Please vote for me in tomorrow's Alaska Republican caucus as a write in vote. I lived in Alaska. I will be a strong leader. We will increase our domestic energy production. We will have a flat personal and corporate income tax. Reduced government regulation. Eliminate the Department of Education, reduce the size of government. Preserve social security and medicare. Reform medicaid. No life long entitlements for able-bodied persons. Create job programs. Eliminate 'Obama care' and make common sense health care reforms that keeps the government out of our lives. Clean up violent crime in the streets. Offer rehabilitation for first time drug offenders, don't fill the jails with them. Secure our borders. Enforce the immigration laws on the books. Create a 'fast track' visa program for regular immigrant workers. Have them pay taxes. No government benefits for illegal aliens, except emergency medical care. Rebuild NASA. The federal government should not be involved in anything the states or the private sector can do. We will not allow Iran to have nuclear weapos or allow any other nation or organization threaten our national security. It's time to wipe out the Taliban or accept their surrender. The Taliban harbored Al Qaeda. We need to stop trying to change the "hearts and minds" of a stone aged society. Defeat or surrender of the Taliban and then get out. We will defend our allies, but stay out of civil wars, unless there is a defined threat to our security. We will not apologize to other nations. We ware a free nation. We will not allow the founding fathers to roll over in the graves because of the "Hope and Change" ideas of President Obama.
Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.
California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.
Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.
Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.
“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.
Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.
Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).
Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.
Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.
Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
