    Like most wire stories, this only tells part of the story. First off, as a Catholic I was taught the rosary is for prayer; not to be worn around the neck. The scapulae are for wearing around the neck UNDER your clothing to protect your heart and soul. Second, as a public servant in Texas I know that a rosary worn around the neck by Hispanic males is a gang symbol and not for devout religious worship. I bet a closer look at this story will tell you much more. This kid looks more like a gang poser; but a devout Catholic he is not.

    Nope

    The Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, colloquially named after the Soviet foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov and the German foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop, was an agreement officially titled the Treaty of Non-Aggression between Germany and the Soviet Union[1] and signed in Moscow in the early hours of 24 August 1939 (but dated 23 August).[2] It was a non-aggression pact between the two countries and pledged neutrality by either party if the other were attacked by a third party. It remained in effect until 22 June 1941 when Germany implemented Operation Barbarossa, invading the Soviet Union.

    In addition to stipulations of non-aggression, the treaty included a secret protocol dividing Northern and Eastern Europe into German and Soviet spheres of influence, anticipating potential “territorial and political rearrangements” of these countries. Thereafter, Germany and the Soviet Union invaded their respective sides of Poland, dividing the country between them. Part of eastern Finland was annexed by the Soviet Union after the Winter War. This was followed by Soviet annexations of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Bessarabia.

    What an incredible liar you are. You are probably one of the now unemployed lawyers in Texas since most firms have closed the Med-mal divisions in their firms. As a twenty year Texas physician and employer of 350 people, I can say in unequivocal terms you are full of excrement. Premiums for our employees were accelerating at twice the national average and now we are below the national average. Yes, my company saves 40% off what it used to pay for malpractice; but the cost of property and casualty, officer & director, and general liability more than ate up our savings. All we did was come out about flush since vermin lawyers just come at productive businesses from a new direction. You sir or madam are patently wrong about any significant windfall to medicine in Texas. All we did was lose less ground than other states. Hope you like the VA quality care you are working toward.

    Yes, I would get the seasonal flu if you desire. I plan to skip the H1N1 until it is a bit more tested. I have several courses of Tamiflu at home for the family that I paid my copay for and did not take samples. There is no rush to be first to try this vaccine.

    Mixing Oil, Water

    The adjuvants are mixes of oil and water that — by stimulating the immune system — offer a way to boost the body’s response to antigen. Adjuvants, whose effectiveness vary by flu strain, may boost the strength of the antigen as much as 10- fold, as was the case with a bird flu vaccine approved in Europe, said Treanor, of the University of Rochester. By adding an adjuvant the same amount of antigen can be used to treat more people, he said.

    “Until GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis can show me it won’t harm a rat or guinea pig, I think it’s a bad idea to give it to humans,” Vicky Debold, a registered nurse with a Ph.D. in public health, who is a member of the FDA’s advisory committee for reviewing vaccines, said July 27 in an interview.

    Yes, I do. I get it every year and administer it to hundreds of my own patients a year. It is easy for the poster that has been bashing me to go on in theory about the safety of the vaccine, but after over two decades of medicine; I have seen many mistakes of science come and go. Having a patient you know and care about suffer the consequences of therapy you yourself have ordered is horrible stress to bear. It is one thing to talk in theory, it is another to know personally the outcomes of your prior actions.

    Long winded I know, but feel safe getting the seasonal vaccine.

    No, it is not all made in the same way. Get your facts straight. Here’s some info from one of the President’s favorite websites PMSNBC that says you are incorrect....

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32672322/ns/health-swine_flu/

    Shot made with component not licensed in U.S.
    It is still unclear, however, what this would mean for the global swine flu supply. Not every drugmaker could simply copy Novartis’ vaccine recipe. Novartis’ vaccine was made using cell culture, while about 90 percent of the world’s flu vaccines are made using chicken eggs.

    Their vaccine also included adjuvants, a chemical component used to stretch a vaccine’s active ingredient and essentially make it more efficient. While adjuvants are commonly used in European flu vaccines, there are no licensed flu vaccines in the U.S. or Canada with the ingredients.

    There is also limited data on how safe flu vaccines with adjuvants are in pregnant women and children, two of the groups thought most vulnerable in a pandemic, or global epidemic.

    The vaccine approved by China did not use an adjuvant, like most of the vaccines being tested in the U.S.

