  • How concerned are you about adverse events related to the vaccines?

    1157 comments Suzanne Adams 9 hours ago I am extremely concerned, especially about the blood clotting. It's been obvious to me from the beginning that these vaccines would do this, especially in people who are low in zinc as zinc regulates blood clotting and platelet function. I have a doctor friend who I believe is suffering from this condition right now, having severe headaches and high blood pressure ever since taking the Pfizer shots. This new JAMA article should lift everybody's eyebrows and demand a stop to mandating these so-called vaccines (be sure and study the graphs): Myocarditis and Pericarditis...
  • Survey finds that the reported exodus of tech companies from San Francisco's Bay Area is 'greatly exaggerated'

    A new survey throws cold water on a popular pandemic storyline about a mass exodus from Silicon Valley. Of the startups that moved, 12% relocated to Texas, 21% moved to New York, and 21% to other areas of California. Notably, Austin, Texas was not the city with the most significant growth in startups: Denver, Colorado did, at 21% growth. Despite the financial stressors of the pandemic, the survey found that venture capital investment in 2020 was up over 2019 by 4%. And, Telstra added "Dallas and Fort Worth that had VCs' attention, with a 66% boost in the number of...
  • How Our Mass Dishonor Of Elders Helps Destroy Society

    We must re-acknowledge and respect the role of parents and the wisdom of elders so that we can affect authentic, lasting, positive change in our society.> The 1950s brought programming to America’s living rooms that revered parents, especially fathers, in TV shows like “Father Knows Best,” “Make Room for Daddy,” and “Ozzie and Harriet.” The same decade simultaneously engineered the American teenager, ushered in the exaltation of “youth culture” in music and film, and eroded the reverence of parents and elders. Over the last 70 years, the glorification of youth-centric culture has exacerbated the degradation of parental honor. Hollywood sought...
  • I’ve been a Democrat for 20 years. Here’s what I experienced at Trump’s rally in New Hampshire.

    Normally when I publish content online, I focus on the world of work. I hope you’ll forgive this brief departure, but I think that those of us on the left need to take a long look in the mirror and have an honest conversation about what’s going on. If you had told me 3 years ago that I would ever attend a Donald Trump rally, I would have laughed while assuring you that was never going to happen. Heck, if you had told me I would do it 3 months ago, I probably would have done the same thing. So,...

    Here are my thoughts on what a young man can do to build up his life when he exits school. It does not matter if the school is college, High School, or elementary school. There comes a point in time when you need to make the transition from a student to a worker. Everyone has their thoughts on this. Here are mine. What Can we do? If you are a millennial, and you do want to work and provide a living, but cannot then you need to seek out help and advice. Do not try to do it on your...

    Subject: SOS A Boeing 777 wide-body jetliner was lumbering along at 800km/hour at 33000 feet when a cocky F-17 fighter jet flashed by at Mach 2. The F17 pilot decided to show off. On his state of the art radio (that is part of his state of the art 3D & million dollar headset), the F17 youngster told the 777 pilot, “Hey Captain, watch this!” He promptly went into a barrel roll, followed by a steep, unimaginable vertical climb. He then finished with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier, as the F17 screamed down at impossible G’s...

    Article V Blog ^ | July 30th 2016 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Article V opponents often echo, from The John Birch Society and Eagle Forum talking points, an admonition to “Just enforce the Constitution we have.” On the other hand, our Framers, the most brilliant thinkers in political history were not so conceited as to believe their design was perfection on earth. The existence of Article V is self-evident proof of their humility. In previous posts I cited the republican lessons that Niccolo’ Machiavelli, Charles De Montesquieu, Algernon Sidney and Cato’s Letters drew from history that pointed toward the necessity of eternal vigilance, of using experience to inform our actions toward keeping...

    This was so good I could keep watching it over and over again. Former Speaker Of the House Newt Gingrich was on his game earlier today as a Fox News guest. The way he takes down Hillary Clinton is a template for anyone else running for a seat this election cycle. She was wrong on Brexit, she was wrong on Libya, she was wrong on the 'reset' with Russia. I mean, what has she been right about? If Hillary Clinton leads this nation's foreign policy, where does that lead our country? Even a blind man can see her failures and...

