Dougie takes on FOOD


IReallyAmHopewell

Recommended Posts

Dougie's 1-day French Cooking School= How to microwave frozen French toast sticks(Or maybe that would be Michelle Duggar's French Cooking School).

And let's not forget about all those faaaaaaaaabulous vendors! What a shitshow this whole thing must be. Is Dougie running out of money? It seems likes he's hosting more than his share of conferences these days.

The first 300 people that register will save 25% off the standard price of $99 for an individual and $399 maximum for a family (5 or more people over 5 years old residing in the same household). This generous discount makes the individual price $75 and the family maximum $299! Children 5 and under are free

Like anyone can afford that for one person let alone for a mega family when you count in hotel and meal costs.

I love food. I love eating it, cooking it, reading about it and hearing about it. It's a subject that I probably know better than the average person on the street, though I admit I'm no expert. Reading that description I see nothing more than a hodge-podge of nonsense help together by a very thing thread. And I'm really amused that he uses the topic of food to take a swing at "big government"

I like how he slams 'statist intervention' and a marxist (how?) system for making sure we have clean food/water.

Dougie, you'd likely be long dead/sickened without the USDA/FDA screening just about everything you eat for potential problems. Just go to a third world country and eat a few native meals. It will open your eyes.

I also like how he assumes no one EVER snacks. Plus, some of us only eat twice a day.

I was shaking my head at the factory farm industry = Marxism - really, if there were no government intervention, e.coli would probably be a far more common occurrence (along with a host of other nasties, nevermind grading systems)....what strikes me is the cost of this conference....

What is the theology of food? All I can think of is loaves and fishes (which would be way too "Marxist" for this guy)

if it was not for the factory farm industry the quiverful families would starve to death. cheap food is all they can afford and those processed foods have the most calories for the cost.

I want to know what food heresies are and how I can avoid them. Too bad I can't afford to find out. Guess I'll just have to go on possibly living a life of sin.

I don't think he's ever read Animal Farm.

S'like I say. I think Marxist policy on everything is good ;) but food, WTF. The best I could come up with is "everyone should have enough" and "it should not contain dodgy shit and bad chemicals and the like" neither of which seems particularly radical.

I was also disgusted by Doug listing himself as an entree. I'm not eating that bastard!

So what, exactly, is a "food heresy?" Will a list of heretic foods be provided? Oh Doug, why couldn't you leave this one alone?

And "House Specialties" Special Ladies symposiums, BE-ALL Phillips and the West Ladies. Why don't the West Ladies have first names? And why is there a need to segregate the menfolk from the ladies at this event?

But my kosher dishes taste so much better when I add a pinch of Jesus denial. :(

Don't forget Jewish/Old Testament dietary laws. I'm guessing Doug is like Ned Flanders, keeping kosher 'just to be sure'.

I was so curious as to what "food heresies" could possibly mean that I googled it, to see if anyone else uses the term and what it could mean. I found this, the Concordian Sisters of of Perpetual Parturition. What's this, QF, "orthodox" Lutherans?

Anyway, food heresy is pretty boring in this post. It's about how her church has "Lenten Lunches" and adding a feast to Lent is wrong. I don't know what I was envisioning, but, well I dunno -- food heresy sounded like a lot more fun.

In the blog, he says that food can't defile you spiritually (i.e. no kosher laws.) I too am dying to know what the food heresies are...thinking sexy thoughts about melons and cucumbers?

Ok I defiled myself with rabbit pate, some exquisite cheese from Spain, France, Italy and the UK, as well a encased pork products from Boregonia and Italy. I choked it all down with a big French Burgundy.

Dougie's probably gonna tout the nutritional benefits of rice crispy treats.

There is nothing in this world left to take dominion over...no stone has been left unturned. So Dougie has turned to food. I think he needs counselling...

Yes, and spaghetti squash out the nose is probably a food heresy as well.

I see that Salatin is again involved.

Wait, Joel Salatin? I read about him and his farm in Michael Pollan's 'The Omnivore's Dilemma', and was impressed by his farming methods, although I'm not sure they're sustainable on a large scale, and there were some creepy hints of dominionist rhetoric in the background there. Is he part of the whole VF thing too?

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
