1. Good News

Item 1

My good buddy Joe, who is a card-carrying Democrat, sent this very uplifting item from at a rally for a Democrat in Very Liberal Maryland:

At last, the Democrats act like Democrats instead of sycophants to this Arab-posing-as-Black illegal alien Kenyan dictator who doesn't even use his legal name. It simply is not possible to put positive spin on the devastation caused by his crimes. His trying to do so was so intellectually insulting to these folks that they walked out.

This adds some muscle to the deportation suit filed against him recently. Prison or deportation could be Soetoro's fate soon--maybe a very, very Merry Christmas for America this year!


Item 2

Well, there's good news and there's bad news. The bad news is we don't have another good news item for this issue. Maybe in the next issue, we will be able to share the news that the narcissistic psychopath has finally been arrested and charged with various felonies and over 3,000 counts of fraud. That would be change we can  believe in!

2. Product Highlight

In the previous issue, I mentioned that that many subscribers work in "brainy" careers and one of those is engineering.

That issue also featured one of the wide frame scanners that we offer to this market. We actually offer three of them:

  • 24-inch frame.
  • 36-inch frame.
  • 54-inch frame.

And we offer another very interesting scanning product. It's the Wideframe Scanner Repro System, 44-inch IQ44MFP2GO. Basically, it turns your wide-frame printer into a wide-frame copier!

This giving you the small footprint you need without compromising on performance and versatility. This easy to use plug-and-play solution for your wide-format printer can scan 14 in./sec. It's easy to use and it's energy-efficient. Click the pic to watch the video and find out more about it.

3. Brainpower tip

Beware of the mudstream media. Have you noticed they are calling a few cases of Ebola an "epidemic"? Think about what's wrong with that, if the problem doesn't jump out at you immediately.

Regarding what's wrong with the mudstream media, I could write a book longer than War and Peace. But I will summarize: Brain poison.

4. Finance tip

If you've talked with people who work at your grocery store (or at many other places you may do business with), you've very likely heard them complain about having their hours cut. Many people who had full-time jobs that they barely survived on now have two part-time jobs that they barely survive on but they no longer have paid benefits. And you know this started the year the Unaffordable Care Act was passed.

This isn't anecdotal or limited to your immediate area. It's the new reality for the nation.

Here's an article with more information:

And this one, too:

Now, it's important to note that an economy is a SYSTEM. That means when one giant demographic is pummeled, the negative effects spread to just about everybody else. So the Unaffordable Care Act doesn't just hike your insurance rates and/or reduce the coverage you get. It also has many other pernicious effects on your personal finances even if you didn't lose your job because of it (millions did lose their jobs, but aren't counted as "unemployed" because they still work part-time).

What can you do about the UCA?

First, you probably know it's illegal in many ways. If you don't know this, then you have some serious catching up to do. Second, because of the devastation it's caused, the UCA is morally repugnant. Forcing people to lose their homes is not generally considered to be something nice. Third, the UCA is not about health nor is it really about medical care; it's about stealing.

Some nations have different branches of government that act to check and balance each other. Ours (USA) is not one of those nations; else the UCA would not have been written by the Senate nor passed by the House. Nor would the Judiciary Branch have made a self-contradictory ruling that this is somehow Constitutional. We have a single branch, and it's unaccountable to the other two. No checks, no balances.

Since CONgress refuses to follow the law, that leaves it up to The People. This illegal, morally repugnant "law" is something we must refuse to go along with. Practice civil disobedience to the extent you feel is tolerable. You might also wish to make a pest of yourself to your misrepresentatives so they know how much you do NOT like seeing millions of Americans shafted this way.

The fact that the burden falls primarily on the poor and especially upon blacks (whom Obama seems to particularly despise) is also worth noting and should be pointed out to your misrepresentatives.

The UCA is a failure in so many ways, the Obummer Misadministration has been illegally issuing one patch and exclusion after another. They know it's a failure, but they don't care.

But don't wait for the UCA to simply fall apart; those who inflicted this won't be the ones bearing the burden. What needs to happen is this mislegislation needs to be repealed. Formally, officially, and permanently.

The lower Courts already understand this, which is why the UCA has lost the decision in 91% of court cases that have been decided. So the Judiciary is siding with The People. We need CONgress to do the same. Be unrelenting in letting them know. Call or e-mail them every week; you can find their contact information online, easily enough.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

In past issues, I've talked about the squat in glowing terms. That sentence you just read is exactly how I began this column in the previous issue. Mention the squat to your average gym rat, and they think "leg press." Wrong. That's an isolation exercise, and it comes nowhere close to giving you the benefits squatting does.

Another image people have is the back squat. According to Dr. Frank Zane, a former Mr. Olympia, this is the worst type of squat to do and there's no reason to do it. Dr. Zane is fanatical about front squats, which happen to be my favorite as well.

But there are other types of squats. For example, I follow my front squats sets with sissy squats sets; these target the core in different ways.

When someone is new to training or is just afraid of the idea of "doing squats" I ask them to have a seat. Now, notice something. To sit on a typical chair (or toilet) you do an exercise called the half squat! But you do one half of it to sit down and the other half to get up.

Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle
If you haven't gotten into squatting yet, do this exercise. Go ahead, do a set of five. Sit down, get up. Go that motion down? Next, do them without the chair. But this time, keep going down until your butt about touches your heels. That's a full squat. No weights needed, and you can get a killer workout if you pay attention to what you're doing.

For example, make it a very slow motion going down and then even slower coming up. Suck in your abs, and see how that changes the exercise. Always make sure, however, that you keep your knee from going out over your toe.

I use exactly this exercise when weeding my lawn. This is the same movement Chinese rice growers use when working the paddies, except of course they aren't going slowly up and down. They do this because it's much safer than bending over at the waist.

That's one type of squat. Another type is the prayer squat. This is an interesting variation, because it stretches your anterior and posterior upper leg muscles. That stretch will help prevent muscle imbalance.

It's actually a yoga position. You get into the prayer squat, rather than "do" prayer squats. Here's a link that will let you see how it's done:

The squat is bar none the most beneficial exercise you can do. And, yes, squats do build your knees rather than weaken them. The myth that squats give you bad knees is the opposite of reality, unless you are doing them incorrectly. It's really such a simple exercise, in its basic form. You can do many different variations, depending upon what your goals are.

Though squats in their various forms do work your legs, they are not "a leg exercise." The squat is a compound exercise that involves multiple joints and multiple muscle groups. The deadlift is the only other exercise that comes close to the squat in terms of stimulating the hormonal adaptive response.

The squat is the single best exercise for preventing osteoporosis, building muscle, and losing fat. It also, if done right, gives your heart an excellent workout that joggers can only dream of.


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

Airports at higher  altitudes require a longer airstrip due to lower air  density. Since members of CONgress seem particularly dense, does that mean they are all high?

Given what comes out of Washington, DC (District of Corruption), the answer seems to be either "yes" or "they have to be doing some serious drugs."

8. Thought for the Day

Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves.

Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)
