How to make Steamed Potato with Plastic Grocery Bag and Microwave! Tastes Just Like a Bake Potato, Without The Oven

When I lived in Texas at our house we like to keep from turning on the oven as much as possible...its just so freaking hot. I also love potatoes.When I was going to college, money was tight, so I had to figure things out in a very McGyver kind of way. I don't care how potatoes are made usually, as long as I make it. Nothing against other people's potatoes, I will definitely eat those too, I just know what I like.

What you will need:
  • Big Potato from super market, the biggest one you can find.
  • Clear plastic bag similar to a shopping bag, like a clean clear trash bag. (This is so we aren't microwaving inks and dyes with our potato.
The first thing you are going to want to do is wash the potato thoroughly. Make sure its still wet. Now grab a fork and poke holes vertically down the long side of the potatoe about 2-3 fork pokes will do. Put the potato in the plastic bag, tie a lose knot, and microwave for 8-10 minutes or until soft, you can keep checking with fork, to see if it is soft enough and, to find the right time for your specific microwave.

CAREFUL: When opening the plastic bag it is essentially steaming the potato. Inside the bag, it's contents is very hot as well as the steam coming from inside the bag, do not burn yourself. Once you find the correct time for your microwave remember it, and it won't be that much of a hassle next time. 

This is the best way to make a baked potato without an oven. Open it up, add your favorite cheese, maybe some sour creme and enjoy.

How to Eat Healthy on a Tight Budget

Some days are always going to be harder than others. Especially when it comes down to treating the most important person yourself. It always seems that the more healthy you want to eat, the more expensive it actually costs. Try to find a local farmers marker that may be near you, or maybe you know someone that live in the area, that does all of their own gardening. Sometimes talking to these kinds of connections will get you saving big bucks on some good home grown fruits and vegetables, without having to pay a big chain grocery store their cut, and of course without any pesticides.

If you have the room in your backyard, you may want to start giving growing a garden a shot. You will have tomatoes and cucumbers in no time at all. The best tip anyone ever told me about going shopping for food when your broke is, never go to the store shopping hungry, and never go without knowing exactly what you are going to get. Make a shopping list and stick to it! I know it is hard to stay away from the sweet stuff, but here is a good rule to follow, if it has a shelf life of over 2 years, or (like a twinkie) doesn't mold as natural bread products would, means its terrible for you. Loaded with preservatives that are made straight in a laboratory. Sure it keeps the companies bottom line high, but who knows what all these food colorings and preservatives are doing to our body in the long term.

I am not sure what your diet consists of now, but I will tell you this, you will need to buy (and eat) more greens. Even if you think you eat your daily value, or whatever the case may be, no one can ever have too much, and its essential for a healthy body, and digestive system. Try to get frozen ingredients or even fresh....stay away from the canned goods. They add too much sodium that just isn't needed, and it definitely isn't good for us. So keep it simple! Well.... Not too simple.

One of the biggest things you can remember when buying your weekly beverage is to try to keep sugar out of the mix. Especially when it comes to soda, and other artificial flavored kids drinks. If you want something refreshing that tastes good, get some fruit juice, you can cheat if you like even and get a 30/40 part fruit juice and artificial flavoring....anything is better than the bucket they pull out of that Coca-Cola syrup. 

One of the greatest tricks I ever learned when controlling my bad eating habits was to portion lets say a package of cookies into 10 smaller ziplock bags. This way whenever I wanted a cookie I was forced to grab a ziploc bag instead of the entire case of Oreos. This is a good trick for you and your family if you are trying to eat healthier. Sometimes the problem isn't what we eat its how much of it we eat. Too much of something that good, definitely can't be good for you in the long run.

Have you been Throwing Up, Unable to Stop, and are Looking for Answers?

I have been in and out of the ER, for upwards of 7 years now. I have had 12+ cyclic vomiting attacks, that I cannot pin point to anything. Every time this happens, I feel so dehydrated. I feel like I have been walking in the hot desert for days, and I have had nothing to drink. I feel really scared...



DO NOT GIVE UP!



The only way I have found relief when this attack starts is to go immediately after not holding water for 24 hours to the Emergency Room. This is where they can give me an IV immediately, and restore fluids into my body. 4 years ago, I went to a GI doctor, and I had a colonoscopy done, a variety of other scans. I didn't have insurance at the time, so this has cost me thousands of dollars. I now have a good job, with good insurance, and thankfully a boss who understands...However, nothing was found with these scans, and I am still faced with the original problem of having these attacks every so often, and I am back at square one.

The Doctors are NO HELP, lets TROUBLESHOOT.

