Notice from: Gordon King
To all of the followers of this blog, I would like to inform you that I have fallen ill as of two days ago. While I would like to continue posting as I have, I am not physically able to at this time. I will however, try my best to continue to post at least a few articles each day. I expect to be back on my feet by the end of the week, the Lord willing!
I would like to thank you all for being patient, encouraging, and kind to me. Without your kindness and encouragement this blog would be most difficult for me to continue on a daily basis, and that’s when I feel good! So I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
God Bless to you all, may the peace and comfort of the Lord be upon you!
More than 370 people in 15 states have fallen sick due to a cyclospora outbreak, possiblly the result of a contaminated packages of salad mix.
An outbreak of a diarrheal disease that has sickened 372 people in 15 states since June may be linked to a bagged salad mix.
“The evidence points to a salad mix containing iceberg and romaine lettuce, as well as carrots and red cabbage, as the source of the outbreak reported in Iowa and Nebraska,” Steven Mandernach, chief of the Food and Consumer Safety Bureau of the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, said in a release Tuesday.
The investigation by Iowa and Nebraska health officials found that at least 80% of people in those states infected in the cyclospora outbreak had eaten a prepackaged salad mix.
….as insurance rates double or triple for those who choose to take care of their health

According to an analysis just published by the Wall Street Journal, healthy people will pay double or triple their current health insurance rates under Obamacare. Rates for those with chronic disease, however, will be reduced as all the healthy people subsidize their disease lifestyles.
The net effect is that people who choose to follow a healthy lifestyle — eating well, taking nutritional supplements, exercising and avoiding junk foods — will be financially punished by the federal government while those who choose to follow a disease and sickness lifestyle — eating junk foods, taking meds, refusing to exercise, etc. — will be rewarded by government.
This is the essence of socialized medicine: punish responsible citizens while rewarding those who refuse to take care of their health.
