    Beef is healthier than Chicken! 

    If you were ever curious which was healthier Beef or Chicken, you would probably get a misleading or wrong answer!

    I did a quick search on google and it presented me with this tidbit of information:



    Let’s examine the Myths!

    Myth #1.  Fat is bad for you.

    Myth #2.  Cholesterol is a cause for heart disease.


    I like to start my topics with a bit of arrogance.  Chances are you are improperly educated. :^)

    That’s because what we are taught – is false.  Many prestigious doctors and health experts have spoken up regarding these myths.  Still, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.  Once people go through a formal “health education” – they are never wrong.  So you cannot convince them about health.  I recommend that people don’t just blindly accept everything your teacher, doctor, or nurse tells you, investigate for yourself – trust but verify!

    Skinless white meat chicken is normally considerably lower in calories, cholesterol, and saturated fat than most cuts of beef. On the other hand, beef normally contains more potassium, zinc, and choline than chicken.




    The American Heart Association recommends eating more chicken than red meat based on the fact that excessive red meat consumption has been shown to raise the risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer.

    Well how much of this statement is actually true by the AHA?

    One thing I want to point out here is the use of the word excessive.  That word is a qualifier, if you remove that word will this sentence becomes less true?

    Just to quantify this a little bit, everything you can consume in excess is harmful. So there needs to be a better correlating statement issued by the AMA.

    After-all I have already pointed out Myth #2 – Cholesterol is a cause for heart disease. (It’s not!)

    Let’s dig a little deeper, but while we are at it, we are going to Trust but Verify!


    So in the spirit of Ronald Regal lets proceed.

    I did a quick search for: “american heart association cancer red meat” and clicked the first (usually most relevant link)

    Let’s read,

    “Processed red meat commonly contains sodium, nitrates, phosphates and other food additives, and smoked and grilled meats also contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, all of which may contribute to the increased heart failure risk,” said Alicja Wolk, D.M.Sc., senior author of the study and professor in the Division of Nutritional Epidemiology at the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden“Unprocessed meat is free from food additives and usually has a lower amount of sodium.”

    The Cohort of Swedish Men study — the first to examine the effects of processed red meat separately from unprocessed red meat — included 37,035 men 45-79 years old with no history of heart failure, ischemic heart disease or cancer.


    First, I would like to point out that the correlations made in this article were purely statistical.  There is no reason for me not to trust that research, but apparently, I have no reasonable way of verifying it.

    Though, I would like to point out the problem with statistics:

    Second, they aren’t correlating this to cholesterol? AH HA!

    So what your saying is that PROCESSED red meat is more unhealthy than chicken?  But we can choose to eat unprocessed meats…  Aren’t unprocessed chicken and beef options both worth considering?

    Since the question we are really trying to answer is which is better, can’t we consider both unprocessed beef and chicken? Let’s rephrase our question:

    Which is healthier Unprocessed Beef or Unprocessed Chicken?  Well apparently, unprocessed beef cannot be linked to heart disease, and since it has more potassium, zinc, and choline than chicken it would seem to have the upper hand.

    Granted it seems unfair that I did not take time to explain the Myths, but that I’m afraid, I’ll have to do another day 😊

    What do I think about DACA? 

    What do I think about DACA?

    Today I was asked that question, but I didn’t take much time to think about it.  I heard rumblings in the news and saw a consistent flow of memes being posted on my Facebook.  So I knew of it but I really hadn’t put much thought into it.  I was even surprised to see that Facebook was suggesting this as a political view before I even knew much about it.

    It seems very obsessive of Facebook to suggest labeling me with left-oriented politics, I would be offended to have this posted on my wall.  Not because I have made up my mind about DACA but because this is just an angle that the main stream media is playing to make Trump’s program for America seem like a downward spiral, and to oppose all conservative politics.

    But I am even more offended that we live in an age where companies have enough power to control ideas, Facebook and YouTube are helping left-oriented ideas flourish, while suppressing conservative ideas.  This is an Information war being waged on the world, and the struggle is over your mind.

    YouTube for example has been doing a mass demonetizing of videos on YouTube, and many people are complaining.  If one of your videos contain what they consider to be “politically incorrect”, all of your videos will get demonetized.  And I have seen many instances where the decision to demonetize videos was wholly unjustified, and seemed to serve a deep state agenda.  Personally, I believe this is all part of the deep state agenda to portray patriotism as racism, because patriots are what constitutes Trump’s base.

