Beer for Menopause

I posted a link to Pink's new song, Dear Mr. President a few days back. I've come across a recent live performance of the song by Pink. Very powerful. This isn't some bimbette regurgitating some lines someone wrote for her. This is an artist with something to say passionately singing about something that matters to her. The crowd reaction and sing along gives me hope. Come on, youth. Save us.

Pink- Dear Mr President - Live

Do as I say, not as I do.

Democrats Suggest Double Standard on Leaks:
"Key Democratic legislators yesterday joined Republicans in saying they do not condone the alleged leaking of classified information that led to last week's firing of a veteran CIA officer. But they questioned whether a double standard exists that lets the White House give reporters secretly declassified information for political purposes."
This is telling when your personal propaganda machine can't couch a question regarding your approval rating in a manner that only garners 33% approval. There's just no good way to ask it, huh FOX? Bush sucks, bottom line.

FOX Poll: 33 percent:
"NEW YORK — More Americans disapprove than approve of how George W. Bush, Donald Rumsfeld and Congress are doing their jobs, while a majority approves of Condoleezza Rice. President Bush’s approval hits a record low of 33 percent this week, clearly damaged by sinking support among Republicans."
No only does he suck, he's dangerous:

George Bush Is Becoming An Increasingly Dangerous President:
"President George W. Bush's presidency is a disaster - one that's still unfolding. In a mid-2004 column, I argued that, at that point, Bush had already demonstrated that he possessed the least attractive and most troubling traits among those that political scientist James Dave Barber has cataloged in his study of Presidents' personality types.

Now, in early 2006, Bush has continued to sink lower in his public approval ratings, as the result of a series of events that have sapped the public of confidence in its President, and for which he is directly responsible. This Administration goes through scandals like a compulsive eater does candy bars; the wrapper is barely off one before we've moved on to another."
ummm, yes!

Is U.S. being transformed into a radical republic?:
"We Americans came not from a revolution but from an evolution.

That is in large part why our so-called revolution produced success while most throughout history did not. We came as much from the Magna Carta as from our own doings, as much from British common law and parliamentary development as from the Declaration of Independence and Continental Congress.

Unlike the true revolution on the other side of the Atlantic that led to Napoleon's dictatorship and strife and conflict all across Europe, our evolution founded the greatest country the world has ever seen. That was true in every element of power and in the uniqueness that makes us great, our constant striving for 'a more perfect union' and, as we do so, our open arms for the other peoples of the world 'yearning to be free.'

As Alexis de Tocqueville once said: 'America is great because she is good. If America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.'

In January 2001, with the inauguration of George W. Bush as president, America set on a path to cease being good; America became a revolutionary nation, a radical republic. If our country continues on this path, it will cease to be great - as happened to all great powers before it, without exception."
I thought we already used beer to ease the symptoms of menopause? OH, its for the women!

Scientists working on beer for menopause:
"Prague - Women struggling with the discomforts of menopause may soon find relief in a cold glass of beer.

Experts in the Czech Republic are working on a beer specifically brewed for women experiencing hot flashes, troubling sleeping and other woes during this phase.

The low-kilojoule, low-alcohol beer being developed by the Prague-based Research Institute of Brewing and Malting contains heightened levels of phytoestrogen, a plant form of the hormone estrogen often lacking in menopausal women, said the institute's director Karel Kosar."
