1. Good News

Item 1. Brain damage from American football is a serious problem that is well-documented. Better helmets won't solve the problem, because it's caused by the brain's sloshing around in the brain pan. It's the impact, not a problem with penetration. Until fans step up and do the right thing (boycott football games), the carnage will continue. But there is a new way to reduce the damage. Read the full story here:

Item 2. The movement to make Jimmy Page our next President isn't completely dead. He stands almost no chance of becoming our President, but would be by far the most qualified in decades (assuming, of course, we continue to ignore the Constitutional requirements and he lowers himself enough to accept the job). At least there is a glimmer of hope, and that's good news.

Item 3. The dream team: Jimmy Page, President; Robert Plant, Vice President; John Paul Jones, Secretary of State; Jason Bonham, Secretary of Defense. Not likely, but the image is mood-elevating considering the parade of morons and misfits who have been occupying these positions for so long.

Item 4. Quantum dots may soon be helping cancer surgeons do a much better job. Read the full story here:

3. Brainpower tip

Over the past few months, several people have asked me how to effectively deal with proselytizing Libtards. Their major complaint is the Libtards are angry, belittling, threatening, and loud; they do not let the victim inject facts or logic into the "discussion" but instead try to bully them into agreement.

Here's the bad news for those of you with functioning brains. There is not a way to deal effectively with proselytizing Libtards. You cannot reason with irrationality.

For the Libtard, it's a matter of tribal identity and approval. Thus, the Libtard finds reality threatening. That's why the Libtard becomes abusive and threatening if the victim does not confer approval upon the stupidity. Going beyond mere withholding of stupidity approval to try to heal the Libtard of his/her delusions only makes matters worse.

No long ago I made the mistake of trying to educate a Libtard on a matter of early USA history. I mentioned the great statesman and founding father Elbridge Gerry, and the Libtard accused me of making up his name! Never confuse a Libtard with facts or logic, you just get stupidity in response.

I think the real question behind the question is how to avoid being drawn into the Libtard alternate universe, what I like to refer to as the vortex of stupidity.

We all want to get along with people (all of us except Libtards, who make total acquiescence and support of their delusions a condition for getting along with them). We don't want to argue (but Libtards mindlessly argue as a matter of course). The danger is when you find common ground, that ground becomes a slippery slope into the Libtard vortex of stupidity.

I also think this (dealing with Libtards) is a needless concern, IF you orient your thinking properly. Here are some tips:

  1. Don't worry about what the Libtard non-thinks about you. Have confidence in your own standards. You do not need the approval of someone who is brainwashed and/or braindead. Own the situation.
     
  2. Treat the Libtard with respect and consideration, so that you are taking the high road. But draw a firm line about "discussion." Simply say, "I can see you are passionate about this subject, but I do not wish to discuss it. Please respect my wish. It's nothing personal against you. Can you respect that?" Libtards usually fire back with some insults about close-mindedness (their favorite method of psychological projection) or being a racist (their favorite irrelevant slur). Just continue to be polite. If you want to be less than honest, you can say, "Of course, you are right. I agree with everything you say. It makes perfect sense." That stupidity validation is what the Libtard wants; the Libtard isn't going to use his/her mind, no matter what you say. So just tell the Libtard what s/he wants to hear. But walk away, if the abuse continues.
     
  3. Don't focus on the Libtard. Focus on yourself. Rather than spend mental energy vainly dealing with the Libtard, follow the preceding two tips to negate the pull of the stupidity vortex. Spend the time that you save on expanding your own knowledge base by reading, having discussions with intelligent people, listening to non-fiction audiobooks (my favorites are the University Lecture Series), and doing interesting things.
     
  4. Seek out the positive. Remember that Libtards live a toxic, negativity-based existence. They are mentally and emotionally necrotic in many ways, and are actually repelled by healthy, positive thinking. The more you engage in healthy, positive thinking, of course the better off you are generally. But this also gives you a natural defense against Libtard attacks.
     
  5. Attract the intelligent. You can waste time engaging with Libtards, thus covering yourself with a "smell" that repels intelligent people, or you can avoid Libtards and attract intelligent people by doing "intelligent things." Libtards will seldom wade into a place filled with intelligence, because they find intelligence so threatening. Cloak yourself in it, and your Libtard problems should pretty much go away.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

I apologize that the images from last issue's eNL didn't show up. At right is one of them, taken 16SEP. Yes, those are really my abs.

Below that is another photo, taken 22SEP. Yes, that is really my back.

Got my haircut between these photos....

I think from these pictures, taken at age 56, you can see that when it comes to training and nutrition that I know what I'm doing. And that makes this column worth reading and its advice worth integrating into your fitness program and your lifestyle.

I hope these pictures also inspire you to have your own best body.

Many people dish out health/fitness advice, and few of them have any idea what they are talking about. They don't know the "why" and don't even care to ask.

