Notice: King Abdullah is not in the UK, for his back surgery.
Brian Aiken is in jail for transporting legally owned firearms in the state of New Jersey.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have repeated their 2007 opinion that refusing to participate in abortion is unethical, and it could cause one’s board certification to be revoked.
So maybe ABOG’s certification isn’t the kind that physicians ought to be seeking since that organization relies on ACOG to determine what is ethical behavior. (See Section III, part F of the 2011 Bulletin for basic certification in obstetrics and gynecology.)
Yes it’s true, a physician could lose board certification for refusing to perform or participate in abortion, and this fact is not lost on the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Though Steve Miller, of Clarkston Georgia sought and gained rezoning for his organic produce farm, Dekalb county officials are still going after him for growing too many vegetables. They are prosecuting him and intend to fine him $5000 for the now defunct zoning problem.
See how easy it is to contact the Dekalb County Board of Commissioners? All their emails are right HERE!
So….. this man’s problem- which is currently just with his own county- ought to be made into a national issue, because it doesn’t stop in Georgia. The Feds wish to do similar things to all of us too.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran has been losing friends for a long time, we know. A number of other Muslim nations wish he would just disappear. In addition, there has been movement in the Iranian parliament to impeach the guy.
This pair of bombing attacks are not the first targeting Iran’s nuclear scientists.
These strikes were carried out in two different locations of Tehran.One bomb was attached to the window of a moving car and killed Dr Majid Shahriari, nuclear engineering prof at Tehran University, and wounded his wife.The second bomb seriously wounded nuclear physicist Dr Fereidoun Abbasi. and also injured his wife.
The bombings follow the stuxnet worm attack on Iran’s nuclear centrifuge apparatus….. which has really messed it up, and the killing of scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi last January.
The Public Health Ministry of Thailand has seized large stores of illicit pharmaceuticals as part of an ongoing crackdown on illegal abortion clinics. Earlier in November, 2002 aborted babies were found stored at a Buddhist temple in Bangkok.
Legal abortion in Thailand is limited mainly to cases of rape or incest, fetal abnormality, or ‘danger to the mother’s life’.
The health ministry’s action against illegal abortion clinics uncovered large stocks of MTpill (mifepristone) cytolog (misopristil), antibiotics and drugs for impotence, at one of four illicit drug producers said to be located in Bangkok.
Article on the aftermath at the Buddhist temple (Wat Phai Ngern Chotanaram), containing much political double talk, is worth a read.
Acrux, a Melbourne, Australia drug company is bringing Axiron, a new topical testosterone product to market in the U.S., to treat male hypgonadism (testosterone insufficiency).
Axiron is designed to be rubbed into the armpits, where absorption is believed to be most efficient, barring hair and other obstructions, such as deoderant ;-).
This product will compete with Androgel and Testim, which already occupy niches the U.S. prescription market. The backs of the shoulders or upper arms are the preferred sites of application for these products. Directions specify areas which are covered by a short sleeve shirt.
Acrux is not yet marketing this product in Australia, but claims their new testosterone lotion dries faster and is less tacky and sticky.
This current move is more about piracy, but is also to show us how the government can censor, and quell dissent a bit.
Unfortunately the government has also seized domains which aren’t actually doing any piracy. This kind of incompetence is par for the course.
The best part of the above linked articles is down in the comments, where you will learn to hold onto IP address of the sites you like the most and continue to use them after the govt has grabbed the domain name, and the various ways this can be done. Also there are alternative domain name servers and other web mechanisms such as Netsukuku, Osiris Serverless Portal, Tor hidden services.
Pharmer is no expert, but remains convinced that this mode of communication will not be easy for governments to control.
And remember these TSA people don’t change gloves.
This woman failed the backscatter scan, due to her feminine hygiene product, and got the groping.
Portion of the Complainants email:
“These new scans are so horrible that if you are wearing something unusual (like a piece of cloth on your panties) then you will be subjected to a search where a woman repeatedly has to check your “groin” while another woman watches on (two in my case – they were training in a new girl – awesome).
