The Foundational Argument for Going Green a Lie

But we already knew that.

Hey folks,

Happy Tuesday to ya. Hope you all have a GREAT Holiday. Me? Coming off a Four day stint with Family and Friends. Trying to get back into the swing of things. Since it is TUESDAY, time to check in at the Energy Front.

Now Tuesdays are the day we set aside to talk about anything Energy. By now, you are well aware of the FACTS. In just a few years, we could create Hundreds of Thousands of Jobs, Reduce the Cost of Energy practically over night, and INCREASE Revenue coming into our Government. At all levels. We could also REDUCE Spending but cutting out all the useless, and out right SCAM Spending, that this Administration does so well.

So how does Obama and Crew attempt to justify their actions? How do they attempt to justify stalling Drilling, slowing permits, attacking the Coal Industry, postponing the Keystone Pipeline {That WILL bring about a MAJOR change in supplying us with 92 Percent of all of our Liquid Fuel needs} and now attacking other areas of Energy Production? The Green Dream. We must save the Planet.

Global Warming was brought to the Mainstream by Father Gore. He turned it into a Religion. The Church of Global Warming. Just like other Man-Made Religions and Traditions out there, there are still those that follow it and will do so BLINDLY, in the face of all the FACTS and TRUTH to the contrary. This is how the Liberals gain Power, Control, and of course, all that Money.

However, over the years, people like ME have been telling you that Global Warming is a SCAM. It is not real. We have backed up what we have told you with Facts, Commonsense, and Logic. We have pointed out to you that there are things in Nature called Cycles. We rain. We are Dry. We Storm. We are quiet. We Heat. We Cool. This is all natural. We pointed out that there are more and more Scientists coming out to say it is a SCAM. Even Al Gore's OWN Scientists have come out and said he lied. And continues to do so. We talked about all those Emails that told you OUTRIGHT that they were all lying and attempting to further an agenda.

But they continue. Switching the name from Global Warming to "Climate Change." You see, we are NOT warming anymore. Haven't been since like 98. We are in a cooling cycle. But they are still insisting that you buy into the belief that we are killing the Planet. But the problem for the Chicken Little Crowd is simple. The Sky is not falling. There are now more people that do not believe in their message than there are that do. More Scientists out there are telling the TRUTH. The Movement has all but died. Now this? The VERY Foundation of the argument is found to be, uh, wrong. According to Investors Business Daily - Global Warming Models Called Into Question By New Study Posted 11/25/2011 06:03 PM ET

Climate: The Lefts proposed solutions for the world's ills are based on the idea that carbon dioxide is a climate-heating poison that must be scrubbed from the global economy at all cost. Yet another study shows this is foolish.

The study in the journal Science found that global temperatures appear to be far less sensitive to the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere than originally estimated.

This sounds prosaic, but it's a bombshell — another in a long line of revelations showing the scientific fraud at the heart of the anti-global warming movement.

The study's findings are simple and devastating. "This implies that the effect of CO2 on climate is less than previously thought," said Oregon State University's Andreas Schmittner, the study's main author.

Even with a doubling of CO2 from levels that existed before the Industrial Revolution, the study found a likely increase in Earth's temperature only from about 3.1 degrees Fahrenheit to 4.7 degrees Fahrenheit.

That compares with the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 2007 report, which predicted an increase of 3.6 degrees to 8.6 degrees.

Coupled with the fact the average global temperature hasn't increased at all over the past decade — even though under all of the global warming models now in use, this is impossible — warmist ideology is crumbling. There is no climate armageddon on the horizon.
Folks, when the Obama EPA came out and said that CO2 is a Pollutant, I and MANY others told you this is Patently Absurd. It is a NATURAL byproduct of LIFE. If we had NO CO2, there would be NO Trees, Planets, and other Oxygen producing life forms on this Planet. No Oxygen, no LIFE. CO2 is NOT a Pollutant. It is NECESSARY. It is NATURAL. IT is NOT killing the Planet, it is HELPING to keep the Planet Alive. It is a necessary part of the equation of Life. There was no REAL Science, no facts, no nothing, in the Process of the EPA declaring CO2 a Pollutant. It was PURELY Political. But of course?

But don't expect global warm-mongers to admit this. As we've discovered from a new trove of emails sent by leading European climate-change scientists, there has been a vast, global green conspiracy to silence scientific opposition to the idea — even to the point of falsifying data and ruining others' careers.

The left's entire prescription for solving the world's ills — ranging from population control to strict regulation of businesses to shrinking CO2 output — are premised on the notion that carbon-dioxide is a poison.

Happily, the left's pernicious, economy-destroying and false global warming ideology is collapsing under a growing body of evidence that the CO2 scare is a fraud.

Who says we have nothing to be thankful for?
Yes folks, this is why in this area, and all areas of Life itself, it is of the utmost importance, to always have the ability to Think, Apply Logic, and Understand Truth. The importance of the Knowledge of Truth is simple to understand. If you KNOW the TRUTH, you can never fall for a Lie. It really is, just that simple.

Happy Thanksgiving to All

We have MUCH to be Thankful for.



Hey folks,

I have a lot to be thankful for.

I am thankful for my Family. My Mother for giving birth to me. My Wife who takes good care of me. My Sons Joshua and Elijah. Of whom I again can see the world through the eyes of a Child. A World of Magic and Miracles. Innocent and pure.

I am thankful for my Job, in a time so many are struggling to find one.

I am thankful for my friends and those that I care about, who care about me. Those that I know better than they know themselves, and those that know ME, and have no problem laughing when I laugh, crying when I cry, leaning on me when they need, and walking side by side with me through ANYTHING life brings. The whole time, being completely Honest with me, on all things.

I am thankful for being born an American. Born into the greatest country on Earth. Thankful for our Freedoms.

The Freedom to be whatever I chose to be. In a land where our Poor, have homes, cars, cell phones. On Average two TVs, Computers, and a means to an education. In a World who's poor live in huts, with no toilets, running water, or electric.

The Freedom to speak out against our Leader's Policies, without fear of punishment and death.

The Freedom to DREAM, and the ABILITY to achieve that dream.

The Freedom to believe. To practice whatever Faith I believe in, anytime and anywhere I chose.

I am thankful for the Men and Women, who stand up, leave their Families, and put their dreams on hold, to take an Oath, to defend those Freedoms. Those that understand that Freedom is NEVER given freely. It is ALWAYS taken and defended by force. Those that are willing to pay the ultimate price, including the laying down of their own lives, for that freedom.

But most importantly, I am thankful to God, for Life itself. For without that, we would have NOTHING.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you have a happy and healthy Holiday. Just remember, even those with the least, have MUCH to be thankful for.

The True Story of Thanksgiving

According to Rush Limbaugh.

Hey folks,

I love this. You may not know this. This is Rush Limbaugh - Book "See, I Told You So." Chapter 6, Dead White Guys, or What the History Books Never Told You: The True Story of Thanksgiving

"After eleven years, about forty of them agreed to make a perilous journey to the New World, where they would certainly face hardships, but could live and worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences. On August 1, 1620, the Mayflower set sail. It carried a total of 102 passengers, including forty Pilgrims led by William Bradford. On the journey, Bradford set up an agreement, a contract, that established just and equal laws for all members of the new community, irrespective of their religious beliefs. Where did the revolutionary ideas expressed in the Mayflower Compact come from? From the Bible. The Pilgrims were a people completely steeped in the lessons of the Old and New Testaments. They looked to the ancient Israelites for their example.

"And, because of the biblical precedents set forth in Scripture, they never doubted that their experiment would work. But this was no pleasure cruise, friends. The journey to the New World was a long and arduous one. And when the Pilgrims landed in New England in November, they found, according to Bradford's detailed journal, a cold, barren, desolate wilderness. There were no friends to greet them, he wrote. There were no houses to shelter them. There were no inns where they could refresh themselves. And the sacrifice they had made for freedom was just beginning. During the first winter, half the Pilgrims – including Bradford's own wife – died of either starvation, sickness or exposure. When spring finally came, Indians taught the settlers how to plant corn, fish for cod and skin beavers for coats.

