Would you believe that 93% of Americans have “Plastic” in their blood and Urine? How about if I told you that 42% of the rivers tested in America turned up positive for Bisphenol-A or BPA a man made epoxy resin used in the production of most all consumer plastic goods sold in America. These goods include things we use on a daily basis; money, water, food, clothes, toothbrushes, DVD & CD’s, eyeglasses and food containers. The BPA Chemical leaches out of these products and into your system. The worst of it comes from microwaved foods and heated beverages like baby formula. Let’s take a look at what our government regulatory agencies have to say about Bisphenol-A and its effects on both our environment and our bodies.

What would you do if you came across someone on the street that had not had anything to eat for several days? Would you give that person some food? Well, the next time you get that impulse you might want to check if it is still legal to feed the homeless where you live. Sadly, feeding the homeless has been banned in major cities all over America. Other cities that have not banned it outright have put so many requirements on those that want to feed the homeless (acquiring expensive permits, taking food preparation courses, etc.) that feeding the homeless has become “out of reach” for most average people. Some cities are doing these things because they are concerned about the “health risks” of the food being distributed by ordinary “do-gooders”. Other cities are passing these laws because they do not want homeless people congregating in city centers where they know that they will be fed. But at a time when poverty and government dependence are soaring to unprecedented levels, is it really a good idea to ban people from helping those that are hurting?
This is just another example that shows that our country is being taken over by control freaks. There seems to be this idea out there that it is the job of the government to take care of everyone and that nobody else should even try.
But do we really want to have a nation where you have to get the permission of the government before you do good to your fellow man?
It isn’t as if the government has “rescued” these homeless people. Homeless shelters all over the nation are turning people away each night because they have no more room. There are many homeless people that are lucky just to make it through each night alive during the winter.
Sometimes a well-timed sandwich or a cup of warm soup can make a world of difference for a homeless person. But many U.S. cities have decided that feeding the homeless is such a threat that they had better devote law enforcement resources to making sure that it doesn’t happen.
This is so twisted. In America today, you need a “permit” to do almost anything. We are supposed to be a land of liberty and freedom, but these days government bureaucrats have turned our rights into “privileges” that they can revoke at any time. …
The bureaucrats are officially out of control.
In America today, it seems like almost everything is illegal.
One church down in Louisiana was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a government permit.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I sure am going to give a cup of cold water to someone if they need it whether I have a permit or not.
It is as if common sense has totally gone out the window in this nation.
Over in New Hampshire, a woman is being sued for planting flowers in her own front yard.
This is the kind of thing that makes me glad that I have moved to a much more rural location. People in the country tend to be much more relaxed.
Sadly, those that love to micro-manage others continue to get the upper hand in America. Back in January, 40,000 new laws went into effect all over America. The politicians continue to hit us with wave after wave of regulations and laws with no end in sight.
All of this is making America a very unpleasant place in which to live.
The 2nd Dark Age is already here.
” This Executive Order was posted on the WhiteHouse.gov web site on Friday, March 16, 2012, under the name National Defense Resources Preparedness. In a nutshell, it’s the blueprint for Peacetime Martial Law and it gives the president the power to take just about anything deemed necessary for “National Defense”, whatever they decide that is. It’s peacetime, because as the title of the order says, it’s for “Preparedness”. A copy of the entire order follows the end of this story.
Under this order the heads of these cabinet level positions; Agriculture, Energy, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Defense and Commerce can take food, livestock, fertilizer, farm equipment, all forms of energy, water resources, all forms of civil transporation (meaning any vehicles, boats, planes), and any other materials, including construction materials from wherever they are available. This is probably why the government has been visiting farms with GPS devices, so they know exactly where to go when they turn this one on. … “
” Second Dark Age. Death of the USA
Return of the family.
And the commune crapheads sit and whine
While the commons near my birthplace is now a police college
It’s a second dark age. “

They are at it again. Just as they had rigged the Bush election, they are now doing the same against Ron Paul. However, we need to be careful, as they are hoping that we will have been conditioned and accustomed enough to accept rigged elections by now, we all need to stand up and get much more assertive this time around and be prepared to fight back harder than ever before.
Our American friends have not had a fairly-elected president since Kennedy.
It will not be long before the public catch on to the fact that they are (and have been) duped.