So please, please, tell the ladies not to wear their liners at the airport (I didn’t even have an insert in). I’m a strong, confident woman; I’m an Army vet (which is why those camo liners crack me up), I work full-time and go to graduate school full-time, I have a wonderful husband, and I don’t take any nonsense from anyone. I don’t dramatize, and I don’t exaggerate. I’m trying to give you a sense of who I am so you won’t think that this is a plea for attention, or a jumping on the bandwagon about the recent TSA proposed boycott.
I just don’t want another woman to have to go through the “patting down” because she didn’t know that her glad-rag would be a matter of national security.”
The Muslims will be exempted from this, because their religion is respected by the administration.
Gonorrhea cases are up 69 % from 2008 to 2009 according to data reported to the CDC. Some attribute it to increased reporting.
Chlamydia often accompanies gonorrhea and frequently the choice is made to treat both ‘bugs’ if one is diagnosed.
More information comes from comments appended to the McClatchy artircle linked at the top.
“Redpoll”, reported at 13:50 11/26, from his Alaskan village about the population most affected by the STD outbreak:
NJ Democrat Rep., Steve Rothman fired his chief of staff, Robert Decheine after the latter was arrested for soliciting to have sex with an underage girl.
Decheine served as a senior advisor to the Obama campaign in 2008, and previously as chief of staff to MN democrat Rep., Bill Luther.
A police sting using undercover officers snagged Decheine, and 10 others in a sting using website ads, phone and text messages.
This might be a plus on the aide’s resume if he applies for a job with the TSA.
Appended to the above linked story are some priceless comments.
Z Street, a Zionist group claims that the IRS is screening non profit status applicants for views favoring Israel.
IRS agent Tracy Dornette apparently questioned this group in writing:
“Does your organization support the existence if Israel? …. Describe your organization’s religious belief system towards the land of Israel.”
This document came to light in a lawsuit filed by Z Street this past summer.
From the Politico:
Z Street claims it was told that the IRS is “carefully scrutinizing organizations that are in any way connected with Israel” and “a special unit” is determining whether it’s activities “contradict the Administration’s public policies”.
OK, line up, pro-life groups………. you’re next.
TSA inspections are possibly designed to give people a preference or a longing for the scanners, which are more impersonal, and feel less invasive.
It’s appears to be possible to offend the TSA’s trained gropers if a person’s personal hygiene is sub standard, or if their body size is larger and there are additional crevices to be searched.
Perhaps adding some things for these government workers to find as they search would be fun. Make it a treasure hunt. Remember the old haunted houses with peeled grapes used to simulate eyeballs, and spaghetti prepared to simulate brains? Imagine the TSA agent reaching into your pants, and pulling out a special deposit of tripe, purchased from the local Walmart grocery. Menudo!
Be creative….. and give them a day to remember. A little Saran wrap against your skin would be a good idea to isolate whatever treasures you might be hiding. It might also slightly impede the transmission of unwanted organisms carried by the passenger in front of you. The gate rapists are not washing and changing gloves between searches as they should.
The article linked at the top, of course from foreign press, is a treasure trove of information.
Matt Kernan describes how he entered the U.S. from Paris without a body scan or pat down at the destination, merely by politely resisting the attempts by security to do so. After wearing down the TSA workers, their supervisors and the police, he was finally escorted out of the sterile area by a circuitous route, and allowed to proceed on his way.
Feminazi Gloria Allred, attorney for lost leftist causes, liked her TSA pat down. She admits to a long period of neglect in the physical love department, and enjoyed the substitute.
Pope Benedict made a statement about what exists in reality….. speaking about the use of a condom to reduce the instances of a male prostitute killing other people with HIV, while still acknowledging the fact that condoms are no solution to that global problem.
Most of the other headlines regarding this statement are much more distorting than the Yahoo news.
TSA’s next frontier is the cavity search. We need to be safe from the anal dwelling bombs.
As people become accustomed to “love pats” at the airport, the TSA employees will become bored, and feel a need to explore further.
Surely Janet Napolitano remembers that NASTY old Eddy Murphy song from the 80′s………
and you KNOW she wants to go there. As you can see, asking people to remove their prosthetics, and that includes you breast cancer survivors, is not a problem for Janet and her minions. People living with ostomies are also targets for the TSA gropers.
