Lying for Jesus: Part II

After living with cretinist freaks and the "Intelligent Designers" for awhile, nothing that the committed, but stupid, do surprises me much anymore. But VD(j) is an exception.

He had a guy on his show this morning talking about stem cells. No ... he's not a doctor. Not a scientist either. Perhaps he had a 9th grade course in Biology. He sells his self-published books. And he also lies a lot.

There was so much wrong with what he said, I can't outline them all. But let's take this gem for an example, since he made such a big deal out of it. He said that stem cells from [skeletal muscle] in the thigh made badly heart attack [cardiac muscle] damaged patients get out and walk, laugh and celebrate life again.

Here's what happens: see if you can detect any difference between this and what he says.

There are no stem cells in thigh muscle.

In patients, who are awaiting heart transplants, there have been injections of skeletal muscle into the damaged cardiac muscle and it seems to provide enough strength that the heart can work until such time as a transplant is performed. It is not a cure -- not even close. Read about it here....

In other cases he describes injections of bone marrow stem cells into the pancreas to correct Type I diabetes. Odd ... that nothing ... absolutely nothing ... that appears in PubMed (which follows over 10,000 medical journals from all over the world) about this cure. Nor does the cure he credits to unknown Chinese doctors of curing Parkinson's Disease.

In other words he is a crank, selling a book, and of course, he finds VD(j)s to give him free publicity.

If anyone cares in the slightest about the lies from those that oppose stem cell research I can post audio clips.

I find it staggering that Springfield doctors are (a) so poorly informed about these medical cures that they haven't made it to town; (b) the medical literature has totally ignored this prize-winning, earthshaking even, mediacal advance, so 15 year olds can die of complications of diabetes.

I posted this on Chief Shitsfrommouth's blog but I doubt he'll post it because he's much too conservitive. I believe we've found origin of those pesky 'moonbats', and wouldnt you know it....most of em come from Israel. Link below.

Of course, it wasn't up ... but he did read the blog.

I like the photo he uses.

He looks like he just finished kissing the business end of a toilet brush.

VDJ has brought his daughter to work with him this week.. He is so highly thought of at the station that he had no help (everyone else went on vacation). This guy is way out there. He thinks he knows so much but doesn't know anything. He shoots from the hip and hopes no one knows the difference. Believe me he will be gone soon. The station is looking for a replacement and one might even be hired.

Well, I'd gladly fill in the position for him do it but I'd probably piss off too many Christians and Neo-conservatives. Heck, I might even end up dead like a Kennedy, or 'suicided' to death.
Plus, Id have to share bandwidth with that awful Laura Ingraham and the rest of her nasty little ilk. Would anyone be interested in starting a local mid-left leaning (i.e. someone with a rational thought process) radio show? We'll call it 'Shut up and Talk'. Muhahahaa.

(btw, that was me that posted the moonbat story, forgot to sign it)

VDJ's daughter has also changed her name from Shitenkirk to Jericho, how sweet.

I heard the only way VDJ gets any advertising is through trade outs. If he didn't have that no one would advertise. Remember the fresh sqeezed water scam?

Indeed I would. But I wouldn't change it to a bunch of rocks that fell down on the ground and lay there undiscovered -- as rocks lying on the ground -- for 2,500 years.

After VDJ is fired he will joint the Ultimate fighting league under the name, " The Mt. Vernon Assassin", this third name change will not be a "Super document" like his citizenship papers but will be recoginied by both the World boxing association and the World wrestling association.

That "Fresh Squeezed Water" thing is NO "scam". I know the owner of the company. He is no huckster.

What ever happened to the guy VDJ was supporting for Mayor. Is it true he couldn't get 275 people to sign a petition for him to run?? You just got to love VDJ. He is saving our town from evil.
