1. Good News

I've been administering a free medical exam that checks for proper brain function. And thus far everyone I've administered it to has passed the test. I've even tried it on people in other countries, and they also get it right. Great news!

You can try this test yourself, to check those you know. It uses a simple word association. I tell test subjects to say the first word that pops into their mind when I say, "Narcissistic psychopath."

We even have good news coming from CONgress. It seems one member there actually represents, not misrepresents, the people in his district and is actually trying to help:

Too bad this effort didn't come in late 2008, before the narcissistic psychopath took office. By then, he'd already launched his first major attack on our economy by tripling the budget deficit before even taking office. If we can have pre-emptive war to "protect the country" then an assault of that magnitude is surely grounds for pre-emptive impeachment.

So what was the assault? You may recall that the narcissistic psychopath added $800 billion to Bush's 2008 budget (the incoming POTUS gets his starting budget from his predecessor). This, despite his earlier speech about runaway spending, bloated the deficit to $1.2 trillion. Of course, when he gave that speech he was THE biggest spending senator and NEVER voted against ANY spending measure.

Naturally, the narcissistic psychopath then lied that he inherited that huge deficit from Bush. Nothing, of course, could be further from the truth. As with so many other things this man has said.

That savage assault on our economy coincided with another savage assault engineered by Goldman Sucks (a more descriptive name for a major bankster firm). The homeless rate shot way up in America thanks to these two brutal assaults on our economy. In Kansas City alone, there were over 800 homeless school children.

None of the Goldman Sucks principals were even indicted and ALL of the narcissistic psychopath's financial people either were Goldman Sucks alumni or took cushy jobs there not long after the smoke cleared. Yet, somehow the narcissistic psychopath was re "elected" in 2012.

Whether we have a huge number of totally uninformed voters in this country or don't have valid elections is not the question; it's a combination of both. The fake "elections" are just a poll to see if people "get it" and when they don't we get an acceleration of crime. In this case, we got an expanded IRS and other problems via the Unaffordable Care Act.

But back to this bankster problem. When Elizabeth Warren asked federal "regulators" a simple question, "When did you last bring any a Wall Street bank to trial?" they lied rather than answer her.

The various scams, scandals, and crimes surrounding the current (mis)administration are actually adding up to something positive. The severe pain is finally waking people up. The zombie effect seems to be wearing off, and that could mean the restoration of law and order at long last.

2. Product Highlight

If you train with weights, you have just got to try JS Nitro's Amino Armor. Don't get too fixated on the "amino" part. Though it does provide the three essential BCAAs to promote rapid recovery, it's not an amino complex. It's a true preworkout supplement, and perhaps the best you'll find anywhere.

Let me explain by first telling you that over the past couple of years, I've been examining and testing various preworkout supplements. Most of these follow the same basic formula:

  • Mix beta-alanine and creatine.
  • Maybe add wa-a-y too much L-Arginine so you can claim "skin stretching pumps".
  • Add overdoses of stimulants, to deceive the user with a drug high.
  • Add addictive sweeteners, to encourage over-use.
  • Give it an aggressive-sounding name.
  • Pay some steroidal freak to pose in magazine ads for it.
  • Price it at $79.99 or higher.

The stimulants give the user the impression of "getting results" but it's actually a euphoria brought on by overdoses of stimulants. The typical supplement itself is a crude, partial solution; you can mix beta-alanine and creatine into Jolt Cola to get basically the same thing at a fraction of the price.

But there is another option. JS Nitro provides it. And it's only $34.99.




While beta-alanine makes sense in a preworkout supplement, the evidence shows creatine is more effective as a recovery supplement.

Why? Because creatine helps restore the ATP you used up during a hard workout. Also, many people get a stomach ache when ingesting creatine and that's not a good thing to have when trying to focus on your workout. So Amino Armor doesn't contain creatine. If you really want creatine during your workout, then you can also take that about 30 minutes prior.

Like most preworkout supplements, Amino Armor contains beta-alanine. This is really effective as part of a preworkout supplement. But Amino Armor goes beyond simply providing a glorified "catch a buzz" beta-alanine supplement to provide something that's actually going to help you achieve your goals.

The team at JS Nitro really thought this out. Take a look at the ingredients panel (see the "Panel" tab on the product page), and you'll see that this is actually an engineered product. It hits all the points needed for promoting muscle growth. Which is the object of working out.

What it doesn't do is get you high, which is what most consumers equate to "results in the gym" when using the typical preworkout supplement. But a drug buzz isn't the same as being in the optimum condition to push your workout for maximum muscle growth.

You can take that sugary drug high stuff and have a great time buzzing through your workout. And being at greater risk for injury.

Or, you can use Amino Armor and have a great time seeing increased gains from your workout.

I know what the various ingredients of Amino Armor do, because I've been reading up on them and testing them. Seeing them all in one package just impresses the heck out of me. Nobody else has thought of a nutrient strategy and brought the product to market. John Scott and his team have, and it's a fantastic product.

Testing Amino Armor validated what I predicted from analyzing the combination of what's in it.

I didn't get:

  • A drug-induced buzz, and I don't want that because I'm serious about my workouts. I don't need an artificial high as a crutch to get me to train hard or to induce me to injure myself.
  • The "skin-breaking massive pump" that is actually a sign of overdose. There's a reason your body flushes this out rather quickly....

I did get:

  • An increased ability to push weight. I could contract harder (greater intensity, thus greater results), and I could do that repeatedly from one set to the next without having to remove as much weight.
  • A good-feeling pump that was still there several hours later.
  • Very short recovery times. In front squats, for example, my quads normally feel sore and weak for days afterwards. Amino Armor seems to shield me from that effect entirely.
  • A hard workout that didn't leave me feeling exhausted the rest of the day. The "armor" in the name of this product is no exaggeration.

