There are errors in this feature. 12 tsp cannot be both 15 grams (cola) and 50 grams (lemonade). 1 tsp sugar is about 4.0 – 4.5 GRAMS by most references. (thanks to Peam for correcting MY earlier error)
From Dr. Oz site (I’m too lazy just now to go to more authoritative source, but if challenged, I’ll do so) on recommended sugar intake:
“So how many grams should you aim for? As little as possible, but try to stay within the American Heart Association guidelines.
Women: no more than 100 calories per day which equals 6 teaspoons or 24 grams
Men: no more than 150 calories per day which equals 9 teaspoons or 36 grams"
Moscow Mitch will have to call the senate back into special session during their summer holidays! The thoughts-and-prayers (t-a-p) ceiling has been reached, and they’ll have to pass a continuing resolution that allows the t-a-p ceiling to be breached until such time as they can receive more bribes from NRA to permanently increase the ceiling.
OK, Pastis, I can handle your going after the spandex-wearing cycling set (even though I loooooooove the TDF). But going after the Beautiful Game is gonna rile me up. Better stop with this one.
I’ve thought that the framers worked from the underlying assumption that most elected or appointed members of the three branches of government would have honor and would act in accordance with their pledge to uphold the Constitution. Boy were they wrong!!
What other religion has a Roman-era instrument of torture as their logo?
Good as far as it goes. Weren’t there a few other countries involved in the D-Day landing?
Anything that takes away “punishment” of women for the “sin” of having sex is going to be resisted by so-called “Christians” and their GOP minions in state legislatures and the US Government. In mid-20th century, “Christians” stated as much. When that got shown up for the sham that it was, they switched to the “rights of the unborn” to be a more socially acceptable way to ensure continued punishment.
And besides, Jesus (PBUH) spent most of his time on earth railing against the poor and disenfranchised for spending all their time having sex. Right?
“That’s the thing that I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand,” Buttigieg said. “That if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”
You go, Petey B.!!!!!
Now which party is it that is handing people free stuff??
That’s a pretty Gallic-looking nostril on Ms. May. Is there some French reference I’m missing?
