    I'm waiting for CNN to ask obama this quiotesn:Given that there was no valid national reason not to approve the Keystone Pipeline, and given Prime Minister Harper of Canada described a decision on the Keystone Pipeline a no brainer from an American point of view is it not true that you deferred the decision on the Keystone to alleviate the growing conviction among a vast number of people that you have no brains at all????

    Who do you think controls my mecadil care now? Doctors? That's a laugh. It's my insurance company that says who I can see, when, how often, and how much I'll have to pay. They say what medicines I'm allowed to take, what is mecadilly necessary, what is not covered . When I was on Medicaid everything was covered. There was no question of could I have this medicine or that. Could I have this test could I see this doctor. The last thing when you're sick that you need is to hear No.

    Not the litter. The brain parasite that is present in cat feces. Toxoplasma gondii.

    I am a cat magnet. I have had cats for about 50 years. I also had been taking immune suppressant drugs for about 15 years and have never had a problem from a cat and won't ever turn one away.