    A handful of other major pharmaceuticals, including Sanofi-Aventis SA, GlaxoSmithKline PLC and Baxter International are also conducting trials of their own swine flu vaccines, but have not yet announced results.

    Published in the UK’s Daily Mail 15 August 2009

    A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.
    The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.

    It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.
    GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.

    The letter, sent to about 600 neurologists on July 29, is the first sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications.
    It refers to the use of a similar swine flu vaccine in the United States in 1976 when:

    More people died from the vaccination than from swine flu.
    500 cases of GBS were detected.
    The vaccine may have increased the risk of contracting GBS by eight times.
    The vaccine was withdrawn after just ten weeks when the link with GBS became clear.
    The US Government was forced to pay out millions of dollars to those affected.
    Concerns have already been raised that the new vaccine has not been sufficiently tested and that the effects, especially on children, are unknown.
    It is being developed by pharmaceutical companies and will be given to about 13million people during the first wave of immunisation, expected to start in October.
    Top priority will be given to everyone aged six months to 65 with an underlying health problem, pregnant women and health professionals.
    The British Neurological Surveillance Unit (BNSU), part of the British Association of Neurologists, has been asked to monitor closely any cases of GBS as the vaccine is rolled out.
    One senior neurologist said last night: ‘I would not have the swine
    flu jab because of the GBS risk.’

    There are concerns that there could be a repeat of what became known as the ‘1976 debacle’ in the US, where a swine flu vaccine killed 25 people – more than the virus itself.
    A mass vaccination was given the go-ahead by President Gerald Ford because scientists believed that the swine flu strain was similar to the one responsible for the 1918-19 pandemic, which killed half a million Americans and 20million people worldwide.

    Well, I am a healthcare worker that studies immunology and majored in it as an undergraduate. I and my family will not take the swine flu vaccine. The testing has been rushed and the risk of GB syndrome outweighs the risk since H1N1 has already swept through Texas like a brush fire. It is a non mutating virus and will not return each year like the seasonal flu. I work in a large multi-specialty clinic and the vast majority of doctors are not taking the vaccine. They are squirreling away several courses of Tamiflu at home and passing on being Obama’s petri dish. Because of the governments misguided policy about H1N1 there is now a nationwide shortage of seasonal vaccine due to diversion of production capacity. Good work CDC.

    Arizona Farmer Roger Barnett Sued By 16 Illegals: Gunpoint- Stops Them At Home
    by Jack Ryan

    An Arizona farmer who has been waging war on illegals on his properity is now being sued by 16 illegals immigrants. According to the Mexican nationals, Roger Barnett, 64, violated their civil rights when he approached them and held htme at gunpoint on his ranch near the U.S. Mexico border.

    According to the Washington Times, “Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol, he said, after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home. His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as “the avenue of choice” for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally. The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.”

    According to reports, the 11 men and 5 women were crossing his lands to get into America. Mr. Barnett apparently stopped them at gunpoint with his large dog and threatened to shoot anyone who tried to escape and threatened to let loose the dog on them. He had his wife reportedly call the Boarder Patrol agents. These were just a few of the 12,000 illegals this man has reported to the Border Patrol in 1998.

    Good question with a REALLY long answer. The new Castle Doctrine made it much easier to defend yourself in your home and on your property.

    If Javier is in your garage with your TV on his shoulder, you can ask him to put it down and leave. If he does, you may not shoot him. If he continues to leave with your flat screen, you may drop his ass.

    With respect to your question, it becomes a Mexican standoff(pun intended). You may tell him get the hell off my property or I will shoot. If he leaves, you may not shoot him. If he advances, you may shoot him. If he just stands there, hopefully your wife called 911 and the police will come haul his ass off; BUT YOU HAVE NOT DETAINED HIM AGAINST HIS WILL. Under the Castle Doctrine, you no longer are required to withdraw if you have the opportunity to get away. If the perp chooses to haul ass, the threat of deadly forces is abated and you may not shoot.

    There is a lesson here folks and that is LEARN THE LAW. Texas is a great state and we have a capital punishment express lane and the ability to concealed carry. Hell, we can even openly display shotguns in the gun rack. You can shoot folks DEAD on your property and from your car if you are responding the reasonable threat of deadly force. It has never been okay to detain people at gunpoint unless you are a deputized officer of the law. This guy broke the law. The right to keep and bear arms is poorly served by those individuals that fail to learn their rights and obligations with respect to firearms. The crap this guy pulled was covered in the first 15 minutes of the concealed handgun course. The Right to Keep and Bear arms is a powerful right. With this great power comes great responsibility. Actions like this will be used by the looney left to revoke our God given right to self defense and self-determination in government. This guy got off light IMHO.

