maria -

you have a good point - acupuncture is not entirely "painless" as everyone thinks. A few points are quite painful (and are meant to be) when they stick you.

Gloves, no gloves, no matter. I'd rather have my dentist wear gloves.

Still undecided on the electrified acupuncture though. ;)

Are you talking about the little jumper cables attached? I'm also undecided on that one.

zenny,

re: reiki - thanks for backing me up on that, I'm glad I'm not being unreasonably skeptical.

zenny,

Western drugs tend to cure stuff quickly but at a cost(financial and physical). A mix of eastern(preventative) and western for serious cases is best, IMHO.

a very good way to put it.

zenny, totally agree. just don't knock the pro-western med guys as unenlightened. That's what they trust, and their trust in it isn't faulty.

I haven't tried a Japanese acupuncturist, but have been to Chinese many times and have recommended it to many others.

Western alternative medicine has also developed some interesting practices like Rolfing.

I will say though I am a bit skeptical about Reiki.

zenny, My point is that western institutions like hospitals, organizations, and others, are recognizing the legitimate health benefits of eastern practices. That insurance companies are covering some of these treatments may be the final standard of western acceptance. That said, western drugs are the most effective treatments known to mankind.

correction: That said, the introduction of western medicine (pharmaceuticals, hospital procedures) were a great gift to the REST of the world.

zenny, I appreciate the merits of eastern and western medicine (which would you prefer to call traditional? I think they both are).

That said, the introduction of western medicine (pharmaceuticals, hospital procedures) were a great gift to the west of the world. Now the West are realizing the additional benefits of incorporating eastern ways. Maybe now a true "holistic" approach?

this is supposed to be news? Did we think that before the "diaries" were found that Osama was really just looking for peace, love, and better relations with the West?

1) you're assuming that Osama actually died in the raid and not sometime in the years before (i.e. you're buying one of the confused alternate versions the white house has put out) 2) The peacenik Barack Obama lovers are suddenly foaming at the mouth at how wonderful it is that Obama supposedly "ordered" someone's death. 3) International law means nothing. It's a farce. Does not exist.

yabits yabits -

you really have no knowledge of any major events and news before 2 years ago. The Clinton campaigns were proven in a court of law to have received millions of dollars from the Chinese military, funneled from generals to prominent Chinese-Americans to the Clinton campaigns. People went to jail for this. :-)

The proof of how clueless the Demo are: the 2010 election results.

If this is a war, then why wasn't Bin Laden tried as a war criminal?

because according to the official report, he was dangerously armed with a TV remote control and had to be taken out immediately.

yabits -

you're grasping at straws. Obama was an unknown, no-show Senator who was at the bottom of the polls. Hillary was the heir-apparent, and had the full financial backing of the Chinese military. That Obama won shows that the Dems really had no clue and no agenda. :-)

It won't be Gingrich taking the oath of office in Jan 2013; and it won't be Obama either. Eighteen months is a loooong time in US politics.

Right. It's funny the Demos are insulting the GOP because they don't have a top candidate a mere weeks into the running.

Well, Obama was a nobody at this same time in 2007. By that same standard, considering Obama beat the Dem frontrunner Hillary, I guess that means the Dems don't know their heads from their backsides?

Pretty much the worst smear tactics used in recent political recent in the US have been with GWB's campaigns and when McCain and the dolt were running. The mud-slinging and advertising from the McCain camp (a 'shadow' creeping over a sleeping baby, or someone parting waves in the sea, etc.) were the most ridiculous in history in particular.

LOL!! I guess you missed practically every one of the Dem ads then.

tkoind2, williB

I agree with both of you. The GOP needs a candidate that is not from the same, incompetent, backroom club like they always seem to offer. (note - this applies to Dems as well.)

Willi is also right that the tone of politics now is limited to smearing, and the current Dem strategists (and partisan media) are the champions of that technique.
