Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert Announces Challenge to Speaker Boehner

G4After what Rep. Gohmert (R-TX) calls “years of broken promises” by Republican leadership in Congress, fiscal conservatives and Tea Party Republicans in the US House of Representatives may finally have a chance to get a more like-minded Speaker of the House. The vote in the US House will happen on Tuesday, and many conservative leaders, like FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe, quoted Sunday by The Hill, are strongly encouraging Republican voters to call their representatives and ask them to vote for an alternative to Boehner, like Gohmert or Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), who has also announced his candidacy:

Speaker Boehner has kicked fiscal conservatives off committee positions for voting against his wishes, caved on numerous massive spending bills at the eleventh hour, and abused the legislative process to stomp out opposition by holding surprise votes and giving members little time to actually read the bills before they vote.

I’ve been spending time tonight emailing my representative, and I plan to call tomorrow, as well.  If you don’t know who your representative is, please go to the Congressional Website HERE and click on your state.  Please make your wishes known.

What we CHOOSE to eat will change what we WANT to eat

“Different bacterial species need different nutrients to survive. These bacteria cause cravings based on how many are present and what foods you eat. Because the gut is linked to the immune system, the endocrine system, and the nervous system, those signals could influence our behavior. …

“For instance, some bacteria prefer fat and others sugar. They have a little contest in your gut to see which ones will dominate. So often your cravings and food choices are coming from within you based on your own bacteria. …

“By adding cultured foods and prebiotics (food for bacteria), and by removing highly processed foods and sugar, we cause our bacteria to change; and in turn, they change our desire for certain foods.”
