Chocolate Is Healthy?

September 29, 2008

According to Fox News Health Tips “STAY HEALTHY” we are told that if we are craving chocolate “The dark variety is the healthiest. Dark chocolate is high in flavanoids, which reduces the risk for blood clots and studies show it reduces cholesterol as much as 10 percent.

What we are NOT told is that some “high end” chocolate also is high in melamine, which is NOT good for you, as it destroys the kidneys. Of course, melamine, is not a natural ingredient of chocolate, but is added to chocolate candy for some reason by the British manufacturers of chocolate whose chocolate factories are in China, not in England, as most of us assume.

British candy maker Cadbury said Monday it is recalling 11 types of Chinese-made chocolates found to contain melamine, as police in northern China raided a network accused of adding the banned chemical to milk.

A Cadbury spokesman said it was too early to say how much of the chemical was in the chocolates made at its Beijing plant.

It’s too early to say where the source was or the extent of it,” said the spokesman, who declined to be identified because of company policy.

American manufacturers such as Kraft foods and Hershey’s and Mars, the makers of Snicker’s bars and M&Ms want you to know (believe?) that no melamine tainted milk from China was used to make the food products they distribute in the United States. Are we lucky or what?

Kraft Foods, the maker of Oreo cookies, and Mars, the maker of M&Ms and Snickers candy, said they believe Indonesian authorities were mistaken when they announced they had found melamine in samples of their products made in China.

We don’t use any milk ingredients from China in any Oreo products, no matter where they are made or sold,” said Claire Regan, a Kraft spokeswoman.

Mars said, in a statement on its Web site, it is confident there’s no melamine in any of its chocolate or candy made in China and called the Indonesian results “completely inconsistent” with test findings from other government and independent labs in Asia and Europe.

So far, only a local agency has checked the products for melamine, but the levels found were considered very high.

Melamine in food products is considered safe by Hong Kong health authorities at 2.5 parts per million or less.

AWOL Senators

September 25, 2008

Here is one more reason why United States Senators should go to work and do their jobs, just like other Americans feel an obligation to do. Instead, we have three of those members of the Senate running about the country trying to get elected President of these same United States.

While they are running wild, not doing their jobs, the country falls apart financially. Way to go guys! $700 Billion is demanded from the taxpayers to “TRY” and fix it. It’s a good thing that most voters don’t pay taxes on the money they earn (income tax), or none of these guys would ever be elected to anything above the rank of dogcatcher.

INCREDIBLY, when one of those AWOL Senators decides to go back to work and do his job that the American government is paying him to do, to help solve the national emergency, he is condemned for not being able to multi-task.

With national leaders like we are seeing in the United States Congress, is there any wonder that there was no oversight of the financial markets? Is there any wonder the country is in this crisis? The voters elected a Democrat Congress to get the country out of war. Did the Congress do that, as they promised? NO! And they did even more damage to the national economy.


Joe Biden Rewrites History

September 24, 2008

Just imagine what the pundits and media would be saying if Sarah Palin had shown such ignorance of recent American history. Joe Biden does not know who was president in 1929 when the stock market crashed, and he thinks there were televisions back then. And you want to call Sarah Palin dumb?


Vote Obama – No More War!

September 22, 2008

Gut the Military! Quick – Quick, Before We Fight Again!

As President” you’re going to end the war? Well, isn’t that what all of you Democrat members of Congress promised two years ago when you were elected to a majority? Where’s the end of the war you promised then?


Silence of the Dems

September 19, 2008

It looks to me like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — the twin $1 trillion disasters — were the creation of congressional Democrats and a Democrat White House. So where are the Democrats? Why no news conferences explaining themselves?” ~~John Gibson

Well – John, two of them are running for the United States Presidency.


Is ArcXIX the Hacker of Palin’s Emails?

Is ArcXIX, Diarist of The Daily Kos, also the Hacker of Sarah Palin’s Emails?

Notice under “My Folders” in the left pane of this screenshot of the stolen email: “Emails for ARC.” Is this ARC the same ArcXIX we have already found doing Obama’s dirty work on the Internet?

Notice he changed her password at 4:23 AM. This is a federal crime in case anyone thinks it is fun and games.

If ArcXIX is the email hacker, we can help the FBI and Secret Service find the perp, as we have already identified him as Democrat supporter, Charles Hartley of Columbus, Ohio. (We Found ArcXIX.)

