If you care about eating healthy food, having a real choice in what you eat and want to see something done about the disturbing increase in incidents of cancer and other debilitating diseases; take part in this event.

If you don't like the idea of an obscenely wealthy corporation which has made a large fortune in war as well as manufacturing and selling chemical weapons like Agent Orange, DDT and Roundup pesticide taking control of our food supply, you need to be a part of this historic event.

If you're sick and tired of not being able to afford real food instead of having to settle for toxic food that contributes to a myriad of dangerous illnesses, you need to show up at the March Against Monsanto event nearest you.

If you show up at ONE single protest your entire life, this is the one.

Monsanto is truly the epitome of an evil entity that cares not one whit about anything except money and power. Some people believe that to demand action against an "evil" corporation is being an alarmist. That is not the case with Monsanto. They have a long history of making incredible amounts of money by selling toxic products that create sickness and misery. They are sickness profiteers.

They also spend millions of dollars every year to purchase cleverly manipulated "research" that supposedly documents the "safety" of their products. They purchase corrupt members of governments all over the world to enact legislation that enriches already wealthy executives while leaving death and disease in their wake. They purchase articles in mainstream media publications that tell us everything is OK, continue to eat and drink toxins. So they can collect more of our wealth.

This is unacceptable.

Even if you don't believe that genetically engineered food products and toxins in our diet are that bad, then think about this: Monsanto (with the help of a handful of other notorious companies) are literally attempting to take control of our food supply.

What will happen when we can't buy healthy organic seeds anymore and can only buy their genetically modified seeds? What will happen when there are no more family farms and all "food" is manufactured by machines and faceless employees that have no stake in the procedures used - practices that involve animal torture and the bypassing of environmental regulations designed for our benefit?

If we continue to allow corporations to dump toxins into our soil, water and air; there will be no such thing as organic food anymore. How can we grow healthy food without nutritious soil or clean water and with an atmosphere that rains poisonous chemicals down on us?

Now is the time to do something. Now is the time to take a stand and decide that not only are we all deserving of nutritious food, so are our children and their children.

Years from now, when you're sitting in a chair and your grandchildren ask you what YOU did back when evil corporate executives were poisoning the planet, what are you going to say? Will you simply say that you were too busy taking care of your own personal business to assure a healthy planet for future generations? Think about it...

Stuck in a Fog

I’ve been a little absent lately. And not just from this blog, but from life. The past few days have felt in slow motion. Like I can barely articulate words because it just takes too much energy. 300 more words
