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.
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.
All they do is complain.

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.

Trump released deposition about his ancient rape case
This man is absolutely disgusting. He screams "I'll sue" to being confronted with the truth.
Such a weak pathetic "man".
But this is not a "man". A real man owns up to his bullshit and works towards improvement. A real man does not disrespect other people while acting like everything he does is acceptable. A real man does not treat others as playthings for his discretion. A real man respects women and does not rape them.
Period. Stop. End of story.

George Santos is a Brazilian stooge
Watch as all these Republicans with integrity stand up to the stooge. I am personally impressed.
Meanwhile while Bolsinaro took a vacation in Florida, the MaGA equivalent in Brazil stormed the capital.

What happens when ...
You eat 100 Tablespoons of butter in 10 days.
2,200 grams of Fat per day
1,170 grams of Saturated Fat per day.
Fats are good for you. Your brain is composed of 85% Fats. When you starve your body of Fats because you think fats are bad, your body actually contorts itself to figure out how to use the available fats in your diet to make your biology manage to function, because a low-fat diet is actually a starvation diet.
Processed fats (Canola Oil) are bad but that's because they are poly-unsaturated and rancid, which means that they easily degenerate into unhealthy toxic bi-products, and are inherently unstable. That's why Saturated fats are good for you.
Eating fats does not cause arteriosclerosis. Fat does not clog your arteries. Having Fats in the blood is not due to eating a lot of fats in your diet.