    Here’s a real head-scratcher for the clueless blogger. The only way GAY couples can have children in their “marriages” is for straight people to give their kids up for adoption. If access to aborting is massively increased, fewer babies for the gays to adopt. Maybe the Gay community has thought this through and gets it better than the baby killing industry thinks they do. If not, then we should help foster this rumor and create a conundrum for the gay activists.

    Where Is Solar Cycle 24 Headed?

    by Carl Luetzelschwab K9LA

    WorldRadio Propagation columnist and frequent contributor to ham radio publications, Carl contributed this short article on the much-anticipated and long-awaited Cycle 24. Isn’t this better than another exhortation to take on New Year’s resolutions? Enjoy! - 73, Ward N0AX

    There are more than 50 predictions for Cycle 24 in the scientific community. These predictions are based on a variety of models (precursor, neural network, spectral, and others), and range from a low smoothed sunspot number of 40 to a high smoothed sunspot number of 185. With so many predictions, it’s obvious that our understanding of the physical processes in the Sun that make solar cycles is lacking. Hopefully scientists will gain additional knowledge when Cycle 24 is over to better forecast future cycles.

    But before we even think about where Cycle 24 is headed, we need to emerge from the current solar minimum period. Looking at all historical data tells us that the average duration at solar minimum (based on my definition of the number of months when the smoothed sunspot number is below 20) is around 37 months.
    The length of solar minima since Cycle 1.

    Cycle 23 descended through a smoothed sunspot number of 20 in February 2006 and the latest data indicates a smoothed sunspot number of around 5 for June 2008, so at the present time we’re just approaching the average duration of a solar minimum period. Whoa, just approaching the average - that’s depressing, isn’t it?

    The data also tells us that there are eight other solar minimum periods that are longer than what we’re experiencing. Thus we have quite a way to go before this solar minimum period sets any record (by the way, the record is 96 months for the period between Cycle 5 and Cycle 6 based on my definition). It’s interesting to note that the solar minimum periods in our lifetime (in fact, beginning with the minimum between Cycles 17 and 18) have been around 24 months - much less than the historical average. So we’ve been spoiled by shorter than average solar minimum periods, and when something approaching the average comes along we naturally wonder if it’s unusual. Based on all historical data, we are not experiencing anything unusual.
    The observed trend relating inter-cycle minimum length to intensity of the following cycle.

    Another interesting fact that comes out of the historical data is the correlation between the length of the solar minimum period and the maximum smoothed sunspot number of the next cycle. It shows a trend of smaller cycles following longer solar minimum periods.

    If this solar minimum period ends up around the average of 37 months (where it appears to be headed), then it suggests that Cycle 24 is headed towards being an average (or even below average) cycle. This certainly contradicts the very high smoothed sunspot number predictions made by several scientists (for example, by Dr. Dikpati at The University Corporation of Atmospheric Research). But note that we only have 22 data points, which is a very small sample of a process that has likely been going on for thousands of years. So anything could happen - we’ll just have to wait and see what Cycle 24 does.

    Reminds me of an old prayer for your enemies:

    Dear Lord,

    Help to turn the hearts of mine enemies.

    If not, then turn their ankles.....

    so we know them by their limp.

    Amen.

    First off, this guy is not “returning home”, he has a couple of high dollar rentals on the beachfront. This gentleman had to sign documents at closing that ACKNOWLEDGES this law and makes it clear to him he still owes the mortgage company the money even if the state takes the land. The state only reclaims the land, not the home. The state of Texas has offered homeowners in Surfside up to $50,000 of your tax dollars to move their houses to another site.

    I also own a beachfront home just fifty miles south of the mess. You pay your money and takes your chances. I pay a buttload of insurance to make the bank whole if my place goes poof.

    Quisling, after Norwegian politician Vidkun Quisling, who assisted Nazi Germany to conquer his own country, is a term used to describe traitors and collaborationists. It was most commonly used for fascist political parties and military and paramilitary forces in occupied Allied countries which collaborated with Axis occupiers in World War II, as well as for their members and other collaborators.

