Whole Foods “Humane” Turkey Deception

November 19, 2017 at 4:39 pm




Diestel turkeys live in horrific conditions, receive antibiotics, hormones and “severely toxic chemicals” prohibited by FDA, new lawsuit reveals

A lawsuit filed this week against one of Whole Food’s top turkey suppliers alleges turkeys are being fraudulently marketed as “humane” and “hormone, antibiotic, and chemical-free.”

Diestel turkeys actually live in horrific conditions and routinely receive synthetic hormones, antibiotics and other drugs strictly prohibited by the FDA, like chloramphenicol, which is known to have “severe toxic effects in humans,” alleges an amended complaint filed Nov. 13 by the animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere.

Investigation Reveals Tyson Foods as #1 Culprit in Largest “Dead Zone” on Earth

November 1, 2017 at 9:25 pm




Nearly 9000 square-miles of ocean along the Gulf Coast is uninhabitable by marine life. Loaded with agricultural toxins and devoid of oxygen, it’s the largest “dead zone” in US history, and last summer it got even bigger.

We’ve known the cause of the ecological “dead zone” for decades — fertilizer run-off from Big Agriculture via the Mississippi River — but a new investigative report identifies the number one polluter by name, Tyson Foods.

The Population Bomb is Ticking… If We Don’t Stop Having Children NOW, Most of us Will Starve To Death

October 2, 2017 at 9:30 pm

With the population doubling every couple of generations, and our petroleum-based food supply on the downward slope, things are about to get ugly unless we voluntarily start having one or fewer children immediately

“The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the exponential function.” Al Bartlett




Population overshoot occurs when a population temporarily exceeds the long-term carrying capacity of its environment. The result is a sudden, unexpected, population collapse or die-off.

Overshoot often occurs when a species’ natural predators are removed from the environment (think wolves and deer), causing the species to multiply rapidly, over-consume their food supply and then suddenly experience mass starvation.

Having eradicated the vast majority of our predators, humans may have outsmarted all other species on Earth, but can we outsmart Mother Nature?

The Inconvenient Truth About Monogamy

It’s not natural.

Before you blow your top, hear me out.

I’m not saying it’s “not natural” in the sense religionists say homosexuality is “not natural.” I’m saying it in the same sense I would say eating grains is “not natural” – meaning you can do it, it’s just not going to be easy.

Laziness is Not a Sin

May 7, 2017 at 7:22 pm

If your family was like mine, you probably grew up believing laziness is not only a sin, but one of seven deadly sins.




Maybe it wasn’t taught directly — or maybe your family wasn’t even religious — but the subconscious belief that lying around doing nothing is “bad” or “wrong” or a “waste of time” is the unspoken premise of all of civilization.

To have idle hands or an idle mind is considered sloth – “a habitual disinclination to exertion” – and sloth has been damnable ever since Adam and Eve got kicked out of Paradise.

Once Upon a Time There Was No Such Thing as Work

Why “work” was play for hunter-gatherers




In our capitalistic culture, our worth as individuals is measured by how hard we work. From a young age, we learn our value is determined by our productivity.

The only time it’s acceptable not to work is on Sundays or vacation. Even then, there’s very little rest and relaxation happening. By the time we finally unwind, it’s time to jump back into the rat race.

When people argue overpopulation is a myth, their arguments typically revolve around the amount of “open” space on earth not yet occupied by humans.pewsg80mndk1p441pyjd

They say things like – “Ever flown across the country and seen all the vacant land between New York and California?” or “Did you know every single person on Earth could fit into the State of Texas?”
