1. Good News

Item 1. Trump defeated Hillary. Yes, that's old news. But it is the best news this nation has had in a very, very long time. Repeating it just feels good.

Item 2. Graphene, again. Some really good news. The URL is descriptive enough, so I'm providing just that:

Item 3. And here's some good news about li-ion batteries:

Item 4. The manufacturing sector of the US economy is not what it used to be, but there has been good news over the past few years. With the jobless rate among working age adult Americans at 54%, manufacturers are finding they can find people to work in USA plants for modest (not bad, but not great) wages. Finding workers who can pass a basic skills test is another challenge, but such people are out there. So instead of just sending everything to China, some companies opt to build things here. Even some foreign automakers have moved key production here. Also good news.

I watch the construction reports in EC&M Magazine, and see that quite a few manufacturing facilities are built each year. Most are rather modest in size. For example, Blue Buffalo recently broke ground on a new manufacturing facility in tiny Richmond, Indiana. That facility will provide jobs for about 165 workers, and then of course there will be the "support jobs" around the community for the services those new hires need.

So there are bright spots (in what is overall not a very good picture) and that's good news. Several sources reported to me earlier this year that if the nation went into the sewer on November 8th, their clients would move significant manufacturing offshore but if Trump won they would add to what they have here. So more good news.

Item 5. Only 7 more weeks left of Barry Soetoros's War on the Poor.

Item 6. Only 7 more weeks left of Barry Soetoros's War on the Middle Class.

Item 7. Only 7 more weeks left of Barry Soetoros's Reverse Robinhood for the Rich Program.

Item 8. Only 7 more weeks left of Barry Soetoros's "Fundamental Transformation" of America vis a vis:

  • More than doubling the national debt.
  • Doubling the jobless rate.
  • Making poverty so bad that 70% of American children are officially classified as "hunger insecure".
  • Massively increasing inflation (it's a form of theft).
  • Aggressively fomenting racism.
  • Destroying our international standing.
  • Facilitating the Muslim invasion.
  • Making medical care unaffordable.
  • Systematically eliminating lawful government wherever it exists.

...among other things, but I don't want to depress you by listing all of them. An 8-year long assault of insanity, debauchery, and destruction is coming to a close. The finish line is finally in sight.


2. Product Highlight

3. Brainpower tip

The idiocy advocacy system that passes for "mainstream journalism" has not had any credibility with me since my early adult years when, as a nuclear power plant worker, I read the most dishonest bit of "reporting" I had seen to that time.

It was about the plant, and it was not only wrong on every point made, it was written with histrionics. The article even featured an interview with some 10 year old kid (clearly an expert, right?) who said the "fumes coming out of the plant" where "scary and mysterious." What the kid was talking about was the water vapor from the cooling towers, water that never goes through the reactor system.

I've mentioned many times in this column that eliminating exposure to the mainstream media is essential to being a well-informed person. The trash peddled by those folks does not make you informed, it makes you misinformed.

When the nation dodged a bullet (more like a mass missile attack) this last November 8, part of the fallout for this failed attempt at libtard domination is the widespread disgust with, and distrust in, the mainstream media. I prefer "mudstream media" because it's more descriptive and nothing in the world view of the libtarded media is mainstream. It's all alternate universe stuff. The lies the libtarded media spewed at people were intellectually insulting and cut the thin cord of trust that once tethered so many people to these media.

The nonsense spewing libtards who dominate "journalism" cannot see any viewpoint other than their own narrow, stupid, ignorant, irrational one. The job of a libtarded journalist is to view everything through a distorted, fact-free lens and then spew balderdash as a way of spreading the libtard infection. The idea is to infect others, like people with herpes having sex just to spread the disease except libtards try to screw with your mind.

One libtard-dominated magazine printed a special edition for its election results stories. They featured Madam Psycho on the cover. The problem of course, is reality intervened and their delusions of stupidity reigning supreme did not come to fruition.

These libtards could not conceive of the idea that an oppressed people, tired of endless corruption, frequent scandals, brazen lawlessness, and rampant theft (not to mention the destruction of the economy, vast increase in poverty and homelessness, etc.) would object to a lying psycho bee yotch who wants them all disarmed and who proposed a federal budget that would make the economy far sicker than it is now.

It's a very sick economy, too. Part of Barry Soetoro's legacy is as he prepares to leave office (at long last), is that 70% of American children are officially "hunger insecure." What he has done to this country is enormously negative. Hillary was preaching more of the same destructive policies.

But the libtards have rejoiced in Soetoro's "accomplishments" (in English, an accomplishment is something positive; in libtardese, destruction and accomplishment are synonymous). And they were looking forward to more of the same regression of civilization into insanity. The were sure that the people with whom they are totally out of touch felt the same way.

To their limited minds, a Hillary win was inevitable. In their irrational alternate reality, it was somehow a good thing too:

  • More starving children. Yay!
  • More violent crime. Yay!
  • More inflation. Yay!
  • More unemployment. Yay!

Why they find great value in these outcomes, I have no idea. They also have a fondness for cops being killed. And of course, the love their pet project: keeping racism alive.

What is the proper response to all this insanity? Well, I do not subscribe to any mudstream publications (I do subscribe to many journals, trade magazines, and other specialized magazines). But if I did, I would cancel my subscriptions and strongly encourage others to do so as well. This is how we stop the libtard infection via these standardless spewings of deceit and stupidity. It's called boycotting by some. I call it "not supporting psychopaths."