"Life improved for the Pilgrims, but they did not yet prosper! This is important to understand because this is where modern American history lessons often end. Thanksgiving is actually explained in some textbooks as a holiday for which the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians for saving their lives, rather than as a devout expression of gratitude grounded in the tradition of both the Old and New Testaments. Here is the part that has been omitted: The original contract the Pilgrims had entered into with their merchant-sponsors in London called for everything they produced to go into a common store, and each member of the community was entitled to one common share. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belonged to the community as well. They were going to distribute it equally. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belonged to the community as well.

"Nobody owned anything. They just had a share in it. It was a commune, folks. It was the forerunner to the communes we saw in the '60s and '70s out in California – and it was complete with organic vegetables, by the way." There's no question they were organic vegetables. "Bradford, who had become the new governor of the colony, recognized that this form of collectivism was as costly and destructive to the Pilgrims as that first harsh winter, which had taken so many lives. He decided to take bold action. Bradford assigned a plot of land to each family to work and manage, thus turning loose the power of the marketplace. That's right. Long before Karl Marx was even born, the Pilgrims had discovered and experimented with what could only be described as socialism. And what happened? It didn't work!" They nearly starved!

"It never has worked! What Bradford and his community found was that the most creative and industrious people had no incentive to work any harder than anyone else, unless they could utilize the power of personal motivation! But while most of the rest of the world has been experimenting with socialism for well over a hundred years – trying to refine it, perfect it, and re-invent it – the Pilgrims decided early on to scrap it permanently. What Bradford wrote about this social experiment should be in every schoolchild's history lesson. If it were, we might prevent much needless suffering in the future," such as that we're enduring now. "'The experience that we had in this common course and condition...'" this is Bradford. "'The experience that we had in this common course and condition tried sundry years...that by taking away property, and bringing community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing – as if they were wiser than God,' Bradford wrote.

"'For this community [so far as it was] was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without any recompense,'" without being paid for it, "'that was thought injustice.' Why should you work for other people when you can't work for yourself?" That's what he was saying. " The Pilgrims found that people could not be expected to do their best work without incentive. So what did Bradford's community try next? They unharnessed the power of good old free enterprise by invoking the undergirding capitalistic principle of private property.

"Every family was assigned its own plot of land to work and permitted to market its own crops and products. And what was the result? 'This had very good success,' wrote Bradford, 'for it made all hands industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been.' ... Is it possible that supply-side economics could have existed before the 1980s? Yes. Read the story of Joseph and Pharaoh in Genesis 41. Following Joseph's suggestion (Gen 41:34), Pharaoh reduced the tax on Egyptians to 20% during the 'seven years of plenty' and the 'Earth brought forth in heaps.' (Gen. 41:47) In no time, the Pilgrims found they had more food than they could eat themselves.

"Now, this is where it gets really good, folks, if you're laboring under the misconception that I was, as I was taught in school. So they set up trading posts and exchanged goods with the Indians. The profits allowed them to pay off their debts to the merchants in London. And the success and prosperity of the Plymouth settlement attracted more Europeans and began what came to be known as the 'Great Puritan Migration.' But this story stops when the Indians taught the newly arrived suffering-in-socialism Pilgrims how to plant corn and fish for cod. That's where the original Thanksgiving story stops, and the story basically doesn't even begin there. The real story of Thanksgiving is William Bradford giving thanks to God for the guidance and the inspiration to set up a thriving colony. The bounty was shared with the Indians." They did sit down" and they did have free-range turkey and organic vegetables, "but it was not the Indians who saved the day. It was capitalism and Scripture which saved the day," as acknowledged by George Washington in his first Thanksgiving Proclamation in 1789.
Have a Great Day folks, Thanksgiving is Tomorrow. I can't wait.

Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

I give thanks Daily.

Hey folks,

In just two days, Day after tomorrow, I will be enjoying my Favorite Holiday. Every time I say this, someone usually asks me, "What about Christmas?" Well, Christmas, or at least the day we have all set aside to recognize the Birth Of our Lord Jesus, is one of the most important days in History. It is a HOLY day. Some would argue which is more important, the Birth of Jesus, or the Celebration of His Resurrection, AKA Easter? Valid arguments both. But NEITHER day is a Holiday.

We have turned BOTH into Holidays, and we have given them the same status as the Fourth of July, Valentine's Day, or even MLK Day. Most see it as an extended Weekend or a Free Day Off. Some have gotten so into the Marketing of Christmas, Trees, Lights, Gift Giving, that they do not even remember the Reason for the Season.

So looking at Christmas as a Holiday, think about it. Right after you take your kids Trick or Treating, go into Wal-Mart, the Mall, whatever, "Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells" can be heard over head. Sales start popping up all over the place.

Right after Thanksgiving? Black Friday. Insanity occurs. Then after Millions of Dollars spent, madness ensuing, TV Specials Airing, Christmas Morning comes. With in 10 minutes? It's all over. Done. Garbage to Pick up. New Toys in boxes stacked in a corner. One or two toys will EVER be played with. Other Gifts are set to be returned. On to next year.

No folks, Thanksgiving IS my Favorite Holiday. Friends, Family, Food. All that Food. I can smell it now. Every Thanksgiving, thoughts of Childhood fill my mind. Grandma cooking all day. The BIG Table that was set with more food than you could possibly eat. My Grandmother making a few Plates for some in town that could not make it. Me and my friend Billy going out to deliver them. Best times of my Life.

So this week I'm concentrating on THIS. Getting ready for my Favorite Holiday. Tomorrow I will Post something Special and of course, Thanksgiving itself, I will Post what I'm Thankful for and wish you all a VERY Happy Thanksgiving.

But Fret Not, we WILL return to a "Normal Schedule" Next Week. Take care my friends. Be Safe, Be Well, and Be Happy. No matter what you have going on in your Life right now, you DO have a lot to be thankful for. Trust me.

Water Does NOT Prevent Dehydration, According to Libs

So why all the Concern over Michelle Obama Telling us what we can and can't eat? THIS!

Hey folks,

Happy Sunday to you. Welcome to the Big Sunday Edition of the OPNTalk Blog. I AM your Provocateur of Thought himself Peter Carlock, and we are as Live and Live can be. It's 6:40 am right now. If you are getting up right now with me, Grab a Coffee, Juice, or whatever gets you going, and lets spend some time together. If you want to be a part of the OPNTalk Blog, OR, just say Hi, the Email, as always, is opntalk@gmail.com. Really glad you stopped by today.

So people often wonder, why are people like me so against people like Michelle Obama, telling us what we can and can't eat. Why are we also against a few Idiots, with a LOGO and a Fax Machine, dictating what is good and what is bad for us?

A- Freedom.

B- Most of the time they have no clue what they are talking about, that's why they change it so often.

C- A lot of times, it is crystal clear, that there is no other reason than an attempt to further an Agenda.

D- Pretty much? Well, they're Idiots.

Oh, more on that in a second. Coming right up Today?

Anywhere In The World In One Hour. New Plane? No. Bomb

OK back to the Food Police. You want to see a REAL Clear example of why these people are clearly Idiots? Here you go. According to The UK Telegraph - EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration By Victoria Ward and Nick Collins 6:20AM GMT 18 Nov 2011

EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.

Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.
{Laughing} A TWO Year Jail Sentence if they tell the TRUTH? Water does not Hydrate. Really?

Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: “This is stupidity writ large.

“The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and trying to deny us the right to say what is patently true.

“If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”
Folks, that is all you need to know. This is why we reject these Morons out of hand. Who cares why they decided this stupidity. They DID. So just eat what you want. Everything in Moderation. Don't forget the ELMM Diet. Eat Less, Move More. It'll all be OK folks.

Going to fill my cup with Coffee, made, like me, with Water. {Smile} Be right back.

Anywhere In The World In One Hour. New Plane? No. Bomb

Is this a good thing? Or is it not?

Hey folks,

I know, I know, some of you look at what I have been saying about Iran over the years and think I'm a Hawk. I love War. I love force. I think that the only answer to a threat against us is Force. This is really not true. I, like my more Liberal Friends HATE War. I HATE the fact that we need to use force. I join the Beatles in saying Imagine a World with no War. With no Hate. With no Guns. But I do live in Reality.

There are still places on this Planet where they have no Idea whatsoever what TV is. What A Car is. Hell, what Cloths are. But they do understand that the people in the next Village over have something they want, so they attempt to take it by force using Sticks and Rocks. The People in the Next Village over understand that if they wish to continue to possess what they have, and if they want to continue to live, they will have to defend it with force. So they DO.

