Sweet Lies, The Aspartame Issue

Aspartame activists are constantly being attacked because all data are a matter of public record from congressional records to government documents.

Regulatory Hooey Protects Us From Our Own Health

Legislation is getting legs to further curtail your use of nutritional supplements. Not too long ago, prior to passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) ? which was accomplished by millions of letters to legislators by people like you ? the FDA acted like a Gestapo against supplements, manufacturers and professional advocates.

Mr. Bin Laden: Tear this Wall Down

You say, you want to help the Palestinians, but most of them still struggle in poverty. How are you helping anyone?

A Modern Lite in the Third World

Americans pride themselves on being the best, that’s a fact. From McDonalds, to Coke, to Microsoft, to Hollywood, we have the best of everything. Don’t we? Especially in computer technology, Dell, HP/Compaq, Macintosh, we stand tall. Is that right? Is that a fact? I got back from Belize a few weeks ago. They don’t even […]

The Dragons

I hope to provide a starting point for the serious scholar interested in the all important Chanes of Central America and convince researchers to look into the Egyptian dragons (crocodiles) and Chinese as well. I suspect the Li or Lee family of Merovingians has some connection to the Nestorian and Basilian types long before the […]

Six Sigma Can Improve Government Practices

Government bodies at any level, local, state, and Federal, can implement Six Sigma to improve customer service and increase the effectiveness of government.

A Deal Made With Ireland

SYNOD OF DRUM CEATT (494 – 5): It is interesting to observe that the dominant cleric of the Catholic Church at this Synod was Columcille who we know as St. Columba. He was trained (like many) at the Isle of Druids or Iona. His legend includes many witnesses of him affecting the wind and the […]

Thomas Paine / Jefferson

Conor MacDari was a Mason but his Masonry deplored the British ‘alehouse and tavern denizens’. Jim Shaw and many other top Masons have written as much truth as they know.
