Vitamins Outlawed?

Is there a threat to our health freedom? Codex Alimentarius is Latin for "food rules". In 1962 the organization was born when the UN established the Codex Alimentarius Commission or (CAC) as a "Trade Commission. According to the National Solutions Foundation at, Codex will go into global effect on December 31, 2009, unless we, the People, take action and avert it. Codex classifies nutrients as toxins and sets ultra low so-called safe upper limits for them. If you take vitamins or supplements you need to read more at: The sites are full of great information but they aren't laid out in the best way. I found a 5-minute Tour about Codex Alimentrius. I wanted to share it with you but when I tried to put together a trail through these web sites, I was unable to get back there. Still, lots of good info.

Military Recruiting at Schools -RE Post

The Army Times is reporting that the Defense Department has announced a new get-tough policy with colleges and universities that interfere with the work of military recruiters and Reserve Officer Training Corps programs. Under rules that will take effect April 28th 2008, defense officials said they want the exact same access to student directories that is provided to all other prospective employers. The Army Times says, students can opt out of having their information turned over to the military only if they opt out of having their information provided to all other recruiters, but schools cannot have policies that exclude only the military, defense officialls said in a March 28 notice of the new policy in the Federal Register. The new policy also no longer lets schools ban military recruiters from working on campuses soley because a school determines that no students have expressed interest in joining the military. If other employers are invited, the military has to have the same access. Federal funding can be cut off if colleges and universities do not give recruiters and ROTC programs campus access. While student financial assistance is not at resk, ohter federal aid, especially research funding, can disappear if a school does not cooperate. Here's a link to the Army Times story: Locally, Dave Meserve is circulating petitions called the Arcata Youth Protection Act and the Eureka Youth Protection Act. AN ORDINANCE TO PROHIBIT THE MILITARY RECRUITMENT OF ANY PERSON UNDER THE AGE OF EIGHTEEN. Since these would be passed by the voters and not the school boards, this new military policy would seem to be exempt from cities that pass such ordinances by popular vote. Find out more about Dave Meserve's ordinances here: How do you feel about recruiting kids under the age of 18?

Gay marriage in California

So a bunch of Conservative California Supreme Court judges decided that people had to be treated equal under the law. What's wrong with our elected officials doing their jobs? These judges were all elected with more than 70 percent of the vote with the exception of 1, that only got a paltry 68 percent of the vote. In the year 2000 Californians polled, were against gay marriage by a margin of 55 to 38 percent. Last year that gap closed to 48 percent against to 46 percent for gay marriage.
It is my belief that if people don't want to marry someone of the same sex, they shouldn't have to. It's always the same argument, "what will I tell my children?" How about the truth! I think Roy Zimmerman said it best in one of his songs called Defenders of Marriage. It's about people defending marriage from people who want to get married. It is my belief that the biggest problems with marriage these days are divorce and the economy. All you right to life-er, Conservative, anti gay, pro war thinking people should consider this, seldom do gay couples have abortions. They do adopt though. I know I'm going to get some reaction from this post, especially from certain religious persons. I just ask, what did Jesus say about gays or gay marriage? I'm not looking for some quote in the old testament or something Paul said, I want red letter Jesus quotes from you people that, based on your religion, don't want gays to have this right.

Contrails or Chemtrails?

What is going on in the skies? Does anybody look up anymore? I awoke about a year and a half ago and saw this in the skies. I raced to the store in Trinidad and bought a disposable camera. I then took these pictures.

Do commercial jets get lost and do horse shoe patterns? Was it just sky writing in some language I don't understand? One thing for sure, this happens almost every day and YOU'RE BREATHING IT!

I report these when doing the weather on KGOE and nobody ever calls or questions me about it. We have smog controlls on our cars and stuff and this crap is supposed to be just fine?

Here's what some are saying about these. and

I don't remember this growing up. This all seemed to start about 12 years ago and it's getting worse. We had contrails that dissapeared after a few minutes but not ones that spread out and became a hazy, overcast, rainbow sheen, planet cooling, blue sky robbing mess in the skies.

School Military Recruiting Could Violate International Protocol

According to an article by the Inter Press Service today (5-14-08), the United States is violating an international protocol that forbids the recruitment of children under the age of 18 for military service. Here's a link to the story at Common
Dave Meserve may have something here. He gathered enough signatures to place a measure on the ballot in Arcata Ca. that would ban the military from doing this very thing.
Here's a link to Dave Meserves measure.
I talked about this earlier in my blog, check the archives.

