My personal High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) analysis...

Did you know most European countries have banned High Fructose Corn Syrup? If you're not aware, don't worry. Most Americans are unaware of this little bit of information because our "free press" will not report certain things, and because most of us rely on the "free press" to keep us informed, we are all living in our own delusional bubbles, but thankfully, there are websites out there that still report relevant information other than whether or not Britney Spears does or does not wax her vagina.

I keep harping on the "free press" issue because, when I find out HFCS is banned in European Countries and not here, I'm floored. We the People should know stuff like this.

I think the fact that HFCS is banned in European countries says something about the FDA in America because you need to ask, "Why would the European countries ban HFCS?" And the question leads to some startling revelations about HFCS, which is now in just about everything you buy at your local market.

First, did you know that some manufacturers use Mercury in the process of making HFCS (not in the US anymore but overseas and those products find their way to American shelves)? Mercury is a deadly neurotoxin, which has been linked to numerous illnesses, and residual levels have been found in HFCS after processing.

Second, given the fact that HFCS is an unnatural processed chemical sweetener, it isn't ingested into the body the way other natural sweeteners like sugar are, and there are "side effects," which I'll explain. One of those side effects of a very powerful unnatural sweetener is this: it overwhelms and therefore desensitizes the hunger receptors in the brain, which tell the body when it's "full." In other words, I believe, the reason you are seeing so many fat asses in America has to do with Americans being overwhelmed by eating unnatural foods.

So, I conducted a little experiment recently. It involved driving to Dublin, Texas and visiting a Dr. Pepper plant that still makes Dr. Pepper with Emperial Pure Cane Sugar.

I bought 2 cases of Dr. Pepper, which by the way, does not contain prune juice as so many douche bags out there claim it does! So there!

I bought 2 cases of Dr. Pepper, and for the last month I have been drinking Dr. Pepper with pure cane sugar, and I have noticed several differences about my body's digestion. The first thing I've noticed is I've stopped breaking out. It would seem I've have been having an allergic reaction to HFCS, which is an indication the HFCS overwhelms more than just my digestion.

Another thing, whenever I go to the bathroom, it's different. I don't want to say how, but suffice it to say, I believe, HFCS was causing something bad to happen in how I digest, and it has stopped now that I'm not drinking HFCS anymore.

You don't have to take my word for it, if you've got a soda addiction, and you love Dr. Pepper, but can't stand the crap at Whole Foods. You can conduct this experiment for yourself, and I recommend you do. All it will cost is around $30 bucks. Call 1-888-398-1024 to Dublin, TX and order 2 cases of Dublin Dr. Pepper, which they'll ship to you via UPS. Take yourself off HFCS for a couple of weeks, and see if I'm not full of shit. I dare you.

Kasabian "Clubfoot" The Breeders "Cannonball"

This song by The Breeders is one of those rare especially kick ass songs. Don't you agree?

Daniel Hannen rips Gordorn Brown a new one!

This guy could have just have easily used this same speech to rip George Bush and Barak Obama a new one.

George Carlin "The Owners of This Country"

RIP Mr. Carlin.

Dare I say, you will not find a truer, more concise summary of the American political system anywhere. His statements are true today. They were true 20 years ago, and I hate to say, but they'll be true 20 years from now.

Americans have their heads completely and deeply lodged in there ass sideways.

It's time to wake up America. Barack "I read what I'm told to read off the teleprompter" Obama is not going to save you. He's a member of "the club," and as George Carlin would say, "You ain't in it!"

Nick Drake "One Of These Things First" "Pink Moon"

Very few people know who Nick Drake is, but once you hear his music, there's an undeniable reaction to really love these 2 songs, but I'll be honest his other music is not so great.

"Wake up, pal! If you're not inside, you're outside" Gordon Gekko

The above quote is from the movie "Wall Street", and to me, this quote is the most memorable line.

As someone who used to trade stocks for a living, I understand that trading follows little rhyme or reason, and the reason is because Wall Street is a game rigged by the insiders, which is why I feel Gordon Gekko's line is probably the truest line in the movie.

