    Gary Johnson is the poorest excuse of a candidate for President. As he is beyond being a total idiot, & his weak brain is fried from all the weed he has smoked over the years! "Aleppo" right? Johnson would not have looked so ignorant or clueless if he had at least said, "oh the Aleppo pine tree?" Even though we know it's a town in Syria, it's also a pine tree, full of sap like Johnson!

According to the U.S. News & World Report, Germany is the best country in the world out of a list of the top 10. Since the early 1980s, the U.S. News & World Report has been known for ranking schools, hospitals, and automobiles. However, the publication recently partnered with BAV Consulting and the Wharton School of Business to figure out which country out of nearly 200 countries worldwide...

The woman said she and Karim went out onto the S4 patio to smoke, and that while they were there, she realized...

Thompson said friends and family of the patient are still under close observation, but there is no second case. Despite the negative tests, the paramedics also will be closely monitored for symptoms until the known incubation period for the virus has passed. "Given how sick this person could have been during the time frame, we would not be shocked" if there was a second case, Thompson said. "But do we have a...

While the outbreak in West Africa has sickened more than 6,000 people and killed 3,083, it was only a matter of time before the virus hit closer to home, experts said. Dr. Edward Goodman, hospital epidemiologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, said he was not surprised that the Ebola virus came to his doorstep, given the number of cases in Africa. There is plenty of opportunity for people to fly...

    Weeks after Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said three Dallas County facilities would be used to temporarily shelter 2,000 migrant children at the border, he reversed course at a press conference held Thursday afternoon at the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in downtown Dallas. Said Jenkins, the number of children coming across the border had dropped from 300 a day in June to 150 a day in July, and there are now reports of bed vacancies at facilities along the border. The drop in numbers, said Jenkins, has allowed federal officials to reduce the backlog of children needing...

The request seemed unusual to the White House officials, Jenkins said. And it surprised Dallas County residents when he announced his plans at the Texas Democratic Convention a week later. But for Jenkins, the events were nothing new. More than most Texas Democrats, he has been an enthusiastic partner of the Obama administration for years. In a state where a politician...
