“Great” Britain Imprisons Man for Speaking Out Against Child Rape

By Jim O’Neill

Arrested for “breaching the peace” while reporting on a Islamic grooming gang trial?
Has the United Kingdom become a police state?
Jail = a death sentence for Tommy Robinson.
Come to your senses United Kingdom!

English patriot and social activist Tommy Robinson has been arrested and purportedly sentenced to 13 months in prison for attempting to report on a Muslim “grooming gang.”  Great Britain (I use the term “great” loosely) has issued a gag order on media, barring them from reporting on Robinson’s plight.  Nothing to see here folks, move along.

Robinson has been active for several years exposing the epidemic of Muslim rape gangs targeting non-Muslim England children and has been routinely arrested and jailed by UK police attempting to silence him.

Across the UK dozens of Muslim Rape Gangs have been exposed as operating sex trafficking rings targeting non-Muslim girls, some as young as 10, for sexual exploitation, drug peddling and torture. Several deaths have been linked to these gangs.

As I mentioned, if you rely on the British MSM to get your news the chances are slim to none that you are even aware that Tommy Robinson has been arrested, let alone imprisoned (a prison sentence for Tommy may well be tantamount to a death sentence).

   [The] MSM policy of “if we don’t report it, it hasn’t happened” attitude has hit us here in the UK with full force: if you look at today’s MSM, the arrest and jailing of Tommy Robinson yesterday simply didn’t happen.

Martin Barillas “Katie Hopkins says fellow activist could be killed while serving sentence: is she right?

If you to dare speak the truth in Britain these days you are viciously attacked as a knuckle-dragging racist buffoon, as a matter of course.  The Powers That Be have a jackboot firmly on the throat of the British people.  Truth has become “hate speech” and patriotism is regarded as xenophobic subversion.

Tommy Robinson has warned the USA numerous times that what has happened to once great Britain is inexorably making its way to America.  But for the grace of God and Donald J. Trump it would already be here.  May God guide, bless, and protect Tommy Robinson.  Laus Deo, power to the people!

Hero dogs: saves newborn baby; fosters orphaned ducklings

God is so good…don’t you just love these wonderful creatures.

Fellowship of the Minds

A female dog in Argentina has more humanity than too many humans.

The 8-year-old dog found an abandoned, prematurely-born baby in a field of rubbish in a shanty town outside of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was winter.

The dog picked up the baby, carried him 55 yards and placed the baby among her puppies.

The dog’s owner heard the baby’s cries and found him covered with a rag. The baby had no bite marks.

Police found the baby’s 14-year-old mother. (FoxNews)

Fred, a 10-year-old Labrador, is the resident dog at tourist attraction Mountfitchet Castle — a reconstructed Norman castle in Stansted, Essex, about 35 miles north of London.

One day, the staff found nine little ducklings wandering the castle grounds without their mother, probably killed by a fox.

Fred took to the ducklings and became their foster dad.

The little ducklings follow Fred everywhere, having imprinted on him…

SUPER STRAIN OF E-COLI

  • Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ? 
  • This deceptive Obama trade deal places our health in serious jeopardy.
  • Please help circulate!

Dear Reader,

While the media was busy reporting last week about why some people hear “Laurel” while others hear “Yanny,” a vital piece of news slipped right on by.

So, unless you happen to subscribe to the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, you likely didn’t hear that a super-strain of E. coli was just discovered on a commercial Chinese poultry farm.

This superbug is resistant to what’s called the antibiotic of “last resort,” a drug called colistin, meaning that it could be dire news for anyone who’s exposed. And while this threat appears to be thousands of miles away, it could come as close as your local supermarket.

Ever since the first shipment of poultry processed in China quietly arrived in the U.S. last year, we’ve been living under the threat that one of those Chinese superbugs will hitch a ride right along with it.

And as an eAlert reader, you know that we’ve been sounding the alarm for a while now about these Chinese chicken imports, which were first proposed during the Obama years. Now, however, that the plan has finally hatched, your only line of defense is knowing exactly where your chicken comes from.

Here’s what to look for before you touch another tender, wing, or roaster!


Going on a wing and a prayer

When a carton containing 110 pounds of poultry patties and nuggets from China arrived at a U.S. dock last June, whoever cut the seal on it opened up Pandora’s Box.

That was the very first shipment that resulted from a crazy trade deal allowing chickens that have been hatched, grown, and slaughtered in Chile, Canada, or the U.S. to be shipped to China… processed and cooked in China… then shipped back to the Americas.

If you think that sounds far-fetched, you’re not alone. But despite numerous protests over this deal, which was designed to make nice with China to open up that market for our beef exports, it’s now signed, sealed… and most definitely delivered!

While that first box of cooked chicken came from Chile, meaning that it traveled twice across the Pacific to reach our shores, that’s just the opening act — or as a former USDA official called it, a show of “good faith” from the U.S. as it gets everything cooked up for what’s going to be the main course.

Certainly, making ready-to-eat chicken products in a Chinese processing plant is bad enough, but what’s coming next will be even riskier. That’s allowing chicken that’s been raised and slaughtered right in China — the epicenter of poultry superbugs — to cross our borders and reach our tables.

In fact, the USDA outlined its plan to do exactly that, and it appeared as a proposed rule in a public notice last year. But again, unless you read the Federal Register, you wouldn’t have heard about that one!

And to give you an idea of how much Chinese chicken is expected to enter the U.S., the USDA estimates it to be over 300 million pounds a year for the next five years!

While the new discovery of that super-strain E. coli microbe is very scary news, it’s almost par for the course when it comes to Chinese poultry.

A study done last year and covered by the South China Morning Post found that almost 90 percent of the chicken meat sold in a particular province in China was contaminated with a superbug gene called MCR-1. That means that any bacteria carrying the gene is also resistant to the last-ditch antibiotic colistin.

Just remember, this is the same country where rat meat was sold as lamb and contaminated baby formula made hundreds of thousands of Chinese babies sick, killing six.

And of course, there was the pet food scandal of 2007, when Chinese suppliers replaced wheat gluten with a toxic chemical to save money. Thousands of dogs and cats in the U.S. died as a result.

While the big question is where this chicken may end up, no one really knows. The USDA has devised this whole plan to be as secretive as possible.

