The Origins of the American Dream (hoax) 

The American Dream is back, or at least President Donald Trump says so. Once again every American, regardless of background, race, gender or education, can, through sheer hard work, make it to the very top and become rich. Did the idea of the America Dream, in which nothing is impossible as long as you work hard, evolve with the ‘founding fathers’ of the nation? Is it intrinsic to the country’s identity?

Not in Hawaii

When I was in Hawaii for my honeymoon, the local pizza shop had no idea what I was talking about when I ordered this. Now I know why.

The Greek-Canadian man who said he was the first to put pineapple on pizza has died at the age of 83. According to an obituary by his family, Sam Panopoulos had been in hospital in London, Ont., when he died suddenly on Thursday.

Shaken Baby Strikes Again. And Joe Whitaker Sits in Jail

This syndrome may be fake, but its consequences are real (unless this story is a hoax). 

In 2013 Joe and Charlotte’s baby Jaden suddenly collapsed. The parents called 9-1-1 but almost immediately doctors suspected child abuse. Despite a number of medical experts testifying that Jaden had a genetic or nutritional defect that caused weak bones and other health problems, Joe was convicted of child abuse and sentenced to 15 years, the minimum the judge could give him.

Pediatricians Say Scrap The Fruit Juice

Real fruit and filtered water in metal flasks the only way to get your water intake.

Pediatricians Say Scrap The Fruit JuiceFruit juice has been marketed (and in some cases, recommended by physicians) as a healthy, natural source of vitamins and calcium. Kids like the way it tastes — in fact, children and adolescents continue to be the highest consumers of fruit juice and juice drinks, but nutritional benefits are very questionable.

Albino thesis

Here’s some black history you haven’t heard.

It is no exaggeration that this post deals with one of the greatest and perhaps least discussed deception in American history, and as far as I can tell, human history. It is the distortion and erasure of ‘black history,’ not only American but global. I’ll go straight to the point, and elaborate in the ensuing paragraphs: that the parts of the Americas reached by European ‘explorers’ initially and for the subsequent 300 years were populated mostly by indigenous people who would be and are today called black, that the trans-Atlantic slave trade for all intents and purposes never happened, and that the identities of ‘colored,’ ‘negro’ and later ‘African-American’ were manufactured by the Western political establishment in a 200-year campaign of paper genocide to deprive black people of their native America and (ostensibly, given the state of tribal sovereignty) pass sole claim to indigenous rights to nomadic and semi-nomadic, ethnically different people known as ‘Native Americans,’ who were a minority group in these first-encountered areas and a majority only in the Plains, Arctic, and Southwest regions.
