ActivstPost – Catherine J. Frompoich – Labeling Is Not The Only Thing About GMOs We Don’t Know – 21 October 2013

Logo_activistpost-comGenetic modification of plants—along with cloning of animals, remember Dolly the Sheep (1996)—has been going on without apparent second thoughts being given to the ramifications of what such technological advances do to the biosphere.

Recently, concerned citizens have taken a second look at GMO technology relative to the toxic chemicals used in the development of genetically modified food and seeds, plus their application in the environment. Currently, the Hawaiian island of Kauai County Council voted 6 to 1 on a bill that requires agriculture companies to disclose the chemicals they use in testing and growing GMO crops. Furthermore, the bill would prevent the use of those chemicals from being sprayed near schools, hospitals, residential areas, and waterways. [1] Continue reading

Nancy Pelosi – Nancy Pelosi: What Difference Does It Make What Was In The Spending Deal? – 21 October 2013

Freedom Outpost

It seems that the question “What difference does it make?” continues to be touted by radical socialist Democrats. First it was former State Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton as she became flustered during questioning about Benghazi. Just days ago, following the spending bill that screwed over the American taxpayer for political expediency, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked “What difference does it make” what was in the spending bill?

Pelosi addressed reporters during a weekly press briefing on Thursday to discuss the last minute deal, which ignores spending caps mandated by the sequester and included several appropriations that have caused many eyebrows to be raised.

ZeroHedge – How Central Banks Have Broken Fiscal Policy In One Sentence – 21 October 2013

ZeroHedgeBy now, and certainly in the aftermath of the embarrassing US government shutdown, it has become clear to everyone that fiscal policy is terminally broken as a process through which to reform and fine-tune the economy. But far from affecting only the US, fiscal policy has failed miserably to encourage structural reform in virtually all broken European states, the bulk of which reside in the periphery but increasingly more France and also Germany. Why? A very simple reason: the Fed’s shotgun monetary policy, which is rising the stock market to such unprecedented heights, it allows politicians the loophole they need to justify their irrelevance, and impotence. After all, if stocks are up who cares if the US doesn’t have a budget for over 4 years. or if the Italian debt/GDP ratio is rising at a record pace, or if Spanish bad debt is accumulating at breakneck speeds, or if Greek youth unemployment is 60%+. Hey, look over there stocks, are up. Continue reading

Dana Colour Pic NewThis question came in from Richard* (name changed) about ‘ascension’. I’m sharing it here for anyone who has the same concerns.

QUESTION:

Aisha North – Short Update On The Energies – 21 October 2013

AishaNorthWe would like to take this opportunity to delve a little bit into the current energies. As many of you have already ascertained, these are not your regular blasts of energy, rather, it is as if you are being disconnected from it all, as if you are floating, almost like an astronaut lost out in space. It might feel lonely out there, but trust us when we say you have not been left out there for good, rather, this is a very important transitional phase, one that will help you to re-enter YOURSELF, rather than stripping you of anything that might still be construed as the old you.

Lucas – Unity Is Within – A State Of Being Not A Creation – Being One – 21 October 2013

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/6f/Sun_symbol.svg/200px-Sun_symbol.svg.png?uselang=nlUnity perceived as a merge together of all or as being a hive-mind drone like oneness structure is not what unity is… and unity being brought to you by a certain group or personal opinion is still not unity.  It is so easy to fall again in the trap of division if you do not do this or that or have this view on even unity.. and therefore you  go into separation again.  You will not make it if you don’t do or be like, etc, will not make it unite or one.  It is about bringing unity into your own being. It is about uniting the opposites and balance them out into neutral within. That is not the same as outbalance one in the favour of the other on the outside.  You can not make things right or wrong you only can balance into neutral. Therefore any attempt of seeking unity outside yourself will fail. Continue reading
