1. Good News

Item 1. The Evil Empire, aka, "Google" has been hit with Europe's largest ever antitrust fine ($5 billion). While they can buy judges in the lawless "court" system of the USA, Europe is much more advanced in terms of rule of law so that strategy didn't work there. Perhaps the top dogs at Google will get the message that they don't have a free pass to engage in unethical conduct. That would be very good news indeed, considering the extent of Google's transgressions.

Read the full story here:

Item 2. Both Illinois and Ohio now present voters with a choice at "election" time. Rather than being forced to either abstain or vote in favor of crime as usual, they can now vote in the affirmative for the rule of law and for the civil liberties made possible by the rule of law.

Read the full story at Now that voters of these two states are empowered to send the criminal class a strong message to stop robbing them blind, let us hope they use that power the next time they are at the ballot box.

Item 3. The Ninth Circuit Court, which has a long and checkered history of treating any copy of the Constitution as if it's merely toilet paper, in a rare (for them) bout of sanity actually ruled FOR civil liberties. Read the full story here:

Item 4. While the Ninth Circuit Court is noted for such things as backing the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths despite zero legal basis for their rulings, other federal courts actually look at the evidence and try to make a lawful ruling. Here's a good news example of that:

3. Brainpower tip

Why modern music sounds so awful:

4. Finance tip

The single biggest cost you have is government. There's nothing wrong with government per se. But you can get too much of a good thing (or, as is often the case, a bad thing). We have so much government that it's a bigger expense for most families than food, shelter, clothing, and transportation combined.

Government costs include direct ones such as taxes. We have an absurdly high number of taxes. Most are small ones that add up, but there are some big ones too. The inflation tax is the single largest tax most people pay, yet most people have no clue what inflation is. They believe it is an increase in prices, which it most certainly is not.

Government costs also include indirect ones such as regulatory compliance. Where government is exercising its legitimate purpose, these costs are (mostly) unavoidable and can be seen more as an investment than a cost. But most (federal) government actions are illegal and serve no legitimate purpose. For example, the high cost of the idiotic war on drugs has burdened us with a massive and very expensive prison system. We have 5% of the world's population but more than 50% of its prison population. Every time I hear someone call the USA the land of the free, I am hearing a person who is deaf and blind to reality.

Government costs also include hybrids of the two. For example, the world's most feared terrorist organization employs people who are paid government salaries. They "work" in government office buildings (actually, the GAO found they spend half their office time visiting porn and gambling sites). The excuse given for funding them is they manage the 1040 tax system. But they will spend $3 million to collect $12,000 in taxes that the collection target does not even owe (those numbers are not hypothetical, they are pulled from an actual case).

Because of this terrorist group, many companies have an entire floor of accountants, attorneys, and others whose job it is to fend off abusive agents. All of the tax filing games, legal battles, and other measures taken by individuals and companies to prevent or respond to an IRS attack cost money and those costs are called compliance costs.

These costs are estimated to be 15 to 18 times greater than the money collected via the 1040 system. Now think about what that means. It's a massive tax that results in zero revenue. Simply abolishing the 1040 system would result in an economic boom of massive proportions. With all of the other taxes the federal government already has in place, eliminating the one revenue-negative tax would mean a big increase in federal revenue. Everyone, including the federal government, would have more money. The only reason this has not happened is the vast majority of people are clueless on this issue so they don't push for things to change.

So what's the tip, here? Don't be oblivious to the staggering cost of government. Know the costs in taxation and the negative economic effects of government conduct at your city, county, state, and federal levels--and speak up. What happens in many cities, including the one in which I reside, is so irrationally wasteful it's shocking. Most of my fellow victims in this city choose to be uninformed or disinformed, so the looting continues.

There's no reason we can't cut the cost of government by 75% or more with no loss of services. Most of what government provides is not services, it's stealing. The stealing can be stopped, but we as a people need to start caring about it. Become informed, and get involved. You don't have to make that a part-time job, but do set aside some time to know what's going on and speak up against things that are wasteful or illegal.

Of course, when I say "become informed" I don't mean "become disinformed." Eliminate the legacy media from your life, as a first step. If you've already done that, consider yourself a good example for others.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

The fact you are reading this means you care about your health.

The fact you are reading this in English (unless you are reading a translated version) also means something. In all probability, you live in a country in which nearly 70% of the citizens are on at least one prescription drug. That country is the United States of America.

Some people need a prescription drug due to a condition that is not of their choosing and is not their fault. But the vast majority of those on prescription drugs are doing so because they chose the disease lifestyle.

