Medical Marijuana I thought originally was just a trick to make smoking it legal again… It thought that perhaps it eased the pain, dulled the mind, or something good like that enabling people in chronic pain to handle it better.

I could not have been more wrong… Why is this knowledge not mainstreamed? (Oh, yeah, that damned corporate American media… “Don’t want to upset our advertisers… we get a lot of cash from pharmaceuticals”..)

But THC was proven unequivocally to be the trigger shutting down cancerous tumors from growing further…

Earlier, two researchers found that cannabidiol, a chemical in hemp and marijuana, caused the cancer gene to turn itself off, and return to dividing into normal cells…

Cancer is apparently a gene. that switches on to make cancer, and off, to make normal cells. Most likely it is a vestige from our earliest moments in life, when massive amounts of cells needed to be made in order to survive. Something external retriggers that gene, and we get cancer….

Not only do we know this marijuana derivative does stop cancer. but in great news this week, just published from England, a research team has determined exactly how….

It uses the Cannabinoid receptor.

Though complicated for the lay person, it goes something like this…

Cannabinoid receptor CB2 and GPR55 are overexpressed in cancer cells and control cell fate… The CB2 and GPR55 are both a G- protein. G- proteins constitute a large protein family of receptors that sense molecules outside the cell and activate inside “signal transduction pathways” and, ultimately, cellular responses. Basically these are the fiber optic lines feeding data into our individual cells… This special receptor sits in our cell walls looking for Cannabinoids… (The sister of this one, CB1 is embedded in the cell wall looking for THC and is the one responsible for the high we feel upon achieving a certain level). This CB2 receptor is specialized more towards turning growth on or off in either immature or mature cells… Basically if you pretend you are the president with your hand on the red button to send missiles into enemy airspace, this receptor would be you. As soon as you sense danger you would begin the process of firing the missiles….

Instead of missiles, the weapon in cancer is unlimited growth… This CB2 is the eyes and ears of the cell… In early embryonic growth, a certain chemical could be released, touching that sensor and massive growth suddenly takes off. Unfortunately perhaps near age 45, some alien chemical or another protein close enough to mimic that earlier protein, randomly touches one cell’s receptor and boom, the signal is reignited….. “Initiate massive growth” orders go out to all necessary proteins ready and awaiting orders since last shutting down…

The breaking news of this story is that metaphorically, where as we knew that occasionally missiles would fly over our heads taking out cities over practically nothing, we didn’t know how that was occurring… What researchers discovered in England relating to these two receptors, is the equivalent of us finding that our commander in chief gets information sent to him along these particular wires, and then he downloads a code to start the missile launching sequence, even if no threat is apparent….

Someone is giving false information to that president along these wires….

So, how can we get access to those same lines to say: “Stop, Mr. President, It’s a mistake, Don’t fire those missiles”? … Research is the equivalent of our noticing that there is always a marijuana smell in the outer office, every time the missiles fly… So by controlling the marijuana or THC to this person, we might make him so high, he never gives the order and we shut down all the missile launches before they transpire…. Or something like that.

Rodents and petri dishes show astonishing results at stopping cancer with THC or other chemicals found in both Marijuana and hemp. We are now awaiting approval of tests on humans (good idea to test things before trying them out as Common Core advocates are currently discovering should always be done first)… Hopefully the approval will be expedited with this good news.

But we are very close it appears, to having a cure for cancer and it will most likely come from a plant for which many Americans were and still are imprisoned for once having in their possession….

Only in an ignorant, closed-minded Conservative America.could a human being be jailed for life, over something that is not only harmless but may yet save the entire of mankind, pets and livestock, from the ravages of cancer….

What a messed up society Conservatives have given us… Please, you owe it to you, God, and our nation. No matter what state you live in, vote all of them out of office… We need to get rid of cancer…

Would be for the University of Delaware to use that space to build the premiere forefront of nuclear fusion research….  Not fission, which has radioactive residue, but fusion which turns hydrogen into helium  generating heat to rotate massive turbines.

Or research into more efficient turbines.

Or more efficient solar panels…

All three would be keeping with the promise of the University of Delaware’s green promise, and make it a leading intellectual nucleus for future technology to adhere….

