    These People Took DDT Pills In the 1970s to Prove it Was Safe In 1971 two people in North Hollywood started eating DDT pills every day. That's right, they willingly swallowed 10mg of poison every single day for three months. In front of witnesses. From the Associated Press: - Robert Loibl and his wife, Louise, hold 10-milligram capsules of DDT which they took in front of witnesses for 93 days at lunch time, June 10, 1971. Loibl said their total dosage was more than the average person consumes in 83 years. He said his wife's dandruff disappeared, their appetites perked...
  • Black poverty differs from white poverty

    The poverty that poor African Americans experience is often different from the poverty of poor whites. It's more isolating and concentrated. It extends out the door of a family's home and occupies the entire neighborhood around it, touching the streets, the schools, the grocery stores. A poor black family, in short, is much more likely than a poor white one to live in a neighborhood where many other families are poor, too, creating what sociologists call the "double burden" of poverty. The difference is stark in most major metropolitan areas, according to recent data analyzed by Rutgers University's Paul Jargowsky...
  • Napolitano: The Drudge Report is not credible

    During a House hearing this morning, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano criticized the Drudge Report for highlighting stories about the department’s purchases of ammunition and MRAP (mine-resistant, ambush protected) vehicles. U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., questioned Napolitano about the reports from Forbes magazine and other stories linked on the Drudge Report. “You know, when Forbes magazine or Drudge or some reputable news sources start to repeat the numbers … the numbers cease to become Internet rumors, and they start having some credibility,” Duncan said questioning the “long delay” from the DHS to clarify the numbers. “I will tell you we...

    Anne Sinclair, former anchor of France’s most popular TV show and the wife of shamed former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has been chosen to run the French version of American news website Huffington Post. The French-language edition of news and opinion website The Huffington Post will be run by Anne Sinclair, who is married to Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former International Monetary Fund director and Socialist politician. Strauss-Kahn stood down from his post last year following sex crime allegations. He was also shamed out of running for the Socialist slot in the 2012 French presidential primary election. New York-born Sinclair, an esteemed...

    Thank you, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, for emerging from your secure, undisclosed locations to remind us how we got into this mess: It didn’t happen by accident. What matters is that as they return to the public eye, they highlight their record of wrongheaded policy choices that helped bring the nation to a sour, penurious state. Obama is tackling enormous problems that took many years to create. His presidential style is important insofar as it boosts or lessens his effectiveness, but its importance pales beside the generally righteous substance of what he’s trying to accomplish. It was the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Maybe Howard Beale was right. Maybe when Peter Finch’s tele-ranter urged his viewers in “Network” to go to their windows and yell, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!” into the evening void, he was ahead of his time on the primal scream therapy front. These days, anger in America is such an epidemic that there’s a chat show running on MSNBC this week actually called America the Angry. It’s a good week for it. On Monday, the anniversary of both the anti-government radical terrorist attack Oklahoma City bombing and the anti-government...

    "[The] left became so ideologically attached to anti-Americanism and pro-communism and Third Worldism that I believe we have a problem on our hands" - Eldridge Cleaver A Washington Post columnist by the name of Colbert King recently compared the "Tea Party supporters and their right-wing fellow travelers" to the angry mobs who used threats, intimidation, and even murder to prevent the "landmark civil rights laws" of the 1960s. According to King, "The angry '50s and '60s crowds threatened and intimidated; some among them even murdered. That notwithstanding, Americans of goodwill gathered in the White House to witness the signing of...

    A new poll shows that a quarter of Republicans think Obama may be the anti-Christ. Apocalyptic right-wing rhetoric is going mainstream, as Republican lawmakers stoke the flames of epithet-hurlers and conspiracy theorists. Healthcare reform supporters who tuned in to the Glenn Beck Show the morning after Sunday’s vote for a dose of schadenfreude were sorely disappointed. For months Mr. Beck, a conservative radio talk-show host, had bewailed the fate of the nation should the healthcare bill pass into law. He warned it would be “the nail in the coffin of our country.” Yet not 12 hours after the bill’s passage...
  • Editor & Publisher Claims Media Show Pro-israel Bias

    The trade publication Editor & Publisher has editorially chastised the U.S. news media for providing "largely one-sided coverage" of the conflict in Gaza and "little editorializing or commentary." Only CNN and MSNBC, the editorial said, had "provided some helpful balance" in their coverage, but the broadcast news networks' Sunday morning programs, it observed, featured Democratic leaders who "said little, or nothing, critical of Israel." Such imbalanced coverage, E&P said, comes in the face of condemnation of the "disproportionate" Israeli attacks by Amnesty International and equally strong editorial criticism in the Israeli daily Haaretz and outrage by its columnists. Meanwhile, on...

