Re: Nato conference

I bear solemn witness to the fact that NATO heads of state and of government meet only to go through the tedious motions of reading speeches, drafted by others, with the principal objective of not rocking the boat.

Re: Nato conference

After 9-11..... the naysayers jumped all over the POTUS for not anticipating the the terror strike. They did the same thing after the London subway bombing. They did the same thing after the Madrid bombing.

Now we have people by the hundred's, if not thousands, with passports traveling from many countries to help ISIS. Some of these people will make it back through security with the intention of killing us.

Giving up a little sailing time isn't going to kill anyone.

We can't have it both ways folks.

Re: Nato conference

So here I am sat in my clinic, trying to listen to a patient but failing miserably due to the helicopter overhead.

Obama is due to fly in today for his golf weekend and the security for him alone has drafted in 200 Police officers, many armed. I had to walk in 3 check points to get to my own office. Its the same security officers that checked me in and out yesterday..... same pat down and same ID check.

Pants!

Re: Nato conference

We can all hope that your services will not be needed for emergency medical treatment. We can also hope for the success of the meeting, lest you find yourself in a Caliphate where sailing is forbidden along with music and dancing. You might also be forced to accept many wives....

Sorry to see you go. Was comforting knowing you were in the Med and enjoying life.
Time to emigrate to Spain or Italy methinks..........

I hear all the crap about how it benefits the town or city..... but it never does. The disruption to every day business is unbelievable.

I wish they would pick an Island somewhere to do this....
Now you know how we feel here in Ohio every 4 years.... being a purple 'swing' state, candidates/presidents are always showing up here, messing up our traffic, re-routing us. (Of course, Hillary was here a few weeks ago for a book signing right up the street, and nobody noticed.... )
