Some say the US won't give in on Codex. Since our politicians can be bought for next to nothing, don't be so sure.

Big Pharma's
Attempt To Subjugate
Planet Earth...
by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Last week I went to a "Codex" conference in Washington DC. There a large and, so far, loosely knit coalition was formed to exchange information. We began to coordinate the battle to stop the Big Pharma controlled European Union from inflicting "Codex Alimentarious"health standards on the rest of the world.

It will take me some time to absorb all of the information I heard, and read, but for now, let me make something clear - "Codex Alimentarious" is a plot to inflict "the German Model" of health care on all of Planet Earth. The primary targets are Europe (almost completed), Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States.

The plot was hatched in Germany, I believe, and frankly, reeks more of a "world domination" scheme than a movement towards standardizing health care on Planet Earth.

The group formed in Washington will focus on crushing the attempt to harmonize North American laws with "Codex," thereby preventing "the German Model" of health care from becoming the law of the North American continent.

Did I actually say "World Domination?"

Yes, I did. For good reason.

The current version of what's known as "Western Medicine" has its roots, I'm embarrassed to admit, in Nazi Germany's Death Camps. Let's not forget that Mengele, and the boys, did the so-called "basic research," and established the philosophy "Western Medicine" operates by today...

In order to understand "Codex," and make decisions about what to do about it, we need to understand who we are dealing with.

Now, what we have in "Western Medicine," besides the "Codex" issue, is a serious conflict. One that, I think, carefully shows the morality, or lack of, that Big Pharma operates under.

It goes like this - Drug companies on the one hand, with their "researchers" and their money men, want to keep the Mengele-like testing standards in place (I'm not joking) - and use them when they can, and where they can, to the chagrin, and the distaste, of the organized medical community and the worldwide Health Freedom Movement.

For the most part, I believe, Planet Earth's pharmaceutical industry (Big Pharma) is a direct descendant of Nazi Germany's I.G. Farben, a company that was forcibly split up into four parts during the "Nuremberg..." trials. Those four companies, not only still exist, but control the significant part of the world's pharmaceutical drug trade.

Scary? You bet it is.

There are those, in the world, like world renowned Matthias Rath MD, that suggest that Big Pharma is, in fact, the rise of the Fourth Reich. He makes a good case for it.

It may surprise some of us in the Health Freedom Movement to find out that conventional Medical Doctors are not in lock-step with Big Pharma on every issue. In fact, the opposite. The World Medical Association (WMA), for years has taken issue with the drug conglomerates. In the US, the American Medical Association (AMA) takes a similar role.

As an example, there is an interesting AMA article called "Historical Postmortem," which talks about the famous "Helsinki Accord,"reached by world governments originally, in1964. As the AMA says "The Declaration of Helsinki emerged in the aftermath of World War II as one of the guidelines of biomedical ethical conduct."

In the AMA article two important paragraphs lay out the huge depth of controversy between Big Pharma and the rest of the world, including conventional MD physicians. It is terribly important to understand the implications of this controversy. Basically, what the AMA is saying, quoting the WMA, is that Big Pharma sees no problem with continuing the Mengele-like drug testing wherever it can (like third world developing countries). The Helsinki Accord, updated in 1975, 1983, 1989, and 1996 is totally against that. But, as the AMA points out:

In October 2000, at the 52nd World Medical Association General Assembly in Edinburgh, Scotland, the Declaration of Helsinki underwent a controversial revision, unleashing a firestorm of criticism from many researchers, drug companies, and bioethicists who claim that the new recommendations unnecessarily restrict and impede biomedical research on human subjects. Proponents of the changes claim that it protects patients by eliminating unethical research where the populations, such as those in developing nations, are most vulnerable.

At the heart of the controversy is paragraph 29 of the Helsinki Declaration, which states that "the benefits, risks, burdens, and effectiveness of a new method should be tested against those of the best current prophylactic, diagnostic, and therapeutic methods. This does not exclude the use of placebo, or no treatment, in studies where no proven prophylactic, diagnostic or therapeutic method exists." In essence, the paragraph forbids the use of placebos as a control treatment in research studies unless no other proven treatment exists."

The argument described above seems to be primarily about drug testing - but really it's about philosophy - the value of human life. Big Pharma, and its stable of murderous minions, like the "quackbuster" operation, for instance, want double-blind studies inflicted on mankind. In fact, the world of medicine can be divided into only two groups - those that insist on double-blind studies and other like-minded cruelties to man, and those that value life.

What it boils down to is that the Helsinki Declaration shows that, worldwide, and continuously, there is an "us" and "them" view of the value of life. In this particular issue there is an alliance between the Health Freedom Movement, the medical doctor establishment, the world's governments, and most Universities - "us". On the other side, with banks full cash, and a few well paid minions, is Big Pharma - "them."

Keep in mind that Big Pharma is no more afraid of "us," in 2005, than Adolph Hitler was in 1939. They have a similar determination, I think.

Which brings us to the "Codex" issue, itself.

A Canadian friend of mine, author Helke Ferrie, has what I think is a clear, concise explanation of the dangers of "Codex." Read this, and get worried:


In the mid-1990s my mother, then in her 80s, had a stroke. She lived in Germany. When she left hospital, I was ready with a nutritional plan that included high-dose vitamins: C, E, and B - especially Inositol, as well as Co-enzyme Q 10. I went to the pharmacy, whose owner was a family friend for some 25 years, and handed him my list.

He handed me a small packet with a price sticker of DM 200 (then about $200) containing vitamin E capsules manufactured by one of Germany's largest pharmaceutical companies. The source was synthetic, not the "mixed" version from living plant sources I wanted which contains the whole E spectrum. The package contained a total of 10,000 international units of E, the equivalent of a mere 25 capsules of 400 IU each that we are used to buying (I take that many in 3 days). Our bottles contain 90 capsules and cost about $20. If Codex rules in Canada, we will likely pay $800 for a bottle of 90 capsules of low-quality vitamin E - if Health Canada lets us buy that many at once, and if you can find a doctor willing to prescribe it.

He then handed me a tube-shaped metal container with vitamin C effervescent tablets. Each tablet, when dissolved in water, would release 10 mg of vitamin C in a refined sugar solution. Thus, this ridiculously low amount, was to be taken in a toxic medium that would neutralize the vitamin without it doing anything at all. The cost: about $10 for 12 tablets.

Then he asked me, "What's Co-enzyme Q 10? Are you allowed to buy all this in Canada in such dangerous dosages?" When I told him what I take daily, his eyes popped. Then I asked, "Why can't I buy these supplements here?" He replied, "Well, Germany is a Codex country." Oddly, Germany has several government-run hospitals where environmental illness is treated with nutrients only, intravenous vitamin C etc. Life is full of paradoxes and few more follow below.


Dr. Carolyn Dean, a medical doctor and naturopath well known to Toronto readers, is currently the president of "Friends of Freedom International" in which capacity she attended the Codex meeting in Bonn last November. She describes Codex as "the ultimate Big Brother marching backwards into the future."

Effective 1 August, all vitamin and mineral supplements on the so-called "positive list", including everything from Beta Carotene to Zinc, will only be available in the 25 EU countries if they comply with specific rules set out in the 10 June 2002, EU Directive Relating to Food Supplements. All products must show maximum safe levels "as established by science."

Those nutrients found in the mythic "balanced diet" are to be subtracted from the final values, and Article 6 (2) decrees that labels shall "not attribute to food supplements the property of preventing, treating or curing a human disease, or refer to such properties."

So, the Directive's "science" knows nothing of Vitamin C preventing and curing scurvy, Vitamin D preventing and curing rickets and osteoporosis, or vitamin B curing and preventing anemia. It also ignores the mountain of evidence showing our diets are chronically deficient in essential nutrients because of factory-style farming practices.

To "ensure a high level of protection for consumers and facilitate their choice", they even included baking soda and table salt. We must assume they will be unavailable as of 1 August anywhere in Europe - with interesting consequences for the tourist industry in the baked goods paradises Austria, Switzerland and France.

Now, there is also a "negative list" covering essential fatty acids, phytonutrients, all the enzymes and more. Those cannot be marketed at all, until the EU scientific committee in charge has made a final decision. So, forget omega-3 and omega-6 fats, cod liver oil, and much more.

The effect of this directive will be that thousands of products and businesses will be gone this year. In the UK alone some 21 million people will suddenly have no access to any supplement vitamins, minerals, enzymes, fatty acids and more. Since the onus is on businesses to produce the scientific information on safety, they can't produce or sell anything - not even to physicians who have the power to prescribe any toxic drug as well as any essential nutrient. Obviously, there will be ludicrous enforcement issues: Picture basement-concocted vitamins sold in dark alleys alongside crack and Ecstasy.