Going forwards with a TDC that is gas fired is like buying a steam locomotive in 1952……

In an overwhelming vote of no confidence aimed directly at the leadership of UD President Harker, the entire faculty Senate (minus 8 abstentions due to diarrhea), voted against the killing of all babies under 2 years of age residing in Newark…(due to lung cancer in their future)

It is nice to be able to believe in the University of Delaware again, even if not the president….( though it was getting hard there with all the dead end policies that Harker has led this school down the last several years….. ruining the atmosphere for alumni at Delaware sports events, eradicating the track team, and now, putting a toxic smokestack in the heart of Downtown Newark.)

Let that vote sink in….

43 to………… NOTHING !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nobody. I mean nobody, wants this power plant that Governor Markell, and the Delaware Chamber of Commerce is trying to ram down Newark’s throat…

43 to…………….NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

And back date it to apply to all transactions starting after midnight, January 1, 2011….

A giant 248 MW power plant is going into a residential neighborhood.  That is unheard of.  We know Rowan jumped out of a similar deal.

Every human being in Delaware should demand (because they will soon breathe the toxins) that the UD lose its proprietary status, and that we find out what is really going on.

They were up front with Rowen and Rowen said no thank you… The University of Delaware is sitting on valuable information required by all to make a balanced decision, without which a gigantic lifetime mistake could occur….

Obviously they want that mistake to occur…

So, to fight back, they should lose all future protection from FOIA requests…  All it takes is a change of one sentence…..

A statement (not a rhetorical but an action that has grave consequences),  needs to be emphasized:  that if you want of fuck with the citizens of the town of Newark, it will cost you.  It WILL cost you…..

Here: John and Paul….

Long Title: AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 29 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO DEFINITION OF PUBLIC BODY.
Synopsis: This bill would include the President’s Offices of the University of Delaware as being defined as a public body, and would therefore serve to open it to all FOIA inquiries.  Furthermore this bill would reach back to  midnight January 1, 2011 and require the University to legally fulfill all FOIA requests for information dating henceworth that period in time.

Section 1.  Amend § 10002(h), Title 29 of the Delaware Code  by making insertions as shown by underlining as follows:

(h) ”Public body” means, unless specifically excluded, any regulatory, administrative, advisory, executive, appointive or legislative body of the State, or of any political subdivision of the State, including  the University of Delaware, but not limited to, any board, bureau, commission, department, agency, state university, committee, ad hoc committee, special committee, temporary committee, advisory board and committee, subcommittee, legislative committee, association, group, panel, council or any other entity or body established by an act of the General Assembly of the State, or established by any body established by the General Assembly of the State, or the University of Delaware, or the Presidents Office of the University of Delaware, or appointed by any body or public official of the State or otherwise empowered by any state governmental entity, which:

and… Section 1.  Amend § 10002(l), Title 29 of the Delaware Code  

(i) ”Public body,” “public record” and “meeting” shall not include activities of the University of Delaware and Delaware State University, except that the Board of Trustees and all offices of the President of the University of Delaware and the Board of Trustees and all offices of the President of the  Delaware State University shall be “public bodies,” and that the University and University documents relating to the expenditure of all private and public funds shall be deemed “public records,” and each meeting by the President or of the full Board of Trustees of either institution shall be deemed a “meeting.”  This action will apply retroactively to January 1, 2011.

 

We may all die of asphyxiation, but we won’t die without fighting back……

Dear Kavips:

In response to your asking, here is why I went to the meeting in Newark High School for the Power Plant.  My boss made me.  I was pissed off about it because I was suppose to go to my first grader” concert that night, and had to miss it.   I got the call at 4:00 from my boss and was told I had to go there ASAP.  I said WTF for and he said it was important.  I said my daughter is more important, and he said, he could let me go that very day if I didn’t show up for this meeting….

I had to call out of a service call and postpone it till the next day to make the trek up there. and get inside.  I saw a lot of other HVAC vans and many that I trained with so it wasn’t all bad I guess.

Sad thing is, I don’t even want the power plant cause I live downwind from it right off Rt. 4, behind the ShopRite…. I think a lot of others were forced like me to go, because we all weren’t too happy to have to be there… But, gotta do what the boss man says….

Signed…

(your buddy)

Woo Hoo… but it is not what you would at first think……..