    WASHINGTON - Iraq's security forces will be unable to take control of the country in the next 18 months, and Baghdad's national police force is so rife with corruption it should be scrapped entirely, according to a new independent assessment. The study, led by retired Marine Corps Gen. James Jones, is a sweeping and detailed look at Iraq's security forces that will factor heavily into Congress' upcoming debate on the war. Republicans see success by the Iraqi forces as critical to bringing U.S. troops home, while an increasing number of Democrats say the U.S. should stop training and equipping such...

    WASHINGTON, May 24 (UPI) -- Americans favor legal status and a guest worker program as part of a solution to the illegal immigration issue, a new poll found. At the same time, a majority expressed mixed feelings about whether the recent influx of immigration has been harmful or beneficial to the country, the New York Times/CBS News Poll found. The survey found Americans are sharply divided on how open the United States should be to future immigrants. Half of those surveyed said they favor giving priority to immigrants on the basis of job skills and education levels over family ties,...

    It should be the ideal family film for Christmas: the animated adventures of a colony of penguins singing and dancing on the ice floes of Antarctica.But just days ahead of its British release, Happy Feet is struggling to avoid an iceberg of its own, after Right-wing critics accused it of targeting youngsters with anti-mankind messages. Commentators in the United States, where the film opened last month, have labelled the plot – penguins struggling to survive man's wrecking of their ecosystem – as pro-green propaganda hidden in a children's adventure. Fox News presenter Neil Cavuto said: "What I found offensive is...

    Scholastic (SCHL - commentary - Cramer's Take) pulled its online materials posted in support of ABC's "Path to 9/1l," the terrorist-attack docudrama criticized by former President Bill Clinton. New York-based Scholastic said it will replace the yanked material with a new classroom discussion guide focusing "more specifically on media literacy, critical thinking, and historical background." Congressional Democrats have urged Disney's (DIS - commentary - Cramer's Take) ABC to cancel the miniseries, calling it "a work of fiction." ABC issued a statement saying the production was still being edited and that criticism of the film's specifics were thus "premature and irresponsible,"...

    The EV1 may be dead and buried, but the electric car that once roamed California freeways is still haunting General Motors Corp. The Detroit auto giant is the reluctant "star" of the biting documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car?" which chronicles one fateful slice of California's effort to force automakers to develop cleaner vehicles for the state's smog-afflicted residents. The film, which opened in limited release last month, takes aim at several major automakers including Ford Motor Co., Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. But GM receives by far the worst bashing for its decision to terminate the EV1...

    Just over a month ago in making the case for a federal constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman, President Bush said, “An amendment to the Constitution is necessary because activist courts have left our nation with no other choice.” Like the president, many other supporters of this gratuitous amendment believe it is necessary to prevent state courts from requiring their jurisdictions to accord same-sex unions the same status as traditional marriage. Well, that argument became less compelling this morning when New York’s highest court ruled “that gay marriage is not allowed under state...

    They can’t be all things to all people, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Treasurer Phil Angelides will have to come close if they want to successfully woo undecided voters who are key to a November election win, political analysts said. Both gubernatorial candidates will have to fend off the inevitable caricatures – Angelides as a tax-and-spend liberal, Schwarzenegger as a right-wing Bush clone – to win the vast majority of voters in the middle of the ideological spectrum. The battle for the middle of the ideological spectrum is particularly important at a time when party loyalty has continued to...

Andrew Krepinevich, a retired Army officer who wrote the report under a Pentagon contract, concluded that the Army cannot sustain the pace of troop deployments to Iraq long enough to break the back of the insurgency. He also suggested that the Pentagon's decision, announced in December, to begin reducing the force...
