Well, the guy is pretty close to Pachy …..

Women Wearing Jeans Are Reason Behind Earthquakes: JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman

During a press conference at a local hotel in Islamabad, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islami Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman asked the Pakistani armed forces to launch a military operation against women wearing jeans all over Pakistan.

According to him, the immodesty of women is the cause behind earthquakes, inflation and other kinds of disasters.

Fazlur Rehman went on to say that a woman who is not covered like a ‘sack of flour’ is a mobile weapon of mass destruction for her state and that Pakistan has multitude of such nuclear missiles in all its major cities.

Rehman then blamed ‘immodest women’ for the Baluchistan crisis, lack of energy supply and the deteriorating security situation in Pakistan.

Fazlur Rehman was suggesting that, if these women are wrapped in sacks and kept inside homes and if the Shariah law was in place, then the Taliban brothers would not be attacking Pakistan.

Fazlur Rehman also talked about the demerits of the operation against the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Justifying his angst, Fazlur Rehman said that Taliban were not Pakistan’s enemy and the forces needed to target the real enemies of Pakistan.

Providing a solution he continued saying that once Allah stops delivering his wrath via the Taliban, the economy would automatically improve through foreign investment leading to improvement in the energy situation.

Rehman then openly requested the army chief and the prime minister to openly declare war against Pakistani women and launch a military operation.

He should become a climate scientist.

      Imagine what that will do to the Statins business!
      Oh wait…
      “Due to patent expiration, most of the block-buster branded statins have been generic since 2012, including atorvastatin, the largest-selling branded drug.”
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statin#Available_forms
      …so we don’t actually need the “Cholesterin kills you” lie anymore… Fine, so drop it! What a surprise.

      • cdquarles says:

        There is a twist to this story, which dates back to the 40s. it is now known that local immune response modifies local fat/cholesterol metabolism, via local hormonal and cell-signaling chemicals like cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP. Local immune response produces activated oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorous acid, nitric oxide, modified triglycerides and cholesterol. The local cholesterol gets oxidized, which in turn ramps up the local immune response, which adds to the various chemicals associated with immune response and apoptosis of metabolically stressed or diseased cells. The final pathway of apoptosis is calcium poisoning of the mitochondrial membrane enzymes that convert acetyl coenzyme-A into carbon dioxide and water via membrane saponification and this results in cell death from the disruption of the cell’s electrochemical fuel cell.

        The programmed response is designed to ‘wall off’ pathogenic conditions. Sometimes, however, the modulation fails and you get abscesses, which result in chronic immune activation, or septicemia; which in turn can cause the body’s immune system to kill itself. Steroid hormones modulate this, and that’s why people are given a host of various immune modulators, of which prednisone was shown to be locally made as well as secreted by the adrenal glands. Since we don’t always know which came first and since we don’t always remind ourselves that post hoc, ergo propter hoc is a logical fallacy; incorrect inferences become taught as conventional wisdom.

        Anyway, the very processes that were put in place that turn a fertilized egg into a fully grown human are also the final cause of the death of the chemical body. Cholesterol vs. inflammation, which came first and which caused what in cardiovascular disease has gone back and forth over 70 years now.

        I say that there will never be a cure for ‘chronic’ medical conditions, for they are the ‘diseases of long life’, if you will. Curing one set of conditions simply has allowed people who would have succumbed to infections or other traumas to live long enough to have more of the ‘span of a man’s life shall be 120 years’ be realized.

        Statins will stick around, for there are subsets of people for whom these will help them survive cardiovascular events and will reduce the frequency of them in the future for these people. They just won’t be given to everyone, nor should they have been so given.

    • gator69 says:

      A friend of mine was put on statins for his “high cholesterol” and wound up with severe neuropathy. One of the possible side effects of statins is neuropathy, but it took three years for him to find a doctor who recognized this, and by then it was too late to correct. Even after he stopped taking his statin drug, his condition continued to worsen, and he now has difficulty speaking. From his waist up his body is withering away, leaving him with the appearance of a holocaust survivor, and we fear it may eventually paralyze him so severly that he will no longer be able to breathe on his own. He has not had use of his hands for over two years now.

      • cdquarles says:

        Ouch.

