Greed-based Spin About GM Chickens Conquering Flu

Industrialized farming of poultry over the past decade – chickens, duck, geese, turkeys – and its massing of birds raised to profit from the world market caused nature to respond with the lethal H5N1 avian influenza as a means to “re-balance” an out of balance system. The “scientists” proclaim themselves as masters of nature and that “their” (soon to be patented) GM chickens will end the threat of H5N1 in chickens. What the development of a monoculture of chickens will do is trigger another attempt by the natural system to develop another, perhaps even more lethal virus to “re-balance” the system again.

Greed-based science is not the cure, it will likely be the “disease” that will kill us all.

Roaming Herds = the right way to farm sustainably

Sounds strange but when you think about it this guy is right. Grasslands that fed buffalo ins North America, and savannas in Africa that host all sorts of herding animals “evolved” to stay healthy together! Fence the land and don’t let animals roam naturally and the grass and soil begins to die – Observe nature and learn! Don’t Fence Me In!

Will Arizona Senate Leader Welcome President Obama or “Require Papers”?

A month ago, Pearce, one of the main architects and proponents of the SB 1070 anti-immigration law in Arizona, infamously joked at a Judicial Watch panel: “I can tell you that the best thing about 1070 is that Obama may not be visiting Arizona because we actually require papers now.”

Palin prays nothing she has said/done contributed to Giffords tragedy

It would have really been quite refreshing and brave if she had made such a statement or expressed those thoughts instead of attacking her attackers. I hope that she can some day she may add compassion to her passion.

Sarah Palin brands media’s attacks over Arizona shooting as ‘blood libel’

Politician breaks silence on Giffords shooting and lambasts opponents with controversial choice of language

Sarah Palin today accused her opponents of manufacturing a “blood libel” by suggesting her rhetoric and campaign tactics had anything to do with the Arizona shootings.

Palin’s bizarre use of language is sure to provoke further controversy – a blood libel refers to the false claim that Jews murder children to use in religious rituals. Giffords is Jewish.

Be Indignant! Calling for Return to Finest of French Values

“Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” – not expulsion, dis-unity, enmity, and inequality. This may be the beginning of 1968 deja vu worldwide? Can we make it right this time – in peace, joy and love because the opposite will… The title in the piece is wrong – I think being indignant is different from being angry.

It is incumbent upon each of us to work together so that our society remains one that we can be proud of: not this society of undocumented workers, of expulsions, of suspicions towards immigrants, not this society where retirements benefits and social welfare programs are put into jeopardy, not this society where the media is in the hands of the rich.

Pride + Addiction to Publicity + Hate = Almost Unbelievable Reaction to Tucson Shootings

When the society gives “support” to political extremism – “lone and crazy” folks delude themselves into thinking their acts will bring them fame and approval from those they admire.

In a flier posted to the WBC website
“God appointed this rod for your sins! God sent the shooter!”
“Your federal judge is dead and your (fag-promoting, baby-killing, proud-sinner) Congresswoman fights for her life. God is avenging Himself on this rebellious house! WBC prays for your destruction — more shooters, more dead carcasses piling up, young, old, leader and commoner — all. Your doom is upon you!”

An Afghan Poet Tears at the Truth of Her Being

My hope for her is that 10 years from now, someone will say: “Amazing that women were not fully appreciated back then – look at all they have done, now, to move us forward!”

A World of Luck

If I were not a woman
the day I was born
Mom wouldn’t have suffered.
Dad wouldn’t have warned
her: You’ve brought shame
to the house!

If I were not a woman
I would never be a hurt,
never be ashamed.

Respect for Constitution?

Republicans respect the Constitution so much that four of them submitted Amendments to it yesterday. Some would take that to mean they thought the Constitution was somehow deficient, or that they think that all Americans before them and who will come after them were/are/will be too dumb to get things right. Good thing that these same four do not have as much respect for their religious beliefs; they’d be trying to amend God to suit themselves – grin.

Disunion: First South Carolina. Then New York?

Does this apply today – substitute Arizona for NYC?