This means that you want to make sure any chicken you eat is raised AND processed right here in America. The first thing you’ll have to do is give up any pre-cooked chicken dishes — especially nuggets or patties. Chances are slim to none that any notice will be placed on the packaging to tell you whether it came from Shanghai or Sandusky, Ohio.

Next, be sure that any poultry you buy to cook at home comes from organic-certified U.S. farms.

While that may cost a little bit more, you’ll know that your chicken is “made” in the U.S. from start to finish, contains no pesticides or antibiotics, and didn’t arrive on a slow boat from China!

Minnesota Somalis defraud taxpayers $100M; sent to terrorists

This is so typical, all these “refugees” and illegal aliens are bleeding American taxpayers, but to have funds used for terrorism is beyond the pale. Where the hell is our worthless Congress?! We have leftist Paul Ryan even trying to pass amnesty before he leaves. I wish he’d go now…because he’s been a thorn in our side since he took office.

Fellowship of the Minds

KMSP Fox9 in Minneapolis, Minnesota has undertaken something the national MSM no longer seem to do — bold, investigative journalism.

For five months, Fox9 investigated rampant welfare fraud by the Somali “refugee” and immigrant community in Minnesota, which cost the state’s taxpayers a whopping $100 million a year. Even worse, the $millions defrauded were then transferred to Muslim terrorists in Somali and other countries in the Middle East.

Through the Refugee Act of 1980, sponsored by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D) and former Sen. Joe Biden (D), the federal government has been aggressively “resettling” refugees from the east African country of Somalia into the United States, especially Minnesota. As of 2017, the state has an estimated 57,000 Somalis, the largest population of Somalis outside of East Africa.

Jeff Baillon reports on May 13, 2018 that Fox9 investigators used (1) public records; and (2) nearly a dozen government sources…

Oral Antibiotics are Not As Safe As You Think

  • Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?
  • Note: Taken from Health Sciences Institute e-Alert – Melissa Young – 5/21/18
  • Dear Reader,When your doctor prescribes you an antibiotic just to be “on the safe side,” you may think that taking it can’t hurt.Unfortunately, it can… a whole lot!

    I’m not referring to what we already know about the overuse of antibiotics contributing to the deadly rise of superbugs.

    Nope, I’m talking about these drugs causing actual excruciating pain that can feel as if razor blades are poking your back, belly, and sides.

    That’s what kidney stones feel like. And if you’ve ever experienced one on the move, you know just what I mean!

    Now, some new research out of the University of Pennsylvania has found a link between taking certain types of antibiotics and a significantly higher risk of developing this agonizing condition.

    Even worse, that danger is greater for kids — and the younger they are, the higher the risk.

    Experts keep saying that the giant rise in the number of kidney stone cases — a whopping 70 percent increase during the past three decades — is still a mystery. But it looks as if we can now identify a very clear cause of this phenomenon — as well as a way to try to put a lid on it.

    ———————————————————————-
    Stoned on antibiotics
    ———————————————————————-

    They say that people don’t remember pain for the most part — but the kind caused by kidney stones appears to be another story!

    Dr. Gregory Tasian, the pediatric urologist at Penn who led this new research, points out how kidney stones used to be a problem mainly for middle-aged men. Now, however, they’re striking younger and younger people.

    So, building on prior research that found that those more prone to stones had “shifts” or alterations in their gut bacteria, Tasian and his team focused on the likeliest explanation — antibiotics, which kill both the good and bad bugs in your body.

    They analyzed two decades of health records for millions of adults and kids in the UK, focusing specifically on those who had suffered attacks of kidney stones.

    And they found that certain classes of oral antibiotics — namely sulfas, cephalosporins, fluoroquinolones (which include Cipro and Levaquin), nitrofurantoin, and ones known as “broad-spectrum” penicillins — were linked to a significantly higher risk of kidney stones.

    Compared to subjects who didn’t take any antibiotics, sulfa drugs were found to double the chances of developing kidney stones, and taking penicillin upped the risk by almost 30 percent!

    And while the likelihood of developing stones due to these meds is highest for up to six months after a course of antibiotics, the researchers found that the risk can stick with you for several years!

    The problem is that you can’t always say no to antibiotics, which can save lives when used properly.

    But for a long time now, these drugs have been given out more like they’re Life Savers candies for the slightest sniffle or sneeze. In fact, the rise in kidney stones actually parallels the increase in antibiotic prescriptions!

    As the researchers noted, around one-third of the antibiotics given to kids are totally unnecessary. And as I told you a few months ago, a study from the Carolinas HealthCare System found that the other group for whom antibiotics are being way over prescribed is… you guessed it… seniors!

    So, from the youngest to the oldest patients, it looks like all you have to do is show up at a doctor’s office and — bingo! — you’re on a course of antibiotics just to be on that “safe side”!

    I know that it’s difficult to question your doctor, especially if you’ve been seeing him for a long time. But it’s possible that these two questions could save you or a child in your family from a horribly painful ordeal:

    #1 If you’re prescribed an antibiotic and don’t have a bacterial infection, ask your doctor why it’s necessary. You might be surprised at how easily your doc will simply say “Never mind.”

    #2 If you truly do need an antibiotic and it happens to be one that promotes kidney stones, ask if you can take another type. Many times, powerful drugs such as Cipro are handed out on a one-size-fits-all basis to save the trouble of taking a culture.

    And as a general rule for avoiding kidney stones (regardless of whether you’re taking an antibiotic), make sure that you’re drinking enough water, especially during the soon-to-arrive hot weather!

    To Staying Stone-Free,

    Melissa Young

Trump and the ‘Fourth Turning’ of America

An old high school chum bought this book and sent it to me. Told me I had to read it. Slowly but surely I did, and Dr. E has laid out the book in concise and easy understanding. She’s right!

Fellowship of the Minds

In their 1997 book, The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy – What the Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous With Destiny, authors William Strauss and Neil Howedescribe the history of America — the 13 colonies and the United States — as a fourfold cycle of generational types. People in a particular age group tend to share a distinct set of beliefs, attitudes, values and behaviors because they all grew up and came of age during a particular period in history. Strauss and Howe maintained that every 80 years American history has been marked by a crisis or “fourth turning” that destroyed an old order and created a new one. Reportedly, Steve Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist and senior counselor, is a proponent of the “fourth turning” idea.

