Fluoride spill at water facility burns through parking lot cement |

The Vigilant Citizen

March 30th, 2011

To fully understand the destructive power of a substance, sometimes a strong visual is the best way to proceed. A spill of a highly abrasive chemical, Hydrofluorosilicic acid, at a water facility in Illinois literally burned through the concrete. Interesting fact: this chemical is directly added to drinking water as fluoride. Another interesting fact: adding fluoride to drinking water is totally and completely unnecessary.  Why is it there? To prevent “tooth decay” (it was however proven ineffective by numerous studies, mainly because the fluoride in water is ingested and not directly applied on teeth). What about brain decay? Fluoride actually accelerates it. Well, that’s what the dumbing-down of society is all about.

Japanese radiation reaches Alabama

By Dana Beyerle Montgomery Bureau Chief | Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 3:30 a.m.

MONTGOMERY | Trace amounts of radiation from the ongoing Japanese nuclear plant crisis have shown up in Alabama, the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday.

Radioactive isotopes from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, which was damaged during the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, have been detected in air filters at monitoring sites in Alabama and eight other states and Pacific islands.

“This is slightly above (normal) background … and far below health concerns,” EPA spokeswoman Davina Marraccini said in a telephone interview.

The EPA said that detailed filter analyses from 12 RadNet air monitor locations, including one in Montgomery, produced trace amounts of “radioactive isotopes consistent with the Japanese nuclear incident.”

The 12 monitoring sites are in Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Washington state, Guam, Saipan and the Northern Mariana Islands.

“Some of the filter results show levels slightly higher than those found by EPA monitors last week and a Department of Energy monitor the week before,” the EPA said.

Sixth study in recent months links mercury in flu shots to brain damage, autism

NaturalNews

by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer | Monday, March 28, 2011

The toxic effects of the mercury, also known in vaccines as Thimerosal, have once again been confirmed, this time by researchers from the University of Brazil. Marking the sixth major study in recent months to condemn the use of mercury in medicine, the new study reveals that mercury causes serious brain damage, and is linked to autism and other developmental diseases in children and Alzheimer’s disease in adults.

Dr. Jose Dorea and his colleagues conducted an extensive, peer-reviewed analysis of various studies and available information in major databases that address the effects of low-dose Thimerosal, or ethylmercury, on neural tissue and behavior. They found conclusively that Thimerosal accumulates in brain tissue, negatively affects brain development, and harms brain cells.

‘Obamacare’ is a failed experiment

‘American people are going to overpay,’ says John Thune. | AP PhotoClose
By SEN. JOHN THUNE | 3/23/11 4:41 AM EDT

It has been one year since Obamacare was signed into law.

This is the same law about which then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” It is the same law that Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues jammed through Congress. The same unpopular law that led to Democrats losing control of the House.

After a year of learning what is in the law — and seeing its effect on families, small businesses and our economy — it is now clear that Obamacare is a failed experiment. Sadly, this failure was predictable and very expensive.

When Sen. Barack Obama was running for president, he repeatedly promised that he was going to reduce “every family’s premiums by as much as $2,500.” We were supposed to see these savings by the end of 2012.

Despite these promises, the amount individuals and families pay for health care and insurance continues to rise. Average premiums for individual plans, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, are predicted to increase by $2,100 per family over the next five years under the law.

Instead of receiving the $2,500 reduction promised, families will be paying more and more for their health insurance, thanks in no small part to the new government mandates.

Radiation detected in Massachusetts rainwater as Fukushima crisis worsens

March 28, 2011

The Fukushima crisis continues to worsen by the day, with nuclear experts around the world finally realizing and admitting we’ve all been lied to. “I think maybe the situation is much more serious than we were led to believe,” said Najmedin Meshkati of the University of Southern California, in a Reuters report (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011…). That same article revealed that recent radiation readings at Fukushima show “contamination 100,000 times normal in water at reactor No. 2 and 1,850 times normal in the nearby sea.”

Massachusetts rainwater has also been found to be contaminated with low levels of radiation from Fukushima, indicating just how widespread the radioactive fallout has become. It’s not just the West Coast of North America that’s vulnerable, in other words: even the East Coast could receive dangerous levels of fallout if Fukushima suffers a larger release of radioactive material into the air.

Healthcare Expert Capretta: Obamacare Is Sick Law

NewsMax | By Henry J. Reske and Ashley Martella | Monday, 28 Mar 2011 12:25 PM

President Barack Obama’s highly touted healthcare reform law offers bad medicine at higher costs for patients, healthcare expert James Capretta tells Newsmax.TV.

Obamacare will propel rationed services, limit Medicare coverage options for seniors, and create a huge new bureaucracy to run it, says Capretta, co-author of a new book, “Why Obamacare Is Wrong for America.”

In other words, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act signed into law a year ago March 23 doesn’t live up to its name, because it will do neither, Capretta said during the exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV.

“Rationing occurs when the government pays a very low rate for a service so low that the suppliers of the service no longer are willing to supply it so they leave the marketplace,” said Capretta, who was the top budget official for healthcare during the George W. Bush administration. “So, people then have fewer options to go see and get that service. That’s what’s happening under this law.

Top Ten Things Obama Never Told You About Obamacare

From Americans For Tax Reform on Wednesday, March 23, 2011 9:26 AM

1. Did you know that . . . since Jan. 1 of this year (2011), you cannot use your flex-account at work (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) to purchase over-the-counter medicines?

2. Did you know that . . . since July 1 of last year (2010), Americans have been paying a 10 percent excise tax on all indoor tanning services?

3. Did you know that . . . starting in 2018, if your health insurance is “too good” or considered a “Cadillac” plan, then you will incur a new 40 percent tax on your health plan?

4. Did you know that . . . Obamacare has 21 new or higher taxes in it, totaling over $500 billion in increased taxes going to the government over 10 years?

5. Did you know that . . . beginning in 2014, individuals and families that do not purchase “qualifying”  — as defined by federal bureaucrats — health insurance will be forced to pay a yearly tax penalty?

6. Did you know that . . . 7 tax hikes in Obamacare directly break President Obama’s “firm pledge” not to raise any form of taxes on individuals making less than $200,000 per year and families making less than $250,000 per year?

7. Did you know that . . . the capital gains tax rate under Obamacare will rise to 23.8 percent starting in 2012? That is a 59 percent increase from its current rate.

8. Did you know that . . . in 2013, those Americans facing the highest medical bills and the least ability to pay for them will find their ability to deduct medical expenses is further limited (medical expenses must be reduced by 10 percent of income under Obamacare, rather than current law’s 7.5 percent)

9. Did you know that . . . beginning in 2014, businesses with over 50 employees will be forced to offer health coverage for everyone, or pay a hefty tax for each employee?

10. Did you know that . . . in 2013, Obamacare caps the amount individuals and families can put in their flexible savings accounts at $2500? Currently there is no cap and these accounts are used for a myriad of health expenses including paying upwards of $14,000 in tuition to special needs schools for some parents?
