I love that she has to split her resources to fight Sanders.

She thought she had it made, had to only attack a GOP or conservative opponent. And, whatever Trump is atm.

Oh, they make tons of money and will continue to do so for years, but unless they can find someone to replace Steve Jobs, they're going to start (and then keep) losing market share again, until they once more become a niche brand.

The VA went through the same thing a few years ago. What is worth noting, it's essentially impossible to be infected with HIV this way, and damn close enough to it with HepC.

So why all the urgency and scare? Simple. Liability. In other words, if you ARE a clinic with poor sterilization practices, your patients who acquire these infections BY OTHER MEANS can come back and sue you and say you did it... if you don't have proof you didn't.


That's the gist of it, plain and simple.

Posted by: Blue Hen at July 02, 2015 09:28 AM (Spluw)


To this day no one really knows. Apparently, seven of his patients acquired the virus from him, and there was enough analysis of the strains of virus to make it highly likely. There was one female patient who acquired it, and she was sorta the poster person for the cause for a while. She was like 19, and was said to be a virgin. I'm sure she's long dead now.

Anyhoo, the evidence, such as it is, suggests absolutely atrocious practices on the part of this dentist, and yes, it may have been intentional. So far as I know, he remains the only medical provider to have infected a patient (rather than the other way around, which happens somewhat rarely, but can and does happen).

119 Horrific story of personal agony.

Yesterday morning, picking up the pet food bowls, I managed somehow to snag my big toe in the cuff of my pantsleg. Maybe in another sixty years I'll learn how to walk.

I know, I know, wearing pants was my first mistake.

Falling down hard is an experience I've learned gets more dangerous as the decades pass, which lesson flashed through my mind, as I fell awkwardly, hitting on one knee, and crashing into a plastic dome pet house. To my astonishment, the pet house was soft enough that I did not injure my arm and did not even tear the pantsleg nor injure my knee!

But of course I couldn't get away clean. I must've really bent my toe, because it's still swollen and purple today. Really did a number on it. At least it's not broken; I can still walk. Would hate to stub it or have somebody step on it, though.

Pants should come with warning labels. I'm going to write my congressman about this. (Oh, wait, my congressman is a sensible person. I'll write your congressman.)

Totally agree about Yosemite. I love my MacBook Air, though. We use PCs at work, and I've always found them to be great computers. Quick. No lag. But, at home, our PCs have been absolute slop. Even with the same amount of memory and hard drive space and all of that.

My Macbook Air doesn't overheat the way my other laptops have; it's much quieter, and obviously lighter. And, it is clearly superior in build.

But, yeah, I am not a huge fan of some of the Yosemite issues.

For the last few weeks I've had a touch of stomach flu or something that causes occasional diarrhea. So last Sunday I was walking the dog when I felt it coming on. We piled into the car in an attempt to make it home but it didn't seem likely. I saw a convenience store I was familiar with and I knew exactly where the bathroom is. I screeched to a halt, piled out, and ran. I got to the bathroom, open and no toilet! They were remodeling the bathroom. Desperately I asked if they had another and the ladies' room had been converted into a non-gender-specific.

Boy, opening that door and not seeing a toilet was the stuff of nightmares.

Not a fan, but the dude loves to pick public fights and has always been able to take care of himself.

Yes, he is clownish, but that is precisely why it is he and not Jeb/Rubio/(insert your favorite GOPe squish here) who is speaking out against some obvious truths, such as the open borders mess. Trump does not give a fcuk about what any of the politico/MSM class think of him.

363 What exactly is conservative about him?
Posted by: Cruzinator at July 02, 2015 11:00 AM (Q4pU/)

Trump is the embodiment of the part of the American dream that you, even if you're a cpommon schmuck, can get rich in America, in fact you can get rich, go bankrupt, and get rich again.
He never apologizes for wanting to make a profit.
He's unashamed of his America.

364 Anna Puma:

Where did you find the Macross Plus the Movie art book? I have the ones released for Robotech (one signed by Carl Macek), but none of the Macross ones.

You know that Trump inherited a huge fortune ... He didn't just happen into real estate out of the blue.

That's why I like Rand Paul somewhat. I wish Paul would do better on his short form arguments and foreign policy communication. Bush and Rubio are immigration/working man traitors who seem to be mollified. People like winners, like Sean Connery in the Rock.

367 104 Obama is more willing to cede land and power to ISIS than he is to the Washington Redskins.


Important point: winning the war against YOU is more important to Chairman Maobama than is winning against ISIS.
Many conservatives haven't quite caught up. The cold war here at home really is the more important.

368 Trump is the embodiment of the part of the American dream that you, even if you're a cpommon schmuck, can get rich in America

Trump is what Mother928, in typical laconic fashion, called a "Wheeler Dealer". Someone who got rich off connections and OPM.

369 One thing about the Confederate battle flag: if you fly it upside down, nobody can even tell.

Ban yeast!? Already happened, years ago. You can't get Red Star's formerly excellent pelletized sherry yeast, a secret to my Trappiste, because California found that baked-bread smell from the factory to be a form of air pollution. Gone.

Agreed, ISIS is important, but they aren't as big of a deal right now as Iran. The fight inside America is more important than ISIS right now, especially with rule of law dying.

371 With what is going on all across the Anglosohere with the self immolation and diminished desire to exist, it does shed a little light on why and how the Neanderthals went extinct.

We are living that in rea-time.

372 RE: Chuck Todd- "Reporters are the referees of politics."

No, they aren't. They aren't even the cheerleaders, not even the damn glee club. They are more like those psycho uber fans who show up, get blind drunk and beat some fan of the opposing team to death after the game. Of course, they travel in packs, so it takes like four or five of them to attack one guy.

RE: George Takei-
One of those dirty little not-so-secrets of the Queer Left (remember kids, Queer is an acceptible acedemic word) is that they some of the most hateful racist bigots on the planet. For that matter, they don't even like each other all that much. The whole LBGT thing is more an "enemy of my enemy" alliance than any real unified movement.

@ Anna Puma-
I always thought the Puma sisters were more about tanks than mecha, but I guess whatever works, huh? My memory may be faulty but didn't they later give up their criminal careers and join the police force? A bit like Eric Holder in having the criminals enforce the law.
