I couldn't stand the taste until someone suggested mixing it with hot coffee.

Pagar, I like the taste of coconut oil. Not for cooking, because it makes things taste like coconut oil that shouldn't taste that way (like omelets, or anything savory).

On of my fave combos as a snack is unsalted roasted almonds in coconut oil. Tastes kind of like a healthy version of the old "Almond Joy" bars.

You can't really mix it into anything cold as it will solidify at right around 65 degrees.

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/03/will_someone_ask_pelosi_about_the_original_cost_projections_of_obamacare.html

When President Obama signed the ACA on March 23, 2010, he said it would cost $940 billion over its first ten years (FY2010- FY 2019). The CBO made that estimate in its analysis completed March 18, 2010. A few days later the CBO lowered its cost projection to $938 billion based on a more detailed analysis. (CBO was so good they could adjust by $2 billion over 10 years.)

In March 2012, the CBO updated its Obamacare cost estimate to $1.76 trillion.

In 2014, CBO upped the cost to over $2 trillion while the number people covered is lower than anyone estimated.

The CBO estimates were off over 100% in four years. Why are their projections considered accurate on anything?

I heard that Nancy Pelosi is complaining that we don’t see the cost of the new Republican proposal.

Does anyone remember Obama coming to Congress to ask for almost $1 trillion in additional appropriations in the last seven years to cover the shortfall? Did he ask for permission to transfer other funds to pay for it? Did Pelosi and Reid go to the floor and ask for the additional money and offer to pay for it with offsetting cuts or higher taxes? Does anyone remember the media ever asking any questions as to how the known shortfall was paid for? I am pretty sure none of those things ever happened.

Maybe the media should ask Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Dick Durbin along with the media’s favorite Republicans, Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lindsay Graham and Sen. Susan Collins how the almost-one trillion shortfall (so far) has been paid for.

MM - I feel for you re:power outage. I get so ticked off when that happens!!!

daddy

I recall that the magic word back in PlameGate was "Behest." Everything was done at Dick Cheney's "Behest." Chris Matthew's couldn't open up his mouth without slobbering out "Dick Cheney's Behest!" I remember even writing a poem at about it:

"Behest, behest, behest",
"Behest" I must confess
I'm bewitched, be-bothered and bewildered
by this word "Behest".

Benevolently beligerent,
begrudgingly beguiling,
"Behest" belies I do believe that Kristof he done lied to me.

Behoovingly I beseech thee,
bestow light on this mystery
by belatedly belittlin'
and be-fiskin' his Bull-shittery.

Breakfast at Wilson's? Oh Yes!
Benighted hell of a mess,
Cause Val sent Joe to Niger for yellowcake
All at Dick Cheney's "behest, behest",
All at Dick Cheney's "behest".

Posted by: daddy | November 23, 2005 at 01:37 PM

So if there used to be all this behesting going on, how come there's none of it now? How come none of this wiretapping of Trump by Obama was done at Obama's behest? There used to be more "behesting" at MSNBC than you could shake a stick at!

Off to work

Old Lurker

From Susies link:

"Republican Lindsey Graham and Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse, both Senators who sit on the Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to the Department of Justice and FBI Wednesday demanding the release of wiretap warrant applications (if they exist) for President Donald Trump, Trump Tower and the Trump campaign as a whole."

Was it not just yesterday My Gal had lunch with Trump?

Old Lurker

JOM Lawyers, is the following absolutely true?

"(CNN)FBI Director James Comey warned Wednesday that Americans should not have expectations of "absolute privacy," adding that he planned to finish his term leading the FBI.

"There is no such thing as absolute privacy in America; there is no place outside of judicial reach," Comey said at a Boston College conference on cybersecurity. He made the remark as he discussed the rise of encryption since 2013 disclosures by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden revealed sensitive US spy practices.

"Even our communications with our spouses, with our clergy members, with our attorneys are not absolutely private in America," Comey added. "In appropriate circumstances, a judge can compel any one of us to testify in court about those very private communications."

