"An extraordinary man was featured on the Glenn Beck TV program, Jon Huntsman, founder of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Asked by Beck to share, Huntsman told a tale of amazing integrity. In the 80s, Huntsman sold his business for 54 million dollars. The buyer's lawyers were slow. In the 6 months it took them to finalize the contract, Huntsman's business grew in value 5 times their original deal. The buyer was willing to pay more. Huntsman said he would stick to their original deal because he had given his word and shook the buyer's hand. Huntsman's character and integrity is a striking contrast to the caliber of men and women we have running our country.
"Huntsman shared a quote from Winston Churchill, 'With integrity, nothing else counts. Without integrity, nothing else counts.' I could not agree more. The kind of people we put in office is extremely important."
Brother X says: "Integrity is for white folks. You won't find me with any!"

"But I’ll stick to my position: black folks need more doctors, engineers, mathematicians and scientists. We don’t need a black president. He’s nice to have; we just don’t need the guy. Now, before some readers – you know who you are – go off on one of your 'there goes Kane being an Uncle Tom again' rants, let me point out that I have some interesting company. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been saying the same thing for decades. Of course, we never listen to him when he says it. If he’s dissing Jews, we’re all ears. If he’s talking about Uncle Toms or evil white folks, we can’t get enough of it. If he’s running down that Willie Lynch nonsense, we sit in rapt attention, clinging to every false, misleading word. But let him say that more black folks need to focus on math and science, and we tune him out faster than Tiger Woods rushing to date the nearest white woman. Math? Science? Engineering? Aren’t those things for white folks and Asians? Hrabowski and a superb group of black students at UMBC are proving those things most certainly are not."
"Officials must naturally defend compulsory passenger X-rays as harmless. But they are signing no guarantees because ionizing radiation in the X-ray spectrum damages and mutates both chromosomal DNA and structural proteins in human cells. If this damage is not repaired, it can lead to cancer. New research shows that even very low doses of X-ray can delay or prevent cellular repair of damaged DNA, raising questions about the safety of routine medical X-rays. Unborn babies can become grotesquely disfigured if their mothers are irradiated during pregnancy. Heavily X- rayed persons of childbearing age can sustain chromosomal damage, endangering offspring. Radiation damage is cumulative and each successive dose builds upon the cellular mutation caused by the last. It can take years for radiation damage to manifest pathology."
