    You obviously took good care of him. Twenty two years for a doggo is respectable by any means. Sorry for your loss.

    He died shortly after we discovered bone and lung cancer. I dreaded a discussion about euthanasia, but was so glad we did not. The funny thing is that the vet recommended it when discovering the illnesses. She gave us a quality of life evaluation. It was about this time that Fredo perked up and started prompting my wife and licking her face, as if to say Get me outa here! Well, I think taking him home turned out to be a good decision. We managed him with three medications, which seemingly put him as ease. A 4th medication was discontinued because it was likely causing GI bleeding. We could not detect any signs of significant pain or distress with the other 3 medicines. I don't know much about pain thresholds, but my wife has good instincts. Fredo died Tuesday with us by his side. I knew he was fading and woke my wife, who was dozing on the couch. He took his last breath at 1:15am. I hope this helps anyone who goes through the agony of making a decision about "letting go" of a pet. We had to sort of prompt the vet to increase the medication, since doctors often seem to be on the conservative side (I was really glad to have some old stash in the freezer to tide us over). One of the vets did not have much experience with one of the medications, but it worked out okay. I'd be glad to discuss the medications in this thread or a PM if anyone is going through this. It's not really that expensive and I think the extra care is worth it. Don't know if we will ever get another dog, but I'd like to hear others' experience with this.

    Ron Paul: Trump To Embrace Nuclear First Strike http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2018/january/16/trump-to-embrace-nuclear-first-strike/ Title is a little misleading, Ron talks about Nuclear Policies and modernizing our current arsenal. Title itself is what was put on the Ron Paul Institute site, so Im not trying to change things to create fear, or say Ron Paul is saying something he is not. I just wanted to make that clear.

    The problem is that what MLK was speaking of was NOT capitalism. True capitalism is freedom and few Americans know or understand this. The name has been stolen and is now used for what is really crony-capitalism or mercantilism. And was one of the main reasons for the Revolution.

    Planning scenarios is one thing. Moving bombers to Guam and a bunch of aircraft carriers within strike distance of NK is not "planning scenarios", its provocation to get them to attack us first, so the people know who the "enemy" is. US gets its war with NK and Iran at the same time in their typical asymetric warfare fashion.. dannno - Even if I did have any faith in Trump, its the rest of the deep state swamp that I still expect to push things so they can enact a Coup against Trump. There are NO MISTAKES in politics.

    Dear Abbey: I was waited on at an Applebees by a multi-gendered, multi-sexual today. Under the name on the ticket it read "White-male-Cis-Gendered-Shit-lord." I ordered an appetizer of Chicken Wonton Tacos and a main course of the Half Rack of Double Glazed Baby Back Ribs. The service wasn't very good, it seemed almost hostile, but I tipped 15% because that is expected these days. Should I complain to the management? Dear Shit-lord: No. That would be inappropriate. Because you are white male and cis-gendered, you have special privileges not afforded to absolutely anyone else in society. Realize that by ordering a fusion of Chinese and Latin American as an appetizer and a Black American main course you were insulting individuals from these cultures. It's called cultural appropriation. You have no right to eating these foods and were lucky enough to have been afforded the opportunity. It would have been appropriate to have tipped 99% of your bill as a way of repatriation for past injustices by living your life of a one-percenter. In the future, if you wish to avoid this situation, I recommend you take your supper at your Country Club.

    No shit. They actually allowed citizens into arctic 60 degree waters to pull passengers out? Do you know how many hours it takes for hypothermia to set in under those conditions? Some new laws are going to have to be written for the common good.

    Other side of this that is a real possibility is a Coup against Trump. Not that I have love for the guy but propping up nuclear war is a way of making people afraid of Trump. MSM tells us what to feel, so when they say 'be afraid of nuclear war', they are saying 'be afraid of Trump and support removing him from office'. Whatever happens, we lose.

    I'm not a dooms day prognosticator. China will deal with the threat in their own back yard and we will be forced to allow them to. They will probably require the South in the trade off with promises of a united Korea, but it will really just be a vassal state like the city of Hong Kong.

    That is why it has the potential to turn into a World War. If we attack North Korea for ANY reason, China attacks us. I have a strong gut feeling that the powers that be are trying to get North Korea to attack us first, so it is clear who the 'enemy' is. NK is already pissed about bombers being moved to Guam. Sanctions. Everything. However, if total destruction is planned and we are not intended to survive, they may 'push the button' anyway and wont care if we know we are the enemy because we wont be around much longer. I swear that is their intent, to get us all killed.

    I blame technology: Why a 'Loneliness Epidemic' is Upon Us http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?518354-Why-a-Loneliness-Epidemic-is-Upon-Us Loneliness is a major contributing factor to Depression. Other massive contributing factors are situational. Like students that are in $100,000 worth of debt. Some of which dont even have a degree, but they sure have to repay all that borrowed money. Others find their job situations depressing, knowing they have no opportunity to advance at a low paying job and there are very few other jobs available. Many people have no one to talk to that can genuinely help, not prescribe pills, I mean help like get a friend a better job, find ways to get rid of that student debt, not feel like an outcast for being a straight white male. But what does Big Pharma say? You need to take our drugs and make sure we are given lots of money for it and all your worries of all your problems will disappear. What they dont tell you is the worries go away because youre too stoned to be aware of them but the problems themselves always remain. SOMA

    More than likely oyarde is right and one of them had the deadly flu that is going around and that is what killed one of the passengers. Licensed first responders have to get flu shots. It almost seems as if all those that assisted should be tested and if one of them has the flu they should be charged with murder. At least manslaughter.

Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.