Step 1: Everyday foods that are NOT good for your stomach's overall health:


  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Gluten
  • Dairy Products
  • Processed Meats
  • Refined Foods
  • Artificial Colors, Sweeteners (Foods)
  • Sweets (Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup)
  • Unstable Oils in Foods
  • Allergens
Caffeine, energy drinks especially wear down the digestive lining of your stomach. Coffee also is NOT good. Try to stay away from this. I know it's going to be hard, but I am right there with you. Leave a comment on this blog, if you need help. It's a hell of a drug. Gluten is also really bad at damaging your internal digestive stomach lining. Gluten mainly consists of barley, rye, wheat, spelt, kamut, and triticale. Dairy products can create mucus and inflammation in your gut. This can be really bad for absorption and the lining of your stomach as well. Spam, cold cuts, hot dogs, and other refined meats can really mess with your flora (or good bacteria in your stomach that helps us digest foods). The point is all of these things are on this list for a reason, and understanding they are bad for our stomach, is always Step 1.

Step 2: Understand what IS good for your stomach's overall health:

  • Chicory Root
  • Probiotics (In capsule form)
  • Brassicas (Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts)
  • Jurasalem Artichokes
  • Chia Seed
  • Jicama
  • Ginger Root Capsules (For Anti-Nausea, works as effective as Zofran)
  • Nexium (Purple pill sold over the counter, after your throwing up fit, helps heal from stomach acids).
  • Flax Seed
Now all we have to do is increase our daily intake of these good things for our stomachs. Poor diet is the leading cause of all this so I hear. I have tried eating better in the past, and I still get attacks. I have just gone to the doctor again today, after I have been to the ER, and we had this discussion. Dr. Johnson was really good with his explanation, and I want to pass on what I am trying for myself. I will let you know on my progress. If you suffer from uncontrollably
throwing up, and you can't get help no matter where you go, please leave a comment I would love to hear from you. I have been dealing with this for a while off and on, and all I really want is help. Hopefully, with changes to my diet I finally have my answer heres hoping...

Step 3: Setup a vitamin/supplement plan that really works for you

  • Multivitamins are good, but eating better is, well, better. When taking vitamins and supplements you shouldn't be looking for a one stop shop, instead, look for vitamins and minerals that you are deficient in based on your diet. For example, if you eating a vegan diet, it would probably be a good idea to drink protein shakes. So that you can have a good daily intake. 
  • Here is what I am currently taking that helps with my stomach: Nexium (for stomach acid balance, post throwing up attack.), Ginger capsules, Floragen (Probiotic capsules), and Zofran for the anti-nausea. My doctor has said that Ginger can be just as effective as Zofran. I believe that's the most honest thing any doctor has ever told me, and it works.
  • Remember to refer to the good things for your stomach I have listed above, those have plenty of what you need. Find balance. Don't over do anything. Not for at least a month after you have had a throwing up attack.

Just a reminder for everyone, set those clocks ahead...don't be the guy or girl at work with a lame excuse...or take advantage...your call...lol

Health News: Rage Room Opened in Toronto Facility for People with High Stress and Anxiety To Break Random Things…

imageOne entrepreneur in Toronto has been thinking outside the box in terms of people’s health and well being. His concepts are kind of well, barbaric and fundamental at the same time. Who would of thought a socially acceptable place people can go, that just want to break things. Did someone just run over your puppy? Do you want to kill them because they killed your best friend? Don’t do anything stupid, go to a rage room, and smash blenders and TVs…I guarantee you, you will tucker out eventually…and its better than downing that cheap bottle of your favorite alcoholic poison. I say it’s a win both for people looking to relieve a little stress, and that also have issues dealing with their anger. This is a great way to just let go, and smash things. Pretend its their head, pretend its your landlord’s knee caps, great.

After wards I am sure you will feel tired, sleep like a baby, and feel like a new person the next day more ready to put what's troubling you behind you, and if not, go in for another smash session after work.

I think this is a great business model for any young entrepreneur in cities and countries around the world to get the frustrations out of mankind as a whole. We don’t need a purge day, we need more Rage rooms. In fact, I wouldn’t mind booking a few hours. There is some TV’s and old Radios that don’t work no more, that I been waiting to smash. Not to mention, young business owners out there, with all the clean up after any given rage session, who knows what components might have been knocked loose that can further be recycled from old goodwill scrap that your buying as rage victims. Much of the old technology like stereos and speakers that used to be made were made with better quality components including gold on the chip boards. Especially if it was at one time a state-of-the-art product. Remember that word, state of the art? I am getting old…

*Here are some tips that I can offer you if you want to setup your own Rage Room at home. Mind you if you get hurt its on you, I will try to give you tips to keep you as safe as possible, but what you actually do in your rage room, and what your actually doing it too is all on you, be smart, and use common sense, then go crazy, not the other way around.*

Safety Check list for a Rage-Room of Your Own at a Location of Your Choice

1.) Clear the area as much as possible

What you don’t want is to be knocking all these old appliances with a sledgehammer, just so debris can fly across the room, and smash into any real working TV set you may have. That might make your rage move to another room, we don’t want that….So first and foremost, I think you should clear the room of all valuables. Next I would cover all air filters with plastic just incase you knock microscopic shards of anything airborne. That way it isn’t sucked in through any central AC to another part of the house, or even worse give your AC system issues. I know this is being extra precautions but hey its your house do what you want.