The hacked and stolen emails of Governor Sarah Palin were published at Gawker.com.

Democrats Beneath Contempt

September 18, 2008

These Obama Supporters Were Already Beneath Contempt!

Coming on the heels of the vicious lies that were spread about Governor Palin’s minor child, is the criminal hacking of Palin’s email account and the publication on the Internet of her private photographs, phone numbers and letters. It is too much to believe that Americans would elect to the highest offices in the land, the standard bearers of these slimy, repulsive people.

All over the Internet one can see the disgraceful comments made about Senator John McCain’s choice for VP, including the ridiculing of her family, and vulgar descriptions of her Downs Syndrome baby. It is sickening, and no true American should want to be associated with these sub-humans. I am thankful that I have never been a Democrat. So very many of their followers are shameful and without morals, and that cannot be a coincidence. This is the gleeful comment posted along with Governor Palin’s personal emails at the Gawker site:

Ok, sad thing first: a good Samaritan reset the password and tried to alert Sarah. But he also posted the new password, causing multiple people to try to log in at once, freezing the account for 24 hours. And now, the account has been deleted! Which is, as we said, maybe destruction of evidence? So for now this is, we think, all we’ll get to see from this email account (if anyone finds evidence of saved emails, let us know.):

The full timeline of events, with corroborating evidence of the legitimacy of these screengrabs, is here. Here’s why it all looks convincing

After these cruel and sleazy left-wing Obama supporters broke the law and stole the personal email of Sarah Palin, all they found were heartfelt letters from her loving family and friends. They were so disappointed with that result, that they took the private phone number of the child they had previously slandered when Palin as VP was first announced, and have been phoning her. That is the kind of child-abusing scum of the earth they are who want to run this country for you. Obama’s supporters are now claiming the whole thing was a dirty trick by John McCain. That was their exact same response when The Daily Kos published scandalous lies and photographs of Sarah Palin and her teenage daughter. When found out, they blamed their pitiful, miserable quest on Karl Rove, even after their Democrat culprit was found to be an Obama campaign supporter, Charles Hartley of Columbus, Ohio.

This same crime was committed against a Maryland politician a few years ago who was running for the U.S. Senate. Because Michael Steele was a black man and Republican, he was deemed unworthy of basic respect by the Democrat establishment. Two members of Senator Charles Schumer’s staff were convicted of the thefts of Mr. Steele’s personal information, which was publicly disseminated to injure him and his family, the same as is now happening to the Palins. These are the same hateful, intolerant far-leftists warmly enfolded into the bosom of the Democrat party, who now see Sarah Palin unworthy to be a woman because she is a mother with young children and a loving husband, and responsible for her own success.

Earlier today, we brought you selections from the private email correspondence of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. A look at the contents reveals… well, not much. Whichever /b/tard first hacked into the account didn’t actually seem to know what he was looking for and tossed the password into the public before anything that great was tracked down. But still! We can learn a bit from the emails thus far recovered. One, a cryptic, prayerful message from a friend Palin appointed to a nice government job. The other excerpt is maybe more enlightening: an exchange between Palin and her Lt. Governor, complaining at length about the indignities of having to defend their records to the media. Specifically, to one critical right-wing radio talk show host. If Palin can’t handle that, it’s no wonder she hides from the national press. Read on for the full emails.

Who of you would not be horrified to see your private emails posted online, with your personal family photographs, your children’s phone numbers, and ALL the email addresses of your family, friends and other contacts? Even though it is a federal crime, the Democrat supporters of Barack Obama are overjoyed about it. Is America ready for leaders who so brazenly flaunt the rule of law? To them, the end justifies the means, and to them the destruction of Sarah Palin is the end they seek. She is one dangerous and frightening American woman to those who despise the American values the rest of us cherish.


SNL – Women are Jokes

September 14, 2008

But Not Barack Obama!

Is is not interesting that mainstream television comics have not the least fear of ridiculing two women candidates for the 2008 election, while they tremble with trepidation lest their indelicate jokes offend the delicate psyche of Senator Obama.

What is the difference? The late nights comics say that Barack Obama is just not funny so that is why they don’t tell jokes about him, while pounding on McCain, Palin, Clinton and Joe Biden. Since when was Hillary Clinton ever funny? Do you really think that is the reason? Or is it that the other candidates, including the women, are just plain tougher than Barack Obama, and everyone knows it.
