There are many secrets about food and its methods of preparation, but none as sinister, perhaps, as the secret the U.S. Food and Drug Administration wants to keep from you. That secret involves genetically modified organisms in food crops. The food is altered at gene levels, but is not labeled as such on packaging and in advertisements for raw, prepared or packaged foods, as specified by FDA regulations.
Late last week, the boss sent me an email reminding me of my Thanksgiving-week deadline changes. “Perhaps you could write about something you’re thankful for.” Duly inspired, I decided to employ some of the lessons I managed to retain from my days as a history major and raise a drumstick to a list of five entities that made Thanksgiving a holiday.
It’s clear the elites won’t be satisfied until all the world is in a conflagration or subjection. That is the takeaway from Tuesday’s GOP debate.
Much to no one’s surprise, the supercommittee turned out to be anything but super. There was never any real intention by the members of the committee to make cuts of any significance.
I know remakes are all the rage in Hollywood these days, but when did former President Jimmy Carter get written into the script at the White House? It has been three decades since American voters canceled Carter’s show. I hardly expected a comeback three decades after it went off the air. To be fair, President Barack Obama is more Carter’s evil twin than his reanimated political corpse.
Listening to the mainstream government propaganda arm corporatist media, one would think Ron Paul doesn’t exist; or, if he does, there’s no way he’s going to be the Republican nominee. But something happened on the way to the media blackout party. Ron Paul’s message is winning despite the concerted effort by the political and media elites to act like he’s not really there.
Surely, no one could be silly enough to think that a nation built on free enterprise would ever allow a group of unelected lawyers to start making decisions about their doctors. And surely, no President in his right mind would risk the proverbial smack upside the head which would result from a Supreme Court review of the Constitutionality of a second attempt to dig nationalized healthcare out of its grave.
Left-leaning interest groups critical to get-out-the-vote efforts aren’t of the same mind on Keystone XL, and President Barack Obama could not afford to offend environmentalists opposed to anything that encourages the use of fossil fuels. So Obama has decided that Keystone XL must go away until after his re-election campaign climaxes.
Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder stopped by the Senate Judiciary Committee to discuss Operation Fast and Furious and cemented himself as the most corrupt and incompetent (the smart money is chasing the latter) head of the Department of Justice since Janet Reno stumbled back to Florida.
In a column for lewrockwell.com, Karen Kwiatkowski writes that she believes the GOP hierarchy is secretly hoping that President Barack Obama wins a second term. Such an outcome would “rally the party troopers and inspire order” lost by the growing Tea Party movement. It’s a theory that would explain many things.
