News-cronyism-cc-565x492

Between the main stream media and Hollywood, Conservative values are constantly under attack.

The GOP debate last night called them out on their hypocrisy; which I would doubt many liberals even watched.

The government is “Of the people, by the people, and for the people.”

Progressives want government in every facet of your life, not theirs, just yours….

Conservative values are for limited government… Keep the country safe from all threats both domestic and foreign.   We don’t need you mucking with our McDonalds fries or Big Gulps!

When the MSM decries Hillary had a good week when she was exposed as the liar she is, you know that the Rachel Maddows of the world are just so biased, that they cannot be objective, therefore they are not journalist!

Journalism is finding the truth and telling the truth about it, whether it is against what you would like to see or happen or not.

Walter Cronkite was a Flaming Liberal, but you would not know it by his reporting of the facts. He was a journalist.

I would like to turn on my TV and watch the news without the Brian Williams of the world slanting the story to fit some White House agenda as they currently do….

Fox has the ratings that it does because they are for the most part “fair and balanced.”

I would exclude Hannity from that lineup, as he is entertainment, opinion related, with a biased version of the news.

The Winners last night were Cruz, Rubio and Chris Christie in that order (in my opinion.)

Donald Trump was just about a no show last night, as were the rest of the candidates.

For the record, I don’t believe that Trump knows what an H1B is.

Companies lobby to bring them over by the thousands to pollute the pool of workers keeping the price down that they have to pay for talent.

The talent is here…they just done want minimum wage for a job that is for skilled workers.

Any visit to a Walmart of hardware store you can find American people who are under employed because of H1B’s.

Our government is for sale to the highest bidder, and the American people don’t stand a chance as they are asleep!

Where greed is concerned, companies will find a way like outsourcing, shipping jobs overseas or taking their whole company to Mexico and beyond.

If you are in college now and looking to pick a major…pick something that requires English, knowledge of our mores, idioms and   possibly customer service centric, as “Peggy” still does not have it….

Tonight’s #cnndebate was a love fest, for the democrats..plane and simple.

The Lines were scripted…

Bernie Sanders is probably the single person up there that like Trump, is telling the truth.

Because he looks like he is crazy, and he talks like he has dementia he; will be ignored.

Tonight no tough questions were asked of the candidates…I was seriously waiting for the group hug.

The easy target was Clinton and Bernie defender her…”We don’t care about your e-mails”

Translated…We don’t care if you are morally and ethically challenged... We don’t care that you can lie about anything and can have the Supreme court redefine the definition of  “IS” …

We just want to know how much more free stuff you can get us from those awful rich people...you know, the same ones who make up the super pacs!

I was at the dentist the other day… The dental assistant, a college graduate was talking about art with me.  When I mentioned that all sorts of people are artist that you would never expect.  GW Bush is an artist…My distant cousin Winston Churchill was an artist…..

“Winston who? he asked?”

“You got to be kidding me…where did you go to school?”

“Dallas”

“You graduated from the school system in Dallas and you don’t know who Winston Churchill is?”

“No why was he somebody important?”

These are the idiots that vote for the likes of Clinton and Sanders… More free stuff!  Free education and the rich are going to pay their fair share… “F#$%K those rich guys…GIMMEE !

Its not the rich that pay assholes, it is the middle class, who does not own the lobbyists who pay; and continue to pay their way, your way, and yes..The Fat Cat Bankers who screw everybody way!.

Bernie is correct, the system is rigged and the GOP are the only ones that are saying something about it…

So, if you are one of those pathetic few who only vote D because you wait to decide until the last days of the election vote for Sanders...At least he is speaking the truthHe is certifiable…But he thinks he is doing the right thing and he is telling you the way that it is….   His counterpart by the way is Lindsey Graham… Both are out of touch with reality, but both are telling it like it is…

This country is going to be $20,000,000,000,000.00 in dept by the time this next election runs around because of the free stuff and social justice and folks…you who vote without the facts are responsible…..

It truly will be a brave new world, and drugs better be legal by then, and free, so at least you wont care that you are living under bridges…

Gun Control 

LITTLE GUN HISTORY…In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From

1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In1911, Turkey established gun control. From1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

—————————–

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from

1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

——————————

China established gun control in 1935. From

1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

——————————

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

—- ————-

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979,

300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people,unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

—————————–

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

——————————

You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are “subjects’.

During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun -control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win.

There is no possible victory in defense.

The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.

The final weapon is the brain.

All else is supplemental.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!

SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.

SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

IT’S A NO BRAINER!

DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I’m a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! History repeats itself when we ignore it or forget it.

Mental Health

So I have figured why there exist so much division in this country and probably the world and why we have the problems we are seeing reported on all too often.

When we grow up and play sports, two team leaders are randomly chosen.

Those two team leaders then pick teams from the remainder of the class.. Some pick sides because they like this person, or that or don’t like this person etc.

Where the boys are concerned, we then decide who is going to be the shirts or the skins, I liked the skins because I liked not wearing a shirt when playing sports but, your mileage may vary.

The game ensued and for the remainder of that day, or possible the week, the rivalry that existed and the winners generally taunted the losers, until there was a re-match.

My school was integrated and we had no bias between Blacks, Hispanics or any other ethnicity.  We were simply one team or another, and we all had a good time.

This was then elevated between different schools.

Each week there was a pep rally to spur on the team to victory against whatever school we were playing.

The signs posted in the school were slogans like “”Crush the insert name” or similar venue but, you get the point.  This was rather violent rhetoric for a sport.

In Football, there were injuries and some of that rhetoric I feel was carried out into the field, as there was constantly “un-sportsman like conduct.”

Here is the dichotomy between sports, and somehow making it personal.

In our PE class, most of us left our determination to defeat the other team, out on the field.  We either won or lost.  The winners got to brag for the day but they were hollow victories, as most of the class consisted of people who “had to take PE” but if it were up to them to decide, they would not.

The un-athletic kids were singled out and sometimes bullied by those that were more physical.

Sometime this was simply name calling but, often it was an easy mark for the less secure but more physically fit to elevate themselves; by pummeling the weaker kids.

The bullies were in fact, mentally challenged and made up for it by picking on, and in some cases physically injuring the weaker child, even though that weaker child may possess a superior intellect.  That intellect gets you nowhere when you are surrounded by several of your classmates, who happen to rally around the big kid, who needs to prove something to himself and prove for his physical prowess to keep the rest in line.

Not everyone is Heisman trophy material, and not everyone is suited to win a Nobel Prize for curing cancer!

Everyone has gifts and talents but,navigating our youth without becoming a psychopath or agoraphobic is key.

This week we had another mass shooting that represents a failure in our system.

While we can see that someone is physically fit, can hit a ball or run the bases, we cannot see what is going on in their heads.  We can’t see what is in their hearts and, encouraging them to “tell a teacher” if they are being bullied usually is a recipe for disaster, as the person being told on will enact revenge and; that revenge will be through his or her peers and it could be life threatening for the child being picked on.

In the animal kingdom, the weak or sickly are shunned from the pack and the predators take care of the problem.  The weak or defective become part of the circle of life.

Do we allow the weak or timid to become ostracized and bullied and take the attitude “save who you can?”

That is what we have been doing for the last 60 years that I can attest to.  Is it working?

Some of the physically weak go on to invent computers or control space craft.  Some discover a cure for diseases and some work out complex mathematical formula while not being able to move or even speak because of their infirmities.

Some of the physically weak carry a grudge, and one day when life has kicked them around as their self-esteem and lot in life is so bad, they figure out who is to blame for their lot in life “without looking into a mirror,” and they use an equalizer, a gun or other device.

The perpetrator was quoted by one of the victims. “I have been wanting to do that for a long time!”  This was after he killed a few folks, and started to kill some more. This was a ticking time bomb, much like the person who killed the news reporter and her cameraman.

It would be interesting to dig into this kids past.  Was he well thought of, could he play sports, was he a bully?

No Mr. President, we don’t have a gun problem in this country.  As much as you and the liberal left and those idiots in Hollywood want to make this a “gun problem” it is a people problem.

Some of us are simply “assholes” and we treat others badly and are not called on it.  We are not being held accountable for our actions and allowed to injure others for the shear enjoyment of watching them in anguish.  As we injure them, our “friends” egg us on, as they too are living vicariously through our actions, just like the Sunday couch potato quarterback who yells at the TV from his popcorn laden, beer stained lazy boy, at the players on the field or the referee for being blind or stupid!  Those actions to some; bring some meaning to their otherwise pathetic life.

We gather behind the team in some mob mentality, and if our team loses we may even destroy our own town in defiance of the bad calls of the referee, even though we were miles away sitting in some sports bar watching the game through a smoke filled room.

The common thread of most of these killers is they are left behind by the “system.”  “We saved the kids that we could.”

