Its been poven in a court of law that baby powder can kill you, Johnson and Johnson Baby Powder in particular.
' Last fall, Smith represented Deane Berg, a Sioux Falls, South Dakota woman with ovarian cancer in the first-ever product liability case against Johnson and Johnson (J&J) involving baby powder.'
The jury found that J&J was negligent and failed to warn Berg that talcum-based powders were linked to ovarian cancer, and that, in fact, J&J did cause Berg’s cancer.'
Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall etched with the names of over 58,000 young American boys killed in action ,the average age 19, fighting the war that even in death refuses to be called a war by their country. 58,000 young boys who trusted their country would never send them into harms way needlessly. What a betrayal.
CEO pay is determined by the Board of Directors (good old boys). One part of their pay is incentive pay amounting to usually millions. This incentive pay which is determined by the Board and is voted on by shareholders ( I always vpte AGAINST ) is based upon earnings growth. How do you create earnings growth? You jack the price of your product. If your product is food such as fish, the consumer can forgo the purchase of that food and eat something else. However if that product is a life saving drug and you forego it, you die! Therefore, th
While it is somewhat unethical to diagnose problems in patients which have not been formally examined, I don’t have a problem with this. After all, I am not a psychiatrist and I don’t play one on TV either. But I know crazy when I see it. The signs of crazy are all over Donald. As sure as Sarah Palin had a case of the simples, Donald has a case of the crazies. His helter skelter oratory spectacles are a good place to start after we deal with his vision problems.
Perhaps a fitting monument to George W Bush's presidency would be to build structures that would acknowledge his accomplishments.
I would suggest building 18 full size swimming pools on his ranch in Crawford Texas , 12 feet at the deep end and two at the shallow and filling them with blood, because that's how much blood is on the hands of George W Bush caused by his illegal, fraudulent and criminal invasion of Iraq.
There are five things we can choose now if changing our world ,and the self destructive direction in which it is moving ,is what we wish to achieve .
1. We can choose to acknowledge that some of our old beliefs about God and Life are no longer working .
2. We can choose to acknowledge that there is something we do not understand about God and Life ,the understanding of which will change everything .
3. We can choose to be willing for a new understanding of God and Life to now be brought forth ,an understanding that could produce a new way of life on our planet.
A black Harvard graduate millionaire tennis player was standing in front of a Five Star Hotel in New York City when he was knocked down and held on the ground by a white cop as a suspect in credit card fraud. While laying face down on the pavement the black victim of this crime said he feared for his life. Meanwhile the drug gangs out in Brooklyn are shooting up each other like the Viet Nam War endangering innocent bystanders.
In northern states there were not the same kind of segregation laws as in the south. I am most familiar with how this worked in the suburbs and near rural areas around New York City. In working class neighborhoods, we called this "restriction" and it would be in place in one town, but often not in the next. In the property deeds there would be covenant clauses that forbid the residence on the property by a whole list of groups of people but the most obvious group was African-Americans, but often also ethnic whites, Jews, Catholics, and Hispanics.
