The Koch Brother’s Karma

For the past few days, chicken and what evil may be lurking in it, has been on the news here quite a bit.

Can you guess who owns the producers of these chicken products that are being recalled?

That would be the Koch Brothers, et al.

Food safety should be everyone’s top priority in this and every Country and selling and/or eating contaminated food is just crazy, when the whole world is totally wired and connected right now.

This was not the Koch Brother’s first brush with either bad food, or trouble at their Plants, as they have had issues several times in the past few years, links to these stories are below.

One of the stories that came up while looking for more about this chicken recall, was not about a recall at all, but about a raid on one of the Koch Plants.

It seems that a few years ago, an Ohio plant was raided and 160 illegal immigrants were taken into custody by ICE or the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

This same Plant had been under surveillance for two years by their agents before the raid.

I am not quite sure, but don’t the Koch Brother’s belong to and give quite generous financial support to a political party that is highly opposed to any/all illegal immigrants in this country?

Oops~

But for now, if you have any of the above mentioned products in your freezer, please protect yourself and your family, dispose of them properly, or follow the directions at the USDA website.

Also listed below is a link to the USDA for Recalls, it would be good for you to check it as often as possible.

I have always been a great believer in Karma, but in the case of the Koch Brothers, I fear that they may outlive us all and never meet theirs.

Off My Menu!

I first saw this story in my mail a few days ago and because it was so very ugly and pointed accusing fingers at one of my all time favorite places to get a pecan waffle, I put it aside.

But after mulling over this information for several sleepless nights, I decided that sharing it was absolutely necessary.

The report/story from AlterNet, is the first one in the reference list below.

This most disturbing story was about Waffle House, one of the most prolific breakfast places in America.

They have hundreds of restaurants throughout America, 2,100 of them actually, in 25 states, many of which are in the South were they are headquartered.

This Georgia chain has been around since 1955 and until I saw this story, my only complaint had been their practice of allowing smoking on the premises and the fact that they were not always the cleanest places to eat.

But my love of the perfect pecan waffle overrode my two minor objections, until now.

Now I find myself sickened and disgusted by a place that I will in the future refuse to eat in, unless they have a complete and total makeover starting from the top down.

If even half of the accusations in this searing report are accurate, Waffle House will never get another penny from me as a customer.

As the old saying goes, the head of the snake must be cut off.

Aside from all of the employee abuse complaints and accusations, and lawsuits by women of sexual harassment, I find the news that this Company has such strong ties with a Political Party and a platform that I find personally reprehensible, for its repeated abuses of women in this country, unacceptable.

This Company is sleeping with the enemy in my mind.

So Dear Waffle House, you are no longer on my Menu!

What Do 7 UP, Micro Beads and Lithium All Have in Common?

Toothpaste

They are all things we might not want, if given a choice~

 

Reading my email this morning suddenly became very disturbing.

Several different sources reported things being in our everyday products, that truly do not belong there.

First example: Lithium in 7 UP.

Yes that 7 Up, the one I used to drink as a kid because it was always around when my mom worked there.

What was most frightening, was the follow-up in the story.

It seems that when Lithium is present in drinking water, the rates of suicides decline.

Lithium apparently makes people happier, in safe levels that is, let’s not go nuts here.

I had heard the rumors for years about Coke and Cocaine, but had never heard about this until this morning.

Yikes, is there nothing that has not been altered?

Lithium was commonly used in the Rehab Center where I was a Nurse in California in the treatment of several conditions.

But, how safe was it to put in a drink consumed by millions, including children and pregnant women, without their knowledge?

Not really sure, but am glad they have stopped?

Next shall we talk about your toothpaste?

On the News this week was a story about tiny micro balls or beads now in some in toothpastes, being found in the gums of patients by Dental Hygientists and they are not happy about it.

They are causing numerous problems, like gum disease and infections.

These things are not biodegradable and stick around practically forever, it seems.

Not just in our bodies, but in our Environment as well.

Water supplies and aquatic life are the primary concern.

The beads have already been banned in Illinois.

Bans are already in place, or are pending, to keep our water safe from them.

New York will be next.

This is all not good!

If like me, you are a label reader for self-protection, in the case of toothpaste, this won’t work.

These sneaky Companies put the ingredients on the BOX, which of course we all throw away and not on the actual tube.

Not very nice!

Now the whole world knows about all of this and the Companies are bragging that it will be fixed by March of 2016.

Hello?

