“We begin life with the world presenting itself to us as it is. Someone – our parents, teachers, analysts – hypnotizes us to see the world and construe it in the right way. These others label the world, attach names and give voices to the beings and events in it, so that thereafter, we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us. The task is to break the hypnotic spell, so that we become undeaf, unblind and multilingual, thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices and write all its possible meanings in the new book of our existence. Be careful in your choice of hypnotists.” — Sidney Jourard More

Pretext

As it was my intent to deliver three articles in sequence I found my life had again been invaded Thursday morning by an act of vandalism, a person or persons unknown to me entered my barn (burglary) released my animals (a felony in Wisconsin) and opened the doors to the grain storage areas allowing the animals to engorge themselves with grain.  This occurrence coincided with other acts of aggression to individuals opposed to the comprehensive land use plan.  There were three snowmobiles operating unlawfully on the road that night, in the past anyone complaining about such activity has been subject to acts of aggression, as in one case where the complainant had a snowmobiler drive into his driveway and discharge a firearm at his house.   More

“However the major issue is the announced fees for the registration of conservation varieties in Sweden. The Agricultural Department (SJV) in Sweden has proposed a fee of 3000 SEK (approx 300 Euro) for the registration of a new conservation variety and an annual fee of 2000 SEK (approx 200 Euro).”

Two aspects of living intertwine their way into my life on a regular basis : good Art and great Farming. A feeding of the soul along with nurturing of ones body – the basis of a pretty good life.

For the first I can recommend Canadian Robert Bateman as a Master Artist of depth, breadth and originality. Be prepared to sink into his world of detail and, through further investigation, come away amazed.  Not only does he express beauty in his works, but he lives a beautiful life contributing to his community through development of programs designed to educate and protect the natural world he lives in.

For the Second I recommend the humble seed.  If the reader is not familiar with the technical definition of what a seed is, head on over to Wiki for the various -isms, -ologies or (goodness) even the -tyledons. I prefer to consider the seed a hope, a dream, a miracle. When carefully considered breeding is planned, the most glorious varieties of sustenance to gut and glory to the palate are achieved.

What instantly springs to mind combining the best of both Art and Farming are tomatoes. Specifically the Green Zebra created by Tom Wagner in the early ’80s. If one is a “foodie” of any level, the introduction of this open-pollinated cultivar cannot be discounted. Sought by home chefs and professionals alike, the Green Zebra entered into main stream culture at local markets and fine retailers such as Whole Foods. With its arrival, the populace realized that tomatoes could be more than red-globular-cardboard cut outs picked unripe, gassed and shipped to the masses at market to be sliced into rigid forms draped across insipid greens and deemed a “dinner salad”.

Wisconsin weather modification program

Wisconsin Reports
 
 Yesterday I finally received a response to my open records request to the Department of Ag Trade and Consumer Protection for “All licenses, permits, records, reports and notices of exempt operations pursuant to State statute § 93.35 and ATCP 54.06 regarding weather modification.”

  The response from Brian D. Kuhn was “We have no records of anyone ever having applied for a license or permit related to weather modification, nor have we any notices of exempt operations pursuant to statute §93.35 and ATCP 54.06.”   Interesting that the response took over a month before I received it, which raises questions the greater concern is that despite the extensive private and governmental record requirements impose by statute none exist in the history of the statute.  With the advent of the documentary “What in the World are They Spraying” a reasonable person would expect that an agency charged with consumer protection would be enforcing these statutes.

  DATCP’s track record for this type of protection is woefully inadequate, despite thousands of complaints only few are investigated and none are prosecuted.  Unless the complaint is generated by DATCP officials in order to obtain warrants to raid farms.  An act itself in violation of statute as all complaints must issue from a consumer inclusively.

  But living up to the letter of the law isn’t DATCP’s forte,   in fact in yet another open records request it came to light that Randy Romanski, the recently appointed Secretary is operating under color of office, having never taken his oath of office and recording said oath with the Secretary of State. 

    § 17.03 Vacancies, how caused. Except as otherwise provided, a public office is vacant when:

(7) A person elected or appointed or reelected or reappointed to any office neglects or refuses to take and file the official oath or to execute or renew the official bond if required, or to file the oath or bond as prescribed by law.
 Don’t get your hopes up, seems as though the black robe society has ruled that because the legislature provided no penalty provisions in the statute that anyone failing to file an oath or bond can continue in that position until successfully challenged and convicted in a court, and that all acts done in this dejure/defacto status are valid. .  How about plugging in a class I felony for failure to perform a ministerial duty?

