Erik Iverson: Idiot of the Day

Shares

You've got to love Erik Iverson. His most
pressing criticism of the governor is an objection to hiring
someone for a $28,000/year job to promote a math and science
initiative by coordinating funding from a variety of state sources.
It's non-story, other than than as another example of the Governor
using his authority to promote a beneficial program in the state.

What makes it sad is that Iverson didn't bother to research before
making the attack. It turns out that his former boss, Dennis
Rehberg, did the same thing when he was lieutenant governor:

Under attack by state Republican chairman Erik Iverson
for having state agencies chip in to hire a staff member, Gov.
Brian Schweitzer said Iverson's boss, U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg, did
the same thing as lieutenant governor in the 1990s.

I think it's time to send someone back to the farm team. He's
not quite ready for major league pitching.

  • Dear Katie, I’m sorry to hear that your doctor created a mistake and put you on Depo injections. You say that you are nonetheless getting injections? These injections are created from progestin, a synthetic form of progesterone which is used mainly as a method of birth control for females who cannot use any other form of birth control. One of the drug’s side effects is weight gain. A single injection lasts for three months. So if you are nonetheless acquiring these injections, please, please, tell your doctor which you don’t want to receive them any longer. The effects with the drug will remain within your body for three months, so during these three months, it may possibly be difficult to shed the added weight which you gained, no matter what you do. There are other far more gentler ways to regulate your periods and menses, especially at your tender formative age. Here are some of the negative reasons for not utilizing Depo-Provera: it can cause decreased bone density which can lead to osteoporosis, depression, increased blood clots, liver damage, headaches, hair loss, leg cramps, nervousness, dizziness, abdominal bloating, and weight gain. For your stretch marks on your stomach, it is possible to rub some vitamin E on them. Just puncture a capsule of vitamin E and gently apply to your stomach region once or twice each day. The stretch marks will respond towards the vitamin E should you use it regularly and use it as soon as they appear. The older the stretch marks, the longer and far more difficult they’re to rub away. It is best to use natural vitamin E, which can be distinguished from the synthetic form by the following small print and notations on the vitamin bottle: d- is the natural form, and dl- could be the synthetic form. Use only the d- form which could be the natural form. I believe that synthetic substances have caused enough harm already, and really should be laid to rest. Discover a doctor who will listen to you, have patience until the Depo drug gets out of your system and body, and continue follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen to get back to your former weight. Please read the posts above to learn a lot more about dieting. Excellent luck.