2.) Cover the carpet as much as possible with a heavy duty tarp or canopy…

This is mainly so that if anything were to have any components with a liquor or a chemical you can always roll the tarp off when your done, take it outside, and inspect for gold components, remember when moving and cleaning up debris you should always be wearing a face mask that covers your eyes, your nose and your hair. A respirator would be good to filter the air as you breathe it, trust me its better safe than sorry. Things aren’t made to be smashed in this way. Take care of yourself my friend. Your family will thank you for it.

3.) Protect Yourself as Much as Possible. All plastic rain suits like seen above are perfect

You don’t want any of this small metal and chemical debris ending up in your clothes. Remember just because you don’t see the debris doesn’t mean that it’s not there, even when you flush the toilet after you poop, microscopic poo particles fly into the air (Myth Busters reference, Discover Channel). So protect your clothing, your entire head…eyes, respirator mask, and your hair. Also wear some gloves if your going to be swinging something repeatedly, especially if you work at a job like on the movie Office Space, your hands aren’t made for smashing my friend, you will have some ugly blisters in the morning, even some batting gloves offer adequate protection, just make sure you buy one for each hand.

4.) Setup a Webcam for your Friends to watch Later or Live, Just Record it.

That way everyone is safe! Even makes for a good YouTube video Winking smile I hope you have enjoyed this read, please share with all your friends on as many social networks as possible. I appreciate your continued support of my blog! – http://www.healthydietexercise.com

An effective urinary house remedy for kidney stones, traditionally the pods had been used as a medicinal tonic.Attempt removing the beans from inside the pods, and then boil the pods in purified hot water for six hours. This liquid may be strained through cheese cloth, cooled and taken throughout the day for one day to ease kidney stone pain.


5. Horsetail (Tea not a real horse’s tail…)
Horsetail tea is definitely an effective all-natural remedy for kidney stones. Drink up to 3-4 cups of horsetail tea daily or two grams from the herb in capsule form daily.


6. Pomegranate Juice
We’ve all heard that pomegranates have numerous health advantages. But, more specifically, the seeds and juice of pomegranates can be regarded as an additional all-natural remedy for kidney stones. This may be related to their sourness and astringent properties. I prefer consuming organic pomegranates and drinking freshly-squeezed pomegranate juice.


7. Magnesium
Research show that people with recurrent kidney stones who took magnesium supplements had a 92.three percent improvement price in reduction of kidney stones. 300 mg of magnesium orotate is suggested daily for prevention and reduction of stones.

Celery in vegetable type and celery seed are great urine-promoters and kidney tonics. Normal use of celery seed, as a spice or as a tea, might stop kidney stone formation.

It’s believed that folk remedies with pure basil juice might help induce stone expulsion from the urinary tract.


10. Change in Diet (Real change…Low sodium, and Low Sugar None if possible..)
Unhealthy food intake is really a primary trigger of kidney stones. Reduce down on the amount of soda and power drinks you consume. Steer clear of processed foods and alcoholic beverages. Add much more fruits and veggies to your diet, especially these listed above.


11. Inversion table – Could it help?
It sounds odd, but some research suggests utilizing an inversion table might help pass stone fragments following extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy. Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, in brief, is when a targeted shock wave is sent via the body to break up stones. It seems that inversion therapy assists the body push out the stones.
I also recommend reading the book “The Green Physique Cleanse” to learn how you can steer clear of kidney stone forming foods and beverages.

Remember that the remedies listed above are not intended to replace medical care. If you’re experiencing a lot of pain from kidney stones, see your doctor immediately. For optimal well being, I recommend performing a colon cleanse, liver and gallbladder cleanse, chemical and heavy metal cleanse as well as a harmful organism cleanse a minimum of 1-2 times a year.


Do you've a favorite kidney stone remedy I missed? If so, please leave a comment beneath. Thank you so much for reading!

