Text Messages Have Been Ripping You Off…And Making Your Hemoglobin Leak

31 12 2008

From Gizmodo via NYT:

“Cost to telco: $0.00. Cost to customers: $0.20. Number of text messages sent per year (worldwide): 2.5 trillion. We’ll leave you to do the math. Suffice it to say that  printer ink market now looks like a bargain.”

And this news that Cellphones cause tumors, hemoglobin leaks, kidney stones, and heart disease.

On second thought…DON’T EVER CALL ME AGAIN!

Israeli researchers in the study found that regular cellphones users are a whopping 50 percent more likely than non-users to get brain tumors. Another Interphone study looking at the UK and Scandinavia found a 40 percent greater tumor risk in people who’ve used cellphones for over 10 years, though on the bright side, nothing scary for people who’ve used them for less than a decade.

During the study, scientists exposed samples of blood to varying degrees of microwave radiation (including levels well below those emitted by cellphones) for periods between ten to 60 hours. No matter how you cut it, the result was hemoglobin leakage (which just sounds nasty). Obviously, heart disease is the most serious condition of the two, but I can tell you from experience that you don’t want any part of a kidney stone either. Those things could make even Chuck Norris cry like a little girl.

PopSci’s assessment of the gravity of the situation is close to spot-on—definitive proof that cellphones cause cancer would probably be the along the same lines as discovering that tobacco causes cancer, but you know, huger, since almost everyone uses a cellphone, from pre-schoolers to grandmas. I guess it’s a good thing I rarely use my iPhone for talking. How would you react if cellphones definitely caused cancer? [Pop Sci]

So there you have it.

Farrakhan: “These Satanic Jews Have Taken Over BET”

30 12 2008

One of Obama’s “neighbors,” the man who called the President-elect, “America’s blessing” is at it again with his virulent anti-Semitism.   Here’s the disgusting video at worldstarhiphop.com.  Apparently those satanic Jews even stole black folks’ “hair product companies.”

Since we all know we can’t discuss whether Obama likes Farrakhan, we’ll leave questions of, what Farrakhan sees in Obama, aside.


“But you gonna take Denzell… One of our BRIGHTEST stars… That you gave an OSCAR to… NOT FOR THE MOVIE MALCOLM X [Editor’s Note: You mean that guy you helped kill?]… Not for the movie THE BONE COLLECTOR… Yoooooooouuuuuu gave him an Oscar for playing a corRUPted black policeman.  …You didn’t give Halle Berry an Oscar for her many wonderful roles… [Editor’s Note: …such as?] But you gave her an Oscar for her nasty little role with a white man.”

JewTube To Show Depravity Of Palestinians. Will YouTube Censor As Usual?

30 12 2008

From Newsbusters

In an obvious attempt to counter the typically anti-Israeli sentiment prevalent throughout the international media whenever Israel defends itself, the Israel Defense Forces launched its own YouTube channel Monday.

As most impartial Americans are aware, old and new media were used against Israel in 2006 to foment international criticism of its attacks on Lebanon not the least of which was a Reuters photographer caught doctoring pictures.

With this in mind, as reported by the Jerusalem Post Tuesday, the IDF plans on being much more proactive this time in making the international community completely aware of what’s really going on with Israel’s recent military response in the Gaza Strip (video example embedded right):


What good does it do to show the same Palestinian on 6 or 7 different gurneys and IDF videos of rocket launchers located on kindergarten playgrounds?

Over at Israel Matzav:

YouTube takes down IDF’s most popular videos

Yesterday, the IDF opened a YouTube account.

I just got an email indicating that because YouTube has removed the IDF’s most popular videos, the IDF spokesperson’s office has opened an account at LiveLeak instead.

Noah Pollak has more.

This was apparently too much for YouTube, which moments ago removed several videos from the IDF’s channel, including the most-watched video, which showed a group of Hamas goons being blown up in an air strike as they loaded Katyusha missiles onto a truck. The point of such footage, as if it needed to be said, is not to revel in violence — it is to show the legitimacy of Israeli self-defense.

The rank double-standard that YouTube has applied to Israel is disturbing. YouTube hosts all manner of similar footage — much of it far more gory than the grainy infrared images posted by the IDF — of U.S. air strikes. Why is YouTube capitulating to those who do not wish for Israel to be able to tell its side of the story?

Why am I not surprised?
In any event, LiveLeak is much more willing to post non-PC material, and I will try to do my part to get the word out.

The Man With No Regard For The Law

30 12 2008

Forgetting the fact that he is ignoring about two dozen lawsuits that could be easily routed, it’s pretty clear one of Obama’s expertise is in the field of exploiting loopholes.


Here he is illegally disposing of the “typical white person,” 2 months after she died.

Think this might make national news if it was Bush?
