Pulling back the curtain on the Obamacare reveals that all
that hugely touted “transparency” was a lie of gargantuan
proportions. There are now so many exemptions (1,084) that
one has to wonder, “Just exactly who is paying for this
Corporations like GE are exempt, unions are exempt, some
states are exempt and the one thing they all have in common
is that they are Obama supporters. This past week, one of
Obama’s point men in the House, Rep. Anthony (The Whiner)
Weiner, asked for, and is going to receive, a waiver for
New York City.
This is the same guy who tried to mug anyone who said that
the then proposed legisaltion was a piece of unadulterated
crap and actually said, “I wrote the bill…the bill and I
are one.” Now he has figured out that the bill will cost
the city more than it can possibly pay and someone just may
hold him accountable.
But don’t count on it.
This, is in spite of the fact that Obama’s own Medicare
chief actuary now estimates that 20 million people will
lose their current health insurance. Can anybody count how
many times Obama and his allies promised that not one
single American would be forced to give up the coverage
they already had?
Obama also promised that the bill would create thousands of
new jobs. The Congressional Budget Office begs to differ,
saying that there will be a net loss of 800,000 jobs.
800,000! Let’s hope that all of them vote against him in
Over at Health and Human Services, the appropriately
misnamed HHS, Obama acolyte and Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
has admitted cooking the books by $500 billion dollars and
now says the “reforms are unsustainable.” Does this begin
to remind anyone of something that happened before…like
Oh…and by the way…remember the Obama promise that
premiums would not rise? They are rising much faster than
under the old system, even forcing some companies out of
I think everyone should apply for an exemption. We should
flood Washington in a sea of exemption requests. We should
send so much paper to Congressmen, like Anthony (The
Whiner) Weiner, that they have to crawl over, under and all
around it, to get in and out of their offices.
And don’t forget to write on the exemption request, “I
wrote this request for exemption…the exemption request
and I are one.”
I’ll be back tomorrow with more.
With my best wishes for your optimum health,
Before there were cholesterol lowering drugs, there was
garlic, a 100% natural ingredient that has been helping
your heart and many other parts of your body for thousands
of years. In India, garlic, ginger and turmeric are called
the Big Three and they appear in more Indian dishes than
you can count. Indian healers talked about the curative
properties of garlic three thousand years ago and it will
continue to do wonders long after many synthetic drugs have
been proven to be ineffective.
Garlic is an integral part of my Cholesterol Crushing
Combo, along with fish oil and niacin. I have been taking
this combination for over thirty years and I continue to be
free of any clinical heart disease, which took my own
father, way too early.
There have been 1,200, or more, scientific studies done on
garlic. That’s an enormous amount of research and the
results have been amazing. Dozens of medical benefits have
been linked to garlic.
Studies have shown that garlic “thins the blood” and lowers
cholesterol. It also helps prevent high blood pressure,
heart disease and stroke.
In the lab, garlic appears to block the growth of cancer
cells. Population studies show that people who consume
large amounts of garlic have fewer instances of stomach and
colon cancer than those who don’t.
In another study, in a Boston City Hospital, garlic was
successfully used to kill 14 different strains of bacteria
taken from the noses and throats of children.
Let’s focus on cholesterol.
Garlic lowers the level of total cholesterol and the blood
fats known as triglycerides in the bloodstream. According
to Yu Yan Yeh, Ph.D., a professor of nutrition science at
Penn State University, many of garlic’s protective effects
take place in the liver, where endogenous cholesterol is
In lab studies, rats given garlic extract produced 87% less
cholesterol and 64% fewer triglycerides. “The liver is a
primary place in the body for fat synthesis and for
production of cholesterol,” says Dr. Yeh. “When fewer of
these substances are made in the liver, there are fewer of
them in the blood.”
There’s a province in Northern China where people routinely
eat four to seven cloves of garlic per day. For every 100
cases of stomach cancer in the neighboring province, where
they don’t eat much garlic, the garlic eaters will have
only eight, or less.
I know not everyone is a fan of garlic, but garlic is
powerful medicine. By taking my formula you don’t have to
worry about garlic breath, or smelling like a restaurant
exhaust fan. Just pop the caps and forget about it–you’re
One last thing about garlic. You may have heard about cases
of antibiotic resistance in the last few years. This is
where bacteria have shrugged of the effects of drugs.
Garlic has proven to work in some cases where those drugs
have failed. Sometimes the oldest medicine is still the
I’m talking about your hips, knees, ankles…the joints in
your body, not the kind that end up in the ashtray. But
before I get to that, a few words on the Commander-in-
Chief’s basketball brackets, which he got a lot of props
for, two weeks ago, before the NCAA March Madness got
underway. The Jeffe seems to fancy himself a very astute
judge of basketball programs and talent and the ever
fawning media like to hold up this myth, along with all the
others, the principal one being that he knows what he’s
But the truth always comes out, sooner or later. I’m still
waiting for him to produce his birth certificate, but like
Donald Trump, I’m no birther. I just want him to end the
controversy in the simplest way possible, which could be
done the same way that all other Presidents have done it…
by just releasing it (along with all his college
transcripts and writings).
Back to basketball.
Obama’s brackets had a lot of chalk in them, by which I
mean that he went with all the safe choices. He was big on
the predetermined big dogs, who after today are all
finished. He apparently could not see the teams with
tenacity and heart, just as he missed the fact that he was
going to lose the last election in a big way. Let’s hope
his winning streak continues, unabated.
On to your joints…which I know more than a bit about. I
made my living for over 23 years as an orthopaedic surgeon,
fixing primarily hips and knees, which are pretty important
to anyone who values moving around. Some of my repairs and
replacements were done in the case of injury, or accident.
