Cancer Cure or Scam? - It is a Scam!

I would encourage all who read this post to go to Allthings2all and read his entire column on this subject. Please email your friends the link to his page. This is one of those things that truly disgust me. People being taken advantage of in a time when they are most vulnerable. I'm speaking here of what is known as the Rife Bare cancer treatment.

From Allthings2all:

Since October 2002 James Bare has no longer been permitted to sell Rife Bare devices to those living in the USA. He does however still sell an instruction manual. There are clinics noted for their use of the Rife Bare method in different countries, including the UK, Mexico, and New Zealand. They are often visited by cancer patients who are not wanting to undergo rigorous mainstream cancer therapies, or who have not responded well to previously tried treatments. Many travel from other countries to the Mexico clinic in particular, including some who cross the border from the USA.


Despite the obviously false claims made by Rife Bare, practitioners continue to promote it as a cancer therapy. Not only are they scientifically incorrect, but ethically their claims are highly questionable. Rife Bare therapy is expensive and does not hold up to the scrutiny of quite basic scientific knowledge. In my opinion its practitioners take advantage of those who are seriously or terminally ill. My purpose in discussing it here is to provide an honest and accurate assessment. Like me, you may know of people who consider using Rife Bare, or may consider using it yourself. It is difficult to be honest when I know that there will be those who are looking for an alternative treatment to put their hope in. Yet if that is your position I advise against spending the money, time and energy on this therapy - it doesn't work.

It should be obvious to people that if radiowaves and frequency generators are going to be aimed into your body the waves will not have the ability to differentiate between good cells or bad cells. If it kills one it will kill the other. My guess is it will kill neither. All the user will get is a higher electric bill...

What Has Happened to Salesmanship???

I heard about this on Rush Limbaugh's show. I laughed at first until it suddenly came to me that we have big problems in this country. This only typifies the lack of go-get-um-ness that helped to make this country great.

In reading the following story I could not believe a company would throw away $200,000+ in goods. What has happened in this world to kill salesmanship? Here is the story as told by of Florida.
SANFORD, FL. -- The customer complaints were unrelenting: With every step, their shoes made the sound of someone passing gas.

"They were whoopee cushions for the feet," said Bryan Thomas, an officer with shoe maker Goosebumps Products Inc.

The Orlando-area company on Wednesday sued a supplier, accusing it of delivering the wrong chemical for an insole gel, giving the shoes an unwanted sound effect.
--- end quote ---

This company tossed 35,000 pairs of shoes because the glycerin was low grade and air bubbles formed in the inserts. As stated before it was the death of salesmanship in this country that prevented this company from making a fortune.
Think of the customer base with which they could have used pin point advertising and sold the shoes at 3 times their original asking price.

  • Clowns - These would go great for clowns that do kid's birthday parties and mall appearances.
  • Young Boys - Bathroom humor is a favorite with boys and they would love going up and down the school halls making fart sounds. Teachers might have to require they leave the shoes at the door to keep them from disrupting class time but this too could be used in the ads.
  • Prank Gifts - A pair for the uncle that is always saying, "Pull on my finger."
  • Halloween Gear - How can anyone dress as Clinton or Bush NOT have a pair of these shoes?
  • Waitresses - With a pair of these shoes the customer will hear the waitress coming and be prepared to catch her as she passes (no pun intended).

The list is endless. - Hate your boss? These will drive him nuts. - Church is too stuffy and you want to liven it up some? - People consider you too serious all the time? - Want your girlfriend to break up with you? -

How could they throw them away? Where is the dumpster for this outfit??

UN Rapes Are NOT New

For years the rape and atrocities have been perpetrated by UN troops and officials. The entire organization is like a rotten pumpkin in a field. - It looks good from a distance but get up close and it stinks.

from Women Against Rape website:
It was late at night when the woman farmer came out of her house in the village of Joru in Sierra Leone to go to the lavatory. She saw a large white truck that had stopped about 50 metres from her home. It was an unusual sight, so she hid and watched what was going on. Inside were two white men and a black woman, who was yelling: "Leave me alone."

