Occupy Wall Street and the Media Smear Campaign

2 11 2011

Anyone who has watched the news in the past month has heard of Occupy Wall Street, the protest movement that is rocking the nation. The movement has given the working class one voice, united against corporate greed and it’s influence on government policy. The Movement has become big enough to garner media attention. The media coverage of Occupy Wall Street has not all been positive, and in the beginning of the protests was non-existent. Many media outlets have launched an all out smear campaign. The smear campaign is mostly from, but not limited to more conservative media. Of course this should be of no surprise, since most media outlets are major corporations. In the beginning the media tried to make it look like the protestors were uneducated hippies.

We Are the 99 Percent Whether You like it or Not

20 10 2011

What started out as a single protest by a group calling themselves the 99 Percent, has spread across the country and around the world. The Occupy Movement is expressing the disenfranchisement that the working class, both blue collar and white-collar, feel towards what they see as the rich white minority. Fox news has tried to soil the name of the movement by claiming that the protestors are the “liberal fringe” and don’t pay taxes. They want to paint the protestors as dirty Hippies that don’t know what they are talking about, or even what their message is. Of course I would expect a news channel owned by Rupert Murdoch, one of the richest tycoons in the world to spread such a message.
It is no surprise that the rich, and the media that they own would try to demonize protests that are aimed at them. Did they think they could continue to screw over the majority of the population and meet with no resistance? A large percent of the protestors do pat taxes and are very well educated. the Occupy Movement is decrying corporate greed and an extreme disproportionate distribution of wealth.

Biodiesel Is the Future

18 05 2011

I am so excited!!!! I have been learning about  biodiesel,  the fuel of tomorrow. Well, actually it is the fuel of yesterday. What we call biodiesel should just be called diesel, since it was the fuel that Rudolph Diesel designed his engine to run on. What we call diesel should be called petro-diesel. Biodiesel can be made from all sorts of things. It can be made from inedible plants, from very abundant plants like seaweed, it can even be made from your leftovers. Yes, all organic oils can be used to make biodiesel.

So, what is biodiesel? It Is a  fuel made from natural oils such as vegetable oil or animal  fat. What is great is that any vehicle that runs on diesel will run on biodiesel with no modifications. But aren’t diesels slow? This used to be true, but not anymore. They now make cars with diesel engines just as fast as gasoline powered cars.  Diesel  engines are also more fuel-efficient.

The trucks, trains and, ships that transport cargo all run on diesel. So, even if these vehicles switched to biodiesel, it would cut pollution down a lot. Well, what if I don’t care about pollution or the environment? You still would benefit from switching to biodiesel, unless you like paying almost 5 dollars for a gallon of gasoline. We would no longer dependent on foreign oil. This  means  that there would be fewer wars over oil, and would also help  decrease out national debt because we could provide our own fuel. There are just so many benefits to biodiesel.

But if biodiesel is made from Vegetable oil , won’t it cause food shortages, and bring up the price of food? No, that is the  beauty of  biodiesel, It can be made from used cooking oil from restaurants, and the oil doesn’t have to be vegetable oil or  animal fat, it can be made from any organic oils.

One argument that the Oil companies make is that there is no money in biofuels. This is so not true. My cousins husband works for a company that processes Used cooking oil into  biodiesel and they have money up the wazoo. Maybe that’s the problem. The oil companies don’t like the Idea of losing their monopoly on fuel, so they spread all this disinformation. Biodiesel is clean, safe and economical. Biodiesel  is the future.





Stupid FDA, Stupid Big Dairy farms picking on the Amish

I’m madder than a mad cow. I’m mad mad mad mad mad. Oh yeah, did I mention that I am mad? The FDA, an agency that we all Know is bribed by the Big industrial farms, has  had an Amish farmer arrested  for selling  raw milk  across state lines. Since when has unpasteurized milk become an Illegal substance? No one got sick from the milk. Now  all things natural have become off-limits.

This is another attempt by the FDA, and corporate farms to  keep small farms from making a living. If it wasn’t for the Corporate farms lobbying(bribing) politicians, this would not be a legal issue. The government want complete control of the food supply so they can have complete control of us.It’s funny how Big farms can use growth hormones and steroids and all kinds of unhealthy stuff on their cows to help them profit more, but it is Illegal for a farmer to sell natural milk. We are losing our freedom.





When are Americans Going to stop being the Corporations’ Bitches

17 05 2011

By Christopher Jay Thompson.

I am sick of living under the Iron fist of corporate rule. It has gotten to the point where major corporations have more power than governments. We think that our current president, but the president is the same president who has been in power since the end of the 1800’s. That president is big Oil, its cabinet members are the coal industry, Wal-Mart, Fox, Disney,Sony, the Auto industry and other corporate Entities.

When are Americans going to realise that they have been made into the Bitches of the Major corporations, mainly the corporations that control the supply of energy. Yet any time anyone wants to limit the power of the All powerful corporate elite they are called communists and Un-American. I think the all-encompassing power of wall street is un-american.

The corporate world is the biggest threat to our freedom than anything else in the world, but we have become so dependant on our corporate masters that we cannot see through the lies. Why are Americans so willing to bend over and take one for the team. This country was built on the Idea of personal freedom, not free enterprise.
We have gotten to the point that we don’t even Know how to grow food or make our own clothing. We would be helpless without the corporations. They take advantage of that fact. Maybe we need to relearn to do thing for ourselves so we won’t be so dependent on them in order to survive. It is cool to have interesting things like cars, computers and tv’s, but it isn’t cool to be dependent on greedy companies in order to survive. Slavery is slavery regardless of the form it takes. I believe it is time to stop being slaves.