People all through out History have waged War. Just because YOU may not want to engage in War, doesn't mean that they will just play Nice. There are people in this World that want NOTHING from us, but our Death. Iran wants nothing from us or our Friends but our Death. They do not want Land, Money, or even just our Respect. They want us DEAD. The only thing they understand is FORCE.

So I understand, although still not sure I understand the Need for THOUSANDS of them, but I understand the NEED of having a Nuclear Bomb. I understand the Necessity of having a Strong Military. I understand the NEED of the use of Force in certain circumstances. But I also understand the need of having something else in our arsenal. The WILL to use it.

So whenever I see a story like this, I wonder, if our Enemies do not believe we have the WILL to use them, does it matter? Is this a good thing? Or is it not? The Ability to strike ANY Target in the World in one hour? According to the AFP - Pentagon successfully tests hypersonic flying bomb (AFP) – 17 hours ago

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon on Thursday held a successful test flight of a flying bomb that travels faster than the speed of sound and will give military planners the ability to strike targets anywhere in the world in less than a hour.

Launched by rocket from Hawaii at 1130 GMT, the "Advanced Hypersonic Weapon," or AHW, glided through the upper atmosphere over the Pacific "at hypersonic speed" before hitting its target on the Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands, a Pentagon statement said.

Kwajalein is about 2,500 miles (4,000 kilometers) southwest of Hawaii. The Pentagon did not say what top speeds were reached by the vehicle, which unlike a ballistic missile is maneuverable.

Scientists classify hypersonic speeds as those that exceed Mach 5 -- or five times the speed of sound -- 3,728 miles (6,000 kilometers) an hour.
That's pretty cool. Imagine a Plane traveling that fast. 3,728 miles an hour? So now we have a Bomb that does so. That can hit anywhere in the World in one hour or less.

The test aimed to gather data on "aerodynamics, navigation, guidance and control, and thermal protection technologies," said Lieutenant Colonel Melinda Morgan, a Pentagon spokeswoman.

The US Army's AHW project is part of the "Prompt Global Strike" program which seeks to give the US military the means to deliver conventional weapons anywhere in the world within an hour.

On August 11, the Pentagon test flew another hypersonic glider dubbed HTV-2, which is capable of flying 27,000 kilometers per hour, but it was a failure.

The AHW's range is less than that of the HTV-2, the Congressional Research Service said in a report, without providing specifics.

The Pentagon has invested 239.9 million dollars in the Global Strike program this year, including 69 million for the flying bomb tested Thursday, CRS said.
So we spent $69 Million for this ONE Test Flight of this new Bomb? Now our Enemies know that if they show signs of attacking us, we could blow them to Smithereens before they could get their plans going. Great. But do they believe that we have the WILL to use it? It does no good to have it, if your Enemy KNOWS that you would never use it. With our current Commander and Chief, they don't fear that WILL.

The World is getting more and more Dangerous. Shariah Law and the Muslim Brotherhood is on a March throughout the Middle East. With Obama's help by the way. Little Hitler is one of the Main Possible Future Leaders of the entire Middle East. He is Building a Nuclear Bomb. Russian Warships are in Syria.

Russian warships are due to arrive at Syrian territorial waters, a Syrian news agency said on Thursday, indicating that the move represented a clear message to the West that Moscow would resist any foreign intervention in the country's civil unrest.
Lets not forget about Putin's quest to bring aback the old USSR. His taken back of old Russian Territories and seemingly wishing for another Cold War with US. Let's not forget about North Korea. While all this is going on, it is a good thing that our Enemies know we now have a new weapon in our arsenal. But do they FEAR we will ever use it? With Obama? The sad answer is NO.

Israel Getting Ready, Iran Getting Ready, Is Obama Paying Attention?

Israel KNOWS that it's up to them to defend themselves.

Hey folks

It's true. As we have talked about many times, Obama is no friend of Israel. All his actions and even his own words proves it. We all know, including the IAEA, that Iran is working on a Nuclear Bomb. We all know that Iran WILL USE IT. There is no doubt in anyones's mind what is going on.

Because of Obama's obvious love for the Palestinians, and anything Islam, and his obvious disdain for Israel, Israel KNOWS that it's up to them to defend themselves.

They are not going to just sit back and wait to be Annihilated. Iran knows this as well. So as Israel gets ready, Iran is getting ready. According to YNet News - Iran conducts 4-day air defense drill Exercise in east Iran aimed at 'heightening level of preparedness amid possible threats to airspace, nuclear centers' Dudi Cohen Published: 11.18.11, 18:23 / Israel News

The Iranian army was set to launch an air defense drill Friday evening simulating an attack on the country's nuclear facilities, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

According to the regime's mouthpiece, the four-day drill will be held in eastern Iran and stress "the characteristics of the Islamic Republic's defense doctrine in the framework of the heightened air defense alert level."

The military exercise comes just six days after a blast at an army base outside Tehran left several members of the Revolutionary Guard dead, including a senior officer who was a key figure in Iran's missile program. Some western media outlets claimed Israel was behind the explosion.

The report said the drill will include the use of "missile systems, advanced anti-aircraft artillery and various radar systems, as well as "tactical maneuvers aimed at increasing the level of preparedness amid possible threats to the Islamic homeland's airspace, particularly with regards to the country's...nuclear centers."
Is Obama watching?

Last June the Revolutionary Guard conducted an extensive drill in northwest Iran, during which surface-to-surface missiles were launched.

The past few weeks have seen a stream of leaks from Israel regarding the possibility of a military strike on Iran, this after an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report said Tehran has been working toward building a nuclear weapon since 2003 despite sanctions imposed by the international community.

Israel recently test-launched a ballistic missile and conducted an aerial drill in Italy with the participation of IDF fighter pilots. The IDF also held a home front drill simulating a missile attack on the greater Tel Aviv area – a realistic scenario in case of an attack on Iran's nuclear sites.

Iran tends to conduct high-profile military exercises once every few months to showcase the country's technological and military innovations.

Meanwhile, governors of the UN nuclear watchdog approved a resolution on Friday voicing "increasing concern" about Iran's atomic work, cranking up international pressure on Tehran after a UN report said it appeared to have worked on designing an atom bomb.
So they TALK while Iran works. Tough Talk will NOT bring this situation to a close, but to a head. While they Talk Tough and while Obama speaks vain and empty Rhetoric, Little Hitler builds his Bomb, tests his Missiles, and looks forward to the big Boom.

Once again folks, Iran will not stop until they are stopped. All the Tough Talk, all the Sanctions, all the attempts to make nicey nice, mean NOTHING. Iran continues it's Nuclear quest. Time to end this NOW. Yes, by ANY Means necessary.

GE Filed 57,000-Page Tax Return, Paid No Taxes on $14 Billion in Profits

"So Petey, you're ok with this? "General Electric, one of the largest corporations in America, filed a whopping 57,000-page federal tax return earlier this year but didn't pay taxes on $14 billion in profits. The return, which was filed electronically, would have been 19 feet high if printed out and stacked." Ahh, capitalism at it's best."

Hey folks,

Since I couldn't be here on Friday, I thought I would take a few seconds to answer a question that I would have on Friday, TODAY. I love when the Liberals use GE to attempt to ask Got ya questions. {Smile}

Here is the Link: The Weekly Standard - GE Filed 57,000-Page Tax Return, Paid No Taxes on $14 Billion in Profits 1:11 PM, Nov 17, 2011 • By JOHN MCCORMACK

General Electric, one of the largest corporations in America, filed a whopping 57,000-page federal tax return earlier this year but didn't pay taxes on $14 billion in profits. The return, which was filed electronically, would have been 19 feet high if printed out and stacked.

The fact that GE paid no taxes in 2010 was widely reported earlier this year, but the size of its tax return first came to light when House budget committee chairman Paul Ryan (R, Wisc.) made the case for corporate tax reform at a recent townhall meeting. "GE was able to utilize all of these various loopholes, all of these various deductions--it's legal," Ryan said. Nine billion dollars of GE's profits came overseas, outside the jurisdiction of U.S. tax law. GE wasn't taxed on $5 billion in U.S. profits because it utilized numerous deductions and tax credits, including tax breaks for investments in low-income housing, green energy, research and development, as well as depreciation of property.

