    Wow Troll, that is amazing. I didn’t realize there were that many Muslims in England. Kinda make me think that England, given the birth rate and immigration trends, will be a Muslim-majority country in the year 3200.

    The earth is going to hell!

    No comment on the video? Lowest rate of HPV vaccination? Highest rate of teenage pregnancy? Lowest birthweight babies? Highest rate of babies born premature? Highest rate of infant mortality?

    Concentrated in the right wing Republican South. Especially Mississippi and South Carolina.

    I remember the moronic stooge Stupes denying all this claiming that it was the liberals in the blue states who let their kids “run wild”.

    Idiotic, willfully ignorant fool.

    Re: HPV vaccination rates. This vaccine is not mandatory. Therefore this stat includes only those who choose to get the vaccination. She doesn’t provide a stat that correlates the HPV vaccination rate to cervical cancer rates for those that choose to get the vaccination and those that choose not to.

    Re: Highest teen pregnancy stats. I’d rather have pregnant teens than abortions. Which state has the highest abortion rate? The answer is skewed by the fact that some states don’t report out-of-state abortions, didn’t report by resident status, and other factors.

    Re: Infant mortality rate. Latest data I could find on CDC was from 2007. There are many factors that affect this including unintentional injuries, congenital malformations, deformations and chromosomal dysfunctions.

    You have to thoroughly analyze the reports and data to include all factors. But that is not the purpose of this person’s show. It’s to link the “worst statistical” reports to the republicans against this public option plan.

    The HPV vaccination also does not control all forms of the virus but still it’s a breakthrough. Of course some right wing idiots think getting their kids vaccinated for HPV means promoting promiscuity. Well surprise! Guess what the kids of right wing fools in the South are doing behind their backs!

    A story for the left
    especially SJ to read. Yes, yes, it’s from the Seattle Times, but we don’t currently have another paper of repute to post stories from these days, so deal with it. It appears some liberals can’t take the heat when they’ve been in the kitchen for a good 6-1/2 years:

    [Gasparian] tried to grab the fliers being passed out by supporters of Lyndon LaRouche, a perennial presidential candidate who has likened Obama’s health-care proposals to the Nazi extermination of Jews and other “undesirables.”…Gasparian is charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault in Edmonds Municipal Court for what he describes as an attempt by “an old man to say you cannot insult the president with this outrageous campaign.”…”I saw Hitler’s soldiers. I saw swastikas every day. To call Obama stupid, even criminal — OK, that’s politics. But Hitler? It’s hurting to anyone no matter who is president,” he said.

    Where was Mr. Gasparian’s outrage when President Bush was compared to a nazi everday within the hate-filled websites like KOS and Huffpo and other media outlets for the past 6+ years?

    SJ~ this is what I mean by you comparing Glenn Beck to a nazi, Josef Goebells. You of all people should be educated enough to understand why the comparison is not only false, but probably shows a slight mental defect in the person making the accusation. Think about it.

    Also, SJ. Beck is a local kid from Mt Vernon,WA. Can you claim the same? I doubt it.

    another nice scam is when doctors prescribe drugs to supress the immune system for say lupus. now, the drug was designed to supress the immune system, which means you can get sick, which is why they say tell your doctor if you already have an infection, because with a lowered immune system you could die. then, if you get real sick or die, the lawyer sues the drug company for MAKING A FUCKING DRUG THAT DOES EXACTLY WHAT THEY SIAD IT WOULD DO, AND THE FDA AND YOUR DOCTOR BOTH KNEW IT.
    so, the doctor makes money, the drug company makes money, the lawyer makes money. and who do you think ends up making up for the money thye drug company got sued for. the poor saps who believe everything they are told.

    I don’t disagree that it is a breakthrough. My point relates to the statistical information provided by this tv show. Rather than debate that point you move on again to a right-wing nut diatribe. Did you just watch this video or did you go to CDC and actually try and read through some of the reports?

    Not all right wing fools reject vaccinations – many people are against them. If you have such proof, please provide a link.

The first thought isn’t abort abort abort.

    DCG @ 14,

    “HPV vaccination rates. This vaccine is not mandatory. Therefore this stat includes only those who choose to get the vaccination.”

    Ummm…right. But there are State laws that provide for mandatory coverage in insurance plans, and awareness campaigns (like H.B. 1802 here).

    “She doesn’t provide a stat that correlates the HPV vaccination rate to cervical cancer rates for those that choose to get the vaccination and those that choose not to.”

    So? Are you somehow implying that the vaccine isn’t effective?

