Would You Like Raw Milk or rBGH Milk?…You Decide

Milk Nazi Alert It’s funny how the Milk Nazi’s are on the war path against raw milk, but Monsanto gets a free pass.  Fox news completely ignored the research and “human health concerns” of rBGH Milk in favor of advertising dollars from Monsanto.  This 10 minute clip, from the original reporters,  tell the story of…

The Milk Nazis Continue Their March

“It’s not about health, it’s about control” In the furore around Home on the Range dairy, statements from Health Authorities resulted in headlines such as “Raw milk hazardous to health”. They’d have you believe that ‘every glass of raw milk is seething with bad germs’.  Which is utter nonsense.  In fact, as it comes from a…

The Dash Mark

August 28, 2009
By

It has been said that every life is bookmarked by two dates.  There is the date you were born and the date you die.  In between is a dash… that is our life.  That always seemed to be a good reminder of just how short and insignificant our lives are in the scope of history, and…

Racial Hatred and Media Politics

August 20, 2009
By

This is the most absurd propaganda piece I have seen in years.  I use to get upset when the evening news would cover a prolife event we were participating in and talk about us while showing clips of the purple haired tattooed one-world socialist tree hugging save the starving third world co-dependent lesbian whales crowd.  (HT…

Food Fascism, Southern Culture, and My Garden

Thomas Moore, the chairman for the Southern National Congress, wrote a great essay late last month, that is well worth sharing.  He gives a great high level fly over of the root problem in the corporate food industry.  It doesn’t matter if the new laws, such as the Food Safety and Modernization Act of 2009…

Food, INC.

June 13, 2009
By

Here is another movie that just opened on the 12th, called Food, Inc.  We haven’t seen the entire movie yet, but we will.  Based on this interview, I’m sure there are parts of the movie that we will disagree with, such as a solution to the problem which includes “Changing Walmart” or other corporations.  Having said…

Here’s another good reason why you should know where your food is coming from.  This article from USA Today:  Something Fishy?  Counterfeit foods enter the U.S. market. Some of your favorite foods may be fakes.  Foods masquerading as something else — a more nutritious something else — have been big news in the past two…

Corporate Bailouts North of the Mason Dixon Line – Part III

In part two of this series, I joked about northern auto workers moving south as carpetbaggers, but the truth of the matter is the south is no different in her positioning during these hard economic times.  This is shown by our southern leaders who talk with a draw, but spend our tax money like they are on…

Corporate Bailouts North of the Mason Dixon Line – Part II

It appears this may come to blows before it blows over.  The Times Online picked up the heated name calling by the Yankee bailout proponents and have no doubt added more fuel to the fire by running this article.  Here are a few highlights. Almost 150 years after the American Civil War the struggle to…

Corporate Bailouts North of the Mason Dixon Line

Here is a great look at the foundational principles of corporate buyouts.  In her article entitled Uncivil War: Detroit Blames the South, Karen De Coster takes the UAW, Detroit News columnist John McCormick, and Michael Lind from Salon to task over their yankee ideology. “Boom times and credit bubbles (and recent bailouts) have masked dead business models, considerable…

How the Industrial Revolution Made Life Harder

We have written many times on the Industrial Revolution and what a drastic change it has made to our economic, cultural, and political landscape.  There are so many ramifications, that it is difficult to even identify them, let alone be able to understand their full impact on our lives.  It may be questioned if we are even able…

Dabney the Political Prophet and His Unanswered Prayer (1897)

That popular suffrage does not now really govern this country, that it is notoriously a marketable commodity, that the United States have really ceased already to be what they pretend, a federation of republican States, no clear sighted man doubts.  Under a thin veil of radical democracy, the government has already become an oligarchy.  Are…

The state will inject SFr6bn (£3.1bn) into UBS, its biggest…

From the Washington Post: Peter Fitzgerald, chairman of Chain Bridge Bank in McLean, said he was “much chagrined that we will be punished for behaving prudently by now having to face reckless competitors who all of a sudden are subsidized by the federal government.” At Evergreen Federal Bank in Grants Pass, Ore., chief executive Brady…
