Frozen pensioners contain higher levels of vitamins and antioxidants say scientists

Can’t add anything to this.

(satire?)

  • Study finds two out of three grannies’ bodies contain more nutrients if frozen to death
  • Experts say freezing old people prevents cancer and aids the body, brain, skin and eyes
  • Results demonstrate frozen pensioners less likely to experience painful illnesses such as arthritis
  • Government planning to encourage more pensioners to freeze themselves to death this winter

Frozen pensioners and old people can be healthier, with higher levels of vitamins and cancer fighting antioxidants in their bodies than senior citizens who are still alive according to government experts.

Two studies for the Department of Health found more beneficial nutrients in the bodies of everything from frozen grandfathers and grannies to great aunts and uncles.

In two out of three cases, frozen pensioners scored better on measurements of antioxidant-type compounds – including Vitamin C, polyphenols, anthocyanins, lutein and beta-carotene – than those OAPs who were still warm and alive.

Many of the…

‘Tech experts: Health exchange site needs total overhaul’

Same OS – but we are in a loop of bad mouth President Obama no matter what and our Democrats are as guilty – we all need to get out of this false flag loop!

The Last Of The Millenniums

bush drug plan

Remember President Bush’s 2006 Prescription Drug Plan roll out?

My bad.

Instead of defunding President Bush’s 2006 Prescription Drug Plan, instead of shutting down the Government over President Bush’s 2006 Prescription Drug Planaln, instead of bringing the Nation to the brink of defaulting on our National Debt over President Bush’s 2006 Perscription Drug Plan…

Democrats actually jumped in and helped fix it.

Gee.

Why don’t republicans do that with Obamacare?
‘Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has not had a very good week. Just days after the glitch-filled roll-out of the Affordable Care Act’s online health insurance exchanges, Sebelius got grilled by Jon Stewart of the Daily Show’.

Rep. Issa to investigate? Gunmen kill Libya military police chief in Benghazi | News | DW.DE | 18.10.2013

Unidentified assailants gunned down Libya\’s military police chief outside of his home in Benghazi on Friday, according to Libyan security officials. Colonel Ahmed Mostafa el-Barghathy was reportedly heading to mosque to attend Friday prayers when he killed.

\”Several shots hit Ahmed [Mostafa] el-Barghathy. He was brought to hospital but later died there,\” a security source told the news agency Reuters on the condition of anonymity.

El-Barghathy was one of the first members of the military to take up arms against Moammar Gadhafi in the 2011 uprising.

The latest attack comes roughly a week after the kidnapping of Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, who was later released unharmed, and attacks on several consulates since this summer. Benghazi was also the site of the high-profile killing of the US ambassador Chris Stevens last year.

Award the Congressional Gold Medal to the Borinqueneers Now

Repeating Islands

borinque2

Gretchen Sierra-Zorita argues for the support the Congressional Gold Medal for the 65th Infantry Regiment Borinqueneers:

Roughly 60 years ago, 91 soldiers from Puerto Rico’s 65th Infantry Regiment, known as the Borinqueneers, were court-martialed and sentenced for desertion and disobedience during the Korean War (1950-1953). Puerto Ricans at home were shocked by the news. This regiment had a “brilliant record of heroism in battle,” according to General Douglas McArthur. Congress, the Puerto Rican government, and the press demanded an investigation. The U.S. Army backed down, attributed the breakdown to a language barrier and overturned all sentences. But the Army did not fix the damage undeservedly done to the regiment’s overall reputation.

Most court-martialed soldiers continued to serve in the U.S. Army. The Borinqueneers would have been forgotten after the war but for dedicated individuals and organizations who want Congress to honor the regiment with the Congressional Gold Medal. To…

We’re not just paying for British Gas directors’ bonuses. It’s £3.5bn to shareholders too.

Interest never goes down in Toryland!

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

Not surprisingly a lot of people are feeling pretty annoyed at yet another massive price hike for domestic consumers by an energy company just before winter.

British Gas have announced price rises of an average 9.2% on domestic bills – presumably to help cover the tens of millions they have to pay out in bonuses to their senior directors.

But tens of millions is peanuts compared to the £3.5bn British Gas parent company Centrica has paid out to its shareholders in dividends over the last 5 years.

That’s £3.5bn the company would now have in its coffers if it hadn’t been privatised.

Enough to not only avoid price rises – but to substantially cut domestic energy bills just before winter too I would have thought.
