All bad news for the future…
Originally posted on STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC:
French President François Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, negotiated a cease-fire in Ukraine without the involvement of either President Obama or Secretary of State Kerry. The sour grapes coming from The Wall Street Journal Friday reveal the mindset of much of the US establishment. There were two front page articles: “Doubt Clouds Ukraine Truce” top center, and “Cease-Fire Hopes Exceed Expectations” just below. The tone of both, evident from the headlines, is undisguised skepticism. An editorial excoriated the agreement, and Merkel, Hollande, and Poroshenko, for giving away the store. The editorial said it “gives the Kremlin the benefits of establishing a de facto satrap without having to foot the costs of sustaining it or assume political responsibility.”
Let’s assume the Journal’s assessment is on point. Left unsaid was that Merkel and Hollande may well have reached a conclusion that escalating…

What crock of shit. This was pure bullshit. I don’t use this crap and can see that what the NORMlL guy said, is true. They put a bunch of know nothings in prison so we can foot the bill and then why did they wait till harvest to go in???
It is just like Ollie North and the Clinton drug dealership of South Little Rock. Open your eyes and see the big picture. Don’t be duped by the big scary drug bust of these tiny little Mary Jane Fields.
The pesticide scare is even more bullshit and laughable. It pales in comparison to what the Highway dept., the railroad and electric utilities spray every year all around Wisconsin. All that brown shit you see on the sides of the road, rails, and power-lines is from POISON. Kills every liven thing and runs into streams, rivers and ground water. Not to mention the AG herb/pesticides. Huge!!!
This was a propaganda flick just for you. Step right up son and get your tonic here… SEE VIDEO NOW
F*ck patriotism, the flag, the constitution, and candidates; A HARD message to give.

This is how I have felt for longer than I can remember. He is right. My pappy told me… “The best revenge is to live well”. I believe him.

I just remember the old saying, people in glass houses should not throw stones. Not saying I like it, just that it could happen to anyone. There are soooooo many unemployed now that it is not uncommon.
I feel no anger over this issue. it is such a small chunk of the pie that it is a waste of time to bother over. I would be far more concerned that someone would go hungry because of asinine rules and some Napoleonic Dictator administrators of the new, more rigid food policy. When it went to the debit card it cleaned up most of the cheats.
So someone goes hungry because you think someone is getting a little to much food or doesn’t quite deserve their food. With the cards, it is now very difficult to cheat. Frankly, I would like a piece of fresh salmon or a half a KFC chicken too if I were on food stamps.
Because someone gets a chicken breast and fries or a really nice piece of salmon which you don’t think they should have or deserve, maybe that’s the price paid for making sure this baby or that elderly fella and that nursing mom get what they need. I’m good with that.
Rangle, Kennedy and so many others have probably stolen more by a factor of thousands or tens of thousands then someone getting a little extra on their food stamps.
Perspective. Focus on these bastards. Corporate sons-O-bitches, stealing billions and trillions of your hard earned dollars. Pharmaceutical companies. Insurance companies. The Goram Banksters. This is just a short list. You could add hospitals and their overcharging to that list too. These are the people who are robbing you blind. Not some poor person who gets an extra chicken breast or two.
I read this thread and I can see that the anger over what is happening in our country today is gravely misplaced. It is being focused on the lowest level of society when in reality, we should be marching on the gates of Washington and Wall Street with pitch forks and torches.
You could cover all the KFC bought with food stamps with the last vacation Moochelle took. Wake up. Figure it out. Focus on the real criminals. SHIT, the last time Moochelle went to the farmers market in DC, It cost us, the American Tax Payer, 80 THOUSAND DOLLARS and you are all worried about some old lady with a piece of fish. Her last party dress cost more then most folks homes and it was purchased with our money.
Once the money is transfered to the individual, it is theirs to do with as they please. Smart decision or dumb. Why not focus on the POS Asshole Congressmen and senators who are robbing you of not only your cash but your rights as well, not the least to mention the POS in the WH. Focus your ire on those dick heads who have absolutely robbed you blind and do it today with impunity.
Your anger is displaced. The bastards in Congress have every perk imaginable, ON YOUR DIME. They have perks you could not hope to get, up to and including full pension on retirement after one term in office.
Now that shit pisses me off.
They are our servants, not kings and queens. Open your damn eyes and see the truth. Get off the little guys back. Grab your pitchfork and torch and head to Washington.
History has shown that you’re like a dog on a chain when times get tough. Pissed off and frustrated. You get the chance to let it out and you attack the first helpless thing you can find. In this case it is the little guy and you’re kicking him in the gut while he is down.
We are being played. People, you need to see this and focus on those who truly deserve your ire.
FDA thinks it can engage in search and seizure willy nilly.
They’ve already been doing this, of course –
but only at natural food facilities.
A few hours ago, the Food and Drug Administration declared it no longer needs credible evidence to seize food that may be contaminated. Ignoring the Fourth Amendment entirely, the FDA claims that based on mere suspicion that a food product has been contaminated or mislabeled, and that serious illness or death will result, it can hold the food for 30 days while it then looks for evidence. It claims this power under the Food Safety Modernization Act, which President Monsanto, I mean, Obama, signed in January.
Credible evidence no longer applies, it seems.
The Fourth Amendment states:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
“Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.”
That’s often paraphrased as:
“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”
