Hmm... Very interesting. There is even mainstream evidence for what the guest said, that viruses can cause cancer: http://www.cancer.org/cancer/cancercauses/othercarcinogens/infectiousagents/infectiousagentsandcancer/infectious-agents-and-cancer-viruses
LOL at you telling one of the leading philosophers of science in the country how to draw conclusions!
It is only fairly recently that virus-induced cancers (not exactly "causing") are admitted in common knowledge. I remember hearing of it but with every doctor and member of the general public I knew talking only of how cancer is a degeneration of our cells, I was not to take viruses as cancer-inducing.
Deeper and deeper the hole is dug. No way out now. You've trapped yourselves with your own words.
It's not that apsterian has everything wrong, because he is right that JFK's desire to abolish the FED was one of the principal reasons for his assassination, as it is that he has a little knowledge but not enough to be making the kind of sweeping denuciations that are his stock in trade. He doesn't even have his quote right, because Sherlock observed, "Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth". There is more, but if he keeps up with his incessant Jew-bashing, I will have him permanently banned. So he is hereby given notice.

Dr. Fetzer,"Free speech" is not the same thing as freedom to disrupt the speech of others. This comments section, which many of us have come to enjoy and participate in, has turned into a nightmare. All we hope is that this out-of-control poster "apsterian" be completely banned from this board--the sooner the better. It ought to be understood by reasonable people that posting abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful or threatening material is not acceptable and is not a violation of free speech.
Get off, you maniac.
Jim is too busy with his many projects to visit here often. I can't believe he didn't kick you off.We will just have to continue the boycott until you shut up.
from http://www.spokesman.com/stories/1995/jan/15/a-spy-revealed-psychobiography-of-spymaster-allen/ "One is forced to wonder why this brilliant son of a Presbyterian minister, whose precocity was endlessly encouraged, would end up a master of deception whose favorite response to probing questions was, in Grose’s endlessly repeated locution, to emit a hearty ho ho ho!"
Free Speech is precious and must not be devalued by swine like apsterian.
Luv ya, Judyth. Thank you to you & Ed Haslam.
Yes, I had some thoughts on this too, as Judyth has been on twice now and really has said little about her relationship with LHO. Their chance meeting is strange given he was her assigned "handler." This was noted in some reviews of the book.
It's so important to have a list of best classic books to read especially if you are teaching a course. It is ot easy to find such a list if you Google it.I wonder what books were in Fetzer's bibliography when he taught the course in JFK?
I did say nothing against Palestinians. Majority of the jews who live there are hardly to blame either. You simplify things, apesholian, course you can't grasp the big picture, and you can't grasp the big picture cos you are fed by mass propaganda.
They were thrown out of their own homes and relocated. Now they fight, and so do Palestinians. Solve it. Censorship has to be applied on the internet sooner or later anyway. You can't spread hatred willy-nilly. What you can not do on the street, you should be not doing on the internet. Go out of your mothers basement, find a big jew and tell him straight in the face he is a pig, and see what happens.
Has anyone noted a connection between David Ferrie and The Process Church of the Final Judgement? The reason I ask is because the cult's leader, Robert de Grimston lived for a time on the same block as Ferrie's apartment and "mouse house"... http://plumbingthearchives.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-curious-neighborhood.html

That's like saying "Paree" or "Stanbul" or "Bahth" for Paris, Istanbul, Bath ... etc.It's pretentious to start saying "Nawlins".
I have lived in New Orleans my entire life and there are three ways to pronounce it, the two described above by you and also New OR Lee Ans all are used interchangeably... often by the same person during the same conversation.
What about Nawlins and Nyawlins?***The comments above indicating that Apsterian was trying to incite hatred of Jews is very short-sighted. When a supposed White Christian babbles insane nonsense about Jews as a religious and ethnic group, it makes Whites and Christians and - especially - antisemites look bad. It is much more reasonable to think that was Apsterian's goal.