    Here is a stat for you: Given that a woman has cervical cancer, there is a near-100% probability that it was caused by HPV.

    “Re: Highest teen pregnancy stats. I’d rather have pregnant teens than abortions.”

    Again, so?

    “Which state has the highest abortion rate”

    That would be NY, but that is hardly relevant to the discussion, since abortion is legal and is a significantly lower public health problem than teen pregnancy, both in terms of medical risks and societal costs.

    “Re: Infant mortality rate. Latest data I could find on CDC was from 2007. There are many factors that affect this including unintentional injuries, congenital malformations, deformations and chromosomal dysfunctions.”

    Irrelevant. Most such factors should not vary among states. The fact is, public health science recognizes infant mortality as a good indicator of a population’s level of health and access to health infrastructure.

    “You have to thoroughly analyze the reports and data to include all factors.”

    Nope…in fact Demographers have used the infant mortality rate as a health indicator for generations.

    “But that is not the purpose of this person’s show. It’s to link the “worst statistical” reports to the republicans against this public option plan.”

    Correct! That and to point out the hypocrisy of these wingnuts from states with poorest reproductive health statistics fighting against improved health care access for all people.

    Rachael didn’t mention this when she quoted the stats she did.

    “Re: Highest teen pregnancy stats. I’d rather have pregnant teens than abortions.” Again, so?

    So we aren’t having babies killed because teens made a mistake. They can put the babies up for adoption.

    but that is hardly relevant to the discussion, since abortion is legal and is a significantly lower public health problem than teen pregnancy, both in terms of medical risks and societal costs.

    But a higher risk in terms of mental health.

    That and to point out the hypocrisy of these wingnuts from states with poorest reproductive health statistics fighting against improved health care access for all people.

    Did you read through any of the CDC reports to derive the facts or just watch this video? My point again, Rachael makes her point which is to discredit the republicans. Health care access is available for all people – including illegal aliens. Some choose not to see doctors nor take care of themselves. You can offer all the health care access you want – you can’t force people to make use of it (well, unless you impose a fine such as this administration wants to do).

    So? Are you somehow implying that the vaccine isn’t effective?

    The CDC (and I’ve been reading their website) only provides this “statistical” wording: This vaccine is highly effective in preventing these types of HPV in young women who have not been previously exposed to them. The vaccine will not treat existing HPV infections.

    Puddybud,

    “Since abstinence is the only 100% way to avoid getting HPV, of course ProudASS went off like always.”

    Not really. Abstinence protects against most types of genital HPV infections, but there are many other types of HPV infections that are spread through other means.

    Still… abstinence defies the realities of human sex drive—particularly in cultures where mean age at marriage occurs long after the mean age of sexual maturation.

    “Rachael didn’t mention this when she quoted the stats she did.”

    And why would that be relevant?

    “So we aren’t having babies killed because teens made a mistake. They can put the babies up for adoption.”

    Obviously you have strong feelings against abortion. Nevertheless, those feelings are not particularly relevant. Maddow was discussing negative indicators of public health.

    “But a higher risk in terms of mental health.”

    Maybe. The scientific evidence for this claim is equivocal. If you are genuinely interested, I invite you to visit the U.W. Medical library. The current issue of Harvard Reviews of Psychiatry comprehensively reviews the literature, with an emphasis on proper methodology. (The full citation is: Robinson, Gail Erlick, Stotland, Nada L., Russo, Nancy Felipe, Lang, Joan A. and Occhiogrosso, Mallay(2009)’Is
    There an “Abortion Trauma Syndrome”? Critiquing the Evidence’,Harvard Review of Psychiatry,17:4,268 — 290)

    Here is the conclusion from the article:

    The most consistent predictor of mental disorders after abortion remains preexisting disorders, which, in turn, are strongly associated with exposure to sexual abuse and intimate violence.

    “Did you read through any of the CDC reports to derive the facts or just watch this video?”

    I have a PhD in demography and biological anthropology, do research on reproductive health for a living, and have worked directly with the CDC linked birth-death data. So…yes.

    “My point again, Rachael makes her point which is to discredit the republicans.”

    As I said, you are correct. That was her point.

    “Health care access is available for all people – including illegal aliens.”

    This is incorrect, unless you are specifically referring emergency care or some types of public health infrastructure (clean water, sewers, etc.)

    “Some choose not to see doctors nor take care of themselves.”

    Correct…this is particularly true of males, who have a phobia about doctors. At the same time, there are many people who cannot afford any “normal” health care, and many, many more who cannot afford quality health care.