Janet’s theme song (warning, it’s sicko)
Since 1957 the FDA has been allowing people to turn themselves yellow, (from liver toxicity) in order to take enough Darvocet (propoxyphene and acetaminophen) to achieve pain relief.
Propoxyphene is the mild narcotic analgesic, 100mg of which is USUALLY accompanied by 650mg of acetaminophen. People wanting a little buzz could quickly ruin their liver, by means of acetaminophen overdose. Frequently physicians were writing orders for Darvocet which could bring a patient to toxic acetaminophen levels, if used at the maximum allowable frequency.
FDA has decided that propoxyphene has sufficient deleterious effect on the electrical activity and rhythm of the heart, at therapeutic doses, that it ought to be taken off the market, and that 90 day supply you got from the mail order should be tossed out immediately. Darvon and Darvocet manufacturer, Xanodyne Pharmaceuticals of Newport, KY, has voluntarily withdrawn the drug from the market.
Specifically, prolonged PR and QT intervals, and widening of the QRS complex are blamed on propoxyphene at therapeutic doses. A great number of other drugs have similar effects, but the issue is whether the mild pain relief from propoxyphene is worth the trouble. After 53 years or so of aftermarket testing, Dr. Janet Woodcock and the FDA say no.
Pharmer thinks this is bogus.
Still, such a couple ought to do any offspring a favor and choose adoption.
In contrast to the convicted Charlie Rangel, Waters is planning a vigorous legal defense, using attorneys specialized in ethics matters.
The democrat congresswoman says that her ethics trial is suspended because the case is weak.
Pharmer thinks that Waters “knows where the bodies are buried”.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) of Missouri says: I’m wildly excited that I can walk through a machine instead of getting my dose of love pats.”
Everyone has a different idea of love ;-) , and their own personal physical preferences.
Oregon State Mental Hospital in Salem will be getting a major makeover, with most of the building being replaced by a new facility.
Better facilities, more outdoor space, better meals and more treatment is forecast for the patients, most of whom are involuntarily committed to the hospital.
Ken Kesey’s 1962 story was based on his experiences at a VA facility in California, but was filmed at the Oregon State hospital.
State inspections revealed the Salem facility to have quite a few skeletons in its own closet, including unsanitary facilities, troubles with patients dying of pneumonia, and thousands of cremated corpses from the past century stored in copper canisters on site.
From the leftist position of the New York Times, choosing Archbishop Dolan as president of the USCCB is a conservative move.
However, Archbishop Dolan does not appear to be an actual conservative.
A conservative would recognize that Obamacare would destroy the goose that laid the golden egg, and that has heavily funded the charitable outreach of the Catholic church.
No mention is made of the obvious fact that Obamacare will make our elderly and disabled citizens SHOVEL READY.
Medicare denies more claims for treatment than any private insurer. The idea that Obamacare will expand coverage while taking on more patients, wasting more money in administration, and driving out health care providers, is a total joke.
Archbishop Dolan is quoted by NYT:
“We should have been doing cartwheels” when the health care bill passed, he said, because the bishops had long supported expanding coverage. But he said the bishops could not endorse the legislation because they concluded there were “unborn babies that were in danger.”
If that quote is accurate, it would mean that he’s Lost in the Weeds on this issue.
However, the Hill assures us, it is OK for congressmen to steal the money of taxpayers, and Rangel is not expected to lose his job.
Remember when the lefties screamed about Palin’s use of the word Death panels, to describe the government choosing who and who would not get medical treatment?
Well, they forgot about that, and here you see the esteemed New York Times operative, Paul Krugman acknowledging Sarah Palin’s pinpoint accuracy.
KRUGMAN: They should have said, “Okay, look, Medicare is going to have to decide what it’s going to pay for. And at least for starters, it’s going to have to decide which medical procedures are not effective at all and should not be paid for at all.” In other words, it should have endorsed the panel that was part of the health care reform. If the commission isn’t even brave enough to take on the death panels people, then it’s doing no good at all. ……………..
No. Some years down the pike we’re gonna get the real solution, which is gonna be a combination of death panels and sales taxes. It’s going to be that we’re actually gonna take Medicare under control and we’re gonna have to get some additional revenue, probably from a VAT.
