Helping Big Banks & Corporations

Another reason why folks should be really wondering why our governments are helping out these big banks.  Through my eyes the government has no right in spending our tax dollars to help these banks.  I know this is in the USA but it is happening here in Canada too.   Take a look, then read Thomas Jefferson’s  quote on how he feels of helping banks.  Hmm, I wonder if I am related in some small way?  My opinion only.

Barack Obama’s Administration will announce its latest economic rescue plan today by offering private investors vast government-backed loans to buy as much as $1 trillion of toxic assets from America’s stricken banks.

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be.”

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation then by deflation, the banks and the corporations will grow up around them, will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.”

“I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our constitution – taking from the federal government their power of borrowing.”

-Thomas Jefferson

Flags & Shirts Made Off Shore Hmm……….

First our Flags being made off shore and now our shirts that our police wear. I got to tell you, this Dalton gang sure are a piece of work.  I am sure there is a Canadian company that would love to have the order to make shirts and flags right here in Canada. My Opinion Only.

Premier Dalton McGuinty admitted Friday it was a mistake for Ontario’s legislative assembly to start buying provincial flags that were made in China, but defended the decision to buy Asian-made shirts for Ontario Provincial Police uniforms.

Chocolate Is Good For You, Pure Cocoa That Is

I have always figured a nice hot cup of cocoa is sure good for what ails a feller. Take a look at this article.

Studies have now proven that chocolate is good for you. It is rich in antioxidants and has many health benefits, including lowering blood sugar and cholesterol. Cocoa comes from the Theobromo cacao plant. Half of the cocoa bean is made of fat in the form of cocoa butter. Cocoa powder is the edible non-fat part of the cacao bean. Most of the fats in chocolate are saturated, but it also contains lots of the “good” fats: oleic and linoleic acids.

Honeybees Are Disappearing

The first alarm was sounded in autumn 2006. Honeybees are disappearing across the United States and Canada, with half of the States affected and beekeeper losing 30 to 90 percent of colonies; one beekeeper with 1200 colonies expected 9 to survive the winter. The problem began more than two years ago and has intensified in recent months. The bees simply vanish relatively suddenly, with little or no dead adults in or near the colonies, leaving behind the queen and a few young. In cases where the colony appears to be actively collapsing the workforce seems to be made up of young adult bees, insufficient to feed the brood, but are reluctant to consume provided feed. This “colony collapse disorder” (CCD) is particularly devastating for growers of fruits and vegetables, as they depend on insect pollinators.

My theories is that most of these bees are dying because of all the pesticide use that we are using today. Just common sense that if you spray your crops with insecticides, you are going to kill bees too and make them sick. Not to mention what it is doing to us humans who are eating the fruits and vegetables.  My Opinion Only

Salt Water Chicken, Not Good

The way things are going pretty soon there won’t be anything safe to eat anymore. Sure a shame the road some of us humans have chosen for us working folks. My Opinion Only.

People shouldn’t be paying chicken prices for saltwater. But some unscrupulous poultry producers add as much as 15 percent saltwater—and then have the gall to label such pumped-up poultry products “natural.” Some in the industry euphemistically call chicken soaked or injected with salt water “enhanced chicken.” Of course this isn’t really about enhancing chicken, it’s about enhancing profits. Someone’s clucking all the way to the bank.

Adding injury to insult is the fact that these “enhanced” products are much less healthy for you than the natural, unenhanced versions, because they contain up to five times as much sodium. Sodium, of course, tends to increase blood pressure and the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Americans & Canadians consume way too much sodium as it is, and the last thing we need is more sodium tucked surreptitiously into otherwise low-sodium foods.
