3. Brainpower tip

"Hindsight is 20/20." You've probably heard this before, but did you know you can use it to your advantage to get that 20/20 in real time rather than after you have regrets?

In what passes for a culture, we are highly encouraged to react instead of respond. Now, now, now, with no time to think. So thinking doesn't happen, until afterwards. Then we feel stupid for what we said or did earlier.

What happens between that immediate reaction and the hindsight? A few things:

  • Information-gathering.
  • Sorting of the facts.
  • Analysis.
  • Calm assessment.

All of these are absent in a reaction. Typically, an event does require some immediate reaction. For example, your boss comes by your desk and tells you, "I want you to stop working on Project ABC." Then before you can say anything, your boss walks away. This was an important project, and now you're steamed. A few minutes later, your boss comes back down the aisle.

You could react by letting your boss have it, complaining that you don't feel appreciated, and then blaming your boss for some problem with the project. There, that felt good.

Or, you could react by saying, "That was rather abrupt. Can we talk about this?"

If you choose the second and your boss says, "Not right now" and walks off again, what does that say about you or your position? Actually, it says nothing.

Possibly:

Your boss isn't happy with your performance. Take a look at what you've done and see how likely that is to be the case.

ABC has changed the project requirements, not paid their bill, or in some other way caused your company to put a stop on the project.

XYZ just offered your company a big project, and based on your performance on ABC, your boss wants you to head that up.

By keeping your reaction minimal, you leave room for an intelligent, planned response. You can gather information, sort out the facts, analyze the data and the situation, weigh alternatives, and calmly assess what the best response should be.

During a reaction, your brain doesn't have time to fully work on the situation so you can easily end up looking stupid. But if you buy time to develop a response, then you can bring all of your brainpower to bear on the situation, problem,  or opportunity.

Rather than wish you'd had 20/20 hindsight available when you were dealing with a  situation, problem,  or opportunity, you can actually have it available when you are dealing with a  situation, problem,  or opportunity.

The key is to separate reaction from response as much as possible.

 

4. Finance tip

Obamanomics is working just as any informed individual would expect it to:

http://www.dailyjobcuts.com/

Disproven central planning economic models based on 19th century thinking have the effect they have always had. And it's really bad. Thus, Obama is not progressive. He is highly regressive. The theories upon which he's presumably basing his economic devastation have always defied logic and have always produced disastrous consequences. They were shed by intellectually honest people over a century ago.

Even if you've managed to keep your job, the fallout from this crime spree (e.g., the job losses resulting from it) do affect you. The ways are legion, because we live in a society rather than as islands. Didn't someone famous say, "No man is an island?"

How many of us let our misrepresentatives in CONgress know this is NOT "OK"? What does it take to goose someone into objecting to the looting and plundering, as well as the other illegal activity?

We need to move into the 20th century with economic policy. That would be a huge leap forward. Sure, you don't make these failed policies (you are too honest and/or too smart for that). But they do have an adverse effect on your financial health. For most Americans, nothing has more of an adverse effect than these failed policies.

Go to the Websites of your misrepresentative and two senators, and fill out the little form. Make a note that such tings as corn subsidies (actually, they are "RoundUp in the food supply" subsidies"), gross overspending on the military (an expeditionary force of the empire, not a defense force of the people), and foreign aid to countries that will hate us no matter what we do are not acceptable. Add your own pet peeve or two about where your tax dollars are being wasted. Then make a note to do this whole thing again in 5 weeks.

If enough people do this, perhaps we can at least take the edge off the stealing, fraud, waste, lawlessness, insanity, and general mayhem that ensue when CONgress starts dispensing OUR money.

There's a reason that members of CONgress become millionaires in only a few years, and it isn't from serving us. It is from robbing us. Tell them it's not OK.

5. Security tip

No peasant-class American is safe from the capricious predations of the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths. Each year, thousands of innocent American citizens people are rendered jobless, penniless, and homeless simply because so many employees of this organization are astonishingly lawless, vindictive, and unaccountable. As is the organization itself.

It doesn't matter if you did nothing wrong, as 4300 victims of Kevin Brown's Hoyt Fiasco found out.

If your name is Rangel or Geithner, of course you have no problems with these criminals (Geithner Song).

But regular, decent people are merely targets to the psychopaths in this rogue organization.

This organization serves no legitimate purpose. Its alleged tax collection activities are 100% redundant with other taxation mechanisms used by the states. If Congress taxed each of the 57 states (thank you for the update, President Obama, in my ignorance I thought there were only 50) by apportionment, the present alleged purpose of this organization could be handled by one old lady in Toledo working part-time from her home.