Jay Weidner is a filmmaker, author and radio personality. In the essay, “Trump and the…

Planned Parenthood “Chaplain” Is a Presbyterian Minister? WHAT??

by Rev. Austin Miles

This story is painful to write since this writer grew up in the Presbyterian Church, which was considered THE church to go to. It was known as the church where ‘the best people’ attended. That of course came about since The York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C., immediately became known as “The Church of Presidents” since President Abraham Lincoln faithfully attended every Sunday until he died on April 15,1865.

The presidents following Lincoln worshiped in that church which is still there, at the same location where this columnist once visited.  My family attended North Park Presbyterian Church in Evansville, Indiana from the time I was a toddler. It was a little brick church in walking distance from our home. I was baptized there and graduated from the Cradle Roll Bible Class (with honors of course). Yep, I wore my first cap and gown when I was three.

We loved that church I grew up in. We could not imagine it with any other pastor than Rev. Addison Chapin, who had served as a missionary in Africa before becoming a pastor. With his little square mustache, he looked like a cross between Charlie Chaplin and Adolph Hitler, with a resonant deep voice that held everyone’s attention. That was in the days before microphones or sound systems.

It would have been unthinkable to imagine this church partnering with the world’s blasphemous thinking, tossing out morals, and embracing the most disgusting sexual excursions that could be thought up, and encouraging it.

The church eventually broke into two factions, Presbyterian USA which turned disgustingly liberal, and Presbyterian EPC which stands for Evangelical Presbyterian Church, the side that believes and preaches what the Bible says.

So it is the Presbyterian U.S.A. who has sold out to Satan and has partnered with Planned Parenthood, a billion dollar a year killing industry that tears apart little pre-born babies, limb by limb, who are simply inconvenient for the parents.

As for this ‘Presbyterian minister’ who has joined Planned Parenthood, it is especially distasteful to be forced, by tradition, to call this religious fraud, “The Reverend” Marvin Ellison who has turned his back on the God he pledged to serve by helping an abortion business in Portland, Maine that earns a fortune by horrifically killing little-about to be born babies.  We have heard of other locations where a minister “serves” at these places.

The Portland, Maine abortion factory was ‘blessed in God’s Name by “Rev.” Marvin Ellison. This pus bag wrote a column for The Press Herald, to defend his abortion advocacy. That Portland abortion chamber aborts babies up to 18 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy, long after they already have heart beats, brain waves, fingers, toes and their own unique fingerprints.

Their nervous systems also are formed and they can feel everything that touches them. They use a device that goes up into the womb, grips a little leg or arm, slice it off, then pull it out to go back in and do it with the other limbs. And these helpless babies SCREAM.

Indeed, one of the butchers who was new to the job, bragged to impress the others, that she slit the throats of the babies so they could not scream. So what did she expect, for her audience to yell BRAVO? Probably.

Micaiah Bilger writing for the newspaper in Augusta, Maine, said that the impostor ‘minister’ described Planned Parenthood’s work as, now get this, “Life Affirming.” Are they all mad?

That gastric accumulation that calls himself “a man of God,” went on to flatulate;“We’re proud to be part of a highly professional and highly caring health care team,” he said of himself and four other volunteer chaplains.”Along with our Planned Parenthood colleagues, we’re committed to showing care and respect for the whole person, including her (or his) physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.”

It gets even nuttier as Ellison sputtered on that he is an abortion supporter because of his Christian faith and values. How’s that again?Then that pile of food that has been eaten and dispelled from the body, then bragged about his influence on patients’ religious views.

Recently Ellison and other “chaplains” hosted a service to bless the Planned Parenthood abortion facility. And Ellison and the other fake chaplains will have to explain all this to God at the White Throne Judgment which they all are facing. How I would like to be there to witness this as the trap doors open.

At that ‘blessings service,’ Ellison burped on by stating: “We believe in its mission (Planned Parenthood) and its life affirming values, As we said during the blessing, ‘We Thank God for Planned Parenthood and for the amazing work you do, day in and day out, with passion, courage, wisdom and grace.

“As chaplains, we recognize that planned Parenthood is called many names. Some of those names are hate-filled, disrespectful and terribly misguided. At the blessing, we concluded the event by saying, “Hear this loud and clear. In the name of all that is holy and good, Planned Parenthood your name is blessed. Each staff member is a blessing to this community and to those for whom you provide health care, education and advocacy. You are the blessing, and we thank God for you.”

These flattering words were flung out to embrace those who most cruelly murder little babies about to be born!  This is nuts!

For Marvin Ellison, that fake minister whom Satan himself ordained: Sir, it would be better for you to leave the ministry NOW, flee the ministry and stop dabbling with Holy things. You have no business handling any sacred objects.

Flee the corrupt ministry you head before it is too late. And this includes any misfits who hang out with you.  You are a mental case, making you and those who associate with you think that what you are doing is service to God. IT IS NOT!

Read the story of Molech in The Bible. There were idols in those days, made of brass in the shape of a being. The ignorant masses bowed down to to this Idol as if he were God. He was known as ‘the fire god.’ Babies and little children were brought to his brass idol, placed on the outstretched hands of it where flames embraced the children who screamed loudly. They were either burned alive, as a sacrifice to please Molech or fell between the outstretched arms to a roaring fire below.

And guess what? To drown out the screams of the innocent children who had done no wrong, they had drums and musicians playing to down out the screams of the babies and children.

We are doing the same things today. And we have many distractions to virtually drown out the screams of the little babies being aborted.

I urge you who follow Ellison to get away from corrupt pastors like him, for the sake of your own souls. And anyone else who has a corrupt pastor like that wretch, get out of that church immediately. There are many great Bible believing churches out there that can be found.

Since the beginning of this column many years ago, I have stated over and over that the world has gone to pieces due to the failure of the pulpits. Ministers have started flirting with the world, others being spotlighted in the newspapers for the wrong reasons. Yes, sin. Careless conduct, being irresponsible, having that drink, all tear down the image we should all have. Again, we are not supposed to be like everybody else.

Preachers have abdicated their leadership position in society by compromising the Word of God, watering down the sin problem, being caught in adultery, misappropriating money.

