1. Good News
1. Non-zombies have produced a resource that enables Americans to see the
ravaging effects of the Unaffordable Care Act on medical insurance premiums,
state by state:
http://heritageaction.com/obamacare/. This is good news, because it's yet
another arrow in the quiver of people interested in stopping the devastating
crime spree that is based in Washington, DC (District of Corruption). Click one
of the four demographic types, and see the colors change. The key is in the
2. While citizens of the USA slip ever deeper into debt slavery, the citizens of
Hungary recently threw off their bankster chains:

sharing this good news. It brings hope.
3. Wayne Allen Root, a champion of liberty, wrote a fact-filled, hard-hitting
article that begins:
"Forget impeachment; it’s time for criminal prosecution. Obamacare isn’t
about incompetence, and it isn’t about political disagreement. It’s about a
trillion-dollar fraud carried out by the President of the United States."
You can do a search online and find this. What's uplifting about it, to me,
is the fact that influential thinking people are no longer carping about mere
incompetence as if Obama hadn't intended all along to wreak massive damage upon
the United States. His intent has been obvious since before he even took office,
but he's gotten an extremely generous "benefit of the doubt."
The "Maybe he didn't mean for the economy to nosedive when he massively
drained more trillions out of it via aggressive spending" is like saying, "Maybe
he didn't mean for the victim to pass out from blood loss when he repeatedly
stabbed him in the femoral artery." It's good to see that this sort of stupidity
is being dropped for more realistic evaluations of Obama's malevolence. Perhaps
at long last something can be done to exert the protection of rule by law upon
this former democratic republic.

Get your information from reputable, accurate sources. For example, here's an
unbiased, accurate video about the

4. Finance tip
The vast transfers of capital from the economy into the coffers of the criminals
who have Obama, et al, on their payroll is why the number of people on food
stamps has doubled. It's also why the employment picture is dismal.|
though every second grader knows you can't add by subtracting, this
misadministration and its state-run media keep asserting they can increase the
economy by subtracting capital from this.
That's why they publish utterly false employment data. See this video:
No matter how many coupons you clip, you aren't going to stay ahead of this
destructive theft juggernaut. It's the elephant in the living room. Some tips to
help slay this beast:
- Refuse to surrender your vote to the Demopublicans. This only serves to
signal to them that you approve of the crime. There isn't a "lesser of two
evils," as both wings of this party serve the same master. Either way, you
lose. Instead, support a major second party such as the Libertarian Party
(there really isn't another second party of any significance).
- Write to your CONgressman and senators, asking why Bill Clinton could
balance the budget but Obama's deficit last year alone was a staggering $6
trillion. Be sure to inform them that this really was $6 trillion according
to the GAO, not the "mere" $1 trillion that Obama has repeatedly asserted.
- If you do business with any of the big banksters, move your accounts
somewhere else. Small local banks have great deals going, as do credit
unions. The big banksters criminals received $49 trillion in counterfeited
funds from the nonFederal nonReserve between 2008 and 2012--that criminal
caper had a huge effect on everyone's financial condition due to its sheer
- Use less gasoline, so you are contributing less to Big Oil and its
control of CONgress.
- Help Obamazombies and other non-thinkers to restart their brains. Each
awakened soul is another person who can help in this struggle.
- If you have subscriptions to propagandistic newspapers or magazines that
whitewash and spin this hugely important issue, cancel them. This will
protect you from the brainwashing and will also mean you're not helping
support the brainwashing of others.
- Support small businesses (e.g., Mindconnection). We fuel economic
- Boycott businesses that abuse the taxpayer (e.g., Wal-Mart, which
grossly underpays its employees who subsequently must rely upon federal
subsidies just to survive), and give your patronage to businesses that pay a
- At your own job, be thinking of how to do things better. That can mean
figuring out how to produce higher quality work (more value) or how to work
more efficiently by eliminating wasted steps (less cost). It can mean quite
a few things, all of which can improve the employment picture where you

Would you like to know who's watching which websites you visit? Well there's an
app for that.
It's standard practice for advertisers to keeps tabs on the sites you frequent
using tracking cookies. Tracking cookies are small text files that are
downloaded on to your computer that log the websites you browse and, in some
case, how you interact with these sites. Advertisers and other companies use
these logs to build a profile of your interests, allowing advertisers to sell
you products and services you're more likely to buy.
In an attempt to highlight just how many different firms are tracking our
browsing habits online Mozilla has produced Lightbeam, an add-on that can be
downloaded for the Firefox browser that captures who is watching you.
Every time you visit a site the tool logs every web address that is connecting
to your machine, revealing how visiting a single website can result in your
computer to connecting to many different web servers. Each of these servers may
be controlled by different companies, and send and collect different information
for example, serving up images and adverts on the site or placing tracking
cookies on your computer.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips
Jim wrote with some questions about the bench press.
Jim: I want to increase
how much I can bench press. What's the best rep/set combo for this?
Mark: If you want to increase your bench press, don't do bench pressing. The
reason? If you really want to work your pecs, do flyes. During his prime, Arnold
rarely did bench presses for training. He was relentless with flyes, however.
You can increase your bench press by pronating your shoulders forward; this is
what most men do. They cheat. This means, when training, very little real
stimulation to the pecs and a huge risk of injury. You can tell when men train
this way. Pull their shoulders back to where they belong,
and most men can't bench 100 lbs. All that bench-pressing in bad form was a
waste of time.
By doing flyes, you really do work your pecs. That's because you can't cheat
by recruiting your front delts.
At age 51.
Click for more detail.
Of course, you can increase your bench press by bench pressing. I just don't
recommend going that route unless you are really disciplined about strict form.
Jim: How much can you bench?
Mark: Sorry, Jim, but that particular question is a Shibboleth. People who
know how to train don't ask it. But here's your answer. I don't know. I have
benched 240, and I weigh about 160. It does feel really heavy, but I don't think
it's my limit because I have "more" that isn't yet tapped at this weight.
I've never tried for the max, as
this exercise is just too dangerous for me to want to go there. I think it's
best not to worry about your max bench or anyone else's.
Jim: I've seen your supplecity photos where your chest looks big. Your pecs
really stand out in some of those shots. How big is your chest? 40 inches?
Mark: It measures 44 inches, while my waist measures 31 inches. But during his
prime, Arnold had a 54 inch chest with a 30 inch waist.
Jim: I notice you're all ripply. But I just want cuts in my pecs. What should
Mark: Watch any of the Stallone movies that have been made since Cliffhanger.
Do you notice that Stallone has a very low level of body fat? That is how you
get cuts. You either have low body fat (and thus the cuts) or you don't. You
can't do "just enough" to get them in a particular location, such as your chest.
Eat right (covered in other newsletters) and train hard. And no, you don't need
to spend hours on the treadmill or engage in any other dreary, patience-testing
Jim: Any final tips on the bench press?
Mark: Yes. Don't focus on the bench press. It is not the end all, and it is
not the measure of an athlete.
For a good, athletic look, you need to work your whole body (just not in the
same workout). If you want to focus on something, focus on your posture. Stand
erect with shoulders back, gut sucked in (and slightly up), and chin up; this is
the classic military pose. It makes you look much larger than you look if you
adopt the normal slouched posture. You are also more powerful in this posture
than when slouched.
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.
