Gonna Write About Green Pastures’ Fermented Cod Liver Oil, But In a Day or So

…In the meantime, I’m integrating and synthesizing presently, about all of it—but mostly dismissing red herrings. Yes, I’m aware of all of the voices, including Masterjohn’s. Lots of interesting stuff, and since I was on this trail since 2008, I should speak to it in my particular way.

While I chew, here’s a few Facebook meanderings to give you something to love or hate each other over, in comments.

~ But I’ll begin with something I hope nobody can argue about: Stevie Wonder the wonder. With Sting. A man who can’t see, sings. Love it.

~ I can’t wait for Season 3. Kevin Spacey as President.

~ Fart is smart.

~ Of course, laws are the cause of crime, and it’s ironically not a reversal of cause and effect. Bonus to anyone who can elucidate that, and bring the proper principles into play.

~ If you have ever in your life received a citation (euphemism: ticket) for a minor traffic violation, you’re a victim of armed robbery.

Spend some time driving in other countries. I haven’t looked up data, but I’ve driven in Japan for 5 years; in Korea, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand; in France for 2 years, all over Western Europe, and significant stints in Italy and Greece…and also in Mexico. You rarely see cops, and they aren’t out holding you up at gunpoint for money over traffic rulz.

Perhaps it’s the case that Americans are such limp-dick spawn that they just shut up and put up with it. Or, they’re just too fucking stupid in general to have any awareness, which would be my bet. …They’re too busy worrying about international “threats” a million miles away…and of course, the perpetual Next King erection (not a typo).

After all, every 8 years, we kick out a Bad King and erect a Good King. It’s what we do. We’re. That. Fucking. Stupid.

Cops are fist and foremost, hired thieves to raise money for municipalities and states to the tune of billions extorted annually. And the insurance companies aren’t likely to complain, since it gives them “justification” to take a few more hundred from you annually, even though there’s simply no causal link between a person who gets the odd “ticket” and their payout risk. Bedfellows, by statute and commission.

In 2006 we drove 6,000 KM, from Paris to Barcelona, hugged the Med shoreline to Piza and then, via Florence, completed the triangle to Paris via Switzerland and Germany…over three weeks. Saw 2 cop cars the entire time, both in downtown Florence—hanging out in a town square. (I once counted 112 police cars between San Jose and Vista, CA, on a Labor Day weekend dive.)

…It was a very, very dangerous trip, that Euro-thing, what with all the people out on the roads not being stolen from at virtual random so that everyone knows their place.

And the cool thing about Mexico is that even if you do get stopped, which is rare unless you’re utterly careless (which some are), 200 pesos—the equivalent of $13—sends you on your way. Far cry from the $300 tickets issued in CA now, and the downstream effects on your insurance.

Fuck cops. Please alert me to any news of a cop killing, so I can smile.

I’ve perhaps received more negative feedback on my diatribes against cops than anything. Fuck off. You assholes wring your hands over “terrorists” a million miles away, and the fact is, you embrace terrorism in your neighborhood and streets, like a bunch of Stockholm Syndrome drones. Fuck cops. Fuck Republicans. Fuck doG & Cuntry. Follow Cop Block (Facebook too) for just a few days if you’re interested in getting the stinky brown stuff out of your eyes.

Lay 100% of all police brutality on the doorstep of Republicans and Right-Wing Religious FuckFaces. Never vote; but especially, never vote for a Republican or overtly religious person. Ever.

Democrats are commies, but at least we’ll all know we’re subjects of the state and it gets deducted from paychecks and we’ll not have to listen to Fucking Republicans act like it’s an outrage and they’re going to do something any minute but never, ever will.

~ Trumpery.

~ Red Pill memes are immortal.

~ Still immortal.

~ Even when a wild animal looks like a dog…it’s basically a dog, even if a sea mammal.

~ Or a land pack animal… (Saw that on FB this morning but in infinite wisdom I’m sure, not in my feed anymore, even though I shared it.)