Since beginning this column years ago, I have stated over and over that the reason the world has gone so wacko is due to the failure of the pulpit. Pastors are not supposed to be ‘one of the guys,’ or he’s just like us.  We are NOT. We have been entrusted with a sacred appointment.

Let us carry that out with honor. Otherwise, preachers like Ellison will pull you down through that trap door with him.

LAST WORDS: Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, aborting approximately 320,000 babies every year. Now that is BABIES, not a fetus.

It’s most recent annual report showed a record income of $1.46 BILLLION for the ‘NON-PROFIT,” with about half a billion dollars coming from the taxpayers.

Any Christian who takes part in this barbarity will indeed go through the trap door and straight into hell. Christians are called to protect and defend the most vulnerable members of society, and today, no one is more vulnerable than a baby in his or her mother’s womb. Indeed, me must protect ALL of God’s living creatures. And Pastors: MAN YOUR PULPITS!

ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY.

Hillary’s New Book Reviews

by Rev.Austin Miles

Hillary has written a book about herself–naming names of those who thwarted her election to the Oval Office as President of The United States. Hillary slipped down Hill with that book project that, she thought, would set all of America straight. LGBT BEWARE!

Her Sponsor, George Soros was so sure that she would be swept into the Oval Office that at his invitation, Hillary spent the weekend with Soros in his Southampton, Long Island mansion, beginning August 9th, 3 months before the election.

Soros had Newsweek Magazine put the ‘Election Day photo’ of Hillary on their cover, with the title, Madam President,  which was released a couple of days before the election. A book store in New York told me about it when the magazine was received.

The fuming began. Her rightful election was sabotaged, saith she, so she later wrote a book telling how this defeat REALLY happened. She would have been elected had the Republicans stopped undermining her.  Pity!

Here are some of the reviews of her book of pity:

“Hillary Clinton’s 506-page memoirs has come out.  So much of her
personality shines through, that in the end, you, too, will want to
sleep with an intern.” ~ Craig Kilborn

“In Hillary Clinton’s new book ‘Living History,’ Hillary details what
it was like meeting Bill Clinton, falling in love with him, getting
married, and living a passionate, wonderful life as husband and wife.
Then on page two, the trouble starts.”
~ Jay Leno

“In the book she says when Bill told her he was having an affair, she
said ‘I could hardly breathe, I was gulping for air.'”  No, I’m sorry,
that’s what Monica said. ~ David Letterman

“Hillary Clinton, our junior senator from New York , announced that she
has no intentions of ever, ever running for office of the President of
the United States .  Her husband, Bill Clinton, is bitterly disappointed. He is crushed. There go his dreams of becoming a two-impeachment family.” ~ David Letterman

“Last night, Senator Hillary Clinton hosted her first party in her new
home in Washington . People said it was a lot like the parties she used
to host at the White House. In fact, even the furniture was the same.”
~ Jay Leno

“CNN found that Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in America .
Women admire her because she’s strong and successful. Men admire her
because she allows her husband to cheat and get away with It.” ~ Jay
Leno

“Hillary Clinton is the junior senator from the great state of New
York . When they swore her in, she used the Clinton family Bible – the
one with only 7 commandments.” ~ David Letterman

And this review by your website host: “That book wasn’t released, it escaped–anyway it will be useful as a door stop.” On the plus side, what she lacks in quality, she makes up in quantity (506 Pages).

Drugs that Heavily Tip the Scales Towards Dementia and Alzheimers


  • Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?
  • *Note: Taken from Health Sciences Institute e-Alert – Melissa Young – 5/4/18

Dear Reader,

By the time you opened your email this morning, an untold number of people (maybe even you) had already taken a type of drug that’s known to heavily tip the scales toward dementia and Alzheimer’s.

These meds are called anticholinergics, a class of pharmaceuticals used to treat so many conditions that even your doctor or pharmacist may not realize how many are out there.

But those who have been paying attention know that this dementia connection is a huge problem, especially for seniors who may be taking multiple meds that fall into this category.

Now, experts have confirmed earlier warnings about what anticholinergics can do to your brain, finding that not only can they up your chances of dementia, but certain ones can do so for decades after you’ve stopped using them!

These drugs may seem entirely disconnected from each other. But they all have one common denominator: a link to “cognitive decline.”

And I would bet that at least one of them is sitting in your medicine cabinet right now.

Here’s how to know for sure… so you know which meds to ditch!


Unintended consequences

In the mainstream media, why is it that most every story about a stray puppy or new ice cream flavor is “breaking news,” but when it comes to something actually important, such as how to safeguard your brain, you don’t hear even a whisper about it?

That is, unless you subscribe to eAlert.

Last year, we told you how a group of Rx and OTC meds with “anticholinergic” activities can double your chance of having a stroke. But that wasn’t the first appearance of a red flag regarding this class of drugs.

The year before that, we sounded the alarm about how these drugs can shrink your brain.

But even that was a follow-up to a 2015 study from the University of Washington School of Pharmacy that found that taking anticholinergics can up your risk of dementia by over 50 percent — and Alzheimer’s by a whopping 63 percent!

When are doctors going to start paying attention to these findings? And what in the world are they waiting for?

In a just-out study, scientists from universities in the UK and Ireland – as well as Indiana’s Purdue University — compared the habits of over 40,000 Brits who had been diagnosed with dementia to hundreds of thousands of others with no known cognitive difficulties.

They found that those who took anticholinergics for a number of conditions — depression, overactive bladder, or Parkinson’s — upped their chances of developing dementia by a hefty 30 percent. All it took was being on one of those meds for at least a year.

If you think about it, who takes those kinds of drugs for under a year? Some, such as antidepressants, can be lifetime commitments.

But it gets worse.

Researchers also discovered that the risk can persist for years — even decades — after you stop taking them. It’s like having a ticking time bomb… in your head!

These meds do their dirty work by blocking an important chemical messenger in your brain, a neurotransmitter called “acetylcholine,” and as I said, there are loads of drugs that fall into this group.

For example, there’s diphenhydramine, a.k.a. the popular allergy med Benadryl. You’ll also find that active ingredient included in Advil PM, Bayer PM, Nytol, Sominex, and Tylenol PM. Then there’s oxybutynin (sold over the counter as Oxytrol for bladder issues), the brand Chlor-Trimeton for allergies, and Dramamine used for nausea and motion sickness.