 Interesting note is that there were no penalty provisions in the Premises Registration statute either.
  When DATCP can’t get what it wants directly they send in USDA APHIS to conduct night raids and interrogations of farmers, coercing farmers into signing affidavits, without counsel present, agreeing to answer questions regarding their farming activities.  Interesting coincidence that the raids initiated on the same day the USDA announced its appointments to citizens group for animal identification.  A reward for services rendered no doubt.
 
  This is the first of a three part series delving into the goings on here in wisconSIN. Next will be the states persecution of yours truly and the final segment as to the proposed remedy by Governor elect Walker.

New Year’s Re-Solutions For Non-violent Rebellion

“Be the change you wish to see in the world” – Gandhi

As the United States edges closer to becoming a third world country; anger, frustration, and cynicism continue to mount in the minds of the American population.  In fact, a recent Pew Research poll showed that 80% of baby boomers are pessimistic about America’s future.  This pessimism seems warranted as authentic political solutions appear to be in short supply in our corporate state.

The democratic political system is now clearly run by crony cartelism.  The multinational banks have hijacked the economy and are openly looting the public. Mounting and impossible-to-pay off debt is crippling local governments. The entire spectrum of our rights continues to degrade. Crimes that would land regular citizens in jail are now openly being committed by the elite and their organizations with no justice. And perhaps most telling, the power structure, is establishing a control grid to eliminate due process for the Internet and beyond to stifle any dissent. More

One more time: A citizens ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ #1(MOU) with the Federal Government

Greetings:

Consider this a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to all members of the Senate, all members of the House, and to President Obama.  I am sure you are fully aware of the intent and implications of MOUs, as each of you, in one way or another, uses them to establish the outlining of agreements between yourselves, collectively or individually, concerning the agreements you have made with individuals acting as state’s representatives or agencies; generally to avoid Constitutional prohibitions on your intended actions and in avoidance of the Constitution.  I am using it in quite another fashion as you will see in the following text.

Prisoners of the system: Corporate organized crime runs the system of human trafficking for profit

 The five southeastern states of the US, long known for their corruption within the so-called justice system, are notorious for gaming the system.  Backwoods lawyers, Billy-Bob judges and Boss Hog type law enforcement personnel are all too common.  After all, these are just human beings; who cares?  As long as there is money to be made, there seems to be no shortage of individuals willing to profit from what has become nothing short of human trafficking for profits.

_________________________

Finding reasons to put people in prisons has become big business in the US.  Beginning in the 1980’s, prisons began privatizing for profit, making that profit off the forced labor of prisoners who saw not one dime in return for their labor.  John Ashcroft helped along the prisoner-for-profit program by handing down mandated prison term guidelines.  The so-called justice system dutifully complied with federal mandates as money, and lots of it, began to flow from the exaggerated prison sentences.  Wall Street began selling bonds on the labor of prisoners and the number of prisoners to foreign countries; bonds that were based on the length of time they could be guaranteed that prisoners would be held.  More

Are you Domesticated? “Travel-trained: Americans take security with sigh”

The latest all-propaganda piece to come out this week from the AP highlights the “sighing American.” You know the one — barely awake enough to see tyranny right under their nose (or feel it in their pants).

And it is all quite funny, you see, as the unusually long AP article compiled by a whole team of reporters opens with the threat of “explosive snow globes,” to illustrate the aw-shucks component to how wild and crazy air travel has become.  Luckily for the authorities, the 16-year-old potential terrorist holding the snow globe in question “bit her tongue and obeyed.”

Thanks to “Dirty Harry” Reid: An overt act of betrayal by both Houses of Congress

32 Comments

Marti Oakley (c)copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved

____________________________________________

The last two weeks have seen some of the most unethical, deceptive, manipulative and outright traitorous actions by both the House and the Senate.  With “Dirty Harry” Reid (D) NV leading the traitors charge, every rule was broken, every trick was used, every deception was employed to force the passage of S.510 against the will of the people, most of whom recognized this hostile takeover of agriculture for what it was. 

________________________________________________

Well!  Just in time for the rigged “vote” on the fake food safety bills in the House and Senate, CBS news claimed that terrorists…..in a place far, far away….were planning to poison food in hotels and restaurants in the United States.

(CBS)  In this exclusive story, CBS News chief investigative correspondent Armen Keteyian reports the latest terror attack to America involves the possible use of poisons – simultaneous attacks targeting hotels and restaurants at many locations over a single weekend.

A key Intelligence source has confirmed the threat as “credible.” Department of Homeland Security officials, along with members of the Department of Agriculture and the FDA, have briefed a small group of corporate security officers from the hotel and restaurant industries about it. 

