    Remember when the Internet and TV commercials and public service announcements were all filled with healthcare workers holding up signs that said “We’re Here For You, Stay Home for Us”? Do you remember all that emotional blackmail? It was all over the place. The message was basically this: Dear Ungrateful Commoner: We’re out here risking our lives on the front lines, and we selfless and brave healthcare heroes need you to remain on lockdown and lose your jobs and your businesses and give up everything that makes life living, for us… Cuz we’re brave and awesome, so we need you...

    Lady Gaga debuted a PSA Wednesday with her "buddy," former Vice President Joe Biden, urging action against sexual assault. "I'm not only with a great friend, but a fierce advocate," Biden says of Lady Gaga in the PSA, which is part of the "It's On Us" campaign, launched in 2014 by Biden and former President Barack Obama, aimed at ending sexual assault on college campuses. Biden, 74, seated next to the singer continues, "Lady Gaga has been the voice for people who have been forgotten and people who have been abused ... Well it happened to her. She’s shown enormous...

    Last summer I posted about my prostate cancer predicament. Opted for radical prostatectomy (robotic) and found a good surgeon in the North Dallas/Irving area. Three month follow up PSA: 0.04, just below “undetectable” Six month follow up PSA: >0.02, lower limit of “undetectable” Praise God! I was really having a hard year because of this. Now almost completely continent, and “It” is coming back :) Thanks to FReepers who’ve been praying and counseling me on this trial.

    To cleanse the palate, a watershed moment in celebrity public service announcements. This is simultaneously the most trivial, and most useful, PSA to come out of Hollywood in decades. And it’s not annoying! Until today I couldn’t have imagined what it’d be like to watch an A-list actor speak didactically about a Matter of Concern and not come away highly irritated. “When’s he going to get to the part about climate change or impeaching Trump?” I kept thinking.

  • Planned Parenthood to create PSA pushing abortion experience as ‘positive’

    f there’s one line the abortion industry has used most often to convince Americans that abortion is necessary, it’s the infamous “safe, legal, and rare” mantra promoted by former President Bill Clinton. By their own admittance, therefore, abortion shouldn’t be something that is celebrated and happens often. After all, if something is positive and good, why would we want it to be rare? But now, a new PSA casting call for Planned Parenthood proves the abortion crowd is switching gears to promote a celebratory abortion mentality. In mid-July, a pregnancy center in Maine received an email from a casting call...

    French carmaker Renault will maintain its presence in Iran while taking measures to avoid the risk of penalties for breaching renewed US sanctions, CEO Carlos Ghosn said Friday. “We will not abandon it, even if we have to downsize very strongly,” he said at the annual shareholders’ meeting in Paris. “When the market reopens, the fact of having stayed will certainly give us an advantage,” he predicted. […] Renault’s rival PSA, which produces the Peugeot and Citroën brands, has also announced it will quit Iran to abide by the US sanctions. But Ghosn signaled that Renault, which counted 160,000 cars...

    Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month. Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally. In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after...

    A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors 'shocked' his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as 'unexpected' and 'exciting' because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

    Per my report published Friday at The Shooter’s Log, actors were used to portray customers in a fake gun shop “public service announcement” produced by States United Against Gun Violence. That information comes from the New York City Mayor's Office of Media in its response to a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request submitted in March. Additionally, all replica firearms used were evidently “authorized” without official documentation to ensure legality and inventory accountability. Except, per the NYC permit, the "gun buyers" were actors... States United to Prevent Gun Violence-You Tube video screen shot “Actors are interviewed on camera in a...

    The controversial Dec. 13 clip from Sleeper 13 Productions in San Francisco, titled “Stop Gun Violence - PSA,” shows a teenage boy take a handgun from his mother’s dresser drawer, stash it in his backpack, and bring it to class. Walking up to his teacher after the period ends, the student slaps the gun on her desk. “Can you take this away?” the child actor asks the shocked teacher. “I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.” Then the messages “Our children deserve a safe world” and “Stop gun violence now” are plastered onscreen before production credits run,...

    Senator Larry Martin was responsible for heading the effort to kill the legislative efforts in support of open carry in South Carolina. During this effort, he said the following. “If the 2nd amendment has been as you interpret it, why hasn’t SC law reflected that for the last 140 years? I’m sorry but you are describing an ‘unlimited’ right that has never been the case with the 2nd Amendment. My view of the 2nd Amendment has always been the right to own guns and keep them in our homes, business, and property and not to wear a gun whenever to...
