Happy 4th of July, Uncle.

"If you’re black, you’ve got to look at America a little bit different.  You’ve got to look at America like the uncle that paid for you to go to college…but molested you." ~ Chris Rock.

Happy birthday uncle…

With every swipe of an EBT for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance program (SNAP) - JP Morgan/Chase, ACS/Xerox, Northrop Grumman, or   makes money as the contractor with the USDA. The 99% continues to feed the 1%. The food offered is the product of food processors and agricultural biotech companies such as Monsanto / Conagra to make sure we remain weakened, medically dependent on big pharmaceutical companies like Eli Lily, Pfizer, Merck, Bayer…

Occupy with the 99% and protest CONTROL by the 1%. 
Governments and Corporations should RESPECT The People.

I appreciate the satire brought through in this song by Chapter. It isn’t a celebration… realize your status as a tool of the system when you consign bringing life into this world in exchange for the welfare benefits received.

Welcome to the effects of a dumbed down world.
I want to change this in the world I live in.  Is it too late?

"I Like Money" from the film Idiocracy (2006)- the premise is given 500 years on our path of the dumbest percentage of people propagating faster than intelligent will. Watch it and be stupefied.

Michigan is causing deaths in Detroit

The imposed Emergency Manager has requested the city’s water department cut off water indiscriminately to 3000 households each week. No consideration of ability to pay, young children or elderly. This is what privatized water companies practice in their policies.

We also hear the EM wants to privatize the water. Note the ties to the State of Michigan proclaiming and doing everything it can to break a city that doesn’t fit it’s PURE MICHIGAN plans.

Numerous filings against the bankruptcy claim it was falsified by the state.

There is a big picture of human rights injustices. The mainstream will pick and chose how to frame the situations. Big picture is State of Michigan wants to remove Detroit undesirables, transform the city with Chinese venture capital assistance, and move the city farther into industrialization. Pollution in 48217 zip code is the worst in Michigan and surrounding areas can’t be much better.


From article at UN.org

“Disconnection of water services because of failure to pay due to lack of means constitutes a violation of the human right to water and other international human rights,” the experts stated in a news release.

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has been disconnecting water services from households which have not paid bills for two months, and has sped up the process since early June, with the number of disconnections rising to around 3,000 customers per week. As a result, some 30,000 households are expected to be disconnected from water services over the next few months.

The news release noted that due to high poverty and unemployment rates, relatively expensive water bills in Detroit are unaffordable for a significant portion of the population.

Fracking Chemicals Found to Disrupt Hormone Function

"University of Missouri researchers have found that 11 chemicals commonly used in fracking for oil and natural gas are endocrine disruptors, while water near hydraulic fracturing drilling sites had greater hormone-disrupting properties than in areas without drilling."

"Endocrine disruptors interfere with the body’s endocrine system, which controls numerous body functions with hormones such as the female hormone estrogen and the male hormone androgen. Exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals has been linked by other research to cancer, birth defects and infertility."

“Fracking is exempt from federal regulations to protect water quality, but spills associated with natural gas drilling can contaminate surface, ground and drinking water,” Nagel said. “We found more endocrine-disrupting activity in the water close to drilling locations that had experienced spills than at control sites. This could raise the risk of reproductive, metabolic, neurological and other diseases, especially in children who are exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.”

Multiple Threats To Endocrine System Health

Our endocrine systems are already under assault from Genetically Engineered (GMO) crops such as corn and soy. Rises in diabetes, liver disease, kidney failure, and hormonal development are linked to the food we eat.

Fear Of Quoted Minimal Impact

Our government is likely to test and say there is minimal impact from fracking… what they need to reveal is the wide number of factors impacting our health rather than minimize any one of them.

Low-income families are often hit the hardest. Foods with genetically engineered (GE) ingredients are often priced lower and made more accessible through food pantries and the like. Where these families live can often be close to industrial waste, or corporations will go through their land (seeing the family as financially incapable of mounting legal defense).

The compounding of all these factors sets up systems of impact far greater than each one individually. It also allows the massive impact to be marginalized by any one industry. This means people impacted are held at fault for keeping up with their health - however the ENVIRONMENT is what is impacting them more than their daily practices.

Systematically our society is wiping out the poor with disease, discomfort, and putting them into institutionalized illness. Pharmaceutical companies are profiting from the rise in illness and complicated medical conditions requiring a cocktail of pills be taken by many whom are under medical care.