Anyone remember that “Qaddafi was also working to change payment for Libya’s oil away from the US dollar to the gold African dinar. This move prompted Sarkozy to call Libya ‘a threat to the financial security of Mankind’.” (https://escapeesblog.wordpress.com/2011/09/12/libya-and-gaddafi-the-truth-you-are-not-supposed-to-know/).
Recent history repeating itself.
Iran Is Celebrating the New Year by Ditching the Dollar
March 20th is a holiday in Iran. It is called NOWRUZ and it’s the equivalent of New Year’s Day. On the Iranian calendar it ties in with the vernal equinox (the first day of spring). The holiday’s roots are based in the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism and it is considered the biggest holiday of the year in the country.
Generally the Persian New Year is celebrated by a symbolic purging of the home and spiritual representation of creation and fertility. Families get together and traditional feasts are consumed.
This year, though Iran is doing something a little different to celebrate the New Year and the result may be fireworks of a less than celebratory nature.
This year Iran is changing it’s policy for payment of oil. Iran will not longer accept the US dollar and will be looking for other currencies and commodities instead.
Since 1971, OPEC oil has been exclusively quoted in dollars. Because of this oil (aka gasoline) is currently cheaper in the United States than in any other country in the world.
Since the IRAN OIL BOURSE opened in 2005, Iran has been actively seeking alternative currencies and commodities in trade for the oil produced there. The Bourse has directly approached Japan, Russia and China to negotiate payments in other currencies.
Not coincidentally, in 2005, the same time the Iran Oil Bourse was formed, George Bush began imposing sanctions on Iran via EXECUTIVE ORDER 13382 – Blocking Property of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferators and Their Supporters.
In 2010 the United States increased its efforts to force Iran’s compliance by passing the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act of 2010. This increased all sanctions that had currently been passed in an effort to cripple the Iranian economy. Sanctions included punishing large investors in Iran’s petroleum business, punishing companies that traded with Iran by turning their oil into gasoline as well as companies providing shipping, insurance and financial services for the purpose of the import of gasoline into Iran, and prohibits other foreign exchange, banking and property transactions.
Basically, the US is behaving like an organized crime family and wants to put a stranglehold on the country’s economy, only allowing breath if Iran goes back to accepting the USD. They say it’s because of nukes, though, because that is more socially acceptable.
The efforts of the United States seem to have only increased Iran’s efforts to be free of the US dollar. Iran has set the date of March 20, 2012 as the day that they will only accept the yen, the rupee, the euro, the yuan and baskets of currency (currency portfolios).
This stand threatens to crumble the USD’s status as the world’s reserve currency, which could be the final nail in the coffin of the American economy. If the USD is no longer the OPEC measure for oil prices, we will no longer pay the lowest price in the world for gasoline. Our already wheezing economy will collapse as the price of fuel sky-rockets, effectively increasing the price of everything else.
Of course, Americans don’t like sending their sons and daughters off to be killed in a war over money/oil. That’s why the US is taunting Iran by flying surveillance aircraft in their airspace, sending troops to all surrounding areas and insinuating carriers into the Strait of Hormuz, Iranian waters, despite Iran’s calls for them to stop.
The United States is trying to trigger an incident that will allow a direct attack on Iran. If they can’t trigger such an incident they may well create one and just blame it on Iran. From our President we will hear speeches full of bluster and false patriotism. The United States doesn’t want to look like the bad guy, so they are attempting to provoke a reaction from Iran by encroaching very uncomfortably on Iran’s space. Our media propaganda machine is preparing us by informing us of the terrifying threat of Iran’s potential weapons of mass destruction. This is all in an effort to get the American people behind this attack.
March 20 is approaching quickly and the United States is running out of time. Iran has come up with ways to work around the US sanctions and is planning to claim independence from the USD on their new year.
The United States will assert dominance over Iran before this happens, and with alarming brutality – remember Bush’s shock and awe? We’ll hear from the mainstream media that it’s for our own protection – that a terrorist act was committed against us by Iran – that a nuclear weapon has surfaced and is pointed our way – anything but the real reason.
As I discussed a couple of days ago, a likely date for the attack is March 8, the Jewish holiday of vengeance Purim which also conveniently coincides with the FBI’s planned takedown of the internet. The US, the wealthy, the bankers, AIPAC and the elite must stop Iran from making this change or the economy that is precariously stacked up like a pile of Jenga blocks will topple. The wealthy 1% has even more to lose than the rest of us.
Don’t be fooled. It may be too late to stop this from happening but be aware of the real reason.
Again, the United States will be trading blood for oil.
