FIAF

[FIAF (for those confused by the disjointment) is just a mash of whatever I find interesting this morning …. since Friday is a slow day on algore’s internets, it’s either THIS or poat pictures of cats]

Interesting interview with Gary Taubs. It’s all very sciency, but the gist of it is that weight loss is bit more complicated than the calories in/energy out model. And, that certain foods cause you to store the calories as fat.

I don’t really see this as so much different than the South Beach, and similar, approaches. Certain foods trigger more eating, although he’s adding in a twist that certain foods cause you to store them as fat. Although consumption amount DOES play a role, more important is what you eat.

Good carbs in limited amounts. Meat. Fat. Low fat is bullshit. I will continue to eat as I currently do.

Land sharks are not misunderstood dolphins, and Islam isn’t a religion of peace.

When is the last time you saw MSNBC devote hour-long news specials to the parents, friends, teachers, and other relatives of Muslim terrorists responsible for mass murders and assorted bombings? When was the last time CNN scheduled an in-depth look into the Koran and the very clear recipes for murder and mayhem contained in its instructive pages? Probably about the last time the Discovery Channel set aside a night of Shark Week to explore the familial relations of the deep’s apex predators and why their behavior is influenced by blowfish with chalkboards or barracudas who put targets on treasure maps at the bottom of the sea.

I offer up exhibit A:

It obvious why Jared Loughner went on a killing spree. I’m sure you’ve come to the same conclusions as Brad Bushman:

“You’re never sure what caused an individual to commit a specific act,” said Brad Bushman, a communications and psychology professor at Ohio State University. “But I’ve been doing research on violent media for 20 years, and the evidence is that it leads to aggressive behavior. It’s not the only factor that leads to violence, but it’s one of them.”

ONE factor. Perhaps, dare-I-say, the pivotal factor? Some say “Bodies” is about hitting the floor to dance. Sounds like a stretch …

But muslims?

But have you realized how intensely condescending and bigoted the left is toward Muslims in all of its reporting? The actions of a non-Muslim mass murderer like Loughner are pinned on everyone he ever met (and conservatives like Governor Palin whom he never in fact met), but the carnage caused by Muslims and sharks alike isn’t blamed on anyone or anything and just chalked up to “tragedy.” Nothing more to see here, just move along now, and stay out of the water or don’t get on an airplane for a while, and you’ll be just fine.

Have they ever looked into a link between Mulims and drowning pool? Huh? Huh?

[note – I lurv old drowning pool. new stuff? not so much]

Danny Glover chimes in on Tuscon. Idiot.

Know your SEIU. Hamas. FARC.

And be not shocked they members of the SEIU belong to The Freedom Road Socialist Organization.

And what is one of their primary purposes?

1. We stand for the right to self-determination up to and including secession for the African American nation in the Black Belt South.

This outlook is not based on strict adherence to the characteristic features (“a historically constituted, stable community of people, formed on the basis of a common language, territory, economic life, and psychological make-up manifested in a common culture”) once used by the international communist movement, but uses them as guidelines along with other features of African American social development and the subjective striving of generations of conscious African Americans.

And now that I’m reminded of it … I meant to bring up this story about the thuggery of the unions in California.

Under the mantra of “green trucks”, the teamsters are using Obama muscle to force independent drivers into joining the union.

Unions are ANTI- small business.

“We want the trucking companies to buy and maintain clean new trucks,” Hoffa, Jr. wrote in March 2010. “We also want them to pay their truck drivers a fair wage and the employment taxes that go with it. The trucking companies would prefer the federal government protect them from those obligations.”

These new “green trucks” cost more than $100,000 and, to meet the “green” requirements, truckers have to join companies and, by extension, the Teamsters union.

Fuck you, you fucking commie anti-business job killers.

By increasing the number of “green” requirements truckers have to comply with in order to get into some major United States ports — like Los Angeles, Long Beach and Oakland — the Obama administration and the Environmental Protection Agency are helping push previously independent truckers into companies, which then makes them vulnerable to unionization or, in many cases, forced to join a union. As these aren’t administrative laws from the EPA per se, trucks that don’t fit this new “green” standard, which is meeting at least 2007 EPA emissions levels, are still allowed to operate throughout the country. But each of the major port authorities won’t let them in if they don’t fit the new environmental regulations, which would force many independent truckers out of business if they resist since many truckers depend on business from the ports to survive.

Unions HATE small business, which is kind of ironic since we’re always hearing lefties bemoan the loss of small shops to the onslaught of the MEGA store/mega restaurant chains. But the reality of situation, is that small businesses cut into the profits of unions. If they can put a bunch of independent truckers out of work, or force them into a union, it’s more money in THEIR pocket. More POWER.

Well fuck those cocksuckers. I’m sick of it.

    Erin is actually working on some cat pics. She thinks she can get better ones (with the characters living with us) than those in the cat calendar Jack gave us.
