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.
The reality is that your body processes food based upon the macronutrients, with weight and calories both being proxies for that prima facie intake of the 3 main macronutrients. Here is Jason Fung translating this truth from the famous Women's Heart Health longitudinal study.

The Keto Diet
Here is Dr. David Harper on a Canadian British Columbia show called "Conversations that Matter".
For 30 years, Dr. David Harper, taught medical students that a low-fat, high-carb diet was the way to eat to prevent chronic disease.
Today, he admits, "I got it wrong."
“We now have 20 years of scientific evidence that a well-formulated ketogenic diet reduces chronic disease.”
A keto diet is high in fats, low in carbs.
But Harper, the co-author of the BioDiet: The Scientifically Proven, Ketogenic Way to Lose Weight and Improve Health and a cancer expert, stresses, “A ketogenic diet is not a cure for cancer. Rather, it is an effective adjunct therapy along with a standard of care.”
Until recently Harper was a visiting scientist in the B.C. Cancer Research Centre's Terry Fox Laboratory.
His research indicates a ketogenic diet has multiple health benefits in cardiovascular disease, diabetes and weight reduction.
“The Axis of Illness”, according to Harper are, “insulin resistance, obesity and inflammation, all of which are fuelled by carbohydrates, leading to chronic disease.”
A keto diet coupled with exercise is an effective way to diminish weight, inflammation and reduce insulin resistance, he says.

Meat is not inflammatory
Dr. Ken Berry explains how pre-conception's ignore actual scientific finding in randomized-controlled studies that indicate no inflammatory markers as the result of eating red meat. He quotes the authors of one such study stating in the conclusion that they were surprised by the study's findings because they believed that "of course" red meat is inflammatory.
It's sad to see two medical figures dressed in medical garb spout nonsense, but it wasn't all that long ago when people actually believed that egg yolks were bad for you because of all the saturated fat and cholesterol.
As Dr. Ken Berry explains, such beliefs defy logic. Humans have been eating meat back since we were a branch species of chimps, millions of years ago. When foods caused problems like inflammation, humans fermented, soaked or sprouted the food in order reduce or eliminate the food's inflammatory effects. The fact that humans never fermented meat the way humans fermented cabbage, soy, cow's & goat's milk, and various legumes, or soaked wheat & corn and various vegetables in brine is logical proof that meat is not inflammatory -- otherwise humans would have treated the food in some way to reduce or eliminate the inflammatory response.
You can't live on raw vegetables unless you cook them or ferment them, and then you will still also develop nutrient deficiencies. None of the nutrients in corn are bio-available unless you soak the corn in a lye solution, which is what native americans did. Modern corn is also genetically modified to produce it's own pesticide and is covered in glyphosate. You need to soak spinach in brine and then squeeze out the water, otherwise the spinach is loaded with oxalates - which will cause a bitter taste. Same with Eggplant. Nightshades like Tomatoes and bell peppers need to be de-seeded and cooked to the point of removing the skins to mitigate the inflammatory effects. Mushrooms and onions need to be cooked or the cell walls (chetin in mushrooms) will not get broken, rendering a large amount of the nutrients not bio-available.
You can however live on salami, eggs, bacon, cheese, sardines, sauerkraut, cooked cabbage, cooked carrots and butter without any concern for a single nutrient deficiency.

I just realized that this pathetic attempt at a blog ... has actually been on the internet for 20 years. I never realized that my early thirties excursion into teaching myself how to code a blog and then set that code up on a server would ever last into my mid-fifties. But here we are.
Sometimes I wonder what will happen after my time in this current realm expires. Will it be a long period of 8 years before my debit card exhausts the last funds in the bank account that lives beyond my own personal due date. Will my current druthers and scribbles ever be seen or read by persons who live past the mid-century date of 2050? Who will write the history books in 2075?
These are my current thoughts.

Time is not money or vice versa
Perhaps you've heard of the expression "Time is Money". Perhaps you've actually heard someone utter this innocuous aphorism, as if stating some universal truth.
Time is just time and has nothing to do with money. Money is just money and has nothing to do with time. These two ideas or ideological constructs, time and money, have a propinquity with one another within the social construct of human existence, but, in fact they are actually two separate ideations. Money is not time, and, time is not money.
Money is something that is used to account for the social interaction inherent within a human society such that the exchange of human goods and services can be done without resort to vigilantism or other destabilizing internecine social forces. Humans agree upon a medium of exchange along with a certain amount of public regulation in order to get the larger goal of socio-economic stability.
Time is something through which humans live. Time is experiential. When someone says money is time, that person is really talking about money and is completely ignoring time. There is no money inherent to time otherwise dictators and plutocrats would have no power. At the extreme, such people use or co-opt your time and then tell you that's how you get money.
All of us need to spend some of our time for the larger whole of the social order, but that is not necessarily related to money.
Because time is not money. Only money can be money. Time is just time.

Facetious is the only word in the English language that has all of the 5 vowels - aeiou - in order.
Which means Facetiously is the only word that has all of the 6 vowels - aeiouy - in order.
No silly, I'm not being facetious when I say this. :-)

Centrist politician bullshit
Crooked Timber is a great source for the straight dope, explaining reality in no-holds-barred words. Read further if you wish to understand.
The media conglomerates cart out these mealy mouth presumptive mouth-pieces because the oligarchical owners want to hear what mouth-pieces want to say in order to assuage their predilections about themselves and what a social construction looks like.
It's convenient, for instance, for the wealthy to believe that they "earned" their wealth and are thus more deserving of privileges, whether or not the underlying assumptions of "deserving" are actually ... true.

Jon Stewart on the American Tax system
Simply put, we pay taxes and the government gives the money to private for-profit firms to provide goods and services who then often funnel that money through sub-contractors that also sometimes then ask the citizens to pay "service fees" or "deductibles". The end result enriches the middlemen corporations at the expense of shoddy services.
