Worldwide Alert! Stop Vegetable Abuse

I Voted Sticker
Good Day World!

It’s time to end the abuse.

Every day, cucumbers, zucchinis and carrots are being inserted into orifices where they don’t belong!
It doesn’t stop there either – we’re talking broccoli, radishes and even artichokes. Anyone with a conscience knows it’s not right to put vegetables where the sun don’t shine.
These nutritional foods that are born from the sweet soil of our earth are not meant for whatever you may or may not be doing in the privacy (hopefully) of your home.
Make a salad, steam them, stir-fry or just sauté with a little olive oil and garlic.Now that is how to properly use a vegetable. Vote to end the abuse here.

Chill Out! Freeze Your Worries and Pain Away

Good Day World!

The topic today is Cryotherapy.

Are you looking to reduce psychological stress, insomnia, rheumatism, muscle and joint pain, and various skin conditions?

Then chill out. 

All you have to do is expose your body to ultra-low temperatures (-200 to -240 F). You do this by getting in a cryogenic sauna/chamber for a short duration of 1.5-3 minutes. It’ll lower your skin surface temperature significantly and stimulates receptors.

In other words, your supposed to feel great after freezing your ass (and other parts) off!

Clothing worn during the treatment is minimal: for women clothing is optional while for men genitals have to be covered with cotton underwear to avoid getting “blue balls!” (Just kidding – but men do have to cover up their family jewels.)

During the 1.5-3min session the average skin temperature drops to 10 °C (50 °F), while the coldest skin temperature can be 0 °C (32 °F). The core body temperature remains unchanged throughout the process, however, it may drop slightly afterwards.

Professional athletes have been doing cryogenic thing for years now. It was first used in Japan (1978), but has been redefined by a group of Polish scientists who took the idea and made Whole Body Cryotherapy the physical therapy it is today.

There’s little doubt in my mind that this therapy is expensive. If I didn’t have such an aversion to bitter coldness, I’d try it out. I’m also cheap, and would probably try the therapy at home first in our deep freezer in the garage!

Until I get that desperate, I think I’ll stick to what I’m doing now.

The ‘Silent Majority’ Needs a Candidate That Can Motivate Millennials

Good Day World!

Most Americans identify with the Democratic Party according to A study released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center.

Despite the findings, GOP candidates for the House of Representatives in 2014 garnered millions more votes than their Democratic rivals.

So how did a decisive Democratic edge in the general population translate to a distinct Republican advantage at the polls?

For some quick backround let’s look at two different versions of what’s happening in politics today:

Emerging Democratic Majority

Emerging Republican Advantage

After everything is said and done, the answer why we have a GOP dominated Congress is simple: the Democratic majority is mute. They aren’t voting.

The Pew study surveyed more than 25,000 adults throughout 2014, a much broader sample than traditional opinion polls. It also found that Democrats retain a wide advantage among younger Americans.

Fifty-one percent of Millennials (defined as people ages 18-33) either identify as Democrats or lean that way, compared to 35 percent who identify as or lean Republican.

Unfortunately, when the Millennials forsake voting, it leaves a vast majority of Americans under-represented by a Conservative minority. The results, as we all know, is a polarized Congress trying to force an agenda down American throats.

It’s apparent that the Democratic Party needs to capture these Millennial’s attention, and get them to vote. A silent majority isn’t the recipe for a healthy America. The question is, who is going to step forward and attract these voters?

Rocky: ‘Yo Paulie! I wish you the best!’

Good Day World!

“Yo Paulie!

I saw ya on TV yesterday.

Youse looked real good. I heard ya were thinking about running for president of the United States, and now youse gone and done it.

I know I’m jus a dumb boxer, but could ya splain to me what you mean by, "We have come to take our country back"(?)

I unnerstan visions – I get em all the time – so when you say you have a "different vision" for America, I kinda get it. The part about getting our liberty back is kinda confusing – here I thought I was already free – but if you say so, I guess it’s so.

I like what you say about those rich folks get richer, and the poorer folks getting poorer. It’s what I see happening too. You know how I feel about underdogs, so don’t worry about getting my vote Paulie (aka Rand Paul).

I figure you have a better chance at getting the Republication nomination than I had in fighting Apollo Creed.

