Before I Put Your Meat In My Mouth, I’d Like To Know Where It’s Been

 

The republican-led House of Representatives voted this past summer to end the requirement that meat labels must state where the meat is from. As Bill Maher puts it, the new bill should be called the “Freedom From Information Act”.

We have a responsibility, to ourselves and society, to be as well informed as we possibly can in order to prevent companies from taking advantage of us. Within this vast corporate, money-driven world of America, the self-interests of companies outweigh the health and safety of its citizens, all in the name of profit. We allow them to put our very lives and health at risk with our ignorance, when we decide we’d rather not know the true facts because the taste of that hamburger, for example, in that moment, is more important. We are better than that. A single hamburger today, can contain meat from over a hundred cows. What else should we allow to be hidden from us?

At the very least, defend your right to know. Demand your freedom to access information about what you put in your mouth, even if the information isn’t easy to swallow. We cannot continue to be so easily content turning a blind eye, the consequences are too great. This new bill infringes on safety and the consumers’ most basic rights. As Bill Maher so eloquently put it, “regulations are supposed to protect people from corporations, not corporations from people.

It is easy to feel powerless by how much you can do and how much change will occur with our currant political landscape. However, you make yourself more powerful by staying informed and showing an example for others. People take notice when others start to. It’s a sales pitch the government and corporations are creating for the sake of profit. Don’t let them sell you bulls**t when it comes to purchasing your food. Stay aware and connected to what’s really going on and make informed decisions. Maintain your freedom to know.

Is That a Phone in Your Pocket or are You Just Happy to See Me…

no-cell-phone-signs

The book I just finished reading only moments ago, Disconnect, by Devra Davis Ph.D., M.P.H., Co-laureat Nobel Peace Prize 2007, is perhaps one of the most startlingly real books I have read in some time as it deals with the glue that holds our society and one may go as far as saying our civilization together.

I’m speaking of the cell phone.

I cant delve too much into the book without sounding foolish and making numerous misquotes, after all, who am I, surely not a scientist and barely a person worth listening to except for the fact that I read this book and am fairly able to write with some proficiency.

In essence, the cell phone comes from the same basic principle as the early aircraft radar systems which gave way to microwave ovens, officers would cook hot dogs on the tips of their swords in front of the radar, whilst sailors on watch would warm themselves in front of the radar on cold nights, others still would stand in front of the radar to reduce sperm counts before hitting ports of call as i was rumored to drop your sperm counts thereby being a form of birth control.

Not much has changed except for the fact that the power of these devices has increased while the size has decreased, which has in turn allowed cell phones to be increasingly powerful (analog, 2G, 3G, now 4G) and instance of brain tumors and tumors in the gland behind the jaw bone among other instances of dis-ease including a burgeoning instance of breast cancer (phones help for safe keeping in the bra???) are reaching unprecedented numbers.

If you do you best to live a healthy life, if you care about your children, please take some time to at least take a look at this book, after all, Steve Jobs (founder – Apple), would not let his children use computers or cell phones.

What you know is usually what you are told and what you are told, as we now know when it comes to most things, for example, asbestos, or weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, or GMO’s to save the world from starvation, may have the best intentions at heart or may be complete lies, either way, it takes a long time for the truth to surface and when it finally does, then the cover ups are found and already a swath of destruction has been visited upon many lives.

The truth will always come out, but how about the carnage before the truth comes out when the industry sows lies to reap profit?  Could cell phones be the next Tobacco… Or worse….

go to ehtrust.org, this is Dr. Davis’ site for more info and please do read the book.  It is a rare thing to find so much information so very compelling and palatable!

Check it out on your smart phone… Ha!

Fugazi – “Waiting Room” or “My Labor Day Weekend… SO FAR!!”

Sitting here in the kamuela hospital emergency room…

Wondering if my girl lauren made it back ok to hawi to drop off my bosses car as he is very upset to have been put out so to speak…
Listening to bits and pieces of whoopi goldberg on the view talking about epidurals and kanya west not making any moronic statements… Or was it the blonde haired girl with the Kanye stuff…?The view tv show in a hospital

Helping an old man into a wheel chair as a nurse couldnt be found… he fell out of a tree…
Watching a young lady take care of her mom who was in some sort of insulin shock or lack of insulin as she vomited and wet herself… That made me feel pretty sad/fortunate/confused at the same time….
And me, with an infection slowly creeping up my leg to the point that I am now nervous…. Yes, I had it looked at at the first sign of infection, got a shot in the ass, a tetanus booster, pills, and still it creeps on…. Oh sweet day in the morning=]. What a trip life is….

That we will die one day is all the more reason to live now…

If you’re not laughin, you’re cryin. – LQ, girl I had torrid and confusingly criminal relationship with (wannabe Bonnie and Clyde style)

 

No empy spaces in me that can be filled by someon out of me

I just had a hot daydream that got me an erection, so I guess im on the road to recovery or perdition as it were. I just looked up perdition, NOT what I was thinking, so we ixnay that part….

Im thinking about my legs, now that I am lying here with a leg elevated, two bottle os pills that i eagerly await taking as thgh i am. Personally sending in the troops that will slowly win the war!

Antibiotics apparently make my skin itch in odd places

Its shameful for me to think about how little attention i pay to my body parts unless i have anaged to pay so little attention i injure them….. That, to me, couldn’t be ninja could it…?

I got to see what my skin looks like on the ultra sound in the emergency room…. Dr. C. Fredrick Von Trampe.  And yes he did seem like he was the man and the name was very well applied to this one…
there were no pockets of pus or other happy substances that he felt were worth lancing into to drain…. It had too many small ones… I didn’t know wether to be comforted or weirded out and i had thought of how cool it would be if it were in color and of course my mind tried to come up with what that may have looked like and good god im glad it was state of the art grainy black and white with #fiftyShades ofGrey in between…

Your LIFE, make it EASY…

Perhaps the easiest way to attract love into your life, the kind of love you think you are looking for, after all, if you haven’t found it, perhaps what you are looking for isn’t what you need, at any rate, here’s my thought that may help you…

Rather than focus on what you want in a partner, focus on being what that partner would want.

Be the advertisement that attracts that kind of person. Be the billboard, the lighthouse.

Don’t focus on them, focus on you being what that person would want. If you want an athletic hot partner, at the very least be a person who is trying to be athletic and work on your esteem until you can look in the mirror and SEE a hot person.

You want a partner to love you, be the kind of partner that can easily attract love because you allow yourself to not only be loving, but to accept love as well. I would wager many of you get defensive and confused and even scared when love comes knocking at your door.

Be that which you wish to receive and so shall it be.

I focused on love here as that is what many of us today are focused on.  In fact, much of what we do on a day to day basis seems to be centered, indirectly around either attracting, or keeping love.

Whatever it is you want, you truly must feel it in you for it to be real.

This isn’t a pep talk, it isn’t mystical or religious, it simply IS. And it happens to be backed up by science, mysticism, religion and of course, common sense and LOGIC.

Now go forth and be happy.

What will you do for your future, for the future of your friends and family, or do you even care, are you so caught up in the day to day that you have forgotten to live, and in forgetting to live, you have forgotten things to live FOR….?

I hope this helps you remember….

 

The rest of the story, where Dr. Tyson makes a further case for most of the acts/inventions and changes that take care of our planet came from the 1970 photo of the earth from the moon….
