A GREAT article in the Times that is adapted from the upcoming book will be published by Random House this month: “Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us” by Michael Moss. A couple of years ago a girlfriend of mine at the time gave me another great book that got me thinking along those lines too called “The End of Overeating: Taking Control of the Insatiable American Appetite” by David A. Kessler who was at one time back in the 1990’s the Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Which took me to this great video presentation:

Quoth El Rushbo:
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time in my life, I am ashamed of my country. To be watching all of this, to be treated, to have my intelligence, all of us, to have our common sense and intelligence insulted the way it’s being, it just makes me ashamed. Seriously man, here we get worked up over $44 billion dollars, that’s the total amount of money that will not be spent that was scheduled to be spent this year. And in truth, we’re going to spend more this year than we spent last year.
The thrice-divorced, draft-dodging, drug-addicted college dropout was born in 1951. So he’s lived through the Kennedy assassination, the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing along with the rest of the violent death of Jim Crow, the assassinations of MLK and Robert Kennedy, the Vietnam War, My Lai, Cambodia, Watergate, Iran-Contra, Columbine, the Iraq War, Abu Ghraib, Katrina, Virginia Tech and Sandy Hook — just to name a few — and none of that made him ashamed of his country.
But a manufactured budget crisis, engineered by the GOP — now that’s a national disgrace.
What a loon.
