Super Pig Farms in EU – Just Say No

Why? The Superbug that threatens people in hospitals and other locations – resistant to most medicines and eats you – started in Denmark among pig farms that used too much anti-biotics. American supported Big Ag firms and partners want to export our 1,000 plus pig farm messes to EU for more Euros in their accounts regardless of whether it kills us later or not.

Opposing industrial-scale pig farming — in Europe

At the European Parliament today, three national representatives — Janusz Wojciechowski of Poland, José Bové of France and Dan Jørgensen of Denmark — declared their opposition to industrial-scale swine agriculture

As I’ve written before (long archive here and here),the MRSA strain ST398 arose on Dutch pig farms in 2004, among pigs that had been given prophylactic doses of antibiotics, especially tetracycline. It has since spread through the EU, Canada and the United States, affecting not only farm workers and veterinarians, but also hospital patients with no connection to agriculture.

“Family” group preaches: Native American Immorality Led to Being Conquered

This man’s historical and cultural ignorance is perhaps equaled by his not understanding how hate and fear colors all his life. His ignorance will support more years of violence and hate against those who settled this land before Europeans came and well most know the history of dishonor against Native Americans. The American Family Association seems to be un-American, anti-family and a closed society for people filled with fear and hate.

Bryan Fischer: Native Americans morally disqualified themselves from the land

The native American tribes at the time of the European settlement and founding of the United States were, virtually without exception, steeped in the basest forms of superstition, had been guilty of savagery in warfare for hundreds of years, and practiced the most debased forms of sexuality.

End Bird Flu Pandemic Threat – Cull Industrialized Poultry Farming

When the natural system sees that there is an overpopulation of any species – birds in particular – it “creates” a situation that allows killer viruses to mutate and re-balance the system by killing birds. Creating in this case means that birds are stressed and in close quarters both conditions facilitated/trigger an outbreak of a virus – and the result is a system that re-balances itself by reducing the number of animals in a confined space.

Culling the birds stops the immediate outbreak but continued industrialized breeding starts up the virus cycle again. Raising fewer birds and in less confined space reduces the outbreaks. Additionally, cleaning out urine and feces often and putting it in digesters that can kill all viruses, produce methane gas for energy production, and clean fertilizer. Another by-product? Fewer outbreaks of the “normal” flu which all start from an interaction between people, poultry, and pigs.

Japan culls another 190,000 chickens

 It has now sacrificed more than half a million birds in efforts to contain H5N1 avian influenza.

This 10th outbreak was in the Miyazaki prefecture where it is proving difficult to find places to dispose of carcasses. It is the seventh outbreak since Jan. 22 in southwestern Miyazaki Prefecture.

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor – does not apply to Anti-Gay Christian Group?

It is never a surprise that extreme groups often lie to raise funds and convince prospective “supporters” to support their “true” cause but in today’s cyber-world, I wonder why they think they will get away with it for long. I guess telling the truth and finding out the facts – if they disagree with what you want to believe – is painiful enough to make lying OK?

Lipinski Finally Opens Up About “Forcible Rape” Law

Two serious illnesses are making waves in Massachusetts. One is common and one isn’t.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health confirmed six cases of cholera in the Bay State that are linked to a wedding in the Dominican Republic last week. Over 110 cases were reported in Venezuela from the January 22 wedding at Casa de Campo in. The sickness is traced to contaminated lobster.

Environment of hate in Arizona = two 9-year old girls shot and killed

We really need to learn how to live together and live up to the challenges to “love one another, as I have loved you.” “Love is the strongest force the world possesses, and yet it is the humblest imaginable.” “Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love.”

Brisenia Flores, the other 9-year-old AZ shooting victim

LatinaLista.net — The Tucson region has the dubious distinction of being a place where two nine-year-old girls were horrendously murdered — Christina Taylor Greene and Brisenia Flores.

Brisenia was also 9-years-old, but unlike Christina, Brisenia was in a place where she deserved to feel safe and protected — her home.

Currently, the woman blamed for these senseless, hateful murders is on trial in Tucson.
