Is cancer avoidable?

It seems that many things can cause cancer.

And browsing health food stores online, you can get the impression that most vegetables and supplements fight cancer.

Can cancer be avoided by eating the right foods?
This is the impression I’ve been getting lately, whereas years ago I’d always assumed that cancer was random.

If this is the case and its common knowledge, shouldn’t that message be spread a bit better than it currently is?

CEO’s who have threatened their employees to vote for Romney

Steve Wynn, Wynn Casino

Mike White, Rite-Hite

Jack DeWitt, Request Foods

Arthur Allen, CEO Of ASG

Richard Lacks, Lacks Enterprises

Why are these fascist assholes trying to pressure their employees?
They only have one vote, for one.
But lying POS mitt romney himself made a plea to his billionaire friends to try and influence the votes of their employees.

That conservatives see no problem with this identifies them as anti-american.

Too much right-wing stupidity in your search results?

Propagandist conservatives have made an effort to flood google with their bullshit.

You might search for something and be flooded by results from glenn beck (madman) and free republic (racist anti-american idiots).

To fix this, click the gear symbol on the right side of google’s search.
Then click “search settings”, and click the link stating “block unwanted sites”, where you can improve your search experience by blocking all the anti-american propaganda the right wing puts out.

Some say, but you won’t get their perspective.
F you – there is nothing valid about a perspective that is based on LIES.

The many ways republican-supporters are stupid and anti-american

Republican supporters believe they are patriots.
This is false.
EVERYTHING these idiots believe is a lie.

They pretend they care about the deficit – which REPUBLICANS created, and maintain and promise to make worse.

They pretend to care about the debt, also nearly entirely a REPUBLICAN creation.

They pretend to care about jobs, but support the party blocking EVERY JOBS BILL since Feb 2009.

Fox has taught these tools that (D)’s had a supermajority able to pass whatever they wanted, but that is a lie.
An easily disproven lie as well.
60 votes is what it takes to beat the constant (R) filibuster.
(D)’s never had that.

REPUBLICANS are NOT good for the economy in ANY way.
They say that they are, and fox might give the impression they are – but its the farthest thing from the truth.

There is not a single impression you get from fox “news” that is accurate.
Right wing media has been bending conservatives over a barrel and treating them rough, for YEARS.

Is it not our duty as liberals to protect our SIMPLE-MINDED american brethren from voting against themselves, as a result of easily disproven lies?

I know they are lazy and stupid.
but they don’t mean to be anti-american.

Republicans cheating

Instead of simply doing their jobs, and doing them well – this is how (R)’s get votes in 2012

– lies, constant lies reinforced by GOPTV (fox fake news) and parroted by mitt the twit.
– voter suppression
– misinformation
– flip flopping
– buying voting machines

There is not a single valid reason to vote (R).
They have not been correct about a single issue.

Romney’s tax bullshit

Any conservative dipshits want to defend ANY of romney’s tax plans?
They are all asinine.

9/6/11: Romney’s First Tax Cut For The Rich
Promising not to cut taxes for the rich, Romney proposes a plan that would extend the Bush tax cuts, eliminate capital gains taxes for those making under $200,000, cut corporate taxes, and eliminate the estate tax. In all, it adds up to a $6.6-trillion cut that would have little benefit for the middle class, which doesn’t enjoy the same benefits from a capital gains cut as the rich.

2/22/12: Romney Introduces A New Tax Plan
Under pressure from conservatives, Romney scraps his first plan in favor of the current plan, which maintains the Bush tax cuts, provides another 20-percent rate reduction for all Americans, cuts corporate taxes, and eliminates the estate tax. Romney says he will eliminate unspecified tax loopholes and deductions to pay for the plan. Romney promises he won’t cut taxes for the rich. He also promises his plan won’t add to the deficit.

2/22/12: Romney Promises To Cut Taxes For The 1 Percent
After criticism from fellow Republican presidential candidates, Romney asserts at a primary debate that “we’re going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent, including the top 1 percent,” contradicting his previous assertion that he wouldn’t cut taxes for the rich.

3/1/12: Tax Plan Will Lead To $4.8 Trillion In Lost Revenue
The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center scores Romney’s plan, finding that it would cost $4.8 trillion over the next 10 years. TPC does not take into account Romney’s plan to pay for his tax cuts, since he hasn’t yet proposed a specific way to do so. TPC found that Romney’s plan would give the average millionaire nearly $260,000 in tax cuts.

4/15/12: Romney Names Two Deductions He’d Eliminate
Romney tells donors that he would “probably eliminate” the mortgage interest deduction on second homes for high-income Americans, as well as deductions for state and local income taxes. That still falls far short of paying for his plan.

4/16/12: Advisers Walk Those Comments Back
Romney aides walk back those comments, saying Romney’s fundraiser remarks were only in response to questions from donors and shouldn’t be taken as policy proposals.

6/4/12: A $5 Million Tax Cut For Himself
Citizens for Tax Justice issues a study finding Romney would save $5 million under his own tax plan.

7/17/12: Media Begins To Press Romney To Name Deductions, He Refuses
Romney refuses to name deductions he would eliminate when pressed by CBS host Bob Schieffer. He also claims his tax plan won’t reduce the “share of the tax burden” paid by the wealthiest Americans, a canard meant to hide his massive tax cut for the wealthy.

8/1/12: Romney’s Plan Would Raise Taxes On The Middle Class
The Tax Policy Center returns to the Romney tax plan, attempting to find out how he would pay for it. TPC finds that there is not enough revenue to be gained through the elimination of deductions for high-income earners to pay for the tax cut, so to avoid adding to the deficit, Romney would have to raise taxes on the middle class by as much as $2,000.

