Are Canadian drugs unsafe?

The senators who voted against the Canadian drug bill said they acted out of concern for safety. If the drugs were being imported from the Sudan or Burma then I might agree. But Canada? Does anyone believe that a pharmacy in Vancouver is less safe than a pharmacy in Seattle? There are Walmart stores with pharmacies in Canada, just like in the U.S.. And they are selling the same drugs from the same factories. Perhaps Canada's version of the F.D.A is completely corrupt and/or incompetent, but I doubt it. I have no qualms about assuming that Canada's standards are just as good as ours.

Lindsey Graham: Anyone Celebrating Russian Interference is a 'Political Hack'


Expedia stole $350 from me.

I booked a flight from Los Angles to Fort Lauderdale using Expedia. It was one of their “bargain fares”. It was listed as a 5 hour flight for $260. By the time I finished typing my name, address, etc., the fare went up to $350. I bought it anyway. After paying, the itinerary showed a 9-1/2 hour flight with a 2 hour layover in Chicago. Customer service refused to give a refund or book me on another flight. Since I paid with a debit card instead of a credit card, I could not cancel the charge. I am warning everyone I know – “Use Expedia at your own peril”.

Yes I do believe that the sexy TV star from 50 years does look a lot different now.

I know that Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island, Jennie from I Dream of Jennie, or Tuesday Weld from Dobie Gillis do not look the same. In fact I would be totally freaked out if they did. So why do those ads keep asking me. Are the people who make the ads the only people who are not familiar with the concept of getting older?

Poll: How soon after Jan 20th will Putin invade eastern Ukraine

I say 3 months, nothing like a good old fashioned spring offensive.

Did Obama push hard enough for Merrick Garland?

It seem to me that Obama and the Democratic establishment could have waged a much stronger public campaign against GOP obstructionism. They had the moral high ground and could have really made the situation into a much bigger issue than it was. I suspect that the reason they didn't push harder is because they assumed Hillary would win. Obama and the Dems probably thought that after Hillary was elected the republicans would confirm Garland rather than risk Hillary nominating someone more liberal.

Moral of the story: Strike hard as soon as possible and don't take anything for granted.