We're in trouble in the US over the "Codex" problem. Why? Because there is too much conflict among the people who should be working together to solve the problem. We are not ready for big Pharma's assault - and it's coming.

There are those in the Health Freedom Movement that insist that (1) the attack is imminent, (2) others that say that it's not, and (3) those that say that DSHEA laws will protect us completely. (4) Most, like me, are still asking questions.

To those that say that (1) "the attack is imminent" I say "Could be... What form will it take, and what do we do about it?" I'm not hearing the right arguments though. I'm hearing hysteria, not facts. I want a reasonable analysis. Give me that and I'll support it, for I know that the mechanism to achieve the dreaded "harmonization" legislation, making our medical system just like Germany's, is primed, funded, and ready to go - and just waiting.

To those that say that (1) "the attack is NOT imminent" I say "Could be... why do you say that? I want a reasonable analysis. Give me that and I'll support it, for I know that the mechanism to achieve the dreaded "harmonization" legislation, making our medical system just like Germany's, is primed, funded, and ready to go - and just waiting.

To those that say that (1) "the DSHEA laws will protect us" I say "Could be... why do you say that? Still, I want a reasonable analysis. For my last comment is the same - and it is terribly important:

"I know that the mechanism to achieve the dreaded "harmonization" legislation, making our medical system just like Germany's, is primed, funded, and ready to go - and just waiting."

To those that say that are still asking questions, I say "Maybe we'll get a 'Pearl Harbor' before we get everybody together..."

Stay tuned...

Henry Lamb- A Great Freedom Fighter Documents how your Dietary Supplements are Under Attack

Mr. Speaker, I urge my colleagues to read "Your dietary supplements: Under attack again" by Henry Lamb, which I am inserting into the record. Mr. Lamb explains the threat to American consumers of dietary supplements and American sovereignty by the Codex Alimentarius commission, commonly referred to simply as Codex. The United Nations created Codex to establish international standards for foods and medicines. Just last week, representatives of the United States government agreed to a final version of Codex's standards on dietary supplements which, if implemented in the United States, could drastically reduce Americans' ability to obtain the supplements of their choice. Members of the American bureaucracy may be hoping to achieve via international fiat what they cannot achieve through the domestic law-making process--the power to restrict consumers' access to dietary supplements. American bureaucrats may gain this power if the World Trade Organization, which considers Codex "guidelines" the standard by which all other regulations are judged, decides that our failure to "harmonize" our regulations of dietary supplements to meet Codex's recommendations violates international trading standards! This could occur despite the fact that American consumers do not want to be subjected to the restrictive regulations common in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.

This article is typical of Henry Lamb's work. For almost twenty years, beginning at an age when most Americans are contemplating retirement, Mr. Lamb has worked to expose and stop threats to American liberty, sovereignty, and prosperity. Mr. Lamb became involved in the battle for liberty when, as the CEO of a Tennessee construction company, he founded a state association of contractors to work against excessive regulations. In 1988, Henry Lamb founded the Environmental Conservation Organization to defend true environmentalism, which is rooted in the truth that there is no better steward of the environment than a private property owner, from those who used the environment as a cover for their radical statist agendas. Since 1992, Mr. Lamb and ECO have focused on the threat to economic liberty and self-government posed by the radical global environmental agenda.

Henry Lamb works to further the cause of liberty by giving speeches around the country, editing an on-line magazine, making numerous television and radio appearances, and writing a weekly column to inform his fellow Americans of the latest scheme to undermine their freedoms. Mr. Lamb is the model of a citizen-activist, and all who wish to become involved in the battle for freedom can learn from his example. In conclusion, I once again urge my colleagues to read Mr. Lamb's article to learn about the need to protect American consumers from Codex, and I thank Mr. Lamb for his tireless devotion to the cause of freedom.


(By Henry Lamb)

The Codex Alimentarius Commission sounds like one of those shadowy, sinister organizations conjured up by one-world-government nuts to scare people.

Truth: It is!

The Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization created this commission in the early 1960s to set standards for food safety and to ``harmonize'' the laws of member nations. The commission was endorsed by U.N. Resolution 39/248, which says:

``When formulating national policies and plans with regard to food, governments should take into account the need of all consumers for food security and should support and, as far as possible, adopt standards from the ..... Codex Alimentarius. .....''

The Codex Alimentarius Commission consists of delegates from 163 member nations representing 97 percent of the world's population. It meets every two years, either in Rome or Geneva. Between meetings, the commission is governed by an executive committee that directs the activities of its many committees.

