That's a real nice sentiment but where do I get the money to pay the
higher price for non-factory farm produced organic food. I do have a
good deal in the fact that I can get pure real olive oil from an old
customer who has his own olive groves in Greece. If I get a chance, I
can get to the farmers market on the far side of the city but that
requires a lot of walking and unless I could get a scooter, it would be
difficult for me to obtain contented vegetables who are known by name by
the farmer who raised them. I go to small stores and use the shopping
cart as a walker. The small grocery store that is in my neighborhood has
a fair selection of vegetables but I don't know which
planet they were grown on. I do buy dead animals and parts of them there
but not that much. My pain level drops when I consume animal protein but
I don't buy that much and when I do it's mostly dead chickens. ^_^
Heart attacks, strokes, diabetes and immune system diseases are all virtually preventable yet comprise 90% of all health care costs.
And like it or not, ObamaCare is mandatory so we (read working TAXPAYERS) are going to pay for this needless waste.
Hey, speaking of taxes, it's almost April 14th. Since I have to financially support an obesecycle rider, can I claim it on my 1040?
I was able to loose a great deal of unhealthy weight by simply cutting
sugared soft drinks out of my diet. As much as I love cookies, candy and
ice creme, I'm going to have to avoid them. High fructose corn syrup is
used to sweeten so many foods where actual cane sugar would be more
healthy, not because of it being significantly different as a sweetener
but because it is much more expensive and a manufacturer would use less
cane sugar. The HFCS manufacturers remind me of the tobacco industry of
years ago where they sponsored scientific research which was claimed to
prove tobacco was good for you and perfectly healthy to use. Like
tobacco, consumers really don't know what's in HFCS which has a
manufacturing process that is proprietary and a closely held secret. Too
much of anything including sugar is unhealthy. One very big problem is
the fact that there is so much sugar hidden in processed foods. O_o
I can take care of a whole package of mint Oreos in an evening.
Grandsons know my hiding places, so keeping them on hand is out of the
question. I will live however long one does with my vices, which is more
fun than worrying about every calorie I take in (calorie count, in and
out, is equal). Now that pot is becoming legal, I'm wondering what will
happen to the anti-smoking movement? And why does this country count on
such destructive vices to raise money? Sort of oxymoronic.
So you have a problem with people who've paid into the system longer
than you've been alive and those same folks who were against your
Messiah Obama's plan to destroy the medical care and health insurance
industry in this country. How many nyms do you have? ^_^
Destroy the health care industry? You have no clue what an absolute,
wasteful pile of s--- it is. It is finally going electronic, and the
newer diagnostic and procedure codes used by providers will shine a big
light on the worst crooks and the providers who just sell procedures
rather than care.
60 Minutes is a rag. Once when I didn't control the channel, I saw
them do a hatchet job on a guy who sued a newspaper for libel, and 60
Minutes pointed out firmly and more than once that the newspaper hadn't
printed the false statements in the paper, but only put them in a
Well "publishing libel" doesn't mean publishing in a newspaper. If it
did, only newspapers or those who used newspapers could commit libel.
Publishing libel in a letter that is given or sent to someone is all
that's required for "publication". 60 Minutes didn't care.
You can't trust a word they say.
We need to talk, you and me.
I am currently on the waiting list to have my left knee replaced with a
stainless steel hinge.
And I have so many questions.
Will I be able to kneel and crawl with a synthetic knee?
You may have the answers I need to decide if and when I should go ahead
with the surgery.
No, I am not able to crawl or kneel. Since a good part of my job
function required that I do that,,, per my company's policy I had to
take their long term disability...and per Social Security I was declared
Mt knees healed well, but the range of motion was not sufficient for
kneeling. (I had a total of three additional arthroscopic procedures
after my knee replacements with some improvement...but not enough for
Note: The results from person to person vary...but even if you were able
to bend your knees far enough to kneel, it could be difficult to do so
and might feel uncomfortable.
Additionally, full healing can easily take a year or longer.
Had I had a desk job however, I would have been able to go back to work
within six weeks.
