Social Issues and Civil Unrest
As many of you know, I am and have been a Law Enforcement officer for years. Just last night I received complaint of a new scam and thought I would advise you all so that you can pass it around. You will get a phone call stating that you have missed your date to sit on jury duty. They then tell you that you have two choices; either report to the Sheriff's office and be arrested and bonded out, or "wire" them $980.00usd and they will not pursue the arrest anymore. They are targeting elder people and scaring the crap out of them in order for this to work. They use "throw away" phones and constantly switch accounts so tracking them is virtually impossible. PLEASE tell all your friends and family about this.. Semper

Deconstructing Disinformation
I came across this article discussing Dr. Richard Horton, Editor in Chief of "The Lancet" (which is apparently the "World's Best Known Medical Journal"), and his statement about medical literature being, in many cases, fraudulent yet accepted as pure fact. This is a bold statement and one I'd like to open up a discussion about here on ATS. " Dr. Horton recently published a statement declaring that a lot of published research is in fact unreliable at best, if not completely false. “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses,...

Fragile Earth
I'm at the family get together for memorial day weekend. My dad showed me an email he received and it amazed me on how much sense it made. I thought I would share it with ATS. It seems it proves that there is always two sides to any discussion. I will post the article in it's entirety it is rather long so the opening...

This is the part that makes no sense as you debate skeptics on this subject. It's one thing to be skeptical and you should be because all cases aren't equal. Some cases are are very weak while some cases are very strong. Some skeptics seem to be...

General Conspiracies
I remain convinced of the strong possibility that NPD officer SS shot the suspect non-fatally at 9:46:54, hitting him in the right clavicle (audio expert Paul Ginsberg's $6000 disappearing gunshot). This shot, and its echo down those long halls), is audible in NPD...
