Wife thinks I'm losing it...

Sometimes I wish I had just taken the blue pill and can go back inside the Matrix. My wife and I are at odds over quite a few issues lately...GMO foods is the latest. After the French gmo rat study...I don't want the kids near the stuff. This is causing all kinds of friction over sodas, eating out, etc. The argument last night was over Halloween and the HFCS in the candy I don't want the kids eating.

She thinks I'm losing it and have turned into the most UNfun person around. Maybe she's right.

GMO, Chemtrails, Agenda 21, 9-11, coming dollar and financial collapse, etc, etc, etc,....it just never seems to stop. This rabbit hole I'm in seems to be a bottomless pit.

My wife was very upset with me during Waco.

Anyone claiming that the "government" so called is anything but Crime made Legal at the False Federal Level are shut down immediately into false denial when offered any information on Waco.

Such as:

http://www.public-action.com/SkyWriter/WacoMuseum/

Waco led to the OK City False Flag and the Militia Movement, so called.

Waco happened after Ruby Ridge.

My wife was upset because I was dead set to join the Armed March on Washington D.C. to try and hang those criminals responsible for that holocaust in Waco.

Linda Thomson was selling (at cost) these Videos in those days:

So, two little children, me being the only one working, and I'm calling a phone to join the armed march on Washington D.C. called by Linda Thomson, and I am determined to lead the charge, if necessary. The idea is to show up with a force that deters any aggression, deters any violence, at all, but to show up with a force that is a force, not a bunch of people bending over and walking backwards.

That did not pan out, but you can see some measure of some sympathy in my example - I hope.

Relax, you're powerless

Except for ruining your kids fun on Halloween, you can't change or effect anything you write about. So,relax. This is all just a hobby.

It is way more fun to be

It is way more fun to be non-GMO person. Let me tell you a few examples:
a. Two weeks ago there was the march against Monsanto. You can have lots of nice conversations at these events with different types of people. There is music, information, speakers,etc.
b. It is way more fun and sociable to go into Whole Foods and talk to the employees, ask for information, learn, etc. I have found out that WF employees are much more motivated and like the stuff more than the SafeWay types.
c. Your conversations are more intelligent, more lively.

you should meet this person

Help, my husband thinks I'm crazy!

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

To LibertyBelle

I want to marry you!! I have not met one woman in the USSA that gets it. You must be from some other planet. :)

It isn't fun!

Doing what's right nowadays isn't fun at all.
But the up-side is you're doing what's right ;^D

Parenting is probably loads of fun (and loads of work), but if you've got kids then you've signed up for the job to make sure they are looked out for. Make up for it by doing LOTS of fun stuff whenever you want, but keep up doing what's right!

Delusional fools

Alex Jones and Mike Adams are telling you the painful truth. You can deny it all you want. You can pray to God that it goes away, but it is only going to get worse. God is not going to help us, because we have done this to ourselves.

The real truth is right in front of you and it is about to CRUSH you into the ground. You can't wrap your poisoned brain around it, so you call everything a conspiracy theory.

The darkness is almost here. God or no one else is going to save you and your family. I truly hope you get your head out of your ass, before it's to late.

Natural Order

They are telling us the truth, hu?

So juiceboxes make kids gay?
The Nazis would have used GM food to poison the population?
That thousands of local governments are putting fluoride in the public water supply not in a misguided attempt at public health, but for mind control?
That psychoactive drugs like LSD, DMT, and cannabis turn people into mindless, barely functioning zombies?
That every spree killer is a product of the secret (declassified) MK-Ultra program that was ended 50 years ago?
That the sky is falling?

Oh wait, that last one is Chicken Little. I often get them confused with Mike Adams and Alex Jones. But you seem to think that the world is coming to an end too (probably a result of that New World Order) so I guess I shouldn't joke about it.

HERE IS SOME REAL TRUTH FOR YOU.

The Weimer Republic had atrocious hyperinflation. Times were rough, but Germany still exists. Today they are better off than most countries in fact.

Japan had two nuclear bombs dropped on it. Hiroshima and Nagasaki not only exist, they are thriving and prosperous. Many of the people survived the catastrophe and are still living today.

Millions of people have been eating GM food for over a decade. Cancer rates have not skyrocketed. (though cancer detection has improved).

I could go on and on.

The world is not ending. Please take your psychobabble back to Infowars. Living in constant paranoia in fear and convincing others to do the same is not a good way to live.

Some of us went the

Some of us went the intellectual/academic route rather than the conspiracy route in 2008, yes we have more fun lol.

The Primal Blueprint changed my life. It's like the cheat codes for health. 90% of people would be healthier than they have ever been if they follow it for just a month or two.

Yes, it almost feels like

Yes, it almost feels like cheating. :)

I did not have any major health issues like being overweight, but I can definitely feel that I'm feeling better since eating better for about 2-3 months now.

I also just realized that I forgot to mention one other very important "cheat code": cut out wheat from your diet

Read the awesome book "Wheat Belly" by Dr. Davis and/or visit his blog:
htpp://www.wheatbellyblog.com

Since throwing wheat out of the house my memory and concentration has improved and combined with the Paleo/Primal approach I don't have these huge post lunch dips, the "give me food right now or I'll pass out" moments, etc. etc.

