LOL- Only any person of reason and deduction could easily easy answer the question!




LOL- An initially quaint/naive question (by some), though the answer is quite simply obvious to me.... Corporate greed will not put the funding into research and development to make it efficiently possible to use safe and truly clean solar. If they did, the masses would then be able to have their own power at home for free (after initial cost of setting up solar units). The Greedy would rather use financially profitable and dangerous methods (oil/coal burning and -UGH- the biggest and MOST absolutely STUPID nightmare- nuclear) which line their pockets while polluting to the point of RUIN -earth, air, and water- rather than be concerned for future Mother Earth and ALL her inhabitants!

Our basic right to know if food is GMO- just like in 64 other countries

Hi,

Safeway, Starbucks and Target have something in common: They’re all dues-paying members of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), a group that is determined to deny you the right to know if your food contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Last year, the GMA spent $2 million to help defeat California’s Prop 37, a citizens’ initiative that would have required mandatory labeling of GMOs in food products in California. (In all, GMA and its members contributed about half of the $46 million spent to defeat Prop 37). Now the GMA is at it again, pouring money into the campaign to defeat a similar initiative, I-522, in Washington State. By supporting the GMA, Safeway, Starbucks and Target are working to defeat your right to know. The battle in Washington State will have a huge impact on consumer rights. If I-522 passes, food manufacturers will likely reformulate their products, rather than label them. And if they reformulate their products in Washington State, they’ll likely reformulate them for all states – just as they’ve reformulated them in Europe and other countries that have GMO labeling laws. If we want the same right that consumers in 64 other countries have, we must demand that right. We must win in Washington State in November. We can start by making it clear to Safeway, Starbucks and Target that we won’t support their companies or their products, until they support our right to know and pressure the GMA to do the same.



That's why I signed a petition to Steven A. Burd, Chairman, President and CEO of Safeway, Howard Mark Schultz, Chairman & CEO of Starbucks, and Gregg Steinhafel, President, CEO & Chairman of Target Corp., which says:

"The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), of which your company is a dues-paying member, contributed more than $2 million last year to defeat Proposition 37, a California citizens’ initiative that would have required mandatory labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food products. Now, the GMA is so far the largest donor to defeat a similar initiative, I-522, on the ballot on Nov. 5, in Washington State. By supporting the GMA, your company is supporting efforts to deny me a basic consumer right, one that consumers in 64 other countries have. I will not spend one more dime on your products until your company supports my right to know if my food contains GMOs. Specifically, I want you to support I-522 by making a substantial donation to the YES on I-522 campaign. I’m also asking you to demand that the GMA support consumers’ right to know, and if it won’t, that your company withdraw from the GMA. The New York Times just published a new poll showing that 93% of consumers want mandatory labeling of GMOs. As a consumer, I choose not to support your company or your products until you support my right to know.

8^(

 It is a difficult time and place we now live.  Certainly, not the same America I was raised to believe in for aspirations of good on so many levels.  I am sure people who know me well have tagged me with many negative labels for being aware in multiple issues.  Many refuse to look, blindly hiding their head in the sand- the "willfully ignorant".  Others are sheep.  Perhaps, some will fit into the lucky percentage that will remain unaffected in any given point, for a while.  In this case (like many other issues), I am ever amazed the capital hill law makers and their aides are exempt from "law" (though not surprised).  Likely, these subsets of humans will never see and/or care. 

 Welcome to the new Amerika.  The place that seems to let go of values we ought to have learned throughout human history. 

 Yet, everywhere I turn, no one can dispute facts that eventually come into the light of day once people's egos and stupidity are personally touched with truth...  When finally, they or someone they care for becomes slapped in the face and broadsided by reality.  "Belief" is not the same as "truth".  Thanks goes to the fates and those enlightened teachers (like my late David) that I can still cling to a "belief"... A hope, in the least, that the next plane in our quantum energy will NOT be touched by the hand of man.  At least our hopes and "beliefs" - be they true and "real" or bigoted and false from ignorance- can not be taken away... Changed only by a new existence.

Utility

I just received a call from Oncor.  54 hours later- close to the "48" they told me... though I am truly surprised they called back at all.  Mr Chris Easdon explained to me that the Oncor company is in the process of getting the public utility company services (PUC) to allow an "opt-out" for any customer that wishes to go back to the old style meter.  They must ask permission to do "opt-outs".  This is following suit of California that passed the option earlier... 

Again, from my previous experience with the service agents, he was surprisingly polite and said he understood where I was coming from.  He claimed he was also one that has issue with EMF and RF radiation exposures.  He said that I will be placed on a call back list to be provided with the outcome as soon as it is decided.  Further, that he claimed he truly felt it would be favorable to my -and others- needs.  He even gave me his office number to call, if I wished to ask about the progress or had questions in the meantime.  As I stated before, I was not even allowed to have that number before today...

Among some his suggestions for immediate closure of the issue, was one involving an expensive move of the unit to the back of the property.  If you do not know or remember... currently my unit is within 2 feet of my head at my favorite spot (until day before yesterday) where I liked to sit on my "deck" area and view the back yard.  Another was that they could "reduce" the amount and frequency of (choke)-"safe" radiation from my unit. However, he admitted as they all "talk" to each other all the time -channeling info neighbor to neighbor up to entire 'hoods- that is really little help as my unit would have to talk more with others.  (This, BTW, is admitted evidence of the lack of security of your info, but that is another research project for you, I already found out...) 

He also offered his opinion that action for the opt-out will take place in the next month or two as they have been pushed with a dead-line by the Texas Senate ("docket 40190") by end of this spring (2013)... Though I would be willing to pay it, It is unfortunate- and typical- that he assumes (like in California) to have a meter reader come to my home will be at a monthly additional charge.  (in Ca. it is $10.00 per month)... However, anyone that has experienced what I am dealing with, will understand that would be worth it.  The tin hat I am wearing since has actually reduced (not eliminated) the tinnitus and discomfort in my head...

Love to all from the Lunatic Fringe, (BTW, the tones at the beginning of this song are like what is full blast in my head morning to night)
