I top. I already top, but I'm a very considerate, loving, tender top. I even help with the washing and the laundry and the groceries......but if I say "wrists" I expect wrists, not frowns.
The town of Byron Maine is voting on whether each household should be required to own a firearm and ammunition. This law would be unenforceable because Maine law bars municipalities from legislating on firearms. If we have the freedom to bare arms in the United States that means we also have the freedom not to bare arms if we so choose. People should not be forced to have guns anymore than the people should have their guns taken from them. This strikes me as a big government intrusion. I'm sorry, you don't have the right to "bare" arms, you are COMPELLED to bare arms unless you have a concealed gun permit.Maybe you meant... "bear arms" ? That right comes only if you can prove you can spell... sorry, try again next time...PS Byron, Maine is NOT Government; the Governor of Maine is "government", as are Congress and the POTUS; but the local Mayor is just that, the local Mayor.
TWO COMMENTS:1. Europeans are rapidly ricing on the obesity scale: define "European"; Portuguese ? Greek ? Swede ? They are all European, YET they are all a good 5000 Km from each other and belong to ethnic groups which are so different, the statement simply doesn't make sense.On the other hand, ever since the 1970, when Kraft and other "pseudo-fake imitation of looks like food" producers started selling "school snacks", the weight of the average school age child has increased... not nice. In the old days, a school child would have an apple, or a home made sandwich as snack, now it's all industrial junk foods made with hydrogenated fats. UGH !2. Alansgirl23, if you REALLY ate Paleo, you'd be starving... I'm sorry for the hole in your palate (you really should learn to spell...) but in Paleo days that would have seen you dead by week two of your life, so don't complain. Paleo man ate an array of foods you would refuse simply because you are American. You don't believe me? Paleo didn't eat steak, nor burgers, but he would eat raw liver fresh out of his game's body, as he would eat the heart, kidneys, spleen, lungs and brain. There are many ways to cook these, check oput Italian or Jewish (or Polish or Russian) cookbooks - the really good ones, not the "spaghetti bolognese" ones. Similarly, cows' feet, pork's legs, fish stew... Paleo didn't need to ZUMBA to feel fit and healthy, he would WALK and RUN all day.Stop driving to Wally's, I don't care if it's a full mile away, walk there and back, see how you feel after a week's grocery shopping. THAT's PALEO, what you describe is a food fad.

Liked it BUT Sam L. Jackson's house boy was sooo paternal to Di Caprio , for a moment I thought a hat trick was going to pop up at the end of the film, such as him crying on DiCaprio's body "that's my son you shot!"(Else, how could the House Boy go to the Reading Room, pour himself a shot of Whyskey and sit in the leather chair AND address DiCaprio in such a way ???)
I don't support pedophiles. So he can go and fuck him self. Hmmm... I don't support Danes, two legged, beer swilling dogs if I ever saw one... hypocrites like there was no tomnorrow...Yep, even had one as my boss a few years ago, we all had a party the day after he left, the new boss was a Norwegian and he thought of Danes the same as we did.ORYou can simply say "I am not Catholic, I am not interested".The Church started out in the days of Jesus with married priests, deacons and vicars.The Church accepted the classical Roman (=pagan) rule of obligatory celibacy arount the Council of Nicaea, when it became obvious that they had to accept some of the rules of the "older" religions if they were ever going to successfully have them convert to Christianity.That's when the Priests were MADE to become celibate, the Nuns MADE to accept nubility, and a lot of simbology was imported from other religions:- Bishops' headgear "Mitra"comes from Persian cult of Mythras, as does the tiny RED candle of perennial (eternal) fire which is lit next to the Tabernacle (Jewish) where the Host (Egyptian) is preserved;- the Host (Egyptian) is exhibited in a "Ostensorium" (Latin pagan) in the shape of the Sun (Sol Invictus, the One God, Giver of Light and Life, as in Egyptiasn Pharaoh Akhenaton, who refused the many gods and insisted on the One God, which manifested itself as the Sun)- Vestements of Priests is Roman, from the shape to the names of the individual items to the color coding during holidays- Religious Calendar is ROMAN, not Christian, with the sole exception of Easter (1st Sunday after the 1st full moon after the Spring Equinox) which is a solar variation of the Jewish lunar calendar- All other festivities, from Christmas on, are pagan carried on into Christianity.- Architecture of all churches from the 1st century up until the 19th century is Classical Roman; the Byzantine/Romanesque/Gothic/Barocque styles are merely aesthetic variations on the classical fundamentals.Take it from an Italian Catholic, if you were to come to Italy you'd see pagan deities clothed and dressed as Madonnas, Jesus and whatnot, when in reality they are Vesta, Diana, Minerva, Apollo, Hercules...See this youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgBk1coQ8hA http://www.ecotur.org/altre-immagini/immagini_escursioni/14/ingrandita_14.d1333639609.jpg ... not to mention the many times painters depicted Mary Magdalene and were forced to rename the painting "Virgin Mary" or be burned at the stake!!! http://www.gazzettadifirenze.it/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/botticelli-madonna.jpg By Botticelli...
