Celebrity Lawyer Gloria Allred and her Batboy  Fight Homophobia.

Remember Gloria Allred?  She’s the whacked out Lawyer who appreciated her TSA pat down. It was the most fun she’d had in years.

We know something’s wrong with Gloria, but there’s also something wrong with this San Francisco dad going all out to make sure his  little daughters never forget  the gross thing  ( Braves’  pitching coach misbehaving at a baseball game)  about which he has lodged his legal complaint.    A  Jerry Springer award is always conferred for something  nastaaay, so be forewarned if you click on the above link, and follow to the videos.

Your Tax Dollars At Waste, Stinging Amish Farmer

Feds sting Amish farmer selling raw milk locally – Washington Times.

One thing this article is missing is the taxpayer cost of the FDA sting on Dan Allgyer, an Amish farmer who sold unpasteurized milk to customers specifically wanting that product.

The FDA is convinced that raw milk has no benefits, that can’t be obtained from the pasteurized products but customers  believe otherwise.

It’s obvious that drinking unpasteurized milk with its collection of native flora is a different deal than drinking the commercial product the bacteria of  which have been killed.   People also eat yogurt to obtain benefits from the microbial growth within.

Some people don’t mind playing a bit of roulette with their pro-biotics, and the FDA, which obviously doesn’t know ‘bugs’, needs to find something more useful to do.

Blagojevich Rule Challenged | Daily News | NCRegister.com

Blagojevich Rule Challenged | Daily News | NCRegister.com.

In Sangamon County, Circuit Court Judge John Belz ruled that Illinois pharmacists can’t be forced to dispense the morning after pills against their own ethical standards and religious beliefs.

Opponents promise to immediately challenge this ruling, but Atty. Francis J. Manion,  ACLJ senior counsel, who represented the conscientiously objecting pharmacists notes that the court ruling addresses specific arguments for which the Illinois state attorneys were not able to provide evidence.   For example,  they were not able to argue that a single woman had been prevented from obtaining her morning after pills by a pharmacist who would not personally provide them.  For that reason, an appeal on their part will likely be a waste of Illinois’  negative financial resources.

The Illinois edict, which was overturned in the circuit court, had basically been designed  by Planned Parenthood, and this is the case for many other unconstitutional state laws opposing the human rights of health care professionals.

The article linked addresses  the battle over   conscience rights in numerous other states, including Wisconsin, Washington, where the  pharmacists  are in trouble, and in several more states which have recently supported pharmacists of conscience.

Scroll down in this blog to see the prescriber information for  Plan B, which clearly contradicts  the false premise of the Wisconsin regulations,  forcing pharmacists to dispense Plan B (as well as all other hormonal birth control).    Expect a new  legal battle to erupt in that state as the pharmacy owners are forced to apply the legislation and fire conscientiously objecting pharmacists.  Wisconsin’s legislation targeting the pharmacists was hidden in budget bills by the democrat legislature, and passed without much notice.  The newer state government might find cost containment benefits in rescinding the legislation.

The legal battle  is  ongoing in the state of Washington,  which the pro-abortion Governor Gregoire and her Board of Pharmacy  might drive all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.   It might be the crowning achievement of their careers.

Report to UN: Gaddafi troops (are Impotent and) use Viagra to Accomplish Rape

U.S. says Gaddafi troops raping, issued Viagra: envoys – Yahoo! News

Yes,  this was reported by the U.S. Envoy to the United Nations  Security council,  that rape is being used as a war weapon in Libya, and that Viagra has been issued to some of the Qaddafi’s troops to this end. The  natural  conclusion is up in the headline.

This of course would constitute a war crime, if carried out by regimes outside of the middle eastern sphere.

From the San Francisco Chronicle: Obamastyle “transparency”

Obama Administration punishes reporter for using multimedia : Bronstein at Large.
“The hip, transparent and social media-loving Obama administration is showing its analog roots. And maybe even some hypocrisy highlights.”

Phil Bronstein knows hair….. yes he does.

Also he’s grousing at Obama for cutting off a presidential pool reporter, Carla Marinucci, because she used her little video cam  to catch some protest action during one if his fundraisers in San Francisco.

Expect for Carla to be reinstated back in into the press fold now that this scoop has gotten out all over the internet, and the legendary transparency is widely known not to exist.

Total Recall: Hypnotist Winfrey Draws Out Earliest Obama Memories

Obama to Winfrey: ‘I was there … I knew I had been born’ – Chicago Sun-Times.

Obama personally remembered  having been born in Hawaii.  “Of course”, Oprah, who drew out that earliest “memory” says….

Obama joked that he remembered being born in Hawaii.

“Can I just say? I was there, so I knew … that … I knew I had been born. I remembered it.’’

