(Well … except for THAT …)

Abraham Lincoln is the only President looking the other way on our most common coins.  Once someone shoots you in the back of the head, you’re always on your guard.

POISON CENTER?! MY KID JUST ATE SOME MSG!!!

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Do you think monosodium glutamate can kill you? Well, it might if you ate about a bucket of it, then tripped over the bucket and smashed your head on the floor. But any excessive amounts you could eat in a day over a lifetime, won’t do anything but make your food taste better.

Say what? MSG isn’t deadly? Nope, just a typical example of anecdotal health bullshit the media grabs and blows up to sell papers. And you, of course, believed it (unless you’re an Italian who doesn’t believe anything). Of course there are a very few scientists who put it in the same category as “deadly” salt, soda, and sugar. Anything could be deadly if you consume massive quantities of it. Even the US FDA says MSG is “generally considered safe” and they don’t believe anything is 100% safe.

So why do Chinese restaurants advertise “No MSG Used”? Well what would you do if masses of ignorant diners refused to have dinner at your humble eatery because they think they’ll be poisoned?

Have you ever noticed that unlike tobacco, alcohol, saccharine, and a zillion other things, there are no government warnings about MSG? That’s because there’s never been a valid, scientific study by the government or the academic world to show that MSG is harmful – except to owners of Chinese restaurants.

I never really liked Al Franken. I didn’t like him as a comedian nor as a politician. His groping incident makes me like him even less.

BUT to charge him with sexual harrassment on the same level as Judge Roy Moore is absolute horseshit. Being a sexist asshole one time is a long, long way from being a pedophile. And comparing Franken’s sexual antics to those of President Asswipe, Harvey Weinstein, Bill O’Reilly, Bill Cosby, or Bill Clinton is ridiculous.

People have lost their fucking minds in this witch-hunt!
