Hillary’s toe…

leave a comment »

The woman just  can’t stop  lying,  can she?  When does she wear heels?  The woman can barely walk,  as evidenced by the photos we saw of her being hauled up steps like a sack of feed during the campaign, so she wasn’t running anywhere.  She told us years ago she drank only tea, and if you’re running downstairs in heels you don’t fall backwards.

I’ve had a broken toe,  and all the doctor did was tape it to its neighbors,  tell me to walk slightly duck-footed and not to play kickball for a few weeks.   You don’t need a boot on a broken toe.   Why does Hillary! imagine we would believe her?

Eat your breakfast…

leave a comment »

Yet another study says that skipping breakfast or eating a poor one is bad for you.   I’m trying to eat smaller dinners these days,  but I’m still not that hungry when I arise in the morning.  On the other hand,  I love typical breakfast fare  —  eggs,  bacon,   sausage,  omelettes,  frittatas,  crust-less quiches  —  but I prefer eating them at brunch time.

Never mind –  I’m having them  for breakfast  now.

Organic disappointments…

with 3 comments

Of course,  it will shock you only if you haven’t been paying attention for the last decade or so.   The simple truth is that plants which are totally and truly organic spend considerable energy  fighting off  pests and diseases, which quite often results in produce which is rather ugly and not very palatable.

A bit of assistance from lavender oil or other biological treatments generally produces food which looks better and offers a full complement of nutrients.   I say this as a home gardener suffering from a much higher than customary invasion of insects all too eager to sample my fruits and veggies and herbs.   Let’s face it — anything which will eat a Thai pepper plant is a tough critter,  and frankly I don’t know what it is,  but I’m not anxious to meet it face to face.

The organic means much less than you think,  but it passes the fishing lure test,  which is that you convinced someone to buy your premise or product.   Yes,  less chemicals are better health-wise,  but if your crop fails because it lacks sufficient protection,  your health has not been helped.

You can eat organic if you wish,  but do your homework so that you know the vendors,  and what you are paying such a high price for.   You could also take a mixed approach,  as I do.  I grown some of my own food,  and much of what I buy I buy young and tender,  before the plant or critter has time to absorb much from its environment.

Beef comeback…

leave a comment »

Of course,  beef  never left  my menu.  It’s tasty,  simple to prepare,  very versatile,  and now that the price has decreased,  quite affordable.   There is still a medical bias against beef,  despite the extremely cautious retreat on its defects as a food item.   In fact,  there is still considerable bias against all types of meat,  and the food Nazis  will simply stamp their feet and says the environment has rendered the item unsafe if they can think of nothing else.   Remember that the same junk science responsible for this is being foisted upon you in the climate change/global warming/climate weirdness debate.

Calorie counts don’t work…

leave a comment »

The Obama Administration will enforce their use anyway,  but common sense tells you  calorie counts  don’t work.   If there anyone in the nation who is too stupid to figure out that if you eat big burgers,  fries and a big soft drink and you gain weight,  you should stop eating that meal daily?  Well,  there are probably some Obama and Hillary supporters who may be,  but no one else has an excuse.

Even the few people who actually read calorie counts appear to have little actual understanding of their meaning.   They don’t even know how many calories an average person should consume during a day.   I am sick to death of the ever-present nanny state trying to tell us what to eat, when to eat it,  where to buy it.   If I ate as the government’s food pyramid instructs,  I’d weigh 300 pounds and be deathly ill.   My body doesn’t happen to process simple carbohydrates very well,  so I eat precious few of them.   I weigh what I should and I don’t feel deprived because I don’t feel bad.   Is it too much to ask people to be individually responsible for themselves in some small way?

Hillary’s diagnosis…

with one comment

Let’s see,  if Trump is unhealthy because he needs to lose 15 or 20 pounds, why is Hillary deemed healthy when she needs to lose far more than that? Hillary thinks nothing of spending $1,500 for a jacket,  yet all that money, combined no doubt with custom tailoring,  can not hide the fact that she is at least 40 pounds overweight.  The tip-off is that all of her jackets are swing jackets,  which do not follow the body’s shape,  but are cut to stand off from the body.   When she clasps her hands in front of her,  you can often see her excess flesh pressing against the front of her outfit.   There are a number of shots of her climbing stairs,  where you can see the outline of her fanny against her jacket.

Second,  no one who takes a blood thinner is healthy.   Coumadin is a serious medicine,  and is not the first choice for most doctors helping patients avoid blood clots.

Third,  why does anyone expect Hillary to be any more truthful about her health than she is anything else?   The surprise may be that her doctor appears to have succumbed to the Clinton machine.  Why else would you provide a diagnosis which  does not  exist?   Why make other claims which don’t survive  scrutiny?
