    FULL TITLE: Millennials blamed for the falling sales of fabric softener... because 'they don't know what it is for' Millennials are being blamed for falling sales of fabric softener because 'they don't know what it is for.' Sales of the product have been falling for past ten years and Procter & Gamble believes the next generation is to blame. The consumer goods giant, which produces Downy and Gain fabric softener, says it saw sales of its own products decrease by 26 per cent. Shailesh Jejurikar, Procter & Gamble's head of global fabric care, told the Washington Post that most millennials...

    NEW YORK, NY - The cost of caring for the elderly continues to climb. An industry survey says the median bill for a private room in a nursing home is now $91,000 a year. The report says the cost has increased four percent every year over the last five years. The annual "Cost of Care" report comes from the insurance company Gemworth Financial, which sells policies to cover long-term care. It's a growing financial burden for families, governments and insurers. The head of long-term services at the National Council on Aging, Joe Caldwell, says, "Most people don't realize how expensive...

    In November 2014, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) took a bold and unprecedented step for a Muslim nation by designating 85 radical Islamic organizations as terrorist organizations. The UAE’s designation is the most audacious and significant classification of terrorist organizations worldwide, and is superior to the lists developed by the United States, the European Union, the Russian Federation and the United Nations. As to why it is unrivalled, here are a number of reasons: First: The UAE addressed the roots of the problem, in the sense that terrorist ideology paves the way for terrorist acts; hence, the list included organizations...

    Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin on Wednesday dropped his plan to enact a single-payer health care system in his state — a plan that had won praise from liberals but never really got much past the framework stage. “This is not the right time” for enacting single payer, Shumlin said in a statement, citing the big tax increases that would be required to pay for it.

    Presentation Parish Right to Life ^ | 8/23/2014 | Anonymous
    Wanting to be cured of illness is “depraved” —if your life isn’t worth saving. “In a bygone era, doctors thought every life was important. Treatment was aggressive and persistent in intensive care units even when it might be futile.…” A UCLA “academic study” is providing the theoretical basis for denying ordinary care to those deemed “Life Unworthy of Life” (“Lebensunwertes Leben“).That idea, most prominently advanced by the Nazis, has been repackaged as “futile care theory”, disregarding the fact that all persons are in the process of moving towards death from their earliest moments. University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health...

    Veterans reading only headlines, hearing only sound bites, might have a few misconceptions about how Congress and the VA plan to use non-VA health care providers to ensure more timely and convenient access to care. A magical sounding item called a “Veteran’s Choice Card,” for example, won’t be a limitless credit card given qualified veterans to cover whatever health services they receive from whatever physician they use. And veterans not already enrolled in VA health care won’t gain accelerated access to outside care as promised by the legislation — unless they serve in areas of combat operations within five years...

As local hospitals and clinics are gobbled up by giant corporations, the theme is cut costs (by which they mean your care) and raise their profits."

    Happiness is infectious. That's why we want to share the pure joy of Noah, a boy with Down syndrome as he opens a letter of acceptance to college. Noah Van Vooren of Little Chute, Wisconsin now has a chance to attend Edgewood College and it seems he could not be happier. What is most incredible is that when Noah was born he was not expected to walk according to his doctors. Noah reads his own letter, despite an offer from his dad to read the letter. Watch the video and share the joy. Stay happy and those around you will...

    Here's another reminder of how illegal immigration is literally bankrupting this nation – which will no doubt be totally ignored by the mainstream media in their coordinated effort -- with the leaders of both parties -- to shove amnesty down our throats. Illegal alien and mother of seven, Florida resident Marita Nelson, receives $240 in food stamps, monthly medications, $700 in Social Security and a housing allowance. And she has been receiving government assistance for over 20 YEARS – ever since she illegally entered the U.S. by swimming the Rio Grande.She celebrates it…and is on a crusade to get other illegals...

    A video has surfaced from the presidential campaign trail in May 2008 that shows Michelle Obama talking about the sacrifices that Americans would have to make in order to achieve her husband's health care goals. The future First Lady was speaking at a meeting of military families to highlight the cost of war for those back at home. Her remarks have been referred to in several Internet postings but no video has surfaced until now. Mrs. Obama says: It's going to cost us something as a society to say, 'We can't tolerate millions of people uninsured. We can't tolerate it.'...

    The Urban League of Greater Dallas fired one person and suspended three others after a video from a conservative activist reportedly showed the workers encouraging health care applicants to lie. An edited video was released Monday that seemingly shows so-called health care Navigators encouraging people to lie on forms signing up for health care to get better rates. The video was released by Project Veritas, which was started by conservative activist James O'Keefe. O'Keefe gained notoriety for videos in 2009 that eventually brought down ACORN. The Urban League said in a statement on Tuesday it "does not condone, nor would...

    Judicial Watch has long been on the trail of the corruption and deceit that were part and parcel of former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s National Taskforce on Health Care Reform. I’m pleased to report that we have scored another breakthrough, pulling back more the veil of secrecy in which the Clintons have long shrouded their most famous policy failure. On October 17, 2013, thanks to Judicial Watch litigation, the public gained access to more than 57,000 pages of previously withheld documents from the Clinton Presidential Library related to the “cabinet-level” taskforce chaired by former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton during...

    A single-payer health care system is one in which a single-entity -- the government -- collects almost all of the revenue for and pays almost all of the bills for the health care system. In most single-payer systems only a small percentage of health care expenses are paid for with private funds. Countries that have a single-payer system include Australia, Canada, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Single-payer is popular among the political left in the United States. Leftists have emitted tons of propaganda in favor of a single-payer system, much of which has fossilized into myth. Here are some of...
