    Camila Castello, 34, and Akahi Ricardo, 36, are what is known as “Breatharians” - they eat just three times a week, and only ever a piece of fruit or some vegetable broth at a time. “Humans can easily be without food, as long as they are the connected to the energy that exists in all things and through breathing,” The couple met in 2005 and first discovered Breatharianism in 2008. They eventually transitioned from vegetarians, to raw vegans, to fruitarians and finally to Breatharians.

    Sept.5, 2016 Is What’s Going On With Trump More than Meets The Secular Eye, Perhaps A Connection To Catholic Prophecy? By: Sandra T. Airey Our world consists of the seen and the unseen, the evident and the hidden. We form our idea of reality by what we see and hear around us. Seldom do we realize that those with ability to create / change what we see and hear, also can control what we think. We live in a false reality due to a daily diet of misinformation and skewed narratives. Unlike “Trekkies”, who boldly go where others have not...

    SCOTCH PLAINS, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A campaign visit to Scotch Plains led to a confrontation between Gov. Chris Christie and a local father over the use of medical marijuana for children. The parents of little Vivian Wilson, who’s 2 and a half, wrote a letter earlier this month to the governor, urging him to sign a measure that would make medical marijuana easily accessible to children like their own. “Please don’t let my daughter die, Governor. Don’t let my daughter die,” Brian Wilson implored Gov. Christie on Wednesday.

    Ten Neo-Confederate Myths (+one) "Secession was not all about slavery." In fact, a study of the earliest secessionists documents shows, when they bother to give reasons at all, their only major concern was to protect the institution of slavery. For example, four seceding states issued "Declarations of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify Secession from the Federal Union". These documents use words like "slavery" and "institution" over 100 times, words like "tax" and "tariff" only once (re: a tax on slaves), "usurpation" once (re: slavery in territories), "oppression" once (re: potential future restrictions on slavery). So secession wasn't just...
  • Rick Perry : one of the most conservative Republican candidates

    Should Rick Perry conclude that voter discontent has left him an opening to enter the presidential race, the Texas governor would be among the Republican field's most conservative candidates. Rick Perry rejects the idea of global warming and the theory of evolution, arguing for natural climate variations and intelligent design of the universe. He branded Social Security and other New Deal safety net programmes "the second big step in the march of socialism," according to a book published last year. The "first step" was a national income tax, which he has said stands alongside the direct election of US senators...

    Congressmen Break Out the Cots to Bunk in the OfficePosted by Stephanie Condon January 7, 2011 10:31 AM After getting elected to the 112th Congress as Washington "outsiders," several new lawmakers are stressing that they're simply visitors here in the nation's capitol, working on behalf of their constituents -- and that means avoiding putting down roots. At least 40 or 50 congressmen, including as many as a dozen freshmen, are opting to sleep in their offices instead of renting or buying apartments, the New York Times reports. While both Democrats and Republicans are choosing to bunk their offices, the Times...

    Just because nobody knows the future is no excuse to do nothing in the face of worrisome possibilities, says Dan Gardner, the author of a solidly researched new book that makes it clear just how shaky – if not dead wrong – expert predictions usually are. Good policy, Gardner writes in Future Babble: Why Expert Predictions Fail – and Why We Believe Them Anyway, stands up as worthwhile even if the forecast that prompted it turns out to be wrong. He cites as an example “a stiff carbon tax with the revenues returned to the economy in the form of...

    Al Gore is about to feature in a new movie, but he's not going to like it very much. Titled Not Evil Just Wrong: The True Cost of Global Warming Hysteria, the film presents a devastating account of the shaky foundations and hefty price of Mr. Gore's brand of self-interested and hypocritical alarmism. Created by the Irish film making duo of Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney -- who made another excellent documentary about the "dark side of environmentalism" called Mine Your Own Business-- Not Evil provides the perfect rebuttal to Mr. Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. Despite being chock a block...

    The Left has one thing right. The oilcos are screwing America. What they have wrong is the method they allege. The Left trots out its marxist litany of greed, monopoly, speculation, oppression of the poor, etc. and inf nauseamque. That's where they're dead wrong. Here's exactly how we are being screwed, Left, Right, and Oilco: The United States is the world's third largest oil producer, pumping from established wells that were bought and paid for many times over, and operating steadily with what amounts to federal subsidy in the form of tax incentives and depletion allowances, etc. etc. That oil,...

    [snip] The civil rights movement forced Southern whites to choose between their New Deal-era populism and the demands of racial integration and cultural assimilation. Today's Northeastern and Midwestern whites confront a similar, albeit more subtle, choice between their preferences for a more private faith, a more responsible accounting for their hard-earned tax dollars and a more prudent use of America's military might - and a national Republican Party that has abandoned those principles to appease its ascendant Southern wing.

    Cyndi Smallwood is looking for a few strong men for her landscaping company. Guys with no fear of a hot sun, who can shovel dirt all day long. She'll pay as much as $34 an hour. She can't find them. Maybe potential employees don't know about her tiny Riverside firm. Maybe the problem is Southern California's solid economy and low unemployment rate. Or maybe manual labor is something that many Americans couldn't dream of doing. "I'm baffled why more people do not apply," Smallwood says. President Bush is not. In his speech to the nation Monday night, he referred to...

    Mr. Rove: Your miracle came true. After June 21 the daylight did become shorter. However, the temperature here in Boulder City, Nevada became hotter. I understand The President is in Scotland to fix the Global Warming Problem, while, at the same time, getting rid of AIDS in Africa. Please tell him to fix the temperature in Nevada first. It is 108 degrees here today. Perhaps, The Persident could move the equator further south, or the Tropic of Cancer. Maybe he could move the Arctic Circle further south. I used to live in Alaska and it was real cold. Take care...