The acid blocker Tagamet is also in this group, as is the OTC allergy drug Zyrtec. Also included are the antidepressants Paxil and Brisdelle (which can be prescribed for hot flashes!), Imodium to treat diarrhea, and the antipsychotic Clozaril.

And that’s just the tip of this very large and dangerous iceberg!

The bigger story here is that you won’t find a warning about any of this on the packaging of any anticholinergics you may be taking… even if you use a magnifying glass to read every single side effect!

You may not even know if a med you’re on falls into this dangerous drug class, because that’s not listed on the packaging either.

By now, we should all have learned that just because a drug is commonplace or readily available without a prescription, that doesn’t mean it’s safe to take.

Many of these anticholinergics are for allergies, which means that they’re going to be selling like hotcakes right about now. But instead of turning to Benadryl or Chlor-Trimeton, why not try natural remedies like butterbur and goldenseal?

If you need something for nausea, try sniffing some rubbing alcohol from a cotton pad or ball instead of taking Dramamine. Research just published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine found that kind of “aroma therapy” to be over three times more effective than a prescription drug for nausea!

As the lead author in that study said, the “powerful message” here is that “there are simple, safe ways to deal with symptoms.”

And for any drugs that you’re currently taking — prescription or OTC — ask your doctor or pharmacist whether it falls into this group of anticholinergics, and if so, find out what other options you may have.

To Staying Mentally Sharp,

 

Melissa Young

Pastors to Blame for America’s Downfall!!

by Rev. Austin Miles

Back in the 40’s church pastors had a certain mystique for those who knew who they were and observed them. Vandalism to any church was considered unthinkable.

First of all, a church was considered a sacred place even to those who did not believe. Churches kept their doors open 24 hours a day so people could come in at any hour and pray or simply think quietly. Even the hardest of hearts would not even THINK of vandalizing or stealing from a church.

What was the secret of this invisible protective power surrounding the pastor and even an empty church that kept everyone on their best behavior?  Simple, it was the consistent moral behavior of those devoted men at all times. 

Preachers, please take note.

We are not supposed to be like very body else. We are set apart. We don’t yell and scream at someone, ogle a female, or have a drink to prove that we’re just one of the guys, or ‘just like everyone else.’  That would be hurtful to any minister, especially this one, if that were said about me. No we are not, nor were we intended to be ‘just like everyone else.’

Once I caught a member of my church yelling and screaming at a cashier demanding a discount he was not entitled to. He was dismissed from attending my church. Another time I caught a member ogling and following a scantily clad homeless woman heading toward the river. I knew this man and what he was up to, and when he heard my voice boom out, “What are you doing?” he knew that I knew exactly what he was doing. He could never come back to my church. Members were required to exhibit absolute integrity at all times.

People will try to tempt you to be “one of the guys.” Don’t fall for it. Years ago when I was in my preteens, a very popular pastor in town was Reverend Zapp (first name lost in the dustpan of history), a Methodist minister back when that church was a church.

Rev. Zapp became a member of the Shriners, beginning with the Masonic Lodge. I personally was not in favor of that since the Masons take a sideways approach to Christianity. But he was a member. One day he walked in the Shriners’ Club, and the whole room came alive to greet him as he came through the doors. Then some wise acre said, “Hey preacher, how ‘bout buying us all a drink.”  “Sure,” Rev. Zapp replied, “Bartender, give everyone here a cup of coffee….on me.”

Everybody of course laughed but with that laugh came new respect. So he still remained, ‘set apart.’

With the respect of preachers and the churches and the positive way they presented themselves in public, the public itself made sure their own conduct was above reproach, wherever they went. They didn’t want the town preacher to see them going into a burlesque show or a bar. This rubs off on the community.

Everyone had a respect for the pastors, since they no doubt walked with God. They never compromised, but were always approachable and friendly. They lived what they represented.

And Christians, YOU are sometimes the only Bible anyone reads. With that mystique, simply for living your testimony and stated beliefs, this also creates a bit of fear along with the respect. In other words, people are often challenged simply by being in the vicinity of a minister. And that is not a bad thing if it keeps us on our toes.

A minister’s presence should be a healthy challenge to everyone they interact with. Indeed, notice how any man who is a respectable man with unwavering integrity who moves in confidence and in authority at all times will automatically be shown courtesy and respect.

I remember back in high school, when young men did not know what to do with their raging hormones, and almost every girl was mentally undressed by these little bucks on the prowl.  That is, except for one whom I will never forget.

His name was Jimmy Sanders. He was a very good-looking Irish boy who played basketball, had a beautiful tenor Irish voice and sang in assemblies and special programs.

Once I walked into the gym as the players were practicing. A very cute curvy girl in shorts, walked by the team. Everyone looked her up and down fantasizing ‘what it would be like with her.’ That is with the exception of one handsome young man,Jimmy Sanders, who also went to church every week. He kept his eyes straight ahead with no lewd looks.  And what’s more, he was very popular and well liked by everybody.

Yes, it impressed me too, very much so. I too wanted to be known and respected. And here was a living illustration as to how to achieve that. And Jimmy Sanders was an example to me all my school life.  He would become a professional singer last we heard.

I do know that back then, in the 40’s, life was much more peaceful and enjoyable. Rarely was a preacher busted for not keeping his zipper activated, misusing church funds or being seen with nefarious people and taking part in their activities.  And certainly not partnering with Planned Parenthood, a horrific baby killing factory.

And yes, this was the way it was until the 1960’s, when Billionaire Communist George Soros stirred up the “question-authority” movement, which promoted free love everywhere and drugs to get smashed out of reality. Until then the churches had healthy attendances on Sunday mornings and any other time a church activity was planned.

The 60’s uproar did not just happen spontaneously, Think about it. How could every teenager to early 20’s, all over America, suddenly, at the same time, get the same idea, to leave their walk-up apartments and cover every city and town with chaos like a huge blanket? Greenwich Village became Hippie Town.

This was not a spontaneous movement, but was all carefully planned, organized and implemented. People were PLACED in the various churches to sabotage the pastor and his message along with the people of the congregation. Yep, money talks.

Are you aware that years ago, George Soros managed to get inside the Vatican? Yes he did, is still there, and has been shaping the Catholic Church ever since.