The Federal DEA Conspiracy Against Hemp, Marijuana, and Incompetent Politicians that Just Don’t Get the American People…

What the Drug Enforcement Agency does to Medical Marijuana dispensaries is the equivalent of cops setting speed traps on Sunday morning to catch old people speeding to church because they are late. You aren’t saving the world guys, in fact your making it worse by wasting tax payer’s dollars, being counter productive and not seeing what is right in front of your face. They are medical dispensaries! There are protected by the state! And still you want to be an asshole? Was there a violent crime last week instigated by smoking too much marijuana? Focus on the problem. No seriously, get it together, see the big picture. If you can’t see this simple solution, right in front of you congressman know-it-alls, grab the reigns, stop thinking of what your peers think. You want votes? Start thinking out side the box.

state-budget-reduction-2012-marijuana-legalization
      Sources: Projected State Deficits (2012) ,Revenue Savings Data Miron Jeffrey (2005), (The Budgetary Implications of Medical Prohibition)

You think the American public doesn’t see this waste of resources, as well as potential for new state taxable income if regulated properly? Look at cigarettes, don’t be hypocritical, since when can the government dictate what I can do to my body? They have NEVER done that. If Phillip Morris can continue to do business, and people are still talking about what havoc would be caused if marijuana was federally legal, should really smoke a joint, the only crime you will commit is eating a bit too many Cheetos.

Get over yourself, and stop listening to your analyst. All of you are puppets. Grow a brain. What have we learned as humans, all of these government organizations need new regulations, I'm no politician, but this shit is ridiculous, pardon my French. Go ask a cop, when he busts a criminal breaking into cars, or into establishments, what their drug of choice is, if it was an honest query, I guarantee, you the real problem, is the harder stuff, the stuff, that makes people steal from their own mothers, and steal from other mothers, and kill their kids all to get their next fix. Some homeless people in most of your neighborhoods have a 10k a week drug habit whether it be oxycontin, or heroin, or crack,. Who cares. Guaranteed, you might bust them with weed sometimes, but that fix they want, the fix they are committing crimes for, is for that harder physically addicting stuff. They feel like they have no choice, where is the DEA on those busts? Instead you want to mess with the dispensaries providing a service, and adhering to state regulations, go ask a heroin addict how many times he's done that…

People want to know who I am going to vote for, what a joke, the Bloods or the Crips, red or blue, all a sham, used to play the American people against each other over issues that are no brainers.
How to Win the Presidential Election For Dummies Vol. 1 – Wake the hell up and Legalize Pot. You see this crowd? Which side do you think holds the majority in every state. C'mon, who is going to grow a pair?

Like gay marriage, it took us how long to legalize it? Just do it! Let them be miserable like everyone else….(sorry only a joke) I digress though, let’s get back on topic….It just really grinds my gears.
Hemp could be a tall, beautiful and gracious serving annual plant that may achieve levels over twelve feet. Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa or, indica) derive from exactly the same types of plant, they will not function as the same and confusion remains triggered by deliberate lies and mis-info with significant effects on socioeconomics and also on political matters, shit, that’s why I don’t vote BECAUSE IT NEVER MATTERS! I am 32 years old, I can see through all of their bullshit, I am the generation, that has sat through, Clinton, Bush, and W. Bush again, I know their screw ups, I know our screw ups, and I know how we will continue to screw up, because that’s what the country is ran by now, oil hungry screw ups, that are masters of misdirection, and fogging the true issues that matter, and potentially save America’s Debt Crisis. The main reason hemp is against the law isn't due to any negative impact on the atmosphere or human health, but precisely the opposite. It's so eco-friendly, nutritionally and medicinally advantageous, it offers so many abundant assets that might make it impossible for effective companies to compete. More importantly, oil, glass, rope, and clothes production, because it has all of these uses, and grows so much better than cotton. The possibilities are endless, and as I said before, what is their rebuttal? They don’t want potheads hanging around schools? Around your favorite restaurant or movie theatre? News flash people, it happens anyway! They aren’t committing a crime, they are making a lifestyle choice, that really by all means, is none of your god damn business. Ben Franklin would be outraged. I mention his name because he is the only guy that was smart enough NOT to be president, and also smart enough to know, that the president is the fall guy, and that’s why he is my hero, as a true founding father, whose IQ was higher than all of our other president’s combined. Without having even been a president.

