Look at what may come our way

So, for all you who love, or at least approve of, ObamaCare need to read this story.  Basically, an immigrant to New Zealand gets too fat so the government there wants to deport him so he doesn’t become a liability to their GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM.

Hey, Chubs, you’re not just fat, you’ve got a disease!

You read right.  Obesity has now been deemed a disease by the American Medical Association.   Experts in obesity have struggled for years to have obesity recognized as a disease that deserves medical attention and insurance coverage as do other diseases. Previously the AMA and others have referred to obesity as “a major public health problem.”

Is your soap killing you?

Does your soap have triclosan in it?  You may want to check.  It’s a popular ingredient in many antibacterial soaps and other personal-care items, such as deodorants and mouthwashes.  It’s important you know.

How ObamaCare will fix the economy

This is not a real theory.  It is simply satirical.

Now this insidious plan from the Obama Administration depends on the public’s weakness for fast food, but I think it’s completely feasible.

The Benefits of Beer

I was out in the garage cleaning tonight, having a few beers (Lone Star to be specific) and I had a thought.  I remembered the monks in Germany drinking beer to survive the fasting of Lent.  I remembered thinking, when I first heard about it, that they were drunks looking for an excuse to drink.  After all, they are Germans.  Don’t get offended… I’m part German and I drink a few.  I’m also Irish and Scottish so I’m just screwed.  Anyway, I remembered writing a paper on the German monks while I was in college several years ago and remembered the nutritional value of beer.

Should We Legalize Drugs in the US?

The title of this article sums it up pretty well.  Should we legalize drugs in the US?  Pretty simple question on the front end, but then when we look into the subject a little more, it becomes more complex.  Questions like why, at what age, what restrictions, and so on and so forth come into the field.

The Gateway Drug

Marijuana has long been called a gateway drug and has been demonized as such for decades, but is it really as bad as they say it is?  If you believe the government, Marijuana is a gateway drug that leads you down a road to heavy narcotics like heroin and cocaine.  If you believe most users, it’s just the opposite.  However, if you subscribe the science side of the debate, then the answer can go either way.  Who should you believe?  Why should you believe them?  How do you know what to believe?

Those are hard questions to answer.  I don’t have the exact answer either, but I have my theory that says it really doesn’t matter either way.  Whoa, hold up!  Yes, I said it doesn’t matter.  It’s your body.  Would you allow a law to pass that says you can’t eat certain foods?  What about wear certain clothes?  What makes it alright for the government to tell us how to treat our own bodies?  Some say it keeps drug related crime down by making it illegal, but does it really?

Food Production and Your Health

As the title of this states, this is about prepper politics, but there are topics that I feel are important for everyone to know about.  I am not one of those people that goes strictly organic or vegan or anything like that.  I do, however, believe that it is always healthier to eat naturally and organically when possible and growing your own when possible is a cheap way to get your food and it be healthier, not to mention tastier, than what you find in the grocery store.

Why you should grow your own food

Companies like Monsanto have been churning out genetically modified foods for quite a while.  The human body has been surviving on organic foods for thousands of years.  It has been just in the last 50 or so years that we’ve started “making” foods for higher production.  The problem is many of the food produced goes to waste or is not used for its intended purpose.  It gets put in other products as filler, fuel, or any other number of things.

GMOs have been linked to birth defects, cancer, diabetes and other diseases.

New to gardening?

Google gardening.  You’ll find a lot of really good info.  Don’t be discouraged if your first garden fails.  It takes practice and you may have a year or two of dead plants.  Keep at it and you’ll get good enough to provide yourself and your family with healthy, tasty food.  Keep in mind you don’t have to plant the same things as you find in the stores.  Look for a different variety of tomatoes or lettuce.  You’ll be happy you did.  Feel free to email me for advice if you like.