How else could one explain Pope Francis?  Nobody had any idea who he was until suddenly he was paraded to the center of the College of Cardinals who had ‘voted’ him in as the new pope. So it is true. Money not only talks but conquers.

This writer had absolutely no knowledge of him even being in The College of Cardinals. He was placed there by Soros.  This new ‘pope’ then said to us, now get this, “the first thing I intend to do is to Redistribute the Wealth.”  That is right out of the Book of Marx.

It did not take long to realize that the so-called Pope Francis is an out-and-out Communist.  He has scuttled many of the sacred Catholic doctrines and recently told a young homosexual who had come to him; “God made you homosexual and that you should simply enjoy and accept your life.”

The churches in Europe are some of the most beautiful in the world. However I never saw one with more than a hand-full of people on Sunday mornings. The Salvation Army Church in Oslo, was one of the only ones that was full.

The other churches don’t worry about collections. A mandatory church tax is imposed on everyone to keep the churches open. But the pastors, were highly respected, and when I spent time in Europe (before the Muslim invasion) the people were well behaved.

In Switzerland, a woman pointed out a man going into a store, and stated to me that he was a pastor. She went on to say that he was very well educated and well-respected in the community. He was invited to speak to the schools and other gatherings because of his intellect and wisdom.

Meanwhile, churches in America were mostly filled on Sunday mornings. Then, the 60’s brought in disrespect for ALL authority and especially targeted the churches.  And they were able to persuade pastors that their messages are no longer relevant for today, that we are living in a whole new age, and that his messages needed to be updated or the church will go downhill.

The pastor’s began watering down the Gospel so as to not offend anyone with the sin question. The pastors began acting in worldly ways, not living like a Pastor in words, deeds or overall carriage. And crime began to rise. To be conned into “fitting in with the world,” torpedoed their moral authority.  This of course, disturbed citizens, causing their respect for pastors to diminish. And as they coasted downhill, they picked up speed.

This was fatal. When the respect was there due to the proper conduct of all pastors, crime was not a major event. When pastors were persuaded to be like everyone else, and began acting like it, the crime rates began to rise, indeed even churches began to be vandalized and robbed. Church doors had to be double locked when no services were scheduled.

Out and out public attacks on Christianity, the church and Jesus Christ Himself began to climb with a new boldness of atheists, the sexually confused and criminals,

Pastors’ began promoting sexual deviance, defiling marriage as proclaimed by God and began, of all things, doing “wedding ceremonies” for same sex couples. They allowed LGBT folk to become workers in the church, even ordaining some as pastors. All of this which angers God.

Then some joined in providing “blessing services” to the baby murder factory, Planned Parenthood, which brutally kills babies about to be born who are simply “inconvenient” for the parents.

More and more pastors were caught in adultery with many pastors being charged with sexual harassment by…women…and men.  This made a splotch on the whole church and pastors were no longer a figure of respect and authority. People in general became argumentative, rude, and disrespectful to one another.

Life morphed into a chaotic free-for-all.  Lawlessness was able to take over and kept all people on edge. Confused people became weak. The Soros’ Communists’ became bolder as church attendance began to drop away. A peaceful everyday life evolved into violent unrest. Any why? Pastors had simply abdicated their authority, integrity, moral compass and then manipulated the Gospel.

This is why our lives are what they are today. Had the pastors been totally dedicated to the truth of God and held their pulpits throughout the years, and not been so weak as to be influenced by people like George Soros, America, would be a much better place today.

So the headline reads: Pastors to Blame for America’s Downfall and that is no exaggeration. This is exactly what has taken place. Pastors would not man their pulpits, were not as totally dedicated as they should have been. How could Soros convince them to water down the Gospel of Jesus Christ?  Money, women, and recognition. The greatest weakness of mankind. Three of the devil’s most effective weapons.

Most pastors today are corrupt. Yes, MOST. However we still have enough true ministers that we call, Remnant Pastors, to turn this series of events around.These are Faithful, true men of God. They can be found. Let us strive to get together, and work together to reclaim our pulpits and drive out the fakes.

This CAN be done. CHARGE!

Wendy Wasserman Schiff, or Whoever, and Hostile Anti-American Democrats

BY JIM O’NEILL

This [Democrat involvement with the Awan family] been going on since the early to mid-2000s, and it is shocking how terrible the Democrats are with military matters of national security.  This is abhorrent on just about every conceivable level.  If they slow-walk this investigation to oblivion then I believe that…if all of these people get away, if there are no negative repercussions I genuinely believe that the mainstream acceptance of the rule of law in America will die a strange and sad death.  If this goes nowhere then the republic, currently hanging by a thread, is going to fall.

Stefan Molyneux “The Truth About the Awan Family Democrat IT Scandal

Tarl Warwick (Styxhexenhammer666) Trump Goes Nuclear, Uses 4d Chess with Wendy Wasserman Schultz

Tarl Warick nails it with his explanation that President Trump will occasionally (and wisely) play dumb in order to get his adversaries to underestimate him and/or unwittingly do his bidding.  You don’t think that the multi-billionaire author of “The Art of the Deal” uses every trick in the book?  Of course he does – and encouraging his opponents to underestimate him is just one of the many tools available to our deal-making, results-oriented POTUS.  Dumb like a fox, as my mom used to say.

Be that as it may, this article is chiefly concerned with the rabid anti-American stance that has become almost the default position among so many liberals.  They will, as a matter of course, vehemently deny (usually) that their stance is anti-American, but the facts speak for themselves.  All you need to do is pay attention to the Democratic representatives in Congress and you will see what I mean.  They are professional parasites, political grifters living off the taxpayer’s dime while biting the hand that feeds them and telling us that “You didn’t make that!” You didn’t earn that!”  Their brazenness, their gall, their arrogance and ignorance, is breathtaking.  Screw those pusillanimous parasitic poseurs.

