Properly label gmo food! We have a right to know what we are eating!

3 Comments

We have just a few days to stop the United States government from preventing the world from properly labeling genetically modified foods (GMOs).

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have adopted a pro-corporate position that laughably claims labeling GM/GE foods creates the “false” impression that “that the labeled food is in some way different from other foods.”

And next week, at the United Nations meeting in Canada, they will tell the world to adopt the same position, preventing other countries from rightly labeling GMOs as different from fresh, natural food. The implications of this position could further undermine organic food standards all over the world, especially organic labeling.

We know that GMO food created by the likes of Monsanto is not only “different” but unhealthy and unsustainable. Can you help us tell the USDA and FDA to wake up and drop this ridiculous position?

Click here to tell the USDA and FDA: the world should be free to label GMO foods as such.

While the rest of the world wants to be able to label unnatural GMOs, Barack Obama’s USDA and FDA have adopted pro-corporate food positions GMOs. Unless we act now, the United States will go to this meeting telling the world that GMO foods are not different and should not be labeled.

GMO foods, by definition, are genetically different. By altering nature’s design in order to withstand a barrage of chemicals and other poisons, humans are without question creating a new, different kind of food.

We need to tell the USDA and FDA to abandon its wrongheaded, corporate food position that GMOs are the same as non-GMO foods. Sign our petition now before the deadline on Monday.

Thank you for your support on this urgent petition – please share this with anyone you know who cares about their food.

The Wages of Greed Writ Large

Fiduciary, schmiduciary – let ‘em eat cake.

During the Senate hearings yesterday (April 27, 2010), this was said:

“A Republican member, Senator Susan M. Collins of Maine, turned from one witness to the next as she asked repeatedly whether they felt a duty to act in the best interest of their clients. Only one of the four witnesses she questioned seemed to affirm such a duty outright.” (NY Times)

WHAT! In the six plus years I was employed as a registered representative of an investment firm, the surest way to be summarily fired was to forget our fiduciary responsibility to our clients.

Remember, I bring only sandbox economics to this discussion. I have no wallpaper beyond my Insurance Agent License and my Registered Representative Licensure. I am not aware if the rules are different for investment banks, but I doubt it.

Common sense tells us that a market that condones deceit and rewards greed is bound to fail eventually, and the people who “made that market” (not unlike a Ponzi Scheme) will not be the ones who pay the price for that failure.

The posture adopted by the Goldman Sachs executives in the hearing is no mystery. Anything they say can be used against them in later proceedings; they do not want to go to prison.

Although we can never recover the immense wealth that has been lost, particularly in our retirement funds, they should be made to pay, nonetheless. Those responsible for the actions leading to this collapse should be facing incarceration in Danville if not, more appropriately, Leavenworth.

If I had chosen for an instant to ignore the best interests of my clients, that is from where I would be writing this.

Where is that illusive US Treasury? Can you say Puerto Rico??

Note:  This article originally appeared 4-28-10.  In the brief time that has passed,27  CFR 250.11, cited as the legal definition of the Treasury Secretary has somehow mysteriously and without explanantion, been wiped from the Code of Federal Regulations.  It has also been wiped from all legal websites carrying copies of CFR and USC.  250.11 was titled “definitions” and described the Secretary of the Treasury as one in Puerto Rico, and the IRS as an enforcement arm of the IMF>>>>>>>

See also: Treasury Secretary does not work for the United States

THERE IS NO US TREASURY! The US Treasury office, the enforcement agency of the IMF/World Bank, is actually located in Puerto Rico and is not a US agency. 

Looking in 27 CFR 250.11 again for the definition of “Secretary” as found in all the above. The defining term for “Secretary” is, “The Secretary of the Treasury of Puerto Rico.” That man is, not Timothy Geithner.

Who does timothy Geithner work for ?

“The Chief Financial Officer of the government, the Secretary serves as Chairman Pro Tempore of the President’s Economic Policy Council, Chairman of the Boards and Managing Trustee of the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds, and as U.S. Governor (note: they do not refer to him as the US secretary or as his position being that of a cabinet secretary to the president) of the International Monetary Fund, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.”

The identity of the Secretary is not found in title 26 U.S.C. The only reference to the identity of the Secretary of the Treasury is in 27 C.F.R. at section 250.11 (definitions) which specifically states: The defining term for secretary is: “Secretary means Secretary of the Treasury of Puerto Rico”.

What is Washington thinking? Millions out of work and they up the number of green cards

Leave a comment

Live Link: The National Examiner

 “With 1 in 5 Americans out of work, Obama issues over a million green cards .”

April 11, 5:36 AM Immigration Reform Examiner Dave Gibson

________________________________________________

The Department of Homeland Security has just reported that during 2009, they issued 1,130,818 new Green Cards to foreign nationals, allowing them to work legally in this country. That number represents the fourth highest number of cards issued in one year.

750,000 of the new Green Cards were given to the families of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents.

The top four recipient nations are as follows:

-Mexico…164,920
-China…receiving 64,238
-Philippines…60,029
-India…57,304

In Feb. 2009, the financial institution Merrill Lynch announced that the nation’s actual unemployment rate had reached 13.9 percent. A year later, that number had risen to 17.3 percent. This figure represents Americans who have been laid off from full-time positions and are now working part-time, as well as those who have simply stopped looking for work, and workers whose unemployment benefits have run out.

The official unemployment figure given monthly by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is now listed around 10 percent, but represents only those Americans currently receiving unemployment checks, and is not truly indicative of the dire employment situation now facing the U.S. More

The discontent expressed by the public over the ever increasing spending and taxation of the American people is of major concern to the power elite who have for so long, had everything their way.  No questions asked.  Every effort is being made to marginalize or define those who are standing up in opposition as somehow “the crazies” or right wing/left wing radicals of some sort. 

It is apparently coming as somewhat of a surprise to the power brokers in the District of Criminals and their corporate donor’s and special interest friends, to see the uprising of the middle class and the accompanying demand that the corruption in Washington cease; immediately.

Of most concern to the power brokers in the Criminal district is the rise and growth of the patriot movement.  In fact, it is of so much concern the MSM (for morons) has dutifully helped those who have profited from the unregulated graft, theft, corruption, bribery, legislative fraud, and legislative declarations of what is nothing less than an openly declared war against the people of the (50) united yet sovereign states by the corporate government.  More

I came of age in the ‘60’s’ when the country was in the throws of fighting to end the Viet Nam war.  We marched on Washington; held protests and burned draft cards along with our bra’s in some cases, but the fact was we were out there; passionate, fired up, ready to take on the establishment for what we saw as egregious wrongs perpetrated by the rich and powerful who would have willingly sacrificed any one of us as long as they could be assured to profit and didn’t have to get their hands dirty….or their kids hands either. 

I was a newly married young woman at the time all this was happening, my husband a Marine in the 5th Reconnaissance.  The man I married came home from that war suffering from horrendous nightmares and the lifetime effects of Agent Orange along with multiple other injuries which have afflicted him for all these years since.  They gave him a bronze star and several other medals; I can only assume this was the reward for the sacrifice he made in yet another war that was waged for corporate profits but sold as another of those that had to be fought to save some country that didn’t want us there to begin with.  We weren’t there to save anyone, not even our own.  There was money to be made and if our military had to be sacrificed for those profits; so be it.

The Death of the Republic Revisited

In my article, How the American Republic Died at Philadelphia in 1787 I showed, with quotes from the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, alike, how our original constitution, the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union (1781) was illegally scrapped and replaced with a new Constitution (1787), which formed a wholly new government – one which was deliberately designed to grow into the fascistic behemoth we see today. Here, I will go into the various ingenious ways in which the Federalists designed the Constitution to achieve that end, all while making it appear as though our liberties were safeguarded.

First, though, I think it is necessary to point out exactly how and why this subterfuge was illegal, in the first place. The best way of doing so is to simply examine the wording of Article VIII, Section 1 of the Articles of Confederation, which says:

“And the Articles of this Confederation shall be inviolably observed by every state, and the union shall be perpetual; nor shall any alteration at any time hereafter be made in any of them; unless such alteration be agreed to in a Congress of the United States, and be afterwards confirmed by the legislatures of every state.” More

You know what they say about high fructose corn syrup! It is way worse than we thought!

Leave a comment

“The back-to-back, double whammy announcements that PepsiCo is ditching high fructose corn syrup in Gatorade along with the results of a scathing new study from researchers at Princeton make it official — allies of the controversial sweetener have lost the war,” BNET writes.

For years, the Corn Refiners Association has been arguing that HFCS is a perfectly natural product that is equal to other forms of sugar.

Of course, the Corn Refiners Association is not going to go down easily. Currently, they appear to be pretending the problem simply doesn’t exist.

On their Web site, “SweetSurprise.com”, they are still trumpeting an episode of the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric that ran a report basically parroting the industry line — “high fructose corn syrup is just sugar with an image problem.”

However, a Princeton research team has again demonstrated that all sweeteners are NOT equal when it comes to weight gain — rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same. More

Is Obama a Congenital Liar & Sadistic Torturer, or    Just a Man Caught in a Job Much Too Big for Him? 

I could only be called semi-handsome … in a dim light … at 20 feet … many years ago.

Good looks may not be everything, but they can give one a head start in life. But, paraphrasing Mark Twain, “God must love plain looking (ugly) people as he made so many of us.” And, I’d rather be loved by God than look like Rock Hudson used to look, or how Tom Cruise looks, today.

Still, next life time, I’d like to have a six foot, four inch tall body, with muscular, well-shaped limbs, a fabulous throwing arm, jet-black hair (that later turns to a steel gray), piercing blue eyes, weighing in at a slim 235 pounds, all top off with a kill-her smile. I’m talkin’ tall, dark, and devastating. No more Willie Nelson looks for me, unless I can sing and write music like he can.

If God will give me such looks, I promise to try to win his love, in spite of my gorgeousness. Which reminds me of another good-looking chap, who needs to work over-time to win God’s love: Barack Hussein Obama, once known as Barry Soetero.

Why the name change Mr. Obama? Anybody know?

Not long ago Obama, a relatively unknown Afro-American, was being sheep-dipped (gaining an identity, to build creditability) as a Constitutional Law professor (when he – by rights – should have been studying our Constitution) at the highly regarded University of Chicago School of Law, while he doubled as an Illinois state legislator.

And even though flextime Professor Obama had produced no original scholarship papers on Constitutional Law, he was offered a tenured position at the lofty Chicago School of Law. But oddly enough, hard working Professor Obama refused tenure, as he must have known he was on a much faster greased track to something much bigger … if … he could only improve his poor teleprompter reading skills of what others wrote for him.

And, Mr. Soetero … er… Mr. Obama applied himself to his trade, which was not statesmanship, but neuro-linquistics. And in time, Obama’s teleprompter reading coaches perfected with their student a slow rhythmic flow of spoken words, broken up with many “uhs,” with the same measured cadence as the words appeared on his teleprompter screens.

Then strangely, in an unprecedented move, the Democratic Party kingmakers gave lowly state Senator Obama a national stage, when allowing him to display his reading cadence at their presidential nominating convention of 2004.

And even more amazingly, the following year, Barack became a United States senator. Then unbelievably, three years later, Mr. Obama became president and commander-in-chief of the most militarily equipped nation on Earth, without ever serving a day in any military. And, unless one is extremely naive, they know that some powerful interests, made Mr. Obama into Mr. President. More
