Permalink Nightshades Curb Your Enthusiasm

By John Roth
[Disclaimer: The following is not a medical article]

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:

  • 95% of the people who are sick will get better by themselves.
  • 2.5% will get better with very little help.
  • The rest you can’t help anyway so leave them alone.

For Dr. Greenberg to be “politically and medically correct” he would have said:

  • 95% of the people who are sick, and who never went to a doctor and were never exposed to an epidemic or pandemic [Appendix B], will get better by themselves.
  • 2.5% will get better with very little help.
  • The rest you can’t help anyway so leave them alone.

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.

Permalink Russia in Syria

Daniel Patrick Welch

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.'"

Permalink Three Cheers for Gridlock

By David Swanson

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.

  • White House Petition Asks Obama to Keep 2007 Promise to Label GMOs - GMO labeling could soon be illegal

    "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.

  • Flashpoint in Ukraine: How the US Drive for Hegemony Risks World War III by Stephen Lendman

    Sephen Lendman called the Ukraine conflict “the most significant post-WW II geopolitical crisis.” He warned that “escalating it risks global conflict.” Viewed from the perspective of 22 highly-credentialed analysts who have contributed to this anthology, Obama's pivot is global, in pursuit of unchallenged worldwide dominance, leading to multiple direct and proxy wars. According to Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Treasury Secretary under President Reagan, Washington does not only set the world on a path of war but also endangers world peace by its recklessness. The US administration – with the consent of its NATO partners – expanded the Alliance into Eastern Europe, placed anti-ballistic missiles at the Russian border in Poland and withdrew from the ABM treaty. Beyond that, the West unleashed a propaganda war, blaming Putin for the entire crisis. But so far, the Russian government has not had to do anything...

  • The Politics of Empire: The US, Israel and the Middle East by James Petras

    This book provides a unique conception of US empire building, linking overseas expansion with 1) the growth of a police state and declining living standards; 2) advanced technologically driven global spying on adversaries and allies with declining economic competitiveness and military defeats; 3) large scale, long term commitments of economic and military resources to wars in the Middle East to the detriment of major corporate interests, but for the benefit of a pariah state, Israel; and 4) the power of a foreign state (Israel) over US policy via its domestic pro-Zionist power configuration. The interplay of these four specific features of US empire building has no past or present precedent among imperial states. Because of Israeli-Zionist influence on US imperial policy, the main targets and objectives of imperial wars are located in the Middle East. The objectives of Israeli and Zionist- influenced US policy in the Middle East is to enhance Israeli regional power and the dispossession of the Palestinian people. The trillion dollar cost of US wars for Israel, however, has alienated the vast majority of US society and driven a wedge between the political elite backing new wars for Israel, and the public prioritizing of domestic economic welfare...
