Morons.

How are these christians taken seriously by anyone?

They are information terrorists.

Have they no shame?

No.

The answer is simply, no.

No shame. No conscience. No decency.

Nice quote from Dante.

This is what we're up against. Is this the America we want? Bad news: we already have it. Well done, CIGNA. Thank you, Blue-Dog Dems. And of course, this edition of American Reality is brought to you by the Republican party, or as they call it now, the GOP.

Funny how the church goes silent when anything important happens... whatever happened to the "least of my brethren"?

Maybe the Pope got bought off by the insurance lobby...

Do you trust your doctor or the paper pushers at your insurance company?

Another way to look at the issue: is it bribing or lobbying?

When the Republicans and the blue dog Democrats are both in the pockets of the drug and insurance companies, what do you expect? This is why we have lost our way, and why specifically, we need campaign finance reform.

Time to throw these money-lenders out of the temple! Call and write your reps on Capitol Hill - daily! It's your health, after all.

P.S. - Democrats, dump Baucus, now.

Is this another sign of global warming?

Giant jellyfish in the Sea of Japan and two, jumbo squid off San Diego.

Just another one of those "climate-change" coincidences?

Almost forgot, presenting - the green goop that ate Alaska:

Where have all the fish gone?

Here's my intuitive intelligence interview with Francis Cholle at Emory Marketing Institute >>

Cholle's main point is that businesses have lost track of how to manage holistically. They are too focused on counting beans to create sustainable business value.

He's not saying analytics are useless. He's just saying that Mark Hurd at HP isn't going to come up with the products HP needs for the future by using analytical processes (that's not in the published interview - but we did discuss it!).

My family has been a customer of Silk Soy for well over seven years. As of today, we quit. Why? Two reasons:

1) the soy beans aren't organic anymore
2) they're from China

Anyone who trusts food from China is being foolish. Remember this? Not to mention the carbon costs of transporting food all that way...

Read all about how Dean Foods destroyed its brand and beat up on American organic farmers at the same time. I thought about writing them or calling them, but it's less work to just switch. They're obviously not going to listen to their customers anyway.

Just another example of the short-term, unsustainable mindset of the multinational company.

How long must we sing this song?