If you watched the recent interview between Jim Cramer and Jon Stewart you may recall Jon Stewart nailed Cramer for his unethical practices. First, Cramer tried to play like the innocent victim saying "I didn't know" until Stewart played the clip that showed Cramer admitting the practices he participated in when he managed a Hedge Fund. Cramer gave an interview a few years ago where he explained how to manipulate the stock market by first manipulating the futures market. The practice is a little bit complex, but suffice it to say, people with a lot of money can make the market move in any direction they want it to move, and this happens all the time.

In other words, Cramer knows the market is giant rigged game, but he gets up on his show and acts like some kind of talking monkey, and some people actually are dumb enough to believe he's their "friendly advisor."

All these Wall Street fat cats and their minions on CNBC know the stock market isn't really set up for the little guy to win. It's set up for the big players bleed the little guys dry, and their networks like CNBC act as their cheerleaders egging on the little guys. "Hey guys, just put your 401k with us. Over the long run you'll make money," is the standard message. Listen to any of the "advisors" for more than 5 minutes and those words will come out of their mouth.

But the reality is sometimes the market goes down 50%, and it takes 15 or 20 years just to reach the "break even" point again. Does that sound like a winning proposition for anyone who wants to retire at 55? Companies like CNBC do a disservice to the American people when they don't talk about these kinds of scenarios, and they never do, which is why I don't think anyone should listen to anything the people on CNBC say. Or better yet, you're probably doing the exact opposite of whatever they're recommending because they are almost always wrong.

People need to recognize that CNBC doesn't have We the People's interests, but rather they represent the Wall Street vipers. How many times have they let some lying douchebag CEO come on and lie his ass off about his company's prospects. Then, every time something devastating happens the commentators on CNBC act like--"Wow, we never saw that coming," which I find to be a tad disingenuous. How can people, who are so smart, who have more degrees and experience than most, always be so dumbfounded by these catastrophes.

Ultimately, what's wrong with the stock market goes back to what Gordon Gekko said, "Wake up, pal! If you're not inside, you're outside." Unless you know all the little intricacies of what's going on in the market, why trust that someone is going to do the right thing, when they have their own mortgages and their kids to send to college?

I really think the answer to all Wall Street's problems from the "little guy's perspective" is openness. That's the only way to find the people, who are committing fraud, and I personally believe there are still a ton of people out there committing fraud because they can get away with it, and I wouldn't trust the market until this issue of openness is addressed and sweeping changes are made.

Moreover, I believe these "stimulus packages" and "bailouts" are covering up the criminal behavior, which is another reason why I wouldn't trust the market.

I've had conversations where I have called this commercial the best commercial ever!

Watch and enjoy!

The song is "Pink Moon" by Nick Drake.

Also, I think VW's Cabrio was one of the coolest cars on the market because of the way it drove and the way it looked.

Cramer vs. Stewart

Anyone watch the interview?

I watched it twice. Jon Stewart ripped him a new one. He pointed out that CNBC keeps putting CEOs that lie their asses off about the condition of company, and this is an outrageous conflict of interest. Instead of being journalists they are allow CEOs to come on and act like cheerleaders for ships that are sinking like the Titanic.

I probably felt like everyone else who watched the interview, which is, I will probably never spend another minute watching CNBC. Like some, I was kind of sitting on the fence in my opinions about CNBC, but now, the scale has been tipped to where it's more than obvious there isn't a soul at that network that isn't 100% on the side of Wall Street.

Moreover, I think Stewart's arguments were that good. Cramer knew better, and a simple apology does not suffice when he advised people to invest in companies that were a house of cards.

This was the interview where Cramer lost what little credibility he had left.