But, he also said Americans "have a reasonable expectation of privacy in our homes, in our cars, in our devices.

"It is a vital part of being an American. The government cannot invade our privacy without good reason, reviewable in court," Comey continued."

"Weakening the presidency," huh?

The train has sailed eight years ago. 😬

Old Lurker

Henry, he does say that every single thing you might have thought to be private is but one judge's demand away from being revealed.

He also indicates any sense of privacy we have as Americans is subject to somebody's notion of reasonableness.

I thought at the very least that the Constitution promises I cannot be forced to testify against myself.

Again, is Comey technically accurate in what he said above, and do regular people know that? You Catholics who regularly confess had better be careful. I hope my lawyer has a bad memory too.

Comey, Brennan and Clapper know they are now under the gun thanks to WikiLeaks. Its only been a matter of time since they have been out since earlier in 2016.

I hope Brennan wil agree to come to Nunez' hearing but he won't. He's the one guy they need to talk to and may require a Congressional supobena which will be executed by a Trump DoJ unlike the prior administration.

My "irritated at talk radio" report.

Leaving this morning I heard Laura Ingraham, who was backseat driving President Trump's advisors, who she considered weren't properly informing him on the ACA repeal. She also had on that guy who defeated Eric Cantor who was making statements complimentary to Trump but irritated at Ryan. There was confusion between him and Ingraham as to what actually was in the bill and if there was going to be amending or revision. She was too sure she was right and irritating.

Then, coming home, Rush was on and despite several people over the last few days explaining that the state line crossing had to be in a separate bill due to the reconcilation requirements, he still was blustering about how it needed to be included and DOOM if this wasn't done tight and so forth.

I wish we had a good classical music station in this area. I am sick of all of the yakkers.

Oh, and my neighbor at the old house parked his damn trailer right at the end of my driveway (work related type) so when I backed out I hit it, and now my trunk on the Jeep is jammed and won't open.

I did cut some daffodils in my old garden, as we areto get snow this weekend and they will be frozen out, anyway, No one will miss them since the house isn't being shown yet.

There are dozens of recipes to make fat bombs that people on low carb or ketogenic diets use.

If you use a noncaloric sweetener you can make something that tastes good and contains your desired amount of coconut oil without sugar.

The skinny on coconut fats (oil):


https://draxe.com/coconut-oil-benefits/


Doesn't taste like much. I warm it (115 degrees) and lightly salt it before pouring over my veganic salad. A touch of "bacon essence" and voila "warm bacon dressing" which blends well with a dijon/balsamic dressing.


My main meals are salads so flavors are *everything*.


One can also take the liquified coconut oil and add it to ground pumpkin, flax, and sunflower seeds with cinnamon and xylitol (sweetener) to make a very filling "granola" that will carry ya through a morning of hard physical labor.


Add coconut oil to vegetarian soups to thicken. I can prepare hot spicy broth and pour it over fresh greens (doesn't cook the greens) in a bowl. Thickens like a hearty beef stew in seconds.


Life is good.

Cummings reportedly used today's Trump meeting to ask him "not to speak about black communities like they're all in crisis". Iirc Cummings represents the part of Baltimore that rioted and burned businesses after repeat drug dealer offender Freddie Gray died, and after the Baltimore Mayor had given Cummings' constituents "space to destroy"? Then while the ruins were still smoldering, the Baltimore DA filed bogus criminal charges against 6 exonerated police officers, for which they are now suing her and Baltimore?

March 8, 2013 at 5:26pm ·

from Instapundit ~ " “While the old guard of the Republican Party was out playing footsie with the president, the new kids in town were talking to the American people about liberty.” There’s no shame in conducting budget negotiations. What’s shameful is the narcissism behind the attacks on other people who are also doing things that need to be done.
Plus, from the comments: “For the better part of 20 years now, every time McCain pushes the Republican-bashing button, he gets a food pellet from the press corps. At this point he probably couldn’t stop if he wanted to.”"

and this -

Rep. Amash reply's to Sen. McCain ~ "Justin Amash @repjustinamash
