He is the author of The Heretic’s Guide to Global Finance (2013).) Any large and alienating infrastructure controlled by a technocratic elite is bound to provoke.

National Institutes of Health funds search for mysterious ‘obesity gremlins’ that are secretly making lesbians fat

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger (NaturalNews) This story is not satire. According to a study funded by the National Institutes of Health and awarded to a Boston hospital for more than $1.5 million, some mysterious phenomenon is covertly making lesbians obese, in apparent violation of the dietary laws of cause and effect. For now, I’m calling this phenomenon “obesity gremlins,” and here’s how a NIH-funded study describes this extraordinary mystery: It is now well-established that women of minority sexual orientation are disproportionately affected by the obesity epidemic, with nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese, compared to half … Continue reading National Institutes of Health funds search for mysterious ‘obesity gremlins’ that are secretly making lesbians fat

How to Talk to Your Kids About Sex, Death and Everything in Between

While some topics are hard to discuss and might make you uncomfortable, that doesn’t mean your children need to be sheltered. By Toni Nagy I lie to my kid constantly. I tell her the store is closed in the middle of the day, when I don’t want to go. I will say, “I have no idea where that chocolate cookie went,” when I know exactly where it went — in my mouth.
