    PSP Association ^ | Oct 8, 2010 | PSPAssociation
    PSP is a terminal degenerative brain disease which robs those affected of their ability to walk, talk, eat and see. Quotes from Nigel Dempster in the video... "I wont die of PSP. But I will die of an ancillary illness like pneumonia.  Its often mis-diagnosed as Parkinson's, without a cure anyway." "My body is packing up. I used to play squash once a week, or twice a week. I can't do it anymore.  And I joined the golf club, which I can't do anymore, because I can't stand still.  A long walk for me is 20 or 30 yards....

    The tombstone will reportedly be displayed on a raised platform along with a photo from Central Park and a gravestone rubbing. “The exhibit feels like an opportunity for pro-Trump people to come and cause trouble, so we’ll have security,” Whiteley told the paper. The Christopher Stout Gallery is opening its second year of programming with the Trump tombstone exhibit. The gallery describes itself as a “contemporary art gallery showing subversive and difficult work by New York City artists.”

    Local officials in Colorado acknowledged "very serious" voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents. A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. "Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast," El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a "very serious" pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead. It's not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported...

            THOUGHT FOR THE WEEKEND There is a line separating dedication-to-duty from "work-a-holism". Dedication to duty is good, healthy, and positive. Work-a-holism, on the other hand, is negative, harmful and eats away at family relationships. We must know the difference between the two. Let me tell you about a man who was called the Greatest American Soldier of the 20th Century: General George C. Marshall. Born in Uniontown, PA in 1880, he graduated from Virginia Military Institute in 1902. As a junior infantry officer in the US Army he served two tours in the Philippines, in...

    Colin Kaepernick has yet to throw a regular-season pass, but the 49ers' backup quarterback's decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest social inequality has made an impact that extends well beyond a football game. As Kaepernick continues to protest, he has been joined by other NFL players, and athletes -- both professional and amateur -- in other sports. It has become a divisive topic nationally, especially in light of recent shootings of African-American men by police officers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina. On Friday night, Kaepernick was in Oakland at Castlemont High School, where he...

Citing the Institute for Energy Research, Trump suggested that lifting energy restrictions such as shale production would produce more than 500,000 new jobs every year and raise the GDP by more than $100 billion each year.He also says...

Jerika had told her mother that her chronic pain, along with her very significant physical limitations (including relying on a power wheelchair), made her welcome the idea of death. Jerika clearly was no coward. She had endured more than 30 surgeries for her condition since being diagnosed at eight months of age. Her family made it possible for her to enjoy movies, fireworks, sleepovers and a community-wide “last dance” prom this summer,...

Politico reports that New York judge Frank Nervo has rejected that argument: “Were the court to make the confidential records available for journalistic, and thus public, scrutiny, it would impermissibly inject itself into the political process by making the value judgment of what information is useful in determining the present candidate’s, or any other candidate’s, fitness for office,” Nervo wrote. “The court’s role in the...

    When thinking about critical issues defining this November’s presidential election, most Americans identify foreign policy concerns, growing Islamist terror threats, and Supreme Court appointments as being the high stakes issues. And while most consider jobs and the economy equally important, very few realize just how precarious the U.S. financial condition really is. In a recent campaign speech, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that Fed chief Janet Yellen should be “ashamed of herself for what she was doing to Americans” and for creating a “false stock market.” As has so often been the case, Trump’s direct manner of speaking brought...

Then there is speculation about other problems – neurologic disease including Parkinson's, post-traumatic brain injury, and seizures. And not idle speculation, either. There are numerous video clips of Mrs. Clinton's bizarre head movements and facial expressions, lengthy coughing fits, and unusual eye movements, plus her famous 9/11 collapse. To the casual observer, whether a trained physician or someone without a medical background but with common sense, something is clearly wrong with her. A diligent press would be...

    As technology changes and the foreign landscape shifts, the terror threat to the United States continuously evolves. To keep up, Congress must constantly reevaluate federal homeland security policies. Terrorists now use encrypted applications to communicate with one another. They take advantage of social media networks to infiltrate homes and radicalize those susceptible to their hateful, violent ideology. They disseminate instructions to build crude bombs and attack soft targets. Thankfully, technological advancements also improve the ability of security agencies to prevent and respond to attacks. Cutting edge capabilities are meaningless, though, if the federal bureaucracy can’t move quickly enough to adapt...

