    Of course they should appeal.

    We can’t have “judges” incapable of discriminating right from wrong, good from bad, intelligence from stupidity — and in fact, will always prefer the stupid over the intelligent.

    Were these judges recently transferred out of Portland? They need to stay in their lane.

    Joe Biden is the towering intellect of all time.

    All those people at CNN and PBS will attest that he is the smartest person they know and have witnessed in their lifetimes. After they have made him president, they will make him the messiah so that humanity can henceforth worship at his altar.

    Masks matter a lot less than whether one is obese, diabetic, old and in poor health — against any virus, disease, pollution, injury, and calamity.

    That is what the bureaucratic/autocratic minds missed entirely — as is their wont.

    But the simple minded people working in the media and education can’t discriminate anything of significance anymore — and that is why they rightly need to be ignored.

  • New Medical Advice for Fat Kids Urges Drugs and Surgery Over Diet and Exercise

    There seems to be this disturbing trend in medicine these days of resorting to medical interventions (drugs and surgeries) over education and making the proper choices by individuals. That is previously known as self-reliance and self-sufficiency rather than the increasing dependency on others for caregiving and making those choices for us.

    While that may create more jobs for such codependencies, the individuals are undermined, and eventually incapable of making any decisions for themselves with any confidence and competency — leading to catastrophes of selecting the right diet, exercise, lifestyle, and sex partners.

    These bad choices eventually lead to the extinction of the species rather than its success as a society which is its ultimate purpose and reason for being. That’s why we have the present day examples of Portland and San Francisco — where people think the destruction of civilization signals their virtue and progressiveness.

    But there is a reason for modern plumbing and sanitation and not that it is okay because it creates infinitely more jobs rectifying these problems — or in the case of places like Honolulu, where they build stadiums, memorials and rail systems so that they can tear them down again and create more jobs in that senseless manner.

    The whole point of any society, is to create a healthier people and not just people with endless problems to solve. Maybe a few caregiving/social service professionals get rich that way — but at what cost to the greater whole!

  • Artificial Sweeteners Behind Spike in Sudden Deaths, Heart Attacks, ‘Experts’ Claim

    Looks like the American Heart Association is learning a few things from Fauci’s money grab for the entire funding of health associations. If he can hog all the money for allergies and infectious diseases, then as heart people, they can claim everything causes heart disease.

    These “health” associations are increasingly alarmed at the increasing usage of artificial sweeteners instead of the reliable regular sugars that cause all the major diseases, and need to get everybody back onto consuming more “healthy” regular sugars in unlimited quantities — as they have no relation to obesity, diabetes or any other health problems.

    Eat sugar and make your health care associations happy again. Sugar — the “natural” alternative.

    “Type 2 diabetes is not necessarily a permanent, lifelong disease. Diabetes remission is possible if patients lose weight by changing their diet and exercise habits,”

    Stated better, Type 2 diabetes is caused by diet and exercise habits — and people need to get that straight before running to the doctors who will invariably tell them that diet and exercise habits have nothing to do with their poor condition, and they have a permanent, lifelong disease they can do absolutely nothing about.

  • 25-Year-Old Former Football Player Jake Hescock Dies Suddenly of Cardiac Arrest While Jogging

    12/12/2022 12:20:07 PM PST · 77 of 89

    The obvious culprit is “cardio exercise.” The heart doesn’t need to work any harder. It always is the hardest working and most reliable muscle of the human body. It is the other skeletal muscles that frequently languish — and they play the most significant role in optimizing health, functioning, and continued well-being. There is even the legend of “John Henry,” who was a hard-working man who thought he could outwork a steam engine — and of course, his heart exploded with that effort.

    Similarly, a lot of the “World’s Strongest Man” competitors suffer from and even died of the great exertions required by their event. Additionally, it is a well-recognized fact that many of the top competitors in the Mr. Olympia and other bodybuilding contests experience heart as well as all other kinds of vital organ failures — thinking that it is enough just to push their bodies and organs to their limits for the body to adapt to those demands — rather than attaining critical failures — as with most things in real life.

    Brute force is not going to make one invulnerable — especially from self-inflicted abuses — whether from exercise or from illicit drugs, and in many cases, both. So these untimely ends are not entirely unexpected and unprecedented, but are well-proven, and despite that, many go into denial about these obvious realities.

    I’ve long pointed out that the heart has little effect on enhancing the circulation in the body — because it is the CONSTANT and not the VARIABLE — and in every experiment and experience, it is the variable that accounts for any significant difference and not the constant which is immutable. That is to say, that the heart is what it is, and nothing will change that, but the action of the rest of the muscles in the body, is what greatly impacts the effectiveness of circulation — particularly to those axes (joints) actually moved.

    Otherwise, the heart has no idea where to prioritize that flow of blood and nutrients — but more importantly, it is those contractions of the skeletal muscles — that account for the propulsion of the blood and other fluids (inflammation, edema, lymphedema, lipedema, etc) back towards the heart — while creating space for the new to enter by virtue of the always working heart.

    But for grossly misinformed people to think that all one is trying to accomplish in exercise is to work the heart infinitely harder, is the reason they are more likely to cause the heart to fail completely, rather than achieve the much more intelligent objective of using the entire musculature of the body to optimize the flow — and not just require the heart to work infinitely harder as the prescription for a longer and healthy life.

