1. Good News

Item 1

You can opt out of the Unaffordable Care Act without taxes, penalties, IRS attacks, and other punishment. You just have to declare yourself Amish, Muslim, Christian Scientist, and/or American Indian. Read here for more:

http://www.examiner.com/article/if-you-are-muslim-you-can-opt-out-of-the-obamacare-health-care-reform-laws-with-no-penalties

I'm legally changing my name to Joshua Hussein Baker-Eddy Running Water. Boy, is the next census going to be messed up! The bureaucrats will wonder where the heck did all those new Indians and Amish come from!

Item 2

The criminal elite have been scheming and plotting to control the supply of fresh water, and consequently there are water shortages all over the planet with more predicted in the near future.

These criminals spend their days scheming and plotting rather than innovating. But among the peasant class, innovators arise all the time. And now there's an innovation that hugely helps us win the water shortage games: http://www.technologyreview.com/view/531066/emtech-a-hybrid-solution-for-cheap-desalination

In the USA, the most notable looming shortage is for those living in the People's Republic of California along with those living in the states (north AND south of the Mexican border) from which the PRC is stealing water. But other, more severe shortages are looming. This innovation greatly interferes with the "control their water, control them" scheme.

Item 3

You can personally help defeat the criminal elites in their water control schemes. Yes, you can be part of the solution and that's very good news.

Do your research on ways to conserve water. Most Americans can cut their water usage in half, easily. For example, you can replace one of those "low flush" (meaning it takes six flushes of 1.8 gallons instead of one flush of 3 gallons) toilets with a toilet designed for human adults. You can replace shower heads with low flow models; but not a simple flow restrictor, there is a difference. A huge water saver is to invest in a front-loading washing machine. I have an LG with total utility cost (water and electricity) of $9 per year.

Look into water recapture methods; my neighbor is a civil engineer and he's figuring out a rainwater capture scheme that will work for his home. I'll use his results to do my own. But you don't need to be an engineer to develop these things. You just need to be able to think. Or find someone who can advise you; your local garden shop is a good place to start.

Item 4

A breakthrough in printing blood vessels is enabling a new approach to "printing" organs. While researchers don't claim they can ever find a way for members of CONgress to grow a spine, this breakthrough does hold promise for people who would otherwise have no hope. Read the full story here:

http://www.technologyreview.com/news/531106/emtech-3-d-printing-complex-kidney-components

Item 5

Too late for Christopher Reeves, but a welcome breakthrough nonetheless. Read about this major advance in help for those with spinal/cervical injuries: http://www.technologyreview.com/news/531051/paralyzed-rats-take-1000-steps-orchestrated-by-computer

Item 6

A company has come up with a great way to repurpose CRT waste glass. Read about it here: http://techtalk.pcpitstop.com/2014/09/25/ever-happened-first-monitor/?firstmonitor=

If not for the financial damage done by Obama's Porkulus Package, Obama's Unaffordable Care Act, and his many other economic waste and theft campaigns that have done to the economy what Lysol does to bacteria, we would have seen many more of these innovations over the past 5 years. Remember that at fake "election" time; don't give the narcissistic psychopath or his followers-on even the slightest approval. Their crimes have set us back immeasurably, and the damage will linger for decades.

Item 7

Microsoft has shut down its robotics group. That's awesome news for the rapidly growing base of robotics users. Why? Because except for Bing, Microsoft can't get anything right (which is why Microsoft is talking about selling Bing; the idea of competence is anathema there).

Robotics are vital to many industries, and to the national economies of many countries. Without Microsoft to totally botch things up, we can probably count on high quality robotics for decades to come.

I was going to say, "If only Microsoft would get out of the computer operating system market," but in a way they've pretty well done that already. Windows 7 was a colossal failure that business customers rejected until only this year and that consumers grudgingly "up" graded to. Windows 8 takes stupidity to a whole new level, even for Microsoft.

Microsoft's solution to this problem? Mix 7 and 8 together, so you get the worst of both worlds. Then release it as Windows 10, as if somehow skipping Windows 9 in the name sequence will stop even more people from fleeing to the Mac OS, Linux, and other platforms.

Out of morbid curiosity, I watched the tech preview of W10. Very depressing; more confusing "features" and less ability to get work done. But more ways to get frustrated trying to find things!

I can only wonder what kinds of drugs Microsoft executives are abusing, these days. Must be some pretty bad stuff. Read more here: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2469515,00.asp

We are spared this insanity in the area of robotics. Thank you, Microsoft! Now, if you could please get into the tobacco business you'd really be doing a service to society. Smokers would quit in record numbers.

