Three Activists against the banks, from the Thrive movement

I see that the video they put out over a year ago had some threads, but I didn't see this new article: http://www.thrivemovement.com/bold-actiivists-reveal-strategies-for-fighting-home-foreclosures-and-balancing-government-budget.blog

(I can't say I support the third guy, but I'm not in that position either.) I feel inspired by the actions of the first two.

Yes on California Prop 37

Listening to 'Your Own Health and Fitness' on KPFA.org today I learned of this movie "Genetic Roulette." See: http://responsibletechnology.org/

"Are you and your family on the wrong side of a bet?

When the US government ignored repeated warnings by its own scientists and allowed untested genetically modified (GM) crops into our environment and food supply, it was a gamble of unprecedented proportions. The health of all living things and all future generations were put at risk by an infant technology.

After two decades, physicians and scientists have uncovered a grave trend. The same serious health problems found in lab animals, livestock, and pets that have been fed GM foods are now on the rise in the US population. And when people and animals stop eating genetically modified organisms (GMOs), their health improves."

They are genetically engineering the American Chestnut...

The American Chestnut Foundation has been working for years to breed blight resistance into the American Chestnut by crossing and back crossing Asian breeds. (Japanese, Chinese and Korean varieties.) This article isn't the best (96 and 6 are not 100) and disturbs me about GM work.
