Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>lol! "...The ACSH is known as an "industry-friendly" group.[22] In 1982, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), a watchdog and consumer advocacy group, known to spar with ACSH, published an extensive report on ACSH's practices that stated, "ACSH appears to be a consumer fraud; as a scientific group, ACSH seems to arrive at conclusions before conducting studies. Through voodoo or alchemy, bodies of scientific knowledge are transmogrified into industry-oriented position statements."[23] CSPI director Michael F. Jacobson said of ACSH,'"This organization promotes confusion among consumers about what is safe and what isn't... ACSH is using a slick scientific veneer to obscure and deny truths that virtually everyone else agrees with."[24]
In 2004, the now-defunct Tufts University Nutrition Navigator (a rating guide to nutrition websites) gave the ACSH site an overall rating of 20 out of 25 and an "Accuracy of Information" rating of 8 out of 10. However, it commented, "This site aims to arm consumers with the facts necessary to make wise decisions about health, but be aware that the information here is biased and represents a very conservative interpretation of current science. Consumers looking for a balanced debate on health issues will have to look elsewhere."[25]..."
And this "Tufts University Nutrition Navigator" is all-knowing, all-conclusive and has no other agenda, I supppose.

I remember many of those scares in my lifetime.

But people now eat sugar substitutes and eggs like they're going out of style even though they were avoided like the plague during those scares.

Anyone who is "industry-friendly" is under attack these days. It's the new fundamentally transformed America we were promised.

No.

My friend with the Republican family, who fell silent after the election told me that her brother finally had a meltdown at Thanksgiving dinner at the country club and yelled out across the table, pointing at her "And, someone at this table actually voted for Obama, and then his girlfriend added "did you watch that 2016 movie? It's all truuuuue",
Needless to say, the dinner ended and they all left him sitting there like the fool he is.

<quoted text>Have you heard of the charge conspiracy to commit murder? But eventually all charges were dropped because the witness would not testify out of fear. This happened in the nineties. The defendant was guilty of shaking a baby so hard he broke it's leg because the baby would not stop crying. He also killed a man over a poker game as a juvenile and didn't serve one day. It's the same for baby shaking murderers.
I think that poster was shaken as a baby. Suffers from shake and bake syndrome

Never.
Uh, I hate to remind you, but the Twit ended up with 47% of the popular vote.

Rather fitting, after his 47% comments, eh??

Keep talking, Carol.

With folks like you behind them, I'm sure the Republiclowns will lose even more elections going forward. That's a good thing!!

BTW, how's Allen West doing these days?? Why did TP candidates get demolished in the last election??

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Well, as long as abortion and gay marriage are outlawed, then all else is fine. Just sayin....
Abortion will never be outlawed as long as progressive secularism is the new religion.

Gay marriage will eventually become the new definition of societal standards.

Until some crazy person wants to marry his sister just to prove he can under the new definition of marriage.
Yeah

Seek mental health, Carol.

Your ignorance is off the charts.

Fact is, some suger substitutes are not healthy.

Fact is, eggs are dangerous for some people to eat. Esp. those like yourself, who take statins for high cholesterol.

Fact is, you're a fool who's in denial.

Oh yes, Agent Orange; my brother died from exposure to it in Korea.

Ever read about the atrocities and birth defects of children in Iraq after our use of white phosphorous?
Yeah

Be careful. The politcally correct police will soon take away something you enjoy because they know what's best.
It's that slippery slope of Big Brother. It's here and only needs to gain a little more momentum.
Which Big Brother??

The one who wants to outlaw abortions?? The ones who seek to deny women's rights??

You're completely crazy, Carol.

""Egg yolks almost as bad as smoking

RHEANA MURRAY

Friday, August 17, 2012

Think twice before you bite into a hearty breakfast of eggs benedict slathered in hollandaise sauce — you may as well be lighting up, according to a new study.

In terms of cardiovascular risks, the yolk-based sauce that makes the dish so good is almost as bad for you as smoking cigarettes, researchers in Canada found.

“One jumbo chicken egg yolk has about 237 milligrams of cholesterol,” study author Dr. David Spence told CNN.

Spence explains that eating large amounts of cholesterol causes plaque buildup in the blood vessels, the same way smoking does.""

\\--------

I'm glad you smoke, Carol. I'm glad you're overweight. I'm glad you have high cholesterol. I'm glad you have diabetes.

You serve as a bad example to us all. As your health declines, you'll be the one slipping off the oxygen mask to have a puff on your cigarette.

After all, it's not bad for you, right??

Stay in denial. Nature will flush you down the drain early. And you daughter will say "I tried to get Mom to stop abusing her health".

You apparently have no concept of freedom versus political correctness. They are complete opposites. PC is another way to control people through repeated lies and scare tactics. Meant for the easily fooled.

No, not going to lay down, it's a beautiful breezy day and I am going to go to the beach and jog off this Thanksgiving food!! My daughter is home from school for the weekend.

I am against government legislating human behavior.

These are two different issues.

However, I am in favor of the government having in place safety standards against being poisoned by unscrupulous corporations whose only concern is to make a buck, no matter the cost to Americans, or all human beings.

People can still smoke, and drink. Drinking and driving is not illegal, being over the limit is. I'm in favor of legalizing pot too.
I'm not in favor of entrapment by the police regarding drinking and driving, or red light cameras or no knock warrants or random police pulling people over to harrass them.
The various things you mentioned have nothing to do with the President or national politics. Those are all local issues, school board issues, usually being brought forth by parents (re school lunches, soft drinks etc)

Exactly whose rights is he fighting for Lily?

The rights of women to kill their unborn?
The rights of manipulators to manipulate a broken system?
The rights of progressive secularists to silence Christians?
The rights of the unemployed to rely on big government?
The rights of have-nots to take from those who have?

Or are you talking about other rights I'm missing?

A lot of things aren't healthy but are only harmful in massive amounts.

It's common sense. Something you lack.