SW, You're full of shit. I do mean tobe factious and Gary is absolutely correct. You, SW, have no comprehension of the dynamics of the spoken language as regards the use and pronunciation of individual words includingplace names. You obviously have limited linguistic skills. You really should try to get out more. In conversation people do change the way they use or pronounce words - for several reasons. Let us take the use and pronunciation of the place name New Orleans. Someone born in New Orleans WILL pronounce it different ways depending on to whom s/he is speaking. Different factors are at work in this process which are inherent in all use of language. By the way, SW, have you ever heard of discourse analysis?No? I thought not.Discourse analysis is the studyof the organization of language above the sentence or the clause and in particular the study of larger linguistic units such conversational exchanges and written texts. It follows therefore that discourse analysis is also concerned with the use of language in social contexts and in particular in the interaction and dialog between speakers. I know that's a lot for a supecilious bird brain like you SW to take in. Nevertheless, let us persevere. Back to the use and pronunciation of the place name"New Orleans". Let us read what Gary actually wrote:" I have lived in New Orleans my entire life and there are three ways to pronounce it, the two described above by you and also New OR Lee Ans all are used interchangeably... often by the same person during the same conversation." What Gary has written is totally correct and in keeping with how the SAME person could and would pronounce the place name "New Orleans" THREE different ways in the SAME conversation and, might I add, to the SAME person(s). Many factors are involved and this is where discourse analysis comes into play. "What are these factors?"I hear you mumble, WS. There are several. Let us pose the question:" How is it possible that the SAME person could pronounce "New Orleans" THREE different ways to the SAME person in the SAME conversation (exchange/dialog)?How is it possible? What are the factors incolved and how does discourse analysis work?1. Does the speaker know the person to whom he is speaking?2. Does the speaker know that person well?3. What is the nature of the conversation (exchange/dialog)?4. What are the circumstances of the conversation (exchange/dialog)? 5. Where does the conversation (exchange/dialog) actually take place? 6. Is the conversation (exchange/dialog) formal or informal?7. What are the linguistic abilities of the speaker?8. What are the linguistic abilities of the person being addressed by the speaker?9. Are the speaker and the person being addressed close friends?10. Are the speaker and person being spoken to linguistically receptive?11. What linguistic expectations does the speaker have of the person to whom he is speaking and vice versa?All these factors and MORE will determine how the SAME personcould and would say "New Orleans" THREE different ways in the SAME conversation and to the SAME person." That is absolute BS!!! An individual says it one way or the other. 99.5% of locals say New OR-lins, 1% say New OR-lee-ans. Anyone else says New Or-LEENZ, which means they are from out of town. Way out of town."On the contrary, SW. You're BS.In the meantime I suggest you check out discourse analysis and keep your mouth shut and fingers away from that keyboard.Gary is absolutely correct.Other than that, SW, I hate your guts.
I used to live in New Orleans and down there they say it a couple of ways. One way is "New Or-lee-ans" or just New Or-linz, either will do. But, if somebody says "New-or-leenz", well, that's completely fine too, It lets people know that they got a visitor among them and that's always very good. Everybody loves everybody down in Louisiana! Even apsterian...Sure they'd have to do a full body scan and manual search with extra strength rubber gloves but I think apsterian would kinda like that extra special in-depth personal touch....from what I've heard about him, anyway. Hmmm huh...In New Orleans airport the male body searchers are all six foot tall hunks so apsterian will get a nice thrill from that as well. Let's hope apsterian's got the right ta-ta because they don't want no wrong ho-ho down there in Louisiana. No siree, bub!!
Cancer is a curious disease. The cancer cells are actually immortal! Does this mean that the gene(s) for telomerase production is activated in cancer cells? A guest on Coast to Coast said that aging reversal of ordinary cells may be possible by switching on the telomerase production.
I found this: "Telomeres and cancerAs a cell begins to become cancerous, it divides more often, and its telomeres become very short. If its telomeres get too short, the cell may die. Often times, these cells escape death by making more telomerase enzyme, which prevents the telomeres from getting even shorter." -- http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/chromosomes/telomeres/
A message to all commenters, I am going to be monitoring the comments on this site starting in about a week and ALL comments must be ABOUT THE SHOW! If it's not I will delete your comment without hesitation, and not one curse word will be tolerated. We would rather have 2 comments about the show instead of 60 off topic slanderous, profanity filled nonsense. I want to be able to allow my friends and family to view the post and right now the comment section is an embarrassment to me and the people who try to bring a decent radio broadcast to someone looking for the truth.
As a community service to this board, I've taken down my comments.I never cursed, expressed hatred towards anyone and was just my opinion and experience.Gary, why don't you remove the comments from the, obviously, sociopathic Praefectus? He hates me because of opinion of the pronunciation of a city?Surely, he was emotionally, physically or sexually abused by his Rabbi when he was younger and harbors severe hatred towards the goyim.
If no curse words will be tolerated, then why the fuck is Praefectus's comment still posted and not taken down, Gary? Apparently, all of apsterian's comments have been removed, yet I don't recall him cursing in any posts.
SWNovember 10, 2014 at 7:40 PMGary, that is simply not true. I don't mean to be argumentative, but it matters not that you have lived in New Orleans your whole life. The fact is, that if you spend any time in New Orleans, whatsoever, you find 99% of the population saying New OR-lins. Only old timers, throwbacks and, specifically, old school blacks, say New OR-Lee-ans. Remember Mayor Morial? Also, I don't know where you live specifically, but your comment is most misleading when you state that New Or-LEENZ is is used by anyone other than a complete Yankee and out-of-towner like Prof. Fetzer., as well as the rarely used New OR-lee-ans. You have entered a whole new paradigm of BS when you state that three variations are used interchangeably during a single local's conversation! That is absolute BS!!! An individual says it one way or the other. 99.5% of locals say New OR-lins, 1% say New OR-lee-ans. Anyone else says New Or-LEENZ, which means they are from out of town. Way out of town.I hate to speak so strongly about this, Gary, but your comment is off base, completely nonfactual and misleading to those not from the New Orleans surrounding area.If what you said were true, people would pronouncing other words two or three different ways during a single conversation. Do you realize how silly, and unrealistic that is? You need not perpetuate any New Orleans pronunciation myths to the rest of the population. It's New OR-lins to just about everyone IN New Orleans, save for lifelong resident Gary King.Other than this stupid point, I love your JFK work, Gary!
