    twice in 5 years.
    A symptom of that was swelling. We treated the symptom but we also treated the break by setting the arm and casting it each time. The break was THE PROBLEM AND THE DISEASE.
    Filling holes as a defensive end and taking on 285 offensive tackles and 235 lb fullbacks will break arms some times.
    The Tea Party movement is a joke. They treat the swelling, the symptom of the problem in taxes.
    We are over taxed but THE PROBLEM is the spending and the tea party knuckleheads have no clue.
    These clowns want no cuts to Medicare or Social Security. Those problems ARE THE DISEASE.

    Actually, the tea party peeps want the spending to stop. Hence their objection to the health care bill and stimulus plans.

    It's obvious that you didn't wear a helmet either

    they want the spending to stop as long as it does not impact them in a negative way.

    I am old enough to remember the day when Democrats demonized Reoublicans for calling for cuts in Medicare and Social Security.
    Now we have clowns claiming that we need to keep them going and spend more.
    Classic sign at tea party party: "We do not want socialism. Leave my Medicare alone"
    I did have a few concussions but even Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder can see that senior entitlement programs are going broke fast.
    But this is the day of wannabe conservatives. OK to spend and pass socialist legislation AS LONG as Gramps can still get his Viagra.
    After all, Gramps, not high school students and younger, can vote. Today, thanks to the biggest gang in America AARP, poverty wears a diaper.
    Pity that most here never crossed between the lines.

    I broke the arm of a running back, way back in HS. We ran a stunt, the LB rushed and I (a
    Defensive tackle) dropped into the flat. The play was a draw and I hit the RB from the blind site, a clean hit, and rolled = he landed on his arm and I heard a "SNAP", then a moan and a cry of "Ball" by the D. I've often wondered if his arm ever healed.
    BTW, he fumbled, we got the ball and scord two plays later.