"The door was open and one of them was on top of her," recalled the farmer, "K", who is in her fifties. "The lady was really struggling. I saw that one was holding her down while the other was raping her. I was able to see because the men had opened the door to the car and the light had come on."

The two men then moved the truck further down the road and stayed about 30 minutes to rape her again. "I saw both of them have their turn on her. After they had finished, I saw one of them drag her out of the cabin and put her in the back of the big truck." They then drove off.

There is nothing surprising about rape in Sierra Leone. During the brutal civil war, which was formally declared over in January last year, it was as common as the notorious mutilations. What made this crime stand out, however, was that the alleged perpetrators were peacekeepers from the United Nations Mission in Sierra Leone (Unamsil), which has been in the country since October 1999. With more than 16,000 troops, it is the largest peacekeeping operation in the world. "We're all a bit frightened of those Unamsil people now," said K. "We tell our girls never to get in a truck with them or the same thing might happen to them."
----end quote----

The whole UN organization should be disbanded and forced back to the ratholes they came from. Is it any wonder U.S. soldiers do not want to be part of it...

How To Simulate Being A Sailor

I received this message from my uncle who was a sailor in the U.S. Navy. He stated he could relate to this not because he was on a ship at sea but because part of his duty time was spent in the mothball fleet at Stockton, CA

How To Simulate Being A Sailor

1. Buy a steel dumpster, paint it gray inside and out, and live in it for six months.

2. Run all the pipes and wires in your house exposed on the walls.

3. Repaint your entire house every month.

4. Renovate your bathroom. Build a wall across the middle of the bathtub and move the shower head to chest level. When you take showers, make sure you turn off the water while you soap down.

5. Put lube oil in your humidifier and set it on high.

6. Once a week, blow compressed air up your chimney, making sure the wind carries the soot onto your neighbor's house. Ignore his complaints.

7. Once a month, take all major appliances apart and then reassemble them.

8. Raise the thresholds and lower the headers of your front and back doors so that you either trip or bang your head every time you pass through them.

9. Disassemble and inspect your lawn mower every week.

10. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, turn your water heater temperature up to 200 degrees. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, turn the water heater off. On Saturdays and Sundays tell your family they use too much water during the week, so no bathing will be allowed.

11. Raise your bed to within 6 inches of the ceiling, so you can't turn over without getting out and then getting back in.

12. Sleep on the shelf in your closet. Replace the closet door with a curtain. Have your spouse whip open the curtain about 3 hours after you go to sleep, shine a flashlight in your eyes, and say "Sorry, wrong rack."

13. Make your family qualify to operate each appliance in your house - dishwasher operator, blender technician, etc.

14. Have your neighbor come over each day at 0500, blow a whistle so loud Helen Keller could hear it, and shout "Reveille, reveille, all hands heave out and trice up."

15. Have your mother-in-law write down everything she's going to do the following day, then have her make you stand in your back yard at 0600 while she reads it to you.

16. Submit a request chit to your father-in-law requesting permission to leave your house before 1500.

17. Empty all the garbage bins in your house and sweep the driveway three times a day, whether it needs it or not. (Now sweepers, sweepers, man your brooms, give the ship a clean sweep down fore and aft, empty all ashcans over the fantail.)

18. Have your neighbor collect all your mail for a month, read your magazines, and randomly lose every 5th item before delivering it to you.

19. Watch no TV except for movies played in the middle of the night. Have your family vote on which movie to watch, then show a different one.

20. When your children are in bed, run into their room with a megaphone shouting that your home is under attack and ordering them to their battle stations. (Now general quarters, general quarters, all hands man your battle stations.)

21. Make your family menu a week ahead of time without consulting the pantry or refrigerator.

22. Post a menu on the kitchen door informing your family that they are having steak for dinner. Then make them wait in line for an hour. When finally get to the kitchen, tell them you are out of steak, but they can have dried ham or hot dogs. Repeat daily until they ignore the menu and just ask for hot dogs.

