#5. More Lies From the Obama Regime - anyone see a pattern?

White House Hid Huge Spike Of Families Crossing Border

"The data, which was dumped by the U.S. border patrol late Friday afternoon, shows that inflow of youths and children traveling without parents has doubled since 2013, to 57,525 in the nine months up to July 2014.

But the number of migrants who cross the border in so-called “family units” has spiked five-fold to 55,420, according to the border patrol’s data, which came out amid a storm of news about the shoot-down of a Malaysian aircraft in Ukraine, delays in failed U.S. nuke talks with Iran, and on Hamas’ continued war against Israel." http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/1...

11. U.S. TERRITORIES HIT OBAMACARE LOTTERY

The residents of Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands just won the lottery, because the royal Obama court hath decreed that they shall be free from the seething morass known as ObamaCare. http://www.breitbart.com/InstaBl...

And their doctors won't have to spend time and money figuring out how to report their patient's problems to the Royal Court

5. Y93.D: V91.07XD: Burn due to water-skis on fire, subsequent encounter​.

How does this happen? Are water skis even flammable?
4. W55.29XA: Other contact with cow, subsequent encounter.

"Other contact with cow." OTHER CONTACT WITH COW? There are codes for "bitten by cow" and "kicked by cow." What else is there?! What, precisely, is the contact with the cow that has necessitated a hospital visit?!
3. W22.02XD: V95.43XS: Spacecraft collision injuring occupant, sequela.

The existence of this type of code does not engender trust in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Shouldn't they have more control over their spacecraft than that? Or are they just careening around in the ether, pinging into one another and injuring occupants/astronauts?
2. W61.12XA: Struck by macaw, initial encounter. ​

Macaws are endangered—some are extinct in the wild—so if a patient has been struck by a macaw, chances are, it was the patient's fault. Consider calling the SPCA and/or the police. The macaw needs to be found and treated immediately.
​1. R46.1: Bizarre personal appearance.

12. US terrorist database growing at rapid rate - Thanks to those Great Liberal Civil Libertarians in the Obama Regime

The U.S. government is rapidly expanding the number of names it accepts for inclusion on its terrorist watch list, with more than 1.5 million added in the last five years, according to numbers divulged by the government in a civil lawsuit.

How in the world this man got elected for a second term still baffles me. Enough people with their hands out will vote for whomever throws them crumbs. And so our country goes......

I'm sorry - I attempted to stay on-topic while reading your enlightening link, but was led astray by the ad, "VIDEO: Women...Avoid these 5 foods to lose belly FAT". I was captivated by the alarming photo accompanying the ad, and now vow to never, for any reason, show my navel.

Barry Soetoro

Funny! It was trying to sell me a timeshare in Hawaii.

Lanivan

Right. Apparently "it" thinks you have an over-abundance of cash, and as for me, well,.....never mind.

Lanivan

I always felt you become baffled easily.....
