New Diet Pill

Was just watching CNN and they had a report of a new FDA approved over-the-counter diet pill, that will go on market in mid-June. CNN interviewed a doctor about the pill and she talked about all sorts of stuff, but what grabbed my attention when she said that the people taking it should start eating healthy, getting exercise and such. Will it be a breakthrough in the War on Obesity?

Well, think about this–if you change your diet and eat healthy and get regular exercise–why would you need a pill? Would not those changes do the trick without an expensive bottle of pills?

Just thinking.


Has anyone but me noticed that the Pope, if he wore a dark cloak with a hood, would look alot like the Emperor on Star Wars?

Just an observation for 23/05/07

Also they are saying that Viagra may help prevent jetlag. So you might not be overly tired but part of your anatomy would be up and ready. How can one sleep with that problem?

Lebanon–Part II

As I reported earlier–Lebanon is burning again! This time it is interesting, the US indirectly support Fatah al-Islam in an attempt to confront Hezbollah. Now Hezbollah is supporting the government in the stand off with the militants. Hey! I can make up this stuff!

So the question now is, if Hezbollah is supporting the government and the US is a supporter of the government, are they now “good guys”? If so, what of Israel? they still have a beef with Hezbollah?

I recently read a book, no really, titled Samson Blinded by Obadiah Shoher, it is an Machiavellian look at the Israel-Palestine situation. One of his observations is that the world “should not discourage Arabs from killing one another”. I would say that this seems tom be the plan all along. For as soon as one small fire gets extinguished another breaks out and when it is analyzed the US or Israel or both are involved on either side or sometimes boths sides. Playing each end against the middle.

OMG! What a great foreign policy ploy!



A New Terrorism Plan

It would appear that the US is ratching up its plans for the US and its War on Terror.

The US government and Washington elites are aggressively ramping up their “war on terrorism” rhetoric and propaganda, stoking fear and paranoia in order to bolster their war agenda, and reinvigorate the mass public perception of new and growing “homegrown terrorism” threats to the US homeland.

The next phase of America’s war abroad (under the management of a post-Bush neocon/neoliberal consensus), and the deepening militarization of the US homeland towards a full police state, are well underway.

This research paper has some intersting details in it. Your thoughts will be appreciated.