US Presidents Who Openly Commented and Joked About Their Marijuana Use
  1. Barack Obama – Of course he wrote about his weed, and cocaine abuse as a youth, when he lived with his parents in Hawaii, but he is also on record saying When I was a kid, I inhaled Frequently, That was the point…”
  2. George W. Bush – Widely known in his use to be a cocaine user (he wrote about it, as well) never wanted to answer the questions about Marijuana, I find it strange he was easy to mention cocaine, which is a highly more dangerous and addictive substance that has no medical use whatsoever, in the same category as weed. He is quoted once making a statement about marijuana saying “I don’t want some kid doing what I tried.” – But don’t worry cocaine is cool kids, ok ok, he didn’t say the cocaine part but still, he might as well, since he mentioned the cocaine use and was real hesitate to speak about marijuana. That also leaves a hint on it being in the agenda, as something that isn’t going to happen federally, so he spoke bad about it, once again, putting it int eh same ballpark as his father did with his famous Crack cocaine speech years before. There are no coincidences here people.
  3. Bill Clinton – The famous remark “I did not inhale.” way to stand up to the war on drugs President Bill, no wonder you and President Bush Senior are cool as shit hanging out on yachts making Galveston commercials. You could have said something better than that Bill. Oh, but he DID NOT have sexual relations. Sigh…
  4. Thomas Jefferson – My hero, often wrote letters to general George Washington about his hemp he was growing, also about trades when he got back to the states since Jefferson was a US ambassador. For good reason. Let’s go back to this.
  5. (Many more to list, you can find on Google….I have to finish this article….LOL)
Hemps History, and What it has been used for in the Past…

Hemp is definitely the most universally valuable plant we've got at our disposal. The history of mankind’s use of hemp is often traced way back in time to among about 5000 - 7000 BC. Remains of seed husks have been identified at Neolithic burial sites in central Europe, which indicate that they had been utilized in funeral rites and shamanic ceremonies. It truly is probable that at that time the distinctions in between several strains weren't as pronounced as they may be currently.

Up till and even in the course of WWII, hemp was a extensively grown crop, which offered the world with a fantastic and toughest supply of fiber material. Since it is actually an annual with a growing cycle of only 120 days it may be harvested many occasions a year, based on local weather situations. Its biomass is considerable, which means that it absorbs large quantities of the greenhouse gas CO2. It can be resistant to bugs and calls for little agrochemical remedy. It is extremely undemanding and may be grown in very poor situations and depleted soils and can basically increase the soil structure more than a period of years. For many centuries hemp was one of several most important industrial crops which supplied the fibres for rope and challenging, durable canvass with no which the age of exploration could in no way have set sail.

In the US also, there have long been various guidelines and regulation in place relating to the cultivation of hemp. But in contrast to today’s regulations that strongly prohibit any cultivation of hemp, much less than a century ago hemp cultivation was not just encouraged, but mandatory, with hefty fines becoming levied against farmers who refused. ‘Hemp for Victory’ was the government coined slogan that fueled the final big bout of legal hemp cultivation for the duration of WWII, advertising hemp cultivation as a patriotic trigger.
Intentional Lies About THC Spread by Misinformation Agents of the Global Elite
Hemp is a number of cannabis sativa which has a lengthy history of use within the United states.

The reason for the low THC content in hemp is the fact that most THC is formed in resin glands on the buds and flowers of the female cannabis plant. Industrial hemp is not cultivated to produce buds, and therefore lacks the primary element that types the marijuana higher. Moreover, industrial hemp has higher concentrations of a chemical called Cannabidiol (CBD) that has a negative effect on THC and lessens its psychoactive effects when smoked in conjunction.

Nevertheless, because industrial hemp does not include these buds, and also the hardy components from the plant are the more desired, it can be grown in a wider variety of locations. Usually, industrial hemp grows very best on fields that provide high yields for corn crops, which includes the majority of the Southwest, Southeast, and Northeast United states. Moreover, since industrial hemp can use male plants as well as female plants (because the object is not THC production), greater crop yields can outcome.

Whilst there is virtually no THC within the varieties grown for industrial uses such as oil and fibre, governments have cooperated with powerful corporate lobbyists the make sure that hemp is lumped in to the exact same category as marijuana.

It can be polymerized to create a strong plastic-like material, that is extremely tough, yet nevertheless is totally natural and biodegradable, which could replace plastics in numerous industrial processes.
Car manufacturers are again turning to hemp as a resource to provide light-weight, however shock absorbent and environmentally friendly material for their cars. Due to the higher biomass hemp would also make an ideal supply of ethanol, the very best bio-fuel option to gasoline, which is capable of fuelling engines with out producing all these evil gases that are destroying our atmosphere and poisoning the air.

(That detective, is the right question...)

Although technically hemp isn't illegal to grow in some states, it requires obtaining a special permit from the drug enforcement agency (DEA) to restrict mass production. These permits are rarely given out and need that the crop be surrounded by safety measures like fences, razor wire, safety guards, or dogs. To get a crop which has little-to-no potential to obtain individuals higher, the current attitude is both irresponsible and draconian.

Seriously do potheads want to eat peoples face off like that new designer drug, that is being sold in head shops around the neighborhood, LEGALLY! This is atrocious and we have no one to blame but the US government, all of their proabition-esq tactics to keep Hemp, and Marijuana controlled is highly on the agenda, and it has nothing to do with all of the potheads affect on society.