Organic is more expensive in the beginning, but after having switched over it's about equally expensive. Why? You're getting more 'bang for the buck' so to speak.

Also, organic meat has a wayyyyy better omega 3/omega 6 ratio than meat from grain-fed animals.

Why do they get grains? To make them grow fat very fast (*hint*)

Wheat makes you consume 15% more calories then needed by influencing your "you've already eaten enough/hunger"-signal

Primal

I work w/ some guys that are on some variation of the Primal.
They weren't fatties, but both had differing health issues that made them take stock of what they were ingesting.
Both lost a LOT of weight over the past year... and both feel better now than since they were children.

Their testimony will lead to others finding Food Freedom.

John C, here is my advice to you.

Someday never exists, it never has and it never will...All you have is today....

Live your life, here's one more:

Yesterday is ashes. Tomorrow is green wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly.

The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

How can Ron Paul, Alex Jones, and others who are poor handle it?

Call it philosophy or religion, but when you start to shift from enjoying Halloween and giving away the candy instead of fearing it and restricting.

Like RP says, you can't legislate morality. You lead by example, and if your quality of life is TRULY better than others will naturally follow.

Moderation is what I use

Make eating organic fun. Go to organic farmstands or farmers markets if those are available. We love doing that. The farmstands are out in the country, there are farm animals around, the kids would love it. The farmers markets usually have family activities.

Then once in a while let them eat junk. Just not a lot of junk. Tell your wife that she had these kids, and she has to take care of them. They depend on her.

I have gone to many lakes, streams and watering holes

and I haven't been going around with a self defeating attitude. Its just that women have been brainwashed or trained or whatever to only respond to one kind of guy, and it's no wonder so many of them are unhappy. I go to meet ups and all that stuff and this is what I'm talking about! If they aren't like that they have already been taken and are married or in a serious relationship. There really is a drought of awake women out there. I appreciate people trying to give me advice but it isn't anything I haven't already tried and and heard dozens of time before. I gues I should just be happy I have legs and arms and a brain and wasn't born in a third world hellhole or whatever, it's just very frustrating seeing everybody else around me doing fine not having that problem.

It IS no fun!

Of course not, and it's a struggle to keep from eating all the bad food at the fast foods & the restaurants and ballgames, etc. Yes, it is and I'd agree wtih your wife. She is right, but it doesn't mean you should go full boar and eat like pigs at all these places. Try to find a compromise. If you can afford organic food, do it 80% of the time. Eat out maybe once/week with your family. I don't know what else to say, but that should help a little.

Direct your wife to this website, and plead with her to do it, if you have to. Once here daily for awhile, she'll begin to get the drift.

I can relate

except in reverse of course. I actually read this to my husband and he said, "that is totally YOU" lol

I try to use the 90 - 10 rule. Try to eat at least 90% clean and allow for an occasional guilty pleasure.

Ugh

I give up already with my wife. Think I know why cavemen are depicted dragging women behind them by their hair. Haha, that's meant as a joke son, a joke, got it? A joke.

Your wife shouldn't be

Your wife shouldn't be questioning what you decide is safe for your family - that is your job. She is trying to manipulate you. Just be firm on this but don't go to extremes.

The HFCS stuff isn't that bad in moderation - just find out which foods use the GMO and buy the organic stuff. Its pretty simple. Fast foods and such should be limited anyway to necessity - when you absolutely don't have time for anything else.

IMO...You have to stay away

Moderation. . .

In my house my wife is the food nazi and although I generally agree with her on most issues, I'm the force for moderation. On Halloween we let the kids enjoy their loot, they get to choose 12-15 pieces of whatever candy they want, and we 'buy-back' the rest... give them cash for the remainder.

My wife buys half-organic and certain things conventional and she's very aware of which conventional things are the worst and which are not so bad... Corn and Soy are out completely for example unless organic.

I understand your concerns about food... and they are certainly justified.. no argument there. But, balance with your marriage is important. Let your wife know you're reasonably concerned and want to shift away from GMO food, but that you understand it is a challenging undertaking in terms of cost, effort and lifestyle change and that you are not going to insist on your way all the time, but rather talk things through and change gradually.

You'll never get it perfect unless you're extremely wealthy and have people to procure and prepare your food. Do your best to share info with her.. watch Food Inc. and other documentarys...

But the marriage comes first!

great advice.

My husband and I watched Food Inc and it changed our meat habits forever.

A Message To Your Wife:

Dear lady:

Lucky you to have such an intelligent man for a husband.

He is simply very well aware of what is really happening in this world.

Many people shy away from these subjects because they are emotionally challenging. That is all. Go hug each other ♥

What you have is a highly intelligent man for a husband.

That was beautiful. Your user

That was beautiful. Your user name is appropriate! I wish you could have had my husband's ear.

I understand the OP's angst, as my now ex-husband would not listen as I started to awakened back in '06. (and as you know, once you do you cannot unawaken!)He thought I was nutz, and would not give me even a moment to discuss anything I was learning, at all, and even told everyone at his work and all our mutual friends that I was losing it.

It always good to find out who's got your back, neh?