~ Get out the hanky. There is no such thing as a bad dog. There are unlimited bad humans.

~ And low and behold, there are also awesome humans. It’s definitive proof that crazy dog ladies are not at all like crazy cat ladies.

~ Completely by the book. The 737 is out front and the 747 is behind, on a higher approach. Reversed could be dramatic, but probably not critical. Commercial passenger craft are way overpowered by design, so any adverse turbulence can be quickly powered out of.

~ Fuck Fox News. What’s new? “Fox News Says People Who Protest Against Police Brutality Are A ‘Murder Movement’.” Basically, it’s regurgitate for moron doG & Cuntry, Lawz & Orderz Republicans. Stupid is as stupid does.

~ And in terms of Democrats, you just can’t fix stupid. Been trying for over 20 years to explain a simple economic reality to them, to no avail; but an encephalitic—or millions of them—are pretty much like zombie apocalypse.

~ I’m not much on the domination of others implicit in the culture of apology. If you did wrong, just don’t do it again if you can help it.

~ Sometimes I can’t help but get my dose of principles as absolute.

I always find myself migrating back to Billy Beck for perspectives, because he is ruthless over principles and their contradiction in even every-day pleasantries we utter to one-another…among other ways principles enter swaths of cognitive dissonance in human minds, but I digress.

My way of stating Billy’s unassailable identification (A=A tautology style) is that really, the only good cops (policing being an honest value people would pay for) aren’t really enforcing laws, per se. They are keeping peace and everyone basically knows how to do that. Professionals are welcome to apply, however, and I salute professionalism—where essentials are emphasized and distinguished from non-essentials—but the job is very LIMITED.

Was Andy Taylor enforcing the law? Perhaps sometimes, but not usually, and I disregard the dramatic elements that compromise the artistic message of what he represented…and especially note the additional element of Barney Fife, the best caricature of modern day cops there ever was.

And you know why that caricature is so apt? Because it was always predictable to people who pay some attention to principles.

~ I began with an FB share this morning with Stevie the Wonder singing a Sting song, with Sting. It’s too long to revive my previous share, but here’s Robert Downey Jr. being Driven To Tears.

Later.

    Heavy handed policing used to be considered leftist I thought.

  2. Jesrad on September 1, 2015 at 03:54

    I stumbled on this other Red Pill lately: http://www.anonymousconservative.com/blog/home-page/ It explains the brain-deadedness of leftism within an evolutionary context. But I wish the author would embrace the inner wolf more.

    I’m very interested to read your next post on the Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil.

    I just finished a bottle recently. But I stumbled upon a report that the Naughty Nutritionist did and it really made me second guess the value of the product. Reading her 100 page report and seeing how Green Pastures responded makes me believe that it’s all scam. She also had their butter oil tested and I think much less expensive ghee had as much K2. Their stuff is really expensive but if it has the goods then I’m willing to pay the price. But I have a gut feeling that it’s expensive snake oil. I can’t wait to read your report.

  4. FrenchFry on September 1, 2015 at 05:15

    Better eat real cod livers! Tastes good and feels good in a salad! The FCLO smells like shit, looks like shit and tastes like shit … So for all practical purposes, you can easily conclude what it is 🙂

    It is also mega expensive. I had a couple of bottles in my fridge a couple of years ago. I don’t what happened to them, I was having some for a few weeks and then forgot all about it. I suspect my wife dumped the whole stuff, I should ask her tonight if I remember it.

    Screw all these supplements, with a proper diet, there is no need to waste money on those.

    By the way, responding to your FB post: It’s “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evils”. You may want to be accurate, but probably not.

    Watch a lot of movies & documentaries, but want them streamed on demand via my computer wherever I am. Don’t own a television nor dvd player, & don’t like having to order dvds & wait for them to come in the mail or anything to do with that whole ritual–which is the main reason I’m watching so very little via netflix these days (especially with their awful new website), and am watching a whole lot via amazon prime instant video. There’s only one reason I haven’t canceled netflix: Frank Underwood with his FU cufflinks…

    • Richard Nikoley on September 1, 2015 at 08:28

      I’m with you Glenda. Haven’t watched TV in months. Internet connection with subscriptions to Prime, Hulu, Netflix and HBO Now is all I need.



