The Fight for Real Organic Food Continues

Spartan of Truth

From Waking Times

Alex Pietrowski, Staff Writer
Waking Times

Greed and power in the food industry is turning a trip to the grocery store into an objectionable experience, as processed and factory foods are further pushed onto the unwitting public.

On the positive side, however, most of us now have plenty of organic  options, providing we know where to shop and how to find the good stuff. From fresh organic produce, to organic and compassionately farmed animal products, to a variety of delicious organic packaged foods, it is now easier than ever to eat healthy and stay away from unwanted pesticides, antibiotics, GMO ingredients, and synthetic additives in our food.

And now that Proposition 37 in California to label GMO foods has been defeated by the food industry and a sleeping populace, it is more important then ever to know how how to access and support the…

Just be an excellent carrot. – channeled by Ron Head November 8, 2012

It is time we spoke of the things which are happening inside of you as you increasingly entrain with the frequencies of light which are surrounding you.

For some this will seem far outside of their frame of reference still.  But for the greater number, who have been paying attention to their inner changes for a longer period, we will mention these things so that they may know that they are not unique in their experiences nor are they even rare.  There is a purpose in all of this, as you well know.  That purpose is to raise your energies, your understanding, your consciousness, to a level which will permit your ascension to a higher state of being in the very near future.  This is resulting in some common… let us call them symptoms… which you may recognize in yourselves.

There are those among you who…

Recipe: Caramel Apple Hand Pies

Po' Boy Livin' Rich


Hand pies are a New Orleans tradition thanks to local business Hubig’s. Unfortunately, with Hubig’s currently not in operation due to a devastating fire (they promise to rebuild), I had to make my own hand pies to get my fix. But, all in all, I’m proud of how these Caramel Apple Hand Pies turned out.

I’m a huge fan of caramel apples so I whipped up some caramel and mixed it with the apples to create the caramel apple filling.

Ingredients:

For the Caramel:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 TBSP unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup water


For the rest:

  • 4 pre-made pie crusts
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, finely chopped
  • 2 Honeycrisp apples, finely chopped
  • 2 TBSP cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP sugar
  • 2 egg yolks

Directions:

For the Caramel:

  1. Heat sugar and water in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. When sugar…

One National Leader

Black History 360*

Speaker of the House John Boehner didn’t give the President the courtesy of a congratulatory call; instead he issued a line in the sand and an implied threat. Bipartisan–or bully? In his party, he is the defender of the orthodox faith: taxes are bad and special interests come before the people’s will.

President Obama received 9 million fewer votes on Tuesday than he did 4 years ago. Even with a 13% shrinkage in his totals he only lost 2 states he carried in 2008, Indiana and North Carolina. The GOP lost more than 2 million votes from 2008 despite their $2 billion investment. Why didn’t it pay off?

Because of people like Boehner, the Party’s presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, his chair, John Sununu, and pundit Newt Gingrich, the GOP is a shrinking collection of districts and states at odds with the agenda America wants to see for the nation, at…

Right to vote

Bell Book Candle

Exercising the right to vote is a principal expression of the freedom of speech guaranteed by the Constitution and the foundation of all our other rights. Even in a heavily contested national election, approximately one-third of all eligible voters don’t vote. Why not? In some cases, potential voters think that there is little or no difference among the candidates. In the past, I have occasionally cast my vote for a candidate with no chance of winning as a protest to express my displeasure with the choices. I did that in the 2000 election when I voted for Ralph Nader.

Many voters don’t vote because they believe that one vote does not make a difference, or that it does not matter to them personally who is president or governor or mayor. Some voters cannot afford to take time from a job in order to vote. A national paid holiday on…

The brilliant and talented art work of Ron Bryant

~~~~~O~~~~~

A new day has dawned

This was the most difficult 9 years of campaigning Liberals will ever go through again. The changing dynamics of how elections are won is forever changed by Obama’s strategy. Together with Nate Silver (pollster) and Rodell Mollineau of American Bridge (tracker) calling out right wing lies, most of our research work will be done for us activists. Our job will be to continue to educate and share,  but it will never ever be as difficult as the last 9 years of trying to track the lies and convince people they are following the liars. 

I believe the right wing is toast. They can learn Obama’s strategy all they want. However, they will never be able to relate to the people they want to screw because they’ve been exposed. They will resurface and remake themselves. But we…

Today’s FYI: Obama’s true legacy

DoubleyooTeeEff

 

In the immediate aftermath of the election, many pundits began shaping a new political narrative: that these next four years will be the ones in which Barack Obama cements his presidential legacy. Several commentators and columnists have speculated on what we will remember most about Obama when his presidency ends – his election as the first African-American president in our nation’s history, the Affordable Healthcare Act, the Osama Bin Laden raid, or something that is yet to come during his second term. All of these ideas have merit, but I would suggest that Obama’s true legacy may be something else entirely.

Over the past 48 hours, a lot of the post-game chatter has been concerned with the way that minorities shaped this election. It has been pointed out, repeatedly and with great emphasis, that the vote turnout by the Latino and African-American communities was the key to President Obama’s…