If you consider that the effective IQ of a libtard can be expressed only in negative numbers, just think of how the average effective IQ would rise nationwide if we could stop just this one rather large source of stupidity.

Then, dear reader, instead of using so much of your brainpower dealing with the messes created by libtards, you'd have more to devote to fulfilling your career and personal goals. Or just enjoying life.

Let's not only personally boycott the mudstream media, but shame, coerce, and convince other people to do so as well. If you see someone self-infecting stupidity via self-exposing to a copy of the New York Times, don't just stand there. Do something about it!

4. Finance tip

The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit an all-time high two days after a relieved nation watched the defeat of Hillary in her bid for dictator. The DJIA has been mostly climbing ever since.

Granted, the DJIA isn't representative of the market overall; it's an index of 30 stocks. But it is a fairly reliable bellwether. It means that stockholders no longer lie awake at night sweating out the future.

Here are some things it doesn't mean:

  • Good times are necessarily ahead. There's a difference between being spared from the firing squad and living the good life. Hillary's feat means we were spared the firing squad. It does not follow that Trump's win means we'll soon be in deep clover. The damage done by Soetoro is so deep and devastating, Mr. Trump is starting in a very, very deep hole. A $20 trillion deep debt hole, for starters.
  • You should buy stocks with whatever money you can raise. Don't try to jump onto a trend. Buy stocks if you know what you are doing, and trust me most people only think they know what they are doing.
  • The economy is turning around. The DJIA, I remind you, is an index of 30 stocks in the casino known as The New York Stock Exchange. It in no way reflects the health of the economy. We have an extremely sick economy at this time, so sick that 70% of American children are officially "hunger insecure" and so sick that our actual (versus the official) unemployment rate is 54%. Mr. Trump faces incredible odds when it comes to turning this economy around. Think of the Titanic, just as water begins to wash over the deck.

So don't get careless. Keep your financial planning and fiscal discipline strong. Yes, celebrate the New Hope that is Mr. Trump. Yes, celebrate the end of the 8 year reign of a ruthless, destructive, narcissistic psychopath who hates America and who kept his promise to "fundamentally transform" the country. He's transformed it in the way a wrecking ball transforms a building. The economy is trashed possibly beyond repair. But Trump may be the guy who can fix that.

Did you know that Mr. Trump has an IQ of 156? (That's almost as high as mine). That IQ puts him at three standard deviations from the mean. There's as much difference between Mr. Trump and someone who just qualifies for Mensa (the high IQ Society, in which all members are certified geniuses) as there is between a person of normal intelligence and a person who is officially "Retarded." That is significant. He's at the "uber-genius" level, a genius-squared.

And we know Soetoro is pretty stupid, in addition to being truly hating America and showing that in what he did to the country. Trump is quite the contrast, and thus the high levels of hope for a nation that's weary of the devastation. But don't start counting the chickens until the eggs are hatched.

5. Security tip

Virtually all mass shootings occur in "gun free" zones. Draw your own conclusions.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

The holiday season is when the typical American adds an additional 10lbs of body fat that takes about 16 months to get rid of. Do the math. This is main way in which most people in the USA tend to grow fatter with the passing years.

Most of this is so-called "social eating" with traditional holiday "treats" and grossly oversized servings.

Of course, many people make poor dietary decisions each day. But for those of you who behave all year long only to have those efforts defeated by the annual holiday binge, here's some advice to help you win the battle of the bulge.

  • Try substituting traditional items with less calorie-dense ones. For example, instead of the traditional turkey stuffing that's mostly bread try something made from mashed garbanzo beans (chick peas). Yeah, I know, too late for Thanksgiving. Sorry.
  • Agree to a "no desert" menu at the main gathering. Can't do it? Then at some other gathering.
  • Be proactive and creative in coming up with less damaging deserts. Talk with other people about the problem. "Look, we don't want to be fat sickly so that we lose our independence in old age. Let's agree to coming up with tasty deserts that don't give us diabetes and heart disease."
  • Note that mixed nuts, while calorie-dense (and expensive) do not pack the insulin whallop that pastries and candies do. Try to satisfy munchies with healthy fats, instead of endocrine modifiers.
  • Use 8-inch dinner plates, instead of 10-inch ones. You may have to buy these. They don't have to be expensive, plain white glass plates are acceptable.
  • For your own self, decide ahead of time that you will not heap your plate and will not go back for seconds. This could be tough. Make the decision and stick to it.
  • Don't entertain thoughts about "walking it off." An average person can expect to burn 200 calories per hour walking. If you gobble down and extra thousand calories, very easy to do, of rich foods and deserts at a single meal then you need to walk for 5 hours. Think that'll happen? What if you do this at two meals in a day, and snacks later on?
  • If you are going into a "high calorie situation," try to budget those calories. That means cut back both before and after by the amount of excess calories you could reasonably be expected to consume.
  • Don't worry if you slip a little; the anxiety could cause you to over eat!

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

The enamel in your teeth is the hardest substance in your body. Unless you're a libtard, in which case that useless lump inside your cranial cavity is as hard as cement.

8. Thought for the Day

People who choose to actively think have abilities that other people don't even know exist (and wouldn't understand, if they did know). Think about it.