    That Quisling’s name should be applied to denote the whole phenomenon of collaborationism is probably due to the place of Norway on the list of countries occupied by the Third Reich. Unlike Poland, Norway was considered ‘Aryan’ in Hitlerian ideology, and unlike Denmark, it was further off, nearer Britain, and did not share a land border with any territory under German control. Thus, Norway was the first country where local, non-German, fascist parties took part in the conquest of their own country after the start of the War. The universality of the term in the English language may be due to the involvement of Britain in the battle for Norway so early on in the war.

    In contemporary usage, “Quisling” is synonymous with “traitor”, and particularly applied to politicians who appear to favour the interests of other nations or cultures over their own. In American English, the term is less well known than the equivalent phrase “Benedict Arnold”. Also, in Norwegian, if you remove the “q” and the “i” in “quisling” - you get “(a) usling” which means “someone who is ignoble or iniquitous”. This was used more or less humorously during WWII in Norway.

  • Late-breaking: Supreme Court delays illegal alien rapist/double murderer’s execution

    HUNTSVILLE — The state of Texas defied an international court tonight and executed Jose Medellin for raping and murdering two teenage girls 15 years ago.

    About a half-hour earlier, the U.S. Supreme Court had rejected a last-minute appeal to stay the execution, originally scheduled for 6 p.m.

    Medellin was pronounced dead at 9:57 p.m., nine minutes after the lethal dose was administered.

    As the court deliberated earlier, opposing groups of protesters gathered outside the death house. When the prison clock chimed six, a group of U.S. Border Watch members and others broke into cheers, thinking the execution had occurred.

    Medellin is one of gang members condemned for the June 1993 gang rape and murder of Jennifer Ertman, 14, and Elizabeth Pena, 16, in T.C. Jester Park on Houston’s northwest side.

    The girls were raped and strangled with a belt and shoelace after they stumbled into a drunken gang initiation rite while cutting through the park to get home before their curfew.

    Elaine Jackson of Houston, who identified herself as a friend of the Pena family, was among those supporting the execution.

    “The girls didn’t get a second chance, why should he?” she demanded. “Why should he keep on breathing?”

    On the other side of the street, Nancy Bailey was among those opposing the execution. Putting Medellin to death, she said, would flout the nation’s treaty commitments and would endanger Americans arrested abroad.

    Medellin, who granted few interviews while on death row, told a Mexican news reporter that he had 15 years in prison to compose his emotions. On Monday and Tuesday, he visited with his parents, whom he had not seen since 2001.

    Prison spokeswoman Michelle Lyons said the parents were barred from the prison after they were overheard plotting an escape for Medellin. Also Tuesday, Medellin spoke by telephone to his younger brother, Venacio, who is serving a 40-year sentence in connection with the crime.

    Jose Medellin is in a holding cell near execution chamber.

    Six gang members were convicted of the killings. Derrick O’Brien was executed in July 2006. Gang leader Peter Cantu remains on death row. Two others, who were 17 at the time of the crime, had their death sentences commuted to life in prison. The younger Medellin, who was a juvenile, was sentenced to a 40-year prison term.

    Ertman and Pena were raped and strangled after they stumbled into a drunken gang initiation rite while cutting through the park in order to get home before a curfew.

    For days after the murders, police and the girls’ parents frantically searched for the missing teens. Four days after the crime, a tip from a gang member’s brother led authorities to the bodies, then to the suspects.

    Within three hours of his arrest, Medellin admitted his role in the gruesome murders, appalling authorities with his boastful, callous description of the night’s events.

    Medellin’s case created international controversy when the United Nations’ world court determined Texas had violated the killer’s rights under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by denying him access to the Mexican consulate.

    In 2004, the world court ordered a hearing be held to determine if the treaty violation damaged the killer’s defense. In July, it ordered that a stay be granted.

    President Bush and other federal officials urged Texas to grant the hearing, but Texas officials adamantly refused.

    Yes, you can. Been there and done that. You have to request tickets two weeks in advance and pass basic background checks. We walked several hundred yards through the Necropolis excavations and saw the tomb of Peter. Bones and teeth were found that carbon date to the first century and the teeth suggested and age in the 70’s-80’s. Still it is a matter of faith, but I was very moved despite my questioning nature.
