New Indiana law encourages speeding and penalizes those obeying the law

Yep.  You can’t make this stuff up.  Of all the bonehead laws I have seen, this has got to be in the top ten.  Apparently, the Indiana legislature hasn’t got enough to do if they can sit around and make a law that slaps a $500 fine on a law abiding citizen for…obeying the law…while at the same time encouraging people who are already breaking the law to be even bigger (insert favorite expletive here).

So…anyone wanna bet this will lead to more road rage?

How about the four lane highway near us that people are already using as a race track — I can foresee it becoming more DANGEROUS — not safer.  What a load of horse manure.

It is already becoming more hazardous crossing the highway due to the excessive speeding….I can hardly wait to see what happens after July 1.

I mean, there are times when it is congested and I purposely drive in the left lane so that I am at least a couple of car lengths behind someone.  Isn’t that the safe thing to do? And I have had people come up on me very quickly when I could not get over into the right lane.  They were riding my bumper trying to intimidate me into going faster.  I kept my legal pace and got over into the other lane when it was safe to do so.

Why would these idiots make such a stupid law?  Methinks perhaps they have been making “job hunting junkets” to Colorado to buy some funny cigarettes….

Five For Friday: Costs of War.

middle east revised

This week, Five For Friday presents five charts and graphics concerning wars in Afganistan, Iraq and Pakistan. These exist thanks to the Costs of Warproject. First released in 2011, the Costs of War report has been compiled and updated by more than 30 economists, anthropologists, lawyers, humanitarian personnel, and political scientists as the first comprehensive analysis of over a decade of wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan.

The project analyzes the implications of these wars in terms of human casualties, economic costs, and civil liberties. Some of this data is from 2011 and 2012, so have in mind that these numbers are probably significantly higher today.

1. Iraqi IDPs and refugees.

iraq

There are more than 1.5 million internally displaced Iraqis and 1.5 million Iraqi refugees. Fifty-eight percent of Iraqi IDP households are food insecure, consuming only cereals and carbohydrates on a daily basis. Approximately 500,000 people live as squatters in Iraq. For more on…

Plastic in your toothpaste

Boy, I didn’t see *this* coming. /snarky to the extreme.

Plastic here, plastic there, plastic everywhere.

I think the best way to understand this is:  put a piece of plastic wrap covering your face.  Can you breathe?  Neither can the ocean and all the life it contains….

It disgusts me that I even have to buy products with plastic containers.  I want to use reusabe containers such as glass.  I think most folks believe that if they put their plastics in recycling bins, that makes it okay.  Plastic is not really recyclable — they can make it into different products, but they cannot get rid of it.  I don’t think most folks understand this.

For the record, I use baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves for my toothpaste. It works very well — better than commercial toothpaste.  My teeth actually feel clean afterwards.

And there are a number of natural things one can use for facial care:  lemon juice or honey or egg whites for exfoliating; coconut or safflower or avocado oil for moisturizing.

And you might recall the deodorant I use:  a half and half mixture of coconut oil and chemical-free baking soda.  (No plastic container to throw into the ocean).

Lastly, I also use olive oil soap not only for the body, but as a shampoo, as well.  It lathers quite well and leaves my hair soft and shiny.  No bottle to throw into the ocean.

And the journey goes on…

Maps show wage reality…and unreal hours needed to work

in order to afford a two bedroom apartment.  Shocking how delusional Congress is in saying that business would be hurt by raising the minimum wage…an Ayn Randish view that does not consider the humans hurt by the 1% whom pay the executives 400% more than workers….have five homes (what was John McCains? Seven homes?) …money in the Cayman Islands or Credit Suisse…live in gated communities…I could go on…

Laura Hayes: Open letter to California legislators

She put it so well, as only a mother of a vaccine injured child could.

~~~~~~~~~~

I am writing regarding SB277.

Applying information from easily-accessible sources about vaccines, I cannot identify one person who should not be granted a medical exemption for each and every vaccine. 

This is most especially true in the case of fetuses (as pregnant women are now being vaccinated), newborns, infants, toddlers, and young children whose cognitive, immune, nervous, and gastrointestinal systems are immature and extremely vulnerable. Such young ones do not possess the ability to handle such a barrage of vaccine assaults, much less even one such assault. 

~~~~~~~~~~~

The two worst things for a developing baby and its internal systems are toxicity and inflammation, both of which are caused in spades by vaccines.

~~~~~~~~~~

Word.  The biggest thing that mercury/heavy metal toxicity has caused, besides the neurological issues, is the inflammation.  When my migraines were more severe, the entire right side of my head was extremely hot from inflammation.  Inflammation is KNOWN to kill cells after a time.  That in itself is reason enough to question vaccine safety and efficacy.

The science against vaccination

Age of Autism has a damning report up on the fraudulent claims by the CDC and Big Pharma on the safety of vaccines.

Here’s the link to fourteen studies mentioned….also pretty damning against the vaccine pushers.

Perhaps this is the reason Dr. Julie Gerberding sold her million dollar shares of Merck.  The word is getting out about the harms caused by vaccines and how the CDC, compliments of Gerberding, et al, covered it up.

The questions begs to be answered:  Why doesn’t the BBC mention Dr. William Thompson, the CDC whistleblower who was author of the study that showed African American boys were highly susceptible to autism after vaccination?
