Right to Try Act: Doctor Saves Lives by Ignoring FDA Restrictions
Tenth Amendment Center

*** begin quote ***

When the FDA told a Texas Doctor to stop treating terminal patients, he continued under the Right To Try Act. Instead of death they now have hope for life.

*** end quote ***

This is why the FDA MUST be made an “advisory only” function.

More than SEVENTY people would have died by following the FDA’s diktats. For something that’s been in use in Europe for 15 years?

That’s murder by Gooferment!

Argh!

I am a proud supporter of the Tenth Amendment Center

HEALTH: Eat your veggies and ONLY veggies

Don’t Wait Until Your Doctor Kicks the Habit | NutritionFacts.org

*** begin quote ***

Just like most doctors smoked in the 1950s, most physicians today continue to consume foods that are contributing to our epidemics of dietary disease.

*** end quote ***

Strong words for good advice.

But it does require all us autodydactics to reprogram our eating habits.

As hard as that is, we should take that doc’s quote: “I don’t mind dying, I just don’t want it to be my fault.”

Many a true word is said in a joke.

So sad that patient have to die because of their doctors’ stupidity, ignorance, and (I hope not) avarice.

Of course, the Gooferment has a big role in this continuing stupidity.

RANT: Gooferment cuts! “Effective Compassion” will emerge (imho)

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

<A real friend stated on Facebook>

*** begin quote ***

John, I would like to think the world is full of caring People. However, that is not the case. I choose to believe that we live in a nation, the United States, that has the capacity to care about the needs of all citizens. The evidence is that our corporate world, through Citizens United, is able to suppress our best human instincts.

*** end quote ***

OF COURSE, I REPLIED:

*** begin quote ***

Unfortunately, I think your paradigm or perception is wrong.

The USA is a very charitable nation. Even with the high taxation, Americans donate a lot to charity. (Not the politicians and bureaucrats, but real people.) Look at how they respond to international disasters or 911.

AND, if we stop Gooferment funding, then people will not think “oh the Gooferment is taking care of it”.  

When real people and private charities get involved, charity is more efficient and effective. Example, the Salvation Army. Or the myriad of stories about individuals stepping up. The USA has a tradition of neighbors helping neighbors.

It’s only when Gooferment takes over “the problem” does it become a “real problem”.

*** end quote ***

Or course, I forgot to cite that “Effective Compassion” article. http://www.acton.org/public-policy/effective-compassion/seven-principles-century-ago

GOVERNACIDE: “Federal cyanide trap”?

IDAHO
Federal cyanide trap injures eastern Idaho boy, kills dog
Published March 17, 2017  Associated Press

*** begin quote ***

POCATELLO, Idaho –  An eastern Idaho sheriff says he’s investigating after a cyanide trap placed by federal authorities to kill coyotes injured a 14-year-old boy and killed his dog.

*** end quote ***

While there are a lot of questions still outstanding:

  • was it an accident
  • was the boy tresspassing on private land
  • was it posted
  • were there warning signs

The point remains!

Where in the Constitution does the Federal Gooferment have any authorization to kill anything outside of a declared war?

At best, coyotes are a state level problem. At worst, this is the Federal over-reach and even maybe </tin foil hat> an ‘experiment’ (Yeah, like you never heard of  the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male<tin foil hat/>.

TECHNOLOGY: Small developers get “Sherlocked”; that’s one word for it.

What Does It Mean When Apple “Sherlocks” an App?

*** begin quote ***

Perhaps you’ve read that F.lux, which reduces eye strain and helps you sleep, is being “Sherlocked” later this month. What does that mean? In short, “Sherlocked” means that macOS will soon offer features that make installing the popular third-party tool F.lux unnecessary. When macOS 10.11.4—the latest update for Sierra—comes out, the “Displays” panel in System Preferences will offer the Night Shift feature that debuted on iPhones last year. For lifelong Apple fans, this term barely needs explanation, but recent converts might feel confused. So, let’s take a look at where the term “Sherlocked” comes from.

*** and ***

In a blog post, Wood said Steve Jobs told him Apple can and will do this to developers on the platform. Here’s Wood paraphrasing a phone call from Jobs himself:

“You know those handcars, the little machines that people stand on and pump to move along on the train tracks? That’s Karelia. Apple is the steam train that owns the tracks.”

*** end quote ***

Well, it’s better to be quick and nimble than slow and stiff.

That’s Apple “slow and swift”. Independent developers aren’t the only one getting <synonym for the past tense of the procreation act.> by Apple. Look at their planned obsolesce strategy and no thought of the Customer when pulling products. (I was particularly “frosted” when they pulled iWeb!)

So be warned and don’t trust anyone (i.e., MicroSloth; RottenApple; even Google) long term.

WEBSITE: NCAA “bracket challenge” looks like it has a bug to me

No, I had ark. I was looking a frenchy’s bracket. 
 
Whew.
 
But the brackets say I’m 25\160 and he’s 23\96. The summary has him leading 33 to 26?
 
Looks like a bug to me.
 
And, it’s really annoying me.

TECHNOLOGY: Why don’t all devices “phone home” or … …

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Why don’t all devices “phone home” or … …

… … record somewhere in the cloud their last know location. 

It would save me a lot of prayers to Saint Anthony!

Argh!
