what’s in your flu shot?

hold the thimerosol, please

But what the CDC is not reporting is that each pharmaceutical company uses a different chemical cocktail, so unless the consumer knows exactly what manufacturer prepared the administered vaccine shot, one cannot be guaranteed to be receiving a Thimerosal-free vaccine. And even if one did know the exact details of the origin of the vaccine, the other preservatives might not be mercury but still be toxic to the body nonetheless.

sitting it out, myself.

i suggest keeping your own counsel and relying on your intuition.

why they don’t want you to watch al Jazeera

AJE is suspicious of American militarism, dubious about globalization and overtly sympathetic to poorer nations.

Robert D. Kaplan of the Atlantic magazine, an authority on international security, calls this a “middle of the road, developing world viewpoint.”

It is also plainly pro-Palestinian, which has made AJE the target of one of Washington’s more powerful interest groups.

The network, owned and operated by the Emirate of Qatar, no longer has anything to prove about the quality of its journalism. It has won all sorts of prestigious awards and broken all sorts of stories.

It is now in 80 million homes worldwide, and is known in our business as the outfit that’s always in places nobody else covers.

Late last year, for example, as the rest of the English-language media were concentrating on the crisis in Egypt, AJE’s Nazanine Moshiri was travelling with the M23 rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo, broadcasting live several times a day.

That sort of thing has made the network a must-watch for agencies like the U.S. State Department, especially as Western networks and newspapers scale back, closing their foreign bureaus wholesale.

But Americans with enough savvy to seek out AJE must do so on the internet. Because after more than six years of operation, the network remains effectively locked out of the American cable TV market.

Fourth is the healthcare industry, America’s largest industry, absorbing no less than 17 per cent of US gross domestic product.

”The key to understanding this sector is to note that the government partners with industry to reimburse costs with little systematic oversight and control,” Sachs says. ”Pharmaceutical firms set sky-high prices protected by patent rights; Medicare [for the aged] and Medicaid [for the poor] and private insurers reimburse doctors and hospitals on a cost-plus basis; and the American Medical Association restricts the supply of new doctors through the control of placements at medical schools.

Banks Helped FBI to Crush Occupy

circling the wagons

At times the FBI, police, and the Department of Homeland Security even merged with banks into a “monstrous whole” called The Domestic Security Alliance Council. Drawing on newly released FBI documents, Wolf argues that authorities were “working for and with banks to target, arrest, and politically disable peaceful American citizens.”
