Government on Nutrition: Often Wrong, Seldom in Doubt

*** begin quote ***

Readers of this space will be familiar with the pattern. Previous advice from Washington about the supposed hazards of eggs and other cholesterol-laden foods, the advantages of replacing butter and other animal fats with trans fats, and the gains to be made from switching from regular to diet soda, have all had to be re-evaluated and sometimes reversed in later years. And yet some in the public health establishment — including a few who are quoted in today’s Post article— still aspire to use the power of government to coerce changes in citizens’ diet. They seem to imagine that with people like themselves in charge, next time will be different.

*** end quote ***

I can’t imagine any more UNRELIABLE source of dikw (i.e., data, information, knowledge, wisdom) than the Gooferment.

Even when they are not deliberately LYING to us, they are often just wrong.

Look at any research and find out who’s paying or who’s profiting (i.e., Cui Bono) and that will determine the results.

That, and now days, unless there’s a profit or patent or copyright or some other angle, you’ll never hear about it.

There’s an internet meme about Salk not patenting the polio vaccine because he want to cure it globally.

Today, everyone would be laughing at him.

The whole definition of “non-profit” is a joke. The Salvation Army is a non-profit; the NFL is not.

Time to make the doughnuts and take back our country.


Take the money away from them and see what happens.

POLITICAL: Jindal’s plan eliminates the corporate tax

*** begin quote ***

GOP presidential candidate Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal aims to eliminate the corporate tax, an issue he addressed as he unveiled his tax plan Wednesday afternoon on a call with reporters where Jindal argued his plan simplifies tax code.

Jindal’s tax plan only has three tax brackets – two percent, 10 percent and 25 percent.

“Most Americans will be in the 10 percent bracket,” he told reporters. He went on to explain that a couple making $150,000 is now in the 25 percent tax bracket, but under his plan would drop to the 10 percent bracket.

According to Jindal’s plan, individuals making less than $10,000 will be in the two percent bracket, those making more than $10,000 but less than $90,000 will be in the 10 percent bracket, and everyone else will be in the 25 percent bracket.

Those who are married have a slight shift in their brackets: Couples making under $20,000 a year will be in the two percent bracket, where as couples making between $20,001 and $180,000 will be in the 10 percent bracket. Lastly, couples making more than $180,000 will pay 25 percent in taxes.

Jindal said his plan “eliminates the estate tax – death tax, the marriage penalty and the gift tax, and the alternative minimum tax.”

“I think my plan is best,” he touted, referencing that other GOP candidates have revealed their tax plans.

He said his plan has three key differences from fellow Republican candidates.

“Most Republican plans brag about the fact that they allow as many as half of all Americans pay zero federal taxes. Jeb and Trump both have said that. I think that’s a mistake,” Jindal said. “I think everybody should pay at least something.”

“We’ve got to this point where too many Americans believe money just grows on trees in Washington,” he said.

We’re only asking two percent from the bottom bracket. I think that may be the most important two percent in the whole plan. It reestablishes the idea that in America everybody is expected to help row the boat. Some people may have a bigger ore, some may have a smaller ore, but you keep your ore in the water along with everybody else.

The second way Jindal’s plan differs from other Republicans is that it eliminates the corporate tax in America.

The U.S. has the highest corporate tax rate than any other developed countries. Jindal says this move will create jobs and end wealth incentives for companies investing outside this country.

“We need to be willing to be bold,” he said of eliminating the corporate tax rate.

We’ve done various analyses. We show that for example in a 10 year period the GDP would grow 14.4 percent on top of the current base growth projection rate with just my tax changes. We show that nearly six million jobs would be added to the economy, wages would grow by 8. 7 percent – just as an example of the positive outcomes from changing our taxes.

Jindal also says his plan is different because it “reduces the amount of money the federal government is going to be able to spend.”

Finally someone nails the corporate tax.

It’s stupid.

The product of Liberal Left non-economic thinking is just dumb.

“Corporations are merely tax collectors; not taxpayers. They merely pass their costs along.” Lawrence Alan “Larry” Kudlow is an American economist, television personality, and newspaper columnist. August 26, 2014 0830 on WMAL Mornings on the Mall Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor

It’s one of the ways the Gooferment hides the true costs.

