Pass the butter please

Pass The Butter … Please. This is interesting . .. .

Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.

It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow colouring and sold it to people to use in place of butter.
How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavourings….

DO YOU KNOW.. The difference between margarine and butter?

Read on to the end…gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories.

Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams; compared to 5 grams for margarine..

Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods.

Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few and only because they are added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavours of other foods.

Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.

And now, for Margarine..

Very High in Trans fatty acids.

Triples risk of coronary heart disease …

Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five times..

Lowers quality of breast milk

Decreases Immune Response.

Decreases Insulin Response..

And here’s the most disturbing fact… HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING!

Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC… and shares 27 ingredients with PAINT

These facts alone were enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated!!!!
(this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

Open a tub of margarine and leave it open in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will notice a couple of things:

* no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something)

* it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value ; NOTHING will grow on it.

Even those teeny weeny micro-organisms will not a find a home to grow.
Why? Because it is nearly plastic .
Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?

Share This With Your Friends…..(If you want to butter them up’)!

Chinese Proverb:

When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others.

Of course if you want to believe that a cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and drink his blood and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master so he can remove an evil force from your soul that he put in there in the first place because a woman that he created from a rib of a man was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree . . . go right ahead, I don’t mind.

Are We Americans Too Arrogant

Posted by admin     Category: Common Sense

The National news is filled with articles about President Obama being out manipulated by Vladimir Putin. Now, people that were opposed to getting involved in Syria are having second thoughts because of an Op Ed piece that Putin sent to the New York times.

Really? Are we as a people really that shallow?

Here is exactly what Putin wrote:

“My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”

People, if we are insulted by this then our skin is way too thin. Putin did not verbally attack America. He basically said what any good parent tells their child, any good coach tells their players, any good boss or co-worker tells their employee/co-worker, and what any good friend tells their friend when that person gets too “full of themselves”…that you should not see yourself as “all that” and think that you are better than anyone else.

If we see ourselves as exceptional, as better than other people, then we are basically being arrogant. The definition of arrogant is: “having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance or abilities.”

Even the bible talks about how we should not be arrogant…scroll to the bottom of this article for some quotes from the Bible on this subject.

Now, back to my original point. It was arrogance on Obama’s part to want to strike Syria to start with. Think about it, this man said that a red line for us would be if Syria used chemical weapons. He also used the term, “it would change my calculus” in that same q/a regarding Syria’s use of chemical weapons. During Obama’s first term Bill Clinton once described Obama as an “amateur.” Truer words have never been spoken. Obama painted himself into a corner by going “off script/teleprompter” talking about the red line and changing his calculus. Then, when pushed on whether this issue with Syria would tarnish his credibility Obama had the audacity to say that his credibility was not on the line. He said that the international community, Congress, and the American People’s credibility are on the line but that his credibility was fine. So basically, Obama pointed fingers at everyone else for his mistake. Talk about the epitome of selfishness, arrogance, and stupidity. Obama has it all…in spades.

Now we have both Russia and Syria saying that the United States is helping terrorists by supplying the rebels. You know what, let’s just admit it they are right.

My point in all of this is so what, Obama was out manipulated by Putin. Sometimes we have a dud as a President and Obama is certainly that. He has held less cabinet meetings, he takes more vacations, he plays more golf, than just about any other President that we have had. He either does not take the job too seriously, or he just doesn’t know what to do. Either way, as a President of the United States Obama is an amateur. But do we really want to deploy our military to get involved in Syria, where our enemies are killing our enemies and there is no “end game” in sight for us just because our President is an amateur and we got our feathers ruffled because the Russian President out manipulated him in the international media?

I certainly hope that we, as Americans, are not that arrogant.

Read what the Bible says about arrogance and think long and hard on this, my fellow citizens. If you agree with me that the United States needs to not get involved in Syria (I think that we should not even be supplying their terrorist rebels either) then call your representatives in the Senate and Congress and tell them so. Let’s not let our Amateur President start another war that we have no business being in.