8/9/12: Conservatives Start Coming To His Defense
Matt Jensen of the American Enterprise Institute responds to the TPC study by noting that it didn’t take into account Romney’s proposal to eliminate the deduction for interest on state and local bonds (an investment break that, according to general Republican thinking, should receive a tax break). Romney said previously that such a deduction was “on the table,” but has not said it would definitely be eliminated under his plan.

8/16/12: Even With Conservative Additions, The Plan Doesn’t Add Up
TPC re-analyzes the plan and concludes that Jensen assumed more savings than could be realized from the elimination of the deduction for interest on state and local bonds. “Our main result still holds,” TPC writes.

8/23/12: Romney’s Corporate Tax Cuts Also Raise Middle Class Taxes
The Tax Policy Center analyzes Romney’s corporate tax plan, which would reduce revenues by $900 billion over 10 years. TPC had previously assumed Romney would pay for his corporate tax cut by eliminating corporate deductions, but that isn’t the case, according to the Romney campaign. TPC finds that Romney’s corporate cut would cost middle class taxpayers another $2,000 if he wants to maintain current levels of revenue.

8/28/12: Romney Advisers Adopt Bad Math
Romney adviser Martin Feldstein writes an editorial in the Wall Street Journal dismissing the TPC analysis. Feldstein’s math, however, excludes the corporate tax cut, redefines middle class, and overstates savings that could be gained from the elimination of upper-income tax breaks.

9/12: GOP Advisers Adopt Bad Math, Part II
Princeton professor Harvey Rosen, a former Bush adviser, publishes a study that assumes Romney’s plan will work because it will generate enough economic growth to pay any revenue loss, ignoring that the same logic was applied to other GOP-led tax cuts, including those signed by George W. Bush.

9/12: Romney Cites Five Debunked “Studies” To Back Up His Plan
Romney begins citing “five studies” that show his tax plan can work. Those studies are most likely Jensen’s, Feldstein’s, and Rosen’s, all of which have had their problems exposed. The other two are thought to be Wall Street Journal editorials that assert Romney’s plan is “mathematically possible” but add no new information.

9/9/12: Conservative Tax Expert Admits The Plan Doesn’t Work
Alan Viard, a tax expert at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, tells the New York Times that Romney will have “to cut rates significantly less than 20 percent if he wants to honor his other goals.”

9/10/12: Romney Adviser Still Can’t Name A Deduction He’d Eliminate
Romney adviser Tara Wall can’t name a single loophole or deduction Romney would close to help pay for his plan. Instead, she says “energy independence.”

9/25/12: Romney Adviser Admits The Plan Doesn’t Work
Romney adviser Kevin Hassett, also a fellow at AEI, says that if Romney can’t pay for his plan by eliminating deductions, he “would have a different change in rates.” That is, the tax cut would be smaller.

9/30/12: Paul Ryan Can’t Explain The Math Behind The Plan
Asked to explain the math of Romney’s tax plan on Fox News Sunday, vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says, “I don’t have time.”

9/30/12: Ryan Says ‘Keeping Tax Rates Down’ Is The Number One Priority
In the same interview, Fox host Chris Wallace asked Ryan what the number one priority of the tax plan was, if it couldn’t achieve both tax cuts and deficit reduction. “Keeping tax rates down,” Ryan said.

10/3/12: Romney Says ‘Number-One Principle’ Is Not Adding To The Deficit
In response to virtually the same question, Romney asserted that his number one priority was not “keeping tax rates down,” but avoiding increases to the deficit. “My number-one principle is, there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit,” Romney said during the first presidential debate.

10/3/12: Romney Proposes A New Idea — It Still Doesn’t Work
Ahead of the debate, Romney floats a new idea to pay for his plan: he will cap the amount of deductions each taxpayer can use at $17,000. This proposal would still fall well short of paying for Romney’s plan, according to TPC. And worse, it could curtail deductions for housing and health care that benefit the middle class.

10/3/12: Romney Walks Back His Own Support
In the first presidential debate, Romney seems to walk back support for his own tax plan. When President Obama criticizes the plan for adding to the deficit or raising taxes on the middle class, Romney says he would “absolutely not” support such a plan. Seemingly ignoring TPC, an AEI expert, and his own adviser, he then reasserts that his plan will cut tax rates by 20 percent and adhere to three principles: it will not add to the deficit, it will not cut taxes on the rich, and it will not raise taxes on the middle class.

10/3/12: Romney’s Web Site Debunks His Own Claims About The Wealthy
Romney’s campaign web site refutes his debate claim that he won’t cut taxes on the rich.

10/9/12: Romney Tweaks His Newest Idea, Making His Tax Math Even ‘Fuzzier’
On CNN, Romney adopts the idea to cap tax deductions he proposed just a week earlier. Instead of capping deductions at $17,000, he’ll now cap them at either $25,000 or $50,000. As the Washington Post’s Suzy Khimm notes, though, this makes the math of Romney’s tax plan even harder to work out. Placing the cap at $25,000, the Tax Policy Center found, would make it possible to avoid raising taxes on the middle class. It would also generate significantly less revenue. Placing it at $50,000, though, would render it irrelevant, since even taxpayers in the top 1 percent averaged only $43,208 in deductions last year.

10/9/12: Romney Needs “Flexibility”
Romney admits to the Des Moines Register that he will need “flexibility” to make his tax plan add up. At this point, it is no longer clear what tax plan Romney actually supports.
