Thanks, Sling Blade. We are hoping that with a new Republican Governor that our State is turning back to common sense. I only hope he will follow Wisconsin and breakup this collective barganing the Unions are strangling the tax base. As far as Obama, all I hear is one and gone.
Thank you Sling Blade. Well the battle rages as it does every where. I look forward to upcoming debate, and as I live in Tampa I will attend it. Too early to tell right now who I will vote for, if it was held today, it would be either Newt or Paul. Newt for his strong background, even if he is a career politician. And Paul because he is a ultra constitutionalist. But I know come election day I will not have the priviledge to vote for either. I am hoping the republican will be Tea Party supporter, and better than that he/she will be a strong advocate while in the white house.
Thanks for the welcome, I was checking on the news and saw how the press and far left wing politico,s were really slamming the tea party folks.First thought was "same oh,sameoh" then I knew if it really bugged them, I needed to join up!
The time has come to remember that WE are the goverment not them.
Looking forward to working with all to really have some "change".
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.
