Boo-McHaa-McHoo, Kids NOT being McBranded

McDonalds is upset. Their Corporate “News” McPartners are upset. San Francisco voters ratified a law requiring that toys only be placed in McHappy McMeals that don’t exceed the recommended daily allowance of calories.
Which, the vast majority of their food not only exceeds but doubles the recommended daily caloric, fat, sugars, and salt intake. Essentially the “Happy Meal” is a branding gimmick, sure, get the Stupid People to actually PAY for extra advertising. Mattel and Hasbro, makers of Violence Toys which promote militaristic stereotypes for boys and misogynistic stereotypes for girls, pay to have their “toys” advertising the full size and more expensive toys inserted into the kids’ meals. Not just teaching the kids that overeating on the one hand and toys that promote sedentary activities instead of the running, walking, action-packed ACTIVE activities that human children are naturally suited to doing during play time.
The McNews corporate whores here in town said the KIDS would be unhappy because of that, but really, did anybody force the PARENTS to not reward their kids with toys for eating a REAL meal with REAL food instead of the Fat-Food garbage?

I mean, really, does the Fat Food Industry really really really need to bribe the kids to eat their Deep Fried Grease? Do the parents need to bribe their kids to poison themselves? Does a supposedly impartial journalist like News 11 (Colorado Springs local) anchors did, have to be so blatantly partial and commercial in their promotion of Death to American kids?

Parents, if you want to reward your kids for bad behavior, like dietary habits that are nothing short of Suicidal, you should really be ashamed. But I get this sickening feeling that the guilty parties aren’t ashamed.

I know that some will actually pop off with Religious condemnations of San Francisco doing such a bad ol’ meanie thing as telling a Major Corporation not to poison their kids, mentally and physically, by selling them garbage and rewarding them for eating with.. more garbage.

Some of the toys also market the mind-destroying Disney Paradigm to kids. Sit and watch, kids, let the Nice TV tell you what you must think say and do. The Nice TV tells you not to bother doing anything, just sit and watch… watch and sit… until your parental units drive you to the Nice “restaurant” to buy more food in one meal than you need in a whole day, and to buy more advertising for Mr Nice TV to tell you to sit and watch, watch and sit, with a pause every now and then for eating Garbage.

Soylent Green is People.

Americans fail survival: “Par ce-que c’est vous etes beaucoup Putains.”

My original title was going te be “Survival Show teaches non-survival”, we’ve been watching Discovery Channel nature shows, today there was a show about swarms of various animals. One of the segments showed these flies that every 28.3 days (lunar cycle) float up from Lake Victoria in Africa. Showed among other things the villagers round about eating the flies, cooked of course, free protein is a luxury ticket item in most of the world. Miss Johnnie is kind of squeamish about things like that, but… the real story was this commercial for another show, “Dual Survival” which aired three times during the “swarm” show. Showing a team-survival situation with “two men with vastly different styles of survival” One of them was this Swede with Viking braids hanging down to his belly. And the other, an American.

The American was doing plenty of whining, bitching and sniveling about eating grubs and slugs and bugs. Reason I know he’s American, just from the two short commercials featuring him, he says “No, I’m only going to eat Red Meat from four-legged mammals, because I’m an AMERICAN!”

Uhh… yeah. So are grizzly bears and THEY eat a lot of bugs, slugs and grubs. Protein doesn’t come cheap. Or easy. The only reason America happens to have a lot of Red Meat right now is all the wars of conquest from the past two and a half centuries. It’s cost us our ecology twice and our economy several times. Now it’s giving us health problems the rest of the world could only envy, an Overdose of Protein, Sugar and Fats. It’s called “diabetes” which is not one strictly defined disease. It’s a chemical imbalance that affects the endocrine system. That’s the system of organs and glands which regulate the chemical balance of the entire rest of the body.

The organelles we’re most used to seeing as the “root” of the problem are in the pancreas and are called the Islets of Langherhans, I probably misspelled that last word.

They regulate the production of Insulins and Ketones. The insulins are necessary to digest or at least dispose of sugars from the body. Too much insulin, or too little, either way it’s toxic. The Ketones, proteins and fats.. and insulin.

So with a high-fat, high sugar, high protein diet that our bodies were never meant to survive upon, SURPRISE…

It’s a triple whammy. The ketones also adversely affect the kidneys, and the liver. And the heart.

Starting the chain reaction (more like a spiral of chains) with a simple overdose of what would otherwise be necessary parts of our diet… just, you know, in Smaller Amounts… If you’d care to visualize it , think of all your vital organs declaring war on each other.

