I’m crossposting this article from chinaview because it is so important.  It is in line with the recent FDA warning to beware of infant formula in Asian markets. The facts now are that this was going on at the same time we had melamine related pet deaths in the United States. Be sure and click on the link below to read the entire article:

Three year cover up in China milk scandal

Posted by chinaview on September 19, 2008

The Radio Australia, September 19, 2008-

[Reports in the Chinese media suggest the company at the centre of a contaminated milk scandal knew it had a problem as far back as 2005.

Our correspondent Kerri Ritchie reports, more than 6,000 children in China are sick and four babies have died after drinking milk laced with melamine.

Chinese media is reporting dairy company Sanlu knew its products were contaminated three years ago but kept quiet.

Sanlu’s chairwoman has been sacked along with a number of government officials.

New Zealand dairy giant Fonterra part-owns Sanlu.

Fonterra knew about the crisis six weeks before it went public.

New Zealand trade minister Phil Goff doesn’t believe Fonterra’s representatives at Sanlu should be arrested but he says Fonterra should learn some lessons.

“China is a market of huge opportunity but it’s also a market which operates quite differently from New Zealand,” he said.

Fonterra says it’s now doing all it can to make things right.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government quality watchdog says nearly 10 per cent of milk samples taken from top Chinese dairy companies was contaminated by melamine….]

McCain/GOP ‘Voter Caging’ Underway in Florida

Local Democratic Party Chair Seems Clueless About Republican Attempt to Disenfranchise His Voters…

From the St. Petersburg Times…

[…The mailings sent to registered Democrats appear to be classic “caging” letters, marked as “Do Not Forward”, so that they will then be returned to the GOP if there is any problem with delivery. Those returned letters will likely then be used as a basis to challenge the legitimacy of those particular voters on Election Day….

The first-class GOP mailing has a “Do not forward” instruction on the envelope, meaning they will be returned to the GOP if a recipient has had mail forwarded, perhaps to a summer address, or has moved. (more…)

“Just the place for a Snark” the Bellman Cried,

Recently on BlogTalk Radio My-Two-Cents, the subject of Jerome Corsi came up again. So here is my view: Jerome Corsi is a right winged rabid bat bigoted sexist hatemonger that should be netted and succumb to his disease before he infects anyone else. 

The longer you let a rabid bat feed, the more he infects. THEREFORE, DO NOT BUY HIS BOOK! DO NOT SUPPORT THE INFECTION OF FUTURE GENERATIONS! I’m not saying don’t read it. It’s always good to know the enemy. Just go to the library, or borrow it from one of those who succumbed and didn’t know his history. I know that I am probably giving the Free Republic a jolly just because they think this kind of thing is good advertisement. Here goes anyway. (more…)

Democrats- John McCain gets something and you still don’t!

Not hooked up, in line, beaming in, or otherwise whiz banged? The McCain Campaign has been sending a message. Just like Clinton did, McCain has been putting out campaign ads for the last two weeks to the folks with regular TV.

You know who those folks are, the 30-40% of the population, who get up early in the morning to watch the news, the folks who can’t afford the extras, or just don’t like to pay for what’s offered, the folks who are worried about the economy and VOTE?

They’ve been running these ads in my neighborhood. We are near Travis Air Force Base, in California. Except for Clinton’s and the local runs, we NEVER get campaign ads.

We aren’t even a contested state, are we?

Get involved today! Be a Poll Worker or a Poll Monitor!

An interesting kerfluffle has arisen in Michigan. No doubt the Obama campaign had an ulterior motive in picking Michigan. After all, they have a lot of PR work to do in making up for their own delegate theft. That Michigan might turn out to be one of the battleground states, makes the stakes all the higher. So recently this little tidbit came out:

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — U.S. stocks tanked on Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit with its worst point and percentage drop in nearly seven years after Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy and insurance giant American International Group Inc. scurried to raise capital even as its market value was axed by distraught investors. The Dow Jones Industrial Average [: $indu] plunged 504.48 points, or 4.4%, to 10,917.51. The S&P 500 ($SPX:

We trained hard–but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing. And what a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization.–Gaius Petronius Arbiter

The above quote pretty much sums up how I felt about implementation of the “No Child Left Behind” (NCLB) Act. If you haven’t read this article yet from a past teacher on the Confluence, be sure and do so:

No Child Left Undamaged

Posted on September 13, 2008 by garychapelhill

[I spent several years working as a high school teacher.  I had always wanted to be a teacher and enjoyed it very much.  I was going to make it my lifelong career.  NCLB ended all that.  After George W Bush was appointed president by the SCOTUS in 2001, he was under some pressure to extend an olive branch to the Democrats.  Instead, with the help of Ted Kennedy, he offered them a Trojan horse called The No Child Left Behind Act:]


Trojan horse is a perfect metaphor! (more…)

Texas Voter Registration Currently Ends Oct. 6th

When one of my daughters lived in Leander, Texas, for several years, she and her husband often had some trouble voting. Even though they registered and lived in the same place, they found that their names were not on the voter list. This happened several times. After the first experience, and the day of the second, she called the registrars office to confirm that they were indeed on the list. However, when they showed up to vote, they had to argue with the poll that they were still registered.

I add this small bit of family experience to the ether. I ask you to consider Lynnette Long’s growing compendium of election fraud in Texas, in line with the following: I just went on line to the Montgomery Co. website in Texas and it appears their server is down. This is probably due to the power outage. However, I think we must anticipate the possibility that the general election vote will be affected by Ike.

It appears that voter registration for the General Election currently ends in Texas on October 6th!!  This will not be a lot of time to begin to recover from all the damage Ike is currently inflicting. Re-registering, or assuring you are still registered, may not be at the top of your priority list right now.  However, I urge you as soon as you are able, to call your registrars office or go online and ascertain your status, and print a pdf copy if you need to. The State of Texas should make accommodation for this event.
