Hillary Clinton - Phone attacks in South Carolina

Living in South Carolina and waiting for Saturday's Democratic Primary ... Wrong turn for politics - phone calls with accusations - not urging a vote, but discouraging a vote - I'm sick to my stomach - a sad day in America. Today is Wednesday. Approximately one hour ago, I received a phone call to my home which was a computerized message attacking Hillary Clinton with ridiculous accusations by someone claiming the name of Robert Morrow. There were too many assaults for me to remember them all, and while most of them were hilarious, I am still appalled that someone would go to the trouble to make these calls. I have no idea who this person supported, the main idea was just anti-hillary. First of all, they said that she had a tirade when her husband became President because she wanted VP Gore's office. She supposedly spouted profanities because she didn't get her way. Now I don't know her personally, but I know her well enough to know that she always knows h

Calcium Supplement

A recent study in New Zealand suggests that calcium supplements may increase the risk of heart attacks in older females. Here we go again... Let's debunk this research (it's so easy to do)... First of all, we are not told what type of calcium supplement was taken. Was it just calcium? This would be important to know because research has shown that calcium must be taken with other vital minerals such as magnesium, boron, etc. in order to be absorbed properly. Secondly, how much calcium was given to these women? What is the dosage, how was it administered, was it with or without food, was it in powder form or tablet?

The research is not only faulty, but does not even provide or inform the consumer of specific data to help the consumer make an informed decision. Here's a quote from the article... The study involved 1,471 healthy post-menopausal

About the Circus of Life Blog

My little rant at the beginning of my blog is taking up too much space, so I decided to turn it into a post - About the Circus of Life Blog. We are living at the circus in these United States of America, and possibly throughout the world. A circus of loose lipped media, not-so-worthy politicians, religious fanatics and greedy corporations. A media circus, a political circus, a religious potpourri of rules and judgements... a world where people hold on to beliefs without applying them with wisdom, compassion, logic or reason, where our prisons are full yet our streets are not safe, where our young people are violent and depressed. We live in a country that is dependent on other countries even though it doesn't have to be. Our politicians no longer represent "We The People." Fanatical fundamentalist Christians decide on candidates (mostly) based on one issue instead of considering the welfare of ALL . I am a Christian also, but my duty as an American is to vote for th