    Illinois Review ^ | November 9, 2015 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    Late in the evening on November 4, 2015, Dr. Ben Carson sat down to his computer, as he reportedly does regularly, to answer questions that had been sent to him on Facebook during the day. His November 4 post had the desired effect. With 300,000 likes and 180,000 shares (at this writing), read aloud by major talk show hosts from Rush Limbaugh in Florida to Joe Walsh in Chicago, this post is the dictionary definition of “going viral.” So as a politician, he deserves congratulations; the post was effective. But as an honest statesman, it fell short. The Question of...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 9-29-15 | Noelle Emery
    Carly Fiorina is the real Donald Trump. No, she's not a billionaire with bad hair, a loose tongue and an unbridled ego the size of Australia. But she's a non-politician who's never held office, but is unnerved by the decline of American power and wishes to see it reversed. But unlike Trump she may also be able to do something about it, as she a.) knows how to speak English; b.) is able to think and speak in a rational sequence; c.) has spent years learning how the world works and building relationships with the people who run it; and...

    From the generation that had produced college students who had taken over their schools during the Vietnam era comes a new line of old people: seniors who have made it a daily ritual to take over a Queens, New York McDonald’s. Yes, there is a group of older people who arrive at this McDonald’s as soon as the doors are unlocked, and then they sit, and sit – some stay until closing time. This is definitely a problem for McDonald’s management, since the purpose of a business is to make a profit. When a group of people create a human...

    Hello all, I need some advice on purchasing a handgun. I live in the People’s Republic of MD and the new gun control laws are about to take effect (Oct 1st). I am in the market for a .45. I was looking at cheaper than dirt at several models and would appreciate any hints you can give regarding a purchase. Have you dealt with buying guns from cheaper than dirt? Do you have a better source/way to do this? What is the proper procedure for completing this purchase from an on-line retailer? I would also like recommendations for handguns in...

  • Kinsley: For president, no experience needed

    LA Times ^ | February 17, 2012 | Michael Kinsley
    During a presidential debate in 1984, Ronald Reagan, who was then 73, famously said of his opponent,Walter F. Mondale, who was then 56 and trying to make an issue of Reagan's age: "I am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience." The joke turns, of course, on the reasonable assumption that, as a rule, experience is a good thing and inexperience is a bad thing. Mitt Romney started this year's presidential campaign with the same assumption. So did other Republicans. "Inexperienced" was their favorite one-word accusation against President Obama. It is witheringly dismissive without seeming...

    In the 13 years since he suffered a string of political setbacks and quit the third most powerful job in Washington, Newt Gingrich has been busily laying the foundation for a comeback to an even grander perch. On any given day, the former Speaker of the House can be found on a chartered jet headed to Iowa to train future GOP candidates through his American Solutions group, or in Phoenix discussing ways to lower health-care costs with drug makers through his for-profit Center for Health Transformation. He might also be in Philadelphia, narrating a film produced by Gingrich Productions, or...

    People use many words today without fully knowing what they mean — or should mean. "Tolerance," "gender" and "truth" come to mind. But then there is one that rears its head every campaign season: "experience." We've heard this word a lot lately during discussion of latest GOP frontrunner Herman Cain. Many have warned that while he may be appealing and engaging, he lacks the experience to take the helm of the world's only superpower. Some of these critics say that Cain's supporters are making the same mistake Barack Obama's did in 2008: they're choosing a greenhorn based only on a...

    GOP presidential hopeful and Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann today released the following statement to respond to reports that she experiences “incapacitating” migraines: Like nearly 30 million other Americans, I experience migraines that are easily controlled with medication. I am a wife, a mother, a lawyer who worked her way through law school, a former state senator who achieved the repeal of a harmful piece of education policy in Minnesota, and a congresswoman who has worked tirelessly fighting against the expansion of government and wasteful spending. “Since entering the campaign, I have maintained a full schedule between my duties as...

    I was as guilty of it as anyone. Before Herman Cain’s rise as a player in the 2012 GOP primary, the easiest shorthand was to describe him simply as the “ex-Godfather’s Pizza CEO.” This, of course, was overly simplistic. The truth is that Cain experience is much more vast than simply running Godfathers. He has a Master’s degree in computer science, was a mathematician for the Department of Navy, served as chairman of the Board of Directors of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and has been a popular talk show host. And after Cain’s success at Godfather’s (he...
