A local talk radio show suggested today that it would be entertaining to have a drinking game with your friends while watching Obama's State of the Union Address. Gather a few friends and pick words (or sounds) like....
...or phrases like, "let me be perfectly clear"
When the person with the word, sound or phrase hears the word used they have to take a shot. Pesonally, I wouldn't last if I had "I"...
So someone suffering a life threatening athsma attack shouldn't get hospital care? Does an illegal alien with a nasty cough fall in that category?....
As someone who has struggled with asthma for over 19 years, I'll comment on this one... I think he was trying to say that someone who sought preventative care would not have had a need to see an ER for a 'nebulizer' treatment. He said breathalyser and then ventilator because he's a moron, and the teleprompter went off.
I'll say this... If someone is bad enough to need a nebulizer then they won't be helped substantially by any preventive treatment. The nebulizer is something combined with other asthma treatment such as decadron shots and albuterol sulfate inhalers. If you need a nebulizer, you're bad off... I've been there.
The best thing to do would probably have been to go ahead get get a full 12 sheets to the wind before the speech, that way you'd pass out and sleep through it.
History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace, and revolution continue on forever.
Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges - Cicero
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
If the teleprompter fails and you have "umm" you'll pass out within five minutes.