The single greatest improvement to your total personal security would be the outright elimination of this organized crime unit. Take a few minutes to Bing (or Google) some horror stories (there are plenty), then contact your (mis)legislators and ask what they are doing to end this insanity. Don't frame it as a tax question, frame it as a crime question.

Elizabeth Warren won the MA Senate race mostly on her claim of being a champion of regular people. Write to her and ask her to champion regular people by putting an end to the single largest security risk Americans face today. Each year, many Americans see that risk turn into tragedy. It could be you, if this is not stopped.

 

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

The lamestream media have grossly mischaracterized several recent murders by calling them "shoe violence." All of the criminals wore shoes, so it must be the shoes that did the murdering, right?

No, wait. They didn't say "shoe." In a list of some 30 recent multi-murders, none of the victims had a firearm. Thus, these are "gun violence." Some people mistake that ill-worded phrase to mean the killers all used guns, but the violence was accomplished by using various implements, and I think in addition to multiple stabbings in two cases these were bare-handed bludgeonings. The only commonality in relation to guns is none of the victims had one, which is why they ended up being victims.

One solution is to ensure all potential victims are armed and trained to use firearms. But with the violent criminal safety advocates in CONgress working against law-abiding citizens, a better solution is to solve for the causes of this violence.

Age 51.
Click for more detail.

All of the killers were on prescription psychotic drugs. But were those drugs the root cause?

No, they were an exacerbating factor.

The root cause of these killings is the neurological poisoning done by Monsanto. People who eat wheat, corn, and soy (or products made from them) are taking in prodigious amounts of a neurotoxin known as RoundUp. Destroy enough of the brain's neurons, and someone who is close to being pyschotic becomes pyschotic. Think of the classic mean drunk; in this case, the neurons are merely anesthetized. With Monsanto's product, they are permanently destroyed.

We have empirical evidence of RoundUp's brain-disabling effects.

And here's just one example. For many years, nobody knew why the bees were dying off. But now we know.

Traditional beekeepers take a portion of the honey and leave the rest for the bees who made it. Just as factory farms poison cattle and other animals with a corn diet instead of a grass diet, so do today's large-scale beekeepers. They remove way too much honey, then replace it with high fructose corn syrup. First of all, HFCS is an endocrine modifier, and it seriously jacks the bee bodies.

But all HFCS, even the HFCS in the soda that many people inexplicably drink, contains RoundUp. That's because nearly all corn today is Monsanto's "RoundUp Ready" GMO corn. Contrary to Monsanto's propaganda, RoundUp is persistent (verified by several independent labs in Europe). Once you spray it on a GMO plant, the animal who eats products made from that plant will consume RoundUp.

What's going on with the bees is their brains are MessedUp by the RoundUp. They can't navigate their way back home, and instead of bringing food vital to the hive they die. Alone and probably afraid. Those in the hive then die from starvation.

Just as the solution to the "healthcare" crisis is as simple as ending the corn subsidies (due to the vast number of diseases caused by the modern corn passed along as "food"), the simple solution to the violence epidemic is to ban RoundUp. Banning this ubiquitous neurotoxin would also save the bees, lower the rates of MS, slow down the spread of the stupidity epidemic, and have a host of other benefits.

 
It follows that Roundup is a key component of the govt's stupidity epidemic program, as it makes people stupid and govt leaders are well aware of this. That means an uphill battle in banning it, as making sure people are stupid is essential to the continuation of the gangsta govt. Anyone who thinks the stupidity epidemic is merely accidental has already been infected.

We might discuss how to get Roundup banned. I think it can happen, if enough pressure is put on Home Depot (and other sellers of this toxin) and on our misrepresentatives in CONgress. How many of those misfits/misreps are on the Monsanto payroll is hard to say. But that is a long-term battle with an uncertain outcome.

More importantly, what can you do NOW to protect yourself from this terrible toxin? To eliminate RoundUp from your diet and your environment, boycott wheat, corn, soy, and the other GMO crops. And watch those pet foods! Check the label on any kibble (dry pet food) you buy. If you see corn, just remember that today it's a synonym for "Neurotoxin and Endocrine Disruptor Formula."

Your personal boycott will hardly bring down Monsanto's evil empire. But at least your dollars won't go to support that corporation, and how you spend your dollars is the ONLY way you actually vote in the USA. And, of course, there is that nice benefit of not poisoning yourself and your family with this toxic waste.

Nothing prevents Monsanto from leaving the dark side and producing products that help, rather than harm. So it might also be good to write to individual board members of Monsanto and ask why the company can't produce something that isn't horrendously negative for living creatures. Their PCBs are found in penguins, for crying out loud. Haven't they done enough damage already?

 

At www.supplecity.com, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:

  • The best workouts are short and intense.
  • A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction than the typical American diet.
