What Happened On Wall Street Today

There was a major sell-off on Wall Street today, with the market losing 2.3%, more than it’s lost on a single day since 2011. Why? Evidently the investment crowd is panicking because Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke indicated that soon, if the economy continues to improve, the Fed will quit printing new money willy-nilly for them to use to buy bonds in order to continue to stimulate the economy. In other words, they’re threatening to quit feeding the trolls. Let me translate this for the hard-of-thinking. […]

What Our Government Won’t Do For Monsanto

Editor’s note: We just found this write-up linking to this video on Facebook. This doesn’t surprise us, of course. Monsanto seems to own our government now. That’s the only thing that would explain how our government employees seem to work for Monsanto. Those of us who lived through the 1960s understand clearly that our government was never ours. Now, our government isn’t even pretending to be. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqXCboEL-7k An Illinois beekeeper who spent the last 15 years researching the effects of Monsanto‚Äôs Roundup on bees, and compiling extensive evidence documenting that […]

Monsanto: Maker of the Rules

Percy Schmeiser Many of you already have a pretty good idea to what ends Monsanto will go to spread their poisonous genetically modified crops. The company is playing hardball and they plan to win at any cost. Unless we bring them down soon, they’ll pose a larger threat to human life than global warming, world overpopulation and all forms of pollution combined. What Monsanto wants is nothing short of complete control of agribusiness on a global scale, through their patented genetically modified seeds combined with their chemical herbicides and pesticides. […]

Monsanto: Yet Another Lie

We’re being lied to all the time and have been for at least all my life. Most of these lies are harmful to us. The fact that we accept them, knowing them to be lies, hurts us even more. This morning I ran across another of those graphics that makes a political statement on Facebook. This one contained a quote by Ronnie Cummins with the Organic Consumers Association that said: “GMOs aren’t meant to feed the world… they’re designed to sell Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup.” […]

Nowhere To Hide From Industrial Pollutants

Back when I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s we knew about pollution, we just didn’t yet understand how pervasive it was. In those days, it was thought that the only thing needed to escape the ravages of industrial pollution was to get out into the countryside, away from bad city air and water. Smog and polluted water were seen as urban problems that didn’t exist in the country. Soil pollution wasn’t even on the radar yet for most of us. httpv://youtu.be/Rj6UlN6nhYQ We now know that there is […]

It’s Time For A Monsanto Movie Party

It never fails. Every time we post on our Facebook page about the danger posed by Monsanto and their GMO products, we’re inundated by some right wingers who’re trying to pretend to be “reasonable” calling for more specific information. Their argument is that we need to be diligent when it comes to GMOs, but that the scientific evidence is that most of Monsanto’s genetically engineered products are perfectly safe and that the company is hard at work assuring that their products do no damage, either to the health of the […]

Obama and the Supremes

I can’t try to play to the middle anymore, because the middle is downright confused. All I can do is tell the truth as I see it; I can assure you that will usually be far from the middle. Or will it? Do we really see the middle? Most of the people I know think a lot like me, we share a wavelength even though we’re on different channels. We support Obama, kind-of-sort-of. We believe in offering our neighbors a helping hand when they need it, and think that would […]
