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.
Our friend Dr. J at TAMU-CC sent us a survey. The purpose of this study is to help understand what residents of Corpus Christi know about storm water and what types of behaviors and attitudes they may have that may or may not affect storm water. Must be a resident of Corpus Christi and be 18 or older. Click here to start.

Secret Service Raids Home of Twitter User for... Critical Tweets About Obama?
The head of the country’s National Security Agency testified Wednesday that surveillance has stopped "dozens" of potential terrorist attacks by looking at the phone records, emails and other Internet searches of people suspected of terrorism-related incidents.
President Obama has threatened to veto a bill that would protect military members' religious free speech rights, confirming fears that his Administration plans to target Christians who discuss their faith.
This happened in Arlington Heights, a suburb of Chicago. They don’t need much of an excuse there to take someone’s guns away. Even if they’re antique guns with no ammo. One of them was a musket that was over a century old.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more insane, Rep. Peter King has added his hope for a treason trial against Edward Snowden with a call for the prosecution of journalists. "Rep. Peter King said Tuesday he believes any journalists tied to leaks involving classified programs should be punished.
*and one of them is the government
IN THE BOX.........Doctor Keith Rose.
Did I miss something? Bill Clinton is the ambassador to Belgium?
* A DS agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors.
“The agent began his investigation and had determined that the ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” says the memo.
“The ambassador’s protective detail and the embassy’s surveillance detection team . . . were well aware of the behavior.”
Ever wondered how many Ambassadors the United States, (you) employ? Another interesting thing...The Foreign Service Act of 1980 states that preference should be given to “career members of the Service."
As of July 2012, roughly 70 percent of all ambassadors were promoted from within the Foreign Service, while 30 percent were political appointees
Biden came down pretty hard on the president regarding the NSA spy program:
“I don’t have to listen to your phone calls to know what you’re doing. If I know every single phone call you made, I’m able to determine every single person you talked to – I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question, here is – what do they do with this information that they collect that does not have anything to do with al Qaeda?”... wait that was in 2006......
Yeah, that was 2006 – he was talking about President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
I certainly trusted the last administration a lot more than I trust this current hive of villainous scum. After 9/11 the Bush administration had a pretty good track record of keeping Americans safe from Islamic terror.
The current Regime has declared the War on Terror over, and has instead waged a low intensity war on its domestic enemies – i.e. people who identify as Christians, patriots, veterans, and believe in the Constitution, and limited government, etc. That’s why we’ve seen an uptick of terrorist attacks on American soil throughout the Obama years, and conservatives groups have been targeted for harassment by the government.
It’s a sickening situation made even more nauseating by the abject hypocrisy on display by so many Democrats – the President and Vice President first and foremost among them.
I found this amusing.
This administration has definitely opened itself up to mockery even though the subject matter itself is far from funny.
But on the other hand, one almost have to laugh to keep oneself from sinking into chronic depression or a catatonic state as the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave’ is now evidently completely dominated and governed by people who think nothing of building multi-billion dollar facilities devoted to spying on American citizens – and tracking and recording every word on the internet and every thought expressed in email.
Turkey is on fire. Tear gas and water cannons.
Another shooting – another serious crisis not to be wasted by liberals. Moonbat California Senator Barbara Boxer hopes the shooting on the Santa Monica College campus, which left six people dead, including the gunman, will “give us wind at our back” in the push for gun control. Barack Obama seen furiously nodding in approval.
In the middle of IRS scandals over the targeting of conservative groups and lavish taxpayer-funded conferences, yet another troublesome story has surfaced: the agency is buying covert surveillance equipment. The IRS is also buying four cameras to hide in plants:
“(QTY 4) plant-concealment color IP cameras, single-channel network server, supports dual video stream, poe [power over ethernet], software included, case included, router included.”
Oh, and two “concealed clock radios.”
So, why all the James Bond stuff?
Question of the day: Can you imagine San Francisco – or any other American city – using tax-payer dollars to build a Christian prayer room? Yeah, me neither.
However, the far-left City by the Bay has no problem building a prayer station for its Muslim cabbies – and a foot bath to boot.
Why do we bend over backward for these folks?
Milwaukee singer/songwriter Glen Shulfer wrote a new song called “Requiem for Benghazi” which pays tribute to the Benghazi and Fast & Furious victims while lamenting the Regime’s sad willingness to LIE.
Is your computer bugging your house? Well, it has has a microphone, probably a camera, is it sending sound and pictures from inside your house to the PRISM program at NSA?
We have a listener named Jim, yesterday he brought up something he's talked about before. This is a picture of it...
Obama's $1.9 billion Bat Cave in the Utah Valley.
Is Lying to congress is a serious offense?
CBS News is reporting that the State Dept. has been covering up criminal activity such as drug use, solicitation of prostitutes and even sexual assault by members of the State Department’s security force (DSS), and diplomatic staff and ambassadors in foreign countries. Full report and video.
The IRS scandal is deepening as a new tape has been released today showing IRS staff making a phone conversation that the Internal Revenue Service placed to a non-profit organization...."Keep your faith to yourself"...But this is what?? Can you imagine someone in our overnment telling CAIR for example, "keep your religion to yourself"?
IN THE BOX.....Congressman Blake Farenthold. Good morning Mr. and Mrs. America and all the spies in D.C!
Just one thing for today. Then a question.