Most likely if any terrorists had been planning on poisoning the food in hotels and restaurants, their rooms would be paid for by Homeland Security or FDA/USDA.  Its highly unlikely and very improbable that any such threat ever existed. 

A key intelligence source was most likely the agent who called CBS news to get their co-operation in planting this story just prior to the last ditch effort to pass the unconstitutional assault on food production and supply, S.510.  Leave it to Lame Stream Media to do their part in “crisis creation”.  Works every time.  Just prior to every rights robbing assault on America, the media joins with “intelligence sources” to float some bogus report meant to scare us into compliance. The FDA and USDA jumped into the fray to flex their newly empowered over-reaching, unlawful authority.

Joe Lieberman, MEK Murder in Iran, and the Mythology of a Righteous Almighty America

Live Link: Mark Danof’s America

Excerpted:

“The reason is as morally, theologically, and politically warped as it is transparently clear.  Dispensational premillennial eschatology, trans-national multinationals and central bankers, and black-operational state intelligence agencies, are now inexorably wedded to one another in the coalescence of the components of the New World Order.  The unfolding results are disastrous for both the United States and the planet.

     Nowhere is this unfolding disaster more tragically apparent than in Iran, where the December 20th Newsweek cover story all but concedes the American and Israeli intelligence community’s link to the recent assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists in Tehran, and the concurrent bombings in Diyala and Chabahar provinces in that country.  These recent premeditated murders, along with atrocities past in Iranian Azerbaijan, Khuzestan, and Balochistan, are all chiefly the on-site work of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), with occasional assists from the Kurdish PKK and Jundallah organizations.”  Read More here

FCC passed new rules — written by corporations — that will end Net Neutrality

8 Comments

BREAKING: Minutes ago, the FCC passed new rules — written by corporations — that will end Net Neutrality.
For the first time in history, the U.S. government approved corporate censorship of the Internet, putting the future of online free speech at risk. Unbelievably, the person leading the charge was Obama appointee Julius Genachowski.
This violates President Obama’s campaign promise to protect Net Neutrality, but some media are reporting the corporate spin that this is a “Net Neutrality compromise.” It’s not — there’s no such thing as half a First Amendment. We need to set the record straight.
If you’re on Facebook, click here to spread the word.
By sharing, you can help us spread the top 3 reasons the rules passed today are a giveaway to big corporations and break Obama’s promise:
  1. They enshrine different rules for wired and wireless Internet — allowing big corporations to censor on your mobile phone
  2. They allow corporations to set up tollbooths online, stifling new innovators like the next YouTube who can’t pay the fees the old, crusty corporations can pay
  3. For the first time, they embrace a “public Internet” for regular people vs. a “private Internet” with all the new innovations for corporations who pay more — ending the Internet as we know it
A more detailed explanation is here. Please pass this email to your friends so they know not to believe the corporate spin.
Thanks for being a bold progressive,

Reid’s Back-Alley Tactics Revive Omnibus Land Bill

2 Comments

    By Fred Kelly Grant | December 21, 2010

As a result of Senator Harry Reids back-alley tactics, both the Food Safety Bill and the Omnibus Public land and water bills are headed for passage by the entire Congress.  The Food Safety Bill was passed by unanimous consent as a substitute for an already passed House bill.  The Omnibus Public Lands and Water bill is headed for passage as “America’s Great Outdoors Act” also as a substitute.

The public lands bill was furtively put into action on the floor of the Senate by Reid late Sunday evening near the end of an unusual Sunday session designed for debate on the Arms treaty. The Bill which pundits said could not and would not be considered in the lame duck session could be voted on this week, or even the week after Christmas.  Reid has threatened that the Senate will stay in session until January 5, 2011 if necessary to get this package and others passed.

Harry Reid’s latest assault on America: The land theft act

1 Comment

By Dan Byfield | December 21, 2010 Call Your Senators Today!

This means additional wilderness, wild and scenic rivers and trails designations, the expansion of EPA authority to control ocean beaches through regulations that will adversely affect all farms and ranches, and multiple land transfers, among other significant negative implications for America.

_____________________________________________

As feared by everyone, the U.S. Senate and Harry Reid are bringing those the CLEAR Act, fears to fruition and are set to destroy America’s future by taking all the private property they can with one bill, unless we act this week! It used to be called the CLEAR (Consolidated Land, Energy, and Aquatic Resources) Act of 2010, but Mr. Reid pulled a legislative trick and substituted the CLEAR Act for a completely unrelated, bill S. 303, and now calls it the “America’s Great Outdoors Bill of 2010.” More
