  • I gave up gluten and here's what happened

    11/18/2013 10:56:04 AM PST · 120 of 144
    techworker to TurboZamboni

    I can’t believe the negativity on this thread. I guess it’s one thing to be suspicious of all the newfangled fads but sheesh I have never felt better. Ketosis....

    I don’t eat gluten period. I don’t eat any grains. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac and am almost certain I don’t have it. If I have a cheat meal (have twice since June) I go into a Carb-Coma so I try to make it dinner if at all possible.

    Grains, Sugar, Starches, Beans. I don’t eat any of those. Down 88 pounds this year and most of that since my son graduated in late May. I am not going back that’s for sure. Just hoping at 45 years old it’s not too late, meaning my pancreas and gallbladder had too many years of abuse.

    Liquor - Occasionally will have light beer, it’s low carb, but not too many. Most days try to keep NetCarbs under 20g, but sometimes go closer to 50. Otherwise I might have some kind of whisky, as the distilling process kills off the toxic proteins anyway, but more importantly there isn’t really a carb rush from the hard liquor.

    Pizza - Easy, I made burnt cheese pizza when I get this fix. My kids like it better than regular pizza although they might exaggerate.

    Beef, Eggs, Bacon, (Pork), Cheese. Pickles, Apple Cider Vinegar swigs, Broccoli, Cauliflower.

    Fruit, I keep somewhat lowish more for weight loss reasons. at 6’1” down to 230, and need to get to 195 to be studly. Will have berries with whip cream though. (Blue-Black-Rasp-Straw) I just keep it to a couple times per week.

    I personally don’t care if I make no sense from a libertarian standpoint. I choose not to be pro-abortion because I value the liberty of the child. Not that difficult. If you want to point out how I am inconsistent with pure Libertarian thought, fine, I am, so be it. And consistency or lack thereof back and forth is something we can play all day. We all make choices and compromises. Also this is why I use the small “l”.

    And I could be taking your points and combining with several I’ve seen on these threads over the last couple of weeks.....which I should not be doing. There are in fact some real simpleton’s who like to jump into these threads.

    “Unable to address the social issues that divide libertarian and conservative ideologies (because you can’t), you throw a tantrum, hurl an insult and walk away pouting. Typical.”

    Because you continue to call him a Libertarian despite his repeated assertions of being a libertarian? What’s left to discuss. This argument that goes on, is about as ignorant as engaging a liberal who uses phrases like “teabagger” and “racist”. Might as well just walk away. You people in thread after thread continue to insist that everyone who even hints at being libertarian-minded as being a card-carrying member of the Libertarian party. No matter how many times the other person says they are not, the idiotic accusations continue.

    Like I said I might as well be arguing with a sycophant liberal who says the tea party is racist. You both have about the same level of intellectual curiosity.

    Colonel in a world with many entertainment choices, choosing to not watch something, not a big deal. I sometimes avoid things for awhile that I intend to get into at some point and end up not (Ron Swanson for instance).

    I do happen to like MMA. If you’ve ever been around something like NCAA Wrestling, many of your greatest MMA fighters were amazing wrestlers back in their college days. Though I haven’t verified my 18 year old son who is himself an athlete in college loves this stuff and tells me that Heavyweight Champ Cain Velasquez didn’t nose an NCAA wrestling match his last two years of school.

    Now don’t get me wrong, the wrestlers have to ground and pound, but having been in a few fights and losing one in a ground and pound situation, the blows weren’t quite as strong with me on my back and him punching from his knees. Though I did get a nasty black eye. I of course was a boxer and basketball player and the dang wrestler types knew the only chance they had was to get me down and this guy did it. I can assure you stand up boxing with gloves, the full punches were far worse (and as stupid teens we didn’t wear the amateur head gear).

    MMA I would imagine doesn’t have nearly the long-term effects on the brain as boxing and potentially not as much as football.

    Not even close. However since you don’t watch it I wouldn’t expect you to know that, I am not criticizing you, just pointing out the facts. Many of the matches are decided by submissions, and there isn’t nearly the number of violent shots taken to the brain as in boxing.