        I want to say that neuropathy was a possible side effect of high dose niacin, which was and still is used to treat ‘high’ cholesterol. I might be misremembering this, though; and I don’t feel like checking. Okay, I checked: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9671841.

        While perusing this, don’t forget that we ‘discovered’ vitamins = vital amines by studying deficiency diseases. Neuropathies were known to be caused by B vitamin deficiencies. Here is one that is caused by use of very large amounts of a vitamin. I wonder if and what work has been done to see what metabolic pathways are involved here.

        Part of the issue is that the term neuropathy is a kind of a catch-all term, like cancer. It covers a number of conditions that have different causes while showing similar signs and symptoms. As is true with much of medicine, the signs and symptoms are often ‘stereotypical’ and result from disruption of a chain of chemical reactions and/or responses to disruptions of a chain of chemical reactions.

          I had a minor run in with neuropathy peripheral when I was taking Aleve for knee pain last year. I was taking one tablet per day, and did so for about a week and a half. I found myself waking up with numb thumbs, they would regain some feeling during the day, but not fully. I went online to find out if this was a side effect of Aleve, and it is. They just call it “numbness or tingling in the hands, feet, or lips”.

          I immediately stopped taking Aleve, and over the course of the past year I have regained near full feeling in my thumbs again. I later found more detailed dosage info that said one should not take Aleve for more than 10 days in a row.

          -How many days can I take Aleve?

          Do not take longer than 10 consecutive days for pain or 3 days for fever, unless directed by a doctor.

          Needless to say, I just deal with my knee pain now. I have never been a fan of our “pill for everything” medical culture, and the only pills I take now are supplements. My last doctor was a pill man, and I stopped seeing him because of that issue.

        • DirkH says:

          Gator, did you try adding http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyaluronan to your diet? (contained in Gelatin, which is used in e.g. jellybeans, but also available as supplement)

          In my opinion it helps in replenishing knee cartilage, when I have knee pain, I get some of it and it helps.

        • gator69 says:

          I have tried several different supplements over the years (my first injury was 35 years ago), including hyaluronan, and what I find works best is simply PT. I have little cartilage left, chondromalacia patella, loose ligaments, as well as a knee cap that tracks off center. Both my knees have had multiple injuries over the years, and I was told they were never that solid to begin with. Thankfully I can still hike all day, and do not walk with a limp. My doctors expect my knees to continue to decline, and they have done everything short of replacement. Keeping the muscles that surround my knees strong is the key. Amazingly I have less pain now than I did in previous decades, and I now take nothing for pain, or supplementally.

        “I want to say that neuropathy was a possible side effect of high dose niacin, which was and still is used to treat ‘high’ cholesterol.”

        Wikipedia page about statins also mentions neuropathy as possible side effect though.
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statin#Adverse_effects

        • cdquarles says:

          Correct, pace the linked Southern Medical Journal paper from 1998. People are now aware of ‘statin’s’ association with neuropathies, but what isn’t so widely known is that niacin, when used for the treatment of high cholesterol is also associated with neuropathies.

        • suyts says:

          Right, Cd, ….. back in the day, I told those people this wasn’t good. Yes, it’s a water soluble vitamin, but, one can always have too much of anything.

          But, then, fighting something we don’t even have a clue about was idiocy to begin with. The lunatics don’t wait for real observation. Maddening stuff with Niacin, and Cholesterol ……. but, it’s one of the reasons why I was pretty sure the climate lunatics didn’t know WTF they were talking about. Science isn’t what it used to be.

          cd, you’ll appreciate this
          My cholesterol was little high…and because I smoke…my doctor insisted I start Lipitor….gave me a huge bag of “samples” and told me to come back in two months….
          I gave the samples to a friend of ours that believes in that crap….

          I stopped eating a big bowl of BlueBell after dinner….stopped the bacon for breakfast…and walked to the highway and back every other night after dinner….it’s about a 45 min walk

          Went back in two months….my doctor told me….See, the Lipitor worked

          I went back on BlueBell…..

        • gator69 says:

          My last doctor prescribed blood pressure medicine for a borderline pressure issue without ever asking me about diet, exercise, or lifestyle. The Lisinopril he prescribed gave me an irritating cough, and made me lethargic, even though it was the lowest dose possible. I stopped taking it, as well as seeing him.

