Dollar Under Siege

As our country’s financial debt grows to insurmountable levels, the devalued dollar becomes weaker by the day. As the dollar becomes more vulnerable, so does the American way of life and our prosperity and freedom. Recently, Sergey Glaziev, Putin's economy advisor, outlined a plan to rid the dollar from international trade and to stop using the dollar in their currency reserves. In a bid to help weaken the US economy, Russia plans to create a ruble-yuan swap deal in order to facilitate trade ...

Will We Cause our own Next Pandemic?

With deadly viruses, bacteria and fungi already prevalent and mutating throughout the United States and world, the potential for a possible outbreak like the influenza pandemic of 1917 is always present. Plus, when you realize that certain diseases such as the MERS virus in the Middle East and the Ebola virus in Africa are already causing havoc in those regions, one must wonder if any of these known or potentially unknown deadly diseases could take hold in this country. Worse yet, there is som...

Failure of Obamacare Evidenced by Overcrowded Emergency Rooms

As a physician, I can attest to the recent article I’ve read in the Courier Journal about more people using the emergency rooms due to Obamacare. Unfortunately, under this new law, the newly insured Americans were supposed to be utilizing their primary care physicians instead of the emergency room. However, that has turned out certainly not to be the case. With the number of visits to the ER soaring by the day, most ask why this rise is happening if more Americans are supposedly receiving cov...

New Test to Detect Genetically Modified Food

By 2013, farmers were growing genetically modified crops on more than 420 million acres of land across 28 countries. However, both the environmental and human safety of these crops still remains highly debated. Without long term, controlled human safety data available, this concern is certainly valid. Because of this concern, politicians, particularly in Europe, have created regulations to monitor GM products. However, in the United States, labeling of these foods is not mandated by the gover...

U.S. businesses are being destroyed faster than they’re being created

A new study from the Brooklyn Institution states that more US businesses are being destroyed than are being created. This trend has been most striking over the Obama administration, culminating with the worst numbers since the beginning of 2009. There is no states or regional localization for these numbers. The poor business growth and the destruction of businesses are seen throughout the entire 50 state union. The only valid conclusion when looking at these statistics is that the problem ari...

Rob Schneider Tells Chris Stigall: We Are Sliding Very Fast Towards Fascism

Recently, Chris Stigall spoke with comedian Rob Schneider. The comedian’s responses were both candid and honest. He was open about his feelings of the Obama administration and of the liberal press. He stated, “Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of.” He also admitted that he was pressured by the media and the Hollywood establishment to have a more liberal or progr...

When is the next Pandemic- Could it be MERS?

People ask me as a physician if a new, incurable virus or bacteria could spread across the world, causing a massive pandemic. Unfortunately, I tell them the answer to this question is “When, not if.” The truth is that bacterial and viral pathogens have been around for millions, if not billions of years. While modern antibiotics, on the other hand, have only been around for around for less than a measly hundred years. Plus, with worldwide travel, people not taking their full prescription o...
