It's the Guns, Stupid

“And that's the end of the issue”

Why do we have the same futile argument every time there is a mass killing? Advocates of gun control try to open a discussion about whether more reasonable weapons statutes might reduce the number of violent ... via Truthdig

Thank you for the information. I had a physical a few weeks ago and had blood work done, but will repeat the blood test in April and she will decide about a statin. Tried Niacin (Niaspan) and had a pretty bad reaction to it. Sigh.

I should imagine you have allready done so, but have you looked at your diet and the oils within it,,,seeing a doctor to discover the condition of our bodies from time to time is good, but the information gained can then be taken to a good nutritionist/dietician and utilized,,Im not suggesting you do, but popping pills and putting money in the pockets of drug companies may not be the answer. If unsure of who to go to for advise on any matter,,I ask others and look at the results they achieved,,some times diplomas arent worth the paper their written on.

Lithuania today you Fraud.....anyway that is not where you are would be just fine..and I couldn't be in a better place..
The PROBLEM for YOU dearie, is that YOU are STUCK in your 'paradise,' whereas I may be wherever I desire, simply by the toss of a 'pair of dice.'
Mobility, my dear, affords me the very greatest degree of latitude.

<quoted text>
It is very important to remember that there are two types of cholesterol: LDL, and HDL. The LDL is produced by hydrogenated vegetable oils, margarines, and other oils which should not be used in anything, especially high heat cooking.
With the exception of olive oil, all the other 'modern,' i.e.,'manufactured'/highly processed, cooking oils should be avoided like the plague!
Heating olive oil changes its structure, causing it to lose nutritional content, and may be implicated in adverse health effects in long-term consumption.
The two oils which ARE highly recommended for high heat cooking (such a frying), are red palm oil, and coconut oil. Red palm oil is supreme, tastes great, and is the highest in vitamins A & E. Both these oils are highly nutritious, imparting excellent health benefits.
The importance of HDL cholesterol in the body simply cannot be overstated, because it is absolutely necessary for many bodily processes, and for brain health. A goodly portion of the brain is made of HDL cholesterol, and any attempt to lower ALL cholesterol is asking for trouble big time.
The LDL cholesterol is the one which is responsible for hardening of the arteries (arterial plaque), and the leading cause of both heart attacks and strokes.
The bottom line: If it's not red palm oil, or coconut oil, avoid it like the plague. Use olive oil for low temperature cooking only, of for salad dressings.
Thanks Doc, intersting and helpfull info, I had a feeling you would comment.

How am I a hypocrite ???? show me were I use the language you do.
When another poster mentions their conscience whilst swearing at the same time pet, then I will question them. If you had controlled yourself then it's obvious I would not have remarked on it,,,,it was after all the only comment I made regarding your post,,,show me the bias from an imagined mouthpiece there,,,after all, NO one else seems to care. I understand that the enviroment we find ourselves in can often have an adverse effect on behaviour and language,,however, swearing does nothing to reinforce a point in any debate, and can even make one look weak. Apart from the odd loon that rears it's head here from time to time, I give serious thought to all of the posts,,there are actually some valid points raised from both sides of the debate, yours included. In my humble opinion where you let your self down, is coming across as a yank basher at the same time as trying to make constructive and informed comments.
Now you are a hypocrite and an idiot....I clearly state and I quote..." you don't use the language ok" what's it like to have to have mud on your face because you failed to read the message in full?
You are a hypocrite because I don't see you whinging about all the others that have used language or sexist remarks on this site which if you were fair you would do that, so that clearly makes you a BIASED hipocrite....I bash yanks because they deserve a bashing....if they can dish it out they should have the coglione's to take it....else they are just hypocrite's as well.....You might give thought to all the post but you certainly aren't free of bias or ganging up.....Who needs to be told they are a good little boy then to make himself feel loved and accepted....arachnid does.

No, most likely you will still be home in front of your computer scoffing down take away food and getting a lard arse (something yanks are known for) in downtown nowhere America, bouncing off satelites while you ponder the futility of your existence, you dumb troll....And yes I do live in paradise so much so....that when I see what is out there (on the rare occassions that I have travelled, it is so depressing that I am just so thankful that I was born in the best country on earth....