"Imagine" by Ron Paul (

Wednesday, March 11, 2009
Imagine for a moment that somewhere in the middle of Texas there was a large foreign military base, say Chinese or Russian. Imagine that thousands of armed foreign troops were constantly patrolling American streets in military vehicles. Imagine they were here under the auspices of “keeping us safe” or “promoting democracy” or “protecting their strategic interests.”Imagine that they operated outside of US law, and that the Constitution did not apply to them. Imagine that every now and then they made mistakes or acted on bad information and accidentally killed or terrorized innocent Americans, including women and children, most of the time with little to no repercussions or consequences. Imagine that they set up checkpoints on our soil and routinely searched and ransacked entire neighborhoods of homes. Imagine if Americans were fearful of these foreign troops, and overwhelmingly thought America would be better off without their presence.
Imagine if some Americans were so angry about them being in Texas that they actually joined together to fight them off, in defense of our soil and sovereignty, because leadership in government refused or were unable to do so. Imagine that those Americans were labeled terrorists or insurgents for their defensive actions, and routinely killed, or captured and tortured by the foreign troops on our land. Imagine that the occupiers’ attitude was that if they just killed enough Americans, the resistance would stop, but instead, for every American killed, ten more would take up arms against them, resulting in perpetual bloodshed. Imagine if most of the citizens of the foreign land also wanted these troops to return home. Imagine if they elected a leader who promised to bring them home and put an end to this horror.
Imagine if that leader changed his mind once he took office.
The reality is that our military presence on foreign soil is as offensive to the people that live there as armed Chinese troops would be if they were stationed in Texas. We would not stand for it here, but we have had a globe-straddling empire and a very intrusive foreign policy for decades that incites a lot of hatred and resentment towards us.

According to our own CIA, our meddling in the Middle East was the prime motivation for the horrific attacks on 9/11. But instead of re-evaluating our foreign policy, we have simply escalated it. We had a right to go after those responsible for 9/11, to be sure, but why do so many Americans feel as if we have a right to a military presence in some 160 countries when we wouldn’t stand for even one foreign base on our soil, for any reason? These are not embassies, mind you, these are military installations. The new administration is not materially changing anything about this. Shuffling troops around and playing with semantics does not accomplish the goals of the American people, who simply want our men and women to come home. 50,000 troops left behind in Iraq is not conducive to peace any more than 50,000 Russian soldiers would be in the United States.
Shutting down military bases and ceasing to deal with other nations with threats and violence is not isolationism. It is the opposite. Opening ourselves up to friendship, honest trade and diplomacy is the foreign policy of peace and prosperity. It is the only foreign policy that will not bankrupt us in short order, as our current actions most definitely will. I share the disappointment of the American people in the foreign policy rhetoric coming from the administration. The sad thing is, our foreign policy WILL change eventually, as Rome’s did, when all budgetary and monetary tricks to fund it are exhausted.

Alex Jones: End the Fed

This guy, aenfroy87, makes YouTube videos that are off the charts kickass! You must watch this video, or better yet, subscribe to his YouTube channel.

I've already watched a lot of these videos, but this guy has the ability to go back and pull all the videos together to put together a very powerful and clear message.

The World According To Monsanto

You wouldn't know it by watching American TV, but there is a war going on for food sovereignty.

If Mansanto has their way we will all be eating genetically modified foods, and nothing but genetically modified foods. That's not good.

For one thing it's destroying indigenous crops and putting millions of small farmers out of business.

Also, you might of heard about Roundup--Monsanto's herbicide. Would it surprise you to know it's poisonous and it causes cancer.

Also, one of Monsanto's chemical plants knowingly poisoned a small town for decades.

prom•ul•gate |ˈpräməlˌgāt; prōˈməl-|

promote or make widely known (an idea or cause) : I've been promulgating for some time now politicians in Washington have their heads completely lodged in their asses.

JFK's assistant press secretary Kilduff announcing JFK was killed by a bullet to the forehead (not the back of the head)

This video was showed (maybe) once, and it wasn't shown again.

Is there anything more compelling than that?

Clearly JFK was killed in a coup d'état.

Enough said.

Are you living a conscious or unconscious life?

"The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist..."

This is a quote from "The Usual Suspects"

It was when Kevin Spacey (Virgil Kent) (sp) was talking about Keyser Soze.

"And like that, poof. He was gone."
