Red Sox Irradiated Their Own, Which Put Me to Thinking.

Many years ago, I was in the coal-mining business, in West Virginia. It was there that I had an interesting conversation with a grizzled old coal-miner, who had once been trapped deep underground, after a cave-in.

“When I heard the rumblings of that cave-in getting closer to me,” he said, “well … that put me to thinking.”

When suddenly assaulted by an intemperate crisis, most of us are thrown into a state of fear, which inhibits any thinking. But perhaps, the old miner was simply calling the fear he must have felt – “thinking.”

Today, historic dangers are at hand for Americans, from almost every quarter, from our federal government to the pharmaceutical/medical combine, throwing some of us into a paralytic fear, with still fewer of us able to give our precarious situation much thought at all. The despotic triumvirate of the federal government, international banks, and multi-national corporations have made life much like trying to transverse a mine-field, without many of us knowing where the land mines are, and many more not even knowing they are in a mine field; such is their desire to avoid being fearful or inconvenienced with thinking.

From personal experience, I know the way I’ve tried to avoid fear, or being forced to think, is to look to “authorities” or “experts” to answer my questions. After all, isn’t that what they’re paid to do?

But, in more responsible moments, I’m nagged by the words of Albert Einstein who said, “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.” More

A Serious Warning about Nano-Technology in Cosmeceuticals

Dr. Epstein’s background makes him exceptionally well-qualified to discuss topics related to cancer prevention, and the toxicological causes of cancer that must be part of any effective cancer prevention plan.

In this interview he offers a vital overview of four topics, three of them related to toxic exposures that promote cancer, and lastly, he raises an urgently important question: With everything we already know about cancer, why is prevention completely ignored in the government’s cancer plan?

Once you look at what’s being done, and more importantly, what’s NOT being done, cancer starts to look like a profitable business plan in and of itself. Only when viewed under this loupe does ignoring cancer prevention make sense.

FDA Raids Amish Farmer Dan Allgyer

Please take action (see ACTION at end of notice)

Kinzers, PA-At 4:30 a.m. on Tuesday April 20, Amish farmer Dan Allgyer went outside to begin milking his small herd of dairy cows.  On the normally quiet Kinzer Road in front of his farm, just a few miles from the Nickel Mines Amish massacre of 2006, several unfamiliar vehicles drove slowly past.  Two months prior, on February 4, FDA agents had trespassed on Allgyer’s farm, claiming to be conducting an “investigation.”  Allgyer had suspected they would be back at some point, because many other small dairy farms around the country have been similarly treated by the FDA. Following is Dan’s account of Tuesday morning’s events:
 
I became aware of the cars as soon as I walked out on the sidewalk as part of my morning routine around 4:30 a.m. and immediately said to myself something is going on, there is too much traffic on Kinzer Road.  I was watching and noticed three cars were cruising down Kinzer Road right behind each other, and immediately thought, hey, that looks like trouble. I watched and pretty soon one car came back and parked on my neighbor’s farm, on private property, just as the FDA agents had when they came on my property in February; it was exactly the same place.

Monsanto under investigation in seven states

Leave a comment

Live link: MERCOLA.com

According to Bloomberg, the seven-state antitrust probe adds to previous allegations of abusive competitive tactics and is a serious threat to Monsanto’s soybean market share.

It would almost seem like an open-and-shut case when you consider Monsanto’s history of quenching the competition at nearly any cost, and being found guilty of falsely marketing dangerous herbicide as biodegradable and environmentally friendly.

But I guess that still remains to be seen. Let’s just hope they don’t deem Monsanto too big to nail, or fail, like the pharmaceutical company Pfizer and any number of banks…

One problem I foresee though, is that not only has Monsanto become the dominat force in the seed market by buying up seed companies, they’ve become the Goliath that they are by influencing politics from the ground-floor and up. More

The 100 Years War: Collectivism vs. Individualism

Americans are caught in a war and it is time to choose sides or be prepared to live with the consequences. In this war there are two sides vying for victory: the forces of collectivism and the forces of individualism. Those Americans who plan to wait out the results and live with the fallout should think twice since the victor will have a profound influence on their lives. That is because the collectivists seek to control every aspect of the lives of every American and every person on the planet. The individualists wish only to win control over the degree of power possessed by government and wish no control over the lives of Americans — no power, no money, no special place in the economy. They want to ensure government remains constitutionally limited and creates the proper environment for peace and prosperity. Individualists know that when people have maximum freedom and government confines itself to the most basic functions, that the impacts of man’s most negative aspects are minimized and that society and the individuals in it reach their maximum potential. In other words, individualists seek to liberate man and collectivists seek to control man. I am fighting with the individualists. More

Sask. Party wants to ‘dissolve’ rights tribunal, NDP says

SUBJECT:  Support for Human Rights cases (appeals) to be handled in the Courts.  Personal experience.  

TO:  Don Morgan, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Saskatchewan

CC:   Frank Quennell (NDP Justice critic), Dr. Stuart Houston

Dear Don Morgan,

RE:  Protection of Human Rights in Saskatchewan

My personal experience supports your statement “the Tribunal is “too close” to the Commission”, as reported in the appended CBC news report.  There is a problem with the current arrangement that needs to be addressed.  Your efforts will hopefully bring my despair with the system to an end!

The idea that human rights complaints should be handled outside the Court system sounds good.  By removing the costs of the court system, justice becomes accessible – so the argument goes.

However, my experience with the Human Rights Commission and Tribunal led me to conclude that in Saskatchewan we have only the illusion of a system for the protection of human rights.   My real-life experience completely undermined my faith in our institutions.  I said to friends, “We are supporting a system that is a sham.”

Not only are the Human Rights Commission and Tribunal “too close”, they also operate in a closed environment.  At no time was I able to make a presentation in person.  I was not able to ask questions of the Tribunal.   They simply decree that it shall be thus.  The Justice system is far from perfect, but it is at least transparent.

KCA asks ag groups to band together against NAIS

HIGH PLAINS/MIDWEST JOURNAL

Kansas 4-23-10

With USDA agreeing to discard its policy on animal disease traceability and the National Animal Identification System, Kansas Cattlemen’s Association contacted several other Kansas animal agriculture groups and asked them to support state legislation that would oppose mandatory NAIS.

Kansas Cattlemen’s Association, through its membership policy, supports disease control and participation in a workable disease program. However, in the past several years, USDA has promoted a cost-prohibitive and ineffective NAIS that producers have adamantly opposed. With USDA shifting its focus to providing workable guidelines and allowing individual states to establish disease programs, KCA took the lead to encourage support for state legislation that would oppose mandatory NAIS.

KCA contacted Kansas Livestock Association, Kansas Farmers Union, Kansas Farm Bureau, and Kansas Rural Center asking for support as KCA addresses the Kansas legislature to encourage state lawmakers to pass legislation making mandatory NAIS illegal. KCA looks forward to each group’s response and working as a coalition to advocating for the interest of Kansas producers.