These little balls or beads are causing trouble and they need to go now Proctor & Gamble, Colgate, et., al…

For many years I used AIM because I liked the gel better than a yucky white paste.

But about 10 years ago I switched to Colgate for some reason, think because I had trouble finding AIM.

Then, about a year ago I saw a story on the News about an ingredient Sorbitol,  that I preferred not to have in my toothpaste and went looking once again for AIM.

I found it and switched back.

Remember, the true ingredients are on the BOX.

Today I will be taking a very close look at it to see if the little plastic balls are in it?

Oh and by the way, these same little balls are probably also in your favorite face wash and who knows what else.

We should all start looking at all of our products a lot closer.

As a consumer, I have a question?

Do we have any say in anything anymore?

These Mega Corporations are doing these things without our knowledge or consent.

Their decisions affect our lives and our Environment.

And the only way that we, the paying consumers, ever find out about these deceitful practices and often harmful additives, are when a whistleblower, or savvy investigative writer does a story which is then passed on to the unknowing, innocent dupes.

That would be you and me.

So, now you know what  7 UP, Micro Beads and Lithium all have in common!

Tawdry Trump

Donald_Trump

Donald Trump, speaking at CPAC, February 10, 2011 in Washington D.C.

After watching a film not long ago  called  You’ve been Trumped  about Trump’s vicious and vile treatment of both a people and a place, as he forced a new Golf Course onto a small town in Scotland and the eventual sad outcome, seeing this glaring headline this morning in my mail, made me smile.

Everyone must eventually meet their Karma Donald and yours is about to be served up on a plate so big, that it may make even you choke!

This man, whom I consider the very persona of evil in America, is also the purist definition of a Bully.

And, he has been this way all of his life.

Trump has in the past, gotten his way, by brute force, or any number of other despicable means, nearly 100 % of the time.

But with this latest business failure, and even more  huge job losses, the Trump name may no longer be one many, or hopefully any, want to be associated with in a financial venture.

What Trump and too many Casinos did to Atlantic City is sad.

The once beautiful Boardwalk is now left trying to deal with repeated failing Casinos and hoping to find a way to clean up its now somewhat tarnished image.

Will those casinos still remaining avoid the same fate of those closing and closed, only time will tell if Atlantic City will become a Ghost Town?

The Governor is adamant that all will be fine:

Talks focus on fixing Atlantic City, with a Vegas assist

As you may gather, I have a very low opinion of Casinos and what they do to an area and the people who live there.

My complete  opposition to them, is perfectly matched by Walkingfox,  who watched them destroy both his Mohegan people and their culture in Connecticut with the two biggest Casinos in America.

What bothers most about Trump,  is that in spite of the huge wakes of destruction he usually leaves behind in his failed business deals, somehow, he always seems to land on his feet and come out without a scratch.

He is always able to walk away, to start over again with a new idea and a new group of sucker investors who like Trump, are driven by pure greed and have left their morals back home with their grandmothers.

Now, as always, Trump smiles his artificial smile, and talks his way out of every mess that he gets into and the innocent dupes close to him in any form of business transaction,  are left to deal with what he has done.

But hopefully one day, when Trump’s Karma comes to call, all the world will see this disgusting man for what he truly is:
Tawdry Trump.

Has the King Left the Building?

Burger_King_(1955-1968)

Public Domain Burger King logo

 

I did not want to write about this, ever.

As of right now, I guess I’m still living in denial.

But there it was in my mail this morning, the ugly news that was crystal clear.

Burger King is leaving its home state of over 50 years here in Florida and moving everything to Canada to avoid taxes?

Say it isn’t so, I beg you BK.

Whenever we are out running errands and get hungry, BK is usually my first choice because they have one of my favorite fast food combos, an awesome Veggie Burger accompanied by scrumptious sweet potato fries.

But, if this deal, this merger, does, or has already happened, there goes any hope I might have of finding a Veggie Burger on the run.

We have a few Burger Fi’s starting up here now and they have a nearly Organic Veggie Burger, that is out of this world, but the nearest one is nearly 45 miles away in Winter Park.

Not really convenient when you want a quick Veggie Burger, is it?

So Burger King will now have to be scratched off of my personal quick food out list.

According to the story this morning, this merger announcement has really ……… off their loyal customers, big time.

Burger King was never on the List because they are a favorite place to eat and are a very popular, well-managed and run, not bad fast food place here in Florida.

BK originally started in 1953 in Jacksonville and is now headquartered in the Miami area.

