1. Good News

Item 1. Inmates of penal colonies / communist countries such as the People's Republic of Illinois are finally rejecting the heavy-handed authoritarianism they have endured for decades. The final straw came with the CV-19 related extended draconian shutdowns and de facto house arrest imposed by their communist dictators (aka, "governors"). Unfortunately, the sheeple of these places long ago surrendered their First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Eighth Amendment rights. This means they have a difficult and expensive road ahead of them. People who live in states that actually conform to the rule of law and don't treat the Constitution like toilet paper are already seeing our shutdowns relax and we were never put under house arrest. Perhaps the pain of reclaiming their Constitutional rights will motivate these people to go to the polls this November and reject the criminals like Nancy Pelosi who currently make their lives a living hell.

Item 2. The libtard press is predicting a Joe Biden win in this November's fake election. This is good news, because it will lull the most libtarded of the libtards into complacency. Mr. Biden's dementia has been getting progressively worse this year, and we should feel sorry for him. It's a bad way to go. But that does not take away from the fact that he is the nominee of the Democratic/Communist Party.

This fake "election" is Donald Trump's to lose; that means unless President Trump makes several outrageous failures, he will serve a second term if he wants it. So far, he gets high marks for his handling of the economy, civil liberties, and the CV-19 situation. He gets low marks in some other areas, but only ones that libtards really care about.

It's interesting that the libtards are still trying to paint Trump as a misogynist despite the fact he's married to a strong, intelligent, beautiful woman (and his predecessor was married to an ugly male transvestite) and he has more women in key positions of his administration than his predecessor did. It's also interesting that the libtards are still trying to paint Trump as racist, even though his predecessor's aggressive job destruction policies were felt most heavily by blacks and Trump's own economy-boosting efforts put millions of blacks back to work and often in higher-paying jobs than they had before.

Basically, libtards have one view and reality has another. That's essentially why we call them libtards. And they are predicting a Biden win, so we can all sleep better knowing that is not going to happen.

Item 3. On 21FEB20, Purina announced plans for a $140M expansion of its Clinton, IA pet food factory (not related to the Bill Clinton Crime Cabal). The expansion will add new lines for kibble. This is interesting, because a few years back Purina decided to expand its kibble offerings beyond its traditional toxic corn-based pet "food" poison to instead offer premium-quality grain free kibble such as Purina ONE. The ingredients are of exceptional quality, and the processing preserves both the nutrition and the flavor. This expansion significantly adds capacity to produce One and Pro Plan, both of which have been showing double digit growth year to year. This is good news in multiple ways, including the fact that as pet custodians switch from poison to food for their pets they are also increasingly likely to make that switch for themselves. If you are owned by a pet and have not tried these premium brands, please do so at your earliest opportunities. And after you taste that delicious kibble, be sure to feed it to your pet too!

Item 4. Several high-profile people with medical credentials have pointed out that there's no evidence that starving people to death saves lives. If the governors of communist countries such as The People's Republic of Illinois can comprehend that the people they torment can comprehend that fact, this could be very good news for the victims of those regimes.

3. Brainpower tip

Most health-informed people know that refined sugar causes osteoporosis, adult onset diabetes (even in children), tooth decay, halitosis, and obesity. Did you also know that it causes stupidity? It's true, and that's yet another reason to totally eliminate refined sugar from your diet. Let me remind you that cane sugar is not the only form; this includes all fruit juices, high fructose corn syrup, and wheat flour (even "whole wheat").

Refined sugar causes short-term acute (versus chronic) stupidity by the following mechanism. First, your blood sugar level spikes dangerously high. When this happens, important cells such as nerve cells begin oxidizing. Your body's natural protection against this damage is to pump out as much insulin as it can. The result is the "sugar crash." Your blood sugar is so low your brain lacks the energy to function properly. This is a temporary condition, although if you do it often enough throughout the day you just stay stupid all day long except during those brief sugar spike moments. And eventually you develop insulin sensitivity and then pre-diabetes and then diabetes, after which you develop a condition known as "dead."