23. Bake a cake. Prop up one side of the pan so the cake bakes unevenly. Spread icing real thick to level it off.

24. Get up every night around midnight and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on stale bread. (midrats)

25. Set your alarm clock to go off at random during the night. At the alarm, jump up and dress as fast as you can, making sure to button your top shirt button and tuck your pants into your socks. Run out into the backyard and uncoil the garden hose.

26. Every week or so, throw your cat or dog in the pool and shout "Man overboard port side!" Rate your family members on how fast they respond.

27. Put the headphones from your stereo on your head, but don't plug them in. Hang a paper cup around your neck on a string. Stand in front of the stove, and speak into the paper cup "Stove manned and ready." After an hour or so, speak into the cup again "Stove secured." Roll up the headphones and paper cup and stow them in a shoebox.

28. Place a podium at the end of your driveway. Have your family stand watches at the podium, rotating at 4 hour intervals. This is best done when the weather is worst. January is a good time.

29. When there is a thunderstorm in your area, get a wobbly rocking chair, sit in it and rock as hard as you can until you become nauseous. Make sure to have a supply of stale crackers in your shirt pocket.

30. For former engineers: bring your lawn mower into the living room, and run it all day long.

31. Make coffee using eighteen scoops of budget priced coffee grounds per pot, and allow the pot to simmer for 5 hours before drinking.

32. Have someone under the age of ten give you a haircut with sheep shears.

33. Sew the back pockets of your jeans on the front.

34. Every couple of weeks, dress up in your best clothes and go to the scummiest part of town. Find the most run down, trashiest bar, and drink beer until you are hammered. Then walk all the way home.

35. Lock yourself and your family in the house for six weeks. Tell them that at the end of the 6th week you are going to take them to Disney World for "liberty." At the end of the 6th week, inform them the trip to Disney World has been canceled because they need to get ready for an inspection, and it will be another week before they can leave the house.

Who Forged the Rathergate Memos?

In the middle of an Opinion Journal from the Wall Street Editorial Page entitled 'The Jordan Kerfuffle' there is this paragraph.

But Easongate is not Rathergate. Mr. Rather and his CBS team perpetrated a fraud during a prime-time news broadcast; stood by it as it became obvious that the key document upon which their story was based was a forgery, and accused the whistleblowers of the very partisanship they themselves were guilty of. Mr. Rather still hasn't really apologized.
-----end quote----

At one point this unsigned editorial was attributed to Bret Stephens but apparently he did not want credit for it so the word is out now that no one or everyone on the Wall Street Journal editorial board wrote it and stands by it... Maybe some unknown person slid it under their door and the unsigned article is really a forged document.

But I digress. The question I have and have raised before is WHO WROTE THE RATHERGATE MEMO'S AND WHO FORGED THE LT COL's SIGNATURES???

It seems to me this is a crime that has been swept under the table by CBS, Dan Rather and all parties involved. Had I taken the name of any man woman or child and pasted it to a paper to perpetrate a fraud I would expect to be imprisoned if caught. I would also expect at least the local papers to mention it on their pages.

Why is it that this story, which would help vindicate the parties that were fired, is ignored my the mainstream media? Why don't the people fired from the Rathergate Scandal blow the whistle? Aren't there any investigative reporters left in this country?

No WMDs Means What?

I received an email from my friend Debbie (please see previous posts 'For Seth' and 'Autumn in My Heart') in which she answers her friend concerning the No WMD's argument.

---- Deb's statement ----

... this Iraq thing--it was always about more than wmd's. It was tracking the terrorism back to its homeroots, which Bush said he'd do, no matter which country it was. Was that wrong? Guess it depends on who you talk to. According to the military Bin Laden was behind the terrorists attacks on Sept. 11. Those attacks that day constituted an act of war. But the attacks weren't ordered by a country, but by groups of terrorists who reside in and are supported by various countries. The terrorism has ties to the rich Saudies, Saddam Hussein and others. For those that disapprove of what the Bush admin has done as a response to the war initiated upon the U.S. I have to ask again and again--what would you have us do? What do you think we should have done when our country was attacked? If there is a better answer out there I really want to hear it. It's not enough to beat Bush up--what's the answer????
---- end quote ----

--- prying1 sez ---

The answer is that declaring war against Iraq WAS the right thing to do. I hear people complaining about no WMDs. Look at what has been found. Stockpiles of weapons (that can kill), bundles of cash (that could be used to support terrorists) and an army of fanatics willing to kill anyone that gets in their way.