No, you failed.  Each and every life that goes through school needs to be watched for signs of either the bully or the bullied.  Neither are healthy mentally, and both should be watched and worked with so they don’t become the next in-mate, or the next mass murderer.

I also feel that Hollywood and the entertainment industry is culpable as people are desensitized to this kind of activity.

Mr. President, people are desensitized to this because it is on 250 cable channels, and if that is not enough they play realistic video games that are nothing more than training simulators for them to go and become efficient in killing, in wholesale fashion.  These kids that spend hours in a “closed door room” or their parent’s basement; playing these games must by their very nature, become mentally impaired! 

The NRA is not the problem, they are an easy target by the un-thinking idiots who want to “take action!”

Mental health is the problem, as only a sick person would commit such horrific crimes and I am amazed that this is not what we are talking about, and looking for ways to abate it.  Is this because it does not fit into an agenda?

Guns, the NRA and the 2cnd amendment are easy targets for the un-thinking among us.

Action Step!

Hire some mental health folks, place them in each and every school in this country.  Get them engaged in the process of looking for tomorrow’s mass-murderers or tomorrow inmates, and allow them to do what they do best! Bring personal accountability back into the schools.

Out of the box thinking on Guns

Out of the box thinking on Guns

Each and every time some loon goes on a rampage, or goes postal, we have activist calling for gun laws, getting the guns, etc.  It is in fact, predictable and not helpful.  This puts the focus on that which is not the problem.

The problems are that guns are making their way into the hands of people who clearly should not possess them.

This is happening basically by two methods, they are sold on the street, or theft.

Government has a terrible track record of telling the truth, much less being able to administer anything.

I believe that capitalism is the solution.

Build it and they will come.

I would propose that eBay, or some other entrepreneur, develop strategic relationships with gun dealers around the country.  Selling guns and gun stuff on eBay through responsible partners like gun dealers with a current FFL I think is the ticket.

This would provide a vehicle for those that collect, swap, sell, or trade, guns to do so in an environment that was  transparent, in that if a gun was used in a crime, we would be able to track it to who owned it last.  This would also provide a way for people to sell guns, and get top dollar, while keeping them out of the hands of loons.  The gun dealer would be the go between securing a valid back ground check of the new owner, before releasing the weapon to them.  The owner of the gun could keep it until they received a message that the new owner was cleared by the gun dealer at which time the gun dealer could secure payment for the gun and their services and get the gun shipped to them to give to the new owner.  They would get some amount of money from the sale of the weapon from eBay, or other business entity for their efforts.   For this program to work, these fees would have to be kept to a minimum.

The method of tracking could be done programmatically, and eBay or some similar capitalist, should be able to do this without government assistance, as this would be a huge money maker for them.

Theft:

Theft is a problem and there is a solution.

Create a provision in the tax code for anyone who chooses to purchase gun safes, or gun locking paraphernalia, be able to deduct that expense from their taxes.

Opponents of this idea would feel that any transparency would allow government oversight that intrusion of their rights which might be infringed upon sometime down the road.

The 2cnd Amendment must be held sacrosanct, and the government should “defend the constitution” instead of looking for ways to do an end run around it!  The Chicago way will not stand.

Selling this plan to the people will require that the government recognize and respect the 2cnd amendment, and stop fighting the people on this.  The government is here to serve the people, and in this, there is no room for equivocation!

There are simply too many instances in history where the guns were taken away and the government went nuts.  This will not happen in this country, ever!

This administration is responsible for increased gun sales, and ammunition sales, because of the consistent anti-gun, anti 2cnd amendment rhetoric.

While mental health is truly the target, there is a solution to keeping guns off the street and out of the hands of those who should not have them.  Is it a perfect plan?  No, criminals will still get guns.

Will it keep guns out of the hands of some who should not have them, yes.

The government must, as part of this “healthcare” plan provide more mental health awareness programs, and seriously look into these simulators of death called entertainment via violent video games.  When young people play these extreme games for hours on end every day, it has to have an effect on their mind.

Each and every time someone goes postal, we need to learn all we can from them; and see if we can come up with a root cause analysis of the problem.

Were they on drugs, were they co-opted by some fringe group, etc.…

We must be smarter about this and calling for stricter gun laws each and every time is not the solution.  Working with the NRA, instead of against them, would go much farther than butting heads.

If this makes sense to you, pass it around.  If you have idea lets talk about it.  There seems to be little way to get the attention of those that can effect change in a positive way.  This is an out of the box approach to the problem, and it should be considered by those who are smarter than I am.

Here we go again!

Here we go again!

