Joshua Sutherland, who uploaded the footage, elaborated more.

“Did you know lions could open car doors?” he wrote. “My sisters were visiting our parents, while serving a mission in South Africa, and had an experience of a lifetime.”

The footage was published in 2014, but only gained widespread attention online this week. At the time of publication, it had received more than 1.4 million views on YouTube.

   Bettijo posted on Main Page The Lobby  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Address to Joint Meeting of Congress

I missed Netanyahu's speech because I had a lunch meeting at church at 11 this morning. I found this complete recording of his address if you, too, were not able to watch it live. Believe me, it is worth watching. Why can't we have a leader like him?

Obama is so embarrassing. He has no class. He acted like a spoiled child who could not have his way. He should have acted like the adult host to a foreign head of state. Instead, he skulked like a spoiled child. My mother would not have tolerated that kind of behavior from me, even when I WAS a child. Anyway, Bibi showed him up just by being Bibi, an adult with class.

   Balogreene  And our countrymen make fun of W and Reagan for the same kind of speech. I have only heard the excerpts from Rush and Mark, I was working earlier, and missed the speech. Remember, Bibi was a fighter before he was a politician.

I have a series of books on my Kindle, by John Lyman, "God's Lions". The PM in those books reminds me of Netanyahu.

   Bettijo posted on Main Page The Lobby  My sentiments exactly!

"Who you are, what you stand for, and how you can articulate your vision are far more critical skills than some kind of conventional idea of "experience." It's been my observation that the longer someone is in office in Washington, the worse he becomes."

   Bettijo posted on Politics  The Democrat party is aging out. Can you name one big name that is not already medicare eligible or will be this year?

Well other than their poodle, Debbie Was-A-Man-Shultz.

Dick Durbin - 70
Chuck Schumer - 64
Debbie Stabenow - 64
James Clyburn - 74

   Papasparky  It's amazing how sometimes simple mathematics reveals the truth. If you add the ages of these 11 Democrats, which totals 776, and divide it by the number 11, you have 70.54 which is almost the exact same number computed to be the average IQ of the Democrat leadership at this time, as researched by the United States Senate Committee on Intelligence.

   Bettijo posted on Health & Diet  On Peanut Butter
Americans consume 700 million pounds of peanut butter every year! That works out to approximately three pounds per person. In fact, over 75 percent of homes in the US have a peanut butter jar sitting in the fridge or pantry.

Peanuts are a new world food, likely originating in Brazil, then working their way up to Mexico. The Aztecs mashed them into a paste as early as 500 years ago.

About half of the peanuts grown in the US are made into peanut butter. The biggest peanut growing states are Georgia, Florida, and Alabama. One acre of peanuts will make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches!

Despite their name, peanuts are technically legumes (like beans ), not nuts. Regardless, they are are rich in mono-unsaturated fats, which help reduce the risk of heart disease. Peanut butter is also a good source of protein. Just 2 tablespoon's worth provide more than 10% of the daily recommended value. Peanut butter is also a good source of vitamins B3 and E, magnesium, folate, and dietary fiber. Be careful with the portion size, as 2 tablespoons will cost you 200 calories.

Unfortunately, the most popular brands of peanut butter sold in supermarkets are not the healthiest. Here is a breakdown based on Fooducate app user scans:

Jif - 26%
Skippy - 17%
Peter Pan - 7%
Smucker's - 6%
Trader Joe's - 4%
Peanut Butter & Co - 3%
Planters - 3%
Great Value - 3%
Many of the popular peanut butters include needless ingredients. For example, many manufacturers add sugar to the mix. In many butters, you will find added oils. In some cases, these are either partially hydrogenated oils (trans-fats ) or fully hydrogenated oils (high in saturated fat ). Additional ingredients such as glycerides are also added in some cases. None of these additves are needed.

Bottom Line
Peanut butter is a nutrient rich food.

The ideal ingredient list includes just one item - peanuts. Maybe a touch of salt.

   Gerty  Aside from having the peanuts crushed before your eyes, is there a brand that has peanuts as its only ingredient?

Or are we not to mention brand names?

   Balogreene  I guess I don't eat peanut butter often enough anymore to worry about such things (maybe once every six months ). As a diabetic, I worry more about sugar than fat, so just buy whatever is on sale. But, if you eat it more often you can make it yourself, by just grinding the peanuts in your food processor. There are recipes online. I think sometimes you have to add oil to get the right consistency.

   Bettijo posted on Main Page The Lobby  Here is an excellent article explaining why we cannot nominate a conservative presidential candidate.

How does a Republican Party seemingly dominated by the South, energized by the Tea Party and elected by conservative voters also consistently support relatively moderate presidential nominees? The answer is the blue-state Republicans.

   Safetydude  I have not read the article I'm just responding to your comment, Bettijo.

If we get a true conservative candidate the grass-root, conservative Republicans and the Tea Party combined can beat back the 'blue-blood country-club let's make the government work so we can stay in power' so-called Republicans, like Ronaldus Magnus did. The blue-blood country-club elites hated him for eight years.

I think Governor Scott Walker, right now, may be that candidate. If not Walker, how about Dr. Ben Carson?

   Bettijo  Governor Walker is my favorite at this point. I LOVE Ben Carson, but would like to see him as VP or in some high-level cabinet position to give him experience. If he were VP under Walker, I suspect he would be a shoo-in in 8 years. As I said on another blog, if Christie or Bush is nominated, I am going to look for a third-party candidate.

   Bettijo posted on Politics  He declares that Democrats offer the “most realistic electoral vehicle” in the fight against greedy Wall Street capitalists, the Tea Party, white supremacists and right-wing evangelicals. “He” is the chairman of the Communist Party USA, John Bachtell, who says that American Communists are ready to align with the Democrat Party to achieve their goals.

   Bettijo posted on Main Page The Lobby  President Obama’s Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch was a charter member of an all-black Harvard sorority — and so was Eric Holder’s wife.

Lynch will face the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday in her first confirmation hearing in her bid to succeed Holder as the nation’s leading law enforcement official.

But can Lynch as an investigator really be objective when it comes to her predecessor, who is currently in contempt of Congress over Fast and Furious scandal document obstruction and would probably warrant investigation from an unbiased successor? After all, Lynch goes way back with Holder’s wife.
