1. Good News

Item 1. One Way to Solve Fracking’s Dirty Problem

http://www.technologyreview.com/news/519416/one-way-to-solve-frackings-dirty-problem/?utm_campaign=newsletters&utm_source=newsletter-daily-all&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20130925

This assumes that the goal of fracking isn't to destroy water reserves in the first place. That assumption is hugely challenged by the fact that the Bakken frackers are burning a third of all gas extracted.

Item 2. A Lesser Theft.

While the Unaffordable Care Act is illegal on several counts and morally reprehensible, this Crime by CONgress did come with a sort of victim mercy clause. You're still going to be robbed, but if you choose not to purchase "raw deal" medical insurance you get taxed (fined) a far smaller amount than the "tax" you pay if you buy the worthless insurance.

For many people, medical insurance is simply not affordable now that the UCA has jacked up their rates and lowered their coverage. What good does it do to pay $200 a month just to get a $10,000 deductible and a huge list of items excluded from coverage? You're financially devastated, even with the insurance. So why bother buying it?

Our Supreme Dictator and his criminal cohorts have provided us with a less painful (for most folks) option. Just don't buy the expensive, useless insurance and you pay a $95 fine (more, if you have income beyond a certain threshold). This inDUHvidual Mandate provision is mild at first, probably to avoid an armed rebellion.

In line with the classic frog in gradually heating water strategy, it will get progressively more punitive. However, it is good news for at least 2014. Maybe by then, this illegal Act will be repealed and maybe Obama himself will be serving multiple life sentences in Leavenworth. And maybe pigs will fly, too.

Anyhow, for more information on the "Pickpocket Lite" feature, see:

Item 3. Starve the Tumor.

Even better news is the Unaffordable Care Act can simply be defunded by our misrepresentatives in the House:

Whether it is or not depends upon how many of our misrepresentatives are on the payrolls of Big Pharma, Big Oil, Big Agra, Big Banksters (who control the large medical groups--look it up, most of these are run by financial folks not by medical folks), and others who benefit from the UCA. Those misrepresentatives who get minor payola might be swung toward behaving in a morally acceptable way. Contact yours and demand defunding!

3. Brainpower tip

Beware the artificial construct.

An artificial construct is a sort of a big, empty mental shell that gets inserted into discussion, analysis, and culture. It displaces thinking, and it often causes people to see the construct instead of what's really there.

An example of an artificial construct is "race." This concept is based on fiction, and if you look at the origins of the modern three major "races" system you will see it's not just fictitious but also capricious.

That big, empty mental shell becomes a mental cage if it gets a permanent place in your mind. And over time, it shrinks and as it does this it squeezes out your brainpower the squeezing a sponge causes it to lose water.

Next, let's use an example that is similar to "race" to show how an artificial construct intellectually disables the person who allows it to replace observation and thinking.

In this example, you will note some parallels to a particular demographic and to a famous criminal who is using "race" as a sort of shield, by falsely claiming a particular demographic label applies to him though it does not. People who want to be identified by that label instead of being identified for who they are and what they've accomplished are  absolutely blind to this criminal's complete lack of character and to his many crimes and misdeeds.

In this example, let's suppose you are of Italian descent and your name is Meli.

Suppose your family moved to the USA from Italy 8 generations ago. Nobody has visited the home country in all that time. Nor do they know or care about its history, language, or culture. So they are Italian only by dint of where some ancestors lived for some time.

Now somebody named Palermo is running for mayor; his mother was Chinese and she had an affair while on a trip to Sicily thus the Italian surname. She reared him in Mexico and he swam across the Rio Grande one night as a kid. Like you, he doesn't care a bit about Italy but he cares even less that your great grandfather labored in the coal mines because none of his ancestors did any such thing.

You know nothing about Palermo, but he claims he is "one of you" and you should vote for him. Not only that, if he does anything wrong you should ignore that because you'd be a racist if you said anything. This rule applies no matter how harmful, outrageous, or illegal his behavior is.

This connection with Palermo is thin, indeed. It's not based on anything that matters or anything of any substance. You find other folks with Italian surnames, and rather than think about Palermo's record or qualifications, they focus on his surname and on the artificial concept that he's an "Italian-American" or whatever other label he tosses about.

Any thinking person will judge another person by his character and his deeds. I think that is really what defines a person. The weak attributes of these constructs tell us NOTHING about an individual. They do, however, greatly mislead us to the point we can say people go into BRAIN OFF mode when they use these constructs.

