The Food Show

eating-insectsDave is unimpressed with people who tell him that he needs to eat more bugs.

Chipotle pulls a b.s. move by proclaiming themselves “GMO Free,” except where it costs them too much money.

A US Navy Captain gets relieved… did I tell you guys he had a goat?

Der Mayor preaches Sales Tax again. He still won’t answer any actual questions about where the money is going to go.

And Covered California is broke. Raise your hand if you’re surprised?




Helping Nepal

Most of you know that I have a long association (four generations of my family) with The Salvation Army. The other day on the podcast I mentioned that I was not aware of anything that the Army was doing in Nepal, but now I can tell you that there is an effort by The Salvation Army’s East India Territory to assist in Nepal.

I always caution people in cases such as this to give – if you feel the need to give – to accredited and competent organizations. while I listed several the other day, I did not have this information at hand, but now I can say with confidence that The Salvation Army is also serving in Nepal and would be a worthwhile organization to support for its efforts there, should you choose to do so.

Disaster-Logo-JPEGThe Salvation Army has set up a designated fund where 100 percent of gifts go to relief efforts in Nepal. To give, visit or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769). Check donations to Salvation Army World Service Office (designate “Nepal Earthquake”) can be sent to:

The Moral Equivalent of the Continental Army Soldier

Nepal has been devastated by the earthquake. Even as we speak the death toll is revised upwards, and it will not surprise Dave to see it top 10,000. If you are going to donate to help Nepal, be careful and choose a charity with a solid reputation and history of service in Nepal.

In Baltimore, the 1st amendment is used as an excuse to destroy private property and harass business patrons. The problem is, of course, that the Mayor who allowed this has no clue what the 1st Amendment means when it comes to protests against the Police in her city.

Congress Jeff Denham re-introduces (for the 3rd time) his failed idea known as the ENLIST Act. This time, the Modesto Bee goes along with him and argues that the ENLISTers, otherwise known as illegal immigrants, are the moral equivalent of the Soldiers of The Continental Army under General Washington. After all, goes the argument, those soldiers didn’t have American citizenship papers either, right?

Is Nestlé’s bottled water plant in Sacramento contributing to the drought?
