i am reading a lot about what is in our food. articles about foods we eat every day that we should never touch. like can tomatoes. something about the acid in the tomatoes and the can causing a chemical reaction. things like how the hamburgers that are served at fast food places are made. the fact the yummy creamy filling in your twinkie is made with shortening. i think this is horrible but the worst part is that our gov't has put their stamp of approval on all of this. the FDA and USDA and EPA all gov't agencies that cost millions of dollars to run and according to them, the food we eat is "safe".
yes. not only "how can they allow this" but how did we let the gov't have so much control over our lives?
ppl i talk to say, "but what are we supposed to eat?" the truth is, so much of our diet is made up of this processed food, the animals (beef, fish, chicken, etc) which are injected with growth hormones and antibiotics, the "fresh" food, veggies and fruits, are sprayed with pesticides. think about the report they did on the morning news show about how young girls are going thru puberty at astonishingly young ages (maybe all the growth hormones in the food they eat?) think about the antibiotic resistant bugs out there? think that might have something to do with the amount of antibiotics we are ingesting thru our food?? think about the rise in the number of children with ADD ADHD and autism. the chemicals in our food? the pesticides in our food and drinking water?
how did our country get here? our gov't is running on loans from china and our hard earned money is spent on junk imported from that same country. what sense is that?
millions of dollars are spent by our gov't on programs like medicare, medicaid, schools, farm aid, etc. and millions of those dollars go straight into politicians pockets, scammers pockets, and even other governments. millions of dollars are going into the school system. i heard that it cost over $6,000 per student per year. i have 2 problems with that. why so much? and why are the schools broke and closing programs and even schools themselves?
our food and water is poisoned and approved by a gov't that's corrupt and/or ineffective. and yet we voted into ofc ppl that said they would cut spending and the second they tried, everyone starting screaming "omg, you can't cut THAT!"
we are in trouble people. wake up and smell the coffee. don't drink it, it probably has chemical additives in it. that's why it costs so much.