Of immediate concern is the ongoing effort to bring dietary supplements in America under the control of standards set by this commission. Dietary supplements generate a $17 billion industry in the United States, which affects more than 150 million consumers, according to Congressional findings (H.R. 2485). Proposed procedures and standards could virtually destroy this market and deprive millions of Americans of the supplements they want to use.

The European Union Directive on Dietary Supplements, which becomes law in August, severely restricts the types and quantities of supplements that may be legally sold. Most forms of vitamins C and E, for example, are not available, or are available only in extremely small doses. If current plans proceed on course, American consumers are in for a shock.

How can this little-known international commission control what consumers buy in the United States?

An even less-known agency, deep within the bowels of the U.S. Department of Agriculture is responsible for U.S. participation in the Codex Commission and designates delegates to each of the commission's committees. Barbara O. Schneeman is the delegate to the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Food for Special Dietary Uses.

The effort to regulate dietary supplements has been under way for more than a decade. In 1994, Congress adopted the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, which kept supplements beyond the reach of the drug police. In the past, Codex recommendations have been non-binding. Now, however, the Codex Alimentarius Commission is teaming up with the World Trade Organization to bring international enforcement to the dietary-supplement battle.

Ironically, it was primarily the U.S. that brought the WTO into existence in 1994, as the successor to GATT, the General Agreement on Tarriffs and Trade. The WTO agreement specifically requires that the member nations--including the U.S.--conform its laws to meet the requirements of WTO decisions. Failure to conform results in stiff financial penalties. The Codex Commission and the European Union want the WTO to enforce Codex standards, which fly directly in the face of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act.

Pascal Lamy of France was just selected as director general of the WTO. Lamy served as a member of the French Socialist Party's steering committee and was chief of staff and representative of the European Commission for President Jacques Delors. Since 1995, he has served as a member of the Central Office of the Mouvement Européen (France) and as a member of the European Commission, responsible for trade.

The Codex Commission will be meeting in Rome July 4-9 to adopt the final rules on dietary supplement use. Dr. Carolyn Dean, president of Friends of Freedom International, will attend this meeting and return to the U.S. just in time to present her report to the Sixth Annual Freedom 21 Conference in Reno, July 14-16.

The Codex Alimentarius Commission's reach is much broader than dietary supplements. Its committees are also working on standards for pesticide residue, labeling of all kinds of foods, food additives and nutrients, veterinary medicine and drugs, as well as standards and methods for analysis. The function of this organization is to establish standards for all food worldwide and to enforce those standards through the power of the World Trade Organization.

Few people know that there is such a thing as the Codex Alimentarius Commission. It was created to promote food safety in international trade. It is on the brink of becoming an Orwellian bureaucracy--far worse than the worst fantasies of the one-world conspiracy theories.

The Codex Alimentarius Commission is neither fantasy nor theory; it is real.



I don't even agree with what QA said, but they are QA. Question them, and your out the door.
Now Ive heard that before.:) nm
That's not what I have heard...
What I heard...
And is strictly speculation... Phillips will dump MQ and Spheris will snap them up... and we all know what happens to those who work for Spheris! Can you say hello Bangalore?
I heard it too AND
Not heard anything about it
I am sure you have heard this before..
there is no such thing as a dumb question.

you are asking questions other people wish they had the answers to but are afraid to ask.

and you are correct in your assumptions, however, your on-call status might have parameters; for instance, between the hours of midnight and 8 a.m.
Anyone heard of LTS, INC?
I was thinking of applying at LTS, INC  but I was not sure if they were reputable! If anyone has ever heard anything about them, let me know!  Thanks!! 
What I heard
I heard September 11th is the day we are all supposed to boycott.
This is what I heard is better to do
Of course, we all need gas, and as another poster noted, just not buying gas on a certain day will not work.

What I heard is, buy your gas from a small-time operation, as opposed to Exxon, BP, etc. This will cause them to lower their prices, and the smaller companies with follow by lowering theirs.

