I've had to deal with an inordinate amount of pain, but I feel the need to reach out to you today, dear readers. We've had a number of disturbing occurrences, and they require our attention.
First off - the Sierra Club has announced that last year, we lost 44% of bee colonies, due to neonicotinoids. They ask that we all contact our representatives and request...no, DEMAND, that they pass the Saving America's Pollinators Act. Click the preceding link to obtain further information.
Monsanto has created the dreaded FrankenWeed.
I've mentioned the Hagmann and Hagmann Report - here's a link to their latest episode...and yes, it involves the decision by FBI Director James Comey to not indict presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton, among other things.
Speaking of that ill-advised decision - I've made this point before, but I think it bears repeating:
You like in a multiple dwelling. It doesn't have to be an apartment building, but someplace where your doors are adjacent to each other. You work in the morning, and you come home, take care of things and retire for the next day of work.
Your neighbor parties all day and all night. You've never seen them leave to go to work; of course, it's none of your business.
One morning, you happen to wake up early, and, being so close to the time you need to arise, you just start getting ready early. You leave a bit earlier than you usually do, and when you step out of your door, you see the weirdest thing.
There is a huge stack of bills in front of your neighbor's door.
Well, it doesn't belong to you, so you leave...but the thought nags at you all day.
You arrive at home, and you try to put the thought out of your mind. You can't - the thought eats at you all night, and once again, you wake up early.
This time, the first thing you do is to check for the aforementioned money.
Just like before, there is a stack of money in front of your neighbor's door.
This time, you grab about a third of the stack, and then you return to your apartment, and get ready for work.
Of course, now you're dreading the inevitable phone call.
It never comes.
The whole way home, you're imagining the note that you know will be left upon your door.
You arrive home...and there is no note.
You open your door...no envelope. No voicemail. Nothing.
You breathe a sigh of relief.
You eventually go to sleep...and now you wake up early with a purpose.
This time, you go to the neighbor's door, and you take half of the money.
The next day, you do it again.
The following day...and so on, and so on...
The neighbor never says a bad word to you; never shoots you accusing looks; it seems that they are totally oblivious as to your theft.
If you can steal this money, without repercussion...why would you STOP?!?When you allow criminals to escape punishment, you embolden them to commit further crimes.
If you want to see a non-violent example of this, this weekend, watch Inside Job, Margin Call and The Big Short. It seems the only people to ever be indicted were:
- Ivan Boesky (who parked money with his ex-wife; once he finished his sentence, he sued her for the funds, citing, "he can't live as a poor man". He got those funds, IIRC);
- Michael Milken
- Bernard Madoff
- Martha Stewart (and that was a SCAM from beginning to end)
The murder of JFK and the inaction that followed set the stage for the murders of RFK (which had been captured on film by Jamie Scott Enyart, performed by Thane Eugene Caesar), MLK (the shirt Jesse Jackson had on was dabbled in chicken blood!) and Malcolm X, among others.
The FBI doesn't get to forego investigations because of "lack of intent". Director Comey admitted that numerous crimes were committed, regardless of "intent":
Here's the full statement on YouTube.
The DARK Act is still being disguised - the OCA requests that you call 888-897-0174 and tell your representatives to oppose Sen. Stabenow's attempt to pass the DARK Act under a pretense. Dr. Ted Broer and his son Austin (still praying for you, brother!) mentioned on their show that this bill would block the recently passed law in Vermont that now mandates labeling GMO foods; in fact, not only would this bill allow for 50% of GMOs in foods to not be labeled as such, it would also not label GMOs in meat at all!
You can also call 202-224-3121.
Please call; tell your friends; avoid half-steppers such as Whole Foods.
Your wallet has a voice - YOURS.
