FOR DR. JAMES CARROLL to return to a maniacal society like Kuwait shows the doctor is a very brave man.

HILARY CLINTON had a stomach virus and suffered a concussion days before she was to testify in congressional hearings and before the House Foreign Affairs Committee to explain what she knew about the Benghazi affair. Very convenient. Mighty suspicious to say the least!

GOOD FOR EARL DRIGGERS in finding the “baddest dog” in town so that he can use it to protect his property. OK it’s up to you Jazzmine to take a big bite out of the bad guys’ rear ends when they show up!

GLAD THERE ARE OTHERS who disapprove of all those tacky homemade signs to advertise businesses, religions, etc. Since this robs newspapers of a way to be funded by ads, The Chronicle should hold the law to the letter of it and force a takedown of the signs, plus fines and charges on those companies.

IF YOU DADBLAMED Republicans keep labeling my Social Security payments as “entitlements” for my future, then you’d better refund every single penny to me and get us all out of the system. But you cannot just force me by law to pay into the system and then steal my money!

ARE WE SURPRISED at the Connecticut shootings? Look at the video games your children are playing. Look at the previews of upcoming movies! Our politicians preach division, hate and “revenge.” Church and God are being pushed out of our “me” society.

PRAYERS AND sympathy to the citizens of Newtown. Heaven has 20 new angels. Hell has one new stoker for the fire.

IS HILLARY’S FAINTING AND concussion that keeps her from testifying to Congress for real? It certainly is terribly coincidental.

THE TRAGEDY IN Connecticut already has sinister and treacherous politicians hinting at gun control. They claim it’s to protect Americans, but it’s obviously to disarm Americans so we will lose all our freedoms to a maniacal central government.

RAVES TO GRACE UNITED Methodist Church, North Augusta, for the “Return to Bethlehem” experience.

MAKE NO MISTAKE, when the liberals start talking about gun control, they are not talking about limiting who can purchase what. They are talking about eliminating the right to have a gun, period.

I Did See Somebody In Here Say Something...

....about "size 22 britches," but I don't think that was tied directly to the alleged blood clot.

Too cool - 4th grade - how old were we then? I was a cheerleader (they didn't have sports for us back then) - the closest I got to a football was when I played w/my three brothers - and I played the flute - JFK was killed when I was there in the 6th grade - I remember sitting on the hill crying and there were others who didn't understand. Was there an annual of us?

ksl being dehydrated is

ksl being dehydrated is common with some who have a virus. My daughter gets dehydrated when she gets a virus. I remember her being unable to walk to the bathroom without holding onto something to keep from falling. Several times she had to have fluids thru Iv. This is not the 1st time Hillary has been dehydrated when she had a virus.

harley the blood clot is noy

harley the blood clot is not in her legs. It is between her brain and her skull. I doubt any of you would appreciate being told there was nothing wrong with you when you knew there was.I know what it's like.In the late 1980s I was told by a dr that nothing was physically wrong with me, that it was all in my head.I would not let it go, and he finally learned I had gallstones. I had surgery, and never went back to that quack.

Happychimer....

Doctors aren't perfect. Remember...fifty percent of all doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class.

Who said she had a blood clot in her legs? I thought it was in her head, or so the story goes.

Something else to think about - - -

It is an axiom that bad doctors tend to end up in big cities. It's too hard for them to succeed in small towns, where everybody tends to know each others' business.

I think B4 is a little "wiser" than us. I had the candy selling enterprise in the back of the room. Bet you were a customer. Did you go to SEGO?

Happy,

I am quite aware of dehydration and viruses. Years ago my 2 year old was put on IV in the hospital BEFORE he became dehydrated. If she has that tendency, why was she allowed to get to that point? She has access to the best of medical care.

Happy, I didn't say that the best of medical care would prevent her GETTING the virus.

So I don't think that medical care prevents all ailments, especially those that may be a family predisposition.

I certainly wish Mrs. Hillary

I certainly wish Mrs. Hillary Dianne Rodham Clinton a very speedy recovery to whatever is the nature of her distress and that she is in a safe environment with private security. The nation awaits her personal testimony regarding the facts in the deaths of the four innocent Americans who begged this administration for proper security prior to their murder.

"harley read the comments from the last few days....

....Read today's #2 and #8."

I've read them all (I think) including the comments today. I have yet to see a single one who said she did not have a blood clot as you claimed earlier.
