From Eileen Dannemann
From: Eileen...I don't believe in petitions to the government...but I do in a local setting and in this case. So, please follow the Cornucopia instructions. Cornucopia is the huge distributor of organic food in this country.
From what I can tell, Cornucopia has done the proper homework on this issue. The NOSB Handling Committee's draft recommendation would undermine the review process by allowing an entire class of synthetic substances to be used in organic processed foods without individual reviews of the substances. People who are concerned with both the substance of the recommendation, as well as the integrity of the review process, should submit comments to the NOSB.

In conventional foods, the government allows the use of toxic pesticides, genetically engineered crops, and novel synthetic additives that have not been tested for safety. As organic consumers, we say: “No thanks, we’d rather not be part of this huge uncontrolled experiment!”
Organic foods offer an alternative, but some pro-corporate members of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), the panel set up by Congress to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on organic standards, would like to open the door to all synthetic additives to be added freely to organic foods—as long as they have, theoretically, nutritional value.
Any “nutrient” synthetic additive that comes on the market would become fair game for organics, even those that have never before been part of the human food system, chemically extracted with toxic solvents, grown in genetically engineered feedstock, and otherwise produced in ways that would shock any organic consumer.
Synthetic “nutrient” additives often have no scientifically proven benefits, and act primarily as corporate agribusiness marketing gimmicks.
We must reject this outrageous proposal! The USDA is encouraging citizens to send them your comments. The members of the NOSB and the National Organic Program need to hear the following message from organic consumers, farmers and businesses:
• The NOSB Handling Committee’s proposal to allow any and all “nutrient” additives —without the required vetting as required by Congress—in organics is outrageous.
• Essential nutrients that are required by the Food and Drug Administration should remain allowed in organics—but the organic standards should not be broadened to allow any synthetic, novel, untested “nutrient” additive created by agribusiness and biotechnology corporations.
• Please reinforce that all synthetic additives should continue to be individually reviewed and approved for use in organics.
• Reports from parents and health care professionals suggest that some infants react with diarrhea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal symptoms to two unreviewed synthetic additives already in organic infant formula. This should not be tolerated in organics!
The synthetic “nutrient additives” DHA and ARA, added to infant formula despite extremely weak scientific evidence of their benefits, and reportedly linked to serious gastrointestinal side efffects in some infants, provide a striking example of the importance of keeping the organic standards strong.
The committee proposal is couched in terms of consumer “maximum freedom of choice” and “harmonizing government agency rules.” Consumers who wish to consume synthetic nutrient additives that were not carefully regulated by the National Organic Program are always free to buy conventional foods. If this proposal is accepted by the full Board at the April meeting, there will be one clear winner: corporations whose synthetic, non-organic, novel and untested additives will be allowed freely in organic foods.

NO MORE McMEAT IN CANADA! Don't even buy their coffee... Be a PROUD PROTECTIONIST!
If you eat at McDonald’s, you need to read the following:
CANADIAN Beef (Alberta Beef is the Best)
THIS IS A GOOD DECENT MAN WHO TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE THIS
AND HE SIGNED THE STATEMENT INCLUDING HIS CONTACT INFO:
I'm sure those of you who aren't in the cattle business don't
understand the issues here. But to those of us whose living depends on
the cattle market, selling cattle, raising the best beef
possible...This is frustrating.
This will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for a drink.
The original message is from the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association.
Canadian cattle producers are very passionate about this.
McDonald's claim there is not enough beef in Canada to support their
restaurants. Well, we (ACFA) know that is not so. Our opinion is they
are looking to save money at our expense. The sad thing of it is that
the people of Canada are the ones who made McDonald's successful in the
first place, but we are not good enough to provide the beef.
We personally are no longer eating at McDonald's, which I am sure does
not make an impact, but if we pass this around maybe there will be an
informed impact felt.
All Canadians that sell cattle at a livestock auction barn have to sign
a paper stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cattle any part of another
animal... South Americans are not required to do this as of yet.
McDonald's has announced that they are going to start importing much of
their beef from South America . The problem is that South Americans
aren't under the same regulations as Canadian beef producers, and the
regulations they have are loosely controlled.
They can spray numerous pesticides on their pastures that have been
banned here at home because of residues found in the beef. They can
also use various hormones and growth regulators that we can't. The
Canadian public needs to be aware of this problem and that they may be
putting themselves at risk from now on by eating at McDonald's.
Canadian ranchers raise the highest quality beef in the world and this
is what Canadians deserve to eat. Not beef from countries where quality
is loosely controlled. Therefore, I am proposing a boycott of
McDonald's until they see the light.
For me, everything is not always about the bottom line when it comes to
jeopardizing my family's health, that is where I draw the line.
I am sending this note to about 30 people.
If each of you send it to at least 10 more
(30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x
10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth
generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION
I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you?
Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you,
please pass this message on.

Where is the government when such agonies are happening to American citizens? Oh, that's right, these people have no money. They're useless eaters. They aren't worth the air the elite breathe. Give them an aspirin and let'em die.
Notice, the Gulf isn't in the news any more... like it all magically disappeared.... replaced by yet another disaster, more lies, more propaganda. The idiots have taken over the asylum....
Those poor people who helped with the clean up are dying in the gulf.
Thousands of Gulf Oil Spill clean-up crew are dying! Video of the dying!