    “You can offer all the health care access you want – you can’t force people to make use of it (well, unless you impose a fine such as this administration wants to do).”

    You have identified a legitimate problem; however, an even bigger problem is that many people cannot afford basic health care that they want or need.

    “The CDC (and I’ve been reading their website) only provides this “statistical” wording: This vaccine is highly effective in preventing these types of HPV in young women who have not been previously exposed to them. The vaccine will not treat existing HPV infections.”

    Right…hence the effort to vaccinate young women prior to first coitus.

  38. 47

    spews:

    SJ @ 38

    “Darryl thinks girls ought to be vaccinated so if they have sex they will not get cervical cancer.”

    Indeed…but I have a very good friend (who you’ve met) who was diagnosed with cervical cancer as a young woman. She was diagnosed early, treated, and lived to tell about it. Had she been born 20 year earlier, the outcome would have been less certain.

    So I fully admit to being less than objective in my feelings about the desirability of immunizing girls before they become sexually active.

    Puddybud is shocked SHOCKED spews:

    Interesting development Darryl. Glad your friend was diagnosed, treated and is flourishing today. All Puddy is saying is Puddy remembers the Thimerosal controversy.

    Puddy only looked at what the University of Pittsburgh, University of Michigan, Case Western Reserve, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati claimed about the over 200 types of HPV viruses. It’s transmitted through sex by person who has the infection transmitting it to another person.

    From the Women’s Clinic Web site – “Two uninfected people with no sex partners besides each other cannot contract HPV.” Mr and Mrs Puddy don’t have HPV by the grace of God!

    And SeattleJew, what is wrong with being a virgin until marriage? Please don’t become as tendentious as rujax and ylb arschloch and some other leftist pinheads here!

    Then there’s the injection. Gardasil only protects against HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18. Other HPV strains will cause the virus to occur. So 4 out of 200? So you have a 2% chance of being protected with Gardasil. Now Puddy does acknowledge Gardasil protects against 70% of the known cervical cancer types, because Gardasil does not protect against all HPV types that cause cervical cancer. Hmmm… Also the Web MD site says:

    Cervical cancer is more common in women of Hispanic descent and in people living below the poverty level.

    At over $170 a dose and three doses, how did the unemployed fool ylb arschloch afford this? No Internet for three months? Eat beans and rice for three months? Did ylb arschloch ride his bike to not buy gas for his car?

    Butt, don’t make political hay about that eh leftists? Just scream about the states and how they vote in elections right ylb arschloch because hey, when Rachel Maddow says something we must parrot it. How are those shiny full calf boots fitting you and your HA leftist buds? Just like you ylb arschloch to run from an argument due to lack of intelligence

    Like I said, it’s freaking tedious. Maybe someone else.

    Toooo Damnn Funnny fool!

    And there is the Gardasil controversy covered last month by ABC News.

    On Wednesday morning, ABC News Chief Medical Editor Dr. Timothy Johnson said that he, too, would encourage parents to learn more about the shot before getting their daughters vaccinated.

    “I am very much in favor of childhood vaccines,” Johnson told Chris Cuomo on Wednesday’s “Good Morning America,” adding that there is little doubt that the vaccine does have its benefits.

    “We know it does what it says – it prevents HPV infections,” he said.

    But he added that when it comes to comparing the benefits of the HPV vaccine against its potential risks, he believes there simply is not enough evidence to recommend to all parents that they have their daughters vaccinated</strong. PuddyEmphasis

    Funny Rachel Maddow didn’t have that on her show. Puddy checked. Butt, from WikiPedia…

    Gardasil is a 3 dose (injection) vaccine. There have been 24 million doses distributed in the United States, and there have been 13,758 Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reports following the vaccination. Ninety-three percent were reports of events considered to be non-serious (e.g., fainting, pain and swelling at the injection site (arm), headache, nausea and fever), and 7% were considered to be serious (death, permanent disability, life-threatening illness and hospitalization). There is no proven causal link between the vaccine and serious adverse effects – all reports are related by time only. That is, they are only related because the effect happened some time after the vaccination. None of the 26 confirmed deaths of women and girls who had taken the vaccine were linked to the vaccine. Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), a rare disorder that causes muscle weakness, has been reported after vaccination with Gardasil. There is no evidence suggesting that Gardasil causes or raises the risk of GBS. Additionally, there have been rare reports of blood clots forming in the heart, lungs and legs. Most of those who suffered blood clots were already at risk from other factors, such as taking combined oral contraceptive pills.