    But what about DACA?  Well I haven’t really looked into it that deeply, I have watched a few episodes of Tucker, and Hannity who I pretty much align with 90% of the time.  For example, Katherine Mangu-ward a DACA supporter interviewed on Tucker

    Her position is that DACA – “Dreamers” help make America Great by stimulating growth.  Perhaps there is truth is some of that but when Tucker asked the question, “Should you prefer to Hire an American, over an Illegal immigrant” – if they are both equally qualified?

    Katherine’s response was in my opinion a non sequitur – relating to protectionist policies and jobs overseas being not morally distinguishable from domestic jobs.  Well I would tend to disagree with that on several fronts, and in my opinion you should absolutely prefer American workers first.  In-fact I would prefer that all people abusing Obama’s DACA policies be fired from their current position and their jobs be given to people who are currently here on a H1B or other related Visa status.

    I would also like to point out that because the immigrants are here Illegally, whether it’s by choice or not, if they were working, thereby stimulating the economy, that stimulating effect, would be artificial, because of the fact that they ARE illegal, and will probably one day likely be deported anyway whether or not the laws go into effect to have them deported now or later, it will eventually happen.

    But we have invested a lot into the “Dreamers”, most of them have been through college, and many valuable resources were spent on providing that education, etc… While true, on the other side of the coin is the message being that you can take advantage of our system, and anyone can come to the United States illegally.

    First, it does not benefit the “Dreamer” to live in fear of deportation, that fear is what allows companies to take advantage of them, and make them work under the table, for lower wages.  That fear is what keeps them from having benefits.  It also does not help the “Dreamers” psychological state, that they know that they are doing something which is illegal, and taking advantage of it regardless of the facts.

    Is Diet Soda Bad For You? 

    Is Diet Soda Bad For You?

    Most of the concerns having to do with Diet Soda having a harmful impact on health has to do with Aspartame.

    A quick online search about Aspartame will provide you numerous opinions about this Artificial Sweetener

    Some claim it causes things like cancer, seizures, multiple sclerosis, lupus, memory problems, brain tumors, etc.

    But just about every governmental orginization in the world regulating food products have deemed it safe for human consumption

    In 1974 Aspartame gained FDA’s approval as a food additive, the benifits were that while Sugar and Aspartame both contain about 4 calories per gram, Aspartame is about 180 times sweeter than Sugar, Thus you need much less to get the same perception of sweetness. This is the reason it works so well as a low calorie sweetener.

    Aspartame is made of two amino acids

    1. Phenylalanine
    2. Aspartic acid
    3. And the alcohol Methanol

    All of the health concerns regarding this supplement is regarding what these 3 things can do to the body.

    The question then becomes do the three parts of Aspartame cause health problems?

    The quick answer is Yes.  At high enough levels they do.  But the quick answer is not the whole answer.

    So if high doses of Aspartame are harmful why are they allowed in our food?

    It turns out low doses aren’t harmful and we even need those Amino acids to perform certain functions within the body.

    In fact, Phenylalanine and Asparatic acid are either produced by our bodies from many other foods, or are already found naturally in our diets.  Aspartic acid helps the liver by aiding in the removal ammonia, and is involved in the production of anti-bodies created by the immune system.  It can be found in many different types of foods like asparagus, avocados, sugar beets, sausages, and molasses.  Too much Aspartic acid can be seen in several different disease processes like Lou Gehrig’s disease, Epilepsy, and certain strokes. Unfortunately, for those fighting against Aspartame the levels seen in these conditions are several folds higher than can be achieved by eating Aspartame at recommended amounts.  There is also never been a direct effect between these diseases and increased aspartic acid intake.

