No Surprise Department: An Abortion Supporting Rapist

Remember pro-life activist Everett Stadig, who was thrown from his bike by a violent abortion supporter, in Denver, CO, and was hospitalized with a broken hip?
Over at Jill Stanek’s is the rest of the story..
A witness took down the license plate number of Stadig’s  attacker as he drove away, and turned it into the police.
The police apparently did

about this information until Everett Stadig’s lawyers pressured them into action.
They found the (alleged) attacker, William Costello, and in compliance with a state law, took his DNA after the arrest.
Guess who is linked to the unsolved rapes of an underage girl and two women, in 2008, 2010 and 2011.
Whaddaya know! An abortion supporting RAPIST!

Colorado GOP says Santorum won

Colorado Republican Party.

It’s so pretty, early this Weds AM. The map of Colorado has turned all red, meaning that all the precincts have reported. And the numbers on the side say Santorum, 40.24% and Romney 34.9 % and Gingrich 12.81%.

Expect the Missouri results, the Minnesota results and the Colorado results to be counted as insignificant by the media which needs Romney to go up against Obama and lose.

Bob McCarty: Another Farm Raid Hits Rabbit Expert Debe Bell

Denver Media Outlets Fail to Cover Multitude of Juicy Stories Behind Recent Rabbit Farm Raid – Big Journalism.

After a warrant-less entry and search, cops removed the rabbits from Debi Bell’s farm and placed them in inappropriate  conditions of storage at the Jefferson County fairgrounds. (The search warrant was produced after the search, and decision to remove the rabbits was made.)  Some of the rabbits belonged to 4-H kids who were raising them to be shown at the fairs.

This bust by the Jefferson County Sheriff in Colorado has caused farmers to be afraid to show small animals at the Colorado State Fair.

They’re afraid that their farms will be busted too, just like that of  Debi Bell.  This is even after the  State fair officials have  extended the deadline of entry and agreed not to display the names of rabbit owners in order to protect them from the nuts who have caused the arrest of Debi Bell.

Bloggers, please hit the links above and pass this story on.  Apparently the local press in Colorado needs to be goaded into covering the facts of this story.

You might  feel moved to contact the Jefferson County, Colorado Sheriff’s office to inquire about the case.  Here’s the Animal Control Office Contact info.

The House Rabbit Society is apparently associated with this raid and may need your attention also.  Here’s the Colorado chapter link. Maybe they need advice on how to tend to animals which their volunteers  help to remove from farms.

Foothills Animal Shelter is adopting out (SELLING) Debe’s bunnies on Weds Aug 17.

You can contact them too !

Recycling Gone Wild – Flu vaccine syringes!

Children told to be tested for HIV after flu vaccines reused |

People have caught the ‘green bug’ — an infection with  enthusiasm for recycling.  This has extended into health care environments where some inappropriate recycling can be observed.

For example certain plastics and containers are recycled, or inappropriately transferred from patient  rooms to be reused in other patient rooms.   This is a danger for the spread of infection, and the rampant spread of  staph and clostridium infections may be resulting from this and other bad practices. Some health care employees cannot be dissuaded from these practices.

Above linked is a news story about a pediatric clinic in Colorado, (Med Peds Clinic of Fort Collins) where some enterprising employee decided to recycle half used   syringe doses of flu vaccine.

Those syringes (to a normal health care worker) are single use items.  Even if it had been appropriate to use half of the dose, the remainder should have been tossed out  in the biohazardous waste.

Instead the  medical assistant changed the needles on the syringe and recycled.

So…….  a lot of kids have apparently received half flu doses, and may have been exposed to infection from other patients.   There is a practice  of pulling back a bit  on the syringe, when injecting a vaccine, to make sure it’s not being shot directly into a blood vessel.

Dr Mark S. Simmons of the clinic stated :  “we are a little dismayed that one of our former medical assistants did not follow procedures when handling this” Recommendations from the clinic are that patients who received the vaccines be tested for  HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C, (etc.)   There is not a mention of who would cover this expense.

Some things shouldn’t be recycled.
