Funny really, because think about this: it would be like recalling preparation h for causing itchy butts!
A hand sanitizer meant to protect people from germs is being recalled because of bacterial contamination, Health Canada said Thursday.
Kimberly-Clark is recalling its Kleenex-brand Luxury Foam Hand Sanitizer after company testing detected bacteria that may pose serious health risks to people with weakened immune systems, especially those with the lung disorder cystic fibrosis.
The bacteria identified in the tested samples are from the Burkholderia cepacia group. These bacteria pose little risk to healthy people, but for those with immune systems weakened by other illnesses, the microbes can cause serious problems, including pneumonia and blood infection.
The affected hand sanitizer comes in one-litre and 1.2-litre containers, and is used in large-volume dispensers, such as those found in public areas and workspaces.
How do you feel about this? Should Supreme Court Justices have a term limit?
CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto.
A new CBS News/New York Times poll finds that six in ten Americans oppose lifetime appointments for Supreme Court justices, with respondents agreeing with the idea that such appointments give the justices too much power.
Respondents were asked this question: “Which opinion comes closer to your own appointing Supreme Court Justices for life is a good thing because it helps keep them independent from political pressures, or appointing Supreme Court Justices for life is a bad thing because it gives them too much power?”
Just 33 percent said they believed lifetime appointments are a good thing because it keeps justices independent. Sixty percent said they disapprove of lifetime appointments.
Three in four said they believe the current Supreme Court justices sometimes let their own personal or political views influence their decisions. The belief crossed party lines, with roughly the same percentage of Republicans, Democrats and independents expressing that view. Only 13 percent said the justices decide cases based solely on legal analysis.
Asked specifically how the justices will decide the challenge to the federal health care law passed in 2010, 55 percent said they will be influenced by their personal or political views. Thirty-two percent said the decision will be grounded strictly in legal analysis.
Overall, more Americans approve than disapprove of how the Supreme Court is handling its job, though the court’s overall job approval rating is less than 50 percent. Forty-four percent – including 51 percent of Democrats – approve of the way the justices are performing. Thirty-six percent disapprove. Another one in five doesn’t have an opinion.
Far worse are perceptions of Congress. Just 15 percent of Americans said in the CBS News/New York Times poll that they approve of the job Congress is doing, while 77 percent disapprove. Those numbers are actually slightly improved from February, when only 10 percent approved of the job Congress is doing.
Just another obama regime member misleading the public on fast and furious.
On CNN’s State of the Union this morning, White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew was asked why President Obama asserted executive privilege for Attorney General Eric Holder over Fast and Furious documents when he railed against the use of executive privilege in 2007. Remember, President Obama campaigned on his administration being the “most transparent administration in history.”
White House Chief Of Staff Jacob Lew: “Candy, let’s go back to the facts. The facts are that this was a bad plan, this Fast and Furious. It’s something that started in the Bush Administration and the Attorney General did not know about it. It came out of the region and when the Attorney General learned about it, what he did was stop it. He said it was wrong and he said we’re not going to do it. There was a period of time when the Attorney General didn’t know about it because it was happening at a regional office, that a statement was made to Congress that had to be corrected. The Attorney General corrected it. Every document related to the decisions up to that point has been shared. This is not a question of finding facts, this is a question that Congress at the beginning of this investigation said they were going to use their investigatory powers in a political way, and this is political not a substantive question.”
In their never-ending efforts to buy votes with other people’s money (see the first cartoon in this post), politicians have been expanding the welfare state and creating more dependency.
It also has very worrisome long-run effects on the stability and viability of a culture, as shown by these two cartoons.
A stark example can be seen in the food stamp program, which has morphed from a handout for the genuinely poor to a widespread entitlement for everyone from college students to the Octo-mom, and for products ranging from luxury coffee to lobster.
Here are some of the unpleasant details about the fiscal costs from Veronique de Rugy’s column in the Washington Examiner.

RNC Chief Reince Priebus says that it doesn’t matter that he can’t stand the decision by the Supreme Court. Obama’s lawyers argued that the mandate penalty was a tax and the Supreme Court agreed and ruled that it was a tax and therefore the RNC is going to pound away on the fact that Obama broke his promise to not raise taxes on the middle class. He says that the Democrats may have won the battle be he believes Republicans are going to win the war. Awesome!

Have you noticed this? That from obama on down, all the democrats are calling the tax for not getting insurance under obamacare a penalty? It is not a tax they say! Despite the Supreme Court saying it is a tax! All the liberals are saying that republicans got it wrong, it is a penalty and not a tax. These people are delusional to say it is a penalty.
Thessaloniki’s subway project is years behind schedule, thanks in part to a number of archeological discoveries that have been made during the course of excavations. Most recently, a large section of a nearly 2,000-year-old road built by the Romans was uncovered. Marks left by children’s board games as well as cart wheels can still be seen on some of the marble slabs that made up the city’s main thoroughfare at the time. Beneath that road, archeologists found an even older road laid by the Greeks centuries earlier. Developers now plan to raise the ancient road and place it on display when the transit system opens.
Do you remember this? I certainly do!
Sony’s first truly portable cassette player, the Walkman, was originally developed for a company chairman who wanted to be able to listen to music on long plane rides. He was impressed, and less than a year later, the revolutionary device hit the market. Sales soon exploded, cementing the Walkman’s place in pop culture. It remained popular throughout the 1990s, before CDs and mp3s supplanted cassettes. Who invented the portable personal stereo cassette player years before the Walkman’s debut?
Imagine you’re sitting at home, comfortable on the couch, watching the Food Network, when all of a sudden a heavily armed SWAT team breaks down your door and storms into your living room.
That’s what happened to 18-year-old Stephanie Milan, who was watching TV in her family’s Evansville, Ind., home last Thursday (June 22), when a team of police officers broke down her storm door — the front door was already open — and tossed a flash-bang stun grenade into the room.
“The front door was open,” Ira Milan, Stephanie’s grandfather and the property owner, told theEvansvile Courier & Press. “To bring a whole SWAT team seems a little excessive.”
Turns out, however, that the SWAT team had the address wrong.
The Courier & Press said the police had been investigating “anonymous and specific online threats made against police and their families on the website topix.com,” and had obtained a search warrant for the Milan house. An Evansville police officer said one of the threats that came from the Milan household mentioned explosives and said, “Evansville is going to feel the pain.”
Whoever made these threats, the Courier & Press said, likely remotely routed them through the Milan’s open Wi-Fi connection, which means it could have been used from an outside location. It’s possible the Milans, or specifically Stephanie, were targets of “swatting,” a particularly nasty prank by which the perpetrator — often through hoax 911 calls — tricks a SWAT team into raiding a house of his choosing.
Last July, Parry Aftab, a prominent Internet security advocate, became the victim of such an attack. Police swarmed her northern New Jersey home after pranksters placed a 911 call through a computer that cloned her number and said a man had killed four people and was holding another hostage in her house.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Sunday said the Supreme Court ruling upholding the president’s healthcare reforms cleared the way for the Senate to vote on repealing the law.
McConnell said the Supreme Court’s decision to hold the individual mandate as constitutional under Congress’s taxing powers meant senators needed only 51 votes to repeal that particular provision.
