Here is some of the handiwork not of Dr. Josef Mengele of Hitler's Germany, but happening right in Florida right in Greer country now.
This is an abstract of an experiment performed on humans by David A. Weiland, MD and others. All of the subjects of the experiment had a multitude of adverse reactions. The experimenters wrote it off as an allergic reaction.

Living wills, anyone??
PHILADELPHIA - After three decades of urging Americans to write living wills, many doctors, lawyers and ethicists concede that these documents have largely failed.
The problems are many: Most people don't complete living wills. When they do, too often the paper isn't available when decisions about life support must be made.
Living wills, intended to assure that patients' wishes are honored when they can't speak for themselves, rarely address the actual situations that arise. And many people don't really know in advance what treatments they would or wouldn't want.
"The 30 years of literature on living wills has shown very disappointing results," said Charles Sabatino, assistant director of the American Bar Association's Commission on Law and Aging. "The shortcomings of living wills are real. Dying is just too complicated."
A blistering indictment of living wills appeared last year in the Hastings Center Report, a well-known bioethics journal.
It began: "Enough. The living will has failed and it's time to say so."
"Our role as attorneys is to help explain so people understand they have options," McCarthy said.
"In my opinion, taking care of this is a very nice gift to give to your family," McCarthy said. "If your family knows what you want, it makes something very hard a little easier."
Today, ethics committee members will be available to answer questions about the right to privacy. Sessions will be held from 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m. at GPRMC. Thursday, the topic will be patient rights, and at three 3 p.m. there will be a presentation on topics related to ethics in health care.
What the heck is eosinophilia? It sounds like these people volunteered to be guinea pigs to test a new drug. Hope they got paid a lot of money.
Dr. Osman sounds like a little ray of sunshine. Imagine the conversation at the dinner table when she's there. What ever you do, don't choke on your food around her.
And sure does help get one off the hook if there's any questions concerning that nice gift of a hefty life insurance. /s
He [Al Franken] skewers Republican leader Tom DeLay for saying proper medical care might have revived Schiavo as she remained in a vegetative state while politicians debated her fate.
"In other words, given proper treatment, there was no reason Terri Schiavo couldn't live out her lifelong dream of being a Rockette," Franken quipped.
Franken typifies the moronic reasoning of the far left, so enamored with supporting the cults of death they see humor in the suffering.
If this hero of Err Amerika can see humor in such a tragedy, he sees not his own evil.
8MM, this makes my skin crawl. I was just a few miles from North Platte, in St. Paul, NE on the 8th, burying my Dad. Wish I had known about this, I would've shown up for it.
Strange coincidence..... I am sure your questions would not be the ones they expected.
Internet debate made the difference to the court!
In the eyes of the law, public figures are usually politicians or celebrities, who have limited rights to claim that they've been libeled or defamed, thanks to a 1964 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Among other things, Cole said plaintiff Eliza Thomas had become a public figure because there had been "substantial public debate" regarding her and her husband on the internet.
In the wake of the Terri Schiavo debate, which also took place in Florida, Thomas' case is controversial enough.
But there's a twist: The state attorney general's office is investigating whether Thomas had something to do with her husband's injuries, raising the prospect of criminal charges. Thomas claims her husband was injured when he tripped over a dog in the kitchen.
"It's sort of judicial recognition of the importance of internet news," Gabel said. "It shows the power of individuals on the internet."
Judges often will look at media coverage to see if someone fits the criteria to be a public figure. But in the Thomas case, there hadn't been any traditional media coverage; only internet denizens had been involved.
Something we wish for....
I still wonder if one of Michael Schiavo's girlfriends had a key to the apartment, and if she or some male friend of hers confronted Terri that night.
That could explain why Terri did not seem afraid of Michael in the early pictures of them together after the "event."
These crooked judges and lawyers won't be able to hide any longer.
Here are some links to update any not familiar with the situation.
Does anyone have any information- web site links- connecting Soros with the Hospice Foundation of America?
need dirt on Hospice Foundation of America- if there is any...
Prayers for Haleigh and all concerned.
"His mom was smart to take that hair sample.."
What is the hair sample for?
He had been hospitalized in the proceeding months with undignosed stomach and health problems. His wife may have been poisoning him. His mother cut a hair sample, in the fall if I remember correctly and just sent it off to be tested.
