I am a male over 60 and have [or had] a serious health problem that I tried to ignore for the last three years. I tried every holistic treatment, supplement, vitamin and herb under the sun. During that period my gastrointestinal tract quit working three times. I had a lot of trouble breathing and although I had the urge nothing would come out of my body. You get the picture.
Since I consider the hospital a dangerous place I refused to go to the Emergency Room. Not only do I avoid the Hospital like the plague I don’t go to doctors. When I was a kid, before modern medicine and “specialists,” our doctor, Abe Greenberg, carried a black bag and took an oath, Primum non nocere, "First, do no harm"). Doctor Greenberg in 1950, 10 years before iatrogenic disease became a reality [Appendix A], had this to say about the sick:
For Dr. Greenberg to be “politically and medically correct” he would have said:
I have been around doctors and hospitals my entire life. 50% of my male cousins are doctors. My father wanted to be a doctor. My mother wanted me to be a doctor and my sister almost married two doctors. I grew up working in the hospital owned by my father and his brother who was … you guessed it, a doctor. I watched the doctors kill my grandfather and brother in the name of health care progress, and finally I started a company with one of my doctor cousins that is a leading physician group practice company focused on the delivery of hospitalist medicine (Inpatient care) and related facility-based services, including acute, sub-acute and long-term care settings.

Today's interview with PressTV about US' 'You Mad Bro' response to Russia's coming to the aid of its Syrian ally. Full transcript is below... but the line I am happiest with: "...Obama is assumed to be legitimate, and Bashar is the Devil? Why is that? Obama is the head of a militarized police state whose cops are slaughtering black teenagers in broad daylight with impunity, who came to power by literally *buying* the office for three quarters of a billion dollars in the most corrupt, money-laundering oligarchic ponzi scheme that the world has ever seen--relabeled as 'democracy.'"

That little smoke-filled room where our despair and paranoia incline us to imagine a small number of evil people run the world clearly forgot to keep an eye on the Republican Party.
A popular movement has struggled to stop such looming disasters as the NAFTA-on-steroids Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), but the ouster of John Boehner as Speaker of the House puts stopping anything into play. While scholarly studies deem the U.S. government to be an oligarchy, based on whom it actually serves, petty partisan squabbling just might come riding to the rescue of democracy -- accidentally of course.
Sixteen countries have alerted the European Union that they want to opt out of E.U.-approved GM crops. “A growing number of governments are rejecting the commission’s drive for GM crop approvals,
Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations: new threats, including geophysical and genetic weapons could pose threats to Russia based on energy, electromagnetic, radiological, geophysical and genetic principles. There will be special information weapons to change people’s perception, completely changing their mind, target main control centers, essential facilities, technology, infrastructure and population, disrupt the physical processes that occur on the Earth and change people’s DNA, causing genetic mutations and diseases.
Police refuse to investigate an off-duty officer of using excessive force after mistaking an elderly stroke victim for a drunk driver; after throwing a 70-year-old man out of his truck, the cop restrained him on the ground by pressing his knee into a blocked artery on the side of the elderly man’s neck. Although he repeatedly informed the officer that he was suffering from a stroke, the enraged cop continued to manhandle him until other officers finally arrived.
Human rights are no longer a “top priority” for the Government, Britain’s most senior Foreign Office official has admitted, as ministers put resources into supporting trade deals ahead of tackling injustice in other parts of the world. In a remarkably frank admission to MPs, Sir Simon McDonald, Permanent Secretary at the Foreign Office, said that human rights no longer had the “profile” within his department that they had “in the past”.
Syrian President Bashar Assad: Western countries are using terrorism as an instrument of control, “From the beginning it was clear to us that there were foreign hands behind terrorism in Syria, said that he is ready to step down if his departure is the solution to the four-year-long conflict.
Putin, who met the leaders of France and Germany in Paris on Friday, had “expressed a lively interest in the subject and asked what the difference between the moderate opposition and the immoderate opposition is
All Radiation Counts reported are partial Counts. Uncounted types of radiation include Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Neutron and X-Ray radiation. Uncounted radiation, if added, makes the actual Count higher and more dangerous.
The highest radiation reporting city is listed first, the least radioactive city is listed last. All reporting cities are above normal.
Normal Radiation is 5 to 20 CPM.

“This coalition must succeed; otherwise we will see the destruction of the entire [Middle East] region,” Assad said in an interview with the Islamic Republic of Iran News Network, broadcast on Sunday. “We are certain that this coalition will succeed,” said the Syrian president.
Russian Air Force conducted 60 flights, bombed over 50 Islamic State targets in three days, significantly reduced the terrorists’ combat capabilities. According to Russian intelligence the militants are fleeing the area, panic and defection among them. About 600 mercenaries have left trying to reach Europe.”The world’s largest submarine, with 200 nukes the Dmitri Donskoy (TK-208), has set sail for the Mediterranean and is destined for the Syrian coast.
Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian parliament’s international affairs committee, created a firestorm today when he took to Twitter and said Barack Obama is not bombing ISIS. “The US-led coalition spent a whole year pretending they were striking ISIL targets but where are the results of these strikes?
After measuring more than 10,000 representative populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish between 1970 and 2010, WWF concluded the world’s wildlife populations, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, have dropped by more than half in the last 40 years, the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) said in its latest report.
Every time Israel embarks on a new round of wholesale slaughter in Gaza, polls show that more than 90% of Israelis support the butchery. For Israelis, mass-murdering children is a spectator sport. When the IDF starts dropping cluster bombs, white phosphorous, DIME munitions and other horrendous weapons on Gaza, crowds of Israelis pack the hilltops to barbecue meat, drink alcohol and cheer as they watch Palestinian children being blown to bits.
An Israeli publication has suggested that nuclear bombs should be launched at Iran and Germany—wiping out Tehran, Isfahan, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, and Dortmund. “Twenty to thirty bombs,” Jewish writer Ben-Eliyahu raves, “will get the job done.” Times of Israel. — Right-wing media outlet Israel National News published an opinion piece Tuesday calling on Israel to launch nuclear bombs at Iran and Germany, only days after the outlet came under fire for publishing a piece accusing a war widow of killing her husband over her pro-peace views.
"We are speeding up the training of ISIL forces" - Obama
"It’s time for President Obama to keep his 2007 promise to label GMOs. In his own words, Obama declared it was our ‘right to know’ what we are eating, and we agree. The petition comes at a crucial turning point in the fight for GMO labeling, as the notorious ‘DARK Act‘ that would make GMO labeling illegal has been approved by the House of Representatives and is moving towards the Senate. The fate of the legislation, officially known as the ‘Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,’ could soon come down to Obama’s signature (or veto). In other words, it’s now more essential than ever that we bring Obama’s 2007 promise to the national spotlight. Otherwise, we could soon see the same President who promised GMO labeling sign off on a bill that would make it illegal.
