From Tim O’Shea, on The Doctor Within:
“For those of you who followed the swine flu vaccine hoax of 2009 very carefully through to its demise this past year, there were some important lessons.
Inconsistency followed indiscretion in the media steamroller that tried to shove this imaginary threat through the skin of the American people in the past 2 years. And will all that is said about the dumbing down of Americans, etc., we still resist being oversold on anything. We were simply oversold on the threat of swine flu and the necessity for the vaccine. And so Americans rejected the H1N1 vaccine, with the exception of a few thousand ignorants who would probably inject Drano if the CDC told them they needed it.
A few of the things that didn’t add up in the public mind: Continue reading →
Here’s an excerpt from Raine Saunders of the AgricultureSociety.com blog, on what the recent egg recalls may be a prelude to:
“For a long time I believed that with every food recall story in the media, we’d see more and more people start taking notice of what’s going on in the food system – that food produced in factory environments is harming our health because everything is completely backward and geared toward the reign of big food and corporate agriculture – and that sustainable agriculture would start to become the order of the day.
Food recalls are not doing the job they should – they are not waking people up fast enough. The more we continue to support big agriculture’s products by ignoring these problems, the more control will be given to entities (the government) and corporations (Big Pharma and Big Agriculture – companies like Tyson, Smithfield, Swift, and Cargill who control over 80 percent of the food sold in our country) to dictate the future of food growth, production, sales, and health (or lack thereof).

Here’s a fascinating proposition, from Patrick Henning:
Sure they may be rich enough to have a plane in every garage, but if S-510 is allowed to pass the Senate, even the super rich may eventually not be able to buy any food worth eating.
In the 1980s, a British psychiatrist lived in the US. He was making a great deal more money than he could ever have made in the UK but for financial reasons, he went home. He returned because his daughter had a medical condition and he said that he could never be rich enough in the US to be sure she got adequate care, whereas in the UK, even on a considerably smaller salary, he knew she would be covered by the health system there.
Wall Street brokers are not immune from their own fears of threatening things happening in the world. Out of fear for their own lives, they do the opposite of that psychiatrist. They hope to be immune from world issues by amassing unheard of wealth. And they have the money, already, through stealing from everyone else in the country. Continue reading →
