GMOs and Monsanto

What are GMOs?

GMOS are genetically modified organisms. They are plants or animals that have been genetically engineered with DNA from bacteria, viruses and/or other plants and animals. These experimental combinations of genes from different species cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding. They are basically, mutations.

In the U.S. 80% of conventional processed foods contain or are GMO food(s).

Here is a link to what some crops or at risk crops/animals are:

Now you may be asking yourself if these GMO foods are safe… Most developed nations actually banned the use of GMOs, including but not limited to: Australia, Japan, and all the countries in the European Union. They have been proven to cause health problems and risks. They have very strong links (if not 100% proven) to cancer and infertility.

“GMOs and the environment: Over 80% of all GMOs grown worldwide are engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, use of toxic herbicides like Roundup has increased 15 times since GMOs were introduced. GMO crops are also responsible for the emergence of “super weeds” and “super bugs” which can only be killed with even more toxic poisons like 2,4-D (a major ingredient in Agent Orange).

GMOs are a direct extension of chemical agriculture, and are developed and sold by the world’s biggest chemical companies. The long-term impacts of GMOs are unknown, and once released into the environment these novel organisms cannot be recalled.” – As stated by The NON-GMO Project

“Also, because GMOs are novel life forms, biotechnology companies have been able to obtain patents with which to restrict their use.

As a result, the companies that make GMOs now have the power to sue farmers whose fields are contaminated with GMOs, even when it is the result of inevitable drift from neighboring fields.

GMOs therefore pose a serious threat to farmer sovereignty and to the national food security of any country where they are grown, including the United States.”

Breastfeed without fear...

Stop handguns before they stop you (or someone you love)….

Despite some of you who still want your “right to bear arms” let me just show you this… and although it may not seem like a lot, the numbers (in other countries as well) are rising. Yes, guns don’t shot themselves, but they DO kill. It would be a hell of a lot harder to stab someone to death than shot them. It is a “hands free” method that many deem cleaner, and less violent (like that makes sense) because they aren’t doing it themselves.  It’s funny how when these “It’s my RIGHT to be armed” people see the horrors these weapons can cause and they themselves are left in the aftermath, THAT’S when the change their minds… when their 5 year old baby boy or girl, was ripped from life by some evil piece of garbage that was drugged up on SSRI’s (or any other anti-depressant, etc) and used their “right” to bear arms. Could you look in the mirror after and honestly still feel so hard-assed abut your silly right?

Rants #5 – You need an education in cleaning, damn near CLEAR!

UPDATE: LITERALLY A FEW MINS AFTER I POSTED THIS A HUGE ASS BUG WAS KILLED – IT HAD INDEED COME IN THROUGH THEM LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN…

Okay, so I am staying in a college dorm with my fiance and his roommate and his “girlfriend (I put it in quotes because they aren’t really together – just having sex and she takes his money) and let me just say this 26 year old man and his 23 or so year old girlfriend NEED HELP! They do not know how to clean! He comes from a wealthy family and she does as well (yet she asks him to buy her a 10,000 laptop and to buy her fast food everyday, 4 times a day – no lie, they eat out at the same fast food joint 4 times a day, EVERYDAY… an it is starting to show on him) and apparently they were never taught how to clean or take out trash or flush with the lid down or even piss in the toilet and flush! It isn’t even her room! She throws her hair onto the floor and counters in the bathroom and kitchenette. Chunks of long, black hair… He pisses on the floor and throws his t.p. into the toilet and never flushes. Both him and her use MY TOILET PAPER (even though he has a whole pack of Charmin) and he just used all my air freshener today even though he has Febreze! 

So, I put up a sign on the door to keep it shut because they also allow big water bugs and bees to come in to the room (they leave the door open all day). I come to find they crumbled my sign and etched with a pencil point that they come in through the hole in the door. WHAT?!?!? I TAPED THE HOLE IN THE DOOR AND THEY WERE THE ONES WHO TOOK THEY TAPE OFF!! And why is it so hard to shut the goddamn door?!?!? Everyone else did! In reality they should clean their piss off the floor and keep their shoes off inside because they bring mud onto my fiance’s side or the room… so it could be worse… I clean his room -FOR FREE –  and he has the balls (or lack thereof since he wrote it and didn’t ask me why I wanted it shut, even though it said why) to tell me it doesn’t matter when there is a tiny hole in the door?!?!? BEES DON’T FLY IN THROUGH THIS HOLE! RIDICULOUS! Why does he and his gf think it’s ok to use MY STUFF and then tell me to let them leave a door open when I CLEAN THIS MAN”S PISS AND PUBES OFF THE FLOOR?!?!? His gf also used my fiance’s dish towel to dry her dirty hands on. This Saturday my fiance and I are moving out so THANK GOD! No  more cleaning up after these dumb assholes.

