Are You Brushing Your Teeth With Laundry Detergent? (Spoiler: Probably)

Shampoo, body wash, dishwashing liquid, laundry soap, and hand soap are all basically the same thing, at their core: Detergent, which is made from water and some combination of sodium laureth sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS, for the sake of brevity). It can be either plant or petroleum-based. And they’re not just putting it […]

The Obama Legacy – Doublewood

When I read this headline “A Catastrophe Like No Other” in the WSJ, I thought it was about American foreign policy. I don’t live in the US to be able to appreciate what the Obama years of political showbiz will do to our future domestically.  I am thankful, however, that Obamacare does not (yet) apply to […]

NY Times: Big Chem, Big Harm? – A Commentary by “Rothschild”

Fear in America, Poison in Dallas

The US Government and their Eager Beavers in the corporate news media are always salivating over one disease or another, because it’s so helpful to them to be constantly promoting one. It might be H1N1, SARS, Swine Flu, or in the case of this thinly-veiled propaganda piece from CBS News, West Nile virus. Disease is […]

Healthcare reform debate

As a follow-up/rebuttal to the CNBC healthcare reform debate from last night, I figured I would inject some free-market sense into the conversation, as the entire debate (as far as I can tell) was completely one-sided. The point of this post is not to force my opinion on you, but to at least provide an […]