    I agree too much is not known.

    I wonder if this guy was super soft and an easy mark, it doesn’t really even make a lot of sense to me. Rarely if ever, does a black guy who is by himself look at me in a menacing way, nor would I, him. I always strive to look edgy and mean while minding my own business. I am not saying the guy couldn’t kick my ass, but I at least like to give an impression that you are better off finding someone else to screw with.

    And my point is I can’t imagine two women starting in on me for something like this. Frankly I wouldn’t even engage them, I’d shrug my shoulders in an apologizing way, and keep right on walking. Perhaps he was stumbling around and drunk? Again not saying the guy deserved it, I am just wondering why so much detail is left out.

    No, no, no, no. You are the one who consistently goes straight to the Libertarian party platform as a reference as if one single person arguing with gives a rat’s behind what the LP platform is.

    I stand by my thoughts, perhaps you didn’t understand my point and I’ll say another way. I am merely pointing out that conservatives on social issues do not bother me unless, of course they create a worldview full of logical fallacy like you do.

    I am in a very right-wing world as far as work, my kids school, most of my friends, etc. and I speak freely this way, none of my friends think of me as a leftist. Rather they think I am a little too far right. I will vote for Social conservatives. As long as they are not candidates who come from the tree of Bush-Cheney-Rove-Kristol etc. No matter what they think about gay marriage, I will never ever vote for one of these big-government statists.

    You have a top priority as do I, mine is anyone who voted against de-funding the NSA is out. Anyone defending prism or bashing Snowden, out. I’d also love to see DHS cut, but am not holding my breath. Do you see any reason why I wouldn’t vote for Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin? Bachmann, no freaking way, she attacked Snowden and went against Amash she is dead to me. I can’t put another big government statist back in office. Rand Paul or Cruz, otherwise I’ll be sitting this one out.

    So what about you?

    I don’t fight with social conservatives, I fight with you. It doesn’t have anything to do with social conservatism, it’s your lack of logic and incorrect factual assertions. You are not the embodiment of social conservatism. Check that ego, ansel12. I sometimes clash with (L)libertarians, too, and leftists all the time. You aren’t special, unfortunately. I actually agree with you on most of the issues, but your reasoning is just awful, your factual information is lacking, and you are a most unpleasant person as a result. The lying is the worst part. If somebody posted that reading John Wesley turned people into Zoroastrians, I would put that person in the same file as you.

    Here, here. I think that these arguments are terribly dishonest.

    I have been here since the late 90s (though I can't remember my old screen name) because I am a conservative.. I detest abortion, attend church, send my kids to a very conservative christian school that folks in town might think of as "fundie factory". Yet these threads devolve into some of the most ridiculous arguments by people so hard-headed that we are all liberals? Good lord people, we are further right than you statists.

    Ansel I'll tell you what happened. I woke up to what the Republican party has become. Aren't you in the exact same boat as me, and ticked at the GOP? Haven't you suggested as much? First off, what would be so hard about acknowledging that common ground? All of us here are likely disgruntled.

    Here is the difference between you and I.

    I consider people as passionate as you are about this stuff as being on my side, you just have a couple of issues that you find more important to focus upon. You on the other hand think those of us who are sick of endless wars, the police state, the TSA, the NSA, domestic drones, prism. etc. as being liberals.

    Also, how hard is it for you to stop comparing any of us to the Libertarian party? You can't even do that for the sake of discussion? You've been asked repeatedly, and you refuse, are you afraid of something?

    OK LJ. Now I see the crux of the issue. You use this analogy to make your point:

    One thing they dance around is when you ask them something like: “Okay, you want no laws against any kind of porn, sodomy, same sex marriage/adoption/in the military/drugs and so on - federal laws. I’m fine with that. What about STATES enacting such laws?” They generally leave the discussion cold at that point. Some have admitted to me that the states have no business making such laws either.

