Arsenic in Rice
The FDA recently tested 1,300 samples of rice and rice products and found a deadly carcinogen. But somehow they concluded that it was okay to continue eating it. Something isn’t adding up.
Their official statement on the findings is that the levels of this poison are so low they don’t present a health danger. “All the data suggest levels that are not high enough to give us cause for concern for immediate or near-term effects,” said FDA commissioner Margaret Hamburg.1
My good friend Fredo will be on TV Monday, Oct. 7th. 7:00 pm on wnwo-24 , at the debate between Taco Bell and Tom Collins. Fredo will be asking the candidates questions that supposedly his listeners sent in. (if this were true the debate would be over in ten minutes).
Hopefully Fredo will get a haircut , put on a suit and not be as lethargic as he was for his appearance on Nancy Grace when he was playing Haroldo. Good luck Fredo!
Does Jon know that thou shall not lie is one of the 10 commandments? Without further adieu:
As of 11 p.m., Wednesday, October 2, I still haven't been able to get far enough into the Healthcare.gov website to check out my options if I am forced to go on Obamacare. At least yesterday I got to the step where I entered my personal information, but not even that far today.
Just moments ago I tried and received a message suggesting, "You might have better success during off-peak hours, like later at night or early in the morning." Apparently 11 at night isn't late enough.
... while still collecting his presidential paycheck. What thousand different things are wrong with this picture?
I emailed Senator Sherrod Brown to ask him why he continues to support Congressional members and their staffs getting subsidies for health care that us "average" folks don't get. How arrogant it is of these politicians to treat themselves like royalty when, in fact, we are their employers.
I'm realistic enough to know I will get some standardized political-speak response, but it just irritates me that they thumb their noses at us. It really should be a non-partisan issue; Americans of all political persuasions should be outraged by this.
Anyway, I went to Brown's website and used the email feature. When I submitted my message a screen came up that said due to the shutdown of the government Senator Brown would not be able to respond to my message. What?!
One of weekly radio shows with Robert Scott Bell, “Outside the Box Wednesday,” happened to fall on 9/11/13.
I tried to register at the Obamacare HEALTHCARE.GOV website today--and after several attempts where I was told that the site was busy, I finally got through. I filled out the preliminary personal information and created a username and password.
Then I got to the security questions part. I selected the three questions and typed in the answers--making sure they were all different, as I was instructed. I hit the "Submit" button and a screen appeared indicating that two of my security answers were the same--which they weren't; and I was directed back to the beginning of the process to start again! Ughhhhhh! It never did allow me to get to the page where I could view my insurance options.
I checked on the Internet and found other people who experienced the same problem. I can understand the issue of the website being overwhelmed with activity (although it wouldn't have been a problem for most company sites), but how can something like the security question glitch occur WHEN THEY HAD THREE YEARS TO SET IT UP! Not to mention all of the monetary and human resources the government has at its disposal to locate and fix these problems before going live with the site.
This time the left can’t say, “That’s not in the bill!”
It’s in the bill. Health and Human Services is making grants to states and agencies who are willing to perform “evidence-based home visits” connected to ObamaCare. What is the purpose of these visits? The grant guidelines don’t exactly say, but they do spell out in detail who might receive them:
a) Eligible families who reside in communities in need of such services, as identified in the statewide needs assessment required under subsection (b)(1)(A).
b) Low-income eligible families.
I just bought this tablet but unfourtunatly it will not support Flash Player. For the SB techies, do you know of a workable solution?
I am getting tired of vulgar images and usernames - starting today (and it is retroactive), any vulgar image, image with a vulgar term in it, and a username that is vulgar will be blocked. 2 usernames that everyone is familiar with have been blocked until they send me a new username that meets this criteria. If you see an image with vulgarity in it, please flag the post and I will look at it.
This should be interesting:
Senator Baucus (D) (soon to retire) may be acknowledging that BOcare is a trainwreck. But I don't think he, or other liberal Dems anticipated that the populace is in a mood to rebel in new ways against oppression.
Ever wonder how all this Socialism and mandate stuff with Obamacare got started? What ever gave Obama the idea he could force you to buy insurance? What makes him think he has the right to subsidize poor people’s insurance with your tax dollars? What Socialist model did he get all these oppressive ideas from?
See 4 paragraphs down (i.e., 4th paragraph) in this article, quoting Seymour Hersh:
First journalist (to my knowledge) to say this stuff out loud. The New York Times is "carrying water" for BO. Yeah, and the sun is yellow. It's just that you can't get most "reporters" to tell the truth anymore.
I was thinking that recently. A president who wasn't on tv 24/7 haranguing us with communist stupidity. A president who understood the constitutional limits on his office. A president who didn't hate Christians. A president who didn't stick his nose into every area of Americans' lives.
So this is just a part of a recent article by Al Martin [you'll have to google him... too tired to do tutorials today]...
But Martin's observations are precisely why those who understand the goofiness going on in D.C. - ARE NOT cringing in a corner, trembling with fear of a "govt shutdown".
As I watch as C-SPAN covers the Senate votes on cloture (approved) and the House budget (that doesn't include funding for Obamacare), what I see is a bunch of primarily old white guys who are laughing, slapping each other on the backs, and acting like they don't have a care in the world. Actually, they don't. They've exempted themselves from--as a Democrat senator described it--the "train wreck" that is Obamacare. They'll get great pensions, the future possibility to make tons of money as speech makers and/or lobbyists, and have the power that comes with being an elite member of the political class.
It also reminds me that indeed, the poor and minorities are still enslaved--this time they willingly participate by voting for white politicians who treat them as if they are incompetent losers who need their "protection." I guess you get what you ask for.
