about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
This evolved from a Dentist wondering why some people got crooked teeth.

Incredible discussion about food, health, longevity, and eating
Mark Sisson is the founder of Primal Kitchen Avocado Mayonnaise and other products. I buy his mayonaisse regularly and use it to make various sauces with spices. He has been doing a blog at Marksdailyapple for more than a decade, and maybe two. The man is very intelligent.
Thomas DeLauer is equally intelligent in his own right. He's been doing health videos on YouTube for almost a decade (I think). He brings up science and relevant, reliable scientific studies that accentuate his vids.
You can get an education from both of these men.

Last Week in the Republican Party
This is from the Lincoln Project, a foundation of repentant Republican operatives who are shocked at the fascism and wholesale ownership of the Republican Party by incompetent personalities.

Coach D keeping it real
Marjorie Taylor Green talking shit about the shooting down of objects and Chinese spy balloons, and also comparing George Floyd with Ashley Babbitt.
Storming the capital with malignant intent versus pinning an innocent black man with a knee on his neck for 8 minutes. Seriously?

All they do is complain
Chris Hayes does a good job of explaining the straight-jacket that is the modern Rethuglican party.

The proto American fascism history
Rachel Maddow is a national treasure. Here she is with Harry Litman on the MeidasTouch youtube channel discussing the history of the 1930's and the German infiltration of the isolationist movement in the United States.
Click here for a link to the Ultra podcast on this history that Rachel has been doing/done since October 2022 on apple podcasts.

The Clogging Arteries mythology
Eating fats alone DOES NOT CLOG your arteries.
Arteries get messed up for other reasons. Namely, the real cause is inflammation and insulin.
Watch the video to find out.
I remember waiting for some deli meat at a local Safeway about 9 ~ 10 years ago behind this fellow who ordered a sandwich and asked not to have avocado. Now I absolutely love avocado, so I was curious, and asked the fellow about the request for skipping the avocado. His response was that avocado has "so much fat" -- which was stunning to someone who understands the actual science. I didn't trip on the dude, but I do recall saying something like, "I hear ya." If I had known him personally I might have provided some knowledge, but I've learned not to say anything to people I don't know when it comes to food choices and dietary belief systems.
It's kind of like saying to Christian's that their Jesus probably never really existed, and that their Bible is actually a revision a thousand times over of what is also in the Hebrew Torah and the Muslim Koran -- with some other messianic chapters written by early wanderers speaking of the one God to poor people all across the Mediterranean world. Christianity was very much a social movement of upheaval amongst the poor classes, so much that even the Roman Government had no choice but to co-opt the various sects as the most effective means of reducing their magnitude.

Yes it happened
The Trump campaign colluded with the Russians.
And Bill Barr covered for him.

What President Biden has done for you
Click here for an article by David Dayen at the American Prospect magazine explaining how President Biden has used the executive branch to push all the government agencies to actually enforce the existing laws against monopolistic practices and incentivizing economic sectors to become more competitive -- instead of oligarchical fiefdoms.
Most Americans probably don't know about this backstory, because it gets short-shrifted by the corporate media -- which coincidentally has a vested interest in consolidation and monopolization of economic sectors. None of which actually benefits the public at large, as has been evident (again) over the last 40 years since Ronald Reagan inaugurated the modern mythology that glossed over the lessons learned in the past, in the aftermath of the early part of the 1900's.
But humans don't change. Without proper regulations and enforcement of laws, corruption creeps and power accumulates.
Here is one small example I myself did not even know:
Though the consequences of too few buyers in an economy (monopsony) had been the subject of numerous studies in recent years, presidential-level discussion of monopsony and monopoly in the same breath was novel.
The Justice Department centered worker harms in its biggest legal victory to date, a successful challenge to the merger between publishers Simon & Schuster and Penguin Random House. The deal would have narrowed major publishers in the U.S. from five to four, and the Antitrust Division argued that authors would suffer from fewer bidders and smaller advances for their work. The judge ruled in DOJ’s favor, saying that the deal would “substantially lessen competition to acquire the publishing rights to anticipated top-selling books.” For a judiciary that has focused primarily on consumers as defined by Bork in antitrust cases, it was a sea change and a model for the future.