What with all these earthquakes popping up everywhere even in places not supposed to occur...read this!!!!
Subject: Where to Go During an Earthquake
This is the text version of my earlier email styled 《Save your life with "The Triangle of Life"》(see below)
further elucidating on the life-saving concept of "The Triangle of Life"....
Folks, please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this with your loved ones:
Where to Go During an Earthquake
Remember that stuff about hiding under a table or standing in a doorway? Well, forget it! This is a real eye opener. It could save your life someday.
EXTRACT FROM DOUG COPP'S ARTICLE ON 'THE TRIANGLE OF LIFE'
My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI ), the world's most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.
I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries. I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years, and have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.
The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under its desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene -- unnecessary.
Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a space or void next to them - NOT under them. This space is what I call the 'triangle of life'. The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch collapsed buildings, on television, count the 'triangles' you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common shape, you will see, in a collapsed building.
TIPS FOR EARTHQUAKE SAFETY
1) Most everyone who simply 'ducks and covers' when building collapse are crushed to death. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.
2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. You can survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next to a bed, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.
3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.
4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.
5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.
6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jamb falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!
7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different 'moment of frequency' (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads - horribly mutilated. Even if the building doesn't collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.
8) Get near the outer walls of buildings or outside of them if possible - It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked.
9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.
10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.
Spread the word and save someone's life...
The entire world is experiencing natural calamities so be prepared!
'We are but angels with one wing, it takes two to fly'
In 1996 we made a film, which proved my survival methodology to be correct. The Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul, University of Istanbul Case Productions and ARTI cooperated to film this practical, scientific test. We collapsed a school and a home with 20 mannequins inside. Ten mannequins did 'duck and cover,' and ten mannequins I used in my 'triangle of life' survival method. After the simulated earthquake collapse we crawled through the rubble and entered the building to film and document the results. The film, in which I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable, scientific conditions , relevant to building collapse, showed there would have been zero percent survival for those doing duck and cover.
There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for people using my method of the 'triangle of life.' This film has been seen by millions of viewers on television in Turkey and the rest of Europe, and it was seen in the USA , Canada and Latin America on the TV program Real TV.

In 1994, the Sheriff of a small, rural Arizona county, Richard Mack and six other sheriffs fought an Arizona gun control law-the infamous Brady Bill. That year, Arizona's Federal Judge, John Roll ruled favorably in Sheriff Richard Mack's case, which allowed Mack to continue his fight to the Supreme Court. In 1997 the Supreme Court, in an historical ruling against the Federal Government, agreed with Judge Roll and ruled that the Brady Bill violated the Fifth Amendment as well as the Tenth. Federal Judge John Roll was subsequently killed in the Gabrielle Gifford Tucson tragedy.
Sheriff Richard Mack, is the author of 4 books including From My Cold Dead Fingers, a clear and concise explanation of precisely why Americans need to preserve the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and County Sheriff: Americas Last Hope, providing irrefutable evidence from case law, common law and the constitution that it is the Sheriff, a locally elected official who has the jurisdiction and the authority to protect the citizens from threatening federal entities, federal agents, enemies both domestic and foreign. Sheriff Richard Mack will be the featured speaker at the new Sondheim Center in Fairfield, Iowa, this Sunday, March 27th, 1:00 - 4:30 p.m.
Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that all vaccine manufacturers are completely immune, held harmless, for any and all cases of vaccine injury. Yet law forces citizens to be vaccinated with dozens of vaccines under the threat of being denied a public education, health insurance and employment. Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center, Washington, DC, will open the event hosted by Clyde Cleveland, author of Common Sense Revisited. Ms. Fisher is considered, the nation's first and foremost leader of the vaccine movement…the movement concerned with upholding the sovereign right of the individual to dissent from being vaccinated by force, unlawfully detained or quarantined by the government. "There is no other word for this but Tyranny." - Barbara Loe Fisher
Quotes from the Speakers:
Sheriff Richard Mack: "Thomas Jefferson warned 'when all government shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided, and become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated." The question is... "When government becomes venal and oppressive, to whom can the people turn to for peace, safety and freedom?"
Barbara Loe Fisher: "Exploitation of a captive people by a pharmaceutical industry seeking unlimited profits, a Prescription for Tyranny. Our citizens are subjected to mandatory use of dozens vaccines under the threat of being denied a public education, health insurance and employment. There is no other word for this but Tyranny." – Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (www.NVIC.org) The largest, oldest and most experienced vaccine safety and informed consent watchdog in America! Barbara will appear by video conferencing.
Clyde Cleveland: "We can peacefully, and lawfully, re-inhabit our sovereign status and eliminate oppressive, top-down, de facto, federal corporate system in favor of a de jure, bottom-up, "By, of, and For the People”, Republic form of Government… This is what was intended by our founding fathers, and for which many in our country have given their lives to protect." Clyde Cleveland, Author of Common Sense Revisited (www.CommonSenseRevisited.com) and a Representative of the Republic for the united States.