"I asked the GE tax officer, 'How long was your tax form?'" Ryan said. "He said, 'Well, we file electronically, we don't measure in pages.'" Ryan asked for an estimate, which came back at a stunning 57,000 pages. When Ryan relayed the story at the townhall meeting in Janesville, there were audible gasps from the crowd.
So is there a problem? Yup. And it is the Republicans attempting to fix it. However, GE IS Obama. {Laughing} Obama IS in bed with GE. He is OK with them paying nothing. They are his friends. He is only against people that are not his friends. He is only against those that do NOT contribute to his Causes and Campaign.

Ken Kies, a tax lawyer who represents GE, confirmed to THE WEEKLY STANDARD the tax return would have been 57,000 pages had it been filed on paper. The size of GE's tax return has more than doubled in the last five years.

Ryan used the data point to underscore the irrationality of the corporate income tax code. He also contrasted GE with UPS to make the point that the corporate income tax code doesn't make sense. "UPS paid a 34 percent effective tax rate," while its biggest foreign competitor, DHL, paid a 24 percent tax rate, Ryan said.

The problems with the corporate taxes occur because "Republicans and Democrats, both parties, sit in Congress and they're picking winners and losers," Ryan said. The solution, according to the Wisconsin congressman: "Get rid of those loopholes and lower tax rates by a corresponding amount. Don't lose revenue, but for every loophole you pull out, and deny a company from being able to get this little carveout, you can lower the rates so we can be more competitive with our competitors overseas. We want to stem the bleeding of jobs going overseas, of foreign companies buying U.S. companies and taking headquarters overseas."
Do you remember what the Don, Trump, said not too long ago? He said raise my taxes, but give me back my deductions. Why? He would actually pay LESS. What the Republicans want to do is lower Rates for all, but CLOSE the Loopholes, which would FORCE someone like GE to PAY their "Fair Share." So someone like UPS would pay less, but ALL would pay SOMETHING and that would INCREASE Revenue in total. For some reason, I don't know why, the Libs and Obama are just not down with that. They give too much money to them? They do not want to bite the hand that feeds them? Just a thought.

Your Mental State Prior to Birth Just As Important

We all know about Postpartum Depression (PPD), But your Mental State PRIOR to Birth is just as important.

Hey folks,

With a few of my friends giving Birth lately, and having gone through it twice myself, well, my Wife, I know all about Postpartum Depression or (PPD). It is also called Postnatal Depression, which is a form of Clinical Depression which can affect Women after Childbirth. I can tell you that with MY Wife, B Vitamins were a VERY Positive help to her.

If you have Children, or know someone who does, there is a good chance you know, or have at least HEARD of PPD. But what you may not know, is that your {The Woman's} Mental State PRIOR to Birth is just as important. According to Health Day - Mom-to-Be's Mental State May Affect Child's Development Emotional consistency before and after birth seems best for baby, study suggests

THURSDAY, Nov. 17 (HealthDay News) -- A fetus is sensitive to, and can be affected by, the expectant mother's mental state, a new study suggests.

University of California, Irvine, researchers recruited pregnant women and tested them for depression before and after they gave birth. The women's babies were tested after birth to assess how well they were developing.

Consistency in the mother's mental state appeared to be important to a baby's well-being. Development was best in babies with mothers who were either depression-free or had depression before and after giving birth.

Development was slower in babies born to mothers who went from depressed before birth to non-depressed after birth or from non-depressed before birth to depressed after birth, the investigators found.
I would love to read this Study in total. I am fascinated by the possible reasons behind the shift in Moods between Prior and After Birth and how and or why that effects the way it does. I DO see the Logic in the Prior effecting the Mental Well being of the Child. Like Food, the Baby eats what you eat. This is why you should not Drink and Smoke, ETC Prior to Birth. I have and continue to see the effects on the Baby, with BOTH of our Moods and Mental States. Little Eli is happy when we are. Sad when we are. And gets Angry and or Scared when one of us are.

So all this makes sense to me. However, I'm not sure I'm understanding the aspects of dramatic shift of the State of Mind of the Mother Pre and Post Birth. Would be interesting to read that.

The researchers said they were surprised by the strength of the finding, which will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Psychological Science.

Some might incorrectly interpret the results to mean that a mother who is depressed before birth should be left that way after birth for the well-being of her baby, the study authors noted in a journal news release.

"A more reasonable approach would be to treat women who present with prenatal depression," researcher Curt A. Sandman said in the news release. "We know how to deal with depression."

In another study, Sandman and colleagues found differences in the brain structures of older children whose mothers were anxious during pregnancy. Anxiety often occurs together with depression.

"We believe that the human fetus is an active participant in its own development and is collecting information for life after birth," Sandman said. "It's preparing for life based on messages the mom is providing."
Again, this all makes Logical Sense to me. It is in you. It is Part of you. It is ALIVE and Learning. I get it. As I said before. We all know about Postpartum Depression (PPD), But your Mental State PRIOR to Birth is just as important. As is how you act around your hypersensitive Baby after.

Great Study in the Field of completely idiotic useless Studies, like Men and Women are born different. {Smile} So guys? If your Women says she wants you to go to the store at 2 am and get her Ice Cream? Get your lazy butt up and go. Not only are you making her happy, you are making your unborn Child happy as well. {Smile}

IWA For Sunday 112011

When thoughts turn to actions, it can become a problem.

Hey folks,

OK. Be truthful here. Back when you were in school, you saw someone that looked REALLY good. You were attracted to such person. It doesn't matter if you are in a relationship, they are, or if they even know you exist. How about NOW. At work? That cute checkout girl. The Strapping young man at the Library that just winked at you? Whatever. Thoughts start to fill your head.

Come on. You know this is true. The thoughts of "What if, If Only, Wonder whats" fills your head. The Super Power you would love to have at that moment is X Ray Vision. Then again, nowadays, you really do not need that is a lot of cases. Then you go home? It's normal folks. It's Human Nature.

They also say, that with age comes wisdom. So take someone who is, oh I don't know, 75, has been through a lot. He should be more than aware that this type of behaviour is, uh, frowned upon. You see, although this type of thought process is Human Nature, it is NOT OK to act on them. When thoughts turn to actions, it can become a problem. So this guy should have known better. According to CBS Chicago - Teacher Accused Of Masturbating In Class Updated 11/15/11 – 10:45 p.m.

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (CBS) – A teacher at a suburban Christian school has been charged with a felony, after he was fired for allegedly masturbating behind a podium while teaching class.

As CBS 2′s Dana Kozlov reports, Schaumburg police said he might have been doing it for the past 10 years or more.

Paul LaDuke, 75, has been charged with sexual exploitation of a child. LaDuke has been a math teacher at the school for 26 years.

On Friday, a student at Schaumburg Christian School, located at 200 N. Roselle Rd., reported to another teacher that LaDuke appeared to be masturbating while seated at his podium during class.

The teacher notified the school administration, which launched an internal investigation. LaDuke was fired on Friday and, on Monday, school officials contacted Schaumburg police.

Detectives interviewed several students and LaDuke was arrested on Monday.

Investigators determined that, while seated at a podium in class on Friday, LaDuke unzipped and lowered his pants and masturbated while students were present in the classroom.
What could have POSSIBLY been going through this guys mind. 26 years as a Teacher. 75 years old? Seriously? It's OK to drop your pants and Masterbate while your Kids are present?

“Through the course of our investigation, our detectives have come to believe that this has happened several times per year for 10 years or more, possibly,” Schaumburg Police Sgt. John Nebel said.

Asked if there had been previous complaints that did not result in any action against LaDuke, Nebel said no.

“It’s not that it’s been reported and nothing has been done, it’s just that during the course of the investigation, we’ve come to learn certain information and I can’t go further for the fact that there’s a possibility of more charges before a grand jury,” Nebel said.

Police said there is no evidence that LaDuke touched any students in an inappropriate manner or harmed them physically.

LaDuke is due for a bond hearing on Wednesday at the Rolling Meadows courthouse.

Any current or former students or parents with information on the case were being urged to call Schaumburg police at 847-882-3534
As with all of these types of things, there is little doubt that there will indeed me more that come out over this. I hope that if found guilty, this guy gets what he deserves, and Victims are taken care of. This is really inexcusable.

Congratulations Paul LaDuke, for not understanding how wrong it is to keep your pant on in a room full of Students, you ARE the Idiot of the Week. But don't worry, If you are found guilty, where you are going, there will be plenty of people to see your Pee Pee. Some may even what you to see theirs.

