As a peaceful warrior, I would choose when, where and how I would behave.
With that commitment, I began to live the life of a warrior.

Knowledge Is Power

The government ought not to be able to shut people down like they do, but I do believe they should be able to inspect and monitor and report. Some producers are criminally negligent. But they should only shine a light on things. Let consumers decide.
The guys with the guns... on a farm? Get real! Those folks need better priorities.
Went to a party where some teachers were complaining that girls as young as 7 are starting to get breasts. There are way too many steroids and junk pumped into our livestock - and even our vegetables. And even stuff after harvesting, during processing. We even have to be careful of our whole foods because of stuff they spray on them for preservation and to make them less-appealing to parasites.

Right on Jeff! You are right on. Especially on the inspect, monitor and report. Whether it is natural, conventional or otherwise produced! No matter how you choose to eat, food IS big business.

Fortunately we as consumers can vote with out dollar. Where we spend our money unites us and gives us power to make change.

Knowledge give us the opportunity to think for ourselves.

Agreed! Get Real (hence the name of this blog ;-)). Scare tactics aren't the answer and won't make the wrongs right by force.

Hopefully we can continue to educate the people (parents, teachers, even kids) on natural clean whole foods vs. processed, contaminated and chemical laden dead foods.

Whew! Eat healthy, think clearly and live fully~ jgirl
