Supplements Made From Nothing


Health supplements are made out of nothing?

And they don't benefit the health and well being of anyone?

What the hell?

You would think that, in a just society, the outright quackery and for-profit bullshit of supplement companies--Herbalife, I am staring right at you, you sons of bitches--would lead to regulation and common sense rules protecting consumers.

Guess again.

We need real reform for consumer protection in this country, and as long as we're stuck in the politics of stupid, we'll never get it. We have grown men leading state governments and men who hold elected office who are unafraid to tell us their expert opinions on how vaccines are dangerous, but we can't get anything done about snake oil salesmen who prey on consumers and sell them garbage.

Out of My Mind on Dope and Speed


The only way to get a hold of David Cameron, who is the Prime Minister of Great Britain, is to be out of your mind on coke and booze:
The man who claims to be behind the hoax phone calls to David Cameron and to GCHQ has said he was “off [his] face on booze and cocaine” at the time.

The prankster allegedly rang up The Sun newspaper to boast "I've just made monkeys out of GCHQ” minutes after his phone conversation with the Prime Minister.

He told the newspaper the situation was “hilarious” and added: "I'm definitely going to do it again. It was so easy."

The caller, who successfully obtained a private mobile number for director Robert Hannigan from GCHQ, is thought to have contacted their switchboard pretending to be a Downing Street aide
 Isn't this an indication that David Cameron is actually doing his job? When a social engineering effort successfully penetrates the security apparatus of the state, don't you feel better knowing that the man responsible for defending your country is actually the fellow who picks up his phone, ready to do his job?
