Read This Juan Williams Piece Now

I frequently disagree with Juan Williams. He always makes me think. This may be his best work yet. Please go read it now.

Let me just say to any of my left of center readers who would criticize Mr. Williams because he appears on Fox News. Mr. Williams is the left of center media personality who I (and my Republican friends) see the most on television. You seem to think he’s a turncoat for appearing there. He is not, he is the ambassador for the rational American left on Fox News.

Thank You Mr. President

Dear President Obama,

I’ve been sadly disappointed by the quality of the Republican Presidential Candidates until now. Your words of July 13, 2012 have brought home to me the fact that not only are all the Republican Candidates, even Ron Paul is more qualified to be President than you are. The only Republican I can think of who is less qualified than you are to be President is Henry Kissenger. His sole disqualification is that he is German by birth, and not a natural born citizen.

I’ll be donating to Governor Romney’s campaign. I have never volunteered for a political campaign before, and I may well go so far as to volunteer this time. I do hope you enjoy your retirement starting January 21, 2013. I hope it frees up some time so you can work on your golf game.

For a number of years, I worked for a small business that had at most three employees. Sadly that business ceased to exist when my boss passed away. Let me assure you that my boss did more than everyone else combined to build that business. Yes, his contribution was far more important than mine, although I don’t think he was ever rewarded by the business in a fashion proportionate to his contribution. He took the risk, and could have wound up in bankruptcy court. At worst I would have wound up standing in the unemployment line with my life’s savings intact. I’m just glad I didn’t wind up running the company after his untimely death.

Sincerely,

A Classical Liberal Who Voted For Senator McCain

On A Personal Health Note

I have news of a minor health victory. On January 1 of 2010, I weighed 248.8 pounds, and I decided that was too much. So I decided to start a diet, and I picked the South Beach Diet. Two and half years later, I now weigh exactly 30 pounds less than I did when I started. I’d still like get my weight under 200 pounds. But my body mass index is now 29.7, and that means a goal has been met. Although my goal is not to lose weight, but to be healthy. In the 10 year period before I started the diet, I gained about 80 pounds which was a steady trend in the wrong direction.

When I started, I wasn’t having any health problems from weight yet, but I knew if I didn’t do something that I’d eventually gain even more weight and eventually it would cause health problems. Now, I’ll never know what weight would have been the point where I started developing health problems. I believe I now have a system I can follow to maintain a healthy weight.

So I’d like to thank Dr. Arthur Agatston for writing the South Beach Diet book, and say the $10.17 I paid for the book on Amazon may be the best bargain I’ve ever found for improving my health.

If you’re looking to improve your weight and health, I heartily recommend the South Beach Diet. Although the bargain book seems to be the South Beach Diet Supercharged. I’m not guaranteeing it will work for you, just that it did for me. If you try it and it doesn’t work for you, I encourage you to try something else.
