Bo Rinaldi on adopting a plant based lifestyle

Host Robyn Shanti welcomes guest Bo Rinaldi, who calls himself a “bloodless revolutionary” and believes that the only way out of this matrix of Corporatocracy we find ourselves in, is by adopting a plant based lifestyle.

Bo is one of the pioneers of the organic movement in the US and has been a vegan since 1960, when at 12 years old, he cured himself of asthma and other allergies by following a vegan diet in just two weeks. What Bo proposes now is that a simple plant based diet can cure what ails us, saving us tons of money, support our local economies better than any other action and free us from the matrix of control known as 'food', which actually kills us, medicines that mask symptoms and businesses that pillage the lands and peoples.

Why is the Black unemployment rate double that for whites?

Why has the Black unemployment rate stayed double that for whites since the 1940s? Lisa Loving's guest today is investigative reporter Andy Kroll of Mother Jones and TomDispatch.com. His recent article is,"What We Don't Talk About When We Talk About Jobs: How Racism, Global Economics, and the New Jim Crow Fuel Black America's Crippling Jobs Crisis." He writes, "Nationwide, the unemployment rate for black workers at 16.2 percent is almost double the 9.1 percent rate for the rest of the population. And it's twice the 8 percent white jobless rate. ... Since the 1940s, the jobless rate for blacks in America has held remarkably, if grimly, steady at twice the rate for whites.

Charles McGee II and Amanda Lawrence from Josiah Hill Clinic on Lead in your Blood

 Hosted by Lisa Loving

Charles McGee II and Amanda Lawrence from the Josiah Hill Clinic join us in the KBOO Studio to talk about the importance of being tested for lead levels in the blood, even for adults.  Most of the emphasis around lead has centered around lead exposure to children because their growing metabolisms are more easily damaged.  However, the effects of lead poisoning on adults is no less serious.

The Josiah Hill Clinic provides free blood-lead testing for children and certain adults.  If you are an adult with a high risk of lead poisoning, you can be tested for free at the clinic.  Call (503) 802-7389 for details.

Callers offered the following tid-bits:

The Portland Development Council will give you a FREE Lead Testing Kit from their Lead Hazard Control Program.

The Metro Sustainable Living Program has information on Green Cleaners

Starting at about 45:00 minutes into the show, a listener from New York lists off a number of Green products that pass muster with her Homeopathic partner.

And, of course, we would not have a problem with lead at all if there was no PROFIT in using it.  To create a society that is not driven to destruction by the insatiable lust for PROFIT, consider contacting the Freedom Socialist Party for possible solutions.

Rosalind Peterson and the Agricultural Defense Coalition

 Hosted by Marianne Barisonek

 

Rosalind Peterson, founder of the Agricultural Defense Coalition, wrote the following:

The Agriculture Defense Coalition is dedicated to protecting agriculture, our water supplies, trees, and pollinators from a wide variety of experimental weather modification and atmospheric testing programs and experiments.

These experimental programs will cause a decline in agriculture crop production, exacerbate declines in tree health, and add toxic chemicals to our water supplies and soils.  Just the use of salt particles to make clouds brighter will salt up drinking water in watersheds and cause increases in salt in drinking and agriculture water supplies.  The continued use of salt particles in clouds will make productive crop producing soils unusable for agriculture and change fresh water to salt water.  The results will be long-lasting and will affect trees, birds, mammals, fish, watersheds, pollinators, crop production, rivers and streams.   

Toxic chemicals used in experimental atmospheric testing programs by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, and NASA are already showing up in drinking water samples across the United States.  The California State Department of Heath, Drinking Water Division in Sacramento, CA, is the repository for all public drinking water tests results required by the State of California and the EPA.  These tests showing increasing (spikes), levels of toxic chemicals used in atmospheric tests.  (For More Information on these Tests Check the Website by Chemical Name or Go to the NASA Section or the U.S. Navy Section which list some of these Experiments.)

In the United States anyone may modify or mitigate your weather or climate without your consent.  Any government agency, the military, state, county, city, private corporation, weather modification company or individual can modify your weather at any time. No public notification is required other than to report these programs to the United States Interior Department, NOAA.  However, it has been learned that many programs are not reported to NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration). 

U.S. Senate Bill S601 (initiated by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison), could be passed by the U.S. Senate at any time.  This bill funds experimental weather mitigation and modification programs, does not require congressional oversight, sets up a board of directors who essentially may take bribes and be in office for years, does not have public oversight, public notification or public consent requirements.  This bill expands experimental weather modification and mitigation programs in the United States.  (For More Information on this Topic and a Listing of Curent and Ongoing Weather Modification Programs from NOAA Check the Weather Modification Section of this Website.)

Upper atmospheric testing contintues without public oversight or consent and with little, if any, public notification.  Now Global Geoengineering Plans to reduce the amount of direct sunlight reach the Earth (Solar Radiation Management), are beginning to be planned for our future.  The use of toxic chemicals and other upper atmospheric particle releases are planned.  There have been three hearings by the U.S. House of Representatives Science & Technology Committee since November 5, 2009.  Testimony has only been from those, for the most part, promoting Geoengineering. (For More Information about the Negative Consequences of these Experiment Check the Geoengineering Section of this Website.) 

The ADC also works to educate the public about a variety experimental programs that will negatively impact agriculture and our pollinators.  This site is dedicated to providing educational information about current legislation, experimental programs, atmospheric geoengineering experiments, and other issues that will affect all of us...our water supplie, tree health, and our crop production.  We hope that you will find this site a useful educational tool, research site, and a place to more clearly understand how experimental programs, which may or may not be voted upon by our elected officials, change our lives without our consent, debate or prior notification.

Respectfully,

Rosalind Peterson, President
