“My God. Stop making it so personal. Roberts didn't love the healthcare law, he made a decision based on his interpretation of the constitution and the case law. I bet you fools think defense lawyers just really love criminals. It's the law, it's not personal.”
“That must be why so many people don't open the windows when doing 90 down the highway for 12 hours, because it offends their human values. Not because it is terrible. If I every saw someone doing this at a highway gas station, they would leave in a ambulance and I in a police car, and it would be worth it.”

“Congrads on the weight loss. If you avoid fast food long enough it won't taste good anymore. I use to be a fast food addict, 2 meals a day for 3 years... for real. I'm pretty sure that that bloated feeling from BK is probably from refined carbs and salt, not read meat or fat. Fat doesn't bloat you. I really recommend you read, In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan, might help you in your sparing with those vegans. Now I eat white starch and red meat only 3 times a week, and it's always prime-grass-fed. I feel great.”

“I'm already there at the gross out point with the red meat, but even before I was a well-done steak guy. Seeing "Food Inc." made it preeety easy, actually. With the burgers, I agree it's the combination of everything.
With everybody it's just the personal choices they want to make to give up this or that. If you find a formula that works and you are still happy, hey that's it.
BTW my veg-rawist bro used to be nicknamed "Steak-Off Master". LOL”

“Wow. I'm amazed that people who claim that the world has been let down by scientific absolutism can be so absolutist. Lot's of cultures eat crabs and are much healthier that us. The paleo diet (which seems to be what your espousing) is health, but so are thousands of other ways of eating, just not the western diet. Don't fall into the trap of this "just cut out these kinds of food and you'll be healthy." Thats the same flawed thinking that gave us the low-fat diet.”

“Lots of cultures eat meat, eggs, and dairy, including a lot of dietary fat, and fewer carbohydrates that Americans, are healthier than us, too, so what's your point. And I'm not espousing a "paleo diet" so your assumption is unwarranted, and the "paleo diet" doesn't eliminate carbohydrates anyway, so I don't know what you're talking about (and neither do you, apparently). I'm simply pointing out what the science of human metabolism shows us: fat storage is caused by insulin being triggered in response to consuming carbohydrates. This is not "news" - people have known it since before WWII. But the message got lost during the "low-fat years". Read some research papers by Stephen Phinney, Jeff Volek, or Eric Westman. You can cut carbohydrates (back to what people in the U.S. *used* to eat before in huge spike in carb consumption starting in the late 1970s-early 1980s) without cutting them out entirely or being an outright "low carber," and if you do, fat will come off and your risk of developing type II diabetes will drop like a rock. This is science, not a "fad."”
“"In the past, lawyers could clog up the legal system," Walker said. "Instead, the state Department of Workforce Development gets to be the one that ultimately can put people back and give them up to two years back pay if there is reason to believe there was pay discrimination in the workforce."
Translation: I don't believe in Big Government, unless I control it. This way, I can tell the DWD to do nothing, and those pesky citizens can't do anything about it. What's good for businesses is good for everyone, and by everyone I mean businesses.”

“I'm glad dropping wheat worked for you, but it doesn't work for everyone. Lot's of people eat wheat their whole life and live long, happy, and healthy lives. I, for example, process gluten very well, and find that whole grains are an economical way to keep my belly full.
It is irresponsible to start proclaiming that this food or that food causes all of our dietary woes; this is, after all, what lead us to eat tons of refined carbs instead of whole foods like butter, quality meat and good cheese. Wheat has been considered a real, nutritious and valuable foodstuff for the last 11,000 years, probably longer. Do you really think that ancient wheat-eaters who encountered non-wheat-eaters wouldn't have noticed their superior health? With out a significant amount of non-anecdotal evidence for your claim, I'll keep eating whole grain bread.”

“It's like we have a nation wide eating disorder. Food is suppose to be a pleasure, something that unites us as families and as a culture. Food should never inspire guilt, food should never be seen as just fuel. Dietitians have created a shame based economy where the newest "health food" is lauded then despised when we find out it wasn't really that good to begin with (at least not in such great quantity).
We eat fat free yogurt but consider rich, starchy dessert a 4 time a week thing! We put fat-free mayo on "bread" that contains 40 ingredients and wont go stale for a month! I worked in a restaurant and only about half of people ate all the veggies that came with their enormous steaks, and our portions of veggie was just 2 ounces! Almost everyone polished off the bread basket, except for the whole grain and rye rolls. That's ridiculous! We need to fix our relationship with our food.”

“Awww, lol. I think mine will be the fastest in history. 2 hr time slot at the venue, 25 guests, very basic arrangements that the mothers are taking care of, DONE.
I don't get these women who lose their minds over weddings. They put their passion into the dress, details, etc etc just to impress other women. I know that every little girl is supposed to want the fairy tale wedding, but some of us little girls grow up to be practical women, and we place our priorities elsewhere.
My parents have been married for 37 (38 in July) strong years, his parents 40. THAT is what I'm striving for: longevity and a good, healthy marriage.”

Robert 'Granddad' Freeman: Now the first Soul Plane was funny.

“Agreed. But don't get me wrong, I salt almost every dish I make, I even put a small pinch in my pot of coffee because it cuts the bitterness. But my food is not nearly as salty as restaurant food.”

“yeah, i can be a salt pig -- give me olives, sardines, and a glass of wine and i am one happy camper. i think the weirdest part is they did this by grams -- 1.6 grams salt per 100 grams. How many grams is the average meal at mcdonalds? 100 grams would be a small fry or a single burger -- put them together in a happy meal and you are 3.2 grams salt, add a soda thats 300 more grams -- are they counting a soda in the meal? be glad you can't eat the toy.”

“But if it's just a low-carb book, thats not what i'm talking about. People have been eating grains for a long time, and I think that a moderate amount of whole grains is a good thing.”

“No for everyone. It depends on a person's metabolic type and most do not tolerate grains well and most are not even aware of it. It's a subject of controversy and one can decide which side of the debate they are on.”