Try to visit several people who are retirement age (over 65) and still living in their home. You'll find some on no drugs. But you'll find most on multiple drugs.

Drugs are most commonly prescribed for:

  1. Pain.
  2. High cholesterol.
  3. High blood pressure.
  4. Hypothyroidism
  5. Gastroesophegal Reflux Disease (GERD)
  6. Infection.
  7. Type II diabetes.

Let's look more closely at these.

Pain. This is a wide category. In addition to people who have no pain through no fault of their own are the "health nuts" or "jocks" who abused their bodies through a misguided sense of fitness (joggers and people like Ronnie Coleman come to mind). And, of course, people who "enjoy" the disease lifestyle.

High cholesterol. This is almost entirely due to the grain-based diet that is core to the disease lifestyle. It is not from eating eggs, avocadoes, and other foods with healthy fats; indeed, those fats are necessary for cardiovascular health.

High blood pressure. Poor stress management is often a cause of this, but there are many other factors. The vast majority of sufferers are in the disease lifestyle. You see very few cases among properly conditioned, correct-eating athletes. In fact, athletes have a much lower resting pulse rate and lower resting blood pressure than "normal" people do. The disease lifestyle is very hard on the cardiovascular system, so it is a huge risk factor for high blood pressure.

Hypothyroidism is strongly linked to the disease lifestyle, because that lifestyle involves severe disruption of the body's various chemical systems (including adrenal and endocrine). Perhaps many of these cases would be solved with health care, rather than just treating the symptoms with medical care.

GERD and soft-drink consumption are causally related, with the latter being the cause. The rise of soft drink consumption, when charted against the rise in esophageal cancer, fits like hand in glove. It's the acid reflux damage that causes the cancer. This cancer was once very rare, and today it is very common. GERD isn't cancer, but chronic GERD greatly increases your esophageal cancer risk.

Infection. The disease lifestyle practitioner has a much harder time fighting infection than a health care practitioner does. The former is suffering from both malnutrition and toxicity already, both before and during the infection. Though it's true that anyone can get an infection, the person with the disease lifestyle will suffer greater consequences from one and is likely to need a more potent (less safe) drug regimen to fight it.

Type II diabetes is entirely diet-driven. We have an "epidemic" of it today, and prescription drugs cannot possibly counter the effects of the disease lifestyle that causes the diabetes the drugs are prescribed for. They can help a disease lifestyle person better endure the symptoms, but the cure is the same as the prevention: a health care lifestyle.

While it does not follow that everyone on one or more prescription drugs is taking them as a consequence of the disease lifestyle, it is true that most Americans now on prescription drugs are on them because they chose (and usually continue to choose) the disease lifestyle.

Just eliminating soda pop (esophageal cancer in a can) and WCS (wheat, corn, soy) from your diet will protect you from two items on that list (GERD and adult onset diabetes) while also greatly eliminating how much #1 (pain) you'll be in.

All seven of those conditions are exacerbated by the disease lifestyle, and all seven are at least somewhat ameliorated through health care (taking care about your health through the choices you make in food, exercise, sleep, and mental attitude).

Many people mired in the disease lifestyle try to persuade those in the health care lifestyle to switch to the disease lifestyle. And they often do that in ways that are not nice. Others mired in the disease lifestyle look at those practicing health care and tell us things like "I'd like to have your level of energy" or "I wish I had your will power" or something along those lines. Most of them are simply afraid that the disease lifestyle people are going to criticize them if they start caring for their health.

You can help both groups, first by not wavering in your commitment to health. Then help them to see the consequences that so many disease lifestyle people suffer from. Just counting the prescription drugs can be a real eye opener. And things like having surgery for esophageal cancer or losing your toes to adult onset diabetes certainly are not fun.

Keeping the prescription drug "epidemic" in mind can help us see the disease lifestyle for what it really is. And perhaps help others trade that in for a sensible, healthy lifestyle.


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

Young Barrack Hussein Obama was adopted by Lolo Soetoro, and as part of the adoption his name was legally changed to Barrack "Barry" Soetoro. If there is any court record that he ever reversed this, nobody seems able to find it. Thus the man who was allegedly born in Hawaii while his mother certainly was not there at the time was--during his eight years as POTUS--operating under an alias instead of using his legal name.

8. Thought for the Day

If you're trying to have a discussion with a person who wants to have an argument and that person attacks you instead of your position (ad hominem attack), that person has just ceded the argument. Smile and say thanks.