47 Percent Want Obamacare Repealed

I agree with the 50 percent.

Hey folks,

A new Poll out there, I know, I know, Polls, but a new Poll out there says that 47 Percent want Obamacare repealed. They understand that it costs WAY too much, kills the best Healthcare system in the World, and is simple NOT sustainable. We do not want the Government deciding who gets what treatment, from what Doctor, when. We all understand that this will mean that some Government Bureaucrat, sitting in some office somewhere in DC, will be tasked with who lives and who dies.

The problem with Obamacare is a simple one to understand. It is not viable. It is NOT sustainable. So Rationing WILL be a MANDATORY necessity. We already know how they will do this. Obama and his Health Adviser already told us. Age will play a major factor, along with the cost of the Treatment. In the Words of Dr. Emanuel

"However, other things are rarely equal—whether to save one 20-year-old, who might live another 60 years, if saved, or three 70-year-olds, who could only live for another 10 years each—is unclear."
Remember him? That's right. He is Rahm Emanuel's Brother and one who helped in the creation of Obamacare. He said this also.

"We had a big controversy in the United States when there was a limited number of dialysis machines. In Seattle, they appointed what they called a 'God committee' to choose who should get it,"
AKA Death Panels. He is also the guy that wants to do away with the Hippocratic Oath. Costs to much to "Do not harm." Hell Obama told someone that their Grandma should just take a Pill and Die. Remember that? So we KNOW what is coming with Obamacare.

According to Reuters - More Americans than not want health law repeal: poll

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As the Supreme Court prepares to review President Barack Obama's healthcare reform, more Americans want to see it repealed than want to keep it, a poll released on Wednesday shows.

A Gallup survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults found that 47 percent favor the repeal of healthcare reform, versus 42 percent who want the law kept in place. Eleven percent had no opinion.
I wonder if the fact that nearly HALF this country is Unemployed right now had a factor? This may or may no surprise you. I agree with the 50 percent.

But the survey also showed that 50 percent of Americans believe the federal government has a responsibility to make sure everyone has health coverage, compared with 46 percent who do not.
Now I think we can all agree that for those US CITIZENS, big stipulation there, for those US CITIZENS who TRULY have no Healthcare, the Government SHOULD come up with something to help THOSE folks. That number is actually not that big. Cut out all those that are here Illegally, and those that do not have Healthcare due to their CHOICE, and what you have is somewhere around the size of Rush Limbaugh's Listening Audience. Somewhere around 20 Million people. That's IT.

No one in this country wants to see people die in the streets. People in this country, Legal or not, are NOT dieing in the streets. They just simply are not. EVERYONE in this country can go to the Hospital when needed, regardless of their ability to pay.

What we do need, is some kind of program to take care of those that do not have Health Insurance, that can not afford it. But we do NOT want a complete takeover of the ENTIRE Healthcare Industry, with the Government deciding who lives and who dies.

According to this piece:

The findings said 56 percent of adults continue to prefer private insurance versus 39 percent who would favor a government-run system. That compares with a 61 percent to 34 percent margin a year ago.
So although this is not being reported, AT ALL, or even talked about any more, STILL, 56 percent would rather leave this to the Free Market. It is in the hands of the Supreme Court now. Should be interesting to see how this turns out. Do away with this Nonsensical Government Overreach, and take a HUGE step in helping to reduce the Debt. Allow it to stand, and take a HUGE step in the direction we are already heading. The Death of America.

Bill Maher Calls Herman Cain An Ape

Where are all the CRIES of Racism?

Hey folks,

I think we may have found our Idiot of the Week already. But then again, this guy IS an Idiot. He lives in Idiotville. Hell, he may even be the Mayor. But this is a bit over the top, even for him. When is someone going to ask that this guy go back into the obscure shadows of which he came? He is not even funny any more.

Of course I'm talking about Bill Maher. We are use to his blindly repeating completely false, and at times, insane, Liberal Talking Points. But this? Imagine if a Conservative said this about Obama. Seriously. Imagine a Conservative talking about Obama, then say he is hoping for Clinton to pull it out because she is the only thing standing in the way of the Rise of the Apes. Can you imagine?

Well, that IS what he did say about Cain. According to MRC - After Mentioning Cain, Bill Maher Says Romney Only Thing Stopping 'The Rise of the Apes' By: Tim Graham Monday, November 14, 2011 11:29 AM EST

Appearing on ABC's Good Morning America, Monday, to shill for his latest book, Bill Maher told George Stephanopoulos he's rooting for Mitt Romney to win the Republican nomination. "At least he eats with a knife and fork. I mean, he is all that stands between us and the rise of the apes."
Yup. Here is the Exchange.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So, what's got you irritated this morning?

MAHER: Being up in the morning. I'm not irritated. I'm a comedian. So, I'm living high on the hog on this presidential campaign.

Maher offered an endorsement that Mitt Romney probably doesn't want, exclaiming, "I'm rooting for him." He added, "You have got to feel bad for Mitt Romney. I mean, he's been led, so far, by Trump, then Bachmann. Then Perry. Then Cain." This led to Maher's very questionable "ape" comment, as captured by MRC's Scott Whitlock:

STEPHANOPOULOS: You have got- And- I saw you and you have got either, very, very rich, or very very certain of your opinions. Because on, what, Friday night, you offered a million to one bet, Michelle Caruso-Cabrera put up a dollar. You put up a million saying Herman Cain will not be president.

MAHER: Yeah. Yeah, that was a couple years ago. That was even before the sex scandal. You know? Yes. I think I would bet a million dollars against Herman Cain. Wouldn't you take that bet? Is not going to be the candidate.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Only reason I wouldn't. I agree with your bottom line. I just don't feel like putting up a million dollars to one.

MAHER: No. And I don't really have that kind of money to lose on a bet either. But, I mean, this is a guy wearing a pimp hat through a scandal, a sex scandal. So, I feel like that pretty much sealed my thing. This is a guy who has a tax plan that we found out was written pretty much by his branch manager at Wells Fargo. You know?

STEPHANOPOULOS: Out in Cleveland.

MAHER: He went into cash some checks and the teller said, "Can I do anything else for you?" And he said, "Yeah, could you rewrite the tax code for the United States of America?"

STEPHANOPOULOS: Yet, he's, he's still leading the field. Still is. I mean, he's starting to fall just a little, but still leading the field.

MAHER: But, that's just because they hate Mitt Romney.

STEPHANOPOULOS: They do.

MAHER: You have got to feel bad for Mitt Romney. I mean, he's been led, so far, by Trump, then Bachmann. Then Perry. Then Cain.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But, he kinda hangs in there. He's everyone's second choice.

MAHER: I'm rooting for him. You know? Because, look, in a country with only two parties, the Republican can always win. I mean, at least he eats with a knife and fork. I mean, he is all that stands between us and the rise of the apes.
So according to Bill Maher, Mitt is the only thing blocking Cain from "Pimping" his way to power. So he calls him a Pimp. Then says if not for Romney, the Apes would Rise. SERIOUSLY? Where are all the CRIES of Racism? Where are all the calls for Billy Boy to step down? Don't hold your Breath. This is another CLEAR Example of the Left being who they are.

Now if Stephanopoulos were a REAL Reporter, he would have called him out on this. But of course, he's NOT. He is just a talking head for the Liberal Loons. So he just continued on. But it's time that people starting making a big deal out of things like this. It's time to show who the REAL Racists are. They LIVE on the Left. And it IS, just that simple.

Keystone Pipeline Stall, NOTHING To Do With The Environment

Obama using YOU as Political Pawns.

Hey folks,

I first told you about the Keystone Pipeline back on Tuesday, June 14, 2011. I told you how this could create an environment where 92 Percent of US Liquid Fuel Produced Here and Canada. 92 percent folks. Open one or two more places here in the US? 100 percent is not out of the question. Remember when George W. just MENTIONED we will start Drilling more here and using our OWN? Prices FELL over night by Dollars. They Plummeted. Imagine if we did not rely on Foreign Governments, other than our Friends in the North, for ANY of our Energy Needs?

