Tonight @ 8:30 pm edt is the annual Earth Hour so make your candling plans accordingly and chalk one up for global climate change. Check out the Earth Hour website for more information.
Meanwhile, just when I think my list of frets about this changing world is as long as it can reasonably get, along comes What in the World Are They Spraying? and I'm up in the air over something else again: SAG.
You know how the New World Order types (the ones wanting to impose global chaos so we'll accept any serf system they have in mind - for serfs who are still around) bombard us with 'satisfy your senses' messages and enticements in the media?
A society of folk who careen from one satisfaction to another is a society that notices only what is right in front of its nose, when all the while a variety of events and results are happening just outside their the fields of vision. Things that would alarm if noticed.
In that spirit, I recommend that you to read the above article concerning out-of-sight-out-of-mind SAG. And remember to Look Up and don't accept what you see as someone else's prerogative over your and your descendants' very existences - for those are what plutocratic string-pullers have placed on the line.
One of my favorite resources for information or news about the global eco-system is Living On Earth. Fixing Earth's climate is a favored topic there and today on the radio program they're featuring chef Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution and interviewing him. Now I don't know if you've been watching the TV show where the British Mr. Oliver goes into US schools and turns their menus into decent grub, but I have. And I appreciate it.
It just began airing so you can catch up if you've missed it.
Yet no eye opener is needed here about processed 'foods' but those busy satisfying their cravings for foods laced with mace, sugar, salt, and who-knows-what-else are in process of having their taste buds re-educated by Mr. Oliver! Of course, the schools' budgets are not up to the challenge so I'm not sure where the show is going with Oliver's Food Revolution unless towns he visits decide to make important changes after he moseys into the sunset and the camera lights go down.
But I do hope the spotlight helps. Feeding our school kids nourishing chow would go along way toward scholastic achievement along with the many health benefits this would bestow...too numerous to list.
One of the craziest days my ears ever perked up over concerning Politics was the day the media began reporting that President Ronald Reagan's new adjustment in balancing America's school menus was that ketchup is a vegetable. How's that for Orwellian?
Or, as I adore saying: I knew it was you, Reagan.