Are you saying, a person shouldn't take a statin?
Statin can have bad side effects,,not all cholesterol is bad, infact we need it. I think the Doc is saying there may be a better way, perhaps with less reliance on man made drugs.

It would seem it is you that either cannot read, or lacks the ability to comprehend the message,,YOU decided to mention CONSCIENCE whilst swearing,,the hypocrisy is yours, the idiocy I can't help you with,,as for the mud pet,it would be you that plasters her face with that stuff. Did you know that lipstick was originally made with oils or fats extracted from human excrement.
I would appreciate it, IF YOU CAN, show me where anyone, has called me good or bad, or infact expressed love or acceptance towards me. The fact that I hold similar views to others is what irks you. Most yanks can trace their heritage back to the UK as can most Aussies,,,the mind set for the defence of ones self therefore came from here in the first place,,and previous to that, the Normans,Romans,Vikings etc, etc.

There are better countries than both australia and the UK,, So you can only be refering to people. I have spent time in a number of countries and have found good and bad in all. Alot depends on the vibes you put out as to the reaction you get pet.

About the rock on the stick...
The indians were able to kill enormous buffalo with the dinky rock on the stick.
You were saying...
Rocks on Sticks to kill cattle?

They didn't have slaughter houses yet...

And by the way they could treat today the cattle much much better....

Indians aren't killing cattle anymore like that either where's the Evolution in it?

Did they create House for slaughter to make a situation better to not have to use a Rock to bash it to death or something?

I mean if not why don't they do that in the fields??

Its unfortunate that trying to irritate people is your idea of fun, I had'nt realised that was your bag. I don't think it is neccesarily a bad thing, just sad for you pet. At least you speak your mind truthfully and let all know were you stand, or fall.
Oh,,and please be explaining,,,, GOTTA WARNED YOU ABOUT ME AND YET AND NONE OF YOU TOOK HEED BECAUSE YOU THINK YOU KNOW BETTER.
That does'nt make sence,,would you like me to send a decent cook book,,dam it, was'nt going to mention that. WOULD you like me to send you a phrase book,,perhaps as a christmas gift, I could allso include a shaker that works.

Just to say that sounds pretty EGOISH I came to a conclusion today not for you to take heed and not stand out What's the word Confrontational you do come across as that a stand up guy hu?

So not to bust your chops or anyhing but I think Ego trips are only done by stupids to the need of feeling the POWER...Lame as all can be Philosophically thinking an Ego wouldn't need to be bousting fluff uff now would it?

To when it one does it seems then stupid having to like one should stand tall without it...

Also you spelled allso wrong...

How do you speak I wonder....

Tried to decipher again.

Are you trying to tell me that I am egotistical confrontational requiring of power, but stupid,,,and that nice people are'nt like that. Well that's okay, we all have our opinions.
Pet is a Geordie term used as an affection,,,Aho reminds me of a lass I knew years ago that loved to argue come what may. She could swear like a trooper and had a terrific left hook.

Gotta, is Gottaliv...she posted and asked what in the world I was doing on on this thread, and to stop prodding you guys, probably because it is below the intelligence level of witless noong I usually bait, you know Aussies and a few idiot trolls...no one either bothered to read her post or bothered to adhere to her message...either, either, your funeral.

I am well aware of the fact that you did not accuse me of swearing, I rubber stamped your comment because you called me a hypocrite for not condemming others,,my point, as we are both aware was to do with your use of the word conciense, whilst swearing. If someone else uses those two words together, then I will point it out,,I have no doubht you will avoid trying to talk your way out of that particular point. If you are bothered by the sexist remarks of others, I am afraid I can do little about it, other than to say it weakens any point they may be trying to make, including points that may be factual,,it moves the spot light away, so to speak, from what might otherwise have been a good post. There is a judging system here,,I dont know if you have noticed but I do not use it myself. Earlier in another post you made a comment about scoring points, you felt you were winning, as you seem to be keeping score, how am I doing ?
