One of the most intrepid GMO science researchers for over twenty years, Jeffrey Smith, of the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT), interviewed Attorney Brent Wisner, the genius lead lawyer who apparently overwhelmed the legal system by finally getting Monsanto’s Papers, which documented “malicious conduct by a corporation” and “complete manipulation of science,” according to him during his representation of Mr. Dewayne Johnson in the Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto lawsuit.

Jeffrey Smith and IRT produced a stunning repertoire of short video clips of his interview with Mr. Wisner, which are nothing less than stunning information regarding the fraud, concealment and scientific manipulation corporations use to get CDC/FDA/USDA/EPA approval(s) and / or licenses.

If society fell apart, we - the people would build a new one. Most people are good at their core, and when we see things that are wrong we work to fix them together. Make friends with your neighbors, get involved with your community - because we will rebuild our lives, our communities, from horrible circumstances we always will.

The US Government Just Reclassified 'Pink Slime' as 'Ground Beef' (Posted: 43 minutes ago)
...



Well, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), that slimy pink goo is actually ground beef.

In another case of big business getting the best of the legitimate concerns of consumers, South Dakota pink slime purveyors Beef Products Inc (BPI) have received the stamp of approval from the USDA to allow it to call the repulsive goo “ground beef.”

The move to reclassify the slime from “lean finely textured beef” to “ground beef” was made in December, but also comes after a years-long effort by the industry to combat the fallout from the pink slime scandal – which resulted in a defamation lawsuit by BPI against ABC News that was settled in 2017 for about $177 million, the highest-ever sum in such a corporate lawsuit.

In the story, which relied on data from former USDA officials, ABC correspondent Jim Avila said:

“Beef trimmings that were once used only in dog food and cooking oil, are now sprayed with ammonia to make them safe to eat, and then added to most ground beef as a cheaper filler.”

After the settlement was reached, beef purveyors then set about convincing the ace regulators at the USDA.

BPI vice president of engineering Nick Ross told Beef Magazine:

“We approached USDA about the possibility of reclassifying our product. It was an extensive review that took well over six months and included consumer reviews, nutritional panels, tours of the plant where agency folks could get a first-hand look at the process and understand what we are doing at BPI.”

Since 2017, the USDA has been headed by Secretary of Agriculture George “Sonny” Perdue III, a former Georgia governor with a stake in the beef industry who has been dogged by corruption allegations throughout his political career and whom critics see as “more interested in rewarding industry and agriculture than in protecting the public health.”

The USDA has since been transformed into an industry vessel that rubber stamps Big Food and Big Agriculture demands, enshrining them into law. Karen Perry Stillerman, senior analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Food and Environment Program, told the Project On Government Oversight:

“Secretary Perdue seems to have installed an extra-large revolving door to usher in lobbyists and executives from giant corporations.”

And – surprise, surprise – the USDA found that the slime met its “regulatory definition of ground beef” under the Code of Federal Regulations.

What does this mean for consumers? Well, not much.

Talk of big government notwithstanding, restaurants and companies were never forced to tell consumers when they were consuming the slime formerly known as lean finely-textured beef.

And technically, pink slime is still a form of beef, just like many dog food products are. As Food and Wine Magazine wrote:

“So previously, you may have been buying ground beef with added LFTI you didn’t know about; now, you’re buying ground beef with added ground beef, which you won’t know about. Frankly, if you’ve made up your mind about what BPI produces, the name change probably won’t change your mind as well.”

We wouldn’t be surprised if soon, Kraft singles and Velveeta were promoted from pasteurized processed cheese products to semi-soft cheeses.

I just watched a video on Amazon Prime called "River of Waste", it is about all the detriments of CAFO's (confined animal feeding operations), Environmental, Health, etc... It focuses primarily on the poultry industry and the large corporate producers like Tyson.

It was made in 2009 and is about 1 1/2 hours long. Its not the most entertaining video on the subject, but it has lots of good info, including government corruption and scientists being silenced. Worth a watch if you have the time!

Now, these are not huge animals, and do not need super large pens, yet..
That's alot of poop. My dog makes plenty of poop to scoop every week, and as I think of cleaning and caring for these creatures, I feel put off.
Now to safely render all that poop I'd need to compost. What do I do with all that compost? I have to garden. The garden feeds me, and scraps back to the animals as feed.
Lord help me, I feel too lazy to work. I never thought that would happen to me.
I guess at least I have a plan.

Right now I have a life of leisure.  I would have trustworthy food at the cost of mere work. Is the trade off worth it?

Do any of you keep critters for food? Is it very time consuming, and does feed set you back a bunch?

There's some kind of towed attachment for small tractors/ ATVs that llama keepers use for keeping "llama beans" cleared up (really important for them because of IIRC parasites). Quick search didn't reveal it. I'll keep looking.

This isn't what I was thinking of, I don't think- but this is pretty snazzy. And not crazy expensive. I would think it would work with about any kind of solid waste.

still looking...

Thursday, February 21, 2019 by: Vicki Batts

Natural News) If you’ve ever suspected that people are getting dumber by the day, new research has just proven humans really aren’t as smart as they used to be. Studies show that the average IQ score has been falling with every generation born after 1975 — and now, scientists believe that at least one pesticide may be to blame for the sudden drop in intellect — if not more.

Countless studies have linked pesticide exposure to an array of health problems in humans, but scientists are now beginning to identify organophosphates, a class of pesticides, as a particularly malicious threat. Among the myriad of ill effects caused by exposure to organophosphates, evidence shows these compounds are fully capable of damaging children’s brains.

And of course, these kinds of pesticides are used with abandon. Organophosphates are so dangerous that top researchers are now calling for a total ban on these toxins, due to their potential to harm children.
Pesticides linked to brain damage, low IQ

As Waking Times reports, many studies have linked Chlorpyrifos, an organophospate, to brain damage in children. Dow Chemical Company first started making Chlorpyrifos in 1965.

Like other organophosphates, Chlorpyrifos targets the central nervous system by ..."

To be honest, when I'm shopping I look for clearance items, often they are half off. Yogurt is good for 30 days past expiry, when it expires its half price, but luckily most of the population don't know its still good. Coffee and tea pretty much keep forever.

Sometimes you can save money by going to deal sites like Fat Wallet. I like to shop for sales too, there are apps that let you compare prices from all the grocery stores now like Flipp. You can also save money by sending in your grocery receipt to something like Checkout51.

Vegetables, the same thing, I get them clearance, stuff like Apples have been picked a year ago anyways. I use them for juicing mainly. If you eat them in the first week you are still ok I find.

Anyways, there is some info to save money on your food budget, hope it helps. Food is probably the biggest expense after your rent or mortgage.