Some were done because of aging.
But many, too many in fact, were done because of fat.
That may come as a big surprise to you, and you may be
saying, “What the hell does he mean?”
Let’s start here. First of all, fat is a stressor. I’ve
talked about this before. If you’re fat, you are more than
likely to have other health problems. That list is pretty
long and would include heart disease, high blood pressure,
stroke, diabetes and many forms of cancer. These diseases
come with additional stressors that multiply your total
Today, I’m going to talk about another stressor brought on
by too much lard and that is stress on your joints. Your
body is built to carry a certain amount of weight in a
normal fashion. By that, I mean that all the parts move in
the way that they were designed to. If you weigh what you
are designed for carrying, everything about your daily
movements should be simpatico.
Now, let’s say you are carrying 45 pounds more than your
frame was designed for and you’ve been doing it for a
number of years. I know from experience that you have a
number of “aches.” Your knees hurt, you probably have to
loosen up your hips, you have pain in your lower back, and
your ankles and feet may be giving you problems (other than
The heavier you are, the worse it gets, until something
gives out. It could be a knee, your back, an ankle, or a
hip. If you’re overweight, these injuries can happen at a
relatively young age.
For instance, just walking, when you’re overweight, at
least triples the stress on your joints. Going up a flight
of stairs increases the joint reaction stresses by a factor
of seven. Running can increase those stresses by a factor
Is it any wonder that I was working all the time? And that
if my clinic was bigger, I could have kept other surgeons
very busy, as well?
You should also worry that under Obamacare you could wait
months to get any of these joint injuries repaired. And
that you could be immobile and in pain, while you wait for
a surgeon even half as good as I was (ask any of my
patients: 90 per cent of my business was by word of mouth
There are many, many damn good reasons to lose fat. Keeping
yourself upright should be at the top of your list.
Technology has brought us many wonders, as far as surgery
is concerned, but nothing beats having the original parts
you were issued, in superb working order.
Fish oil does wondrous things for the joints, keeping them
“lubed,” “greased,” and moving without impingement. If you
need a little extra, for trouble spots, I also have a
special Joint Health Formula that goes over and above.
You can get one or both here:
By the way…VCU, who nobody gave a snowball’s chance in
Hell of getting out of the first round of the playoffs, was
where I started learning how to put a scalpel, saw, drill,
screwdriver and sewing machine to good use.
Many moons ago, perhaps three hundred or more, I was
traveling in Europe, to attend a medical conference in
Austria and because of bad weather, my plane landed in
Munich, Germany. I had to rent a car and drive quite a way
to a beautiful resort, tucked away in what may be the most
beautiful country in the world, with apologies to all those
who think their spot is tops.
The part of the drive that was on the Autobahn was fun,
because you could then, and still can, put the pedal to the
metal, and pretty much go as fast as you want. Being young
and fearless at the time, I didn’t have any trouble
rambling along at one hundred miles an hour, plus. The
driving challenge came when the Autobahn ended and I had to
drive on Austrian roads that had more curves than Brigitte
Bardot, to use a European example.
There was no such thing as a straightaway up in the
mountains, which readily defined the area I was in. To make
matters worse, I was getting the horn from drivers behind
me, who obviously thought I was a rookie at mountain
driving (which I was). In fact, these roads went from
curvy, to downright scary. After about six hours of this, I
had to take a break.
I was tired, thirsty, very hungry, somewhat lost and just a
tad irritable. I spotted an Inn and I pulled over. I walked
in, and…there was no one there, except a seventy year old
woman. I spoke to her in English, not even knowing how to
say “hello,” in the native language. She answered in German
and I walked closer to her table. I spoke a little, she
spoke a little and somehow, she deduced that I was thirsty
and hungry. She disappeared and was gone, for what seemed
like an eternity. Then, I saw her with a big platter and a
She plopped the platter down on the table and went to fill
the stein. On the platter was a giant, open-faced sandwich
with bread, butter, ham and cheese. This was no American
ham and cheese sandwich, but I was too hungry to quibble. I
started eating…and then, something close to spiritual
happened. The simple bread, butter, ham and cheese… had
been transformed into the best sandwich I had ever eaten.
The taste sensation just went on and on. I pulverized that
platter in just a few minutes and the old woman appeared
with another. I dusted that off and asked for another. By
this time, she was laughing.
I should tell you that was it, but it wasn’t. Before I was
through, I ate five platters and then I took a little nap,
right there in the chair. When I woke up, there were
several people in the place and a young man behind the bar.
He looked at me and said, “My grandmother says you eat like
an elephant!” We both laughed and I told him about the
plane, the drive, and being very hungry. I asked him how
far I had to go and the good news was that it was only a
few kilometers to the resort. I then tried to pay and he
refused my money. He said his grandmother had specified
that the “elephant’s” meal was on the house and she felt
complimented that I had eaten so much of her simple food.
Sometimes, simple just can’t be beat. I am sure that every
ingredient in that sandwich was made within a three mile
radius, with no modern equipment, of any kind. It wasn’t
hydrogenated, pasteurized, irradiated, or anything else. It
was one hundred per cent real food, without any additives,
fillers, or chemicals. If I had run a test for omega fats
in the people who lived there, the results would have been
fine. They wouldn’t have had an overload of omega-6′s, and
not enough omega-3′s, as most people today have, from
eating way too much processed food.
We pay a price for what we call progress and we pay dearly
when it comes to health, because we don’t eat like Austrian
villagers, who still do things the old fashioned way. But
we can do a few simple things to improve our health, like
blowtorching off fat. Here are some free tips how:
