• Again, just to be clear on this!

    While this is terrible for what it really is, don't be naive and call it what it isn't.

    There is no human fetal anything in any products. What this Senomyx company did was use embryonic kidney tissue to develop a receptor test to determine which chemicals trigger which chemical reactions in humans. It is still disgusting and totally backwards, but it isn't ingesting human biological material.

    Also, to my understanding, they don't need a continued supply of embryos now that they got HEK293 (though it took 293 experiments to get there). But the fact they're allowed to do this in the first place is disturbing. This certainly isn't the "cure alzheimer's/undue paralysis" BS they usually try to justify stem-cell/embryonic tissue research with.

    Here's some details (from http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/09/0...):
    "Senomyx is a high tech research and development business that is "dedicated to finding new flavors to reduce sugars and reduce salt." But their focus is not on whole, organic fruits and vegetables, or grass-pastured meats, dairy and eggs. Senomyx develops patented flavor enhancers by using "proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems."

    That's a testing system that provides scientists with biochemical responses and electronic readouts when a flavor ingredient interacts with their patented receptor, letting researchers know whether or not their flavor enhancer is effective. The receptors are made from HEK293 -- HEK stands for Human Embryonic Kidney cells, with 293 denoting that the HEK was from the 293rd experiment. HEK293 originally came from a healthy, electively aborted baby whose cells were then harvested and cloned."

  • Schiff vs West Debate

    They should totally do that - West offered.

    They should have coffee and cognac, too.

    More televised, in depth (not sound byte) debates on these issues will help individuals make up their own minds. Let's get this organized!

    I think the third bullet would be what Dr. Paul is referring to...

  • Which staffers?

    Is it just Ron Paul staffers or were all staff invited to participate. I would be surprised if some of those questions were coming from Ron Paul staffers...

    "I get the same stupid question at almost every one of these events. I know it's a deliberate strategy. How can a person randomly show up at a hundred events and ask the same stupid question to try to nail me on the Federal Reserve? It's really becoming annoying more than anything else.
    But I've got news for those Paulites: It's not going to work, because the American people are a lot smarter than they are. That's what I'm seeing round the country."

  • Great time at Omni

    Wife and I went down - Paul packed and rocked the house! The campaign was very professional and well organized. I drove in from a few hours away but folks were there who had gotten up at 3AM and earlier to take a group bus down - incredible dedication that no other candidate can claim.

    Had a great time, and while the campaign kept on saying "the vote is going to be close" - with all of the Ron Paul buttons and friendly faces I would be very surprised if another candidate took it. Second closest I saw in labeled supporters were for Santorum - I didn't see any individuals "branded" for any of the other candidates.

    I was also at the hotel on Friday and there wasn't nearly the count of people that were there today for the Good Doctor.

    Fun times!

  • awesome

    can we get a "Love" button on facebook?

  • Hold On People!

    Did you review all the pictures of the murals - it is a clear story, they have to be taken together, and are not at all what Jesse Ventura makes it seem!

    The first mural is obviously taking a look at environmental issues, showing children holding extinct creatures. The children in graves is a motif throughout the pieces until the end.

    Yes there is an absolutely evil war figure in the next mural and children are dying or being left in the cold and the dove of peace is being slain...

    BUT, Particularly focus on the final mural: http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/imagenes_area51/denver8.jpg

    Children (neglected and damaged from all the war) from all over the world are bringing all the weapons from their nations (wrapped in flags to represent the whole world), with smiles on their faces and a banner that says "PEACE" in different languages. They are laying these swords into the coffin of the evil warmonger, who has been defeated, and has the doves of peace alive-and-well standing over his dead and fading image.

    The murals are a commentary on the wars and are proposing a future where the next generation comes together for peace and overcomes against the wars.

    As for the Free Masons and New World Airport Commission and Cheyenne Mountain Complex - I don't know, but the murals are clearly NOT what this post would make them seem and can only pull off the impression you're getting by being VERY selective about what is shown - just like how MSM tries to make Dr. Paul's brilliant ideas of liberty seem half-baked or heartless by skewing and only showing incomplete pieces of the story.