Folks don’t give you much of a chance, but like Mickey told me, “You're gonna eat lightnin' and you're gonna crap thunder!” against those other presidential wannabes.

It’ll be your biggest fight yet, and even if ya lose, I expect youse to be still standing tall in people’s opinions. Adrian, and I, will always be there for ya Paulie!”

Best wishes, Rocky

How can you know when someone is telling you the truth?

Good Day World?

How can you know when someone is telling you the truth?

Do you have a built-in sh**t- meter? Can you read body language and detect a liar?Are you psychic? Do you research everything you read to verify facts?

I’m curious.

These days, I don’t know who to believe. When it comes to watching/reading the news I often suspect I’m not getting the whole story – or someone (world figure, ect) is out-right lying like a rug!

An example:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for the rejection of the framework of a multi-country deal that with Iran that seeks to limit the country's nuclear capability.

He claims the current plan "leaves the preeminent terrorist state of our time with a vast nuclear infrastructure."

Is that true? Does Netanyahu know something the US doesn’t? I wouldn’t be surprised. Israel’s spy system is superb.

On the other hand, there’s reason to doubt Netanyahu’s claims. The man will say anything to see the US back off from any kind of deal with Iran – their hated enemy.

When you infuse politics into the media mess, truth is one of the first victims. So what are we left with in the pursuit of truth?

Good question.

Take everything with a grain of salt for starters. After that, just try to use common sense whenever possible. That’s not as easy as it sounds.

It also really helps if you can separate yourself from political parties and allow yourself to remain open to the truth.

Independent thought is rapidly diminishing in this sound-byte age, but if your not afraid to question/research issues in depth, chances are you’ll get closer to the truth than you are now.

On April 6th,1954, the original TV Dinner sold for 98 cents

Good Day World!

I grew up in the fifties, a time when home-cooked meals were first being challenged by TV Dinners.

TV Dinner is a genericized trademark originally used for a brand of packaged meal developed in 1953 by C.A. Swanson & Sons (the full name was TV Brand Frozen Dinner).

The original TV Dinner came in an aluminum tray and was heated in an oven.

The first Swanson-brand TV Dinner was produced in the United States and consisted of a Thanksgiving meal of turkey, cornbread dressing, frozen peas and sweet potatoes packaged in a tray like those used at the time for airline food service.

TV DINNER INVENTION HISTORY

The identity of the TV Dinner's inventor has been disputed.

In one account, first publicized in 1996, retired Swanson executive Gerry Thomas said he conceived the idea after the company found itself with a huge surplus of frozen turkeys because of poor Thanksgiving sales.

Thomas' version of events has been challenged by the Los Angeles Times, members of the Swanson family and former Swanson employees. They credit the Swanson brothers with the invention.

Either way, Swanson's concept was not original.

In 1944, William L. Maxson's frozen dinners were being served on airplanes. Other prepackaged meals were also marketed before Swanson's TV Dinner.

In 1948, plain frozen fruits and vegetables were joined by what were then called 'dinner plates' with a main course, potato, and vegetable.

Later, in 1952, the first frozen dinners on oven-ready aluminum trays were introduced by Quaker States Foods under the One-Eye Eskimo label.

Quaker States Foods was joined by other companies including Frigi-Dinner, which offered such fare as beef stew with corn and peas,veal goulash with peas and potatoes, and chicken Chow Mein with egg rolls and fried rice.

However, Swanson, a large producer of canned and frozen poultry in Omaha, Nebraska, was able to promote the widespread sales and adaptation of frozen dinner by using its nationally-recognized brand name with an extensive national marketing campaign nicknamed "Operation Smash" and the clever advertising name of "TV Dinner," which tapped into the public's excitement around the new device.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Have a look at the old newspapers from April 6, 1954 and get them!

Jesus Christ Walked Away From the USA One Day

Good Day World!

Here’s a thought…

Jesus Christ walked away from the USA one day

fed up with intolerant churches and what they had to say

disgusted with the games So-Called Christians have to play

Jesus walked far far away.

Leaving the hypocrites and the money-changers

HE turned his back on the hatred being shared

by Christian churches and their phony dangers

stigmatizing non-believers, their bigotries bared

 

So, Jesus Christ walked away from the USA one day

and the churches in America didn’t notice

because they had long ago went another way

far from his teachings and focus.