Refined sugar causes long-term chronic stupidity by the following mechanism. First, a diet based on this is calorie-dense and nutrient-sparse. This sets up a condition in which you have a constant state of malnutrition. Your brain is an organ, and it needs more than just calories to function properly. The longer you are on a refined sugar diet as an adult, the more brain mass you lose (the body sheds healthy tissue it cannot support). If you are on this diet during developmental years, you develop less brain to begin with so continuing on as an adult with this kind of diet is especially debilitating.

The long-term chronic effects are less severe if refined sugar is merely added to the diet and you are still getting the nutrients. But that is usually not what happens. And here is why. People who eat real food enjoy the taste of it. The unnatural diet based on calorie-dense and nutrient-sparse processed foods (especially refined sugar) requires an acquired taste. People nearly always have one taste preference or the other.

If you've been on the refined sugar diet as far back as you can remember, is it too late to save your brain? No, it's never too late. If you stay on that diet, your IQ will steadily drop. When you stop that diet, you stop the decline. You may even be able to reverse much of the brain loss by eating real food, so your choice is between becoming dumber or possibly becoming smarter. You must also consider that switching to a real food diet means you won't have any episodes of short-term acute stupidity due to sugar crashes.

Keeping your blood sugar stable by eating real food and eliminating refined sugar from your diet will make you feel better, smell better, look better, and think better. There is no downside. Even on a real food diet, you will eventually develop the condition known as "dead". But you will skip the years of agony brought on by diabetes and its complications. Talk about an obviously smart choice!

4. Finance tip

5. Security tip

Package theft has become rampant. Many people try to solve this by:

  • Installing a security camera. This is a good measure, but I have such a camera and someone stole an outgoing package right off my porch.

  • Assigning their cat or dog guard duties. This works as a good supplement to the camera, but is also easily defeated.

  • Working from home. OK, I was doing this plus the other two above when that package got swiped.

  • Having the package delivered to the office (away from your home) where the receptionist can sign for it. A customer of ours did this, but a thief merely posed as an employee and gave a fake signature. It was an $1800 loss for our customer.

UPS now has a free dropoff and pickup program, go to and check it out. Many grocery stores participate. If you have your own business, you can also open a box at any The UPS Store. This gives you a commercial address for your business and a secure way to receive packages (you can have all packages sent there). Using a The UPS Store for your regular mail is also a great way to avoid giving out the address of where you live; the downside is you have to go there and pick up your mail. If you live or work near that location, no problem.

Some people use a The UPS Store or USPS PO Box address to avoid giving out their home address to terrorist organizations such as the IRS. While the idea is good, in practice it does not work. If you pay a mortgage, IRS already has your home address. Also, IRS does not need a court order or any other special permission to get your home address from any service like these. Even before the (anti)Patriot Act, they already had that power. What you want to do to protect yourself from a random, baseless asset seizure by these criminal psychopaths is use a separate checking account in a city other than the one you live in to receive and send all tax-related payments.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

Note that the information provided here will likely conflict with the "fad of the moment" and other unsustainable, unproductive ways of looking at health and fitness.

The Invincible Immune System, Part 2: Food.

This was my first discovery in my quest to go from chronic illness to no illness. I read in Reader's Digest or somewhere when I was 6 or 7, "You are what you eat." So I seriously examined what I was eating. When my 9th birthday was coming up, my mom asked me what kind of cake I wanted and I said cake was junk food and I did not want it.

The vast majority of people don't make the connection between food and health. Here's a simple way to verify that connection. Go to the grocery store and look at people. Then look at what is in their shopping carts. That woman who makes an excellent walking advertisement for Spandex has fresh fruits and vegetables in her cart. Always.

Now look in the shopping cart of the obese woman with the sagging butt. Or look at all the boxes of processed food in the cart of the man with the massive gut hanging over his belt. Nary a fresh fruit or vegetable between the two of them, either.

OK, you say, that does show the correlation between what you eat and how you look. But how is that proof that what you eat determines your immunity to disease?

The difference in appearance is the outward evidence of health. The body is a complex system. It's not the case that you can deprive your body of nutrients and poison it with toxins and expect to be healthy. But is it the case that providing your body with nutrients and "depriving" it of dietary poisons will cause your disease immunity to be exceptional? Yes.