As the audience laughed, Winfrey said, “Of course you did.

Obama made the same kind of joke on April 19,  when he said “We can’t keep on spending more than we take in, it’s going to cause serious damage to the economy.”

Guttmacher Spokesperson: Use of Morning After Pill increasing but “there’s room for improvement”

More U.S. women using “morning-after” pill: study – Yahoo! News.

The above article purports a single mechanism of Plan B, levonorgestrel, to operate by stopping ovulation.  It is known that progestin-only (a class of hormone analogs)  pills perform this job very  poorly, or not at all if taken in the latter third of the fertile period of a human female.   The media claim that this is their only operative mechanism of action would hinge upon extremely poor performance,  a failure rate of  approximately 40 percent per use.

From the Prescribing information of Plan B One-Step:

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY
12.1 Mechanism of Action
Emergency contraceptive pills are not effective if a woman is already pregnant. Plan B One-Step is believed to act as an emergency contraceptive principally by preventing ovulation or fertilization (by altering tubal transport of sperm and/or ova). In addition, it may inhibit implantation (by altering the endometrium). It is not effective once the process of implantation has begun.

Note that it contradicts the above linked article by mentioning the fact that levonorgestrel affects the endometrium and may act to inhibit implantation.  This stops the life of a human embryo at the blastocyst stage of development, and is one of the bases for controversy concerning dispensing and use of this form of birth control.  Unmentioned in the package insert is that effect on tubal transport also influences the transport of the very early embryo prior to implantation. 

Here’s the quote of the year concerning Plan B:

“It has more than doubled since the last time the data were collected,” said Megan L. Kavanaugh, a senior research associate at the Guttmacher Institute in New York who worked on the study.

However, she said in an interview, “its use still seems relatively low, given that it’s easy to access. So there’s room for improvement.”

Somehow, in the fevered brain of Ms. Kavanaugh  it represents an improvement to fail in the more reliable forms of preventing pregnancy, and require the use of the LEAST reliable modality, the morning after pill, tossed over the counter by the local pharmacist, who could be  censured for attempting to ascertain  clinically appropriate application of the drug.   Kavanaugh credits the media, and not health care professionals, for stimulating the increase in this dependency.  (A tiny silver lining in this cloud.)

The above article suggests that the number of women who require afterthought birth control is on the rise, since the levonorgestrel form of morning after pill has been given over the counter status, and that this is a positive development.   It is one more reason that women should not obtain medical information and advice from the mainstream media.

The prescriber info of Plan B One-Step admits to a failure rate of  16 percent, per use  (which corroborates  the multiple mechanisms of action), and admits to the cumulative problem of failure should a woman rely on the morning after pill  as her main form of birth control.

How does the Guttmacher institute spell “improvement”??  Birth control failure.   It sells abortion.

Retraction Watch: Eminent Surgeon Censored and Punished for Editorializing on the Salutary Effects of Semen

Forget chocolate on Valentine’s Day, try semen, says Surgery News editor. Retraction, resignation follow « Retraction Watch.

You might want to  link to Retraction watch itself, if you have an interest in freedom of speech, scientific progress, and the issue of political correctness.

Dr. Lazar Greenfield, an eminent surgeon and inventor has been drummed out of his position as Editor in Chief of the ACS (American College of Surgeons)  for having too much fun while writing an editorial.

He noted a study concluding that women who use condoms, and abstinent women suffer more depression than women who do not use condoms during sex, and related it to the salutary components found in semen, and the efficiency of the vaginal mucosa as an avenue of drug delivery.

His offense was to ruffle the feathers of the feminazis by stating that semen may confer myriad chemical benefits, and to  imply that this is one reason that women really need men.

The ACS, afflicted by overdoses of estrogen, and without a sense of the hormone’s  utility,  has ‘temporarily’  removed the entire issue containing Greenfield’s editorial from its website.

Pharmer pasted her own comment to the news article at Retraction Watch:

Both sex and abstinence are very good, in their respective ‘seasons’.  It’s likely that depression during abstinence is  more frequently  from a loss of hope in finding a worthwhile partner, and exacerbated by a lack of  good memories to fall back on.

Theories that the offended censors are dwelling in a prolonged stage of hopelessness are not without basis.

Greenfield’s take on the evidence for physiological bases of sex attraction is hilarious, and should not have been removed, nor should he have been otherwise punished.

The humorless lefties who hate the existence of  sexual dimorphism  should not be permitted to rule over the rest of us, who appreciate it.

Pharmer would have been expecting  comparative clinical trials  of chocolate by oral delivery vs. vaginal instillation of semen  (normal  sex)  for antidepressant efficacy,  had the PC police not clamped down with their suppression of scientific inquiry.
