Breast Cancer Awareness Month–Just Say NO To The Susan G. Komen Foundation

For a number of years I have refused to contribute to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Often at the check out of the local supermarket, the cashier will ask if I would like to donate a dollar for “The Cure” and I emphatically and proudly announce “I certainly will not.”

Why, you may ask? For one simple reason, this foundation that has raised an untold amount of money since it was founded in 1982 donates millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, through some of its affiliates.

This excellent article, The Dark Side Of ‘Thinking Pink’ goes into depth on the subject of risk factors associated with breast cancer, including the questionable source that the SGK Foundation claims supports their position.

Here are some key points raised in this article:

Women today are delaying childbirth as never before, and having fewer children. Younger women are using OC(oral contraceptives) for longer periods of time. And well over a fifth of all pregnancies in America end in abortion — hardly the rarity its “safe, legal and rare” advocates say it should be. If you suspect that these reproductive risk factors might have something to do with the 40 percent increase in the incidence of breast cancer over the last 30 years, you have spotted the elephant in the room.
——————-
Induced abortion is also a major risk factor. A recent (2007) multi-country study found that having had an abortion was the greatest predictor of subsequent breast cancer. Going back decades, study after study (with only a few exceptions) has demonstrated the connection; a methodologically sound review of the available evidence determined that it raises the risk of breast cancer by approximately 30 percent. (See this exhaustive summary.) Electing to have an abortion before one’s first full-term pregnancy is even riskier.
——————-
Most pink campaigns avoid any hint of these factors like the plague; the Susan G. Komen Foundation, a prominent advocacy and fundraising group, vehemently and unequivocally denies the link between abortion and breast cancer, citing Beral’s shady “study”. Komen is evidently content to ignore mounting epidemiological evidence along with current knowledge of breast physiology which makes such a link all the more creditable.

Curiously, Komen also funnels millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood — already a recipient of considerable governmental largesse. By doling out tons of contraceptives and providing for more abortion than any other outfit in the country, Planned Parenthood virtually ensures that the breast cancer epidemic will persist, not shrink.

You don’t have to be a cynic to find this cozy relationship a bit fishy.

To summarize, the SGK Foundation provides millions of dollars through donations (by an American public that honestly believes they are actually doing what little they can to help fight breast cancer), to an unethical organization that provides services to young women that are in the high risk category for the very disease the public wants to eliminate.

It appears the SGK Foundation is insuring their existence by funding an agency that will provide them with an endless stream of cancer victims, requiring even more donations from an uninformed, but well intentioned public.

There is no doubt what a deadly and devastating disease breast cancer is to women and their families. As a father to young women and grand father of young girls, no one would like to see this horrible disease eliminated or ameliorated more than I, but there is no way on Earth I will ever give a single penny to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, unless or until they sever any and all connections with Planned Parenthood. The American Cancer Society is an excellent choice for any who wish to donate to a reputable organization involved in this fight.

#OWS: Jackson, MS

The Occupation Crowd made it to Smith Park in Jackson, yesterday. Nuke’s contributor, Jseedubya was there to provide us with some idea of what happened.

I went to the Occupy Jackson Rally this morning. I wanted to see for myself what this “movement” was all about. I understand the basis of their complaints, corporate greed, and the fact that politicians favor Wall Street over Main Street. In fact, I can relate to their anger as I too am having a tough time in this degraded economy. I agree that there needs to be some significant changes to the status quo, and I was curious to hear their ideas, if any, that the 99 percenters were promoting.

Some of what I saw was just plain bizarre. They claim to have no “leader”, but one fellow wearing a “wifebeater” t-shirt, and oversize belt buckle with a pot leaf emblem on it, did seem to be the head honcho. He would make a statement, and the crowd would repeat his words, almost like the were chanting. Then they would throw their hands up in the air like an old-time tent revival, and wiggle their fingers in agreement with the chanting.

There were signs in the park that said “Park Closes at 7:00 PM.” I didn’t stick around to see if the hippies would test the patience of the Police or not. JPD is not known for suffering fools gladly.

Oh Noooooes…Huntsman to boycott Nevada

by Matt Viser, Globe Staff

WASHINGTON – Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman, who has increasingly staked his candidacy on New Hampshire, said this morning that he will boycott the Nevada caucuses unless the state moves its voting date out of the Granite State’s way.

He also challenged Mitt Romney to do the same.

Nevada currently has set its date for Jan. 14, but New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner demanded yesterday that Nevada move its voting back to Jan. 17. It is all part of a quadrennial ritual where states jockey for voting positions.

Now that would just be tragic. By the way, who is Jon Huntsman?

A Star Walks Onto The Stage

It’s not very often that a non-scholarship football player successfully walks-on at a major university football program and gets to play.

It’s even more seldom that a walk-on becomes a starter for a national champion contending team.

If you haven’t heard of him his name is Dominique Whaley and he is indeed a walk-on running back for the OU Sooners. In just five games he has shown just why the coaches, that regularly recruit some of the finest athletes in the country, have named him their starting running back. DW just has that “it” factor, he is fast, powerful, doesn’t fumble the ball and is a great receiver.

And now he is attracting much more attention after his breath taking touchdown run in the Red River Shoot-Out on national television, even comparisons to the Sooner legend Adrian Peterson. The Sports Illustrated cover is a little disconcerting, having seen what a curse that usually is.

In any event, the Junior RB who is essentially a freshman in terms of experience has brought much joy and a wow factor to Sooner fans, as evidenced in the following video. His explosion of power when he turns the corner and reveals his 4.38 speed is a video I have yet to grow tired of, as well as the last video in his very first game.

I wish this young man every success.

Congrats Mrs. Nuke

Just got a text message (yeah you heard that right, Ol’ Nuke texts) that Mrs. Nuke was awarded the Pride Award from her employer.

She works with Veterans at the local VA Clinic, and absolutely loves it.

Congrats babe! I’m mighty proud of you.

A campaign event disguised as a news conference

I made it through the President’s news conference this morning.

AP photo

That was one hour and ten minutes of my life that was wasted. Not to say that I’ve never wasted an hour and ten minutes before, or even that I’ve never spent an hour and ten minutes being wasted. Just that, this “news conference” wasn’t a news conference, at all. It was a campaign event.

And, as the lapdog media quickly realized their role in the show, their questions became more and more deliberate. Their hero didn’t disappoint. He smashed their softball queries far into the left field cheap seats, and time after time, played the blame game to deflect criticism of his performance with the economy.

As much as the President tries to blame others for his incompetence, the fact that his policies have not done what he said they would do undermines his credibility with the blame game. At least the President didn’t say “pass this bill, now,” so we can be grateful for that anyway.

Steve Jobs, RIP

Steve Jobs has died.

Rest In Peace.

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” Stanford University commencement address, June 2005
