TSA & The Terrorist Cupcakes !

      I'd like to start this post off with an apology for my slanderous claims about the TSA in my first ever blog post. I was totally wrong about them, & they've proved themselves to be quite an agency for the American people. Time and time again the TSA have showed us their fairness and equality when it comes to procedures.. not to mention freedom of choice !

A wonderful TSA agent providing the freedom of choice (between the selected two choices). What more can you ask?

"Added Freshness" Is Truly Synonymous With "Reduced Health"

     

        Food. I've been avoiding the one big post I truly need to do on food for quite some time now, considering I have so much to say and I'm not one to skimp on resources or information to back my claims up. Though I've been hinting at food issues with some of my posts, (including a self-sustainable town in Britain growing their own organic produce, a public school growing their own organic produce, the FDA approving cloned meat, & one on tomatoes/blood pressure) there's always room for more !
    
      This article concerns labels sporting the statement "for added freshness". If you don't already know what that means or where this is headed, just try to imagine what that could possibly mean. What do you add to a product that makes it 'more fresh'? If your bananas go bad, what do you put on them to reverse their rotting ? Unless I'm missing something here, the answer is nothing. So whatever is added into foods for 'added freshness' would be some unnatural chemical by my guess.. and such it is. Many of these chemicals are so unheard of to us, they are practically foreign in nature.

British Town Grows It's Own Fruits and Vegetables

    Strikingly similar to my last post on a school that grew their own organic food, the title tells you what it's all about. Before I continue, let me just say for a moment why in my opinion it is important to stay healthy and to buy locally/grow your own food and so on.


     I personally feel as though politics relates to all areas of life, because it deals with people and all of those involved. It deals with religion because we have the two separate institutions of church & state. It deals with science because we have (often state-endorsed) vaccines which we know to be harmful. When it comes to food, we realize that due to either extreme stupidity and neglect or conspiracy against the people, we are, especially Americans, being fed complete crap. No thanks to the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) who has done more harm than help in the direction of ensuring the safety of our food. We have to be our own personal FDA.

School Changes Lunch For The Better - Organic AND Local !

           Let me start off by saying that the mess that is slopped down and presented to children in school as "food" is unacceptable. I have seen some of these cafeterias and the foods they serve for myself, as well as the students choices based on what's available. It's a disgrace the way that they're fed. It's no wonder we're infamously the fat & lazy Americans. We see a lot more of this:

And a lot less of this:


             
            Truth be told, I had trouble even finding something that could pass as a 'healthy' lunch on Google. While the first picture may be a stretch... not by much. I encourage anyone with children to see the choices their children are given at school.