    Methanol more commonly known as wood-alcohol is definitely not needed by our bodies, if your wondering why its allowed in Aspartame that’s because it’s already found in many drinks wine, whiskey, and beer.  As you might have guessed humans have been ingesting this for ages at low levels, so it seems Methanol has no long term consequences.  Methanol in general does result in some unwanted reactions within the body specifically it’s taken up by the cells of the body and the production of formaldehyde and formic acid are the result.  Formaldehyde at high levels will cause proteins to form abnormally the result is proteins that no longer function. Formic acid at high levels will cause abnormal metabolic processes within cells, causing them to cease functioning.  The result is death to that cell due to a lack of energy.  This is because it disrupts the organelle responsible for a cells metabolism, known as your mitochondria.  Some cells are extremely sensitive to formic acid, specifically those in the optic nerve.  This is why blindness is associated with methanol poisoning.  So does Aspartame produce enough Methanol to harm people? Probably not. There are many other foods we eat every day that have the same, or higher amounts of Methanol than Aspartame, beer and wine aside, foods like Tomato’s, Tomato Juice, and other citrus fruits and their associated juices are good examples here.

    This brings us to the last ingredient Phenylalanine.  There is a rare disorder called Phenylketonuria affecting 1 in 10,000 people this ailment makes your body unable to break down Phenylalanine, left untreated toxic levels of Phenylalanine build up the result can be things like developmental disorders, cardiac rhythm problems, seizures and severe learning disabilities.  Fortunately, most babies born in the developed world are tested for this disorder and treatment usually involves diet control.  The diet control is because there are many foods that contain higher levels of Phenylalanine than Aspartame specifically the many different types of protein we taken in.  Knowing this disorder exists the FDA requires the Aspartame products be labeled specifically for Phenylketonuria patients.

    That said, anything we take in our bodies in high enough doses can be harmful, arguably the most basic of human needs is water and even water in high doses can be lethal in what is being called water-intoxication

    The question of Aspartame’s safety is more appropriately: Are the levels found in Aspartame, and the dose you may be ingesting high enough to cause unwanted health effects?


    Like any food additive evaluated by the FDA there is an extensive process that takes place before manufacturers are allowed to put it in our foods.  When the FDA first approved Aspartame as an additive there were numerous controversies surrounding its approval.   Those controvercies revolved around the studies the FDA looked at Advocating Aspartame safety.

    That said there have been countless new studies performed looking at Aspartame’s safety

    Numerous other reviews of the research have been conducted by several agencies, including the FDA and the EFSA.  The most recent was conducted by the EFSA and issued on Dec. 10, 2013 that reviewed all studies performed on Aspartame in Animal and Human alike.  Knowing there is such a large controversy surrounding the supplement, the EFSA’s independent panel of experts issued an open public call for any data, comments, or concerns on Aspartame.  According to Alicia Mortensen, chair of the EFSA’s panel, said, “This opinion represents one of the most comprehensive risk assessments of Aspartame ever undertaken.”  The panel concluded that Aspartame does not cause cancer at the levels consumed by humans, and it doesn’t cause problems during pregnancy.  Overall, there were no concerns regarding the current ADI(acceptable daily intake) of 40 milligrams per kilogram of body weight.

    For your reference, according to the american cancer society there are an average of 180 milligrams of Aspartame in a typical 12 ounce can of diet soda.  So an Adult weighing 165 lbs would need to drink 16 cans of diet soda per day to exceed the recommended limit, which itself is set drastically below the dangerous thresholds.  According to the ACS the ADI is about 100 times less than the smallest amount that might cause health concerns, based on a study done on lab animals.

    Election rigging in California 2016 Presidential Election 

    I live in Fremont, CA., and on election day I went into my local polling location and when I arrived an old Chinese lady sitting at the table asked to present my Photo ID.  They looked my name up and then asked me, if I brought my mail in ballot?  I was quite stunned by that question, I wasn’t expecting that question, it really threw me off. I thought maybe I forgot to do something… But it struck me as odd because I have voted in the past in other states and that was never asked.  I certainly did not intend to send a mail in ballot when I arrived at the polling location.  I also did not recall anything about a mail in ballot when I registered to vote for the 2016 election.  So I politely answered the lady, “No, I don’t have a mail in ballot.”

    So she told me that I could fill out the ballot, but asked me not to send it through the electronic ballot counting machine and instead they will mail it…  So I hesitantly agreed and went to the line at the booth to fill out my ballot card.  While I was waiting in line another guy was complaining about it, asking the staff lots of questions. I talked to him as well, he claimed to be a resident of California for the last 15 years and that he voted a lot.  He said he never experienced this kind of thing.  He asked why is it that some people are not being asked to send a mail in ballot?  I noticed that too.  Some people would come in, present their photo ID and not a word was mentioned to them about mail in ballots.

