Don’t buy into the Booker stuff
In February, my doctor not so subtly told me that I needed to lose some weight or I was going to die. Since then, I’ve managed to drop 30 pounds.
There are lots of ways to lose fat. Unfortunately the best way seems to be diet and exercise — the least popular way for most people.
I did it by going from three meals a day to just two. This reduces the amount of food I take in by a third. I also limit eating of sugar and carbs.
Losing weight is not a multiple-choice test. There is no single answer that works for everybody. I’m not trying to force my diet success on anybody. Just because it has worked for me doesn’t guarantee it will work for others.
If someone chooses to eat and exercise a certain way and it doesn’t infringe on anyone’s freedom, it’s their choice to make.
I find it offensive when someone disagrees and tries to force his opinion — about dieting or anything else — on me or others.
Democrats love to use the “My Way Or the Highway” method of winning an argument.
Take for example U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D., N.J.). He is one of the crowd of far-left Democrats running for president in 2020.
Booker is a vegan and he thinks everybody else needs to follow him. If they don’t follow him, they need to be forced to eat as he eats.
Booker recently said this planet “can’t sustain” people eating meat.
Booker said Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.
“You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet. We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry,” Booker told a vegan magazine. “The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact. It’s just not possible.”
“The numbers just don’t add up,” he said. “We will destroy our planet unless we start figuring out a better way forward when it comes to our climate change and our environment.”
Shades of the Green New Deal!
Booker sounds just like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-cortez, D-crazy, who wants to go to war against “farting cows.”
Booker and other Democrats who want to use climate change to force socialism and more government control of our lives never bother to explain how the environment was not destroyed when millions of buffalo roamed the western plains of the United States.
Buffalo pass gas just like cattle. Somehow they didn’t destroy the environment when the country side was black with herds of buffalo. Booker and other liberals hate it when people try to confuse them with facts.
Booker said he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.” He said his vegan “journey” began in 1992 when he became a vegetarian after reading Gandhi’s biography.
Being a liberal Democrat, Booker naturally began looking for ways to force his views on eating on the rest of us. He concluded using climate change was the best way.
More government control is always the answer for Democrats. The cost of that is taking people’s freedoms.
Now, if someone decides to drop a few pounds, there are hundreds of ways they can try.
My wife has had success with what once was called Weight Watchers. I don’t like counting all those points and eating some of the stuff she does. I have the freedom to find my own way.
Here is some of the wit and wisdom of comedian Jeff Foxworthy:
“If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!
“If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
“If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
“If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
“If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.”
That fits right in with Booker wanting everybody to eat “vegan pancakes” and “vegan-stuffed French toast” just because he does.
