Thursday Link-Fest

■ First up, our friend Bob Graboyes of the NFIB explains how the ObamneyCare© tax-credit is nutty:

"A bowl of cashews is a tempting snack, but it’s relatively unimportant to someone riding five million cubic feet of hydrogen toward an electrical source."

Food for thought.

■ And speaking of food, our next item concerns the MVNHS©'s self-destructive dietary guidelines:

"My diet was an extreme version of the NHS Eat Well regime, which recommends lots of starchy foods and smaller quantities of saturated fats, cholesterol, sugar and red meat ... and yet my health had never been worse."

Read on to learn what the "experts" conveniently forgot to tell us about their "healthful" recommendations.

■ Is there a shortage of vital cancer-fighting med's here in the States? It would seem so:

"Shortages of a lifesaving chemotherapy drug for children and a cancer drug for adults have federal regulators on edge and Arizona hospitals and doctors scrambling to secure supplies and alter treatment plans ... Patients and their families are puzzled over why drugs that have been available for decades are suddenly scarce when they need them most."

Hmmm, one wonders why.

■ John Goodman wonders if the actual practice of medicine under ObamneyCare© will be worse than death panels:

"[D]octors would be given immunity from malpractice lawsuits, but only if they practice medicine according to government guidelines."

ObamaDeathWaivers©, anyone?

■ And finally, some (potentially) good news:

"Stanford researchers may have discovered a drug for a rare and often untreatable disease that leaves children with massive, and sometimes deadly, growths on their faces, necks and other parts of their bodies."

And what is that, you may ask?

Well, according to Dr Bob Dole,"[t]he drug is Viagra."

Early research shows that the ED med apparently causes these growths to shrink (counterintuitive, that).
