Why doesn't Rand ever fully smile?

I know, I know, it's a stupid question but as a former dental assistant I wonder if he is ashamed of his teeth? His smile almost never reaches his eyes. Just sayin . . .

What am I reading?

What is this?

Vertebrate animals ingest retinal directly from meat, or produce retinal from one of four carotenoids (beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, gamma-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin), which they must obtain from plants or other photosynthetic organisms (no other carotenoids can be converted by animals to retinal, and some carnivores cannot convert any carotenoids at all).

This is for improving vision?


Good catch!
Topical retin A - tretinion - strong vitamin A



I guess you need a prescription for that?

Do you have a juicer?

I like to juice veggies when I get weak on fasts. Cukes, greens, tomato, and hot peppers with lots of sea salt. Tastes like V8. Miso too for protein is great idea.

How you going to get your lemonade at your convention?

I know, I am nosy. But you seem weak. Be careful. That meeting will be stressful with all those neocons.

Yes, prescription. It thickens skin over time. Best ever.


I have a champion and vitamix, and plan to begin breaking my lemonade fast today with juice and miso, if I can remember to buy it.

Tomorrow when I head to the convention, I will be bringing with me 2 frizen bottles of lemonade and bringing an additional one for the road. I'm feeling great, not weak. I'm actually surprized how well the fast os going on that I have not really been hungry (part of me thinks wow, I could stretch this lemonade part out longer at this rate.. but I don't want to, I had some good belly vegan probiotocs and will have some of that today.. I have two weeks now of a supplomented lemonade diet, just adding miso and juice,

I ordered some business cards for the trip and will send you one. I've been really busy and and am grateful to God for that.

Ohhhhh yeah. I'm not little. I'm statuesque more of a Bea Authur than Betty White http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tde2tH5dhXs

Personally, I think...

he is just a very serious person, with a serious task ahead of him (help save the Republic). Very somber. I can tell you that he was exactly the same when I talked with him on our flight to Tampa (for the Convention). Very serious, but also pretty friendly.

Ron was an OB Dr. not a dentist

Finally pissed off enough to spread the word of Dr. Paul
Here's song I wrote for a close friend and wounded Iraq war veteran:

if you had to work with

if you had to work with treasonous bastards like pelosi, feinstien schumer, mccain, graham and all the rest of that ilk, would you smile?

I don't think I'd smile much either if I had his job

poor guy!

A few years ago there was a video on youtube, it's gone now...

but it was called 'I want a grumpy president. Ron Paul?'

It was this guy who admitted that he wasn't too sophisticated politically but he was getting annoyed at how all the people in the debates were smiling and grinning like idiots, but he noticed that one of them, Ron Paul, never smiled. And he liked that.

He went on to say that the country is in serious trouble, and that while he disagreed with Ron Paul on some things he would probably end up voting for him simply because he doesn't smile a big fake smile like everyone else.

Apparently the guy who made the video pulled it off youtube which is a shame because it was really powerful. Maybe someone should remake it but substitute 'Rand' for 'Ron'.
