Here is a nice piece in the Eugene Daily News, “The Raw Truth About Raw Milk.” The author talks to a local raw milk producer who points out why raw milk from grass-fed cows is so glorious and safe as compared to the milk from the industrial system. “Everything starts with the health of the [...]

The Duluth city council looks like it will vote to ban outdoor smoking in its parks. Next up is on our own property outdoors, in your house, and in your car. Once again, invoke “the children” to sell the con to the public. “If we can prevent cigarette butts on the sidewalks, or people jogging with [...]

This is from the Wall Street Journal: New York’s attorney general is investigating whether the multibillion-dollar energy-drink industry is deceiving consumers with misstatements about the ingredients and health [...]

Train Monkeys, Not Men

Following my recent post on jack-booted kids, a long-time reader and corporate pilot wrote to me about the Civil Air Patrol, a training ground for brainwashed youth. He writes: I am a corporate pilot and as such visit a lot of small country airports. While I am there I have occasionally seen the Civil [...]

Our Products Are So Darn Safe That We Don’t Want You to Know What’s in Them

Sunday, August 26, 2012 18:37 1 Comment

The Big Agra-Big Food Complex is pouring it on in California’s Proposition 37. They don’t want consumers to know what is in the foods they manufacture that they claim are so safe. Imagine that? Yet all over the great United States, artisanal food makers are shut down and put out of business due to “improper” [...]

Wal-Mart and the Medical-Pharmaceutical Complex

Sunday, August 26, 2012 18:18 2 Comments

The Wall Street Journal recently ran an article on Wal-Mart’s push to get into the drug and vaccination market. It is said that Wal-Mart will now offer vaccinations beyond the standard infectious diseases, because flu and pneumonia just aren’t profitable enough anymore.

We’re seeing this stuff all over the media nowadays: anxiety, stress, panic attacks, and even trouble sleeping. This MSNBC article makes the case that we are a very nervous nation, with individuals often on the verge of one sort of attack or another.

Shopping at Detroit Eastern Market, and done by 7am. All locally grown, all organic: arugula, spicy salad mix, okra, tomatoes, sweet onions, leeks, peppers, and cucumbers. And then there is the raw milk for the morning coffee.

The Government-Industrial Food Complex Wheat

Thursday, August 23, 2012 21:35 No Comments

Dr. William Davis, a cardiologist and the author of the New York Times bestseller “Wheat Belly,” has published a great article on Boing Boing about modern wheat.

Lady Obama’s Influence on Health

Thursday, August 23, 2012 13:24 5 Comments

At a Kids’ State Dinner, the Obamas tried to wave the federal food pyramid magic wand over the minds of captured kiddies. As usual, the reader comments are the best part. Sloppy Joes and Zucchini fries were the healthy order of the day. I’m sure the Secret Service Salad was great, too. Surely that splotch of [...]
