That sounds like the real estate version of selling him a bomb casing full of pinball machine parts.

Was my first thought.

Libya, Iraq, Iran, Ukraine. Probably others, but I don't care to look it up.

You give up nukes you lose all power. Maybe today, maybe the next president. Maybe the one after. Deals are meaningless.

Yeah yesterday Rubio was essentially calling for the US to invade Venezuela to defend Colombia.

At least we save on oil to move troops as far?

Really too bad. He had the much rarer type of pancreatic cancer that actually is curable a significant amount of the time, too.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

100% Trump will call empty promises a win and get nothing substantial from China.

Meanwhile, Jordan is having to sue "Qiaodan" (and not having much success) to get that brand off the streets. Qiaodan supposedly has ~500 million in sales.

Similar suits brought by Chinese stars like Yao Ming have been much more successful. Hard to think there isn't political motivation here.

There are so many things though on even just a day to day basis that extend the lives of super wealthy people. Just the fact that when you get sick and youíre super-wealthy, the doctor comes to you, instead of having to go sit in a waiting room and get cross-contaminated with everyone elses illnesses probably prevents a lot of complications in elderly billionaires.

Perfect example. I literally just came back from a walk-in because Iíve had an Upper Respiratory Infection for more than a week with fever and a terrible cough, and I went to make sure I donít have pneumonia. Now to their credit, they did give me a chest x-ray and I was negative for pneumonia, but when that was done, they sent me off with a prescription for antibiotics which I know does jack-all for the almost certainly viral infection that I have. I have to imagine if I was a billionaire who has a doctor and labs on payroll and i donít have to worry about insurance approving it, they would actually do testing and determine what exactly I have, whether itís bacterial or viral, and whether antibiotics even make sense.

And then if you were rich they would give you some propofol for a good nightís sleep...

Iím convinced folks who are comfortable financially, but not rich get the best care because they donít convince doctors to do stupid things or bend to patients will in ways that arenít in patients best interest.

I don’t think there is a catch all test for viral vs bacteria. If you have been sick for a week already they usually give antibiotics at the point in my experience.

Strange.... Me & my dad have had this same infection for 3 weeks. I thought I got mine for falling asleep with the heating on. But nope 3 weeks it lasted. Same with me dad's.

I actually am pretty sure there is a way to test definitely for a sinus infection through use of a cat scan (although I always get those confused with MRIís so donít quote me). And yes, I agree that i got standard care since Iíve been sick for so long, and Iím absolutely taking the antibiotics just in case, but if I was a billionaire, i bet I would have a more definitive diagnosis and treatment.

Thereís a lot of viral stuff going around right now, everyone up around me is sick. My 3 year old daughter got sick as well, they actually did test her (nose mucus sample) for flu and RSV but both were negative. My 3 year old handled it much better and was fine in 3 days, 9 days later Iím still sick. Sucks to get old.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

I'm not a doctor, but I'd be surprised if they can distinguish a bacterial infection from a virus based on MRI/cat scan alone. I think they need to take a sample for that.

They would have given you a sinus swab and taken a sputum sample, but only because you are a rich moron who is insisting on stupid tests. They would have given you the antibiotics before your test results came back. The odds of an unchecked bacterial infection rise dramatically as time goes by. Especially considering your kid had a negative nasal swab (assuming this was before you went to the doc and they knew about it). Doing tests that arenít going to change your care plan is what is moronic.
