from Flag and Cross:

Congress Voting Itself a Pay Raise

What a great deal! I’m sure every person in America wishes he or she could get together with their fellow employees and just vote themselves a raise.
But that’s not the way the private sector works. The private sector has that darned “merit based” system, where if you perform well, you are compensated accordingly. And I doubt many Americans would say that Congress is anywhere close to performing their duties well.Related image
Instead, how about considering a vote to cut your pay. And is this not a tacit admission by the dems of the strength of the Trump economy?

from The Blaze:

House Democrats push to give themselves pay raises despite pushback

Not all members are on board

House Democrats are moving forward with a spending package that would allow for a $4,500 cost-of-living pay increase for members of Congress, despite pushback from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. read more

WND Exclusive – WHAT ABOUT AMENDING THE 2ND AMENDMENT?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to prevent government infringement on our natural rights as Americans. It was designed to prevent government the ability to bestow and therefore rescind the rights of the individual.

To that, there was an interesting and thought-provoking article in the Washington Post recently. I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered those words in the same sentence: thought-provoking and Washington Post.

As I rarely peruse the pages of the Post, I must thank Jazz Shaw at HotAir.com for bringing it to our attention. read more

5 Ways to Save Money and Shoot More Regularly

from my friends at GunsPros.com:

Save Money on Firearms and Ammo

As great of a hobby and sport that shooting is, firearm lovers all know how expensive it can be. Guns themselves are expensive, then you have the ongoing costs of ammo and range time.

In this article, we’ll cover 5 tips to save money so that you can spend more time shooting!

1) Factor in All Costs Before Buying Your Firearm

Many people buying their first firearm don’t factor in all of the costs to maintain their firearm and regularly feed it with ammunition. If they have $1,000 to spend, it’s too common that they spend nearly all of this on the firearm itself. Often, they then can’t afford to actually go shoot it at the range.

Not only does this deny them the chance to enjoy a great hobby, but it also prevents them from becoming competent with their firearms. It’s all too common for people to buy firearms intended for serious use like home-defense, then not properly familiarize themselves with the gun. read more

Dietary Update for Diabetes

No matter what the latest fad diet tells us to do, we already know the general gist of how to stay healthy – eating too much sugar and fat leads to weight gain and metabolic diseases. But what if you could stay healthier without changing your diet? In mouse tests conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Metabolism Research, researchers have now found a way to alter the fat metabolism in the liver, reducing the chances of diabetes without changing a high-fat diet.

Our bodies store fat in adipose tissue, but after eating high amounts of the stuff over a long period of time it begins to build up in more important places like the liver. That in turn can lead to fatty liver disease, which can then reduce the body’s response to insulin and eventually bring on type 2 diabetes.

A group of fats known as ceramides have long been associated with these metabolic diseases, and plenty of research has in the past focused on lowering their levels by blocking the proteins that create them – ceramide synthases. Unfortunately, it hasn’t always gone to plan.

“Other research groups have already shown that blocking ceramide production in mice prevents the development of insulin resistance,” says Philipp Hammerschmidt, first author of the new study. “However, this is associated with a large number of side effects. If, for example, ceramide synthesis is completely inhibited it can adversely affect the development of the animals.”
