"Good Morning"

Indeed.

Inimical - a word inimical to imitation, except for inimicable, which makes light of it.

Now that would be an electoral strategy right out of an episode of How I Met Your Mother. "It works two out of three times."

The present day administration is as inimical to the American Dream as the society envisioned by Ayn Rand in “Atlas Shrugged”.

obama and his minions are inimical to liberty and prosperity in America, and even to life itself with obamacare.

Sadly, obama and Hillary are NOT inimical to islam, our civilizational enemy!!!!

that the Fed gov’t is outsourcing jobs to contractors who are bringing in people on work visas.

With 15% real unemployment? Unreal. I long for the good old days when at least our socilaists were at least a little patriotic, now they are globalist.

InimiCal: Chemical or drug used by The One to cause economic depression and suppress the American Dream.

Speaking of paralegals, does your associate know that they're expected to do triage now under Obamacare?

I’m sure the contractors are doing it legally with those HB1 visas, etc.

That’s really not the point, with so many Americans out of work those contractors should not be using HB1’s.

I mean it’s really only one step down from using foreign troops.

Thank you very much. It’s not fun. We are still struggling with arrangements for my 99 year old mom who broke her leg in May. She’s in rehab, and they have wanted to know since the day she entered rehab where she is going after she uses up her 100 days. We are trying to make arrangements, and it’s tough being the only child. Mom is described as “fragile, but feisty” by the nurse advocate that we hired to oversee her treatment.

She is angry that she is in this situation, so she is not co-operating always. Plus, I don’t think she is being treated properly all the time (not medically — just personally). She doesn’t hear well, and that complicates everything. She has a great imagination, so she fills in what she doesn’t hear!

This is our 2nd trip, and we have a thousand details to still work out. We’ll be making the rounds of nursing homes this time to try to find a place for her to go in August.

The good news is that she looked much better and much stronger this trip than she did 2 weeks ago.

Peraonally, I am biased to the pic with the towel hanging on his package. Color me not surprised. I used to laugh milk through my nose at the mere mention of Elliot Spitzer, yet he has no problem showing his beady face on TV. How long before Spitzer is running again, too? As per the article, Weiner is cocky.....

WOW! what longevity, that she has done so well at that age recuperating from a break! Good luck on your search. Dealing with aging parents is very stressful. Both of mine are deceased, but my fatherinlaw is 89. He went through an extremely bad patch a year or so ago, but snapped out of it and has been absolutely fine. I think it was depression but we were concerned it was beginning of alzheimers. He managed to turn himself around and that is sans any drugs whatsoever. He is 89, is perfectly fit physically and the only med he takes is a baby aspirin once a day.
