Thanks for posting this news,someone needs blood every 2 seconds,give the gift of life! I was aRead More non-donating Jehovah's Witness for 33 years and now a regular Red Cross blood donor with my 'blood buddy' girlfriend. Jehovah's Witnesses blood transfusion confusion Jehovah's Witnesses take blood products now in 2012. They take all fractions of blood.This includes hemoglobin, albumin, clotting factors, cryosupernatant and cryo-poor too, and many, many, others. If one adds up all the blood fractions the JWs takes, it equals a whole unit of blood. Any, many of these fractions are made from thousands upon thousands of units of donated blood. Jehovah's Witnesses now accept every fraction of blood except the membrane of the red blood cell. -- Danny Haszard

What caught my eye immediately was the following. "High school teachers are not writingRead More letters of recommendation for prospective college ". Yeah, let's punish the students, the ones that have no control over the situation. Teachers Unions are Pure Evil, and should be eliminated. The public school system should be eliminated period. A voucher system is long overdue. The public school system is corrupt from top to bottom in my opinion. Wake up people!!!!