Let’s Start The Fight – Ignore “Ana” and “Mia”

So before some of you misunderstand what I mean by this post let me clear it up. The names Ana and Mia (as well as a few other names for other mental illnesses) are being used to hide or describe the eating disorders Anorexia and Bulimia. In this day in age freedom of speech is being taken WAY too far. There are websites out there telling people of all genders and ages to starve themselves/diet/vomit or hurt themselves, or even kill themselves. These sites even have”tips” and links to sites to buy any items necessary.  The sites are run my older men, older women, and even CHILDREN. That’s right children are now telling other children how to become anorexic/bulimic. Sharing pictures, insane diets, quotes, ideas, etc. These sites are being labeled as “self help” and for those in recovery – all lies. I have found some sites that claim to wanna help those with eating disorders, actually telling their followers “you are only pretty and worth it, if you’re not eating”. As someone who has had an eating disorder, this disgusts me. It is NOT fun, it is NOT pretty, it is NOT worth it. It IS a LIVING HELL.  Your skin dries out and peels, your hair will fall out, teeth will be lost, as well as the hundreds of other health problems that result from eating disorders.  It consumes your every thought and it becomes you. That’s why seeing girls as young as 10 years old telling other young girls to starve themselves and take diet pills – disgusts me as well as frightens me. So I’ve decided to blog about it. To expose how sick and detailed this not so underground train-wreck really is. They are allowed to do all this -freedom of speech… I want to change this. Same reasons why yelling “fire” in crowded theater isn’t considered freedom of speech… I want to add these sites onto that list.  

Rant #4 – Are You Friggin’ Kidding Me Part II

I found this article on:   http://www.cafemom.com/articles/pregnancy/167047/jenelle_evans_gets_raked_over?utm_medium=sem2&utm_campaign=prisma&utm_source=taboola-z&utm_content=0&non_us=US

 

This is part two of a rant I previously did on her.

 

“Teen mom Jenelle Eveans has been pregnant four times. Let that sink in and roll around in your head for a few moments while we get ready for the next shocker. Of the times Jenelle has been pregnant, one resulted in her son Jace, one is her current pregnancy, one resulted in abortion, and one was miscarried. And it’s the latter one that is causing the latest Twitter brouhaha.

Jenelle, in a tweet to a follower, said she could not remember the date of her miscarriage last year. To be sure, having a miscarriage is a horrible thing and I am sure it caused her pain when it happened. At the time, she was in a messy relationship with Courtland Rogers and she made claims against him that it was his fault she lost the baby.

But the fact that she can’t remember the date of her miscarriage has caused many to question whether she even cares. She has been called “pathetic” and many, many other mean thing I won’t repeat here, but let’s just say people are pretty angry on Twitter. But why?

I have known a number of women who miscarried and I even had a chemical pregnancy (early miscarriage) myself eight years ago. I don’t remember the date and I am not all that sad about it, especially since I was pregnant with my daughter one month later. Does that make me an awful person?

Of the people I know who had miscarriages, the responses have varied from some who were absolutely devastated beyond belief and who continue to grieve to this day and those who barely think about it an can’t remember the date or even the year. The reality is, there is no one “right” way to respond to a loss like that.

Jenelle may not have been completely ready for a baby. She may not have felt it was a good time. Hell, maybe she was even relieved. So what? Who are we to judge? The way a woman feel about her own body and her own pregnancy is none of our damn business.

This sanctimonious, greater-than-thou assumption that we should somehow be allowed to dictate feelings and judge them accordingly is not doing anyone any favors. I am sure Jenelle has grieved the loss in her own way, but does she have to suffer forever in order to make it OK? And if she can’t remember the exact date, is that somehow implying she doesn’t care?”