    Based on all of the information they have today, CDC continues to recommend Gardasil vaccination for the prevention of 4 types of HPV. Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, will continue to test women who have received the vaccine to determine the vaccine’s efficacy over a lifetime.

    Sounds like some of the swill Puddy remembers about Doctors and cigarettes. While the vaccine works for four types only what happens if you take the vaccine and you still develop it? Are these cases reported in literature?

    Maybe just maybe many Southern blacks are not getting the vaccine shot in those states because, maybe just maybe, the Tuskegee Experiment from the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) still rings in many people’s minds.

    Also it could be that the women are better looking in the Southern states so the natural urge to procreate is higher, so more sex. Would you really wanna procreate with Rachel Maddow? Yuck! Well maybe ylb arschloch worships to his boob tube! As Redd Foxx said follow an ugly child home and see if someone ugly opens the door.

    Of course the useless blob ProudASS and facts don’t mix like oil and water!

    The NE has the lowest rate of teen pregnancy. Teen pregnancy means exactly that, pregnancy.

    Pregnancies are calculated as the sum of births, miscarriages (including stillbirths) and abortions.

    Michael spews:

    If you don’t want to talk to your teens about reproduction, then maybe you shouldn’t have one?

    http://www.newsweek.com/id/160401
    Millions of dollars have been poured into programs to educate teenagers about safe sex and contraceptives. By most accounts, those efforts have been fairly successful in targeting and changing the sexual health habits of teens. Centers for Disease Control statistics show teenage contraceptive use to have gone up noticeably between 1995 and 2005. The decline in abortion rates among teens mirrors a decline in teen pregnancies–from 107 for every 1,000 teenagers ages 15-19 in 1982, to 75 per 1,000 teenagers in 2002 (the most recent year for which data is available).

    Puddy been sadly saying this for years Michael…

    Black teens have the highest teen pregnancy rate. For young women age 15-19, black teens are most likely to become pregnant (134 per 1,000 women). Slightly lower rates occur among Hispanics (131 per 1,000) followed by non-Hispanic whites (48 per 1,000).

    Like Puddy said which falls on the deaf ears of ylb arschloch and others black people didn’t listen to GWB and abstinence programs. Yet, these same libtardo fools will march onto this blog and scream it’s those peeps in the southern states who voted for GWB without looking at the population demographics. Hmmm…?

    Even this article blames Bush for black & hispanic teenagers whose parents overwhelmingly voted for Gorebasm and Effin Kerry?

    It is time for the Bush Administration to take some accountability for its role in this teen pregnancy crisis.

    But your report claimed

    Childbearing by unmarried women rose substantially in 2006, reaching record high levels (showing a 20% increase from 2002 data). The largest increase, 10%, was among unmarried women 25 to 29. PuddyEmphasis

    What a stupid conclusion!

    And Michael since the CDC acknowledges that there is an underreporting of doctor office abortions what does that prove?

    Nearly a third of pregnant teenagers choose abortion.
    Out of all teenage pregnancies, 29% are terminated by abortion.

    Did Tiller the baby killer report every abortion? He claimed in 1995 9200 of his performed abortions were late term? Puddy gave the evidence to SeattleJew on this blog. You can check with ylb arschloch as he has all the PuddyMissives in his tctmgr database. California doesn’t report abortion statistics to the CDC. Why not California?

    “Mothers who were not married accounted for 83.1% of the abortions. Most of the abortions tracked by the CDC were to minorities: 36.9% to African Americans, 20.3% to Hispanics, and 9.0% to “other” (may include some Hispanics). Somewhere between 43% and 45.6% of women had had at least one previous abortion. (The status of 2.6% was “unknown.”) In addition, 59% of women having abortions had already had at least one live birth.”

    This is why Puddy screams about why my peeps run to get abortions. Yet the other blacks who populate this blog have never commented on black abortions. Puddy guesses they cheer it on! Black Donkoinfanticide, first promulgated by Margaret Sanger, now done without thinking by the people she firsts suggested it be used upon!

    With regards, to HPV, the video comes to an incorrect correlation, IMO. High HPV (and teen pregnancies) rates don’t really measure how bad state healthcare is, but are a measure of state education.

    In Louisiana, the state offers free HPV vaccinations. Obviously, young women are not taking advantage of it, which leads me to believe that people are not aware of the services, or not aware of the risks of HPV.

    The majority of k-12 public schools in the south are underperforming. That is the major reason for many of the poor health scores brought up in the video.

    Teen preganancies, HPV, STD’s etc, are reduced with education. Why is eduation in the South bad? That’s a different issue than health care.

    BUT … none of this has anything to do with Darryl’s point.

    For your part, the vaccine in no way prevents virginity. Suppose your kitten falls in love with some guy who has had sex but now is faithful? Or suppose that she, being merely feline, makes a mistake or ??? Suppose the kitty is vaccinated, would that change her commitment to virginity?

    Suppose the worst happens, she is raped. And then she gets cancer? Would that be her fault? Would it be yours?

    Unless your religion extends to the reliance on G-d to treat disease extremes, then it seems to me you should rethink this one. In the meantime a friend of ours helped develop the vaccine, largely because of her commitment to woman’s health in Africa. I hope you would applaud Nancy’s efforts!

    Which states have the worst record in reproductive health?

    Since even Dr Johnson said he believes there simply is not enough evidence to recommend to all parents that they have their daughters vaccinated, so why all the screaming?

    Puddybud,

    “Puddy only looked at what the University of Pittsburgh, University of Michigan, Case Western Reserve, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati claimed about the over 200 types of HPV viruses. It’s transmitted through sex by person who has the infection transmitting it to another person.”

    Then you probably weren’t reading in context. While sexual contact is the predominant way that genital HPV infections are spread, but there are other routes of transmission for other infection sites. For example, HPV can be transmitted from mother to child during birth.

    But, most commonly, warts are an example of non-sexually transmitted HPV infection.

    “Then there’s the injection. Gardasil only protects against HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18.
    Other HPV strains will cause the virus to occur. So 4 out of 200? So you have a 2% chance of being protected with Gardasil.”

    This is flawed statistical thinking. The assumption that all 200 strains are equally likely and equally likely to be transmitted is wrong. An implicit assumption in your statement is that all 200 strains are equally dangerous—that’s wrong, too.

    “Now Puddy does acknowledge Gardasil protects against 70% of the known cervical cancer types, because Gardasil does not protect against all HPV types that cause cervical cancer.”

    On the other hand, flu vaccines don’t protect against all types of flu. That doesn’t mean flu vaccines have no utility.

    “Cervical cancer is more common in women of Hispanic descent and in people living below the poverty level.”

    Your point?

    “At over $170 a dose and three doses, how did the unemployed fool ylb arschloch afford this?”

    YLB is neither a teen, nor a female.

    But, in general, state governments can play a strong role in making the vaccine readily available and affordable.

    The assumption that all 200 strains are equally likely and equally likely to be transmitted is wrong.

    Okay, then why do doctors tell women who get the vaccine to contually have pap smears against the other 196+ viruses?

    “At over $170 a dose and three doses, how did the unemployed fool ylb arschloch afford this?” YLB is neither a teen, nor a female.

    Your claim of a mother passing it onto her child has to have a cause for that effect. How did the mother get the HPV to pass onto the child if it takes skin to skin rubbing in the genitalia area to acquire the HPV virus? Somehow that is lost on you.

    The recommendation persists for early diagnosis of cervical cancer (and some other medical conditions). But what does your question have to do with my statement that your assumptions were wrong?

    My wrong assumptions? Puddy’s wrong assumptions are from the various web sites Puddy placed on this site earlier… They specifically said you can still get HPV so get checked regularly for HPV. Puddy acknowledges there are other reasons to get Pap Smears and is NOT saying anything otherwise. Mrs Puddy gets them on a regular schedule. That’s how we know neither of us have HPV!

    Other HPV strains will cause the virus to occur. So 4 out of 200? So you have a 2% chance of being protected with Gardasil.”

    This is the kind of faulty logic that occurs when someone with the analytical ability of a a tree frog tries to comment on subject matter way over their puny heads.

    First, while there are 200 strains of HPV there are only about 35-40 that can infect the genital areas of men and women. So Puddy, as usual, has his facts wrong and mixed up. Most of the other cause general wats on the skin in other areas. So much for the 2% figure that Puddy dreams up out of thin air.

    Second, HPV types 16 and 18 cause about 70% of all cervical canceralone. As Daryl pointed out, different strains may be more common. But also there are different strains that may be more likely to cause cancer. So strains may not be cervical cancer risks at all.

    So Puddy’s third grade logic, inability to undertand basic science and flawed math mean that his comments are worth ….absolutely nothing.

    And Sue @83, thanks for your Puddy worship. It is nice to know that you consider someone that ignorant to be intelligent. I guess it says something about your lack of intelligence, too.