Cynthia McKinney

I had the pleasure of doing a short interview with the Green Party Candidate for President this morning and I was impressed. Cynthia McKinney is articulate, charming and not afraid to speak truth to power! She's even willing to talk about the inconsistencies surrounding the attacks on 9/11/2001. I have a serious problem with the official conspiracy.
Although I am not currently registered as a Green, I am now seriously considering making the change. The Green Party represents many of the same values that I believe in. The environment, workers rights, health care, non violence and the quest for truth. Cynthia, you may have just made a Green out of me.

S.F. Giants on KGOE

While they don't live on KGOE, sometimes we have a local conflict such as HSU sports that conflict with the S.F. Giants on our sports station, kata 1340. When this happens, KGOE gets to host the San Francisco Giants. Would a Giants game on kgoe cause you to turn to another station? Leave a comment.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

It is in just about everything except the sweetener isle in your supermarket. If it's so good, why can't you buy it? Oh yeah, you can get products with it already in there but just try to buy a pound of it at Safeway. It is not sold retail because there is no demand. People don't want it.
Good news for people that don't want High Fructose Corn Syrup in all of their foods. This article from Flex News says that due to high cost, a move back to sugar is happening. HFCS is destructive to the planet, read this from the Washington Post.
HFCS is made from genetically modified corn and is not an equal balance of glucose and fructose as cane and beet sugar is. Avoid this stuff when possible and learn more about it.
Save the planet and yourselves, boycott this stuff!

Veterans Health Care Act

The following is a guest blog from Carl Young. Mr. Young is the Chapter Vice President of Vietnam Veterans of America, Ferndale Chapter 781.

By Carl Young
When is someone going to ask Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and Barack Obama, about the VA’s health care programs? I don’t hear any of them talking about a pending bill-H.R.2415 and it’s companion bill S.2639-that could finally give some assurance of quality health care for all of America’s veterans.
" The Assured Funding for Veterans Health Care Act" is currently under review in the House Committee on Veterans Affairs. It’s been there for a while as our congressional representatives fear they might lose their oversight ability, which in my book would be a good thing because of their history of under-funding and even delaying budgets.
There’s no doubt that the haphazard funding congress has been giving needs more review. One of the original co-sponsors of H.R.2415, Representative Bart Stupak (MI), has come out and said that the bill would address the problem by changing the way veteran’s health care is funded in Congress.
"The brave men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation should not need to fight so hard each year for the health care and benefits they have earned. The history of cuts and overdue budgets for our veteran’s health care is no way to honor our service members," Stupak said in a recent Associated Press release.
George Washington certainly had it right when he said that,"... the willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directionally proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation."
The history of cuts and overdue budgets for our veterans health care today, is no way to honor them. "It is illogical to put a cap on VA funding when it is impossible to put a cap on the number of those wounded and injured in service to their country.," said Larry Scott, founder and editor of VA
It’s obvious that current system needs to be replaced with a new funding system that is more realistic, like one that is indexed to medical inflation and the per capita use of the VA health care system.
Some have tried to argue that passing this legislation would take away oversight authority. In fact one could argue that this funding mechanism would provide our worried legislators with more time to oversee all veterans’ program areas. So in spite of claims by the U.S. Justice Department that the congress or the courts has no authority to tell the VA how to run their programs, it might be time to set them straight.
Recently U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka (D-HI), Chairman of the Veterans Affairs Committee, called for the resignation of Dr. Ira Katz, mental Health Officer for the Department of veteran Affairs, following reports that Dr. Katz was involved in efforts to cover up the number of veterans attempting suicide.
Why hasn’t our Congress been more aggressive in overseeing why the VA hasn’t done more to prevent suicide among our veterans? They need to be transparent and they need to spend the funding they get on programs as intended.
A recent study released by the Rand Corportation estimates that 300,000 U.S. troops-about 20 percent of those deployed-are suffering from Depression or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from having served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
I am asking Congressman Thompson (D-CA) to co-sponsor the bill and help bring it out of The House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, and into the light of day. I encourage everyone to write Congressman Thompson and to ask for his support on H.R.2415. Let’s spoil their little game of "let-it-die-in-committee," and let our elected officials know we care about our veterans.
The only way to get a politician’s interest is to show them that their constituents-that’s us-want the right thing to be done for our service men and women.
I leave you with one more thought; always look at the way a politician actually votes-and not by what he tells you from behind a podium.
