WHY ARE AMERICANS SO SICK AND OVERWEIGHT?

 

People are so sick in large part because they do not cook, healthy food from scratch any longer (look into the Weston A Price society https://www.westonaprice.org/)

 

It is close to impossible to buy healthy foods, or to find them at a restaurant. You have to take real foods as your starting point and spend an hour or two a day cooking.
That is unless you have the money to hire a cook. ūüôā

My Garmin Vivosmart HR+ says that I burn quite a few calories dancing around the kitchen for that hour. It’s good exercise and I often listen to podcasts or audio books while in the kitchen. I have also been know to stretch or practice martial arts forms while waiting on something to finish up.

Today was a “cook day”, with 4-5 hours in the kitchen.

 

This was dinner.

Everything homemade:

Right bowl: Asparagus soup with a dollop of homemade sour creme

Left bowel: Italian Sausage and kale soup (no Cathy I did not raise nor butcher this hog, I’ll leave that to you)

Plate: Almond bread and butter. Hand crafted crackers, topped with avocado and kale pesto. Kimchi. Roasted buttered pecans

There was more later, but I don’t want to write a tome here.

Two more lessons learned from the school of hard knocks:
1.) Get on a good nutritional supplement program, and that includes taking care of your gut. This is as important or more than all of the above. Our soil is depleted and you can not get everything you need from your food.

2.) Lastly put your body into nutritional ketosis (keep your insulin levels very low by diet)¬† You are likely to remain overweight if you don’t do this.

If Americans did this. this country would look like a different planet the change would be so noticeable

Spread the word. Eat like your great grandfather and great grandmother ate, and you will be a heck of a lot healthier! That prepackaged food is adulterated folks. If food is in a box, you should throw it in the trash.

WE HAVE A CRIMINAL GLOBALIST HEALTH MONOPOLY IN THE US – Not the free market…


Did you know that after working your entire life and being forced to pay into the government “insurance” pyramid scheme (i.e. Social security/Medicare), that hospitals are refusing to do surgery for those that can not come up with cash up front?

 
Many, if not most on Social Security have a hard time making ends meet to start with. They must pay property taxes before they buy healthy decent food, or take care of their dental needs. People on social security become shop lifters out of necessity. Yes it’s a fact people.
 
So here at the very last minute, the hospital just called me and told me that I MUST come up with more cash that I can possibly come up with, or no operation. One that FWIW is needed very badly as the condition is disabling.
 
This is not new to me. A few years back I lost most of my chewing teeth because I could not afford to go to the dentist. I had to pay my property tax, car insurance (mandated by the state) and there was not enough left to go to the vastly overpriced dental monopoly that is the only choice in the land of the free. The state “protected” me so well that I could not afford their protection racket. How does not being able to afford a vital health service like dentistry protect anyone?
 
We have no freedoms. Our leader are criminals. When the hell are people going to start speaking out? I, like HL Menchen have become a cynic….the root cause of this is that Americans are not too damn bright or moral.(that is Menchen summed up)
 
240 years ago, Dr Benjamin Rush, who was as well known and liked as George Washington, warned us of exactly what is happening to us today:
 

“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom.” ~Dr. Benjamin Rush

In closing, this is the¬† hospital that begged me to donate blood¬†(and I have several times this year) treats¬† it’s customers.¬† I think that my blood donations to this hospital, or any place is going to stop.¬† If they need blood they can go to bloody hell.¬† I suggest¬†that you too quit donating blood if the health care industry¬†is going to treat people this way.¬†

update: 12/15/17
My state psychopath, I mean representative, has me the tax payer pay for his phone, but he uses it to tell me that he does not take phone calls, and that you must fill out a form online. This from the criminals that have created this monopoly in the first place. I think TJ was right after all:

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
~Thomas Jefferson

 

 

 

Below is the link to an  article we recently posted about the possibilities of free market health care. As the founders and the Constitution demand:

The Myth of ‚ÄúUnaffordable‚ÄĚ Health Insurance Just Won‚Äôt Die ‚Äď Health insurance is expensive, true, but so were cars, calculators, and cellphones, once. The difference is functioning markets.

 

 
 

Amazon is a criminal enterprise, and Jeff Bezos is a thief that belongs in jail…

Yes you read that right, and my standard retort¬† to the question of “this is Amazon how may I help you?”¬† is now “If you can find Jeff Bezos please kick him in the balls”. That usually sets them back a bit, and then I continue to explain:

I am a very computer literate person, and avoided “intellectual property rights” like Amazon’s Kindle books for almost 15 years, because I knew what I would be getting into, so¬† against¬† my better judgement I made the Kindle plunge…..
.
The very fist week, I could not get my bought, and paid for property to download into the Windows 7,  Kindle reader, I spend 4 entire mornings with the incompetent Amazon support staff  that took 2 days to   tell me to turn off my VPN  because their   half baked app would not work with a VPN.  I spent 2 more days with tech support, and in the end Amazon stole over 6 hours of my time with no compensation, in my effect to use my own bought and paid for property.

Fast forward to last night… I was reading a very important book necessary for my vocation, last night when I decided to see what the process of loaning out a Kindle book looked like.¬† So for test purposes I “loaned” the book to my mother by sending her an email that she could either accept or refuse. ( I knew ahead of time she would NEVER accept this invitation and read this book.

