With all this drama about some sissy QB named Colin Kaepernick I decided I would post a pic of a real NFL player who left the NFL to serve his country and made the ultimate sacrifice. Forget sissy’s like Kaepernick and remember real heroes like Pat Tillman.

The ‘March’ in the title gives it away…

‘March Against Monsanto’ Is Now an Anti-Vaccine, Conspiracy Movement

With over 1.2 million followers, the influential group’s Facebook page is dangerously unhinged from reality, featuring posts promoting everything from anti-vaxxer propaganda to historical conspiracy theories. See this post, for example:

This is quite amazing; MAM manages to pack four lies into a single rhetorical question. First, there is no pediatric cancer epidemic. Second, vaccines do not cause cancer. Third, glyphosate does not cause cancer. And fourth, there is no glyphosate in vaccines.

If you got Lyme disease because you couldn’t receive a vaccine, thank these idiots.

Post Labor Day signage.

trump-sign-driveway-p1000279 trump-sign-jogging-path-p1000281As it was with Romney, the Trump campaign isn’t handing out yard signs.  I had to buy these.   And more than that, I found the prices on TRUMP 2016 signs a little steep from the campaign store ($40 per sign, not including postage), I shopped around for this pair for $20.

Well, on the other hand that gives me more confidence that Donald is the man to balance the budget.  Hell, he’s have the Federal Government making a profit inside of two years!

My South Shore town is a noted Democratic stronghold; however, there are NO Hillary signs to be seen (unless you count the “Hillary in Prison in 2016” signs?), some “Johnson/Weld” and one guy put his “Bernie 2016”  sign back out on his lawn again (what’s he know that we don’t?).

I have to find the box I mounted the “Romney” signage on in 2012.  Those stones mark the line between my property and the jogging path to the park.  “There Donald, prime real estate!“.

America is on track to lose air supremacy

The Looming Air Superiority Train Wreck

Even as soon as next year, achieving air superiority in a war with China within a politically and operationally effective time frame might be doubtful. In a 2025 war, American aircraft losses are expected to be severe. In a 2030 war, the U.S. Air Force, after assessing currently funded improvement programs, now expects to no longer be able to win the air superiority battle.

Think the 1941-1943 time frame, when the Japanese and German Air Forces dominated the skies and it took suicidal bravery for American airmen to go against them.  Soon it will be Chinese and Russian air power in control of the skies.

And all our manufacturing based in Asia.   Start learning Chinese.

HZ/su vaccine is coming, don’t tell Jenny.

Have Shingles? There’s a New Vax for That!

A report just published in the New England Journal of Medicine presents the results of an investigation into the efficacy of a new anti-shingles vaccine — one that utilizes only a particular protein subunit of the virus to confer immunity against it.

Since the effectiveness of the immune system tends to wane with age, these researchers wanted to determine if the new vaccine would be as effective in older people (i.e. over 70) as it had been shown to be in those between 50 and 70. In an international study using centers in 18 countries, the researchers recruited over 13,000 individuals. Three thousand were over 80 years of age, and the rest were between 70 and 79. Half the participants were randomly assigned to receive 2 doses of the active vaccine, two months apart. The rest received placebo injections on the same schedule.

Of course, the price will be an issue.  I paid $350 for the old (50% effective) vaccine since I wanted it at age 50.  That didn’t fit the guideline.

That was before the age of Obamacare, everything is more expensive now.  Damn him.

How low can you go?

Report: Hillary Clinton Is Funding Her Campaign by Stealing From the Poor

Posted on | September 16, 2016

Your latest “Crooked Hillary” update:

Hillary Clinton’s campaign is stealing from her poorest supporters by purposefully and repeatedly overcharging them after they make what’s supposed to be a one-time small donation through her official campaign website, multiple sources tell the Observer.
The overcharges are occurring so often that the fraud department at one of the nation’s biggest banks receives up to 100 phone calls a day from Clinton’s small donors asking for refunds for unauthorized charges to their bankcards made by Clinton’s campaign. One elderly Clinton donor, who has been a victim of this fraud scheme, has filed a complaint with her state’s attorney general and a representative from the office told her that they had forwarded her case to the Federal Election Commission.
“We get up to a hundred calls a day from Hillary’s low-income supporters complaining about multiple unauthorized charges,” a source, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of job security, from the Wells Fargo fraud department told the Observer. The source claims that the Clinton campaign has been pulling this stunt since Spring of this year. The Hillary for America campaign will overcharge small donors by repeatedly charging small amounts such as $20 to the bankcards of donors who made a one-time donation. . .

I’m shocked.   Just shocked.