    He was visibly upset, as was I.  I talked to that man about it, because at that time I had known about there being provisional ballots that were not counted at the DNC primaries.  Apparently some rigging was being rumored about provisional ballots.  I said that a lot of people believe that there was rigging going on at the DNC primaries but that I was not a democrat.  So he and I were very skeptical.

    Just as I was thinking about it I had suspected that foul play was taking place.  I had suspected that more republicans were slated as “mail in”.  If Bernie Sanders was being cheated during the DNC primaries then Donald Trump could very probably be getting cheated in the general election.

    Later that night as I was watching the votes come in and I noticed that not all of California votes were counted.  Day’s and weeks went by and they still hadn’t been counted.

    In fact it has been reported that over 3 million provisional ballots were not accounted for in California.  Are they all republican voters?

    I can’t say for sure but what I can say is that there are some really striking statistical anomalies that have come out regarding the election results in several states and all of the abnormalities seem to favor Hillary Clinton.  So if you ask me if I believe that Hillary won the popular vote, I will tell you, not even close!

    Coal is not moving the United States backwards. 


    During the 2017 Politicon debate between Ann Coulter and Ana Kasparian, Ana Kasparian argued that the coal industry is moving us backwards.  Also it is often argued by many Democrats that investing in the coal industry is a “leap backwards”.  The problem is that this is not actually true.  First of all what the president wants to do is create job growth in the united states by removing regulations that inhibit the ability of growth in certain sectors.  The energy industry is a huge sector for potential job growth in the United States.  The democrats are basically saying that we need to invest in more “clean” energy.  But there are several misconceptions, the first most obvious misconception is, there are other options.  Actually, there are no other options, we must ramp up coal mining.

    Clean energy can be divided into two categories

    1. Fantasia (Such as zero point energy, etc…  While these ideas maybe theoretically possible “in the future”, there is no guarantee and it is highly theoretical.)
    2. Existing clean/renewable energy such as Solar, and Wind.

    The obvious problem with #1 is we cannot count on this as an energy solution NOW.  Until we actually demonstrate that fusion is possible and can replace petroleum there are no sufficient reason to throw away investments on it.

    The less obvious problem with #2 is that our existing clean energy solutions are not sufficient solutions to replace petroleum and never will be.  The total amount of existing clean energy in the world rests somewhere between 2% and 4%.  That does not even come close to our existing dependency on petroleum.




    It might be worth noting that we are nearing the end of the petroleum age based on the peak-oil predictions of the 1970’s which did not account for a newly discovered method of drilling shale oil.  However, the reality of the end of the petroleum age has yet to sink in.  We are not finding the high quality oil mines that we used to get in the last 150 years.  The reserves are harder and harder to get.  The energy return investment is far lower than cheap oil fields.  We used up most of the easiest to get oil.  The energy return investment has been falling continuously over decades.  It has reached a very low level.  Which is creating epic problems.  We need to invest more and more money into capex exploration, and the demand for crude oil has grown an average of 1.76% per year each year since 1994.

    Once all of the oil has been used up the economy will enter into a thermodynamic collapse.  Our dependency on oil is directly responsible for the growth of petroleum man.  The last 150 years is the age of the petroleum man.  Without petroleum, petroleum man would never have reached the 7+ billion population.  We are still petroleum man, and until we can replace oil, coal, and natural gas we will remain petroleum man.  Wind and solar are not feasible replacements of petroleum.  Not even nuclear energy comes close.

    Just because a thermodynamic collapse of our economy is somewhere over the horizon does not mean we can be prepared for such an event.  In fact, we will not be prepared for it.

    In retrospect Trump is not wrong about creating job growth for the coal industry.  It creates jobs in the united states which is the platform Trump campaigned on.  That does not send us backwards.  It is not like we are “expending resources” to allow for the coal industry to grow.  We are just simply lifting regulations.  The coal industry flourishes by itself minus the regulations that Obama had imposed on it.  Trump has created 50,000 new jobs this year simply by lifting that regulation.  The only thing that can be said intelligibly about the coal industry that has any value, is that it helps to boost the economy.  We are still able to invest in many different sub-sectors of the energy sector, despite growth in the coal industry.

    Netflix: Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press (Review) 

    This whole documentary is liberal cry baby bullshit propaganda.

