The World Health Organization says alcohol kills 2.5 million people a year ►   http://www.who.int/substance_abuse/facts/alcohol/en/index.html.  Many more millions are crippled by alcohol. 

Alcohol disrupts the growth of new brain cells and lowers IQhttp://www.pnas.org/content/early/2010/05/20/0912810107.full.pdf.  See also ► http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2861155/. Human studies have found alcoholics to have a smaller brain size than moderate drinkershttp://pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/arh314/377-388.htm.

The anti-oxidants in wine are negligible - so there is no health benefit in drinking any amount.  The ORAC values show the amount of anti-oxidants (that neutralize free radicals) in food.  Most foods have 8-800  times more anti-oxidants per 100 g than white wine (ORAC value 392 at the bottom of the list) ► http://www.phytochemicals.info/list-orac-values.php.  

 1.2 million people die every year on Earth in car accidents.  In some countries about 70%  of fatally injured drivers have excess alcohol in their bloodhttp://www.who.int/roadsafety/projects/manuals/alcohol/en/

Alcohol raises blood pressure and can trigger epilepsy, mental disorders, cardiovascular disease, cirrhosis of the liver and various cancers. Alcohol weakens the immune system and impairs the brain even in rather small amounts.  It causes millions of fatal road traffic accidents, cases of domestic and workplace  violence, suicides.  

It's interesting that ending global hunger takes less money than the 100 billion dollars Americans spend on alcohol.  Also, over 50 nations drink even more alcohol per capita than Americans according to the World Health Organization report ► http://www.who.int/substance_abuse/publications/global_alcohol_report/msbgsruprofiles.pdf summarized in wikipedia ► http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_alcohol_consumption.  
 
 40% of violent crime is done by those under the influence of alcohol in the US ► http://www.ncadd.org/index.php/learn-about-alcohol/alcohol-and-crime.  I hope that lovers of world peace and non-violence are aware of these numbers.

13% of humanity goes hungry and millions die of hunger every year, while a third of food is wasted ► goo.gl/qnWTV.  20 billion dollars could prevent this waste of food per some studies.  The money spent on alcohol could end hunger, cure a disease (instead of causing diseases), provide clean energy, help some other humanitarian cause.  That's why I abstained all my life from alcohol.  In over 100 nations, 7-40% of people abstained from alcohol all their life.  (USA data ► http://www.niaaa.nih.gov/alcohol-health/overview-alcohol-consumption/drinking-statistics).  Compassion ♥ for humanity can help us to quickly shift these lifelong abstainers percentages in the 90s for all these 100+ nations. :)  Nikola Tesla (whose inventions are in every building with electricity) predicted one day we will live without eating or drinking liquids, using just cosmic energy.  :)  I can't wait. :)  

The Seventh Day Adventists from Loma Linda, USA are the longest living group of people in North America, and they do not drink alcohol ► http://www.bluezones.com/live-longer/education/expeditions/loma-linda-california.  The centenarians of Loma Linda do not drink at all - proving that you don't need any alcohol to live far longer than the average moderate drinker.   

One thing few know is that a lot of celebrities don't drink ►  http://rollingout.com/entertainment/celebrities-dont-drink.

I was supposed to go surf fishing today but the temperature dropped from 73 yesterday to 32 right now. Sucks.  Click on the map link to see a satellite view of where I was going to go.  It's beautiful. It helps to click the down arrow next to "explore" in the lower right hand corner. Thanks

FTA: [n a stunning admission, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy revealed to House Science, Space and Technology Committee chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) that the agency neither possesses, nor can produce, all of the scientific data used to justify the rules and regulations they have imposed on Americans via the Clean Air Act. In short, science has been trumped by the radical environmentalist agenda. ] ... yep!

I've got a liberal that sides against the Bundy Family Ranch. Feel free to help me convert him by weighing in.  Be respectful or you may be called a racist. (not by him but liberal posters).

Need Tech Help  Can any of you tech Gurus out there tell me how I can capture the satellite view on the link below?  I want to save pics like this so I can hang them in my home office. I want to enlarge them to at least 8 1/2 by 11 or larger without it getting blurry. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank You.

Is Obama a Homo? Sure looks that way. 
 
Obama's homosexuality is well known in circles where people know him and his ways. In high school he was thought of as the "gay druggie" who almost never told the truth. No one trusted what he said after being lied to a few times.  
http://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2013/11/07/woman-says-she-knew-obama-in-high-school-as-a-homosexual-druggie-foreign-student/
Mia Marie Pope knew Obama at their Punahou high school in Honolulu, Hawaii, during the late 1970s. She knew him then by the name of Barry Soetoro. In this interview on October 31, 2013, with Revere...

Maybe this is why Newt wanted a moon base?
China’s president is calling on his country to boost its military power in space by increasing coordination between its air and space defense programs.

Income security?  Just say welfare, free food, and free housing.

Good luck trying to get thru. The number above is a fax. The number published in the local phone book is also bogus.
