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.

How and Why

danville
The age of innocence, about 4 years old.
Taken in Brownsburg, Indiana.

 

The subject of this Blog is the culmination of a lifetime of tenacious opposition to the mainstream thinking that has now become a world  gone mad and run amuck with chemicals and toxins.

In the late sixties and early seventies, my life and my needs were fairly simple,  as I was just trying to live in peace and maintain a natural, healthy state of mind and body.

This was not all that difficult to do in Southern California, then.

At that time, everybody wanted to protect and save everything, beginning with ourselves and spreading out to include Mother Earth, the Environment and all that lived on the planet.

White bread and all that came with it, were promptly banned and replaced with mostly wholesome, nutritious foods.

It was a time of sunflower seeds, flower children and of course, peace and love.

The opposition to and hatred of the Viet Nam  ……… what ever word is correct according to current Historians, was a subject few could remain neutral about in those days.

It was a time that gave birth to the unforgettable musical play, ” Hair “,  which I saw and loved at the Aquarius Theater  in LA in 1969.

But sadly the bloom fell quickly from the rose, as time passed and innocence eventually gave way to arrogance,  greed and corruption.

So, now today, our world is being controlled by mega corporations who,  like the big car companies, consider all of us to be their personal guinea pigs or worse,  just  ” acceptable losses “  when it comes to the products that they sell to an unknowing, or unsuspecting consumer.

But, all is not lost, for I do believe that with the advent of a very strong social media presence,  the innocent consumers are no longer the dupes that big business still thinks that we are.

We are connected, we are wired and we are willing to speak out, talk back and bring down those who would harm us and our loved ones with their lethal, dangerous products.

Ah, KARMA is alive and well~

Which brings us finally  to the  title, ” How and Why.”

This Blog will consider and address anything and everything that could cause us harm, period!

So, dear  readers, hang on, as I do not intend to take any prisoners here and Monsanto is number one on my list.
