Is Biden Really That Reassuring?

By:

Mr.PC.

So China is exerting its military prowess over some disputed islands in the region. Japan is nervous and rightly so. The answer? Send good old shotgun Joe to reassure our friends. Seriously, would you feel confident to see Biden on the doorstep to let you know everything is going to be alright?

Eat, Drink and Die

By:

Mr.PC.

We’ve all seen the commercials, read the articles, and have heard the news reports about how we are going to die early, if we eat this or talk like a harmonica, if we smoke that. Not to mention the news reports about too much red meat, too much sugar, or being overweight. If you take a little time to really digest all of this information, or at least a portion of it, the data is overwhelming. Before we go any further with this thought process, as a disclaimer, I’d like to state that I am in no way a lefty, hippie, or granola crunching type of guy. In fact, quite the opposite, I’m a knuckle dragging, conservative, Jesus loving, and a capitalist pig. However, many in our society are starting to conclude that the corporate machine that feeds us could care less about your philosophy or whether or not you are healthy. They care about the money and nothing else. That should frighten you.

I do get a chuckle out of the pharmaceutical companies hawking their drugs. It seems that in order to breathe easier, it is accompanied by anal leakage and nausea. These drugs are powerful and most likely do the trick, but at what cost? The sad fact is that more than half of America is on some sort of a prescription drug. And in many cases, these drugs are trying to fix some sort of imbalance that may cause depression or drastic mood swings. Granted, Western medicine is one of the most incredible sciences the world has ever known, but when it comes to the drugs we are prescribed, in my opinion, it is like putting a Band-Aid on a gushing wound. Our society demands it. We are too busy with our technology, too busy with our TV shows, pop culture, and just too damn busy with our busyness to consider the idea that “we” are collectively distressing our bodies. Think about it, we are so busy trying to survive, that we are killing ourselves doing it.

We all know that our diet sucks in this country. From Jared to Michelle Obama, we’ve been told and the secret is out. We are eating very unhealthy on too regular of a basis. Fast food, processed food, and now many of us are starting to learn about GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) that are laden in our food products. Once you start down this rabbit hole, it never ends. You’ll end up with a lot more than a stoned caterpillar and a card deck full of hearts. Try reading the ingredients list on just about anything we buy in a can, bag, or container – food coloring, preservatives, sodium, chemicals, chemicals, and chemicals. Is it any wonder that we end up at the doctor’s office with so many pharmaceutical seeking ailments? Most who know me have always considered me a moron and with good reason. But even a guy like me is starting to look around at the many cancers, the multitude of children with autism, the depression, the high blood pressure, the diabetes, and so many other medical problems that one can’t list them all…and wonder…”Why”? The more I start to realize that the old adage, “You are what you eat,” is one of the most profound truisms in history.  I have realized, even more, that “we” can do something about the diet debacle in this country.  I realize that some people simply get sick. By the same token, I understand that some people could care less about what they feed their bodies, but many of us were simply never told. Many of us love the idea of treating ourselves well. We want nutritious fruits and vegetables. We want tasty natural vitamins. We want to eat things that will help to prevent heart disease. It is so easy. Mankind was never meant to eat chemicals the way we eat them in our food. And then we try to fix our bodies by eating more chemicals in the way of a pill. You can choose to eat healthier. You can choose to grow your own herbs and veggies. Even if it is just a small garden, you can choose to do it. You can choose to shop locally for your food. Every small town to large city has local farmers. Take the time to find out for yourself. You owe it to your body. “We” owe it to the next generation. Our society has to choose a new “normal.” Right now, it is completely normal for our children to walk into a convenience store and desire cans of food, bags of marshmallows, and liters of soda. They think like that, because we’ve taught them.