In addition to being herd-like indoctrinated sheeple, liberals tend to be spiritually stunted secularists who have a death grip on their ego because it’s all they have.  And when the ego is all you have to support your various positions and opinions you simply cannot afford to be wrong.  A spiritually shriveled ego-driven personality is by definition a fearful personality (i.e. angry personality) that dreads being wrong, about anything, because the odds are so stacked against them.  Think of it: one versus infinity, one finite human ego versus the infinite universe.  Terrible odds, losing odds for sure – which is one of the more notable causes of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) – “I CAN’T be wrong!”  Take a fearful/angry, spiritually stunted, ego-driven leftist drone indoctrinated into a semi-comatose daze by constant anti-Trump media propaganda – shake ‘n’ stir – and voila, TDS!  By this point I am convinced that TDS (on the left and right) is truly a mental/emotional pathology, it is not an act.  But I digress.

Dinesh D’Souza has noted that the overall tone of America’s culture is increasingly one of “brutality, incivility, intimidation, and smoke ‘n’ mirrors propaganda” – due primarily to the left-wing acolytes of Saul Alinsky spreading his agi-prop meme of victimhood, rage, and resentment.  In addition, Alinsky’s most famous devotees, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, took Alinsky’s agenda a radical step further:

Obama and Hillary developed a serious shift from Alinsky.  Essentially Alinsky was an outside man…Alinsky used the outsider shakedown technique [learned from the Chicago mafia].  Obama and Hillary went one better, they said “Wait a minute, we don’t have to be outside threatening to bring the government to a halt, threatening to shut down a corporation – what if we run the corporation?  What if we run the government?  Then we can use the weapons of the state against our enemies.” 

Dinesh D’Souza Dinesh D’Souza mops the floor with Saul Alinsky’s son in C-SPAN debate

So began the Democratic practice of weaponizing various government agencies and using them against conservative individuals, groups, and values.  Think Lois Lerner and the IRS, Comey and company at the FBI, former Director of Intelligence James Clapper,  Brennan at the CIA, Clinton at State, Holder and Lynch at the DOJ, and so on, and so on, and so on.  “Brutal, uncivil, and intimidating” is putting things mildly.

Which brings me around to Wendy Wasserman Schiff, or whoever, and the AWAN scandal.  You know of it right?  With the massive coverage it has received from the media how could you not?  Just kidding of course – the media has been doing its best to make sure that this atrocious scandal never sees the light of day.

Reportedly around 80 Democratic members of Congress utilized members of the extended Awan family as IT specialists under very peculiar circumstances.  The whole scenario stinks to high heaven – in August of last year the “New York Post” reported that “’This is a massive, massive scandal,’ a senior US official familiar with the widening probe told The Post.”  Uh huh…and just what is the current status of this “massive, massive scandal?”  Damned if I know – the whole case seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.  If you are interested, the link provided after the Stefan Molyneux quote that opens this article will fill you in on the whole sorry saga.

We the people have had it with the stonewalling, slow-walking tactics of the DOJ, FBI, and the rest of the federal bureaucracies.  Time to fish or cut bait, s—t or get off the pot.  Jeff Sessions, are you comatose or what?  DOJ – anybody in there?  Damn, where is America’s justice system?

We the People echo the sentiments recently expressed by Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL) below.  If you ask me, we need some blitzkrieg-style surgical strikes combined with an overwhelming surge of “shock ‘n’ awe” justice being dropped on the nest of vipers hissing around our nation’s heart – the sooner the better.  The fate of the republic hangs in the balance, for if America’s rule of law fails, America will fall – and make no mistake, America’s rule of law is failing, big time.

The political elite are not immune from the rule of law, and those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as any other American. If former officials, including Hillary Clinton and James Comey, broke the law then they need to be held accountable. We ask that the Department of Justice move swiftly to ensure that violations of federal statutes by high officials are identified and prosecuted.”

Congressman Ron DeSantis (R-FL).

 

 

 

 

 

 

High Funeral Costs Can Kill Ya 


by Rev. Austin Miles            

Bob and Geri Boyd are the knowledgeable and cordial hosts of the radio program,”Issues in Education,” which is aired on stations nation wide. The Boyds’ send me vital information from time to time along with very funny things that give me my morning chuckle.

This, just received this morning, would be considered VITAL INFORMATION. Too often we fail to prepare for things that inevitably come, being too distracted by things of the world. Bob and Geri also have an excellent news letter that keeps one on top of the things that affect us all. For further info, check this site:

             You Can Limit Death’s FINANCIAL Costs 

 This was in the Wall Street Journal and something most Folks don’t know. This man’s wife died and he was shocked by the unknown rules.

There are 5 Things:

 Issue one:   When we opened our own checking and savings accounts, we never named beneficiaries. He had assumed, incorrectly, that our accounts would simply transfer to the other in case of death. The banker who opened the accounts never suggested otherwise.

With a named beneficiary, her accounts would have simply been folded into mine. Instead, I had to hire a lawyer – at $ 465 an hour – to petition the court to name me as the executor of her estate.

I needed this power to transfer her accounts. Filing costs in New York city for the necessary document was $ 1, 286.00   The running bill for the lawyer stands at $ 7,402. 00 and I expect it to rise.

He also needed the documents for the companies that managed her retirement accounts and a mutual fund, because, as at the bank, we never named a beneficiary. By the way, this paperwork also required signature guarantees or a notary seal, which can take up an afternoon.

Issue Two:  The highly charged question regarding funeral and burial. Last summer when he was told his wife would not survive her illness, he tried to raise the issue of burial with her. She refused to have the conversation, but he quietly went ahead and purchased a plot of graves in the cemetery in Wisconsin where his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents are buried. That was something he actually did right.

I had to employ two funeral homes – one in New York and one in Wisconsin – for her body to make the journey out there. All told, he spent $ 46,359 to cover funeral expenses, graves, transportation, a headstone and a basic casket.

You don’t want to have to make this decision at the time someone close to you dies.  You simply will not be thinking straight.

Issue Three :  Their health insurance plan covered the long hospital stays and doctors visits. However, shortly after his wife died, he still received bills, even though their deductibles and copay had long since been covered. HE PAID THEM IMMEDIATELY , WHICH WAS A MISTAKE !  He was incorrectly billed and he has been fighting the hospitals and insurance company since January to get a refund, even though everyone agrees the bills were incorrect.  Before you pay any medical bills, make a simple call and determine their legitimacy. Mistakes are constant:  The systems are so complicated, even people in these offices don’t always understand the intricacies.

