A Common Ancestry; A New Way to Stop Smoking

If all the countries of Europe had a common ancestor only 1000 years ago, maybe we all had a common ancestor some 6,000 years ago?

Suppose their names were Adam and Eve?

Adam and Steve could never have produced such a family. You can’t reproduce hooking up to the rectum. You can’t even have a face to face meeting that way. One would throw his spine out of joint to try to get an approval from Medicare without a face-to-face meeting, wouldn’t he?

When God made Woman after creating all the other mammals, He greatly beautified creation by moving the mammary glands from the groin to the top of the chest. He also made marital union far more pleasant and exciting.

Can you imagine watching the Academy Awards with all those beautiful women with their gowns draped around breasts still in the groin?

Ella Mae Lopez in Sacramento was sentenced to 63 days in jail for slapping Deputy Matt Campoy as he excited the main jail in uniform at the end of his shift. Lopez kept blocking his path as Campoy tried to avoid her until she finally slapped him in the face. Lopez explained she was only trying to serve time in a smoke-free jail in order to quit smoking cold turkey.

Sixty-three days of not smoking is probably about the same success that smoking withdrawal clinics achieve.

GOP senator backs same-sex marriage

U. S. Senator Rob Portman, is the first GOP senator to back same-sex marriage, after announcing that he has a gay son and could no longer justify his opposition to same-sex marriage. That statement, in and of itself, would normally remove him from any objectivity in the debate. He was a sponsor of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which was reviewed by the Supreme Court. That case, he said, was a factor in his decision to speak out.

Or is this a factor in delaying his “coming out of the closet” announcement?


Britain investigates price fixing for the Shock Absorber Bra

The Shock Absorber Bra was once advertised by tennis player Anna Kournikova under the slogan: “Only the balls should bounce.” It is now being investigated for price fixing.

Was it really that the “price that was fixed” or that the “mammae were not fixed?”

Past Issue

Now we know why the Editor of Medical Tuesday was targeted.

Several years ago the editor of MedicalTuesday received a notice of a tax audit alleging an under payment of an amount that equaled 90% of his income that year. After six months of researching files with my CPA, essentially all of the charges were reversed. How could the IRS come up with any reasonable idea that 90% of my deductions, which were essentially the same over many years, should be disallowed?

This was obviously a targeted audit.


CEO of Starbucks, tells Christians, to sell their Starbucks stock.

Steven Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, told Christians, if they don’t like his stance on Gay marriage, to Sell their Starbuck Stock and take their business elsewhere. He said the current 10% drop in his stock price was just a normal variant. Many of us that normally visited Starbuck have followed his advice and have switched to Peet’s Coffey.

A recent walk by the normally very busy Starbucks across from my office found three workers not working. No one was in line for coffee either. You suppose the coffee crowd is taking his advice?
