    Using a Sperm Bank - Expert Interview with Eric Kendall

    in Health

    A mamma-to-be may use a sperm bank for many reasons: 


    -She's a single lady


    -Her partner has azoospermia (near to no detectable sperm)


    -Her partner has compromised semen quality


    -Her partner is unable to donate sperm due to a history of physical injury or cancer treatment


    If you are considering using a sperm donor, you need to understand it from all angles.


    Using a credible sperm bank has many legal and medical advantages.  It can also really increase your odds of pregnancy success and having a healthy baby.


    Using a sperm bank probably was never in your childhood vision of how you'd make a family, but learning more about it may allay many fears and misconceptions.  


    Tune in as I interview Eric Kendall of the Seattle based European Sperm Bank.

    Lions & Wolverines & Bears, Oh My!

    in Politics Conservative

    The GOP establishment’s phonycon-media-consultant-donor complex is falling apart as their operatives lash out in a rage like cornered animals for fear that their control of the electoral process is about to end. These wonky pussies, right-wing liberal progressives and their canned-idiots spasm and wet themselves in the face of a full frontal assault from the American Lion, Mama Grizzly and a vulgarian wave of wolverines!


    Globalist oligarchs and their puppets have been messing with us and extracting us for decades and yet we do not revolt! Why?  Because the oligarchs permit us to participate in elections between two pre-selected canned-idiots every now and then.  The Hegelian dialectic has immersed us in Cultural Marxism so long that even though we sense something is amiss, we lay the blame on the ‘other’ side while globalists erase our national sovereignty.   In a rigged scheme voting is merely giving legitimacy to tyranny.  It’s fixed; break it! Release the Kraken! In 2016 use your vote as a weapon.


    This has nothing to do with ideology, policy, substance or even an electoral process, or any candidate or party, not even Donald Trump.  This is the last peaceful option to dislodge the globalist oligarchs and their sycophants and restore American Nationalism in the hope that liberty may rise once again.  Break the rigged system, smash it to pieces. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, corporatists, oligarchs, kleptocrats, useful idiots and their fellow travelers you MUST CRUSH the globalist progressive-corporatist oligarchs and their canned-idiot meat-puppets on the ‘left’, ‘right’ and everywhere. . .for liberty!

    Jan. 18, 2016, 10pm (PST) - Mandy The Doll with Chronicles of the Unknown

    in Paranormal

    Tonight on Spaced Out Radio, we introduce the team of Canada's newest television ghost hunting series, Chronicles of the Unknown. The team consists of Glen, Derrick, Mike and Troy, as they set out across Western Canada to film suspected haunted locations and objects that are rarely ever investigated.

    Their initial series, which is filming locations up the Gold Rush Trail, takes them to a museum in Quesnel, British Columbia. Here, in this pristine antique location, sits Mandy. Mandy is a 100 year old porcelin doll, who is said to be alive and well. Mandy the Doll has been terrorizing the Quesnel & District Museum where she's been on display since 1991. The antique doll was already 91 years old when she was given to the museum from an unnamed donor, a donor who couldn't handle having Mandy in her house anymore. Why? Because Mandy had begun to do some very, very strange things.

    So, tonight, the team from Chronicles of the Unknown will investigate Mandy the Doll. We will join them live, on location, during their Investigation.
