Slow Carb Diet
Sam is on a quest to drop his extra weight.
Three Months Later...274lbs
Sam started the slow carb diet on May 20, 2012. All the weight lost has been due soley to the diet. Now, he'll start doing daily workouts on a recumbent bike from Hest Fitness Products. We'll add a new photo a month from now (12/19/12) to see the added benefit of a daily workout.
I posted a collection of Caller Times stories about Destination Bankrupt Bayfront. Scroll down a bit, you'll see the links.
A study says that women overestimate the effectiveness of the Pill and condoms for contraception......But then it’s a lot better than relying on men.......let's get to work..
IN THE BOX....City Councilman Mark Scott. CCPD Chief Floyd Simpson.
Council to decide on left overs from Bond 2008.
Plastic bag ordinance back?
More confusing street work from TxDot.
How easy would it be where you live to leave your car behind or not even have one?
Past City Councils have had Town Hall meetings on Smart Growth or Mixed use pedestrian friendly, and those never seemed to gather much interest.
I came across Walk Score last night, a website that scores homes and neighborhoods for walkability. Their view: "Being able to leave your car at home more often is great for your wallet, your waistline and the environment."
Just type in your address and the web site gives you a ranking between 1 and 100. My neighborhood gets a 51. Included are places to eat, shop, visit parks and local banking. Although I think grocery shopping at Stripes is not gonna cut it. Interesting none the less..
A Jim Wells County commissioner candidate was arrested for the third time on suspicion of driving while intoxicated Sunday.....he also had an outstanding warrant for a previous drunken driving conviction...a Double!
About that "Forward" thing...hasn't that been done before?
Oh, yea, well..that was different...
no, wait, that's not what I meant..
OK...four words....Get the Heck OUT!
President Obama spent part of Monday pandering to unions and verbally attacking Republicans.
"Striking a conciliatory election-year tone, President Obama told an audience of labor union officials that he hasn’t been “a perfect president” but had always stayed true to his pledge to work on their behalf."
This is good, “I just barely can hammer a nail into the wall,” Obama said.Woo-Hoo!
Have we ever had a president who attacked nearly half the states in the republic? Well, we do now. During the same speech President Obama attacked right to work states. Nice.
Then there's this;
Link has been disconnected. I'm not making it easy for you.
So, it's back to academia, where he can continue his “research” financed by US taxpayers.
The EPA official who said in a speech that the agency’s philosophy for dealing with oil producers is to “crucify them” received over $500,000 in federal grants when he was a professor at SMU. The money funded his environmental activism. The Daily Caller has the story:
President Barack Obama appointed Alfredo “Al” Armendariz as the administrator for EPA’s South Central Region (Region 6) in Nov. 2009. Since his appointment he has been a thorn in the side of energy producers.
The “Obama-appointed” label often indicates a movement liberal, and the former Southern Methodist University professor’s Web pages — still hosted on SMU’s website and divided into “teaching,” “research,” and “clean air community service” – indicate both his past environmental activism and the grant money he has collected to carry it out.
“For historical purposes, I will plan on keeping my previously-generated SMU documents on this web page for as long as the IT office at SMU allows,” he explained on the site.
Armendariz’s “research” resume highlights the hundreds of thousands of dollars he received as a professor from government and private institutions for research on pollution and related topics.
Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention paid him $299,032 for a three-year study on the “Control of Workplace Diesel Exhaust Particulate” that ran from 2005 to 2008.
They sent out tweets wishing for Dana Loesch to be raped.
So her husband did what any husband would do...he defended her and..."Earlier this evening my husband, Chris Loesch, had his Twitter account suspended. There have been stories going around of conservatives getting suspended from Twitter over innocuous things while accounts like @KillZimmerman (an account which threatened to kill George Zimmerman) and other such accounts were left active for weeks. After a user remarked about me being raped and murdered, Chris and others defended me."
The account has been restored probably because it was reported on NewsBusters, HotAir, The Washington Times, The Other McCain, iOwnTheWorld, The Conservatory, Daily Pundit and DaTechGuy.
Today is Commie Day, Occupiers in the US and around the globe are planning a massive protest to mark the communist holiday known as International Workers Day, or May Day.
They plan to shut down streets, bridges, god knows what else to voice their discomfort with people actually going to work. Oh, yea, they plan to boycott just about everything.
SOLUTION: I hear Alfredo “Al” Armendariz is out of a job, how about we send him out to grab the first five "Occupiers" he sees, let him "Crucify" them and see if the rest of them head for the hills???...What's wrong with that? Come on...he'd be perfect....
NJ Gov. Chris Christie says Romney could talk him into taking that V.P. slot.
If you are a teen and you bully other teens...that's terrible. But, if a Obama santioned, middle aged man bullies teens, then that's ok? Oh wait, I forgot they are Christian teens...never mind.
One more thing he called the Bible...B.S.....here's the video..and a WARNING...language and high blood pressure.
Will Obama, who constantly lectures the rest of us about civil discourse, condemn his ally Dan Savage, or will this be another example of how the Obama Regime is a Bastion of Bullies?