Item 8

New medical diagnostics using bacteria. Read about it here:
http://www.technologyreview.com/news/531241/cancer-detecting-yogurt-could-replace-colonoscopies

I've been listening to an audiobook university lecture series on microbiota. What a fascinating topic! I highly recommend taking some time to learn about this subject.

Item 9

More news about bacteria. You've probably already heard that Eric "I love to commit crime" Holder has resigned as Attorney General. OK, my apologies to bacteria.

I don't know if the Guiness Book of World Records will list him as the most criminal Attorney General with the longest list of felony offenses, but his long crime spree has ended at last.

It's unlikely that the narcissistic psychopath who appointed Holder will replace him with a decent human being, but it is likely the next degenerate to hold that office won't be as bad as Holder. And that's pretty good news.

3. Brainpower tip

Based on the thoughtful, intelligent correspondence coming from readers of this newsletter, I can safely say that many (if not all) readers are suffering from Stupidity Deficiency Syndrome (SDS). Oh, the humanity!

There is some help for those wishing to overcome SDS:

  • Watch television. This brain-deadening exercise is perfect for the person who is in pursuit of a single digit IQ. Be sure to focus on network news, sitcoms, and other idiotic material. This almost ensures you get your RDA of stupidity.
     
  • Escew books, science magazines, technical magazines, and other sources of complex information. The material in these builds up your knowledge base. The mere act of reading (substantive or challenging) material stimulates your brain to create additional neurons, thus making you smarter. And we can't have that!
     
  • Don't do puzzles. These are to SDS what Obama is to economic health.
     
  • Don't build things, fix things, or have a hobby. See previous note.
     
  • Eat plenty of processed foods. These increase inflammation and contribute to the death of brain cells, while displacing foods that provide the nutrients necessary for a healthy brain. If you've been observing that some people talk and act as if they are almost brain dead, they aren't acting! They've been killing their brain systematically.
     
  • Get and stay angry. This puts you in a hormonal state that lowers both physical and mental health. Try to hate as many people as possible. Take offense at everything, don't be gracious, and do not accept or make apologies. If you practice this enough, you can become a road raging idiot instead of being the oddball rational driver on the road. Join the majority!
     
  • Just do it. A friend of mine is suffering horribly from SDS. He's planning to take a class on texting while driving, so he can be a dangerous nut behind the wheel instead of always being "different." So find stupid, irresponsible things you can do and just do them! This is how the truly stupid become so good at stupidity.
     
  • Adopt a blamer's attitude. Blaming others for your problems instead of solving them is a "twofer." First, it leaves you with problems that increase your stress and decrease your effective IQ. Second, by not putting your brain to work on your own problems you deny yourself some brain-building exercise. This is a favorite technique among the unintelligensia.
     
  • Put an Obama sticker on your car bumper. While doing this doesn't actually make you stupid, it signals to other people that you are stupid. They will then treat you like an idiot, setting in motion a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    IMPORTANT: Use the correct vintage. The 2008 version signals willful ignorance; failing to do a basic check into Obama, which would have revealed he was by far the worst possible candidate due to his having the worst spending record in the Senate at a time when the nation's economy was staggering from runaway federal spending. The 2012 version is the "single digit IQ" banner, because everyone had 4 years of in your face (and in your wallet) evidence. It is pretty stupid to approve of someone whose main accomplishment was to double the number of people of food stamps.


4. Finance tip

Back in June, I listened to the audiobook, "Lords of Finance." It explained quite a bit about how WWI came about, how WWII came about, postwar inflation in Europe, and how we got FDR's Great Depression.

Related to this, but not explained in the book, are things like the (USA) War Between The States (tagged by Lincoln, incorrectly, as a "civil war" but thankfully neither Lee nor Grant abused the language this way), the end of federal elections (in the USA), the subjugation of the (USA) Constitution, and other problems that the banksters have created for their own enrichment.

Here's an article that shows how the banksterism disease has progressed today. "12 Numbers About The Global Financial Ponzi Scheme That Should Be Burned Into Your Brain": http://investmentwatchblog.com/12-numbers-about-the-global-financial-ponzi-scheme-that-should-be-burned-into-your-brain/#6mSBH0DxdQ0KX6Zd.99 
 


5. Security tip

The Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths does not play by the rules, so don't be under any illusions that you have "rights" or the protection of due process should they target you.

These criminals can, for their own personal benefit, create a false tax debt and pick you at random to "owe" it. Then they can go straight to collection (without notifying you), using methods that are both illegal and sadistic, to damage you so badly you can't possibly fight back. This is how they get away with it; the solution is to fight them collectively (pester the heck out of CONgress to disband the group) rather than leave individuals to fend for themselves.

Suppose you're targeted. How will you know? Here's a typical scenario....

