Dates are so confusing…

leave a comment »

At least if you’re running the Twitter account of His Oneness.   How else can you explain  muffing the date  of the first moonwalk?   Well,  it could be because the guy behind the tweets is as careless and ignorant as the named owner of the account and apparently untutored in using Google.

Koch Brothers smart move…

leave a comment »

The Koch Brothers have given a  $25 million grant  to the United Negro College Fund.   Most of the money  ($18.5 million) will go toward a scholarship program.   The other $6.5 million is provided for general support to historically black colleges and universities and the UNCF,  $4 million of which will be set aside for loan assistance.

We haven’t heard a word from Sen. Harry Reid on this new development.   Why not?   Is he unprepared to say that the evil Koch Brothers have bough the United Negro College Fund?

UPDATE:   Now the  Left is  screeching about this gift,  proving that it is more interested in politics than anything else.   Remember that it also  objected vehemently  when the Koch Brothers gave a hospital $100 million,  and was joined in the protest by a nurses’ union  of all things.

Fasting helps immune system…

leave a comment »

The medical profession won’t  like this,  and Big Pharma will hate it.   Apparently,  only three days of fasting can force your immune system to regenerate itself.   This actually doesn’t surprise me,  as farmers in India have been beating their mango trees for many centuries.  They use sticks to beat roughly ten percent of the orchard each year.  The physical threat to the trees make them bear earlier and toughen them up.   A lack of nourishment in humans has much the same effect,  forcing the immune system to ditch all the old,  non-performing cells and generate new ones.
