The correct amount of bacon for a BLT

This is just mean:

Prisoners have a beef after pork chopped from federal prison menus

Inmates will no longer be pigging out on ham or bacon after the Obama administration removed pig products from federal prison menus, in a sudden move being decried by the pork industry.

The federal Bureau of Prisons, responsible for over 200,000 inmates, reportedly imposed the ham ban at the beginning of the month and said it was in response to surveys of prisoners’ food preferences. According to the government, pork just wasn’t a popular menu item.

“Why keep pushing food that people don’t want to eat?” Edmond Ross, a spokesman for the prison bureau, told The Washington Post. “Pork has been the lowest-rated food by inmates for several years.”

But the pork industry has an obvious retort: Seriously, who doesn’t like bacon?

“We find it hard to believe that a survey would have found a majority of any population saying, ‘No thanks, I don’t want any bacon,’” a spokesperson for The National Pork Producers Council told in a statement. “For people who are incarcerated, we understand that they’re denied certain rights and freedoms but we don’t think bacon should be one of them.”

In terms of responding to the move, the NPPC would not rule out legal action.

This is gonna cost Hillary the all important inmate vote.

Seriously though, fuck ’em. I’d go ahead and take beef and chick off the menu too. Let them enjoy a vegan diet. Even better, put Michelle Obama in charge of menu planning for all federal prisons.

No extra salt, no added sugar, just gruel and veggies. When the inmates are weak from hunger they’ll easier to manage, and if they try to riot or escape, just shoot them.

This is an open thread.

    From Mayo Clinic on Drinking Water & Baby Aspirin

    How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night!!

    Heart Attack and Water:

    I asked my Doctor why people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor – Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!

    I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me. Correct time to drink water… Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist! Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:

    2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
    1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
    1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
    1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack

    Water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.
    Mayo Clinic Aspirin Dr. Virend Somers, is a Cardiologist from the Mayo Clinic, who is lead author of the report in the July 29, 2008 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

    Most heart attacks occur in the day, generally between 6 A.M. and noon. Having one during the night, when the heart should be most at rest, means that something unusual happened. Somers and his colleagues have been working for a decade to show that sleep apnea is to blame.

    If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: Aspirin has a 24-hour “half-life”; therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the Aspirin would be strongest in your system.

    Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve instantly on the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.

    Why keep Aspirin by your bedside? It’s about Heart Attacks –

    There are other symptoms of a heart attack, besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating; however, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.

    Note: There may be NO pain in the chest during a heart attack.

    The majority of people (about 60%) who had a heart attack during their sleep did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.

    If that happens, immediately dissolve two aspirins in your mouth and swallow them with a bit of water.

    Afterwards: – Call 911. – Phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by. Say “heart attack!”

    Say that you have taken 2 Aspirins. – Take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and …DO NOT LIE DOWN!

    A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to friends and family, probably one or more lives could be saved!

    Some Fun Facts You Might Never Have Wanted To Know:

    If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it.)

    If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb. (Now that’s more like it!)

    The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.

    A pig’s orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

    A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death. Creepy. (I’m still not over the pig.)

    Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Don’t try this at home; maybe at work.)

    The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male’s head off. (Hey honey I’m home. What the ..? )

    The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It’s like a human jumping the length of a football field. (30 minutes. Lucky pig! Can you imagine?)

    The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. (What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

    Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (I still want to be a pig in my next life…quality over quantity.)

    Butterflies taste with their feet. (Something I always wanted to know.)

    The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hmmm…)

    Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people. (If you’re ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

    Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump. (Okay, so that would be a good thing.)

    A cat’s urine glows under a black light. (I wonder how much the government paid to figure that out.)

    An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain. (I know some people like that.)

    Starfish have no brains. (I know some people like that, too.)

    Polar bears are left-handed. (If they switch, they’ll live a lot longer.)

    Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (What about that pig? Do the dolphins know about the pig?)

      I keep seeing little blurbs “is Obama intentionally trying to start WW3?”. Sometimes I wonder. Hello, Congress?

      • lyn says:

        Probably. He needs those idiot Americans who support him to demand a third term.

        • DeniseVB says:

          There have been bills by his fanboyz in Congress to overturn term limits. All haven’t left “the table” so to speak. Good!

          • lizzy says:

            Since term limits for President was a Constitutional Amendment wouldn’t changing back to no term limits require an amendment? That is a long term process requiring approval by the states. As low as Obama’s popularity is I don’t see that happening. It is a time consuming process.