This whole merger story is beginning to smell really stinky.

If this merger is consummated and does go through, these two Corporations will become the third largest food chain in the world.

Yikes, that’s a lot of power.

In the meantime, BK’s 34-year-old CEO Daniel Shwartz, earning a reported $700,000 plus bonuses, says not to worry, that their potential merging with Canada’s Tim Horton’s Donuts, will keep the two companies separate.

Not so fast, is what most of their long and loyal customers think about this.

This may or may not, have been a Corporate containment reaction to the recent ugly public responses, that seems to have caught them off guard with the overwhelming public criticism of their proposed merger.

Some of the hundreds of public comments that have been made, are downright vicious.

Our own Florida Senator Bill Nelson is outright livid about this whole idea, knowing exactly how much Florida has to lose if it happens and said that if it does happen, he wants every single one of their restaurants removed from every Military Base in the United States.

Ouch!

Don’t mess with people and their burgers, even if it’s only a Veggie Burger.

So, Burger King, what’s it going to be, have you really left the building?

Boycott Coke!

Coca-Cola

Picture  credit: Wikipedia

 

An enraging letter/petition was in my email this morning and it has now become the subject of today’s posting.

Coke has been on  The List  since this Blog’s inception and today the impetus for writing about it was delivered conveniently in my email.

Personally I have not drank any soft drinks for many years now, right after I learned what they did/do to our bodies.

I discovered that drinking Diet Coke every day was the source of my migraine headaches.

I stopped drinking it and the migraines were instantly gone.

This was more than twenty years ago.

But today, Coke has a huge family of other products and some of them have been here in our house, for a very long time.

Simply Orange used to be a favorite and just a week ago, I brought home some coconut water after seeing it on the Dr. Oz Show and hearing how good it was for us.

After looking at the lengthy list of Coke products today, it was sad to realize that by my purchase of them, I too was/am empowering Coke to continue its evil plan.

Did I know that Coke and Monsanto were/are sleeping together?

No?

Until just recently, few of us were aware, that these two Giants have been secretly plotting against the World’s consumers.

Neither of them want you, me, any of us, to know that they are spending millions to keep GMO’s in our lives and our bodies.

The truly terrifying thing is that some of these Coke products claim to be Organic.

If they are, why would they support and defend, against the wishes of the very consumers who buy their products, a Corporation like Monsanto, whose primary source of income is the manufacture of GMO’s?

Together these two Mega forces have and are, defeating any hope of legalized opposition through their combined forces, against any bill demanding the labeling of GMO’s anywhere in America that could stop them.

It all borders on complete insanity.

Or, is absolutely brilliant marketing, by two of the most powerful Corporations in the world, who are simply sharing a brain.

Below is a link to a Boycott Coke petition, please do read it and if you agree, please do sign it and share it?

We are only the poor innocent dupes who are funding, by our consistent purchasing, the evil that these two Corporations will continue to inflict upon us, until we stop them, by refusing to buy ANYTHING that either of them makes.

In searching for reference points for this story, it was learned that Pepsi may also be included in this conspiracy.

I will leave them for another day, but it is something to consider in the meantime.

Think of a world without toxins, poisons and chemicals in all of our food.

A wonderful world without unidentified Genetically Modified Organisms.

Think of your children and what this means to their future health and well-being.

Boycott Coke!

The Koch Brothers

Koch Brothers Exposed FB Page

 

I must beg forgiveness for the lapse that kept these two off of  The List.

They will be added later today, as they are once again, in the spotlight that seems to follow their every move.

But I digress, let us begin at the beginning, with these two siblings from a family that came to define the word, dysfunctional family!

It began with the father, Fred, one of the founding members of the John Birch Society, who had four sons, who then made an art out of trying to steal from each other.

Charles and David, the two middle sons of this Dutch Duo, are the ones who remain active in the family business and are two of the most feared and despised of all the world’s Oil Icons.

The Brothers rule over the Koch Industries, which was last said to be in 2012, worth more than $115 Billion and the family owns about 84% of this!

I suppose calling these people ruthless, cunning, devious and driven is probably a compliment.

Their Company, Koch Industries, is called a Conglomerate and they aren’t kidding.

These Brothers, this family, own a little bit of this and a little bit of that and a whole lot of everything and anything to do with the Oil Industry at large.

If it is about Oil, they are in it, own it and control it, period!

The very long list of what they own or control, is so long, in fact, that you will need a snack mid way through, to have the strength to finish.