You'll find out one day that your checking account was wiped clean, the $500 overdraft protection kicked in and that got taken also. This was linked to your $50,000 home equity line of credit, which was at zero a few days ago and is now maxed out.

But that's just the start of the ordeal. You're racking up overdraft charges due to bouncing autopayments. You get several dings in your credit record as the electric company and others report you for nonpayment.

Then you come home to a dark house because your electricity got shut off, and there's not running water anymore either. You would go to a hotel, but your car was repo'd from the parking lot at work due to the bouncing payment. And the Institute used your bank records to obtain your credit card info and all your cards are maxed out.

Because your autopay for your mortgage bounced, your bank jumped on the chance to steal your sizeable equity stake (you have only a few years left to pay on it) by going straight to foreclosure. You've got 30 days to vacate the premises (dark as it is), but don't have the funds to rent a moving van.

You ask a couple of neighbors for help with moving or to at least give you a place to stash your stuff for a while. But they tell you they can't talk to you because two agents with badges visited them and harangued them for three hours asking about you and making threats to them. They've asked you not to come to their home again. Ever.

Gee, maybe you can ask your boss for an advance on your check? Well, there's a problem. You see, your HR department regularly checks employee credit ratings, and adds "irresponsible" employees to the layoff list. You lost your job shortly after you lost your electricity and water service.

Now you have no money, no job, no home, and no car.

And yet, you didn't do anything wrong.

But you did do something stupid. What was it?

When you submitted your "protection money" to the Institute along with your 1040 invasion of privacy paperwork, you enclosed a paper check drawn on the checking account from which you pay all of your bills. That's how the reprobates got your checking account number. Once they had that, they could attack you from multiple angles.

You should have multiple checking accounts--do you? One account is for your autopays; that acct number never goes on any paper checks so the acct is far less likely to be compromised. Another account is for your normal checking needs.

A third account is at a different credit union or bank from the other two. From this account, you pay your local, state, and federal income taxes. And the account has a PO Box rather than your street address. The trail to anywhere from this account is stone cold. Same thing, coming in. This means that, no matter what they do to this account, you can still pay your bills.

What trail? The reprobates can (without your knowledge or consent) force the bank or credit union to provide your checking account statements. They don't need a reason to do this. Once they have the statements, they see where the money comes from and where it goes to. But if nothing goes out from this account except tax payments, they can't follow the payments to see what you buy and from whom. Nor can they use this account to see where your paycheck comes from.

Once they are stopped at this juncture, they have no reason to continue the assault. They won't be intimidating your neighbors into having nothing to do with you; there's no money for them other than the little that's in this account. No $50,000 line of credit, no $10,000 limit credit cards, nothing. It's a dead end.

To get to your other accounts, they have to ask you (tell them no) for the information or get a court order for that information. The hassle isn't worth it; there are many other potential victims they can attack more easily. This works similar to locking your door; the criminals go to the next house looking for an unlocked door instead of trying to break into your house.

Important: Make all deposits to this account by money order or with cash. Never do an electronic transfer or paper check payment or anything else that leaves a trail--from either of your other two accounts. Never pay a credit card from this account. Pay only those taxes from this account.

Make sure your other accounts, at least the critical ones, do not pay interest (this way, there's no report to the reprobates). You want the reprobates to see only the checking account that you pay taxes from. Keep just enough in there to cover the payments as you make them. If they launch an attack, they get little or nothing. And obviously, you do not want overdraft protection on this account.

Is it legal to protect yourself this way? Absolutely. You're not hiding any taxable income (that's Chuck Rangel's job) and you're not lying under oath (that's Hillary Clinton's job).

You are required by the tax code to pay the taxes due. The TC does not require you to provide unsupervised, unaccountable psychopaths with easy access to your means of financial survival just so they can plunder it.

As long as you aren't using any accounts for the purpose of tax evasion, you're in the clear. You're using a specific account to limit the damage that can be done by people who ignore the law and abuse their federal position to steal for their personal enrichment.

Because our failed state has no rule of law, we Americans cannot look to our joke of a court system, the Department of Injustice, or our misrepresentatives in CONress to apply the law on our behalf. It's a DIY situation. You must use subtle means to protect your basic human rights.

This is one of those means.

As a bonus, it also means you have an account that is fully funded for your tax liabilities. Because it's isolated and only tax authorities (and you and the bank) have the account number, no third party is going to run down the account with an unauthorized or mistaken withdrawal and leave you sending a rubber check for your taxes. This is yet another way to keep you safe from letting those terrorists have an excuse to fry you. You can make it your sole reason, if you subscribe to the naive idea that if you didn't do anything wrong you have nothing to worry about from the Reprobates. If you're smart, you'll make it your official reason while realizing that everything else I've mentioned is compelling enough.