Facts:

The Average Canadian is Richer than the Average American. And you know that they say about averages, which means the lower levels here in America are way, way, behind……

Net worth of the average Canadian household in 2011 was $363,202, while the average American household’s net worth was $319,970.

Primarily, paying private health care costs in America and not in Canada makes up the difference.  This past years aging of the baby boomers has increased the medical costs to American society as a whole, and those retirement plans once listed on America’s books as assets, are now quickly being funneled into retirement homes, hospital death panels, and insurance exec’s 7th and 8th homes.

National Healthcare with a single payer system, appears to actually be beneficial for a nation as a whole.

Republicans will say “sure, Canadians may think they are richer, but they are not getting the quality  healthcare Americans get.  Actually that is true.  They appear to be getting better healthcare  and getting it with none of the extra expense.  A healthy 19-year-old Canadian can expect to have 52 more years of perfect health versus 49.3 more years for Americans.  Canadians have a universal healthcare service, which is free at the point of care, whereas Americans’ access to health insurance is usually based on employment, income through Medicaid, or age through Medicare, and not universal.

There is no logical reason not to have single payer health care:  one it is cheaper; two it is better; three we will have perfect health and live longer;

Here are the reasons against having a single health care provider:  less profit to those who own the stocks.

So, it becomes a balance of perfect health for 53 years for everybody in the country. …..  or……  someone else’s bank account growing a little bit more…

Hmmmm. I think having someone else’s bank account grow a little more, is far more important to me than whether or not I have a healthy life or get to pull a few extra years to live on this planet..  I will vote for Romney to get rid of  Obamacare.

Of course, expect to hear the touting of …. Socialism is better than Capitalism.

That depends upon your definition.  For you see, Canada has been under Conservative Control for a long time.   Since the 1990s, Canada has pursued a hardheaded (even ruthless), fiscally conservative form of socialism.  It is just that their conservatives are conservative, and not fanatics which has made all the difference.  The argument is still out there that “uncontrolled Socialism” might not have painted as pretty of a picture as this blend of Conservative Socialism has wrought.

The proper name being thrown around to describe Canada, is  now hybrid-economy, meaning it takes the best from both worlds and blends them together.  Sounds like marriage.

As a footnote it would be good to hit all conservatives with this hockey puck right between their eyes.

Classic conservatism aims to minimize government but that is a tertiary priority after one: doing what is effective and two: doing that which is lest expensive. Since the days of Nixon that message has been co-opted by the radicals to a single item: minimize government. That isn’t “conservatism”, that is fanaticism.

Under classic conservatism life’s basic needs are addressed effectively. Then the most efficient system is sought so the needed quality can be delivered at the lowest price. A true conservative will support a government program if such a system delivers the quality most efficiently. At this point in time, when the nation’s needs are being met and cost is under control, only then does the classic conservative oppose government expansion as a point of principle.

Conservatism in America is functionally dead. It has been replaced by propaganda designed to support plutocracy. The American government has been transformed into an engine which pumps money from the general public into the coffers of a very small sliver of the population.

What is called conservatism today has no resemblance to the genuine article. Doing what time has proven to work best is right down a conservative’s alley. And in the matter of health care, time has proven that universal access works best and is the cheapest.

May America’s true Conservatives have this epiphany and unite with her Liberals against the plutocratic cancer eating away at our great nation.

Footnote: American Conservatives believed in managed healthcare when it was created as the Heritage Foundation Plan; implimented as Romney-care; and tweaked as the Republican Senate’s Plan.  There is something seriously wrong with today’s Republicans.  Seriously wrong.  They need to go up to Canada and see a doctor.

Again, lifted from Der Spiegal

The current favorite? He’s a political dinosaur, dishonored and discredited. Or so we thought. Yet just because he studied history and speaks in more complex sentences than his rivals, the US media now reflexively hails him as a “Man of Ideas” (The Washington Post) — even though most of these ideas are lousy if not downright offensive, such as firing unionized school janitors, so poor children could do their jobs.

Pompous and blustering, Gingrich gets away with this humdinger as well as with selling himself as a Washington outsider — despite having made millions of dollars as a lobbyist in Washington. At least the man’s got chutzpah.

