The real cause of the California drought: The Government

California’s San Joaquin Valley is the salad bowl of the world, providing the majority of fruits and vegetables for the entire nation. But, with another man-made drought looming, the San Joaquin Valley is in danger of becoming a dust bowl unless immediate action is taken to change policies that put the needs of fish above the livelihood of people.

House Republicans have a bipartisan, comprehensive solution to end future man-made droughts, bring job and water supply certainty to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys in California and decrease reliance on foreign food sources.

Crazy Stuff In Your Food & Medicines (List)

IT's PEOPLE!

Scene from the movie Soylent Green

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sp-VFBbjpE

FAIT ACCOMPLI is when sci-fi of the past becomes a reality in the future. Movies often depict or foretell "Things to Come".

I think we should be doing all that is possible to EXPOSE the INSANITY of "what is in our food" and for that reason I thought it would be interesting to create a data base of 'Crazy Stuff in Your Food & Medicines'.

Monsanto's Worst Nightmare Coming True: The Rise of GMO Labeling

Activists against GMOs just might take down the biotech giants after all. GMO labeling could soon be a sweet reality.

Last week, Colorado broke a new record by bringing 16,950 signatures to a GMO labeling campaign for fall’s election, more than double the qualifying signatures needed to make sure that GMO labeling is on the ballot. This huge message to Monsanto accompanies a similar campaign in Oregon, all while the biotech industry awaits approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture for more Agent Orange chemicals (2,4-D) to be used where glyphosate has failed.

Federal Cybersecurity Director Found Guilty on Child Porn Charges

As the acting cybersecurity chief of a federal agency, Timothy DeFoggi should have been well versed in the digital footprints users leave behind online when they visit web sites and download images.

But DeFoggi—convicted today in Maryland on three child porn charges including conspiracy to solicit and distribute child porn—must have believed his use of the Tor anonymizing network shielded him from federal investigators.

Historical European Martial Arts

I have always been fascinated by swordplay. Most of you who know me, know that I am a traditionalist by nature. It wasn't something I decided rationally. More, I was a product of my environment and my upbringing. Naturally as a child, while the neighbors were playing cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians, I was playing Robin Hood and Peter Pan. While folks were playing 007: Goldeneye on their Nintendo 64's, I was trying to track down the original Nintendo version of Final Fantasy 1.

As I grew to become more cogent and grounded in reality, I shed a lot of the escapism that I used to safeguard myself from the conditions of a traumatic childhood. I became someone who was fully grounded in reality with a passion for the here and now; as opposed to someone with an irrational desire to live in the past, ignoring those frightful aspects that progress has shielded us from having to face.

Disclaimer: This is my personality. Not an attack on other peoples hobbies. I appreciate that I am limited to my own perspective. No need to defend yours.

The Importance of Gold

It's Our Currency And Our Problem

Most Americans don't understand that gold is not an investment- it is an asset or an insurance policy.

Gold is money.

A country's currency not backed by gold is only as good as the soundness of its monetary and fiscal policy.
