When the State Medically Rapes You for the “Greater Good”!

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Jordan K…

Jordan K.: The Toll of the Anti-Vaccination Movement, in One Devastating Graphic:
http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-mh-antivaccination-movement-20140120-story.html

This guy is suggesting you shouldn’t have the right to decide if your kids are vaccinated or not!
“The lesson of all this is that vaccination is not an individual choice to be made by a parent for his or her own offspring. It’s a public health issue, because the diseases contracted by unvaccinated children are a threat to the community.”

This guy, or any of you for that matter, tries to force a needle in my child that I don’t agree with and you’re gonna see something far worse than a threat to the community.

Rayn: When the State medically rapes you, it’s for the “greater good”! 😉

Luis V.: Nobody forces you, if you want your kid in day care or school it is necessary. What is your beef with vacinations?

Rayn: “Necessity is the argument of tyrants, it is the creed of slaves.” – William Pitt

Luis V.: LoL ok.

Jordan K.: “The lesson here is that vaccination is not an individual choice to be made by a parent…” my beef is with the article suggesting that I shouldn’t have a choice. Currently any child can attend school without being vaccinated by claiming religious beliefs. In 2014, religious beliefs will grant your child freedom from vaccinations but your personal choices won’t.

Luis V.: Why would you put your child in harms way by not vaccinating them? That’s up there with those people that refuse medical help for their children on the grounds of religion. I don’t understand the objective of denying your child vaccines?

Jordan K.: Then why are dozens of vaccines optional?

Jordan K.: Putting my child in harm’s way would be pumping him full of mercury for a virus when the death rate for said virus is no higher than the common cold. This is my informed and well researched stance, and I would appreciate it if other people gave me the respect that my education has earned and allow me to decide what is and isn’t harmful for my own child.

Rayn: Individual Sovereignty, The Non-Aggression Principle, and Voluntaryism, for the win! Without Informed consent, even so-called “medical procedures” merely represent illegitimate acts of aggression against the bodily integrity of the Individual.

Luis V.: Well my mom is an RN and my wife works with kids. It is not manditory until you go to school or day care. My wife has a cousin whos sister in law was into that holistic shit and she refused to vaccinate her kid. Kid came down with whooping caugh and it almost killed him. All because she was afraid of a fucken vaccine. Then to top it off, my ladies cousin had a new born that had to be put on heavy antibiotics to prevent him from coming down with the same shit.

Jordan K.: Then you know it’s not mandatory for religious children.

Luis V.: Sorry bro but you are not a doctor, nurse, or practice medicine so I would not take your advice on this for my child. I respect your opinion but I beleive you are wrong. (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)

Monsanto Continues to Poison the Planet, Unabated!

Monsanto Buys Leading Bee Research Firm After Being Implicated in Bee Colony Collapse:
http://www.naturalnews.com/035688_Monsanto_honey_bees_colony_collapse.html

(NaturalNews) Amid all the controversy over genetically-modified (GM) crops and their pesticides and herbicides decimating bee populations all around the world, biotechnology behemoth Monsanto has decided to buy out one of the major international firms devoted to studying and protecting bees. According to a company announcement, Beeologics handed over the reins to Monsanto back on September 28, 2011, which means the gene-manipulating giant will now be able to control the flow of information and products coming from Beeologics for colony collapse disorder (CCD).

Since 2007, Beeologics has been studying CCD, as well as Israeli Acute Paralysis Virus (IAPV), for the purpose of coming up with intervention-based ways to mitigate these conditions. And based on the way the company describes both CCD and IAPV on its website, Beeologics has largely taken the approach that intervention, rather than prevention, is the key to solving the global bee crisis.

My Commentary: Monsanto, the top ten chemical company that brought us Agent Orange, the Bovine Growth Hormone, Aspertame, PCBs, Roundup herbicide, Ritalin, “Terminator seeds,” and the majority of GMOs, WILL CONTINUE TO POISON THE EARTH, UNABATED! If you don’t like it, you’re OBVIOUSLY against SCIENCE and PROGRESS, and should have your head examined by a doctor.

Ammonia-Gas-Sprayed “Pink Slime” Padded “Beef”: It’s What’s for Dinner!

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

“Beef”

“Beef”

70 Percent of Ground Beef at Supermarkets Contains “Pink Slime”:
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/03/70-percent-of-ground-beef-at-supermarkets-contains-pink-slime/

() Gerald Zirnstein grinds his own hamburger these days. Why? Because this former United States Department of Agriculture scientist and, now, whistleblower, knows that 70 percent of the ground beef we buy at the supermarket contains something he calls “pink slime.”

“Pink slime” is beef trimmings. Once only used in dog food and cooking oil, the trimmings are now sprayed with ammonia so they are safe to eat and added to most ground beef as a cheaper filler.

It was Zirnstein who, in an USDA memo, first coined the term “pink slime” and is now coming forward to say he won’t buy it.

“It’s economic fraud,” he told ABC News. “It’s not fresh ground beef. … It’s a cheap substitute being added in.”

My Commentary: Ammonia-gas-sprayed “pink slime” padded “beef.” It’s what’s for dinner!