You could spend days reading about all of this, the name Koch  gives a new meaning to total, absolute control in an Industry and Oil is just the tip of this powerful Duo’s Iceberg.

But, for now, let us discuss just the top, most egregious offenses that they are making.

An odd thought just ran through my mind, as I was writing that sentence.

When they say ” you’re not in Kansas anymore Dorothy, ” they probably mean that if your were, it is already owned by the Koch family!

A wee little point needs to be made first, to demonstrate the Koch tenacity and power, between 1999 and 2003, their Corporation was fined more than $400 million in fines, penalties and judgements.

Understand?

The frequently illegal, questionable, or bordering on criminal practices of this group, sadly brings to mind the often unscrupulous behaviour of some in our very own Government.

Anything and everything is on the table for a price and the desired result that it will bring.

Bear in mind that Papa Koch long ago was driven out of America and forced to do business in Russia.

He found both the Country and the Communists that he had to do business with there, intolerable, claiming the USSR to be,
a land of hunger, misery, and terror. ” –  Wikipedia.

He returned to America and perhaps with a bit of revenge on his mind, never looked back, gobbling up one Company after another on his way to the very top of the Oil Refining business in America.

Not satisfied in being the ruler of that world, the family got into, of course, politics, the media and all that their endless funds could buy for them.

” Between 2006 and 2011 they spent more than $50 million to Lobby in Washington. ”  –  Wikipedia.

And you guessed it, they of course have a PAC,  ” the company funds the political action committee  KochPAC   –  Wikipedia.

There is so much everywhere, about this family, these two brothers, that you could simply spend a lifetime working on it, but for this Blog Posting and on this day, let it just be said, that these two Koch Brothers are the most fearsome, terrifying Brothers that this country is likely to ever see.

Facebook Fears

Facebook Headquarters, Menlo Park, California.

Next on the  LIST:    FACEBOOK.

About three years ago, against my better judgement and at the powerful urging of those who shall remain anonymous, I signed up for an account at Facebook.

What soon followed,  I would not have wished on my worst enemy.

I had huge misgivings going in and had avoided it for years, never trusting it, or the people running it.

Once I signed up, it was only a matter of time before my fears became a reality.

My negative thinking gave way to actual complete loss of any control.

In the beginning, the situation was to be a merry go round of rejections and inabilities to sign in, then it got worse.

I was shut out because I did not have a cell phone number to give them.

The sign in required a cell phone number and you were told to then text back the code that they gave you, to sign in.

It was a nightmare, as there were no actual Human beings to speak with to try to fix the problem.

Hello, we live in the Ocala Forest in Florida and gave our cell phone back after two years of paying for a service, with little or no reception.

Verizon was extremely slow in coming our way, so we finally gave our phone back to them.

Then after weeks of this terror, it was finally, somehow,  resolved.

So, I was now ready to go exploring on Facebook, I thought.

Gleefully unaware of my contentious acts, I then went to places where there were People, and Organizations,  I wanted to meet and/or get to know  and sent them a “Friend Request.”

It was quite quickly made very clear to me, that I was not allowed to “Friend” anyone I did not personally know.

Excuse me, but I was under the misguided impression that joining this disaster, was to meet new people and make new “Friends”

Not so, according to the FB Police.

My punishment for this high crime was to be shut out for a month for being “bad!”

Then after everything seemed to settle down and get comfortable, and I promised to NEVER EVER “Friend”  anyone that I did not personally know,  FB changed some of their  “policies.”

Now it seemed that our pictures and personal information would be viewable to anyone, anywhere, who wanted to see them.

So, I took down anything that I did not want strangers in some distant land to see of my children and relatives.

Next, a scary story  one day on our news was about a local woman who had her FB pictures stolen from her FB site by a creep in another country and they were now being used on porn sites.

By this time, there were quite a few people and Organizations on my Friends list who never, or rarely ever, came to my FB page, or spoke to me, or posted on it.

They were just people who had, over a two-year period, sent me a request and I had said yes to them, if they seemed harmless.

Not knowing what might lurk in the hearts, or minds of these unknowns, left me with no choice, but to completely purge my “Friends List”  down to only a few actual relatives and personal friends.

It was ugly.

At this moment my FB Friends List stands at 30.

But I feel quite confident about every single person on it and that none of them is going to sell my name, or use my pictures for porn.

