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.

You don't know anything about me.

You don't know fears. You don't know my thoughts. You don't know my eating habits. You don't even know what I look like beyond this picture.

Shut the fuck up and get a life.

You display your fears with your every post

You give yourself away. I can't help it if you are so transparent.

and so it goes

I think those of us that are awake grow accustomed to that kind of treatment. The ones who chide us the most are examples of the most severely brainwashed. The techniques used by the media to control people are very effective.

Hopefully the time when come that your wife awakens, too.

How condescending.

Buying into every crackpot theory Alex Jones and his ilk push and ignoring that most of them are wrong doesn't somehow make you enlightened, it just makes you a sucker.

But hey, you keep trusting Infowars for your health advice and I'll keep trusting professionals with medical degrees.

I don't play, I commission the league.

who said anything about AJ, etc?

go back to your troll hole.

You're crazy dude! [sarcasm]

Don't you realize that all of the claims made by Infowars and Natural News are 100% true?! Even the stuff that contradicts the other stuff! The most true claims are the ones that have no plausible scientific mechanism. They are true because Alex Jones and Mike Adams would not lie. Everyone has an agenda except for them.

Trust only Mike Adams and Alex Jones. Don't trust the tens of thousands of 'mainstream' scientists and physicians doing biomedical research. They are part of a massive conspiracy to poison the public through medicine and the food supply. Only Alex Jones and Mike Adams can be trusted!

I think we all struggle with this kind of thing...

I sometimes wish I could go back to sleep as well, it seems like the whole world is against you, when your awake... LOL! The way we approach it in our house, is to just try and find a balance between the two worlds. We let the kids have their Halloween, but we don't let it go overboard. ie Halloween is not a whole week event.... we go out in the evening for 'trick or treat', and when the bags are 'reasonably' filled (personal judgement) we go home! I try to encourage them to choose the chocolate bars over colored candy, as I think it's just slightly closer to nature... than a bunch of 'colors' made with chemicals. (Also, I notice my kids go crazy when they eat food coloring... more so than the sugar.... like a switch gets flipped in the brain!) But, the deal is they eat a couple of pieces a day... over the next several days... and have to drink a lot of water to help their bodies process it. Then at the end of the week, I throw out the 'left overs'. I think 90% of the fun, is dressing up in costume and getting something every time they knock on a door.... the rest is gravy. Also, we don't generally have candy in the house as a rule, so I feel like once a year is not going to hurt them.

Yeah...tends to happen

It can't be helped that one doesn't feel so....'perky' or whatever when they find out that literally everything they knew is a lie...tends to take the 'perk' right out of ya.

Some people get angry or depressed, others get motivated, a few get protective and/or paranoid, and still others such as myself simply choose to grab a bag of popcorn.

My brother has an idea of what's going on, but he flat out told me that he doesn't want to even think about it, and that he doesn't want to see it coming (why?) At least my lecturing about gold/silver and taxes took, though...kinda.

As for Halloween...well they're not my kids so I obviously can't tell you what to do, but unless eating some candy on Halloween is going to have some irreversible effect, then I say let 'em. It's not as if their adult lives are going to be any fun...

A signature used to be here!

Balance is key

to making it through life.

Work with your wife, give and take, compromise. What good is it to be right and miserable, as time goes on maybe your wife will see what you see, and you both will be on the same page but until then give a little.

I used to have to print articles that I knew my husband would read and bring it to him gradually he began researching on his own and now we both work together.

Good luck

Yeah. I was much happier

Yeah. I was much happier/carefree before I stumbled upon this stuff. Sometimes I wish I was still ignorant.

The point of life is to be happy

Halloween candy is bad for you in a hundred different ways even before you consider GMOs. It's nutritionally void, full of sugar, fattening, teeth-rotting, etc.

But it makes kids crazy happy for a few hours.

The point of life is to be happy. People don't want to be libertarian - they want to be happy! I'd recommend that you take the blue pill for a few hours on halloween, let the kids be happy for a bit. They won't perish if they have a couple Kit Kat's. If anything, turn it into a lesson of moderation and let them make the choice for themselves. Live for personal freedom first, that's what you can effect.

Just my opinion. My kids already have their costumes.

Peace!

I know where

Your coming from. My wife has no interest in any issues that face our nation. Are you passing out the same candy to other children that you don't want your kids to eat? Halloween is something the kids look forward to every year so I guess weening them off the candy is what I would do. I would make my own trail mix of course with a few m&ms added for fun. Good luck.

Ron Paul Was Right

I wouldn't be able to pass

I wouldn't be able to pass the stuff out if I wouldn't let my own kids eat it.

I was a bit oblivious of GMO until it started hitting the headlines daily on all of my favorite alt. news sites. The French rat study was a wake up call. Obviously...more study is needed and there are potential flaws/issues with the French study...still..my gut tells me there is more fact than fiction in that study.

Your "gut" would be the most precise indicator.

Because that is where the problems begin and develop. I know you used "gut" as meaning "intuition", but I mean it literally.

The GM hybrid semi-dwarf wheat seems to be the source of many problems. Couple that with HFCS and you've got a destructive mess for the digestive system to deal with.

I gave up wheat and all wheat-related products 9 weeks ago, and have had 29 pounds melt off like magic. My migraines are gone and I sleep like a baby instead of waking up in the middle of the night. Heartburn also greatly reduced.

Have your wife listen to this interview with you....

I think that if you present her with an opinion by an "expert", she may start to open up to what you are saying.

Best of luck. This is a very important issue, and kudos to you for trying to protect your children's health.
