1  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Supreme Court likely to hear yet another Obamacare case on: July 25, 2014, 05:40:43 AM
Two federal court panels issued opposing rulings on whether tax credits for health insurance plans bought through the federally run marketplace are legal under the Affordable Care Act. Unless the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit overturns the three-judge panel's ruling and agrees with the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals' ruling, the cases are likely to go to the Supreme Court, experts say.

You believe that pornography is wrong, but you provide no sane, rational reason. "I believe it's wrong" isn't a reason. People "believed" marriage between whites and blacks was wrong too. People "believed" that some women were witches and burned them at the stake.

avxo, forget for a moment about it being "wrong" or "sin."  Agree or disagree with them, are you aware that many secular, educated professionals out there strongly believe that pornography is harmful?  

Heck, even Bill Maher on his show encouraged people to stop looking at it and start having more sex with their significant other more often instead...Maher being an example of secular person who believes this way, not an example of an educated professional.  Smiley

Of the four major types of fat that we eat, polyunsaturated fat is the strangest. But it’s the type that those of us who have diabetes most need to take time to understand.

Last week I reviewed a huge -- and hugely important -- new study that vindicated saturated fat. That study, “Saturated Fat is Back for People with Diabetes,” analyzed data from 72 cohort studies and randomized trials with more than 600,000 participants from 18 countries and concluded that total saturated fat was not connected to the risk of heart disease.

That study also included polyunsaturated fats. But while the findings were straightforward about saturated fat, those concerning polyunsaturated fat were nuanced.

Saturated and polyunsaturated fats are the two types that we have misunderstood the most in this country. We now seem to know about the other two types, monounsaturated and trans fats. We have general agreement that monounsaturated fats, which we find in many foods including olive oil and avocados, promote good health. And during the previous decade we have generally grown to understand that those artificially created trans fats made from partially hydrogenated vegetable oils are about the worst “food” we can put in our mouths.

Polyunsaturated fats are more complex. But we have begun to understand that the two main sub-types, omega-3 and omega-6, compete to get into the cells of our bodies and have quite different effects.

Omega-6 fats are the ones that our doctors have been telling us to eat. Soybean oil is the dominant oil, followed by corn oil, canola oil, and cottonseed oil. These four make up 96 percent of all the vegetable oil sold in this country, according to Evelyn Tribole in her book The Ultimate Omega-3 Diet (McGraw Hill, 2007, pp. 28-29). In addition to cooking with them, they are in most margarine, shortening, and salad dressings.

The new study suggests that the two main types of long-chain omega-3 fats are associated with a lower risk of heart disease. These fats are eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids, which almost nobody can pronounce, so we usually call them EPA and DHA. We get them almost exclusively from fatty fish like salmon and sardines.

This was no surprise. I’ve reported here on several earlier studies that extol the benefits to our hearts of eating fatty fish. What was a surprise was that one omega-6 fat, arachidonic acid, also seems to be associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. We get most of this fat from animal sources -- meat, eggs, dairy.

But the biggest surprise is that supplements of any of these polyunsaturated fats “do not statistically significantly reduce the risk for coronary outcomes.” In plain English it doesn't seem that taking fish oil or krill oil will do us any of the good that we thought we were getting from them. Only by eating fatty fish, meat, eggs, and dairy will polyunsaturated fat help us to stave off heart disease. This is so important because heart disease is the single leading cause of death and disability for people with diabetes and in fact for all humans beings.

These findings about taking fish oil or krill oil supplements are tentative. The researchers write that “the available evidence in generally limited.” More studies are needed to make a firm conclusion, and fortunately two large randomized trials to see if taking long-chain omega-3 supplements can help prevent heart disease are underway. As soon as these studies get published, you can count on me to report on them here.

Ecclesiastes 9:7

7 So go ahead. Eat your food with joy, and drink your wine with a happy heart, for God approves of this!


Good verse!   Grin

I'm opposed to the brand of Gnosticism that proclaims every degree of personal inclination to be inherently evil - no alcohol, even in moderation, sex for procreation only, etc. Folks like Tertullian and Origen injected that rubbish into Christianity and helped morph Christ into one of the stiff-upper-lipped Pharisees that He condemned. This sums it up well:

http://www.thefamilyinternational.org/dossier/books/book5/main.htm

Exactly! The Bible condemns Gluttony just as much as it condemns Drunkenness.  The Bible also says food and wine in moderation are very good for humans to enjoy.  So will those who say "no alcohol at all because it may lead to Drunkenness" also say "no food at all because it may lead to Gluttony"?  That's nonsense.

Way to hijack Man of Steel's thread!   Roll Eyes

Anyway, back to the subject:

Psalm 104:13-15  New International Version (NIV)

13 He waters the mountains from his upper chambers;
    the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work.
14 He makes grass grow for the cattle,
    and plants for people to cultivate—
    bringing forth food from the earth:
15 wine that gladdens human hearts,
    oil to make their faces shine,
    and bread that sustains their hearts.

Let's get this straight, no disrespect to current military or the enlisted within the last 10-15 years but this current military generation atleast 70-80% enlist bevause it's their only option after high school or to pay for college. It's not about patriotism for that percentage group. Nothing wrong with that, but the honor of serving takes a backseat to the benefits they will reap. I don't blame them one bit.

Comparing ww1 & ww2 vets to Middle East vets, IMO is apples and oranges. Different circumstances, totally different mindset.

Regardless, I am thankful for their service.

I agree too that people too often wear their "accomplishments" on their sleeves too much for everyone to give them attenrion over. Keep your fucking hat low & carry on you attention whores. I hate that shit

I don't know. 9/11 made a lot of Americans of all walks of life drop whatever they were doing at the time and volunteer to fight.

I thank teachers too.

But what I dislike is when they get drunk in bars and try to use it as leverage.  I'm playing the club and someone is 6 shots in, trying to call another dude "you're not a REAL man because you didn't serve like I did..."

A lot of teachers do that?    Huh

Horror Movies are not my thing, unless they are about vampires and werewolves.  However, the ones I enjoy are more of the Action/Adventure type like Blade, Underworld, etc.  I hear the Twilight films are more of a teenage girl romance/drama and I won't watch those.

I did enjoy Nightmare on Elm Street - Dream Warriors, but that was more of a Comedy/Action/Adventure as well.

I never enjoyed the Saw, Hostel, Halloween, Friday the 13th type movies.

Ok and in hell they share everything. Doesnt sound like hell to me.


Socialism is not about sharing anything.  It's about the government taking from the few working people to give it to the many non-working people.  Eventually the whole system collapses and the country turns into Hell.  Just take a vacation in Caracas, Venezuela and you'll see first hand.

Its not needed in heaven because they already share.



It's not needed in Heaven because there is an infinite supply of resources and nobody has to work to earn anything.  There is no need to share anything with anyone because there is no needy.

for those of you who have had surgery for an umbilical hernia, how big (noticeable) was your hernia?

i have a smallish looking hernia (my belly button protrudes a bit that i just discovered a few months ago, but have no pain) that i want to get surgically repaired, but my doctor doesn't think surgery is necessary, and (after my insistence that he refer me to a surgeon) the hernia surgeon basically laughed me out of his office after looking at my hernia for 5 seconds ...

am i just supposed to wait until my hernia worsens (gets bigger) and maybe starts to hurt before going under the knife?

The docs are waiting for your guts to spill out before they'll stuff them back in and hold them up with a mesh under your skin.    Lips sealed
