Some advice for the weekend…

Ditto / Vegan Out?

lunchhournyc:

Have you heard of Pret A Manger? They make natural food by hand and donate unsold food to charities at the end of the day. They started in London and have made their way to New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C., so today was the last day I’ll ever eat them! I had a crazy filling roast beef, arugula, and parmesan baguette, but I was so distracted by the iPhone 5 announcement that I didn’t take a picture :-(

But hey, this salad looks pretty good too.

vegan-nom-time:

Oooooh I love Pret! Grabbed a yummy lunch from there to eat on the go in London yesterday.

OK, minus the likelihood that that is tuna in the middle (EW, mayo), I just HATED Pret when I lived in London.  Mayo on everything!  If you want a no crust sandwich with a piece of meat or chicken salad and mayo, ask yo mama.  But this actually looks good.  What the heck?

Advice from a fictional priest on pre-marital sex: 

A girl is not like a watermelon.  You cannot poke a hole in her to see whether she is sweet.*

Lessons using food metaphors really resonate with me.  Or at least, give me a laugh.

Oddly, this tomato cup looks amazing.

Welp, Bill Clinton was brilliant.

What can I say?  That speech blew me away.  Clinton is articulate— made sound arguments, talked fact, and pointed out a major weakness of the Romney campaign.  What is Romney’s fiscal plan, anyway?  

I am impressed…and worried.

The people are hurting.  But we hurt because the economy is crap.  We hurt because healthcare is absurd.  We hurt because government is big and inefficient.  

Let’s talk about how it costs a small business $30,000 to insure a 60 YO and his family.  Let’s talk about how adding people to the system doesn’t decrease cost.  Let’s talk about healthcare costs in the US as compared to the rest of the world, or say, Europe.  Let’s talk about adding regulation to businesses related to their healthcare spending, and what that does to small businesses and their ability to hire and flourish.

The people need government to cut the tax loopholes generated by select big businesses and their relationships.  To cut the tax loopholes that allow many individuals to pay no taxes— many individuals who are middle class.  The people need government to allow interstate competition among health insurance carriers.  To allow markets to put pressure on carriers not to simply cover everything and increase premiums to compensate, and to incentivize groups big and small to take care.  To not rely solely on big pools of persons but to rely on the improvement of the present health of all Americans.

Let’s talk about integrity— integrity means telling the truth.

So tell the truth, so-called leaders.
