But see also WHO Position of the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety regarding concerns raised by paper about the safety of thiomersal-containing vaccines.

Listen to the voice of wisdom and reason in a wilderness of partisan rhetoric -- No political insanity, no conservative hypocrisy, no liberal foolishness -- Just straight talk, straight at you, and that’s no bull!!

NoBullU will broadcast today from 4:05 to 6:00 p.m. at 1330 AM WEBY and on line.


The NoBullU New Year's Resolution and why you don't disagree with me

Follow-up to fact-free fantasies: don't be duped;

Local and regional: Happy Centennial!, non-Christians not welcome in AL, and local Taj Mahal, or poisoned well politics?: first the ECUA admin building and Perdido Key fire station and community center, and now a new sports complex -- can't the kids just play in the streets;

National and international: I'm waiting, where's the balanced budget, time to call the Republi-CON bluff, first day, first broken promise -- no $100 billion budget cut -- then broken promises two three and four -- the Republi-con health care repeal bill does conform to the pledge to include the statutory basis, identify spending cuts to pay for the $230 billion cost, and Republi-cons say no amendments,
the reason -- health care industry bottomline, time to call the Republi-CON bluff on health care, China déjà vu, but what can ya do?, in the Navy, it's not like not used to be, but maybe that's a good thing, Marriage 101, Happy 400th Birthday to the King James Bible, what Obama can learn from the Republi-CON Reagan myth and Republi-CON fear, anger, hatred = violence yet again;
an example of the fear, anger, hatred industry

Fun stuff: first Pluto, now Ophiuchus, why are they messin with the heavans;


Donate to a good cause: help the friends of a former instructor at the Naval EOD school at Eglin Air Force Base, Gunnery Sgt. John Hayes, who was detachment company gunnery sergeant from June 2007 to June 2010 and taught several courses and was recently wounded in Afghanistan.

I'll discuss anything, but expect a no mercy take down if you are a party hack pandering to fear, anger and hatred, because the truth sure makes it hard out there for the party pimps.

So tune-in, call-in, but only if you can handle the truth and some ass kickin' discussion of politics and current events.

Republi-CON Exceptionalism

"One thing that is endlessly amusing about the contemporary right is their comical lack of historical proportion, their frequent tendency to compare their current situation to the plight endured by history's leading victims of oppression, persecution, and genocide." Read the Washington Post, Delusions of world-historical grandeur.

Time to Call the Republi-CON Bluff

UPDATE V: "Republicans are popping up with new schemes on the debt ceiling. They don't just want to extract big cuts in spending; they actually want to refuse to raise the debt ceiling." Read the Washington Post, Do the GOP debt-limit schemes make sense?

I dare, no I double dare them to not raise the debt-ceiling limit and balance the budget immediately!

UPDATE IV: Read The New York Times, About That $100 Billion, which notes:

"It has been four months since John Boehner, now speaker of the House, first proposed to cut $100 billion from this year’s budget, an idea that was later elevated to a “pledge to America” in the 2010 campaign. Last week, Mr. Boehner finally specified his first actual cut: $35 million from House lawmakers’ office budgets.

Precisely because it is puny and painless, the cut passed the House with broad support, showing once again that the path to bipartisanship in Washington is paved with giveaways (like deficit-increasing tax cuts) and grandstanding (like trivial spending cuts dressed up as deficit reduction).

The road to fiscal responsibility is a harder one. . .

House Republicans claim that voters elected them in November to cut spending. Let’s hear the specifics, and then see what the people want."

UPDATE III: "Another conservative economic miracle bites the dust, with implications for the nation. . . Right now, triumphant conservatives in Washington are declaring that they can cut taxes and still balance the budget by slashing spending. Yet they haven’t been able to do that even in Texas, which is willing both to impose great pain (by its stinginess on health care) and to shortchange the future (by neglecting education). How are they supposed to pull it off nationally, especially when the incoming Republicans have declared Medicare, Social Security and defense off limits?" Read The New York Times, The Texas Omen.

UPDATE II: Will the Naive-ocrat be chumps again? Read the Washington Post, Raise debt limit to avoid national catastrophe, Geithner warns Congress.

UPDATE: Countdown to April 2011, when the debt ceiling is reached. The Naive-ocrats were chumps last time. But here is their chance to call the Republi-con bluff. And some are predicting a political 'blood bath.' Why? Because Republi-cons aren't " interested in helping the economy as long as a Democrat is in the White House." Read The New York Times, There Will Be Blood.

The Republi-con jihad against America continues.

Fear, anger, and hatred -- a great campaign strategy, but not much of a governing philosophy.

Now "[t]he new Republican House majority is facing a choice between cultural or intellectual dissent." Read The New York Times, G.O.P. Faces Choice in How to Oppose.

The Naive-ocrats have been too stupid to call the bluff -- give the public what it claims it wants until they don't want it anymore.
