    Don't count on it!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!

    CT scans are NOT a good idea unless they have immediate life saving benefit.

    LOTS O' radiation! LOTS.

    Mammograms, CTs, PET Scans, etc. probably CAUSE as much cancer as they detect.

    Recent studies have shown that radiation from radiological diagnostic testing creates a very low cancer risk. Additionally, Obama is now I believe in his 50's and therefore the risk to benefit calculations are different.

    Remember that for many years the cancer risk charts were based on models created from the bombings in Japan. These models are now being shown to be wildly inaccurate.

    A soft tissue CT is more likely MRI than X-ray. Chronic GERD increases the risk of Barrett's esophagus a precancerous condition also not imaged by X-ray. O is a smoker with risk of all sorts of tracheal problems that are immediately adjacent to the esophagus. O probably has a riskier lifestyle than is admitted.

    Remember that Crazy Uncle Joe Biden is VP.

    Unfortunately US National Academy of Sciences Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation Committee BEIR still writes the law despite a century of experience with low level radiation and its health effects. JHU G. Matanowski's NSWS is good evidence of radiation hormesis. My occupational WBE is ~3 REM 0.03 Sv

    I was quite shocked to hear that the problem was GERD rather than irritation caused by hoof-in-mouth.

    It must be nice to go to a VA hospital and get care without needing to wait for a clinic appointment. (And this from someone who gets what they consider excellent care from the VA.)

    stay safe.

    LOL, well, It was "hoof-in-mouth". The difference being his insertion point was lower near the medial fold and an anulous opening--- he kept shoving till the hoof was in the back of the throat!

    Obama is a sick homosexual. He was well known in the Chicago gay bath house scene before he became a senator.

    As for his sore throat, some say he might well have AIDS given his documented gay life-style.

    Perhaps they were looking for something else?

    Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.

    There are a lot of things on which to bash Obama. You will most likely never hear or see me defending any of his political views because I have not yet seen any of his views with which I would agree. I despise him. I think he should be impeached. That being said, his sexuality (gay, straight, or somewhere in between) is irrelevant and in my opinion is a distraction from things about him that actually matter.

    Out of the frying pan and into the fire. That means Crazy "shotgun" Joe gets promoted way over his head.
