Comment Re:Abolish NASA, and deregulate aerospace. (Score 1) 156

Then you'll have a bunch of space launch companies with no work to do other than launching private satellites...although without regulation in space, maybe they'll also launch autonomous space fighters to attack competing satellites and defend their own. And then we'll have Kessler syndrome and the whole space launch business will shut down. And then everyone will have to buy flaming space junk insurance for their homes and cars.

Maybe the space junk insurance industry will be bigger than the space launch industry and Trump could play that as an economic win?

There's a video called: "Sugar: the bitter truth."

My take:
-Sugar and HFCS are virtually the same thing (bad)
-Glucose is the body's NATURAL sugar. Processed in your stomach.
-Fructose is processed by the liver because your body sees it as a poison. (Just like alcohol)
-Fructose is alcohol without the buzz
-Fructose with Fiber (aka real fruit) Good because of the fiber
-Fructose w/o Fiber (aka fruit juice) Bad (Fructose tells you body you ate nothing, so you eat more)

Meanwhile many studies are coming out that say ANY artificial sweetener is bad for you

Did you read this part?

"You bet your life that it is (a conflict)," Norman Ornstein, a political scientist at the American Enterprise Institute, said of defunding the Energy Star program. He agrees with Energy Star's contention that the ratings can affect the value of a property.

If that isn't clear enough, no more energy star ratings = no more property value negatives to Trump's hotels being horrible energy-wasting shitboxes (one tower he owns that was finished in 2009 scored 9 out of 100!).
