Farmers STILL USING Roundup weed killer EPA won't approve warning labels for Roundup chemical

Image
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The Trump administration says it won't approve warning labels for products that contain glyphosate, a move aimed at California as it fights one of the world's largest agriculture companies about the potentially cancer-causing chemical.


California requires warning labels on glyphosate products — widely known as the weed killer Roundup — because the International Agency for Research on Cancer has said it is "probably carcinogenic."

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency disagrees, saying its research shows the chemical poses no risks to public health. California has not enforced the warning label for glyphosate because Monsanto, the company that makes Roundup, sued and a federal judge temporarily blocked the warning labels last year until the lawsuit could be resolved.

"It is irresponsible to require labels on products that are inaccurate when EPA knows the product does not pose a cancer risk," EPA Administrator Andr…

RoundUp is Still Used by Farmers on Your Kids Food

Image
Humans have been farming for 10,000 years. It was just about 60 years ago that we started industrializing agriculture in the U.S. and around the world. After World War II, chemical companies needed a market for wartime inventions and pesticides were put to work in the fields. In the decades that followed, trade and development policy — coupled with savvy marketing by chemical companies — effectively developed an entire model of industrial agriculture. 

Today, pesticides touch every aspect of our lives, from residues on our produce to increased chronic disease to biodiversity loss. It’s time for a dramatic shift in our food and farming system. 
Our regulatory system is not doing its job. More than 1 billion pounds of pesticides are applied every year on U.S. farms, forests, golf courses and lawns. Farmworkers and rural communities suffer illness throughout the spray season and beyond, and infants around the world are born with a mixture of pesticides and other chemicals in their bodie…

You're Right You Don't Need Me

I was just wondering how that's worked out for you and I can see that you were right and I was wrong all along. I told you that your strategy or your leaders strategy was designed for failure but you told me how you were so much smarter and better than me that you could handle it on your own. And that you didn't need Chris and his crazy VoteStrike or General Strike's at all, right?

You told me how you were giving all of your money and belief to an idiot because he could prove that Obama's birth certificate was a fake. And that you were willing to pay to take it to the Supreme Court. So now I'm just wondering how that has worked out for you? Please tell me that you remember telling me that you were going to have Obama removed from office for forging a government document and he'd pry be arrested and charged for said crime as well, right? Remember?

Remember when…

USAF Orders Stand-Down to Combat Rising Suicide Rate

The US Air Force has ordered all units to stand down for a one-day operational pause to address rising suicide rates, the service said.


Every unit will select a day between August 1 and September 15 to spend looking for ways to address suicide in the service, it said.

The Air Force said it has had 78 suicides so far this year, 28 more than this time last year. "Suicide is an adversary that is killing more of our airmen than any enemy on the planet," Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein reportedly told commanders.

The US Air Force has ordered all units to stand down for one day to address rising suicide rates, the service said in an emailed statement.

As part of the "Resiliency Operational Pause," each unit will select one day between August 1 and September 15 to look at ways to address this problem, it said.

Police chief: Officer faked shooting, distress call

Image
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama police officer staged a shooting last month to make it look like he was under attack, a police chief said Thursday.


Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith said that Officer Keith Buchanan made a distress call early July 21 while patrolling an isolated area.

Shots could be heard in the background, and an abandoned police car was later found with a bullet hole. He was later found moaning on the ground.

The police chief said investigators determined the event was staged after they, "found nothing to support the officer's account of this incident."

"Our investigation has concluded that this entire event was a hoax, the radio call, the shots fired, the help call, lying injured on the tracks, the damage to the police car, all a hoax," Smith said during a news conference. Smith said they are seeking charges against Buchanan, who has been relieved of his duties. Buchanan is on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of an inter…

Trump Nationalists Against The Rest of America

Image
And on the front lines will be people of color and transgender Americans on one side. The other will be composed of Donald Trump’s most ardent loyalists. The New Yorker was the first to suggest that the United States, in the wake of President Trump’s unusual victory and subsequent reign of terror over minorities would effectively split the nation in two. Thus far, every one of the predictions made has come to fruition with frightening accuracy. The Trump administration has set out to achieve one thing above all else; Split the country in two halves. Dividing cultures and communities prevents them from organizing against him while his fan base stays in tact, propelling him.


Since taking office, the President has waged an internal war on transgender people, threatening our safety and security in our very own homeland. He’s banned the very word “Transgender” and rolled back legislative protections made during Barack Obama’s tenure as Commander in Chief. He’s attempted to b…

"Civil War"

"What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Some men you just can't reach...
So, you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it!
Well, he gets it!
N' I don't like it any more than you men." *


Look at your young men fighting
Look at your women crying
Look at your young men dying
The way they've always done before

Look at the hate we're breeding
Look at the fear we're feeding
Look at the lives we're leading
The way we've always done before

My hands are tied
The billions shift from side to side
And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
For the love of God and our human rights
And all these things are swept aside
By bloody hands time can't deny
And are washed away by your genocide
And history hides the lies of our civil wars

D'you wear a black armband
When they shot the man
Who said, "Peace could last forever."?
And in my first memories
They shot Kennedy
An' I went numb when I learned to see
So I ne…
