    Um...your statement was in reply to me:

    So, am I to believe your statement wasn't about Frist there, but merely informational to me about how you spread disease?

    Then you might be inadvertently passing on the flu virus should you get it; you're certainly not doing your congregation any favors my making a moral stand here Reverend.

    You got it wrong, Chris. The flu shot doesn't prevent anyone from passing the virus on. Frequent and thorough handwashing is the best way to minimize that.

    You're right. But if Bogy were to get one, then it would prevent him from developing flu symptoms, thus decreasing his communicability.

    True, but only when followed up for two weeks after an exposure with a chemoprophylaxis regimen. Other wise the virus still lives. The flu shot primarily meant for self-protection rather than for transmission prevention. Flu shots generate antibodies which coat the proteins that are the viruses and thus minimize the effects to the body. Certainly less expectorant and mucous means less opportuniites for the virus to be passed on but the virus is stll there.

    Do you ever watch "Monk" on the USA channel? He is obsessive/compulsive about many things including spreading germs. He wipes his hands after shaking hands with anybody. I am kind of that way too. I wash my hands about six times a day at work. But from a practical basis that is the best way to prevent transmission.

    Wash you hands before eating or drinking. Don't rub your eyes (or pick your nose or your ears). Wash before as well as after going to the bathroom, and of course, stay away from anyone who is sick. Those are the effective ways of preventing all sorts of infectious disease, including flu.

    He lied about screwing an intern. Bush, et al, lie about screwing the American public. Big diff.

    Actually, Clinton also witness tampered and lied under oath. He was disbarred for this.

    It's my general thought that the person charged with being the chief law enforcement officer of the country shouldn't be breaking those laws he's charged to enforce.

    I never cared that Clinton had sex with an intern--I cared that he broke the law.

    Actually, the Attorney General is the top law enforcement officer, no?

    Clinton lied under oath about a blow job. The reason his oral sexual activities was even an issue was due to the fact that they couldn't find a damn thing after a six year witch hunt to find some illegal activity by Clinton or his wife. When their original prosecutor was about to drop the case, they brought in Ken Starr, who also couldn't find anything. It wasn't they got lucky when a lovestruck mistress made the unfortunate decision to confide in her dear friend, who immediately turned rat, and ran to Starr with her "friend's" heartfelt confessions.

    This partisan lynching cost more than $30 million (or was it $60M?). Imagine how many schools could have been built for that money.

    Generally folks state such, but that is looking at the matter from a downward point of view and comparing the AG to other enforcement officials. If you are comparing him to the President then no.

    The Attorney General's office is part of the executive branch, and as such its powers are derived from the President. Yes the AG is the Cabinet member which deals with law enforcement, but his boss is still the President. He's appointed by the President, and the President's policy, not the AG's, is what ultimately decides how things are done.

    In some states like Georgia, where the Attorney General is actually elected separately from the Governor, it could possibly be argued that that office is independent and doesn't have to do what the Governor says. Georgia went to court over that very issue

    ... interesting perspective. When its a republican, corporate officer, whatever, its perjury and sexual harassment. You'd have every loyal liberal democrat and feminest calling for his scalp. Democrat president - its a witchhunt. You know Nixon never actually lied under oath - so by your analogy was the democrats attack against Nixon a witchhunt and a waste of taxpayer money too???

    No, the AG isn't.

    No, Clinton lied under oath about more than that, including witness tampering.

    :backtotop

    So does anyone else think it's okay for Kerry's campaign to criticize the VP for getting a flu shot when Bill Clinton had one? Otherwise, stick a fork in it, because this thread looks done.

    That would be one, maybe two more schools then. Wouldn't it?.

    A. I wouldn't call it sexual harrasment if it was consensual, and the woman was in love with the exec. I see it all the time at the workplace. As such, I would be angry at any prosecutor that would take it upon himself to try the man as a harraser, since the so-called victim never filed a complaint. They should be spending my tax dollars to go after real corporate criminals. like Ken Lay. That won't happen as long as his bud is in the White House. Instead we get Martha Stewart. (Boy, do I feel safer.)
    B. It was a witchhunt, right from the beginning. Nixon and his staff were caught commiting a crime. Then, an investigation was started. In Clinton's case, there was never a crime. The investigation was begun to find one. They actually never did, until the Lewinsky affair, which was none of their fuggin business.

    By that same logic, does that make the mayor of a municipality the top law enforcement officer there? After all, he/she usually appoints the police commissioner, police chief, etc. Yet, those people are generally considered to be the top law enforcement officers in their location.
    Another way to look at it. I'm the chief what-I-do in my company, even though there are numerous managers, directors, and executives above me. They may have more overall authority than I do. But, I am in charge of my area.

    I think there are some women who would disagree, and would tell you it wasn't consentual. But when the person you're accusing is the president, and his attorney general... well its a partisan witchhunt.