What I tell you is based on facts, evidence, and experience. In my case, over forty years of experience in nutrition and physical training.

Just to highlight, I was a precocious child who was able to read before even attending kindergarten. I used this gift to research and solve the chronic illness problem that plagued me from birth. I was always sick, in and out of the hospital.

By "going extreme" with nutrition, I cured myself and thus have not been sick since age 10. The chronic part ended around age 7. My mom asked me what kind of cake I wanted for my 8th birthday, and I told her cake is junk food and I won't eat it. THAT kind of discipline is why I do not get sick and why I have the body I have today.

To me, this is far less extreme than going through life with a sick body and spending your last decade in diapers with no independence and lots of misery and pain.

Twenty years from now, I will still be training hard and will still have a lean, muscular, strong body that looks amazing. Twenty years from now, most guys my age will be dead.

One reason most guys my age will be dead is they accept by faith what "experts" tell them. They follow harmful advice like cutting out salt, reducing fat to nearly zero, lifting more weight than their joints are designed to handle, and pumping out an insane number of reps.

Or doing truly stupid exercises like sit-ups and truly dangerous ones like behind the neck pulldowns. Because some clueless trainer told them that's what they need to do.

 

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle

Or spending hours at the gym, using ineffective training methods and then scarfing down a big whey protein shake that will result in 40g of protein being converted to fat while also passing along the mammary pus and antibiotics that were in the diseased cow's milk.

Now, it's not that I personally came up with "the right way" and everyone else is an idiot. But it is true that most of the "experts" people trust are idiots.

So where DO I get my information?

I don't look like a competitive body builder, so one might logically assume that's not the source. And I've advocated hanging leg raises, an exercise I perform weekly. My huge obliques are the evidence I heavily work my midsection. Competitive body builders, by contrast, take care not to stimulate growth in this area.

In fact, the legendary trainer Vince Gironda absolutely barred his bodybuilders from doing leg raises. The reason is that exercise stimulates growth of the obliques, thus diminishing the taper that is so important to competitive body building.

But I'm an elite athlete, not a competitive body builder (OK, they are elite athletes also but you get my meaning I hope).

I want the core strength and don't care so much about the particular look. IMO, how I look is secondary; how I feel and how I function are primary.

I can still deliver a knockout reverse hook kick to the head, something a competitive body builder can't do. Could I do that 20 years from now? Hard to say, but I'm conditioning NOW to make that possible THEN. I'll keep my big obliques, thank you very much.

That is not to say I disparage competitive body building. I just have a different set of goals. The body of knowledge in the body building world, is, in fact, my source. I get just about all my fitness info from the world of body building; I can’t really take other sources very seriously.

The diet is the same. The training is the same, except for the emphasis.

In my opinion, EVERYONE should be following the body builder diet. If they did, the demand for "health care" (medical care) would drop probably by 98%. Note, this diet is NOT the Paleo Diet. The PD is fundamentally flawed, though it does improve over cancer-causing, obesity-causing, brain-damaging, testosterone-killing grain based diet that the vast majority of people mindlessly accept as somehow acceptable.

I also believe strength training following the body building "body of knowledge" is so hugely advantageous people who don't embrace it are cheating themselves.

But the popular "wisdom" is basically the opposite. What doctors tell you is nearly always contradictory to the truth; just look at that doctor's doughy face. The next time a doctor advises you on diet, insist s/he raise her/his shirt and show you her/his ripped abs. That won't happen, because only with rare exception is a doctor not a total jelly belly. They don't know diddly about nutrition or training, and their bodies reflect this fact. You can see my ripped abs, and my 40th High School Reunion is about 18 months away.

Taking this example a bit further, why does that doctor have a jelly belly? Is it because s/he does not believe her/his advice is worth following? Or that advice is just malarkey to begin with? If they can't walk the walk, ignore their talk.

Not only does the medical industry remain pathetically clueless about health care, they cannot fix the consequences of poor health care. And poor health care is fanatically the norm in the USA.

Don't let the disease fanatics around you dissuade you from walking the path of rationality. The vast majority of people cave in to the pressure to live in an insane manner. Stand up to this pressure, and you will be rewarded.

In the disease culture that engulfs the USA, those of us who build great bodies are "health nuts" and "fringe" folks who take things to the extreme. Who is really extreme, though--the person who has plenty of energy and does not get sick or the person is whose lifestyle is devoted to the process of dying rather than the process of living?

Follow my lead, if you want to live.

 

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 financial crimes that cost 6 million Americans their jobs and 8 million Americans their homes in 2008 resulted in only one criminal actually going to jail (he was a bit player). The most egregious criminals enjoyed enormous financial gain and continued committing their crimes. Congress did nothing, except flap their gums while accepting massive sums of money from these criminals. Can you say "extreme corruption?" Thought so.