Look at California, and Colorado! Crime rates have actually dropped, they have a new taxable source of income, and things are great...And it's only legal if you have  medical card. Imagine if the government through out that silly rule. The only way Barack Obama could salvage his last moments as acting President would to legalize marijuana. That is the most ass backwards federal law we have. These DEA cowboys think they are actually making a difference busting these legal marijuana dispensaries on federal charges, when their is probably about 3 meth labs in the vicinity that could blow up at any moment.
How oxy-moronic. The anti-pot legislation is a joke, and let's be serious it's not stopping anyone from doing it anyway. Just let go government tax the shit like you do cigarettes. You care about my health really? Marlboro Reds are government crack...Just saying, yet its all good. It's socially acceptable, and even cigarette smokers are being ostracized.

Don't press your eating habits on me, and don't judge me either, we all have our vices.

The Federal DEA Conspiracy Against Hemp, Marijuana, and Incompetent Politicians that Just Don’t Get the American People…

What the Drug Enforcement Agency does to Medical Marijuana dispensaries is the equivalent of cops setting speed traps on Sunday morning to catch old people speeding to church because they are late. You aren’t saving the world guys, in fact your making it worse by wasting tax payer’s dollars, being counter productive and not seeing what is right in front of your face. They are medical dispensaries! There are protected by the state! And still you want to be an asshole? Was there a violent crime last week instigated by smoking too much marijuana? Focus on the problem. No seriously, get it together, see the big picture. If you can’t see this simple solution, right in front of you congressman know-it-alls, grab the reigns, stop thinking of what your peers think. You want votes? Start thinking out side the box.

You think the American public doesn’t see this waste of resources, as well as potential for new state taxable income if regulated properly? Look at cigarettes, don’t be hypocritical, since when can the government dictate what I can do to my body? They have NEVER done that. If Phillip Morris can continue to do business, and people are still talking about what havoc would be caused if marijuana was federally legal, should really smoke a joint, the only crime you will commit is eating a bit too many Cheetos.

Get over yourself, and stop listening to your analyst. All of you are puppets. Grow a brain. What have we learned as humans, all of these government organizations need new regulations, I'm no politician, but this shit is ridiculous, pardon my French. Go ask a cop, when he busts a criminal breaking into cars, or into establishments, what their drug of choice is, if it was an honest query, I guarantee, you the real problem, is the harder stuff, the stuff, that makes people steal from their own mothers, and steal from other mothers, and kill their kids all to get their next fix. Some homeless people in most of your neighborhoods have a 10k a week drug habit whether it be oxycontin, or heroin, or crack,. Who cares. Guaranteed, you might bust them with weed sometimes, but that fix they want, the fix they are committing crimes for, is for that harder physically addicting stuff. They feel like they have no choice, where is the DEA on those busts? Instead you want to mess with the dispensaries providing a service, and adhering to state regulations, go ask a heroin addict how many times he's done that…

People want to know who I am going to vote for, what a joke, the Bloods or the Crips, red or blue, all a sham, used to play the American people against each other over issues that are no brainers.
How to Win the Presidential Election For Dummies Vol. 1 – Wake the hell up and Legalize Pot. You see this crowd? Which side do you think holds the majority in every state. C'mon, who is going to grow a pair?

Hemp could be a tall, beautiful and gracious serving annual plant that may achieve levels over twelve feet. Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa or, indica) derive from exactly the same types of plant, they will not function as the same and confusion remains triggered by deliberate lies and mis-info with significant effects on socioeconomics and also on political matters, shit, that’s why I don’t vote BECAUSE IT NEVER MATTERS! I am 32 years old, I can see through all of their bullshit, I am the generation, that has sat through, Clinton, Bush, and W. Bush again, I know their screw ups, I know our screw ups, and I know how we will continue to screw up, because that’s what the country is ran by now, oil hungry screw ups, that are masters of misdirection, and fogging the true issues that matter, and potentially save America’s Debt Crisis. The main reason hemp is against the law isn't due to any negative impact on the atmosphere or human health, but precisely the opposite. It's so eco-friendly, nutritionally and medicinally advantageous, it offers so many abundant assets that might make it impossible for effective companies to compete. More importantly, oil, glass, rope, and clothes production, because it has all of these uses, and grows so much better than cotton. The possibilities are endless, and as I said before, what is their rebuttal? They don’t want potheads hanging around schools? Around your favorite restaurant or movie theatre? News flash people, it happens anyway! They aren’t committing a crime, they are making a lifestyle choice, that really by all means, is none of your god damn business. Ben Franklin would be outraged. I mention his name because he is the only guy that was smart enough NOT to be president, and also smart enough to know, that the president is the fall guy, and that’s why he is my hero, as a true founding father, whose IQ was higher than all of our other president’s combined. Without having even been a president.

