The single most important thing we can do for ourselves and our country is to raise a garden and feed ourselves!!!
Take a look at why this is at the top of the list of things we can do save ourselves and our country. This little short documentary lays it out pretty well.
37 Companies that directly fund Planned Parenthood...See list
"Truth Revolt" reveals this list. So what can we do about it? ... Two things...boycott Starbucks and any or all of these companies (Let them know why.) and vote for candidates that do not support abortion or Planned Parenthood. We did it with our new president Trump but if he doesn't continue making America great again, give him the boot, as well. However, this is one president that is not going to be pushed around. Thank goodness!
GMO agriculture proven to cause catastrophic environmental damage
GM crops have been a heated topic of discussion because of the ongoing debate about the risks to human and environmental health. Monsanto claims that GM food will feed the world, while at the same time reducing pesticide use. But according to new research, overall herbicide use has risen dramatically over the recent years, causing severe environmental damage.
If you love salads and buy produce from grocery stores, especially leafy vegetables, you are in danger!
The EPA has temporarily blocked Enlist Duo pesticide from registration. Following a lawsuit filed by a coalition of groups led by the Center for Food Safety and Earthjustice, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stated that it is revoking the registration of Enlist Duo, a combination of glyphosate and 2,4-D.
Dow’s Enlist Duo—and Monsanto’s combination of dicamba and glyphosate, Xtend—are the biotech industry’s answer to “superweeds” that are now resistant to Roundup, the herbicide that has been increasingly dumped on American crops. To kill this new generation of weeds, Dow turned to 2,4-D, which is one of two active ingredients in Agent Orange, the chemical that wreaked havoc on the Vietnamese population and US troops alike during the Vietnam War and which is linked to a long list of horrible diseases and health conditions.

All of these chemicals sprayed on leafy greens are easily absorbed into the plant, not just on the surface to be rinsed off. They are not just poisonous to pests. They poison all who consume them. Agribusinesses routinely spray these lethal cocktails on the products that you buy from marketers. The EPA DOES NOT PROTECT YOU!
The Bill Gates Foundation is funding the direct distribution of Genetically Modified bananas in Africa, without animal testing.
It is obvious this is NOT a humanitarian move. The GM bananas, which never underwent animal trials, are currently being administered to 12 students attending Iowa State University (ISU), presumably without full disclosure as to the many unknown risks involved.
NaturalNews) At least 124 food and outreach organizations, as well as 26 individual scientists, have signed onto a letter sent to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation protesting ongoing human trials of genetically modified (GM), beta-carotene-enriched bananas intended for Africa.
Prior to landing in Iowa, the transgenic bananas were spawned at the Queensland University of Technology in Australia, also with funding from the Gates Foundation. The goal all along has been to eventually force these "frankenfruits" on Uganda and other countries in East Africa.
There is no evidence that the GM Matooke bananas are safe. Most independent research to date suggests that GMOs can induce allergies, trigger autoimmune disorders and even cause cancer, especially after many years of consumption.
"Numerous health problems increased after GMOs were introduced in 1996," explains the Institute for Responsible Technology.
"The percentage of Americans with three or more chronic illnesses jumped from 7% to 13% in just 9 years; food allergies skyrocketed, and disorders such as autism, reproductive disorders, digestive problems, and others are on the rise."
If addressing vitamin A deficiency is really Bill Gates' concern in all this, then he would be actively encouraging Africans to consume a more diverse array of foods already native to their country that are rich in vitamin A, including sweet potatoes and other natural varieties of carotene-rich bananas.
Instead, he is pushing for an untested banana with altered vitamin A levels to be forced on rural Africans who already have access to all the naturally vitamin A-rich foods they could possibly want. The real goal may have to do with Gates' other admitted agenda to greatly reduce the world's population.
Americans should be ashamed of their selfish attitudes with regard to buying habits! Their seems to be no consideration at all for whether a product is made in America by American workers or in red Chinese sweat shops. Has anyone stopped to consider that we are loosing manufacturing jobs by the millions because we could care less about where a product is made? What is up with that? Are we so concerned about saving a dollar or two that we are willing to see someone lose their job for it?
Realizing, there has been an issue of quality from time to time, yet that does not adequately explain why there is often no dialogue whatsoever, on the buyer's part, with regard to where a product is made.
This country is on the brink of economic disaster largely because we don't buy American and we don't demand retailers stock there shelves with American products! America used to be known for it's powerhouse automotive industry. Car manufacturers got lazy and took their market for granted. They tried to gain market share back with razzle-dazzle and style, letting quality take a back seat. Competition has a way of righting that situation. Over the last five years, American cars have met and often exceeded the quality of foreign, but American buyers are still shunning Chevys and Fords, in favor of Hondas and VW's.
So, what can we do?...Buy American!
Of course there are other problems that need addressing, including an electorate that is so easily swayed by the national media. How else can we explain how Obama was elected? The man said it himself on the campaign trail...
"We lve in the greatest country in the world...now join me in changing it"
How did this country get to be the greatest country in the world if it were in such drastic need of change?...and change to what; a third world country, a socialist monarchy, a country incapable of maintaining it's superpower status?...or WHAT?
We took back (from the liberals) this country in 2017, but they are hard at work trying to defeat every effort to restore our greatness. it will take some time, but we will be able to rebuild an entire economic infrastructure, in spite of liberal and media opposition.
If there was going to be a GM takeover. it should have been like some of the airlines did; mutual-ownership and operation by the employees. I was more in favor of a chapter 11 bankruptcy, which would allow for a reorganization. It is not like those jobs would have gone away. GM would not have just dissolved. They have too many assets. Government ownership should never have been considered! Now GM has sold us out, moving most luxury car and pickup construction to China!
One thing we can all do to turn things around, is to BUY AMERICAN? Yes, we have had our say at the polls, but we can also personally effect an economic recovery.
Hopefully, congress will soon lower capital gains and corporate taxes to keep what industry we do have and maybe encourage others to bring their business back to America. Such action will create jobs quicker than anything else legislation can do.
One of the more drastic measures we can take to improve the number of available jobs in this country is to close our border with Mexico. It can be done, without question. Thank goodness, President Trump is well on the way to getting a fence built. We need a complete immigration freeze, at least for the time necessary to complete the border fence and adopt a more secure and sensible immigration policy. We also need to abolish the law that automatically grants citizenship to children born here from their illegal parents. That policy makes nearly all of them immediate wards of the state and thus a huge drain on our economy.
There is no longer any need to to be afraid of atomic energy, because it is now known how to safely recycle it's waste. This is clean and inexpensive power which would also reduce the need for coal fired power plants, thus removing air pollutants. These are just a few common sense measures that could be implemented to revitalize the economy and bring us back from the brink of disaster.
Coal is not the horrible polluter it once was. This is an American energy source we have in abundance. President Trump, thankfully, is restoring it's viability by removing the onerous regulations that have strangled the entire industry and cost thousands of jobs.
Who doesn't love the idea of using free energy sources from the sun or wind?... but try putting sails or solar panels on a locomotive...I DON'T THINK SO! We need fossil fuels to carry us through this time of R&D. No doubt, some time in the future, their will be a way to utilize the power of nature for the really big jobs but it is not here yet.
I have seen in England research that showed how a huge magnifying glass concentrated the suns rays and almost instantly melting a block of steel. Why in the world this is not being used to run steam turbines for electric generation instead of coal, I don't know.
Stop buying genetically modified Organisms (GMO's)!