First and foremost, my heart goes out to the folks in Oregon.  This is another terrible tragedy which is the exact reason I started this blog years ago.  Trying to make sense of out of the senseless!

Listening to the president speak about this latest tragedy; I get why there is such division in the country.

“Where we have the strictest gun laws, we have the lowest gun related crimes and those are the facts! ” Obama today October 1 630pm EST.

This statement is blatantly and patently incorrect…False….It is indeed a prevarication, a lie!

We in fact have the highest murder rates, and gun related crimes, in the places we have the strictest gun laws, Chicago his home town is the primary example; and DC is the next!

C’mon Mr. President!  That school was a gun free zone!

Say something comforting for those people who lost loved ones, instead of standing on a soap box lying to the people.

The problem with these lies are simply this.  A lot of people don’t know the truth, and it is because the liberal media does not report on that which this administration does not want reported on.  So they listen to the lies and shake their heads in an up and down movement in agreement.  Then we have celebrities “who have body guards” saying things like “we don’t really need that 2cnd amendment, we ought to give that up!”   Get real Bevis!  Regular people can’t afford body guards!

They too are basing their “opinions on lies!”

We are importing into this country thousands of refugees from places that are rife with terrorists and we are not vetting them, as we can’t!  We have a flood of illegal aliens coming over our borders from other countries other than Mexico.  We know from what they leave behind they are not great people.

Japan never invaded this country because of one simple reason, they knew that every farmer in this country had a gun.  They weren’t worried about the military, they were worried about the citizen.  With good cause I might add.

Cops don’t prevent crime, they write it up, and investigate it.  Yes Mr. President; if that school had been conceal carry, there is a good change the loss of life would have been much less than it was.  Soft targets like gun free zones are easy pickings for loons.  You would think that we would have learned that by now!

Mental health is where we should be investing our resources and I would look seriously into the people who are loaners, and who happen to play violent video games several hours a day!

This guy was on social media yesterday talking about his actions today! You would think someone would have mentioned it to the cops.

Bad things happen!  Until you focus on the real problem, nothing will change.

Focus on mental health.  And for the record; it makes sense for a background check for anyone buying a gun whether it be from Walmart, or some guy on the street that needs some quick cash.  Put the mechanism in place where Joe the plumber can easily sell his gun to Sparky the electrician.  Don’t base this law on lies, base it on common sense!  Or are lies part of the “process?”

State of the Union 2015

State of the Union 2015

Should America get involved in stopping the wholesale murder of Christians?

Any person with any kind of morality would give the immediate knee jerk reaction of, Hell Yes!

As Wilford Brimley might say, “It’s the right thing to do!”

brimley-197x300

In this day and age we don’t do anything.  We are paralyzed by politics.

06n25churchill-382089

If Winston Churchill had been this worried about political blowback, we all might very well be speaking German!

There is this problem that some face in management called “analysis to paralysis.”

Today with a 24 hour news cycle, we have taken that to all new levels!

We have organizations who do polls of everything.

62a57dfe5

Frank Luntz, who is an interesting guy, makes his livelihood by putting together groups of people to gauge their emotional state, at different snapshots in time of events like speeches or debates.

There are several different pollsters and they all solicit an opinion from a low percentage of actual people who will take the time to take a poll.  That in and of itself is a problem, in that it biases the results.

Polls are flawed to begin with, in that the accuracy is somewhere below 10%, depending upon the type of poll and the questions ask.

Robotic polls are the least accurate and even some of the most prestigious or respected pollsters, depending upon their particular bias, are flawed. (Aka Fox news Vs MSNBC)

Politicians today are always in re-election mode so they are in fact paralyzed.   If there is a bill on the floor and some senator does not want to cast a vote one way or the other, he simply votes present or is a no show.  Currently, Planned Parent Hood funding was on the floor and one of the presidential candidates was in fact a no show.  This was an important bill and for his party, he should have been there.  He however represents the Millennials, and a good amount of them are liberal leaning and do not distinguish the difference between the murder of a baby, and “women’s health.”

287874

 “You’ve got to stand for something, or you will fall for anything!”   

We send these folks to Washington to represent us.

Obama, when he was senator voted present 130 times, not allowing his political aspirations to get tarnished with anything.   The people of Chicago sent him there to represent them, and he voted present.  One could infer from his votes that the people of Chicago, simply don’t care about anything!

wheres_obama

Today on the stage of the world’s Arena, we have a president who is still voting present, and leading from the rear.

Is it politically safe to stop the wholesale slaughter of Christians in the Middle East?