Factory Farming, and Corrupt, Corner-Cutting, Corporate Capitalism:

Buy Organic Because It’s “Trendy,” or Because It’s Healthier?

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Rayn: About to make some Organic Five County Espresso!

Trader Joe's Organic Fair Trade Five Country Espresso Blend

Trader Joe’s Organic Fair Trade Five Country Espresso Blend

Bram D.: Sorry but you just reminded me of this:
http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2008/01/19/6-organic-food/ :p

Rayn: Amusing, Bram! However, my husband and I seek out and purchase our organic food together! Yet, he’s African-American and Native America (and I would never be foolish enough to identify as “white”), so… And, I don’t know about the pretentious, half-stepping, city-slicker “white” people mentioned in the article you posted, but I was born in a rural area, across the street from a water kill, and down the dirt road from a cow pasture! I know EXACTLY what COW SHIT smells like, and what REAL FARMS look like! Growing up, I have maintained MANY a backyard garden – fertilized, and also organic – with my parents, my uncles, my grandparents, and also my friends! I have also maintained many compost piles, which is exactly where the grinds of the espresso pictured above will go once they are used! And, it is MUCH BETTER to compost with ORGANICS, as neurotoxic pesticides and herbicides DISRUPT the decomposition process! I restlessly research organic companies, especially those with livestock, and do MY VERY BEST, within my budget, to avoid the fraudsters I discover (i.e. “Horizon,” the organic milk company that uses milk pumping machines, instead of farm hands). I am also sure to go beyond the “organic” seal when purchasing eggs, requiring them to say “cage-free” or “free-range,” and “vegetarian,” (because companies can still label eggs as “organic,” even if the hen has been cannibalistically fed chicken parts, so long as the chicken parts are “organic”)! If I had HALF the money that the rich “white” people I see shopping at Whole Foods have, rest assured that I would join a CO-OP, and ONLY BUY LOCALLY, from the TRI-STATE AREA, first, then the rest of the USA, second! Aside from this, read the following two sentences from the article you posted, and let me know if you can spot the HUGE contradiction within: “In spite of the fact that most organic food is made by major agribusiness, and they just use it as an excuse to jack up prices, white people will always lose their mind for organic anything. Never mind the fact that if the world were to switch to 100% organic food tomorow, half the earth would die of starvation.” Did you see it? No? Well, read it again! If the organic label is just an “excuse to jack up prices,” then how exactly would “half the earth” allegedly “die of starvation” if we were to all make the “switch to 100% organic food tomorrow”? To even the most uninformed reader, critical thinking would indicate that these two sentences are an indirect admission by the article’s author that, acre for acre, organic farmers actually end up with LOWER CROP YIELDS than farmers using pesticides and fertilizers! In other words, the organic label is not really just an “excuse to jack up prices,” but instead, when comparing two farms of the same size, really just signifies QUALITY over QUANTITY! And, business-wise, there is NOTHING unusual, or MANIPULATIVE, about pricing based on this!

In the same way that stores in the USA increase the prices of merchandise on their shelves in order to account for theft, and high-end restaurants determine plate prices, in part, based on the ability of the establishment to keep certain fresh, yet rare, ingredients on hand everyday, and discard them at the end of the night, organic farmers charge their customers, in part, based on their lost portion of crop. And, contrary to the idea that this is some sort of scam, the math is good because these organic farmers still saved seeds, tilled soil, planted crops, then fed, organically fertilized and watered them for an entire season, even though not all produce was able to be harvested!

Now, in regard to the article’s DISINGENUOUS claim that “if the world were to switch to 100% organic food tomorrow, half the earth would die of starvation”… Completely UNFOUNDED!

For one, the use of toxic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and even antibiotics, is a VERY MODERN INVENTION in comparison to the age-old organic farming of yesteryear, and so, CANNOT BE PROOFLESSLY HERALDED as some sort of dietary “savior” of humanity! There is simply no research to indicate such a bold and sweeping claim! Research indicates that these chemicals are placed into our food supply in order to increase PROFIT, not to keep us all sustained! And, these poisons have had nothing but ILL EFFECTS on the health of the air, the water, the soil, wildlife, and human life, yet corporations continue to use them, even going so far as to rename offending chemicals, so that consumers are not able to readily identify them! They have also lobbied and campaigned for legislation that would prevent more natural companies from using phrases like “hormone-free” on their labels! Obviously, these companies have agendas that outright trump the desire to please their customer-base!

Secondly, the daily consumption of meat is also a VERY MODERN INVENTION, and is TRULY A DECADENT DISPLAY of WASTE, EXCESS and downright CRUELTY! Keep in mind that 80% of the world’s grain supply, which would COMPLETELY END humanity’s FOOD SUPPLY CRISIS, is instead used to sustain the LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY, instead!!!! Once again, HUMAN NEED is NO MATCH for INDUSTRY and CORPORATE CONTROL of ALL LIFE! Read my article on the topic, “The Startling Effects of Going Vegetarian for Just ONE DAY”!

Sorry for the length! I’m sure you weren’t expecting a book, but you pretty much ventured into the realm of one of my Aspergian special interests! If you were neurotypical, I would likely spend the next hour looking for a way to edit my words into a more concise version of what you see here.