US Presidents Who Openly Commented and Joked About Their Marijuana Use
  1. Barack Obama – Of course he wrote about his weed, and cocaine abuse as a youth, when he lived with his parents in Hawaii, but he is also on record saying When I was a kid, I inhaled Frequently, That was the point…”
  2. George W. Bush – Widely known in his use to be a cocaine user (he wrote about it, as well) never wanted to answer the questions about Marijuana, I find it strange he was easy to mention cocaine, which is a highly more dangerous and addictive substance that has no medical use whatsoever, in the same category as weed. He is quoted once making a statement about marijuana saying “I don’t want some kid doing what I tried.” – But don’t worry cocaine is cool kids, ok ok, he didn’t say the cocaine part but still, he might as well, since he mentioned the cocaine use and was real hesitate to speak about marijuana. That also leaves a hint on it being in the agenda, as something that isn’t going to happen federally, so he spoke bad about it, once again, putting it int eh same ballpark as his father did with his famous Crack cocaine speech years before. There are no coincidences here people.
  3. Bill Clinton – The famous remark “I did not inhale.” way to stand up to the war on drugs President Bill, no wonder you and President Bush Senior are cool as shit hanging out on yachts making Galveston commercials. You could have said something better than that Bill. Oh, but he DID NOT have sexual relations. Sigh…
  4. Thomas Jefferson – My hero, often wrote letters to general George Washington about his hemp he was growing, also about trades when he got back to the states since Jefferson was a US ambassador. For good reason. Let’s go back to this.
  5. (Many more to list, you can find on Google….I have to finish this article….LOL)
Hemps History, and What it has been used for in the Past…

Hemp is definitely the most universally valuable plant we've got at our disposal. The history of mankind’s use of hemp is often traced way back in time to among about 5000 - 7000 BC. Remains of seed husks have been identified at Neolithic burial sites in central Europe, which indicate that they had been utilized in funeral rites and shamanic ceremonies. It truly is probable that at that time the distinctions in between several strains weren't as pronounced as they may be currently.

Up till and even in the course of WWII, hemp was a extensively grown crop, which offered the world with a fantastic and toughest supply of fiber material. Since it is actually an annual with a growing cycle of only 120 days it may be harvested many occasions a year, based on local weather situations. Its biomass is considerable, which means that it absorbs large quantities of the greenhouse gas CO2. It can be resistant to bugs and calls for little agrochemical remedy. It is extremely undemanding and may be grown in very poor situations and depleted soils and can basically increase the soil structure more than a period of years. For many centuries hemp was one of several most important industrial crops which supplied the fibres for rope and challenging, durable canvass with no which the age of exploration could in no way have set sail.

In the US also, there have long been various guidelines and regulation in place relating to the cultivation of hemp. But in contrast to today’s regulations that strongly prohibit any cultivation of hemp, much less than a century ago hemp cultivation was not just encouraged, but mandatory, with hefty fines becoming levied against farmers who refused. ‘Hemp for Victory’ was the government coined slogan that fueled the final big bout of legal hemp cultivation for the duration of WWII, advertising hemp cultivation as a patriotic trigger.

Industrial hemp could transform the economy from the globe States in a positive and advantageous way, and therefore ought to be exploited to its full potential.

Hector and the Search for Happiness is Such a Great Movie About Happiness

hector and the search for happinessTaking on the insane task of leaving your mark in history, in this day and age, being a regular human being….no different than you, or anyone else... This is something that can make you very hard on yourself.  I set highly unachievable goals, because I know getting close is a feat in itself. This lifestyle sets you up for a lot of disappointment, failures, and some harder to deal with than others.
I have always said knowledge is king, the more you know the better. Now I understand….Experience is king. Knowledge only gives you the opportunity to gain experience, it doesn’t guarantee it.
When I don’t hit my astronomically high goal, it’s nice to know I have touched the lives of so many people in my field, it’s not until I stop ‘grinding’, putting in my ‘all-nighters’ that I get a chance to talk with my long-time friends. My friends that I have known since I was 13+ years old, which do exactly what I do. They live in different states, and countries all across the world. I have been to so many cool places, and seen so many cool things…I am truly blessed. I realize just how much I have helped people in their company, life, or even just with their computer emergency in general…
I don’t do this for the winning, or for billions of dollars, I do it for all the losses, all the hard times, and all the blessings I have in my life. That way when I succeed, I take care of the people I love, that have been putting up with my crazy ass, which actually thinks that one day he is going to change the world… LOL!
Thank you God, for giving me the strength and the gifts  to not only give it a shot, but also the strength, that always gets me back on my feet, just to try it all over again.
This post is dedicated to my Family, Friends, and everyone that fuels my inner flame by asking my favorite question…. “How did you do that?” I love you all. Ok, now back to work! Lol!