Maybe someday, we can restore law and order. That day has not arrived, so plan accordingly. Don't give the Reprobates any more information than the absolute minimum. You do not have to expose your regular checking accounts to their predations. Having an isolated checking account just for paying these terrorists is essential to your financial security.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

Lately, I've been bombarded with e-mails claiming to have a cure for Alzheimer's. Gee, does it not see odd that, somehow, that this "cure" has zero coverage in Discover Magazine, Science News, Nova, PBS, or The Daily Show?

All of those normally astute sources somehow missed this; what were they thinking?

There's a reason why they "missed" news of a "cure" for AD. The key to fighting AD lies in prevention, which is our topic in this issue. Before I get to that, let me explain why there's no cure for Alzheimer's.

Even though we call it Alzheimer's Disease, it really isn't a disease in the typical sense of the word. It's not diagnosed by detecting the presence of a pathogen, but instead by the loss of executive brain function. There's a simple test with a clock that is definitive for the diagnosis.

Most of the ads claim to restore memory. Memory loss is not what AD is about; it's just the most infamous of the symptoms. But it's not the worst symptom.

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle
 
What happens with AD is amyloid plaques form in brain tissue. These plaques dissolve neurons, destroying the brain. This process is believed to start decades before AD is diagnosed. As neurons dissolve, the brain gets smaller. If you compare the brain of a person who died from AD (and it is invariably fatal) to that of a typical non-AD victim, the difference in size is stunning.

You can no more "cure" AD than you can cure amputation. Once the brain is gone, it's gone.

Yes, the brain can generate new neurons, but not nearly as fast as the plaques dissolve them. And the brain does not regenerate itself the way, say, a fingernail does. This kind of brain damage is catastrophic and permanent. So there is no cure.

What I'm about to tell you applies to brain atrophy generally, also. This is a serious issue. A recent Mensa newsletter reported that at around age 40 the average person's brain starts shrinking and at death (from old age) is the size it was when that person was 7 years old. This outcome is not inevitable; it is mostly a consequence of poor choices over many years. Most experts believe the main driver is lack of intellectual stimulation; but most experts don't understand how widespread and deep malnutrition is in America. Yes, get that intellectual stimulation. But also be nearly religious about your food choices; they matter that much.

Prevention

There's much we don't know about the causes of AD. But we now have enough knowledge to be able to vastly reduce the risk factors. Some people claim that because AD "runs in families" you can do nothing to prevent it. That's a nonsequitor that assumes behavior has nothing to do with disease (or other organic maladies) when the reality is that behavior is a prime trigger for genetic weaknesses to result in bad outcomes like AD.

Your local library should have a few videos that explain AD and identify risk factors that you can control. You can also get information from the Alziemer's Association www.alz.org and the Alzheimer's Foundation www.alzfdn.org.

Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Eliminate the aluminum. Rid your kitchen of all aluminum cookware.
  2. Eliminate the aluminum. Do not use commercial baking powder; it contains aluminum. Make your own using 2 parts cream of tartar, one part baking soda, and one part thickener (corn starch, arrowroot, or potato starch for example).
  3. Eliminate the aluminum. Do not use antiperspirant. If your underarms stink, it's because you need to correct your diet not because you need to poison yourself with a high-AD risk toxic metal.
  4. Eliminate meat, wheat, corn, and soy from your diet. Why would this be? Aside from the fact that doing so is a foundation step for general health, all of these are contaminated with a powerful neurotoxin courtesy of the psychopaths at Monsanto. If you can get organic meat, and if you can get organic legacy wheat, corn, or soy (very much a long shot), then these foods are OK.
  5. Eliminate tuna from your diet. Why? Because is is heavily contaminated with mercury, a brain cell killer. No predator fish is safe to eat, period.

Did you notice I used the word "eliminate" rather than "avoid?" There is no moderation with these toxins. Aluminum is a known risk factor for AD. The other items cause brain damage generally, and the damage is irreversible. If you've been eating these items, you already have brain damage. Don't incur further brain damage by continuing to eat these items.

You can prevent future damage by eating copious quantities of cilantro and garlic to rid your body of any of these metals still stored in your body (for example, in your liver fat) and by not eating these foods. Did I stress "avoid the aluminum" enough? For your sake, I hope so. It's a critical issue, so act today to stop the damage.

 

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

The Shell Oil Company originally began as a novelty shop in London that sold seashells. That brings to mind another factoid: The roar that we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in the ear.

This is very similar to the roar that we hear as our blood pressure rises when paying for fuel at the Shell gas pump….

8. Thought for the Day

All the world's a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.
