Scooter Libby/Clinton Intimidated the Senate/Army Rangers in Vietnam/Montagnards/Stem Cells/Lower Infra Red Radiations

August 8th, 2007

The Scooter Libby case presents easy tests for checking the credibility of political commentators.  If you are told that the case involves felonious outing of an undercover agent, you are being lied to.  Libby was convicted of lying and obstruction because his memory of conversations he had with two newsmen, each at a different time, differed from the accounts of each of the newsmen so that it was Libby’s word against a newsman’s word in each case.  In spite of the fact that Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald discovered early on that it was Richard Armitage from the State Department who outed Valerie Plame as the wife of Joe Wilson and a member of the CIA, Armitage was not indicted.  Therefore it is obvious that Fitzgerald was not looking for whoever outed Valerie Plame, he was on a fishing expedition looking for newsmen who would give different testimony than someone on Bush’s or Cheney’s staff.  It was a conscious effort to discomfort and intimidate President Bush and/or Vice President Cheney, but was it a conspiracy?

Blood Type Diet

August 8th, 2007

Seasonal hives were a long time affliction for me.  When I first experienced this distraction about twenty years ago a cortisone shot once a year for a couple of years gave me seasonal relief.  After that I used antihistamines occasionally.  Starting about fifteen years ago a progressive neuropathy and severe fatigue was causing me so much pain that I was ignoring the almost constant hives and the half inch wide welt under my belt all the way around my midriff.

Cholesterol/Atherosclerosis

August 8th, 2007

Traditional medicines approach to cardiovascular health is a travesty.  If LDL cholesterol is high the immediate answer is to prescribe one of the statin family of drugs.  Statins are hard on the liver and the body’s production of coenzyme Q-10.  Traditional medicine wants to keep LDL cholesterol within certain limits because of the part it plays in plaque formations and in atherosclerosis.  Have you ever had a doctor who is concerned about your cardiovascular health suggest taking vitamin C?  Most animals produce all the vitamin C they need.  Most mammals produce the human equivalent of 2,000 to 13,000 milligrams daily.  And guess what?  Vitamin C is one of the ingredients the body prefers to use for repairing damage to arteries.

Islam/The Koran/Christianity/Sharia Law & Jihadist Doctrine Contridicts the Koran

August 8th, 2007

This article is my attempt at placing jihadist Islam in context with the Koran and in comparison with Christianity.

 

When the Kingdom of Israel was subject to the Romans, Jesus came to offer forgiveness of sins to the Jews, and made the announcement that his Gospel would be preached to the world at large.  His Gospel would be for entrance into his Kingdom in Heaven.  “My Kingdom is not of this world,”  He stated.  If you will have it this was a pronouncement of the end of theocratic judgement as to earthly punishment for sin.  Judgement pertaining to the Kingdom of God was to be postponed until death.  Because of Jesus we enjoy a probationary state with regard to the Kingdom of Heaven.  Earthly punishment would only be administered by civil authority for crimes against society and individuals, not for sin against God.

Global Warming/Quantum Limitations on Greenhouse Gases/Water Vapor A Stronger Greenhouse Gas and a Temperature Moderator

August 8th, 2007

Global warming is being used as a partisan political club for beating up on conservatives.  I believe in global warming.  I also believe in global cooling.  Since we are about 150 years from the last cooling period called the Little Ice Age it is no wonder that glaciers are retreating.  The history of the earth’s climate is represented by lots of spikes in temperature.  Within the large scale cycles there are smaller cycles severe enough to have affected populated areas of the earth in the last several thousand years.  Warmer weather leads to more surface water and more snow and ice.  Water, snow, and ice leads to global cooling.  During the Climatic Optimum seven thousand years ago when conditions were warmer and wetter than today CO2 levels were little more than half of what they are today.  Since then we have had global cooling that maxed out at between 5,000 and 6,000 years ago and again from a little before to a little after three thousand years ago, with a significant warming spell in between.  Changes in the Gulf Stream are blamed on these 1,500 year cycles.