    CNN Debate Moderator Was Member of Clinton Global Initiative

    CNN host Anderson Cooper, who is set to moderate tonight’s Democratic debate, was listed as a “notable past member” the Clinton Global Initiative’s website along with a number of other big name journalists:

    The list includes: CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Christiane Amanpour, Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, NBC’s Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw, New York Times‘s Thomas Friedman and Nicholas Kristof, Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo, Yahoo’s Katie Couric, The Economist‘s Matthew Bishop, and Financial Times‘ Lionel Barber.

    I flipping love Girl Scouts of America. I took archery as a kid. Loved it. The actual sport is like meditation. The focus the silence the goal. When you study it there is something so zen. I mentioned it to baby girl and she was gung-ho. I could find nothing online. Someone hear said she learned at Girl Scouts so I called. Amazing women. I said my brat has expressed interest. She is not a Scout and due to her myriad activities Girl Scouts is out of the question. Too much stuff. Woman was amazing said thier goal was to provide opportunity. Many girls don’t get. Sounds like your “daughter” gets plenty. She transferred me to the head of archery. I am over flowing with respect. We talked about what studying archery is. Command. Discipline. Focus. I said I sort of like my brat and I want her to be strong strength comes from inside and shooting well requires reflection. Then she said you know there are tons of scholarships available. Hahaha. Gee I never thought of that. I think my 529 accounts I might cover a state school. I obsess over funding college. Well aware a female that can shoot is not common. She is 9 and we walk dogs on Sundays from rescue shelter. Always thinking about her college apps. Volunteer work check. I am an asshole and I deal with the mutts. She genuinely likes it. Such a kind child. Nine years ago she was thrown away. Gets a f a g great uncle. Now she is my hero. I watch her make good decisions. She is not pitiful.
    Anyhow I thought GSA was going to be like that vile pig from HBO’s girls. So wrong was I. Smart women. Caring. None of the ugliness I associate with feminism. Lady who runs archery is going to find me a school.

    does this bother anyone else like it bothers me?
    I was a little girl during WW2. I remember having a woman’s army corp uniform and thinking i was the greatest thing ever. Patriotism was a way of life. Honoring the military was done without second thought.
    My husband was in the Korean war and there was never any thought about not honoring the military by kids.

    Now in the Bomber Billy Ayres educational system things have changed and it makes me sick

    Ace is the place:

    There is a good Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser story called “The Curse of the Smalls and the Stars.” * In the story’s beginning, three minor “gods” are put out that two of their few worshippers, Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, are putting zero effort into worshipping them (as opposed to their usual “very low, but nonzero” level of effort). They propose putting a curse on them to make them see the light — but nothing that’s too terrible, because the three gods can’t afford to lose any worshippers. Just something that will get their attention, and get them to beg for forgiveness.

    Fafhrd is inflicted with the Curse of the Stars — he is so fascinated by the stars of the sky and the patterns between them that he cannot focus on the earthly world in front of him.

    Gray Mouser is inflicted with the Curse of the Smalls — he becomes (absurdly) fascinated with thimbles, coins, bits of string, a tiny shiny rocks. He cannot see the world in front of him, for his fascination with the fabulous tiny treasures beneath his feet.

    These curses cause them to blunder around in the real world and (IIRC) they’re almost killed because of their complete inability to see what the f*** is actually happening right in front of their eyes.

    Anyway, the Left always reminds me of this story. They are either infected with the Curse of the Stars and cannot see the real world because their vision is obscured by fanciful utopias and dreamed realities. They’re always talking about changing every facet of society and remaking mankind in their (deeply insipid) vision.

    And when they’re not plotting the grand metaphysical overthrow of basic human thinking, they are obsessing over break-f***ing-fast sand-f***ing-wiches.

    Or a “racy” cabana shirt a rocket scientist wore.

    Or a football team’s name.


    They do not see the dangers in front of them — ISIS is beheading men across the Middle East, and impressing women into sexual slaveries — because they have the Curse of the Stars and the Smalls.

    But they themselves lay this curse upon themselves: because it’s a flight from reality, and a deliberate one. Rather than talking about something real, like ISIS, they amuse themselves like the Gray Mouser did with a few hairs of a pigeon’s feather that struck him as particularly aesthetic.

    It’s pure decadence, and it will lead to deaths — ours, unfortunately, for the weak will drag down the strong when the ship goes down.