What happened immediately was that I no longer had access to my book!
To give an analogy this would be like me calling you and agreeing to loan you my book if you wanted it. But before you could even answer, or accept, a thief by the name of Jeff Bezos sneaks into my house, and steals my personal property.  I am not allowed to read my own book, and you have not even decided whether you want to read it or not.   What boggles my mind is why the idiots at Amazon did not include a button that would take the loan back.   If someone does not take you  up on your loan that you are still denied the use  of your property by Jeff Bezos.  This is the very definition of theft.

Anyhow I spent an uncompensated  hour on the phone last night with tech support who manged to get the  book back on my laptop.
This morning I tried to open the book on my smartphone only to find it unavailable.   I just spend 2 hours and 5 phone calls to get this issue resolved.

I find Amazon’s actions to be those of a thief, and I am in the process of filing a complaint with the Missouri Attorney generals office (for all of the help that that are.)

Stay tuned to updates….

11/15/17 12:30 am – Just got my new phone turned on yesterday as replacing the screen on the old one cost as much as phone does.¬† I just tried to fire up the kindle app on the new phone, and read “MY” book, and guess what?¬† Yup… that low life criminal SOB Jeff Bezos has stolen my book, and my time again (something that you and I would go to jail for).¬† I can’t read my book now without spending a lot of time on the phone with Amazon tech support. This is how criminal these large corperations have become.¬† I would bet that this story continues…..they are not done screwing me. This is what I foresaw and¬† why I eschewed this technology for 15 years. and yes I still fantasize about kicking Jeff Bezos in the balls.

UPDATE:

If you do your due diligence you are likely to come to the conclusion like many have that Jeff Bezos is a globalist and thus the mortal enemy of anyone that believes in the principles that this country was founded upon.
His dealing with the NSA borders on treason IMHO. A capital offense….

Lets not forget the¬† criminal theft of both Animal Farm and Brave New World on readers tablets.¬† This was not IMHO an accident, but a clear message about the nefarious nature of these ebooks, and that Amazon, as part of the New World Order’s infrastructure, was going to take full advantage of it.

UPDATE 12/1/17:
Paid for a Kindle book. Twice in fact. It still has not shown up, so I can’t read it.
So in addition to the cost of the book, I am going to have to spend  $20 of my time tied up with tech support to get access to my own property.   Do you see a pattern here yet?

2nd UPDATE 12/1/17

This time Amazon, that seems to own all of the books that i paid for, is now not letting me read one of my cook books, saying that it is registered on too many devices.  Who knows how much time it is going to take to jump this latest hurtle put between me and my property?

FWIW I am still unable to read any of my books on my laptop using the Windows 7 application.  and that is after spending 4 full mornings with their tech support and getting no where.

Amazon preventing me from reading a book…. AGAIN

UPDATE 12/2/17:

The ebook I purchased last night has still not shown up and in addition  when I tried to open a book on my smartphone I found out that the obtuse, confusing,  interface to administer the licenses that Amazon has in the Web interface, deleted all of the books on my smartphone.  Then when I tried to open one of my books  I was greeted again with a license issue, that could only be addressed on the obtuse web interface where you again guess at what devices you are deleting books on.

UPDATE 12/16/17:

Two weeks into having a Fire 8, many of my books are still not even halfway downloaded. The device  has been on a fast WiFi network for the entire time.
I should sent both of my devices back,  but then I am stuck with a dozen books that I paid a pretty penny for with no way to comfortably read them, while on the go. Not that I can actually read them if they are not downloaded.
My desire to “kick Jeff Bezos in the balls” grows with each day of being urinated on by Amazon, and being told that “it’s raining”, that I am not being urinated on….

———-

I hope the above, which is only a small portion of the issues that I have had with “Kindle:” books,¬† gives you some insight at to why I think that Jeff Bezos needs kicked in the¬† balls.

Here are 2 pictures that document the above few paragraphs:

Amazon defaulting¬† ebook purchase to¬† a gift purchase, even thought 99% of the purchase are likely for the person themselves.¬† If I didn’t know any better, and didn’t know what an honest, integrity driven company that Amazon was, I might think that they did this on purpose to generate more income by being dishonest. Most people making this mistake would likley not get the refund as I did, because it is too much trouble.

On the web page where your devices are registered¬†¬†¬†I have 13 devices registered , with no way to really tell what is what, and I think Amazon likes it that way.¬† In addition it looks like Jeff Bezos limits you to reading your content on¬† only 2 devices A fact they try hard to obfuscate.¬† ¬†I happen to have 4 laptops, 2 of which I use regularly, 2 tablets, and an off the cell network smart phone that I use in the kitchen as a media server.¬† Amazon has created a real nightmare for many of it’s users.¬† I own the books BUT I can’t read them on my devices without getting to a PC and then deregistering them on devices that I often can not tell what they are, which then creates more down stream problems.¬† Today I had to spend another¬† 45 minutes on the phone to address the current issues. I also learned that Amazon is now not supporting their stand alone app on Windows 7. How can you read books when they stop support for the app that you want to use?¬† Like I said at the beginning, Amazon looks like¬† a criminal organization. It certainly does not treat it’s customers well at all, in respecting THEIR property rights.¬† Much of their actions are guided by their intellectual property rights concerns, but you do not solve them by stomping all over your customers property rights.¬† I have some very good ideas on how they could solve the issue but will keep them to myself, unless they are willing to pay me as a consultant. Amazon has stolen enough of my time already.

MFP’s sporadic blog – BOB in my living room!

Having this martial arts target in my living room has brought unexpected results:
A few times when catching him in the corner of my vision, I have reflexively reached for my gun. (This is likley due to me living alone.)

I actually just told “him: that he better watch out or he was going to get shot.¬†

You mileage may vary……
