“Corn plants genetically modified (GM) to produce pesticides in their tissues are contaminating water supplies across the US Midwest, according to a study conducted by researchers from the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
The study was conducted on corn engineered to carry a gene from the Bacillus thuriengensis (Bt) bacteria that produces an insecticidal protein, Cry1Ab. The researchers tested 217 Indiana streams for traces of Cry1Ab, and pesticide the chemical in 13 percent of them. Every contaminated stream was within 500 meters (1,600 feet) of a corn field.”
“It’s barely 48 hours after the fatal shooting of federal judge John Roll and the wounding of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and the assaults on Free Speech are already underway. Congressman Robert Brady from Pennsylvania has announced he will introduce a bill that would criminalize the use of “symbols” or “language” that any federal official interprets as being threatening or inciting violence.
Where do these geniuses come from? Seriously? First off, the shooter in Tucson never used threatening symbols or language against Judge Roll or Congresswoman Giffords. Does Robert Brady think assassins are going to hold up large signs that depict acts of violence minutes before they strike? “Here, read my symbols before I shoot you!” It’s absurd.”
“As I watched hour after hour of coverage about the ambush and assassination attempt on a Congresswoman from Arizona, I couldn’t help but think this could be the spark for something bigger. There were almost immediate reactions from the MSM that this murder was instigated by the Tea Party. The liberal ideologue Paul Krugman blamed the Republican Party for the murders. Apoplectic left wing faux journalist Keith Olbermann described conservative commentators as those ”who have so irresponsibly brought us to this time of domestic terrorism”. The local sheriff, an Arizona State Senator and the Congresswoman’s father all blamed the Tea Party, either directly or indirectly. Based on my reading of the murderer’s writings and youtubes, he appears to be a mentally deranged psycho. Somehow, every liberal MSM “journalist” has concluded that this was due to the contentious political atmosphere in the country. This is code for “we need less dissent”. Stop disagreeing with the Obama agenda. If you disagree, you are dangerous.”
“”The prior Fourth Turnings in U.S. history (American Revolution, Civil War, Great Depression/World War II) all proved to be secular upheavals of immense proportions, tore apart the existing civil order, but had numerous moments of danger and uncertainty about the future turn of events. We are six years into a twenty year Crisis saeculum. Every Crisis intensifies as time progresses to an ultimate crescendo. The initial financial crisis built to a dramatic peak in September 2008 as the government and Federal Reserve have taken extraordinary and immoral actions to protect Wall Street banks. Since September 11, 2001, the government has used fear as its primary means of controlling the American population. Fear of terrorists, fear of flying, fear of WMD, fear of mushroom clouds, fear of the axis of evil, fear of economic collapse, fear of a Great Depression, and now fear of the Tea Party movement. This attack by a crazy man will lead to further losses of liberties and freedoms. That is a certainty.”"
“It was only a matter of time before the Gabrielle Giffords tragedy was turned into a rationale for the government to take more of our freedoms. This is how our government always responds to tragedy–it’s almost formulaic:
* Step 1 – wait for tragedy to occur, or actually create the tragedy.
* Step 2 – spread propaganda through the media, so everyone believes your story about the tragedy
* Step 3 – pass laws, or institute policies, that take away people’s freedoms.
* Step 4 – justify the increased Tyranny by citing the propaganda in step 2.”
“Here are several examples of fairly benign sentences that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official:
* Gee, someone has to do something about our government. They are out of control.
By “do something” does he mean “shoot people” or “revolt”???
* That politician is greatly harming America, and something should be done.
What does he mean by “something should be done”??? Sounds like a rebel yell to me.
* “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants” – Thomas Jefferson
Did he say BLOOD??? Oh my god, he is calling for violence!!!
* “Concerted power has always been the enemy of liberty” – Ronald Reagan
Oh my god, he is saying that a big government is the ENEMY…this means we should attack them!!!
* “If they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun” – Barack Obama
Obama just said to use guns against political opposition!!!! I heard it!!!!“
“The children’s flu vaccine does contain mercury. The children’s flu vaccine does contain mercury. The children’s flu vaccine does contain mercury. Mercury is an exceptionally strong neurological poison. Mercury is an exceptionally strong neurological poison. Mercury is an exceptionally strong neurological poison. These repetitions are directed toward doctors and medical officials who have a hard time with reading comprehension and still insist there is no evidence of harm from vaccines containing thimerosal, which is 50 percent mercury by weight.”
“Dr. Richard Halvorsen, author of the book, The Truth About Vaccines, said: “Thimerosal is an extremely toxic substance and a known poison to the brain. There is enough convincing evidence linking thimerosal with developmental disorders and learning problems in individual children to warrant its removal from any childhood vaccine.” Of course these same reading-handicapped officials and doctors don’t even listen to other doctors who have a better grasp of the real science and chemistry of mercury.”
“Today, along with the last few days, we have seen The Left once again launch an assault on The Second Amendment, claiming that “we must have reasonable gun control!” – which they, of course, define as some sort of strict registration and “control” procedure for who can own a firearm, how many firearms one can own, whether said firearms “look scary”, how much ammunition (and of what type) someone can own, and similar things.
There seems to be a common misapprehension – perhaps an intentionally-fostered one – about why The Second Amendment exists.
That this sort of misapprehension exists puzzles me. Certainly, if you’re a US Citizen, you’ve read The Declaration of Independence, right?”
14 Eye Opening Statistics Which Reveal Just How Dramatically The U.S. Economy Has Collapsed Since 2007
“Most Americans have become so accustomed to the “new normal” of continual economic decline that they don’t even remember how good things were just a few short years ago. Back in 2007, unemployment was very low, good jobs were much easier to get, far fewer Americans were living in poverty or enrolled in welfare programs and government finances were in much better shape. Of course most of this prosperity was fueled by massive amounts of debt, but at least times were better. Unfortunately, things have really deteriorated over the last several years. Since 2007, unemployment has skyrocketed, foreclosures have set new all-time records, personal bankruptcies have soared and U.S. government debt has gotten completely and totally out of control. Poll after poll has shown that Americans are now far less optimistic about the future than they were in 2007. It is almost as if the past few years have literally sucked the hope out of millions upon millions of Americans.”
“Figures recently released by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) index of 55 food commodities indicates that worldwide food prices hit a record high in December. Though the costs of some food commodities like rice, corn and soy actually decreased, oil seeds and sugar jumped significantly due to various factors including erratic weather and droughts, according to reports.
In the past, such ups and downs on the commodity market did not immediately affect actual food costs for consumers, but some experts say that this is no longer the case, and that “food inflation” will occur right alongside the commodity price gains. And rapid food inflation has already taken place in India, for example, with recent reports indicating that the country experienced an overall food inflation rate of 18 percent in 2010.”
