Boycott Coke!

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!

Power to the Hawaiian People

As there was not the overwhelming expected response to the posting about Monsanto, I felt no great need to rush on to the next name on   The List,  which is Bayer.

But then in my email this morning,  came the impetus to do it right now.

This story is but one of countless examples of the reasons why our Planet has reached such a critical tipping point.

This is a twisted tale of money, lobbyists, pesticides and toxins, seeds, GMO’s,  politicians and of course, the usual  Mega Corporations,  and squeezed in between them,  are the outraged residents of the  Aloha State, who have just passed a  NO GMO’s  law that will start in August of this year.

Bayer and its  “comrades in crime”  have pushed one of the most beautiful, natural Islands of the Pacific, Hawaii  to be exact,  to the edge and now the Hawaiians are pushing back, hard.

The players in this story are the besieged people of the Hawaiian Islands and in the opposite corner, Monsanto, Bayer, Syngenta, Dow Chemical, DuPont Pioneer, etc., or as they are not so lovingly called, the BIG SIX.

Let the blood bath begin.

How many of you truly believe that the common people of Hawaii can outspend these Mega Groups, with their endless professional lobbyists, staunch political backers and millionaire donaters with their never empty check books?

It does not look good for the  ” people.”

This is all very personal to me,  having experienced this Garden of Eden personally several times, and being left with priceless memories of a truly perfect paradise.

The miles of never-ending fields of mouth-watering pineapples,  the crystal clear waterfalls, surrounded by a dizzying array of wild fruits trees, the abundance of pure, safe food everywhere that the eye can see, this truly is a place of miraculous beauty, and it is being held hostage, or put up for  sale right now,  by  the ” biggest bullies on the block.”

Thinking of what “ BIG AG ” is trying to do here, makes me see red.

What the people of Hawaii are attempting  to do is fight back,  albeit, perhaps in vain.

They are trying to force these BIG AG BULLIES  to identify what food  is modified and we DO have that right, all of us.

This is not the first dirty, legal  battle for these Mega Corporations, they have a lot on the line in Hawaii,  because you can be sure that the rest of the country is watching and right now,  a very frightening thought comes to mind:
so goes Hawaii, so goes the rest of the USA, maybe even the world!

This GMO Train Wreck has left the station, next stop, your dinner plate.

Stay tuned America, the entire source of your future food supply,  may be a modified genetic organism, a GMO and you may not know it, or be able to stop it.

How does that taste?

Here’s to the Power of the People, those Passionate Polynesians, the Hawaiian people!

Monsanto, the Mega Monster

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?

Roundup, An Herbicide, Could Be Linked To Parkinson’s, Cancer And Other Health Issues, Study Shows

Was just sent this horrific story about Roundup that must be included here:

More About Glyphosate (RoundUp)

This is  only one of the many pesticides, or herbicides, that this company mass produces and sends around the world, knowing full well, the deleterious  effects, the tremendous toxicity, that they have been linked to for many years now.

Next, GMO’s and Monsanto.

This  is an awesome study of their attempt to rule the world:

Top 10 Facts YOU Should Know About Monsanto

This Mega Company is making history for the overwhelming ugliness it has created towards it, they  now have so many enemies that these groups have united forces and even have their own rallies and marches against them:

March Against Monsanto

A perhaps vital tidbit for some of you, do you know what the main ingredient in nearly 100% of all of the mayonnaise made in America is?

It is soy beans.

Guess what is used on nearly 100 % of all soy bean plants grown in America?

Herbicides!

And you cannot cook it, or clean it,  out of,  or off of the food.

So, how much mayonnaise do you use?

We use a lot and I know that it is, thanks to Monsanto,  nearly pure pesticides.

Have another sandwich!

This page could go on for an eternity, but let me leave you with this final thought.

The next time that you eat anything, ask yourself this,  ” would the CEO of Monsanto eat this? “

Probably not!

 

 

The List

480px-Wikipedia_logo_bronce
Yes, Wikipedia is huge, but they do try to get it right.

 

This new Blog will attempt to enlighten the reader, as if we need to have more to worry about,  about those Companies worldwide who have little, or no regard, for the health or well being of its customers.

That would be you and me.

What it comes down to is this, we are paying these companies without conscience,  to kill us.

They produce products that they know very well are either toxic,  or at the very least not safe, or healthy to consume.

This includes,  all of us Humans, all of the planet’s living creatures  and of course our beloved pets.

China’s lethal Jerky treats come to mind and they will still be sold in some pet food stores, like Petco,  until the Fall!

Hello, we are paying them to do this to us.

Now, just in case you have been away on Holiday, or perhaps checked out for the beginning of this year, a perfect example of exactly how much we can do when we put our minds to it, was the Blogger who recently exposed  Sub Way, for the not very tasty,  rubber mat  ingredient,  azodiacarbonamide 
in their bread.

If you watch their new ads carefully now, they actually say, “we no longer have this ingredient in our bread.”

Score one for us!

And a huge thank you to the tenacious Blogger who made this happen.

So, as this Blog progresses, these are the kinds of stories we need to continue working on and at.

Together we can force these Corporate  Bullies, these  ruthless, amoral,  greedy, gluttonous Companies to change.

It has already begun~

Now for the Initial List, please do comment and offer your suggestions for it:

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.
