Palm oil, an ingredient in thousands of everyday products from snack foods to shampoo, is ubiquitous in our grocery stores and homes. Unfortunately, the big brands behind our favorite products often use palm oil responsible for tropical deforestation. As tropical forests are cleared or carbon-rich peat swamps are drained and burned to make way for palm oil plantations, carbon is released into the atmosphere, driving global warming and shrinking habitat for endangered species.
Days ago, responding to Russian military intervention in the Crimea, President Obama denounced Russia for a “breach of international law.”
The Russian intervention deserves criticism. But let’s be clear. The message from the White House is: Do as we say, not as we do.
Yea, so, I’m thinking Chuck Hagel and his comments on the new budget for the military smells a little like he’s been reading The Art of War. Consider the following passage from author Samuel B. Griffith’s book “Sun Tzu The Art of War:”
If your against medical cannabis or even on the fence, please watch this. The truth will set you free, if you'll take the time to listen to it.
The crises in the Ukraine may escalate into an East/West confrontation. Putin feels that Russia’s sovereignty (what remains of it since the collapse of the former Soviet Union), is threatened by U.S.
I took the time to learn about the earth's crust and I was amazed that the most abundant element in the crust is oxygen. We certainly cannot see the oxygen, although geologist can deinfitely measure its prevalence. While learning the most abundant elements in the crust, I was even more flabbergasted that all of the most prevailing ingredients with the exception of aluminum and titanium, play critical roles in the human brain and immune system, and in near the exact porportions in which they are distributed in the crust.

Call what they do in either country what you want, but both in America and Russia public officials and those they attract profit at the expense of the People.
In no way shape or form would I ever impugned Mr. Buffett. But on the other hand I do not agree with every business decision he has made. Here in my home state Mr. Buffett sells power to the public. He gets tax deals and rate raises as required. I am all for that because it's cleaner energy it is renewable. So this is not a criticism of Warren Buffett. This is a comment on the philosophy of the marketplace that he has been forced to do business in.
Greetings friends and neighbors.
I take extreme exception to Congress abridging our First Amendment. My site - DuPage Politics . com lists those voting YEA to giving Obama control over our First Amendment freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and right to redress government for grievance. HR-347 was the first abridge of our democracy since Lincoln stopped a Copperhead news paper from printing damaging articles against the Union.