A business has only two choices — pass along its costs of which taxes is a big one OR go out of business.

GUNS: Liberalism kills

Guns Don’t Kill People, Liberalism Does
By Trevor Thomas

*** begin quote ***

President Obama wants us to politicize gun deaths in America. I decided to take him up on his invitation.

I hope that no one is surprised that Obama took this opportunity again to attack guns, the gun industry, and those of us who are fans of the Second Amendment. This is what a community organizing career politician does. For liberals like Obama, virtually everything is political, or must be made so. Because political problems require political solutions, and thus, when something is politicized, those in favor of empowering and growing government get to do what they do best: give speeches, call for legislation, and attempt to stir up the electorate in their favor.

Nearly 75 people reportedly overdose on laced heroin in 3-day span in Chicago
Published October 04,

*** begin quote ***

Nearly 75 people reportedly overdosed on dangerous narcotics, possibly heroin laced with painkiller fentanyl, in Chicago over a three-day span, according to city health and fire officials.

The Chicago Tribune, citing hospital officials, reported by Friday afternoon at least 14 people were rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago to be treated for possible heroin overdoses, and some patients still had needles in their arms.

*** and ***

”We suspect what is happening is the same thing that happened in 2006 when people were getting heroin that was cut with fentanyl, which is a very strong narcotic,” she told the newspaper. “That’s what we think is happening.”

The Drug Enforcement Administration and Chicago police are teaming up to try and find the source of the batches.

*** and ***

The last major outbreak of fentanyl-related deaths took place between 2005 and 2007. The outbreak killed more than 1,000 people across the country and dozens specifically in Chicago.

Doesn’t anyone remember their history lessons?

OK, anyone remember Robert Stack playing Elliott Ness in the Untouchables? Where during Prohibition, he had to track down a moonshiner who was making contaminated bathtub gin. That gin was causing folks to die or go blind!

Can’t you see the similarity here?


Now imagine an American where drugs were “legal”. Let’s have a mental experiment.  The addiction rate would be at a historical norm — since back in the days when that Chinese emporer study the problem and couldn’t fix it then by killing addicts — of 10%. Walmart, Walgreens, RiteAid, and every drugstore would be selling “drugs”. Clean, pure, of know quantity and quality. And, of course, they would offer treatment alternatives. 

Also, since it would no longer be illegal or “dangerous”, children would find some other alternative to rebel. Dye their hair, pierce their bodies, and listing to bad music — oh wait they’ve done that through the decades already. (But it doesn’t kill them!)

Of course, currently “illegal” drugs would be cheap, so one could have a “habit” and hold down a job — which was common in late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Now let’s consider the poor Drug Lords, Cartels, and drug dealing gangs. Guess they’ll have to find other employment since Walmart can drive the profit out of anything.

And, all the money that the USA spends on prisons, courts, cops, DEA, FDA, BATF, etc. etc. can be redirected to treatment.

Wow, what different country this would be.

How many people would still be alive?

How many people would be better off?

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” — attributed to Einstein

Time to end the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”!

TINFOILHAT: Benedict XVI was blackmailed?

Sunday, October 4, 2015

“There was a Blackmail Come From Who Knows Where, Through SWIFT, Exercised on Benedict XVI.”
September 30, 2015

*** begin quote ***

“This explains and justifies the unprecedented resignation of Ratzinger, that many of us have been able to exchange for an act of cowardice; the Church was treated as a state ‘terrorist’, but worse — because note that the dozen banks falling into the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria ‘are not excluded from SWIFT’ and continue to be able to make international transactions — and the Vatican finances could no longer pay the nunciature, to convey transport missions — in fact, the same ATM of Vatican City had been blocked.

*** end quote ***

Wow, that would explain an UNPRECEDENTED action.

Any other explanation?

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Can’t predict the storm a few days in advance

And, yet they can’t predict the storm a few days in advance, but they can predict climate decades from now?

You have to be kidding me!

And, of course, the answer is more taxes and Gooferment power!


“Fool me twice, shame on me.”

Come back when you have a better lie.
