The Confederate Flag Is Pretty, The Mexican Flag Is For Illegals

Janie Maders owner of AJ’s Cycles in Phoenix AZ took down a Confederate Flag when the Arizona Republic asked about it, according to the azcentral article “Phoenix business owner takes down Confederate flag“. She only had it up because she thought it was “pretty”. She had other flags up too like one of Puerto Rico. She’s not Racist.

But she said she wouldn’t put up a Mexican flag. “I wouldn’t want illegals of any nationality coming to my store,” she said.

FDA Approves Bark Scorpion Antivenin

AZCentral reports that the FDA has approves a Bark Scorpion antivenin. The little scorpions I get around the house here in Rio Rancho are not Bark Scorpions, thankfully. They sometimes are in New Mexico, but they are mostly in Arizona and Mexico.

Anascorp is made by a Mexican company, Instituto Bioclon, from the plasma of horses that are immunized with scorpion venom. The FDA approved the drug based on a UA-led study that found that children treated with the drug rapidly improved with few side effects.

Scorpions are a major problem in Mexico, where nearly a quarter-million scorpion stings are reported each year.

Boyer said the company agreed to open its doors to the FDA’s rigorous inspection process to ensure its manufacturing practices passed muster.

According to Boyer, this is the first time the FDA approved a drug that was made and developed in Latin America.