Also, noticed yesterday that gas has come down by about .50 in my area. I wasn't surprised, because when I have to go out, there's much, much less traffic...I would estimate by 75% of normal, so folks are boycotting in a way already... cutting down on their trips, combining trips, etc., because they just draw the line at the point prices had risen.
The last I heard
Huntsville Hospital transcription was a pill to work for. I worked with a lady one time who had quit the hospital because after they had agreed to give her vacation at a certain time months in advance they told her she couldn't take it and she had to cancel her vacation plans. They may have improved the way they do business by now but not sure. I would do more research if at all possible.
Heard something
Instead of the bonus being in the 10/1 paycheck, it is supposed to be in the 11/15 paycheck. Of course part of all of it was that you have to be with the company in order to receive it...you leave, you lose. Only half of the employees qualified, which is curious. I know a lot of people left after they restructured they pay plan and the hew hires get their $1000 bonus so I'm confused as to how it saves them money. I guess they are thinking they are about to have another exodus when the bonuses are given out and the new people won't be there long enough to qualify for the next quarterly bonus.

d~~~~> scratching my head
Anybody heard of
Any information would be helpful.  TIA
Yea, but what is said and what is heard are different. NM
I heard that!
Just a few that get to me...along with the phrase "24/7, 365"... Not sure why that one gets on my nerves, but it does!  "Team player" is another one! and the best yet...to me, my boss uses the phrase that she is going to "tickle" something...meaning mark it for future reference (I think).. not really sure about that phrase either!
Must not have done much. I never heard of it and I'm okay this a.m.
I usually get socked by everything down the pike with my AVG.
What is it about? Never heard of it.


I have never heard of them, but you should
try posting this on the companies board and maybe someone there can help. Also, it might not be soon enough for you. Try googling the words "opinions on Entente Health Care" and that might help. Good luck!
Never heard of them. Sorry. nm
Yes I have heard of this, but the
pay was very low.
I have heard that it is about 85%

85% for no spaces compared to spaces being counted. Not sure if that is a correct number. I know there is a chart somewhere that breaks it all down. 


Never heard of them
That is odd.  I live in Arkansas and have never heard of them.  Are they new?  Let us know if you do hear anything about them.
I have not heard of this before? Can you tell us more.
and in fact wondered to myself about specializing in maintaining flower gardens for the sick and elderly who haven't the strength to do it but want it just the same.
I have never heard of these, but this is exactly what I need. I'm going to ask about them. Have
sorry I mean heard
I heard that also
I believe it has something to do with benefiting farmers and their crops, but I could be wrong. I think that was the reason it got started in the first place.
I heard about them

I heard about this company, giving all  their work to India and not paying any one on time. Please be aware of this guys!

I have never heard of that but perhaps...sm

Hibiclens would be better than Betadine, I would think....plus Betadine stains and Hibiclens does not.  *S*

Fresh blade to shave that area though - I know this because I no longer have the bumps since using the fresh blades. 

Never heard of that.
Wow - now I have heard it all lol
What I have heard is this ..

The test is comprehensive and the difference is that there is less emphasis placed on the transcribing of reports in the test and more emphasis placed on your body of knowledge.  It requires that you have at least two years of acute care experience to take it. We pay a .01 per line higher rate for CMTs at my company and that works out to be 12.00 a day extra for your production requirement or $60 per week or $240 per month.  I find that our MTs think it is well worth it.  Additionally, with the average age of MTs being 58, I'd say that your grandfathered CMTs are dwindling in the workplace as they retire and those left are tested CMTs but a different formatting situation.

never heard of it, but
I googled it and it sounds very yummy. Sounds sort of complicated though.
I had not heard of these before, but
I Googled and got this as the first hit. Apparently, it does not detect cigarette smoke, but rather detects the act of lighting the cigarette, and is made for such purposes as catching the culprit who is smoking in a school bathroom or other such public facility. Check it out.

Has anyone ever heard of this?

My cousin went in for a cholecystectomy.  She was VERY ill for days afterwards.  She went in to the ER and had a CT.  They said her liver was perforated during the chole.  Now, she is literally on her death bed with a perforated liver and blood clots in the mesenteric artery and another major artery. She is being transferred to a transplant hospital for evaluation of possible liver transplant.

All of this happened because of mistake during a cholecystectomy.  She is 34 years old and may not make it.  The original doc avoided her like the plague and they had to push for a new doc.  No new docs would take her because of the lawsuit potential that already exists.  Her family finally got a doc to give verbal orders to have her transferred to the transplant hospital where hopefully she will get better care. 

Unbelievable.  I wonder if the doc knew what he did during surgery and tried covering it up, which ultimately may kill her.  Docs are so afraid of lawsuits that the patient's care is going down the tubes.