          I may be something of a freak, as my biody does not like most medications, and I can tell the difference when I start or stop most meds. As a child I was given phenobarbital for an allergic reaction, and discovered I am also allergic to phenobarbitol, which sent me into fits. To this day I avoid even aspirin.

        • cdquarles says:

          @Lat,

          Your results are what some people get with changing habits; but that will not be true of everyone.

          @Gator,

          Your results are also not unheard of, for some people really can’t take what others can. It reminds me of the aphorism, “One man’s meat is another man’s poison”, though that isn’t to be taken literally, there are cases where that is the literal truth.

          What frightened me most about ‘modern’ socialized medicine is that not only will medical innovations stop happening, the ‘you’re a number in a budget ledger’ mentality is going to kill people and the bureaucrats who kill people will not be subject to the criminal homicide laws, one way or another.

        • Latitude says:

          cd, what irks me is that with all the known side effects…my doctor should have tried that first

        • cdquarles says:

          The standard spiel that I’ve heard and remember is that med x is to be an addition to dietary changes and getting regular exercise. Thus, I’m a bit surprised that diet and exercise were not mentioned or tried, or the doc assumed that you had done those and failed.

          Anyway, I’m one of those who scoffs at dietary manipulation and exercise therapy as the be-all and end-all treatment for the ‘diseases of long life’.

    ok, reading through the comments of that article helped 😀

    Rule of thumb: Do not send your kids to a school named “Gaia Democratic School”, especially if the adminstrator is named “Starri Hedges”.

    Roughly one dozen students in Minneapolis, Minnesota, some as young as 11 years old, were taken on a private school-sponsored field trip to an adult novelty store last week, leaving some parents furious.

    The director of the private Gaia Democratic School in Minneapolis, Starri Hedges, took the middle- and high school-aged kids to “Smitten Kitten” as part of a sex education lesson.

    Parent Lynn Floyd called the field trip a “major breach of trust,” adding that parents were not even notified ahead of the trip. Both of her daughters, aged 11 and 13, attended the off-campus trip.

    “You just can’t erase those images,” the mother said.

    However, Hedges called the sex-ed field trip “beautiful” in a statement on Monday, according to the Star Tribune.

    “What I saw happening on our trip, I thought it was beautiful because kids could talk to these sex educators without any shame, without any fear,” she said.

    Students were reportedly shielded from content deemed “pornographic” while at Smitten Kitten, but sex toys and other adult products were reportedly visible to the kids.

    well…..as long as it’s not the government issuing people cards that don’t really need them, and those people turning around and selling them….

    “”Part of the problem, in my opinion, is now they don’t have their food stamps card so they don’t have the money to take care of their families or themselves,” Raulston said. “I think it’s a huge cycle of remaining impoverished.”

    http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/index.ssf/2015/06/fraud_ring_that_turned_ebt_car.html

    • gator69 says:

      When I worked as a repoman in E St louis, the corners where food stamps could be purchased each month were well known, and very busy. Fifty cents on the dollar has been the going rate for decades, and one of my coworkers at the time used to take advantage of this well established arrangement, his family ate steak frequently.

      I also used to witness recipients making multiple small purchases (usually gum or Kool-Aid packets) to get enough change in order to buy cigarettes or liqour. Store clerks just smiled and winked.

      • cdquarles says:

        I remember that, too. I remember Ronald Reagan making a speech about a college student that ran an enterprise involving food stamps back when he was the governor of California.

      • DirkH says:

        Unemployed heavy alcoholics in some German municipalities don’t get cash as social security but food stamps that are accepted in some retail chains. There are cheap mineral waters, the bottles are mandated everywhere in Germany to be returnable(*), and the deposit is higher than the price of the product, so they buy those, empty the bottles into the drains and return with the empty bottles.

        (*) A state religion that is even more fanatically followed than wind energy in Germany is recycling. The bottles are in fact so thin they’re not recycled but we get to have the fun of a quasireligious ritual by carrying them around.

    • cdquarles says:

      Oh, let us not forget that Alabama’s government welfare isn’t particularly generous and Alabama will prosecute benefit frauds aggressively. Imagine what the situation might be like where welfare is much more generous. I have heard of cases where women were playing benefit games in at least two states, using their extended families to do it.