Imagine all the JOBS. Imagine our National Security INCREASING by Hundreds of percent. With this Movement, actually assisted by Obama, of the Muslim Brotherhood taking over the Middle East, Imagine ONE Guy in Charge. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the Guy that DREAMS of being the one. Now imagine if he DOES it. Then he says "No more Oil for you." This is not a scare tactic. This is a EXSTREMLY REAL Possibility.

However, we need not worry about any of that if we were using our OWN Resources. We have MORE Oil and Natural Gas, in just one spot here, than the ENTIRE Middle East Combined. We need not worry about someone coming along and saying you want? You do this. ETC. Imagine NO Gas. Imagine NO Heating Oil. Imagine NOTHING.

Now Imagine all the Jobs. Now Imagine all the Revenue. Now Imagine NO worries of this. Now imagine CHEAP Gas. CHEAP Heating Oil. Affordable for all. It is not a Pipe Dream. Well, since one of the things we are talking about IS a Pipe, I guess you could call it a Pipe Dream. But it's not what the Liberal Loons are smoking. This is REAL. Reality. Possible in a relatively SHORT period of time.

So what does Obama do? He puts the Brakes on the whole thing. Why? Because he CARES about the Environment. According to The Foundry - Obama Delays Keystone Pipeline: Delays Jobs and Energy, Too Nicolas Loris November 10, 2011 at 4:48 pm

The Obama Administration announced it would delay the construction of the $7 billion Keystone XL pipeline that would bring in more than 700,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta, Canada, to the Texas Gulf coast.

What this delay really means is that President Obama is putting off an important election year decision in which two of his largest supporters—labor unions and environmentalists—are split on the issue. This tactic allows the decision to be delayed until after the 2012 elections.

More importantly, this means a delay in access to easy imports from our northern neighbor, the creation of thousands of jobs, and the generation of revenue for the states where the pipeline passes. Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas are collectively projected to collect $5.2 billion in property tax revenue as a result of building the pipeline.
So SCREW Jobs. SCREW Affordable Energy. SCREW Increased Revenue. Why? Because he cares. He is thinking about the Environment. It's all a bunch of BS folks. He doesn't care about the Environment. He cares about VOTES.

Remember what he said about all those Wind Farms? Those that ARE Killing Rare and Endangered Birds DAILY? Remember what he said to all the Environuts that actually wanted the Studies Done? He said, "Kill the Damn Birds." He didn't use those exact words. But that IS what he said. He, his Administration said they wanted all those Environuts to take all there little Studies, roll them into one, and get done with it, so he can further his AGENDA.

Forget the fact they are not a MAYBE threat. They ARE killing Rare and Endangered Birds and Bats. They ARE posing a threat to the Health and Well being of the People they are closest to. We get story after story of Wind Farms going Silent, because of the Public COMPLAINING about them. When the Wind doesn't Blow, how do they run? On OIL. If they are found to be a failure, what happens? They are ABANDONED. Left to stand there and Corrode. But all that? It's COOL with Obama. Hundreds of Thousands of Jobs lost because of his attacks on Oils and Natural Gas? He's COOL with that. Grandma can't heat her Home in the Winter? He's COOL with that. Hey, he told us that with his Plan, Energy Costs would "Necessarily Skyrocket."

So FAILED Wind Farms Killing Endangered Species. Cool. I can hear the Conversation now. I bet it went something like this. Keystone Pipeline? "Uh, what's that?" "Well, Mr President, it's a way to create thousands of jobs, Generate Revenue for the States where the Pipeline passes. Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, ensuring you get Votes from these States, and Texas are collectively projected to collect $5.2 Billion in Property Tax Revenue as a result of building the Pipeline." "Uh Great! Lets do it." "OK Mr. President, just sign here." "Uh, wait. What's this? It says something about Oil?" "Well yeah Mr. President." "Uh NO!! No! We can't have that. I'm engaging in Class Warfare. Uh, Trying to push the Green Movement. Uh, I'm making Oil to be the Enemy. I can't do this." "But Mr. President. Think of all the Benefits." "I don't care. I need Votes. I don't need this. Uh, say it's the Environment. An endangered Jumping Field Mouse might, uh, hit it's head on the Pipe while running through the Field, uh, or something." "What about all the Birds being SLAUGHTERED every day at Wind Farms?" "Birds? Who cares? Just say NO. No Pipeline. Uh, right now anyway. Wait until I get Re-elected, then maybe we'll talk about it."

But that's Josh. {Smile}

Liver Cancer, Signs To Look For
DLA For Sunday 111311
IWA for Sunday 111311


OK. This is the kind of stuff I just love. It's most likely because Liberal Sheeple out there just do not get it. They really don't. They simply DO and THINK whatever they are told. Hate the Rich. They Democrats LOVE You. They are for the Little People. HATE the Rich. Lets leave aside that the Liberal Democrats are Millionaires and Billionaires. {Smile} As a matter if fact, remember that List of the Richest People and Companies in this Country? EVERY ONE in the top ten are Liberal Democrats, and or OWNED by Liberal Democrats. Look at this house.

Yup. It's Michael Moore’s Michigan Vacation Mansion. Yet, Mikey, who has never met a Donut that he doesn't like, comes out and makes Movies filled with inconsistencies and, well, outright LIES. The Sheeple? They flock to see them and give Mikey their hard earned money to listen to him tell them how they should HATE the Rich. People MADE Mikey Moron. Then people like Mikey, tell you to HATE Rich People. Then when they leave the Spot Light, they go home to THIS. According to Big Hollywood - Michael Moore’s Massive Michigan Vacation Mansion Beyond 99 Percent’s Wildest Dreams

Left-wing filmmaker Michael Moore has been touring Occupy Wall Street demonstrations across the country–including some of the most violent, such as Occupy Oakland–urging activists to continue their fight against the wealthy “one percent” of Americans.

Initially, Moore tried to deny that his massive wealth made him a member of that one percent. Even when forced to admit the obvious, Moore suggested that he was not always among the one percent, based on his income: “Other years, like last year, I don’t have a job (no movie, no book) and so I make a lot less.”
I bet you he made more than most of YOU out there. Uh, how much of HIS Wealth has he given away to the Little People? Anyone? Can ANYONE name a Charity that he gives to?

The fact is that Moore is so wealthy that he does not need to worry about his income. According to public tax records, Moore owns a massive vacation home on Torch Lake, Michigan–one of the most elite communities in the United States–in addition to his posh Manhattan residence.

Through an independent source, Big Hollywood has obtained exclusive photographs of the house matching the address of Moore’s waterfront mansion. It is the kind of luxurious summer home that 99 percent of Americans can only dream of owning.

Moore’s vacation property is located on the southeastern shore of Torch Lake itself, which locals tout as the “third most beautiful lake in the world.” Here is an aerial view of the house, situated on the turquoise blue waters for which Torch Lake is famous:

Moore’s property has been officially assessed at close to $1 million (see below; we have redacted Moore’s addresses and parcel number). That is likely a gross underestimate, but nevertheless places Moore’s vacation home near the top one percent of home values in affluent Forest Home Township, and among the upper crust of residential properties in the state of Michigan. (Update 11/11/11: Several readers have pointed out that in Michigan, the S.E.V. is half the estimated fair market value of the home, so Moore’s Torch Lake vacation home is likely worth close to $2 million.)
So the next time you hear someone like Mikey, or Liberal Democrats, tell you that YOU should hate the Rich, just remember. they only mean Rich Non-Liberals. They literally mean hate who we tell you to hate. Even though we ARE the 1 Percent. {Sigh} Just a thought for ya on this Beautiful Sunday Morning.

Going to fill my Cup. I need it today. Be right back.

So Glad OWS Is Such A Peacful Movement.

Maybe the Tea Party should learn something from these Pigs, uh, Liberal Protesters.

Hey folks,

I HAVE to comment on this. I clinked on Drudge Friday Afternoon. What did I see? Got to love these Headlines:

Dead man in Salt Lake City...
Tuberculosis in Atlanta...
'Zuccotti Lung' on Wall Street...
Suicide in Vermont...
Murder in Oakland...


Seriously folks, check these out.

Dead man in Salt Lake City... :

Man found dead in Pioneer Park, Occupy SLC ordered to leave both camps. It appears as though the death may have been the result of both carbon monoxide poisoning and a drug overdose, police said.
Tuberculosis in Atlanta...:

Tuberculosis Breaks Out At Occupy Atlanta’s Base November 10, 2011 1:55 PM ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) – The home base for Occupy Atlanta has tested positive for tuberculosis.

The Fulton County Health Department confirmed Wednesday that residents at the homeless shelter where protesters have been occupying have contracted the drug-resistant disease.
'Zuccotti Lung' on Wall Street... :

Protesters Coming Down With the "Zuccotti Lung" Park conditions put demonstrators at risk for variety of sicknesses, officials say.
Suicide in Vermont...:

Future of Occupy Burlington encampment uncertain after police clear City Hall Park to investigate man's death Just a day after the joyful spontaneity of a Gogol Bordello performance Wednesday night at City Hall Park, Thursday’s shooting that police believe may have been self-inflicted spiraled into a tense confrontation between Burlington police and some protesters over access to the park.
Murder in Oakland...:

Occupy Oakland: Man shot to death near camp Matthai Kuruvila,Demian Bulwa, Chronicle Staff Writers Friday, November 11, 2011 A young man was fatally shot Thursday evening just yards from the Occupy Oakland encampment outside City Hall. And before the ambulance had even pulled away, people were debating whether the killing was somehow linked to the month-old gathering.
I just could believe this. They say that the Tea Party Protests were nothing. That the Occupy Wall Street Protests are the Real Deal. Lets compare. Shall we?

The Tea Party gathers. Most on their Days Off. They HAVE Jobs. They Cheer, Applaud, State their Clear and Concise Message. Have Speakers. Clean up. Go home.

OWS? See above. Along with all that. Their message is deluded. Most are being PAID to be there, or have no idea WHY they are there. Ask for Free Stuff from those they are Protesting. Then deposit money in the Evil Wells Fargo Bank. They also defecate on Police Cars, Masturbate in Public. Rape and Steal. They turn the Places they are staying at into a Pig Sty, cause Property Damage, and they refuse to feed the Homeless. You know, those less fortunate than themselves?

Yet the Media PRAISE OSW, while denouncing the Tea Party. I guess maybe they are right? After reading the above Headlines, for just one day? Maybe the Tea Party should learn something from these Pigs, uh, Liberal Protesters. Maybe this is how the Media sees a successful, peaceful, and meaningful, Protest. Maybe this is how the Media sees all Americans. This IS the Liberal Base. This IS who these people are. They are what the Liberals have created. Sad thing is, their numbers are growing. More and more people are being taught Entitlements. More and more People in this country want someone to take care of them Cradle to the Grave. They have become Ignorant, Lawless, Greedy, Pigs.

Truth is though, the REAL America? The American not in the Spotlight of the Media? They ARE the Tea Party. They ARE Christian. They ARE Conservative. Thankfully, they are also DONE. We tried Liberalism. Full on, unadulterated, Liberalism. We are far worse off than we have ever been. That Bubble I told you about? It's bursting all over the place. People are waking up and realizing that Liberalism is not something to compromise with. It is something that needs to be defeated. Done away with. This Country needs to be reversed. It needs to be taken back from the likes of Obama and Crew.

2012 is right around the Corner. I guess we will see who shows up to Vote. I am confident that there are not enough of these OWS Kooks out there to pull it off. I would like to think that there are not enough Brain Dead Sheeple out there to help them pull it out. If REAL Americans show up. We will easily throw all these Bums out. We will be on the right track to reverse some of the Damage they have caused. I NEW Dawn of Hope and Change will be birthed. We can not afford another 4 years. We just can't.
Peter

Israel To Attack Iran SOON?

What the American News WON'T tell you.

Hey folks,

It's true. As I have been telling you all along. Israel CAN'T trust US. Thank you Obama. Watching his actions, and listening to his words, with the latest dis coming at the G-20 Summit, they feel pretty sure that they may have to go it alone.

Unlike Obama however, that will NOT stop them from doing what they KNOW they must do. Not just for protection, but perhaps for their VERY SURVIVAL.

According to the UK Daily Mail - Israel may launch strike on Iran as soon as next month to prevent development of nuclear weapons Senior Foreign Office figure: ‘We’re expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the new year’ By Tim Shipman Last updated at 8:30 AM on 10th November 2011

Israel will launch military action to prevent Iran developing a nuclear weapon as soon as Christmas, intelligence chiefs have warned.

A report by a UN watchdog into Iran’s nuclear ambitions ‘completely discredits’ the Islamic nation’s protestations of innocence, according to Foreign Secretary William Hague.

The International Atomic Energy Agency found that Iran is developing a nuclear test facility, nuclear detonators and computer modelling for a nuclear warhead that would fit on an existing missile.
They should have never gotten this far folks. People like I, and others, have been watching and warning EVERYONE we can about this. They are on the cusp, if not already there, of having a Nuclear Bomb. All the Smiling and waving, and Invites to a Hot Dog BBQ at the White House, has done NOTHING. All the Sanctions have done NOTHING. All the well wishes and apologies have done NOTHING. All the denials of what has been going on for years, have helped Little Hitler get to where he is today. And? Say it with me. He will not stop until someone stops him.

Sources say the understanding at the top of the British Government is that Israel will attempt to strike against the nuclear sites ‘sooner rather than later’ – with logistical support from the U.S.
Uh, I doubt it,,,,,,,,WAIT!!! Hold on a Second. This ACTUALLY may be true. We do have an Election coming up. Didn't a Top Democrat Adviser say maybe he SHOULD Bomb Iran. It would help him in the up coming Election? Get the Jewish Vote, ETC? Maybe this IS true.

A senior Foreign Office figure has revealed that ministers have been told to expect Israeli military action, adding: ‘We’re expecting something as early as Christmas, or very early in the new year.’

Officials believe President Barack Obama would have to support the Israelis or risk losing vital Jewish-American support in the next presidential election.

In recent weeks, Ministry of Defence sources confirmed that contingency plans have been drawn up in the event that the UK decided to support military action.

But the source ruled out direct British support, adding: ‘Of course we are not in favour of Iran developing a bomb – but do we think they’d use it: no.
OF COURSE THEY WOULD. You Idiot. Little Hitler would use it in a heartbeat. He is not building one to sit on. His whole goal is Wipe Israel off the Map.

‘The bigger concern is it will be impossible to stop Saudi Arabia and Turkey from developing their own weapons.’

Mr Hague said Britain would push for more sanctions against Tehran when the IAEA committee meets later this month.

Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, meanwhile, vowed not to retreat ‘one iota’ from its nuclear programme.
Told ya so. After all the Sanctions, and "Tough talk," Iran doubled down.

In a statement on Middle Eastern affairs, the Foreign Secretary was critical of Israel’s ‘occupation’ of Palestinian land.

But he announced Britain will abstain on a UN vote later this week to give statehood to Palestinians.

Yesterday the Iranian president gave a passionate speech to thousands of supporters in central Iran, and broadcast on live state television, denouncing the UN report. He hit out at the IAEA, saying it is discrediting itself by siding with 'baseless' U.S. claims that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

The U.S. has yet to comment on the findings, but France said it is ready to push for sanctions of 'an unprecedented scale' if Iran refuses to answer new questions about its nuclear programme.

Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said that if Iran fails to answer concerns raised by the report, the international community should raise diplomatic pressure to a new level.

China isn't publicly commenting yet on the U.N. assessment in a likely sign that it will wait for Washington and Moscow to signal their intentions. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei yesterday said that Beijing is studying the report and repeated calls for dialogue and co-operation.

Speaking to supporters in the city of Shahrekord, Ahmadinejad said Iran will not stop its nuclear development, adopting a defiant position against the report, which could spur efforts for new sanctions against his country.

He said: 'If you think you can change the situation of the world through putting pressures on Iran, you are deadly wrong. The Iranian nation will not withdraw an iota.'
He WILL if he is forced to. ONLY if he is forced to. WHEN he is forced to. If no one does anything to stop him, one day we will wake up to a BIG BOOM! This goes on to,,, no,, here it is. Read on. What the American News WON'T tell you.

Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, not weapons production. Ahmadinejad's regime is already thought to have built a top-secret explosives test facility at a site in Parchin, just outside Tehran, where it is conducting experiments to develop a weapon.

Scientists are building hi-tech precision detonators which would be essential for a nuclear device, and developing a uranium core for a nuclear warhead, the UN said.

The report also lays bare that Iranian scientists are trying to mount a nuclear payload into their Shahab 3 missiles - which can reach Israel, Iran’s arch foe.

