Michelle Obama, Hypnatremia, Adult Diapers,
and Other Hydration-Related Issues

American Thinker, by Jeannie DeAngelis

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/15/2013 9:24:56 AM

For America´s aging population, even the mention of water makes a large number of Baby Boomers sprint toward the nearest restroom. Now to compound the problem, we have first lady Michelle Obama hawking increased water consumption.(snip) It used to be when a person felt hungry, they ate, and when their God-given internal water gauge indicated they were running low, they drank. That´s the old way. Now we have Michelle Obama spending her time "nudging" us away from the soda aisle toward the water fountain.

Perhaps her next "Let´s Move" campaign will be for Depends - launched from Cockysville, MD.

If one drnks a great deal of water, one can suffer from hyponatremia- low sodium in the blood stream. If one drinks very little water, one suffers from hypernatremia.

I´ll give Moochelle a pass on this because drinking more water is important, especially in the elderly. It prevents clots,strokes and bladder infections. They need to be reminded. The younger generation still have built in reminders that they better drink up.

The problem with Moochelle is that no one thinks she really gives a darn one way or the other. These food and drnk issues are just manufactured to keep her out there.

She comes across as someone who is profoundly, mentally "challenged" - her circus handlers are just trying to give her something to do & make her feel important. I know someone just like this who is a busybody & who desperately wants to seem wise. She also dispenses such nonsensical advice about the patently obvious.

Water is very important to seniors health, most of us tend not to drink it and get dehydrated. I drink a 8oz glass upon arising, and several during the day, at night before laying down I drink another 6-8 oz`s. I read an article a few years back (sorry I forget the name of the article)that it keeps you from having a heart attack or stroke, also, I boil water from the tap because I do not trust bottled water.
I would rather get up a couple of times a night than risk having a heart attack or stroke.

Now that Ann Landers and Dear Abby are dead maybe the moose could just have her own advice column. We could all send her very serious but bogus letters asking for her expert advice. Maybe it would keep her busy and out of our real lives. What a stupid busybody she is. Does she really think we listen to her? She has noting to fear. With the way her husband is ruining the economy we will only be able to afford to eat kibble and drink water by the time he is done destroying us. Isn´t that what they want?

Proper hydration is important... and this does seem like busywork for a FLOTUS to seize on as her next "issue" or "platform" (as if she were competing to be Miss USA... or in this case, Mrs. America).

I had to show my dad how to "pre-hydrate" before going to his "Bounce Back" treadmill
session (unfortunately they tried to make him drink water while walking on a treadmill and then would tell him "tell us if you feel anything in your chest area" which was not a
good plan).

I got that straightened out, based on years of my hydrating after realizing I was often
dehydrated. Plus I worked for years for a nutrition M.D. and was up on these issues.

"Bounce Back" also had a dumb nutritionist who gave a guest lecture and
announced that "seafood isn´t good for you" and then "I have to go now."

What a moron that guy was... and just got a Ph.D. allegedly at U. Florida, Gainesville.
His complaint was that "seafood contains cholesterol" ... the seniors were all left
in confusion, saying, "But wait, we´ve been told to eat more seafood..."

This numbskull trainer turned to my dad and said, "Isn´t he good?" And I said, "No, he´s
wrong, and he´s a moron who confused all these seniors with his nutty advice."
She was dumbfounded, but I straightened my dad out on that one.

My dad also had a stupid doctor who told him that "HDL is the bad cholesterol" and I had
to straighten that one out ("Get a new doctor") and he had a doctor who botched
a treadmill stress test, too.
("Get a new doctor.")

I eventually had to fire a cardiology group, too, in the hospital.
We got someone much better.

Many physicians are negligent, incompetent, dishonest, and dangerous.
Moochelle the Cookie Wookiee...
"Don´t Let Them Eat Cake!!"...
should fit right in with that crowd... s/o

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga
American Thinker, by Mathew Vadum    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/18/2014 9:08:36 AM     Post Reply
As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´

Posted By: magnante- 4/17/2014 10:02:46 AM     Post Reply
For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me.

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism. For the first time in U.S. history, are Americans required to submit to their president's agenda or suffer the mainstream media and Democratic party branding an R on

Justice Stevens thinks he knows

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