    So, now I see what's going on here and that is you have a perverse need to get inside their head. So someone from a more libertarian thought process says it's a states issue not something for the federal government to decide. But you press further.

    You have a twisted need to get deep inside their head. You'd make a great statist, you should apply to the TSA or NSA. Maybe DHS. We'll need folks who can probe to find out what really drives patriots so we can root them out.

    What you are attempting to do here isn't much different than the movie Minority Report. Everyone's brain must be clean before LJ can accept them. Shoot you might want to think about being an instructor in the re-education camps.

    My goodness where were these dinosaurs during the Amash NSA vote? Quietly hiding I suppose.

    Listen, your theory? I don’t even know how someone could come up with that.

    RINOs are really what one might call Neo-Conservatives. NeoCons, to use extreme over-simplification as you illustrate you are capable of....NeoCons, are basically Big Govt. Democrats who like war and occasionally throw a bone towards Christians (passively). At what point did Bush/Cheney attempt to slash government? When does John McCain not support a massive police state? Why do they think it’s ok to have a massive spying infrastructure sniffing up all of our collective rear-ends? And an ever-expanding TSA etc.

    I understand for many of you, Social Conservatism trumps all, and it doesn’t bother me as long as you don’t go all Police State on me. RINOs you see are there to quietly and in a sneaky way allow big government to flourish while at the same time occasionally going on Fox News and acting incensed about it. Keeps the sheeple in line. You’ll see them buckle at the funding ObamaCare vote.

    So in my case,
    1. Paul/Cruz/Lee type I would vote for
    2. Any republican supporting the massive spy infrastructure no matter what position they hold on anything else, is done with me. Never again will I be tricked into a Bush/McCain/Romney.

    Anyway I decide to look her up, she is 62 is that right? I am 44 and found her very attractive. I realize it’s fox and there is makeup etc. but you have to have something to work with.

  • Shooter Who Ambushed LAPD Officers Caught on Video

    Thanks Lyin Libs.

    I asked on the thread last night but you might not have seen it, has the LAPD said anything about these two being on-site of the Hastings crash? Logically you would think this is their duty-time and shift, but I don’t know. I would not expect the LAPD to make this seem related at all, but I was wondering if any investigators have looked into it. Right now I am not in much of a mood to trust too many “official statements” from authority figures but I was hoping someone else had done some snooping.

    LL I must have missed that story. Were they definitely two of the first to arrive at the crash? Also have they arrested anyone for the ambush?

    Sorry I was agreeing with you and then started griping in general which made it look like it was directed at you.

    I don’t get it so much of it should be a model for someone who believes in limited government.....However, there are far fewer of those types around here these days.

    The whole Snowden/NSA/Amash vote is waking people up quickly. Better to plug your nose and be free than choose a so-called conservative who is on the take for the machine.

    The real simple question to ask the libertarian haters is this. Can you point me to Republican as openly disdainful of Libertarian thought as you folks who didn’t sell our butts out to the Police State?

    Some of you claim Cruz, fine but I doubt you’ll see him attack Libertarians like Christie.

    Possibly Sarah Palin though she’s been silent on the Amash vote. And yet, what does Sarah tell people? We need to welcome in the Ron Paul team. You folks are enablers, pure and simple. Enablers of Dubya, McCain, Boner and the rest of the tyranny wing.

    Before I support West I need to hear what he thinks about Snowden/NSA/ and the rest of the encroaching police state.

    I am fine with Cruz or Rand I would love for that to be the final two running in primaries.

    He needs more than his dad’s base.

    Many of us were waking up, I didn’t really jump on the Ron Paul thing until the primaries when he was the only one talking sense to me.

    Now I am not gloating. Guys with R’s next the their name can be very persuasive and even I voted for Romney. However it’s absolutely clear to me after the Snowden incident that the establishment GOP is not to be trusted. Never again can be be Sean Hannity - Democrats bad, Republicans good, hoo-rah.

    Bachmann really helped seal that deal the other night. Nobody is defending her actions.