The report compiled by Yukiya Amano is the strongest sign yet that Iran seeks to build a nuclear arsenal, despite Tehran's insistence its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes.

The document claims that while some of the suspected secret nuclear work by Iran can have peaceful purposes, 'others are specific to nuclear weapons.'

A 13-page attachment to the agency's Iran report details intelligence and IAEA research that shows Tehran working on all aspects of research toward making a nuclear weapon, including fitting a warhead onto a missile.

Ahead of the report's release, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak warned of a possible Israeli military strike against Iran's nuclear programme.

He told Israel Radio that he did not expect any new U.N. sanctions on Tehran to persuade it to stop its nuclear defiance, adding: 'We continue to recommend to our friends in the world and to ourselves, not to take any option off the table.'

The 'all options on the table' phrase is often used by Israeli politicians to mean a military assault.

While some of the suspected secret nuclear work outlined in the annex could also be used for peaceful purposes, 'others are specific to nuclear weapons', the report claims.

Some of the information contained in the annex was new - including evidence of a large metal chamber at a military site for nuclear-related explosives testing.
The bulk, however, was a compilation and expansion of alleged work already partially revealed by the agency.

But a senior diplomat familiar with the report said its significance lay in its comprehensiveness, thereby reflecting that Iran apparently had engaged in all aspects of testing that were needed to develop such a weapon.

Also significant was the agency's decision to share most of what it knows or suspect about Iran's secret work with the 35-nation IAEA board and the U.N. Security Council after being stonewalled by Tehran in its attempts to probe such allegations.

Copies of the report went to board members and the council, which has imposed four sets of U.N. sanction on Tehran for refusing to stop activities that could be used to make a nuclear weapon and refusing to cooperate with IAEA attempts to fully understand its nuclear program.

The agency said the annex was based on more than 1,000 pages of intelligence and other information forwarded by more than 10 nations and material gathered by the IAEA itself.

The report suggests that Iran made computer models of a nuclear warhead and includes satellite imagery of a large steel container the IAEA believes is used for nuclear arms-related high explosives tests.

In remarks broadcast on state television, Ahmadinejad said that International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano was simply repeating U.S. allegations. 'He delivers the papers that American officials hand on him,' Ahmadinejad said.

'I am sorry that a person is heading the agency who has no power by himself and violates the agency's regulations, too.'

He repeated Iran's stance that it is not involved in making a nuclear weapon: 'They should know that if we want to remove the hand of the U.S. from the world, we do not need bombs and hardware. We work based on thoughts, culture and logic.'
People are starting to wake up. Israel is FULLY awake. Some of our Presidential Candidates are awake. The World is starting to realize that Little Hitler is an ever growing THREAT! A Threat to Israel. A Threat to America. A Threat to ANYONE that will not assimilate into Shariah Law. Convert to Islam. One World under Islam with Littler Hitler in charge. Yes folks, it really IS just that simple.

Liver Cancer, Signs To Look For

Many people die every year of this.

Hey folks,

The big news this past week was the passing of Boxing Legend, Joe Frazier, of Liver Cancer. He was just 67 years old. This has prompted many to look into just what Liver Cancer really is. What causes it. How its Treated. ETC.

Many people die every year of this. You do not have to be Famous. Some of what you know is true, but some more information is always good to have. So lets look at Liver Cancer today, in today's Health and Science Segment.

Of course, when you have someone like Joe Frazier die of Cancer, it gets the World's attention. According to Yahoo Health - What Caused Joe Frazier's Liver Cancer? By Lisa Collier Cool Nov 08, 2011

Former heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier has lost his biggest fight—against liver cancer. Renowned for being the first to beat Muhammad Ali in the 1971 “Fight of the Century,” with a left hook seen around the world, Smokin’ Joe is also remembered for the dramatic rematch with his legendary rival, the 1975 Thrilla in Manila. The sports world was stunned to learn of the Olympic gold medalist and Hall of Famer’s death Monday at age 67—just one month after his diagnosis.

As recently as September, he was in Las Vegas signing autographs at the MGM Grand Hotel. Earlier this month, his health declined so rapidly that he reportedly began receiving hospice care. Here’s a look at the medical story behind his battle with liver cancer, which strikes about 24,000 Americans a year. Rates of the disease have been rising in the United States over the past several decades, the American Cancer Society reports, and, in other countries, it ranks as a leading cause of death.
I really do not have too much to add to this story. Check it out.

Who gets liver cancer?

The disease is about twice as common in men as women, with the highest rates among Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and African Americans, followed by Native Americans and Latinos. The disease typically strikes people in their 60s, like Frazier.

What are the risk factors?

In the U.S., the #1 risk factor is infection with the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Frazier’s family hasn’t announced if he had HCV, a chronic disease that affects more than 4 million Americans. If he did have hepatitis C, there are several ways he could have caught it. The disease is usually spread through exposure to the blood of an infected person, which could have occurred during a boxing match, since the brutal sport frequently causes blood loss.

Common ways the virus is transmitted include using contaminated needles for IV drug abuse, medical injections, tattooing, or sharing personal items, like razors, with an infected person. Getting a blood transfusion before 1992—when screening of the U.S. blood supply for the virus began—is another possible scenario, since he could have received one to treat boxing injuries in the 1970s. HCV can also be spread through unprotected sex, but sexual transmission is much less common than infection through exposure to tainted blood.

What else can trigger liver cancer?

In other countries, infection with hepatitis B virus is the most common risk factor. HBV is spread in similar ways, but has a higher rate of sexual transmission than HCV. Hepatitis B is more likely to spark noticeable symptoms, such as a flu-like illness and yellowing of the eyes or skin (jaundice), while HCV can silently damage the liver over decades, sometimes leading to cirrhosis or liver cancer. Only a small percent of people with HBV become chronic carriers, while HCV frequently becomes a chronic infection. Other causes of liver cancer include heavy alcohol use, certain inherited metabolic diseases, diabetes (mainly in diabetics who drink heavily), obesity, exposure to toxic chemicals, and use of anabolic steroids, a particular risk factor for athletes.
So just to simplify it a bit. Causes?

HVC
Heavy Drinking of Alcohol
Inherited Metabolic Diseases
Diabetes
If you have Diabetes and Drink you INCREASE your Risk.
Exposure to Toxic Chemicals. {This COULD include Pesticides}
Use of Anabolic Steroids {Which is NOT something that is being attributed to Frazier}

What’s the prognosis for people with liver cancer?

The disease is often fatal within a year of diagnosis. Only 10 percent of people with all stages of the disease combined survive 5 years, and those with advanced disease, as seems to be the case with Frazier since he needed hospice care, the rate is only 2 percent, according to American Cancer Society.
Only a 10 percent Survival Rate? Please folks, pay attention to this.

What are the symptoms?

The main reason why liver cancer has such a poor prognosis is that it doesn’t have specific warning signs. It’s unusual for people with the disease to develop abdominal pain unless they have a very large tumor. Some patients have unexplained weight loss or fevers. When the disease reaches an advanced stage, patients may have sudden abdominal swelling due to fluid buildup, jaundice, or bleeding. During a medical exam, doctors may notice a tender or enlarged liver.

How is the disease diagnosed?

Compounding the difficulty is detecting this disease early, since it often doesn’t show up in routine blood tests, including tests of liver function. Tumors can be detected through imaging tests, like MRI and CT scans. If liver cancer is suspected, doctors will usually do a biopsy, followed by further imaging tests to determine the stage of the disease, if cancer is found.

What’s the treatment?

Treatments for liver cancer include surgery, a liver transplant, radiation therapy, freezing or heating cancer cells to kill them, and injecting chemotherapy drugs into the liver.

What are the best ways to prevent liver cancer?

You can reduce your risk by avoiding IV drug abuse, making sure that hygienic methods are used if you get a tattoo, limiting or avoiding alcohol consumption, not sharing personal items that might expose you to another person’s blood, such as toothbrushes and razors, maintaining a healthy weight, and practicing safe sex.
GREAT Job Lisa Collier Cool! Thanks for taking the time to Post this. Also see PubMed Health - A.D.A.M. Medical Encyclopedia For even MORE information on Liver Cancer.

As I always say folks, if you have ANY questions, doubts, or concerns about your Health, PLEASE go see a Doctor. Early is best. Don't blow it off.
