When you say “Death to America!” and then get deported.

So this Iranian college kid got deported. The anti-America-corrosive ACLU (Read: No christianity in the public eye, but don’t tread on Muslim rights to be in the public space) and Elizabeth Warren (as well as Irans foreign PM) think *international* law* protects his right to agitate like a guy on the ground in Iran, or an American citizen. This guy was neither. He’s an Iranian non-citizen with a week-old Visa IN America, shooting his mouth off on social media. Oh to be 20 again! So foolish.
Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren believes Iranian *non* citizens with *brand new* Visas who threaten America on social media should be allowed to stay in America.
And she gets to run for President?
I hope her ignorant, illogical and feelings-based commentaries are remembered well if she is ever considered to lead America. She’s already a humiliating example of un-discerning thought and lack of appropriate temperance and judgment as a Senator.
*The Constitution would protect any opinion the kid had, if he were a citizen.

Off-limits and very tempting

Half of a spring rolls left over from last night. It’s pretty much a little bit of carbs and some lettuce but I’m not eating that because it’s not protein and it is mostly carbs what little there is but there it sits tempting me to pick it up and eat it but I will not for I am stronger than that!

Railroaded, Legally Smeared @ Taxpayer Expense.

Impeachment? By Democrats. Will sway some voters. Could prevent Trump from even running. Democrats: Costs no money, no consequences, can only help. Lead Democrat in House, Nancy Pelosi, is allowed to pick 100% Democrat prosecutors from the House. Republicans not represented.
“Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday named seven Democratic members of the House of Representatives as managers of the chamber’s case in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial.”

“They present the case on behalf of the House of Representatives on why the president should be convicted and removed from office and in this case also disqualified from ever holding future office,” Tribe told Al Jazeera.

Better hurry, so the Democrat nominee doesn’t have to face an incumbent!
No no no, some people think this is actually over some malfeasance, and not about the election. I wish I was as insulated from anger by that naiveté.

Why is insulin such a bitch?

Why is insulin such a bitch?

Insulin can drive addiction because it antagonizes your dopamine centers centers in your brain. It has a strong impact on satiety, and when you have an insulin surge it makes you sleepy because it’s pressing on receptors for dopamine.

Over the years, if you run lots of sweets and high insulin levels, you develop more and more receptors for those and when you cut back on glucose you cut back on insulin and you have more receptors than the average person crying out for their fix.

One of the problems with sweetened beverages is that when your brain registers sweet taste, it releases a modicum of insulin. We like that, it feeds our starving receptors, it impacts our dopamine centers, it makes us feel good.

For those of us who have had enough sugar and high enough insulin long enough, when we get an insulin surge we get a corresponding endorphin release as we are “satisfying a craving.“

But, unfortunately as well, when we get the taste of sweetness whether it’s real or artificial, our insulin level comes up, and it is impossible to unlock fat stores while your insulin levels are high.

Insulin is fat protective. As long as you have high insulin levels, you will be unable To access your fat for energy.

So even while you are not eating carbohydrates, as long as you are consistently tasting sweet things whether aspartame or not, your insulin levels will not subside.

Anytime your insulin levels subside, you start to push “unsatisfied addiction brain centers” and things get really hangry.

Don’t worry, be happy

This morning I was driving to work and I was thinking about how dogs are so “in the moment” that, within reason, they don’t get burdened by things that are “going on” unless they demand instant attention. Their goal is really to “be happy”.

We should be more like dogs.

But what triggered me to write this down was my thoughts about business and finances and retirement and having enough money to go around. And I think, everything is worked out so far. I’m doing the best I can. I approach everything with as much integrity as I can bring. I’m doing my best to enjoy life at no one else’s expense.
