1. Product Highlight

Get help getting lean for summer
This is our most popular fitness-related offering, and it's not hard to see why.

Nitro All Natural Night Time Fat Burner helps you burn fat while you sleep. Yes, it really works. You will sleep better, plus burn an amazing amount of fat.


One of our regular customers is a major name in the movie business (you would recognize the name instantly). We aren't revealing his name, because he asked us not to and we respect his privacy. What's important to know  is the Nitro All Natural Night Time Fat Burner flat out works. Try it for yourself, and see.

2. Brainpower tip

Like many people, I've been analyzing the stupidity epidemic, looking at what might be causing it. One reason the epidemic has such amazing breadth and depth is it has many causes. These fall into two general categories:
  1. Things that adversely affect intelligence and are done anyhow.
  2. Things that improve intelligence and aren't done.

To boost your brainpower, take a close look at your various activities and ask yourself if you should:

  • Do less of them. For example, reading fiction instead of challenging nonfiction.
  • Do more of them. For example,
  • Skip them altogether. For example, watching television or reading the newspaper leaves you disinformed. Skipping these activities makes you smarter.

Of course, you also need to address such basics as eating right, sleeping enough, and exercising vigorously often enough. The more you structure your activities with those two general categories, the more you raise your immunity to stupidity. You'll still bear the enormous costs of paying for the stupidity of others, but you won't be personally inflicted.

3. Finance tip

This link:

...goes to a letter from Dr. Ron Paul. It's actually a "blast from the past," which makes it especially authoritative because what it predicted came true.

While the letter contains a few errors (e.g., Dr. Paul often refers to "printing money," but something like less than 2% of our money is actually printed), it does a good job of explaining why your hard-earned dollars buy so much less today. The only way to correct that problem is to refuse to rubberstamp the Demopublican agenda at the polls this fall.

Remember, every time you vote for a Demopublican you may as well be wearing a shirt that says, "Rob me."

4. Security tip

In a previous issue,  I mentioned the 3 Ds personal security:
  1. Deter. Make it hard for thieves to attack you, in the first place.
  2. Detect. Know when your security has been compromised.
  3. Defend. Take corrective action.

Now, let's look at….


If a credit card has been compromised, contact the card issuer immediately. They will cancel that card and issue a new one. The same principle applies to other accounts, though those are less likely to be compromised.

File a police report. This probably won't do anything for your particular case. But, local police have fraud units and are becoming adept at building profiles of fraudsters and nailing them. Filing the report can help put a career criminal out of business (too bad voting can't do the same).

Keep copies of all documents related to the theft, for ten years. You never know when you will have to prove you don't owe something.

If the identity theft involves a tax matter, keep the records permanently. Contrary to popular belief, the IRS has loopholes six ways to Sunday for ignoring any and all laws that supposedly protect you. That includes the Statutes of Limitations for assessment and collections. Imagine being told in 1998 that you owe for 1982, and the IRS can continue collection action until 2014. That's a span not of 3 years but of 32 years. The interest and penalties exceed your 1982 earnings several times over. And the underlying tax is not an income tax but a tax on a theft loss--something not even in the Tax Code. This is exactly what happened to the Hoyt investors.

5. Health tip/Fitness tips

People are suddenly talking about "going green," a concept that was huge in the 1960s. That has to do with using less energy, wasting less, and recycling more. It actually did stick with many of us, who now smirk that it's "news." Let's hope this time around more folks will be better stewards after the excitement dies down.

There's another aspect to green, and it has to do with eating green. The Food Pyramid is wrong, wrong, wrong. Read the right information here:

6. Miscellany

  1. A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why. But we are now experiencing costly echoes of the currency devaluation conducted by the Federal Reserve to help disguise the profligate spending of CONgress. Fully 100% of the rise in the cost of gasoline is directly attributable to this devaluation. Actually, the real cost of gasoline is less than it was 20 years ago, if adjusted for currency devaluation (also known as inflation).
  2. We don't run ads in our newsletter. We do get inquiries from advertisers, all the time. To keep this eNL coming, go to and do your shopping from there (as appropriate).

  3. Please forward this eNL to others.

7. Thought for the Day

If you don't do what you have to do, it won't get done.


Wishing you the best,
