    to late for me to get into details but here are some basics:

    protein(s) are used to build & repair muscle tissue, tendons, ligaments and soft connective tissue

    carbs are the main energy source when the body is physically active, running, lifting, when you are truely exerting yourself

    fats are the primary energy source when the body is a rest (sitting, sleeping, desk work, walking, etc.). the brain is also comprised mainly of fatty tissue(s) fatty acids and cholesterol is used to manufacture the cell membrane of all cell structures in the human body
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.