    Puddybud…here are a couple of free lessons from Dr. Darryl:

    1. Mother-child transmission of HPV is not considered sexual transmission. (That the mother was likely infected via sexual contact is entirely irrelevant).

    2. “Skin to skin rubbing in the genitalia area” is NOT the only way to acquire HPV. That is almost always how one acquires a genital HPV infection. However, HPV is a very common non-genital infection as well. Got warts? You have HPV. That was all I was getting at when I corrected your statement:

    Since abstinence is the only 100% way to avoid getting HPV…

    Abstinence is an effective way to protect against genital HPV infections, but not all HPV infections are genital.

    “My wrong assumptions? Puddy’s wrong assumptions are from the various web sites Puddy placed on this site earlier…”

    You stated:

    Other HPV strains will cause the virus to occur. So 4 out of 200? So you have a 2% chance of being protected with Gardasil.

    …and I pointed out that you have some mistaken assumptions in that “2% chance of being protected” statement. In particular, the 2% figure would require a uniform distribution of transmission/infection for each strain. This is incorrect.

    “They specifically said you can still get HPV so get checked regularly for HPV.”

    Even so…your statement that “So you have a 2% chance of being protected…” is incorrect.

    “Puddy acknowledges there are other reasons to get Pap Smears and is NOT saying anything otherwise.”

    Sure…I didn’t assume otherwise.

    “Mrs Puddy gets them on a regular schedule.”

    Excellent!

    “That’s how we know neither of us have HPV!”

    The PAP tests tell you that Ms. Puddy doesn’t exhibit cervical dysplasia (i.e. precancerous or cancerous cervical cells). The only sure test for HPV is an HPV DNA assay (perhaps this was done at the same time?)

    “If you don’t veer you will stay clear!”

    If you both have had only one sexual partner (i.e. each other) your entire life, then you are almost certainly HPV-free (for sexually transmitted strains). But even if one or both of you were sexually active prior to establishing your monogamous relationship, there is a good chance any infection has passed.

    Darryl wrote that “torture” approved or tolerated by Cheney-Bush 2.0 was blatant and unconscionable. Blatant? Bullshit. That’s why we’re debating the Inspector General’s report that was used several years ago to exculpate, and that’s used now by the ACLU and Darryl to incriminate. Unconscionable? To Darryl, the ACLU, and Holder, maybe, but not to real Americans.

    That said, lapsed conservative Andrew Sullivan in The Atlantic strengthens Darryl’s strong case against Cheney, Bush, real Americans, and me. We are indeed tied in knots by our treaties and entangling alliances that were probably intended to tie us in knots.

    Liberal progressives who have been expansive and elastic about law and the Constitution have suddenly become strict constructionists about those laws and treaties that tie us down and that make us vulnerable. Liberals have belatedly found one narrow area of law that will permit no interpretation but their own, and they’ll find liberal courts to give them their way.

    That’s because liberals rig the game to always get their way.

    In October or November 2001, at about the very moment the first orange-jumpsuit terrorist was climbing off the plane in Cuba, Jim McDermott started whining about unconscionable torture at Gitmo. Thought that would be the end of McDermott. Thought that even Seattle would see that somebody so unhinged had no business being in politics, business, or anything else except Gitmo or Western State.

    So what happens? Drip by drip, McDermott insanity joins all the other progressive drips and becomes the progressive mainstream that runs right through the middle of Obama’s America. And when the progressives get their way, when their war on America is won and when America is shaken out of its shoes because we couldn’t waterboard the next KSM, McDermott and Darryl and the rest of the left will blame everything on Cheney and Bush.

    Norman Borlaug arguably the greatest American of the 20th century died late Saturday after 95 richly accomplished years. The very personification of human goodness, Borlaug saved more lives than anyone who has ever lived. … prevented the global famines widely predicted when the world population began to skyrocket following World War II.
    In 1999, the Atlantic Monthly estimated that Borlaug’s efforts combined with those of the many developing-world agriculture-extension agents he trained and the crop-research facilities he founded in poor nations saved the lives of one billion human beings.
    … Borlaug developed the high-yield, low-pesticide “dwarf” wheat upon which a substantial portion of the world’s population now depends for sustenance.
    … Global grain yields more than doubled during the period, from half a ton per acre to 1.1 tons; yields of rice and other foodstuffs improved similarly. Hunger declined in sync: From 1965 to 2005, global per capita food consumption rose to 2,798 calories daily from 2,063, with most of the increase in developing nations. In 2006, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization declared that malnutrition stands “at the lowest level in human history,” despite the global population having trebled in a single century.
    … Paul Ehrlich gained celebrity for his 1968 book “The Population Bomb,” in which he claimed that global starvation was inevitable for the 1970s and it was “a fantasy” that India would “ever” feed itself. Instead, within three years of Borlaug’s arrival, Pakistan was self-sufficient in wheat production; within six years, India was self-sufficient in the production of all cereals.
    … Borlaug became the target of critics who denounced him because Green Revolution farming requires some pesticide and lots of fertilizer. Trendy environmentalism was catching on, and affluent environmentalists began to say it was “inappropriate” for Africans to have tractors or use modern farming techniques. Borlaug told me a decade ago that most Western environmentalists “have never experienced the physical sensation of hunger. They do their lobbying from comfortable office suites in Washington or Brussels. If they lived just one month amid the misery of the developing world, as I have for 50 years, they’d be crying out for tractors and fertilizer and irrigation canals and be outraged that fashionable elitists in wealthy nations were trying to deny them these things.” Environmentalist criticism of Borlaug and his work was puzzling on two fronts. First, absent high-yield agriculture, the world would by now be deforested. … three times as much food using little additional land.
    … Environmentalist criticism was doubly puzzling because in almost every developing nation where high-yield agriculture has been introduced, population growth has slowed … Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, announced a major expansion of high-yield agriculture throughout Africa. …

    Let’s keep score: Teddy Kennedy, one dead waterboarded blonde and one Portuguese Waterdog, extolled by Dan Schorr and all the MSM as “a national treasure.” Norman Borlaug? Bitchslapped by bitch Jill Richardson.

    Sources for HPV information:

    Kumar et al, Robbin’s Pathological Basis of Human Disease, 7th edition

    Salient points: HPV is implicated in 95% of cervical cancer with HPV DNA detected in 95% of the samples.

    This data helps to establish the link between HPV and cervical cancer. The causality is further enhanced by the actions of specific HPV genes (E6 and E7) that prevent cells from undergoing apoptosis (killing themselves or dying naturally) and this probably predisposes to cervical cancer.

    There may be other co-facotrs that contribute to cervical cancer, but HPV is the only risk factor that has been identified and has such a large effect.

    Persistent infection, decreased cell-mediated immune status, genetic predispostion, poor nutrition and other factors may play a role in progression to cervical cancer.

    Puddy @ 119,

    You still are looking at the probabilities wrong. The study you cite gives the probability of each HPC strain given a woman has an abnormal pap test. It finds that 70 of 123 women were positive for “high risk” HPC strains and that 32 of the 70 infections were of high-risk strain (16 and 18) that the vaccine might have protected them from.

    But the probability of getting cervical cancer is not the same for all strains. Thus, a vaccine that suppresses only strain 6 (which has a very low probability of becoming cancer) is not nearly as effective as a vaccine that protects against strain 16 (which has the highest probability of becoming cancerous).

    In other words, the study you cited estimates the prevalence of HPV strains in females with abnormal pap tests.

    The important public health issue is the prevalence of HPV GIVEN that a woman has developed cancer, because that uncovers the different rates that different strains cause cancer at. So, for example, this study of 2000 woman with cervical cancer found ~66% are infected with strains 16 and 18.

    Fat Rabbit tells us often that Republicans are all about starving and killing poor people. Gregg Easterbrook (see his eulogy to Norman Borlaug, above) wrote ten years ago that Borlaug’s war on poverty and starvation was derailed by overfed American progressive fanatics and arugula snobs who mau maued the Rockefeller Foundation into pulling Borlaug’s funding.

    To be fair and balanced, the arugula snobs shown here were not necessarily the same neofascist fanatics who starved poor people, but it’s absolutely true that Michelle Obama today shut down downtown D.C. so she could do an arugula splurge at a farmers’ market. It was sort of a reprise of a recent New York Obama date night when B & M diverted thousands of your dollars that should have been used to help the poor find health care.

    (Farmers’ Market footnote: This gets us back to Goldy’s squeeze, loco “locavore” Jill Richardson. Jill, Michael Pollan, and other food fascists believe that America’s cheap food policy is an Agribusiness conspiracy against the poor. They apparently think the poor would be better served by the kind of pricy food we had back in the good old days when only fat-cat plutocrats could afford to get fat.)

So: the Navy owes us a refund for allowing a gunless idiot like SJ to matriculate and graduate. Also, everybody needs to read about Lyndon taking Bobby to the LBJ Ranch to shoot Bambi. When the recoil knocked Bobby on his ass (shitass, said Lyndon), LBJ sorrowfully siad, “Son, you got learn to handle a gun like a man.”

