Native Commandments by: Jasper Saunkeah, Cherokee

BJWordPressDivider

Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with respect.
Remain close to the Great Spirit.
Show great respect for your fellow beings.Give assistance and kindness wherever needed.Do what you know to be right.
Look after the well being of mind and body.
Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good.
Be truthful and honest at all times.
Take full responsibility for your actions.
Let us greet the dawn of a new day
when all can live as one with nature
and peace reigns everywhere.

Oh Great Spirit, bring to our brothers
the wisdom of Nature and the knowledge
that if her laws are obeyed
this land will again flourish
and grasses and trees will grow as before.

Guide those that through their councils
seek to spread the wisdom of their leaders to all people.
Heal the raw wounds of the earth
and restore to our soul the richness
which strengthens men’s bodies
and makes them wise in their councils.

Bring to all the knowledge that great cities
live only through the bounty
of the good earth beyond their paved streets
and towers of stone and steel.

Another Anti-Gay Discrimination Bill Introduced, This Time In Missouri


Another state …… gay hatred, discrimination spreading like wild fire!!

The Fifth Column

post image Missouri joins Arizona in introducing anti-gay discrimination bill

TPM LiveWire

Add Missouri to the list of states where GOP lawmakers have introduced “religious freedom” legislation, which gay rights advocates warn would lead to discrimination against LGBT residents.

The Kansas City Star reported that State Sen. Wayne Wallingford (R) filed the bill Monday.

As in Arizona, which has spurred a national debate with its bill, the bill would require that the government have a compelling interest before interfering with a person’s exercise of their religion. The practical impact, according to gay rights advocates, is that anti-gay discrimination would be legitimized.

Wallingford acknowledged that his legislation was intended to protect people and businesses who wish to discriminate against LGBT people, giving the examples of a florist or baker who refused to provide their services in same-sex weddings.

“This is trying to provide a defense in those types of instances,” he said. “We’re…

Where do you think the future of our food supply is headed?

Where is it headed?? Who knows …. another concern. The more I know the more I realized I don’t know that much. There’s so much to learn!!

Rational Opinions Blog

Control Food and you control peopleWhere do you think the future of our food supply is headed?

My thoughts…

  • Most of our country’s food supply system has become extremely commercialized, with the majority of our food being mass-produced, highly processed, and packaged using massive amounts of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, and toxic packaging
  • Large Chemical/Biotech corporations (manufacturers of products like Roundup, Agent Orange, DDT) are taking over our food supply and genetically modifying their seeds to include these pesticides and insecticides in their genetic makeup
  • These same large Chemical/Biotech corporations are buying, hoarding, and patenting all the seeds to be used for our future food supply
  • Big Agri corporate farms are driving our independent and family farmers out of business

I think the future of our food supply is going to be in the hands of

BIG CORPORATION$

who care for nothing but making more and more profits.

MEDICAL CORNER … America’s health ranking!


~~February 25, 2014~~

AmH

~~New Health Rankings: Of 17 Nations, U.S. Is Dead Last~~

Americans are sick and getting sicker. Researchers were surprised to find a “strikingly consistent and pervasive” pattern of poorer health at all stages of life, from infancy to childhood to adolescence to young adulthood to middle and old age.

Compared to people in other developed nations, Americans endure some of the worst rates of heart disease, lung disease, obesity, and diabetes.

What do Americans have in common?

Could it be that 80% of the food we eat has been polluted with genetically modified organisms that have foreign genes forced into their DNA to allow them to withstand heavy dousing with toxic herbicides? Or perhaps it is the fact that much of our so called “food” is actually an EPA registered pesticide?

We’re dying to know!

Without a label, there is no traceability, no accountability and no liability. 

WGMO

We’ve known for years that Americans tend to be overweight and sedentary, and that our health care system, despite being the priciest in the world, produces some less-than-plum results. Health nerds who closely follow the news may even have known that we live shorter lives than people in other rich nations, and that infants in the U.S. die from various causes at far higher rates.

But a fresh report, tapped vast stores of data to compare the health of affluent nations and delivered a worrisome new message: Americans’ health is even worse than we thought, ranking below 16 other developed nations.

Among the most striking of the report’s findings are that, among the countries studied, the U.S. has:

Not that one factor is likely to be able to explain everything. The panelists identified a host of factors: More than other countries, our health care system is fragmented, unaffordable for many people, and short on primary care. Of the countries studied, we have the highest rate of children living in poverty. More of our communities are built around cars, which may discourage exercise.

GMOs explained: public service announcement from the Health Ranger/Natural News

GreenB

Published on Aug 14, 2013

This short, 3-minute video is the perfect way to introduce new people to the subject of GMOs.

The video reveals where GMOs come from, why they’re used and why they cause organ damage and cancer in mammals. It also explains how to avoid GMOs by shopping for USDA certified organic foods.

The short duration of the video makes it perfect for viewing by new people who either aren’t familiar with the problem of GMOs or who don’t want to sit through a long-duration documentary.

Also covered in the short video is the concept of “genetic pollution” — how GMOs threaten the viability of global agriculture by turning the entire planet into a mad science genetics experiment with potentially catastrophic results.

Hello Red Pepper we warned you not to OUT perceived Gays and now you are WANTED for Persecution in the International Criminal Arena

By Melanie Nathan, February 25, 2014.