The hypocrisy doesn’t end here. Gingrich claims moral authority on issues such as the “sanctity of marriage,” yet he’s been divorced twice. He sprang the divorce on his first wife while she was sick with cancer. (His supporters’ excuse: It’s been 31 years, and she’s still alive.) He cheated on his second wife just as he was pressing ahead with Bill Clinton’s impeachment during the Monica Lewinsky affair, unaware of the irony. The woman he cheated with, by the way, was one of his House aides and 23 years his junior — and is now his perpetually smiling third wife.

Americans have a short memory. They forget, too, that Gingrich was driven out of Congress in disgrace, the first speaker of the house to be disciplined for ethical wrongdoing. Or that he consistently flirts with racism when he speaks of Barack Obama. Or that he enjoyed a $500,000 credit line at Tiffany’s just as his campaign was financially in the toilet and he ranted about the national debt. Chutzpah, indeed.

Yet the US media rewards him with a daily kowtow. And the Republicans reward him too, by having put him on top in the latest polls. Mr. Hypocrisy, the bearer of his party’s hope.

“I think he’s doing well just because he’s thinking,” former President Clinton told the conservative online magazine NewsMax. “People are hungry for ideas that make some sense.” Sense? Apparently it’s not just the Republicans who have lost their minds here.

Lifted from the Occupy Planning Committee….

1. Eradicate the Bush tax cuts for the rich and institute new taxes on the wealthiest Americans and on corporations.

Strong economies have a system that recirculates income throughout the system. The Bush Tax Cuts interrupt that system, by rewarding the removal of excess (profit) and gambling it on riskier items with the potential of superlative returns. Translated: Putting Billions on Animal Kingdom to win, place or show, doesn’t create jobs.

2. Assess a penalty tax on any corporation that moves American jobs to other countries when that company is already making profits in America.

This is simple. Raise the wealthy’s taxes across the board. Mandate that income earned overseas by American corporations gets taxed by America too. Then, allow a 100% write off on all physical investment here in America. Translated: Corporations will build here, when it becomes cheaper for them to build here.

3. Reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act, placing serious regulations on how business is conducted by Wall Street and the banks.

We tried deregulation. It didn’t work. We reverted right back to where we were in the stock crash of 1929 after which Glass-Steagall was enacted to prevent that from ever happening again. Essentially Glass-Steagall says we need to separate our money that we require ourselves to live on, away from speculative investment… If you want to invest, do it by choosing to put your money at risk in an investment firm knowing full well that you could lose it all. However, safe money, needs to stay safe.

4. Join the rest of the free world and create a single-payer, free and universal health care system that covers all Americans all of the time.

There is a reason why other nations spend less on health care per person, and have much better results. THERE IS A REASON. One can wish for a lot of things; wish that private health care didn’t cost so much, wish that private insurance covered everything, wish that our doctor could keep giving us free samples all the time…. Switching to single payer, if we use Japan as a model, would save every American $4,800 dollars a year. A family of four therefore would see a savings of $19,200 per year…. Imagine what a family could do with an additional $19200 a year plopped into their lap? What’s really sad? The Japanese live much longer too… meaning we are paying more and getting nothing in return.

5. Immediately reduce carbon emissions that are destroying the planet and discover ways to live without the oil that will be depleted and gone by the end of this century.

Reducing carbon emissions is good for whatever reason. The idea that carbon fuel usage will deteriorate is not viable. The global energy requirements are growing exponentially. We need to insist that all new demand for power, be met by renewable resources (excluding ethanol). We will still need existing operations to continue just to keep our lights on.

6. We, the people, must pass two constitutional amendments that will go a long way toward fixing the core problems we now have. These include:

a) A constitutional amendment that fixes our broken electoral system by 1) completely removing campaign contributions from the political process; 2) requiring all elections to be publicly financed; 3) moving election day to the weekend to increase voter turnout; 4) making all Americans registered voters at the moment of their birth; 5) banning computerized voting and requiring that all elections take place on paper ballots.

b) A constitutional amendment declaring that corporations are not people and do not have the constitutional rights of citizens. This amendment should also state that the interests of the general public and society must always come before the interests of corporations.

….. and now Steve Newton of Delaware Libertarian is bowing out….

Forgive me for getting some out of order, but his name now goes up on the wall next to those of Dana Garrett, Mike Matthews, Jason Scott, Shirley Vandever, Dave Burris.