Both those immigrants, and the citizens that live here, don’t want the evils and problems that they left behind to follow them here. The laws of our nation have kept those concerns at bay. Yet now, politicians who only care about clinging to power and making a name for themselves (from both parties, by the way), seem to show little concern who is entering the country.

There would be no aquaria and no zoos.” “If animals matter morally, we must recalibrate all aspects of our relationship with them. The issue we must confront is not whether our exploitation of them is ‘humane’ — with all of the concomitant tinkering with the practices of animal-use industries — but rather whether we can justify using them at all,” they concluded.

    Billionaire George Soros generally does not hide the fact that he uses the considerable funds at his disposal to support his extremist, leftist ideals. So when he does hide something, it should raise some serious questions. A series of leaked documents recently revealed that Soros’ philanthropy network, the Open Society Foundations, has been giving money to a number of anti-Israel organizations with the goal of smearing the Israeli government and undercutting its relationship with the United States. Even worse, these documents showed that while the Soros network was systematically and methodically doling out its funds to these controversial groups, it...

I do worry whether home school students are getting the range of opportunities we hope for for all kids," he said slamming the system.

    “You’re getting your inheritance early.” Those were my father’s words to me as he explained that he was taking money that he might have left me in his will and spending it on my private school tuition. My father’s reasoning was that I would be able to create more wealth for his grandchildren if he invested in my education. Thanks to his wisdom, I would go on to graduate from Williams, one of the most prestigious liberal arts colleges in the nation and to obtain my MBA from Harvard. Besides my parents’ willingness to sacrifice for my education—a decision my...

    One of the brothers charged in the August shooting death of mother-of-four Nykea Aldridge in Chicago, which prompted a controversial tweet from Donald Trump appealing for black support (“VOTE TRUMP!”), was released only two weeks earlier on a firearms violation... Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson last month explained reality to the Chicago Tribune: Of the 1,400 people on the city’s “Strategic Subject List” of those believed responsible for its gun violence, most have been arrested and released multiple times on gun charges. By one count (that of the Chicago Sun-Times) 75% of those booked on gun violations in the first...

    President Barack Obama on Friday celebrated the pending opening of the Smithsonian's new African-American museum and said the institution, decades in the making, is a powerful place because it tells "the story of all of us," not just the famous. Obama also said he hoped the museum would help people bridge divides that were re-exposed by the latest fatal, police-involved shootings of black men. Obama said the museum opening this weekend, following the shootings of black men in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina, would allow Americans to "put our current circumstances in a historical context."

    After spending a week at work, hearing about the liberalism being forced on their kids at school, having liberalism shoved in their face by their local newspaper and being harangued by TV shows portraying people like them as creeps, a lot of conservative men like to relax by watching sports. Sports is a place where politics shouldn’t even be on the agenda….but IT IS. Now, watching a football game requires you to put up with spoiled, pampered, privileged, obscenely wealthy man-children disrespecting America during the national anthem. As if that isn’t bad enough, you turn on ESPN or somewhere else...

    In a bizarre video message this week to the Laborers International Union of North America, Hillary Clinton asked, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?” She seemed concerned that her opponent, Donald Trump, had closed the gap in the polls. Clinton claimed that Trump was staunchly opposed to labor unions, but she had a long history of support. She also noted her strong opposition to Right to Work laws. According to Clinton, “Right to Work is wrong for workers and wrong for America.” In fact, Right to Work is only wrong for labor bosses and liberal Democrats like Hillary Clinton who...

    Videos, pics and tweets @ link... The ongoing protests in Charlotte over the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott has some outraged observers wondering if “white lives matter.” Influential finance blogger Zero Hedge, among others, have drawn attention to a video posted on social media that appears to show Charlotte protestors “beating, dragging, stripping, and laughing at an innocent white man.” Many were also outraged by witness reports that Charlotte protesters had tried to throw a photographer into a burning fire. Other videos emerged on social media showing protesters attacking white bystanders. Users tweeted them out using the hashtag #WhiteLivesMatter.
