Viagra – It’s For the Children!

Wednesday, July 28, 2010 11:48 14 Comments

The story on FOX was prefaced with the remark, “but it’s for the children,” of course. And the media bobbleheads really believe it. And I suppose most Americans believe all of this nonsense they are fed on a daily basis from the Pharmaceutical-Government-Corporatist complex that seeks to keep you a prisoner of its rent-seeking machinations. This story on perthnow (via [...]

Big Pharma’s Lifetime Dependents

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 7:44 7 Comments

More amazing stories in the mainstream news about the pharmaceutical-medical establishment’s favorite demon: cholesterol. The LA Times reports that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children be screened for “high” cholesterol. Of course, “high” has come to mean a number that is deemed perilous without looking at the breakdown of that number, which is [...]

My new article is up at the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute: “Stuff Does Not Equal Wealth.” This is a revamped version of an older piece I wrote a few years ago. It is essentially a teaching tool with the audience being high school and college women.

Judge Orders Sheriff to Take a Class on the Constitution

Saturday, July 10, 2010 13:29 7 Comments

I’m not a Constitutionalist, but this is a good Saturday funny: somewhere in Iowa, a guy who formerly had a concealed weapons permit and re-applied to get one again, was denied by the county Sheriff who didn’t like his reputation for such dastardly crimes as “protesting, passing out leaflets and writing letters to the editor” [...]

Programmed By the Idiot Box

Saturday, July 10, 2010 13:11 15 Comments

Alex Jones is right when he says “We are a wicked, decadent, degenerate society.” Not we, however, but they. He brings up my pet peeve – the daily obsession with LeBron James. I am so sick of this constant obsession with LeBron James, a giant freak of nature who gets on his tippy toes to [...]

What Happens When the Vegas Bubble Bursts?

Certainly, the hotels and casinos go away, and the buffet lines get shorter, but also this: The ignoble race to the bottom of the jobs market has officially bypassed the car-making mecca of Michigan and made its way to Nevada. The Silver State, once the country’s fastest-growing job market, has become the nation’s worst performer. [...]

Sanitization or Stupidization?

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 22:35 15 Comments

Butler Shaffer’s post on the blog,”On Sanitizing America,” was very timely. The sterilization machinations are everywhere. Butler mentioned the sanitizer station at the grocery store. Well, most corporate environments have them, too. Where I work, there is a sanitization station (that’s a nice jingle, eh?) at every elevator bank on every floor – all [...]

Prince Declares the Internet “Over”

Tuesday, July 6, 2010 23:24 8 Comments

I bet his publicists/managers are lying awake at night over this one. “The Internet is completely over,” Prince told the Mirror. “I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.” He [...]

Food for Thought

The mainstream media (!) is persisting in its campaign against lowfat while advocating for real food and good fat. Believe it! From an interview with Michael Pollan in the Guardian: Michael Pollan, tall, fit, not quite skinny but very definitely lean, is holding a fruit yoghurt in one hand and a bottle of Coca-Cola in [...]
