Myth: Microwaving Your Food Decreases Nutrients

If the choice is to eat something raw or microwave it, then you might lose some vitamins with the microwave. But versus other cooking methods, the microwave may be the best for preserving nutrients. A recent study showed that spinach, for example, retained 77 percent of folate (a B vitamin) when cooked on a stove yet kept all of its folate content when microwaved.

10 Ways to Reduce Vet Bills
Your pets are a part of the family. You want them to be happy and healthy. Yet paying too much at the vet can hurt your pet in the long run.

Grow Your Own Groceries

GARLIC: Get dozens of new garlic bulbs from just one.  Plant unpeeled cloves, pointy side up. Four to six inches apart and two inches deep.  Avoid overwatering and within a few months, new bulbs will appear ready for harvesting.


White Potatoes:  These are easy.  Simply cut a raw potato into chunks about two inches big that include one or more ‘eyes’ (small indents) and allow the pieces to air dry for two days.  Plant in loose soil about four inches deep, spacing them about 12 inches apart.  In about six weeks, vines will come up and after 8-10 weeks, the vine’s foliage will die back, a sign that you can dig them up.


Green Onions:  Get an unending supply of green onions by cutting off the bottom inch that contains boththe white bulb and roots, then plant in a sunny spot or small container or your garden, covering everything except the stem.  Water regularly and in a week or two, you’ll have new stalks.  Snip as many as you need while leaving the bulbs and roots.  More will grow back.

The Parting Thought- turning the tables on government


 Rules for Radicals – What Obama was taught…

The Alinsky method of “overwhelming the system.”


Turn the tables on Obama & his ‘orchestrated crisis’ methods of ruling the masses!


 Not just overwhelming the government system, something we could certainly succeed at.  But, I’m beginning to believe the ‘system’ has succeeded in overwhelming each American by overloading our ability to keep up with their rules, regulations, laws, etc.


Generally speaking, the Cloward-Piven Strategy calls for the deliberate flooding of

government systems in order to cause the government to implode under the weight of its

own bureaucracy.

Simple war tactics would support this theory. It’s all about throwing so much at the opposition that the opposition can’t function, whether it’s bullets, poison, economic threats, or attacks on the very foundations on which the nation stands. Americans can use the reverse strategy to overwhelm government agencies with requests for ‘assistance.’

We have read that during the American Revolution there were many who refused to take sides for various reasons. Today we are not afforded that luxury. This revolution is going to take a massive uprising if we are going to rein in the tyranny we are facing. By uprising, I mean taking back the government offices and taking them out of power…such as the unelected bureaucracies in DC and the elected officials at all levels who are allowing DC to micromanage every aspect of our lives. Take back the school system. Stop sending money to DC. By uprising, I mean turn down the grant money, turn down the regulations, turn down and turn back the power to Constitutional advocates.

Grassroots freedom organizations are being ignored. Christians are being ignored. Rights are burning up faster than dry kindling doused with gasoline. While everyone is watching these issues, one by one, Agenda 21 has taken over the entire Federal government using Alinsky rules. The Federal government, all three branches, is very busy destroying the Constitution daily. They are being paid to do it with our own money….and that of our children and grandchildren.

Anybody who’s ever read-up on Alinsky and the Cloward-Piven strategy can tell you that much of their technique for attacking the establishment involves ‘overwhelming’ public facilities, government institutions, and financial systems in order to bring them to a grinding halt. They then aim to get what they want through blackmail and/or a collapse of the target, inflicting wholesale changes upon the current status quo via civil disruption/force.  A recent example:

Is the Cloward-Piven Strategy at work? Well, let's take a walk down memory lane. The idea behind Budget Control Act of 2011 was sold to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and the American people under the premise that instituting automatic draconian "cuts" and tax increases should Congress fail to work out a deal to alleviate our financial woes would motivate Congress (and Barack Obama) to act.

What we were not told is that the Budget Control Act of 2011 was designed to fail. It was one of many Obama Regime manufactured crises. Yet, our nation forks out billions for Homeland Security, The TSA and other criminal elements of government, conveniently forgetting we’re not any safer and their budget busting spending is helping to fuel our downward spiral. It was a canard and Republicans in Congress fell for it hook, line and sinker.

Totalitarianism is America's new normal, with half of the people cheering as their freedoms disappear. Like Sgt. Schultz in the old TV series, Hogan’s Heroes they “know nothing.”

How’d Americans get that way? Can’t Americans think? No they can’t. They are unable to think critically about anything. They will go along with anything, they will do whatever they’re told, no matter how absurd. There is no cognition, no critical thinking, and they’ve never been exposed to any comprehensive philosophy to guide their lives.