4. Finance tip

Here's something from a group that tracks how your hard-earned federal tax dollars are being wasted, stolen, abused, etc. They are your only real advocate to the spenders/stealers in Washington, District of Corruption: http://www.ntu.org

5. Security tip

Dumpster diving (going through someone's garbage) is a time-honored method of getting information about people. Police and private detective have solved many a case, using information gleaned this way.

But terrorists, burglars, and various other people who can threaten your security also go through those garbage containers looking for something to use against you.

The terrorists may be the worst threat, especially the terrorists who are members of the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths. They can piece together a partial view of your finances and then, going on that misleading information obtain a court order forcing your bank to surrender all funds in all of your accounts.

Keep in mind that the marsupial magistrates (kangaroo court judges) who pretend to provide judicial oversight of these terrorists simply don't.

Let's say you tear up a bunch of junk mail, including come-ons that you have won some big prize, you have up to $150,000 in new credit available, etc. The terrorists will put the pieces together, and then latch onto this bit of info as a flimsy excuse to rob you. And you are powerless to stop them or to recover what they stole. They'll build a case that you're hiding $150,000 and you "owe taxes" on it. Then the "fun" begins.

Other sorts of criminals are typically more discerning. They don't have the power of (what pretends to be) the government backing up their theft. They need to verify that a target is worth hitting. They try to form a picture of what you probably have that they can take. Then, because they can't get a court order to do their stealing for them, they have to physically take it from you or con you into giving it to them.

To protect yourself, shred:

  • Any documents that have any financial information on them. This includes paper utility statements, invoices, renewal forms, bank statements, grocery receipts, or anything else that might give a clue as to what you spend, save, or earn.
  • Anything that has personal information about you. This includes your name, phone number, e-mail address, or physical address. Also photos, old licenses, etc.
  • Anything that has information about people you know. This includes birthday cards, letters, invitations, photos, etc.--and the envelopes they came in
  • Any business documentation.

And remove any clues about any prescription medications, including prescription forms and the label on the bottle.

In short, make any paper trash useless for finding out much about you. Of course, it's still possible to find out much about you by counting dental floss strings, looking at food remains (e.g., chicken bones if you eat chicken and I advise that you don't) or food containers, condoms, tampons, etc. But the really valuable stuff (in most cases) is what's on printed on paper. Make it hard for the bad guys to get any information that way.

With paper recycling so common these days, the job of spying on people via their paper trash has become easy and clean. Note that when you shred documents, the shredded paper doesn't go into the recycle. It goes in with the nastier stuff. Make sure to mix the paper shreds with this stuff, so if the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths wants to go through it they are going to spend a hundred times more hours finding something to use to hurt you.

 

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

I'm amazed that anyone actually eats hamburgers. To me, these are about as appetizing as the contents of a baby's diaper (and contain some of the same ingredients). When you understand what's in a hamburger, you might wonder why I rate them even that high.

From Howard:

Hamburger Chef Jamie Oliver Proves McDonald’s Burgers “Unfit for human consumption”

By David Warner

Hamburger chef Jamie Oliver has won his long-fought battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world – McDonalds. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise finally announced that it will change its recipe, and yet there was barely a peep about this in the mainstream, corporate media....

Read the article and find out why humans should not eat hamburgers. Keep in mind, this is the distilled version. Several documentaries provide disturbing graphic evidence and more nauseating detail.

At age 51.

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.

7. Factoid

Tourists visiting Iceland should know that tipping at a restaurant is considered an insult in that country. But keep in mind they have a different compensation scheme. Here in the USA, the wait staff's wages are below minimum wage and without decent tips they could actually be paying to wait on tables.

Why would they actually be paying? The Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths won't go after Chuck Rangel for his egregious tax cheating and income tax evasion but routinely drops a heavy hammer on waitresses.

The terrorists don't care what the actual tips are, they use their own unrealistic figures to determine what the tip "should" be and they tax accordingly. So undertipping at a restaurant does double damage. Do your part: tip 15% for adequate service, more for good service. And work to eliminate the world's most feared terrorist organization.

8. Thought for the Day

As noted previously, Will Rogers was brilliant. Here's another of his gems:

"Make crime pay. Become a lawyer."

Note, of course, that most lawyers are upstanding people who provide a valuable service. It's a few who give the rest a bad name. Of course, you really can't go after a bad lawyer. The various state Bar Associations will almost never discipline a shyster who is a dues-paying member. Lawyers who don't like lawyer jokes should work on reforming their profession.
