Stacy Washington, talk radio host:

Well, black liberals, sorry — but I have to put you on blast.

Every time this country has pardoned illegal immigrants, crime and black unemployment have gone through the roof.  Don’t believe me?  Check the statistics from Reagan’s congressionally-approved amnesty package.  Not only did three times as many illegal immigrants as were promised become legal through the undiscovered intricacies of chain immigration, but the crime rate soared and black unemployment went through the roof.

Sorry again, black liberals.  You just got dumped!

*** end quote ***

I am shocked — in the sense of “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” Captain Renault in Casablanca — that there hasn’t been more outrage from Black Americans.

Never mind Ferguson — which is a national disaster — the minimum wage laws and encouraging illegal immigration are what should put protestors in the streets.

It’s another national disgrace.

POLITICAL: Toss out ALL criminal Undocumented Immigrants — no excuses, no delays!

BELTWAY CONFIDENTIAL: LAW
New DHS immigration rules: Drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, gun offenders not top deportation priorities
BY BYRON YORK | NOVEMBER 22, 2014 | 8:49 AM

*** begin quote ***

The Department of Homeland Security has just released new “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants.” Designed to fill in the details after President Obama’s announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation’s immigration and border security officers as they administer the president’s directive.

The new priorities are striking. On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views convicted drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders as second-level enforcement priorities. An illegal immigrant could spend up to a year in prison for a violent crime and still not be a top removal priority for the Obama administration.

Surely they are kidding!

As I always say Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient! And in this case, STUPID!

Sorry, but “prioritizing” should be if you don’t follow the law, you’re GONE!

In 30 minutes of less.

And, the southern border is a joke to be called a border.

Instead of looking for new ways to poke “We, The Sheeple” — and yes, that’s a euphamism — they should be asking for the resources to do the job right!

Instead of the IRS investigating and harassing Tea Party groups, they should be aimed at this current and present danger!

Argh!

ECONOMICS: Dietary Supplements are cheap insurance

Dietary Supplements May Reduce Healthcare Costs
Posted on Nov. 10, 2014, 6 a.m. in Healthcare and Public Policy Dietary Supplementation 

Dietary Supplements May Reduce Healthcare Costs

Hospitalizations for all U.S. adults over the age of 55 with coronary heart disease (CHD) cost the United States in excess of $64 billion in 2012. However, new research suggests that regularly taking certain dietary supplements may help to cut the number of hospitilizations for CHD, and thus also cut expenditure.

Christopher Shanahan and Robert de Lorimier, PhD, examined peer-reviewed, published studies that looked separately at relationships between omega-3 supplement intake and the risk of a CHD-attributed event, and B vitamins intake and the risk of a CHD-attributed event. The researchers then projected the rates of CHD-attributed medical events across U.S. men and women over the age of 55 with CHD and applied a cost benefit analysis to determine the cost savings if people in this targeted population took omega-3 supplements or B vitamin supplements at preventive intake levels.

Results showed that if every high-risk person (U.S. adults over 55 with CHD) in the target population were to take omega-3 supplements at preventive intake levels daily, there would be an average of $2.1 billion in avoided expenditures per year and a cumulative of $16.5 billion in avoided expenditures between 2013 and 2020.

Whilst if every high-risk person in the target population were to take B vitamins at preventive intake levels daily, there would be an average of $1.5 billion in avoided expenditures per year and a cumulative of $12.1 billion in avoided expenditures between 2013 and 2020.

“Many dietary supplement products are available in the market today that have been shown to have positive effects on heart health through associated clinical studies…Thus, the potential decrease of total health care expenditures in the United States is a strong argument for the daily use of dietary supplements,” the authors said. “This is a relatively low-technology, yet smart, approach that can be used by consumers, physicians, employers, and policymakers as a means to reduce personal and societal health care costs.”

BUT of course, there’s no opportunity for Big Pharma to make big profits. And then be able to make big “campaign contributions”.

The big winnerw would be the poor victims of disease and the Taxpayer.

And we know where that ranks in the priority scheme.

Today’s first football game highlighted Bears #69 Jared Allen doing homes for wounded warriors.

Admirable.

 

BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), why are the girls and boys in harm’s way in the first place. Did we learn nothing from Viet Nam?

 

Celebrate the Troops … …

… …  by bringing them all home now!

SOFTWARE: 19 Year Old Windows bug!

How does a Windows bug go undetected for 19 years?

*** begin quote ***

By now you have likely heard of the 19-year-old Windows bug found by IBM late last week. If not, here’s the tl;dr version of it: IBM found a vulnerability in VBScript, Microsoft’s alternative to JavaScript which was introduced in Internet Explorer 3.0 and ran on Windows 95. Even today, the bug is impervious to the sandboxing features in Internet Explorer 11

“New” isn’t completely “new”?

Argh!

The Fake Plane Ticket
http://thomsinger.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-fake-plane-ticket.html

*** begin quote ***

Our hero in this story decided he needed to take a chance to get more time with the speaker than just a handshake and a business card exchange.  The speaker had mentioned heading home later in the day and my friend began to wonder how to capitalize on this knowledge.  He thought about this person getting to the airport and having nearly an hour of waiting for their plane.  It would be an ideal opportunity to have a meaningful conversation, however Dallas is a big city with two airports, so he needed to think about the possibilities.

I’m not sure if I’d have even thought of this. Let alone had the chutzpah to do it. I’m categorizing this as “being bold” and “unafraid to spend a few bucks”. FWIW!

RANT: Monsanto’s Roundup Pesticide is expsed

Transcript: Is Monsanto’s Roundup Pesticide Glyphosate Safe?
Michael Greger M.D.

*** begin quote ***

Similar results were found for other major pesticides. It took until 2014, but 8 out of 9 pesticide formulations tested were up to one thousand times more toxic than their so-called active ingredients, so when you just test the isolated chemicals you may not get the whole story. Roundup was found to be 100 times more toxic than glyphosate itself. Moreover, Roundup turned out to be among the most toxic pesticide they tested. It’s commonly believed that Roundup is among the safest, though, an idea spread by Monsanto, the manufacturer. However, this inconsistency between scientific fact and industrial claim may be attributed to the huge economic interests involved.

I sense that Crony Capitalists are manipulating the Gooferment’s regulations.