Screen Shot 2014-02-25 at 3.58.41 PMOn the very day that the President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, assented to the Anti-homosexuality Bill, the publishers, staff and editors of Red pepper Tabloid, Uganda, saw fit, yet again, to publish the faces and names of 200 alleged lesbians, gays and transgender individuals, including those perceived as such. In effect screaming for mob lynching! We are now turning the tables so that should they ever escape Uganda, we will effect an international manhunt. I look forward to the day when their own President turns on them and they in fact do need to run. Its imminent and they have burnt their international bridge. We will not take pity on persecutors.

Save the date
Today is World Spay Day!Today marks the 20th World Spay Day, an annual campaign of The Humane Society of the United States and Humane Society International that shines a spotlight on spay/neuter as a way to save the lives of companion animals, community (feral and stray) cats, and street dogs who might otherwise be put down in a shelter or killed on the street.Getting your pet spayed or neutered can reduce the number of homeless pets killed, improve your pet’s health, reduce some undesirable behaviors, and save on the costs of pet care. Maybe you already knew that, but many people don’t know about the benefits of spay/neuter.

Here are three ways you can celebrate World Spay Day today:

• Check out our infographic and share it with family and friends»

• Find a World Spay Day event in the U.S. or internationally»

• Sponsor a spay or neuter for a pet in need»

Thank you for all you do for animals on World Spay Day and every day,

~~Spay Day USA~~

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Spay Day USA is an annual observance on the last Tuesday of February that was created by the Doris Day Animal League in 1994 to bring attention to the pet overpopulation problem in the USA, and to encourage animal population control by neutering pets. In 2002, the event’s goal was to spay and neuter 200,000 pets across the United States.
Spay Day USA has helped in decreasing the population of street dogs and cats throughout the US, which is very helpful as it decreases the number of unwanted animals. Many are encouraged to participate in this event.
On 2014, in celebration of the 20th anniversary, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Central Florida announced to provide Zeuterin injections to 100 male dogs free of cost. Zeuterin is a compound manufactured by Ark Sciences to provide a painless and non-surgical castration to sterilize male dogs.

Neutering, from the Latin neuter (of neither sex), is the removal of an animal’s reproductive organ, either all of it or a considerably large part. The term is often used in reference to males whereas spaying is often reserved for females. Colloquially, both terms are often referred to as fixing. While technically called castration for males, in male horses, the process is referred to as gelding.

Neutering is the most common sterilizing method in animals. In the United States, most humane societiesanimal shelters and rescue groups urge pet owners to have their pets neutered to prevent the births of unwanted litters, contributing to the overpopulation of unwanted animals in the rescue system.

Modern veterinary practice tends to use the more precise and specific term “de-sexing”.

Spaying is a general term used to describe the ovariohysterectomy of a female animal. Neutering is a general term used to describe the castration of a male animal. However, neutering is often used in reference to both genders. The surgical procedure, performed by a veterinarian, renders the animal incapable of reproducing. Here are answers to some questions you may have about this beneficial procedure.

~~When can I have this procedure done?~~

Both procedures can safely be performed at as early as 8 weeks of age. American Humane Association is a strong proponent of juvenile or pediatric spay/neuter since it is both healthy for pets and effectively reduces pet overpopulation.

~~Why should I have my pet neutered?~~

Animal shelters, both public and private, are faced with an incredible burden: What to do with the overpopulation of dogs and cats that they cannot find homes for? Approximately 3.7 million animals are euthanized at shelters each year, due to the sheer fact that there are not enough willing adopters. Having your pet spayed or neutered ensures that you will not be adding to this tremendous burden.

~~What are some of the health and behavioral benefits?~~

Through neutering, you can help your dog or cat live a happier, healthier, longer life. Spaying eliminates the constant crying and nervous pacing of a female cat in heat. Spaying a female dog also eliminates the messiness associated with the heat cycle.

Neutering of male dogs and cats can prevent certain undesirable sexual behaviors, such as urine marking, humping, male aggression and the urge to roam. If you have more than one pet in your household, all the pets will generally get along better if they are neutered.

A long-term benefit of spaying and neutering is improved health for both cats and dogs. Spaying females prior to their first heat cycle nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer and totally prevents uterine infections and uterine cancer. Neutering males prevents testicular cancer and enlargement of the prostate gland, and greatly reduces their risk for perianal tumors.

Monsanto’s Roundup killing monarch butterflies


Butterflies need our help!!!

Dear Kitty. Some blog

This video is called Complete Life Cycle of the Monarch Butterfly.

From Sylvia Fallon’s Blog in the USA:

As monarch butterflies plummet, it’s time to rethink the widespread use of our nation’s top weedkiller

February 24, 2014

Today NRDC is calling on EPA to re-examine the widespread use of glyphosate, commonly called Roundup, in light of its impacts on monarch butterflies. Glyphosate was last approved by EPA in 1993 before the adoption of genetically modified crops that are tolerant to its use, known as “Roundup Ready” crops. Now, however, Roundup Ready corn and soy dominate the agricultural system and the use of glyphosate has skyrocketed tenfold to 182 million pounds annually. As a result, milkweed – which is the sole food source for monarch butterfly larvae – has all but been eliminated from farm fields across the Midwest.

At the same time that spraying of glyphosate…
