I get so sick and tired of hearing this bs from this republican lawn jockey. He acts as if HIS father is the only Black person or Black man who did ALL these things in a racist society. Millions of Black people in America did the same things he says his father did, accomplished the same things, his father did, served in WWI/WWII/Vietnam/Etc., and did so in the mist of a racist nation with the only difference being other Black people go to work every day, graduate from school (or get a...

Here's one: DDT kills the environment, and is a great danger to humans. This is more than a myth. It is a hoax played an earth's human population by Rachel Carson auhor of 'Silent Spring'. DDT could reduce deaths from malaria to near zero within a year. AND... THE ENTIRE SCIENCE COMMUNITY KNOWS IT!!!! Of course, most malaria deaths are in Africa, followed by South, and Central America. And...Asia of course. Hmmmm. The lie is documented in 'Hoodwinked' by an author that escapes just now.

Wide variations in human skin color have been correlated with mutations in another gene; the MC1R gene (Harding et al 2000:1351). The "MC1R" label...

Scientology births encourage the other people in the room to be silent and reverent/respectful, not the mother. She can make noise. There's no way she could give birth without making noise. It's not as freaky as it sounds. It's just about having a warm, calm environment for the baby to enter into. Besides, the signs on the gate were a ruse. She gave birth yesterday at St. John's Hospital (to a baby girl named Suri), not at home.
