Global Warming Accelerates While US Backpedals
19 Oct 2009
Two recent studies have shocked the world in regard to global warming. A phenomenon that was to happen “possibly in our lifetime” has evolved into a threat capable of transforming the world in ten years time.

A recent, extensive study of the northern polar ice caps released by climate expert Professor Peter Wadham, concluded that the Arctic Ocean would be “mostly” ice free in 10 years during the summer months.

This study is a stunning compliment to research done by NASA at the South Pole, which noted that ice sheets have been losing 30 feet a year in thickness since 2003. The research concluded that the rate of melting is accelerating, creating a “runaway effect.”

Bush Nazi Swine Flu; 1918 Spanish Flu Deja Vu ***
19 Oct 2009
Nobody Knows Except for the Guy with Black Toes! GHW Bush revealed that the Anthrax that is being used to terrorize the populace with the current flu epidemic is being produced at hundreds of bogus government Anthrax production sites nationwide by the Bush Nazi Devil worshippers who believe that Moses was a bioterrorist. This flu epidemic is a pathetic attempt to duplicate the Spanish Flu of 1918. Once you get them to admit that the flu is not a virus, just say, "This is not a bullet!"

Is That Really The Best You Can Do?
18 Oct 2009
Lately television commercials put out by the health insurance industry, their lobbyists and supporters seem geared towards winning the hearts and minds of everyday Americans. They are aimed at those who would typically be their policy holders and legislators. They seek to convince us reforms meant to hold them accountable for their actions, to force them to pay for approved treatments and finding options that work for both small business owners and individual policy holders are bad for America. They want us to believe the status quo as it is now is a better way to go.

Transgender Awareness Week Announced for November 15 – 20th
18 Oct 2009
mtpc_logoplus110.pngThe Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) is proud to announce that November 15 though November 20, 2009 will be Transgender Awareness Week in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This week will be dedicated to educating the public about their transgender neighbors, co-workers, friends, and community members and the pressing issues that are currently facing the transgender people in Massachusetts. Events and educational opportunities are being planned around the state by MTPC and a variety of organizations and community groups.
Massachusetts is one of the few remaining New England states that does not have explicit protections for transgender people codified in its laws. This lack of state level protections negatively impacts transgender people and other individuals whose gender identity and/or expression may not conform to social expectations about gender. Specifically, this places those individuals in increased risk of bias in employment, housing, public accommodations, education, and credit. Some national studies have shown that up to 56% of transgender people have been fired because of their gender identity or expression.