Children in prisons, women subjugated to inhumane treatment and men forced to watch as their premenstual daughters are raped are now things of the past in that country and soon will be in the surrounding countries...

The question I have is why people that say they care about animals, human rights and women's rights continually raise their voices against what the U.S. has done in Iraq? Why does "Hate Bush" take precedence over freeing a people that suffered inhumane treatment for generations? Why do people chortle with glee at the idea that the Iraqi elections might bring about a government similar to that of Iran?

I think it terrible that people ignore what good things have come about from our invasion of Iraq and continue in the now tired and discredited line, "No WMDs..."

I challenge those people to go back and see that Bush stated SEVERAL reasons for invading Iraq and at the time Democrats as well as Republicans in our Congress and even the majority of our general population agreed it was the right thing to do. These people are allowing themselves to be led as a pig with a ring in its nose by those who prefer political power to spreading freedom. They need to wake up.

"Hate Bush" does not answer the questions Debbie asked!

Kick Back - Don't Run Amuck

In recent months the blogosphere has uncovered some slime in the world of mainstream media that really got truth seeker's hackles up. Some also in the blogging world. Of course I'm speaking of the Rathergate forged memos, Easongate unreleased tape, and Armstrong Williams undisclosed payments. There has been several other things too that the blogosphere has helped to illuminate. Would it be easy to uncover more bones from beneath the dirt? Most likely.

Yesterday on Hugh Hewitt's radio show a few bloggers extraordinaire (Lileks - Instapundit and others) shared their thoughts on the final act of Easongate. One thing I heard really struck home. That is, if the blogging world just spends all it's time looking for the next scandal it will lose in the end. Mainstream media will point and claim that the bloggers are just scandal mongers and only want to destroy peoples lives. The majority of the people in this world still do not know what blogging is and are still led by the nose with whatever the MSM says. It would do great damage for a long time to the credibility of those serious bloggers that are ethical.

I think it would be in the best interest for bloggers to NOT go searching for the next blog storm/swarm but instead wait for it to come to the blogosphere...

Open Letter to LAT re: Jordan Quits.

Open Letter emailed to the LATimes national News Section
re: CNN's Chief News Exec Quits
Sat Feb 12th 2005 -

- Your story Failed to mention that this was not the first time Eason Jordan made accusations like this against the U.S. Military before a foreign audience. - His statements were a slap in the face of our military and only encouraged those who would like to destroy our way of life and with it your little newspaper...

Why isn't the Times asking for the Eason Jordan Video Tape to be released? Are you not interested in the truth?

Open Letter to the LA Times

Emailed to the L.A. Times so called Book Review Dept.

An Open Letter to the Times

RE: Less Reformation, more refraction - By Michael Standaert, Special to The Times -

What a bunch of pseudo intellectual nonsense. The subtitle takes care of his first argument against the book. - "Understanding the Information Reformation That's Changing Your World" -
His first argument is: People who pick up the book "Blog" are likely to think that it's about blogs. For the most part, it's not about the Internet phenomenon of blogging, the term for individual or group Web-based chronicling and instant publishing. Rather, this book is a sustained effort of partisan hackery aimed at further eroding trust in what the author Hugh Hewitt calls "mainstream liberal media," which for him means anything to the left of Rush Limbaugh. This regurgitated mantra, in the hands of skilled marketers, can be applied to the latest hot brand ? in this case anything to do with blogs. -
So it is obvious this hack, Michael Standaert, has more against Rush Limbaugh than he has in favor of honestly reviewing a book. - The book is well written and shows how the Mainstream Media (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN, ALL the print media including the L.A.Times) is now more accountable to those it serves. - Don't believe me? Ask Eason Jordan! - News Readers want the truth and can now find and share the truth through blogging. I also have found the blogs are quicker and much more open about corrections. - Newspapers must find ways to print news stories with facts alone and not left wing propaganda/adjectives on each page.