About a year ago, I and a few friends started to grow our own food. We built an aquaponics system. For those of you not familiar with aquaponics, it is completely worth learning more. In short, it is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics. Find out more about aquaponics at EasyPonix. The point is this, once we started growing our own vegetables it became an addiction. Now, I’m planting fruit trees and vegetables in the ground. I’m going to build another aquaponics garden that is 3 times the size of the current garden.  Me and my buddies have actually developed an entire grow bed system and kit that is unique to aquaponics. Within a few years, between the multitude of fruit trees and all the gardening going on, I’ll be able to walk outside and eat fresh, nutritious, and most importantly – healthy food all day long. Throw in a gaggle of chickens and we have a mini supermarket in motion.

I’ve done a lot of things in life. Traveled the world to some very exotic places, created films and images to a profitable conclusion, boated up and down gorgeous rivers and springs, swam with dolphins and manatees, cooked some of the greatest meals in the history of the world, with the best friends possible, have run several businesses, with all kinds of struggles and rewards, massive fundraising and so much more. But the thing that I’m most proud of, apart from my incredible daughter, is this garden and this way of thinking. It has started me down a path that was meant to be. The culmination of all my life is summed up in the excellence of being self-sufficient and creating a local sustainable way of life for me and my family. Being a conservative, I see this as personal responsibility, and it is a great lesson that I can pass on to my daughter and step-son. They will have a head start and they will understand that going to the convenience store to get a candy bar can’t even compare to walking out of the door and sinking their teeth into a freshly picked grape, guava, apple, sweet pepper, or, in my case, a habanero!

Make sure to watch Mr. PC and his friends cook gourmet meals with fresh food on The Common Chef.

The Morning After

By:

Mr.PC.

The debate last night was an interesting display of aggressive behavior by both candidates and a moderator who was clearly in the bag for Obama. Believe it or not, it was all I could do to sit and watch Obama start his political speak. He really does seem to pretend that he hasn’t been the President for the last 4 years. As if he really has some political goals that he “plans” to achieve “if” elected.

The things that drive me to drink while watching political pundits and campaigns are the outright disregard for the facts along with the talking points. On both sides it gets tedious to listen to particular rhetoric about topics that seemingly could be so easily dealt with if they both parties would stop the machine for a minute and just talk to us like we are intelligent adults who want to make an informed decision. For example, Romney gets caught up in things like Benghazi and that “Gotcha” moment. While I understand that, for some reason, the Obama administration did not want to admit that there was a terrorist attack in Libya and his administration was either shielding the truth or severely incompetent…most Americans understand it already. Perhaps it is because the media wants to coddle Obama for the most part. Maybe the Republicans feel that this is a blatant lie and they want to pound Obama on it and feel that it may one of the few issues in which they can clearly point to Obama’s true nature?  In any case, enough already! We want some meat not mouse milk. But Obama is the worse culprit of these ridiculous sound bite talking points. Who is he talking to…idiots? He keeps repeating over and over ad nauseum about how Romney just wants to help the ‘wealthy’ and that somehow ‘that’s what got us into this mess in the first place’. What kind of a pathetic meme is that? That’s right. The reason that America is in a great recession is because the Bush administration only cared about the wealthy and they only wanted to help the 1%. And for some reason Romney can’t combat this nonsense because his “political strategy” is to appear to have nothing in common with President Bush. This is just unbelievable. Why can’t Romney confront Obama about this class warfare with some truth, why won’t he? What about the housing bubble? The reason that America is in a recession is because of the housing bubble. Which arguable sits at the doorstep of decades worth of liberal policies. Also, Americans prospered significantly during the Bush years…apart from the housing bubble crash. What about the fact that Bush inherited a recession with the tech bubble crash along with 9/11 and beat it within a year by cutting taxes…for everyone? I submit if Bush had followed Obama’s strategy that we would have ended up in a great recession at that point and time in history. What about the fact that Reagan cut taxes significantly, on everyone, and broke the recession he inherited from Carter? What about the fact that Obama could take 100% of the money of, what he deems ‘wealthy people’, it doesn’t solve anything and history proves both scenarios. When has there ever been a point in the history of the world in which redistribution of wealth has ever grown an economy, let alone America? On top of that, why does Obama feel that he has the right to take someone else’s money?