    • Glenda on September 1, 2015 at 09:08

      Exactly. With a chromebook, android phone, and kindle fire I have movies, documentaries, & books wherever I go no matter which or all I take with me.

      People ask me what I do about getting The News. My response is: there is nothing “new” in news, it’s just the same rehash today of craziness that’s been going on for centuries. Read history books and you’ll get all The News you’ll ever need. If something happens that directly impacts your immediate world that day, you can be sure that you’ll hear about it whether you want to or not.



    • Richard Nikoley on September 1, 2015 at 12:28

      Important news will always find its way to you.

      In fact, what’s on TV and print from all the mainstream sources, meaningless distinctions over political ideologies notwithstanding, is not “news” at all. Rather it’s ‘The Spin’ on 0.000000000000000000000001% of stuff happening in the world that they, in their exclusive judgment, chose to spin for you—in hopes that they can sell our advertising space and segments for more money as they undertake a process of indoctrinating you into becoming a true believer in their “authoritative” choices and views.

    I could never get into FCLO. Made me sicker than all get out every time I tried it: nausea, horrific burps, the runs, you name it. That helped break my lock-step of taking supplements I read about online based on recommendations by “trusted sources”, lol. If my body says no it means no. Then do n=1 to find out why!

  8. John on September 1, 2015 at 09:37

    I’ve considered purchasing the FCLO/butter oil in the past, but I immediately wondered why they don’t give ratios. Everyone was raving about it in reviews, but I was not willing to part with money without more details. I’m surprised in a good way by all this controversy.

    • Richard Nikoley on September 1, 2015 at 12:30

      I will speak exactly to that ratio issue, John.

      For a preview, see my comment at Wellness Momma on this.



  9. Amy on September 1, 2015 at 10:14

    Hmmm. I always thought that the fermented part probably made it a bit more shelf stable, but never paid much attention to any claims of superior nutritional value over regular CLO. I figured they were probably both about the same once you weeded through all the hyperbole. And if you eat grassfed butter, why bother with “high vitamin butter oil”?

    I personally like the little bit of extra nutritional value in CLO and FCLO versus regular fish oil. And it’s easier on a busy schedule than cooking fatty fish a couple times per week. Others’ mileage may vary. Looking forward to reading Richard’s post on it, too.

    Rusty Diamond is a gem. Thanks for posting. Made me cry then split my skull with smiling. 🙂

    • Richard Nikoley on September 1, 2015 at 12:38

      Yea, and what a gem of a person to take the time to actually make a difference for another specific creature rather than spout platitudes about how “people” should “do something.”

      My wife and I rescued two dogs in the last year and couldn’t be happier with them. Choncho is the sweetest rat terrier male ever, and even though Scout’s nickname is “butthole,” his complete clowness makes up for his buttholiness. 🙂

      BTW, butter oil is indeed different from grassfed butter or ghee. It’s only a fraction of the melted butter, centrifuged so that the specific elements can be separated out. Don’t know what the ratios are, but it’s like getting the specific vitamin value of a pound of butter in less than a tsp.

    It is a crime to murder Billy because he has something you want and he won’t give it to you. We don’t need a written statute to know this.

    It is not a crime to refuse giving money to a bunch of criminals who will used it to murder people. Yet, it is necessary a written statute to criminalize that.

    But the first kind of crime will receive all kind of arguments to try to left it unpunished. The second one, the crime of civil desobidience, can get no pass. We live in a world were non-criminals rot in jail, and criminals are elected to public office.

    Not only law makes crime, law can transmutate a crime into a virtuous action, even a compulsory action. And law can also turn false something that is true. No King can do that, only the belief and the fear of the people can accomplish that.

    The Law should not do anything like that. But that’s what happens when criminals write the laws.
