Think You’ve been Eating Organic? Think Again

Who’s heard this? “You really should eat organic. It’s much healthier and better for the planet.”

Sure it is.

But maybe it isn’t, and maybe you don’t really even know what you’re eating.

As many know, I am a full blown skeptic of the “organic” lifestyle. I personally think it’s a crock. But hey, if that’s the way you want to live, and waste your hard-earned money, knock yourself out.

But are you really? Are you heading home from Whole Foods, with an electric car filled with life saving organics, or did you just throw you cash away on a scam.

That is the question. And here may be the answer.

Missouri charmer led double life, masterminded one of the biggest frauds in farm history

To be “certified organic” farmers in the U.S. must follow rules spelled out in the USDA National Organic Program.

CHILLICOTHE, MISSOURI:

Like all the best con artists, Randy Constant was a charmer, hard not to like.

Big hearted. Good listener. You’d never have guessed that the father of three, grandfather of five was a liar, cheat and serial philanderer who masterminded one of the biggest and longest-running frauds in the history of American agriculture.

“He was a wonderful person,” an old friend said. “He just had that other side to him.” read more

Courageous States Fighting Back

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

For years we conservatives have been frustrated, and that’s putting it mildly, by the ever-growing size and reach of the federal government.

 

We’ve all asked, both ourselves and each other; what can be done? What can we do to fight back? Can anything be done to beat back the onslaught of the feds – to somehow limit their power over us?

 

Well, until recently we’ve all felt pretty helpless. Then, it seems something happened – as if a light came on or a voice from above exclaimed, “You know… you don’t have to take it. You have the constitutional authority to take the power back. All you have to do is have the courage to use that authority.”

 

And that’s exactly what is happening – either recalling or discovering for the first time – states are realizing that the United States Constitution was written to empower them, not the feds. read more

Confiscation, Here it Comes!

Missouri Democrats Introduce Bill to Confiscate Assault Weapons in 90 Days

 

 

While everyone’s attention is on President Obama and the federal government’s attempt to strip Americans of the Second Amendment rights, politicians at the state level are trying to enact their own anti-gun laws without the general public knowing it.

Missouri Democrats have proposed a bill that would require everyone in the state who owns an assault weapon and/or high capacity magazine to turn them in within 90 days of the passage of the bill.

Sponsored by first term Democrat Rep. Rory Ellinger, from part of St. Louis County, House Bill 545 is a direct violation of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. Like every other screaming frightened liberal, Ellinger and his co-sponsors have no concept of what an assault weapon really is. His bill reads in part: [emphasis mine]

“To amend chapter 571, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to the manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of any assault weapon or large capacity magazine, with a penalty provision.”

“1. As used in this section the following terms shall mean:
