About Me

I joined DU following the election melt down that produced the second George the Lesser Term of Office. I am outraged by war, by out-sourcing of jobs, by Corporate control of both parties, and enheartened by my fellow citizens who are bravely part of "Occupy!"

I really didn't do anything (honest!) but then...

I was scrolling through a topic, while waiting for the last batch of double chocolate chip cookies to bake, and then beneath the DU replies, a pink screen appeared, and I saw that I had somehow "alerted" on what I was reading?

How did I do this? I don't remember hitting any thing. And the reading was rather mindless - just a discussion about someone else's family. No one on the topic was mis-behaving.

Now I am wondering - how did it happen? What combo of keys would result in all that?

Monsanto simply buys up a bee research institute:

Now that is one way to see to it that they won't be blamed for bees dying off. Silly activists - food is for profit, and bees aren't needed!
<according to Monsanto's viewpoint>

Germane to the discussion of what Monsanto is doing is this tidbit -

Monsanto along with the other Big Agri Concerns, has been buying up companies that hold seed banks. For instance, back in the late nineties, or early 2000's, Hartz Mountain was bought up by one of these firms. The firm's seed bank was then immediately incinerated!

A hundred years of seed cultivation and cataloguing and holding on to valuable heirloom seeds for future generations was vaporized as that happened.

Maybe I need to explain this to you -

people buying organic produce are not eating Bt as it is sprayed on the veggies. When people buy organic veggies that have the Bt as part of their growth - the Bt is sprayed at a particular time in the growing season. In many places in the nation, the Bt is no longer there at all due to rain. In places like California, the Bt is not there as we wash it off the produce before eating it.

When it is used inside the plant, due to the genetic modification of the plant, we have to eat it. Period. In other words,. your explanation is FALSE!

Also and this information is just coming out in the mainstream (lamestream) media, over the past 18 months, the work of indie researchers like Don Huber are demonstrating that the fusarium and other nasty fungi and bacterial growths on the plants are increasing exponentially on the GM crops.

If a farmer brings his crop to market and it is analyzed and found to contain more than a certain percent fusarium, the farmer is going to take a much smaller price for that crop. And this is happening more and more often.

Many of us no longer can even eat the major grain crops of our bread basket states. For instance, I cannot eat wheat - my body simply no longer tolerates it. The aldehydes necessary to keep the product RoundUp as an aerosol spray (without aldehydes in the mix, RoundUp would remain, due to its high glyphosate content, as a cake, not as a spray) are so overwhelmingly present in the content of the resulting "foods" that other nations do not want our wheat, our corn, or our rice.

France has the reputation of having the most fiercely independent researchers examining the full effects of the GM foods, and of the lost nutrients, the contamination due to the mold fungi and bacteria, - especially those researchers At University of Caen France. You would do well to google "University of Caen" + "Gm foods" plus "impact on organs."

The RoundUp ready crap you' re eating today are slamming you liver, spleen kidneys and other organs in most unhealthy ways!

It is hard for Monsanto to slam Don Huber with being inaccurate, as they relied on this man's science for so many years.

A decent discussion of why folks like vinyl, plus

This makes me furious:

All over America, people have to decide to rent cars and drive places, as they don't want to end up like this traveler ended up:

What is with our nation that we the sheeple refuse to see to it that we are protected from these agents?

What do we have to do?

Where are the candidates who once in office will see to it that we don't have TSA molest babies in diapers, grab granmas by their breasts and hassle cancer survivors till their clothes are covered in their urine.

Who is out there that is against this? Do I have to hope that Jesse Ventura will run for office so We the People get habeus corpus back soon? Who is going to tackle this problem?

You totally ignored what for me was the main point of the

my remarks and went out on your own tangent.

The police or border crossing official wanted to know the particular name of a particular store. Otherwise he was going to put this couple into the "box" that they were possible terrorists.

Isn't this ridiculous? I mean, stop for one minute and think about it... How does it make us safer - that the border patrol is now mainly concerned with the attitudes of people crossing the border.

If they discover someone to be a free spirit -why detain the fuck out of them. Meanwhile the real terrorists are walking the required walk and talking the required talk. If they were terrorists, you better beleive they would have an answer. The fact that the man didn't have a name of a a store means they were just casual tourists. If they were terrorists, they would have had a complete and totally accountable profile of what their visit entailed.

What this shows me is that we have gone from a nation of common sense, to a nation where these bureaucrats can detain us on account of not fitting into the very narrow margins of their training manual examples. Detention should be employed only in the most extreme cases, but as this video shows, it is now routine to hassle regular people.

I used to visit relatives who lived six miles short of the Canadian border, and we went back and forth over the border a dozen time sin two weeks. Never any hassle. But the war on drugs,which let's admit it, is a phony setup, that causes the young and those of color to end up jailed for very little, while those most guilty are sent here from south of the border, cleaned up and then become the owners of banks, so their illustrious drug cartel parents can launder money.

And the war on terror is basically phoney too.

You can avoid discussing what I am discussing and make your points, which are not invalid of themselves, but which are invalid in terms of what I am talking about. Hit reply to the main OP and not these remarks of mine

And on the issue of pot - he needs to not just state that

after re-election he will do This or that --

HE NEEDS TO DIRECT HOLDER TO Re-SCHEDULE MARIJUANA IMMEDIATELY!

Yesterday the Supreme Court endorsed the California medical marijuana laws. So both the people and the Judiciary have spoken!! Why won't the President support HIS BASE!

Wouldn't it be great if the usual suspects who use

Nothing but the non-thinking person's ad hominem style of attacks in their responses could have their posts purged by the fact that said responses were lacking thought and fell into the ad hominen category.

I don't just want a pony - I want an ad hominem attack fairy who magically deletes said person's attacks. Ignore comes close, and has to do it for me for the current time period.

Of course, it could be that the usual suspects don't even realize that such "logic" they possess is an ad hominem attack. So to clear that up, here is a definition:



Translated from Latin to English, "Ad Hominem" means "against the man" or "against the person."

An Ad Hominem is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument. Typically, this fallacy involves two steps. First, an attack against the character of person making the claim, her circumstances, or her actions is made (or the character, circumstances, or actions of the person reporting the claim). Second, this attack is taken to be evidence against the claim or argument the person in question is making (or presenting). This type of "argument" has the following form:

Person A makes claim X.
Person B makes an attack on person A.
Therefore A's claim is false.

The reason why an Ad Hominem (of any kind) is a fallacy is that the character, circumstances, or actions of a person do not (in most cases) have a bearing on the truth or falsity of the claim being made (or the quality of the argument being made).

Calif. Public Utilities Commission brings it to the plate -

As of April 27th. the CPUC is issuing guidelines that favor the customers in Southern Calif and San Diego.

Smart meters are understood by activists to contain the same type of radio frequency radiation that Dr Neil Cherry spent so much of his life trying to warn us about.

From the URL and website listed below:

http://stopsmartmetersirvine.com/2012/04/19/free-at-last-cpuc-approves-smart-meter-opt-out-for-sce-and-sdge-dr-neil-cherry-rfs-effect-on-neurotransmitters-public-space-increasingly-irradiated/

However, there are too many studies, including WHO’s designation of it as a carcinogen, which show (even as it becomes so ubiquitous in our society) that radio frequency electromagnetic radiation may have adverse health effects.

As the late Dr. Neil Cherry has said in a radio interview “Our brain is an electromagnetic organ. [In] our central nervous system, every cell communicates with its neighbors to see how they are by using electromagnetic signals.” One effect RF electromagnetic radiation can have is to disrupt the calcium ions in our brains. Says Dr. Cherry “calcium ions control the neurotransmitters in the brain. . . If you expose the brain to these frequencies-you alter the calcium ions–you alter the brain patterns."

That’s what Ross Adey in California showed; repeated by the EPA; Carl Blackman; and it’s been repeated in about 10 or 12 laboratories in the world–that calcium ions are changed by these signals. That’s pretty well established. Frequencies match and cells react and change the behavior which changes the brain pattern, the reaction time.”

I was fortunate to spend most of one day with Dr Cherry back in the early nineties. He had come to San Francisco to help activists there complain about the installation of new cell phone antennae in their neighborhoods. At that point in time, the cell phone industry spokespeople were telling the public: The only thing this radiation can do is cause brain tumors. Which are usually benign, and so nothing to really worry about." (I have no idea why they said this out loud, but they did. The industry has finally wised up - they will no longer admit to the RF electro magnetic radiation and brain tumor connection.)

So one activist took to the mike at the community informational meeting. She explained that her living so close to the Tower was the cause of her illness. And yes, her brain tumor was benign, but it had affected her speech. Then while she was on the operating table having said tumor removed, she had a heart attack.