As FB  has grown over the past ten years, from an insignificant local Harvard web site,  to a Mega Global Multi Billion Dollar Corporation,  one thing has become quite apparent, the object of their very existence is of course, profit or income.

How they acquire their income and what happens to you,  your information and your privacy, in the pursuit of it, is not,  it is clear, one of their priorities.

So, be forewarned, protect what you have there, or you may become  the next victim of Global Hackers and unknown others.

Facebook Fear could become a reality, if you do not.

Seven Annoying Attacks That Facebook

 

Always low prices, but at what cost?

Walmart_store
A now typical Walmart Store
Picture credit: Walmart Corporation

 

For the number one retailer in America and largest Corporation in the  world,   Walmart,  is not really very popular.

Sam Walton  who founded the Company in 1962, had a great theory, buy cheap and sell a lot.

Or to quote Wikipedia:

Walmart founder Sam Walton once said, “I pay low wages. I can take advantage of that. We’re going to be successful, but the basis is a very low-wage, low-benefit model of employment.”

So, then to recap,  this Billionaire’s business plan was to pay his employees as little as possible, with the fewest benefits.

Mr. Walton and his Company, Walmart were very,  very successful at doing this until his death in 1992,  at the age of 74.

When he died, Sam Walton  was worth approximately $23 Billion.

We all know why we go to this store, don’t we, to save money, especially those with fixed or low incomes.

But often as I am driving home after shopping,  I almost feel dirty, for going there.

I have just supported his tyrannical place with my purchase, therefore giving it my approval.

There are so many reasons that we, you and me and millions of us who shop at Walmart, don’t like this Store, or  the Company, or the way that they do business.

The True Cost of Those Low Prices

So here are just a few of the reasons that I have come up with, I know that you will all add your own below:

Unlivable Low Wages for their employees.

Corporation wide failure to promote females.

Deplorable treatment and working Environment for Employees, which in turn causes a high turn over.

Until only recently, a  complete refusal to participate in any form of  charitable donations.

Buying and selling  nearly exclusively with China,  to the detriment of millions of American businesses and workers.

Deliberately putting any and all of their competition out of business, by underpricing them.

Countless Environmental damages adding up to millions at their facilities.

The slave labor, or sweat shops where they buy goods from in other countries.

Annoyingly  Empty shelves, while stock sits on the floor in carts.

Never can find an employee to ask a question.

Opposition to Unions are an ongoing source of conflicts across the world.

Health Care for employees is poor, to non-existent.

Employees being forced to Work off the Clock has been widely charged.

Vengeful firings,  or wrongful terminations, of any who may oppose any company policies.

Hiring and hiding undocumented workers, repeatedly.

More reasons we don’t like Walmart

Walmart’s  history of rejecting any and all merchandise that may offend their  Bible Belt key customer base,” while treating their employees like virtual slaves, this  is not very Christian!

When a Walmart comes to a town,   crime goes up.
(At our Central Florida Walmarts,  there have been many robberies, even murders)

Many Walmart Employees are paid so little, that they actually can be on welfare at the same time.

Walmart’s trade deficit with China has cost over 200,000 American jobs.

Continuously demands the lowest price from their suppliers,  even at the risk of forcing them out of business.

Kraft Foods had to shut down 39 plants and fire over 13,000 employees for this very reason.

 

Have more to add to this list, go for it.

Monsanto, the Mega Monster


Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant
Picture credit: Janine Moraes  http://www.agenciabrasil.gov.br

 

As promised,   Monsanto  will be the first Corporation to be addressed here.

How do we begin to list all of the irreparable harm, the ” without warrant “  danger, the insidious pain, that this ” biggest bully on the block, “  Company has inflicted on millions all over the Globe?

Monsanto produces herbicides/pesticides, countless varieties of  seeds, and oh yes, GMO’s enough to feed the entire world.

By the way, their CEO Hugh Grant, not the actor,
has been quoted as saying that he eats  ONLY Organic food~

That should speak volumes!

My personally most despised product of theirs, is the herbicide/pesticide Roundup,  which I consider to be the singular most dangerous home/lawn product used in this Country.

It is applied liberally, to the eventual demise of all, including it is suggested, even the user, to yards and lawns everywhere in America.

It has, in my opinion, been the guilty party, the one thing most responsible for the nearly complete decimation of most of Florida’s amphibians, like our green treefrogs and lizards,  that once were so numerous, there were just too many to count, and now are teetering on the edge of extinction.

A question: How many now using Roundup,  know of the dangers that they place themselves in by this simple act?
