One person posted on facebook last night, “Swine Flu now a pandemic.”
The definition of a pandemic, according to wikipedia is, “an epidemic of infectious disease that spreads through populations across a large region.”
65 US cases of the flu out of 303M+ hardly seems to be epidemic. And it has to be epidemic before it can be pandemic, by definition.
Here’s Congressman Ron Paul – who is also a physician – spoke about this issue. Now I like Ron Paul’s case, but the argument can be made even more relevant. This took me less than ten minutes of research:Read the rest of this entry »
September 11, 2001 was a terrible, sad, gruesome day.
It has been a full seven years now.
Our great country was attacked, shocked, appauled, sad, angry, hurt… No collection of words can accurately describe the sentiment that day.
Everybody grieves differently, and for different periods of time.
But, too many people want to keep us focused on the 9/11 disaster, rather than focusing on how America can continue to grow and thrive and be a shining beacon for freedom and the pursuit of happiness around the world.
The time for mourning is over.
If we focus only on the negative events of our past, how could we expect to create anything different?

We’ve all heard rumors that governmental figures are using “mass hypnosis” to influence and sway the people of our great nations.
Most of the time, this sounds like some silly conspiracy theory. But after all the recent news about the elections, I think it's time to find out if there's any truth to the rumors.
I sat down to analyze the speech patterns of the top three candidates at the time of this writing (Mar 08): Hilary Clinton, John McCain and Barack Obama.
Of course, without something to compare them to, numbers are just numbers. So I wanted to get some radically clear benchmarks for contrast. I picked one person who I'm fairly certain has no hypnotic skills – Bill Gates of Microsoft – and one who was notorious for his ability to hypnotize and influence the masses – Adolf Hitler.
In testing for hypnotic ability, I looked for these specific language patterns in a 500 word excerpt from each subject:Read the rest of this entry »
Those words are ominous, aren’t they?
It seems that every time an election comes up where it looks like the non-incumbent party will win, we are in a “recession.”
We had the Carter/Reagan recession. The Bush/Clinton recession. The Clinton/Bush recession. And now the Bush/???? “recession.” And each blames it on the other.
It’s all so politically convenient.
It’s all so damning.
But, who is it that decides that we’re recessing?Read the rest of this entry »