    It was primarily created in an attempt to save the face of Gawker.  It may also be a slight pay back against Hulk Hogan too.

    But what I think is less subtle is the liberal propaganda in the film.  At least there are obvious biases that I can detect.

    Let’s start with the obvious.  Most of the people commenting/narrating on this documentary have some stake in earning the public’s appreciation of Gawker.

    1st there is Nick Denton (a Gay man) and obvious liberal-

    This is the guy who sought to damage the reputation of Billionaire Peter Thiel which ended up working against him.

    They attempt to claim that Peter Thiel’s bankrolling hogans lawsuit was somehow an attack against the media’s free-speech.

    The film is attempting to build a perception that Gawker was not acting immorally as a news organization when publishing Hulk Hogans sex tape on the web for ALL to see.  Their justitification- because they published lots of borderline controversial news in the past, such as with Hillary Clinton email scandal, etc…

    It starts with them attempting to justify their blatantly obvious infringement of Terry Bollea ( aka. Hulk Hogan) personal rights and privacy.

    Also, in this documentary they are claiming that its news organizations being attacked, and that “freedom is on trail” for the media.

    Because they should be allowed to publish any kind of news… I do think that there is an infringement on freedom but the victims are the american people, not the news agencies.

    In fact, I think news agencies are guilty of using brainwashing techniques to elicit a behavioral response from Americans.

    Back in 2002 the DHC released an advisory system, and the news media displayed this information along with the news during the Bush administration.


    Many Critics accused the bush administration of using this Color-coded threat system as a way to generate public fear during politically sensitive times, such as in the 2004 election when Bush went for re-election.  Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge told a Washington forum that he sometimes disagreed with the rationale for raising the alert but was overruled by others on the Homeland Security Advisory Council.  In this instance the News is not directly responsible with the brainwashing technique but it was obvious that they were complicit.

    In recent times the Obama administration sought to help Hillary Win the election, and they used the same brainwashing techniques by claiming that the polls were reporting favoritism for Hillary.  The idea is that if you get enough people on board with your propaganda even if you are reporting fake polls you can actually influence the election.   But it seemed that Donald Trump had too much momentum to loose this election.  So in my view news agencies like CNN are responsible for running fake news stories every day (even though CNN claims their news is being undermined of-course). But to get into their rational you also have to buy into their propaganda such as with the polling.

      I agree! Members of the media literally got on stage and said that everything is news worthy including sex tapes of children under the age of 4 years old which is totally distinguishing news. That’s not news that should be for law enforcement people to follow up on; they are sick individuals and they need to stop deliberately creating new worthy ideas in their own minds.This whole documentary was one huge cry baby attack to defend the media’s right to ruin destroy defame and lie against any person they see fit. Its no surprise to anyone that media deliberately leaks evidence against whichever party they aren’t politically backing. And to turn this into a war against the rich and powerful trying to bully american’s slowly taking away our rights is absolute bullshit. The government hasn’t ever resorted to putting private sexual encounters of people on the internet for all to see. It’s distinguishing to think the media has some right in that domain.

    Is Microsoft’s new CEO Satya Nadella really all that? 

    Earnings of Microsoft have started to flatten out.  Now Microsoft hardly makes its money from it’s traditional software products (Windows, Office), most of it’s revenue is coming from its cloud computing business which continues to post strong gains.

    Microsoft sold more copies of Windows 7 than there are people in the United States. (Over 350 Million licenses in less than 18 months.)

    A lot of his proponents think he is pushing the company in the right direction, at least philosophically.  Microsoft products being open sourced, SQL Server being released on Linux, .Net Core becoming cross-platform.

    But were these actually the initiatives of the new Microsoft CEO?  I’m not sure but I’ll bet the answer is no, he was appointed as CEO on 4 February 2014 and .NET Core development was planned ahead of time.  It seems more likely that developer evangelists working at Microsoft diverse most of the credit for this shift in Microsoft’s philosophy.

    But even if we do give credit to the new CEO for this “philosophical shift” he has not been bringing in the revenue that Microsoft has historically pulled in.  Perhaps he see’s something down the line for Microsoft that we all cannot?  I guess he will need to demonstrate that.  But from my perspective, he lacks the business sense of his predecessors Ballmer, and Gates.

    Perhaps Microsoft has plenty of capital to throw towards the wind.
