Freedom of the right to know30 Senators voted against this anti-consumer, anti-states’ rights bill – see who they are

 

When the U.S. Senate voted this week to pass a federal law preempting Vermont’s mandatory GMO labeling law, 30 Senators did the right thing.  Thanks Organic Consumers Association for letting us know and collecting all this information.

Thanks Senators for standing in support of the American public!  We commend you and support you.  Blessings to you all of you!
Coach D, Donna Appel, A Voice For Change and lead health style counselor at New Medicine Foundation

Here is the information as taken from the Organic Consumers Association post dated July 7th, 2016.  Please share this with those you know and love.  We really do need to band together to make a difference and get out from under the corporate takeover so prevalent in politics today.

These 30 Senators voted against this anti-consumer, anti-states’ rights bill that was rammed through the Senate without due democratic process.

Some of these Senators were no doubt under a lot of pressure from industry groups, and from their fellow Senators, including the authors of the bill, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), to go over to the DARK side.

But they stood up to their deep-pocketed opponents. They voted with the people.

Please take a minute to see if your Senators on the list of those who stood up for your right to know yesterday, then “tweet” them a thank you. It’s also good to retweet the Senators’ own tweets about yesterday’s vote.

I’m Against Anything That Kills People or Destroys the Planet. What About You?

stand up and be heardI’m Against Anything That Kills People or Destroys the Planet. What About You?

 

Yup – that is about the size of where I stand. Sad thing is that we can’t find a President out of 7 billion or so people, that feels the same way, that stands a chance of getting elected!

Why? Because the basic American citizen does nothing to promote change other than bitch bitch bitch!  That will get us no where. Guns will get us no where.

We need to stand up TOGETHER NOW and demand change. We need to stop buying bad food. We need to stop being fed pharmaceutical drugs in an effort to get healthy. We need to stop the political process by not taking part. The system is broken.

SheepYes, the system is broken and has been for many, many years. We all know that, yet we continue with the insanity of doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!  We have turned into a country of self-serving, self-centered, self-focused SHEEPLE staring at those in charge looking for direction!  What makes anyone think positive direction is where we are headed now? Especially in light of all the controversy, hate, murders, deceit and corruption that plagues us today.

What wpeople working togethere need to do is say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!  Start working together. Start to question and put the pieces of the puzzle together. Start supporting local farmers. Start eating healthy food that is protein and plant based. Start to demand answers to issues instead of cover-ups. Start to question everything you are being fed including Rx drugs and vaccines!  Start to receive and read the studies showing foods, vaccines and drugs are safe and have been thoroughly tested. Start to think for yourself!

stopWe need to stop taking Rx drugs that mask symptoms and do nothing to promote health and healing. Stop eating foods that we can’t identify let alone pronounce. Stop eating foods that have been poisoned or altered in the growth process. We need to stop being complacent. We need to stop doing as we are told without reason.  We need to stop being a sheeple!

Start supporting the movements that represent change. There are plenty of good causes out there and they need our help. They need us to show up. Do you need some ideas of who you can turn to, trust and help to support?  Here are a few for you to investigate …. Have some of your own? Let me know. Let’s keep adding to the list.
1-The Organic Consumers Association
2-Moms Across America
3-Food Matters
4-The Truth About Cancer
5-Ubuntu Planet
6-Thrive Movement
7-New Medicine Foundation

Knowledge to help build a better, safer, kinder world that could save our lives!

x27873780DEFINING POLITICS:     Knowing What We Are Talking About  Could Save Our Lives

This was written by Foster Gamble, a fellow Thrive Movement member (actually a founding father). I felt it so well written with so much valuable information included, that I just had to make it my job to share it with everyone.  Knowledge is power. I hope you will do the same.  Write to me and let me know your thoughts.  Ask me to send you a list of additional information that you can read, watch and listen to, that is being shared with others around the world.  Together, we can and will make a difference.

’Tis the season once again when the people of middle North America spend extraordinary amounts of their time in political discussions. Despite all the awkwardness and frustration that ensues, it seems almost everyone is after pretty much the same thing: a better, safer, kinder world. Most people want others to have sufficient income, better education, access to healthcare, and freedom from hunger, war and tyranny. They just don’t agree on how to accomplish it.

DemosAdding to the alienation people tend to experience, is the fact that we don’t even have a clear definition of the terms we use to discuss these hot topics. Among the front-running U.S. presidential candidates, Bernie Sanders is a self-proclaimed Socialist — an Independent Social Democrat —while Donald Trump was a Democrat turned conservative Republican capitalist. Rand Paul is a Libertarian turned Republican. Progressive used to mean Conservative; Conservatives used to call themselves Liberals; Liberal used to mean what Libertarian means today and now Repubsthe Neo-Cons are called neo-liberals. What in the world do these terms really mean?

If we are going to have fruitful conversations, where we actually learn from one another and move toward a more secure, prosperous and harmonious society, then I think, at a minimum, we need to KNOW WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT.

I {heart} Kevin Trudeau

Posted in Environmental, Global Information Network, Political America on 18.01.12

Many of you may or may not know that I am a fan of Kevin Trudeau.  I am also a GIN club member for a reason.  In this video, radio broadcast, Kevin talks about the “patriot” act which he feels should be called the “Hitler” act or the “dictator” act.  I agree and I am outraged at what is happening in America and I plan on taking a stand.  That is why I am letting you know about this.  It affects every single person in America.  It affects your health gravely if you don’t do anything.  Watch this by clicking on the link and then clicking on the box on the right side of the screen that has Kevin and a flag hanging behind him.  Click on the play button arrow and watch.  What Kevin says is true.  I have done the homework for you.  If you have heard something negative about Kevin, consider the source then write to me so I can tell you the truth.  WATCH TODAY.  You too can help us make a difference.  http://www.ktradionetwork.com/

PS:  If you can’t get on right away, keep trying.  They are trying to close him down.  They don’t want you to know what he has to say.

Now You Know (NYK) …
