About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

American Red Cross Cited by FDA for Blood-Safety Rule Violations

The American Red Cross, the biggest U.S. supplier of donated blood, failed to correct violations of blood-safety rules, raising the risk that ill-suited blood will be used in transfusions, U.S. regulators said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration fined the Red Cross $9.59 million, according to a letter from the agency to the Red Cross made public on Jan. 13. The organization has been cited 14 times since 2003 and fined about $46 million for similar offenses.

The Red Cross didn’t ensure that all staff had adequate blood-safety training and hasn’t created a complete list of prospective donors who were disqualified from giving blood, according to the letter. The Washington- based consumer group Public Citizen this month urged the agency to levy sanctions.

Jesus is Watching You..not reglious, just a clean joke...#16

There was a burglar making his way thru a nice house when he hears a
voice, "Jesus is watching you" From the bedroom,after taking the
lady's jewels, he goes to the living room takes a
flat screen TV, DVD, and another small DVD- TV combo...from another room..
, a voice "Jesus is watching you"
....
He finally gets to the kitchen........starts to
steal the fine silver wear, and notices a parrot, saying,
"Jesus is watching you".......The burglar looks up, and says, "Oh, you
must be Jesus, you are nothing to worry about..." What kind of owner
would name a parrot "Jesus".....

.....The parrot replies.." My name is Moses
,not Jesus, Jesus is the meanest 150 pound German Shepard you ever
met, and he is standing right outside the kitchen door, and believe
me, Jesus is watching you."

Read this if you got time..........This will not go away..

The Brutal Truth about Penn State

The problem can't be solved by prayer or piety — and it's far more widespread than we think
By Charles P. Pierce POSTED NOVEMBER 14, 2011

In the 5th and 6th paragraph:

"The crimes at Penn State are about the raping of children. That is all they are about. The crimes at Penn State are about the raping of children by Jerry Sandusky, and the possibility that people lied to a grand jury about the raping of children by Jerry Sandusky, and the likelihood that most of the people who had the authority at Penn State to stop the raping of children by Jerry Sandusky proved themselves to have the moral backbone of ribbon worms.


It no longer matters if there continues to be a football program at Penn State. It no longer even matters if there continues to be a university there at all. All of these considerations are trivial by comparison to what went on in and around the Penn State football program."

Why I Hate War..

Sand Creek ..read it is about what American Soldiers did..if you don't know.
On the morning of November 29, 1864, Chivington ordered his troops to attack......

Black Kettle, a chief of a group of around 800 mostly Northern Cheyenne, reported to Fort Lyon in an effort to establish peace. After having done so, he and his band, along with some Arapaho under Chief Niwot, camped out at nearby Sand Creek, less than 40 miles north. The Dog Soldiers, who had been responsible for many of the raids on whites, were not part of this encampment. Assured by the U.S. Government's promises of peace, most of the warriors were off hunting buffalo, leaving only around 60 men, and women and children in the village. Most of the men were too old or too young to hunt. Black Kettle flew an American flag over his lodge, since previously the officers had said this would show he was friendly and prevent attack by U.S. soldiers.

Setting out from Fort Lyon, Chivington and his 700 troops of the First Colorado Cavalry, Third Colorado Cavalry and a company of First New Mexico Volunteers marched to Black Kettle's campsite. On the night of November 28, soldiers and militia drank heavily and celebrated their anticipated victory. On the morning of November 29, 1864, Chivington ordered his troops to attack. Two officers, Captain Silas Soule and Lieutenant Joseph Cramer, commanding companies D and K, respectively, of the First Colorado Cavalry, refused to follow Chivington's order and told their men to hold fire. Other soldiers in Chivington's force, however, immediately attacked the village. Disregarding the American flag, and a white flag that was run up shortly after the soldiers commenced firing, Chivington's soldiers massacred many of its inhabitants.


I saw the bodies of those lying there cut all to pieces, worse mutilated than any I ever saw before; the women cut all to pieces ... With knives; scalped; their brains knocked out; children two or three months old; all ages lying there, from sucking infants up to warriors ... By whom were they mutilated? By the United States troops ...

—- John S. Smith, Congressional Testimony of Mr. John S. Smith, 1865


Fingers and ears were cut off the bodies for the jewelry they carried. The body of White Antelope, lying solitarily in the creek bed, was a prime target. Besides scalping him the soldiers cut off his nose, ears, and testicles-the last for a tobacco pouch ...

—- Stan Hoig


Jis to think of that dog Chivington and his dirty hounds, up thar at Sand Creek. His men shot down squaws, and blew the brains out of little innocent children. You call sich soldiers Christians, do ye? And Indians savages? What der yer 'spose our Heavenly Father, who made both them and us, thinks of these things? I tell you what, I don't like a hostile red skin any more than you do. And when they are hostile, I've fought 'em, hard as any man. But I never yet drew a bead on a squaw or papoose, and I despise the man who would.

I ate something for my health, this morning, that I have never eaten before..never..

I had bought a can of canned salmon last week,
wild salmon from Alaska..Castle Rock ..

Now, I don't eat much breakfast, but got some heart issues, and they say, Omega 3, and
salmon is the best, they say, so, I opened up this can, and ate half of it.
Half for tomorrow..now that may not be a big deal for you..but it is for me...

Fatal Stampede points out University Crisis in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG — They lined up well before dawn, some driving from the deep countryside with bags of fluffy blankets and neatly packed sandwiches, to wait for the gates to a new life to open. They hoped for a shot at a coveted spot at one of South Africa’s public universities, and with it a chance to escape the indignity of joblessness that afflicts more than a third of the nation. By morning, the line was more than a mile long.

Paramedics attended to one of the people injured on Tuesday during a stampede at the University of Johannesburg as students sought openings.

As the gates were about to open at 7:45 Tuesday morning, thousands of students, many accompanied by their anxious parents, surged forward, desperate to win one of several hundred last-chance places still open at the University of Johannesburg. Amid shoving and screams, one woman, the mother of a prospective student, was trampled to death and several others were badly injured in a frantic scrum.

The stampede embodied the broad crisis in South Africa’s overstretched higher education system as it struggles to extend opportunities once reserved for whites to all South Africans. It is a problem of grade school mathematics: Too many students are seeking too few seats at the country’s public universities, which turn away more than half of their applicants, leaving few options for most high school graduates

Huffington Post...these idiots do not proof read...Screw up royal..

In this story, they get it all wrong..see second paragraph.. this is the way it was written at 7:30am eastern time..
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

"In an appearance on The Daily Show last night, George Lucas said that he had trouble getting funding for his new movie, "Red Tails," because of its black cast.

"This has been held up for release since 1942 since it was shot, I've been trying to get released ever since," Lucas told Jon Stewart. "It's because it's an all-black movie. There's no major white roles in it at all...I showed it to all of them and they said no. We don't know how to market a movie like this."

________________________________________________________________________________________________________a

The entire point is ruined because of the stupidity of someone.. It wasn't held up since 1942 when it was shot, it was written in 1992.
I found that elsewhere on the net. . These idiots don't are just that ......idiots...

Two Women waiting to get into heaven... #15

Subject: TWO WOMEN

Two Women waiting in line at the Pearly Gates to get into heaven and
started to strike up a conversation.
"How'd you die?" the first woman asks the second.

"I froze to death," says the second.

"That's awful," says the first woman. "How does it feel to freeze to
death?

"It's very uncomfortable at first," says the second woman. "You get
the
shakes, and you get pains in all your fingers and toes. But
eventually,
it's a very calm way to go. You get numb and you kind of drift off,
as if all were peacful and quiet..

How about you, how did you die?"

"I had a heart attack," says the first woman.
"You see, I knew my husband was cheating on me, so one day I showed
up at
home unexpectedly. I ran up to the bedroom, and found him alone,
watching
TV. I ran down to the basement, but no one was hiding there, either. I ran
up to the second floor, but no one was hiding there either. I ran as fast

as I could to the attic, and just as I got there, I had a massive
heart attack and died
The second woman shakes her head.

"That's so ironic," she says.
....... "If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we would both still be alive..

Olbermann and Current resolve Feud, Olberman Will Control Election Coverage

Keith Olbermann's feud with his bosses at Current TV has been resolved -- for now.

Tensions between the "Countdown" host and the leadership at the small network had reached a boiling point last week, as the two sides publicly warred over Olbermann's control of Current's 2012 election coverage.

On Sunday night, Olbermann took to Twitter to announce that he would, in fact, be at the helm of Current's coverage. "I'm pleased to tell you that I'll be running the election coverage on Current, after New Hampshire," he wrote. "Not sure GOP will share my satisfaction."