No, because there are some who don’t like Christians, who happen to vote and they might vote Democrat unless of course you do anything that they don’t like. Is it the right thing to do?  Hell Yes!

We watch them on the computer, and TV, and what have you, being butchered in the most heinous of ways, and there is nothing but the sounds of Crickets coming from Washington.

Putin_Obama_Pen_Phone_Tanks

Today we have the Russian Dictator Putin “standing for something.”  I am not certain what he is doing and if he is truly targeting the right folks, time will tell.  The US has always taken the lead in such things and yet, we are dismantling our military.

“The purpose of our government is to Defend and protect the people of this country and this country from all threats domestic and foreign.”

This president has cut military spending and in fact allowed our military men and women to fight with antique equipment.

  • Air Force tactical aircraft: over 20 years old;
  • Navy and Marine Corps tactical aircraft: over 15 years old;
  • Army M-113 armored personnel carriers: 27 years old;
  • Bradley fighting vehicles: 17 years old;
  • CH-47 Chinook helicopters: nearly 20 years old;
  • UH-1 Huey helicopters: 35 years old;
  • Ticonderoga-class cruisers: nearly 20 years old;
  • P-3C Orion long-range aircraft: almost 25 years old;
  • B-1 Lancer bomber: over 20 years old;
  • C-5A Galaxy transport aircraft: 40 years old; and
  • KC-135 tankers: 44 years old.

Over 65% of this president’s budget goes to ….wait for it….”Entitlements” and they are really not entitlements because for it to be an entitlement, you must have done something to be entitled to it!

We are talking about food stamps, Obama phones, Obama Care, and to quote one of the people in line for her share of the free stuff, “his stash!”  These are not simply for American poor folks, these are for anyone that can cross the border in any way shape of form!

The money he is giving away is not his to give, in fact he is appropriating it from places like the military, and your great grandchildren’s future piggy bank!

Which candidate will save us from ourselves?

The outsiders are leading the pack for the republicans and the Socialist is leading the pack “basically” for the DNC.

He wants the government to pay for everything!  $20 Trillion is debt is nothing to this man.
He wants the government to pay for everything! $20 Trillion of debt is nothing to this man. We can simply print some more…lots of ink and paper…

How you ask?  They are telling the truth, the things that you were afraid to even think about, as they need to wake you up.  Even Bernie Sanders is talking trash about the Washington Elite or as one candidate calls them “The Washington Cartel.”

We need a candidate that will shake things up, and focus on what the government is supposed to be doing. 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

  • “Establish Justice:” Appoint or elect judges who interpret, not create the law.
  • “Insure domestic Tranquility:” Unite instead of divide us by race, religion or sex or by any other means. We are Americans, and we need to bind ourselves together by that.
  • “Provide for the common defense:” Have a military that is so strong, that no one will dare to test it.

We are not doing that, and these last 7 years have proved that beyond any shadow of doubt.

Whoever inherits this mess, will indeed have to be the best of the best.  We will need to start with the basics and go forward.  This will take a concerted effort from everyone to put this country back up straight; we need to prepare for that.

At the rate this administration is pissing money away, we will most likely be $20,000,000,000.000.00 in debt by 2017.  That is if the rate does not change one way or another.

All of these candidates except one are bought and paid for by someone, or a group of someone’s.

  • That is why the Keystone pipeline has never happened.
  • That is why 20 odd percent of our Uranium was sold to Russia in a backroom deal made by Hillary.

Do you want more of the same or would you like a change?

  • Campaign reform and total transparency needs to top any agenda for this next administration.
  • Term limits need to also top any list of to-do’s as we need to get the good old boys out of Washington.
  • As one man put it, we need to dismantle the Washington Cartel.
  • You dismantle them by holding them accountable.
  • You dismantle them by transparency of their funding and you force them to create term limits for themselves.
  • They need to live by the same laws that we live by, and by the same social security, and the same health care.

In short, you remove the incentives to be corrupt.  If you go to Washington to serve, you go there to serve, not to serve yourself!

Wisdom from Asia

Wisdom from Asia

Love this Asian Doctor!

Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?

A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it… Don’t waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Fruit very good. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Grain good too. Bottom up!
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?

A: Can’t think of one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain…good!
Q: Aren’t fried foods bad for you?

A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.
Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?

A: Hey! ‘Round’ is shape!
Well… I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
And remember:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways – Chardonnay in one hand – chocolate in the other – body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO-HOO, what a ride!!”
AND……
For those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Brits.
CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