Issue Four :  His wife had two life insurance policies – one through her work and the other we purchased privately. The former was handled quickly and efficiently by her job and a check arrived almost immediately. Although the insurance company sent me a check for her private policy soon after her death, it took three months of constant calls and emails to determine a refund of the premium he had already paid for three months past her death.  He kept getting wrong information from the company, because the people he dealt with didn’t understand it themselves.

Issue Five : Over the coarse of his wife’s working life- from her first job at a fast food restaurant to medicine-she paid more than $100,000 to Social Security. Since she died at age 60, and their19 year old daughter is one year past the age of receiving a monthly benefit, all the money has simply disappeared into the lockbox in Washington. Nothing we can do about this one.

Finally, there is the major psychological trauma of grief. Most people believe death will never intrude on their lives and when it does, we will be so old and decrepit that it won’t much matter.

Trust him on this, – even when its been expected for a while, it still shocks deeply.

There is absolutely no way you can prepare yourself for the shattering heartbreak of loss. When it did come to him, he found the support of friends, family and faith to be invaluable.

Amazingly, that cost nothing.

Are We the People Fighting Political Ideologues, Corrupt Crooks, Meanspirited Idiots, or all the Above?

BY JIM O’NEILL

A nation can survive its fools…but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly…[but] the traitor appears not a traitor…he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.  Cicero (106 BC – 43 BC)

I used to believe that constitutional conservatives are fighting an ideological battle against political opponents – but I’m not so sure anymore.  It appears increasingly obvious to me that we are in fact engaged in a battle with power-hungry, ruthless, greedy, ill-informed opportunistic morons (sometimes bright morons, but morons nonetheless) – treasonous, self-righteous, scum-sucking bottom dwellers whose pretentions to moral authority make me want to puke.

They wrap their corruption up in fine sounding slogans and rationalizations but strip away the verbal razzmatazz and you are left with naked ugly ambition and greed.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Call it Marxism, call it communism, call it fascism, call it globalism, call it what you will – it all comes down to a power grab by a narcissistic elite bent on ruling We the People using whatever means it takes.  And they have no interest at all in playing by the rules.

Hillary Clinton is guilty as sin, and we the people have been hep to the corruption and coverup for years.  And who is this mysterious former POTUS who goes by the nom de plume Barack Hussein Obama?  He could be anyone, he could be from anywhere.  I am so sick of the abuse heaped on those of us who know we are being lied to and yet are constantly told to shut up and not be conspiratorial.

Well f—k them, and f—k their corrupt lying media sycophants.  They disgust me…as they should anyone with decency, honor, and integrity.  I have been studying the political left for some years now, and what I see is a collection of whiny losers – sociopathic professional victims who lie, cheat, and squirm their way into positions of power where they loudly proclaim their moral superiority for all to hear.  Again, f—k them, I’m so tired of their odious, dishonest, self-righteous bloviating that I could scream.  They lie constantly, and then lie about their lying, and then pout and act shocked when you call them on their c—p.

They celebrate and promote international thugs and asinine government policies with proven track records of ineptitude, failure, and murder.  Where will the next “killing fields” be?  Do these idiots not know how to read?  Have they not glanced through “The Black Book of Communism” (published through Harvard University Press no less)?  Such ignorance!  And they pat each other on the back, give each other “prestigious awards,” and remain ignorant buffoons (dangerous buffoons) trapped within their hothouse echo-chamber of blather and bombast.

They actively seek to harm and diminish America at every turn.  It’s a win/win situation for them, they can’t lose.  If their hairbrained schemes somehow work they crow about their supposed genius, and if they fail, well then that hurts America, which is all to the good right?  Think Cloward/Piven and its numerous diabolical offshoots.

I call bulls—t on all of it, and say it is well past time that we the people stopped treating these duplicitous, traitorous crooks with anything approaching respect, and started acting toward these professional parasites with the disdain and disgust that they so richly deserve.  The corruption in DC is so deep-seated, so pervasive, and so accepted as the norm, that grand juries, trials, and prison time is what’s needed, not more hail-fellow-well-met collegial claptrap.  America is still very much teetering on the brink, and this is no time for half measures.  Time to turn up the heat on all burners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The most disgusting thing in the bathroom isn’t what you think

* Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from The Daily Dose with Jack Harrison – 4/23/18
Maybe I’m a little old-fashioned, but I don’t leave the house without a hankie — and not those little pocket squares the fancy types use as decoration.

A hankie is handy when you’ve got to honk — and it’s even handier in restrooms.

And when you see the latest news, you’ll want to carry one around too, because under no circumstances should you ever dry your hands in the germ-blowing machines that are replacing paper towels everywhere.

It’s not just that they collect bacteria from partially washed hands and provide them with nice, warm, damp homes that are even better than Petri dishes for growing and spreading.

And it’s not just that they then blow those germs right at you when you use the machine (or even right in your face if it’s one of those ugly little “Air Blades”).

No — although both of those are reason enough never to use them, the latest news is the worst of all. It’s so gross that I want to warn you right now in case you’re eating.

Ready for it?

Hand dryers aren’t just spraying any ol’ random germs at you.

They’re spraying POOP germs — right into your hands and maybe even into your face!

BLEECCCHHHHHH!!!!!

In any bathroom — even the one in your home — flushing the toilet creates a “plume” of aerosolized particles. Whatever you’re flushing down also goes up, out and around the room in an invisible mist.

Call it one reason to listen to your wife and ALWAYS put the lid down (and do it before flushing).

In public restrooms, however, there is no lid — so, there’s ALWAYS a plume.

And considering the amount of action some of those toilets see, you can bet that plume goes all over the room.

The new study finds that hand driers seem to suck up and store the water droplets from that plume along with whatever filthy bacteria are in them, collecting them in a “reservoir” of poo germs.

Special plates that collect germs were placed at the hand driers in 36 different bathrooms. After just half a minute, they collected between 18 and 60 colonies of bacteria.

Collection plates placed at a random spot in the restroom, on the other hand, collected an average of just one spore.

The researchers said these germs are generally harmless, just gross.

Maybe for them.

But for older folks with weaker immune systems, a poo spray from a public restroom could be too much to take.

Use paper towels instead… and if there are none available, make like Jack and use a hankie.

Or, at least wipe your hands on your jeans. Just don’t stick ’em in those machines!

Not just blowing hot air,
Jack Harrison
