WEB Notes: So now the government wants to come after what little bit you have left. Yes, the Republican and Democrat vermin that you voted for. “Make American Great Again” went out with a whimper, as the sound of a ballon slowly releasing the air.
Government officials receive fantastic benefits, but apparently you are keeping too much of the money you earned and they want a bigger cut. Tax cuts? Give me a break. Remember, 40% of you have saved nothing for retirement and they want even more.
LONDON — Are you handy enough that if a lightbulb went out in your home you’d be able to change it? Believe it or not, one in five people aren’t so skilled. In fact, a new survey of people in the United Kingdom finds not only do about 20 percent of people not know how to change a bulb — the same number aren’t sure how to boil an egg, either.
The British insurance company Aviva recently released their annual Home Reportwhich detailed, among numerous findings about how people do work around the house, relatively common tasks that people encounter.

This information about hair has been hidden from the public since the Viet Nam War .
Our culture leads people to believe that hair style is a matter of personal preference, that hair style is a matter of fashion and/or convenience, and that how people wear their hair is simply a cosmetic issue. Back in the Viet Nam war however, an entirely different picture emerged, one that has been carefully covered up and hidden from public view.
In the early nineties, Sally [name changed to protect privacy] was married to a licensed psychologist who worked at a VA Medical hospital. He worked with combat veterans with PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. Most of them had served in Viet Nam. Continue reading

WEB Notes: Trump had made this known even before he was sworn in. We reported on December 8th 2016 that he would “work something out” for illegal immigrant “children”.
This guy has flip flopped so many times now he should consider being a gymnast. I actually feel bad for those who bought into the lies this con man put forward. But what did we expect? 90% of Americans did not want him or Clinton to be our next president. As we said, the people never had a choice to begin with.

Dr. Gary Fettke, MD, of Australia and Professor Tim Noakes, MD, of South Africa are both being attacked for saving lives by promoting the low carbohydrate high fat diet.
In the case of orthopedic surgeon Dr. Fettke, his offence against the Australian medical establishment was to teach his patients how to use the low carb high fat (LCHF) diet to reverse their type 2 diabetes and avoid the amputation of their feet and legs. He and his wife Belinda Fettke established two clinics to help people adopt a low carb high fat eating lifestyle. The sanctions placed on him prevent him from recommending or speaking about the LCHF diet to anyone, anywhere, and at any time for the rest of his life.  Continue reading

US Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday that the United States would “honor” a refugee resettlement agreement forged with Australia in the closing days of the Obama administration, despite it previously being described by US President Donald Trump as a “dumb deal.”
Pence made the commitment — subject to the refugees passing stringent US vetting procedures — at a joint news conference in Sydney with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, with whom Trump reportedly had a testy first call because of the refugee issue. Continue reading

It is a common misconception that the word Human comes from the latin Humanus derived from the words Humus, meaning earth or ground and man.

This deception of etymology is to cover up the true origins of the word human.
It is actually a composition of the words hue (?-900) and man, together literally meaning the colour of man or the appearance of man. Continue reading
