It Is Time!


Because we have a government that only thinks about itself...at ANY and ALL cost instead of the people who created it, to look out for OUR best interests! Well, it is high time we creators do what we did in our 1776 Declaration and restore our Independence!

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America (This is what our Congress is SUPPOSE to do!):

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

Teen Confronts Nancy Pelosi on NSA

She hems an haws and says not much of anything (just like a typical politician) sensible.

And she blames the Bush administration for going too far...but now under this administration the NSA "was just doing the right thing"! How's THAT for sensible reasoning? The NSA violates not only the people's 4th amendment rights, but also CONGRESS member's and she says that the NSA was just doing the right thing? Hmmmmmmmmm.....hopefully, Californians in the 12th district (which includes San Fran) sees that Ms. Pelosi doesn't represent their best interests and will vote her out in the next round...because she, and others like her, is what has gone so terribly wrong with our government up on Capitol Hill!

It's Official....Big Food Sues Vermont

Organic Consumers Association

On Friday, Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) filed a lawsuit in federal the U.S. District Court, State of Vermont, to overturn Vermont’s recently passed GMO labeling law.
The Organic Consumers Association, through our allied lobbying arm, the Organic Consumers Fund, has committed to contributing as much as we can to defend Vermont’s labeling law, while we also fulfill our $500,000 pledge to help Oregon pass a GMO labeling initiative in November.
These battles that pit consumer health and rights against multi-billion corporations belong to all of us. Can you help us raise $250,000 by June 30, so we can defend Vermont and push forward in Oregon and other states? 
After years of good old-fashioned work, and playing by the rules, the grassroots labeling movement achieved its first real victory this year, when Vermont passed the first no-strings-attached law requiring mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms.
But the rules mean nothing to the rich and powerful companies like Monsanto and Coca-Cola, who belong to one of the country’s most powerful lobbying groups—the GMA.
This is the moment of truth for the grassroots GMO labeling movement. If Monsanto and the GMA succeed in overturning Vermont’s GMO labeling law, lawmakers in the other 29 states that are currently considering GMO labeling bills will drop them like hot potatoes.
We can’t let that happen. Your donation today will help us defend Vermont, and pass GMO labeling in Oregon.
Legal experts assure us that Vermont’s labeling law will hold up in court. 
But we can’t win in federal court unless we show up. And that means paying a legal team to defend what’s rightfully ours.
This battle is about your health, and the health of your environment.  This battle is about the rights of states to pass laws to protect their citizens.
This is our battle. And it’s going to take all of us pulling together to win it.
Please consider a donation today to defend Vermont’s historical GMO labeling law, and win in Oregon in November. 
 Thank you!