Top Tips to Keep Your Blood Sugar Stabilized at Suitable Levels


blood-glucose-optimal-levels-chart-cheat-sheet-diabetics-print-friendly-poster
Keeping your blood sugar at the right levels can be very important. Especially when you are spending time with your love ones, or with people that you do not know very well. It’s very important to not only know your body, but also how to give your system a kick in the right direction so you can always be on top of your game, and live a happier and healthier life. Here are some of the things that doctor’s have recommended to help you keep your blood sugar in check. I am not a doctor, so please, always be cautious taking anyone’s advice about your health over the internet, even me. I only say that because I care about you.

But more and more of us in this modern age suffer blood sugar dysregulation in its various forms: hypoglycemia (blood sugar crashing) hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) insulinemia (high blood insulin levels), diabetes, and insulin resistance, to name a few.

Yet the basic design of your body is self-governing. In other words, your body is designed to automatically correct imbalances and heal itself. And a steady blood sugar throughout the day and night is central to that process. How can you support that innate process of self-regulation, and promote your better overall health and well-being?

Here are a few tips to aid you:


1. The more protein and vegetables you eat, and the fewer carbohydrates, the better of you'll be in supporting your body's blood sugar self regulation.

2. In choosing the carbohydrates you will consume, stick to those with a low glycemic index. A glycemic index is a number assigned to a food that measures how fast any particular carbohydrate increases the sugar (glucose) circulating in your blood. Want to check the glycemic index of foods you eat? Search the internet for 'glycemic index of foods'.

3. When you do eat carbohydrates, combine them with fiber or other foods that slow down the rate of absorption. This helps prevent those damaging blood sugar spikes.

4. Engage in regular, intense exercise. This is especially important if you don't want to take the drug Metformin, the only drug that the American Diabetes Association recommends for the 'prevention' of type 2 diabetes. As reported at medicine.net, while it is true that studies have shown that "Metformin reduced the development of type 2 diabetes by 31%", it is also important to understand that the benefit was not as great as with diet and intense exercise.

The side effects of this drug are many - among the more common, according to drug.com, are abdominal or stomach discomfort/ cough or hoarseness/decreased appetite/diarrhea/ fast or shallow breathing/fever or chills/general feeling of discomfort/ lower back or side pain/muscle pain or cramping/painful or difficult urination/ sleepiness

And, of course, diet and exercise have no side effects.

5. Never never, never consume anything with corn syrup in it. Why? Because corn syrup (regardless of the name by which it is called) kills the beta cells of the pancreas. These are the insulin producing cells that are key to regulating blood, which are currently being used instead of 'high fructose corn sugar. So read every label to check for the following names, which, as reported byhsionline.com are now being substituted for high fructose corn syrup, the label consumers have learned to recognize:

maize syrup /
glucose syrup /
glucose/fructose syrup /
tapioca syrup /
dahlia syrup /
fruit fructose /
crystalline fructose /
glucose-fructose (in Canada) and
isoglucose (in Europe).

6. Many blood sugar problems are caused by parasites, so consider a parasite-cleansing protocol with the help of a qualified health professional.

7. Increase your raw food consumption. Many experts recommend that you consume a minimum of 30% of your diet from raw foods. Why? Because, among other things, they supply the enzymes your body - and especially your pancreas - needs to function well.

8. If you need more than that to get your body's inherent self-regulatory mechanisms working, use the assistance of a holistic health practitioner who can recommend specific strategies for your particular body. In addition to checking for parasites, they can recommend which dietary strategies are best to you. They also know a variety of whole food concentrates and herbal supplements that can return your body's power to regulate itself back where it belongs.

For example, out of three people with basically the same blood sugar dysregulation symptoms and diagnosis, one may need GTF Chromium (GTF stands for 'glucose tolerance factor'), a second may have that aforementioned parasite issue, while the third may need the herb Gymnema ( used for over 3000 years and called the 'sugar destroyer' in Aurvedic medicine). Modern science has now demonstrated that taking Gymnema over 18 months can actually help regenerate the beta (insulin-producing) cells of the pancreas.

The point is, blood sugar problems are symptoms, not causes. Getting to the cause (or causes) not only can resolve them, it can also sidestep that long list of downstream health problems and set you on the road to better health all around. Leave a comment below and let me know how you are making sure you always have the right level of sugar in your blood. Thank you for reading, and share the article with everyone you know!
