give it back...,

whitehouse |  Your Majesties, Your Royal Highnesses, distinguished members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, citizens of America, and citizens of the world:

I receive this honor with deep gratitude and great humility.  It is an award that speaks to our highest aspirations -- that for all the cruelty and hardship of our world, we are not mere prisoners of fate.  Our actions matter, and can bend history in the direction of justice.

And yet I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the considerable controversy that your generous decision has generated.  (Laughter.)  In part, this is because I am at the beginning, and not the end, of my labors on the world stage.  Compared to some of the giants of history who've received this prize -- Schweitzer and King; Marshall and Mandela -- my accomplishments are slight.  And then there are the men and women around the world who have been jailed and beaten in the pursuit of justice; those who toil in humanitarian organizations to relieve suffering; the unrecognized millions whose quiet acts of courage and compassion inspire even the most hardened cynics.  I cannot argue with those who find these men and women -- some known, some obscure to all but those they help -- to be far more deserving of this honor than I.

Hello Ukraine, welcome to the free-market economy.

[The IMF policy of promoting further currency decline, in other words, will mean even more domestic inflation, primarily impacting households, and therefore less spending by households on other goods and services. But that’s not the half of it. IMF measures will not only result in rising import inflation, but will produce even greater inflationary pressures as a result of IMF-dictated terms related to Ukraine’s natural gas. Estimates are that natural gas prices will increase by 79% as a result of the IMF-dictated 50% increase in gas prices. Simultaneously, as gas prices escalate gas subsidies to households will be totally phased out over the next two years, according to the IMF deal.

To summarize, the IMF deal of March 27 calls for paying western banks and lenders $6.5 billion over the next two years in debt servicing payments. It additionally requires the reduction of household gas subsidies by another $13 billion plus the total phase out of gas subsidies. And it indirectly calls for the Ukrainian government to cut spending by at least $8 billion (2.5% of GDP) over the next two years—in the form of cuts in government jobs, wage cuts for government workers, and pension payment reductions of a likely 50% for retirees in general.

By absorbing the Ukrainian economy into the Eurozone, the latter is in effect taking under its economic wing yet another ‘Greece’ and ‘Spain’. And as in the case of those latter economies, those who will pay will not be the bankers and multinational businessmen, but the Ukrainian people.]

Bowing low in your general direction Asberry-San. A hard head makes for a soft behind.

Just like with the rest of these muh-hukkin deuteros, it took a comparative crisis for me to get up off the dime. So, we're as canola-free as possible, me not knowing what a "canola" was, I said, nah to that, but I'm curious about these Omegas and want to know - absent google - what you concentrate on to maximize the good and eliminate the bad.

These past two weekends, I've made large tureens of thai seafood stew, and used coconut cream, kaffir lime leaves, and lemongrass and they're so large, they've each made for three meals. I haven't felt better in years, physically, cognitively, etc..., been going to the gym and getting straight yoked - and - been much more productive than usual.

I'm a believer based on these results. The leaky-gut makes sense given there has to be some or another mechanism to account for the colonization that seems to take place in other soft tissues. Now this has wondering how the leaky-gut trajectory maps to the chi meridians, and whether or not theres some overlap, in addition, whether or not there's literally some or another system connecting the larger fascial organ systems and performing functions which here-to-date have only been documented in traditional chinese and ayurvedic medicine?

Lol, I'm glad you heard your friend.

The "omegas" I learned about from the book Inflammation Nation by Floyd Chilton. He also discusses how fat cells are also metabolically and immunologically active by the fact that the bigger and more fat cells you have, the more inflammatory compounds they make. Low glycemic index foods (the essence of low carb diets) increase the body's ability to regulate the immune response. Maximize your omega 3 through eating oily fish, which if you want to go straight to the source of those oils -- algae, which doesn't taste too terribly good. I've been enjoying the golden-yolked beauties that my happy, free-range, bug-eating chickens have been laying which theoretically are high in omega 3 fatty acids. I don't know if the saying is true, but I think happy chickens make for healthy food. If that's the case, avoid the terribly treated, wheat-soybean-corn fed CAFO animal meat. Chia seeds are also quite good - taste- and health-wise

Canola oil is extracted from the seed of the unfortunately named rapeseed plant which is a member of the very healthy mustard (brassica) family. The reason it is used is because it's easy to grow because it's a weed with lots of oil in the seeds.

Another interesting point about gluten is that it shortens the villi in the intestines which also reduces the uptake of calcium and other nutrients -- the essence of celiac's disease.

Which leads to... calcium is critical for the body to be able absorb dietary vitamin D. I'd recommend all northern latitude dwellers to supplement both calcium and vitamin D and especially those protected by melanin and their skin produces less.

I'm not sure that traditional chinese and ayurvedic medicine has it completely right, but modern medicine seems to have gotten more wrong than right. Maybe those systems/symbologies are related (and hidden) much like the traditions surrounding the alkahest?

Dale Asberry said...

Forgot to mention... read the ingredient labels closely. Sometimes canola oil is classified as vegetable oil. It is also the largest ingredient in most mayonnaise. Also, almost all fried foods are fried in canola oil.

If this dude had an ounce of human decency he never would have accepted the award. If the Nobel organization was serious about peace, they would correct their colossal mistake by demanding that Obama return the prize.

Allopathic medicine gets physiology that can be seen and traced, and only grudgingly and glacially anything more subtle than that. The traditional asian systems, rooted in yoga and meditation, get at parasympathetic physiology - far less amenable to the anatomists gaze and which can mostly only be felt, and then, only when one is methodically working at/toward feeling them.

Uglyblackjohn said...

Dale.. Do you suppose that smoking has the same effect on the villi of ones tongue?

Dale Asberry said...

It would make sense that it has the same effect on the papillae of the tongue and smell receptors in the nose as ex-smokers recover their sense of taste and smell.

Uglyblackjohn said...

And that smelling and chewing ones food are the first steps in proper digestion... If these steps are skipped the absorption and metabolization of the required nutrients could also be affected..

My Brother CNu -

Please allow me to explain myself, yet again.

On the matter of Barack Obama in the seat of power of the "US President" - standing on stage..............

* I choose to LOOK OUTWARD, beyond the stage
* INTO THE AUDIENCE at the various factions that are looking forward on the stage - particularly the Americanized Blacks
* I look upward into the balcony at the "Audio/Visual Equipment" that provides the "theatrics" for the sanctuary - including holographic and echo effects.

* In this audience I observe the number of people who SEE the stage players and hear the "Church Organ" and decide to WALK OUT OF THE CHURCH - as proof that "This Shall Not Be Done In MY (Black) Name"

NOW - let us consider the "TAKE BACK OBAMA'S NOBEL PEACE PRIZE" proposal.

TELL ME - How many of the same Black parents who refuse to attend the PTA meetings would agree to lay their bodies on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC so that the NOBEL COMMITTEE could successfully get to the White House front door to knock and request the award back AND block every "FedEx / UPS and USPS" parcel truck to enter the White House Grounds as they PROTECT "Their President" who THEY ARE SO THANKFUL for doing so much to make them feel PROUD?