Meanwhile, Miller’s noises guy Jim Ward says that Prescott Bush helped Nazis during WWII. He lies. Or he’s thinking of old Joe Kennedy who was totally in the tank for Nazis after September 1939.
    * Thomas Frank, author of What’s the Matter with Hymietown, wonders why American Jews keep voting against their own interests. Oh, wait. That’s Norman Podhoretz.Why, he asks, did almost 80% of America’s Jews vote for Democrat from Jesse Jackson’s Wright-wing of the Democrat Party. That would be Jeremiah Wright who recently said that “them Jews” are keeping him away from Obama.
    Democrats got a lock on the Jewish vote when FDR turned away a boatload of Jewish refugees seeking asylum from gas chambers. Then FDR refused to permit the bombing of Nazi concentration camps. Then Jews voted for Joe Kennedy’s son. Then America’s Jews went all the way with LBJ when old Dan Schorr accused Jewish Episcopalian Barry Goldwater of palling around with the Waffen SS. Then Jesse Jackson went to Hymietown and Al Sharpton burned down Freddy’s.
    * But that was then. Now, says Medved, Obama’s popularity in Israel is down to 4%. Four. Percent. GWB’s was 88%. Sure glad our new improved president is restoring America’s prestige. Making Israel more vulnerable by dismantling missile defense to appease the KGB will surely make us even more popular and respected.

    All the president’s men had said last winter that a low-income family (exempted by candidate Obama from any tax increases) would have only a teeny tiny C&T tax increase to save the planet. But the planet’s in so much peril from global warming or cooling, pick one, that a tiny tax increase wasn’t quite enough.

Didn’t HA Liberals ridicule this? So ACORN is wrong liberals?

    From a link… “On March 27, 2003 the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) lost its final appeal of a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ruling, which found that ACORN had violated the rights of its employees to unionize. Those unacquainted with ACORN’s history may find this decision simply ironic because of the organization’s active public support of increased unionization, particularly among low-skill service sector employees.”

    “In reality, ACORN organizers typically work 54-hour weeks for a salary of $18,000. Accounting for overtime hours, ACORN pays a wage of $5.67 per hour, less than half the level demanded by many proposed “living wage” ordinances that ACORN supports. In some states, such as California and Oregon, this level is below the state-mandated minimum wage. ACORN’s leaders do not pay their own employees a “living wage,” because they know that doing so would limit the number of employees they could hire. This is the same economic reality commonly cited by employers subjected to ACORN’s above-market wage mandates.”

    Did you see the DNC Beck attack video on CZARS?

    The only thing this fool and the DNC Hellfire add forget to add is the mental temperment of the Bush czars vs “the messiah’s” czars. ‘Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself.’ – candidate Barack Obama

    Hmmm… Van Jones the communist who’s STORM’s official manifesto, titled, “Reclaiming Revolution,” mysteriously disappeared from the Internet…

    Cass Sunstein the animals need lawyers advocate… Cass Sunstein advocating a policy under which the government would “presume” someone has consented to having his or her organs removed for transplantation into someone else when they die unless that person has explicitly indicated that his or her organs should not be taken. Soylent Green anybody?…

    Carol Browner one of 14 leaders of Commission for a Sustainable World Society, another socialist group, was magically scrubbed from the Internet…

    John P. Holdren who wrote: “A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States.” John also advocates draconian population control methods like those in China. Well John, try it first on your Democratic friends. Call up some of the HA faithful and have them start.

    This is just the tip of the Czar iceberg HA Libtardos!

    GWB didn’t have whackamoles in Czar positions DNC. But bring that hellfire. We know who directs your thoughts now!

    Puddy–
    Good morning.
    Beck and Hannity are really on this CZAR and Obama Appointee thing…complete with tapes of these Leftist Pinheads drivel comin’ right out there own mouths.
    Can’t beat that for impact.

    Folks are acknowledging more & more that Obama is a hardcore Leftist.
    America won’t stand for that.
    Worse yet, Obama is a puppet for the hardcore Loons he has appointed who make the HA krowd look like Conservatives!
    Obama’s appointees will continue to fall like dominoes. In the end, in 2012 Obama will have to justify all these KOOKS to the voters.
    Good luck.
    Keep up the fine posting Puddy.
    These KLOWNS are probably getting the hives from all the TRUTH you are throwing at ‘em!