Then there’s the OTHER side… what is the (smaller portions of) Proteins, Sugars and Fats supposed to fuel? An exercise regimen that used to be imposed simply by the act of securing those (smaller amounts of) Proteins, Sugars and Fats. Mostly it involved a lot of walking. Running too, some of the proteins and fats don’t exactly like being eaten and take measures to avoid it.

So this guy who’s supposed to be a “survival expert” is teaching the very opposite lesson to all that. He wants Red Meat from four-legged Mammals. And making Americans look like a bunch of titty-baby spoiled rich kids. Of course he’s not alone nor is it anything new.

My dad was in North Africa during the overthrow of French rule in Algeria, in 1957- 1958. Got to talk to Foreign Legionnaires, or as he put it “Had to” associate with them. He mentioned that they were kind of really hard core. Most of them weren’t French and the only way a French person would go into the Foreign Legion is if he absolutely had to.

One thing Dad mentioned, the conversation had turned to why there weren’t any Americans in the Foreign Legion. Guy told him in French then in English that “Parce que c’est vous etes beaucoup Putains”. Which wasn’t exactly the accurate truth, part of the reason is that Americans are constitutionally forbidden from serving “foreign princes” but what the Legionnaire was saying, translated into English, “you guys are a bunch of pussies.” And that the Legion didn’t actively recruit Americans.

But, you see, the foreigners don’t have to call us that, we have so many of Our Own Toughies who trumpet it to the world.

Survivalist training school for the Green Berets and similar outfits, incidentally, teach them to mostly go for vegetable matter and for the proteins that are easiest to obtain. Bugs, Slugs and Grubs. The saying is “Gourmets … don’t survive, they starve”. You have to eat vegetable matter even if you don’t get calories from it, because you DO always get essential minerals. Potassium for instance, if you don’t get enough potassium (or any, as the case may be) you can become mentally impaired within a matter of days. Poor judgment, loss of depth perception, seeing things that ain’t…

That sort of thing. But the guy is insisting on a McCultural McDiet out on the mountains.

Rather petulantly.

On a TV show that allegedly teaches something about Survival.

You can’t even trust Goobers anymore

By “goobers” I mean Goober Peas. That staple of American Diet in more ways than you can possibly imagine unless you’re allergic to them, Once Again being recalled due to bacteria that exist naturally in the digestive tracts of Carnivores. In this case, like the LAST recall, which was only last year, about this time, it’s Salmonella.

How DOES a bacterium that would ordinarily be found in Dog Poo and in the contaminated meat from improperly slaughtered and mass-production butchered animals (chickens mostly) and from SlaughterFactory companies where the same machines and the same Almost-machine-people employed at the processing plants have to handle the pieces of dead chickens also have to handle the pieces of dead cows, pigs, (who are, like chickens, omnivorous) etc….
How would it get into VEGETABLE Kingdom products like spinach, tomatoes, peppers, Peanut Butter, peanut flour (that last is used in a ghastly huge list of products, I wouldn’t be much surprised to find it in Toothpaste next)?

Droppings from “Illegal Alien” migrant farm workers, as suggested in the spinach and tomato mayhem? Perhaps the droppings from Tent City but that’s another over-hyped non-story…

How about this, (which is far and away the most common scenario): Contaminated bins and contaminated machines and processing tables at the Mega Corporate Food Processing Centers?

And their delivery vehicles. And places like WalMart and McDonalds and those who follow their corporate model (more than half the Corporations is America) regarding people who have the misfortune of being employed by those Jerkoffs, and not getting paid or even in some cases Unpaid sick leave when they have infectious diseases.

The “Migrant Workers shitting in the fields” is easy to believe, (except it wasn’t the root cause or even a secondary, nor yet again a Tertiary cause) because it’s a backward admission from the Corporations that they still use the old Slave Plantation Model of “how to treat farm laborers”.

They treat ALL their workers like that. What’s distressing is that they treat the PEOPLE who handle food the exact same way. Like to eat at Mickey Dee, drink your favorite cup o’ joe at Starbucks? Remember that they FIRE employees who take more than 5 consecutive sick days. That their workweek is all seven days with shortened hours so the company doesn’t have to pay overtime.

Where you can get fired for actually working overtime, because the “experts” at Corporate Headquarters determined that you could have completed your Underpaid Tasks in the allotted time.
If you don’t take bathroom breaks or stuff like that.

Where if you catch something like Influenza, and you’re still contagious 6 days after the symptoms disappear.

Where they make boastful commercials like the Halls “Drill Sergeant” commercial, which they’ve re-introduced, where a Food Worker is encouraged to keep working despite having Respiratory Problems…
They’ve got one like that where a Rambo-Lookalike pops in to a different store.

Because “only a wussy wimp liberal would refrain from working around PEOPLE and/or their FOOD while packing a contagious ailment that might spread to the PEOPLE who buy the products at the stores and restaurants”.
