This is good news. I suffer from this and have had 2 fusions where they took bone out of my hip. The hip hurt more than anything afer the surgery.
What difference will it make if we have ObamaCare and don’t have guns?
Where’s the line? I need to get in it!
The important thing is that the technology has been invented. Even if the gov’t prevents its use, the technology can be used after the gov’t has been “corrected”.
don’t know yet, but I want my wife in line as well.