Our bodies are not sitting ducks for disease. They have evolved powerful defenses, and those defenses can defeat any pathogen absent some problem that puts the body at a disadvantage (e.g., chronic stress). Most diseases, conditions, and syndromes that are not attributable to pathogens are also prevented through good nutrition. Your body has natural defenses against these, although in many cases they arise due to lack of needed nutrition (e.g., rickets or scurvy). With good nutrition, you also avoid compromising your body's systems with toxins such as those found in processed foods.

You'll find all kinds of diets that allegedly are healthy. Some clearly are not, despite the hyperbole. How do you figure this all out? It's actually quite simple.

  1. Eat a variety of vegetables. Go heavy on the dark green leafy vegetables. They are dark because they are loaded with nutrients. Supplement these with vegetables of other colors, such as various peppers and squashes. Unfortunately, the most nutrient-dense are also the most attractive to bugs. This means they often have the most pesticides. You can diminish the effect by washing your veggies and by trying to buy and/or grow organic ones.
  2. Eat a variety of fruits and berries. You cannot go wrong here, each one is a superfood. But as with veggies (which are all also superfoods), there's a bug problem. The most nutritious fruits are also the ones most contaminated by pesticides. Remedies include buying organic, removing the peel, and washing.
  3. Eliminate grains such as wheat, corn, and soy. The first two have been modified over thousands of years to be high in sugar and low in anything good. Soy has its own set of problems.
  4. Enjoy grains such as unprocessed rice, unprocessed oats, and the long list of "non-traditional" (but pricey) grains. Just keep grain to a very small proportion of your diet.
  5. Improve flavor and nutrition with herbs. The medicinal value of herbs is undisputed. Enjoy the taste and the improved immunity.
  6. Eat little or no meat. Pesticides and other poisons concentrate in meat. If you buy beef, for example, the glyphosate that was used to grow the corn that fed the cattle is concentrated in the beef. Glyphosate is a powerful neurotoxin.
  7. Eliminate refined sugar, damaged fats/oils (e.g., hydrogenated corn oil), and artificial fats (e.g., margarine).
  8. Buy so-called "organic" eggs. When I was a kid, that's what eggs were. Same for butter.

That's an 8 item list of principles. Yes, you can get much more granular and detailed. For example, I did not discuss nuts and oils. But if you remember and implement these 8 principles, you will have a massive advantage over disease.


Future topics:

The Invincible Immune System, Part 3: Liquids. Most Americans are dehydrated. It's due to a combination of factors. Carrying a bottle of water around is not the answer. I will tell you what is.

The Invincible Immune System, Part 4: Hygiene. This discussion may make some readers uncomfortable, but it's important. I have observed hygiene habits of many people over the years, not to judge but to learn. As a kid, for example, I spit all the time just as my dad did. But I noticed not everyone spit. Could there be a reason? How people wash (or don't), when and with what, all come into play.

The Invincible Immune System, Part 5: Avoidance. This was my second discovery. I had grown up with relatives who drank out of each other's glasses or put their fork into the common serving dish. These and other behaviors needlessly introduce pathogens.

The Invincible Immune System, Part 6: Environment. Do you use bleach or Lysol in your home? These and most cleaning products reduce immunity. How clean are your sheets? How clean is the air you breath indoors?

The Invincible Immune System, Part 7: Nutrients and supplements. Which foods hugely boost immunity and should be focused on during an epidemic? Which vitamins, minerals, and supplements actually work toward strengthening your immune system (hint: Vitamin C is not even close to being the whole story).

The Invincible Immune System, Part 8: Rest, emotional maturity, and mental attitude. Sleep deprivation dramatically lowers immunity, but it is a normal condition for most people. Being emotionally mature is something that does not happen on its own, and for most people it never happens--I'll provide some tips to fix this. The right mental attitude is key, and I'll explain what it is and how to make it the attitude you have.



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

More Americans die each day from refined sugar than from heroin, cocaine, and CV-19 combined. To verify this, you must tally up the deaths from diseases caused by sugar; the stats are reported in a way that hides the truth (thereby proving that lobbying works!).

8. Thought for the Day

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
