The "News"

I am not advocating for or against any political party in this particular post, it is important to every citizen of America.

Our rights, and our futures, depend upon whether or not we get the "straight" news about what is going on. If we get our news from a media lies to us, or omits critical information, then we are not informed. And if we are not informed, our freedoms, rights and the future of our children dissipate.

So it is critical we get our news from a source that provides ALL the news.

To that end, ask yourself if your media reported on the news that Van Johnson, one of the administration's "czars", was a criminal and self-proclaimed communist. And did they report on it BEFORE or AFTER he was forced to resign? And ask yourself if your source reported on the ACORN videos long before, or after, they became public and Congress acted to defund them. Or have they bothered to tell you that over 30 ACORN employees have been convicted of voter fraud and voter registration fraud, among other things? Or that one of the ACORN founders embezzled over a million taxpayer dollars from ACORN, and ACORN never pressed charges? And did your source tell you about the part of the Baucus health care bill that says you will go to jail if you do not buy insurance? Or that all health care proposals include language that will cut Medicare funding by 500 billion dollars? And did your source point out the fraud in the Stimulus Bill? Or all the pork that was in it?

All of those important stories turned out to be 100% factual. But only one news source reported them. Why? Because they know that it is easier to lead, and take advantage of people who are ill-informed and ignorant of what is going on.

As you can see, getting ALL the facts is important if we are to make informed choices in our own lives. And most of the media are not giving us those facts until they are forced to by public uproar. But where is that uproar coming from if most media are hiding the truth from you?

I watch the news from many sources, to make sure I have all the facts, and not just the cherry-picked parts that an agenda-driven media presents. And in every case - EVERY case - the only media that gave me all the news was Fox. Think what you like about Fox, but the fact remains that they were on the ACORN, Van Johnson, Stimulus Fraud and the Baucus health care jail long before any other media. And the fact remains that, to this day, many in the media STILL have not reported on these things, or have sharply minimalized the stories. And viewership of FOX now exceeds the viewership of ALL other news media combined. Why? Maybe it is BECAUSE more and more folks from both sides are discovering that only Fox gives you all the news.

Two separate polls (Zogby was one) last election day asked voters certain questions about politics - simple questions that everyone should have known the answers to. As it turned out, the best informed voters were those who claimed to get their news from either FOX, or talk radio, or both. Those individuals got over 80% of the answers correct, on average, while those who got their news from the New York Times, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN only got an average of 22% correct.

I hate pain. But it is pain that tells me when something is wrong, and makes me seek medical attention so I can fix what is wrong. Hate Fox News if you wish. But if you want to be INFORMED, you should be watching it, regardless of your party affiliation, and in spite of your personal feelings. Because being informed is not just a luxury - in today's world, it is essential.

And well-informed people are better armed to win debates, and make good choices. Choose to be well-informed, even if it hurts!

Health Care Jail

Did you know that the Health Care plan proposed by Sen. Baucus has a section that states if you do not buy health insurance you will be guilty of a misdemeanor and punished with either a $25,000 fine OR A YEAR IN JAIL?

Can you believe these people? Not only do they want to violate your Constitutional Rights by FORCING you to spend your money on something you may not want or need, but they want to put you in prison if you do not comply with their Gestapo tactics.

Think about this - if for some reason you lose your insurance, you would be forced to spend $3800 to enter the "government" option, or go to jail. Hell, for most folks, if they do not have insurance it is because they cannot afford it. So the Democrats want to put you behind bars for being broke.

Don't think so? Think again. Baucus has already admitted that it exists in the bill. Now think about this - let's say the government says if you earn more than $48,000 a year, you can "afford" the $3800/year for their insurance. Yet, for all they know, your bills and expenses come to $48,000 a year. So how will you pay $3800 for insurance without going bankrupt and losing everything? In other words, it will not matter how much debt you already have - if you EARN a certain amount, the government says you can afford it - even if you cannot. So, you go to JAIL!

In America! With each passing day, the Obama Administration is changing America from the land of the free to the land of the enslaved.

Of course, the liberal media refuses to tell folks about this part of the Baucus bill, because they know the folks would revolt, big time. As far as I can tell, the only news source to show this is Fox News. No wonder it beats ALL other news stations combined.

Folks - if you have an ounce of common sense and a modicum of interest in what kind of future our children will have, get on the horn and call your senators and congressmen TODAY. Tell them if they vote for the health care bill, you will vote for their opponent in the next election. This is far too important for anyone to sit on their hands and hope someone else will fight the fight for them.

Should Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) be banned?

Read on, then vote in the poll on the left margin:

Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol.

Unfortunately, the dangers of DHMO have increased as world population has increased, a fact that the raw numbers and careful research both bear out. Now more than ever, it is important to be aware of just what the dangers of Dihydrogen Monoxide are and how we can all reduce the risks faced by ourselves and our families.

What are some of the dangers associated with DHMO?

Each year, Dihydrogen Monoxide is a known causative component in many thousands of deaths and is a major contributor to millions upon millions of dollars in damage to property and the environment. Some of the known perils of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

  • Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
  • Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
  • Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
  • DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
  • Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
  • Contributes to soil erosion.
  • Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
  • Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
  • Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
  • Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
  • Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
  • Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
  • Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect

Despite the known dangers of DHMO, it continues to be used daily by industry, government, and even in private homes across the U.S. and worldwide. Some of the well-known uses of Dihydrogen Monoxide are:

  • as an industrial solvent and coolant,
    in nuclear power plants,
  • by the U.S. Navy in the propulsion systems of some older vessels,
  • by elite athletes to improve performance,
    in biological and chemical weapons manufacture,
  • in the development of genetically engineered crops and animals,
  • as a spray-on fire suppressant and retardant,
  • in so-called "family planning" or "reproductive health" clinics,
  • as a major ingredient in many home-brewed bombs,
    in cult rituals,
  • by the Church of Scientology on their members and their members' families (although surprisingly, many members recently have contacted DHMO.org to vehemently deny such use),
  • by both the KKK and the NAACP during rallies and marches,
  • historically, in Hitler's death camps in Nazi Germany, and in prisons in Turkey, Serbia, Croatia, Libya, Iraq and Iran,
  • in World War II prison camps in Japan, and in prisons in China, for various forms of torture,
  • during many recent religious and ethnic wars in the Middle East,
  • by many terrorist organizations including al Quaeda,
  • in day care centers, purportedly for sanitary purposes,
  • in animal research laboratories, and
  • in pesticide production and distribution.

What you may find surprising are some of the products and places where DHMO is used, but which for one reason or another, are not normally made part of public presentations on the dangers to the lives of our family members and friends. Among these startling uses are:

  • as an additive to food products, including jarred baby food and baby formula, and even in many soups, carbonated beverages and supposedly "all-natural" fruit juices
  • in cough medicines and other liquid pharmaceuticals,
  • in spray-on oven cleaners,
  • in shampoos, shaving creams, deodorants and numerous other bathroom products,
  • in bathtub bubble products marketed to children,
    as a preservative in grocery store fresh produce sections,
  • in the production of beer by all the major beer distributors,
  • in the coffee available at major coffee houses in the US and abroad

One of the most surprising facts recently revealed about Dihydrogen Monoxide contamination is in its use as a food and vegetable "decontaminant." Studies have shown that even after careful washing, food and produce that has been contaminated by DHMO remains tainted by DHMO.

A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of violence in our country's schools, including infamous shootings in high schools in Denver and Arkansas, Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved.

Knowing these statistics and facts, do you think DHMO should be banned? Please cast your vote.
