Millions could go off blood pressure meds – Yahoo News.
New ‘guidelines’ for treatment of hypertension has pushed blood pressure targets to 150/90 rather than 140/90, in adults over age 60. According to an estimate coming out of Duke University, this could cause 25% (6 million) those on blood pressure drugs to stop taking their meds.
Pharmer sees this as part of the Obamacare cost cutting pattern. Note that the standards of “need” for mammography, colonoscopy, and various other health measures have recently been downgraded.
One wonders if the pharmaceutical and medical supply companies were forewarned that many of their products and services would no longer be needed with the roll out of Obamacare and the upcoming single-payer plan.
Graphic ‘Sex Box’ for Swiss Kindergartners has Genitalia to Teach Kids that Sex is Pleasurable | TheBlaze.com.
Two of the possible reasons that schools in Switzerland might have adopted the sex indoctrination program (story linked above) are given below.
1) Swiss lefties have so lost cerebral cortical activity that they believe their offspring have to be taught how to play with themselves.
2) Swiss leftists feel more comfortable having sex with young children, and wish to formally prepare the kids for the interactions in kindergarten.

White House ex-aide: First Lady Michelle Obama has turned East Wing into ‘worst wing’ – NY Daily News.
Reid Cherlin has bailed from his job as an assistant press secretary and is making his bucks by dishing on work life with the Obamas. He repeats what we’ve been hearing for years, that Michelle is not loving the constraints of First Lady-ism, and that this adversely affects those who service her day to day needs in the East wing of the White House.
A Michelle-administration spokesperson has defended her thusly: “From day one, the First Lady ambitiously set out to make a measurable impact on the lives of everyday American families. The First Lady is laser-focused on moving the needle wherever and whenever possible.”
Work has become “moving the needle”.
Dear White House spokes-BOT: please understand just how stupid this sounds to the people in this country who produce things, and perform useful services. Please also understand that the rest of the world is laughing at the community organizers who think that “moving the needle” is a useful occupation.
Vladimir Putin has at least 3 more years of space in which to rebuild the Soviet Union, generated by the brain vacuum in Washington DC.
Matt Bevin, the underdog challenger to Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell , is endorsed by various tea party groups, including Tea Party Patriots. Bevin is a more conservative pro-lifer than most, and therefore could not garner the support of some of the mainstream “pro-life” groups. They might not agree with his idea of cutting medicaid funding for birth control. They might also find his family of 9 kids, four of whom are adopted from Ethiopia, to be over the top.
Andrew Bair, writing in LifeNews, notes that Bevin has support from the Northern Kentucky Right to Life organization, a group too conservative to be on his radar. NKRTL is an uncompromisingly pro-life group which opposes the birth control scam with which the left has successfully held women in thrall. Mitch McConnell does not answer survey questions coming from Northern Kentucky Right to Life.
On the other hand, Tea Party support for Matt Bevins has been due to such things as his insistence upon debt limits, and respect for immigration law. Mitch McConnell has voted many times to increase the government debt ceiling, (thereby funding Obamacare), and has been supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants.
Pro-lifers such as Andrew Bair would do well to ponder if it is OK to vote to increase government debt, (thereby upholding the basis of the anti-life Obamacare), to allow people who broke immigration law to push ahead of immigrants who have shown respect for U.S. laws, and to give these illegals access to health care coverage which has been R E M O V E D from working Americans.
TheTeaparty.net has been promulgating this on its Facebook Page. Be sure to check this group out.
It’s the ultimate in RECYCLING!! Green energy for some UK hospitals comes from incinerating medical waste, part of which is aborted babies.
According to the UK Telegraph, Ten NHS trusts admit to having burned aborted babies along with rubbish, and two trusts have burned the fetal remains in “waste to energy” plants which provide heat for the hospitals.
Some parents are not consulted about the remains after a miscarriage, and these are burned as waste or for heat, as well as those babies who are aborted. Moms are sometimes told that the babies have been cremated. Between 2011 and 2013, the remains of 1101 unborn babies were cremated in the Ipswich Hospital “waste to energy plant” for example. This facility is operated by a private contractor, and a spokesperson of the Ipswich hospital is denying that remains from that hospital are incinerated. Their concern is that remains from other hospitals are being burned there.

The “educators” at Virginia Beach City Public Schools present a possibly serious hazard to children with whom they come in contact. Pharmer bestows on the administrators of Bayside Middle School, the Brown Pile, Stupid Educator Award for expelling sixth grader, Adrionna Harris. Why? Because she told them that she took a razor blade away from a fellow student who was CUTTING himself with it, and she immediately threw it away.
Yep, there is zero tolerance for handling a razor blade long enough to pitch it, whether saving another person from harm or not.
Fortunately Adrionna has not been made stupid, by her “educators” even though they punished her for acting judiciously to save another student from himself. She says that she would do the same thing again, despite the punishment. Hopefully she will continue to resist the efforts of her school to change her into a mindless automaton. Her family wants to address the problems with the zero tolerance policy so that such bad judgment on the part of administrators does not adversely affect other students who choose to do the right thing.
Massive negative attention from the public and a television station has finally caused the school administration to rescind the expulsion. There are continuing efforts to make sure that any negativity associated with this incident is expunged from Adrionna’s record.
Parents need to be alert to the idiocy fostered at so many of the schools, and work to undo the damage inflicted by the current crop of air heads who propagate the mindless, “zero tolerance” policies.
Samuel Adams Brewers Withdraw from St. Patrick’s Day Parade over Gays.
The organizers of the South Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade have opted not to allow members of Mass Equality, a gay advocacy group to display their sexual orientation on signs. For this reason, Samuel Adams Brewers is withdrawing from the parade.
Pharmer is withdrawing from the purchase of Samuel Adams beer.
There is no reason that groups of people should need to announce what kind of sex they like, while marching in a St. Patrick’s Day parade. That is not the purpose of the parade, which originated as an Irish Catholic cultural and religious event.
Update: Adding Guinness and Heineken to the list of beers to avoid.
It appears to be very important to three Brewing corporations that children have constant exposure to information regarding sex preferences. It appears that Samuel Adams, Guinness and Heineken require every event that they sponsor to have signage touting gay sexual orientation.
IT appears that Branford High School principal, Lee Panagoulias has Fetophobia, an irrational fear of human developmental biology. That’s what seems to have caused his refusal to permit pro-life students to display life sized models of human fetuses during the school’s lunch hour. (An alternate diagnostic theory is PASD, post abortive stress disorder.) Setting up the fetus models to be displayed during lunch hour has been deemed too controversial a topic to be discussed at a public school. Read more below.