In the end, the debate really boiled down to who got “a message” out there that can stick on the wall. Romney is strictly focusing on small business people. It’s not a bad strategy. I’d love to meet the small business owner who is saying, ‘Thank goodness that Obama is the President’. Romney did get the point across that he knows how to generate income apart from stealing from others. He did get the point across that he can manage money and a budget whereas Obama has proven quite the opposite. Romney also got the point across that Obama has a record…he really didn’t have much of a political record before he became President but he does now. Obama focused on class warfare. He demagogued redistribution of wealth and I do not think it worked. It harkens to the first campaign, “Hope and Change”. To this day I don’t think there is a definitive answer to what that phrase means. What are we hoping for and what are we changing? How far back does Obama want to go with his change? What exactly are we hoping for? $4 dollar a gallon gas, higher energy and food costs, lower wages, unemployment, food stamps, race bating, divisive language, departure from a space program, departure from a dominant military force, departure from oil on the dollar standard, departure from a triple A credit rating, class warfare, handing world power to China, nuclear Iran and an arms race in the Middle East with Russia sitting at the helm of enemies of America…you name it and Obama has changed it.

It would be a shame for America to continue the current path and though Romney may not come off as an inspiring figure he does strike me as someone who understand what a trillion dollars looks like and someone who knows how to manage it.

Hillary, True Leadership In The Obama Administration

By:

Mr.PC.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…though I can’t believe I have to say it at all. America would be better off if Hillary Clinton would have won the primary against Obama. Obama has really never shown true leadership either before he was elected and certainly not after. He has managed to divide America even further and plunge us into, what I believe, is unrecoverable debt. Hillary didn’t want anything to do with the DNC convention. She’s been traveling around the world at some sort of a record pace and it doesn’t appear as if she is golfing, partying or even taking advantage of the tax payer. She’s quietly being the Secretary of State. In fact, she’s been so quiet that the media has largely neglected her efforts these past years. So then there was Benghazi. A lot of ink has been spilt over this story and with good reason. Four Americans have perished and seemingly, at some level, our government knew that the situation was volatile. Finally, rather than continue to play politics and hoping the story would simply fall by the way-side – Hillary has said, ‘the buck stops here’. Not only that, she let the President off of the hook by stating that he would have no way of knowing what was taking place in her sphere of influence. Even though the spin from the White House has proven to be a lie, not just a misstatement, or a mistake but an out and out lie; it was Hillary who finally took the blame.

She may have a point. That there is no reason that Obama would know all the ins and outs of her job. He has been busy playing golf, missing intelligence briefings and running for President of popular world opinion. But perhaps Biden could find the time. What does he really do anyway? Isn’t he supposed to be some sort of a foreign policy wonk? Hardly. Biden is about as pointless to the administration and America as a leaf miner fly is to a lush garden. Perhaps that is too gracious of a statement in regard to Biden. Maybe it’s more like he is the court jester in the palace of the King? I’ve always tried to figure out why Obama would have chosen a plagiarist for a running mate. It must be for the comic relief. At any rate, how is it that the entire administration would not be paying attention to what might happen in the Middle East on the anniversary of September 11? I believe that Obama doesn’t want to admit that there are still terrorists who would like to slit the throats of just about every American and hack off the heads of women’s rights activists. I believe that Obama wants America to believe that there really never was a large threat in the Middle East. It doesn’t fit into his narrative. But in the end, the truth is that terrorists again killed Americans. No matter how much Obama wants to bury his head in the sand it is the truth. A truth that has existed for several decades, if not longer. A truth that will not go away.

Back to Hillary. Does Obama have some sort of card he hasn’t played when it comes to the Clinton’s? Maybe Obama has photographic evidence of Bill’s apparently regular forays into debauchery. Does Obama have a deep hidden secret on Hillary? He has Bill running around touting his non-accomplishments, his policies – when all of us who have been paying attention realize that the Clinton’s are not fans of the President. Now Hillary falls on her sword for the White Hosue. She takes the entire blame for Benghazi. Could it simply be that she is and has been becoming a true leader?
