Reagan: Socialized Medicine is Opposite of Freedom

This is a powerful argument from our former president Ronald Reagan…

My Advice For Turkey Day

turk (1) With Thanksgiving hours away, it’s time to prepare your body for a massive inflow of calories.  I’m not going to tell you to skip dessert or cut your portions.  I say eat up and enjoy.  Here’s how to make the most of the calorie fest we call -- Thanksgiving.

  1. Burn some calories in the morning.  When you wake up tomorrow take a 30 minute brisk walk or join a Turkey Trot race.  The benefits of moving your body first thing are two fold.  First is the obvious – exercise will increase your metabolism and prepare your body to use the calories from the Turkey feast.  Second, this will help with the guilt of eating a hefty meal…
  2. Eat a light snack 3 hours before the big one.  Some people starve all day to prepare for the massive dose of food.  This is a mistake.  Keeping your body from this kind of starvation state will reduce the amount of calories converted to fat.  I suggest eating a bowl of fresh fruit, maybe a light sandwich.  Smaller than a regular lunch but enough to satisfy.
  3. Eat Slow.  The faster you eat to more you can eat.  Your body will turn off the hunger centers in your brain when your blood sugar goes up.  If you eat fast enough it’s possible to eat tons of food before this hunger center turns off.  This will lead to over eating.  So take it slow and listen to your hunger.
  4. Have No Guilt. Be thankful for the food in front of you.  We are so blessed both individually and as a nation.  Be thankful for God’s blessings and enjoy.  Enjoy the turkey, gravy, brownies, homemade bread, family and friends.  Don't worry, there will be plenty of time to exercise after the new year…

Realistic Warfare Game: Sit and Wait for Instructions, Fix Trucks

Obama is considering the idea of thinking about giving orders that may or may not increase the number of troops in Afghanistan.   Today, after months of thinking, it turns out he is going to start over.

Meanwhile, new game came out to train future soldiers on how to wait for orders.

Marathon Scheduled…That Was Easy.

I signed up to run the Go! St. Louis Marathon in April 2010.  I have never ran the marathon distance of 26.2 miles.  Over 250,000 people run marathons each year so how hard could it be.  If they can do it so can I, right.

marathon_trainingI am starting a new thread of blog posts on my marathon training.  I will show you how not to train and track all my injuries and set-backs.  I’ll keep you posted on the progress (or regress).

Currently I’m doing some easy 2-3 miles runs a few times a week.  Since signing up for the race I have logged 17.7 miles since November 1st.  That’s almost 26.2.  No biggie…

To be continued…

My View of the Healthcare Vote


This is how I watched the healthcare vote go down in the House of Representatives.  Here are some sample tweets that came across my screen…

KatyinIndy RT @Adrienne2012 Michael Steele said he's listening to these Dems applaud themselves out of office next year!

mcjj4 Our House has turned against Americans....the healthcare bill passed.

adams7kids Rangel is on now...I think I'm going to vomit.

es1999 RT mkhammer A "historic" vote for the same utterly failed entitlement mentality that's already sinking us.

@thekencook It is easy for the elite to like communism, it only hurts the poor and middle class.

bencolmery4 Maybe we're one step closer to not having all of my European friends mocking the absurdity of our health care system

thomasmmm RT @jerell "Quit worrying about your health. It'll go away." - Robert Orben


midge373 #healthcare, nancy pelosi...... omg I need a barf bag!

kiliffe RT @BreakingNews: "Sadly for America, the Pelosi Takeover prevailed by 220 to 215," @CongJoeWilson writes after passage of #hcr.

blancastella "Being a woman is not a pre-existing condition" Nancy Pelosi (watching on CNN)

DelmarvaWireman Pelosi---"kids" can stay on parents plan till age 27 ----how lovely

DetroitBougie Nancy Pelosi is a role model of how women who are bout it, get things done. HOUSE PASSES HEALTH CARE REFORM BILL 220-215!

sgoodger RT @RonPaul4Freedom: Might be a good time to point out@JohnDennis2010 is challenging Pelosi in 2010...

Congress: Hear Us Now or Hear Us in 2010


Today a crowd descended on the capital with a clear message, “Kill the Bill”.  It looks like the healthcare bill is going to be voted on this Saturday.  That means it’s time to let your congress person know your views on the bill.  Call 202-225-03121 or 202-224-3121 to let your voice be heard. 

If you are not sure who your representative is, visit the House of Representative site.

Watch the Twitter hashtag #healthcare for all the action.  You can also follow me on “the Twitter” by clicking here -->@craigmar.