    That is particularly the problem of the dementias — that the heart and lungs continue to function for many years after the circulation to the brain, hands and feet have ceased to remain vital functioning parts. It is a seriously flawed understanding that does not bode well for prolonged lives in continued good health and functioning — and therefore, all is lost.

  • Her grandma's struggle with dementia led to this Singaporean scientist developing a test to detect early stages

    You sound like an independent researcher who does their homework.

    About 100 years ago, there was a doctor touting an exercise he called “The Giant Swing,” which was simply standing and rotating the head 360 degrees — and letting the rest of the body follow through. It was a small booklet of about 20 chapters in which he claimed that The Giant Swing was the cure for various and sundry ailments. He didn’t do much theorizing but simply advised that was the cure.

    Unlike a lot of lifelong exercisers, I did not spend all my time around jocks, but came into contact with many seniors, disabled, and even terminal people — to whom even in their seemingly hopeless conditions, I felt there was something they could do to improve their condition and health — especially when the medical professionals had abandoned all hope for them.

    Thus they were avid learners — realizing they had everything to gain and very little to lose — by trying anything that made sense to them. But when one is given no hope otherwise, that is a very powerful motivator — if they recognize that urgency and are determined to do whatever necessary and possible.

    The notable failings of the human body, are foot strength (balance), grip strength, and increasingly, cognitive function — caused by a sedentary lifestyle that no longer requires head, hand and foot movement — which is what the human body is uniquely designed to do. And so those areas atrophy — and is particularly disturbing at the neck — and most people think there is nothing they can do about it!

    But the movement performers — such as dancers, especially, cultivate that distinctive development of neck muscles as a requirement for spatial awareness. And that is what turning the head allows one to do — remain aware of what is going on — in a way that just looking at a television screen all day does not. A full range movement requires the muscle to move from fullest contraction to fullest relaxation, which is like the action of the heart in pumping blood out to the extremities. But to complete that circuit, the muscles at the extremity have to pump the blood back towards the heart — with their own movements. When those are nonexistent as they even are in prolonged running, walking and treadmilling, the resulting development is to enlarge the heart which weakens it, while the rest of the musculature atrophies.

    That is what we know of the effect of exercise. Those muscles specifically worked, continue to function well, and can be optimized — while those muscles not specifically exercised, atrophy. The effect of pumping the fluids out of the tissues is that it creates the space for the new life and health giving fluids (nutrients) to enter — just as Dr Jason Fung, the expositor of Intermittent Fasting points out. You first have to get rid of the old, before you can build the new — and better. That is the greatest deterrent to deterioration — by actually producing health.

    Some have said Alzheimer’s is a form of diabetes — and even call it Type 3 diabetes.

    What they seem to have in common is the destruction of the blood flow particularly to the extremities — of the head, hands and feet — which in its terminal stages, results in the amputation of the feet and hands — but they would never think to behead anyone to cure it. Instead, the body just separates from the body in this characteristic manner.

    When I first encountered large groups of people verging on this condition, I was particularly struck by their lack of movement — particularly at the head, hands and feet — which either seemed to be atrophied, or inflamed (swollen) with that characteristic look of bloated tissue characteristic of diabetics and the obese.

    There seems to be this obvious lack of circulation because of this lack of movement — effected by muscle contractions. That is the chief benefit of exercise — in that it causes skeletal muscular contractions that push fluids back towards the heart — because the venous flow is not affected by the action of the heart, but has to be generated by skeletal muscle contractions — as in a normal healthy functioning human being.

    The cessation of all such movements because technology obviates that need — causes this buildup of inflammation and toxins in the tissues that cannot be effected in any other way. That is the design and evolution of the human being — to move those critical parts (organs) of the body, and not to, virtually ensures its destruction. That was what was obvious to me — and in everybody designated to have those problems and tendencies.

    And it doesn’t matter how hard they get their hearts pumping, or their biceps peaked, and their six-packs intact, because that is not the critical failure of that body. It is that the circulation from those critical faculties, are not maintained and enhanced as a top priority — even while diverting those precious and limited resources to the biceps, abdominals, and worst of all, the misguided notion that the heart has to work even harder than it is — as the only muscle still functioning in such people — and that is the problem.

  • Covid becomes plague of elderly, reviving debate over ‘acceptable loss’

    Sicker people are much more likely to die, be disabled, or be dysfunctional. That’s not news but is verified by all of life.

    It’s not like the Washington Post writer suggests — that we need to go and see that an equal number of young and healthy people die for there to be equal rights and opportunity in the US and the world.

    If I don’t want to die, it is primarily my responsibility to ensure that — and not everybody else’s responsibility to ensure that I never get sick (or injured) or in this case, attain one more comorbidity and complication that threatens my existence. No, it is not my right to wear headphones into the New York City subway at 4am thinking nothing “should” happen to me. It is primarily my responsibility to do everything I can to reduce my risks as much as humanly possible — beginning with achieving my best health. That is what life is all about — for every species that has ever existed. Those are simply the facts of life.

    However, I realize some people only get paid to write such articles if they distort every other fact of life to make their point — exclusively hired by the mainstream media while censoring and suppressing all intelligent and insightful perspectives. That is the great problem of these times.