Never heard of it, but I am

losing about 2 pounds a week eating a sensible diet including carbs.  I get so frustrated when people mention diets and it's all no carbohydrates, or very low carbohydrates.  I didn't get fat because I ate too much white rice or potatoes, LOL, I got fat because I ate too much of EVERYTHING, along with sitting on my bum all day long.  And a diet that restricts me from eating watermelon because of the glycemic index? I can just imaging going to a friend's house and her asking me if I want some watermelon.  No thanks, I'm on a diet, LOL. 




I heard this as well...
I had a national tell me they are being required to get licensed in the states they want to hire people in and can only offer benefits if you live in those states.  They can still hire ICs, but they have to take out federal tax and social security. I believe the IRS cracked down on everybody.  Another one told me that all employers have to allow ICs to be the "by the book" ICs, they can take off when they want and don't have to work schedules.
I have heard that before
I have been hearing that for years and years and all I see are more hospitals coming back to the US market. One very large well-known hospital here in this city has tried it twice and no more. I also am quite sure the hospital that had medical records "held hostage" will not be using offshore contractors again.

If they have 2 master's degrees and they are worth anything, why are they working as an MT? I would also like to point out that saying that MTs in the US only have a high school education is completely unfounded. I dont know any hospital that would ever hire someone with that background, without 30 years experience, even if they could pass the test.

No matter what, you cannot translate from English, to another language, and back again without discrepancies. I can spot it on any application, test, or even a post on this website 99% of the time, as I am sure you all can too....

Personally, I wouldn’t compare my skills with a cashier either, as that is mostly done by retirees and kids still in school. I do believe cashiers have a union in California, or at least they did when I lived there.

If dues from AAMT were spent on promoting US MTs and safety of patient records rather than where they are going now, we wouldn’t have to discuss it amongst ourselves...

Would you want your records and personal information transferred to India, Pakistan, etc., and back? I dont... If people KNEW what was really in their medical records, what was dictated, and that they were going overseas as a general rule, do you think they would agree to it? The whole point is that people do not know we exist, nor do they know what we do and the importance of our work.

I have heard of it, but
Zanaflex is used usually when there are cervical symptoms as well. I have transcribed for neurology a lot. Prophylaxis is usually Topamax or magnesium. I couldn't deal with the effects of Topamax, but I take magnesium and an aspirin daily and rarely get a migraine now. :)
Why not? Most never heard of the BOS...
and by using traditional grammar rules, our book will be more in line with the AMA Style Guide.  Now that they DO recognize! 
from what I have heard--sm
it is like a glorified version of XP, but mostly meant for business (large business) and gamers. Someone advised to wait for service pak one before getting it. I, for one, am not sure that I want it, yet.
Ever heard of...
Ever heard of anyone being trained from home or working part time from home as an engineer?? Get real. Everywhere that conducts training for MT touts that you can work from home, part time, set your own hours, etc. No where claims you can do that as an engineer so you're comparing apples to grapefruits in your post.
Have you heard of ...
I have been offered a job with Zylomed - Heard of Them?  
Never heard of it
but had someone email me that they were going to be using it with Keystrokes. She had asked for another account, but the company was not very obliging - but that's Keystrokes for ya.
Have you heard the saying?
Money talks and bull$$$$ walks?
I have never heard... sm
SO much hatefulness on one board in my life.  If you don't have a nice thing to say, don't say it.  The post about the world being a better place without someone is cruel and does nothing but hurt.  This board used to be helpful and friendly.  No longer.  And, by the way, were are the moderators that are supposed to be watching this??? Your input would be helpful now and then.  I suspect this post will get deleted way before anybody has a chance to read it.  Remember the do under others phrase??? More of you need ot use it.
I have heard of that before,
and I am thinking perhaps caps as stands for something but yes that is a word.

I had already heard about this before seeing
part of the show. With the cost of surrogates here and with some wanting children, you could see why these people would travel there. I cannot image spending thousands like they are doing for children but to each his own. India also going into the retirement home business for Americans also, lots less there. They have their thumb in every pie they can. I think I will retire to Mexico though as the cost probably about comparable.
Would you rather he use the PC (and heard on CNN) - sm
phrase "N-word"? It means the same, but somehow is more accepted. As nana said, it is a word, be it good, bad, or ugly. I do note though that when blacks use it to blacks, it is not offensive. It is also not considered terribly offensive when blacks call whites honky or cracker. Racial relations will only get better when people decide to hear what is said instead of concentrating on the words used to say it. Also, just for the record, we don't know what race Nana is.
