Vegetarian Brain Shrinkage

Boy oh boy, isn’t this funny?

MELBOURNE: Scientists have discovered that going veggie could be bad for your brain-with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.

Vegans and vegetarians are the most likely to be deficient because the best sources of the vitamin are meat, particularly liver, milk and fish. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause anaemia and inflammation of the nervous system. Yeast extracts are one of the few vegetarian foods which provide good levels of the vitamin.

This is sure to be as popular a topic with vegetarians and meatitarians (for want of a sillier coinage) alike as the venerable tofu brain shrinkage issue. To add to the irony, note where the article was found (hint, vegan central).

Hedge Fund Liar Makes $2.9 Billion, says economy is in crisis

How can this be? The truth is that every change in the economy is good for someone and bad for someone else. Increased production, however, which Democrats and their Green buddies are against because of their irrational global warming obsession, lifts up everybody at the same time. What is the solution Soros proposes for the troubles he sees? More progressive and socialist agitation validated by the increasingly feckless (ref. meaning 2) Democratic Party, which he has bought and paid for with his billions. The only way to stop the dollar from plummeting is to stop printing so much money. This would require raising government interest rates and cutting government spending. In order for these changes to not plunge the US and world into a new depression, tax rates would also need to be reduced to minimal levels and bad rules and laws like Sarbanes-Oxley and the Americans with Disabilities act need to be repealed or drastically revised.

ManBearPig’s Big Green Scam

Pro Patria scribes:

So just what has Al Gore gained from his Big Green escapades? According to public disclosure information, Gore was worth somewhere between $1 million and $2 million in 2000. Not quite eight years later, Gore is estimated to be worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million. While I ordinarily would applaud such financial gains from such a short period of time, I can’t help but to question just how it happened. When you look out at what Al Gore has done, it’s evident that he figured out on a way to capitalize on the creation of Big Green while becoming the official doomsday prophet that has helped to build Big Green into the monetary powerhouse that it has become.

In any other industry this would be considered a severe conflict of interest. In essence, Al Gore has helped to create a fictitious catastrophe, then told everybody what the solutions have to be, and then put himself in a position to capitalize on the hype.

Mark my words. This is the next Enron.

Desertions and Suicides, NOT!

Remember that recent news story about an elevated suicide rate among American veterans of Iraq? It is false. Remember the popular meme that soldiers have been deserting the US military like gangbusters since the battle of Iraq began? It is also false.

Stossel: Gimme a Break, ManBearPig

The kids in the video are more scared about Global Warming than the kids in the 1960s were about Mutually Assured Destruction. And the threat is nowhere near as great. Global Warming is a scare tactic, not science.

If the video doesn’t work, try here or here.