3. Brainpower tip

Late last summer, Princeton University researchers released a study that (among other things) found that feeling poor can lower your IQ by 13 points. It's no coincidence that a sleepless night produces the same effect. As with all studies, it's important not to read too much into it. But the finding does concur with other things we know about mental acuity and the methodology was sound.

During the ordeal known as Obamageddon, many people have become chronic worriers about money. And I don't mean just the 10s of millions of Americans who, thanks to that narcissistic pyschopath, have seen their financial health completely trashed. Many other people are worrying. With the Unaffordable Care Act continuing to threaten both our economy and our civil liberties (what's left of either, that is) on top of everything else that's gone disastrously wrong, this is understandable. But it isn't helping.

You can't change the rampant crime that causes large scale economic misery. But letting the consequences of the crime weigh on you helps the criminals by making you less intelligent. They steal your money; don't let them steal your brainpower also.

Some tips to avoid dwelling on this garbage:

  • Practice civility. This is a bit of a lost art, today. Make it your standard practice. You'll feel good by making others feel respected. Feeling good is better than obsessing over money (or lack thereof).
  • Create reasons to be happy. Having a hobby or other enjoyable interest is one way to generate some "feel good" time. So is walking a dog or playing with a cat. If you're a parent, set aside time just to be with your child.
  • Read good nonfiction books. This brainbooster also is a way to avoid negative thinking because you're absorbing thoughts on a different topic altogether.

Also, to help protect your income source (if you hold a job):

  • Work smart. Think about how you can do your job better. Do what's within your power to improve; discuss with your boss improvements that require additional resources.
  • Work hard. By focusing on your work and getting tasks done, you achieve more.
  • Add value. Rather than just do what your boss tells you to do, think about what might make you more valuable to your boss (or customer, pretty much the same thing) and try to implement that. But do this smartly. You may need to offer something rather than just do it.

Don't be a victim. Fight back. Help to stop the crime:

  • When elections roll around, don't surrender your vote. Use it to vote in the affirmative for law and order (vote Libertarian, rather than for the same old organized crime syndicate).
  • Boycott bad corporations. Do you have an account with a big bank(ster)? Do you buy products from companies that have been in the news due to their repeated scandals, environmental disasters, etc.? You are voting with your dollars. Make that vote count against, not for, criminals.
  • Speak plainly to others. For example, call the Unaffordable Care Act what it is. Don't call it by a name that is a blatant lie. Don't let language abuse dictate the terms of the debate.
  • Speak up. If you don't like it that the federal debt has nearly doubled since Obama took office, say so. This debt is what's driving the Depression we are in. We have to solve the debt problem for an economic recovery to occur, for the same reason you don't get a larger number when you subtract 12 from 15.

Don't think poor thoughts, because they make you think poorly. But do think of what you can do to make the world around you better, even if just a little teensy bit better.

Smiling warmly at a stranger might seem inconsequential at the time, but both people are better off because you did it. And an odd chain of positive events that your smile set in motion could produce really big results. You just never know. So keep smiling.

4. Finance tip

Why do we tolerate costly criminal misconduct such as that in the item below?

Answer: Because we don't insist that the House of Representatives actually represents us. Send this item to your alleged representative, today. Ask for action in ending the IRS. There is no legitimate reason for that agency to exist, and no downside whatsoever from abolishing it immediately. Bonus: Without an IRS, many current IRS employees could do productive work and actually contribute to society.

Here's the "item below":

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

Frequent contributor Howard contributed this item.

He sent that after we had a conversation about turmeric. It's a "miracle spice" and I have  been using it for many years.

Originally, I used it only for chili and the occasional soup dish. But a few years back, I read that black pepper is a potent anti-carcinogen and so is turmeric. When you combine the two, their anti-cancer effects don't merely add--they multiply. So I began regularly combing the two in my food.

Then I had a tendon injury; minor, but still painful and annoying. I asked my doctor what I could do to speed up recovery. He said, "Eat massive amounts of turmeric."

Turmeric has many beneficial properties, including being an anti-inflammatory. Take turmeric instead of Ibuprofen.

Indians have used turmeric as a cooking spice and as a medicine for a very long time; reportedly, many centuries. They even apply it directly onto wounds as an antiseptic.

What prompted the conversation about turmeric was I mentioned to Howard an incident at the grocery store. When I took turmeric from the shelf, I noticed there was only one left. So asked a checkout clerk if she could notify someone about this so another customer doesn't come in for turmeric and find there isn't any. She didn't know what it was. In fact, three other checkout clerks didn't know either. This astounded me.

I suppose I should not have been surprised, because I went through this same "What is that?" routine with bok choy. This vegetable is a member of the brassica family and is an excellent source of dietary calcium. I eat it daily. That someone working in a grocery checkout would not know what it is strikes me as remarkable. Which is why I'm remarking on it.

I've written before about the disease culture we have in the USA. Typically, people make disease-inducing food choices. But are there really so few people buying these good foods that the checkout people have no idea what they are? Apparently, yes.

So I am sharing with you, dear readers, this information. Odds are you don't use turmeric and don't eat bok choy. Choose to do so regularly, beginning with your next trip to the grocery store. You won't regret making that smart choice.

At, 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

Albert Einstein was offered the presidency of Israel in 1952, but he declined. If only Obama had done the same in the USA, but then he is at the opposite end of the IQ spectrum.

8. Thought for the Day

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

"I'm not a member of any organized party, I'm a Democrat."
