Good Article on Vaping

Before I cash in my chips and go to bed, I give you this to read:

If a new delivery-room procedure reduced deaths of mothers during labor by 95%, CNN and “60 Minutes” would do special hour-long tributes and the new technique would quickly become mandatory.

If a new safety gadget inside automobiles were demonstrated to reduced fatalities by 95%, it would be talked up as a miracle of the age and be installed in every car.And yet, years ago along came a device that reduces harm from smoking by 95%. The reaction has been silence at times, outright suppression at others. There have been plenty of lies to accompany this bizarre smear campaign.

If smokers switched to e-cigarettes, it would “prevent almost all of the harm from smoking,” Britain’s Royal College of Physicians stated this week, highlighting growing evidence in favor of e-cigarette use, or vaping. The RCP says it is “unlikely” that vaping is even 5% as dangerous as smoking — and may be substantially safer than that.

As someone who vapes and has had to listen to countless mindless morons say vaping is dangerous, this is a welcome article. Go read it, please. 🙂

A very good read….

This is something that I have been sort of saying myself, for a very long time. Glad someone finally wrote it:

Ronald Reagan swept to two landslide victories on the strength of his famous three-legged stool—economic conservatism, social conservatism and an internationalist, hawkish foreign policy. But the elements of the Reagan coalition have been drifting apart for some time, and the alliance now appears to be irretrievably fractured. – Source: The Reagan Coalition Is Dead.

Word to the wise to those using Google Adsense

I thought I would let everybody know that anybody that’s running Google AdSense and you’re a conservative, you should be really aware of your content.

I received this, this early morning from Google AdSense:

Violation explanationn

HATE/ANTI: While Google believes strongly in the freedom of expression, we also recognize the need to protect the quality of the AdSense network for users, advertisers, and publishers.  As such, Google does not allow the monetization of hate speech or any other content that is intended to insult, offend or intimidate an individual or group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.  This includes, but is not limited to content that:

  • uses derogatory racial or ethnic slurs to refer to an individual or group
  • encourages violence against women or men
  • contains racist or homophobic drawings or cartoons.

I guess Google AdSense is now cracking down on content. For the record, the content that was brought into question  was a quotation from an old Lee Atwater interview that I blogged about that a liberal publication quoted and apparently the n-word was contained in that interview and their robots saw it and sent me a warning.

I really hate to be forced into deleting content from my blog. but, I could really use the extra money that AdSense brings in. It’s not a lot, but, still it’s some sort of income. so I deleted the posting.

I really hope this doesn’t become an issue with them, because I would hate to have to drop Google AdSense it does generate an income and revenue for this blog and more importantly, me.

I guess Free Speech ain’t what it used to be in this country.

Ha! Lena Dunham Says, “If Trump Wins, I will flee to Canada!” Trump says, “Americans will thank me if she does!”

I have to confess, I laughed out loud, when I read this:

Via the Hill:

Lena Dunham is the latest celebrity to say she’ll hightail it out of the country if Donald Trump is elected president.

“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” Dunham told Andy Cohen at the Matrix Awards on Monday.

“I know a lovely place in Vancouver and I can get my work done from there.”

Well, Donald Trump had an awesome response to that:

Not only would Donald Trump not mind if certain celebrities flee the United States upon his election, the Republican front-runner said Tuesday that their opposition to his candidacy only increases his will to win.

During a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump was asked about a tweet from Lena Dunham on Monday in which she vowed to leave the U.S. for Vancouver if he is elected president.

Trump’s response: “Well, she’s a B-actor. You know, she has no — you know, no mojo.”

“I heard Whoopi Goldberg too. That would be a great thing for our country,” Trump said, as the show flashed a graphic of celebrities who it said would leave the U.S. for Canada, including Dunham, Jon Stewart, and Rosie O’Donnell, with whom the Manhattan real-estate mogul has feuded for years.

When co-host Steve Doocy pointed out that O’Donnell’s name on the list, Trump remarked, “Now I have to get elected.”

“Now I have to get elected because I’ll be doing a great service to our country,” he said. “Now it’s much more important. In fact, I’ll immediately get off this call and start campaigning right now.”

As you all know, I am not a fan boy of Donald Trump, and for some very good reasons. But, this…..this was awesomeness at it’s best. I really hope Trump does win; so that these liberal idiot twats really do leave our Country and take their European socialist horse manure ideals with them.

This, my dear friends, cannot happen fast enough.
