    A 2013 Defense Department study conducted in Central and South America on patients with flu-like illness, did identify EV-D68 in some of the test subjects. All 3,375 test subjects were age 25 or under.

    The CDC now reports that cases of EV-D68 have been seen in 43 states as well as the District of Columbia. However, unofficially, the virus which has left many children with permanent breathing problems and limb paralysis, has also taken the life of four U.S. children, since mid-August.

    On Sept. 25, 4-year-old Eli Waller died in his sleep at his home in Hamilton, NJ.
    Obama let’s them in to infect our citizens. This is bio terrorism.. The democratic party that approve his policy should be identified as a terrorist organization

  2. Dave says:

    A yahoo article about Hillary’s campaign in Iowa earned 2000 comments from public feedback . Of the 2000 comments about 1% of them were pro Hillary..
    Who does she think she’s kidding?

  3. Dave says:

    Hal, nothing is perfect, but long time historical patterns emerge.. For instance, Louisiana at Arkansas after a big tiger win, like beating Florida state.. Louisiana goes into Arkansas as a favorite but over 70% of the time can’t cover the spread. Look it up. My uncle played hoops for San Jose state and was a college sports nut.
    I’ve won more than I lost taking his advice.

  4. Dav says:

    What the hell is bill gates up to? Google– gates, India,polio, lawsuit, paralysis .

  5. Dave says:

    I congregate with lots of young surfer tourist here n Nicaragua. It’s fun poking at their opinions and knowledge.. One question I ask them is what is the orgin of the term Hispanic. Some of the answer could make a tv comedy show. Once in a while one of them will say, the term comes from the roman,Latin description of the Iberian peninsula Hispania.
    80 years ago 90% of good high school students would know the answer, now I’m sure it’s less than 50%.
    What happen? Why are so many people so ignorant in basic general knowledge?

  6. Dave says:

    It’s not up to the employer to volunteer more. It’s up to the employee to demand more. It’s without a doubt the employee and consumer is the more powerful.
    Sadly they are easily manipulated and taken advantage of. The only answer as to how to change this plight is through education and organization.

  7. Dave says:

    It’s just a game. I hope the giants win , but I want a competitive series.. Last night we were cheering the rams in the 1st Q hoping the could pad their lead to make a better game.. All the time we would bet the ranch the 9ers would win in the end. Where did the rams get this kid? I’ve scene better quarterbacks at Cabrillo college.

  8. Dave says:

    Personally my favorite 9er is phil Dawson ( iron leg)
    This kid is amazing,, he can almost shoe em from the 50. Iots of games are decided by the kicker and the 9ers sure got that covered.

  9. Dave says:

    Ok, ok, so I need to be reminded people over 30 are not kids anymore. Phil Dawson might not be a kid,, but he sure is the 9ers ace in the hole.

  10. Dave says:

    Voter ID back in the news,,, the liberals that are opposed to the id laws in the various are irritating in the sense that they offer no alternatives. I want everyone to vote, but I want accountability . Without accountability , the election can not be trusted.

  11. Dave says:

    By Owen Jarus
    13 hours ago
    The foundations of the ancient cult complex in Israel were made of field stone (shown here).
    A massive cult complex, dating back about 3,300 years, has been discovered at the site of Tel Burna in Israel.

    We can only assume god gave Israel to some other group before he gave it to the Jews,, I’m sure Netanyahu could explain it for us

  12. Dave says:

    Enrollment on is set to begin Nov. 15, with the midterm elections taking place on Nov. 4. Critics say the timing is no coincidence, as some insurers in three states with key Senate races will raise premiums by double digits. Last year’s health exchange enrollment opened on Oct 1.

    Hal, if obamacare is great and it’s what the people want, why won’t the govt. tell us how much it cost?
    You tell us middle class voters that vote republican are voting against their own best interest.. The same can be said for voting for democrats. Why won’t you address the fact that obamacare has harmed many people? It appears that you don’t support openness, you are like republicans that support promoting propaganda and hiding reality from the people.

  13. Dave says:

    Hal , the govt. continues to hide, lie and harass anyone that try’s to find out what their hiding. Obama is equal to bush. Perhaps worse. Bush would have tried more, be he wasn’t that smart. It’s ridiculous to support the democratic controled senate that turns a blind eye to the transgressions of the executive branch. This is why I refer to them as traitors and terrorist. Strong language, yes, but accurate. They refuse to hold the govt. accountable.. The crimes need to be addressed, not scuttled in some sub committee. To begin with, the govt. should be forced to publish all foia request, and the state of progress in satisfying those request. The people have a right to know.. It’s very unsettling when the president uses the executive privilege clause to keep public document secret. What could be a greater transgression than fast and furious?
