a back up plan. Right now, the way out through the entrance is optimal, but if conditions change – they need a back-up plan!

    I went online to see the options that were suggested. I really don’t have experience with cave rescue. One the probs is too much water. But they are still going to try the entrance route.

    This is my solution: The news there claims that to drill from the top is 1km down.
    If you look at the diagram, the mountain slopes down – they should try to drill down at that point & then if possible & needed to drill over to the trapped area!

    From the CDC:
    “Secondhand Smoke Harms Children and Adults
    There is no risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure; even brief exposure can be harmful to health.1,2,6
    Since 1964, approximately 2,500,000 nonsmokers have died from health problems caused by exposure to secondhand smoke.

    Health Effects in Children
    In children, secondhand smoke causes the following:1,2,3
    Ear infections
    More frequent and severe asthma attacks
    Respiratory symptoms (for example, coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath)
    Respiratory infections (bronchitis and pneumonia)
    A greater risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

    Health Effects in Adults
    In adults who have never smoked, secondhand smoke can cause:
    Heart disease
    For nonsmokers, breathing secondhand smoke has immediate harmful effects on the heart and blood vessels.1,3
    It is estimated that secondhand smoke caused nearly 34,000 heart disease deaths each year during 2005–2009 among adult nonsmokers in the United States.1
