My turtle egg baskets are still holding. The grates probably aren't wide enough for the hatchlings to get through, so I'll have to keep an eye out when it's time.

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the [veridical]. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to – The [Democrat Debate].

I’m beginning to have a change of heart about business and free markets.

Best described by this comment I read:

“Calvin Coolidge: The business of America is business.

Japanese leader (can’t remember who): The business of Japan is the Japanese.

Capitalism and free markets are a wonderful tool, but that’s all that they are: a tool. They should serve the purpose of advancing the welfare of a people. Political and business leader should always have that as their ultimate goal. Once you make profits the ultimate goal, the people become an impediment.”

Am I just late to the party?

it isn't all that big of a surprise. google and fb have sold out dissidents (especially to china); had a really unhealthy role in the Arab Dumpster Fire; and bring in tens of thousands that have no concepts of free speech or free association in the lands they come from.

yeah sure Trump is the tyrant ... that is why they freely collaborate with his enemies to undermine him at every turn.

Crenshaw Roasts Big Tech at Homeland Security Hearing

rich

Corbin starting out ok.

Extraneus
Crenshaw also asked the panel for a “quick definition of hate speech.”

One representative responded that notions of superiority, especially those based upon personal characteristics such as race or sexual orientation, are considered hate speech.

Interestingly enough, this was precisely the example cited by panelist and former ACLU president Nadine Strossen, who said that one person’s hate speech is another person’s sacred belief. This would qualify Biblical social teaching on sexuality as hate speech.

Strzok already testified in the House in one of the most soviet, gaslighting episodes of political theater i've ever witnessed ... that testimony was bizarre, beyond bizarre.

Rocco

rich, thanks but I don't think that was it. The one amom posted was a study with over 350 participants. I think it was 52% who eliminated their type 2 diabetes all together with keto.

I hope amom is ok, I think she lost power the other day.

I had been telling my wife about some of the comments by Jane and amom. How Jane has been on it for over a year and lost a lot of weight. And when amom posted that doctors who think keto is not healthy are either ignorant or lying, I think, convinced my wife. That study just drove it home for both of us and I hope amom posts it again cause I want to show my doctor.

It's so much easier with both of us dieting together. (i was going to say doing it together but after the bending over and lying down comments, I thought better.)

Extraneus

I posted about Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 earlier. IANAL, but just reading it seemed to suggest that there's no way to use that law or section against them. In fact, it immunizes them.

Another Bob

Rich, IMHO keto requires a bit of a leap of faith. You’re doing exactly what you’ve been told to NEVER do.

Jane

True AB, at least when I started, but you’ve now been hearing about it for a long time. If nothing else it made me realize most “experts” are idiots.

Think of all the stuff the democrats push.

I will say it is fun to watch people react to eating 75% fat.

Extraneus

IMHO keto requires a bit of a leap of faith.

I'm not buying it without seeing the caloric intake of the people who claim to be eating nothing but fat and protein, and comparing that to their previous caloric intake.

Best case we should see the before/after data in Calories, Fat, Carbs, Protein. We might be able to make some sense out of that.

I do believe that carbs affect diabetes. Seems obvious.

Another Bob

“most “experts” are idiots”

True that, Jane. But the “science” was supposedly settled before. Who’s to say the science of keto is correct today?

Ever since the passage of the Super Predator Crime Bill, pushed hard by @JoeBiden, together with Bill and Crooked Hillary Clinton, which inflicted great pain on many, but especially the African American Community, Democrats have tried and failed to pass Criminal Justice Reform...

....They came to me asking for help, and I got Criminal Justice Reform passed, with help from both Republicans and Democrats. Many said that nobody but President Trump could have done this. All previous administrations failed. Please ask why THEY failed to the candidates!

Today a nurse told me she watched a documentary called "The Magic Pill" on Netflix and she thought it was interesting. She said it was about tribal aborigines in Australia who were becoming very unhealthy because of processed foods and such. They were all cured of their diabetes when put on a keto diet.

I don't have Netflix
