"But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."
Nancy Pelosi


You can't make this stuff up.

Sometimes I think Nancy's horns are growing faster than Barack's but it's hard to say since his are hidden behind those big ears.

A just-as-scary quote from the same Pelosi speech:



But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.


It's about DIET? The health care plan is about diet? I hadn't head that yet. Thanks for the heads up, Nance. Because we want the government telling us what we can eat. We need soda taxes. We need regulation of Big Macs. We need government telling us how much we can weigh.

And what of the "prevention, prevention, prevention?" Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't one of the ideas in the various iterations of the house or senate plans to up the age for mamograms?

I do agree that the vast majority of health problems in the adult (not elderly) population are diet related. More correctly, obesity related. That is an aside however to the overall healthcare reform debate.

The scientific, social, and economic merits all warrant their due consideration, and what I find the scariest of all, is that people like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnel, and John Boner are the ones leading the discussion. These people are not experts in ANYTHING but manipulation, lying, and propaganda.

As for Nancy's bizarre behavior, she may be suffering from early Alzheimers, much like Reagan did during his latter years of office. Not overtly enough to raise suspicion or diagnosis, but just some really bizarre behavior that's hard to explain.

What scary with Pelosi is that she is drunk with her power and actually believes her own rhetoric

Wow. If I am not mistaken there is a resturant in NYC called Salt. They have 100's of types of salt from around the world. I could be wrong, but it is somewhere, I saw it on the food network. That would really suck for them. I can tell you Krispy Kream cream filled doughnuts are not the same without the trans fat.....

I did try to search for the resturant but could not find it. They have black salt, brown salt, sea salt.....you name it.

I don't know if this is what you are talking about - http://www.saltnyc.com/.

They are located on McDougal St and used to be called Stella's. However, I don't see anything about salt offerings.

I found that too, but not the one I was talking about. It may not be called Salt, but that is it's theme, salt from around the world. Like I said I saw it on the food network and it might be somewhere else besides NYC for all I know.

There is a bill being proposed in NY banning the use of salt in food prep in resturants. $1000 fine. Salt can be on the table for patrons. I can't imagine it passing but alot of things have happened lately that I would never have thought could. I'll try and find a link.

there is definately more to salt that Morton's!
If you can find it, Kauai red salt, from the Hawaiin island has the deepest flavor you've ever tasted. Sprinkle just a tad on your filet before searing, and it does wonders.

That's not far from Desdemona, Tx. We had a lease there a while back. Stayed in Dublin at the Stagecoach Inn. What a dump!

No need to drive to Dublin for my DP fix when I can get a case of them at Sam's for about $.67 per 10 oz. bottle. But they go fast at my house.