I am an obese man. Do I consider myself disabled? Not even a little bit. Every pound I gained was due to my poor choices. Sometimes spending as much as two hundred a month on fast food. Just for me! Gawed damn I'm a sorry excuse for a human being. Two years ago I broke the scales at 537 lbs. I could break a sweat by walking to the mailbox. It was the lowest I have ever sunk. So I started to work on my issues. Joined a gym, stopped eating out, and made better overall choices. It was hard at first. In fact every day is a struggle. Yet I have lost close to 80lbs. Just by using common sense in planning my meals. My plan is to increase my workouts and be under 350 before this year is over. Being fat is not a disease. It is a buffet of bad choices. As a European, and an Italian at that, who lived most of his boyhood life in the US (Fairfax Co. VA), I was ready to leash out on this thread, until I read Mr.Niceguy's post; I agree with him 100%.When a highschool teenager in the US, my physique was... mouth watering (I still have the pics my mother took of me at the swimming pool, or at the gym during my wrestling matches)Once my family and I returned to the Old World, my diet also became "Old World" and, with the help of an inexistent P.E. curriculum, I piled on pound after pound, by the dozen.When I enlisted, I was borderline overweight and quite possibly made it because of my language skills.; my height/weight ratio was NOT mouthwatering anymore, unless you were a Samoan headhunter...During these last 35 years, I have had good times and bad times. There were times I was lonely, heartsick, too shy to pick myself up and go and chat up a girl and court her, and I would eat... Then there was that time I casually met a girl who thought I was "crazy and provoking" and accepted a first date, then a second, then a third......and her cooing ways convinced me to start eating less and lose my excess weight - and her "prizes" were most convincing :d/ We have been married these last 23 years and are looking forward to another 23 to say the least... The primary reason to obesity IS overeating, and overeating foods excessively rich in sugar, fat and salt, in that order.When I was a teenager in the US (way back in the '70s) pizza was considered "junk food" not because it was unhealthy, but because it was "unAmerican".On the other hand, Fritos Corn Chips, Candy Canes, KFC chicken and fried bacon was "American, hence healthy". I travel to the USA on a regular basis, and have noticed there are some eating habits which are hard to discourage, and food misinformation which is hard to dislodge.Take salads, for example: why eat a healthy salad, if you ruin it with a 1000Island dressing which is basically mayonnaise with ketchup?Bluecheese, which is bluecheese and mayonnaise ? (that's what they declare on the label if you reassemble the ingredients - I personally use milk)Why not the traditional mediterranean olive oil, salt and vinegar?Why do you folks insist on "vegetable oil" (which is derived from flower seeds) which is nutritionally recommended for frying, but not for direct eating, or even rapeseed and linseed oil (the latter of which is only used by carpenters, woodworkers and restorers of antique furniture, but NEVER for eating in the Mediterranean !!!)What's wrong with olive oil, which is healthy, tried and tested and quoted in the Bible ?America needs a culinary culture, and needs one FAST ! It is not a matter of airing cooking shows on TV, but of eating education in schools.From that point of view, Mrs. Michelle Obama's campaign for healthy eating in schools was spot on.It is absurd that the only people below 40, in a fit&healthy physical condition, are the military and TV drama casts (except for all the men in "According to Jim")That, at least, is the stereotype we have here in Europe, when US tourists step off the plane... http://upload.lushstories.com/9726525-Fat American Tourists.jpg http://upload.lushstories.com/606423150-Obese in the World.gif
Actually, The 911 operator should be the one that is terminated. A phone operator is going to question a health care professional about thier patient care? really? I think this is a case where the nurse why just lying to the operator, to safeguard against breaching patient confidentiality, A major " DON'T" in the health care industry. Even disclosing that her patient was DNR to a 911 operator would be a breach. Not only would the nurse lose thier job, but also thier nursing license. Patient information is given out on a need to know basis and only given to personel DIRECTLY related to providing her with health care, or say a diagnostic service. The operators job is to get EMS dispatched asap and that's all. There is nothing the operator can do that is going to directly change that patients status. Patients have a right to privacy. therefore, all information regarding patients and thier care is classified as confidential, and only given on a need to know basis. I disagree. Anybody's right to privacy is never as strong as the right to live. If you disagree to this statement, go out, get mugged, stabbed and shot, then see whether you want the 911 operator to limit his activities to dispatching EMS onsite or whether you expect him to ask questions in order to determine your state of urgency and thus your priority on the plethora of 911 calls in any medium-large city.My wife is a doctor, a GP (General Practitioner, aka Family Doctor). She cannot refuse to visit a neighbor, if critical, even if said neighbor is not officially one of her patients. It's a crime and she would be arrested for that.I am aghast that an old people's home (or whatever) has a blanket DNR policy, it should not have been allowed to operate by the local authorities because it is a breach on the individual's right to live.De facto, it should be grounds for charges of manslaughter.
If we all go back and delete all personal tit-for-tat rants at one another, this 3-page thread would count a mere dozen entries.So please knock it off before I buy a three-way plane ticket and allow myself the vacation of a lifetime, and spank you all girls and wussies ! black sheep smiley?)
