    It's insane out here as well, heck 4hrs would be quick out here it's gotten way out of hand.
    I've had to wait as long as 14 hours for an emergency hernia surgery. That was with Kaiser hospital, I dropped our Kaiser coverage as soon as I was all healed up from the surgery.

    One thing I'll say about here in Missouri you get in fast, very few illegals. When I had my heart attack I was in an emergency operating room getting operated on in less than 15 minutes from the time I walked in the door. It took them about 2 minutes from the time I came in to get me stabilized and off to the operating room. I wouldn't trade that for much of anything especially having to deal with Illegals.

    Not yet. Depends on if the next election goes to the democrats. Then it will be a solid fuel rocket to hell.

    I'm Not Even Sure Anymore
    Understand - I went on a Church Mission Trip to Haiti about 6 months after my military retirement. The Mission Organization made everyone go through a shot clinic to ensure we were protected. I just walked in the door with my shot record and handed it to them. They all looked it over and said something to the effect - "you're good to go, you've been vaccinated for stuff that no one even vaccinates for anymore. We're not even sure if you could even catch a disease if you tried."

    But back to the original topic. Anyone immigrating here needs a basic battery of shots, anyone traveling to other countries needs a basic battery of shots - but slipping in under the wire, "well come on in Typhoid Mary"! We will process you then turn you loose in our country to spread disease until your hearing date that you probably won't show up for.

    If Biden, Buttigieg, Beto, Harris, or any number of the idiots running win against Trump, it will be for a similar reason that Trump won... They will win cause they are not Trump, just as Trump won cause he was not Clinton.

    Sander's has the "not Trump" aspect going for him, plus the growing popularity of socialism (which scares the crap out of me). I think that Sander's would gain more votes than he loses due to his socialistic proclivity...

    Klobuchar seems to me one of the few moderate Dems running, and were she to make it to the primaries, I think she would have an extremely good chance of beating Trump... She is a moderate non-progressive, with a seemingly reasonable level head... Still pro-choice but against late-term abortion, not for socialism, socialized medicine or free college education... She has stood her ground on the progressive policies that other candidates have crumbled on... (Not sure where she stands on immigration?).

    Stating a candidate won because they weren’t the other candidate can be said of every election ever held for President except the first one.

    Adams won because he wasn’t Jefferson.

    Reagan won because he wasn’t Carter..

    As for Klobuchar. She’s a good little DFLer. Ugly Amy will stand where she is told to stand. She’s Minnesota Nice. Having grown up in the People’s Republic of Minnesotan “Minnesota Nice” means your bipolar passive aggressive.

    I think Reagan won his second term cause he was Reagan... Obama (love him or hate him) won cause he was Obama.

    I doubt the Dems will get any steam going for someone that is not uber progressive... A moderate such as Klobuchar could probably pull off a win if she kept her head...

    A sterilization shot would eliminate the problem long term and save a helluva lot of taxpayer money.