Rant #3 – Food Court Paranoia

So I am at the food court in my local mall. I was originally in a seat that didn’t have an electrical outlet (and for some reason they have free wifi but only one electrical outlet in the whole food court) so I moved up to the only table that was near one. I don’t know if it is me or if the food court employees are just being oddballs but while sitting up here they have proceeded to stare at me nonstop and send the same woman over to clean the same table (no one was even sitting there the FIRST time she “wiped” it down) several times as well as walk the same path by me. It may not seem like a big deal but it is just a little more than annoying because every single employee at the the one food bar is staring at me like I am a leper. Is it because I have a soda from an outside store? If so we are near a friggin’ beach and the prices in the food court are HORRIBLE so of course on a hot, sunny day I’m gonna bring a 99 cent drink inside instead if that same drink for $2.50. I have a receipt so they KNOW I didn’t steal it. Is it because I am 4 foot 10 (inches) and I look like I should be in school (I am 19!)? I also thought maybe they think I am a worker that isn’t reporting for duties, but they’d realize that after several “take a picture it’ll last longer” moments. Regardless of the reason it is quite annoying (and a little disturbing) that these people are supposed to be working yet they feel the need to watch me type.

Rant #2 – Are you friggin’ kidding me?!

So I was reading up on some celebrity news when I came across a picture of Jenelle Evans and saw she looked somewhat “normal” compared to her usual pictures in the headlines. However as I proceeded to read I saw what she was in the headlines for… she is getting divorced after being married for a whopping 16 months. Not only is she divorcing (or now divorced) her partner in crime (they were once arrested together for possession of heroin) she is currently pregnant YET AGAIN with “boyfriend” Nathan Griffith’s baby.  She spouts off to her friends (and anyone willing to listen to her sorry ass life stories) she “fully expects him to put a ring on it”. So let me get this straight, you divorced you husband because “you weren’t good for each other” and you aren’t even fully divorced yet and you are carrying ANOTHER MAN”S BABY who also ISN’T GOOD FOR YOU. Someone wants their life to get even more fucked then it already is.  How come idiots like Jenelle can get married, divorced, remarried, and have and KEEP her kids… yet loving gay couples can’t get married or adopt? Are you friggin’ kidding me?!?! People like Jenelle honestly DON’T deserve these privileges (I call them privileges because that is EXACTLY what they are… not rights. Not everyone can adopt or marry or even have kids. This is 100%proven) and yet we still deny those who would do an awesome and better job the opportunity to get married/adopt. Ridiculous. 

Rant #1 – Why do some pregnant women brag about drinking alcohol?

I am going to start off by saying while I have not yet been graced with the gift of a child, I still know common sense having raised babies and young children (plus some if this is just COMMON SENSE). I was reading posts and articles on one of my favorite baby sites called babycenter when I come across a rather scary trend of posts… pregnant women stating (some bragging about having NO guilt) that they have been drinking alcohol or “sneaking stiff bourbons” while pregnant and FULLY AWARE they are indeed growing a baby inside them. First off, WHAT THE FUCK?!!?!!? Why are so many pregnant women willing to openly admit them are consuming alcohol, and some of these women admit to drink more than “just” wine or beer. I then proceeded to read the rest of the posts. I come to find out it was a blogging area for pregnant women to post what they were consuming that they know is unhealthy for their child. Now let me just say this – I get it. There are TONS of restrictions on what pregnant women can eat, drink, consume, do, bathe in, etc. I also get cravings happen. HOWEVER, some of these “no-nos” as they were calling them (as if they were trying to lessen the blow and pretty their admission up) were there because it is a HIGH RISK health risk. Cigarettes and alcohol being the main ones. There were many others on that list but I won’t go too much into detail (but let’s just say this… the reason you cannot eat RAW FISH is due to the fact that you are at HIGHER RISK for salmonella, you should stay away from caffeine because it can cause defects in your child later on, not to mention make you more jittery than normal. Also is it best to stay away from ANY raw foods like cookie dough or eggs because again, salmonella or bacteria). Why is it women are willing to risk Fetal Alcohol Syndrome just for a stupid vice such as alcohol… ONE DRINK is all it takes. Your child may be PERFECTLY healthy and still have F.A.S. Look at their facial construction… is it a little off? Does it fit the classifications? Does your child get frustrated easily, trouble focusing? Again, the signs and symptoms of F.A.S. may not be noticeable or there may be none at all, but is it really worth it? Just because your child “is perfectly fine” doesn’t really mean they are, or maybe you were just very lucky. Either way, I hope the stupid train quits making stops at your platform, for everyone’s sake.
