SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

Since I’m too retarded to figure out how to post graphics in the comment section and I can’t afford to pay my tech to show me how,I’m trying to post pictures with links. As granny used to say, “Take a chance–Columbus did.”
But an editorial cartoonist with the Chattanooga Times Free Press took divisive, vitriolic politics to a whole new level with this political cartoon.

Too low even for libs: Cartoon links Trayvon Martin, Obama impeachment
As can be seen, Obama is depicted as a Trayvon Martin-like figure, while the act of impeachment is portrayed by a George Zimmerman-like character. The racial overtones are impossible to miss.

IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD, IT’S HIS 53RD BIRTHDAY TODAY
Obama’s bizarre birthday campaign: ‘Way to be creepy there, DNC’
How long will it be before he makes it a national holiday by executive order?

President Obama’s mini-meltdown during a White House news conference last week was just the beginning of the birthday begging.

The DNC didn’t miss a beat with the annual appeal to the ignorant, but this time it was a little creepy:

Put Down the Cupcake: New Ban Hits School Bake Sales

New Requirements May Squeeze Out Gooey Fundraising Fare; Fat Standard
Without state-approved exemptions, any treats sold would have to meet calorie, sodium, fat and other requirements. The law permits states to fine schools that don’t comply.
Pathetic….some of the best cookies I ever had some of my school friends’ moms made.

What her staffers say it’s like to work for an egomaniac and raging narcissist like Jackson Lee.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas also hands out nicknames to the people who work for her. The Houston Democrat addressed one of her employees as “you stupid motherfucker.” And not just once, but “constantly,” recalls the staffer, “like, all the time.”

Resistant Starch: It (might be) good for what ails you

Resistant starch toon

Hundreds of people have experimented recently with adding resistant starch to their diets and seen major improvements in certain health problems. “Resistant” just means it is a type of starch that doesn’t get digested in the stomach or small intestines. It resists digestion until it gets to the large intestines, where it then feeds those super important little critters that live there.

Why resistant starch is good for you [4:03]

Gut flora (the friendly microorganisms that live on your intestinal wall) outnumber body cells 10 to 1, but 90% of what we eat goes to feed the 10%. Resistant starch concentrates on feeding these poor, underfed 90%. [I could make an occupy joke here, but I won’t. Be assured, though, that I AM giggling madly.]

And, in one of those lovely God-incidency things, while those micro-critters are nom-nomming on the resistant starch, they are also producing something called butyrate … which just so happens to be the preferred fuel of the human cells that form the lining of the colon!

  • Healthy colon lining -> good health.
  • Sickly colon lining -> colon cancer.

Also, eating more resistant starch reduces pH and inflammation, two problems I struggle with all the time.

And, BIG BONUS FOR PISTOL PETE, it also stabilizes blood sugar and improves how body cells respond to insulin. Some studies have found a 33-50% improvement in insulin sensitivity after 4 weeks of consuming 15-30 grams of resistant starch per day.

Eating more resistant starch may also help you to painlessly lose a bit of weight, since it has half the calories of regular starch and seems to increase satiety. (Satiety: When you’re not jonesing for more food.)

There are two ways to add resistant starches to your diet:

FOODS: Some foods naturally have more resistant starch than others. Note: How these foods are prepared can have a major effect on how much resistant starch you swallow. For example, green bananas, which are a rich source until they ripen, then not so much.  Also, potatoes and rice need to be cooked and then cooled before eating, since the starch in them only changes into the resistant kind while the food is cooling.  Fortunately, I only like bananas when they’re just barely edible. And I really LOVE cold potatoes.

SUPPLEMENTS: The articles below recommend Bob’s Red Mill Raw Potato Starch. (Amazon sells it.) I think I’m going to try this. It is a good thickener for cooked foods, so it’ll be handy for my soups, since I can’t use corn starch. But for maximum resistant starch consumption, it has to be eaten cold and raw. They say to just stir it into water first thing in the morning, but ew … powder stirred into water makes me gag and hurl. However, I really like very thick yogurt, which I eat with fruit for breakfast most days anyway, so easy peasy. (The articles below give amounts and cautions.)

If you’re interested in exploring this in more depth, I suggest you start here:
