Killing fertile land - for profit
Another discovery I have made... Is how Capitalism is killing our Planet Earth...
There are methods to farm... That use no plowing... No fertilizer... No pesticides...
Once fertile lands have been destroyed... Only to make you buy soil enhancing products... Genocide...
Hybrid seeds... AKA Terminator seed... Promoted in Honduras... Worthless... You can not use the seed to plant again... You are forced to buy seed again... Genocide...
I am witness to a D.C. group working here in Honduras... Claiming to offer free irrigation systems... They only go after the farmer who has money... And they persuade you to buy a host of chemical warfare... Promoting destruction of fertile farms... Genocide...
”I am convinced that the truest act of courage, the strongest act of manliness is to sacrifice ourselves for others in a totally non-violent struggle for justice.”
Land is life!

Paolo Lugari's 7 secrets for creating creativity
1. Ban brainstorming meetings: Creativity is spontaneous. Formal meetings are a poor forum for creation. People choke because they show up for a limited time with a narrow agenda. Turn every workday into a continuous, open-ended brainstorming session.
2. Practice da Vinci's code: When your organization tackles a problem or a project, wipe the board clean of all assumptions and prior knowledge. "Leonardo da Vinci expressed it best," Lugari says. "Step one is a tabula rasa."
3. Play nice with others: At Gaviotas, new technologies grow out of a process of tweaks and upgrades, with a variety of contributors adding their own nuts and bolts. "These inventions came out of spontaneous, collective thinking," Lugari says. "We don't like prima donnas."
4. Burn the corporate policy manual: To think freely, you have to act freely. A fanatical dedication to free speech - unencumbered by top-down prohibitions - has produced a Gaviotas mind-set in which unproductive behavior melts away of its own accord.
5. Rule out "degree-itis": There is no hierarchy based on titles; a peasant worker gets the same hearing as a Ph.D. One of the most important revenue streams at Gaviotas - the production of industrial coatings and resins from pine pitch - evolved from an observation made by one of the cooks.
6. Master the art of indiscipline: Big breakthroughs are often the result of people crossing disciplines. Mendel was a priest before he was a biologist; the fuel cell was invented by a lawyer. So rotate your specialists out of their specialties and promote generalists ahead of narrowly focused experts.
7. Trash your Outlook calendar: Give up time-management tricks and devote each hour of every workday to whatever task or inspiration arises spontaneously. If you keep filling your week with scheduled meetings and tasks, you'll snuff out your creative sparks before they have a chance to fly.
¨What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
Our land is more valuable than your money. It will last forever. It will not even perish by the flames of fire. As long as the sun shines and the waters flow, this land will be here to give life to men and animals. We cannot sell the lives of men and animals. It was put here by the Great Spirit and we cannot sell it because it does not belong to us¨

" Fallacy of bomb shelters
It is only materialistic people who seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil. Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow race.
They are all one, brothers."

A new documentary was aired on French television - a documentary that Americans won’t ever see.
The gigantic bio-tech corporation Monsanto is threatening to destroy the agricultural biodiversity which has served mankind for thousands of years...

but the cultivation and perfection of human beings."

"In Nature animals and plants lead an interlocked existence. The connection could not be closer, more permanent, or more crucial. We can observe this partnership in operation in the forest, in the prairie, in marshes, streams, rivers, lakes, and the ocean." But not on too many of our farms.

¨Cuba experienced petrocollapse when the Soviet Union dissolved in 1990 and today more than fifty percent of the vegetable needs of Havana’s 2.2 million people is supplied by local urban agriculture—in smaller cities and towns the rate is between eighty to one hundred percent. In Cuba farmers are now among the highest paid workers.
A new book called A Nation of Farmers: Defeating the Food Crisis on American Soil, is nothing short of a call to arms for local food proponents. Co-authors Aaron Newton and Sharon Astyk call for a grassroots-led agricultural revolution that would result in 100 million people becoming farmers.¨

Hemp's Suppressed Medicinal History
c. 3,700 B.C Emperor Chen Nung (Shen Nung), classifies hemp as one of the“Superior Elixirs of Immortality”.
Li Shi Chen (1573-1620) compiled the most extensive Chinese Materia Medica, called Pen T'sao Kang Mu which states about hemp: "The Ancients used this medicine to remain fertile, strong and vigorous . . ." and hemp seed will "aid in the growth of the body’s muscle fiber…"
Quoting books even older, the Pen T’sao proclaims that whole hemp seed is useful "to mend and help all of the central areas and benefit the chi [life force]."
In Chinese medicine, hemp seeds fall under the categories of sweet, neutral, and clearing heat, operating through the channels of the stomach, large intestine, and the spleen and remain widely used today as one of the 50 "fundamental" herbs in traditional Chinese medicine.
The medicinal potential of marijuana is well documented in North America also--in 1860, for example, the convection of the Committee on Cannabis Indica of the Ohio State Medical Society reported on cannabis' therapeutic applications in treating a vast number of ailments, including: mania, whooping cough, asthma, chronic bronchitis, tetanus, epilepsy and withdrawal from alcohol.
Between the years of 1840 and 1860, more than 100 articles were published in the medical community recommending it for various disorders.
Although the extent of the medicinal value of cannabis is debated by some, well-documented beneficial effects have been published over thousands of years. Among these are: the amelioration of nausea and vomiting, stimulation of hunger, (in particular in chemotherapy/ AIDS patients), lowered intraocular eye pressure (shown to be effective for treating glaucoma), as well as general analgesic effects (pain reliever), and the list goes on.
Highly obscured, (until the interent), yet even more remarkable, is mounting evidence showing that cannabis may CURE a variety of conditions including cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and depression.
On October 7, 2003 a patent entitled "Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants" (Patent No. #6,630,507) was awarded to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, based on research done at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
This patent claims that cannabinoids are "useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases." It states that this 'new found' property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of ailments.
"The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia." Synthetic cannabinoids are marketed as Marinol in the United States and Germany, and Cesamet in Canada.
On 19 October 2009 the US Deputy Attorney General issued a US Department of Justice memorandum to "All United States Attorneys" providing clear clarification and guidance to federal prosecutors in US States that have enacted laws authorizing the medical use of marijuana and recommending against prosecuting patients using medical cannabis products according to state laws.
If indeed the sun has been hijacked by techno to blame Climate Phenoms...
This could explain the massive increase in Climate Disasters...
If Sunspots go in hibernation...
The sun can not be used to hide or enhance Climate Manipulation...

It must be implemented in the very near future...