All gone, leaving only these few greats are still left: Nancy, Tommywonk, Kilroy, LiberalGeek, Pandora, David Anderson, & Hube.

The era over which these giants roamed was between the elections of 06 and 08. Some started earlier, but these few individuals were the only source of information during that time stamp.

Today, the News Journal has lost its paternalistic viewpoint touting the union of construction labor and developers formerly known as the Delaware Way, and is actually reporting news ahead of bloggers for a change. Likewise today, WDEL has both on its morning show with Al Mascitti and afternoon show with Rick Jensen, steered discussion away from the likes of (who?) Sean Hannity… and Al Loudell has kept us abreast of local politics in ways unheard of before bloggers began typing in their briefs…

So in a way, since these bloggers were successful back then, today they are not as vital as they once were… Many saw their blogs as the only way to get the truth past the News Journal censors, those higher ups who would not publish any truth that showed an elected official in bad light….

Those studying this phenomena will see that there was much agreement between bloggers on both sides of the aisle… It was very rare for this group to be divisive over the prime issues of this state’s business.. All of them were for Atkins removal. All of them were for beginning offshore wind in Delaware, … All of them were for the slowdown of work force housing… all of them were for the betterment of Delaware’s educational opportunities…

Of course we quibbled on who would become the next president, but that is to be expected… No family lives without arguing at least once…

There were rises and falls among each giant’s influence… But at the core of each individual was the feeling that each had a unique insight into the current problem staring us down, and wrote about it with an urgency that turned out usually to be correct… And usually, if agreement was not forthcoming by the first comment, by the end of the comment thread, some form of agreement among the blogger’s roundtable, was visible…

As politicians came to realize the News Journal wasn’t changing, they began contributing to these giant’s pages, giving substance in ways unheard of among those writing for the Community Board of the News Journal… Reading the blogs gave us a real time insight into the workings of our state government in Dover……

But it was the wind controversy that elevated the giants to their current stature… Only the blogs could get the message out that Delmarva was incredibly concerned about losing control of their monopoly, and that wind power for Delaware would by offering competition, lower our energy prices. And they did, so well, that the entire legislature at the end of their 2007 session, voted unanimously to approve of the landmark agreement between Bluewater Wind and Delmarva Power….

Some of us think that they, shaking in their boots, didn’t dare vote otherwise… For bloggers have long memories as well as does the public….

But these giants among men, did more than just push wind. They publicized the eminent domain controversy. They scoured local politics. They broke the work force housing pact apart. They clamored against Atkins, forcing him to resign. They dogged the SEU. They picked apart candidates so much that those who had flaws, couldn’t win. Dana Garrett could be heard almost weekly on WVUD.. Tommy Noyes, for a while was a weekly guest on Al Loudell’s award winning newscast. They OOGAcised the fight for open government, forcing one flustered legislator to call out for a prayer dedicated to just for the bloggers, asking for their salvation of their souls… Apparently those prayers were answered; for by their souls we have open government today….

But amongst the best, the very concept of government was debated back and forth, no doubt as it once was during the beginning of this nation during its infancy… Torture, domestic spying, gun ownership, thieving Vice Presidents, all had their day in court upon these pages….

And today, there are new names who in the years ahead might be considered to be the giants of this contemporary time zone..

Deldem, RSmitty, El “S”, Donviti, Cassandra, all came into prominence after the defining moment of passing the wind act…. As well as Sussex Green, Red Water Lily, Mourning Constitution,… all of which became big as the 2008 election season came upon us….

And from the ranks of commentators came a Sussex County Councilwomen, a candidate for a House seat, as well as a last minute candidate who took on Mr. Pam Scott, and began nailing his shoes to the floor…. Miro had a contender for once; that commentator speaks up often…

Steve Newton will be missed.

With his passing is the last of the great thinkers… Today, we have bullets fed to us… But Steve took on all other blogs, all other commentators and wrote posts about them… Steve looked at everything with fresh eyes…. Giants can do that, since they see things from way up…….

I won’t go in to praising Steve… for I’m here to call attention to the passing of a era. Perhaps those times when benevolent giants roamed our state, will be considered by us dying men and women, to be the glory times we hark back to, the second we close our eyes for their last time…..

For when you look back as what we’ve done, the word “giants” is not really a bad moniker….
